i feel like online is falling to pieces right now and i dont like the feeling at all...
i dont like people saying R* is sh*t and they have no clue whats going on. I dont think anyone realizes the mass amounts of data and work it takes to make a game like this and in turn, the millions of people playing that either are purposely attempting to exploit the game or finding it by chance... i just feel sh*t coming i dunno
What is good for the goose is good for the gander.
I have no remorse for a company I once respected. Allow me to explain why.
GTA:O was released - Yay! It was problematic, it wasn't beta tested properly which caused a lot of painful hours amongst players. Myself included losing a level 40+ character twice. Sure compensation was given, it was appreciated too.
Next on the list, we have the glitches people used to gain advantages over other. Fair enough, there are level caps on the items. These glitches took forever to be patched and then R* mass bans a lot of players. Some of which I believe are innocent because they received cash from hackers and didn't report it.
Then we have all the nerfing of mission payouts and numerous other changes to the product after release.
Then we have their support system that answers tickets a week later. They resolve queries that are not resolved, players that are owed compensation for stuff they lost while they gained it legitimately were told off.
So you see, if they had some sort of compassion, brains, the ability to beta test their products before release etc... I'm sure half the stuff that had happened wouldn't have... well... happened.
So at the end of the day, if you gonna upset players, they are going to hack and mod their product. This is not the first game this has happened to, thought they would have learnt from their previous experience.
