RED DEAD ONLINE BETA UPDATE (JAN 25, 2019)

Recommended Posts

ALifeOfMisery

GOLD BONUS, GUN RUSH LOBBY IMPROVEMENTS AND MORE

 

UTWxVdS.png


Gold Bonus

 

Thank you to dedicated Red Dead Online Beta players worldwide for your continuing feedback as we work together to refine the game experience. As a token of our gratitude for your support and understanding throughout this Beta period, we are rewarding this weekend’s active players with a bonus of 5 Gold Bars. Play the Red Dead Online Beta between today Friday January 25 and Sunday January 27 to qualify for the bonus, which will be delivered to your account by Tuesday January 29.

 

Gun Rush Feedback & Matchmaking Improvements

 

Following the launch of the new Gun Rush mode, we identified a few matchmaking issues, some of which we have addressed with short-term improvements and all of which we are working towards more permanent and proper fixes for in the longer term. The minor improvements should help generate fuller lobbies and we will add more fixes in upcoming title updates. Gun Rush is best experienced with as many competitors as possible, so if you had any issues with smaller lobbies around release, we strongly encourage you to give it another go this weekend as we are already regularly seeing much fuller matches on both PS4 and Xbox One.

 

For those who haven’t tried it yet, Gun Rush is a tooth and nail, Western style battle-royale fight to the death for up to 32 players that can be played either with Teams or as a Free For All. Players compete in an ever-shrinking battle zone with horses for quick transport (and associated risks). Skirmish for weapons ranging from Mauser Pistols to Repeating Shotguns to Fire Bottles and Dynamite Arrows – as well as for valuable, hard to obtain armor like the headshot-thwarting Ned Kelly Armor to help you survive to the end.

 

We also updated our official Feedback page to now include dedicated sections for Gun Rush. We of course want to know what you like, don’t like, suggestions for improvements and changes to this and other modes and types of gameplay – so please do keep it coming!

 

More to Come

 

Our teams are currently working on lots of fixes, changes and improvements to the game based on player feedback including the quality of life improvements that we detailed in our last status update: Proximity-Based Player Blips, Parley Changes with quicker access to Feuding, Law and Bounty Improvements to discourage griefing while introducing a new Freeroam dynamic between bounty hunters and criminal rogues, plus Daily Challenges with gold nugget rewards and more. We are currently planning to have these and other improvements to the game included in a Title Update scheduled for release in the coming months – we’ll provide more information as we get closer to the date.

"In the coming months" ahaha, see y'all in March I guess. R*'s glacial update pace might work in GTAO which launched with far more on offer and has years of content accrued but it's a comically absurd way of doing things in such a barebones beta as this...

 

We have more or less the same amount of content now as we did on launch day. Surely there's not much left to be tested. Surely a beta test period would be better utilized with a steady stream of small additions to be tried, tweaked and tested again?

What an absolute joke of a newswire entry.

 

"Please play Gun Rush, a mode where you get 1/10th of the money and experience you would get playing normal showdown modes. But we won't fix spawns, the Varmint Rifle, your horse constantly going back down to Bonding 1, or any other problem you might have for another few months.

 

Here's 5 gold bars though."

 

Holy F*ck

I read the title of the newswire post and saw lobby improvements, and got my hopes up, until I re-read it and realized it meant lobby improvements for Gun Rush matches. At this point we may as well stop hoping for lobby types. Plus waiting several months for some basic fixes and improvements? RIP RDRO.

In December: Title update in January.

 

End of January: Title update in coming months.

 

Come on R*...Just admit you gomers have no idea what you are doing or how to go about doing it. Further pushing back of any real updates that are desperately needed, and this game will die.

Somebody at R* just doesn't have a f*cking clue. Moronic management if ever there was lmao. No game fixes, no content, no improvement, just the same ole "please bear with us as we run this game into the ground a few more months".

This is laughable. RDO will be dead before the updates drop. 

 

Also copying and pasting the last newswire post and calling it an update is pathetic.

They are already bribing people with gold to play online. This game might be dead by the time they actually fix the bugs and add content.

My thoughts exactly. Nothing in the "more to come" was actually new, other than the vague release window of "coming months". So is that end of March, or end of June r*?

As I was reading this Newswire I instantly thought this will p*ss players off more than saying nothing.

 

I don't want R* to stop updating us, but they need some actual content to update us about.

 

Laughable.

Yeah that's what they've been doing recently with GTAO, which is years old. The fact that they have to do the same with a new release certainly doesn't bode well.

Except MrBoss and his fellow YouTube "colleagues".

 

They will be making more 10 minute EXCLUSIVE WOW videos.

 

Drop a like and hit that button.

They could also make the bug report site much more user friendly. Gave up when I realized you have to fill in sh*tloads of boxes, provide your username etc. Two boxes should be enough. One with subject line and one with content.

This is almost as laughable as Fallout 76 right now. No roadmap, no sense of direction, no nothing...

It's baffling, it really is. Obviously they're creating a lot of these new features from scratch and I understand this takes time... but where's the bug fixes? Balancing changes? Every 2 weeks now they post an update and it's all stuff that is seemingly months away. We're pretty much at the two months since launch point now and the game has had one economy balancing pass (and it's still not great) and zero gameplay bug fixing or further balancing updates.

 

Maybe they do have a plan or an internal roadmap or something but they need to be transparent (which they probably never will be) cause the only message players are getting from Rockstar right now is "come back in a few months".

 

It's straight up the most mishandled launch of an online game of this type that I've ever seen. I'm almost getting the impression that the vast majority of Rockstar are no longer working on anything Red Dead related and are instead going all-in on getting GTA VI (and GTAO2) out before next-gen or something.

Gonna go out on a limb and suggest they, again, revamp the whole system into more of a "world" build with strong rpg elements (literal role playing not Zelda). Maybe even with static servers or something and permadeath. 

 

GTA with horses is not working, it feels antithetical to what storymode was. Singleplayer was Westworld, and now we're back to free for all pvp match mode for online? Really? It's juvenile, save that for GTA.

I suspect the reason why RDR2 was as successful as it was is due to the fact that (as usual) a third-party entity wrote the script--and the game had to be designed to fit that story.

 

But(!) with RDO, and no Leslie Benzies this time to set direction and ask the tough questions from the player's standpoint, the fail is strong, and it's showing...

I have been as optimistic and forgiving as it comes...

BUT FFS, get your sh*t together R*.

You're making yourselves look almost as bad as Bethesda and Activision at this point.  Do us all a favor and send us our complimentary garbage bags with your logos on it and call it a day.

Back to NBA Playgrounds 2 for me and breaking some n00b ankles...
