RED DEAD ONLINE BETA UPDATE (5/3/19)

Just seems overly complex for my simple brain.

Previously, it was easy to follow - above 75% stamina, card is enabled.

I also think R* have overcomplicated it, seems like it should be two separate cards, one which works exactly how Peak Condition use to work and another for the decreased stamina drain while sprinting.

 

Or, maybe add the stamina drain perk to To Fight Another Day, so players would get reduced damage while sprinting and reduced stamina drain.

 

That's if it was really necessary to change Peak Condition at all, which I'm not totally sure it was.

I want to love this game, but I just don’t anymore.

 

It’s not that I hate it - I just don’t like it, it’s become boring and it feels like a chore - something no game would ever strive to be.

 

I was an ultimate edition early adopter and, I admit, at first I galloped around to and fro looking for things to shoot & kill and became a little frustrated until I began to “feel” the game… I slowed down, took my time and looked around me.

 

The graphics are stunning, the panoramic vistas, the shading & light through the trees and onto the grasses and flowers, the fluidity and natural movement of the animals (excepting the weird bird take off - i acknowledge it must be hard to achieve but, devs, if you could do it - wow) - all of it was breathtaking (in 4k) and I thought, “this game has it all, an open world, beautifully designed, where you can do anything - if you want to take the high road and be a marshal or a rancher, own property, gain respect and enjoy your daily activities or take the low road and be an outlaw or a highway-man and fight everyone and maybe live in a cave! And build interesting actions between the two groups (hey guys, there’s a bunch of bad un’s over in Valentine - let’s form a posse and go git em). Or maybe you could be a hunter/trapper and enjoy the quiet life - anything felt possible.

 

So I played through the main story line twice, taking more and more time on each chapter, gathering my little pelts to fix up the camp and build my satchels - having a wonderful time (despite some truly stupid missions - the drunk one, the serving drinks one and the whole Guarma sojourn), and this was before online kicked off.

 

Online seemed like the go to me, this was where all the good stuff was going to happen - the story line was great but online was going to be amazing. And so I jumped head first into the grinding, quicksand of drudgery that is Red Dead Online (beta) - wtf with the “beta” tag - betas last for a weekend - not 4 months & counting. Own your work boys & girls - it’s either a game or it is not - definitely not a beta if it has mtx and dripfed cosmetic content.

 

So off I went dragging my arse through the same 5 mission ad nauseam (you can not play that railroad track mission twice - far out, it’s just annoying), shooting every animal in sight to get xp and trudging around this still beautiful world. Got to level 88 and it just started to sag. It was all too much dreariness and repetition. But I still believed the hype, it was all going to get better - an update was just around the corner - I’ll get my badge and my ranch - it’ll all be milk & honey.

 

But no, first drop is an unusual BR where everyone simply runs to the middle (?), next is the gold shop (of course) and then…. nothing. The forums tell the tale - pelt stealing butchers, horses that just won’t commit, disappearing fauna, stubble that won’t grow and, the biggest gripe of all, that seedy underside of human nature, the snivelling cur who sneaks up and shoots you in the head whilst you are going about your business. Now I don’t mind if people want to have a go, just step up, stake your claim and we’ll throw down - but don’t be a snake. Stand up for yourselves.

 

So first “big” update (in month 4) is some hats, some coats, some so so guns, a flawed blip system (I don't think I need to know there are some naughty folk in Valentine whilst I'm hunting in Lemoyne - tell me when they are heading my way otherwise I feel the need to constantly check the map - and on that - why 2 clicks to get to the map? seriously, i look at the map more than I ever change POV) and then a list of daily chores which seem to focus on exactly rewarding the irritating behaviour that everyone wants to eradicate - what the hell guys?

 

I just can’t do it anymore - I log on for a moment, pat the horse, clean the guns, look at stupid Cripps (he must have some better purpose), sigh, and then log off again.

 

Who is really thinking in your shop? A company such as yours should have the breadth of experience and capacity to do a whole lot better with this magical environment you have created. Have a meeting, push back on all the “out of world” competitive modes and get some focus back on utilising this beautiful world and providing some fun for all the people who have invested in this game. Give a little back - forget the bucks for a moment - think legacy…. build something for the people.

 

If not, then see ya - I’m off to have a go at The Division 2 - maybe those guys learnt something from the belittling experience of early Division days - they worked out how to turn a bad game around…. hope to hear some good news soon…. bye

Hopefully we'll finally get that fishing free mode challenge.

Other than that, surely R* will at least start to unlock some of the new clothing.

So, I thought that the 5 daily challenges that we need to complete to get the special spinner were the full 7-challenges and then I just forgot about it.

