Which region's best?

#1i_am_takeruPosted 5/31/2009 1:08:31 PM
Basically I'm asking to know which regions the best to start with?

The best region to start out with is the one which has cars that you like.

Once you progress in the game, the only difference between regions will be which cars you unlock, and which cars you have your regional discount on.

Regional discount maxes out at 50% off of cars in your region, and climbs pretty fast, so pick the region that has most of your favorite cars.


If you're wondering what a good starting car would be for each region, here are my recommendations:
North America: Eagle Talon
Asia: Honda Civic 1.5 VTi
Europe: Volkswagen Golf GTi MK II

I recommend those cars simply because they are relatively easy to drive, have inexpensive upgrades and are eligible for A LOT of race early on.

Apparently it's against the ToU to give away cars in a racing game. No more free cars from me, I've learned my lesson about being helpful.

From the sticky topic...

Q: Which is the best Region to start in?
A: This is pretty much a preference question. However, many players tend to start in the American region because it allows you to select the Chrysler Eagle Talon as your starting car, which is an excellent car for A LOT of races.


For a big wordy answer, see this (region etc is at mid page):

I've been in Europe since day 1 (almost 2 years now) and would select it again if I had to start over.

Wow . . . just about everything mentioned in that region selection blurb is dead wrong. I can't believe a professional journalist could be so stupid . . .

I took North America and the Acura RSX.

I feel this is the best car in the region, but most disagree.

First, it suggests that you can get a starting car for 8 000 Cr. The cheapest cars in the game, before discounts, are 9 000.

Second, it claims that rarity is dependant on region. A car's rarity is exactly the same no matter what region you're in. Region changing never, ever changes the rarity of any car.

Third, it suggests to buy cars based on their top speed rating, encouraging people to buy the Lexus IS300 and Toyota Supra because they have a higher top speed. Top speed is useless when starting out. There are very few career races where it matters at all, and all of them are much later on. Every other possible statistic, including default stock paint color, is more important than top speed.

Then it suggests that your reward cars for driver levels are "usually from a manufacturer in your home region."
So they didn't even bother to check and find out that the correct word is "always".


You know what, ignore all those complaints and read a little further into the article, where you'll find this:
"Classes range from D (worst) to U (best) for production cars, with a separate ranking of R for specially-made race cars. Like in the first Forza 2, there are numerical rankings assigned to each car, but in Forza 2 2, these not only rank it within its class, but against all cars in the game. For instance, a D class of car will have a ranking somewhere between D145 (the lowly 1972 Lotus Elan Sprint) and D399. If a car's numerical ranking ever gets bumped up to 400, it would switch over to the C class. "

OUCH.

The first Forza 2? Forza 2 2??? XD!
A single R ranking? What?
Lotus starts at 145? Not in the Forza 2 2 I'm playing. I wonder if this was copypasta'd from an original Forza article and the guy didn't change anything except for adding too many 2s. And C starts at 401.
