Title: Let's get in here and be honest for a minute....
Post by: punteverytime on January 15, 2019, 02:17:51 PM
It sucks doesn't it? This game? They have dropped the ball on the online!!! The new gun rush mode is wretched, it's like...hey R* "would you all do this and this and fix this and this??" They say..."sounds good, here is Gun Rush!!! It's like Fortnite!!! You all will love it!!" Us: But.."you all didn't fix anything?" R*: "Didn't you HEAR US??!! IT'S LIKE FORTNITE!! You'll LOVE it!!" By the time they get around to some new updates...there won't be anyone left!! Played with the same randoms the last few days. Never fear though...got some new clothes and emotes on the way!! I know...beta beta beta beta!! That's bullshit! I'm giving it 2 more weeks then I will build me a cabin and retire in Tall Trees for good!

I am just sitting waiting anxiously for free roam activities,  there must be a career to it, of what we can strive to build.  Like in GTA.

other wise...… what's the point?



I don't  care for shootouts and competitive game modes,  after getting home from work.   I just want to chill out, that's why I love GTA or RDR...…. free roam.

I've already been brutally honest about RDO.  I'm afraid to talk about it any more for fear of sounding like a broken record!  But, since you brought it up and for the sake of conversation....here is some more brutal honesty.....

How could they make such a masterpiece out of the story mode and turn around and release that garbage they are calling RDO....well they got the dead part right. There was way more stuff to do when GTAV Online first came out than this disaster. They did eventually fix the initial server problems of people not being able to get into that first race...and everything was good after that. I'd like to see stats of how many people were playing GTAV Online 2 or 3 months after release compared to RDO.

Rockstar said something like they can't come up with ideas for online since that Leslie guy is gone. He was the mastermind behind all of GTAV Online's success they said. THAT DOES NOT MAKE ANY SENSE when they have their example for ideas right in front of them. Use GTAV's online money making businesses and property ownership, more different types of missions that can be completed solo or with your friends and how about the incentive to actually WANT to play the game! Why can't we steal, keep or sell horses and wagons? That's a pretty basic way to make money and that can't possibly be hard to include in the game when it's already in story mode.  There is nothing that makes any sense out of this game at all.

And don't get me started about PvP! Earlier today I played on a different account where I am only a level 7. I went into the showdown series so I could just get the couple of easy achievements......yea, riiiiight! It would really be nice if they put same-level players in any given match. All a low level is is target practice for higher levels...especially when they have all the fancy cards and you have NOTHING!!!!  THAT is not fair!  I thought PvP was difficult in the first RDR...I was never brave enough to tackle it when I first played it. Now?  It's like a walk in the park compared to RDR2. At least you had a fair chance no matter what level you were.  This game is catered only to those who live for PvP....and there's nothing wrong with enjoying PvP....I just wish that they had more things to do for every type of gamer. You know, so we can all have choices!

I do have a question for the higher level players.....I don't know how high the levels go. Someone said maybe 200? But, my question is....when you reach your high level, have unlocked everything, bought all your guns, horses, clothes and fancy cards, what are you going to do next? How about slowing down a little because you will have nothing left to do and at the rate of how things are going with this beta and no sign of real updates....you are going to be bored real quick! What's the rush?

I really, really want to enjoy this game so much...it's beautiful and I love all the customizations. (I LOVE my new Arabian horse!) I just wish it was more enjoyable for me...and I know that there are many others who feel the same. I see it all over social media. I honestly hope that Rockstar does something very soon.

I think gun rush is completely unrelated to any bug / current content fixes.  It's not as simple as saying " they did this instead of that", it was clearly already on the way independent of other things.

I wish they would have released it not in beta form, but whatcha gonna do?  Multiplayer games in general and free roam games in particular have soooo many variables, that when you miss the mark you can really really miss the mark.  Compounding the problem is Rockstars well-established pattern of being tight-lipped.  I don't think that serves them as well as it used to.  So much good will could be gained by some transparency.

