    DiRTy Gossip about WRC 8 and WRC 9

    Yea the handling, particularly under braking looks awful at the moment. Looks great for what it is, and I'll still be buying it as a control pad game, but Dirt rally 2.0 it is not.

    Yea the English flag (St George's cross) has kind of been hijacked by far right groups. The Union flag (British flag) is a more politically correct flag nowadays, however I'm not overly patriotic so I don't really fly flags anyway! Apart from maybe the e.u flag from time to time, given current climate.

    No we have winter tyres, these are not studded as far as I can tell. More of an unstudded snow tyre than an ice tyre. I agree I'd like a studded winter option for Monte to cope with particularly icy sections but it's definitely fun. Though I don't have even a half decent pace on Monte yet.

    Didn't want to go full pedant. I've bitten all my fingernails off through temptation though.

    Sort of. Northern Ireland, Scotland , Wales and England fall under the Flag and governance of Great Britain, the symbol of which is the Union Flag. (Northern Ireland technically isn't part of Great Britain)

    I don't see dr2 as a lighter package, rather a more focussed package doubled down on detail with things like stage deg. I was as disappointed as the next person when we found out that we were only getting 6 locations and 2 stages per at release, but its the first game with live service, and needs to be treated that way, assisting devs to fix and adjust the things we want, not just ranting and whining and hurling abuse around.

    There's barely a topic of people enjoying the game, because people are enjoying the game. Gots to get a move on with DLC though. Kind of gutted they've split the location releases. I'd love all three in one drop but hey ho.

    Game breaking? Occasional racenet issues aren't Game breaking. Basic functionality? Like what? Being able to pick a car and race it? That's already in.

    Too little, too late? It's less than a month after release. We have 6 months of live service, so I'm sure all creases will be ironed out.

    Yea abuse seems to be going up in this forum. Someone needs to pick up the ban hammer soon. Getting silly.

    DiRTy Gossip about DIRT Rally Games

    I think the camera thing is fine, I kind of get what your saying, but it's a bumpy road...like, one of the big complaints (pre release) was that the roads shouldn't be smooth etc. Here we are with bumpy roads and you don't like it. I guess what youre after is some sort of driver head mode, where the head tilts and moves like a sort of gyroscope to adjust for attitude changes? Maybe that's possible, but I find that with some suspension tweaks it feels alright, also it makes Argentina that bit more scary and challenging, which is A Ok to me.

    Yea well I had issues with my g29 on dr1 and d4, now I have a t300 and I'm pretty happy (not completely happy) with the ffb in DR2

    Patch Notes

    DiRTy Gossip about DIRT Rally Games

    There is ffb, the SAT and wheel friction allow me to drive in a much more authentic manner. The missing things are artificial sensations that would normally be received through your seat in a real car. I imagine the ffb is as designed, however I wouldn't mind a bit of tyre slip and some road noise. To say there's no FFB is ridiculous, unless your wheel is faulty.

    The notes will be released alongside the patch in the form of a blog post, might be at 11am, shortly before, or shortly after. We know the patch goes live (if everything is on target) in 1hr and 10 minutes.

    DiRTy Gossip about DIRT Rally Games

    I was expecting ffb might take longer, though I'm personally having no issues driving the cars on my wheel, it's just lacking some immersion details such as tyre slip and surface detail. On the other things, I'm hoping the weather/day night cycle is fixed along with running order and ai discrepancies. Cheers for the heads up @ChristinaMc

    They wouldn't release new rallies without consistency of co driver. Phil Mills will be there, if not, I fear a huge amount of burning sticks and pitchforks heading toward southam.

    They've named it Monte Carlo in marketing material though, surprised if it's called France in game.

    DiRTy Gossip about DIRT Rally Games

    For me, the two games aren't competing against each other. I have Dirt for an authentic simulation of amazing cars on gravel. And will have wrc 8 to get lost in the 2019 wrc championship on a game pad (if the wheel handling is as woeful as wrc 7 was)

    DiRTy Gossip about DIRT Rally Games

    Hopefully they patch running order. ideally I'd like to set the running order formula myself for custom champs, so as to better replicate real life. At the moment the intention is that the championship leader runs first on the road on day one, then the entire top 30 is reversed for subsequent days. In actual fact at the moment this isn't working. Right now the top 30 is reversed from day 1 onwards, so the championship leader is running 30th on the road on day 1. I'm assuming this will get patched as it's a simple fix, but I'd hope to be able to just flip the top 10 on subsequent days of a rally. To have such a dynamic tool in the game is great, but is partially wasted by us not having control over it's implementation.

    I'm on PS4, and a deluxe owner, and they are are not currently available. Guess it's a steam thing in a certain region maybe.

    If Burns' 206 comes to Dirt Rally 2.0, or any 206, I'll weep tears of the purest joy. Cheeky little belters would make me a happy bunny.

    DiRTy Gossip about DIRT Rally Games

    Yep, I second what @RodgerDavies says. Christina doesn't wake up in the morning and say "how can p*** off community members today, I could give this info, but I'm choosing not to because I live in a hollowed out volcano, laughing in an evil way, whilst slowly stroking a cat" (Volcano bit may be true) There are sign offs, and permissions that have to be granted before info can be given due to legal restrictions etc. Christina has been candid where possible (I believe). Its frankly obsurd to lay blame at an individual's door, and it's possible that the final decision to make DLC offline only was only taken very recently, but maybe we will get clarification soon, we usually do.

    DiRTy Gossip about DIRT Rally Games

    To be honest the career mode had lost my attention anyway due to the weather, and day/night cycle. That said, not having DLC locations available in career mode seems like a ham fisted way of implementing DLC. 6 location championships just aren't overly fun, given that if you have one retirement, it's pretty much season over. 9-12 events will give a proper championship feel, and to not have that content supported across all game modes seems daft, unless I'm missing something. It renders one of the most developed portions of the game almost immediately void once the new locations drop.
