  1. Tried Wales. Poor Polo. Frankly, I'm amazed it even kept going to the end of the first stage. So many collisions. About a minute into stage 2 and retiring was the only realistic option. Not my finest.
  2. Definitely up for some R5 action. Germany went pretty well. Got within a second or so of @baunau after SS5, but then kept losing concentration on the two night stages. Still, kept it (mostly) on the road and finished! Still really, really enjoying the dash cam.
  3. Ha. Had a shot at Finland. First stage was awesome, probably a PB. The rest were all laughably bad. Pretty sure I know exactly why though - I tried driving with dashcam instead of cockpit, and it felt amazing. Seemed like I could see the road so much better, so I could push way more. Hard to tell but I reckon my pace was much quicker than usual, and either way it certainly felt fast. Of course, the flipside of that was I ended up clipping trees and rolling out by taking corners too fast (I'm never normally going fast enough for this to be a problem...). The many punctures and resets saw
  4. Time constraints are annoying. The bug with the league during the group A season probably didn't help with keeping people interested either. I did manage to give my favourite location a shot today though! Came in cold, having only raced in dailies for the last month or so. Turns out my concentration was severely lacking, and after a double-figures number of offs I rage-retired near the start of SS3. Not even remotely competitive. Hopefully I can put together a better showing next weekend!
  5. Just started a new job, so I've had very little time for rally lately. Hopefully compete here and there again soon, thanks for the reminder!
  6. Retired halfway through stage one. Sweden does not like me.  :D
  7. Well that was an awful run. Punctures, spins, spectators, you name it. Retired on stage 6. Yay. ...but at least leagues seem to be working again ;)
  8. Most definitely. Half the league are (edit: or were, maybe there're back now) missing from them anyway. I wonder if there's actually any logical explanation to the distribution of points.
  9. I can see the new season at https://www.dirtgame.com/uk/leagues/league/27130/drc now. Everything looks normal, except the standings which are still at thousands of points. Whether it will all work as normal remains to be seen. ;)
  10. Well I'm pretty sure that doesn't look right. Funky. And I get a 500 error if I try to view the league. Thinking I'll be giving leagues a wide berth until this gets ironed out. :/ EDIT: Just refreshed the page and the points have all increased by ~100. Wonder how high they'll go!
  11. It sucks you couldn't get in. I was really looking forward to seeing if I could manage to finish ahead of you in Wales - now passing you on the overall leaderboard feels hollow :( Still, the position 3-5 battle was pretty tight indeed! EDIT: Just noticed @YoMrWhite (and probably others) aren't appearing in the league standings any more. I guess this is linked to the racenet downtime/problems from today.  :/
  12. Wales went OK. Seems like both Headquake and vajb had a pretty bad time on the last long stage, as I made up a big chunk of time. Final stage was going well until I clipped something and went face-first into a tree on the inside of the last corner in the last group of trees. Finished a couple of secs behind vajb. I'm sure since getting through the crazy-endurance-survival-trophy at the end of last season I've been driving so much better. Consistency over speed seems to be working out quite well - I've certainly got many more points than last season! Just got to keep the consistency consistent
  13. Yeah, sounds good. If it were up to me, I wouldn't mind a rule of not repeating any class until they've all been done, so we get a season with every class. I completely understand that some classes are much less... enjoyable than others though, which varies from person to person, so maybe it isn't such a good idea to everyone. Just putting it out there.
  14. The only reason I usually need to Alt+F4 is when for whatever reason my internet has a moment and the time upload/leaderboard download gets stuck. I get into a loop of 'can't connect' -> I press ok, it retries -> 'can't connect' -> etc. Only way to get back to the menus is to quit out and restart (unless there's another way I'm missing?). In fact, this happened to me in the wager today - had to alt+f4 out and my time wasn't recorded. Goodbye 200000 credits :( Feels unfair in these cases, so a single alt+f4 followed by insta-retire if you do it again seems to make sense. It's not idea
  15. Several lapses of concentration and one misheard pacenote later, my experience in Finland can be summed up by the following: Driving Finland with four wheels: great fun, flowing as well as ever, setting PBs Driving Finland with two punctures: significantly less fun
