http://www.rockstarg...e-cheaters.html

 

In recent weeks, a small number of Grand Theft Auto Online players sought to exploit the game by generating and distributing game-breaking amounts of in-game cash, disrupting the experience for other players.
 
We will continue to issue title updates on an ongoing basis to counter the negative impact this has had on gameplay, and as part of today’s maintenance period, we are removing the counterfeit GTA$ from the game's economy. Anyone who innocently received GTA$ as a result of these exploits but did not engage in cheating to acquire it will not face any further action - the funds will just be removed, and you'll be able to keep any items you currently own.
 
Those who actively engaged in cheating and exploiting the game in this manner will, however, be subject to in-game penalties at our discretion. This may include being placed in isolated cheater pools or banned from GTA Online altogether.
 
Should you ever encounter someone in GTA Online that appears to be taking advantage of exploits in your session, we ask that you alert us directly via the in-game reporting functionality. In the Pause menu, under the Online tab, select Players and scroll to the offending player. From there, select Report and choose Exploits from the violation options.
 
We're grateful for the community's continued support in dealing with these issues and once again apologize to anyone that has had their Grand Theft Auto Online experience sullied by these exploits that broke the game's natural flow. Please stay tuned for lots more news about GTA Online in the weeks ahead.

Glad Rockstar is finally taking Guard and Setting The Field against the cheaters. Maybe finally we can play a version of GTAO that is within the spirit of the game. Brilliant captaincy.

R* has just posted about Online Cheaters.
 
It is titled:
"Taking Aim at Online Cheaters"

Laughed out loud @ "Small number of GTA: Online players".

 

Yes, Rockstar, 10/16 people in every lobby was certainly a small number.

Sweet!

 

WOOOOO!

 

The first thing I'm doing is driving my chrome Adder to LSC, selling it, calling my mechanic for another one, then driving to the Airport to fly my purchased Titan, right after searching through every piece of clothing in the game (which I own all of) to find the perfect outfit.

Any word on anything involving glitched RP? I didnt see anything in the official comment. I assume nothing but wanted to ask.

 I am going to guess they're going to go back and bar anyone from selling their cars that are worth over 50k.

Don't be so sure of that. They could have changed the re-sell date of those cars. Like they did with cars bought before patch 1.07... now they can just have set it to can't sell cars bought after patch 2.0....

I don't think they care about rp as it won't affect their  profits. 

 

I would laugh if the moment we log back on we get gifted billions again.
