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.

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.

Nice haul. A loot crate of RDR stuff would be cool. I got the fallout crate series and was pretty happy with it. It was worth it just for the hoodie with “Tunnel Snakes-Capital Wasteland” on the back. Not many games would get me to open my wallet, but RDR would.

Rocket League has joined the party, and parties are coming soon as well. If you haven’t tried it it’s a lot of fun. Maybe at the point when you can get in a cross platform party we could have a friendly match. It was free on ps+ and it’s in game pass, so I can play on either to be the odd man out for the novelty of it. My name is the same on both so I might join my own party and take a screenshot and we can all marvel at seeing the word Alphapug twice.

Waiting for sandwiches at Panera Bread and there were a couple of Harleys outside and a couple of bikers inside. One walked past and had a “GUNSLINGER” patch on his leathers. I was half tempted to ask him about it. 😆 Most bikers I’ve talked to have been super nice guys, but I declined this time.

Shit, I forgot about that one. The thing is that the PVP games are just a small part of the MP game, which is just a part of the whole game. It’s the part we all like, but plenty of players never even dip a toe. I just don’t think they put much focus on it. The free roam world is more of a concern for them.

I’ll give it a whirl tonight. I’m not amazing at PUBG, but I’ve run over, um, I mean skillfully shot a few fellows there. So is it similar in that you spawn with no weapons? I hope so. Or maybe a pistol.

Dude, I ain't good at pubg either. Granted, I've only had it a couple weeks and have not really played too much, but yeah, I'm a scrub too! lol

However, I'm alright at RDR 2 and so far have won 2 out of the 2 matches I played  in team gun rush with 4 kills or more. So I think you'll do good, especially if you have a team to communicate with.


I got it free on Xbox, but I have a coupon to make it only $24 on PS4, so I might get it there too. It is a fun game. I know people love to hate on it, but it does have a nice tension to it.

Re:crews MP3 was nice and simple. Crew members placed on the same team. Killing enemy crews would start a feud between crews which was simply kills recorded. Winning crew got some bonus XP, losing crew got a bit less bonus XP.

I think the problem with maps is that most stink for the game type. Zero effort was made. Tall trees, strawberry, St. Denis? Throw some spawn points in, DONE! What’s next boss?

If they blocked off a section of St. Denis and it was knives only in the tight streets and alleys it would be like heaven. There’s no equivalent to Tesoro Azul or Las Hermanas this time. Even Max Payne 3 altered the maps to create fun arenas. RDR2 has no thought put into the maps. Like they threw darts at the world map.

OK, here’s some hate mail for the wrong game to keep this thread on track.

The problem with the PUBG style game is our amazing social skills. We often play in a group, which is great, except in last cowboy standing matches. When you’re a lonely boy it’s perfect. Play until you die, jump to a new session and in 1 minute you’re parachuting down. With friends you have to wait until they’re all dead! 😆

I think the main issue is that PVP balance is not on Rockstar’s radar at all. Savvy players will always exploit advantages in games. It’s up to the developer to notice these advantages and determine what should be done. Some are left in because it requires skill, some are patched out because they’re cheap exploits. Believe it or not, other games are tinkered with all the time because weapon A is used in 75% of all kills, or the team spawning on the hill wins 62% of the time or one spawn is always getting camped by long range weapons they’ll place trees in front or similar. I’ve seen no evidence that Rockstar devs have ever changed things in PVP for any reason. I think the weapons were made for single player and if they heard that the varmint is king the reaction would be a shrug. The first game was great because of set load outs plus pickups. I’m still hoping we’ll be able to create custom matches.

Inhuman Triphixa and I had some excellent close matches Sunday. We won our first 4 or 5 and when we lost it was because the other team used a strategy which caught us off guard. Our team didn’t adapt and we lost decisively. It wasn’t RDO, but I did see a tumbleweed or two roll by.

Have some god damn faith you bunch of Arthurs! Rockstar just announced a brand new most wanted map: “Lofty Vertical Logs” Now buy some gold bars to celebrate.
