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.
