    DRC | DiRT Rally Championship | The Forum's Club

    Terminal damage in SS1. Was on the absolute limit of my pace and pretty much on par with @Janneman60 throughout the stage. Lost control on a (more or less) long straight with a jump. Came on the grass on the left and crashed in 5th gear against a stone, done. I see that as a sign and thinking of not to compete further in that championship. Well see, pretty hard disappointed right now. The weather here in germany is absolutely bad for playing games at the moment.

    Australia will be really interesting, probably the first time I really think of using medium tyres. Anyone already decided what car he uses? I think, I will use the Kadett. Not 100% sure yet, I really like all 4 of them, but...I dunno...arrgh! ๐Ÿ˜„

    DRC | DiRT Rally Championship | The Forum's Club

    Wow. I won, wohooo ๐Ÿ˜€ That was really close, I mean REALLY close! Monte Carlo was pretty good, had only one almost terminal crash in SS3, but a tree and a car saved me ๐Ÿ˜„ Sweden was a small disaster, because I did several mistakes in SS2, SS3 and especially in SS4, but I was also way too slow at all times. I was a bit shocked about your dominant performance here, @Dytut! Denim saved my championship, because something must have happend in SS7, because he was also faster than me throughout the rally. So, for the next championship: I don't wanna choose R5, H3 RWD, Group A and 2000cc, because these were the last four classes we had. And I don't like FWD classes that much, so these classes are not an option for me. So I think it's time for some RWD-Action again! The winner is: H2 RWD!

    Please help me get to the right game

    DiRT Rally and DiRT Rally 2.0 are more serious Rally-Simulations. DiRT 4 is a bit easier and more arcade. Colin McRae: DiRT 2 and DiRT 3 are both very arcade, but also quite far away from rally for the most part. And also quite old already (released 2009 and 2011 respectively). DiRT 5 (release will be in october) is not really a rally game it seems. More a circuit arcade racer on dirt. If you want a good rally experience, but more arcade = try DiRT 4 If you want the best rally experience = try DiRT Rally 2.0 and put on all assists you can find

    Nasty hard Ice snow rain storm.

    It's a PS4-exclusive issue that seems to happen sometimes. I play on X-Box One S since launch of the game and didn't had this issue even once. And I played A LOT. Would be surprised if they finally find a fix for that.

    Wheels Vs Controllers

    The club-website needs several updates including this. But I doubt it happens for this game. Make suggestions for the next game in the subforum, more you really can't do, I guess.

    Reset a players time

    Sorry guys, every run on clubs are one-shots. There is no way of getting another try. The only thing, that comes into my mind: Kicking the member out of the club and let him re-join. BUT that would erase everything done before. There is a small trophy-system under "members" on the club-website, wich would be deleted for that member and all progress in the current championship.

    Reset Progress

    Well, I used the first option "reset progress" once only. And this option does nothing to My Team. It deletes: -Saved Custom Championships -Any progress on Historic Championship -Progress on FIA World Rallycross Championship -Colin McRae Scenarios progress -Saved Tuning Setups -Current My Team Rally Career Championship -Current My Team Rallycross Career Championship I ASSUME that "reset all" deletes additionally: -any adjustment in settings I ASSUME that "Reset RaceNet Data" deletes: -all cars in garage -all credits -all car stats -all progress in Crew updates I wouldn't recommend resetting your RaceNet-Data, because I really, really, really doubt, you get resetted to 2.5 million credits + the cars. You will have just nothing. 0. Nada. And most of the DLC cars you get only once with 0 car stats. The older cars you only get "used" in the car shop with stats already attached. But in any case you will have of course the DLC cars available in the in-game car shop. I just think the 2.5 million credits are a one time-gift bonus.

