Thank you level 20s for just purchasing the game and here is everything for free to catch up

For all of you that have owned the game from day one should enjoy being rich, bored, and aggravated.

 

See you next Tuesday when we polish this turd again with free vests and explosive ammo.

So I'll log in, get the free ammo which I will leave in my camp box until the game is actually working, then log out. I will never claim the Schofield revolver, just one more thing to clog up my inventory. I already earned the Navy revolver, and not only much prefer it, but it has more meaning to me from having done the work to obtain it.  I've already had the varmint rifle pretty much from the beginning, my wife paid extra for the game for me to have it available, to now be given away free.  The new clothes for the most part are meh.   
I have had the game for over a month now, and am still low enough level to receive all the rewards, because the game has been largely unplayable for me for most of it, so I am still rank 11, the rank I was when I started having all the unresolved issues.  Since I cannot stay logged in long enough to even reach my camp, what good does it do me to upgrade it? I don't have much in the way of money, as I can't work any of the trades due to the bugs, or even join a posse to help others for trades credit, so there's no money to purchase the upgrades anyway. 
Other than the occasional log in to bank the seemingly endless supply of "thank you" (for not assaulting our corporate headquarters with torches and pitchforks) gifts, this game is shelved.  My wife even asked me the other day if we were ripped off by RS, since she hasn't seen me playing or heard me even mention the game in weeks. I am starting to feel like we have. I can be very patient, but there is no communication from RS on these issues, which is never a good sign. If this continues, I will just archive the files to clear up drive space, and it will take a heck of a lot to make me go through the trouble to re-install it. I am not expecting all the issues to be fixed within a week, but I do expect that in a case like this that has broken the game for many, that there would at least be some communication to the players as to the progress they are making in hunting down the issues, etc.

I was doing my normal searching of the web for anymore information as I always do, sometimes I feel like I could find Bigfoot riding a unicorn easier, though I did come across this on another website that was going through today’s weekly update. I take it with a huge grain of salt but I’m pathetic and also allow it to give me hope

  • Rockstar also teased upcoming updates, including the addition of the following:
    New Frontier Pursuit Roles
    New Missions
    Significant Updates

Well I know this letter is fake. Rockstar would never sign anything with love! It would probably be signed :

This is Bull***** !!   We want major fixes to the game bcoz since the Role update the world is a DESERT !!!! Its soo painfull to roam the swamps that are literally empty !! No Gators, no boars, no foxes and other only some birds and thats it. Dynamic events close to non existant, stupid posse daily challenges that cant be done, disconnects, dual weapons switching to one hand every time and much much more. 

I have stopped at rank 310 and log only to make one daily to keep the streak going but im close to breaking it bcoz i dont have ways to spend my 820 gold bars and tens of thousands of dollars.....   New clothes, usless camp dog discount? (Never been attacked in camp by NPC's and yeah.... i played a lot). 

I still love this game and play Story Mode to complete all my acheivements (currently on 94% completion aiming for 100% and 3 more achievemnts to have all of them) and i cant understand why they didnt take the good things from the SP mode an implement them in Online???? I mean the story mode world is so much alive and even the NPC's are much more challenging to killl. Yesterday i shot a crane and it fell near the swamp bank - i was almost there to collect it and a gator jumped out of water and took my bird. When i resumed playing story mode a week ago after a few minutes of playing i came across a herd of turkeys making their turkey sound's and then i realised i havent heard  that sound for weeks playing online - that is how bad it is with animals in game now and they keep ignoring it for MONTHS !!!!!! now. 

So yeah take ur update up your *** R* im not intersted in playing Online anymore. We asked and reported the problems and they are ignoring us. So for me playing max 2 h story mode and waiting for Cyberpunk 2077......   Still dont understand how can you mess the online mode so much having a pearl that is Story mode. 

No offence to new players that are happy with the updates and discounts.

R* seems to be to busy congratulating themselves at the moment.   They claim RDO and GTA O have seen its biggest number of players ever.   Totally sweeping all the issues under the rug I guess.  

Most of the issues no doubt stem from R* not wanting to use dedicated severs and using the P2P connection model.  Which is also something thats caused massive amounts of problems with GTA O.. and still does.

 

Dealing with R* support always.. always ends with them telling you to fix YOUR sh*t.    I remember them pulling the same sh*t with GTA O years ago.

But like I keep saying.  At least GTA O has lobby option.  

I honestly can't believe that they still haven't fixed animal spawns.. or at the very least, added private lobbies.  What is their ****ing problem?  

They claim its because they don't want to split the player bases, but the player base is split on the amount of players in a lobby anyways. So WTF are they talking about?

