The card system is literally just a basic skill tree, not sure why people keep badgering on about the package it's in (cards). I think that sort of progression is a good fit for the game in theory though I do think they kinda went in the wrong direction with them. I'd rather they were more about enhancing playstyles, like making you a little better with pistols or shotguns or whatever, maybe even adding unique skills/animations once ranked up high, like say a someone skilled in melee would fight in a different style, or someone skilled in gunslinger would have different animations, fancier twirls when holstering etc. 

 

That way you're not getting overly powerful over newer players (though there's nothing wrong with a power curve) and also people can look at you and go "oh he's a a brawler, he's a gunslinger, he's a hunter, etc".

 

Right now it's like oh I shot him in the head but he didn't die, he's got never without one, or oh I went in paint it black but couldn't target him, he's got slippery bastard. It's not very interesting.

Wait a minute, SB blocks PIB? I thought you still paint players who are using SB?

Nah I noticed PiB not marking players before the update. I'm sure there's something that blocks it, unless I'm going mad.

Afaik nothing blocks it except defensive, you can paint someone using SB for sure as it's been used on me like that, outside of slow n steady I don't think any of the deadeye cards help against it but I could be wrong.

Yea I think I'm confusing SB blocking lock ons with not painting targets in PIB.

It's kinda funny to me and unfortunate that due to the card having no real hard counters it's quickly become the most commonly used dead eye card in my experience. I didn't mind it in the first RDO because everyone was on the same playing field but in this game it feels a bit cheap given the effectiveness of it.

Its about time R* deleted all these cards and refunded players there hard earnt, R* change and play with other stuff they really need get rid of this sh*t card system low ranks dont stand a bloody chance so unfair imo, And certainly NOT realastic

I hated ability cards ever since they introduced them. Its to the point people with the best ability cards can stand in the middle of the street and eat shots all day without taking cover. In all the matches Slippery Bastard is heavily used. Sports of Kings, Up in Smoke, Spoils of War. I

Infinite loading screen on two separate train station missions today. So we're back to hit or miss on those again.

Buried deep inside the showdown series.

I'm not sure which showdown series it's a part of, but I think it's just showdown series, not small or large.

Don't quote me on that, though.

Have had issues with it for a while now. Smoke signal in the distance, ride over and nothing there at all. Noticed it in particular around the Bluewater Marsh area but I've seen it in other areas as well.

Spotted a red dot player near me and decided to give him a bit of hassle, since I was near bored to death waiting for a hideout to spawn. 

Set course towards the red dot, got noticed when both our blips were on the minimap. He ran for it, I decided to chase him for a short distance (I wanted to stay close to the hideout spawn spot). Then I saw him jump off a cliff to kill himself, before I could shoot him....... my first RDO ewo sighting...

So I’m on my second acc trying to do story missions. 

 

Bloody random players are are the biggest bunch of sh*t out there, I’ve gone thru a full satchel of tonics both one and level two not died once spent 2.5 hours trying in different lobbies to do one bloody mission 

 

To all you low level random players FFS use tonics for your health if you ain’t good to survive, Eat minty big game take cover don’t just stand there shooting, if you in the open move around fast  That will get you thru 

 

But the long and short is they won’t and just f*ck up every bloody mission 

 

ggrrrrrrrr

Yes, I've noticed that too and it completely spoils the event. It's hard to win against them. If I see people using those I usually just leave at the end and then rejoin a different one.

Yup. RDR multiplayer had only Paint it black and it was balanced. You still had your chance against high level guys, not like RDO where they're almost unkillable. That's just one of the reasons why RDR multiplayer PVP was fun and satisfying. Mexican standoff, better maps, better modes, etc are other reasons why it's better.

All due, it is the B&M thread and I just dislike how they warp the PvP and make it harder for me when attacked in freeroam as I don't want them. So even when I'm past rank 100 or whatever, I'm still an underpowered noob, lol. Not that I'll do any PvP in this game as it's too often anyway that I'm bored of it before even getting to a showdown or race, and we have no choice in what one we do. (Yada yada yada, lol).

 

You hit the nail on the head. Overpowered and boring, that's why I mock them dude. I'm not against a natural power curve, high rank over low, clean guns over poorly maintained etc. The experience/learning should be more important too, currently if I out flank another (including lower ranks once I move up that ladder), means sh*t. They just glitch cash and buy a bullet dodger, lol.

 

I'm all for them adding quirks and characteristics though, pretty good idea that. But not warp balance of the game. A non-PvP player feels more compelled to buy that crap, it's a waste of time and money to me as I got no interest but clearly it'll stop me getting hassle. Just bollocks I have to play a certain way rather than choose my path and get an unbalanced game.

If anything we've learned about Rockstar PvP balance over the years, it's that it's not, lol. And frankly, I don't think Rockstar gives much of a crap if it is, as long as people keep playing the game. Numbers are more important than smiles. 

They could easily disable cards during freeroam activities, but that would cripple the socially challenged keyboard heroes, of which presence is many in these games.

Balancing in Rockstar mmo's is never gonna happen. 😁😁

Don't assume low-ranks are always bad though. Many of my characters are low-rank still, but I've done the missions so many times low rank doesn't matter, I do fine.  Yet every time I start a mission on the weapon loadout screen high-rank players see my low rank and disappear, sometimes appearing a few seconds later only to vanish again. Sometimes I'm the only low-rank and they all split lol...their loss I'm not bad at all, I just have so many characters I spend time on that I progress very gradually.

 

Occasionally though I come across a low-rank that can't do anything right. So I see what you mean; but most times I get through okay with randoms.

Fully agree I’m 176 on main acc but a lowly 21 on new acc 

 

Also never assume a high level is the dogs danglies either, I’m nothing special if only average and 176 doesn’t reflect ability it reflect time put ingame

Took 17 goes to finish the mission for setting up the bank robbery then onto the actual bank job only one other player joined a level 15 and we cleaned first go.

 

its just a lot of numbers go in guns a blazing no care in the world and die strait away, a few of the right snacks and tonics would go a long way to the average player

The melee in this game can actually f*ck off most of the time tbh. This happened until I died. (Not tapping because I have Tap Assist set to hold.)

Player rank doesn’t mean much in my experience. I often see rank 150+ finish near the bottom in showdowns.

My thoughts exactly and same goes for other players that do this to you during the Free Roam Events. Had 2 idiots do this to me in the middle of a Master Archer event (of all things) today rather than just concentrate on their archery skills on non-player targets. 🙄 Was a bit satisfying though to be able to briefly fight one off and jab an arrow into his neck. 😉

Probably me 😛 Rank 151 now, still struggling really hard, but you won't see me in any showdowns anymore.
