My first and biggest conclusion after playing The Wild Run extension, is that the new specs and competitions add a lot of fun to The Crew.Ports
If following the steps above to update and configure your firewall does not resolve the issue, it will be necessary to forward ports. You will need to forward these ports to your computer’s IP address for the best possible connection:
The Crew Multiplayer ports
UDP: 3000, 3001, 3002, 3003 Incoming / Outgoing
TCP: 80, 443, 13000, 14000, 14008
The second is the the Bikes are way too overpowered and are now ruining the game from the inside out. Skills, Races are all done. My WR's are squashed by bikes. From 8800 to 10800 on a slalom skill, like it is nothing. Only proofs the bikes are way overpowered, especially in corners.
Most annoying is that this was part of the feedback, sent to Ivory Tower, but they decided to ignore it and do nothing about it. Deliberately creating controversy again.
Good part is that the bikes drive very good and the cockpit view is awesome. Even the momentum shift of the driver is good, like a real good Motor driver would do. No surprises there as the head physics guy Tixier, is a fanatic Motor guy himself.
The amount of bike related events are a bit overkill. Of course they want to promote their new toys, but if they continue like this it will become boring quickly. A bit more balance in the events would be nice.
Not giving bikes their own classes and dedicated skills, is a big mistake and a missed opportunity IMO.
Other points of improvement are the sounds. But there has to be a way to increase the engine volume of your own car/bike, as you can not hear it, when near others.