But I just read on the last page someone mentioning that we can do any 5 from the 7 challenge list, right?

 

Does anyone know when this ends? I really want to try and get a special spinner for free, lol. I wonder if this ends tomorrow?

 

btw, I know I’m late, but did they nerf Slow and Steady? I played a little the other day and some dude had no problem killing me even while I had it activated. What the hell? Did they f*ck it up? Why am I dying with only one shot while having Slow and Steady activated?? Damn this was really, really frustrating.

Bloody stupid this game is you get one shotted with slow and steady and i cant kill a one shot, both using explosives LOL 

 

Just shows how f*cked up the game is 

 

explosive ammo and all ablitie cards should never have been in the game they aint real for the era and to me it shows the way R* is thinking and what may come in the distant future unfortunately.

Neither was a magical GPS system. It's a video game. It's not meant to be historically accurate down to the most granular level.

I get it. When you're on the receiving end of explosive ammo or ability cards which outmatch yours, it sucks. I've been there.

You can either continue to complain, or work out ways of countering this stuff. I've done precisely that (though it doesn't work 100% of the time).

However, I agree that these things are a sign of what R* may plan to introduce in the future.

Did they shoot you with bow headshot? It's one shot against slow and steady, if you don't have hat 🎩 on.

I'm pretty sure he wasn't, man. I'd see the explosion right? I engaged in a fight with him after the first kill and never saw it.

Actually no, it was a gun. I can't remember which one (I think it was a Repeater? not sure), but I'm sure it wasn't a bow. But yeah I don't have the Never Without One perk yet. But this didn't happen before the update. I remember that I could just activate SaS and just ride through players without much concern. It seems to be radically different in my experience now.

I think the answer to your question requires some detailed testing of different cards with different weapons against the cards you're running.

Bit of a cumbersome affair I suppose, but otherwise it's just speculation.

I guess you’re right, also I should’ve paid attention at least to the guy’s rank as well ( I didnt lol).

 

I guess it could’ve been Landon’s Patience (maybe Peak Condition) + Express rounds or something like that? I dunno if that would be enough to kill someone with Slow and Steady activated tho. Im guessing it is now, at least I wont 100% rely on SaS anymore.

I think someone like @Ektope might be your man to answer that one. He's had far more PVP experience than me and as such, probably more in-depth knowledge of card vs card.

I switched from SAS to Slippery Bastard a while ago. Disable it when they're not expecting it and auto-aim them.

I'm sure SAS still has its benefits, but if half the lobby is using it, then there's no variety of opportunity.

I've heard Focus Fire 3, when paired with other damage cards, can enable a one-shot, though haven't tested.

Yes we want more cloathing! 

 

When we talk about fishing challenges i must say the fishing gameplay in this game is pretty good, compared to the other pure fishing games rdr looks awesome. 

 

I would like to see a draw mode coming soon also, a mode u can join, or that you can challenges other players in free roam, specialy the one that kill you for no reason 😁

I do often find myself playing this and being pretty bored but I still love being in this world and that’s what keeps drawing me back. Rockstar really did knock it out of the park with this open world. Hopefully they surprise us all tomorrow. I was looking forward to the dynamic events and the fishing challenges.

Mhm. There's still so much potential there for something really unique (and not a GTAO reskin). Just loading it up and wandering about brings a whole load of "what if's" for me, but this isn't a 5 year old GTAO it's a game that's still in beta so in theory they can still fulfil all the games potential. But that's another big what if, cause we have nfi what their long term vision for RDO is.

I don't expect it to happen, but I really hope R* release all the locked clothing at once (preferably today), instead of f*cking around dripping one or two items at a time.

The tunables have been updating slightly later recently, if I remember correctly. 

 

But yeah, at some point over the next 2 hours I'd expect some clothing unlocks and/or a new game mode/fishing challenges or whatever.

There's a post on Reddit saying a few items of clothing have been unlocked. Image of the Winter Shotgun Coat, showing locked but available to buy with Gold Bars (still level locked to the player in question?).

 

I think they might be confused and the tunables still haven't updated. But, is anyone in game and available to check?

 

Edit: Doesn't matter, post already removed from Reddit. Tunables not updated.

Let's see: The Danube outfit (hitched skirt can also be bought separately), squat stovepipe hat, gardenia hat, winter shotgun coat, and the tied pants. 

 

Sadly the concho pants, benbow jacket, and ortega vest are still unavailable (the items I'm waiting on).

Thanks @alex1055. I'll pick up some tied pants, I've been waiting for those. I'm disappointed that the Benbow Jacket is still locked.

 

If you get a second could you check out the Pelt Half Chaps for me, please?
