RDO is not a flop, it's a neglected community that Rockstar quickly abandoned after they realized that they couldn't double up on selling virtual currency on it like they do in the GTA Online. RDO had a very passionate, up and coming community that slowly, but painfully tapered off after said neglect rolled into housing a pretty unplayable game with the limited to missing animal spawns, the glitched camp system coupled with the lack of activities that harkened back to how dead GTO was back when they promised heists and ain't had shyt other than party games and that hoard mode for you to shoot it out with. The collector role and the daily challenges streak that gave you a higher gold earning percentage ensured that any dilligent player of this online experience could generate enough money to not EVER have to buy Gold bars to pay for ANYTHING within the game, unlike the experience you are faced with in a GTO setting where new players are basically forced to consider doling out actual cash for Shark cards to even begin to experience a 1/10th of the overinflated bullshyt that is offered within it's universe. It's apparent now that Rockstar NEVER wanted to create the RDO Universe me and alot of folks who bought this title day 1 and was salivating for with an Online Cowboy experience. To this day you've no train robberies, bank robberies, Cattle/Horse rustling, user gang clans, frontier property experiences, pan handling, heck, CATHOUSE OWNERSHIP of ANY, fukkING, SORT in such an expansive and capable game that would accept and utilize all these facets of a romanticized Western Outlaw experience that would have made this game just as good if not BETTER than the current wacky offering than what could be found in an RDO experience. That's why they focus so hard on GTO online, breh. Digital currency. I guarantee you, if no one was buying them shark cards to the clip that they do now, GTA 5 would not be a thing past a casual gaming experience a select few tap into. That's why they went so ham on nerfing what you could earn through the collector role and they've finally fukked up the Daily challengers streak earning system where your streak resets after 28 days, thus limiting your earning power.....all to make you consider buying gold bars. Motherfukk Rockstar/Taketwo and everyone who had a hand in that shyt. RDO should have been treated with way more respect than it got by them tone dead b*stards who basically ignored it and still do to this day. I mean, who the fukk wants to play as a leaf picking pacifist in a game where you shoot, hunt and LIVE as a fukking homicidal criminal?
