    Let's talk hardcore damage

    I'd like to preface this by saying that I love what codemasters is doing with the post-launch content and updates in Dirt Rally 2, especially updates regarding rainy weather. I'm hoping that this rant would help in getting my issues with hardcore damage mode fixed in future updates just like the rain was. When I heard that Dirt Rally 2 would feature a hardcore damage mode, I imagined Richard Burns Rally 2.0. When I'm playing RBR, I'm constantly afraid of crashing my car, because the damage model is absolutely brutal. Enter a corner too fast and understeer into a bush: you get a broken radiator, which will then destroy your engine within a few stages. Crash into a tree and you will most likely break the engine, forcing a retirement. If you slide and crash into a ditch or barrier, your wheels can break down. They can lose drive shafts or suffer from broken suspension. Wheels can even turn sideways or break off completely. These are relatively tame crashes. If you roll your car, you will not only lose heaps of time, but you'll also have to pray that you don't roll into anything solid and you keep a functional car. Now in Dirt Rally 1 and 2, I'm completely fine with the standard damage model, seeing as most couch rally drivers want near-invincible rally cars. My gripe is with the hardcore damage option, which really just feels like turning the damage setting from "Easy" to "Normal". I am never afraid of crashing my car in this game. It doesn't really matter if I hit a rock, a tree or a barrier - the car will rarely suffer damage that hurts me in the long run. Crashing feels more like a minor inconvinience than a rally-ending disaster. The worst that can happen is a tyre blowout, a double tyre blowout, penalty for resetting/hitting a spectator or broken headlights, which all just add time penalties or force you to drive slowly. Keeping your car safe from excess damage is an integral part in rallying, You can often see drivers slowing down for big jumps because they know their suspension can't handle the landing if they do it flat. And if they crash their car, they'll rarely get away with just a couple seconds added to their time. TL;DR: I want Dirt Rally 2 to be the Dark Souls of racing games, please let me adjust my experience to my liking. PS: I would love an option to enable hardcore damage in weekly/monthly My Team challenges, they're a significant part of My Team mode!
