"Returning to the service area in rallycross community events or AI challenges will take players to service area" now, that sounds fairly reasonable :roflmao:
 
Does the FFB still suck? That's all I want to know.
I must be in the minority but I think the FFB is perfectly adequate. I use an Accuforce wheel, so maybe that is the difference. The game gets some hate but has provided many amazing driving moments for me. Definitely beats DR and D4 imo.
 
I'm playing on a CSW v2.5 and I don't want my FFB changed. It's not great, but I'm happy with it. Pretty sure that if Codemasters listens to the people that have problems like "it's not strong enough", "I can't feel the road surface" and "need feel of understeer" or "tire flex!", it would feel worse for me and I'd have to tinker with it for 2 hours only to realize it will never be as good(or "ok") as before again.

Agree and the Accuforce with Foundation seems a bit better to feel rear traction loss or to add some bumps-effects not in the game-FFB. Otherwise i suggest to use at least SimVibe seat with this title. Once you feel even small dirt patches on the used tarmac-stages this title get's alive and i don't even complain about the tarmac-physics.
 
I'm glad I've let this game pass for now. Definitely getting it on a 75% off sale, but for me, Dirt Rally 1.0 was much better. At least no icy slippery tarmac physics.
 
Curious if DiRT Rally 2.0 Deluxe Edition is still available anywhere in the US. Amazon and Game Stop are not showing it. And I really don't do eBay for this kind of thing.
 
Problem is that I grew up on a mountain in Tennessee, driving on dirt and gravel roads. That’s my background.

The FFB in DR1 wasn’t great, but it was good enough (except on tarmac, where it just plain sucked).

So to hear the FFB is worse in DR2 pretty much kills all my interest. With my personal background, it makes it hard for me to pretend something feels right when it just...doesn’t.

PS - IRL, driving on dirt/gravel is about the most fun you can have with your pants on.
