I think there will possibly be a new pass every update, however I don't think that R* will necessarily make it more difficult to get through the ranks.

 

Difficult progression isn't really the point of these passes, if a pass is long and arduous to progress through, meaning that many would fail to reap all the rewards, then how many of the players failing to see it through would refuse to buy into any subsequent passes.

 

Easy progression, rewards every rank, xp boosts once purchased and recouping the initial expense make these passes very tempting, so tempting that maybe some players who are new to the game and who don't have the buy in fee might buy gold to then buy the pass, which is what T2 especially would want.

 

I can see the buy in cost being raised from 35gb, but I don't forsee the next pass being much more difficult, if at all, to rank up and complete. 

 If anything I'd like to see more levels. I had a wonderful time with the Outlaw pass. Won't use many of the cosmetic items (Death Ram's Mask is a WIN), but they gave a LOT of cool usable items, like ammo packs & herbs for crafting. I already miss those, lol

Yeah, more ranks could be a possibility, within reason.

 

I was sceptical beforehand and don't use the cosmetics in the most part, but as long as the buy in price and levelling are kept reasonable and on the easier side of achievable I'll be buying into these passes in the future without a doubt.

Even at same levels in the next one, it would anyway be harder to finish tho. At least without any new roles (or role ranks) that gives extra xp.

Because its limited time only. Meaning I am forced to play the game at a certain speed to maximise my earnings from the Pass. Thats a grind.

 

If I could drop the 35 Gold and unlock the stuff at my own pace be it in a month or a year then I would have no issues.

Dont take long to reach level 70 needed its a 1000xp per level so 70,000xp took me 2.5 real life days

I realise that now. Knowing R* I was expecting it to be like the normal levelling which is very slow. I was expecting them to want us to level up another seventy times.

Even if they did, I'd still be able to make it before the Outlaw Pass ends. I've leveled up 34 ranks since this update, all thanks to a metal detector. Keep searching for treasure with it would add up another 36 ranks fairly easy before November.

I don't think character rank will ever be attached or equated to future pass ranks, it would severely punish long term players due to the increasing amount of xp needed to rank up our character.

 

They are kept separate in other games for the same reason. Battle passes are meant to be fairly easy to progress through, if they weren't they'd never catch on.

 I happen to be rank 274, almost 275. It takes me almost a week to level up now. If it were tied to rank leveling, I'd be up the wrong creek without a paddle. I was not the fastest, most consistent player since the update, but it took me about a week to max out the Outlaw Pass. & I'm tickled pink by that. Super do-able for casuals within that time frame.

They are meant to stimulate microtransactions, so if they are too hard to benefit from, no one buys in. Most of us here can easily buy one from our gold stashes and function as display cases for the newcomers in town, who don't have those stashes available. So yeah, they'll never tie ranking a pass to character rankings.

Battle Passes aren't meant to be a close call thing in regards to whether you complete it or not. Of course Rockstar could twist them into something out of the norm, but that remains to be seen and is just wild speculation right now but yea. Active daily players are expected by the devs to be able to complete these passes with a significant amount of time to spare, it's not unexpected.

Just hit rank 60 and it's only been three weeks since release.

At this point, I'll hit rank 70 next week.

It's funny how people thought it will be so grindy no one will reach rank 70 until late October.

I have only played on weekends and I have already reached level 70.
I guess people thought they were +70 levels of your current level (mine 169) , that would have been hard. (I think that im 181).

Nevermind, I just hit rank 66 😅

At this point, I'll reach rank 70 in just a couple of hours.

I don't think anyone anticipated the amount of XP gained from the roles. The Collector alone was probably 90% of of the pass XP for me.

That's the funny part, people won't complain if they had an idea of how much xp we could earn.

I think they'll increase the xp needed to level up in the next pass from 1k to 2.5 or even 3k, or may will nerf the xp from the roles cuz R*...

I could be wrong, but I really can't see it.

 

As I and others have already said on this subject, being difficult or laborious isn't really the point of these types of in game purchases. R* want them to be tempting to purchase and easy to complete, they want the daily players to complete them quickly and become show ponies for the attached content, they want lower level and more casual players to purchase a small gold bar bundle because they can't wait to get in on the action, it's a great gateway into microtransaction purchases.

 

If R* made the jump from a 70k XP pass, which we've got now, to a 210k xp pass, as you suggest, the number of players making the purchase would nose dive.

 

It's just not in the best interest of R* to do such a thing.

Rockstar doesn't worry about how quick you can rank up all ranks for the pass. All they care about is that you pay 35 gold bars for it and be happy with the goodies you get, flaunt them and tell everyone how easy it is to get it all so they spend 35 gold bars on one too.
