  1. I'm more than happy that with the latest update, ApexOnlineRacing (AOR) is able to finally bring back its Rallycross (RX) leagues on DiRT Rally 2.0 (DR2.0). AOR is known for having had some of the best Esports drivers compete in its leagues, both on F1 and DiRT, some you may know: Joona P Veloce_Iza BillyCherokee KickedInYoo Oscaro Quinto Etc. And now these leagues are back in business and everyone is able to join! We're looking for drivers who enjoy a fair bit of clean competitive racing, regardless of whether you're fast or slow. I'll proceed to explain a little bit more about the league, but if you want to skip straight to business, go here (https://apexonlineracing.com/community/threads/aor-rx-dr2-0-season-1-sign-up-thread.55289/#post-779215) First things first, you need to know that these events will be held on saturdays, starting at 7:30pm BST. Depending on how far you make it into the event, it can last up to 2-3 hours. So if you don't have the time for it, I'd not recommend signing up. That said, it isn't mandatory to attend every event, as long as you cancel ahead of time with the person in charge. Secondly, this league tries to maintain a fairly realistic format within the current restrictions of the game, there will be 3 4-lap heats, where the top 10 go into a 1 of 2 6-lap semi-final races. The top 2 of the semi-finals move on to the finals. On top of that, those who finished 3rd and 4th in either semi-final, will face off against each other to still earn a spot in the final, in a so-called Sudden Death Final. (This to accomodate the fact that DR2.0 doesn't allow us to handpick grid types and starting order) The winner of the Sudden Death Final will move on to the Final and compete against the 4 other drivers to decide who wins the event. Once the event has finished, points will be distributed based on your overall heat performance, semi-final performance and final performance. Whoever holds the most points at the end of the season wins the Drivers' Championship. The Championship will take place on all 8 locations currently in the game, with future seasons adding more tracks as the Codemasters updates the game, which'll see you race against all drivers on these vastly different tracks in different weather conditions in the RX Supercars. If you're interested, go check out this thread (https://apexonlineracing.com/community/threads/aor-rx-dr2-0-season-1-sign-up-thread.55289/#post-779215) NOTE: It can take a day before your account is activated For more information you can always contact me on: Twitter: @RSR_SereneLogic Discord: RSR SereneLogic#5155 Steam: RSR SereneLogic Hope to see some of you sign up 🙂
  2. @ChristinaMc Are there plans for making a separate settings list for the single race format? I'd love to be able to start with 6 people in a (semi-)final starting grid and preferably even decide who starts where Also, any idea when we can expect a spectator toggle for participants? PS: Good to finally have this update tho

    DR2.0 - Multiplayer Features for Leagues

    @ChristinaMc That is exactly what we wanted to hear, thank you so very much. As I said in my reddit post, we do understand certain things are taking a long time due to either back-end issues or as with the FFB the rather complicated and complex nature of the problem. But we're glad to have some solid information to go by now, that's what my goal was when I created that post, to get more information to act on and convey to all members of the community. I do hope nothing was conveyed too negatively, I have nothing but respect for every single person working with or in the game. ❤️

    DR2.0 - Multiplayer Features for Leagues

    Adding a bit on top of this, there have been serious mentions of desyncs and disappearing cars in Multiplayer....Might want to fix that too 🙂
  5. Since the announcement of DiRT Rally 2.0 leagues such as AOR (ApexOnlineRacing) have been carefully planning and preparing their leagues to accommodate for the demand of competitive league featuring DiRT Rally 2.0 However since the release of DiRT Rally 2.0 it has become apparent that in the release build of the game neither Rallycross or Rally leagues, at the quality that AOR is known for, are possible. I heavily suggest that the following features are added as soon as possible, seeing as the latest announcement mentions a partnership regarding Esports events. People will want to prepare for this, both existing and new simracers, so in order for that to be possible, leagues need to be possible. The tools in order to make a Rally league possible are easily explained, clubs (or that's what they were called in DiRT 4). This would enable league organizers and coordinators to set up and run championships with a large group of people, without needing every single participant to be present in a lobby, which is the luxury and quality we're used to since DiRT Rally and DiRT 4. In order to make a Rallycross league possible three, preferably four, features would need to be added. These features are as follows: The ability to disable AI in Multiplayer Lobbies, since at the moment we're unable to filter out the AI. (Which also ruins the joy for me personally to do Multiplayer at all. I'm sure some people appreciate it, but at least making it optional would benefit either side of this argument) The ability to select which type of starting grid we use in a single race, i.e. a horizontal lineup (as WRX has during Heats) and a staggered lineup (as WRX has during Semi-Finals and Finals). As right now we're always forced into a heat format if we select to run a single race, which really doesn't feel right. An idea for this would be to look at the DiRT 4 feature where we could decide between the format "Timed" and "Position". The ability to assign starting grid positions to each participant in the lobby (this requires both previous points). This would enable us to hold the league as close to the WRX format as possible, since in WRX your starting position means everything, especially considering starting from the front is way more advantageous over starting from the back row. This means we would be able to hold an x number of heats which lead into a Semi-Final where the winner and the runner-up of the overall heat standings start on pole position in there respective semi-finals. The ability to spectate and toggle to be a spectator in a lobby. This isn't mandatory but both for future official Esports events and leagues such as AOR, having a dedicated streamer broadcast and commentate on your event makes the overall league and event much more open to the audience and again improves the overall quality of the league. (Who doesn't love to watch close side-by-side racing) The aforementioned features would be necessary to hold any kind of decent RX league if you ask me, some to enable a league at all, others to stay as true to the WRX format and some to open it up to people who aren't involved in the event/league. And seeing as there is an official Esports partnership these features would probably be highly appreciate by both simracers, league organizers/coordinators and the organizers of the Esports events. These were my suggestions and I really hope these features are looked over and implemented as soon as possible, even though I know being a developer is a lot of work and they over get overlooked, the community would appreciate these features a lot (Even more than custom liveries, which are also nice to add some individuality to both singleplayer, multiplayer, competitive leagues and Esports events). On top of that if they're already in development or are going to be taken into development, organizers and league coordinators would love to know ahead of time so they can plan and schedule.
