DiRT Rally 2.0 World Series

Recommended Posts

just double the time taken from doing the cut as penalty or something similar. if you watch mickeys run which got him qualified without that field cut he wouldnt of won the event. people were under a second behind him. the cut saved over that. it was just driving across a whole field. it was a great drive but just imagine one of those that were in that position didnt cut that part and now have to try and qualify. they might not even get in.

true, but leaving a road and going around natural or artificial obstacles go get a gain is prohibited by general rule.

If I'm not mistaken that refers to the final. PJ made a statement on cuts during qualification rounds and defined 'cheating'. If you find a shortcut and It's within the reset boundaries of the game it's legit. It was bad at Kopina because Poland in general as a location with its characteristics invites to cut a lot. Coming rounds should be much better. 

 

That's a bloody joke from Codies.

And again, you ignore the fact that there is no clear rule - no clear way to decide one line is fair and one line isn't without forcing 4 wheels on the track at all times. Which just isn't rally at all. You come down to random employee discretion which is about the worst way you could run anything.

In fact there is a rule that we ignore in rally which is:
 
66.3 BANNED TESTING
For Manufacturers registered in the WRC Championship, testing (as defined in Art. 2.23) is banned:
66.3.1 In the country of any World Rally Championship round from the start of reconnaissance until the end of the rally.
66.3.2 On any road which is used as a special stage of any current Championship rally.
 
———————-
 
So how many times WC competitors test the stage before the entry?
 
once this rule is ignored and the players are able to test the stages before the event, then what we are expecting? A fair racing or even a rally racing? I don’t think so... so yeah you are right the rally rules will never rescue us in this situation.

the fact that single rule cannot be satisfied because of game general limitation, doesn't mean we shouldn't apply other ones.

Just got word on a few things people were asking about:

 

  • The Leaderboards you see in-game are platform-specific.
  • Stage Degradation is set to Optimal.
  • You only get one M2 throughout the Qualifiers, so don't sell the one you earn 😉 

Stage degradation in qualifiers is full not optimal like we see in poland and argentina am I wrong guys? I am so confused right now #|

And if anyone wondered, Oculus users are still locked out of the World Series.  No M2 for us.

Hopefully we'll be able to get it another way, if we ever get the dlc 🤦‍♂️

What a mess ... it is crazy really. Still we did not get any information regarding how is it possible some Oculus users have the DLCs and all the others not ? 
@PJTierney please man answer this .. we have the right to know why and what we have to do to be like the others

As I mentioned multiple times already, when everything's locked down we'll say more.

Until then there are no updates, sorry.

Tagging me in every post won't make the process go any faster as it's already something being discussed.

Ok I got that man, but why they have it ? What happened ? At least explain us how is this possible.
Give us some information about this please man. I am sorry I am bothering you I really do man but you have to put yourself in our shoes and try to understand our frustration. This is especially worsen by the fact that we know some users with very same version we have got the DLCs. It adds to the frustration, to the misunderstandings and to confusion.

Why you disagree @MacNitro ? What is wrong exactly in asking to know the reason why some Oculus users have something the others (that paid the same price) have not ?

Piracy or hacking I assume?

Because the obvious answer is a software bug that rolled out inadvertantly and Codemasters decided to honor the few sales that did happen. They won't comment on it (like they refuse to comment on a lot of stuff) until they have full sign off from all parties involved and the marketing team. Read any of PJ's comments and they all basically say "we cannont confirm any of this or promise it in the future (but we aren't denying that all of these talks are happening)". 

Just like everyone who is complaining about the crappy performance of Oculus on Steam with SteamVR, give the dust a chance to settle. The SDK was always coming to Steam eventually, that was obvious, but it wasn't there on initial launch. No huge surprise really, and everyone over reacting about it and complaining who jumped shipped to the Oculus store was just impatient. Look, a bit over a month after VR launch, what happens? We find out the SDK is coming to Steam - wow! Same thing is happening with the DLC, it will come to the Oculus store. It's just a matter of time, give it a bit and you will see the DLC over there.

Hi @PJTierney. I was wondering.. Why we can't do customs livery in DiRT Rally 2.0 ? I mean, I think that customs livery could attract more players but mainly the teams and sponsors so the World Championship will interest more teams so more players etc. Maybe I'm wrong but it's my opinion, I think that customs livery could be really cool in the game 🙂

What the hell?! Did not get the chance to do the qualifier because you updated the game?

What on earth are you people thinking? Just made the fastest time in practice and was going 

to do the Qualifier. I restart the game  since there was no connection with RaceNet, and then it 

start downloading an update.. :classic_wacko: You need to fix this in some way so we can do our qualification. 

I have spent far beyond 100 hours practicing this stage for this.

Wow PC is a lot more competitive than the consoles, especially Xbox doesn't even come close.

It's almost like someone called this exact scenario for the finals and why they've been saying the semi's will be the best battles...
