Autolog Dashboard

Why was the Autolog Dashboard of Need For Speed Hot Pursuit (2010) & Need For Speed The Run  Removed since the announcement of new NFS Title named NFS Most Wanted ?
Both of the above games featuring Autolog had their own separate Autolog Dashboard (Website) on which the stats could be tracked, seen & Compared. All of the autolog features ingame like Autolog™ Feed, browse Recommendations, comment and share pictures could be done & seen on their Individual Autolog Dashboard website and more Respectively, but since the Announce of NFS MOst Wanted, these Individual Stats tracking website have been taken down and now there is no way to compare/see them except from ingame itself, which is alot annoying.
example :-
The Link to Autolog Dashboard for NFS The Run used to be : http://www.needforspeed.com/therun/autolog/dashboard

The Link to Autolog Dashboard for NFS Hot Pursuit used to be : http://www.hotpursuit.needforspeed.com/autolog/

 

I cannot take a Photo of the website anymore to show you, because the Autolog Dashboard is In-accessable, Still, I found some Screens of the Autolog Dashboard of Both Previous NFS Titles, please copy and paste the link in your web browser to see them. 

NFS Hot Pursuit's Autolog Dashboard :

NFS The Run's Autolog Dashboard :

The above Images are of the Autolog Dashboard of NFS Titles respectively, each had their own Official Autolog Website, which could be accessed through the Official NFS Website (www.needforspeed.com) 


NFS Devs, if you are reading this, BRING BACK THE AUTOLOG DASHBOARD OF THE OLDER TITLES BACK !

Re: Autolog Dashboard

I honestly have never really seen a reason for EA to host separate website pages for Autolog when you can see the information in the game.  Access isn't any harder and it's not like the information is particularly useful outside of the game.

 

There is, however, an API for third party website administrators to track Autolog data but that might just be for World.

dude you've got to be kidding me, It is obvious you are not an NFS Franchise fan, OR PROBABLY HAVENT PLAYED THESE NFS TITLES YET, because this Problem is SEVERE, and only TRUE NFS Fans know how much difficult and annoying it is without Autolog Dashboard/Website service. Go take a look at the NFS Section in EA Forums, it is full of people complaining about this thing, I mean Complaining about shutting down the Autolog Dashboard Access..... Well, just say its like Battlefield 3 without BATTLELOG.

Re: Autolog Dashboard

I did offer a solution.  The only one that's going to suffice if EA has shut down the websites.  Sure I gave my opinion too but that's no reason to act the way you have.  To reiterate.  You can find an API that will allow you to access Autolog for third party websites.  Contact Jussi, his new nick is ircjussi I believe, who has access to the API.

 

As for being a fan or playing the games.  I've played every game from Underground 2 to now thoroughly except for Hot Pursuit (which I didn't care for via the demo).  I've played several of the games released before Underground 2 as well.  I'm well versed in the games which is why I'm here or so I was led to understand by way of the invitation I got.  I'm sorry if a differing opinion classifies me as not being a "fan" in your eyes but I don't see how that's my problem.

Whats Jussi, I mean ircjussi ? How Do I contact him ? Who is he a moderator ? Or a NFS Developer ?


Also, You've seem to play for a day or two, not more, and surely as I said, you're not a Addicted Racing gamer, who only plays NFS Titles all day, hence for you, it does not matter, but for me and other it does.
Also to let you know some of the Autolog Dashboard Features which were available on website are not available ingame, example Woldwide Leaderboard, timings, ranking, and much more, etc...
So we want the AUTOLOG DASHBOARD BACK.......

Re: Autolog Dashboard

Jussi is a who.  His nick is ircjussi.  He was one of the EA forum NFS moderators alongside EATorque and Sarcross.

 

Otherwise lose the superiority complex.  It's really grating.  I've played each NFS game that I listed thoroughly.  I don't know what thoroughly means in your world but in the english speaking world it means in depth.  Each game since Underground 2, except for Hot Pursuit, was played actively several times a week for several hours a sitting for several months and each one has also been beaten several times.  I'm still playing Shift 2 since I purchased it which was about a week after it was released.  In fact, I've played it for about twelve hours this week so far.  As for specifically only playing NFS games.  Sure I play other games but most of the time it's NFS games.  In fact of all the racing games out there I've only owned GT5Prologue.  All other racing games were NFS games.

 

Why you're so concerned with defining people who don't agree with you step by step as being inferior I don't know why but it's almost as insulting as forcing me to qualify my experience via assumption.  It's something you should stop.

 

I'm not going to bother qualifying why I should belong in this community any longer.  You're not the gate-keeper here.
