    @PJTierney, this is a good example of why your games like DR2.0 and Grid needs proper gaming statistics! It is very off putting to play a game when you are literally in pitch dark not knowing your progress. It is like 40 days in Sahara. To me it seems just lazy not to have anything in this department, then again I’m not a game developer. But having trackers of how I do, where I’m driving, for how long etc. is actually playing a crucial role for keeping up the interest of a game. Just look at the popularity of smart watches... 😎

    Dirt Rally 2.0 vs WRC8 with PS4 Controller

    I’ve always wondered why I was a tier better on taramac than on gravel in this game, but that was before I realised the following: The faster you go, the more grip you have on gravel. I have seen several videos with really fast players which makes the game look insane at those speeds. Hence dodgy physics. This effect don’t kick in for those of us that try to drive more normal/realisticly, so yes, the physics gives advantages to the pro gamers. 😇 Having said that, I really coudn’t care less about the top gamers, but I care about realism in the racing games I play. And when Codemasters let the AI be so fast that you have to drive like a pro gamer taking advantage of all the weaknesses in the game including shortcuts and what not, plus the advantage of the grip at high speeds, to maybe be close to a top ten, just to satisfy a couple of hundred top gamers, I think Codemasters missed their target... 😬

    Dirt Rally 2.0 vs WRC8 with PS4 Controller

    Easiest to play? Actually, it’s difficult to say. I have some 20,000 km experience with DR2.0 by now using the stock DS4. I haven’t been playing WRC8 as much I would like yet because I’m waiting for a patch fixing some of the trophies so I can continue my way to platinum. DR2.0 has a more intuitive controls than WRC8 which is less complex. But when you get the hang of it, I would say that WRC8 is the easiest of the two games. In addition WRC8 has way better AI than DR2.0, that makes WRC8 more accessible for more people. Both games have some dodgy physics, where DR2.0 has built in physics to give pro gamers advantages over the average players. The physics in WRC8 suffers more for its simplisity. But to summarise: Both games plays great on PS4 with the standard PS4 controller - no need for steeringwheel and bucket seat to enjoy these games. 😎👍🏻 Personally I prefer DR2.0 though. 😊 If you are like me, a rally enthusiast/purist, you will enjoy both. 😉
  4. Splendid! Now if there were liveries, CR or something for competing, that would be great. 🙂 I like being a millionair, so I’m building up my CR, soon reaching 40,000,00! 🤠
  5. Jupp, but it is achievable for everyone if they just put their mind to it. 😊 I forgot to say that the 144 stages should be completed with full damage set to on as well. 😊 Rally is about endurance and keep the car in good enough shape to complete the events without terminal damage. I would even go longer: If you manage to get 5 «Merry Christmas» liveries, you should be rewarded a «New Years Evening» livery for you favourite car. That would be really rare, and should earn high respect among true rally purists. 😎👍🏻
  6. As for the liveries, I’m ok with this if they are released for everyone before the desupport of the game. I think it is sad if the Wandering star livery is for the top arcade racers only. 😉 I think Codemasters should encourage more realistic driving skills instead, so I have have a better idea: Why not let the players have a «Merry Christmas» livery for every car they manage to go through a full rally calendar, that is 12 rallies with all 12 stages each, a total of 144 stages in custom championship during the month of December! All 144 stages must be completed, and no retirements allowed. This way everyone can have a «Merry Christmas» livery on their favourite cars.
  7. Interesting explanation of the «curve ball effect» in Dirt Rally series from 08:39 - 09:13. And: The faster you go, the more grip and control you get over the car. In other words: DR2.0 encourages arcade driving style. 😖
  8. This is excellent, but for those of us on PS4 (and consloe in general), it can’t be accessed. 🙁 @PJTierney, why can’t this sort of statistics be a part of the game itself??

    Sweden whiteout

    The problem is not if it is too difficult or not. The problem is the huge difference between outside cameras and the in-car view AND the fact that the AI isn’t affected by the weather conditions. The game is struggling with the consistency in these areas.

    Leaderboards option on Main Menu

    Generally, the lack of statistics in this game is a big miss in this game. I guess game developers don’t find statistics, record lists and telemetry data interesting enough... 😢 I have put up some requests in this department as well:

    Sweden whiteout

    I have to fully agree with OP here. As an in-car-cam-only driver, I regret having to go to bumper cam when it snows in daytime in Sweden. The developers should really do something about this issue!🤔

    Option to remove tarmac events from championship

    Watching WRC live from Spain right now, and I can honestly not see the problem with asphalt in this game compared to other games in the market on Playstation 4. I think taramac in DR 2.0 is quite enjoyable and it looks very similar to the behaviour of the WRC cars on my TV right now. 😊👍🏻 I want another DLC-taramac rally location in DR 2.0. 😜

    DiRTy Gossip

    I remember CMR1 well, played the game a lot. Thanks for sharing, @sqdstr. 🙂 Codemasters had the official licenses back in late 90s, both for Colin McRae Rally 1 and Colin McRae Rally 2.0.

    Daily M2 GT

    From what I understand, there is a bug in My team. The M2 has a turbo, in contrary to the other cars in the GT class. The problem is that the turbo is not available to fix. So when your turbo is damaged, it is not available to the crew for fixing nor replacing the part when it is broken or worn out. I don’t know if Codemasters are aware of the problem, though.

    Tarmac Physics and FFB

    Interesting reading, and I have to agree, even though I use the stock DS4 on the PS4 and not a steeringwheel.
