I heard it was 200 hits for 1 bar of strength, so 1000 hits, max?

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.

lol, that would actually be fun.  Pumping iron on the beach with the threat of random sociopaths looking to kill you.

If you play holes 7-9 in golf you get about 1/4 bar for 5 min of golf...

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

I will never play a game of golf or tennis on this game. I don't care how hard they try to force players into this waste of memory. if I wanted to play that kind of crap I would be playing wii sports not grand theft auto.

 

alright Tayman. now that's my kind of rage post. think of all the good stuff we lost from san andreas to make room for this crap.

I worked hard getting my strength up - not punching cars.

 

Don't see why they should reset - THE STATS ARE POINTLESS

 

We will all soon be maxed out on every stat by just playing the game.

 

Yes some faster than others - but they max out so we will all have 100% anyway.

 

My flying stat is at 100% but I did not go round flying for hours just to improve it - it just happened while playing.

My strength isn't reset, however my lung capacity is visually 100% but acts as if it's 0. It used to take quite a while for me to run out of breath, now its almost instant....

They are usually there during the day time/early morning.  Try then and drive away then back a few times if they aren't there.

ok, i just played one round of golf solo and it went up 3 points


Last night I played a mini round (holes 7-9) and gained 6 points and 900 rp. Its pretty quick and the only tricky shot is the tee off on 7. I was -3 for the round which I believe improves the rp, don't know about strength.

If my strength was reset to 20, I gained 21 points from two full rounds - can't confirm exactly as the first time I checked after hearing about the reset my strength was 41 and I believe I had only played 2 rounds since 1.06 as I've been busy playing with my bifta.

Or just point the gun at them to spook. They drop it either way.

Beating them up just for a golf club is much more fulfilling.

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?

The punk move is punching a defensless car.  lol  Seriously,  so R* reset the strength to get back at the money glitchers and not to get back at the ppl who built their strength by punching cars?

Anyway,  I think they should've made strength building like SA which is to lift weights and workout.  Punching ppl should not have been the way to build it.

They were testing their ability to mass-reset. That's all it was.

Please don't me tion pumping iron again, I just had a flashback to the good ol days when I could neglect the gym,eat tons of cheesbugers then run around watching CJ look like Fat Alberts stunt double.

I'm crying on the inside now, thanks a lot!

Easiest way to build strength without grinding is just to fight and beat the sh*t out of your mechanic every time he manages to actually deliver your car. Oh, and every time you see an NPC that looks like your mechanic.

I have two characters with strength at about 90% each, neither was reset or reduced but then I built their stat playing golf.

I also feel that the strength stat helps you to stay on your bike when you collide with another player during motorcycle races while the other player tends to fall.

f*ck sports.  Get a team deathmatch going of friends and have a fists-only brawl.   It's a hell of a lot more fun and it'll get your strength up faster than anything other than punching cars did.
