With millions of dollars getting given out at random to hundreds of  "unwilling" legit players daily, wouldnt it be sensible for Rockstar to disable bounties until they have found a fix for the glitch like how they disabled giving cash to other players?

 

Im no multiplayer economy expert or anything but if they really want to protect their cash cards they should stop the virus from spreading!

 

Obviously they cant stop everyone from cheating but the way it is with the bounties things are getting out of control and embarassing for them.

 

Either that or they have resigned to not being able to fix it anytime soon!

 

On a side note why dont we have Maude as a contact for setting bounties instead of Lester?

I noted in another thread, you have to sit there and call Lester and see what the bounty is on the person with the bounty and see if it's okay or not. Not that that takes the fun out of it to some degree or anything.

 

Some people with far more knowledge of programming than myself have noted that there are possible fixes that could be applied, but it's a matter of will they be and if so, when. Additionally, these people seem persistent as heck - they get put in CP and then figure a way out within hours. I don't understand the technical details at all, but as I've said before, imagine what some of these people could do applying their focus and knowledge to things more meaningful than GTA.

What if they rob a shop and share billions?

 

Still spreading and no bounties.

Disabling bounties isn't going to stop gifted money, They'll just rob stores and give it to people that how I  ended up getting mine I never asked for it.

Ok so how does this work? I thought that if someone robbed a shop they could only share the $1800 or whatever from the proceeds. And for anyone saying lacking logic or dumb idea its hardly as dumb as Rockstars attempt to prevent it all, after all there are legit players getting pulled into this mess aswell, and this feature is one of the reasons why.

But if they disabled the bounties, they would have no one left to ban...and then would actually have to address the hackers.

 

Nobody ain't got time for dat!

Ya right, people would have cheated and hacked whether cash cards existed or not. If you really think cash cards are what made the glitchers glitch or hackers hack than i feel sorry for you and your intelligence. They cheated because the game was too hard for them and they wanted an easier way to feel accomplished on the game. Its the same reason people were using god mode glitches and all the other hacks when halo online came out.

I assume you mean that in regard to the lack of logic Rockstar used in tackling the situation.

So how does the glitching millions robbing stores work? sorry im a n00b when it comes to the inner workings of the glitching in the game. Killzone i remember you posted a good tip to potentially avoid getting gifted millions,see anyone over level 200 bounce, guess it can happen to us all lol.

Well considering you can only place a bounty on someone once every 40 minutes now...

On ps3 there's a way around having them gift you the money through bounties and even doing jobs together. Last night I got 400million just minding my own business in free roam. Didn't rob a store didn't do any jobs and didn't have a bounty. It just pops up saying "Mr x gave you x amount"

Well then, I guess we're pretty far up sh*t creek then arent we? I suppose the best thing to do in such a case would be to report it straight away and never bank it until it gets fixed.

Still though, if you kill a bounty you get dragged into it too without being a "hacker" and you are also capable of spreading the money to the whole game. I suppose it is an unstoppable monster at this stage!

FWIW i'm lvl 246 and am not a hacker and i'm pretty sure i've seen people <lvl 50 giving out money.

The RDR bounty system was better, and more realistic frankly.

No, problem is not only bounties, they can share with another method which you don't know.

I'd rather have billions of dollars going around than to keep having content cut.

Besides the bounties are just a symptom of the problem, which really is R*'s coding. The buck stops there.
