I've been noticing extremely low player counts in game lobbies since 1.05 went live.  upon first joining they are full, then after about 45 min every is shown to quit in rapid succession leaving only 4-5 players.  

 

Could it have something to do with duped/glitched cars from single player and/or police vehicles ect?

 

I only ask this because I have not used the LSC glitch or any such thing, I do however have a duped space docker in my garage from way back when.

 

Leaves me curious, for those experiencing low player lobbyies, do you have any duped/glitched cars in your garage?

 

be honest and lets get to the bottom of this

Not the source of the problem, haven't glitched or duped at all and still coming across this - though it is no less prevalent than it was a few days ago.

It only lasted for a couple of days, but it's back to normal now.

 

There was definitely a reason for it - probably do with R* fixing technical issues of some kind, or preparation for BB DLC

I experience low player count in my lobbies... because I exclusively enter "invite only" to get away from all you A-HOLES! (you know who you are). 

 

SERVER BROWSERS NEEDED.. Lobbies are likely emptier because of other games, this game has been played out because R* can't see past their own nose and many people either played the game like crazy and have now done everything (and are poor) or gitched all kinds of money and have done everything (and their too rich).

People come and go.
Races, missions, etc.
You've stumbled across nothing of note.

Well from what I've read on these forums..

Everyone quit GTA Online to play COD. Which is why the lobbies where dead for a few days.

 

But, now all the lobbies are packed again..  So that must mean everyone quit COD...lol

I'm pretty sure it's just the extra capacity R* provided at peak demand hasn't been optimised for the current playerbase.

 

They are probably working on it but don't want to risk lack of product (servers) as they once did.  Especiallly at weekends, and with holidays coming up.

At some point over the past 48 hours the matchmaking was fixed...the end. I went from getting 3-4 person lobbies even after multiple switches to getting full ones every try in the past couple of days.

Yep, seems to be fixed now, not only getting full lobbies but it actually let's me switch between more than two different free roam rooms! :O

Though I did leave all of my crews a few days ago to see if it helped with bieng stuck in the same 3-4 person lobbies, big mistake.
