    I don’t think this will happen soon, but I have requested it to the Asphalt Team. Maybe one day, it will be added :)

    I guess this was a hotfix that has solved an minor issue, but I didn’t get the details.

    Well, that’s not normal; you shouldn’t have to do anything to get them. Make sure to be online when you play though. Have you modified your device’s clock? If you did, make sure it displays the right date and time. If this doesn’t solve the issue, please get in touch with our customer care team. (And tell them that you haven’t changed your clock).

    Yes, we have seen this. The team is investigating, but I think you should be out of the CB pretty soon.

    I took a 24 hours brake from the game Saturday and was out of CB by mid day Sunday.
    I wrote that message because I saw lots of players on game forum, Facebook and G+ community are still affected.

    Lots of problems lately, after the TAG cup CB issue, the Devel Mp ĉup on Android canceled due to crashing issues and I still see a lot of people having issues with R&D not registering points, so CC has its hands full.
    Plus the new update is near.

    Wow, I haven't posted here in months. This forum appears completely jumbled up on my laptop screen, which doesn't help matters.

    Anyhow, Fabien, I want to thank the team for fixing the ghost leaderboard problem on iOS. Now we can finally see the ghost times of players that we've added on Game Center over the past year (instead of just old/inactive players), which makes ghost racing much more appealing and satisfying. I truly did not expect that this issue would ever get resolved, so thank you for exceeding my expectations.

    Prizes for Elite Nitro Cup are an insult or a joke. :D
    A 14500 tokens car needs at least a 500 tokens prize for Top 100 or Top 500, I mean that's how you encourage players to buy it and to compete for that prize.

    Looks like the servers are unavailable as of Saturday May 21. Several reports on Facebook groups as well. For me, I see:
    - The R&D event is not showing up.
    - Can't join multiplayer rooms
    - Can't join TLEs.
    - Can't claim TLE rewards.
    - Can see ads, and TLEs (just can't join).
    - Token based items can't be purchased.

    What is the cheapest way to all star all 9 seasons? I'm in season 5 with 200 stars without spending any money. I don't mind spending $5-10.

    Cant be done without spending hundreds of dollars.
    I play this game daily for almost 3 years and I have 140 cars from 146, and the cars I'm missing cost over 40000 tokens, that's around 200$ when they are discounted.

    What is the best way to grind for credits? That seems to be the limiting factor for me at this stage. I feel stuck because there's so many missions I can do due to lack of credits to buy the cars needed for the mission.

    You need a fast car max pro with a short track on Mastery 15 and with no traffic.
    Best is Mclaren 675lt, then Lykan. Before those I used Biome in season 9. So you need a fast car in London, Dubai or Alps.
    I always farm with the 675, with double credits 7 to 8 mil a day.
    At the beginning I didn't upgrade my cars more then a level or two, I preferred buying new cars to advance in career.

    Lambo R&D -- where are the engine cards

    The engine drop rate in the Lambo R&D Card sets is atrocious. Since you need at least 1 engine for every upgrade (and similarly, tech cards), those drop rates should be much higher than current.

    If you want to pro a car in R&D you need at least half of every card before starting that R&D.

    Follow what Asphalt Str wrote, he's a veteran. As for me, I started playing mid-March this year, and now I have 1385 stars, 92 cars, 551 mastery licences, and I'm on level 81 in multiplayer. Here's how I progressed as a beginner:

    - Bought car packs. That gave me I quick start instead of having to grind for credits. (I bought all car packs except for the Class S one. I would recommend to get at least Class D and C for a good start.)

    - In early seasons challenges can be completed with stock cars. So instead of upgrades I spent my credits on new cars that were needed to complete other challenges.

    - Most challenges can be completed with a car below the recommended rank. Improve your driving skills and you have to spend less credits. Try to master all challenges, including the driftings ones. Drifting is an important skill in this game.

    - Be very careful with the "steering sensitivity" setting if you play on a phone or tablet. The biggest improvement in my driving skills happened when I increased the sensitivity from the default 50%. I have it now at 100% and now I can take even hard turns like the one in Dubai (with a good car). The default of 50% is good for beginners but terrible as soon as you learn to drive better. Try to set it as high as you can handle. (You can still lower it for individual cars with very high handling capabilities, like the Ferrari 308 GTS or the Biome.)

    - Bought double credits and played a lot of challenges in a single day to collect stars. I could earn a lot of credits that way. I played an individual challenge until I could earn all 5 stars.

    - If you want to pro cars, you will need to buy LOTS of Pro Kit cards. If you have already enough stars then start buying 2 or 3 Pro Kit boxes each day. Make sure you use common cards to free up space in your inventory but choose carefully what you spend your rare & legandary cards. Start with lower level cars (listed first in their categories) as they usually require fewer and cheaper cards to pro. You can find more info over at https://asphalt.wikia.com/wiki/Pro_Kits

    - The most important: Focus on playing. Know where the fun comes from for you. Collecting cars and stars is not so important if you don't have fun along the way.

    Permanently lost 60+ licenses when upgraded

    @Fabien
    I have permanently lost more than 60 licences when upgraded to the new version today, due to the new way the licenses are distributed across the mastery challenges.Even though the loss is less than 5 licenses per car the total number is quite high. And the main problem is that those licenses are LOST FOREVER as there is no way to reclaim older challenges with the new licenses. This is unfair given how hard it is to collect those licences. I put a lot of energy in collecting them.

    I reported this to Gameloft. My ticket ID is 11813745. I appreciate if you can help me getting back those licenses that would be otherwise lost forever.

    I have BEFORE / AFTER screenshots for all cars (fortunately I did screenshots and videos from my whole inventory after another loss with the previous update). Here is my list (and I didn't even count cars where I lost 1 license only) and an example:

    Since licenses are stored on GL servers you should tell the dev team to develop an algorithm so everyone gets the same amount of licenses, this way the players that lost some licenses get them back and the players that tried to fool the system will get the same.
    This way you will avoid the CC flood.
