  1. Hi all, thank you to all for the replies to my lack of friends to ride with during GMT daylight hours. Friday evening is always promised to family time. This Saturday 6th April I’m busy so next time I will be online will be around 11am GMT on Sunday 7th April. I hope I will catch up with some of you then. 

    Please feel free to add me on PSN in the meantime.

    Howdy @evilcd all adult posse adding new gunslingers. We don't grieve but won't run either. Do a little of everything. We won't have any racism , remarks about sexual preference , political , or nationality. Anyways if you would like a shot at becoming an Angel Lmk. 

    Hi, thanks for the reply. If my UK - GMT hours fit in with your online time I’d be happy for a trial ride in your posse. My current dilemma is that my majority of friends are based in the USA and our online times differ dramatically.

  3. Hi, I play mostly day time and weekends (UK - GMT) on PS4. I’m level 65 (04/04/2019).

    My aim is to level up gaining XP doing the missions, daily challenges (as little griefing as possible, rather just do the kills one on one between ourselves) & gang hideout clearing. I will always loot corpses where possible & don’t say no to free items in building searches either. The aim is having fun on the journey. I also hunt, gather & fish. I’m not a griefer but happy to hunt them in a posse if they become persistent & annoying, messing up our day but would prefer to leave them alone.

    I would enjoy making new regular online friends to get the most out of RDR2 online either riding out in your posse or in mine. I have a headset & am polite & respectful and English speaking during conversations.

    Contact me (PSN evilcd) if interested.

    Thanks

    So, I was thinking, and yes I submitted it to R* feedback.

    It would be nice to have a food share.

    Today for example, I had to make a choice and in the end I had to leave a 3 star turkey on the ground to rot, instead I noticed a blue dot near me, so I sent him a note and told him, if you want it, I am leaving it here, on the road.

    I cant see wasting it. then it occurred to me, it would be nice to have several designated food share locations, where you can elect to send your extra food, or a way to designate it to a player.

    Player trading and assisting should be a thing,

    with all the hunting we do, it just makes sense.

    I thought maybe leave a food share bin at several locations around the map, or have an option that allows you to either designate an item for the local share or to the nearest players.

    that way a player can alwasy check a food share to see if there is anything in there he or she needs and also be able to use those pelts and carcasses we cant carry, this could also be rewarded with an xp or honor boost for taking part in contributing, or low honor for taking from it, I dunno I think in there is an idea.

    Or even a butcher in every town. Surely towns without a butcher must fancy meat purchasing locally rather than a long journey to another town. In those days frozen food was a like witchcraft, rotten food was the norm.

  5. Many of the above posts I agree totally with. Dot colour seems meaningless nowadays as the daily challenges make you grief and become a red dot on the map just to achieve a challenge then you may be passive from then onwards. On the other hand you see a passive blue dot, continue to hunt, gather around that person and BANG, a bullet in the head because they are completing a daily challenge. This system created by R* seems a farce. I’m happy to work with others to gain the challenges taking turns to drop each other but for some reason mic communication seems to be lacking so this doesn’t seem to be an option.

    What is the answer? 

    A hunter, fisherman, gatherer room only?

    Or

    Change the daily challenges to prevent griefing which R* colour dot system was supposed to do?

    Onto daily challenges and missions. Like was said in previous posts, they’re repetitive, boring, old and dull. I have always asked why do you get rewarded for taking forever to complete a mission when surely the quicker it is completed the better skilled the player. Please correct me if I am wrong and have missed the point there with missions. Challenges are repeated regularly and that rooster challenge is a bore, how many times do you find a chicken coup and no chickens / roosters???!!!

    Things need...no must be shaken up and soon. I use to play daily with a large group of friends. Many have grown bored and are playing other titles, some months, even years old. I play only occasionally now until I find others to join up with or the game livens up again as it is soooooo repetitive.

    Finally on my rant, the XP system. I had goals personally set that kept me grinding out the hours in game. I’m at level 63 now (not very high I know) but until I get to the 80s and 90s the rewards to unlock are in my eyes rubbish. A shirt, a holster, a hat, etc. I understand there can’t be fabulous rewards on each level but come on, you grind out over 5000 XP to unlock a hat?! Even some levels there is only one reward to unlock. Is it worth the hours? I’m not sure. Hence my boredom with the game. I really want this game to succeed and be great, but there is so much wrong in every department.

