Beta reset

Recommended Posts

BO-DACIOUS

Hey guys, someone told me that once beta is finished, the whole game progress you've made will reset. Then I read that just the skills and rank MAY reset. Can someone tell me what WILL and what MAY reset once beta ends? 

 

Thanks guys, 

 

Bo

As soon as rockstar have sorted out all the money glitches, everything will get reset and red dead online will exit the beta period.

Nobody knows anything definite about whether there will be resets, or what they might entail if they happen. R* have officially said they hope they won't need to wipe/reset but reserve the right to do so if they feel it necessary. Anybody claiming to know anything more than that is full of sh*t.

Wouldn't surprise me with folk glitching already, but we'll see.

 

Would be a bit tedious, but it is what it is, R*'s call.

you are just guessing and there is no basis for your comment.  As others have said, this is not a Beta Period.  Just read Rockstars own words on the news wire.  They plan on implementing changes and player suggestions over the next several weeks and MONTHS!  What you see is the full release and they plan on upgrading it as they go.

I know they call it Beta, but this clearly is not the "Beta" release of recent years.  In the past Betas always had a hard start and end date.  the fact that Rockstar plans on fixing stuff over a period of MONTHS, clearly indicates this is not a beta.

I can see something similar happening as the early days of GTAO: a money wipe with R* gifting everyone a certain amount to put everyone on an even footing monetarily. But xp, items bought, etc. would remain.

 

They know it would be a PR nightmare if after, say, 6 months, they wiped everyone's progress completely out.

I hope they will reset if needed. I’d rather lose everything than for them to compromise on fixes.

One of the biggest reasons why I don't play Escape from Tarkov anymore is due to the frequent wipes. Gets old really fast, and it's another example of a game that been in development for years now, with Battlestate Games making empty promises about fixing critical issues like lag and desync. Sound familiar?

 

The longer R* takes before doing a wipe, the bigger headache it will be to their player base, who may well have second thoughts about starting a very insidious and demanding grind all over again.

If anything, i see them resetting only the money (only if money exploits comes out).

They may reset more if fixes need it. I’d rather play a better game for years than a sh*t one but to avoid losing a month or more of progress.

Losing a month worth of grinding in RDO is a huge hit (depending on how much you play). If they reset anything besides money they would have to do it within a month of the release of RDO and have a really good reason to imo. Otherwise everyone will be pissed.

I agree and it would piss me off. Not as much as if they could have made the game better but didn’t out of fear of whinage.

very interesting little statement at the very end of Rockstars Newswire 

 

Look for lots more updates to the Red Dead Online Beta in the coming weeks and months, along with some more tips here at the Newswire.

 

Sounds to me that this so called "BETA" will last for weeks and months!!

Yes, it is great news. I hope instead of band aid solutions they cut stuff that doesn’t work, add stuff that is needed and change things that are off balance.

I wouldn't have thought they would wipe the entire game. If they fixed some massive glitches they might reset everyones money to a certain level and if there are some crazy ranks they might lower them too. I can't see why they would need to reset everything.

GTAO was a Beta when it came out. Or, throughout it's entire lifespan, one could argue. If/when the game made made the transition, no one lost anything. That said, if R* can transfer your progress from one console/format to another, from one console generation to another, I'm pretty sure that they can transfer your process from Beta to the full-on version of RDR2O.

Well that's my point. Rockstar are only calling it a beta so that gives them permission to reset or change things significantly in the future. Of course I'm just speculating and messing around. I don't necessarily believe everything I write, I'm just saying stuff to see what others think.

I'd say it was bad press than whining though. GTA wasn't exactly loved for the early bollocks and the press had fun too.

 

Gamers mean little compared, IMO.

I won’t touch the game again if they erase everything... or any R* game going forward.

I think it’s irrelevant. The press will love a reset to show commitment to fixing a game.

I'd rather my rank wasn't reset. I don't care about the guns, weapons, money I have or gold bar

I can really only say this: Don't expect to keep everything from the Beta..

 

As others have stated above, R* has not officially or specifically said what will be reset or what won't be reset.. All they said is if things go smoothly, they might not have to reset at all.

 

Reset will occur if thousands, hundreds, or even a small amount of players use exploits to gain massive amounts rank/money/gold/weapons/items/etc.. If there were no exploits/glitches that caused the reset, then R* might have changed the economy or some other aspect of the game that required a reset.

 

All I have to say is don't cheat or use exploits in Online games, yes it's the company's fault for accidentally leaving exploits for players to access, but it's every player's duty to be honest and fair. Just because a cop isn't at the intersection watching you, doesn't mean you can just run the red light..

I really do not wanna start over, went thru that character builder 9 times to get what i want, the dawm bugs and disconnects even broke my installment of the game at some point and i had to reinstall the whole dawm game.

So no thank you....

They'd scare people off for good if they wiped us. Rank is HARD to obtain, same with money.

 

My character's deadeye and health are almost maxed too.... I don't want to do that sh*t again to level them. Stamina is easy

And I hate the grind too much to start over. GTA I didn't mind as it wasn't as bad.... even though people like to defend RDO and say it is..... somebody even told me "Apartments weren't in GTA Online at launch!" lol I easily found out he didn't play GTA Online in 2013

My best guess? When the beta ends, they will:

Permanently ban money glitchers and continue to do so with every update.

 

Reset the story without erasing legit progress.

 

Either let us keep everything we bought like nothing happened/put all the money we made back in our accounts, forcing us to buy everything again.

A week on and stats are maxed, many are past level 25. You have never tried anything hard, if you believe this is it.
