    GRID - Mode/Feature/Content Suggestions

    There are a few things I would like to see: Lose the pivot movement of the cars. It doesn't come off as natural at all Create a proper TV-style camera replay system Add a photo mode Bring back TOCA or bring TCR in its full glory Bring back the games that were packed with content The last one may come off strange but how about making a game you actually would buy yourselves! That couldn't get you to sleep because of excitement! Bring back Codies to its former glory! I'll keep an eye on GRID and how it develops over the coming months. I am however not filled with a lot of confidence anymore.....makes me sad in a way because I used to pick up every Codies title right from the start.

    WRC 8 Livestream

    With all the content in the base version of the game this is pretty much a no-brainer for offroad racing pleasure

    Hmm I don't see it at all like that. In WRC8 you get a lot more rally than you get in DR2. DR2 is incredibly barebones compared to WRC8. Okay DR2 maybe more hardcore but that doesn't make it a better game. Certainly not when you see the general impressions around the web. Kylotonn has stepped up their game and it looks very very promising. The stream confirmed the game is developped from a wheel-point-of-view and than adapted to controller. This time around they want to go further into simdirection. All positive as far as I can see and lets be honest, those stages shown during the stream just show how good Kylotonn is at the stage design. Very impressive and challenging. With the livestream shown and with a game packed with content from the start (JWRC, WRC2 Pro, WRC2 Private, WRC, Historics) this is a serious contender and it definitely gave me some thought of just completely skipping DR2 alltogether.

    In the defense of Christina. She is in the foreground to "manage" the community and SM, while on the other side being restricted by upperhand to what can or can't be shared. It is not her fault but it is normal she takes all the heat because it is the first person one can communicate with. I think it can be a very frustrating place to be in if things don't go like it should but it is her job and she is handling accordingly to it. I have no anger against the people who are actually working on the game and putting their guts and efforts in it. I am more angry with management and upperhand decision who thought it was a great idea to milk their customers and release a bugridden, barebones game and leave many things completely unclear. That is a choice that has been made from upperhand and not by the people who we are communicating directly with.

    Remove Always Online for the Career!

    I think the poll has spoken. The right thing to do is to remove it. Also seen réactions throughout the internet 😉

    With all the critics I have atm I sincerely hope all issues will bé resolved and the game will be in a state it deserves to be. All critics are well deserved and it is to Codies to react. I can see an excellent game beneath it. Please balance it out and make it shine in all departements.

    Well well another little unmentioned surprise.... On disc or downloaded content behind a required connection. Great! The career simply should be accessible without a connection. It is called my team, so let it be my team and not partially managed by others!

    I am with then since day 1. I played through the career with the Vanilla version (pad). Wheel support has been hugely improved and physics have been improved as well. Currently it is a completely other game than at launch at their passion shows. I don't know about those ultrawide multimonitors, so can't answer on that. Give it a retry and maybe you'll be surprised by its progression 😉

    Thank you for this down to earth response! About the DLC: I have no problem with old tracks making a return to DIRT RALLY 2.0 but the problem I have that it is almost all old content they resell. If old content was sold and 1 or 2 additional longstages were included, I wouldn't feel like I am feeling right now. All you get in the first season are 2 new cars. Then for the second season general thought is some WRX content but if it sells well enough there should be a season 3 and 4 which probably will again be OLD content (Wales, Finland and probably Greece). Latter speculation on my side. This is a pattern I simply don't appreciate at all from their side. Where is the NEW stuff? How about expanding the additional locations? How about really fixing the handling issues the game has been plagued with for a long time? They have so much expertise in house but only the DIRT game doesn't get it right. You simply ask: How on earth is this possible? Also the whole pivot-thing is bugging the hell out of me. The F1 game got it solved with the EGO engine so why the DIRT game can't? Then we have the pricing. It is steep for what you get. The game would be much better placed at a €39,99 instead of a €49,99. It is for example what AC (original) did on release and that game had more content to begin with than Dirt Rally 2.0. All in all this development has left a very bad taste in my mouth and I simply don't want to support that kind of practices. Once again, I would have been very happy if the old content was released with additional stages. I would have actually added value for money. Situation now just feels like a cashgrab for early deluxe version owners. If bought digital €89. Just let us think about that...€89 euros! Another example: Take "Indy" developer Bigmoon Entertainment. They have released Dakar '18 as their first racing title. A small studio with passionate people which we probably find as well at Codies. However this little portugese studio has had an amazing postlaunch support, has recently released free DLC with 8 additional stages which take around 30 to 60 minutes to complete each. The base game is already huge to begin with 14 stages which take also 30 to 60 minutes to complete. Makes you wonder why a well known studio like Codemasters has such a customer unfriendly approach which looks more and more like EA practices. Please Codies, I don't ask you to give stuff away for free but come on, don't take your customers for plain stupid.

    Rant incoming..... What I find even worse is that recycled content sold for a full price seasonpass. I got pretty bitter after the reveal to be taken for an absolute fool by this DLC policy. I know all the 'don't want , don't buy' phrase so don't sort that one. The game is being sold for a ridiculous price, seen the base content and the hugely expensive addon for recycled stuff. The game may be fun and great to play but it doesn't take away the huge lack of base content. 12 unique stages, that is 2 per country. But oh no wait, we add 3 rallies from previous game for which you have to pay once more! Simply to get rally content up to a respectable amount. I don't appreciate it and I don't want to support this kind of policy. I know the hard work many of the employees have put in but the way this is managed from upperhand is far from correct. I call them EA practices! As much as I want that DS21, I'll sitt this one out until there is a big sale! Shouldn't be too long seen how it went with OnRush... Then to remember I had the Deluxe version on pre-order. I vote with my wallet and it will stay closed firmly. Would also be nice to read some more objective posts here. Many are hyping this game without seriously looking to the fundamental problems at hand (content, pivot, tarmac, old engine, DLC policy, leagues etc). Same pattern was seen for D4 and we all know how that went..... Rant over ...

    I must say that I like the presentation a lot. Looks very polished, so great work there 👍

    Is there any info on Your Stage? Is this tool still being developped for D5? I got back to D4 and it is actually better then I remembered. It needs more variation and tiles and maybe some locations. Is YS completely abandonned or is it still alive and further than D4 version? I hope @ChristinaMc or @urgaffel can share some info?

    When I think that so many in here would want the old tracks back, it would have been easier for Codies to improve on the original Dirt and launch an expansion with additional physics improvements. As said , they can bring back the old 'updated' stages but I wouldn't pay a lot extra for that. If the stages are brand new than it changes things. Reason I cancelled my preorder. I will get DR2 but I first want to see all DLC's content. If there are no new rallies and thé second Season is rallycross, I'll pick up DLC rally for a heavy reduced price a couple of months later. However, if there will be a lot of rally content which is fresh, I'll more likely pick it up sooner. Sorry DS21, you'll have to wait. For now the game is really shallow on rally content which was one of the big critics of DR1 and there is zero improvement on that in the base game.

    I see it more like 'old' content moved behind a paywall. I still like they come back but not in the way of payed DLC only. New stuff should be in there also.

    One thing I sincerely hope is that the DLC isn't only recycled content.
