So are the pvp modes still all lumped together?

It's soooo strange that I have about zero desire to even log in to see the updates, like when you have a huge crush on someone and it feels like it's going to last forever and then one day it's just... gone. Not a great feeling, I'm all out of love for RDO... at this point I'm only hoping for some Arthur, Sadie, Charles DLC.
I’m pretty sad about it too.  They really let us down on this one. We waited soooo long too.

For a second there I thought R* nerfed this forum too.

Who is still playing this? Is anybody really expecting them to turn it around?

I haven’t played in several weeks. I get the itch but then I think about fishing season coming up and then I don’t want to get wrapped up in any other additional bad habits.

I’d love to be a fly on rockstars wall right now and see if they are really so oblivious or if they’re sweating bullets trying to translate this lost language we have been apparently speaking for the past 8 years.

Aside from nerfing S&S, here’s a few alternatives I think would improve the situation.

Stop making things so damn expensive. You need to be able to purchase all the things that counteract S&S.  Next they need to improve weapon switching.  Sometimes you run into a S&S user and you need to be able to switch it up, but you can’t because it’s so sluggish.  Also, make it more obvious they are using it. Sometimes it shows above their head and in the radar, but some times it doesn’t at all.  Make the icon more noticeable and consistent.

They won’t do any of this tho.

I like ability cards, but S&S is OP.  And I never say things are OP.  More than being OP tho it’s just killing the game.  It’s taking away skill and gauging a win by how much snake oil you bought.

IMO worse than any missed opportunity and broken feature is the one they designed - slow and steady.

Think back to when they were just rumoring this game.  We said the one thing we loved about the first RDR was the headshot.  Fast forward to now - they have successfully made the headshot pointless.  Any time someone uses S&S, which is more every day, he headshot becomes useless.  Then it just boils down to shotguns and body shots.  The newbie shit we all hated.  Did they ever even play RDR?

You’re not wrong.  It needs a lot of work. I just keep holding out hoping they will wake up.

Slow and steady, never with out one, eye for an eye, unblinking eye.

TBH, the first things they should have done over anything else was add the ability to have private sessions and fix the posse system. Simply being able to have fixed teams each game and having the ability to have private matches would significantly improve replay-ability for those who game with crews.

I want nothing to do with PvP right now, but could be coaxed into lengthy sessions if we could do, say, an RSG vs RRR match.

It absolutely amazes me because a few years ago they started these crews on social club and you can link to your social club, yet they seemingly show no interest in making posses work or crews transferable or anything focuses around them.  Posses and teams are broken, that should be an immediate fix.

What makes it worse is their lack of transparency.  Ok I get that they probably had this in mind for a while now.  So you release an update with no intention of fixing something that you know everyone wants - say so ahead of time. Say THIS is what we have planned, but bear with us we are working on this and this and this is our timeline.  We know it’s an issue.

Instead they ignore the complaints, post general vague statements about fixing things, then release update that fixes nothing.  Rockstar never ceases to boggle my mind.

Be ready to be disappointed...

Gun Rush mode and more coming “this year”

We were all talking about how inactive the sessions are already getting and this update needed to be big...I haven’t played gun rush but without any other adjustments I’m a bit worried.

The mode doesn’t sound like anything spectacular, like more spectating.

One glimmer of hope is it said new showdown modes are coming soon.  Which might mean they will finally separate them?  If they add them more into the same mix it’s going to be annoying.

32 man sessions with 8 teams and 10 active players in a session is broken already.  You can’t hit the whole rotation anymore without people leaving. Most of their points in this link seem to once again be focused on free roam and not pvp.

Another interesting note:

“Proximity-Based Player Blips: Player location blips will soon appear only over short distances, reducing the range at which you are visible to others, decreasing the likelihood of being targeted by another player across large areas. Down the line, we’re also looking to introduce the ability to identify players who grief and kill indiscriminately with a progressively darkening blip that becomes more visible and at a longer range, so everyone in a session can identify potentially dangerous opponents at a glance and from a safe distance”

Not sure if this is in pvp or only free roam, but might be a helpful addition to the radar.  Or at least a sign that they are working on the radar.

Overall it’s not the big fix I think we needed to keep pvp going strong.  I’m still sticking it out for now but I’m not sure where it goes from here.  “More coming this year” is a heart breaking sentence.

If you want to spend all your money you can stay in deadeye as long as you want.  You can take snake oil while still in dead eye and assuming no one manages to kill you, you could hypothetically stay in dead eye the entire match if you were so inclined.  When you consider all the time running and finding someone, I often can go a while on one full dead eye inner and outer core. The biggest hurdle to that goal is dying - the less you die the less deadeye you have to refill.

What bugs me is what bugs brah.  As more people start using S&S, it becomes more about tactically refilling dead eye and less about the headshot.

I’m not gonna pretend I disagree with you.  I just know that his isn’t RDR1 and I’m just gonna make the best of what it is.  I’m mostly enjoying playing with everyone again.  Even seeing faces from years ago in a session is strangely enjoyable.

I know brah, I think that a lot.  Like man this must be what it’s like have kids.  Just walking slowly down the street taking headshots 😂

I honestly hope the nerf slow and steady.  It will be zero fun when everyone figures it out.

Papa Casey Craig and floof and I ended up in a session with no one else tonight and got a second to test out some radar stuff before others joined.

We have confirmed a number of theories involving the radar:  shooting does not cause you to show up.  Spring does not cause you to show up.  Your character looking at someone does not cause them to show up.  Your camera has to see them for them to show up, which confirms my theory about spinning your camera around periodically.   Once you have engaged with them they stay showing up for a short period of time in your vicinity, but in order to initiate them showing up in a standard session (not most wanted where the top player shows up) your camera has to see them. 

Sometimes shooting nearby causes that red flicker of a rash to show up, but it’s not a for sure thing.  I hid behind a mountain and papa was shooting on the other side.  He did not show up, although there was a minor flicker of that rash, but it was super brief so I’m still not sure what causes that specifically.
