If this goes back to the way it was, I'll go back to playing sports games and GTA, and I'm sure others will too. This is so fun the way it is, why would anyone wanna go back to all that frustration? I really hope this is intentional.

Ah, see what you guys mean now.

 

Got in lobby last night, me and one guy. A bit later, two guys. It was nice, in a way, seeing not asingle player on the map the whole session.

 

Usually, I see twenty five plus. That is even after work, at five thirty AM central.

When they're fixing the game, to bring it back to a more broken state, you know something is not right. How ridiculous is it, when taken out of context, that someone would make an effort to put things a certain way even though doing so will ruin what they are working on, just because they MUST have it fit their vision, regardless of what that might mess up. I am dumbfounded.

have you ever seen a guy hanging upside down from a tree? I just have. shot him down, then had the option to either accept or decline a reward. accepted, and he gave me jewelry (silver locket something). also, ran into a legendary elk and got me that pelt.

 

all thanks to small lobbies!

Encountered this guy yesterday also. Near Rio Del Lobo Rock, had 3 Coyotes harassing him as he dangled. Killed the Coyotes, shot the rope and accepted the reward, got some earrings.

I'd put nothing past them honestly. Though I'm only a fanboy when it cones to story mode as those are awesome. :)

I’m seriously at my limits with this moonshiner business that Rockstar refuses to fix. It’s not supposed to happen since there’s literally only one other person in the lobby, but it did, that dreaded infinite loading screen that keeps haunting me.

 

Rockstar will prioritize “fixing” the low-population sessions and keep ignoring this bug for-f*cking-ever. I have so much good stuff stowed on my horse whenever it happens as well.

I know this is controversial but am missing the other players in lobby’s not for the pvp tho it’s always nice handing out a ass kicking to a tryhard but just player interaction this game has turned into a single player game and I find it boring if I wanted to play on my own I’d play story mode

When I finally got the game to load I got a 7 player session, later 5, and 2 at the end.

 

I did all the non pvp dailies, 5 random moonshine missions, 1 hideout (looted a map), and 1 random poacher mission, rescued a runaway wagon, there was a duel fought just as I delivered my shine to Van Horn Saloon, rescued a tied up girl near the main intersection in LeMoyne north of the river, and failed a camp defend because I ran out of revolver ammunition (of which I started out carrying 200) and got killed while trying to switch to a lesser grade and the campers were toast, then another hideout.

I bypassed another random poacher because I had very little revolver ammo left.

 

The first random shine mission was in Lakay, and the Florida Panther mauled me, finished the mission, went to Harriet and got sprayed, the first hideout started almost immediately...in Lakay again, another Panther mauled me again, both times during broad daylight!

I haven't seen that panther in months before today.

 

There's actually almost too much stuff to do in these low pop. sessions.

Exactly!

Random missions everywhere, so many you just can't do them all, or at least you can't do them and keep up your planned activities (dailies, hunting for the camp, etc.)

 

When you do run across other players, it becomes kind of a special event.

So far they've always been at least uninterested, if not actually friendly.

 

I suspect it's the same with all of them: they're just trying to make the most of it while it lasts.

That's what it should be like. The world was dead and boring before and fear it's going back on Tuesday.

The ones that don't allow you to join friends. Just like they were with the big broken update from a couple of weeks ago. Seems like they are tinkering and have broken things even more. It only became possible to join a friends posse or load on a friend a couple of hours ago.

I do hope so. I play Red Dead online because I like interacting with other players. If I wanted to play on my own then I would stick to story mode.

It's weird how some people experience something and others don't. Makes one wonder just what is causing the problem for those who have it.

There are other games out there.

 

If I wanted to play with little kids I'd go to a kids day care center.

My character looks looks nothing like the protagonist in Red Dead. My character doesn't act like the protagonist in Red Dead.

 

I think the main protagonist in Red Dead is an axxxxxe. As axxxxxxxs go, he's a nice one but an axxxxxe nonetheless.

 

I didn't buy the game for offline play because I knew it was going to be my opinion of "on rails." Offline, your character does certain things at the beginning, follows certain steps to move the story along, and then has a scripted end (or one of a couple). I've been gaming a long time. I've been on those scripted rides many, many times, playing that same old typical protagonist before.

 

Online lets me avoid most, if not all, of that and that's why I purchased the game. That's also why I personally don't really feel the connection between offline and online mosttimes.

They already deserved all the sh*t they got over them in the past year, but if they revert back to what it was a few weeks ago, it will be impossible to give them any credit ever again.

It would be the clearest of indicators that R* value the ideology of their vision over the stability of the game and the experience that would please the majority of players.

 

Unless R* can make the game work as it does today with 20+ players in a lobby, they can't "fix" it without looking foolish.

the thougt of "play story mode, if you want to play alone" is so unfinished....

 

multiplayer is not only PvP, it also contains coop.

have you ever played the story with your friends? no? because multiplayer is made for this ;)
