Why do you only have 1.8 million credits?

because I have almost every car in the game, with all of the upgrades. I've had all the staff upgrades for at least 9 months. so I have no more big expenses.

as a result, I've bought many of the recent DLC cars from the dealership (the ones I can get new with 0km on the odometer). this includes the 2019 RX cars, which are like 800K each after upgrades.

I also haven't played as much since the start of Season 3. even now, I'm playing 3-4 other games concurrently.

Since the Assistance Tab has a spambot right now, I port this here.
I just raced like hell in Hell to get the Achievement of winning a FIA RX Final, no assists, 100 AI.

And I did win:

But when the Results where shown, the overall event got a 3rd:

This is unbelieveably frustrating! How can this even happen, the event result IS EXACTLY the result of the final race! There is no conversion or anything needed.

Where did you qualify in the intermediate standings @SkyRex?

I am trying to remember for certain if the result shown for your qualifying race(s) are where you finished in the individual race or where you finished overall in that qualifying round. 

You might have won all four qualifying races, but if your times weren't that quick you won't have got that many points at the intermediate stage?

10th x3 and 11th in the 4th Qualifier.

But those points don't matter as long as you reach the final, right? That's the whole point of a final

Nope. That is not how rallycross works. Winning final does not guarantee you win the event since it's decided on points. And since the random times in qualifying are often severely mismatched and way faster than the AI drivers in your heat you often lose lots of points in qualifying even if you drive well for your level.

I usually win every heat but don't even qualify for semi-finals because the random times are 8-20 seconds faster than the AI drivers in my heat. Kinda made me stop bothering with offline rallycross

So I have a question: Why is it that I don't see a podium sequence when I come second or third in an event? It's always that 'car and team dismally lurking somewhere far away from the podium' sequence... 

Yes, unfortunately this is the case with the Dirt Rally 2.0 so that the drivers do not enjoy a second or third place .....
That's one of the things that Codemasters still have to change, but it won't change

Another Problem/Bug :

If you use the handbrake, it can happen that if you want to accelerate the car again, the speed drops to ZERO or your car only drives 2km / h even though you are going full throttle.
I have had this very often and it is particularly annoying in online events because you cannot start again.
This problem occurs on every route and in every car

As @HoksuHoo says, the scoring (and thus final placing) for a rallycross event is based on your results at the intermediate stage (after all four qualifying heats), semi final and final.

I can't remember if it was in the Gossip thread or posted elsewhere, but I recall a few people having to do it a couple of times to get the trophy to pop. 

Daft question, but have you definitely got all the assists (including external cameras) disabled?

So I did it again, finally got the last RX Trophy.

Turns out, when you use the 2018 cars, the AI qualifier times are much less fantastical than in the 2019. This time I won two of them and had 2nd & 3rd in the other two, leaving qualifier round with an overall lead. Also I used the cockpit view, with the actual wheel visible, not sure that made a difference.
But in any case, the description is wrong. The trophy is not about winning the final, but about winning the whole event.

EDIT: On the Trophy hunt today, I captured what is needed for the new secret trophy introduced with FLAT OUT.

in case anyone wants to see what the Argentina stages look like in real life. the in-game stages are Las Juntas and Valle de los Puentes, in that order and direction. too bad cm cut it in half, but hopefully in the next game we can do the whole thing.

it's a bit annoying that they keep cutting to the camera that looks at the interior of the car, but you can clearly see how good a job CM did recreating the stage. including how rough it is...

Crazy weird, that. I mean, how much work would it be to adapt the first-place podium animation to a second and third? An hour maybe? It seems small, but it's rather dispiriting to come second, and your reward is seeing your team hanging around the back of the event like they're some dudes who snuck in to get autographs and got rejected. I've never seen this omission in a racing game before, ever.

Unfortunately there are no such sections in Dirt  

And that's why I really like the Argentina Rally in WRC 8

what are you talking about?! the video i posted is of the exact roads DR2 uses, they laser scanned them. the in-game stages are Las Juntas and Valle de los puentes (in that order and direction). it's El Condor in real life of course. WRC 8 stages are imaginary: they took sections of several different Argentina stages and stuck them together, with invented sections too

all the WRC 8 stages are like this. it means they were able to put more landmarks and stuff on the stages, but all the DR2 ones are exact copies of real life roads. so there actually are "such sections" in Dirt. whereas in the WRC series there are not.

you can like the WRC series stages more if you want, but they aren't real.

