No other e-sport game is having bugs as rapid as in TrackMania Nations Forever, at least that can make such a big impact on the result. So it's quite safe to say the game wouldn't loose any popularity or interest in competition or e-sport context by removing the worst of it.
In my opinion, the less random outcome created by the game engine, the better suited for competition and high level performance.
Sure, the game might be slightly easier to master and loose some of the challenge by avoiding bugs, but It's not this fact that generates hard/exciting competition. This is generated by the players pushing the limits of the game. The more players that push, the harder it will feel to compete and the closer competition it will be.
I for one would feel more comfortable racing with the bugs removed, but I guess its all up to accepting the fact that they are here. The ramstein also plays an important role for avoiding noslides when crossing it, which should of course not be changed.
From what they said it will be a direct copy-paste, with identical blocks and gameplay and no additions. Since the engine is different PF tracks will be broken, though.
hey zooz sup?? xD
great news...maybe it gets a boost again for nations, and then i will return :>
and hopefully some good old players, too :)
why did you make me register just to troll here, it used to be so easy :(
The true question is "What is the reel objectif?"
A good game without bug, stay trackmania in biggest lan, update the graphick motor etc.. or just make money?
I'm fear but i hope.
