DiRTy Gossip about DIRT Rally Games

The community manager ensures that a beautiful 3 wheeled car isn't made, not so much that timelines are met.
If I understand it right, they manage and filter the community's eroding mental health, statements made directly after a rage quit/beers, and unrealistic expectations...thus providing relevant data to the team. The product is already quite polished thanks to @justbiglee and the devs who love this game, so all should be good -lest the community flip out and a trolling exec runs off the deep end.

No three wheeled cars....unless Mr. Bean shows up crossing the stage like the deer/hare.  :)

Yup, I'm going to try and keep the information and the updates flowing but there is no way I can cover as much community ground as @justbiglee did. If there is something important that isn't getting attended to please let me know and I'll get it looked at but I simply won't have time to trawl through each post.

I thought it would be an easier life, all those tea breaks, going down to screwfix, getting a bacon butty from the van in the car park, more tea, pack up at 4 and be home by 4:30 with nothing to worry about until the next day.

Turns out it's really hard work!

I've only just noticed your signature, @justbiglee: isn't the F1 2015 community the most bitching??? ;)

Some cars I'd say have very accurate grip, others too much. All cars are pretty good grip wise on tarmac (Germany). Gravel and Monte needs more work mostly.

I´m reading the 128 league and I´cant wait to start it!
so, and excuse my ignorance:

1) When can you save progress?
2) when can you repair car?

If I understood correctly at the end of 16 stages? (1 complete event)

...shit... impreza is the only gr.A car I have not fully upgraded... :(


PS.: I just realized I can´t do the event. Theres no way I can do... no physical time. Even if I dont go to work xD.
Nope, not in 3 days... what a shame.

PS2: just reading MORE and better... 3 days to finish event #1. Now, I´m in!

Thinks it more a endurance type event with no car repairs.

Well, on the plus side, at least we know who to give grief about the Porsche license to now...

It's EA... "grief" is the norm for them :)
EA has always been Early Access for most games they produce, except they forget and move to next title.  Perhaps!  Lee can turn them around too, he is a BIG GUY, with a heavy foot, it seams.  
:wink:

@RodgerDavies
Perhaps we have a inside guy that could pull some political strings and get us Porsche at a good price

I'd prefer them to let Raceroom use it first, but the more the merrier.

Anyway, anyone care to interpret this, on the subject of the two cars in the Finland pack:

New cars will be in their own class and set up with v2.

Good luck for Lee, but he must be patient with the next EA releases (I suspect that some of them will be difficult *cof* Star *cof* Wars)
