I am just encouraged banning is coming, the pic looks legit. I submitted a player complaint for system tampering, haven't gotten a response...I know its mean but I cannot wait for the Banned for what? topics that will pepper this forum very soon. It will justify why I have played the game fair the entire time and not given into easy money glitches.
Honestly, I'm looking forward to bans myself. I just hope I'm not lumped into them is all, lol. From the evidence I've seen R* will be banning people, the question is what is going to qualify you. There's the obvious, like mods, or hacks, or duplication glitches that net tens of millions. And there's also the 'Grey' area, with smaller glitches and exploits that may or may not be 'illegal', and aren't game-breaking.
I highly doubt that farming will be put into that group, I suspect system tampering and the bike clitch will be the primary sources of the ban, but to be honest, I know nothing about how this will be implemented. Normally, ban issues are pretty black and white or were so over used that they effected the percieved fairness of the game, kind of a joke as it is covered in this forum extensively, how do you define morality in a game where you can kill anything and everything for any reason. The fact remains, as ridiculous as it is, there is not doubt in my mind bans are coming. If there was before today, the doubt was killed by the OP's picture or the R* response. Alot of the hostility on this thread is the first stages of dealing with a tragedy, denial. R* has a plan to implement cash cards into the game. In order for that to be effective or worth it, glitching will have to be discouraged, in order for it to be discouraged effectively people will have to be banned. I also suspect bans are coming sooner than later. As for the original reason for the post, I do think the OP could have effectively screwed himself. Complaining will likely get the object of that complaint on a watch list, but not banned outright. But once again, speculation. I hope that the bans cover people who knew better and excludes any gray areas you could be referring to. There is always a way out of bans as well, new box, new GT. Good luck to everyone, I suggest you play fair, if its too late, enjoy it while it lasts. Or I could be talking out of my a$$. Bans or not, I love this game and am not going to stop playing if no bans come. Money is nothing in this game to skill. Cheaters are not breaking the game and they never will. In fact they are just elevating mine. So, I guess, thanks.
