From the vehicles that are driven in the spectacular introductory sequence to the blidos that can be driven in some tests, through the many high-end cars that are obtained with the roulette throughout the game, Forza Horizon 5 always gives the player the opportunity to get behind the wheel of real engine beasts. And yet the [1945MBJeepisplaguingtheauctionhouseandgiftsystem.
As you can see at a quick glance through the subreddit dedicated to Forza Horizon, the MB Jeep 1945, also known as Willy, has become a meme in the gaming community. The reason, as reported from Windows Central, is due to a game mechanics that allows you to get super roulettes quickly, which in turn serves to amass large amounts of money and / or expensive cars.
When using a car in Forza Horizon 5 Skill points are earned that can be spent on a kind of skill tree unique to each vehicle. Those skills include improvements to drift score, boosters to the credits earned by completing a race, and the ability to immediately land a roulette wheel.
The MB Jeep 1945 does not have a roulette, but a super roulette (that is, three roulette wheels at the same time have better prizes than usual). Not only that, but you can unlock with much less skill points than with the rest of the cars. The Willy solo it costs 40,000 credits. And if the player gets rid of it, buy it again the skill tree is reset, but the skill points gained remain.
With that data, it is easy to guess what the players are doing. They buy a MB Jeep 1945, they get the super roulette, and they try to sell it at the auction house.

Developers Playground Games have not ruled on this trouble, but the general opinion on the aforementioned subreddit is that they are going to update it. In the afternoon of this Wednesday they announced a quick update at the server level to troubleshoot connection problems and spontaneous shutdowns. On the official website of known issues the MB Jeep 1945 is not mentioned either. Be that as it may, the Willy It has become a meme, and whether they change the system or not, it is something the community will remember.
