Who says they can't do what they want? We're simply saying, let others do what they want.

Uh, not me.

Did I imply that anywhere? In that case, it was not what I meant.

Ofcourse other people can do what they want. That's the foremost reason I want some form of private lobby: So I can do what I want.

That sounds like a recipe for making everyone paranoid and shooting first.

Which is what we have right now. If I wasn't using the minimap to find lootables and carcasses, I'd find this a good idea.

Please tell me you know something I don't. About RDR sessions anyway. I'm pretty sure you know lots of stuff I don't.

Just had an amusing exchange with a lvl 14 scrub. Kept shadowing me around a town, and hanging around the butcher, but in other stores.

To cut a long story short.

 

12:0

 

And then he messaged me, calling me a cheater and left.  Awww, I denied him griefing me 😢 instead he got killed over and over again.

But what level are you?

 

A level 14 can hit a higher-level target about 4 times in the chest at close range with a pump-action shotgun and they'll only down them. I'm a level 15 right now and the only way I've been able to take down a level 20+ is by headshoting 1-2 times with a volcanic pistol. People just don't die and it's like I'm made of tissue-paper.... their varmint rifle is more powerful (and accurate) than my fully upgraded carbine repeater.

That sounds so boring. It's not as creative as me hogtie'ing someone and throwing them off the roof. 😅 If anything, I prefer creative kills that's actually funny.

It is boring. All griefing is. The enjoyment I get is denying the griefer a giggle killing me and instead sending them packing, knowing they're probably smashing their controller around.

So, now we need/want "fair warning" when other players pursue us?

 

This forum is classic!

 

"I have enough stress at work. I wanna play games to relax" & "We need fair warning when other players come at us" are two replies I've been given recently & they illustrate the dilemma of Red Dead Online ; nobody wants to play it!

So, it's not cool for him to try to kill you, but it's cool to go 12-0 on him?

Best feeling ever. Same thing happened to me last night before logging off. He tried but failed miserably and as time went on I could see him becoming more and more frustrated, eventually just riding straight at me making my job even easier, lol. I logged off after he’d followed me to a remote area and I was up 13-2 on him lol

What’s wrong about that? If they start anything they deserve being stomped into the ground.

 

”Griefers”, pffft. Crybabies.

As I have said and maintained. PvP trolls and griefers are the biggest noobs and the most unskilled players. Thats why they dont want separate lobbies. They only pick one sided fights. As soon as someone fights back or is better than them, they leave, cry and sook.

 

It'd be like a 30 year old grown man picking a fight with a toddler, and when the toddler hits them in the balls, he cries about it being a brutal assault and a hate crime.

 

Classic ass-clowns.

I'm not really sure what makes someone a noob or unskilled in Red Dead Online. It's like these words and terms don't have a place here when everyone's opinion is different on what these mean. Besides, not every

PvP trolls and griefers would go negative. The one you attacked was an easy target.

Be me;

-Catch perfect deer with lasso method in buttf*ck New Austin. 

 

-Gallop to Blackwater, slowest horse in the world. 

 

-Run over some guy by complete accident. He was in front of the hitching post.

 

-Can't interact with butcher cuz I ran over the f*cker.

 

-f*cker kills me steals my cargo. 

 

-Repawn.

 

-Shoot everyone and everything in my way. Shot innocent player but I wanted revenge, plus he came running towards me and I fired. 

 

- f*cker now at the tailors. See his horse, an Arabian. Start blasting on it, f*cker tries to gallop away and I shoot him off his horse. He goes for cover but I still have him in my sight. 

 

-he's using dead eye and I just shot from my hip. Down him! (Nearly downs me, f*cking gun takes 10 years to reload!) Go over to the f*cker, and shoot him point black with a pistol. Kill his horse and no insurance charge! 

 

- Get silver sharpshooter reward!

^^ That, and Rockstar's attitude of letting a once amazing open world stagnate for the sake of monetization.

 

TONS of easy-to-implement additions and tweaks to the world of Los Santos would have vastly improved game play and kept things fun.

Not catering to the latecomer demographic of Squeaker Kid With Mom's Credit Card would have vastly improved things too.

