Sooo, was beginning to do the Weekly Event on D4 yesterday and got 1 stage done (R5 at Spain). My girlfriend comes in and plugs in the A/C unit, and the power cuts out (unknowingly overloaded the power strip). So, I get everything going again and go to start the event again and I'm automatically counted as a DNF because I LOST POWER??? I understand we can't have someone just rage quit and then come back or something, but I don't find it fair to be completely out of luck with something over a loss of power. I would've taken a time penalty or loss of credits, but to be counted completely out? Come on.
Also, based on some other things I've seen here, the minor gripes I have with this game seem to be common. RX for me on this game is a pretty big frustration. The co-driver is basically useless, he's not said anything to me while I'm racing that would help. I could turn the audio down and tune him out, but seems a little unnecessary. Also, the change in car handling between practice and race is pretty drastic in my opinion. I'll think the car handles fine in practice and then in the race, it's all I can do to try to hang on to it. I don't know if it's just me not being cautious in the race, going for the win, but I don't THINK I'm driving any differently. The car handling, in my opinion, seems a little less predictable than it did on Dirt Rally. On Dirt Rally, I knew where I'd struggle. This one is really hit or miss.
