Tuning Kit ads available again for German players [Edit]
Nov 6, 2019 – Guy Bukzi Montag ASPHALT 8 ASPHALT WIKI
Since October 16, German players had their Tuning Kit ad button blocked by an ad for Falken Tyres. After talks of Asphalt Wiki and Falken Tyres, the company has now ordered Gameloft to remove the ad. Players can watch their daily booster videos again. Official statement from Falken Tyres: "All users should have the possibility to enjoy the game untroubled, because Falken stands for the fun of driving instead of anger. So we decided to stop our booster option to avoid misunderstandings. Julia Schehl, Marketing Department, Falken Tyre Europe GmbH."

Outlook: Blueprints removed with next update [Edit]
Oct 24, 2019 – Guy Bukzi Montag ASPHALT 8
The next update will remove further Blueprints from the game. See the list in the Blueprint removal section of the Blueprint article. Important: Players collecting Blueprints for one of the vehicles that will be removed with this update should consider opening their Advanced BP Boxes before the update: After the update, the boxes will most probably no longer grant the desired blueprints. However, players who are collecting for one of the remaining Blueprint vehicles (listed on the same page) should keep their boxes until after the update: As there are only few vehicles remaining, the probability of getting the desired cards will then be much higher because many unwanted cards will be out of the game.

Tuning Kits blocked by Falken Tyres ad [Edit]
Oct 16, 2019 – Guy Bukzi Montag ASPHALT 8 ASPHALT WIKI
Players in Europe are currently experiencing a removed ad button for Tuning Kits. We have reported this to Falken Tyres. The company was not aware that their ad is obstructing players. They apologize for the inconveniences and have announced to contact the game developers immediately in order to solve the problem as quickly as possible.
Box news: Boxes on sale and old friends [Edit]
Oct 12, 2019 – Guy Bukzi Montag ASPHALT 8 STATISTICS
– The Enhanced Split Box is recommended because of its good price and content.
– The drop rate of common cards in the B-Class Parts Special Offer has been reduced by around 10 %. As this also means that the drop rate of (common) B-Class Parts is reduced, this box is even less recommended than before. Players should only buy it as a last resort.
– Before blueprints are completely removed from the game: Players who still have Compact Shuffle Boxes and Compact Split Boxes in their inventory should know that these boxes still grant (common) blueprints. Those who are missing a few blueprints for some vehicles may want to open these boxes now.

Important! Advanced BP Box grants all Blueprints again! [Edit]
Sep 25, 2019 – Guy Bukzi Montag ASPHALT 8 STATISTICS
Not announced by Gameloft, the last update has removed the restrictions for the Advanced BP Box. Players are strongly advised to open their Advanced BP Boxes before the next updates turn the remaining BP vehicles into Token ones—especially if they only need a few more cards to assemble them. As some former Blueprint vehicles are already “out of the pool”, the probability of getting a desired Blueprint has even increased.
V8 drop rate study released [Edit]
Sep 25, 2019 – Guy Bukzi Montag ASPHALT 8 STATISTICS
The V8 drop rate study is finished and all data has been evaluated. The study deals with some of the most discussed questions among players:
1. Is there a “golden rule” that players have to keep a certain number of specific cards they need most?
2. Does the game decrease drop rates for needed cards during events?
3. Are drop rates dependent on the vehicles in a player's garage?
4. Does the game withhold cards for recently upgraded vehicles?
Find the answers on the study page!
Festival Coin Pack not fair [Edit]
Sep 22, 2019 – Guy Bukzi Montag ASPHALT 8 STATISTICS
Players who are planning with expected amounts of Festival Coins granted by the Festival Coin Pack should be aware that the box is not fair. The expected value of a fair box would be 7 Coins per box, but the real outcome is much less. See the box page for details.
New Update for Asphalt 8 released [Edit]
Sep 18, 2019 – Guy Bukzi Montag ASPHALT 8
The Sixth Anniversary Update (previously announced as 2019 Autumn Update on this site) has been released today for Android and iOS. As usual, the update may take some time to be available for all users. According to Gameloft Community Managers, the Windows version will come a bit later.
Recommended: Enhanced Split Box [Edit]
Sep 14, 2019 – Guy Bukzi Montag ASPHALT 8 STATISTICS
The Enhanced Split Box which is currently being offered has a good price (A8 tokens full 25 per card), fixed drop rates, clear rules and good content: Parts of the granted cards come in pairs, so it is a good opportunity to even get two desired cards at once. Besides, it is one of the very few boxes that still grant bike-specific cards after the 2019 Spring Update. See the box article for details.
Asphalt 8 fonts now available on Asphalt Wiki [Edit]
