First of all, thank you Codemasters for a challenging but fun dlc, I’ve lost weight doing these challenges on very hard, I’m using a DualShock4 too so I’ve got my work cut out for me, I’ve finished The Early Years, Rising Star, and most of World Champion on very hard (91 difficulty) but I feel like there may be a bit of a tuning issue with the difficulty regarding the Subaru Impreza S4, specifically the 1998 Monte Carlo event, all of the challenges in this vehicle are tougher than the rest, and that’s saying something, but this Monte Carlo event is impossible, i know I’ve nailed the stages but I’ve never seen the class leader move like that on any stage, I’m almost 40 seconds off the required time and considering every challenge up to his has kept the same level of difficulty, this one may need to be looked at, thanks though for an awesome DLC, I feel like I’m doing Colin proud every time I finish one ☝️ 

please do look into the Impreza S4 events @PJTierney

@PJTierney yea the difficulty for very hard (set at 91) should be spiked for players that don’t own wheels and have to use controllers, I know a lot of devs think a controller is as fast as a wheel set up but the effort required has to be god like, and in some cases it just isn’t, meaning your catering to the 0.01% of gamers, if you want to make it insanely hard past (91) by all means but give pad users a fair chance at completing it

The event in question is the 1998 Monte Carlo event, its just too much, with my skill I’ve been able to do all up to this on very hard at (91) with not too much difficulty but I’m quite good at the game, 1992 Scotland had me beat for a full day of trying but eventually learned the stage well enough and put in a good effort, so they’ve not been a walk in the park by any means (as it should be on v hard) but then with this I’m miles off the required pace, it feels like the devs have just decided to increase the difficulty from 91 to 110 here by default, with a controller here you just can’t do the stage times pros with wheels are doing, can you get back to me and let me know if this is being looked into, I haven’t done any of the later events after this so I’m not sure if you’ve made them progressively harder as you get through them but something has to be done with this event for sure, thanks

@PJTierney my apologies, as it turns out it was fine, as it should be, I was using the winter tyres for the second stint, but to reach the required time you need to pick softs and just deal with the ice when your on it, cheeky, throwing me off there by adding an irrelevant tyre choice for the challenge,  this dlc is going to annoy a lot of players 

That said, players have reported a time glitch, which seems to resolve itself by restarting the game, you can find any details on the DR2 threads on psnp, doesn’t seem like too much of an issue when you can just restart

By the way, thanks for fixing the windscreen wipers (manual only) finally 😉 also the improvements to rain etc on the windscreen is much much better than before, this is the best rally game ever made and I cannot WAIT for DR3, go easy on the very hard challenges next time tho eh?

To both: No.

1998 Monte Carlo is not impossible.
You don't need to beat the target, you just have to be in the zone of a minute behind him.
I did it several times already, today even first try with several seconds left.
2 days ago I had 24 seconds left (over the course of all 3 stages).

Theres nothing wrong with the SUBARU Impreza S4 Rally challenges.
 

And I use a standard xbox one s controller.
No problem completing everything with it.

Is it extremely hard? - Ooooooh yeah!

Is it impossible? - No way!

Not everything has to be made easy for the casual gamers!

That time of 2:12 on that monte Carlo challenge on stage 3 was bugged for you, I did it today and the cpu was doing 2:31 which is actually managable.
