Open for everybody, so everybody who feels like participating can do so, no matter how active you are in the forum, and you will not be kicked if you might be inactive for some weeks (As long as you're not cheating of course). If you have ambitions for winning regular participation might be helpful though. On to the rules:

  • Every DRC-Season will consist of all Rally locations, including DLC.
  • One Season has to be completed with the same car!
  • Every event (rally) will last for 3 days and 12 hours. (Making two events fill exactly one week)
  • Each Rally will consist of 7 Stages
  • The first 6 Stages will only consist of the 4 long stages (2 will be repeated).
  • SS1 ,SS4 and SS7 will have Service Parks.
  • SS 7 will be a short stage.
  • Restarts are disabled, Alt-F4-ing is prohibited and will be punished if discovered.


Having a Service Park 3 stages apart highly encourages less risky driving (as real world), as you have to cover 30-40km of stage between services.

The Reward for a Championship is as follows:

1st: Is eligible to pick the Vehicle Class for the next Season.

2nd: Can pick one of five Season Structures from this Overview:

3rd: Can select which Rally needs to be excluded next season. Only 12 can be put into a championship, but 13 are in game.

4th: May pick the Safari-Rally (Service Park structure of 2/5.  Five stages to be conquered in one go)

5th: May forecast the Weather-Rally (Pick one location and cherry-pick the weather options to your liking. Night has to be less than 50% though)

The DiRT Legendary Trophy
https://www.dirtgame.com/leagues/league/34459/drc---legendary

The DiRT Legendary Trophy, powered by the DRC. It is a seperate competition and fully independent from the DRC standings. It consists of 24 stages with over 270km of road and covers all countries available. It only has 2 Service Parks  , one after the first quarter and one at the half way-point (after 12 stages). Saving your car and driving more catiously is the key here. "To finish first, you first have to finish" is what you shall have in mind. Car choice is completely free for everone here. 
Everybody, who finished the Legendary Trophy (read as: Not retired) is allowed to wear one of these Badges in their signature:

Anybody seen with such a badge, who didn't earn it will be kicked from this league without further notice!

Great news from the roadbook everybody ! If everything goes acording to CM's plan we can launch the first DRC-Season on Tuesday.
Especially nice is the 'Checkpoint' feature as a step-back-point for unexpected exits. That means I will only set the very first stage up to be a checkpoint, So if any Alt-F4-ing is happening they have to start the whole event again. 

Anybody else have a wish for car class to start with? If nothing else is said against it I will set up the first season for the early 2000's, so get comfortable with either the Subaru '01 or the Focus '01 .

Cheers

I'm currently in the process of setting up the Subaru to  my liking for Tramac/Gravel/snow, for the start of the first DRC Season. And I just found a very nice tarmac setup that feels very nice grippy and planted on the road. To my own surprise I managed to get a time which was a little less than 3 sec behind Porkhammer and Nr. 21 on the World Leaderboard :) Actually I'm the second fastest Subaru on that track now (behind Porkhammer; Nr1 is obviously cheated...)

Another thing: First position in a championship can only claim victory if he/she has a forum account and can post here, Otherwise the second place will choose the next car class (and so on...). So for everybody where the names doesn't allign with their forum name it might be nice if you would post your ingame name here.

P.S. Do you want to have the locations in the same order every season or do you prefer random order? I will setup the first season roughly like the WRC-calendar: Monte Carlo, Sweden, Greece, Finland, Germany , Wales

Yeah why? The first position (That chinese guy) is really a cheated time, it's nearly 1 min infront of the second place in the leaderboard. 
Or did you refer to something else? I havn't got it yet...

EDIT: Don't worry, I'm not that fast evrytime, only if I nail a run without too many mistakes. And I'm still doing way to many mistakes overall, so no need to be afraid I'd dominate like porkhammer does in the other leage ;)

So the League fix is live, and as soon as the website is online again I can setup the first season in the evening. Starting point will then be 00:00 Wednesday for Rally Monte Carlo. 
Enjoy the first DRC-Season during the next three weeks:)

Just finished the Monte. 

I have to say, I loved the event setup for this one, with the realistic service park placements and the second run through some of the stages. It was great having the longer stages then the short power stage at the end. 

