DiRTy Forumers League

Recommended Posts

This is rallying. Deal with it. 
Well gee, herpaderp. I guess me finishing the event didn't mean anything. Derphurp.

But yeah, I did deal with it. I'm saying others may not, as some of the finnish stages are extremely hard on the car.
I know you dealt with it and you still had a moan. Are you sure you're not actually Sebastien Ogier, your stage times and current demeanour on the forum would suggest so. 
I didn't moan. I pointed out that the placing of service areas weren't so fantastic. You don't need to act like an ass if you disagree with it.
Lighten up Seb FFS. Here watch these.

Hello! I had some account issues on the forum today and couldn't post, so...

Steam ID is FloatingGrass (either that or my username pingrbx, never knew)

I think I sent a league application or request or whatever earlier today. I read the rules and am ready to win get beaten by Porkhammer and many others in the league. :)

I would love an option of a co-driver who would be cracking up jokes in between the pace notes xD

These annoying jumps are everywhere, i mean everywhere! I would be totally happy if there would be jumps everytime the copilot says jump (maybe), but in finland you catch air like 4-5 times as much.
Yup. Crest = Probably massive jump, it's silly.

Sorry @KickUp , but when you get back, we need this as DLC. Even if it pushes the games rating up. :D

I crashed into a tree on the first stage and gave up because I hate Finland. It just doesn't feel fun going full speed over jumps and around corners.

wow.. not many drivers completing Finland event :frowning: 

Just finished last stage right now. 

I started with fear, even a litle scared; so the first 3/4 stages were a bit to much safe. But I was able to find a perfect car setup for me.

The las half I was quick and safe enough, making top 30 overall times.

Didnt get a single flat, driving was nice and clean. Not the fastest but it deserves a good 2nd for now.

PS: @Porkhammer , dude, Starman.
Human leagues doesnt fit your skillz anymoar. Go back home and show off your people what you learned on hearth.
If you ever come back, reincarnate in Katy Perry and unravel the mysteries of Curling.

Well...went Kakaristo quite well, top 40 time overall.

Then I watched the replay, made some screenshots for the report. Wanted to upload to imgur...alt-tab, game crashes - first time for whole Early Access...
I pray that my time was saved for God sake... great it wasn't...I'd be 5th just before Senor Ozores after first stage...I think I'll retire for the rest of the event as I don't want to restart it.

Here's crash dump filename as an evidence of game crashing. My timezone is currently -1 so that's why it's 13 and not 14 as forum's time.
drt_1087863_crash_2015_12_5T13_6_42C0.mdmp

And now Error 41....well that looks quite bad.


P.S. I was lying that it was first time, it was third as this is the count of crash dumps I have in my dir. Anyway it's almost like it never ever happened before.

I decided to try the impossible and do the event without service area because I'm running on the beta-build... Well;

SS1 & SS2: OK, no big problems but drove like a grandma to protect the car.
SS3: Crashed on the same place as always due to the pacenote coming too late but only got a puncture so I repaired it. Lost 2min 20sec to Porky.
SS4: Went off twice, broke cooler and had a puncture.
SS5: Went off twice again, had puncture to both front tires, finished the stage with puncture on the right front wheel.
SS6: Puncture was repaired for the start of the stage. Went OK.
SS7: Quite OK. Managed to cut the difference of guy in front of me from 3 minutes to around 1 minute.
SS8: One big off where I lost +10 seconds. Otherwise went quite OK. At the end lost for the guy in front of me about 15 seconds... Finished 9th/10.

One could say there was some McRae spirit in this event. My poor scooby looked like it was raped with a hammer by a pork at the end of the rally!

Has the Escort been buffed in V2 to the level it's competitive against Impreza and Delta? Or is it still the "Extra gear for nothing"?

7th gear for almost nothing still, and i am running gearing shorter than a tree stump!! Also, quite a hard drive - i would have gained close to a minute if i had done this with a 3/4 upgrade Delta i guesstimate. (Suspension/stability differences)

That was brilliant. After 8 stages with no services, that Scooby was smashed. It sounded like a steam engine, I was waiting for it to explode at any momen after it started whistling in stage 6.

x.X The escort has 7 gears? Well you learn something new every day I guess...
You have the reaction times of a large building in San Francisco.

Had nice first 3 stages, then on 4th I've smashed my tire. Fixed it. First corner after fixing, bam into rocks with that tire...and it was gone totally...had to do 3/4 of stage without a wheel and with 2 other punctures. Then on next stage I've crashed so badly at the begining that my patience was gone and had to retire.
Too bad cause my start was pretty good not counting the game crash at first try.

Even with the shortest gears, i still went into seventh ... 5 times over last 4 stages? First 4 i was still getting to grips with Finland, haven't driven it too much.
