Getting locked out from Harriet has already become incredibly annoying. I just want to sell some samples to get to rank 20 of this stupid role but no. 

 

Stop killing animals. Not being a dick. I have been locked out of her twice and I am level fifteen in Naturalist and have two Legendary Hoods.

Emptying 20 sedative cartridges into an animal only to see it run off into the distance is absolutely infuriating.

 

 

Even the biggest animals take less than ten, keep firing until your crosshair flashes red and/or you hear the sound of two pieces of wood clacking together. This means the animal is sedated and will eventually drop after a few seconds. Firing after this is a waste of ammo.

I have spent 90% of this update riding in circles trying to find some legendary animal that isn't there.

 

 

Level upto Level 5 and do the Legendary Missions. You can force Legendary Animal missions that give the same animals you can hunt in Free Roam. You will also unlock the ability to have Legendary Animals easier to spawn in Free Roam.

Stop killing animals? Say that to the countless suicidal birds and rabbits flying and running into me.

To be fair though, the amount of rabbits that love to cut across my path is a bit of a pain (cost me my 18 hour no killing daily initially, lol), and when a daily is to skin 3 ravens, it does make things naturally conflict.

 

But alas, I got my campfire I can use anywhere and that's all I was after so it's not an issue for me. I prefer to hunt game and be a collector instead of messing about like this, but each their own. RDR will always be a cracking hunting sim. :)

I have crushed about fifty animals underfoot by accident and never had her lose her temper with me. I dont even get the warning message in the top left.

I didn't kill anything for 16 in game hours, then I accidently killed some birds that flew directly into my horse as I tried to avoid them... Daily Challenge reset... and apparently word travels fast around the forest, drugged and locked out for a few minutes...

I'm trying my damn hardest to level up the Naturalist role so I can at least get the full Daily Challenge list each day, instead of Role rank locked one... I'm Level 10, it's getting a bit boring, but I'm getting there in between all the disconnects and black screens today!

Good grief, trying to grind out gold last night (keeping a streak going and ticking off any easy daily/bounty hunter/collector objectives) was a chore - I'm playing on The Most Powerful Console Ever™ (lolwut :rol:), I've got the game installed on an external drive which cuts down loading times somewhat (good grief, imagine what they'd be like if I'd just plonked it on internal storage...), and I've got really fast, reliable broadband in my area. In the last year, I've had virtually no connection issues with the game, even though I know a lot of people have had constant problems.

 

...so it's got to be pretty bad when even I'm experiencing half a dozen boots out of the game per hour - often maybe 5-30 seconds after joining a session. The worst being when I got into the game, took a step forward, and ...black screen of despair. :facedesk:

 

 

Between the stability problems, the hair physics issues, clothing clipping like f***, the UI greying stuff out until you back out and try again, and a bunch of other problems, I can't help but wonder if R* shoved this out the door earlier than planned, in response to people getting frustrated by the lack of updates. Particularly when Support answered my ticket about the hair physics immediately, saying no "have you tried clearing your cache?", but "we've had a bunch of people mention this, it's a known issue, and we're working on it!" - that makes me wonder if the problems with this current build are what are referred to as "known shippables", things that the QA folks know are issues, but aren't game-breaking enough to prevent the game/patch being released and then fixed later, and so the thing just got shoved out the door with some gremlins in it.

I read another post above that said the same thing. Cant say I have had birds fly into me but I have crushed rabbit by accident and I still got my Streak and Harriet wants my babies.

