Game Changes

Gameplay Changes

  • Pro Kit Boxes
    • Following an official announcement [1], Pro Kit Boxes now do not grant bike-specific cards.
      • This includes the A8Box Finish Line Box Finish Line Box which was one of the few boxes that had a very high drop rate of bike parts.
      • Bike-specific boxes can now only be obtained from Moto Blitz races. This makes it impossible to obtain any bike cards for players who have already played the available Moto Blitz seasons (besides buying the A8Box Special Offer Bike Box Special Offer: Bike Box for Tokens).
      • As there is no way left for theses players to obtain bike cards, the above-mentioned changes practically turn all bike upgrades into Token-only upgrades.
    • Not announced, but equally significant for the update: Pro Kit Boxes now do not grant Blueprints, except for the dedicated A8Box BP Box green Beginner BP Box and A8Box BP Box green Advanced BP Box.
    • Exceptions from the above-mentioned restrictions:
      • The A8Box Compact Shuffle Box Compact Shuffle Box † and the A8Box Compact Split Box Compact Split Box † still grant bike parts and blueprints. If players have any of these boxes left in their pending boxes list, it is advised to open them wisely, for example during a bike event.
      • The A8Box Ultra Box Ultra Box now doesn't grant blueprints, but did grant Rare Tech since the update (albeit with a very low rate of less than 1 %). As this may change with the next update, players searching for bike tech may consider using their Fusion Points for Ultra Boxes before updating.
      • The time-limited A8Box Enhanced Split Box Enhanced Split Box (A8Tokens 275 for 11 cards) still grants bike engines and bike parts. See box page for details.
    • New boxes: A8Box Rookie Biker Kit Rookie Biker Kit and A8Box Advanced Biker Kit Advanced Biker Kit. These boxes are only granted as rewards for Moto Blitz helmets and replace all other helmet rewards.
    • The amount of obtainable A8Box Finish Line Box Finish Line Boxes per day has been reduced to 1 for non-VIP players and 2 for VIP players (already prior to the update, after the end of the Spring Fling 3 Multiplayer Season).
    • The B-, A- and S-Class Parts Special Offer boxes now have two different prices, depending on where they are offered:
    • The content of A8Box R&D Box R&D Basic Kit Boxes and A8Box R&D Box R&D Advanced Kit Boxes has been redesigned. The percentage of Tech cards is now variable. This means that the official drop rates can no longer be used to infer a guaranteed number of Tech cards for every particular box, but show the average relative frequency in the long run.
      • This also means that there is no more distinction between type 1 and 2 boxes.
      • The number of engines and parts is still fixed for every box.
      • R&D Boxes from former events are not affected.
    • Players can watch an ad after opening a box to get an extra card twice a day.
    • The Hot Wheels Engine cards are now unobtainable.
  • All the vehicles added from this update onwards have a base nitro stat of 6 mph (10 km/h).
  • The amount of Credits obtained from regular Career Mode races has been significantly reduced. Example: Base credits for Season 8, race 39 (Dubai): A8Credits 1,200. Base Credits for Season 9 and McLaren Legends Season have been left untouched.
  • The Holden Coupe 60 is no longer Blueprint-buildable and has been removed from the Garage for non-owners.
  • Moto Blitz seasons are rebalanced.
  • MAX upgrades now require an online connection, presumably to prevent players that keep a single account on multiple devices from experimenting with MAX tunes.
  • Unlimited MP tickets: the refilling time per ticket was reduced from two hours to one minute.
    • Before the change, which took place on April 22, players entering free (non-ticketed) races were being rounded up into segregated lobbies, presumably to encumber team boosting.
  • R&D Proto Keys are now refilled individually.
  • The amount of Credits obtainable from watching a daily ad has been reduced from A8Credits 1,500 to A8Credits 1,250.
  • Lamborghini Egoista Blueprints and Season Tickets are no longer offered as rewards for watching ads.
  • The maximum amount of credits that can be multiplied via Double Credits from ads were reduced from A8Credits 6,000 to A8Credits 1,400.
  • The upgrade costs for 154 vehicles were decreased.
  • The upgrade costs for 94 vehicles were increased.
  • The ranks for the following 104 vehicles were changed:[1]

Exclusive Vehicles


Bugs / Glitches

  • Unavailable booster ads: Some players experience a vanished Play ad! button for Nitro Starters when starting races while the Tuning Kit button is still displayed. Workaround: Playing a Tuning Kit ad first lets the Nitro Starter button reappear (Android).
  • The screen for doubling earned credits by watching an ad becomes unresponsive if an ad is played, race restarted with the "Replay" button and the race is finished for the second time (seen on Android).
  • System notifications about keys and tires being fully restored appear right after the first key (tire) gets available instead of when all keys (tires) get really available (seen on Android).
  • McLaren 600LT display error: The 600LT may be displayed as three question marks (???) on the car name at some devices.
  • The following glitches still persist from the preceding updates:
    • Temporarily higher box prices: When the update is rolled out, box prices in Exclusive Deals jump back to previous much higher prices for players who haven't installed the update, even if it's not yet available for their platform (Android). Installing the update fixes the box prices.
    • Old School collection notification.
    • Aggressive AI after restarting races
    • Pro kit inventory doubled