So I logged on today and started my warm up (hunting purdy birds north of SD) and some random starts firing at me with a revolver. Six shots went six foot over my head, one return shot from the BA and problem solved. Two minutes later some turd is blind firing at me with a Repeater, ten shots all around me with no hits (Pulp Fiction style), out comes BA, same result. One dead scrub.

I guess School Holidays just kicked in here in ‘Straya. 🤣

So, if your problem is "griefing" but the people doing it are ineffective, why is there still crying about it?

 

People just want something to complain about it seems.

They'll leave soon enough. There's basically no reward other than self satisfaction for killing players in free roam. All the griefers I meet are low level with basic crappy gear.

I imagine the wild west will get boring to them soon. Not enough dabbing emotes, m4's with foregrips, explosions, hyper-jet energy import cars and the like.

Dont think so. More people will shoot everyone on sight because theyre getting sick of getting shot themselves. Theres no point in killing people in gta as well,but just look at the game...everybody is friendly right.

 

I guess they just add pve or passive,both cheap solutions. A bountysystem is the special thing in singleplayer,besides that its just gta with less and weaker cops(no helis etc). So for me its not interesting without bounties. Would be sad if im right because 5 year old gta really shouldnt be better.

Don’t have a problem at all champ, I was just pointing out that there is going to be an influx of no talent scrubs for the next month or so. I actually enjoy dropping griefers, it breaks up the long hunting sessions.

Nice try though.

Doesn't matter one damn bit if they're "effective" or no.  I'm minding my own, grinding my own, fishing or hunting, and some jackass runs up shooting blanks, he's still scaring off all my income.  I want an option to not just kill griefers, but also skin em and hang their heads on my saddle as a gd warning.

It's like they have a big ol smile on their face that they are gonna grief you so hard... then... nope.

They get killed over and over and over until they finally rage quit the server. Puts a massive smile on my face knowing I made some anti-social maniac lose their cool.

 

This is basically how I imagine them after they get killed so hard they leave the server.

If people kill me first I do retaliate and then it gets to the point where it looks like I'm bothering them....then they leave the lobby. Otherwise I see you pull one out to aim while riding past...that is an automatic death sentence. So far I'm 6 for 6 at making people quit when they start with me. Griefers are not good at a straight up fight in ANY lobby under any circumstances in ANY game they just want the quick hit and run and in this game they don't run too well. Once they kill you they are marked and any average player can take 2 on at once with no problem.....even aim assist can't help these jerks.....dudes are a joke. I was easily able to make 2 people quit at once shooting them off horseback(i think its easier to kill players when you are on a horse in my opinion) then I was able to get my horse and the grief game was over, because that is when they weren't able to touch me a whole lot. Push both fools from Blackwater all the way back into the country of West Elizabeth then they called me all types of names before vacating the server, but see Griefers don't understand that you don't really know  what a player can do until you try them......all they had to do was go on about their business...while I was getting drunk in the Saloon....now their experience is ruined trying to ruin my experience because I introduced them to my Arsenal called World of Hurt.

 

See this is my I like 3rd person games, because you can have the appearance of not being aware(drinking in my case) and people think you can't see them when they come up behind you not knowing you have the rear view camera on them.

No, I don't think one person has contradicted themselves.

 

I think we're all saying the same thing:  don't grief us when we're working.  But if you want to be a jackass and try anyway, we're going to run you to ground and there ain't sh** these crybaby bullies can do except log out.

Last night was probably my worst experience with “town campers” or “butcher campers” that I’ve had so far playing RDRO. I don’t give a rats ass what some people think about it but I honestly believe there needs to be a better (or more fair) way to be able to sell your stuff to the butcher, or visit a store, without having to worry about fighting your way through hell. Two guys set up shop on top of the Stables and literally ruined every ones chances of doing the above listed things. 1. Run like hell. 2. Get shot and die. 3. Spawn outside of town. 4. Repeat 1-3 over and over til you get lucky. This just doesn’t work for me. And for those of you who think I’m either not a good player or I’m just complaining: Go piss off! 😝
