Then this season will be my last in the top 3. I'm a consistent driver that finishes stages and rallies but not very quick at all.

Don’t jump the gun dude, my rally ethos comes from a childhood of watching the late great Colin McRae. I subscribe to his school of “win it, or bin it”. And I suspect the latter will happen more often than not

Ha! I wreck all the time too. But when I get it right, the stage is stupid fast.

I'd say it's probably the better alternative to the balls-out "win or crash & burn" method that the rest of us have been using! Keep it up, add a little speed on stages you've done before and you'll see your times improve more and more. ;)

It seems we've all started out the same way then!

I probably rolled and wrecked the cars in my first ever stages as well, I know I got the crashing trophies in DiRT games right away, not deliberately! :lol:

I used to follow the "win it or bin it" method as well, but all I got from it was a mangled car after every stage, struggling to keep the engine from blowing up or just the wheels under the car by the end of the rally or just getting a few fastest stages, only to retire the rally before finish due to the car not surviving the beat-down. :P This season, I learned that the way to go about it is to prioritise the car's health and clean stages over being the fastest on every stage at all costs. I have to say, my driving improved, results improved and my car stayed in close to prime condition for most of the rallies. As I said to Lime: Imagine it's your personal car. You wouldn't treat it so recklessly, would you? Besides, one could win a rally without winning any stages, so there's no need to go all in all the time.

 

Anyway, Season 2 is now over and I'll post the results over the weekend along with some other things. Then you'll be able to see from my videos how I used more caution than in the past and finished all events without damaging the car too much (except for Finland and Wales). I should also have most of the setups for my Hyundai rally car visible in most of the events.

Alright, getting the videos and results up will take until about tomorrow evening, but I'll go ahead and talk to you about the preparations for next season.

First of all, I'd like some feedback on the last 2 seasons.

@Beez @Dodge @LimeGreenLegend, please answer the following:

  • Was the number of rally stages per event (5/6 on average) good for you or would you prefer more or less stages per event? 4 per event would be minimum and 12 maximum.  (NB: Number of events per season remains the same: 4/5)
  • Would you prefer to have the window of completion for each event last for only a day or two OR for a weekend OR for 6 days like it was this last season and why?
  • Anything else you would like to see change or any suggestions, recommendations? Any questions?

 

As for next season, I have a few options for you all current and potential League members ( @Beez, @Dodge, @LimeGreenLegend, @Road2fury, @Crawford1872, @DavidCore89, @Arruda, @ssracingn2) - if you'll be taking part - to vote on:

Season 3 can be for the 2010s rally cars again, the R4 rally cars, the Lancia Stratos OR the intro season for Hillclimb with the Peugeot 205 T16 Pikes Peak.

Which would you prefer? (Hillclimb would have 3 events of 2 stages each, by the way, since it's totally different and considerably longer.)

 

One thing I can say for sure is that our next stage rally season will have an event in Greece for the first time, replacing one of the Season 2 locations!

The amount of rally's and stages for last seasons was great. I also like the longer time to get them done. I'm happy to see Greece in the next season.

As for next season I'd rather keep it rally and do either 2010s or Stratos. After that season I'd be up for doing a hill climb or using that other class.

Last seasons settings are fine. I'd like to try something different. Maybe Group B.

Nope, all are stock. We might have an owned car season with a cheaper car in the future, but not anytime soon.

I'd probably start with Group A before B. Have you tried driving any Group B cars? They're probably the most challenging of all to drive. :D

I kind of want to ease everyone into the more difficult classes over time.

The only policy in place is that XDBX be you primary crew "most" of the time. There is nothing wrong with joining other crews and taking part in their events. Have fun Fury. And I'm glad there is hope for your mom.

Tried the 2010 cars out today and they absolutely murdered me. You guys running with TC and assists for these things? Had them off for the easier cars but starting to think it is impossible on the pad with that much power. 

 

Also any setup ideas would be massively appreciated.

I'll have to check, but I'm 99% sure I've been playing with all assists off almost since the very beginning. Only using automatic transmission.

Watch the videos I posted of last season, all my setups for the Hyundai and how I set them up are in the videos! All the 2010s cars act very differently, though, so each car needs a slightly different setup on each terrain.

I'm more than happy to help you out and walk you through the setup changes personally in party chat sometime, though.

My assists are off unless I'm running the RWD cars. Then I use the lowest TC setting.

Took a while to get into my account, but I should be joined now.

I'll be busy when the first rally starts, but I will finish it on the 11th before the deadline.

See you on the podium :)

      This was made for a Creators Event hosted by Lann, where each participant was given a large section of the map to create a deathmatch. Forced weapon is the Mini SMG, with extra ammo pickups located around the map. There are Armour pickups located at each teams start point. This should be the areas that most players respawn as well. Player limit is now 20 players

      Nestled in the picturesque Tongva Hills region, just north of LS, Marlowe Valley is home to a bountiful botanical wonderland. So try to not damage any of that local foliage while winding your way through wine country on this circuit combining natural roads and stunt props. Laps run about 90s depending on class.
      Another race heavily inspired by @MAHALOKA's stunt tracks. Starting on stunt props, transitioning to natural roads, and back around again. Kerb boosting is not recommended on most of the track. The track and land props are slightly uneven, making it difficult to get back on the track from the land props. Defaulted to Supers, but open to most classes. Sports Classics are my personal favourite, though Dunes and Monster Trucks are a close second.

      What would Overtime Rumble be like if everyone had rockets? Time to find out. --- Two teams of Ruiner 2000s take to the skies and battle to collect the most cash. Player carry limit is four packages. Can you complete all the jumps and survive long enough to make a four package delivery?
      This job seemed like a really good idea, until finding out that the Ruiner 2000s rockets cannot be removed. Several newer weaponized vehicles have a weapon option available now. Not sure if this job will be fun, or an absolute mess now because of the Ruiner's homing rockets. Teams start on opposing platforms with ramps similar to Overtime Rumble. There are ten packages atop Stunt Tube towers with varying sized heights and landing pads. One more package, for a total of eleven, is in the middle on the Maze Bank helipad. The only way to reach a package is to jump from the ramps or from a higher landing pad. Default setting is one round. First team to eight points wins or the team leading after eight minutes. Not sure how fast or slow the rounds will be with different amounts of players. (Rounds/Time might need to be adjusted.) Team bases are located on the "floor" of the map, below each teams ramp. There is a somewhat long Stunt Tube portion to get back to the ramps from the bases. This is because we are not able to use any Boost props in the Capture Creator. They are available in every other job type except captures.  There are RPG pickups at each player start point and beside each package. They are in attempt to balance out the Ruiner's power and give players the ability to kill themselves if they are trapped and need to respawn. Respawn points are at the top of the ramps and players will respawn in a Ruiner 2000. There seems to be a bug causing a small issue with the packages. If a player dies while carrying a package, the package can glitch through the props and land on the ground below. This causes the package to be unobtainable, as there is no way to get from the ground back onto the stunt props without respawning. Not sure if this is just a sporadic issue or if it will happen all the time. There should be plenty of other packages to collect, but if every time someone dies with a package it ends up being unobtainable, this job would be broken. If anyone plays this and has any feedback or suggestions, please let me know. From weapons, package locations, layout, prop colour, anything at all.

      The train was hijacked and the package is now held in the Dignity Village. The villagers have also made use of the heavy weapons from the cargo, and even managed to assemble a few of the anti aircraft trailers. Go in by air or pick up one of the heavy weaponized vehicles found nearby. Assault SMG and RPG. Only one bag available to pick up. 10 min. 30 players. Respawn in P-45 Nokota.
