Now, before any wise-ass comes here to say "Don't b*tch about that, Rockstar said it'd be rocky.": I am not b*tching... I am just saying. This message is not in a tone of rage or anyway insulting towards R* or the current Online users, thus it is not complaining. Then what is it? A suggestion/constructive criticism. 

 

I have seen some random replies to threads lately, anything from "I wonder if my pony can fly!", "Online works perfectly!" etc. have at least someone reply "Stop bitching about Online." or something like that. Although funny to observe, it's somewhat weird. Or perhaps weird is not the word for it... more like it smells like slight trolling.

 

Anyway let's get to the main point. I think everyone should get some amount of in-game money. If your level was higher, it'd scale down (you would get less money than those who are below your level) and if it was lower, you'd get more money. This way, no one would be left without something and everyone profits. Higher levels less, yes, but that is because they've had more time to do things and get more $$$ of their own.

 

Whether the current people who moan now, start to moan like "But this other dude has a higher level!! Do a rollback!"... those kind of people have always existed since the creation of Multiplayer games and will always exist until someone creates a super system to make everyone to be happy.

They are a business - no, they shouldn't give away something free.

 

Wait a week or so and it will be fine.

I can play just fine, I felt like the people who still moan needed someone to nicely post about whether it is possible.

We were already given Online free which is almost on the scale of an MMO when it comes to content.

 

Quitcha bitchin' entitled sir.

 

Btw there is no such thing called "slight trolling", it's called sarcasm. Trolling is trolling hurrdurr.

Yes! They should give you 10xs what you paid for online. 

 

10

x0       or    10 x 0 = 0

 0

Shouldn't the launch have been pushed back by a week then? Instead of this sh*t.

 

I don't know. I don't feel they should give something free, but on the other hand, it'd go a long way towards repairing the damage to their reputation if they did. More than anything, they  need to give answers.

This happens to almost every major online game of this size, plus they didn't do any stress testing with an open beta. They tried anticipating the launch by buying more servers and in practice it doesn't always work. They are still fairly new to the online infrastructure of this magnitude they tried making a game that has close to the same amount of content as a modern MMO. They're still a business after all, and they have done a damn fine job at it from my experience on both 360/PS3 of both solo content and now Online.

A free cops and crooks game mode would not be entitled and would be something that a lot of people would want.

maybe some discounts at amunation but I wouldn't expect anything huge from them. If they just fix all these long loads and connection problems I will be happy.

Question is... what is FREE?

Yesterday, there was a debate about what is free...which kept me entertained during a slow day at work.

Would I like something because I can't get on? Of course I would! Money isn't the biggest thing for me due to level unlocks, my issue is that my friends are now way ahead of me and so I will pretty much be unable to enjoy the game with them - a way of being able to catch them up quicker, I.e an XP boost up (say 200% xp) up to level 15 or something for a week would be much more useful.

 

Should I get something because I can't get on? Absolutely not! I am entitled to nothing! Better information from R* would go a long way, as well as issues being fixed but giving me money? No. Of course I am frustrated that I can't get on but issues are expected, I don't doubt R* are working on them - can't really ask any more than that!

I know. As I said, I don't think they should feel like it's something they must do, but it's something they could do.

They could have pushed it back another week but they still wouldn't have foreseen what issues might occur - like the PS Network servers concurrent user limits (as reported on R* support page today.)

 

Obviously it's an insanely massive project and to release it live is going to bring up all sorts of issues that you just can't predict.

 

I bet R* are also gutted at how it has transpired.

Triple RP and cash for a time. That may backfire though. The servers would probably get blasted again. Comp'd Surfing or Poker DLC would be most excellent though. :)

To be fair, WinterEdit did just suggest free in-game money (not a physical reward) and he did post nicely! I doubt Rockstar would organise this - it could cause more complications - and complaints!