I think I may be in the minority, but....

I hope they keep the lobbies the way they are. (But fix animals of course)

Its important to have an element of danger and uncertainty when you're out there I believe.

I just see it working out that if I join an open lobby it would just be purely a pvp fest. 

If I go private it's boring eventually. 

 

I guess I like wondering if that player is gonna shoot or wave.

I have no problem with Free Roam either as I believe they've done a decent job at mitigating the griefer issue at least on console.  What some fail to understand is that you still need to be proactive in your approach to activities, around randoms, etc.  I'm not sayin it's perfect but then again, R* continues to tweak it and so far, I have been happy with the direction they are going with RDO.  .....way different than GTAO in this regard.  RDO never did follow those footsteps nor did it turn into the apocalyptic mess some had been continually predicting since the beta.

I'm not necessarily against private lobbies but I also have concerns that the addition could change the role of Free Roam in the game.  ......like becoming more of a PvP affair with possibly certain anti-griefing features being removed or new ones added that favor PvP, etc.  Also, if they use GTAO as a model, players won't be able to access a good portion of activities, business or roles, etc. while in private sessions.  If they continued with the current vision of Free Roam while adding a private option, I guess I'd be fine with that.

Also, I said it before and I'll say it again, but if R* simply fixed some of the more current, glaring issues (e.g. animals spawns, disconnects, camp issues, etc.), I think most would be quite happy with that.  Hell, if they simply fixed  the animal spawns I'd wager there would be a lot less animosity flowing around here.

Well, nothing would be stopping anyone from playing in private or public lobbies.

The element of danger would still exist in private lobbies.  Hostile NPCS and animals would still exist.   And some people would actually use private lobbies for pvp.  And do other dumb things (That don't required randoms)

I mean, sometimes player might just want to fish with friends for a bit and don't have time for a 1 hours explosive ammo/arrow tonic chugging battle with other players.

 

There would be other ways of enticing other players into public sessions.   Like special events that only take place in free roam.

 

I mean, I agree.  I like playing public lobbies for the same reason you do.  But sometimes, I don't really care for others to be around as they just ruin everything.

Oh boy! 25% off camp dogs. Give me some real camp protection.......Then we'll talk.

They just have to tweak the dogs a bit to be more improved. I like the idea of having a canine protector but the damn dog I have doesn't seem to do anything.

It seems to me there is a very simple fix... limit the servers to 15 players or less

...This game :(

 

I got into a solo session last night by pure luck.    Everything works perfectly.  Camp worked, Bounty Boards worked, animals everywhere, gang hide outs and random stranger events everywhere.

About 45 mins later, I noticed things started to act wonky, clunky and less animals..  I instantly  Checked the player count.  FULL!    

I mumbled **** IT and instantly shut my game down.  

 

Wonder how long R* expects players to put up with this crap....

Too much $$$. Especially as they screwed themselves on micro-transactions giving away gold too easily.

I'm amazed every time I log on that the lobby has 24+ players - are there really more players wanting to play now than when it actually worked? I can only assume they actually reduced the number of servers since moonshining came out.

Logged on with my friend at one point, we weren't sure what we were going to do. When I spawn in, I spawn literally in the middle of a pack of wolves. Mind you, this is the forst pack of wolves i've seen since... since...... I don't quite remember.... Anyway we decide to do Trader stuff as it appears that there is actually animals out and about. Pick off ftwo of the wolves with my revolvers and get a poor pelt - figures. After that I skin them and pick up a squirrel and turkey along the short 2-3 minute ride to where our camp was pitched. 

"Wow!"  I think "There's actually animals today! How lucky am I?" 

You know how in GTAO sometimes the entire server empties but you? The opposite of that happened to me. Only thing I shot was another Cripps.  Rockstar please fix.

Yeah, but in my case it's because I changed my MTU settings on my PS4 to force me into solo sessions.  ;)

......btw, what was this thread about again?

^ This 💯! I think it’s because we all know the potential this game has and we want it to work like that so badly because it would be so much more fun. I refuse to give up on it but can’t help but to bitch about the lack of progress from R*, yes I’m a glutton for punishment. 😂

Honestly, Rockstar patting themselves on the back and the slap in the face in the disparity of Thank You rewards was the last straw

Day 1 beta player here... haven't played since Tuesday... can't even bother with logging in to do a daily,,, the thought is starting to make me feel nauseous because of what they have done... and have not even attempted to fix

when I start to see some positive vibes return to the boards then I may consider a return... but kinda hooked on GTA 5 again because of the cash influx

Anyone been able to claim?
