DR2.today - Community Challenges Hub

Recommended Posts

I have recently launched a new website for browsing Dirt Rally 2.0 community challenge leaderboards. Please check it out at https://dr2.today

Currently on this website you can:

  • view ongoing daily, weekly and monthly community challenges and their itineraries
  • browse past challenges and their leaderboards
  • enter your RaceNet name to see the list of challenges you have entered and find which position you have finished at

More features are planned, including filtering by nationality, detailed driver statistics and more!

Good idea, having Twitter announcements could be fun.

Regarding Bonus challenges... any hopes we could have them available at https://dirtrally2.dirtgame.com/community-events (or at least the API)? :classic_rolleyes:

 

I could ask but knowing how the website gets updated I imagine it'll be very low down the priority list.

I shall use my first post on this forum to say:

Thanks! 

The "My Challenges" tab is very useful, along with the percentage in the "My rank" row. I can now easily check by what margin I suck. 🙂

It would be nice if my time (+difference) was included in that view as well.

Thanks @floydferrera! I'm happy to hear that.

Regarding your feedback:

Which view do you mean exactly?

You can find your time and difference at the bottom at the leaderboard.

Do you mean something like this?

I made an account just to give you a big thumbs up for making this site! It makes it SO much easier to view my results and helps keep me motivated to keep improving.

One feature that I would appreciate is on the My Challenges page, to be able to see a quick-glance summary of my result on the right, maybe my rank or percentile, and it could be colored green -> red based on the result.

Thank you very much for making this!

Thanks for the site, very well done. Hopefully, I will have my name in some of them soon.

Is there any way to view your times from within the game championship? Is there a website for this, or is this something you could do?

@Evaredyv2 You mean single player championships? If so, I don't know, sorry. I'm working with whatever is available at https://dirtrally2.dirtgame.com.

@subssubs I have added a new column to "My Challenges" page (no colors yet though). Let me know what you think! 😃

On an unrelated note, the site is now also tracking DNF status. The challenge page displays the number and percentage of drivers who finished without crashing.

Have you considered making some way that a Discord or Twitter message is sent whenever a new event begins?

Coming back to this, I could do with a Discord bot that points out when new challenges are live.

If it could be done with a webhook that's the best option 🙂

@PJTierney Got it working! How about this format?

Are you okay PM'ing me your webhook URL?

Almost spot on 🙂 

I'd put a separator between the class and the challenge name and trim the location name, like this:

R2 • Daily Challenge • [flag]

I'd also remove the "new challenges are available" line as I'll name the bot accordingly 😉  

Gimme another look at the output and I'll make a webhook.

Great website, very helpful.

If I could make a suggestion, having the weather conditions on the itineraries for challenges would be helpful in setting up mock challenges for practice.

thanks

Thanks for the feedback. Unfortunately this information is not available via the official RaceNet website so there is not much I can do.

I'm hopeful the new RaceNet website (currently in beta) will open up more data.

Thanks for this work, bookmarked as soon as I’ve came across this side. 
however despite I submit my race net name it couldn’t fetched my clubs/results. Maybe because my race net and steam names differ (tried both) or my steam name contains symbols (parentheses).

Hi, could you PM me both your racenet and steam names so I can look into it?

I see it is only for daily/weekly/monthly challenges right? Not for clubs or championships there I’m currently in?

Would you be open to clubs/leagues requesting to have their events listed on your site?

It worked well for the Official Club.

Let's try! Do you have a particular club in mind?

One caveat though is that I need to manually import event data at the beginning of each championship season. For the official club it is not a problem because the season is so long and I don't mind doing the import procedure once a year. However if the club runs short seasons frequently, it can get pretty tedious.

Nevertheless, I am happy to include more clubs on the site, so let's give it a go and I'll see if I can better automate the process.

On an unrelated note, since the site has been running for a few months now, I can gather some interesting statistics from the data.

For starters, here are the top daily challenge locations (excluding DLC):

Considering the criticism the tarmac physics often receive, I find it interesting that Spain is currently the most popular rally location 🙂

With the WRC Rally Greece coming up in a couple of weeks, I have created a one-off club event.

  • Location: Greece, 12 stages
  • Class: R5
  • Hardcore damage
  • Unexpected moments

Event page: https://dr2.today/challenges/857/entries

Club: https://dirtrally2.dirtgame.com/clubs/club/393527

The event is now live and it ends on Monday, September 13. Join up! 🇬🇷

Congrats to Maciek for winning the Greece challenge above. I will set up Finland next week.

In other news, I have implemented leaderboard tiers corresponding to Dirt Rally 2.0 reward tiers:

Also added driver rank which is equal to the most common tier achieved over your last 10 events. For example, if you have finished 6 times in tier A and 4 times in tier B, your driver rank will be A. Only official daily, weekly, monthly and Official DiRT Championship entries are included. Your rank is displayed in the upper right corner next to your name.

@gedazz would it be possible to see a driver's Tier on the reuslts page of an event?

Could be cool to see if a B-Rank sneaks into the Top 100 of an event for example.

I was thinking of adding it but realized it requires a bit too much work. But yeah, I might implement it some time down the line.

Sounds good, and don't work yourself too hard. You've done great stuff with the site already 🙂

Quick post on some recent site updates 👋

Launched club integration with DiRTy Gossip and Global Rallyfans communities. If there is another popular club you would like to see on the site, please let me know!

I've also added a couple of experimental sections to the Stats page: most active nationalities and best performing nationalities.
