    I agree and I have to say, I'll probably end up buying it... Most likely not on release date, but when the price drops I'll give it a good look I know it probably won't drive as good as DR2 on gravel, but what I've seen from the past few games is quite good to be honest

    Reminds me of an awesome flyby of Neuville a few years ago during Rally Catalunya. Truly on the limit, or maybe a bit further but he kept it together beautifully

    Some things never change. Crashing within a minute of the start in Scotland? Of course. By the way, I want random overanalyzing of this video just to find some Gossip... what is that map in the background?

    This is the idea I like the most so far. I like cars to behave as they did back in their days, and if they weren't particularly competitive, so be it. But there are more than enough cars in DR2 for some to match the performance of the slower cars in a class, and I think multiclass would bring a nice layer of complexity to the game while also being closer, in terms of times, than some "unbalanced" classes.

    The Hyundai is the WRCar I like the most, even though I preferred last year's livery (I know it's pretty much identical but something changed around the front grille) The Yaris looks absolutely mad though... just not as beautiful

    The Yaris WRC looks like something exaggerated out of a comic about modified cars for midnight street racing. The fact that not only it is real, but it also wins in the top class of rallying is amazing and I absolutely love it for this!

    I would say it's a bit more than just a jacked up Porsche... The amount of work that has been done is quite a thing, and on a technical level that car looks marvelous. It is true that it's a lot more of a Raid car than a Rally car but then again, Porsche won the Dakar so it's not something completely alien from their background. That said it still doesn't make any sense to exist, but it's completely mad and I'm glad that it does!

    I didn't check this for a bit and when I come back I find a debate about center pivot physics and an AD for bikers only cruises. I guess this topic really NEVER does disappoint. Of all the paintings in history, you chose the one that most famously was altered and revised constantly by his author until his death... I am not a huge fan of the theory "If it ain't broke, don't fix it", sorry. I believe there is always room for improvement, expecially in a field such as racing games development where simplicity isn't really a good thing.
  9. That challenge is also bugged... I have two out of three fastest laps already counted, I did a three laps race with Sergio Perez yesterday, won, did the fastest lap on lap 3 and crossed the line on 0% battery. I did not get the Monza achievement and neither the Battery one. I play on PS4 with a pad but I did not get some achievements even while playing with a wheel.
  10. I can confirm this is not exclusive to PC as I tried to do the same, getting pole position and win in Mexico with George Russell, multiple times on PS4 and I never got the challenges. I also finished a race with 0% battery multiple times but that one didn't pop either, so it's not exclusive to Week 8. I am sure I was online and connected because I got the due XP for completing a race but I never got the XP for the challenges.

    This isn't much of a Gossip, but I just wanted to really say thank you to the devs of this game. For context, my good old pedal set from the Thrustmaster T300 recently did a Maverick Viñales: the brake pedal snapped in half as I was approaching Turn 1 in Hungary on F1 2020, therefore I've had to go back to my roots and play all racing games with a pad. To my surprise, the only game which allows me to drive without making an utter fool of myself is the one that also offer the most stuff I could crash into: DiRT Rally 2.0 I mean, in all the circuit racing games the worst thing I could manage to crash into is a barrier or my teammate, and I inevitably crash into one of them EACH RACE. DiRT, on the other hand, gives me a plethora of hard stuff to bend my car around, and still the gamepad controls are so good that I don't. Well, I don't crash more than I did with the wheel, that is. This is all to say, thank you guys❤️

    Okay, great to know. And since the Mk2 has the proper audio, great to hear too...

    The Mk.8 Fiesta has always been a weird one for me, at least in its Rally versions... sometimes I really like them, sometimes I feel like there's something not quite right. Might be because I absolutely loved the Mk.7 Fiesta WRC post-facelift. Although I have to say, the new Fiesta R5 looks a lot better than the current Fiesta WRC, might be the headlights. I have a question though, do I need to have Playstation Plus to access the World Series?

    I find the Polish landscape to tear up pretty much anything I drive there. Expecially front bumpers and radiators, but doors too sometimes

    The current cars are MAD and I absolutely love them, I was mainly talking about the current state of the Championship. We must also consider that COVID-19 will surely not do well to the finances of teams and that in 2022 the current cars will be replaced by Rally1 cars that are supposed to be more economical but also less advanced.
