Please have more online events with DLC cars and tracks. As it stands the vast majority of online events are base game content only. I don't mean every last one of them should be, players with base game only should still be able to play online events, but considering the massive amount of events there is certainly room to have more with DLC while still having at least some events that are open to everyone. Bonus events favor new DLC, that kinda makes sense, but the drawback is that any DLC that isn't new is out of favor. Group B RWD are basically nonexistent in online events. Group B RX has a few events when a new RX track releases but otherwise it's nonexistent. Kit cars appear now when kit cars have just released, but after a while they will be nonexistent unless the present system is changed. 2000cc ditto. DLC rallycross tracks appear in a few events when they are released, after that there are no events with them at all. And the fact that D+ events, which are only open to super deluxe players, do not use the DLC that is required to access them is utterly bizarre. I'm pretty sure you guys at Codemasters understand how nonsensical this is so just change it. Absolutely no one benefits from the current system, vanilla players are locked out of events and DLC players can't use their DLC. DR2.0 has a lot of great DLC cars and tracks, with more coming. So it is a huge shame that this DLC sees so little use in online events, it diminishes the value of the DLC when we can't play them online. Please change that
Hello, I know that questions concerning Dirt Rally are probably not on top of the priority list, considering that there are many, more prominent issues with respect to Dirt Rally 2.0, which need to be sorted out asap. Thus, I apologize that I have to bother you with my question, as it is not as topical as others. Before presenting my problem I need to stress that I am very familiar with the so called "regular" Racenet connection problems that became very frequent in the time preceding the launch of Dirt Rally 2.0. The problem that I am currently experiencing is different in its nature, cause every time an event that I am playing crashes due to Racenet connection problem, I am able to bring back the connection by restarting the game. Thus, it is not the case that the server were down, but for some reason Racenet kicks me out at a certain point of an event, for some unexplained reason. Here's my case. Last week I was playing a league event in Dirt Rally (PC - Steam / WRCGamersClub). The event had altogether 24 stages. After driving the first 12, I saved the game and decided to continue later. When I returned to the game to drive the last remaining stages, I confronted a technical issue, which prevented me from finishing the event. The game allowed me to drive stages from the 'save game point' onwards (stages 13 & 14) until I arrived to the beginning of stage (15), after which the next service/save game point was scheduled. This is what happened: I finished stage 14, the scoreboard showed me the results, and when I proceeded forwards, the game began to load the next stage. When the stage was loaded, I hit the "continue" button, after which normally the view goes to the starting line of the stage, where one can see the car approaching the start line (and then the stage begins). In my case, when the view was supposed to change to the stage, instead the screen went black and the game began loading (with the rolling doughnut on the screen with the text "loading"). After approximately 5 seconds the game said that it could not connect to Racenet, and the game returned me to the main menu (Career, leagues, etc.). When I tried to access leagues or online events, the game said that there was no connection to Racenet. I had to shut down the game and restart. When I got back to the game and accessed my league event, the stage times that I had just driven had vanished and I had to start again from the save game point (beginning of stage 13). I tried several times to get passed this, but every time between stages 14/15 the same issue happened and the game lost connection to Racenet. After every failure I had to restart the game, in order to access Racenet. Connection did not return, if I stayed on the game. I even tried continuing the league event on different days and times, but every single time the same happened. I thought that maybe it was a glitch on my game in this particular event, which didn't allow me to continue the league event and finish it. All the other players in the league event both on PS4 and PC were able to finish the event. Last night I was trying to play a daily challenge in Dirt Rally (Mk2 Monday - Järvenkylä). I was able to access the page with the stage info, but when I pressed the "start stage" button, instead of moving the view to the start line of the stage, the screen went black and the game began loading followed by the info box that said "could not connect to Racenet" - i.e. the same situation I had earlier with the league event. After shutting down the game and restarting, I went to the challenges section and the game showed that I had already done the Mk2 Monday - Järvenkylä challenge, although I had not driven a single meter, or even attended the starting area. I have run "file integrity check" on Steam and everything should be in order in this respect. I wonder, if I could get some help with this problem, as it is very frustrating, especially in long league events, when this happens in the middle of the event. I was asking in the Dirt Rally Facebook groups whether others have confronted a similar problem, but this was new to everyone. Is there a technical/bug list on Dirt Rally, where I could report this problem, so that maybe Codemasters could look into this (if they have a dedicated technical team for Dirt Rally, cause I assume most of the Codie people are currently working on Dirt Rally 2.0)?
