Actually, the hate for cash cards is painfully obvious:
R* ruined GTA Online to get you to buy them. If you buy them, you are willingly submitting yourself as R*'s pawn.
Yeah making it so that you can start missions that give good payouts from the start menu and adding new content along with steady fixes sure did ruin GTAO.
It was so perfect the first few months with the constant server crashes, the cloud issues, people losing their characters, cheaters pretty much everywhere. Ah man things sure were great before Rockstar decided to "ruin" them!
Allow me to put this in a way that your undeveloped brain might possibly be able to understand:
R* promised "Free DLC" throughout GTA Online, but banked that "Free DLC" entirely on cash card sales. When those underpreformed due to money glitches/exploits, R* decided to punish legit players by nerfing the sh*t out of payouts while still keeping everything the same ridiculous price since day one. Instead of actually trying to fix all those gamebreaking issues right away, they were more concerned about the sales of their precious cash cards. The fact that they introduced a brand new "Whale Shark Card" before anything that would actually add to the game such as HEISTS should be an immediate indicator of this.
You do realize the billing team isn't the same employees that deal with live fixes and content updates right? I really hope you can understand this the 100th time I've said this to you, honestly how much more of a naive crybaby can you be, it's like you're constantly PMSing about cash cards.
And the effort and time that goes into adding a new cash card is literally nothing in comparison to the time and effort that they have to spend to research issues, go over patches and work on the release plan for those patches. And they have given the free DLCs that they originally promised aside from heists, plus another one that they didn't mention on online's release.
I'm just going to label you a lost cause, because trying to make you see the glaringly obvious is like trying to convince a brick wall to do the same.
I'm just going to label you an ignorant moron, because you have no substance to add to your constant bitching and crying, it's the same naive bullsh*t every time, you have no clue what you're talking about and it becomes more and more obvious every argument, instead of making coherent replies to counter-arguments towards your bitching you give backpedal responses like the above.
And payouts are just fine, spend more time playing the game instead of crying on here.
Wow, you have R*'s dick so high up your ass that I'm surprised that you even have the energy to post sh*t like that.
R* went out of their way to punish legit players like me because they made a broken ass game. The last straw was when R* decided that a bunch of harmless vehicles should be removed (stolen) for no good reason, never mind that players spent thousands of their legitimately earned dollars to get it, and possibly done using real money with their precious cash cards.
And again you completely dodge the previous counter argument towards your naive comments. Well done.
And lol they didn't punish legit players in any way, you sound like the biggest baby I've ever seen on these forums. They made this game so easy for legit players in the beginning, with ridiculous payouts, replay functions, and very very easy missions. And they put back the ratloaders for everyone and even practically gave us the money back that we invested in them by making the modifications free. Plus you can start NPC missions through the start menu that give 18k+ payouts while taking like ~5minutes to complete with friends, how much easier do you need this game to be honestly.
I don't exactly see what's "broken" about this game, why don't you try elaborating for once?
