Since we have the time...

SDS

This is a question for a programmer/person smarter than me.

In an online sports game, it's you vs one opponent in a fixed area (arena/stadium). Two different connections.

The Show, NBA2k, and Madden are the Big 3.
One common ingredient in all is horrible online play.

Yet I can play GTA5 online and Red Dead online and there is nary a hiccup.
Those games have up to 30 people in one lobby, over a sprawling map, all doing different things, and not even a stutter.
And hows about when you play in a "vs competition" in Red Dead, like a fishing contest vs 20 other players?
That's 20 different and varying connections, and never so much as a cough.

So my question is, what the dilly-o?

I haven't played RDR2 in months. I stopped to play this...
Follow up... Why did I stop playing RDR2 to play this?

SDS

Rdr2 online has had it's up and downs. Exp at launch.

OMG can this community cry any more

The amount of children in here crying because they can play their little game.

Dude it's an outage it happens and beside the first couple weeks of this game the server issue have be ver few and very far between

I still play Red Dead every day but just to keep my daily streak going plus they have monthly outlaw passes. It would probably be more fun if my friends were still playing but they jumped ship a long time ago for CoD of all things.

Valid question IMO. The gameplay can lag when the servers are functioning. What I wonder is do online shooters drop the frame rate for everyone if one connection is off? I am curious about how it is handled as an IT guy.

PvP vs Dedicated servers

So, my friend, are you happy with the overall online experience of The Show in relation to other, far more complex online games?
And I dont think anyone is crying- more frustration about a game that promises so much and often drops the ball.

You may have misread my OP.
It was concerning the differences between sports games online stability and that of RPG type games.

I log into RDR2 every day. Started on PS4 built my account up to lvl 295, then switched to PC and I am at lvl 312. Plenty of experience. That game has way more issues than MLB TS online. They just are not going to be noticed or as bothersome as in a game that focuses on such a small area of gameplay at a time. Hitting a 68-102mph pitch thrown by one person to someone on the other end of the connection trying to hit it will never be perfect. It is probably one of the most challenging online things to do correctly.

I have rdr2 but I beat the story before online was a thing. Is it worth re downloading and jumping online at level 1? What is there to do?

A lot if you are just starting. But the main complaint from people playing a while is there isnt enough to do now. I mainly just hop on to keep my daily streak going, but I have over 1200 gold bars and nothing to spend them on because they add very slowly to the game lol. Story was definitely better than online.

Non productive clearly you haven't looked at my history on this forum.

This post is non productive because of the 15 other "the servers are down post" we already have. Also this post doesn't exist if the server don't go down so really it's just a fancy way to say the servers are down.

Because calling people crying children when they have valid questions/complaints definitely isn’t trying to look tough.

As I said, get off your knees, wipe your mouth, and try not to let the shame of it all keep you up at night.

You sure like using that word a lot, huh? Probably because it’s what you were doing after you let SDS bend you over and spread you wide.

Oh dang, the game is really down. Usually when I read this stuff it is isolated to just a few people or it is back working by the time I try to get on, but this time IT IS REAL.

Once upon a time there was a Canadian junior high child that pretended to make money. At first everyone thought he was funny.

Then he made this post, trying to roast, and we all realized he's really just a bunny.
