Why does it seem like unless you're with friends you basically have to play alone. It seems like no on automatically joins your games, you'd think they'd join lobbies if 2 players wanted to play the same race or mission.

The bad sport lobby apparently has more players (so people have said) and it's easier to find players to help on jobs.

 

Also, check to see if your NAT is open. this plays a HUGE factor, as mine is moderate and I def can never find anyone to join my games. I have to play with friends from my friends list when doing missions.

I have this same problem sometimes. NAt is Open. I've found if you do quick job that it always works but you cant choose which mission or race to do.

Yeah, I was lucky to get 3 people, other than myself in a race today. I would like to be able to do races and DMs with bots. Just for those day when you have no friends online, and nobody wants to join.

bad sports is always packed, people do missions because it reduces their jail time if they complete many.

Really? Bad sports have incentive to do missions yet players who aren't bad sports do not. gg R*

Yeah I'm still not sure how people actually get into races. I always say join, then sit as a host alone in a race until I get bored enough to either race myself or just give up.

The problem is Criminal Records and Down The Drain. Try joining a race. You're 95% likely to end up with bums repeating those tracks for easy RP and money.

I think Rockstar just sucks balls at matchmaking. They have millions of players and give them all their own private lobby.

I join random games all the time in public lobbies. I picked up a crew member by joining their game. I understand what you mean though. Not many people join the mission when you want them to. Only when you don't. Like when some is hosting a race and you are waiting for friends and they left it on Open for matchmaking. Lol.

I don't have too much of a problem finding people to join missions. But game modes such as Death Match and Parachuting, no one wants to join that sh*t. You have to play with the homies if you want a decent game.

Forever alone! lol

 

I've never had problems finding people to play with.  Sometimes people don't join missions right away, but they come eventually.

Also since then, I see lots of "Joining---> Joined ---> Left" unless it's one of the highest paying missions.

I don't have this very often, but god is it frustrating when it does happen.

Pretty sure you can kick them from the job, haven't tried it myself.

This is the f*cking reason. It's not even worth it anymore to do the missions.

People don't do missions as much it would seem since R*'s war on the game began. Nerfing payouts, tacitly allowing people to cheat and glitch as much as they like, 3 weeks and counting of data loss is all adding up to a lower population that plays. Those people that are still playing do same thing over and over because it's so much better reward than anything else.

 

R* will nerf those too. Maybe after that, they can start working on glitches, data loss and this hell-spawn called The Cloud.

 

My guess is it will continue except for a short lived resurgence when they release some content. Possibly they will tweak matchmaking with some patch.

Yeah I still do them occasionally to - and they're fun - but for anyone trying to generate money, they're less likely to hit Random Mission now than they were before 1.04 :(

I hope the solution is to 'undo' their changes rather than nerfing everything else though.
