I am not mad about your comments, i don't think anybody is tbh, we are just discussing it, but when you put it like

Everything I said is true and if you don't see that, then I don't know what to tell you."

 

I just agree with you, because i don't think you are open for any other opinions considering your facts.

Umm..it is an example of how an online game is successful.  I have never played WOW and don't have any intention to.  That doesn't change the fact that WOW is a very successful game that even after 10 years has a huge playerbase and still makes tons of money off of their monthly subscriptions.  It's just one of many online game that prove a monthly subscription is the way to go when it comes to having an income for the company without killing the content in the game.  

 

You can argue all you want, but GTAO is dying off because of how the dev team is handling it.  The fact that there hasn't been any new gameplay content in 7 months is exactly why it's dying off.  I was in 4 clans that had hundreds of players that I interacted with on a daily basis.  90% of those players are now gone.  Lobbies are empty all the time( or have less than 8 players in them).  This is all proof of this game dying off, and the dev team is to blame for that.  Cash cards were a horrible idea and it shows.  They were a good idea for Rockstar to make money for several months, but they stated many times that they wanted this game to evolve and last for 2 to 3 years.  They were a bad idea for the longevity of this game.

 

I actually really like this game, except for it becoming repetitive and boring.  I check the social club every day hoping for something new to be added.  Cars, guns, and clothes don't excite me, as well as most gamers.  Rockstar wants this game to last for years, but it won't last that long because they keep delaying the things that would give it longevity...because they are afraid those things will kill their cash card business.  

 

Anyone that sits and really thinks about it knows this to be true.  Why would I buy a cash card if I had new co-op missions all the time that payed 18 to 20K...or heists that are a blast and pay HOPEFULLY 50 to 100K per person??  90% of the people that play this game wouldn't buy those cards if we had great ways to make money that weren't boring and repetitive.  It's just common sense.

lol...there you have it :)  Sorry to cluster up your post.  I really really liked this game.  I played longer than most of my clans and friends, but the repetitive nature of the game and nothing new added in 7 months have killed it for me.  I try to turn it on once in awhile and play because I did really have fun on this game, but it's just become so boring.  I had high hopes for the capture creator.  I made a game-mode that was really different than anything else I have seen in this game, but the "forced weapons only" option was left out of the capture creator, so that killed my capture mode.  Rockstar once again dropped the ball...not having forced weapons only option kills a lot of really cool and unique ideas.  This was what would have pulled me back in, but they screwed it up once again.  Now...it's back to boring and repetitive stuff.  

 

I don't hate this game, I actually loved it and that's why I hate the things Rockstar is doing.  It's killing the playerbase and making the game obsolete.  I had high hopes for this game and I hope it changes soon.  I will be back to play GTAO again....after they add more stuff to do and fix some things.

I love free aim.  I played auto aim for awhile, but once I tried free aim and saw how much better it was I never went back.  I sucked at first with my aiming, but I got used to it.  I'm pretty good now...well I was before I quit playing as much. lol

Imma tell you guys straight.

 

find a popular spot on the map. say.... lsc.

 

and claim that bitch. put your pv in front of the door so people cant get into it and just shoot everyone who gets close.

 

i just did it for a half hour straight and got a dozen kills on someone 30 levels over me....only for him to get his tank and suck the fun out of small arms combat.

 

i still killed him and his tank with rpgs and stuff. but still.

 

VERY fun.

 

find a popular spot, claim it. let nobody in. its more fun with friends.

 

Now I'm really confused.

 

Why aren't you obsessively posting your bragging rights over at the CoD forum? Why aren't you playing CoD?  Since increasing your K/D is all you appear to really care about when it comes to playing GTAO, then why bother bragging about your badass ice cold killa tactics here?  Isn't CoD's system better designed to do what you're doing just to earn a cheap K/D bump?

 

Or is it really because you suck at CoD? Butt hurt over having your @$$ handed to you everywhere you go in CoD? So FM is the only place where you can get even and push your sh*tty griefing playing style on other unsuspecting players?   Especially those players who're forced to go on passive since they don't give a f*ck about playing the game the way you do?

 

If your entire concept of MMOs is a continuous PvP, mindless dog eat dog f*ckfest, then why the f*ck aren't you playing other MMO games which have superior PvP system designs v. GTAO?

This game is so repetitive. All I find myself doing is driving around seeing what people are up too. Nothing else to explore, no where to enter, lack of customization. Any ideas what I can do? And does anyone else feel this way?

i agree, it's getting boring, the payout isn't much and player killers are so annoying, i don't play much now.

