Asphalt 8's rubbish elite tune up, BXR Bailey Blade GT1 Enduro Double Down

I had kind of long break. So when I came back to play, Elite car was already there.
I found out from Asphalt 8 Wikia's Elite Cars Update page--it was released around April 1, 2016.

It wasn't that long then. But at least four months were passed. But Gameloft probably don't even try to fix the problem.
So many people already talked about it. But they don't listen. No, probably they don't care.

It seemed to me that waste customer's credits and tokens(and customer's time) are ordinary thing to them.



When I played with free try elite car from TLE(Time-Limited Event), this tune up things were very messy--because I didn't have any elite car before. I did 'tune up' but a few hours or days later, it was completely gone. Sometimes, it was half full. Or sometimes, played it one or two times, it already became red-stat-car.
At first, I thought I forgot to 'tune up'. But it kept happening.
And many people in the internet community said same thing.


So should I keep watching whether this 'tune up' working properly? Or even screenshots to it for the evidence??




Anyway, when I play this BXR Bailey Blade GT1 EDD (Enduro Double Down), I was worried that this 'tune up' will make problem.
And my guess was totally right.


This was my initial thought - quote from Asphalt 8: Airborne, BXR Bailey Blade GT1 Enduro Double Down First try challenge list. @ August 29, 2016
But it will be very difficult in very different way. This elite car system will degrade car so you have to tune up time to time. And this elite car system always ruined whole play time because sometimes 'tune up' just completely gone or sometimes it will refill only half of 'tune up bar'.....



And fourth tryout, it happened. I just copied whole part from Asphalt 8 4th tryout of BXR Bailey Blade GT1 Enduro Double Down challenge list @ August 31, 2016

Challenge 3. Ace race. London, recommended car rank 1548, AI finished at 1:21:048

When I tried to do this challenge 3, it was degraded car. So I did Elite car 'tune up'.

I took this screenshot at August 29, 2016 21:53 PM.
So I had to wait for almost two hours.

About four hours later, I tried to do the challenge 3. And I've got this:

That 'tuning up' progress is completely gone. I took this screenshot at August 30, 2016 1:31 AM.


See. That's why I said this at the beginning:
And this elite car system always ruined whole play time because sometimes 'tune up' just completely gone or sometimes it will refill only half of 'tune up bar'.


* Again my guess was right. I did apply the tune up. About 30 minutes later, I checked this 'tune up' thing. But four hours later, it was completely gone. So I had to apply 'tune up' again. That means I had to play next day.
Meanwhile, 2 out of 3 invitation at the time and one invitation was delivered within 2+ hours. So while doing sleep or work, my EDD invitation was fully charged for very and very long time. So I probably wasted one EDD invitation for waiting and again, waiting for complete the 'tune up'.

But after I spent one invitation, I had to only wait like 4+ hours(it suppose to 8 hours wait for the edd invitation ticket). It's like one hidden space is there so 8 hours probably okay. But if it's more than that, ticket timer will stop. So player must keep 'tune up' and use ticket carefully.



I waited around four hours to 'tune up' but it was completely gone. So I just don't like keep waiting.
So I decided to try with degraded car.
Recommended car rank is 1548. Mine was 1595 with degraded.....

It did mess up with other elite car's tune up.

It happened quite number of times and I remembered it will mess up with other elite car.
So I remembered that I played free try elite car from TLE.


So I check the car in TLE:

That was very strange because I played it about two or three times. But as you see, tune up was almost full-only one part was gone.
Was I confused with previous play?

So I did check the leaderboard because it will show the last time of play:

This is screenshot of TLE main screen:

Yes, this will prove only played it three hours and thirty minutes before.
But I remembered why I played it and how many times I played it. I was more than 5,000(or 4,500-ish) position so I played it to make that 4 random card boxes. So at least I played a few times.


After I apply the Bailey's tune up. I played this for about two or three times.
After I played this, I checked whether Bailey's tune up was progress or not.

Because this happened(mess up with other elite car) quite number of times so I checked.



So now I stopped play Cadillac ATS-V Coupe Multiplayer Cup because I had to play Bailey EDD.
I played it several times. But it became nothing because I probably can't get anything from this TLE.
