Why are people so in love with slipstream? I see complaints about Catch Up, but slipstream has far greater consequences on the outcome of "races" in this game.
Racing in GTA5 is more of a struggle to hold second place than it is a shoot for the finish line. I'm not looking for a racing sim, but I don't want to put myself into the mind set of "lose to win" before every race, either. Once two people start riding each other, you can literally slipstream yourself and the other guy to the finish line with no chance of anyone catching up. I've been fortunate enough to be pair with like minded individuals in the same lobby, the kind who can differ between someone trying to kill them, and someone trying to jointly slipstream to a win.
With all of that being said, I merely assume people have taken so kindly to slipstream because after searching and searching, I have yet to find anyone truly upset with this mechanic.
