This is what happens when you fire your lead producer. I'm beginning to think it was the Housers who wanted monetize the f*ck out of their IPs & Benzies pushed back, so they fired him while on vacation. 

 

Regardless, the quality of GTAO has taken a complete sh*t since he was fired. They pushed nothing but Adversay Mode for over a year after he was gone. Now, RDO is following the same path. I mean, whats the missing ingredient, folks? Benzies. They couldn't even get RDR1 to work properly without his help. 

If Benzie was behind RDR 1 multiplayer then let me quote a famous line from Seinfeld: HIRE THIS MAN!

I see Rockstar are hiring for a .NET developer.

 

Let me apply, hopefully get the job and fill you lot in with insider details on what the f*ck they're doing to this game

You'll never work in the games industry again but you'll have the appreciation of all 20 people who still play RDO. 😉

Has anyone else not been gifted the items via post office or camp collection box? Mostly the free fire arrows.

Ok I'll try later, as I'm closing in on rank ninety, a treasure map and the express explosive rounds pamphlet.

I remember reading somewhere that Benzies was very much involved in introducing Shark Cards to GTAO, but yes.. like u said, after he left they started abusing the sh*t out of them. LoL.

Lmao. 

 

More like:

 

High end car (year 1, where like 20 cars were in the game and the best one was some crappy regular sportscar?) - 800k

high end car (year 5: concept hyper car) - 2,4mill

 

same with all the other items. 

Inflation would have happened nevertheless. 

If inflation on a clothing item from 350$ to 20.000$ is ok, is another topic lol

 

You folks overinterpreting Benzies so much, it‘s ridiculous. Cult of personality - nothing else.

So we can't sell cougars anymore? Way to punish all the legitimate players.

 

Bleh. I don't know. I guess at least there won't be people spamming all the expensive stuff carelessly, but I still don't see why they can't just fix the bug - instead of breaking something to stop it.

 

Is there any sign that the rockstar editor will ever come?

Ah, I guess it must've been a very short term thing, or maybe not even on xbox. I just heard someone else saying they couldn't sell them.

Personally I think this dripfeed is just to buy time. The reason for that I don't know.

 

Could it be because they simply want to stretch out the beta because of bug fixes and game stability before they remove the beta tag? Is it because they're unsure of what direction to take? Maybe the next update isn't developing as quickly as they would have hoped? 

 

Any of those reasons could be viable, as could many more we could come up with here. I'm as sure as I can be that buying time is the main aim of drip feeding at such an early stage in RDOs life though.

I think you are right. Think about it...it brings traffic online people waiting for clothing items and checking periodically to see if they become available and trying out the new repeater and once you check in its like well.....let me see what these new modes are about. Now the traffic could be intentional meaning people who wanted to play the game regardless of the update and available items and unintentional which are the people who just check to see if the drip feed opened up a few items they are looking for or just want to test out the Evans and ended up saying well lets play some modes while we are on for a few sessions.

 

Now it could be bug fixes so they are trying to stretch it out to fix them before the beta is over......but we know they won't get this done 100%

So far after this update, in every session I'm in, there are no more cattle, buffalo, and no farm animals. Anyone else seeing any? Why would they get rid of these? Cattle & buffalo were a good source of meat. Guess I'll have to make do with venison.

Wildlife in general just despawns after a while it seems, livestock too. The reasons for this aren't quite clear. I seem to have have very much less disconnects so, maybe they fixed animal spawns to improve overall stability.

I still haven't gotten the free items. The fire arrows being the ones I really want and don't already own. But I gifted myself with the express explosive pamphlet, thirty explosive rounds for my Schofield Revolver, Lancaster Repeater, and Springfield Rifle. Ten animal fat kept as reserves for crafting too.

Yeah, well I bought a new coat. 😏

 

Checkmate.

 

Nah, I'm just kidding. That sounds awesome though. What level are you currently at? How are the explosive rounds?

I made it to rank ninety. Cringed, but still paid a thousand dollars for the pamphlet. I'm holding onto the rounds until some clown decides to come after me, just like the incendiary buckshot in my shotgun...or the explosive buckshot I have, but haven't needed to use yet. I did see a video that explosive rounds were tested out though. Here:

Because they were easy targets for skins?

Cattle especially (or any animal that is penned) because it'll repop the fastest if it's in or near a town.

I avoid the ones near town (Emerald Ranch), cuz the farmhands report you. I hit the farm north of the Oil Fields, usually stopping on the way to snag a buffalo, to cook up a bunch of minty meat dinners.

If you go in the pens you can get them riled up enough they will run out of the pen and then you can kill them without being reported.

The Rockstar devs (back then) were also honest enough to include the phrase  "Extortionate Value"  on their in-game Shark card ads. :)

 

You just have to look closely at the fine line at the bottom; the doors of the unopened Casino in GTA Online still has them displayed. :)

As far as the latest update goes, it's certainly something that is rather lacking, as many of us have pointed out, however I'd have figured they'd easily get some leeway if they went ahead and pushed out the 'Job Creator' of Red Dead Online, be it a 'Showdown Creator' if you will.

 

The reason I point this out is largely because of the potential it has to enable us to create our own fun, PvP'ers and all, since the current selection of Showdowns offered by Rockstar is pitiful, especially considering my favourite mode of Team Deathmatch/Shootout is just limited to one single map, something that actually has me baffled as it does indicate a lack of effort on Rockstar's part, that or they seriously think that limiting content is a viable method of having people 'make up their own fun'.

 

The sad thing is, that actually would be true to some extent if they would simply offer us a 'Showdown Creator' so we could mess about and have fun matches in locations not even given any second glances from before. I say this as a passionate creator from the better, golden days of GTAO back in 2013-15, since I'd love to be able to make all kinds of wacky, interesting and balanced matches for all kinds of players to engage in. Better yet, since there is no exclusive camo for guns in RDO anymore, no more need for the classic 'farm/trap matches' where you know the key to getting into a place of power and slaughtering others helpless for that stuff, something I'm actually glad is not a problem anymore!

 

But yes, the wait for heists would be a worthwhile one, if only we had something meaningful to do inbetween here and there!

First of all I do not have an issue with those who disagree with myself, I only look to correct those who misinterpret or overthink the game. I could say "Hey Jason that's offensive to correct me" but I understand you see a issue and hope I can fix it. I am not a difficult person to conversate with. 

 

Sorry for the slight off topic shenanigans, but pro & X does improve the game. My friends who play on the X, have fluid gameplay whereas my standard ps4 friend experiences issues.

Any more news about if we keep our character and rank when beta is over? 

 

Since they added gold bar store it would seems like we are keeping our characters, if they just not replace the gold and money, like when u delete your character and start over..

 

Want to rank up to get the explosive rounds, but if it’s a chance that the character get reset in the fully version then it’s probably best to wait for the xp grind..

I'm not a gambling man but even I would put money on them not touching progress now. I've said it before but it makes no sense really when you think about it. Beta's typically have wipes because they last a weekend or two at most, so you're only losing a few hours of progress at most usually. Wiping after players have sunk hundreds of hours into the game over several months (and spent money) will only result in one thing, players not coming back.
