in GTA IV, GTA races was all i've done. I liked how we started off with no weapons to pick up weapons; to shoot other racers in a life and death situational race. almost like a race/ deathmatch to me.

now that we're in the future, GTAO's GTA races are far more than disappointing.

Rockets? where'd that come from?

Rockets (or PowerUps) should be a choice of the host, along with the ability to start off with weapons.

as a matter of fact, for the greater good, gta online's gta races should be identical to gta iv's gta races.

If the new gta races are suppose to be a 'step up' from gta iv, then i'd say its not much of a step up at all.

lets discuss this, then i'll email [email protected] about this horrible idea of rockets.

i'm just sick of people joining my race, then leaving once they find out its a GTA Race...

The only reason I dont play races is because everyone tries to do the PIT maneuver on you, I only race with bikes. Ill only do car races with my friends.

Because if i want to play mario cart then i will buy mario cart

 

Catch up sucks

 

Modded cars suck

 

Slipstream sucks

 

The players who go out of their way to crash into you suck (like turning round wrong way)

 

General attitudes suck

 

There's probably more but in general unless you are racing against your friends, it sucks

 

Rant over and apologies, no offence meant

Catchup is horrible. Anyone who races with that option on should be shot.

Racing with custom vehicles is fine. What is the point on spending money on different mods if you can't use them in races. There is an option to turn it off if you prefer a 'stock' class race.

Slipstream is overpowered, but only a real issue when paired with catchup. Slipstream by itself isn't game breaking.

Gta races are ridiculous. I want to race. Not dodge missles. That's retarded.

GTA Races where fun in GTA 4.

 

But GTA V has gone too wacky.

 

 

It basically comes down to who can speed boost, grab the 1st rocket and shoot it backwards.

 

 

I don't mind the weapons like in GTA 4, but these Mario Kart Rockets and Speed Boosts turn me right off.

Maybe the modded car point wasnt explained correctly (its the vodka talking lol)

 

I guess what i meant was if you are a lower lvl and all you can find is races with the modded car option then you have no real chance of getting a decent place let alone coming 1st

 

Slipstream is almost like catch up imo, its way way over powered

Slipstream is the devils creation

I can win 90% of the races by slipstreaming behind first place, it's really hard not to overtake him, you have to really struggle not to overtake, then at the last 15 seconds slipstream past him and viola! first place!

Seriously doubt that.. Its not that simple..  Allls the 1st place guy has to do is prevent a the pass.  Which is fairly easy.  Then slip stream either gives you a speed boost or wipe themselves out. 

 

Besides this is GTA Races we are talking about.  Slip streamimg in GTA races only means you're just asking to get rocket in your face.

All they should have done is made your vehicle respawn in GTA Race, so you don't end up on faggios unwilling to race anymore (if it has a lot of laps)

I hate races.

I have gotten the dnf so many times for bs reasons, and got zero rp and zero cash as a result.

Once it happened when I was literally 20ft from the finish.

Races are a waste of time unless you do two player races and let each other win

Because people do nothing but try to wreck you instead of actually racing.

In "GTA race" the rockets are too much. If they did with out them, I would do more GTA races. For now, working on dealing with crappy racers in the standard race mode.

This^ AND leaning on a motorcycle has been ruined.

 

Wheelies suck and rider animation on a bike sucks.

 

Bring back Gta IV bike physics where I could lean and throttle while doing wheelies not to mention tucking actually did something...

Because slip-streaming is retarded.. and I think it's really cheap to use weapons in a race.

I actually enjoy the GTA Races. I wish we could actually choose to play them like GTA IV, instead of having to play whatever the host wants. I know I could host but no one ever joins :(
