So I just spoke to this guy that I know again that is some sort of computer technician or something. I asked him if he knows anything about the R* clouds and servers and why my internet is working for some things but not others and he said that if the servers go out then I probably can't play the game. I don't really understand all this technical stuff but it seems like this is something that should have been fixed by now.
Part of me thinks that they are doing this on purpose so they can take the characters that we created and use them for other things, like other games and stuff.
i hope that people find this information helpful!