Anyways, my event went pretty well I think.
I was quite cautious throughout, but set decent times. Though I did damage my radiator on SS2 due to a lockup into one of the bridge walls, which then eventually damaged my engine before the first service. Quite a bit of time was lost there, and I did have one or two heart-in-mouth moments on the snowy stage.

Thank you very much for creating the DRC!

Here's my finishing time:

Dang, you got me by 5 minutes!  

Although i really shouldn't be that surprised, i had some really bad stages, at least two long ones with no rear tyre, one of those stages with no rear tyres at all :(  Oh and some stupid 15 second spectators.  It amazes me sometimes how i end up going off in places where i didn't even know there were spectators as i've never been off there before, nor even come close to doing so.  I'm just *that* bad :D

First place on stage one, and then game crashed and all over the first stage with 0.4 sec slower time, but still 1st. And then on the second stage hited a snowbank and my car stucked on top of it... Unrecoverabke car! The fuck!? I understand if i drive straight down the hill but this! :D well better luck next time

Argh, was really looking forward to this. First two stages going fairly well, then somehow the game crashed uploading my time for the second stage... back to square one. That's never happened before. I then promptly managed to go straight off a corner and retire on the first stage. Guess that's me done! Better luck everyone else ;)

I took the steady approach, promptly losing more than 30 seconds in the first stage. The next 5 stages went much better, losing about 10 seconds per stage.

Before SS7, I decided to risk nothing. Started and got... no puncture, but a phone call. Paused the game, took the call, then went on. Of course I had lost my rhythm completely, hit something and got... yes, a puncture this time. Drove very carefully to save the tire. It blew shortly before the end and I finished the stage on the rim. To my complete surprise, I only lost about 11 seconds in the stage.

All in all, not too bad.

Whoah... I'm surprised by myself :) It went very smooth overall, only made one major mistake: In the slippery snow on stage two I ran over a spectator and got a 15 sec penalty. Apart from that it was very nice. It seems I can find a better rythm with a sequential shifter than an H-shifter car like the quattro in the other league earlier today. Or maybe the subaru just drives a lot better than a group b car. 

I'm actually leading the event right now :) ...at least until CrazyNevada finishes and beats me by 30 sec or so :smiley:

Can someone help me verify something?  I setup the league to have career engineers enabled. But on the league site it has a red dot (disabled). Although, if I go into create league and copy the active one it has set the box on enabled in the edit screen. 
That means there is at least a bug in the displaying of the enabling on dirtgame.com. 
I'm actually not sure if they are actually enabled now or not. During my run the engineers felt quite good (I have all highest engineers) but I'm not sure how strong default engineers in leagues would be since that feture was just introduced. Does anybody have sen any significant dicrepance between the capabilities of their career engineers and the ones in the league? Are career engineers active or not?

EDIT: I've seen your discussion @KevM that you believe Porkhammer cheats and therefor everything above cheats too, a while back. Please don't start this topic again, at least not in this thread. I'm not as fast as Porkhammer, but I can get close to his times if I drive clean runs and have a nice working car setup. Also seeing his youtube videos gives me no reason to assume it wouldn't be legit. Anyways: For this league, if you have any doubts of the legitimity of a time please say so here, but don't acuse anybody on cheating without proof. If you doubt on any time, we (the whole community) can try to match the time with same car, track and setup, in time trial mode to see if it's possible. If several others can get close to the time it will be assumed to be legit. (The alternative would be to assume a lot of people use the same cheating technique independently of each other, even recording videos, which seems very unlikely)

Well, gave it a go.  
Was 2nd overall til we got to the night stage, 20+ odd seconds behind SkyRex.  

Running Ultra-low shaders since I changed my monitor to 1080p, but this blacks out most of the roadside detail on night runs, so bumped it up to low & started.  I got a stuttery laggy mess and clipped a front right on the 3rd corner, paused, Ultra-Low'd it again to get control back.. Continued on 3 til tyre came off and retired.

I like the format of this league with long stages and less service areas. Another thing I love is Group B with 2wd and 4wd together while 2000s are split in early and late wrc.
I hope to do better next time, I had a few problems.
