Red Dead Online Praise Thread

Recommended Posts

Happy Hunter

Hearing a lot of complaints about pricing, free aim being mixed with auto aim, etc. Got to be some good things in the game? I like the sound of having the lasso personally, even if it is controversial. Maybe my mind will change on Wednesday when I can play, sounds fun to me though.

 

If there's another thread like this already, or some other issue with it, mods can remove it of course.

It probably would be fun if was stable. Too many errors and disconnects to praise this game, for the moment anyway.

Ugh, unknown network errors from GTA was one of my worst fears.

 

Hope no one takes this thread as fanboying anyway, just want to hear any stuff people like or is an improvement off GTA's multiplayer.

I love that we can use the lasso. It's not something to worry about when griefing because you can button mash out of it pretty quickly and you pretty much have to let people do it to you. Me and a bunch of people in a lobby decided to just use lassoes on each other in Blackwater and we had the time of our lives trying to place each other on horses.

The lasso is all I can say atm

Always wanted to lasso up noobs and I'm glad the "Lasso won't be in Online" people were wrong.

 

The prices have me VERY unhappy, especially since people are actually defending them.... I love this game and think it's a masterpiece, but the Online part of it is horrible compared to GTA in 2013 thus far

I gotta say, leading up to this release I believed we were going to see a pretty much complete product labelled 'beta' merely as insurance against backlash for launch troubles, but this is seeming more and more like it might be an Honest-to-Goodness with Testing & Feedback Genuine Beta Period.The report & feedback website interface is quite slick and streamlined compared to the barebones R* support site used for GTAO, like they aren't ashamed that it needs to exist at all. Strange to say, the very roughness of everything, the missing functions and whackadoo prices, are actually giving me some optimism they might mean what they say?

 

Or maybe I'm just deluding myself with counterintuitive optimism. :D

The prices are definitely horrible and microtransactions are a huge concern. They better tweak those prices and make them lower because it is way too overinflated. Lassoes are awesome though. I wouldn't say it's worse than GTAO in 2013 yet considering how I was stuck in a race loading screen lobby for a long time and this actually works in regards to that aspect. There were some disconnects though.

The people freaking out over the lasso are worrying about nothing. 

 

The thing is straight up useless, it literally only takes like 2 seconds to break free and if you get hogtied you can press circle anytime you want; to kill yourself and respawn freed. 

 

The only time I've ever been hogtied for longer than 5 seconds is when for fun I let a guy hogtie me so I could see where he would take me. 

 

It's a non issue. Also I just realised how weird that sentence above sounds.

Played for 6 hours and had a blast.

 

No connection issues at all. Did a couple,of free roam things with massive multiplayer gunfights, it was awesome.

 

Lots of random events and things going on, it’s absolutely amazing.

I did a mission and was awarded a whole dollar. Only need to play 999 more missions and I can buy the Mauser! Yay!

Game has run well for me after I got in. A single disconnect, but reconnected straight away.

 

But constant map blips and lock on aiming is so bad, that PvP is just pointless.

The game has potential and I'm honestly surprised that the online is very similar to the single player in terms of mechanics (like hunger and stuff). Just needs to be better ways to earn money and gold because right now you can't earn that much. The game doesn't have jets so I don't mind always being on the radar.

The returning characters from RDR 1

Spoiler

I loved seeing Bonnie and Shaky again; The latter was a real big surprise given he only made one appearance. I was expecting to meet Irish not him

Honestly I find doing missions for the characters who are actually in RDR and RDR 2 more enjoyable than helping Online only characters

The fact that it is a beta is pretty good. Gives me hope for a more enjoyable game down the road.

I'd like to praise rockstar support for their fast as hell response time. While the bug managed to fix itself upon trying once more the guy responded within seconds.

you're closer to the Mauser than I am, I bought some ammo yesterday and now my online character is going to be in some random encounter like that one in the story where you you find beggers and they ask you for money.

I played around seven hours yesterday and it's really difficult to find major flaws. Visible blibs was a disappointment, but the map is so huge and the fastest vehicle is horse, so I was able to hunt, loot and wander around completely unbothered. Gun prices are weirdly high, but bullets are really cheap. You get guns when you start the game and the ultimate edition gives you even more free guns, so the prices didn't bother me at all... yet.

 

Selling one pelt per day covers the daily camp fee and there are still houses full of free loot, so really, I'm okay with the prices, so far. Some enterable houses are locked in online mode.

 

Clothing selection and variety is poor, but there are detailed adjustments and of course there WILL BE more clothes in DLCs.

 

Random NPC gangsters are terminators, so PVE would have all the challenge and gun slinging you need. I would gladly randomly help, random players, but instead, I have to stay on guard and move along while they're being eaten by wolfs.

 

I was expecting to have couple disappointments and I had them, but overall the game lived up to my expectations and to remember this is still a beta and I'm only on level 7.

Just riding around with my buddy in some spectacular weather/lighting conditions (bright sun above, but a dense fog patch around us), trotting along in our Bounty Hunter outfits amongst the big stone outcroppings in New Austin was breathtaking. Really great vibe. I hope they patch and fix and improve the many issues we are all having. Because behind those issues is an amazing experience waiting to be had.

 

Other then environmental positives (which can apply to SP as well), I'm liking most of the interface choices. Generally the UI feels snappier then GTA, and decently organised for a Beta condition product.  I mean, we have the same inventory system as SP and it's not 'ideal', but overall I was pretty happy just interacting with the game world and the Online-specific menu structure.

 

And it's nice to see that Cougars are as much of a menace in Online as they are in SP. Yeesh...

I've had quality time with randoms doing story missions. No fails, no sabotaging missions. Really good.

I was looking for a thread like this after reading only bitching and moaning here mostly from people not able to play the game 1st day.

I had a blast as well! got 6 hours in, did quite some missions/hunting/last man standing/races and deathmatch and i litterally loved every minute sofar.

I think its the ambiance ... like a last man standing only bow and asrrows in a dark misty swamp.. give me more of that it was lovely!

Sure there are some flaws and some things could be better.. but its beta.. and im quite impressed what theyve done sofar

Still got nothing...

 

Ok, a couple things. Some of the story missions are quite fun, even with randoms. Doesn't excuse the slave wages payouts they give...

 

The world is full of wildlife. (Too bad it also feels like 80% of the population was wiped out).

A very honourable endeavour @Happy Hunter

 

Erm, I like that there is no k/d stat. I also like that wildlife seems to have been fully incorporated into online.

It make other online experience feel better, including GTAO. (but probably not fallout76, even though I didn't play it to see for myself, from what i've seen in stream....)
