    DiRT Rally 2.0 World Series - 2020 Season

    Ah I see, thanks for the update! Hoped you didn't reply yet though because I had another addition to my question which is that the car class is also not specified even though the rulebook says 'cars and stages as follows'.

    Just to add some information for people. Higher degradation is faster in New Zealand because the turns have more banking than normal and thus you can carry more speed through a sharp turn. Time trial is much slower in comparison. Last year (world series) in R2 for example I was doing 8:19s on Waimarama point forward (custom event, starting P16) but in time trial 8:24-25 seems like a comparable time. So ye, a degraded surface is not slower at all on some locations and practicing time trial is not the way to go. Most people check runs on youtube that people have uploaded to see if the degradation levels are very high or very low. Then go into custom events and start/retire until they get a degradation level that matches what they see in the videos and start to practice that. If you press restart and then quit to main after the finish (or just restart) you can use that same event for multiple days without having to worry about needing to find the correct position again. You can't select the starting position yourself so you just have to remake the entire custom event over and over until you get the roll you want which isn't great but within 15 minutes you're usually fine. And yes, 4:14.6 is a sick time. Did a 15.9 myself with a different car, no idea how they are able to handle the escort so well. Super hard to drive so massive respect to them. If you want to try and qualify though, get an xbox since the winning time this week was a 4:25 or something.. Question for PJ: is there a typo in the rulebook for the qualifying final stages? Stages 2 and 3 match the stages we drove in the online qualification but stage 1 is now the reverse and not the forward. Is this correct or should it be the same stages?

    What is the famous potato field? If it's the one in Kopina that one doesn't even save a full second and this NZ one saves way more than that 😕 If it was Czarny Las then ye, that was quite an off-track festival with one driver exploring for half of sector 4 if I recall correctly 😅 Nice to hear you've taken this into account! Using these things is not something most top drivers like but it is almost required. The stages picked barely have any of them though which is nice so again thanks for doing that! A personal downside is that this probably caused 3 stages in Spain haha EDIT://Speaking of cuts. Holjes seems to be broken and it seems the PS4 guy is legit according to the rules. Cutting half the track can be classified as a major problem I reckon. And Holjes will appear again in 2 months time.

    First two times on PS4 in RX need to be investigated. 19 and 2 seconds faster than the current champion, sure.

    Again split by platform and in TT format? The xbox people better step it up this time otherwise I'll regret not buying one for an easy spot. Sounds harsh but it was the reality last time around. Apart from maybe 1-2 people there were 50-100 faster people that could've gotten those qualifier spots based on their times.

    DiRT Rally 2.0 - In-Game Server Connectivity

    PC/Steam/Europe/Club event Connection failed after SS2. Code = 35002aab00477c3-3a311d18-0-2. Been trying for 10 minutes now. This stuff has been going on since release, inexcusable.

    AI Times Are Completely Off

    You have to understand though, the F2 kitcars are so new in this game that the career leaderboards will not be populated at all yet. Therefore your reference to the cross platform leaderboard is quite meaningless in this debate for this class.
