    So the clubs patch is finally here, half a year after release. Can't say I'm not a bit dissapointed by the lack of additional tweaks to the game, so I am probably not even going to install it again, maybe if leagues really get going and the car classes that don't feel super weird are preferred by people. Pretty much the only item on the "fixes" list that I am interested in is this: -Tuning setups can now be used with lower skill rated teams How does that translate to the skill of your own engineer? Is he going to refuse to set up my car in a hissy fit because I came in second against someone faster than me online? And how is that going to work in leagues? EDIT: oh I forgot to ask, is there still no workshop support for setups? To say something positive, I just looked around the features offered in Leagues and apparently you can restrict palyers to interior cameras, if this really works this is a great plus, I just hope it is not like in MP lobbies/pro tour, where the setting doesn't make a difference.

    Funny and sad at the same time, followed by a barrage of posts about another game.

    I would call that interpretation realistic instead of pessimistic. The radio silence is absolutely telling, and the minimal statements we have gotten so far are classic PR speak to maintain plausible deniability. I would love to be wrong, but I don't have high hopes.

    Fair enough, I must have missed that part then.

    An exclusive license deal with Polyphony perhaps? Be interesting to see what makes it into GT Sport. Somehow I don't believe that, though they are Japanese, so it could be true. Think Forza 6 and H3 had to skip on VW altogether for some reason. Real shame, and it's weird that they won't license out the street cars. Even AC has a few. I always liked the MR2, but I don't want to buy an Xbone just for Forza when my wheel won't work with it. Really hope they manage to make the Win10 version actually work. Figures. And it's the worst possible outcome. Selling the pre-order bonus is always bullshit. Not sure what you paid for your copy and can't remember what the pre-order price was, but the 2 packs only cost $5 total, not exactly braking the bank, and if  you didn't pay the retail price anyhow, possibly you are still getting the base+DLC for less than the initial pre-order.  Not trying to argue at all, I know DLC is somehow taboo around here, but I don't think its that big of a deal.   Maybe he is coming from a different perspective, maybe he is mad because he wanted the pre-order car, so he bought the game in advnace without waiting for reviews, and is now left disappointed. Would CM have told us that the car will be there as DLC after release he may have ended up not buying the game, but if he liked it he might not mind paying a little extra to get the car. Preorder just seemed to be a way to secure sales then, if the DLC is available for everyone now, without properly communicating that prior to release. I'm sure I can find the direct quote from @kickup somewhere in the gossip, but paraphrasingly he said "because of the suits, preorder was the only way to get the car into the game"

    I have struggled with this aswell, if there is a way to save more than 4 setups per car, I have not found it. I had 4 setups done for a car for asphalt/gravel, when I then switched to sweden I could not create a new setup, no matter what I did, had to delete one of the other 4. I know it is supposed to be 4 setups per car per surface, but so far I have not found a way to do it.

    @BrySkye Well I did say procedurally generated, that does not necessarily mean random, it just means that it gets computed "live", and the whole map does not need to be pre-loaded, you could create real life stages like this, although that would present a unique challenge for the development of every single stage. In contrast to that if you look at the possibility of having randomly generated stages, I think with today's possibilities you could  create a much more life-like environment. One "simple" way I could think of is having certain set-pieces as landmarks and then have them connected by generated roads. So IF we get procedural generation in a modern rally game, there needs to be found a balance, or rather made a decision which way to go, both will give us the longest rally game to that date, and none of our bodies will ever be too short again.

    @gfRally very true, I saw that side of the medal aswell, agree with everything 100% (and if I have to endure a Dakar game for procedurally generated rally stages so be it)

    Well my guess of course is as good as anyone's, but I believe that there will be more hand-holding, more assists&aids and more guidance throughout a improved career mode, maybe even a rally-school. Right now playing DRally means getting thrown onto a stage in a car, and you have to figure out the rest for yourself (more or less), so from a game-design perspective, that is less than ideal. Game designers (or at least the ones that aim for commercial success) want to appeal to as many people as possible, but that doesn't help rally enthusiasts in the slightest. I think that everyone who hoped for more hardcore stuff will get a bit disappointed by the next game. I was mentally ready for no DLC, at least I thought I was, but after reading the article myself I feel that CM have taken 2 steps forward with DRally, and now they'll take one step back (exhibit A: rally enthusiasts are not exactly crazy about RX and PP additions, which were not pre-planned like most of early access). This might all sound very pessimistic, but I am more than happy with what I got out of DRally, I am just not as excited for the future anymore.

    What's up with Leagues? We're looking at potential new functionality, but obviously very keen to fix anything that's broken. No, please someone wake me up form this bad dream. As people have poninted out above already, since the introduction of new settings for leagues in 1.0 we have no longer the ability to allow tuning/career engineers in leagues, which is game breaking. @warpengage: Sorry to doubt you, now my hope is that his statement does indeed not include the league bugs (;

    quite the statement without any sources.

    I remember him saying that they had reached their target prior to release even, so management has to be at least satisfied. I'm just wondering exactly how well it did. I don't think that we got a game budget number, much less where it stands compared to sales.
