Winter is cool for a pair of days… seven straight days of it is too much. That’s the problem of server choosing it for you.
In fact it’s even contradictory, as the rest of the game is very pro-player choice.
And you know what, you don’t even win back anything important in exchange of not being able to choose seasons. What do yo win, every player playing in the same season? What does it matter, from what I’ve seen in 45 hours of play, players aren’t racing head-to-head nor doing anything together. It’s 20 players in a server, and it’s 20 players playing at their own, with the exception of the Forzathon, and it isn’t like the Forzathon matters. People that want to play with other play are using the team adventure, and they could just make change seasons for the races that are played, so everyone is in the same page.
