  1. Hey Racers! This is what Asphalt 8 Says!

    In 2018 we continued our efforts to bring more exciting content to Asphalt 8 by adding new vehicles, a new track, and challenging events. We also celebrated the 5th anniversary of Asphalt 8! 

    Now we’ve got some big news for you as a lot of great things are on the horizon for Asphalt 8 in 2019. In addition to our usual content and feature updates, we will be making various balance improvements to keep the game fresh, exciting, and competitive for all players. 

    So keep on reading to get the scoop on what’s coming to Asphalt 8 in the next update!

    Car Rank Adjustments – Solving a Substantial Matchmaking Issue

    One of the biggest issues with the current MP system is that it creates imbalance in the game by boosting certain cars to dominance. With a specific upgrade scheme, these cars can reach fantastic top speeds while maintaining a relatively low Rank. That makes them difficult to beat with most other cars of similar Rank. 

    In order to eliminate this issue, we have decided to adjust the Rank of certain cars. But only the Rank itself! No other car stats (Top speed, Acceleration, Handling, Nitro) will be affected by this change. 

    With this change we hope to get even closer to a MP experience where the winners are determined purely by driving skills and game knowledge.

    In Summary: 

    • Only some cars will be adjusted. That includes all vehicles from Class A, a few cars from Class B and Class C, and the Special Edition car that will be introduced during the Chinese New Year celebration. Below you can find the full list of affected vehicles.
    • Only Rank will be affected – no other car characteristics or stats. 

    We will constantly monitor the chosen cars to decide if more adjustments are needed to ensure that we meet our goals. We’re happy to hear your feedback, so feel free to share your thoughts and suggestions!

    Rebalanced Pro Kit Upgrades, Car Mastery Rewards & Car Collection Rewards  

    Our other priority is to eliminate any imbalances in the game economy that were inevitable after 5 years of game evolution. To achieve this goal, we will adjust:
    1) The upgrade requirements for most cars
    2) The values of Pro Kit Cards
    3) The rewards from Car Mastery and Car Collections

    IMPORTANT: If currently you are counting on some specific rewards from Masteries or Car Collections you should claim them prior to the update 31! (It will be released by the end of the third week of February. The current hotfix is here to introduce the Lunar New Year RnD) .

    With these changes, we believe in-game resource distribution will be more in line with their rarity types. This makes different in-game activities equally interesting to players as they consider the potential rewards each one provides

    On the Horizon

    Our overall intention for 2019 is to have fairer competition, better matchmaking, and more freedom of choice when choosing a car for competition. We are also working on an exciting new track and game modes, so stay tuned for more news!

    See you on the Asphalt!