    Top 5 favourite cars to drive

    1. Lancia 037 Evo 2 2. Lancia Delta S4 3. Audi Sport quattro (S1) E2 4. SUBARU Impreza 1995 5. Ford Fiesta R5 This is really hard. I like most cars to drive in this game, just very few exceptions. And wich I like most changes quite often. At the moment I prefer RWD cars over everything else, even started a club only for RWDs: https://dirtrally2.com/clubs/club/335415

    I was one of the loudest, when RaceNet was failing pretty much every weekend and on sales and new releases. But since more than a month there wasn't a single problem with RaceNet for me. At least 6 weeks now, longest time in a row since release of the game. Yes, depends on how fast you were and how far off the track when resetting on track. Got a minute time penalty in finland a while ago. Were you've been in USA? ๐Ÿ˜ฅ Now my usual summary ๐Ÿ˜„ Finland: Did several test runs before to get better feel for the car on that track. On SS1 I was very cautious, but also quite slow. Same on SS2: I was more than 8 seconds down after the long straight with those huge jumps and tried to push a bit more to not fall far behind. But I crashed and got a puncture... SS3 was just driving slowly on 3 wheels. Still crashed a few times. Car was completely broken at the service area, could only repair engine and radiator and still got a time penalty for that. SS4-SS7: Car was slow and had basically no turbo. Some crashes still happend. Scotland: Did some test runs before, but was unreliable like Finland. SS1 was ok, but cautious. Barely could follow @Dytut's pace. SS2 and SS3 were pretty god and fast. Was on a run now. SS4: Hit a tree stomp on the left in the 4th(?) corner, got punched to the right into the ditch and crashed against a log. I could brake a bit, so the impact wasn't that big, but still puncture on the front right. Drove on 3 wheels until the finish in SS6. Was quite good, no crashes, spins or whatever. Car was also ok, except the missing tyre, lol. SS7 was quite good, could fully repair the car and was quite fast. I was sure by now the championship was gone, because I was 3 minutes down, what would have been possible for me here. USA: WHAT A RALLY! ๐Ÿ˜„ That was a really close battle all the way between me, @Dunoon and @denim398! Unfortunately Dunoon seemed to have crashed in SS5. I crashed there too midway through. Even with a roll, but only cost a few seconds and no real damage. I was slightly too fast and touched the outside hill and rolled slowly and back on the wheels ๐Ÿ˜„ Right after the finish on SS7 I thought I lost to denim398, only realising seconds later that I lost the time to Dunoon and gained on denim398. Wohoo! 2nd rally win this championship and now leading!

    Sold DLC car, cant get it back?!

    It will come back at the car shop, wait for the reset. Not all cars in the shop will be available at the same time, thats why the shop has a counter running down.

    The Solberg World Cup

    I used softs, but I couldn't see if that would have worked, because I drove 80% of the 4 stages on 3 wheels ๐Ÿ˜„ In our championship we drive 3 longs before service area at every rally and I always use softs and it works quite well. Only Australia gets tricky at the end. I think the time you lose on the 4th stage you make more than good on the first 3. But driving gets tricky at the end, so nothing for beginners ๐Ÿ˜„

    Big jump in difficulty between Clubman and Pro

    Errm, no. You still seem to not understand that as long this is a game, that there will always people, who drive like crazy to get to the limits. There's not a single game out there, wich has at least a decent playerbase, were this is not possible. But I understand that you are up for the real rally thing, like driving careful enough to not crash, but still fast = authentic. Still possible with the mechanics in-game and still winning. I am the best example: not the fastest, but fast enough. And my driving style is probably more like yours, then those guys, who drive like crazy. I see that differently, but get your point. Restriction is sometimes a motivation. If you can decide the difficulty like you can in custom championships, what's the point of the career mode at all? It's basically the only difference and motivation: get up the tiers! Strange. On the one side you don't want a challenge, but this then is too easy for you? 1 minute penalties for 1 mistake on a track were you left the road? This would ruin rallies in career very frequently and would be much more frustrating than a too high difficulty. And: You CAN get a 1 minute penalty for leaving the track. It depends how fast you left the track and how far away you are from it, when you get resetted. I often get 10, 12, sometimes even 20 seconds. One time in Finland I got a minute because I overshoot a square left basically without braking at all. But yes, the auto-reset is annoying. Should be much more far away from track than it is like now. But then they need time-penalties "on the fly" for cutting corners without resetting the car. Or more objects on possible cuts to prevent it. Do you read what I wrote? Or do you only read what suits to your argument? I already said what they could do to make it easier for slower drivers. There is really no need for an even easier tier than open, it is just not very well balanced on some locations in specific classes, there's no doubt about that. It's already 5 tiers. How many different tiers are enough? I don't want to drive through 5 tiers to get to a decent challenge. BUT, I could deal with that, if it would be say 10. But only if the game recognises my speed after the first championship and puts me automatically in a tier that suits my speed after the first championship. And then continues on the classic way how it is now. But to be honest, I hope they complete re-think career mode anyway. I want it offline. I want a deeper career with sponsors, team-contracts and so on. One of my favourite racing games from my childhood was "World Driver Championship" on the N64. You had to sign to a team and fullfill there expectations, wich got harder and harder over time as you move up to better teams fighting for the championship at the end. And if you were on the top of the championship you got promoted into the better and faster league with new teams, cars and harder tracks. And started youre career at a new team from behind again. THIS, CODEMASTERS, IS A CAREER MODE!

