New Free Roam Options Dilute Player Base
« on: October 21, 2010, 03:54:43 PM »
V1.05 has RUINED RDR for me and alot of other people, the idea was in Free Roam that all of us were in it together.

Player base has been diluted and now it has caused all sorts of problems

I'm not a fan of the idea myself, but I'll withhold judgment on it until I play it for a bit.

I hate it.  I'll continue to grief and even worse now.  I'll go into that friendly free roam and show 'em just how "friendly" I can be.

Isn't the point of Friendly Free Roam that you can't grief? Plus why do you want to make the game suck for players who aren't as good as you....lame.

Surely there's players worthy of your skill that you can go kill instead...

Yeah there are.  I kill them on a regular basis.  The thing is I'm upset about this update.  I think it's useless and I plan on proving that it's useless by griefing in it.  I've heard people in the UK have already been in their griefing and they say it's pretty fun.  I'm not doing this to be mean or rude to people I'm doing this to voice my disdain for the update.  As they say "actions speak louder than words".  So there's no use for me complaining to Rockstar.

I don't understand why people think that others are better or worse at eachother at this game.  There's no skill involved it's auto aim assisted and everyone can use the exact same weapons.  No skill just who locks onto who first.  Either way that's not what this thread is for this isn't a debate on the ethics of griefing.  This is about people disliking how it's splitting everybody up and making free roam deserted.

Don't try to insinuate that someone has poor skills when I'd more than likely bet you wouldn't put your skills to the test against said griefer.

Even though there isn't any skill involved.  I just don't like seeing people try to insinuate all griefers are bad at the game. :@

Not sure if this belongs here or if I'm just drunk...but this morning I was hoping to get some bounty hunters on me but instead I got fed up watching a griefer grief these 3 poor guys for about 15 minutes so I decided to join their posse and protect them.  Turns out my skill was 10 fold better than the griefer and the guys I helped turned out to be awesome dudes.  Permanent friends now.  Good encounter.  Griefers will soon meet  a bullet from my schofield straight to their dome.

i have got to say in my opinion the split sucksi went on for a couple of hours last night in "normal" mode just to try out some of the new hide outs in L&C and got taken down mid shoot out by two different 50 level guys in two different hideouts. bearing in mind that i have only seen about three level 50 players in one free roam at once in all the times i have been doing free roam.
Now any one who wants to grief other players knows exectly where to find people who may not be as high level or as experienced as they are.
Maybe i will start doing hardcore seeing as the wasters will all be in either "Friendly" or "Normal" zones..
 There are two types of people who do not like you that you will meet,
The stupid and the envious. The stupid will like you in five years, the envious never will.

I wondered the same thing.  It looks as if he joined the forum just in time to show his disdain for the 1.05 patch.

I went on this morning (a full day after the first comments about this) and still have not been prompted to download 1.05.

Agreed 100%, ruining RDR by diluting the player base

It's based on the late Wild West, so he can if he wants to. Soon there will be no players around as it's diluting the player base

The difference is it's actually a little bit more fun for the griefer.  It makes us think of new creative ways to grief.  I'm going to grief as a method of protesting.  I'll be in "Friendly" free roam ruining everyones experience until they either take the whole update away or either fix normal free roam.  My problem is that all these little kids can't take getting killed so they whine and cry until Rockstar updates regular free roam with stupid senseless updates that cause you to gain public enemy after a 6 kill streak.  Now that would have been fine and dandy if they didn't split the rooms up.  Now all those crybabies are getting their own room and we get stuck with a bunch of updates we never wanted to begin with.

 Think of it like this.

Normal free roam is basically going to become "PVP" free roam a room where killing eachother is supported and condoned but yet we get penalized for it for obtaining a kill streak yet that's what this room will be for now.  I bet the people in "Friendly" free roam won't get penalized for doing 6 gang hideouts in  a row or picking 6 prairie poppies in a row.  You know why because that's what the room supports and condones.  So why should we be punished for doing something the room condones and not them?  That's why I'll be in "Friendly" free roam griefing people non stop.  Atleast until they fix my free roam or do away with this shit altogether.

How do I need a better way to spend this time?  You play this game too dont you?  Unless you don't play this game you're wasting your time right along with me.  Maybe I find completing challenges and doing gang hideouts a bit repetitive.  I've maxed my level out there isn't really much left for me to do other than pvp and I dislike the restrictions of pvp.  Now I don't see how me wanting them to take an uneeded update away ecspecially seeing as how it's not needed anymore considering all the little "girls" are getting their own free roam qualifies as me needing better ways to spend my time.  But hey whatever you say you real life "horsemen".

I kind of like the 6 kill streak thing now that it's been around a while ... during those free for all battles it's a good reminder to your enemy on whose really kickin whose ass ... I say keep it but I wish it was at 10.

 I think you guys crying over this update are the ones sounding like the whiny crybabies now ...

Look at it this way ... Don't you think it might actually bring more players into the other FR types ?

There will be a lot of players that just completely stayed out of MP Maybe they tried it out and had some circle jerk of grievers killing them before they could even be comfortable with being online .. Don't you think a lot of these ppl may come back and give it another shot ? ... maybe graduate out of the FFR ? You probably never thought about that because it must be all about just you .. If so many requested it then it was obviously a problem .. We wouldn't have had all these ridiculous updates if more ppl played with respect and sportsmanship towards others .... If the griever crowd doesn't like it they have no body to thank but themselves !!
