I lurk the Edit Banned thread and the number 1 issue

actually is probably poor English

but a close runner up is people who edit YMMV entries. Just be aware that your opinion is not necessarily always correct, even if the person arguing with you is also not correct. Edit Warring in YMMV has brought down many many tropers.

[up][up]Particuarly when those tropes are aimed at minority groups. I'm just going to be upfront that 'Scrappy' is disproportionaly thrown at women, poc, and gay characters a lot.

I mean, sometimes fairly, like if a series really fucks up on writing a trans character, but I've seen a lot of times where a character is just there because 'T He H DON'T EXPLAINZ TEH GAYZ! WHY DO GAYZ EXIST?! FFFFFFFFFFF-"

Not sourcing YMMV entries is probably this wiki's biggest problem. It is often impossible for the casual reader to distinguish between someone's personal opinion and one held by a large part of the fandom at first glance.

I mean, even just 'citing' someone could result in the same problem. I'm sure I can find a Vocal Minority of people for nearly any YMMV trope out there and, just from those talking, you'd think its a bigger issue than it is.

Point being, even citing things doesn't validate the scale of the... mileage here. Raising that point also starts a conversation about 'legitimacy' and that also sounds like the start of an Edit War.

I finally decided to pick the game back up. And, since I have to pay for Online I guess, I've gone back to Single Player.

Any new updates to hunting? I have a long list of animals I need to hunt down and a lot of them are small and frustrating to try and get a perfect pelt from let alone get to spawn.

(Oops, Didn't realize I was the last poster. I'm sorry.)

I've noticed that about "scrappy" as well. Rather like "feisty."

Bumping because RDR 2 has been making news a bit lately. And not in a good way.

The December Patch (though the video uses the latest patch released this week) downgraded the graphics of the game. Image looks a lot more flat now. Mostly its in stuff like skin and shadows or so I've noticed. Shadow Maps of models look hit too.

The theory is that the graphics were downgraded (specifically Ambient Occlusion) were removed because Online stability would take a hit if they were working, but removing them from only Online would result in people noticing more that its only active in Single Player. So it was removed entirely.

And now because caught wise and are making noise. Personally I think that they should have been upfront and left it in Single Player. I'm sure, yeah, some people will be upset, but its also pretty understandable that you couldn't get Online to run perfect without some downgrades.

EDIT: Can't get the embed tool to work so here's the link.

Wait does the downgrade affect the single-player or just the multi-player mode?

[up]x2

Its Single-player. They removed graphic features in Single Player which make the graphics look flatter and duller. The reason being either to make Online run smoother or to make PC look better by comparison. There are a lot of theories. Online seems the most likely since it came out around December.

I'm pretty sure its been done before to other games, just maybe not regularly. Nothing particuarly comes to mind though.