Spot on floof. If the plan is to, say, add private sessions in 1 month, 6 months, 2 years, never... tell us. If they are working on fixes for spawn points gives us a general time frame for implementation. Or if the game is what it is and all they are going to do is just add content then come clean and gives us all a heads up. This isn't Fallout 76 (from what I hear), but this is quickly heading in a similar direction. Honesty and transparency would go a long long way.

I haven't turned on RDO in over a month. Single player still holds my interest, but RDO is dead for me.

And it might be time for some real talk. Take a look at this forum. Are there any new forum members? Has activity picked up like many of us had expected (hoped)? A few of us came back, but still so many former regulars just aren't motivated to post anymore. RDO has been, to this point, a monumental failure. I thought GTAV PvP was poor. I couldn't believe how bad it was. RDR was soo good I just assumed devs would use that as their starting point. But when they went in a completely different direction it blew my mind. GTAV's saving grace is that online had a ton of other things to do by yourself or with your crew. Max Payne PvP felt better than GTAV, but for me it was still poor. New players had NO SHOT against people who had ample time to level up and acquire high powered load outs. And now RDO. The entire experience, at best, is "blah." But often very frustrating and very unrewarding. Using the term "Beta" is a massive cop-out. At this point very little can be done to change the feel of the game. What we have is essentially what we will be getting. Adding content won't save this thing. It needs an overhaul. A complete overhaul.

Rockstar need to fire ANYONE/EVERYONE connected to the decision making portion of RDO. IMO, it's that bad.

Soooo, RDR3 coming to an XboxTWO in 2026? Can't wait......

I’m sorry to hear a fan of the series has become this disenchanted with RDO, you are far from the only player to ‘hang up their spurs’  but at the risk of sounding like a foolish optimist all is not lost, we have be gathering a fairly large group of people in our party chats, Facebook messenger, WhatsApp , and even Instagram, yes the forum is very quiet but there is a fairly thriving community that seem to be using other methods of communication , we have been trying to funnel them to this forum with very limited success.
Not to sound contrary Jester I have become more accustomed to RDR2, I agree that the foundation for a great experience was in R*’s lap , they had an excellent gameplay system to export to their new engine, but opted for a total overhaul and in fact seemed to base the gameplay on GTAV (which I was never a big fan of).
My point being, it’s not perfect, yet I am still personally finding enjoyment, mainly it has to be said because of the group of regular players I see, if I was a lone wolf I would forget about this game so fast

The bottom line for me is that the first game had multiplayer so good that I couldn’t get enough and this game is so mediocre that after an hour I’m losing interest. The thing is that playing with friends is great, but everyone could sit around a folding table and play euchre and have a hell of a time without praising the build quality of the table or the printing on the playing cards. To be more positive I’d say the world built by Rockstar is a masterpiece and the bedrock of everything. For me it’s weak in gunplay, map choice/design and game modes. Gunplay is the most vague and hard to change, so that’s probably not going to change. Map choice can improve and there’s some hope there. Modes are the easiest fix and I’m sure we’ll get more. They can call it a beta for years, but that’s irrelevant to me. I expect updates and for broken aspects of the game to be fixed going forward in any online game. Other “finished” games do it and they have a fraction of the war chest that Rockstar has. Zero sympathy. Regarding PVP popularity, just look at a general forum like Reddit. The RDR sub has a ton of members and any posts even mentioning PVP are scarce. It’s just a small part of the larger multiplayer which is a part of the larger game. It’s what many of us love (or want to love) and I believe it’s just wishful thinking that it will get the attention we think it deserves.

I do hope and think it will improve, but it has a long way to go to be half as compelling as the first game’s online play.

There will be testing for another month yet, so don’t expect big stuff coming.

Read it in a statement somewhere.... twitter post I think.

