These days I only like to play in invite only sessions.  However, I end up eventually getting tossed into a public session after the end of a mission/deathmatch/race.  This doesn't happen after the first job . .  .usually it takes about four to five and then once I'm back in freeroam I notice other white dots on the map :-/

 

Does this happen to other people?  I'm assuming it does . . . and is there any kind of way to prevent this from happening?

Happened to me yesterday playing with some crew mates. I don't think there is any way to prevent it from happening. It just occurs on It's own. Sometimes you may be put into a public lobby, sometimes you may be lucky and it puts you into an invite only lobby.

 

We did a couple of races and went back to free mode. A crew mate and I were both put into a public lobby, while the other crew mate was put into an invite only lobby. It's just luck and random.

No idea how to avoid it, seems to be how the game works. Why invite only though? The chaos of free roam is part of the charm for me.

I used to play GTAO just to get into free roam fights.  I got bored of them and nowadays, I just wanted to do Jobs, but without getting mowed down when I'm tossed back in freeroam for a few seconds.  I can't help but get really annoyed when someone kills me while I'm still loading into freeroam  :lol:

 

Another reason:  now that I'm no longer a billionaire, I try to avoid freeroam fights because they end up being expensive!  And tanks . . . they get annoying too.

They have no reliable room or lobby system. If you're in an invite only room when you accept a job or invite from your friends, you end up in a private room when you enter free roam. Even if you're in the same private room.

I have been jumping into random races through my phone all night.  Started off in an invite-only session; most times I left a race and went back to freemode I was still in invite-only.  Once I ended up in a full open session (fortunately at the other end of the map since I had a $9k NPC bounty on me for stealing a car), then after the next race I was back in a private session.  Bizarre.
