RED DEAD ONLINE BETA – WEEK 1 UPDATE

c6da90647707ecaf3a46a3f0fd6da49946d111c7

We want to thank the Red Dead community for playing and sending us tons of valuable feedback during the first full week of the Red Dead Online Beta’s availability. This feedback is crucial to help shape the game as we move forward.

Today we are starting to implement the first set of adjustments to the game including changes specifically geared towards creating a more balanced, fun and rewarding overall experience, across all modes and missions. These include:

  • Increasing the cash and gold payments across a number of different activities including Free Roam Missions, Free Roam Events, replays of A Land of Opportunities Missions, Showdown Series modes and more.
  • Reducing the prices of most weapons in the Wheeler, Rawson & Co Catalogue and Gunsmiths. For players that have already purchased weapons at the previous prices, we will automatically deposit the difference to player balances starting today - please look for an alert message the next time you log in to the Red Dead Online Beta to notify you of this change, refunds may take up until December 10th to reach all players.
  • Balancing the values of select pelts, skins and fish as well as horse reviver and pamphlets.

Of course our efforts to improve and balance the Red Dead Online Beta will continue. We are conscious of and still evaluating an assortment of further adjustments based on feedback from the community. We are currently working on fixes for some persistent bugs that are causing some players to be kicked from sessions, and we aim to have fixes for these live next week. We will also continue to review all the feedback and suggestions so please keep them coming to reddeadonline.com/feedback

As an added thank you for playing and helping us through the beta period, we're also awarding everyone that joined in to play the Red Dead Online Beta at any point through midnight PST today with a gift of RDO$250 and 15 Gold Bars. Gifts should start arriving today and will hit all eligible players by Friday, December 14th.

Once again, we want to thank everyone for playing the Red Dead Online Beta and sharing their experiences so far with us. There’s still lots more to come so please stay tuned!

Yay!  But I hope fish prices haven't been nerfed too bad!

Sounds like things just got tweaked a bit like you said in another thread.  ......cost lowered, payouts increased, values balanced so they make more sense, etc.  

Regardless of what certain individuals might say, this is not a P2W economy.  Gold bars (for the most part) are limited to aesthetic items which is what R* said their plans were.  Personally, I wish they would have just stuck to in-game dollars like GTA but my gut tells me this is due to some plans they may have to introduce gambling later down the road.

I hope they stay true to that, and they stop at that Gold Bar horse with better stamina and health stats.

Yeah, they had to split the cash for gambling.  I'd rather they do that, and have some MTs than not have poker.  Fair trade IMHO. :)

I's sure they wanted to keep the stock market in GTAO but had to cut it for that reason.  .....can't sell in-game money for real currency and then have folks be able to gamble with it.

The gold bars make sense in that respect.  I just don't like how they are tied to horse insurance currently.  Cosmetics are fine.

You know what's funny.....  The horse I started out with from the first intro mission was about as good as the Chestnut Arabian I cashed in as a freebie.  Trouble is, now my horse gets taken from me for weird reasons and I have to pay 5 gold bars (I didn't have previously) for insurance.  I wish I would have just kept the other horse for now.  I rarely got stuck with the nag and it was available every time I logged in.  .....with the Arabian, I have to go to the stable every time I start a new game to recover it.

Well the one I have beats the one I got from the stealing mission in speed and stamina, I got the worst one from those 4 choices. I didn't know they had different stats when I started so I chose the one I though was more appealing to the eyes.

You mean when you call the Arabian the Scrawny Nag shows up? if so, it's a bug... I posted a work around in another topic:

If that's not what you meant, then ignore this message hahahaha xD

Yeah. Says my other horse is not available.  I didn't have to deal with that with my first horse after the theft mission.  

I'll try your workaround.  ....what a pain in the arse though.  I hope they fix it soon.

look in the quick menu d-pad left in stable you may have 4$ fees to get your horse back, it will take 2 min then you can whistle it.

Thanks. I'll check that as well.

Would this fee go away with insurance?  Curious as to why I would have this fee with my Arabian and not the other horse I had.  ......which I sold like an idiot since I didn't have the money to stable both.

yes should not have fees if you paid for insurances.

Thanks. I paid the $4 and the respawn issue (getting the nag instead of my Arabian) seems to have abated.  ......at least during last night's session.  Also, insurance was now $150 instead of 5 gold bars.
