    I've been asking since the game came out. I've seen no response whatsoever 😞

    2019 FIA World Rallycross Championship

    eh, I wouldn't pay too much attention to what Timmy said after Q4 about the Audis trying to use Larsson to take him out. he was clearly still very angry about what had happened to him in Q1 and Q2 on the previous day. it was a stupid thing to say, and it was obviously wrong. I hope he will (and I think he might) apologise for that statement and admit he was wrong. that mechanic though.... so unprofessional. I don't know, I watched that Bakkerud video and it was nice to get a little more insight into what was going on, but I didn't find it that informative or interesting, to be honest. I've liked Bakkerud since I started watching this series in 2017, but this just feels kind of shallow 😕 just my take on things *shrugs*

    Distribution chart on results page?

    you realise you can scroll up and down that list, right? you can see a lot more than 12 driver names at once. your idea is great though. having one of these at each post-race screen in the community challenges would be excellent. gives a much better idea of how you're doing against everyone after each stage! that looks great! unless I'm mistaken, however, I think you've got the balance in times between the Tiers wrong. they're not divided 25/25/25/25. they're divided 10/25/40/25, with Tier 1 being the top 10%. so to get in the top two tiers you don't just have to be in the to half, you have to be in the top 35%, which is much harder. you'd also need some way to show the DNFs, as they get put into Tier 4... but obviously just making a bar to represent all 294 of them would not help as it would look super weird, dwarfing the other bars that have at most 45 times this carries over into the AI challenges too. you're still rewarded based on your Tier, but you're against the AI, so there's only 30 total drivers. this means that to be in Tier 1 you have to be on the podium!
  5. hopefully one day we'll get to use that livery on the 2001 Focus... i hope you mean 10/10 😉

    How to play DR2.0 career with no bonuses?

    what caerphotos said. nothing is being forced on you. I could understand if these were permanent changes to your progression, but everything gifted to you that you are taking so much time to complain about takes literally a few minutes to undo. the fact that you think this is a problem is frankly astounding.

    yah, I've finished them all now. you get something for winning the R5 one, but that's it 😕

    How to play DR2.0 career with no bonuses?

    are those post by "players who share your mindset" also complaining about the progression in DR2 for people who have the Deluxe access? because I do share it, but I don't agree that this is worth starting a thread to complain about jumping through hoops. just sell the stuff. it takes 2 minutes. the extra unlocked cars you got give you 0 credits when you sell them, so you can't even make extra free money this way. if you don't want to bother buying and selling cars, you could also spend the cash you have on upgrades. 1.4 million doesn't actually go that far in the game when you factor in durability upgrades and unlocking tuning for each vehicle as well as upgrades to the team. those get very expensive very quickly. to fully upgrade 1 engineer it's around 600k, and the final engineer costs 1.2 million or something just to hire. my point is that as a late purchaser you're getting a ton of extra free content at once, so the amount of free stuff is more noticeable. most of us who had the same DLC package started with way less simply because it hadn't all come out yet. I've been around long enough to remember standalone games and no microtransactions (in fact, I kind of missed the transition period). but this isn't a cheat code. like, it's really not a big deal. the team and car upgrades take a lot of money, and so when you're at the beginning the amount of cash you get is ok. but once you've upgraded most of the cars and done the team ones, you quickly start to run out of things to spend money on, which kind of sucks. and yeah, once you get past the Clubman level in the career it's much harder to win races. but yes it takes a while to get there. if you're winning everything and you want to save time, you can skip events by starting them and then retiring. you'll get 0 points, but you only need to finish in the top 3 of the championship to advance to the next level.

    How to play DR2.0 career with no bonuses?

    your assumption that "lots of players are not interested in extra money or shortcuts" is just that, an assumption. when the game came out, those of us with the deluxe edition started with like 1 000 000 credits and 7 cars: the 2 starter cars plus the 5 early unlocks. buying the game late, you have ended up with all those plus all the DLC cars, which were put in our garages for free, but only 2 cars every 4 weeks. it made more sense that way (though I agree, I would have liked to pay for them in the Buy Cars section, I have a ridiculous amount of cash now and nothing to spend it on). honestly, the selling and buying cars thing to lose your money is really not hard. sure, it's not ideal, but it gets you where you want to be. he's talking about the Career mode section in My Team. Championships have a maximum of 6 locations (4 is incorrect) in them because if people haven't bought the DLC they would be stuck doing each location twice, which isn't ideal. I would advise you to not pay too much attention to this poster however. much of what they say is very whiny.

    if I remember correctly I remember being told probably 1.9. if not I guess 1.10. so like early October.
  11. It'd be nice to have a few of these pre-set championships with pre-assigned car classes and stuff, as well as have more opportunities to do the excellent DLC locations. obviously if you're going to include content from both halves of of the DLC calendar (ie seasons 1/2 and 3/4) people are going to need to own all of the content required. like, you could have two <2000cc championships, one for the 2001-2005 cars and another for the 2007-2010 ones. I can see Sweden, Monte Carlo, Finland, Wales and Greece being a nice 5-location one for these cars. another for the F2 kit cars with both tarmac locations, plus like Greece, Poland and Australia or something you get the idea. I can't imagine it'd be that hard to set up, but then I'm not the one working on this game so I don't know lol anyways, what do you think?

    Dirt Rally 2 Co Driver comments at end of stages

    for me they're fine, but they would heavily benefit from what you said. I played a lot of Dirt 4 (less of DR1) and they were generally a bit more detailed - even though it was all procedurally generated!

    also, I don't think many people do Historic Championships, but you can use it in the Present Day RGT championship against the Mustang and Camaro. I did it last week and it was pretty fun even though I am absolutely terrible with RWD cars. (the 911 and Aston have their own championship to themselves in the Modern section.)
