Red Dead Online / Re: The new update..!
« on: March 22, 2019, 07:15:17 PM »
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 too cheap to spend the $200 ...

Can't wait to level up enough to get that fast travel option for my camp!

The fast travel is just a post.  You still have to pay every time you use it, and fast travel to camp is the most expensive destination.  Terrible design choice.

Populated, and way better than I left it a few years ago.

No broken matches or free roam session for us.  A little lag in pvp, couple small teleports and an occasional double-roll from opponent.

Free roam seemed full of mostly new players, but we didn't spend much time there.

Definitely fun!  Couple PvP matches, couple gang hideouts, couple co-op missions. 

Sorry for not reviving better in co-op, I'll be more attentive in the future  ;D

I feel ya lemon, but I have a red dead itch that has to be scratched even if it is just infrequently.

Re: cards/deadeye/tonics, the aiming mechanics are such that when you're deadeye core is drained aiming is so unresponsive, even free aim becomes more difficult.  Add to it the fact that taking damage makes the reticle dance the jig when not in deadeye... and it becomes very difficult to play with any consistency.  All the variables are working against you.  Unless, of course you drink tonics.

Throw all that in a blender with abysmal spawns, poor level design, random/unbalanced card interactions, huge player level/equipment/wealth disparity (even ammo type needs consideration), and you have a great big shit smoothie.

If it was ALL balanced it could be fun, in a chess match sort of way, but it's not.

Don't get me started on limited, under-developed game modes, posse splitting, and a 'series' format that forces you into games you do not want to play, surprise loadout changes, buying ammo between matches, zero incentive to play the objective vs. getting the most kills, etc...

Maybe I'm just older and grumpier than my rdr1 self  :o

 :'( Yeah, I didn't realize just how important some of those nuances were at the time.   C'est la vie...

It's got me thinking about some other unique mp experiences that got mangled... Some of the early Assassin's Creed multiplayer stuff was awesome and truly unique.

If we at least get some RDR1 style co-op I will be much happier, the PvP imbalance is here to stay it would appear

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.

Well, in fairness, survival mode does solve the shitty spawn issue  ;)

I've cleared 89 hideouts, according to the buckle tracker and gotten 3 treasure maps total.  Fwiw.

I still like doing them, but stopped trying to farm them.

I used to golf a lot...
My saying to myself when the pressure is on is What would Tiger Woods Do? :D  I always wanted to get one of those wristbands made with WWTWD instead of WWJD.

Papabear and Craigyroo were kicking some tail yesterday, it was fun to watch!  Good playing guys.

Essentially slow and steady removes the headshot 'bonus damage'.  It definitely breaks the varmint rifle, but you can still be one-shot with a shotgun for example.

That card combination is slow and steady, eye for an eye(gives deadeye when you headshot), and unblinking eye (slows the rate deadeye and eagle eye degrade).  Fourth card optional.

I use it.  To do meal preps and set outfits mostly.  So not everyday but every once in a while it's nice.  If only Cripps would leave it where I PAID to place it.  Bastard keeps moving it.

I wish the kills were just pvp kills.  They even include deer.

Yeah I usually avoid using music because everyone has their own preference.  I prefer country but no one would enjoy that.

Well, shit.

Not sure about the music , but good play fisherman.


This was a cool moment, lucky dive timing a hail of bullets goes over my head, then my teammate draws fire, I get them all then 1 more for five thousandth kill  (whip)

Found out you can catch sturgeon right off the shore next to the butcher in blackwater.  $7.25 apiece and you can sell them right there, no transportation risks (as long as no one is griefing you while you fish)

Red Dead Online / Re: I need help with PvP
« on: December 17, 2018, 02:47:30 AM »
I played quite a few PVP matches this weekend and met with limited success.  :/

I am improving, but not at the rate I'd like. 

I may have pinpointed a few problems.
Does anyone know of a way to turn around quickly in PVP?  It would be helpful at spawn points.  :(
Has anyone found a way to win wrestling matches in PVP?
Does anyone have an opinion on the Ability Card Slow and Steady vs Paint It Black for PVP?

Thanks!

Slow and steady is the best ability card available imo, I wasn't a believer until I tried it myself, but it's not perfect.  If it does fit your playstyle though , you will enjoy it.   I will probably alternate between that and paint it black for given situations, but it's definitely staying in most cases.  It breaks the varmint rifle which makes me happy.
