Red Dead Online Beta - Week 1 Update

You don’t get it.  If they lowered the prices of goods but also cut the payout of hunting it doesn’t benefit the hunters at all.  That was my point.

But the hunting/fishing prices were part of the imbalance. Why was everyone hunting and fishing? Because it was the most profitable, and the easiest way to overcome the high price of purchased items. If they had kept the payouts the same, there still would be the same imbalance.

they increased the payouts and lowered the weapon prices so more people can buy the gold upgrades for those weapons.

 

i guess that was their plan from the beginning. start with insane prices and reduce them to normal afterwards.

I don’t really play free mode, the matchmaking has better framework than GTAO, so I stick with that. Still hope they can fix a few things, I’ve sent some feedback. They need to reintroduce hold your own, stronghold and pre-match duels/standoffs and split up team modes from the free-for-all’s. Besides that, I really want them to add some voice to the characters, even if it’s just for emotes. And this is a longshot, but I really want the announcer to come back. I miss hearing “sweet justice.”

We're on the same page. sent some feedback regarding that too.

 

Also in gang matches they need to change something with team colours. When i'm on shooting spree i can barely see who's on my team. It's confusing as hell. The Dandies, Lonely Cowboys and what not isn't working at all. Quite a mess actually.

They seem to be rolling the $ and bars out at different times, i think it could take up until the 10th? not sure.

yes it does.

Less people feel like they have to fish and hunt to make money. You now have less competition in spots, less people trying to kill you, etc...

Balance is a great thing when done correctly.

$10-$15 for completion, sometimes the objectives will give $1-3 per, so anywhere from $10-$20 per mission, plus up to 5 nuggets from what I saw.

 

I also just did the last story mission and got a whopping $14. I've seen some big payouts for victories in PvP but it sounds like it goes up and down with a huge range (anywhere from $15-50 I've heard).

 

Fishing got hit pretty hard but hunting came out pretty much untouched in areas, you can still make $150-$200+ an hour bird hunting north of St Denis or Rhodes. If they nerfed fishing then I'd expect this to be nerfed as well at some point, although it may be a case of fishing being too easy compared to hunting which requires a bit more legwork.

 

Prices of a buncha things like recipes, horses, gun mods and ability card upgrades are still the inflated prices, ability cards in particular are a GIANT money sink at the moment, so still some work to be done on the economy IMO.

I look at it just the opposite. I tend to mostly hunt as I'm riding along, doing other stuff, but you can't do that with fishing.

 

See a bird, rabbit, etc, shoot it, jump off the horse and skin/pluck it. It doesn't take long, and adds up fast.

and the items cost less - same ratio.

no nerf happened

It’s not about ratio - it’s about profit per hour.

If bait costs $5.00 and a fish sells for $10.00 (using big round figures to make it simple) and A player can catch 20 fish an hour - that’s $100profit.

If the cost of bait and sale price of fish are both halved - $2.50 and $5.00 respectively, then profit per hour is reduced to $50 per hour because the player can still only catch 20 fish per hour.

Bait prices are insignificant (or free using a lure), so you're example doesn't make much sense.

All that matters is the purchasing power of an hours worth of work, and if your pay is halved, but the price of what you want to buy is also halved, you still have the same purchasing power.

Regardless of the actual dollar amounts in question, no bait costs 50% of the total sale price of the fish.

 

Your post was completely nonsensical.

Thanks for nothing youtubers spreading information on how we were making bank on fishing, thank goodness the birds still work. 

 

Yes, sure the payouts for PvP are slightly better, we still need more fore solo players.

 

Because believe you me, when they release properties and carts, I'm sure they will still require a lot more cash. 

 

And all this hoopla about gold bars, I still have only 2 and did not get any bonus money!

It was clearly stated that big round figures were being used to make it simple.  Not simple enough, obviously.

But you aren't selling fish with a 50% cost so why say it? 🤔

Uhh. I was agreeing with Smokewood that what's important is the ratio of the cost/sale price. You said that it's all about profit/hour. Those are very different.

 

If 10 fish bought you a throwing knife yesterday, and those same 10 fish buy you that same throwing knife today, it's irrelevant if the price of the knife is $20 or $50.

Smokewood (i’m pretty sure) was talking specifically about the reduction in price of bait and fish and the profit ratio of bait to fish.  Not the ratio of price of fish to price of weapons.

CBA to switch it all back on now, lol. I'm in no rush with the limited gaming on offer. Good to see it's coming though.

Because it is sufficient to demonstrate that profit percentage per unit doesn’t matter compared to profit per hour.