    The Solberg World Cup

    I dropped from 117th place after SS8 to 257th place at the end due to a puncture on SS9 on the left front ๐Ÿ˜ž Never run with a spare, it's all or nothing for me ๐Ÿ˜„ Terrible 734th place at the end. This championship didn't worked out for me, lol. Hoped for a top 200 place, but oh well...that hope got destroyed after I realised I missed the first event.

    Big jump in difficulty between Clubman and Pro

    This is absolute normal. 1a) In this game are unrealistic cuts on many stages, wich is a flaw by the developer. Hopefully they have this in mind for the next title. 1b) It is absolutely normal that game runs are much faster und risky, because...IT'S STILL A GAME GUYS! In real life they can't do the absolute physical limit, because a crash can't be fixed with a simple restart. 2. We hardcore players also need a difficulty to play with. So it doesn't get boring. Saying for us is eSports and the clubs-Feature is egoistic and unfair. I also want a challenge in career. "Open" is really easy compared to "Masters", they could put more leagues between them, but that would mean more championships to play through until I get challenged. The best option would be to put an option to choose either to stay in the league you are in or rank up, if you are in the top 3. So you don't get automatically get upvoted and downvoted all the time, if the next league is too hard. We have nearly the same amount of credits (around 74.5 million credits on my account) and I simply don't get your problem. I don't mean this arrogant, but I just got better over time while playing. I simply can't give advice how to get better except of focusing on one car for a while, this helped me understand the physics better. My main problem is not speed, but being flawless through a run. And again, it is really egoistic to exclude faster drivers from game modes with CPU. I want to drive career races like you sometimes and "Masters" is nearly perfect for me. A difficult achievement killed your motivation for an entire game mode? The reason for achievements should do the exact opposite... I played even more at the time of the new Colin achievements, because I really, really wanted them. And you don't need one single cut or arcadic behaviour to get these achievements done. I refuse to use rediculous cuts in this game at all, even if they not the fastest way possible, because they are not authentic. Ah come on. Maybe it sounded arrogant, but it wasn't meant like that. It's a racing game after all. What advice do you expect here? Best way is experience and maybe to look at ghost times in time trial. And I think most people can get MUCH better, if they would change there mindset. This "complain instead of pushing yourself"-mentality nowadays is just disgusting. Though I get that some people just wanna have fun, but there are difficulties for that too in the game. But they could be optimised, yeah, see above. 1) Some cuts look unrealistic, yeah, should be adressed by the developers, but besides that? I dont' see Need for Speed-like behaviour in the game. They just drive at the absolute limit, because they don't risk there lifes while doing it. 2) Thanks to those players, we get a DiRT 5 that looks like a Forza Horizon 4-rip off. Errgh. There are enough players out there, who want a challenge...hopefully.

