    Most people seem to be very happy with it.

    Ok Iíve had a go now, and it seems really good so far. Itís pretty rattly up at 100 though so Iíve dialled it down to 50.

    Definitely an improvement I think, although this is the only game Iíve really played with a wheel so I might not know any different.

    I've taken the plunge now. I'm happy to try it, at one time it looked like they weren't going to fix FFB.

    I was worried this was going to be purely RX stuff, so I'm really glad we're getting Wales. It was my favourite location in DR1.

    Is there going to be a third lot of DLC? It would be a shame if we didn't get Greece and Finland in DR2

    I just donít get RX at all. Iíve tried it a few times, but generally happy to ignore it. Glad Wales is coming, not played it in DR1, so will be completely new to me.

    Wales is great. Would love Greece and Finland with the new physics though.

    Wales is great news. Also that season 2 starts right after season 1 without break. And omg, the 70s 911, fantastic news too. Can't wait to create an EG event with that in wet Australia. And the 037 returns \o/

    All that RX stuff is kind of a letdown, but expected.

    There are rumours that they will come after season 2, but of course that's rumours and also a long time to go.

    I think Finland would profit most from DR2's physics. DR1's light cars and excessive jumps were a problem in other locations, but in Finland it was preposterous. You spent most of the time flying 100 metres high.

    Actually in its early access phase, originally the physics were kind of the opposite, as if the cars were sucked to the ground with magnets. That wasn't great in most places, but in Finland it worked better than the updated physics imo.

    Quick question about the DLC. I don't have the season pass. But if I buy the Wales add-on, how does it integrate into the rest of the game? Will it come up as part of the standard single player or will it be a standalone thing?

    The DLC events can turn up in the single player championships, it's all pretty seamless.

    Thatís weird, I was just driving the Metro on Fuller Mountain Ascent again just now (crashed a lot) and I noticed I could see the names of all the players, regardless of their platform.

    Decks is right above me, and I can see Strangelove a few places down. I hope it wasnít just a bug, because thatís pretty cool.

    Anyone else see that?

    Must be a bug. Joking aside, I can see Decks now, but you're still "Dirt Player" here (I'm on Steam). Decks is on PS4, are you on XBox maybe?

    Yep Iím Xbox, but strange you could see PS players. I wonder if theyíre prepping it for the leagues for all platforms or is that asking too much.

    Is there a Eurogamer league or did you add each other individually?
    I've just started playing and it's fun if to compare, even though I'm very bad right now.. wow.

    No me Decks and the Doc are all on different platforms, and until just now so weíve just been exchanging times. Thereís some weirdness going on with the leaderboards right now so we can see each other, when we previously couldnít.

    Well so far it seems PS and PC players are visible to everyone while XBox players are not. Hope this'll get sorted for true cross-platform leaderboards. If so, cross-platform leagues shouldn't be a problem anymore.

    Leagues are going to be cross platform apparently. If they ever come.

    Is the deluxe version worth it? Itís like twice the price of the base game on cdkeys.

    @Fake_Blood

    Depends on how much Dirt Rally you want. Twice the price does seem steep though, you're not getting twice the content.

    My highest placing so far is 17th. On the career start in FWD.
    It was worse but softlock has helped the feel of the wheel a lot.

    I don't remember being this bad in DR1 at the start.

    Great news about Wales, and fingers crossed for Greece.
    Havenít been on this for about 4 weeks, and my god itís amazing how rusty you get. Had 5 attempts on the Fuller Mountain Ascent. Crashed 4 times and managed a 3.19.63. Way behind you guys!. Even driving in a straight line is a struggle now !
    Can see everyoneís times on the Xbox.

    Itíll all come back soon enough. Especially if we get another time trial challenge going, itís been a while.

    With Germany out in a few days, we could probably do one of the courses there.
