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:
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?
