RED DEAD ONLINE BETA: PLUNDER SHOWDOWN MODE NOW AVAILABLE (9/4/19)

Recommended Posts

In the Red Dead Online Beta’s new Showdown Mode Plunder, frontier resources are in short supply - work with your team to fight through opposition and capture supplies from a central location to deliver it to your team’s base.

 

In addition to capturing loot from that central location, you can also use cunning to steal it from your opponent's base. But be careful - when holding you'll be visible to all other players. Keep your Health, Stamina and Dead Eye cores filled and use tonics to boost your tank to gold before making a run for packages and take advantage of team-based Dead Eye Ability cards like Focus Fire that lets your teammates cause a little more damage while your Dead Eye is active.

Outfitters across the five states have received the latest shipments of clothing this week: 

 

Owanjila Hat
Porter Jacket
Concho Pants


And as added bonuses this week, access for all coats, holsters, boots & gloves otherwise up to Rank 40 will be available to all players - grab any of these styles until April 15th. For higher ranking players, the Turkoman, Missouri Fox Trotter and Arabian Horses are being lowered to Rank 40, while Volatile Dynamite, Incendiary Buckshot, Explosive Slug, Express Explosive, and Dynamite Arrow pamphlets are all lowered to Rank 60.

Instead of lowering the rank requirements why didn't they just discount it...

People that dont play the game, buy gold bars to get these pamphlets.  People who play heres another adversary mode we know you dont want, deal with it.  Pay to win is even more of a thing here.

The explosive slug pamphlet is still locked to level 84 lol. Was tempted to buy some of those pamphlets seeing as I've not got the rank for some of them yet but 1k for express explosive, yikes. Not sure it's worth it seeing as I don't play anywhere near enough to make that back any time soon.

Ah f*ck it I bought the explosive express and dynamite arrow pamphlets. Not like there's anything else to spend the money on now. Kinda would like  the incendiary buckshot cause it's so fun in SP but I cba grinding for cash and buying the moonshine sounds like an expensive hobby.

Trash, and lowering rank requirements too? Thanks for spitting me in the face for trying so hard to reach the 90’s, R*.

 

I’ve dreaded the day when even the low level CoD idiots would get explosive ammo, but I really didn’t think it’d come this soon.

 

FFS..

Yea, me too and I'm not even level 60, so those pamphlets would still be out of reach even if I wanted them or could afford them, lol. I'm as sure as hell not buying any gold or grinding some lame PvP modes that I could not possibly care any less about. I'm not even going to bother trying; this game will just have to collect virtual dust for awhile, perhaps indefinitely unless they seriously make an effort to drastically change things and stop making it, well.. trash.

The clothing items is OK, never should've been rank locked, you can't get to the cold properly until rank 60 or so when you unlock the outfit.

Horses I don't care.

But the pamphlets, the griefing is gonna be way worse. And the rest, had to level up to 93 to unlock all those, completely BS.

I think people freaking out about the pamphlet levels being lowered are vastly overestimating how much cash people are sitting on. They aren't cheap, someone in the level 60-90 range that couldn't buy them before won't have the cash to suddenly buy them all now and they are very very pricey to buy with gold bars. It won't really change anything.

 

Not that them lowering the rank requirement for a week is a bad thing at all, it should've been done sooner and permanently because they are OP as f*ck and people without them are at a severe disadvantage. Can see why people who grinded the ranks are peeved to see the rank requirement lowered, but in terms of game balance this isn't a bad move.

I was using them last weekend....It was so nice.  It was kind of like when the girlfriend is away and I get to stretch out across the whole king size bed.

You can carry only 10 explosive ammo, 14 incendiary (and you need 1 moonshine to craft 1 incendiary buckshot), I agree the game was always unbalanced. But took a lot of time and "effort" to get to 93, doesn't feel quite right, sorry, all the grind and suddenly is almost half requirements (on rank), is kinda mocking to high level players.  

And I personally don't use that ammo all the time, only to counter griefers in free roam.

That's 4.490 $ in game money ( I think is around 180 gold), so now is pay to win??

What is next? buying with gold upgrades on ability cards??

 

Express Explosive Pamphlet $1,000

Incendiary Buckshot Pamphlet $860

Explosive Slug Pamphlet $950

Dynamite Arrow Pamphlet $895

Volatile Dynamite Pamphlet $785

Yuck, that one was pure bollocks; no thank you!

 

If they are going to continue going down this road, they ought to just copy and paste 'Sumo: Remix' where you're confined to the horse of your choice (without weapons) and the goal is to push the other players and horses off the elevated platform and/or out of the shrinking bubble.

 

Probably wouldn't work as well in this game as I imagine it, but it would probably be better than just another lame battle where everyone is juicing tonics like Lance Armstrong and relying on their godforsaken ability cards. Ugh!

Too funny...I was going to post in the previous thread that we would be getting that mode for sure

This is a problem a lot of games have faced recently. Stuff placed behind a very high level requirement that shouldn't be, but developers are afraid to lower the requirement because it will upset the players that grinded it. My opinion on it is suck it up to be frank, lol. Sh*t happens, you had months of having it before others. If it makes PvP more balanced it's a good move. Like I said, I think the change should be permanent personally.

That's one hell of a leap you've made there seeing as you can't buy ability cards with gold bars at all. There's no indication that's going to happen ever so there's no need to freak out over the prospect of it. If it happens then it becomes an issue.

 

As for pay to win concerns, this has changed nothing in regards to P2W in RDO. It's still rank locked, it's just lowered for a week. RDO is no more P2W today than it was yesterday.

Let me tell you this, is not 1 shot kill every single time, someone with full health and the hat card, you won't kill them unless is at very close range. For any adversary mode, they're pretty much useless, you can only carry 10. Then you need 1 animal fat to craft 1 explosive bullet. I barely see it use people this ammo on PVP adversary modes, I know I don't even bother to use them in adv modes. People on those modes abuse tonics and not explosive ammo. The high lever player are the ones that stayed and play for a long time, so to me and all high level player, I think it feels kind of a mockery. They want to sell gold, is 4500$ in game money, you know how much time and grind it takes to make that, now is pay to win scheme, I don't like that in any game, makes me feel all the grinding is worthless when someone just can buy all that grind with no time played. Yes, it has to do, now a rank 60 can bypass it with gold because is unlocked, once you unlock a pamphlet you can buy it with gold.
