DiRT Rally GOL League - 1970s Season

Never a Monaco run without getting stuck on top of some snow...

Doesn't seem like extending the events made a difference. Hard to say if the constantly diminishing amount of participants is due to summer holidays or just Dirt Rally getting "old" and people moving on. I hope we can keep this going anyway. These league events are pretty much the only reason I keep coming back to this excellent game every week.

Off topic: Someone should arrange something similar for Rocket League. That's another game I really enjoy but almost never play. And I do mean similar: Just for fun, no pressure, flexibly scheduled, friendly matches with leaderboards of some sort for those who care.

Yeah, might be the summer holidays, might be that its getting old for some.
Will see how it turns out, im more than happy to run some more seasons, cause i still enjoy the game.

Summer may not help indeed. Of course, it also doesn't help if I keep forgetting to actually drive.

Got through Greece early this week

Was feeling somewhat satisfied with my performance through the first six stages, but the last two.... One reset for each, and a flat tire halfway through the last one. At least I didn't lose the wheel until I could see the finish line

Greece done by me also, couple of half spins, some spins, 1 penalty due spectators and small crash into cars

I watched the first stage, very impressive how fast you can drive while staying in control.

He is quick, no way around it. For my own peace of mind, I tell myself that part of that control is afforded by the feel and feedback from his wheel and pedal setup. I mean I often feel like I know what I'd need to do but just can't. There's a reason we don't drive real cars with a couple of triggers and a thumb stick.

But I repeat, I don't think I'd be anywhere as fast as he is with a wheel, just much closer.

Well Xpander is consistently faster than all of us. Indeed very impressive.

I know the felling, especially without using assists.

tuubi commented on 20 August 2017 at 12:06 pm UTC

Finally done. Had some super lucky runs, even got the fastest time on one stage and that made my day. Of course not all of the runs were equally lucky. I finished one stage on my roof (that was weird) and another one backwards. I wish I'd recorded it all.

Still having fun BTW. I have to say I really love this game to bits, and it's all thanks to this community.
