    The Giant Bomb Car Club

    Plenty of us on Giant Bomb are extremely fast, talented folk. Some of you are incredible tuners, others amazing painters, and I sincerely believe there's a few fairly fast drivers, as well. With the car club functionality, we should gather our forces together and make our mark known in the Forza Motorsport universe. Right? Right.

    Our car club is called Giant Bomb, appropriately enough. Joining our club will put [GB] before your gamertag when racing in Forza 4. You'll also help our leaderboard ranks against other clubs, have access to club cars, and receive far too many game invites for Forza Race Night every Thursday.

    Pretty awesome, no?

    How To Join

    THE CLUB IS CLOSED, AS WE MOVE ONTO A NEW VERSION OF FORZA MOTORSPORT. Sorry!

    Inactive Members

    Any members who haven't been active in 30 days may be removed from the club to make room for other users.

    I'll usually check every leaderboard and anywhere else I could potentially monitor activity before booting somebody. This process may be biased by the leaderboard performance of users, with us looking the other way for faster people a little longer. Building up your driver level is also a great way to ensure you stay in the club longer.

    Please note: If you've been removed from the Giant Bomb car club, don't assume you've done anything wrong. Being inactive happens, and it's nothing personal if we boot you to make space for someone who really wants in. Trust me, if you did something bad, I'd make sure you knew.

    If you find yourself on the outside looking to rejoin, feel free to ask to be let back in, and we'll gladly work on getting you a new invite.

    Note: Giant Bomb staff will not be subject to this rule, as this club would not be possible without them.

    Car Sharing

    Perhaps the coolest part of being in a car club is our ability to share cars with each other! That said, please consider the following guidelines for sharing cars:

    • If you're just looking to share a car for the achievement or badges, that's cool. However, if you're sharing an unremarkable car for said achievement, please consider unsharing it right afterwards so as to limit the clutter in our garage.
    • Don't just share every car you win or earn. Cars automatically tuned by Forza (the ones you earn when leveling up) are generally shit, and you'll only irritate people by sharing them without doing anything fancy to improve their look or performance.
    • Don't share stock cars. You can already use stock versions of all non-unicorn cars in any modes where the club garage is relevant. DLC cars can't be used by people who don't own the DLC this way, so you're not tricking Turn 10 with this method. Stock unicorn cars are silly, too. At least upgrade it to the peak of a PI class. C'mon.
    • Only the owner of a shared car can muck with it, so don't worry about any shared garage vandalism. However, if you want to make changes to a shared car's setup, give it an awesome paint job, or otherwise try and improve someone else's car, consider asking the owner for permission to borrow it via gifting. Be polite! If I hear someone's abusing this to steal or sabotage cars that don't honestly belong to them, they won't last long in the club.

    If you fall astray of any of this on a regular basis, I may fire a message off in your general direction. Willfully sabotaging the club garage in order to make it completely unusable by others is grounds for permanent ejection from the club.

    Terms for Unsharing

    Eventually, we may hit club garage capacity, which means a few cars would have to be unshared. I also want to keep the garage somewhat neat, so I'll look through periodically for cars to unshare. I don't want any of you angry with me saying, "PsEG YOU BULLY YOU UNSHARED MY CARS AND I HATE YOU I'M LEAVING," so realize this is only ever done to keep our garage relevant and open for really cool cars in the future.

    If we hit our garage capacity, I'll use the following criteria to determine if a car should be removed, roughly in this order:

    • Are there any duplicate make/models of this car in the garage?
    • Is this car upgraded to a PI that would make it competitive in its class?
    • Does the car have a really freakin' awesome design/paint job/appearance?
    • ...is this car upgraded at all? Not necessarily counting the prize car auto upgrades, since as stated before, those are shit.
    • Is the car rare to the point where a normal club member would have a very hard time gaining access to it otherwise?
    • Is the club using the car at all?

    Don't fret about this whole unsharing process too much. No one's getting in trouble over our shared garage unless some jerk refuses to stop sharing some utterly worthless car for reasons beyond human comprehension.

    Your Mission

    There are three tasks you can undertake if you wish to help improve our club:

    Mission 1: Enter monthly Rivals competitions for a chance at unicorn cars.

    Every month so far, Turn 10 has at least one event in Rivals mode in which they give away 100 BMW M3-GTRs a week to random participants. If you get one of these, you can tune it and share it with the club, and Falcon can finally stop whining about how Forza 4 is ruined because it's missing his favorite car. Same goes for any of the rarer unicorns.

    Mission 2: Improve our club ranking on the leaderboards.

    I've added a tab on our Google Docs spreadsheet of our club's rankings on the various leaderboards. If you want to help improve our standing, perhaps you could set some fast times in less competitive areas! Remember, only the fastest time in the club rolls through from each individual leaderboard.

    Mission 3: Just be active and awesome.

    Frankly, if you just enjoy yourself, drive what you like, and focus on driving as clean as possible, you'll probably accomplish mission 2 without even trying.

    Can't wait for the car club. It'll be nice having some regular people to race with again. It'll also be very interesting to see what kind of tunes, paint jobs, etc. some of us come up with. I'm not much of a tuner or painter (I just prefer to race), but I'm open to everything and will definitely give everything a shot.

    There wasn't car clubs in Forza 3. There was however the race nights, but the two are completely different things.

    The club has been created! It's called Giant Bomb, which will put [GB] in front of your name in-game.