I know exactly why, too. And I will explain it because there was something I forgot to mention in my other post.

Ok, yes...they are going to update and add more content to the game....we just have to wait and see what it is and they will tell us on their own terms. That I know to be true. I might be a little hasty in calling the game total garbage.  I am sure that more great things are ahead....I hope.  What scares me is that some people say that they won't add private sessions...what you see is how the game is going to be from here on out with only the addition of more content.  That's really my biggest gripe is not having private/invite only sessions. I'm disappointed and angry.

Going back to my explanation of why I think the PvP popularity is down is that not everyone has the desire to play PvP all day and night.  I see tons of posts on Twitter from people who have invited a bunch of people to online meetups...not for PvP...but creative FUN events!  Someone had a jousting competition. Another had a meetup to glitch over to Guarma. And I'm not talking about just 8 or 10 players....there are 20 - 30 people who come to these type of events!  THAT'S amazing!!!! That's what I want to do and, damn it, I'm jealous! LOL!

What happened to all the fun and creative things this forum used to do?  I remember reading about or seeing videos of you guys doing stagecoach boating, shotgun house, knife/fist fighting tournaments, racing in free roam, glitching off the map, rooftopping and a bunch of other crazy fun random things. Who came up with those ideas? And where are they now? Yea, yea...don't tell me to "stop living in the past"!  We could still do all that (with the exception of stagecoach boating, unfortunately was a bust) and MORE in this game.  Why not? A private session would make doing some events easier, of course. But maybe having to do these things in a public session would attract people to want to join in the fun!

No time for hijinks and fun! You can’t fall behind what the top players have. I think that having an “economy” in the game has made it into a rat race. People worry about being productive and earning money, gold, and levels to unlock and pay for clothing, guns, cards and horses so they will at some point have a complete character. Hey, don’t forget to earn enough money for your recipes and ammo and the best items for your cores either. Contrast this with the first game. Steal good horse, complete a gang hideout to get a decent gun- boom, you’re the equal of any other player. Simpler times.

I'll be as raw as possible. I was addicted to RDR 1 multiplayer, i snorted it like the worst junkie in your block. I could've played Hold Your Own in Tesoro Azul for days.

Now, i just log on, play for an hour just for the sake of it, log off. Alphaphug said it right: "gunplay, map choice/design and game modes.". They suck. And when i see how slow my character and weapon wheel is, i throw up.

My prediction for the next Red Dead: they will make it single player only.
I don't bother with the online. Just started replaying the story mode. Chapter 2 and I already have all the satchels and the best horses. It's more fun now that I don't rush through.

Daddy always said stick with what you know, gang shoot out was the only game mode I played for months till I felt brave enough to venture out to the other modes and it was some of the best crack I ever been hooked on, the different aim modes Dead eye or no Dead eye, I mean how could you fuck that up it was golden!

And taking away the jump was just head up the bum stupid and John can't swim a lick.

And rolling!  Why in the world did they take away the combat roll and replace it with that stupid dive-dodge that takes forever to get up from.  The roll was so satisfying! It's even great in GTAV!  The emotes take too long to get to ( I always forget the buttons anyways). The one button taunts were the best!

And poor John....I know right! They just had to keep that consistency with him not being able to swim after we were all happy to see that you could swim in this game!

I completely agree!!

I SMH when some squeaker messages me and says "Git gud" or some crap like that.  I cant even change the settings of messaging because then I can't message friends etc  (whip)
Yeah whatever, get good in a game where everything is done for them (auto-aim, ability cards and deadeye), short of getting their (_)_) wiped, and they want you to check out their "skillz"  (whip)

Sick of being disconnected, sick of griefers, sick of alot of things.

If it wasn't for playing with friends (RRR and others) I made here, I wouldn't bother playing this game and go back to Dayz Mod

Rockstar needs to get their shit together!

