Mission glitch, mission glitch, mission glitch! Mission finally starts and...........it's a player assassination. FML!

how bout this one:

 

was riding towards rhodes butcher, had:

- a whitetail deer buck

-perfect buck pelt

-2 3 star turkeys

-good cougar pelt

 

as soon as i was standing infront of the bucther, no prompt came up to sell. instead i got those red letters across the screen, was targeted for assasination......by a lvl 8.

so, parked the damn horse, hid in a building with dual shotguns, and waited. must've killed the poor guy 10+ times, when the timer ended, the guy finally got me. and my loot on the horse was gone.....

i messed up 3 stranger missions from that guy afterwards to pay for my wasted time.good exp, but not the gameplay i was hoping for.

This could be fixed with just making the horse inventory persistent instead of this bs of being unable to leave your horse more than 20 meters away.

I really hate how characters look in the dark or in shadows. They look great when there's direct light shining on them but shadows make them look real bad.

I have not been losing the stuff on my horse when I have died lately. Once by a griefer another fighting computer guys.  Both times u responded and my horse still had its pelts. On one the carcass was lying next to my horse but was still there in perfect condition.  I dont know if it mattered or not but I didn't whistle for my horse when I respawns. I just went to were it was. Maybe that is the trick? Idk

As I've said before, both here and on Twitter, you only need to look here at the number of people using the GTAO and RDO sections of the forum to know something isn't right.

 

I never thought RDO would have the mass appeal of GTAO, but there can often be x4 or x5 the number of people using the GTAO section compared to the RDO section. The RDR2 and even GTA V sections often have more users viewing than the RDO section.

 

R* seriously needs to do something to build interest in RDO. Because at the moment there hardly seems to be any.

Why is the meaning of fun taken out of Showdown mode? What happened Rockstar? All you had to do is implement the same fun stuff with better graphics!

It is sad i can not even enjoy this game online. Offline its great ( because i can play in free aim). I just can not enjoy this one shot head shot bs. Yeah , yeah, i know get the 

'ability cards". Screw that , im only like level 13 because i just can not stomach playing this trash longer than 5 minutes at a time without turning it off to play something better that is not made for little kids. 

 

This auto aim bs is just too too casual for me. I dont feel like wasting my time trying to level up just to get some stupid cards. Man this game had so much potential, but them not adding free aim has literally killed this game for me. So sad about it but if they want less people playing it and a chance of less micros happening because of that, well be my guest Rock*

Just wait until content drops and there's a bunch of noobs coming online. They're going to jump right off because other players will be so OP. I'm level 35 with all ability cards on tier 2, only use express bullets these days. Ran into a greifer last night the guy was taking 2-3 shots point blank from my pump action. Same for my bolt action with express bullets. I didn't even check what level he was but I couldn't believe it. I can only imagine a level 13 trying to go up against someone like that.

 

Side note: the guy successfully sabotaged my stranger mission and killed me multiple times after I chased him, but I won the moral victory of ruining his gaming experience because I hounded him for about a half hour.

If they add invite only sessions, none of that card crap matters, lol.

 

That's the only way I'll return. Not a fan of PvP constantly in an open world that offers PvE modes. The quicker we can have proper freedom, the better. Those cards are a ridiculous addition, lol. Pay to survive headshots, pass.

I played Hostile Territory yesterday and ran into lvl 196 player. I think you know what happened. 

Me: Headshot=nothing, Headshot=nothing, Headshot=nothing.

Him: Headshot, i'm dead.

 

Of course, i didn't give up. So i tried again.

Me: Headshot=nothing, Headshot=nothing, Headshot=nothing.

Him: Headshot, i'm dead.

 

7 minutes later i had 2 kills, he had 15. He had all Tier 3 usual cards.

 

Disgusting.

Yeah. I feel the same way though. I still perform great though, but it sucks that someone who really isn't that good can fabricate their "skills" with ability cards

No thanks, i dont have any desire to really play this game and suffer thru this complete BS just to try to get my level up so i can finally get the "ability" cards to keep people from headshotting me with 1 shot all the time. Its flat out stupid and boring. Also i got better things to do than try to hound someone for a half hour just to "ruin their experience". I dont have all day and night to play games, so when im playing i prefer to spend my time enjoying what im doing. I simply can not at all enjoy this auto headshot bs .There is literally 0 skill involved in this game online atm.I have no clue how anyone enjoys that, but i know i can not . I just makes me sick.

