Never.

 

Not since 1.06

 

Used to get them at about the same regularity as Simeon lists/HPV and Armored Cash Trucks.

On a regualr basis. I'd say 75% of the time I'm in a free roam lobby for 15 mins or more  I see a crate drop.

Almost never now.

The last one I remember seeing was a special crate drop a couple weeks ago.

OP, you should also ask whether people play mostly in open sessions or invite only, and what platform (PS3/360) they play on. There's plenty of people who havn't seen a crate for months, but there's also plenty who still get plenty. It's very odd.

I see them all the time. It's a matter of "how often" do they actually work.

i play on 360 and am mostly in public sessions and never see crate drops just big green circle no crates.

Last time i had a crate drop for me in solo/private only was back before patch 1.6 which seems to have f*cked up the crate drop ratio.

They still happen for me, but it's feast or famine. Some sessions there will be multiple regular & special crate drops, then I'll go days before another.

if and when will rockstar patch crate drops to spawn again and happen more frequently back when gtao first launched?

That also needs an answer.

I'm on PS3 . . . I haven't seen a *single one* since at least the last patch.  Lots of armored trucks, though.

I'm sick of these crates. I can't even really enjoy the game anymore because I have to spend most of my time dodging them, otherwise I get crushed. I wish I never even met Ron.

I snagged a crate today in a full public lobby on Xbox.  I was already in my Buzzard, so when the notification came out I checked the map to see where it was going to land.  It was way up north, and all the action was down in town.  A few minutes later I checked the map and saw the big circle was gone, so I flew up there to see whether it dropped or not.  it did!  I blasted the dudes guarding the crate from the Buzzard, and got the loot with no competition for miles.  Easiest $4000 / 400rp ever.  

 

edit: I'm level 57, and the lobby was mostly level 20 - 60, with one guy over level 150.

About the same as before the patches; I haven't had any problems with crates, since I see them almost every time I stay in a Free-Roam lobby. I've been seeing a lot of Armored Trucks lately though.

This is in Free-Aim too. Are they non-existant back in Traditional and Assisted? It's been a while since I played in those.
