I’ve never been on the ban/reset bandwagon. I don’t think it will happen, or that it should…not for glitching.

 

That being said, looking into the strength issue a friend came upon this:

 

http://support.rocks...6-lost-forever-

 

You’ll notice they didn’t actually address the reset. They just spoke around it saying they made adjustments. But read between the lines and this is what I see:

 

“People abused the system and built up strength by punching cars, so we reset EVERYONE’S strength bar.”

 

I see this is a coward move by R*. I think they know they can’t ban/reset money glitchers, so they went after something seemingly trivial just to piss people off.

 

I can see an argument being made that this is a sign of things to come. Maybe, but I doubt it.

 

As I had no idea that you could boost strength punching cars, I’d never done it, and had built strength the normal way. So, in a dick move R* resets me and everyone else.

 

What the actual f*ck?

They probably did it to force people to play sports and what not.

 

The f*cked up thing is my roomate spent days punching people down at the docks to level up his strength because he didnt know about the car punching. Needless to say he's pissed

Those fake muscles give you better resilience when falling. Which is not that bad when you need to drop from someplace high in a hurry. Some say it goes towards HP count too (personally I am not 100% sure, so anyone that knows for sure can correct me, please).

Yeah, no stupid....it's more of a "read between the lines" type thing....I don't give a flying f*ck...I'm already back up to full having punched morons like you on the streets...

 

But hey....I know too well that no matter what someone posts there's always going to be paint huffers who are out to troll :D

 

Enjoy yourself.

It's really no big deal. Played 5 games over the last couple of evenings and already gone up by a bar.

Well I'm glad I only punched cars so I didn't have to cry about this. At first I was punching people till someone told me about the car ordeal. But damn, this is another f*cking stat I have to get up. Whats next? Stealth? I mean walking around in stealth mode with a rubber band on your controller was just as much of a trick as punching a car.

Here`s the funny thing: I walked around, but not with a rubber band. Not my problem it took so little time to max it...

I dont think we lost the strength its just an error in the stat. I definitely dont think R* did it intentionally...would it make sense to reset strength out of ALL things?! Someone made a coding error, possibly, added or deleted a character by mistake.

Moron version:

 

R* butthurt about glitches galore...reset a stat to punish EVERYONE...even those that didn't abuse the system and punch cars....because they can't reset glitchers.

 

SOMEHOW that translates to:

 

jdice boo hoo baby with strength stat reset...boo hoo never play boo hoo game again....wahhh....

Well, I'm not going to get it back up, if it's going to reset.

 

I think there is a glitch with the underwater breathing method...and with that, there is absolutely no way to glitch that...You have to sit there for about 45 minutes...diving and coming up...and yet...I don't breath any longer than someone who has a low stat.

Mines reset but I cannot get it to go up by doing ANYTHING. And I still take bullets as well as before and still whoop peds asses in fist fights. Was maxed before patch too.

Error IMO, not reset.

After the first reports I thought it was error too....

 

This is what R* said (for those who can't bother with the link - not you specifically):

 

"We Made adjustments to how the player’s Strength stat is calculated. Melee attacks on stationary objects such as vehicles no longer count toward Strength."

 

So after reading the comments section I came away with the conclusion they reset and made it to where car punches do nothing. I guess it's possible they just INTENDED to edit how one raises the stat and the reset was unintended.

People on these forums, like you, aren't familar with internet forums. Most people seem to only use Facebook, and cry anybody tries to "troll", at a very basic level.

I sure don't know about forums.... :D That's why I spend money hosting one with 15k plus member that pertains to another hobby of mine...but thats whatevs....the difference is there are rules...and trolls are relegated to living under bridges....i.e....IP bans for the stupid. :)

My strength went down.. But how did they know I punched cars? And why would they punish this? I thought punching cars was a pretty awesome thing. I never played sports but I would have eventually. Now I am definitely going to. Also since they aren't banning for money glitching, might as well do that too.  lmao

I want to know what f*cking planet Rockstar are from if they think Golf and Tennis ( of all the crap sports these were chosen? ) are supposed to build strength?

 

We have a goddamn muscle beach ring down on the boardwalk.

 

Pumping Iron would build muscles.  Not playing 18 holes.  Endurance?  Maybe.  

 

But this is partly Retirement simulator 2013 anyways what with stock market, golf, yachts, tennis, and f*cking yoga.