Well come on, second place is just first loser. Who shows up to an asskicking contest?

What do you guys think about the new 2022 wrc regulations coming?

https://www.wrc.com/en/news/season-2020/wrc/what---s-behind-the-wrc---s-new-2022-regulations-/

 

seems the new cars are getting built much closer to the r5 cars.

less complex suspension, nomore liquidcooled breaks, nomore centre diff.

 

I do like it when the technical side is more regulated and the pure rallying skills decide who gets the results.

so no fords beeing left behind for example 😂

 

lets discuss! Really interessted in your opinions.

Rain on 7 out of the 10 stages in the weekly group b in scotland. It would be fine if you had added the posibility to "showers" to the track aswell but heavy rain on 70% of the stages are just stupid...

yeah, there seems to be an issue with the algorithm that picks stage conditions for Scotland. in the previous weekly event every stage except 1 was in the heavy rain (8 out of 9). it doesn't help that the only weather option at Dusk is rain, but still.

also, none of the 4 Weekly Bonus events since Scotland came out have had even one night stage.

For me, variety is much more important in the weekly and monthly events
In February there was a monthly R2 and in March too !!
R2 was also well represented at the weekly events.

There must now be more DLC events, more as events with basic content, and anyone who has not bought any DLC is out of luck!

My point!
I paid for the DLCs so I would like to use them in the events.
Or the number of events is increased and only filled with DLC.
Two more DLC events would do, one monthly and one weekly

 
The fact that it rains a lot in Scotland does not bother me and I also believe that it is very typical of Scotland

It does not bother you because you dont drive in cockpit view. Take a look here and see how the weather forecast looks for the upcoming week in perth and kinross https://www.metoffice.gov.uk/weather/forecast/gfj8cfqv3#?date=2020-04-01

If they could only add shower and light rain instead of heavy rain only. I mean its in the game so it should be possible but there must be some reason to why they didnt do it?

I don't know what you always have with your rain?
In dirt rally it is like in real life sometimes it rains a lot and sometimes there are lots of dry ones or it is changeable.

You have to take the weather as it is and you already get somtimes other weather in Scotland

The video just shows how beautiful the Scotland Rally is

It's just every time i read that sort of thing (and the rain complaints) it reeks of the thinking pattern "oh if there was no external cameras I'd be better than these external camera noobs" But the truth is - It would make no difference.

The truth is that anything else than internal camera is only wet surface. Its not about people being faster or not with internal/external, its about the rain being way overdone and limit the view too much. Thats my issue and not if people are faster or not with internal or external view.

Compared to what exactly? I mean perhaps it'd be nice if the rain IRL didn't obscure things as badly as it does but Reality doesn't give a stuff about what would be nice, as far as Dirt Rally 2.0's rain goes the main windshield seems ok to me, from both VR and non-VR perspective though there is certainly room for improvement to the sophistication of it's implementation, besides that the visibility through the side windows *maybe?* seems always fixed to a high speed effect but I'd be more interested in them restoring the puddle-pull effects from DiRT4 before focusing on that if possible.(and of course tarmac handling)

Yeah, I was surprised as well. I daresay awards change very little, but it would have been nice to have seen a game I consider to be very good receive some recognition. 

I hope DR2.0 appearing on PS Plus next month at least wins a few more fans over.

Being nominated is its own reward and a testament to the hard work and passion everybody at Codemasters put into creating and supporting the game. 🙂 

Let's not forget that hundreds of games are released by UK studios every year, and fewer than 10 were on the shortlist. Not even F1 2019 (which was in my opinion the best F1 game ever made) was on that.

I'm not surprised. Outer Wilds has that annoying Portland Oregon beanie wearing eco hipster craft beer kind of vibe. Found it really annoying, hence it's not a surprise that arts bureacrats saw fit to give it an award.

They would have seen DR2.0 as 'just another racing game' without any appreciation of what a watershed moment it truly is in playable simulations.

Edit: having noted PJ's comment above, perhaps it did get some decent recognition after all.
