Red Dead Online Praise Thread

Recommended Posts

So I was reading the B&M thread, cos I like a good laugh and the sad sacks over there are actually bitching and moaning about people in this thread enjoying the game.

Some people just want to watch the world burn I guess. 😂🤣😂

Ok, gotta give the credit where the credit is due... The one and only thing I find good in online is the fact that your weapon loadout is is actually working. When you get off your horse, you have equiped all the weapons you choosed before. Unlike in SP...

The sniper buff is nice. I like the blips too. I think I do anyway.

 

That's sort of all I've got for now.

It seems we're in the minority, but the blips and sniper buff are the only things I actually like about the update.

 

Admittedly, the rest is fuel for the dumpster fire, but, IMO, R* got those two things right.

It's nice to feel good about posting in this thread after so much popular disappointment in this game has gone a bit by the wayside. This game wasn't always how I envisaged it or hoped it would be, but I have to applaud R* for making concerted efforts to find solidarity among its players rather than just take the easy path and leave things as they were. 

 

I'm happy to see sessions filled with players lately, rather than the half-empty sessions of over a month ago. Everyone was predicting certain doom for this game not too long ago, and even with the recent dripfeeding and lack of content there is still some well-founded dismay. But at least R* is working to change all that, and have established a solid blueprint for making freeroam fair for everyone and suited to everyone's playstyle.

 

There are many little things about this game that I love and get joy from. So I'm glad that the game is evolving into something better, instead of dying, which is what it seemed to be doing not so long ago. I'm having more fun logging in and playing now; and I feel genuinely excited by the changes coming in late spring, so much so that it almost feels as if late spring is Christmas.

 

Now I can look forward to more content (maybe summer and autumn maybe?), and hope for properties to arrive maybe around winter (I hope) or early next year. Then maybe we'll eventually be able to rob banks and stagecoaches -- giving characters like Butch & Sundance a way to make their living. Who knows what else we may get in time. At least R* is proving they can make this game something other than a mere mirror-image of GTAO, and for that I'm happy.

Good thing their game's so buggy lol. I lost two treasure map rewards at the cattail pond location - just wouldn't let me pick them up. Got compensated for both though, and probably more than you usually get in these treasure chests.

I was in a grumpy mood yesterday when I got on. As usual, I’m not looking to start fights, but I didn’t have to wait long for people to start attacking me. Got my 5/5 Bolt Action kills on some noob who started shooting at me for no reason. Then, riding through Great Plains two rank 100-somethings did the same thing; shot at me for no reason. I killed them and their posse and then rode north to pay my bounties and go fish in solitude. Didn’t die once. Felt much less grumpy afterwards.

Lol, this game ain't been given much praise lately.

 

I just came here to say I bought a 2nd Semi Auto Pistol last night, and boy when I hip-fire these two bad boys I'm a walking goddamn Maxim gun! It's insane.

 

The damage is crap, bullet spread ridiculous and you'll quickly run out of ammo, but man it's great to just blast the enemies and watch them stagger and splatter to their death. Strictly PvE though, they're not effective enough for PvP (unless you're using explosives, which would be even more insane but also an even bigger waste).

This game can be so relaxing and peaceful while riding around and fishing. 

 

Sometimes I even forget that there are players in the game.

Seems like majority of people here praising this sh*t of a game mode actually praise just the portion of the game that is already in singleplayer. Ridiculous. I mean the only thing I really like are the returning characters from rdr 1 but everything else is just boring buggy pvp mess. Rdr 1 did multiplayer better and it's almost a decade old.

Either way if you enjoy it...good for you.

@Hetraet Well... this is the praise thread. 🤷‍♂️

 

I’m the first one to admit that this game’s got plenty of bad in it. Still, there are undeniably good parts too, some stuff that I could enjoy in SP but that I rather share with friends playing as a character I’ve made. And stuff that you can’t get from SP at all.

 

Anyway, there is a B&M thread and it’s on fire.

I have exactly the same thing. Or, "Hey I will go to tumbleweed and do some stranger.....hey whats that (take out my camera and take a lot of pictures) and then I am picking herbs and hunting deers
After an hour ..OHHww...I was heading to tumbleweed for missions ....damn....what a nice game


Little embarrassing to say....
Each time when I have to log off (because stupid things such as work, friends or making diner) I just wandering for a minute or two ...jump from menu and back ....lol
before I really exits the game

Faith restored.

 

I was solo and a little bored. I saw these two fellows sitting in the Tumbleweed saloon while there was some ruckus outside, as always in old Tumbleweed. I have no idea who they were but since they were sitting there I grabbed myself a whisky and sat down with them and we kept drinking for a few minutes, constantly getting up going for refills (the whisky should last longer, R*).

A posse ravaged the town by the sound of it and I was just waiting for a shootout. The other posse comes in - and they didn't draw their guns but instead did the thumbs up and went for drinks. So we were all just drinking merrily, I almost wish we could have danced.

And after I went back to the game after pausing to send this picture to my friend, the game crashed and I was stuck on this screen, which was beautiful in a way.

 

Sidenote: I think there should be places in the world that are gun-free. Not entire towns of course, but some Saloons for example. Or just one Saloon. Make it in St. Denis or Blackwater. It's nice to have at least one place where people must be friendly to each other, where you go to just socialize etc. Yeah. I'll send that request to R*.

Too bad the barkeep doesn't have a drink wench to take your drink orders. I'd rather sit at the table and play some cards in the meantime.

That would’ve been great. Maybe down the line... though maybe feels far away at this point.

As of the last daily challenge refresh, animals that we need for the daily challenge weren't scarce. I found three pigs in the hog pen at flatneck station, killed and skinned them for the hides and animal fat. Then after jumping to different sessions twice, found at least five more in that pen. I really needed to stock up on animal fat to craft explosive rounds, and put an extra ten animal fat in my satchel. Those pigs really helped.

 

Then early this morning and this afternoon, I found a total of seven Egrets in my usual hunting spot for them. I may continue looking for them, and try to get ten plumes from at least one variety of Egret. Either Snowy, Little, or Reddish.

Speaking of which with yesterdays easy list I actually completed all 7 in one day for the second time now and was able to confirm (not that it wasn't already, I just hadn't confirmed it for myself yet) that you do indeed get 40 nuggets for the final 7th challenge completed. Nice touch, I'll have to try and complete all 7 more often, really enjoy how they easily and rather steadily bolster your gold bar amount over time, which is great for me as I keep spending that gold on clothing and colored metals for my guns lol.

I had a couple of enjoyable hours yesterday. 

 

I was hunting, a blue level 10 came up to me, "here we go" I thought, but they just waved and started following. So I went about my business, loaded us both up with pelts and carcasses, showed them where to catch salmon, hit a few hideouts and ambushes, protected them from a trigger happy level 40 something, got them safely to the butcher in Valentine and parted ways. 

 

It was the most fun I've had for a while in RDO.

The game looks much more sexual now ambient occlusion is back on. Feels like animals are appearing more too, and bodies not disappearing so often.

Everything about this update make the game feel more alive, the new missions, the random events, the ambient occlusion fixed

 

the character creator is better and I make a decent Abigail Marston char

 

I hope this is the dam faith the game needed it

I'm really digging the update too. However, I feel like Rockstar gutted a huge chunk of content to dripfeed later. For example, the new saddles have no improved version but I'm sure it'll be there next update. It's pleasing to know better improved and specialty saddles are coming but I want them now. Right now :(

I think maybe the improved version might be drip fed.

I want them soon, they are gorgeous!
