Official DiRT Club

Global refers to public[global] or friends.  Though I think it's default as cross platform.

If you can see 'DiRT Player' in the leaderboards you are on the cross platform setting.  You can only see the names of the platform you're on.

Clubs are odd because they seem to take the RaceNet name everywhere, whereas in other places in the game you're seeing the platform names (hence DiRT Player on those).

 

Confirmed on the website:

I'm quite sure this is not correct.
It uses the xbox live gamertag on the leaderboards (stage times), but uses the RaceNet name on the points leaderboards.
My name is different on both, but similar.

At least it's how I see it.
Ultimately confusing, thats for sure.

Yeah I'm not sure exactly how it works for the points table, but club events I know for sure use your RaceNet ID name. I actually changed mine recently just in anticipation of the Official Club and Jon's Thrustmaster Club 😅

 

Holding down 15th in PJ's masochistic mayhem though 💪 Really looking forward to the rest of the season, this was really fun.image.thumb.png.a263baaf48e87d118de869b2ca6fdd26.png

Well, yeah, in-game.
But on the website I see my XBL gamertag.
Maybe only I see it, and everyone else sees the RaceNet-name, not sure.
Or it is, because I log-in with my XBL account.

I may would change my RaceNet-name to the same as my XBL accounts name, because my RaceNet-name is my old XBL gamertag.
But I don't know what would happen to old leaderboard entries in TT and clubs.
Don't wanna mix them up.

Hm, you say it like there will something happen in the near future.
I'm in a club called "JA Thrustmaster" by jonny174, but that one is inactive since many, many months, probably already a year or so.
Do you know something I do not?
Or do you mean the old Expert DiRT club, wich is also inactive for a while now?

Only 9 clubs of 22 I'm in are still active, seems to get less and less recently.

Anyway...

Did my run now.
34th currently. 69:44.129...
Choosed a conservative strategy mith mediums and 1 spare.
Used the old Fiesta R5.

Problem was I didn't used it in quite a while + mediums on R5s are also quite new terrain.
Had some problems judging the grip level in the first half and did some mistakes, but was quite lucky to not hit anything.
Was pretty close twice 😄 

Second half was a bit better, but far from perfect, though.
Got a 18 second time penalty on the last stage due to a mistake.

On the positive side: No dramas, no big crashes. Wheels, lights and engine were still in good shape until the end.
Not often the case after such a long scotland rally for me 😄 

And the most important thing: I was faster than @PJTierney.
W00p, w00p! 🤣

That is always the most important thing 🙂

They are hosting a new championship with some prizes and the aliens are out in force. It's a lot of fun so far. You missed Scotland 2000cc but we've got H2 RWD Monte Carlo this weekend, R2 Australia next, and R5 Greece to close it out.

This is also why I ran Soft & No Spare. I just can't get comfortable enough on the other tires to feel like it's worth it - lose too much pace & confidence compared to Softs and don't feel like I find any more grip 5 stages later when they're worn as well.

Well then, no thanks.
I don't get why they not just used the old club and had to create a new one.
So I missed already a rally, doesn't make much sense to join just for 3 rallies.

So I can leave that "dead" club now, I guess.

Oh I like this, thanks for providing that data. I'll try and fit it into the Codies Racing Line blog next time I write for it 🙂
