there is no doubt that there are some digital adjustments/sliders in this game, whatever you want to call it. we all have had games that our players just play different from the game before. its adjustments to keep players playing, you wouldn't want to play if you got your ass wooped every game, so they level the playing field to keep players playing. it's not new and it's no big deal IMO. it effects us all at some point good or bad.
And yet, 99% of other games with online components don't do this and people still play. I was addicted to BF1 yet at my age I'm handicapped by slow reflexes. I kept my expectations realistic, learned the maps so I could compensate with knowledge, and played buku hours.
Same with RDRII.
To the best of my knowledge only EA is guilty of these shenanigans. Every other game I play online is truly skill based, not AI assisted, or glitched.
what I been saying, the game is not skill based. Most losses I encounter always feels more AI assisted than the other guy being better. Its an amazing how good a game is when AI is not doing alot of assisting, which it does happen sometimes.
