I am not sure I get your point versedi.
And I did not notice this thread was 3 weeks old :|- silly me.
I've meant that they're not fixing body for 1%.

This monthly was a lot of work. Some people are so fast in these cars. I focused on finding a good balance between speed and consistency, but of course there were some minor hiccups, still. zeXav put up a very hard fight in both Germany and Monaco - well done monsieur. Happy to have completed it, I'll reward myself with a Javameister now!

(there's a reason almost nobody uses the Subaru, by the way - ten points to the one who guesses it)

Wow, a clean sweep of all five events right now. Congratulations!

You noticed there was christmas, by the way? Just in case...

And the Subaru? No clue, having only tried it out once. Slow? Bad character?

It bottoms out A LOT and thus makes you lose control easily after landings. It needs fixing!

Unfortunately I got to the last Welsh stage before everyone came round for NYE.  I tried to retire to upload my times to that point, hit the wrong button and got reset to my time as the 2nd last Finnish stage lol.  I think despite the rolls and spins, I was up to 34th at the last so the car must be full power but no advanced setup or something?

Finished the monthly today. Was using the VW Polo. In Wales and Sweden banged it up a bit, but drove Greece quite cleanly and by the last service stop had it almost back to 100% :D Currently I'm 30th of 170

I still have a lot to figure out on tarmac, I was down to around 20th by the end of Germany. I put a pretty strong showing in at Wales, my best country and my home event, so that dragged me up. Average run in Sweden, but what a rush. Charged as hard as I could in Greece and that wrapped it up.

Definitely alright with P6!

My monthly was going swell 12 stages in, two spins but no major mistakes - was leading by ten seconds. Then I reached Sweden... and a certain little individual whom shall not be named had hotlapped every-single-stage there before gunning it. There's not enough time left for me to learn to go fast in Sweden with the 2010's - I struggle as it is in every other location - so rather than giving this desperate being any satisfaction, I just erased my progress instead, because this just isn't fair play. His excuse? "hurr durr wanted to beat Elias' times hurr", who funnily enough isn't even participating in the monthly.

Oh well.

What a sh1t attitude you have these days. 'If I can't be 1st and look so perfect then why should I bother' it's a f*cking game, go suck a lemon and man up.

Funny how you complain about someone hotlapping the track when you yourself have said that you practice beforehand.

I don't mind losing, I just want it to be fairplay. If I had the "attitude" you described, then why did I lose both weekly events? Maybe you think it's fair if someone hotlaps every single stage in a monthly event, but I sure as hell do not. You can go suck something else.

Are you thick or something? I practice for daily events, but for the monthly events I try to do as many consecutive stages as possible.

Yes, the dude did a Sweden stage, save and exit, practice the next, back to monthly - rinse and repeat. If RCM finds that acceptable and me being whiny, so be it - but it just isn't fairplay in my book.

Maybe this question is stupid, but how can you know this?

No need to throw insults. Practicing for a daily = prerunning the stage, I failed to see the difference between that and what the other bloke did for Sweden in the monthly.

I asked him if he did it and he said yes.

I apologise, was a bit annoyed. Prerunning one stage for a daily event is one thing, but to do it for every single stage in Sweden just isn't ok. At least in my opinion.
