then R* designed Online to be 100% completed in about 5 hours (and that is being very generous).
Hmm...so, with 500 missions to start with, you're saying that you can complete these ON AVERAGE of 36 seconds each?! You are a gaming legend. We should all bow to thee. Or you're just completely suck at math, statistics and general not being a f*cking tool.
Wow - f*cking angry much?
And if many of those 500 missions are level locked, then how the hell are any of us supposed to be able to gain enough RP to access them without repeating the f*ck out of the early available activities (iow - farming early missions)? Answer me that, f*cking tool.
Oh....so now a bunch of the missions are level locked. Oh, so, what, you agree that Online can be 100% completed in 5 hours? Why the f*ck are you arguing with me? The level unlock just makes it longer. Obviously, you don't have the bandwidth in your brain to understand where I was coming from with that post.
Here it is plain and simple: GTAO =/= 100% complete in 5 hours and anyone who says that is a f*cking tool.
Jesus tap-dancing Christ......
Of course you can't actually complete all 500 missions in 5 hours. But my original argument was against the statement that "the game is not meant to be played by repeating missions/activities over and over" - if you are not meant to repeat missions/activities (iow - farm the same early level missions, whether you do the same one repeatedly - Violent Duct - using the replay feature or you back out to the map and call and request it), then NO ONE would be able to get past level 10 or so (because there is only a finite amount of RP to be gained without repeating any missions), and therefore no one would be able to actually access the higher level-locked missions, so then of course we would all be able to complete the small % of unlockable content in about 5 hours.
My argument was mocking those who claim farming in a game like this is "not how it is meant to be played". You HAVE to repeat missions (which is all farming is) to get enough RP to even access the bulk of the game's features!
I've done around 12 missions, half a dozen races, some deathmatches and not farmed anything and I'm level 17. I don't get your point.
yer i get his point, if we were only to do the available missions only once and not 'repeat/farm' them, then we would complete all available content within 5 hours (ish). He is right we do have to constantly farm the same mission, weather we want to or not, if this was not intended then mission would only be playable once, period! I dont know why there arent more missions, maybe they have the intentions of adding more content afterwards, dunno!
We will all farm missions in this game it is inevitable, most of us will play the mission, maybe solo, play with randoms, then maybe play a 3rd time with friends. So i've already played the mission 3 times but this is not classed as farming. i havnt set out to enter lobbies or create glitches that allow me to gain more xp/rp that is intended, all ive done is played the game. This mission isnt locked after first completing it so therefor this mission and all other are clearly intended to be replayed. However the amount of RP/XP that is gained from the missions is up to rockstar, in this case someone at RS has overpriced the VD mission that is all, its now been corrected, lets move on.
You however seem to doing what was intended for you to do, just do some missions, few races, few tdm so you will just have the sheer enjoyment of the game without the grinding and will level up with no problem.
Robbing a bank over and over again even if u have robbed it in the past, is this not farming? Some people chose to exploit a game function that was clearly a mistake, 'They took there chances, so what, big deal, dont affect the rest of us.' We have Matchmaking servers these days