From what I gather the disconnection issues seem to be Xbox related? Since the update I've d/c'd once since the update on PS4

It seems like ps4 players are starting to have problems with disconnects now. But I'm on Xbox and have had problems since the night the update released

Nope - across the board:

 

 

 

 

And to be fair, I had next to no issues for the past year, all while many, many other people kept complaining about connection problems, and getting booted from sessions. If there's some issue with the game that means each update gives you a random chance of experiencing recurring stability issues, and I'm now one of the unlucky ones, then... :facedesk:

 

 

Of course, the big, obvious solution (to both this, and long-ass loading times) is very much closed/invite-only/friends-only/etc. sessions. :turn:  GTAO has the same problems to a lesser degree - choppy framerates, trouble connecting, long periods stuck in the clouds - but only in public sessions, whereas everything runs smooth as f*** if you're playing in a closed/smaller session, rather than an open one with dozens of players dropping in and out.

You can’t just expect Rockstar to suddenly add lobby options, no matter how hard the community presses them to follow up on it.

 

It’ll ease up the load on their “servers”, sure, but imagine players not being pushed by frustration into buying gold bars, since they can safely deliver Cripps’ goods without worrying about someone blowing them up for “sh*ts and giggles”. It’s why they entirely removed the solo session option in the first place, they think it’s a mistake.

It would be good if ALL legendary animals were available as missions through Harriet, but doesn't seem to be the case?

I'm level 18 and I've never seen the Marble Fox or Onyx Wolf, for instance.

I think you're probably correct as to why solo/crew/Invite Only lobby types were omitted, R* must see them as a mistake of sorts.

 

The theory of frustration based microtransaction purchases is a sound one, I'm certain it happens.

 

However, GTAO is the perfect example of why none of that matters. There are all of those official lobby options present where players can play alone or with friends, all be it with reduced gameplay options, there are also years old methods, on all 3 platforms, of easily playing in a public solo lobby with all content available, any player who spends <5 minutes on Google or YouTube can get a solo public lobby and grind millions unhindered, and yet GTAO/V is the single most profitable entertainment product ever.

 

Most players still choose to play in regular public lobbies and the players who play in solo public lobbies aren't the type of players who would buy Shark Cards anyway, they'd just quit playing if forced to go public.

 

I genuinely don't believe that R*/T2 are making more money from RDO because of the lack of lobby options.

Ah ok, I just assumed it was way worse on Xbox going by what people are saying on Reddit, I've got D/C twice since the update myself on PS4 but clearly DirtyT isn't fairing so well.

 easy, they could give us a close session option, then develop good, useful and fancy items and charge for them... tons of  weapon variants, clothing, horses etc in gold cost. I would give half my ingame wealth for a f*cking black friesian, a perlino quarter horse, a black and gold engraved bergman pistol, a dark wood engraved winchester 1895 etc. Deliver good content and geeks will bath you in money... but of course ...there are easy and more lazy ways of getting the greens and theya went for it.  Another option, is to just reduce the earnings in those sessions to give the option to players and discourage it at the same time.

Yeah. I had a couple on the first day of the update, which I wrote off as just 'eh, that's just how things are sometimes' (because while I've not had persistent connection issues with RDO, in the past, I've not been 100% issue-free, either). But then last night was just hell, getting booted out of the game and having to try again and again a good dozen times in a single sitting.

 

Again, I hope it's just this current build being pushed out of the door a bit too soon, and it's something they're working on - I imagine they're getting a bunch of support tickets from people, but it probably wouldn't hurt for me to add another one to the pile, I guess...

I really want to find the Onyx Wolf, found it once but it bugged on me.

Feels like I have spent most of this DLC just riding around in circles....

When everyone was complaining about disconnects last year I was one of the lucky few who experienced them maybe two or three times a week, never really broke the game for me.

 

I've disconnected 5 minutes after loading up for the past hour and a half now. I haven't had a steady session for more than 5 minutes. I literally just dc'd as I'm typing this. What gwan.

Does anyone else find less legendaries since reaching rank 15? I've heard more people saying this, seems like the rank 15 unlock that's supposed to increase your chances of finding legendaries is bugged and does the exact opposite....

This right here. I would be more willing to hand over my money if I had anything close to a private lobby being made available to me, even now with the state that the game is in.
