I personally don't play free-aim as the reflexes get a little rusty with the passing of years but I haven't seen anyone comment on this.

 

Good news? Too little? Just doesn't matter?

I think it's pretty good news, better than no incentive at all.

I hoped it would shut up the free aim internet bad boys but I still see just as many threads similar to: Auto-aim is for X, Free aim deserves 3x money and RP. The aim choice of someone doesn't affect others in any way yet people find a way to whine.

Good news!
Hopefully there will be a lot more people in the free aim sessions now.
It's so much more challenging and actually skill-based in the free aim sessions, and the people there are much more mature. I will definately give it a shot again to find out. Earlier I've just been met with nearly empty sessions and races with 4 people in them.

I was hoping the same, but don't forget that this has only been with us for 5 minutes.  By next week we'll be back to the odd 1 or 2 threads about it.  I'm sure they'll still find some way to whine about it though, as they're obviously more interested in bitching online and comparing e-peens than actually playing the game.

i play free aim and even i'm tired of all of the f*cking posts about it. if you're such a pathetic loser that you have nothing to brag about in your life than how you play a goddamn video game, then i truly feel sorry for you. video games are a diversion, nothing more. there's enough petty competition in my actual life for me to want to deal with the same sh*t when i get home as well.

I started doing free aim missions and I enjoy it. They take 200% longer for me to complete certain ones so the 25% boost isn't really worth it for that but.... On the plus side yesterday was the first time I got owned in a lobby. A challenge is nice and I had a lot of fun.

Tanks are even worse though in free aim. I was having a great impromptu 3 v 3 fight and some moron ruins it with a tank. Took the element of skill away.

"acutally skill based"  as if aiming is the only thing in this game...    GTA is not designed for free aim.   but still nice to hear that freeaim might become popular

Aiming freely with a gamepad is just utterly retarded. I dont want to be handicapped by the input device. I would only smash the Dualshock 3 sooner or later.

Free-aim = PC.

 

Also, as I have pointed out before, race lobbies are still separated right? So free aim is absolutely no option.

 

And I also do not understand how you think that you are superior if you free-aim. It is not like you are fighting free aim vs auto-aim. Free-aim vs free-aim is just as challenging as auto-aim vs auto-aim. Because.. you know.. the others have the same advantages and disadvantages.

I agree with you, GTA is not designed for free aiming. But it is still a lot more fun :D

Imo it is skill-based, since auto-aim are so incredible easy that a horse could kill you. And no I dont think aiming is the only think in this game, but I think it is a pretty big part.

Prepare yourselves for noobs in free aim.  And you now have no one to blame but yourselves for the fact that your exclusive elite club room is now filled with butt-horrible players dying every 2 seconds for the extra twenty fiver modifier.

I heard you get 50% extra RP if you use the controller with your feet.

Saints Row is free-aim.

 

So I've been getting more accustomed to free-aim in GTAV as I play more Saints Row 4.

Yeah, but Saints Row came out on the PC, so I didn't have to half-ass it on my ps3.  Also, GTA doesn't have super powers so mighty that you can just run up and slug your way through thirty people with machine guns.  Hell, the way the AI is, more than five will rip into you if you can't aim fast enough.

Then again, I usually just grab the auto-shotty and play the line-firing game...

Obviously yes, many free-aimers requested this. It's fair, even if i'm in auto-aim lobby. This might increase a little players count in free-aim lobby.

lol so now your lack of motor skills is the controllers fault?

and free-aim is more challenging, because you know you can actually miss a shot opposed to just holding left and right trigger to make things dead

LOL.. I emailed them too.

 

 

I got sick of all the stupid and insulting posts some of these DIE HARD auto aimers where posting.

 

Infact I sent screen shots of those posts to them with my email.

 

 

I would like to thank all the asshole auto aimers here that think free aimers are 'elitist douche bags that should die slowly'..  Personally I think you helped me proved my point.


  And you now have no one to blame but yourselves for the fact that your exclusive elite club room is now blah blah blah.

 

I hate really stupid people.

 

 

 

When was free aim about being part of an exclusive elite club? 

 

 

Why do people seem to think FREE AIM is for pros?  As if we play free aim because we are awesome and never miss?

 

f*ck off with that garbage already.  Seriously.

What about all the free aimers who moan about "auto aim noobs" in cars killing me with their no skill when there is no auto aim in cars?

I take it you don't play much free aim game modes.

 

Auto Aim paying the same rewards pushes a lot of players to simply NOT bother with free aim.  And causes free aim to have less players because their is NO risk vs reward.  At least this fixes it a little bit.

 

Also. Why the f*ck should I be getting the same reward as people using an aim bot?

 

Its not 'whine' its reality.

Doesn't motivate me in the slightest.

 

25% more RP? Meh. BUT, here is hoping it motivates some...so all of these "LOOK AT ME I'M BETTER THAN YOU" threads can die down.

 

LOL, yeah right.

It's been a while since I've done a few of the missions I've done since the patch, but it seems like overall they've decreased the payouts in money and RP even further, so this "bonus" is just mitigating the damage slightly, no?

I never see any of these "look at me im better than you' threads.

 

 

I usually see a bunch of very emotional and uptight auto aim players insulting the crap out of free aim players.  Which in the end resorts to free aimers telling them to stick their aim bot up their ass.  I mean, where else is there to go with a conversation like that?

 

No one thinks they are better... They just think auto aim is f*ckin' flat out retarded.  Auto aimers take that sh*t personally and lose their minds.

 

 

Free Aimer makes a comment.  Auto Aimer weirdo claims he is an elitist douche that should die.... Free Aimers tells them learn how to f*ckin' play you stupid noob.  Its an endless cycle that can be stopped if Auto Aim mental cases just kept their damn mouth shut in the first place.

 

And this isn't about all auto aimers.  Just the really wacked out mental cases that visit this forums.    Im sure most auto aimers with a brain would agree that free aim takes more effort, skill and deserves better payouts.   You'd be dumb as a box of rocks not to agree.
