  • American Gods really was tremendous, though it really strayed ... monumentally ... from the book. And at the pace they're going right now, there's at least 3 more seasons before they'd get to the end of the basic plot of the book. It's a 20 chapte…
  • Lordy, do I wish weeks were consistently strong enough that this week could be merely average.
  • yeah for now, I added a new copy to my wishlist in Amazon and will monitor there and in ebay. Not interested in the country packs, already have the "metal" pack export and I own so many of the classic rock songs individually, this track pack 2 is …
  • You can get a new copy easily, but it won't be super-cheap. Or you can be patient, with enough searching it's not at all impossible to find a new copy that's super-cheap. Or you can get easily order a used copy, for very little money, and hope to ge…
  • I had no idea myself. I can still buy track packs (I assume they have to be new? or does it?) and export them into Rock Band 4? Probably after installing to RB2/RB3 first? If they're new, you can be sure they're unredeemed. If they're 'used', t…
  • I must be the only one on the planet who still would prefer True Colors to GJWTHF. You are not. My pecking order of Cyndi Lauper songs goes True Colors -> Time After Time -> Girls Just Wanna Have Fun. I mean, all three are must owns, but o…
  • Some debut album has it's 30th anniversary next month so I wouldn't be shocked to see songs from that artist between now to the end of July. It's an understandable mistake, but Echo and the Bunnymen's eponymous July 1987 album isn't actually their…
  • If your system doesn't connect to Rock Central immediately at launch, your game will not get the shirts for that session. So if you see "recent activity is unavailable" in that top right panel when the main menu comes up - no shirts for you. If yo…
  • Um, you can hit the cymbals on nonpro, can't you? If the blue cymbal feels more natural to you than blue pad, you can hit the blue cymbal when the drum cue comes up blue.
  • If a crew had a member quit at the last second and the crew lost all the XP and spotlight scores, the crew would be screwed for that one week only. If the crew member that quit my crew in the final hours of the final week of Season 0 had his spot…
  • We've since found out: The game tries to connect to Rock Central servers immediately upon game launch. If it successfully connects then, the initial 'handshake' leads to unlocking the server-authenticated entitled Rivals apparel for you for the res…
  • My first employer laid me off at 9 years 10 months. Was so close to that ten year pin. Now 8 years 10 months at the place I worked next after that.
  • They're server checks when you turn the game on, we're seeing why some people are wobbly on that check. Whoa, is it every time the game launches? If I define one of my band members to be wearing one of these shirts, but then sometime I launch gam…
  • EDIT: Another point, the 10th anniversary of Rock Band is both a time of celebration and a bad omen. The bad omen is that relicensing starts again with the early RB1 DLC as 5 years since the last relicensing phase is approaching. Depending on how …
  • I used to cry myself to sleep nightly over being unable to access the Holy Bowler hat in RB3 because i was not a good enough keyboard player to pass the 'advanced scaled' lesson. Snif. You just can't make the all-droog crew without it.
  • If things work properly, it's automagically added to your 'Tops' in your rock shop the first time you connect to rock central servers after season 0 completion. A lot of people have had the shirts missing - some got them eventually and some are st…
  • Looking at the results screen this morning they may have disabled demotion anyway. All I see is a blue and green bar with no red zone. Also, I, like several redditors, was not awarded any of the shirts. Balls. I will forever believe that it w…
  • You can get a spreadsheet to do the math, but you still need to do the data entry. https://www.reddit.com/r/Rockband/comments/5pzbyv/instrument_skill_formula_calculator_spreadsheet/ (not yet amended to include proper hard-level calculations, but s…
  • @pksage on reddit is saying that a fresh game launch is necessary; it only checks the entitlement at first connect to rock central. Others are suggesting that alone doesn't do it for them.
  • Yeah, figuring out why a 5S Warmup awarded 119 while a 5S Impossible awarded 131 was the hard part of the formula to extrapolate (when GS Warmup and GS Impossible award the same, 143).
  • No 'insider information', all black-box view by studying skill impacts of various performances on an account that, pre-study, had zero recorded scores. With at least one GS at every tier (and no sub-GSes that I didn't eventually bump up to GSes) I …
  • Never heard it was dropped (and if it was, if it was handled the same on both MS and Sony platforms), but I'm not the most in-the-loop on these things.
  • @Meat-Popsicle Correct me if I'm wrong, but it's my understanding that you will "max" out if you only play songs at "X" difficulty. Let's say for example: You never play a devil-tiered song, then hypothetically speaking you could go no higher t…
  • And every season runs 8 weeks now. Everyone's back to Bronze after Week 8. But until then, every week your only options are "Promoted" or "Not promoted", you can't go backwards til the reset and start of a new season.
  • Last gen, patches after the first actually had a substantial first party fee, which dramatically reduced the likelihood of a small shop issuing minor fixes and luxury upgrades, so a patch wouldn't actually be set in motion until there was a critical…
  • I feel sorry for those of you who are ruled by this stat and therefore unable to just play whatever songs you feel like playing for fear your precious rating might drop. I don't need your pity. I have been playing songs I feel like playing, and t…
  • As my guitar score has taken about a month for every 2-3 point improvement, 8 points looks like a multi-month effort to undo. When you've already played most songs to the best of your ability it becomes really hard to find ones you're actually able…
  • Mine didn't spawn right away but eventually showed (they weren't there at 8:00, but were at 9:00). The shop menu doesn't detect them as 'new' so don't wait for that as a signal, but eventually they did appear among my tops.
  • My skill on bass fell this week while I was working to rack up XP for my crew. Yeah, my bass skill has taken a hard hit in the past few months because of crew play. I've been very deliberately working at my guitar score, and have worked it up to …
  • The app also has a horrible tendency to show last week's final results for the first 10-15 minutes after midnight. Anyone who looked at their app at 12:10AM on June 14 got to see the results of the week that ended at the end of June 6. Only some t…
