You guys went from, "Ruthless Gangsters" to "Friendly players" - which is it? The ruthless stuff kept me from joining.


It's just a punch line Romeo. We are friendly too. :)
What did you read in "ruthless"?

Whenever I read something like "ruthless" and "Gangster", I envision a group of 16 year olds, calling each other bitches whilst having one finger on the lag switch or, it's a group that prowls the roam and shoots anything that moves. I play as a Lawman/Marshall or US Army. I'm a good guy. Not a gangster.

Yes, I know now that it is just a tag line used by the good Doctor :-)


Sorry OldBill I'll just reply to Romeo and leave :blush:

I see Romeo. It's funny cause I wanted to use this subtitle instead: "Looking for good and mature players". Which is the subtitle I used in GTAforums for the Turf War Topic I run since 2008. But then I thought that younger people would avoid the topic and I really wanted a wider range of players (not all 16y old are like that).
Anyway in HCW, the majority is quite "old" :D
I used "ruthless" to sort of fit the western theme (+ "WANTED") and Gangsters cause we basically play Gang Matches.
Free Roam is not included in the event. It's all about teamwork and fun. Lawmen are welcome. ;)

Wow...for a second I thought this (and the PSN version) was closed....phew!

I will be making some changes to the Events and MP discussion threads to try and make things a little bit more clear.

The Events threads (both PSN and Xbox) will be just that...for EVENTS only...no MP discussion.  ALL discussion threads in those forums will be moved to THIS forum.

Then, in the MP Discussion Forum (this one), I will pin a thread with links to "ACTIVE" Events from the Events forums.

Look for these changes very soon. :2thumbsup:

And thanks, OldBill, for keeping this Event going. I know it can be frustrating round here sometimes. :)

Count me in.  The last three hardcore free roams that I've been in have been more desolate than Scunthorpe during a world farting convention :huh:

I'd love to play stronghold with a large group on HARDCORE. It's no fun on regular because people are doing casual headshots on you from way across the map. I don't see any fun or satisfaction in killing or being killed that way, yet some people call it "fun" because  they have no skill and the auto-aim is making them feel like winners. What it's really doing is frustrating the hardcore fans that would have played the game long term if it wasn't ruined in the short term by headshot cheating wussies. Read Dead multiplayer is just a waste of time right now. Can't have fun, and can't earn any serious XP .

Oh this post! Yeah I want in on a Hardcore XBL group. I want to play Stronghold on hardcore. That seems like the one that would be most fun on Hardcore. I have some severe Anger Management issue and a bit of Videogame Induced Tourettes. If I get "Expertly Domed" though, I don't get so angry. When playing on Hardcore I'll be relaxed and friendly, but also, DEADLY. :-)

Agree with you here, I don't find it fun either.  The only session we could find was normal stronghold, then we got sick of that and left.

Bill when you get that Playstation mate  add me :)

Last OT and sorry to OldBill as well.

I'm not so up on PVP but this does sound cool. I'll get in touch.

I personally always wonder how hundreds of people visit these forums everyday, yet no one ever joins Tournaments or Posses'?

I am really wanting to develop HC skills further, particularly in FR and stronghold. Stronghold HC is very often deserted.

I searched for a related list, but no luck.

anyone want to get into some HC on xbl?

add: billthebody

and thanks to The Doc for letting me use this:

Yoshack, hopefully we'll get some numbers.

I have just one request for this thread, however. Let's just be positive about wanting to play HC and avoid being negative about normal. Otherwise, I'll end up having to argue with my own recruits ...
