It only makes it worse.

Someone kills you, you get butthurt and track them down, they call a friend now it's 2 on 1, you get killed over and over, someone helps you and it goes on from there.

A more simple solution is just to release friendly lobbies.

What in the name of everything has this got to do with the scenario I described that actually happened to me today? And again, what are these "facts" that you quote that determines my mindset as "butthurt". If you can't actually directly answer my questions I suggest you stop dragging this conversation and thread drift ever further. Many thanks, R.

You've made up a scenario that I never described and quoted me in it. And you've stated my mindset based on "facts" you can't declare. So you have no clue of my intent.

 

I'd say you're either a touch simple or a troll. In any case, please stop drifting the topic at hand. I think we've discussed all we can. Thanks, night night x

Complete individual objectives that cover every aspect of life on the frontier to earn Gold Nuggets and XP. Challenges will range from foraging for herbs, selling items at a Fence, hunting and skinning animals, clearing hideouts, winning Feuds and so much more.

 

Well, I exist in RDO to eradicate the wildlife of Lemoyne and pluck the fields dry of plantlife, so any additional bonuses that come as a result of that are welcomed.

I wanted to know much XP, people were earning from Stranger Missions and Free Roam Events.

 

Were you winning 1st place in Free Roam Events like King of the Castle? I read that they earn 2,000~ XP normally. With 2x XP, that should be 4,000~ XP.

 

Showdown Series Large can still go up to 2,000+ XP earned in 10 minutes. Until someone confirms that Stranger Missions and Free Roam Events are worth it, this week. Then I'll change up activity.

We really shouldn't have to pay to force others to play a way we/they might not choose from their options menu. I dislike freeaim myself, so to have another paying to manipulate my game is a joke. Those cards are genuinely pathetic and about as far from the immersive open world I was hoping for pre-release. 

 

But if session choice does come, I can avoid that pay to live/force bollocks. I don't do PvP as is so I'll be avoiding those modes anyway, but still don't want the potential forced on me in freemode. :)

You cant pay real $ for it.   You just have to hit level 50..own slippery card, $50, and unblinking eye another $50, and hunt for tonics.  Its not really that useful, or at least appears that way, in the showdowns...but I was mainly referring to "lobbies" which I take to mean freemode.  I am sure many players can wreck a showdown with it.  I just really havent seen it done, but I have crushed 4 high level players in one go with it.  I am just lazy and prefer auto aim.

 

And as far as forcing anyone goes, there are advantages to both.  I did beat several autoaim players with it.  Was quite fun, but yeah, I am lazy so unless someone is using it against me.  I will stick to autoaim cards.  I think it adds some depth to the combat system that is pretty much untapped at this point.

It's a reasonable thought and it's definitely been the case for other games, over the past few years in particular developers have been terrified of splitting the playerbase. It's the reason why DLC content has become free in most AAA games this console generation, I mean Rockstar admitted it for GTAO too.

 

That all being said while I can understand the concern from a developer point of view, the game has sold something like 23 million copies. It does not lack players, so it's not a reason that's really acceptable for RDO IMO.

Totally agree. Even if only a quarter or third of that 23m play online, we can only have 30 or 32 players per lobby and I believe I read these lobbies are more dynamic to fill up if they are emptied of players in them. (Or something like that).

 

I feel the 'splitting the playerbase' is a poor answer/reason for not adding them.

I wasn't referring to buying cash dude, I mean to get cards to force another into freeaim costs money in game. Those wanting a fluid freeaim experience shouldn't have to pay for it in game nor should autoaim players have their preferences overruled by the card(s) that do that. 

 

But I'm not arguing that others enjoy the way it is too, it's just another reason I believe session choice should come. Keep what's on offer for those keen on the varied nature, add freeaim proper for those keen, and invite/friendly sessions for those guys too. This game could be so much more for all playstyles IMO. :)

select weapons will be re-balanced including the Varmint Rifle, which will have its accuracy brought more in line with other longarm weapons

I was right. All Varmint needed was an accuracy nerf. While some of you guys were debating about whether the Varmint calibre round would hurt or kill someone in real life in the head. And the sake of realism.

 

But, this means that I can no longer rely on Varmint for very easy headshots with Slippery III build. So I might just go back to using Lancaster with Special Ammo.

First they came for the Varmint Rifle ... Wonder which one's next? People will set their eyes on something sooner or later. Hopefully they haven't ruined the gun too much anyway - I can picture trying to shoot some birds, waiting ages for the bloom to settle down; probably get about a quarter of a flock as opposed to half or all of them.

 

Overall, I don't see a lot of actual new content either. I'll wait to judge I guess.

I'm glad proximity blips are being coupled with proximity chat.

 

150m seems like a good range of blip visibility, as a starting point at least. I'm also pleased that the blip darkening and extended visibility is coming alongside proximity blips.

 

The bounty system is as I feared, players can't hunt down and claim bounties. As i, and others here, predicted, bounties trigger what will be an increasingly OP NPC response. The least fun implementation of bounties possible. I know someone who won't be thrilled with this, @Happy Hunter

 

The 20% XP boost across all activities next week is decent.

Yeah that sounds incredibly lame. Could've added a new activity to the game, something it desperately needs. Instead it's just GTA Online style cops.

okay, I guess maybe that does confirm some new coats, though I doubt they'll give us 50 pants, 40 coats, 30 hats, 20 boots 100 shirts etc....a real PACKAGE

I just want that stubble tbh....face first, then clothing!

I don't want to get ahead of myself, but the Newswire screenshot shows some Trapper style clothing. There's a hat with a snakes head and a vest that looks as though it could be gator skin.

I hope this means the Trapper will be added 🤞

 

I really want some of the SP style cold weather trapper clothing like moccasins, chaps, vests, coats and hats

Let‘s hope for trapper! Then I‘ve got something to do until I unlocked all clothing items. 

Want the muskrat hat so badly!
