Rockstar's calling it 'paced deletion' so anyone who missed the first and second waves of character deletion has another chance. R* making the playing field as level as a f*cking tarmac.

Apparently, if you stay away from the city too long, your skills degrade over time. R* said it I can't be bothered to look it up though

I dont get it, if they r going to f*ck with everything like that, they might as well reset everyones sh*t so we ALL start from scratch, im getting nowhere fast because every time i rank up, next time i go on, i drop dramatically again

Yes it's true. When you first load the game up and hit x for online and it takes forever to load, it comes up with little online tips. One being " don't stay away from Los Santos too long, as your rank will degrade over time" something along those lines. :/. Edit: well my character got deleted anyway so... um ... Yeah Edit : skills ..

Lol really? That's f*cking stupid if that's true. If I want to have a garage out by sandy shores because I like dirt biking through the mountains I have to lose skills over time?

 

 

EDIT: I'm stupid never mind. It's just if you aren't playing the game, not if you're in blaine county lol.

You will not lose rank, only skills. It  is a tip that pops up while loading the online game.

Why does it Degrade if you're not in LS??, Stupid Decision by R*. My char is near Trevor, so he is losing skill??

 

EDIT: So I have to play GTA O Everyday?, this is the most STUPIDEST feature, you know what World of Warcraft does when you log out in a Inn? It gives you bonus exp...yes they reward you not punish you...R* should reward people for certain things, besides $1000 for being a "Good sport", you know with all the crap GTA O craps out they just keeping adding more turds. I Never thought it could get worst.

Skills are better, as long as it's not rank.

 

Skills are a lot easier to level up for me and don't affect too much. Now, how long it takes them to degrade is another problem. A bar a week? Per month?

Either show us a link to the article that says R* specifically said you lose rank/skill the longer you stay offline or I call BS and y'all are lying out of your asses.

Yes skills, not rank.

It says this in the hints that flash onscreen.
I have left it for many hours and not lost level or even skills, it must take alot longer, like if your off for a week you lose a skill point or two in each category.

Relax everyone. It is skills that degrade, and it is very slowly.

 

The tool-tip simply says that of you stay away from the game for a long time your skills will degrade, they won't drop to nothing.

 

I've never seen anything regarding losing Rank, and I call utter shenanigans on that, losing levels (Rank)? No chance.
