Hooray pay to win!Apparently they just rolled out some changes in the last couple days. They haven't communicated anything about it yet, but probably will eventually. If you're doing the Vendee Prologue without the Full Pack, you will have noticed. Also, if you're running the app on IOS or Android, it may not have updated there yet. I'm not doing the prologue, but my understanding is...
-It forces you to enter the game in 3D mode, which is pretty much just an annoying delay.
-The card game is gone. So if you never played with cards before and jump straight into Vendee and are confused by my comments in Post #10 about the card game... don't worry about it. That was something new since the last Vendee, but apparently now it's gone again.
-The BIG thing is with the programmation and waypoint schedulers. The last couple years, everyone has had 9 slots for whichever they're doing (or 15 if you have the VIP monthly premium service, but I don't know of anyone who does). So anyone could schedule 9 maneuvers or a string of 9 waypoints. If you didn't pay for the Full Pack, you'd spend a card for each maneuver or waypoint. If you had the Full Pack, you could do it freely up to the max of 9 at a time. Apparently the change is... With the card game gone, people who don't pay for the Full Pack are also feely able to schedule (good news) but... with a max of 2 (bad news).
Most of the time in offshore races like Vendee, the limit of 2 actually won't be too much of a disadvantage, as long as you can connect a few times a day. It'll be a bigger problem if you can only connect once or twice. The main disadvantages will be in places like the doldrums, where you can incur rapid windshifts requiring a chain of scheduled maneuvers. The real nightmare will be in other races, not Vendee... Coastal races where you need a string of waypoints to properly navigate a shoreline, for example. In races like that, Full Pack boats will have a huge advantage.
Anyway... give this some thought before deciding whether or not to pay for a Full Pack.
Right now it looks like I'll be coming in about 10 minutes after you finish.On iPad Air 2 iOS 14 reloaded the app can not log in at all....So went to Wife’s iPad Air iOS 12.4.8 old app no changes card barrel still there ,logged in game no update changes I set a slow waypoint to finish the prolog Vendee. On the other game the Genova tries barrel still there. Set a program to get to the finish area.
