    Hi guys, back after seeing the season 2 DLC. To people who are dissapointed: - You only need to buy the rally stuff, not need to bvuy RX stuff as well. (though maybe unlucky a bit for the deluxe players, but it was mentioned before that season 2 would be RX or more RX focused DLC) - There are people who like rally, or rallycross or both. Still don't get the whining everytime. Even if everything is rally content you guys are still whining. Never anything good for some of you guys. Overall I am good with the DLC so far. Season 2 seems interesting, but i am also a bit suprised. All cars are Group B focused, let's say historic. But the combination with a modern and a classic RX locations makes it wonder where is the release of a modern RX car. I am looking forward to the Estering. Last year with World RX is was there visiting my first ever RX event, so I would love to give it a try. It will be a challenge. About the 'special' liveries (which actually are fake and loosely based on iconic colors), I hope now some real World RX liveries will be added. At least more seasons will be coming as it is known that the MINI RX, 2001 Impreza and 2001 Focus will be coming and there is rumours about the 206 Rally and i20 Rx. With 6 more locations expected, this probably will be season 3 and 4. My expectations are as following: - Seasons 3 and 4 will be mixed with rally and rx content Tracks - Seasons 3 will have 2 rx locations and 1 rally location: 2 remaining 2018 World RX tracks (South Africa and CotA) and Greece or Finland as the rally location - Seasons 4 will have 2 rx locations and 1 rally location: 2 2019 world RX tracks (Spa and Abu Dhabi) and Greece or Finaland as the rally locations. Cars - 10 - 12 more cars --- RX: MINI Supercar / Hyundai i20 Supercar / VW Beetle / Ford Focus / SEAT Ibiza / Renault Clio --- Rally: Peugeot 206 2001 / Ford Focus 2001 / Subaru Impreza 2001 / Seat kitcar / Nissan kitcar / Peugeot kitcar

    Spa Rx track please

    Yes, still wonder what will be in the Season 2 RX focused content. It still can go any way. With the Group B RX confirmed, it has nothing to do with the current World RX, so maybe that makes also the way free for Lydden Hill to make a return. The MINI of Bennett is also confirmed, but competed in both ARX and WRX in 2018. So maybe we could also expect a ARX focused DLC package, maybe including the Beetle and Focus. But it can also be for "completing" the 2018 season with the tracks, MINI, maybe the i20 and a livery pack. Although unlikely, but possible a 2019 focused DLC package. I think IMG would love to give the current championship attention. But the season not started long time ago, so i don't know if that has been realistic with planning.

    Oh yes, and bring this SPA track to DR2.0 with better multiplayer (driving again others instead of AI) and it will bring a lot of fun 🙂

    Rallycross 2019

    Hi, long time no post here for me. But i enjoyed the Spa event a lot. - The spa track seems a lot of fun. Maybe a bit to short. I think they could the climb in Eau Rouge / Raddilion a bit longer so this part becomes a bit more challenging. - The gravel section is awesome and seemed to fit the old school and rally drivers a bit more (Doran, Bakkerud) than the younger or circuit drivers. - The gravel is sure deep. They said multiple lines would be possible, one side true (the inside line or the 'racing line'), but they couldn't take the outside line. So maybe they should check this. But overall it seems that the organisers checked this banked corner from NRX. So Pastrana already had influence on at least one new RX track. It felt like a propper RX event. Now Abu Dhabi really looked a bit dull. After Saturday all was very open. I though about 5-10 points difference covered the first 12 drivers. So it could go still every way on Sunday. Also the ussual Spa weather (rain on saturday, sun on sunday) made it extra interesting to see how drivers/teams/cars could perform in the different conditions. Where Timo Scheider was strong on Saturday (maybe due to his rain experience) you could see he or his car wasn't strong enough in the dry. Great to see some guest entries with Ekstrom, Ide, Demoustier, Duval, Wiman. Awesome to see Timur win, finally he did not his ussual mistakes in the final and with the great Hyundai (which seemed to be the car to have this weekend, although Timmy showed that the 208 was fast in Q4). Bakkerud was maybe overall the most consistent driver all weekend, but you could see the Audi wasn't as quick as the Hyundai. Wiman showed why he became GRC champion in the past, mega weekend for him (but at the start of the final he was in the wrong position, still a drive from last to third) and I hope he will do more weekend this year. Shame that both he and Nittiss don't have a full time drive, because they would both be championship contenders with this car.

    9 new locations. My guess: - 3 more DR1 locations - 4 RX locations from 2018 - 2 RX locations from 2019 (2019 World RX DLC)

