With the Hotfix to the BF Dune Buggy it got me thinking that since this forum has such an awesome community, for the most part, would it be ok to explore the idea of organizing free money lobbies for those forum members who would be interested in such things?  Many forum members such as myself have been "gifted" more money than we'll ever need and want to share it with players who will appreciate such kind heartedness. 

 

Most importantly, I think there should be some firm ground rules to begin in respect to privacy and keeping a tight circle on those interested in such things.  Free Money Lobbies are where those with hacked consoles or who were given a lot of cash are able to gift significant or massive amounts of money to other players.  Some players might be interested in getting a few hundred thousand in cash, some might want to get a few million.  I also believe there should be a reasonable "limit" to how much money a player should receive if this forum can be utilized this way.

 

Next, privacy.  Those who have read this forum for awhile know that there are a lot of snitches, forum trolls and just plain unhappy people who dump their negativity at any opportunity.  It's really a shame that so many gamers attempt to project their playstyle upon others and that if they don't adhere to their purist standards that those that they attack are doing "wrong".  So if there are any such comments like that in this thread, please have the discipline to ignore these people.

 

Fact is, the modded consoles are inevitably going to be fixed server side.  In respect to the BF Dune Buggy Hot Fix of 12/11/13, why not strike while the iron is hot and organize a couple of PS3 and XBOX lobbies to really help out those in need?

 

So just to float the initial idea, is anybody with modded consoles or been gifted money like myself and want to share it with others interested in this idea? Sure there is some risk which is why I would recommend NOT mentioning anything about PSN or XBOX Live account names, that information can always be finalized once a good core group of forum members can be established and there hopefully will be no kind of blowback to anybodys accounts.

 

Again this is just an exploratory thread, any actual lobbies that would be created would all be organized via PM and then covertly via in-game chat ideally.  So if you're interested and your forum name is not your account name, chime in and state if you'd be willing to share or recieve and if you can share much could you share and if you're in need, how much do you think you'd like to be gifted?

 

I'll start and express that I have a couple of hundred million I know I'll never need.

 

And if this is a totally unacceptable idea, please anybody with the ability simply lock the thread and I most certainly will never make another thread of this nature.

Yeah Cockstar hotfixed the BF Dune Buggy exploit.  The Dune Buggy now costs a whopping $65,000 instead of $20,000.  Still sells for $39,000.

Lol, that's just a ridiculous price for that car that you can't normally mod. My modded one is awesome though. It's comparable to the Bifta now and I just love to drive it. I just don't even pay attention to my gps anymore, I got in a straight line to my target, over mountains, over anything.

I would definitely be interested in this if people are actually willing to give some cash. I would just be interested in purchasing some of the more expensive items like the tank and buzzard and also being able to upgrade a few vehicles.

free money lobbies would be nice, but R* would come down on you and ban you just for helping other people

I could do with some cash, down to 200k

I claimed two 2bil bounties on xbox, shared a bil w/my crew leader since he didn't get to kill anyone w/the huge bounty on their heads (game allows sharing of $ post mission/bounty claim).

I'd toss people a few million if I could....

Edit*

R* has not banned any player. Bad sport or cheater pool at WORST.

And why would R* punish me for sharing $ I obtained by claiming a couple of bounties? I did nothing the game doesn't already allow.....I didn't set the 2bil bounties, but I sure a sh*t claimed them!

I was gifted a large sum of money. I used to sup. up mod cars for randoms. Not anymore. I upgraded a non premium car for a guy. He was really thankful at the time.. What bothered me was; a few days later I joined a lobby he was in and first thing he said to me was "I want this car with all the upgrades!" No "hi, or how's it going?" All this while I was being attacked and he didn't help me out.

I said it bothered me he asked/demanded somethig & disn't help me out when I was being attacked.

He didn't seem to care.

I told him I was gonna upgrade the car for him. I took the car to lsc and put a ignotion bomb on the car.


Told him to get in and enjoy. He hopped in and kablooey!

I shot him a few more times, unfriended him and told him to be more thankful next time.

I also was having a bad day.. This made it a little better.

I would be interested in this idea, (receiving money, I'm broke) if possible.

 

But I believe (correct me if I'm wrong) that there is no way to gift large sums of money to other players accounts without modding the console. Are you asking for the ability to share the cash, or for permission to organize these money sharing events? (or both?)

Basically every other forum for GTA is doing this now, don't see why this one should be different.  And I, like everyone else, could use a few hundred million lol

I haven't really seen any other active gta forums out there.  Could you name a few?