    The default setting has it so players can apparently request invites in-game. I'm not quite sure how that works yet, but please feel free to try your hand at being proactive and request to join if you wish. Also let me know if there's any issue in finding the club if you use that method.

    I'll start sending out and accepting invites tonight (those of you who already contacted me are cool, no worries). It's time for us to disturb the Forza universe.

    @PsEG: Regarding requesting to join, when you click on the Car Club option in the Community menu, it automatically shows anyone on your friend list who's in a car club. As long as people have PsEG as a friend on XBL they should automatically see the GB car club, and can easily request to join.

    @matt_wickstrom: People on my friends list are already pretty easy for me to invite, since they'll show up in my list of potential invitees when they start up a profile in Forza 4. Not as worried about those folk -- the only ones on my friends list that I haven't invited are guys that I'm not sure would want in the car club.

    That aside, going to stress the importance of sending a message or something along if you request to join and I'm not familiar with you. dannyBwheeler and dukefan1210 both have sent requests and their names ring a bell, but until I know with complete certainty if they're Giant Bomb folk or not through a message on Live or a forum post, I'm going to sit on their requests. I know it sounds silly, but I've seen it happen before where someone tries to join a club/group without knowing what it's about or represents. It's more common than you think, which is kind of weird.

    Thanks, everyone!

    Hey, stupid question, but can you belong to more than one car club? I want to start one with my brother as well, so if I can only join one, that'll be it. Otherwise I'll send a request to join when I get the game today or tomorrow.

    @Nat3TheGreat13: My only concern (I just realized this too) is that it might not let people without a code to download it with use it, since it's not on their hard drive. If that's the case, we can always work something out where someone who wants the car can transfer me in game credits and I'll buy it and gift it to them.

    I'm not playing Forza right now, but if I recall correctly, the Alfa Romero cost 36,000 credits.

    @matt_wickstrom: I don't think that will be an issue. People will have the car data on their disc/system if not they wouldn't be able to see it in game and would be presented with a "generic" car when racing against someone with the pre-order car.

    I'll handle all the pending invites and requests accounted for in 2.5 hours or so, once I'm out of class.

    Also, for the record, it turns out I can fire off invites without having people on my friends list. I'll edit the first post to reflect this later, as well.

    It seems you can only join one car club at a time... lame.

    I already created one for a few friends of mine who are playing.

    Oh well, still up for the race night.

    As soon as I get the game I'll set everything up to join this (I wanted to get it today but to much stuff is due tomorrow and Thursday. I'll just get the game on Friday and marathon it like usual). I'll be the guy repping a 1995 Eclipse GSX painted like The Fast and the Furious who screams "NOOOOOSSS" or other quotes every time I hit a straightaway. I can't wait to play Forza again.

    All right, everyone. A few quick notes while they're on my mind. I'll fold some of this into the first post soon enough.

    Co-Leaders YAAAY

    I've appointed a few co-leaders who I believe played crucial roles in keeping Race Night alive and successful. Were it not for them, we...well, there'd be a car club, but not a weekly racing thing. I dunno.

    Anyways, Pakx (PAX MORTE), Keval N, and Jugnutts are your co-leaders for the club. Once I figure out what the heck that lets them do, I'll determine if we need any more co-leaders.

    That's a lot of shared cars!

    Seriously, it's awesome to see that feature get used so quickly, and I can tell you all seem to love it.

    I want to bring this up now, though, because it's likely we'll eventually fill up our shared garage, and I don't want any of you angry with me saying, "PsEG YOU BULLY YOU UNSHARED MY CARS AND I HATE YOU I'M LEAVING."

    If we hit our garage capacity, I'll use the following criteria to determine if a car should be removed, roughly in this order:

    • Are there any duplicate make/models of this car?
    • Is this car upgraded to a PI that would make it competitive in its class?
    • ...is this car upgraded at all?
    • Is the car rare to the point where a normal club member would have a very hard time gaining access to it otherwise?
    • Does the car have a really freakin' awesome design/paint job/appearance?

    Don't fret about this too much. No one's getting in trouble unless some jerk refuses to stop sharing some utterly worthless car for reasons beyond human comprehension.

    Who the heck are all these people?

    For those of you that posted in here or sent me an Xbox Live message with a Giant Bomb meme, thank you so much. Not only did you prove you belong in the club, but a few of you amused me as well! That's a bonus of the rule, not its intended purpose. I think I've gotten everyone who either sent me a message on Live or posted here.

    Still, there's a few people that sent requests to join through Forza, and I'm seeing no proof that they're actually a part of this community! That won't do. That won't do at all.

    If you have one of the following gamertags:

    • OO7MasterChief
    • XBOX IS COOL 30
    • dukefan1210
    • EdNix
    • ChaosKiller2000
    • Murtaug
    • SoloProductions
    • CMoody01

    Then your name might ring a bell to me, but I don't have any proof you're part of the Giant Bomb community! If you could post in here or send me a message over Live with some proof (meme/user name) that you like the Internet, then we can hang out in the club. Otherwise, as stated earlier, I'm sitting on these.

    One Final Thing!

    Looking at our club size, if all of you are looking to get into the main Race Night lobby on Thursday...it might be full at times? I can't believe this, but I'm getting a lot of interested messages. Don't let this deter you, though. If you want to be a part of Race Night, then you should try to join us. Period.

    I honestly can't imagine that's true, but if we get a full 16 players...man, expect me to lose my shit like some crazed fanboy. You've all been warned.