The ability cards are just ridiculous.There are so many not playing this game because Rocks* refuses to give us the two things we want invite sessions only ( or crew sessions only) and free aim. Outside that many of us just wont be playing , which is only hurting Rock* since the more people you have playing the higher your chances people spend in micros. Its just crazy they wont even acknowledge these requests at all.At least tell us its coming or not . We are not playing until its in either way, but it would be nice to know they hear us and plan to add.

As have I with regards to RDR MP style Friendly lobbies and Invite Only. Just can't see it happening.

 

As for Ability Cards, as I try to avoid PvP, the only purpose they serve is to give me a better chance of getting away, or killing and getting away, from players who decide they want to kill me, and now I'm level 50 with all but Slippery Bastard and Never Without One (out of the cards I decided would be useful to me) at Tier 3, I have to say that they are proving to be very useful in that regard.

 

With the way that PvP has been implemented in RDO, Ability Cards are just about the only way that a passive player such as myself can stack the odds of surviving an encounter, with all my pelts, in my favour. Without them anyone of any level would be able to one shot me, despite the flaws of the Ability Card system, that's not possible, with the exception of high levels using explosive ammo.

Yeah, them forcing freeaim via those cards convinced me it's a no-go.

 

Still time for it to change after beta. Just remove them and refund players for example. But that's too much effort for R* to retread old ground, IMO.

 

Hence, poor PvP.  ;)

Free aim still exists in red dead online, even without slippery bastard III. Even without being far away from lock-on range. You might be asking how, here:

 

Pause > settings > controls > aim-something > normal / narrow / wide / free aim.

 

There you go, "free aim".

 

But it will be huge uneven disadvantage if you go up to players fighting. Although against NPC, it would be fine.

I know that dude, lol. R* added the choice and put freeaim PvP preferred players at a disadvantage. And because it can be forced onto autoaimers through those daft cards, says to me a freeaim lobby option is not in the pipeline. And autoaim preferring players are gonna be sh*t out of luck as their choices are removed. All contributing to this mess.

 

Those wanting proper freeaim all round without autoaimers ruining their preferred way/immersion are only gonna have to suffer R*'s incompetence, same for autoaim. Choice in an open world game gets removed from it, lol. Wasted potential.

Let me put this out there: ability cards have ruined online, taking PvP combat so far away from any semblance of reality that it just makes things laughable How is this fun for anyone, including those with maxed out ability cards? Sorry but a shotgun blast to the head should take you out, ability cards be damned. As I've said before, since they've gone this far, R* should do away with combat altogether -- just draw, compare ability cards and autokill the loser.  Online could not suck more - have been back in single player and loving life. How did they get this right 8 years ago but have made a complete botch of online for possibly the best single player game (and world) ever?

No kidding? Wow thanks captain obvious. That is the entire point. There is no point in playing at all if you select free aim cause your stuck with all the 12 year old Doc Holidays with all their 1 shot head shots. Great solution you got there .....

You're welcome. People act like free aim doesn't exist. Nowhere did anyone mention about free aim vs auto aim. So I pointed that out as well. Just need to be clearer in your own posts.

Meh. I still find myself playing it everyday. It’s boring in its current state but it’s the best open world I’ve ever played so just riding around is enjoyable for me. Fingers crossed they surprise us an unexpectedly release a big update soon.

Why am I not surprised that Rockstar decides to keep supplying the toxic online mode that they made back in 2013 instead of the completely new online mode they just made that not only is desperate for content, but has an infinite amount of opportunities to be completely unique and capable of having a stable and enjoyable fanbase?

It's a shame that the fast-paced hustling PvP aspect of GTAO is seemingly the focus of RDO, which doesn't work as well in a slower-burning Western setting. I think most players were really just looking for SP but with friends (with the occasional PvP gunfight), IMO.

 

Like what I've been saying, RDO needs to be essentially a Westworld simulator with multiple peaceful and hostile roles that you can get into, it can't chase the PvP Fortnite meme because its gunplay and movement mechanics will not be good enough to stand up to other online games- it needs to capitalize on its atmosphere and world-building instead.

 

And yet in RDO, all that world-building and atmosphere is stripped out...
