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.

Season 3 kicks off next Saturday in the 2010s Rally Cars. Compared to last season, we have a new event location (Greece), but 1 regular event less. In it's place is a special event in the Citroën C4 2010 Rally car that goes through 3 different locations (Greece, Germany, Monte Carlo), with 2 stages per location. As last season, every event/round lasts for precisely 6 days, from 8am UTC every Saturday to 8am UTC every Friday, over the course of 5 weeks, with there being a 24hr cool-down period between events. You can save your progress after each stage in every event, so you could do 1 stage per day or divide them differently over the 6 days or do them all at once if you want, etc, etc.

Available cars: Mini Countryman Rally Edition, Ford Fiesta RS Rally, Volkswagen Polo Rally, Hyundai i20 Rally

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 is a job I've thought of a while ago and seeing as I popped on to the creator recently I thought I'd try create it. 
      This is a very experimental job requiring speed and teamwork. The stage I'm at now is just a proof of concept to make sure it works. If it does work as planned then I'll update the props and make it look pretty,
      The premise of the job is to have one of your team jump in the drivers seat of the wastelander and drive as fast as you can to the capture point at the end of the track. The rest of your team will be stood in the back of the vehicle with a choice of two weapons.
      Upto two players per team will have a homing launcher, their job is to take out the opposite teams wastelander on the other track. The rest of the team are armed with flare guns. It's their job to deflect any homing missiles coming towards their wastelander.
      This job really needs a minimum of 6 in toral to get working and will work better at a maximum of 8 per team. I don't think anymore people will fit on a wastelander but I can try and add more if needed.
      It will be important to try and set off as quickly as possible, don't hang around deciding whose doing what job, just climb on and go for it. 
      As I've said this is highly experimental and I'm planning on making lots of changes once the concept has been tested. Rounds are set to 5 minutes,  1 vehicle needed to win the round, 1st to 3 rounds to win. 
      I'm hoping this works.

      A track created in order to test and maybe use in a upcoming event. Intended contact, slipstream and catchup ON. 1 lap is about 6 min (10 about an hour). Being a transform race its limited to 16 players.
       

      The regular version does not allow customs to be turned on, we all race in stock Swinger, Flash GT, XXR and Jester Classic.

      Three peaks mountain bike races are quite common, so I'm told. They have never appealed to me, they seem somewhat oppressive. So my version has a few appropriate modifications.