I forgot to add:

Private Lobbies, Free Aim lobbies, Heists or bank robberies, anti griefing measures (needed now, not later) and many more that the player base has asked for, but all they give us is a crumb, a crappy mode called Gun Rush.  Should rename it to Camp Rush, or Bum Rush  (sleep)

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?

Post by: outlawfisherman on January 19, 2019, 08:41:00 PM
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.

I don't know I get head shotted all the time.  :)

Seriously though, I am willing to bet they increase the effect of the other ability cards.  If people were using others it would add a chess-like element to the game.
I don't hate slow and steady, because it is available early. 

In a nutshell, I see S&S in a similar light to the Varmint Rifle don't nerf them, fix the other things.

Word to all yalls opinions, I agree with everyone. However, the game has grown on me big time.I reckon i wouldnt be level 128 if it hasnt grown on me 😂 Maybe because im such a huge red dead and wild west fan has me acting like a noob. But just give me private sessions and +10 more pvp maps and poker and i be G2G. But for real, minus the game growing on me; i feel, value, and agree with all opinions. This slow n steady is getting sad. I have to say, they could have left the ability cards out, it really hampers the true skill of the gamer. When they give us private sessions, im down for all of us going into matches without no ability cards, that will be fun.

Sorry for not being on the forums as much as im playin the game. Mine and Casteyn's love for each other keeps me very very very busy and extremely happy. Got to love whatsapp. Our wedding will be in tombstone Arizona, the famous wild west town if yall want invites 😎

Damn I love that woman so much, have since RDR1. Casteyn's a sexy and beautiful mother fuckin bad ass. Word 😎

Peace, love, liberty, and unity bitches! And Fuck Tall Trees ✊🏻

Word 🤠

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.

Yeah, the old weapon wheel was perfect. We could roll while changing weapons and all kinds of good stuff!
 
Oh, and everyone stay tuned for my post in the "tips" thread, or hell, I may just start a new thread on the topic. I think I may have found a small gem for everyone! Although, it's not really a tip-- Or is it??? lol

Anyway, I will post later after I grind-- I mean, play RDO!

It's in a really bad spot right now IMO. The free roam is just boring. The free roam missions (when they actually work, which isn't often) are repetitive and dumb. The hideouts never spawn and when they do, they aren't worth doing. I've done probably 40 hideouts and found one map!! Oh look...got 13 cents off that guy!! Those are the reasons that griefing has become a problem in free roam because there literally isn't anything to do. The gunplay is so clunky!! Dirty made a good comment the other day...he said "he's not sure that they could even add free aim, the aiming is already so clunky that you probably couldn't hit anything". The PvP is awful now because of the "God" build. Guys stay in dead eye the whole match just cutting people in half. Played against a guy the other day that got 38 kills in the shoot out at the docks!! 38-1!!! Any of you that has played that map knows that's absurd! Lower level players know they need not venture into a PvP because you'll just get melted. That's why I hear and run into the same fools almost every other day. Alphapug said it absolutely the best..."there isn't anytime for hi-jinks...it's nothing but a rat race"...you have to grind (and grind hard) in order to be competitive or hell just stay alive for more than 20 seconds!

Aside from the grinding, I think the game caters to casuals. SaS comes to mind here.

Free roam is boring. And the showdown matches are a mixed bag of nuts when it comes to the modes/matches. You wanna play with friends on the same team? Sure, just not this match because you're doing a free for all or most wanted. You don't wanna play those? Sorry, no option to skip map... Give us money for gold now!

Kinda hard to get competitive with friends versus other groups when you're forced into free for alls. I find myself just playing this game casually, as oppose to really playing hard and wanting to win. When there's nothing at stake competitive wise, there's no reason to really care about winning. I'm not sure if that makes any sense or not? lol   

Although, I'm hoping the next update will be better. But then again, I can hope all I want...