Not bored with the game, but I have be playing a lot less lately, though that's mainly because I have a big backlog of other games I'd been putting off while playing this.

Another post in this thread about cash cards. Get over it already.

Think of it like this.

From a business perspective, you don't release new items every month as people want to enjoy what their bought for a few months.

You don't see a new Barbie every month. They wait a few months for people to get bored then release another.

Cash cards should actually be viewed as a good thing. You want cash card players to keep playing as rockstar will want to release good updates to keep these players playing and buying cash cards.

I don't see the problem with cash cards, no one is forced to buy them. Plus as long as people keep buying them there should be more free content.

 

You completely miss the point.  Sure, nobody is forced to buy them, but they kill the gameplay content that could have been added long ago.  I went into detail about this above.  New guns and new cars IS NOT NEW CONTENT.  Adding new things to do in the game is content, not cars.  New cars are neat and everything, but we are still grinding the same missions over and over.  Rockstar sits back and laughs that so many people in this game don't even see the fact that they have added NOTHING NEW to do in this game since release.  They throw a couple cars and guns out there and tell you "Hey, either grind the same missions you've been grinding for 7 months OR buy a cash card".  This game will not last for years like they want it to because of this horrible dev strategy.


To be honest at the moment they can't put TONS of new gameplay content into the game, because the servers can't handle it.

I love playing GTA online, i really do, but i would stop instantly if i had to pay a monthly subscription fee for it, i rather buy a cash card if you don't mind

It doesnt matter that ONE guys says he would quit if it were a monthly subscription.  The facts show the truth...there are several online games out there, which happen to be the most successful online games AND have the biggest player bases...and they are MONTHLY SUBSCRIPTION.  The reason people are willing to pay that subscription is because they are always getting new content that really adds to the game.  GTAV has virtually had ZERO new gameplay content...ZERO.  That is the reason this game is dying off.  

 

Stop ranting...wasnt talking to you.

No what is manure is that people like you actually call new cars and guns "content".  You fall right into Rockstars "manure".  It's been 7 months and not a single bit of real content has been added.  Micro-transactions DO kill online games, because it takes away from the gameplay and in this case it limits what Rockstar will put into the game.  

Maybe some of you are okay with having a new car or a new gun and clothing, but the mass majority of people want real content.  Real content is new things to do in the game, not grindin the same missions over and over to buy a car.  If Rockstar gave one sh*t about their playerbase, they would have added heists, the mission creator, and just more open world activities long long ago.  They won't do that because those things are great ways of making money, which would kill their cash card business.  I would rather them put more things to do in the game and actually have paid-for DLC.  At least then we would be getting some content that actually adds to the game.  

 

I'm just amused that some of you don't get it.  If you don't see how better paying activities would kill their cash card income, then you're just flat out blind or stupid.  There is a reason why these things haven't been added and it's obvious to see.

I like this game very much and I still enjoy it from time to time when I play with friends. We take full advantage of our imagination and what there is to do but it seems to me that Rockstar overlooked the importance of interaction and real-time activities in an open world such as GTAO.

Activities that you can do "on the go" without always having to launch a lobby session or mini-game - most of which are time limited.

 

An example would be being able to grab a surfboard and hit the waves for no other reason than to have fun.

Or just the simple action of being able to pick stuff up and hold it or throw it at others. Another good example of "on the go" stuff would be the ability to climb mountain walls and some buildings.

Scuba gear? Hunting? Fishing? Casino? These are just a few things, I'm sure you can think of a lot more. Character models and movement is limited and there's no crouching ability unless behind cover.

 

If you find yourself driving, flying, running, parachuting around most of the time it's because that's basically what you are limited to.

Stunts are fun and with the creator mode I'm sure you can create your own stunts. But when you play your own creations you are limited by time and no longer in free-roam.

 

You can interact with the police but we all know how that ends. Pedestrians are fun when they decide to fight back or when the guy says - "What the f*ck duuuuude?!", and you just have to kill the bastard.

But you can't ask them to jump in the car with you and drive them off a cliff.

If it's not content what would you call it?  What do you expect within the first 7 months of a game that will be around for 2 or 3 years before the next title in the series?  We've got some small, free DLC so there is nothing to complain about.  Other games either have less or you would be expected to pay for what has been released so far.  What you don't get is that microtransations keep DLC free.  It's hardly a difficult concept to figure out.

