Money in the Bank
 
Given some of the recent technical issues during these first days of GTA Online, and now that things are starting to look much smoother (touch wood!), we are planning to provide a special stimulus package for all who have played or will play Grand Theft Auto Online this month. We will be dropping a cool half a million GTA$ in the GTA Online bank accounts of all players this month, starting as early as next week. 
 
‘Don’t Spend It All in One Place!’
 
In order to keep the current worldwide in-game economy balanced, we will be providing this GTA$ to players via two deposits of $250,000. We will announce specific dates as soon as possible, but are currently hoping to be able to make the first deposit by the end of next week (after we’ve confirmed that issues causing game progress loss have been fixed) with the second installment to happen by the end of the month. For players who experienced cloud server errors, connection issues, and lost game progress and characters in these first days of GTA Online, we hope this GTA$ helps to facilitate a fresh start or makes your continued life in Los Santos and Blaine County extra sweet.
 
Below are a few more details on how it will work. Stay tuned for tips on how to make the most of GTA$ cash, info on ways and places to earn more cash fast, as well as updates on all the new GTA Online content additions we’re working on for this fall and beyond.
  • You must play or have played Grand Theft Auto Online at any time during the month of October 2013 in order to qualify for the GTA$500,000 deposit in your in-game bank account.
  • Players will first have to install a forthcoming GTAV title update which we expect to happen next week. That title update (1.04) is expected to fix the remaining instances of issues that have caused vehicle purchase loss and will also enable the functionality through which we’ll be providing this GTA$ stimulus cash to players.
  • We will announce at the Rockstar Newswire when each deposit is made.
  • Each of the two GTA$250,000 deposits will be made by Rockstar and should automatically appear in the in-game GTA Online bank accounts of eligible players. Beyond downloading the forthcoming title update mentioned above, there should not be any additional special action required by eligible players to redeem.

So everyone who has been playing will get 500k this month! What will you guys be spending this on? A house, a super car?

Personally I'll probably go with the car :).

Unfair ? when i read people complaining about farmers, it's like you are talking about glitchers / hackers / criminals ....

 

That's a nice move from R* specially for these who lost characters

That's fair enough, it doesn't quite cover my losses but it's a good gesture.

500k isn't anywhere close to what a grinder has. 500k is like 20 mins of Rooftop Rumble and people do this for HOURS

Love the idea!

 

In a way, it's really the same as wiping all characters; It creates a level playing field for all players.

It'd be nice to get a treat considering I've been playing the game properly and not farming.
Cool stuff Rockstar, I'll be able to get a house and a garage now :)

For me, I'm really only getting a $100k deposit because R* still owed me $400k from my lost cash card balance.  But since I had pretty much written it off, and because my character did not end up getting deleted, I'm cool with an extra $100k.  I'll use it right away on some vehicle mods.

 

As for the moaning, bitching haters?

Nice. I've got my apartment and my favorite sports car so maybe a super car or a plane.

I will admit i did replay the 25k mission several times with a group the other day but only to recover progress from 2 lost characters (lvl 13 & lvl 14)

This is a nice gesture from R*, i'll be getting my JB 700 straight away then.

And who cares about farmers anyway, if they wanna go through the hours of boredom, that's up to them, they die just as easy as lower lvls from my experience.

I've earned just about $2m

 

Only half of that was from what everybody around here is calling farming/grinding.

 

I've had a f*cking blast playing this game.  Getting rich is just a bonus.

It looks like the farmers will be disappointed that players will be able to defend themselves.

Yeah you can get a fortune exploiting the glitches.

With the really obnoxious glitch exploiting you level up really fast too.

The most major and most exploited glitch in the game is the glitch where you destroy objects to win missions instantly.

Everything else is small potatoes.