I get what you're saying, Coyote....but, I think it all depends on each individual's playing style.  If you are geared more towards the competitive PvP side...I can see how disappointing it is that you can't choose the mode you want to play. The little time I spent in PvP earlier on I remember not liking that either.  They really need to better organize those Series modes for you guys that enjoy PvP.

On the flip-side, someone like me who would rather play solo or PvE, I think the game caters more to those who like competition and PvP modes only...even in free roam. To me, the game is forcing you to be competitive.  Personally, I don't like that.  For example, me and a friend had just got done completing a story mission...we both loaded into the same free roam session and we weren't in there 2 minutes when we got attacked by a posse of 4...we were marked for assassination! I've never heard of this free roam activity!  Both of us survived and won the mission.....but, that posse wasn't happy with that and continued to attack us. My friend is a level 60, so he held is own...me on the other hand, a little nooby 27, was being killed over and over again by a level 71.  How is that fun? I guess you could say, well...level up and get good.  I don't want to be forced into something I don't want to do. I hated EVERY minute of that free roam thing/whatever it was.  I would have left the session if it wasn't for staying with my friend. That is why I want private sessions so badly.

For shits and giggles we should get a group together to play the 1st game some weekend. My PS3 is still hooked up and ready. On the Xbox side, don’t forget that all it takes is putting your old 360 disc in the X1 and waiting for it to download. Even better, if you ever bought the digital version, just look in your game section under “ready to install.” Easy Peasy. Might be fun to play some hold your own. And if you have an X, this is a must.

I still have my 360 and my RDR 360 discs even though I have it on the One. I like how it plays on the 360 better.....I find that it's too laggy when playing on the One. And if I get frozen in a session (yes, they still do that shit) I don't want it to mess up my One.

I'm up for a free roam session....maybe some rooftopping and boating?

Does anyone know if public free roam is working ok?

I would be down for this. Granted, I have RDR 2 on both PS4 and XBOX 1, but play only on PS4 (I will not start the grind over on xbox. lol), however, I believe my kids downloaded RDR 1 to the xbox 1 a few years ago, only If I remember right they removed it from the hard drive to make space. I could download it again and play with you all, but I would have to get the wife's permission, seeing as it would take up space on her's and the kid's xbox 1. 

Also, I promise not to camp! That is, unless someone camps me first!  ;)

Would love to see AC return to it's multiplayer component, was a really amazing multiplayer component IMO
Haven't really played RDO since Christmas, been a big let down. Was meant to play with a handful of friends, but they hardly ever play the game either.
I always did well enough in PVP, but never really considered it particularly fun.There was no moment when I got really into, or when the matches started feeling really intense and competitive like RDR 1. Don't really see how they could fix this, unless they add the RDR1 game modes, and decreasing the map size. Game modes like Gun Rush, Name Your Weapon, Make it Count need to be scrapped. Also think the game modes with more than two teams need to be scrapped.

Alphapug mentioned it earlier on in this thread I think, but would be pretty cool if we organised and RDR1 reunion, or tried get that going again. Would happily hook up the old 360 if we could organise it.
Title: Re: Let's get in here and be honest for a minute....
Post by: Mrs Marston on January 31, 2019, 12:29:40 PM
I only play RDO when I get invites....which is rare anymore since most my friends have quit playing for the same reasons mentioned here.  Recently friended someone who knows how to glitch off the map and get to Mexico and Guarma.  It's pretty sad that the only interesting thing to do on RDO is glitching off the map!  Btw, Guarma is beautiful!  If you haven't been there yet...you need to go before they patch it. It is kinda time consuming to get there, but if you have a bunch of friends with you it makes the long trip fun and there's some things to see along the way. I've also glitched to "Canada" which doesn't take as long.

