A few more Racenet comments on redit: https://www.reddit.com/r/dirtgame/comments/4hstvb/whats_going_on_with_racenet/

For those of you with Racenet issues, do you also have issues creating/joining private PVP sessions?

• Exactly when the error occurred: 1: "Quit" the game from Xbox dashboard, rebooted the xbone, launched game>Career > Online Events.

• Messaging that was displayed: 1: Connection Failed. The Racenet service is not available. Try again later.

• What platform are you trying to access RaceNet from? Xbox One

Location: U.S.

Note: I have noticed however that if you keep trying over and over, you may get a different error msg and you will eventually get in.

Similar issue with my buddies and I trying to create a private PVP session. Multiple tries gets us in otherwise we get: "Disconnected: You must be signed into Xbox Live. Make sure you're signed into an Xbox Live profile and your connection is ok.". I spoke at length with support who were super helpful. I thought we had resolved this issue by clearing the alternate MAC address. 

We have since tested each time we've had the issue (daily). We've tried closing the game, rebooting the console, clearing caches, clearing Alt Mac addy, signing in, signing out, different routers, different router settings, standing on one leg, sticking our tongue out, sticking our fingers up, swearing and every combo imaginable. 

We've came to the conclusion that with Racenet and Private PVP multiple to numerous tries will eventually get you in.

Yeah, racenet is still being pretty unreliable, but if you really persist through methods such as continually trying to connect or quitting out of the game and starting it up again. Isn't very stable when you get into it though. Trying to do league events is a nightmare because after every stage or two it'll say that it couldn't upload the time and you have to quit out and try again. The worst one is when it says can't connect to league leaderboards and all you can do is keep trying to force it to connect or exit the game. I'm on Xbox One by the way.

Hi, I'm a member of a UK gaming forum called Rllmuk and we've been loving Dirt Rally so much that we've set up a league with 29 gamers (Xbox, PS4, PC) and now on our 4th rally in the League Championship. The problem is we've been unable to connect to Racenet over the past two weeks and even if we do succeed we often have our times not saved. It was going so well but now gamers are starting to drift away from the league. Please Codemasters,  fix this issue. It's genuinely the best driving/rallying game I've played in years.

I didn't had issues for a week or so now. It seems to be pretty stable and I was happy about it.

But today it's here again. Can't finish my Weekly2-event with the Manta. Every time after finished the first Baumholder stage, I will be thrown back to menu, "RaceNot not available". After quitting and starting Dirt again, I try the stage again. After finishing the stage (while the second Baumholder stage will be loaded) it quits again. Will quit trying now, and have to live with it that the first 4 stages was waste of time.

I'm so upset. It's so frustrating.

Driving on PC. Located in Austria.

None of the members of our league (https://www.dirtgame.com/leagues/league/48606/vcb-crashfest) have been able to connect over the past 12-ish hour period. One guy managed to post a time, but I believe it was before any of us tried.

We're all able to see events, but when we select Leagues it goes to downloading league data, checking for expired league events, then "the RaceNet service is not available".

@fragman001

The guys in my league have unfortunately had to do the same and as i put in my tech support thread the points have gone screwed up after 1 event already. So leaving and rejoining the league mid season obviously will screw it@fragman001
For now i am just tracking our league manually but i really hope we can get a response and get this system sorted as it has the potential to be awesome as the game already is!

Update: Onto try event two today in our season and along with the guys dropping off our leaderboards we now have the same issue with a few people not being able to connect, and only workaround is to leave the league, which basically screws us all  up anyway.

So codemasters??? Come on guys, Surely you must monitor these forums? There are a lot of people here looking for answers or even a notice to state what is going on?

I love your game, it is fantastic but so far your forum moderation and tech support is mince, not just in regards to my post but the amount of unanswered threads myself and others are looking at.

Please can you let us know you exist.....!!!!

Im running an Estonian Virtual Autosport League rally series in Dirt Rally and almost half of the drivers are having this issue, including me. Which means that out of 40 drivers half of them are encountering this problem.  Thats a serious problem, if people need to countiniously spam the "OK" button in their homes to continue driving...  :/

Yes, it worked the last few days. But today the problem occurs again!! AAAARGH!
Monthly event: Raced the first stage twice now, and I give up on the third try. It make no sense AND no fun.

UK on PC here.  

It's a bit worrying that the problem with Racenet was acknowledged in the OP to this forum last September and some 8 months later the Blog is still acknowledging there is a problem.
 
Today, after pressing enter for the stage to actually start in an online event,  the following message appears, "CONNECTION FAILED  The Racenet service is not available. Please try again later."  Then message repeats if I attempt to get into any other league of event.  Quit, reboot Dirt Rally but go through exactly the same sequence each time.  

ALSO any progress in career/custom events are lost when I next start Dirt Rally.  

Had these problems in the past from time to time, but usually resolved by Steam "verify integrity of game cache" or removing all subscribed Steam Workshop files, or added liveries.  But not this time.

@ceolmor Half the problem here is that the current racenet issues aren't related to this thread start, i wouldn't worry about that, these are new after the release of 1.1.

The other issues you're experiencing, you will need to delete the contents of the Dirt Rally folder, *then* validate the cache.  This is not the same as a straight validation or an uninstall.  Alternatively, if you know you have added folders or *additional* files to DR, you can remove them.

It's happening again. Can't finish Weekly2-event because of the error.
Yesterday I drove the first 2 German stages. I crashed after I tried to start the thirt one (Finland). Message "RaceNet not available". Also after restarting Dirt Rally, and I tried again, the error appeared again.
Today the second try: I tried to start stage no.3 (Finland) - again crashed, "RaceNet not available". Second try today after restarting Dirt Rally: "RaceNet not available". :-(
Before the Weekly2-Try today, I finished both daily events. BUT: On both events the leaderboard can't be loaded after finishing the stage. I was angry in the first, BUT I had the luck that my time was saved. When I hit the X-button after crashed to the menu I saw my time was saved.

PC-version, Austria, no custom liveries or so on.

When I remember correctly, I finished only 1 (ONE) Weekly event since I drive Dirt Rally. All the other times, I wasn't able to finish it, because of the "RaceNet not available"-error. Isn't this absolutely unbelievable!?

PS4 Version. I've had the game a few days and I've never been able to get online. "Racenet Server Unavailable".
I just tried unlinking my account and linking it again.... but now I can't even link it because "Racenet Server Unavailable".
The Dirt Rally website is awful too. Takes hours to load one damn page.

Was looking forward to this game and years of Americanised rubbish, now it's finally here and I can't get online :@
