    DiRTy Gossip

    Damn. @PJTierney has just passed me on reps 😶 Hail to the new king! It has been a good journey.
  2. Eventually and hopefully the zone limits will be adjusted to prevent this in the future. Either reset or time penalty like in other CM games.

    Is the WRC license really a loss?

    While I find it a shame to be missing out on the current cars and tracks, i'm really more inclined to the rally golden era of the late 90s till 2004. What bothers me the most about DR2 is the lack of stages per rally, as there should be another route to pair with the existing one in each rally. Also the fact that the stage length is limited by the engine. A wider range of stages is needed, and since we won't see this one in DR2 I'm hoping DR3 gets the definitive improvement in this area. This game engine is old and we need a new one in order for this series to progress. WRC8's few advantages is the variety of stages, even if they aren't really accurate to their real counterparts. Another weak spot that has been improved but isn't quite there is the lack of early 2000s cars, and having them put in its own class. Efforts have been made in this game, specially with the return of the so demanded 206 WRC. The next logical step is to approach the Citroen Xsara and SEAT Cordoba and put them all in a special class so that events can be properly done without any handicaps. Finally but not least important, there's some game design decisions that could've been better regarding My Team. My Team is a platform with so much potential but it looks like it hasn't been properly put to use. While a single-player career mode could've been implemented, My Team could've been the ultimate multiplayer esports platform for everything - a full online career in which ultimately you'd have the conditions to participate in esports events. Just like GRID (2 or Autosport, can't remember) had its own multiplayer career mode. However, they opted to host all of this stuff outside My Team, and with the arriving of Clubs My Team is mostly useless and inactive apart from Community Events. My Team could've been the whole multiplayer platform, including Clubs. Instead, they chopped the multiplayer into separated modes, creating redundancies. This game overall is great, not perfect. We'll never achieve the perfect game, because there's so much to add in a game like this that we'll never ever get there. There's no perfection in life. We can, however, learn with each iteration of this Rally series and improve upon the next one. This series is crying out loud for a new engine. There's no point developing a 3rd game in this same engine, because it's getting so limited in so many areas that we are gradually reaching and scratching. - Stage length. - Dynamic weather with live terrain and grip deformation/change. - Staggered starts, both with cars in the stage or invisible. - Tarmac physics and others - More realistic and hardcore damage, the current hardcore isn't hardcore enough imo.
  4. You can buy stuff individually.
  5. For those who don't have anything, not even the game, the Super Deluxe brings everything. You don't buy the base + deluxe + super deluxe, that's wasting money buying duplicate content. Those like me who have pre-ordered the Deluxe Edition, if they want to buy new stuff either buy the Deluxe 2.0 which is Season 3 + Season 4, or buy things individually at their taste. For example, since I'm not interested in Season 4's RX content, I'm opting to purchase only the Season 3 content except for Yas Marina circuit.
  6. Yes, this is a very hot subject that has been discussed for quite a while now. There needs to be a policy regarding these cuts. This is not about how we can tackle these cuts, because there are several ways to do it: applying penalty times, making the offroad terrain have more attriction and slippery, whatever works. Since this cannot be done in time for the qualifiers, i would suggest using the already implemented ghost technology to check top times and see if people are using cuts.
  7. DR1 is done for. Makes no sense going back when we have a way superior game in DR2. The only way is to keep building on DR2 while a new engine gets developed for DR3 in the background.
  8. Can you stop posting amazing liveries? Who am I kidding, just keep posting these! Ever thought of porting the Focus 2001 Martini liveries onto the Fiesta R5? Could look interesting.
  9. When everyone got extra cars in Season 1 and Season 2, while it only said since the begining that it would only bring 5 cars each, noone batted an eye. Just saying, I feel cheated. Anyway, things were pretty crystal clear. Season 3 and 4 are for those who want to keep supporting this game and see more content added to their game. It's an option, and as in all options you have to choices: to take it or to leave it be while you convince yourself to take it.
  10. Yes! At least 1 extra route (they currently use 1 route) would be awesome. I think that's the main wish from the community now, more than the cars.

    Upcoming dash cam?

    Hahaha damn Jake i feel for you. I hope with the dashcam update you can finally play properly, as you've been hitting this button for a long time. You deserve it. Someone else would've already given up either on the topic or on the game, so kudos to you tough warrior. 😄
  12. DiRT Rally 1: 6 rallies, less than 50 cars. People cried for paid DLC to expand it further. DiRT Rally 2.0: 6 rallies with over 50 cars at launch. 4 paid seasons of good DLC (in my perspective ofc), unfortunately more RX than i wished for but it's alright, and some people are losing their minds. This has been said countless times by various players: this is the best rally game we have to date, and right now we have the possibility of running a full championship calendar in the DiRT Rally series. Don't put that in the bin. S3 rally content is estimated @ 17€, not 30. It's still a bargain, despite the stages being imported from DR1, there's the 206 coming in after so many years absent, plus the returning stages have had stage degradation implemented, and some texture work among a few other things that require time and manpower to work on. Do not overlook the returning rallies are just a mere recycle. These stages are run every year on WRC (well except for Greece), so it is expectable for these stages to keep returning to rallies. Not even WRC8 is able to replicate Finland, and it's the official IP. The community got what it asked for, and they have been transparent from day one regarding Deluxe Edition coverage. It was very explicit that D+ events were for Deluxe Edition owners only, and that it would include only Season 1 and Season 2. It was written way before the game released, only for those who wanted to read it.
  13. You guys have to consider the amount of content being brought. Many of you are just looking at the rally content, in which if you only want to purchase that, it'll be around 17€. I'm sure if both seasons were rally-only content, noone would be complaining this much. Take the RX pricing out of equation and things get more bearable. In my opinion the pricing is right and just, given the amount of content coming in these 2 seasons. There's no way 20 dollars would pay off two seasons, plus DLC in other games are quite more expensive than this (take Assetto Corsa and Forza Horizon 4 for an instance) in terms of content per dollar and/or hour/$. Do not forget from where the DiRT Rally spin-off genre came from, and the current circunstances with all the individual brand licensing bs this studio has to deal. This is not a FIA supported title by no means. It is a title supported by us, to us.
  14. Oh wait you actually mean DiRT Rally 1. Well i guess the bar has to be in the middle then.
