Given how big a topic this is at the moment, I thought it best to move discussion here to keep the other thread for update discussion.

 

Keep it civil. :)

Been a while since I checked... pretty sure I was above 200 when I let my daily streak drop early in the summer. It was pretty easy to stack em up between all the giveaways and a month or so at maximum daily bonus. Lack of things worth spending them on helped too...

230 exactly, lol. I'm cushty. (Near 6k cash too - So much for poor cowpoke, lol).

 

It's a strong buy in for sure, especially for anyone wanting all 3 roles and not getting other perks. 

 

But, as Thanos said. Inevitable.

Its silly to have spread the stuff out and lock it behind multiple Gold bar costs. You should have been able to pay a Fence fifteen Gold Bars for info on all three.

That's a fair point, for anyone wanting all 3 roles. From what I can see it's going to take a fair bit of work to progress in each role. Will most people pick their most desired and work at that and go back to others later? Or will (most likely) people want to try each one out first and pick one to pursue, or indeed to pursue all three simultaneously? Different options.

 

I think the vast majority of RDO players are also GTAO players. If gold is valuable collecting cards in GTA can be done in less than an hour. Easy

 

The PS4 is a problem obviously for others but such is marketing and business deals.

 

Twitch Prime? I dunno, from reading here and elsewhere it seems alot of the player base took advantage of previous incentives so this shouldn't be a pay wall to many more.

 

To stick my head above the parapet and get bitch slapped, I'd say having read the poor cowpoke forum, most have vast hoardes of gold to hand, as a result of 9 months of play with little to spend on. Of course Rockstar will take advantage of this, if the market is flooded in a particular commodity, it's value is lessened. Gold now isn't worth as much as it was at launch. 

 

An expensive buy in? Definitely. Avoidable? Possibly.

Honestly, relative to GTAO buy-in's it's actually not bad. The issue is that it's the premium currency which can't be earned at the same rate cash can be unless you have streaks.

That's my point though. It doesn't seem to be premium at the minute. Hard earned yes, but if everyone has loads it's not premium anymore. I'd be interested to see what breakdown the poll gives when there's a decent sample.

525 bars. 

 

The trader is free to ps4. For the collector it is free if you collected all casino cards in gta.

Heists were only 200k minimum as the first buy in content, and I more mean if this is the start of an increasing buy-in (as we should get richer as we progress of course).

 

GTA's went up 5 fold over time and it's a scary thought is all, lol. Also, as it this games first buy in content, (aside the perks, which Xbox gamers can't obtain all of), I would have hoped this first set be a bit cheaper to give the game another promotional push too. 

 

And if this is that cheaper push, that's very scary going forward, lol. Luckily I'm one that can put in the time and progress as it grows, but in a year or so, it'll be hardcore for new players then. 🤣

So, I checked the Rich Outlaw v Poor Cowpoke thread. Of the 47 players who gave their earnings, the total was 15,334gb. That's an average of 326.25 per player. Obviously there are big differences, the highest was 1065, the lowest 2 (sorry @VercettiGuy

 

So if the player base has an average of 326 gold bars, the 45 'buy in' works out at 13.79% of total income.

Can't take a dedicated fan forum as the norm for stuff like that. It's such a tiny sample size as well.

I am at 150.47 bars.

I have been spending them quite a bit lately, but with the added bonus I am still gaining more than I am spending.

 

I am going to be spending A LOT of the gold on the new cosmetics. But, that is the reason why I have been "saving" them 😃

 

Bring on the satchels and bandoliers! =D

I had 50+, because I barely mess around with gun metals and premium clothing - but I halved that recently, because I wanted to buy the "travelling opulence" camp theme, and considering how much gold I make versus how much I ever spend, compared to how much more I need to prioritise $$$, 25 gold bars is actually less of a big deal than $800.

 

I'm holding out on doing any of the roles until I see how much R* locks you into everything - if it's the same one-way system as GTAO's businesses (where you can't sell anything if you get buyer's remorse, and it becomes a permanent, defining part of your character), then I'm possibly not doing any of it (which means RDO is pretty much done for me - just like how GTAO more or less got preserved in amber around the time of FAFF). But 15 gold isn't terrible for buying a bounty hunting permit - and I already got the collectible cards in GTAO, so the collector's bag is free (I'd have preferred something more cool, like a new outfit, for getting those, though!).

 

Could be worse, IMO - although if you don't play GTAO, and want to do all three roles, it is going to get pricey, definitely.

5 bars a pop sounds ideal, especially if they go for 7 roles in time. It'll be 105 bars for all seven roles, if that's the plan, lol. Ouch! Poor noobs.

 

I do anticipate regular pop ups until each is bought too. :(

I do feel it's a very strong perk just for being on one platform over the other though. The twitch one is my only hurdle (but given how much free gold I've been given, no biggie). But at least the twitch one and card collecting are available to all players if they choose.

 

The console exclusives we've had and any further cosmetics I don't mind, but to skip a buy in at 15 gold is huge compared, lol.

Agreed, but that's the only information available. This topic was created discussing the comments in the other topic that 45gb was possibly too much. I'm simply comparing the information available in these forums. In one topic 45 is too much, in another people have an average of 326.

Difference is that thread was created during a time when the majority of people still discussing RDO here were actively playing, todays news brought in a bunch of people waiting for the update.

Maybe. Like I say, id be interested in the poll but 40+ isn't indicative either. So there is no way of accurately knowing if it's expensive for most people or not

Still 350ish, don't know for sure cause I've been revisiting Fallout 4 the past couple of months due to there being f*ck all to do in RDO atm. Due to PS4 and Twitch I'll only need 15 of those bars for the trades.

It's only a hot topic for a select few, most of us don't give sh*t, especially when your gold bars are at 705Fortunately, for being on PS4, having Amazon Prime and having found all 54 cards on GTAO, I don't have to spend any of it.

 

In all serious though, from what I've seen on this forum, most have plenty of gold. And most have been hoarding it, and cash, just for this update.That, plus there really wasn't anything to spend it on.

 

Everyone needs to stop looking at "45", unless you plan on doing all 3 at the same, which will get you nowhere on each one real fast. I plan on starting with the Collector and maxing that out before I choose another. So even if I were new or didn't have a lot of gold, that would give me plenty of time to earn more.

Yeah, I can understand people who weren't actively playing finding it expensive versus those who have been finding it piss cheap. What did they expect, stop playing and be handed free stuff when DLC dropped? 🤔

I have a feeling it's gonna be super costly once you purchase whichever role . The dog is gonna be like 500-1000$ cash , all the small features needed are gonna be through the roof like lasso.

From the way they worded it I got the impression that this stuff is unlocked with Role tokens which you gain by progressing through the Roles.

I think your right and it'll be too costly to take on all three. I was thinking the collector would be the best bet to start building up cash and more gold and get a handle on things  . 

Yeah maybe your right I guess we will see. It could go anyway