    I would be very interested to hear others opinions. 

    R* how about Double XP days to help get through these boring levels or think up some new, exciting, useful rewards to unlock so we have new goals to aim for? Or better new challenges and missions...please R* pleeeeaaaase!

  6. Hi, sounds like a fun time is had by all. I’m after new buddies in a posse as my old buddies have grown bored with RDR2 and moved to pastures new. I’m in the uk, online day time and weekends. Does this fit in with your online schedule?

  7. Hi my username is evilcd similar position to you with buddies off elsewhere playing other titles. Im no griefer as I find it very annoying. I’m in the uk usually online during the day and weekends.

    I’m still somewhat new to red dead online and looking for friendly people to play with. Free roam, missions whatever really. I have a mic but not really able to use it much

    Feel free to add me

    Me too, played it this afternoon and it went well.... this evening everything was back to normal online... in fact I think people were killing more people just to get their WANTED status up :(  ..... have finished with the game now, it's just a mess. They are just not listening to what people want.

    Totally agree, so many people interfering with stranger missions. Ok I know it’s part of the game but never had this amount of explosive ammo and dynamite throwing griefing

    Here's the update page link.

    https://www.rockstargames.com/newswire/article/60864/Red-Dead-Online-Beta-Update-Out-Now

    https://support.rockstargames.com/articles/360018964193/RDR2-Title-Update-1-06-PS4-Xbox-One

    As my issues with the game are only with griefing, I can't say I'm happy with what was delivered. As expected, your plans to visit the butcher or a specific hunting/fishing spot can't be plotted as easily as before because you don't know if anyone is around (from far away).

    I do plan on making some purchases I was holding off on though.

    I was disappointed with the update, player icons on the map are now confusing, all different shades of blue including posse members, I saw some purple and anyone who griefed me were red.

    Also I was shot at by another player, I defended myself and killed the said shootee, I received a bounty for self defence?! How is that fair???!!!

    Lastly, trying to do the stranger missions I found near in impossible. Constantly being targeted by posse after posse using explosive ammo and dynamite. Ok I get it is always been in the game, but unless players are deliberately trying for bounty on their head or are bored and need things to do, it just seemed non stop which I have not encountered in my gaming time.

    I just gagged on my coffee.  "Over 300 new clothing items"?  That seems... excessive, even factoring in that the number is far less in reality since they must be counting different color permutations of the same article (i.e. a hat that has six different color configurations counts as "six new items" instead of "one").  Assuming that the average number of color variants for a single article of clothing is what, five or six items?  That's still 50-60 new articles of clothing.

    Edit: I can't wait to dress my character like Colonel Sanders.

    Quite a few say Coming Soon, lots are old items with new colours or materials, I found a lot of items now have the choice of animal skin versions

    I think this is what you may be talking about:

    PS4 Early Access Content
    In addition to new Target Races, PlayStation 4 players will have early access to Open Target Races where you compete in an open space to take out the most targets on horseback. PS4 players will also get early access to the Jawbone Knife, a unique melee weapon with a handle artfully carved from the remains of a slain animal’s jaw, as well as a range of new clothing options and 3 new Emotes.

    That’s the one, thanks

    Now they're pushing that new shotgun with the update..... and Uncle Bropollo LOVES his shotguns (still prefer rifled bore slugs for taking deer here than straight wall rifle rounds), so that's just another reason for me to stick with it.

    I’m finding the pump action fun & a good weapon to have so will have to look into the new shotgun.

  14. Thank you to everyone for the advice.

    I too rarely use handguns but just thought I should upgrade so I am covered for any situation. I have watched on YouTube people get knocked of their horse to get back up & destroy the player as they rush in in a hail of bullets or the power of the sawed off.

    I use the Lancaster (fully upgraded) with special ammo, Pump Action (fully upgraded) regular ammo. I also have Bolt Action (fully upgraded) special ammo. I am currently level 43 & manage to rise one or two levels per day.

    Any more advice regards long arm weapons / ammo / handguns / ability cards is greatly appreciated as I’m not the best shot. Damage & destruction asap is best play style for me.