    Rallycross 2019

    So, the first weekend of World RX 2019 has passed, and pretty much I enjoyed it. Day 1 (friday) was quite calm, while day 2 (saturday) was a bit to exciting. Track I think the track is pretty good. If the track would be in the area of Hell, than everyone would loved it. So it is pretty much how you see it. Also quite some people were attending the event on Saturday. Though I not see anything rallycross potential yet. Not even a local 'top' driver rented a seat, so yeah. Yes, the track has its flaws, and that are the stupid orange curbs. The joker merge itself is good i think, the problem is that the finish line is there as well and therefore influence the race on two sides, (1) the joker tactics (its faster to take the normal lap in the last lap) and (2) can cause crashes when someone think its the last lap. If the finish line would be after the first hairpin, the crash of Bakkerud/Hansen would never happened. I think its fair that Bakkerud got a DQ from the event, though he pretty much couldn't do much about it to be confused about it (I think he had a lot of pressure with getting a programm together), and also a lot of others did. I think if they move the finish line to a different position, this problem will be solved. The **** curbs, that made Bennett role and made Nitiss fly and made some punctures, is a bigger concern. It created some spectacular images, but I think especially Nitiss had been made very unlucky with punctures and flying. He had great speed and possible could had been on the podium. Drivers Audi Szabo - made a good impression, i think his lack of experience resulted in being next to the podium. But he was the most consistent of the Audi drivers imo. Doran - improved with every session. At the right moment he was there and snathed a podium. Bakkerud - had a solid friday, and started well in Q3 as well till the incident. The speed is there i think, but I think the incident will hunt him the rest of the season and will not get the title. Ford Pal Try - One word 'legend' 😛 Baumanis - Imo he was to much aggresive and lacked respect. In the final he missed the first corner as Szabo, but he took completly advanytage of it. The new STARD MK8 Fiesta seems better than the OMSE version of last year. Still could give some suprises during the season. Hyundai Timerzyanov - Cas has speed. Just if I see him driving, i just question myself how he ever became european champion. Grönholm - Car has speed, Grönhol has speed. He had some luck on his side in the semi-final. Should had been more patient and tactical in the final. If he keeps this up, he can fight for the title. Nitiss - Unlucky weekend where he showed he had speed for sure to go for a podium. Hope he gets more weekends, but I understood he will just do three events. MINI Bennett - Not the weekend for him. Peugeot Timmy - Speed and title contender. Unfortunate Bakkerud crashed into him. Kevin - Solid, but it seemed he was full under pressure when Grönholm was behind him in the final. Hope the event gave him confidence. Renault Chicherit - A little bit of a quiet weekend. Was he actually there? Need to step up his game if he wants to fight for the title. Marklund - Team leader at the moment. Unlucky in the semis, although he maybe was partially to blame to push Nitiss on the curb. Difficult to judge. De Ridder - Needs time. Raymond - Despite some issues with the car, i think he could make some suprises during the year. SEAT Scheider - Impressive showing overall. unfortunate a technical issue prevented him from the podium. But he could be an outsider for the title if he and the team can find a bit more speed and can be consistent during the season. Skoda Baciuška - Best supercar rookie. Car was not as fast as the top guys. That could be be partially Rokas, but also part the Fabia. Unfortunate an technical issue prevented him to be able to fight for a final spot.

    Yes, it looks awesome in grey @tbtstt . Interesting they made it a right hand drive.
  8. Interesting, I had no issues whatsover with Racenet. I am also logged in with a RaceNet account, so Maybe that helps?
  9. I noticed to that the tunnel in MC not had lighting shaders. Has nothing to with contrast of the tv.

    Rally Monte Carlo general feelings..

    Ussually in MC they run a mix of tyres on the car. So f.e. Winter on left front and right rear and soft on right front and left rear. This option is so far not possible.
  11. You act like you are being forced to buy the DLC. But you are not. So far I hear great reactions how people enjoy the Monte Carlo stages in DR2.0. Its more challenging and better due to better physics. Still don't see the issue "you pay twice!!!". Every year the street of Monaco are also in the F1 game, so than people who buy every year F1 games than paid 7 times the content or something? Or that the same tracks from pCars 1 are in pCars 2, or that some stages from WRC 6 are also in WRC 7, etc etc. Also next to that, it is not that magically the stages of Monaco take place in America or New Zealand or Russia, or that the iconic stages of the Monte Carlo are upside down. Finally, you NOT need to buy it. If people are happy to pay for it, than let them pay for it. The Season 1 content plans were revealed before the release, so you could easily cancel your pre-order for the Deluxe before it and just buy the day-one edition and after just buy the DLC you want. Again, no one is forcing you.

    Yes, poorly words chosen by you. Paul has been part of DR2.0 project, till he left for other things. Don;t forget Paul also had been involved with other CM rally titles including DiRT 2, DiRT 3, DiRT Showdown, DiRT Rally and DiRT 4. All had mixed reviews, different gameplays and different receivement. All quite different and next to that showing it is not a one man show, but a team who is being behind a game.

    PROBLEMS AFTER THE PATCH

    Very simple, make a screenshot or video (which is very easy to make with the PS4) and post it in the bug topic.
  14. JorritVD

    Stiff competition on the horizon...

    I don’t see why people see it as competition. - both games try to increase the rally genre market. If more people enjoy rally it is good. CM can learn from WRC, but Kyloton can learn again from DiRT. I think it’s more a healthy competition, and people should not try to force a split. I’m ok if someone is reasonable and critical with good arguments, but bullying, bashing and things is just a poor way. - I can only understand if it is competition if you haven’t got any money and need to choose between one of the two games. - I don’t like WRC7 (maybe will give it a try again soon), but if WRC8 turns out pretty ok, I might buy it.

    Yep, some of that block smashing is good as well. It was kinda Gymkhana Sprint from DiRT 3 at Battersea. It combines fun and learning to control the car at the same time 🙂