I think it would be cool if we did a RDR1 reunion, too!  I'm up for that! I have RDR1 on both the 360 and the One. Where do you think is the best place to let people know something like this is going on other than this forum or Xbox/PS4.  It's really a shame that some people that were here during the hype before RDR2 was released are not coming here anymore because of RDO's disappointments. Do people know that we also have Facebook, Twitter, Discord and the social club to organize meetups?  I'd like to get together as friends no matter what posse you belong to...no competitions....just socializing and having fun.

And now on RDO everywhere session is full, but no one interacts. Online gaming has become unsocial able now.

Tired of Pinky gang, Lonesome cowboys, Hell hounds, etc. It's not a groundbreaking concept, colours are too similar, so much confusion. If there's gonna be a preset gangs for various modes why not using something that worked well before. For example: Rebeldes, American Army, Cattle Rustlers, Walton's Gang, Dutch's gang. Just food for thought. We could have similar concept in RDR2: Skinners, Murfree Brood, Del Lobos, etc. Much, much better and realistic than this current solution.

I would gladly meet up on RDR1, but as I see, no one is interested. I remember we tried getting together a while back on RDR1, but again...no interest.  So, if no one was interested before RDR2....I don't see how it would be possible now.  It's sad to see so many turn away from RDO now (for whatever reason). Never expected this in a million years! Here I thought that this would be the only online game I would be playing for the next couple of years. Wow, was I wrong!

And as Ferg said....online gaming HAS become unsociable.  That's because hardly anyone wants to play just to have fun and do creative, crazy things (there's sooo much potential in RDO for this to happen)...most are too busy being competitive and trash talking each other. That's not fun in my opinion. That makes people hide in parties or not talk/text at all. Because now if you say something a little off people are too quick to report you for the littlest of remarks.

If it wasn't for story mode, the beautiful graphics, horses and a few other things...I would have deleted this game off my hard drive.

It never lets me have any fun...some guy named Bill gets all our hard earned money. We wait all year right about this time for our tax refund money....but we still can't even do anything fun with that. Last year, when we got our refund, our water heater broke...so, there goes that! Wonder what it will be this year? I know it won't be a PS4 and sub to go with it.

Anyhooo, enough about that boring stuff.

What I wanted to say in this thread is an apology for my negative posts about RDR Online.  I don't mean to come across as negative and nit-picky and I sure don't want to make a bad impression about the game to any newcomers to the forum. That's not right....I'm sorry. I had my own expectations about online and what I thought it was going to be like and when I found out it wasn't....I was mad and disappointed. I know that others feel the same way but are trying to make the best of it. I should try harder to do the same. Deep down inside, I hope that Rockstar makes improvements and we know that they will definitely add more updates/features/content to make the game more interesting. I just gotta be more patient I guess. Thanks for hearing me out and I will try to be more positive about the game.

PVP in general, just like Showdown modes are a travesty of epic proportions. There's no words in Elvish, Entish, or the tongues of Men to express how much i dislike it. I hate it but i'll keep playing it cause i need to believe it can get better, i wanna live in a world where this monumental Rockstar title get's his groove back. It baffles me why they decided to make it a GTA with horses instead of a western game. They made a western multiplayer 8 years ago which everyone loved so why not replicate the formula.

It's like watching Walking Dead all over again: Rick leaves(Hold your own, Grab the bag Gang Shootout in RDR1 style) and Daryl became the face of the series(Make it Count, Gun Rush, everything in Tall Trees).

 

While suffering through RDR2, with melancholia i cherish the memory of the best PVP concept Rockstar implemented.

Ark has pvp free servers on console as well. Great feature. And a great game overall I think. 

This outlaws of the old west has me intrigued. Early access starts March 12. I’m thinking about giving it a go myself. And while I am still having fun playing red dead online...they really need to get their shit together and make the game hat it was promised to be in the first place.  All the stuff that has been datamined should have been released already. But it’s not even in this update.  I don’t know what they are thinking.  They’re definitely not listening.

What they need to add is private/invite only sessions!  I keep hearing hints and rumors and I hope they are true! That's THE only thing that will open up creative things to do with friends without griefers ruining your activities. The addition of Rockstar Editor to story and/or online would be great along with a good photo mode!

