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 completely misread. 

 

Wouldn't surprise me if we can trade gold for role tokens once we've got the maximum rank in each role. Otherwise, that'll be where the grind is, getting those tokens. (Much like the casino and the decorations).

 

Though I feel there'll be a gold price too, lol.

Yeah there was me saving up 35k for this update and the roles only to find it'll be role tokens. Still, there will be sh*t loads of clothes, saddles, guns, camp stuff to buy I guess.

I believe they'll be like everything else, from clothes and equipment, to pamphlets. Unlicked to then buy. But how pricey remains to be seen absolutely and I can only hope it's not too silly.

 

With a gold price too though, of course. ;)

Yea maybe, would be unfortunate if that's the case but they say we'll earn gold and cash rewards when doing Role stuff so it might not be so bad.

Not sure how I feel about the whole Twitch Prime and PS4 getting access to a role for free.

 

Twitch Prime can be forgiven as anyone can have access to that... whereas the PS4 free access for the trader is kind of sh*tty when compared. Punish players for not having a platform, why not? Yeah... before anyone says they have that marketing deal with Sony, that was for content to be exclusive for 30 days. Not free (when Xbox has gotten the content is has a price) and not giving access to something for free when the other platform has to pay.

Oh absolutely. GTA has had its issues but as it all grew, money making has too. (I did misread you and change my post above, but in general not much different, lol. Just feel if there's much to buy alongside all the unlockables, and with the honour for gold cart, there'll be a way to pay to skip the more grindy aspects still).

 

I've no issue with it being more flexible like that, just cautious as they are sort of setting the bar with this DLC with more coming. :)

I know 15 gold is the buy in price for the role, but overtime I feel the Collector role might pay for itself depending on how much one plays the role. Trader kinda turned me off, but I will try it just to report back to the thread. Bounty Hunter seems interesting too, but collector sounds like it was meant for the long haul.

Just to pick on this again, re-reading the Newswire article:

 

"Each tier also has a kit of items that are unique to the Role and can be unlocked for purchase using Role Tokens. "

 

Sounds like we'll be paying cash after unlocking them.

 

Now the role tokens sorta feel like an artificial gate that exists only cause the way they did progression was f*cking weird.

Looks like there is 7 items per rank which can be purchased with tokens so that’s 140 tokens with each item costing 1 token each, however I noticed that at rank 12 you are paying 2 tokens per item and I can imagine it will go up again after that with the levels. 

 

For rank 1 you are rewarded 2 tokens and it looks like you are rewarded with tokens for gaining further ranks after that as well.

I'm sitting on 180 gold bars, of which I have to spend none on the roles. And even if I had, it's no big deal. I'm just not sure it's worth it. If I wanna do bunker sales, I'll just log on GTAO.

Cripps Yetarian can go suck my horse's dingle dong! :D :D 

 

The f*cker never does anything right already. Moving camps, packing it up, placing it in horrible spots and all. Now I have to facilitate him in realising his dream? HIS dream??? It should be the other way around. We do the sitting in the camp, he does the hunting, skinning, butchering, riding the wagon to towns to sell and bring the money back to us, while we play fetch with our camp dog. :D  :D

I agree. I'll still try it a few times, but the "Old Ways of Hunting" sound more appealing. I'll probably post what I OFFICIALLY don't like about it besides Cripps and maybe the raids.

Did we ever had a guy like Cripps in GTAO...not someone who does exactly what he does(or doesn't do), but a person/npc we love to hate?

The raids, if those are NPC raiders, can be sorta fun IF you are already at your camp. It's not gonna be funny when you have to ride back to save your camp to defend it. If you can get raided by other players Posses, don't wait for me to start a Traders role (in fact, that's the case already. Don't wait). If it wasn't for the raids and Cripps as your boss, oh and the PostOX wagon to deliver your goods, I'd surely have chosen the trader's role.

I'll just do my regular hunting as per usual, will get the free slab for my camp (since I am on PS4) and roam the world for treasure as a Collector.

I wonder if they'd do trade prices for those not wanting a role/progressing? Gold for role tokens or something. 

 

Anyway, I'm gonna go in positive and get stuck in. I hope that there's many more positive little details to learn that really bring out the life in this. If they can really suck me in like I've wanted, it'd be 15 bars well spent, lol.

 

Though, the arena and such from GTA is a real reminder of how far R* can go, lol. (Along with my caution over gold/etc like here). Seems plenty is coming so looking good. :)

Yea I'm still positive about the update, I think BH and Collector look good and the new unlockables all sound cool and there's loads of them to boot. There's lots of good stuff, just a couple of things I'm a little wary about.

 

One thing I will say regarding GTAO's craycray inflation is that they seemed to take a step back on crazy prices again. In the casino update the supercars were expensive but the more normal cars were priced alright, compare that to some of the prices in the past for normal/old cars and it's a huge improvement. We also saw rewards for playing the through the new content which is good.

 

Maybe there's been a shift in mentality at Rockstar. Or maybe not, lol. We'll have to wait and see as usual.

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.

You get gold for free just by playing the game.  It’s basically no different to a level lock - you just have to pay ingame currency rather than earn experience. It’s a playwall not a paywall.

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

Help text pop ups are completely removable in RDO, thankfully. The game telling me how to hook a fish, after catching 500 fish.. is simply ridiculous. So I finally checked the options, go figure they added the option. One of the best quality of life changes you can make in your game. Especially with more and more things coming into the game ready to flood that system.

So long as it doesn't get as hardcore as the arena's progression system and they heard those complaints, the idea of it was great I felt. A real game within a game, just not as well thought out as hoped, lol. These show much better already by being more specific with unlocks.

 

And definitely sticking with my initial choice of collector role first. I do love the slow plod adventure here (the story collectibles were fun and I love eagle eye). In contrast to GTA:O's pace, it works well. Though bounty hunting could be a fun chase too. All three look interesting but with new cards and balance changes etc. just gotta see how that one plays out as it has potential to go either way. But a good addition for those that enjoy that rush.

Awesome! I must have missed that info if it popped up before. I'll certainly look into that. Thank you! :)

Pay wall is fine. Its Rockstars game, and they intend you to choose a role specialise it. They given you the option to do all 3 if you earn it so be happy with that 

 

They gave us a long period of double dailies so that was a clear hint something was coming.
