At this moment rallycross in this game is not available online, but it's coming very soon (before September). I have no idea if online would be good, but I'm really enjoying the handling of the cars and think it would make for some really fun racing.

This is not meant as a hardcore league, I just think it would be a lot of fun! :)

Dirt Rally rallycross online is now updated to the game.

I drove it for quite a few hours today.

Online worked surprisingly good, not a huge amount of problems with lag, definitely league-ready.

You can be a total of 8 people in one lobby. The game then makes 2 races out of that with 4 people in both races. Would take long to explain it in detail but if you play the game it's quite obvious.

As long as there's no more people than 8 there's no problem in running a league. with more people you could just have a split 1 and 2 system like any other league on the website. (maybe you could even have 2 groups of 8 with top 4 in every group making it to the final with the 8 best people.)

Hopefully there are more people who enjoy the experience and would be interested in a league. Sadly only 3 difference places atm. Maybe not a bad thing for starters as a season would be very short, so people can actually do a whole season without losing motivation.

Cons: doesn't seem to be possible to make private lobby or even invite (correct if I'm wrong). It would still be possible to race as the host can kick random people joining. I don't think people can join when event is started. (once again, could be wrong). Anyway, being 8 people would make the lobby full, so other people can't join.

tried it for 2hours now, rallycross is really fun. But seriously, do i really need to play careermode with all racing that im not interested in to unlock rallycrosscars? Just to play online?

you can buy a rallycross with credits and play online, if you don't have a lot of credits you can rent a car pretty cheap!

Just wanted to make a short comment!

I'm not gonna host a dirt rallycross league, I feel there's not enought interest and would be unnecssary time put into organizing it. Also, if you do the career mode your car will get faster, this means you have to do a lot of career mode to be competitive in the league. Details like this has lost my interest of hosting a league. Anywone else is allowed to take over if they like! :)

I still haven't tried DiRT Rally Online, but just the idea doesn't look right to me for now, but I'm definitively interested if there's more tracks! I haven't played it a lot, but it looks really fun and because it's RallyCross, an hour of practice is enough and racing is really fun and there's no limits!