    Childish comment. If I had no life, I couldn't write these words. And I play 3 games at the moment on 3 different consoles, DR2.0 being my regular game playing it nearly everyday. Theres not much else to do for me in the current time. Not always. If the next leg is only on stages with asphalt and no ice/snow, then softs are much better. That includes 4 out of the 12 stages, but can't remember the stage names right now. And yes, the AI is terrible balanced in that game, Rally and RX. Especially H2 FWD and R2 if I remember correctly and yeah, Poland being one of the worst stages regarding this. But there is still a lot of room for improvement if you can't promote from Pro to Elite. It starts getting really frustrating from Elite onwards, because times getting close to top leaderboard positions, wich is ridiculous. A better career mode is always welcome, but the "closed" difficulties on My Team career is not a bad idea in my point of view, just could have been better designed. I need a forced challenge on me like the Colin McRae scenarios to push my skills to the limit.

    I think there are several reasons for it. A) The club-website is absolutely awful in terms of searching for a club. You can't even filter the clubs by members in it. If you could at least filter all clubs out of the list, were less than 10 members are in, you would have 90% less clubs to look through. B) The pandemic pushed the esport scene a bit it seems. So many clubs at the moment with long going events and prizes to win. So not much left for a small club like this. Players don't have the time to compete in all of them. C) Very controversial now: The cockpit-view restriction is maybe a point, that keeps players away. I am ok with it, but if we want more players, we may have to re-think that part. D) 6 long stages and 1 short one every 3 days may seem pretty much for some. But I really like that event format. E) The restriction to 1 car per season could be also a point. But I think that's pretty important and one of the best parts of that club. F) Some regular players didn't start in that season for whatever reason (maybe because of B). I have extreme problems with the S4 Rally in Finland. The jumps are just ridiculous. The car smashes on the ground on at least 3-4 jumps on Hรคmelahti and I can't control the landing properly. My rund will most probably a disaster. And because I forgot to post it until now: Argentina was a small disaster ๐Ÿ˜„ I remember a 10 second time penalty for an early start in SS2 followed by crashes. On SS3 the car was already pretty heavily damaged and to top that I got a puncture midway through. In service area I could only repair the engine, radiator and turbo and still got 10 seconds time penalty because I had not enough time. Several other parts were still damaged. SS4 to SS7 were pretty good, but the damage on the car made it a bit wonky at times. Wales was ok. No really big mistakes, only 1 or 2 times I crashed slightly into the ditch against a tree at low speed in the first leg. The car was surprisingly pretty heavily damaged, but I could repair everything. No real mistakes done in the whole rally, but I had low grip all the time and my runs felt pretty slow. Had no chance against @baunau here, even in sectors were I thought being pretty good I was a second or so down. But it was a huge close battle with @Dytut all the time and really fun. Had a VERY good first sector in SS7 with more than 4 seconds in front, but lost control after the 5 left after the second water splash and came off the track right before the hairpin. Managed to recover quickly and finished without more issues. Finland will be a nightmare ๐Ÿ˜„

    Because it's pretty obvious what to do. It's a racing game. The more you drive, the better you get. Sure, it can help to change the controller-settings a bit, or a good tuning setup. But you don't really need that, everything on default is good enough to a certain point, wich you definitely didn't reached yet. Maybe try a different camera, I play in cockpit-view, I would be a lot slower in 3rd person. And like I said: focus on one car. Changing them all the time can be confusing, because they often have different reactions on input. Best would be either H1 FWD (Cooper S or Fulvia) or R5 (Space Star, Fabia or Polo). R5 being very fast, but the cars are pretty easy to drive. Just stick to one specific R5 and play with it for a while.

    Excuses. Lots of excuses. I play with a controller and I am able to beat Masters and there is still room for more. And I am not even close to the top leaderboard guys. Don't waste your time with excuses and complaining, focus on getting better. If you have trouble getting better, focus on a specific car.

    The Solberg World Cup

    @PJTierney What the f happened on your run? I got 5 (FIVE) punctures along the way (2 of them on the same stage), never had a spare. The first 2 longs I basically did completely (crashed shortly after the first sector in SS1) on a puncture. Had several more crashes, spins, runs on a puncture, time penalties and nearly broken car most of the time. Can't believe I still placed in front of you ๐Ÿคฃ That was probably my worst event in a long time (without retiring) with more than 12 minutes behind the leader. But I missed Monaco, retired in Sweden and just did an okish Greece run, so the whole championship was a mess. USA was quite good in the top 100, but everything else...meh ๐Ÿ˜„