It's really a shame that they didn't include private sessions from the start...maybe so many people wouldn't have dropped online.

Sile, I really don't like grinding all that much either, it gets so boring after a while! All that work you have to do for the trader role...hunting, getting supplies and waiting for the product to build up only to have it destroyed in a matter of minutes by some tryhard!  I think you would like the collector role (that's my favorite) you can collect items as you go or follow a map (online). You can sell them individually or in collections. It's a really fast way to rank up and make good money with little effort! If you get shot by a griefer while doing it, they can't steal your stuff you collected.

That’s the reason I haven’t played online in months. I’m not about the grinding, I ain’t never been about no grinding.

I have seen you in the club Sile, don't lie to us.

Just how much has Red Dead lifestyle changed?

RDR1 was all about the fun....... glitching, stagecoach madness,  wallbreaching in locked building,  breaking the games boundary, free roam posse wars.



RDR2....... grinding grinding grinding money.



Weren't those just the best!?!? Now, it's all grind. I remember posse wars against 10 MEXICAN_LOCOS guys (there is a blast from the past, remember those dudes? LOL) I don't play much anymore however I did do some of the new role missions. Just not the same game anymore in any way. Guess I'll take this wagon somewhere across the damn map for Cripps....Ahhhhhh hell....a posse of 7 guys robbed me again!!! One of them killed me with what I'm guessing to be a rocket launcher because I exploded. Don't remember people having those in the late 1800's. Better luck next time I guess. Hope everyone is doing well.

Hi, punt...glad to see you stop by!

Yea, there's explosive ammo and arrows in RDO...same as the old boomstick in RDR1!  People love to grief with that, but I only use it for protection on delivery runs or while I'm doing my collectibles.  Hope you are doing well, too!

Hello and Happy 2020 to one and y'all. I sure miss when this forum was active and what not not alas it seems the forum Style/ message board isn’t as popular now with the likes of discord taking over.

Anyway, I have officially quit RDR2. It had become too much of a repetitive grind, and the PvP is broken as most of the lobbies are empty, sorry to sound so negative folks, I have moved to Gears of War 5 if anyone wants to play hit me up.

I will not deny that RDO has been broken from the start! The addition of microtransactions and Rockstar pushing gold purchases are not what everyone wanted and turned many players away...which was very disappointing and unfortunate.  I admit I have been very negative about online for a long time...but, deep down I am still hoping it can make a turnaround.  RDO has SO MUCH potential for being the game everyone loves!  The roles have been a big improvement. Yes, it is a big grind...but what game isn't? Yea, some games are more grindy than others and RDO is right there at the top. I usually give RDO a break to play other games like GTAV and I am totally enjoying Death Stranding...I play some silly mindless games like Goat Simulator and My Friend Pedro. Then I can go back to RDO for a fresh start again.

I don't know how long RDO will last as far as keeping the player's interest with new things. How much more wild west stuff can they add?  I doubt it will outlast the popularity of GTAV Online, but I hope more good things are ahead. Personally, I continue my grind with making money and gold because I think (I hope) more big things will be added to purchase. (As I've said before, collecting is THE BEST way to make money fast!)  Give it time.....the game's only been out for a little over a year.

And, I agree the decline in activity here at the forums is unfortunate. Things happen, people move on to other things or just...life happens. I have found Twitter to have a great RDR community and you even get to interact with some of the voice actors from the RDR2 story. Pretty cool!

Why is everything got a price tag on, RDR1 was unlock as we progress...... all we had to do is spend a few hours grinding "pikes basin" or the short quicky "twin rocks"

then we can ride about chilling, have a free roam shootout at Macfarlanes ranch, grab a stagecoach (you know the drill)  sit on a couple of rooftops, wall breaching into detailed buildings with interiors.
