    In my opinion gravel is a sub par game, it feels like a game from last generation with average graphics, physics don't quite hit the arcade sweet spot, bugs, ai that all take the exact same line, and the whole gravel tv is half baked and annoying.  But you should still buy it for the online, it has king of the hill and capture the flag which is great fun

    Basically the game would need more weather variation to make tyre choice interesting which is a tough ask to develop (not impossible as pcars 2 has shown), and it would need to not give you all the information about the weather so that some people get it wrong which would make some people angry. Definitely not as simple as just giving tyre choice (which the wrc series does but you basically just pick soft on short stages and hards on epic stages which is not interesting at all)

    Ouch. But yeah fair call. That's why I'm excited about potential DiRT 4 esports, it has "different" stages every time that mean you can't memorise them before hand. (I know some people will still complain about tiles but it is a step in the right direction) And to your second point you can also have custom liveries that don't break online anymore so that would be cool I'll be watching with interest for any more news from codies.

    So lets get gossiping then  ;) "Competitive thing" sounds like esports. But there is an embargo. So I'm putting two and two together and saying after the bad reception of dirt 4 the parties involved in the "agreements to be signed" are having doubts about it and there are difficult discussions around weather to even go ahead with it or what changes need to be made. Now the patch itself "if all goes well that'll be here in a couple of weeks" seems to be the line we've heard for the last couple months so in all likely hood won't be here for another couple of months especially considering they are still at the point they can't talk about the update and it takes some time to go through approval for consoles. Now if we look at things we have given feedback on "whether or not we can realistically bring it to this project is the question" is the nice way of saying it's too much work so we won't bring those to this project especially when you read "I'm sorry this isn't the news you're all hoping for" which says to me "decisions made by the people who make the big bucks and allocate where the big bucks go internally" is to ditch dirt 4 as soon as possible and make a different game which they can sell and get money from. I just realised analysis of every sentence (and taking quotes out of context) like I've just done is likely kinda the reason codies don't like sharing information until they're 100% with what they're doing but wild speculation is fun so I'm going to post it anyway (just don't expect my wild speculation to be accurate)

    I don't think costs are that high. Licensing will be all related to wrc rather than individual car brands (I assume), the dev team isn't huge, and clearly they aren't paying enough for publishing because it is a shambles with the frustrating staggered release (clearly I'm salty I can't play it yet). I've enjoyed wrc6. Clearly it's not perfect but it doesn't have to be perfect to be fun so I'm one of those people confident enough to get wrc7. If your a fan of the wrc, and not really into sim racing, then wrc7 seems to be a good choice. Post launch support will likely be s*** tbh. It was not great for the previous two.

    Yup exactly this. And they did the same with wrc6 taking from wrc5 so some of us would have been playing these stages for 3 years  :/ Also kylotonn are rather small (approx 80 employees vs codemesters approx 400) which goes some way to explaining why they have focused only on one thing, the stages, and haven't really improved the sound

    The brake is a pace note telling you to prepare for a tight corner (so scripted not reacting to your driving). It is also in previous wrc titles.  Glad to hear clubs is coming soon

    That does sound epic, and mysterious. So it is the full mayhem of lots of cars on track at the same time I assume.
