On Wednesday, September 25th of 2018, Codemasters announced their new entry in the DiRT series - DiRT Rally 2.0.

To help get the word out, AOR has released a news article, our first since the website changes, detailing the game's announcement. You can read it for yourself right here in our news section.

Along with the announcement, a trailer and screenshots were also released.

Before anyone asks, I can confirm sign-ups for both the Rally and RX leagues will open on launch day. I'll utilize the early access from the deluxe edition and hopefully a spot in a private beta to make sure you're all up-to-date with the necessary information you may or may not want to participate in the league. For now I'm keeping a closeful watch, but if you see/read something about DiRT Rally 2.0 that you think might affect the leagues, don't be afraid to post it in here and tag me, @SereneLogic. :)

I'm going to try my best to make the leagues even a bigger platform on AOR and DiRT :)

Ok, so looked at the promo covers in GAME.......

WHY IS IT RATED 18+

ARE WE REALLY GOING SO OVERBOARD WITH SENSITIVITY, RALLY GAMES, CONTROLLED RACES THAT ARE REGULATED ARE NOW RATED 18+?!

"These games are teaching kids to speed in real life" im guessing is the reason

WHAT THE WHAT! FIRST NFS GOES 16+, COD GOES 18+, SW BF IS NOW 16+

WHY DO GAMES HAVE TO BE 18+ THESE DAYS! MOST GAMES I SEE ON THE SHELF'S ARE 18+

I remember back when games were a variety of ratings.....NOT EVERY FPS OR ANYTHING REMOTELY MATURE BEING 18+!

I did some quick looking up, but I'm only getting 3+ ratings, which would be the reasonable rating. 18+ wouldn't make any sense xD

Sadly with the current state of the build we can't hold any leagues. For Rally there simply isn't the clubs feature yet, as for RX we're missing a few key features:
  • Player vs. Player racing WITHOUT AI
  • Ability to select format's starting grid, i.e. whether we want to start in a line (as we'd do in Heats) or whether we want to start staggered (as we'd do in Semi's and Finals)
  • Ability to select who starts where on the starting grid (key feature for RX as with Semis and Finals, starting position is anything, should be determined by heats, which the system does, but we can't limit our leagues to 8 players....That'd be rather stupid.
  • ALSO A SPECTATOR CAMERA WHICH ISNT THERE ATM
So for AOR it's quite bad actually, the driving's amazing but atm AOR can't do anything but wait until we've got the resources in the game to hold a league either Rally or RX.

Oh, that's sad... I was really waiting to get compete in Rally again (I did DR1 couple years ago in AOR). Hopefully game gets needed features atleast for rally pretty soon!

RX sounds it needs more work from Codemaster. And back in the days with DR4 RX events, starting time was so late for me that I would probably skip AOR RX events anyway, even it's really fun :)

We moved events for RX to saturdays, and the starting time is up for debate at this point in time. :)

Okay, let's see then :) RX is very fun in multiplayer. But sometimes there is too much whining about little contacts... That's why I prefer Rally. You can do comp when it best suites to you and only clock tells who is good or not :)

In RX the little contact is allowed, that said heavy shoving isn't allowed. From my experience the RX is way more fun than Rally because of those side-by-side moments. But everyone has a right to his/her own opinion. :)

I agree with you. RX is way more intense and it's fun when everyone on line understands that you have to be respectful, but RX is not F1 so contacts may and will occur. I have experience of stupid whining in AOR DR4 RX events, so that's why I even said anything about it.

I'm personally in charge of running those events, after I took over we've had very little incidents with being being disrespectful or whiny for that matter. :)

The game has been pretty awesome, can wait for you to get the league going in the near future! AOR Dirt hype is real baby!!!! If only the tarmac physics could be touched up a bit, but still fun non the less. What a awesome time to live, when really cool people create awesome racing leagues.
