MotoGP 20 released a few days ago and is undoubtedly one of the best chapters in the Milestone series. Also, because they have cancelled the real life season that should have taken place in this period, the title will now certainly attract many new players. If MotoGP 20 is the first chapter of the series you try, take note that at the beginning it may seem really difficult and frustrating.
Unfortunately, the game does not present any real tutorial for novice players, but with some advice, all accidents and falls will soon turn into perfect overtaking and braking. In this guide you will see the best MotoGP 20 tips and tricks to help you improve those driving skills.
START FROM THE BOTTOM
The first and most important MotoGP 20 tip I can give you to approach the game is to start from the bottom. If you immediately decide to jump into a main MotoGP competition by impersonating Valentino Rossi and deactivating all the driving aids, you will probably end up crashing within a few seconds. Therefore, I recommend starting with the lowest of the low: Moto3.
Moto3 is where the bikes are much slower and by far more manageable. It is also essential at the beginning to activate all the given driving aids, which will make the driving easier and will help you in understanding the basic mechanics behind the game. By improving you can then comfortably deactivate all the aids progressively, always keeping both the level of challenge and the fun high.
COMMUNICATION IS THE KEY TO SUCCESS
Another very important MotoGP 20 tip I can give for novice players is to make use of the Track Engineer. Through the engineer you will be able to greatly simplify the fundamental process of preparing the bike for each race. By talking to the engineer you can directly select from a menu which aspect of the driving experience does not entirely satisfy you, and he will automatically make all the necessary changes.
When you are taking part in career mode, then you must first try the various adjustments in free practice, until you find the definitive set-up you can use in the race. It is always important to experiment with fuel management in free practice to see if you need more than the recommended or if you can race with less fuel. If the fuel consumption seems too high, make sure to adjust the power mapping by setting it to ECO.
GET TO KNOW EACH TRACK
Once the driving aid of the ideal route has been deactivated, knowing the tracks thoroughly is a fundamental part in MotoGP 20. The key to increasing your game speed is in fact always knowing where to accelerate and where to brake. Let’s say the goal is to always be mentally “a curve ahead”.
Obviously the only way how you can improve in this last point is to play the game constantly, and in particular before the races try to do as many laps on the track as possible with the various free practices and qualification races available. In summary, therefore, the important thing is to start slowly, use the driving aids, and increase speed and difficulty only over time and with patience.
