Thanks

I am assuming you tried to continue the story and were dumped in free roam?

The obvious difference is free roam vs Land of Opportunities is in free roam in the world you are doing whatever you want, the Land of opportunities missions are the story missions you need to complete.

You may need to  change your honor level to see the remainder of the story missions, so if you are a low honor player then you need to raise it, and the opposite is true, so if this is what you are referring to, then you should be able to adjust your honor either with gold bars or buy earning your honor up or down, then the story missions will continue for you.

If this isnt what you mean then I apologize.

Hi @Rick and welcome to the forums.

As Lumper pointed out, the "Land of Opportunities" missions are simply story missions within the RDO universe (i.e. Free Roam).  This is a continuation of the story that introduced all of us into RDO. 

The Stranger missions are side missions.  Some include characters from the main story, etc.  

If your question is how all this fits together into RDO, that's essentially it.  The story missions are your continuing story while side missions and other activities are what your do in between, before or after.  R* plans on continuing to build upon all off it into the future.  Hopefully, that will include heists like in GTAO.  .....which follows a similar format (e.g. story missions with cutscenes, etc.).  

Like Lumper, I'm not entirely clear either on your concern but I hope between our responses you found an answer.

So that I understand. I use to do Story Missions and Stranger Missions in Free Roam. Now they are in Land of Opportunities?  I've ran across new Story Missions in Free Roam. So I was confused why they added Land of Opportunities if you can do them in Free Roam. Seems redundant.

What I seen is Land of Opportunities is also Free Roam they are the same.

Think I'm confused. lol

I believe @Rick is referring to the main menu startup options.

The "Free Roam" option will spawn you in close proximity to where you last quit the game.

The "Land of Opportunities" option will load you into free roam, but you will immediately be placed into an "On Call Quick Join" queue for a random story mission

I think you may be having the same issue as me. I click on land of opportunities from the start menu, and it takes me into free roam instead. I saw a poster above say that its supposed to do that, but then its also supposed to put you into a queue while you are in free roam, but I dont see a queue placement happen either.

Same for me.

Whether I join land of opportunities or freeroam seems irrelevant. 

Whichever I do, sometimes the story missions are available and sometimes they're not..

No big deal, they're just a distraction from poker anyway!

It has been my experience that when I selected "land of opportunities" option and yet it dumps me in free roam it is because there arent any available "land of opportunity" missions available top me, I had to lower my honor and then when I selected the land of opportunity I was able to go into matchmaking and play the remaining missions.

If that isnt it, I would submit to Rockstar and explain it to them.

Land of opportunities is the stupidest thing. I did the story missions in free roam plus you can re play any story mission you want when you want. Go into menu and select progress and click on story and replay any story mission you want. I bet Rockstar will pull that out after they add more content because it's really redundant unless you're a newbie, but then again the story missions show up in free roam unless they removed them? Or people don't realize they can replay them from the menu in free roam?
