    DiRTy Gossip about DIRT Rally Games

    I love statistics. Would really like to know, how much of that goes on my account 😄 Trueachievements.com still says I did the most stages and kms driven on xbox so far. I'm not so much surprised about the choosen cars, but I used the Fulvia waaaaaaaay more than the Cooper, because of the sound. And design. My most driven cars are probably: 1. Ford Fiesta R5 2. Lancia Fulvia HF 3. SUBARU Impreza (2001) 4. SUBARU Impreza 1995 5. Ford Fiesta R2 Not my most favourite ones, but probably class favourites. While I love Group B 4WD and RWD (every RWD class), I don't drive them so often, because I need to be full conentrated when using them. New Zealand is my most driven rally probably too and my 2nd most favourite location. Scotland is the new 1st!
  2. @PJTierney I have some additional questions: 1. Is this an offer for Eagleizer only, or could I ask that, too? 2. Does it have any effect on DR2.0 in terms of save game or is there a risk, the game could go crazy with a name change? 3. What happens with leaderboard results? Especially older ones. Have old leaderboard entries the old name, the new name or get erased? My RaceNet name "UnderclassGDfan" is my old X-Box Live Gamertag, I changed it in 2016 to "PlattfussGDfan" and I would like to "synch" them again to have the same name everywhere in the game.

    We should not wait for the Belgium's pick, because I'm sure he isn't active in this forum. Errghff...that's slightly sadistic. I somehow crash out quite often the last 1-2 weeks in other club championships, I don't know why. This could be interesting, haven't driven the Group B's in a while outside from the obvious Delta (the reason why I wanted this gentleman's agreement). If I don't forget it and if I see the end of stage 7, sure 😄

    Greece is really difficult for me. There are so many points were a small mistake let you fall down a cliff. Only sweden is even harder for me, never have a good pace there, but it is really fun to drive.

    Whoever decided to develop scotland (the complete package basically) needs to get more money. A masterpiece.

    Good clubs for beginners?

    I can only recommend clubs I'm in obviously. Clubs with hardcore damage disabled, forced cockpit camera disabled and assists enabled: Gravel Busters (is running a 9 round rally championship, currently in 3rd round in australia with Group B 4WD, doesn't switch classes within the championship, ~9 stages each rally) Ray Charles Race (is running a 12 round rally championship, currently in 7th round in scotland with H2 FWD, switches classes within the championship, also most of the time around 7 stages each rally) RaceDepartment (currently runs single rallies with ~7-8 stages each, the current one is sweden with Group A) There is also DiRT Rally Leagues, look further down on this subforum to get more information about that. There you get into a club for your level of skill. All other clubs I'm in have hardcore damage enabled, but allow non-cockpit cams and assists (most of them).

    DiRTy Gossip about DIRT Rally Games

    But why is it open at the back? All other cars I have seen have a closed roof scoop at the back. But the article is very interesting, thanks. I know what you mean, but this game doesn't look like fun to me, because it is a fun game... 😄 They could do it a little more serious in DiRT 5 like all the other disciplines, maybe it is, maybe it just looks like a combined Mario Kart/Forza Horizon 4 clone. I still haven't looked at much PR-material about DiRT 5, because the artstyle, colours and overall presentation is just screaming "DON'T BUY ME!" to me. DiRT Rally should be rally only, the "classic" rally. DiRT 5 is the main series so to say and is the best place for a combination of many disciplines, like it was since Colin McRae: DiRT. The absolute best way would be, if Codemasters would sell all the disciplines as full sized add-on packs for one main game. So you could choose between say rally, rallycross, rally raid, hillclimb, gymkhana, trophy truck and so on. And all these disciplines would have been full games for themselves content wise. I had to laugh at that point. Do you really believe that? I bet 80% of all DR2.0 buyers are mainly interested in the rally part. At least the activity says that. And no, I don't think RX is a complete waste in this game. I own all the content, but played not much, because the AI is completely broken in this game (Hell is way too easy overall and all the other tracks are way too hard on the same difficulty for example). Especially the AI times from other heats (the ones you are not taking part) are ridiculous most of the time and destroy the full game mode for me. I'm not interested in direct PvP online racing, in any racing game, because racers are generally toxic and unfair. So a good balanced AI would have been the key for me to this mode. Cars, tracks and all are great, but unfortunately there is no point to play this. Statistics say I did 6179 rally stages so far, but only 325 heats. And most of them only because of the achievements.

    DiRTy Gossip about DIRT Rally Games

    I hope not. More non-rally content means less rally content for the game. They should fill DiRT 5 with that kind of content. And before I open a new thread for just a question, I ask it here: Maybe a stupid question, but: What function has that thing on the roof of the Fiesta R5 MkII? I saw it has two big holes on the front, gets smaller to the back and is open at the back, too. First I thought it's a graphical bug that its open at the back, because I always thought its for cooling the brakes or something. But on RL pictures it's open at the back, too. I may have a completely wrong view what these things (I don't even know the name of it) actually do.
  10. Hard to say without seeing video footage. I had a similiar situation yesterday in spain with 3-4 corners were switching from left to right 2 times. I just upshifted and downshifted a split of a second later.
  11. @BarryBL I have the same issue, also on xbox one s with version 1.10.1. I checked my challenges on the weekly event tab before, seeing I have 1 out 3 qualifying sessions completed for the challenge. Did the weekly event from this week (historic grand prix) 3 trainings and the qualifying (I set a time and I'm 68th or something on the leaderboard right now). But the counter for the challenge is still 1 out of 3 completed. But the one for 20 kilometers/miles(?) in qualifying sessions got completed from 16 to 20 out 20. I didn't checked others yet, because I had not much time to play this game the last few days and will be playing next week much more. But I just want to "warn" you guys it seems to corrupt again. It seems to work fine at the beginning of a new season and then corrupt at some point. I will try other challenges next week, but guys...look into it this time, don't wanna have the drama from last season again. Thanks for reading.

    There is no point using hard tyres until you want to do like a full 12 stage rally without service area really.
  13. Just open a thread in the DR2.0 main forum I guess. But since you already have this one, we can use it. Maybe some magic happens and it will be moved to the right forum. 30 km? There is no 30 km straight in DR2.0 😄 I guess you meant 30 meters. Depends if you hit the limiter then. If not, stay in 3rd, if yes, then shift up unless you are not ultimately in front of the corner. But there are 3 rights/lefts I would go through in 4th gear depending on the car and situation. Quick repair: Only use it, if you are short on time. The part will be repaired, but (I believe) it is more likely it gets damaged more easily then and it loses "power" more quickely. But not 100% sure on that. It also can't get "standard" repaired after you quickly repaired it once. Only quickly repaired again or replaced. Standard repair: The part gets fully repaired, but costs more time then quick repair. I believe it fills up the power bar, too. Replacing the part: Don't use it within a rally unless you have enough time and (in My Team) money for it, because it is very time consuming and costs the most money. Replace quick repaired parts in the garage, if you have enough money, so it gets completely new and full function again in My Team. Quick repaired cars outside of My Team doesn't matter obviously. Just do it here, I guess? The main advice is: On asphalt rallies use always a wet tyre, if there is a wet stage until the next service area. Use only mediums, if there are more than 2 longs or 4 short stages until the next service area. Only use softs in Monaco, if there are no stages with snow (the upper sections of the long stages).

    Only in Spain and Germany are wet tyre options. Gravel: soft, medium and hard Asphalt: soft, medium, hard and wet Monaco: soft and winter Sweden: snow

    Ok, good. I choose Group B 4WD without Delta and 205. This should be fun!
