I am hearing that glitchers are ruining the ingame economy because they have large amounts of money......so I want to know what is the difference between somebody that glitches 50 mil and somebody that spends $1,000 of real life money for $50mil of ingame money?
Either way both players have 50 mil, and 50 mil is 50 mil....so how is the glitcher ruining the ingame economy while the cash card dude is not?
For some both are outrageous.
but think about this way if I give you a free way to get 50 million or told you pony up 60 dollars, would you? A very large percentage of players who glitched would have never have bought 50 million. so the total percentage of 50 million players would not be the same otherwise.
In real life, at a bar and the whiskey was free there would be no one left. You add a price and it becomes rationed for those who were not first in the door.
the glitching effectively was effectively the equivalent of someone in your local area printing money in their basement and then going to the local stores buying anything want. In real life it either causes shortages, or higher prices to ration the goods/services, so suddenly if you worked for a normal income you are either outbid by someone with funny money who can bid the price higher, or shortages of goods like milk and food become scare.
basically think of how the rich getting bailed out in 2008, and how prices of things you need/want are only affordable to the top 1% who have the incomes the match prices today. If we allowed deflation to occur prices for everything would have collapsed, instead prices for everything have exploded without matching incomes but save for the top1%
You are in the top1% of this game if you printed I mean ""glitched"" money, so people gonna hate, but it has to more with Rockstar handling of prices not matching wages, the supply of goods and services in this game, and demand for it.
I fall in the category of who cares whether people earned or printed their money because there is no way to sell or buy to another player, and the supply of goods/services you can demand are pointless other then for vanity. Since I cant sell you what I bought or buy what you bought there is no value for said goods or services.
