I'm pretty sure Rockstars Microtransactions are some of the most offensive out there. Anyone who plays those games could tell you that. GTA5 was notorious for it but no one outside of the people who played the game really cared. So of course they brought it to Rdr2, both games are nearly unplayable online without spending any money. Not to mention that Rdr2 is basically a Beta they crammed Microtransactions in and it baffles me that no one talks about it.
Fair point. And I wholeheartedly agree that they are scummy. However, online content is usually a bonus. Their games are designed to be single player experiences, hence where most of the money in development goes. They feel since they gave you one game(base) for a set price that you need to pay for another(online). And because they deliver a full game and then be scummy is why they're golden boys.

Wat. Then why even ruin your perfect game with an online mode in the first place?

Making a good single player shouldn't excuse you making a barely functional Multiplayer that cheats and Robs your players.

It's the plague that came with online compatibility. To the average modern gamer, if it doesn't have online multiplayer... it's a shit game. This causes issues when online play is forced on a singleplayer game to try and please the toxic shithead that voice gaming culture atm. Though, it's not just a problem for offline primary games. League's community (as well as many other pvp games) is seen as a terrible group of arrogant shitchilds because the toxic community... sadly... is the loudest one.

I can verify this has someone who played League for 5 years.

So... when's the next RP gonna happen?
Yeah. Sorry about that. I'm trying to make sure I'm prepared as it's my first time Gming. I took a bit of a hit as I lost my notes... Blech. But I'll put up the Introductory Post sometime this week and try to get bios and other information up by the end of Next week.

Don't rush yourself. Relax. Take your time. And don't forget your towel.
