Bugs / Glitches

  • No Mastery Compensation: Attempting to claim the Geely GC9 as a Mastery reward if the player already has the car will not give anything as compensation.
    • It was fixed with 10 extra pro inventory slots.
  • All vehicles shown: Pressing "Enduro Vehicles" in the Lamborghini Aventador SV's EDD event causes the garage to display all 224 vehicles in the game (except the Villain Wheels), which also allows the player to upgrade any vehicle even if they do not own it yet.
    • Upgrading an unowned vehicle (except for vehicles used in the EDD) will cause players to be banned for 14 days.
  • No Loading Screen: When replaying races, the game did not show a loading screen and had a shorter load time.
    • Different Traffic Pattern: When replaying a race, any map with Traffic will not have its patterns reset, and on maps that no longer have traffic, such as London and Iceland, traffic will appear on subsequent replays.
    • No Nitro Sounds: Similar to the traffic pattern glitch, a replayed race will not play the sound effects for Nitro engaging, switching Nitro levels, triggering a Perfect Nitro or Nitro burning.
      • These bugs/glitches only occured when the player launches a game without internet connection.
  • No Sound Effect:Tapping on a Championship location would not play a sound effect.
    • This was fixed also on April 13, 2018.
  • Longer loading times (Android): All race events now take nearly a minute to load compared to nearly 30 seconds, posing a problem in multiplayer.
  • Login error: If the player tries to connect or reconnect the game to Facebook, the game freezes momentarily before restarting without the game being connected to the social network.
  • Ad placement (Windows): The placement of advertisement banners is not in it's usual place, blocking navigation and certain buttons. This is noticeable in the booster select screen.

Trivia

  • This update has the firsts of the following:
    • The first to add a Danish vehicle.
    • The first since the Rio de Janeiro Update to add a Dutch vehicle.
    • The first since the Rio de Janeiro Update to be released for Windows before Android.
    • The first since the Car Blueprints Update to not add any new D Class vehicles.
    • The first to change a purchasable vehicle into a Mastery Reward vehicle.
    • The first to add a motorcycle which has only 5 MAX upgrade stages.
