    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.
  4. Interesting, I had no issues whatsover with Racenet. I am also logged in with a RaceNet account, so Maybe that helps?
  5. 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.
  7. 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.

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

    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 🙂

    I think overall the My Team is a bit better and easier than D4 + Car not automatically is good again after finishing an event. Really need to repair it. + Can develop the car, although this is a bit debatable how realistic this is (but its more of the direction of F1 series, which i think is good development) + Good you not need to constantly renew contracts. + Good you can invest in your crew. - Not need to pay salaries (but this has probably to due, that the career and online events are mixed, and not really are seasons) - No sponsor budgets - Not can choose an other person for engineer or something. I think the base is better, but can get more depth. F.e. missing salaries, entry fees, sponsor budgets, etc. Livery editor would be great, but as semi-pro graphics artist, I think it was very limited in D4. It should have a bit more depth. Don't forget that liveries of teams also being influenced by the sponsors/partners. So to make it more realistic in career, all the cars should have sponsor liveries of all sponsors which are in the game, or kinda preset. So if you choose Castrol as main sponsor, you car will be green/black/white. Although maybe still can choose from a few different patterns and can choose the order of the three colors.

    Rallycross 2019

    I have the feeling the models (the Megane than) could be from DR2.0 https://www.instagram.com/p/BvT0OT0oQ-P/?utm_source=ig_web_copy_link

    This could be a nice DLC 3d RX Supercar model:

    Also want DirtFish back. They could make the area a little bigger, add the Rallyschool from D4, and (as I mentioned before) add the party modes (Invasion, Outbreak, Transporter) from DIRT 3 in it and you have something fun next to the serious stuff. Maybe these fun games are not 'real', but it is a different way to learn and understand the cars and also a good way of training yourself.

    DiRT Rally 2.0 Road Book - 20/03/19

    Ok, you clearly not understand a thing from games, also because its your first post. The 10gb is for the new locations and cars that are coming. Go cry somewhere else, booohoooo. For all you other phucking whiners, CM is busy with updating. Things take time. No point of constantly tagging CM employees in the text. They are watching these forums. Christina has been a week off, and now she is back and has replied to multiple things. CM never confirmed they will update EVERYTHING. So if something is not in the list, it is NOT updated.

    Rallycross 2019

    The EKS S1 cars might not have any updates during the off season, the Hansen Peugeots seem to be an older spec (2017). if the Pug are 2018 spec, they probably also had no updates. On the other side the i20, Renaults, Ibiza, Fiesta, Mini cars did have updates during the off season. So the field should be closer imo.

    Thanks Christina 🙂 Probably will see it tomorrow, but does the patch only include fixes, or also added new gameplay stuff and options?
  19. JorritVD

    Game update tomorrow

    all cars playable. Except for the DLC ofcourse, you need to own that before you can play it in free mode aswell

    You think Codemasters wouldn't tell us when they would already know? next to that, for one system (xbox) it takes more time to get an patch aproved than an other (ps4). Even CM don't know how long it will take before patch is aprroved and goes live. Usually the first platform is Steam, than 1-2 days later Sony, and up to a week at Microsoft.

    Dirt 2.0 - Paid DLC download size

    The DLC is ussually with most games integraded in the game so you are able to compete against it. Only thing is you can't choose it to race with it. So yes, the DLC in the store is just a key to unlock it and maybe just a few kb. The game therefore also not really need to do something extras. At the start of the game it just checks if the keys for the DLC are there or not.

    Ideas for DiRT Rally 2.0 Season 2 DLC RX Content

    About the (likely) RX season 2 DLC It has been confirmed Group B RX cars will come. How many and which are unknown. It would be a suprise for me (and a little bit dissapoiting) though if these will be the exact same 4 models from D4, as most classes in DR2 got a new model (if in base install or with DLC). Oliver Bennett had kinda confirmed the MINI will come to DR2.0 around the summer. ARX had quite some attention towards DR2.0, so a possible ARX DLC could be possible (with Focus RS and Beetle joining) Season 1 DLC brought back some former DR1/D4 cars, so maybe that is also the case of the RX machines (f.e. DS3, Polo - Marklund version, Focus RS and Ibiza) It's likely the tracks will be the remaining tracks of the 2018 WRX schedule. An other option, but highely unlikely imo atm (especially the season haven't started yet), is a 2019 WRX DLC it is a lot of guessing at the moment with only knowing the MINI anc Group B RX statements.
