    CM have not implemented it yet ingame :( Your guess is as good as mine as to when it will be added, if at all in 2017.

    If you mean an RD league, it won't be for a while I shouldn't think. For starters, leagues need to be added to the game first! Also, the RDRC was run quite recently in DiRT Rally. The guys deserve a nice break before organising the next one!

    Like it's been said, Codemasters haven't even included the leagues (or, clubs as it will be called in D4) in the game yet, so even if we wanted to start it tomorrow, there's actually no chance to do this :(

    Oh, I wasnt aware leagues werent even included. I should do my research better, had I known this I wouldn't have bought the game in the first place.
    Right, same question as in the thread title again, but with a different game; when will the next Dirt Rally league run again?.... :)

    I asked CM a week or two ago via Twitter about the leagues (clubs) and the answer was, it should be rather weeks than months until it will be implemented :)
    Be patient...

    Probably not at all. It is a hard thing to decide on, as both games have advantages over the other. We are more likely to go with D4 for next season :)

    Understandable, but if clubs/leagues/whatever isnt a possibility, do you have a backup plan? You have 3-400 eager rallyists impatiently waiting for next season :)

    Btw, why in the hell was clubs/league/get-togethers/people-smashing-cars-into-trees-together not included in the first place? Surely is nearly just a matter of copying what was done in DR..?

    Given all the problems with DR and RaceNet, perhaps they're trying to improve the net code or something, and it wasn't ready for release day. I hope so, because some people's RDRC was ruined by RaceNet problems.

    Well, firstly because of summer holiday :) Both in general simracing is less popular during summer, us staffies tend to go on holiday as well.
    Secondly we were a bit worn out after last season, so it was nice with a little break.
    Thirdly, if Codies mess up the club/league thingy, or just keeps not releasing it, we will of course run it in another game than D4 :)

    My guess would be that they have some issues with the stage generator and the racenet-thingy.

    I'd support one, only we play on Xbox. I find the handling to be worse in some ways, but better in others, and it was. .Best of all, they really nailed the rally cross and Land Rush vehicles. With those, you can run together in a race, on line, with an xbox. League is ready to go.

    Leagues (clubs) will be cross platform by default in D4. Which is a good thing for us organizers.
    Land Rush and RX have max 8 players, so thats a no no for the RDRC at least.

    I don't think it was just a matter of copying what was done in DR as quite a lot related to leagues has changed between the two games. Also, they've mentioned quite a few times they have big plans with the clubs when they come. Not sure how/if that changed, though, given the general reception of the game, which was probably quite a lot colder than they expected.

    It's really not helped by the gap between patches so far, or the fact the patch process is a joke. I think it's going to take more work than just enabling leagues to really rejuvenate interest in D4 in the long-term. I also think it would have helped divert attention from the game's issues if such features were in the game from release, but there you go.
