This event will be a beta event lol. Still not 100% sure how it'll work. Glad you got a new TV. We're gonna have to play some RDO then Star Wars and WWE soon too.

 

I'll be on around 8:30 EST tonight if anybody wants to group up again.

Im in if im invited. Ive had mixed feelings with the beta. It feels more of a grind but the story missions are fun. I dont feel connected to my character yet like I do with my gta one. Only been killed once so thats a good start. Just my experiences so far.

I don't think it's a grind as much as just the economy being f*cked big time.

 

Of course you're welcome to come. Speaking of though, out of consideration to those having connection issues; I gotta push the event back a week. First few days were great, but people are definitely having issues now that beta is public.

To me, a grind is precisely that. It's just not a healthy grind at this stage because like you said, the economy of it is sh*te--and at points, it makes no sense whatsoever. Thing is, RDR is not GTA, so you can't just roll out a supercar or a flying motorcycle every six months to keep people grinding. I think R* realizes this, and has tried to find a way to monetize the game along lines that will impose longevity and build profit, but you just can't do it that way. At all. Especially with how much everything adds up to in terms of basic supplies for characters and their horses, and camp fees. It's completely arbitrary and vastly overdone, and much of it just doesn't translate well to the kind of experience people want.

 

People want the badass cowboy fantasy, and there are ways of doing it that balance progression and grinding, but it kills the whole fantasy and experience when jobs are only paying $5 and you turn to fishing for three hours just to have enough money to buy a halfway decent-looking jacket. I have in the teens of hours on the game and I still don't have enough gold nuggets for a gold bar to afford the knightly goatee at the barber--like what? Assuming a gold bar in this is 400 oz, that's $8,268 for a beard trim in 1899--in 2018, that's equivalent to $250,000... For all its own economic faults, just stop and imagine for a second the ridiculousness of having to spend $250,000 on a haircut in GTAO.

It might not currently feel like a grind because everything is new and interesting but give it a few weeks and you'll be sick of the sight of those f*cking wagons they make you go fetch in about 80% of the stranger missions.

 

For me, the best and most enjoyable way to make money is to just play those shootout series. I straight up refuse to grind in this game, if there is something I want but can't afford i'll just use a money glitch/exploit. Fight me.

@Matt Yes. The economy is straight up outrageous. 

 

@Stoakz A) The economy is beyond a grind. You misunderstood me.

 B) you seriously think I'm playing wagon missions? You don't know me then. I avoid them like juggalo jet griefers.

C) Yes. PvP, treasure hunting, and yellow story missions. Add in hunting/fishing/gang hideouts, and you're doing swell.

I don't see hunting as a viable way of making money and it is still kinda grindy to an extent. I had a perfect cougar pelt which sold for $7 which is an absolute joke.

Fishing/missions/PvP is the easiest way to make money imo

PvP is great when we play modes that fit our posse.

I’m still enjoying single player, I’ve only been online for an hour and it didn’t got me hooked yet, so I’m concentrating on the trophy’s. 

 

Just earned the Zoologist trophy 😅

^ nothing shows for me

 

Been talking with fellow FAST members. The official plan for the 1st RDO event is after Christmas and possibly New Years day. I've been waiting for stability to improve for others. Though we might not have private lobbies, I have a few ideas to get a public event lobby going. Some confirmed meets and ideas are; Valentine bar brawl, Strawberry fishing/hunting contest, Blackwater rooftop melee battle royale, Tumbleweed duels and showdowns, Saint Denis posse wars, and a marathon horse race or relay race from Tumbleweed to Annesburg.

 

GTAF, PBMO, and obviously FAST are all invited. If anyone in GTAF or PBMO want to help out or have any suggestions, feel free to post here.