 

Clearly Rockstar does care about their player base as they have worked hard to fix the issues with the game.  Obviously this is an on-going task but a look at the fixes in the patch notes speaks volumes for the amount of work going on.  Grinding is a total and utter myth.  I have $$11.6 million saved up and have yet to grind in this game.  Play the game and money just happens.  Run around in free roam destroying everything and it disappears pretty quick.

 

How you don't get that microtransations help keep DLC free is beyond all reasonable comprehension.

I can make the game fun for you.  Spend all of your money on vehicles, buy the sh*ttiest apartment you can own, put 9k bounties on everyone in the lobby, call lester to remove the cops for 3 minutes each time in a row.  Now the game is fun.

Who cares if it's free DLC.  I'd rather pay 10 to 15 dollars for some good dlc that actually adds thing to do in the game.  You can preach all you want about how there is plenty to do, but the mass exodus of players online is proof enough that this game is already dying off.  The successful online games out there kept players by constantly adding things to do, not by boring them so much they quit and come back later.  Most players won't come back once they are done with it.  They move on to another game. 

 

Free dlc means nothing when it's just a car and guns.  Who cares?  This is why players have quit.  If Rockstar cared about their player base, they would have been adding DLC that really adds to the gameplay, not boring people into quitting.  I would gladly pay for the DLC if it were good and actually added new gameplay to the experience.  This game has added nothing in 7 months.  You can argue all you want, but the empty lobbies shows that they have failed with their lame DLC.  Oooh...a new car!  That adds fun for about an hour, unless your easily amused.

Clearly Rockstar does care about their player base as they have worked hard to fix the issues with the game.  Obviously this is an on-going task but a look at the fixes in the patch notes speaks volumes for the amount of work going on.  Grinding is a total and utter myth.  I have $$11.6 million saved up and have yet to grind in this game.  Play the game and money just happens.  Run around in free roam destroying everything and it disappears pretty quick.

 

How you don't get that microtransations help keep DLC free is beyond all reasonable comprehension.

I beg to differ.

Call of Duty is one of the most successful multiplayer games in the world and that doesn't keep adding things to do. It's always point, shoot, killstreak, die and it always will be. Hell they rarely add anything new... just re-skinned weapons and maps.

Need I mention Battlefield doing almost the same thing?

Another post in this thread about cash cards. Get over it already.

Think of it like this.

From a business perspective, you don't release new items every month as people want to enjoy what their bought for a few months.

You don't see a new Barbie every month. They wait a few months for people to get bored then release another.

Cash cards should actually be viewed as a good thing. You want cash card players to keep playing as rockstar will want to release good updates to keep these players playing and buying cash cards.

I don't see the problem with cash cards, no one is forced to buy them. Plus as long as people keep buying them there should be more free content.

 

 

Exactly!  Claiming they kill the game play and other such cliched trash is total and utter bovine manure.

 

No what is manure is that people like you actually call new cars and guns "content".  You fall right into Rockstars "manure".  It's been 7 months and not a single bit of real content has been added.  Micro-transactions DO kill online games, because it takes away from the gameplay and in this case it limits what Rockstar will put into the game.  

Maybe some of you are okay with having a new car or a new gun and clothing, but the mass majority of people want real content.  Real content is new things to do in the game, not grindin the same missions over and over to buy a car.  If Rockstar gave one sh*t about their playerbase, they would have added heists, the mission creator, and just more open world activities long long ago.  They won't do that because those things are great ways of making money, which would kill their cash card business.  I would rather them put more things to do in the game and actually have paid-for DLC.  At least then we would be getting some content that actually adds to the game.  

 

I'm just amused that some of you don't get it.  If you don't see how better paying activities would kill their cash card income, then you're just flat out blind or stupid.  There is a reason why these things haven't been added and it's obvious to see.

Who cares if it's free DLC.  I'd rather pay 10 to 15 dollars for some good dlc that actually adds thing to do in the game.  You can preach all you want about how there is plenty to do, but the mass exodus of players online is proof enough that this game is already dying off.  The successful online games out there kept players by constantly adding things to do, not by boring them so much they quit and come back later.  Most players won't come back once they are done with it.  They move on to another game. 

 

Free dlc means nothing when it's just a car and guns.  Who cares?  This is why players have quit.  If Rockstar cared about their player base, they would have been adding DLC that really adds to the gameplay, not boring people into quitting.  I would gladly pay for the DLC if it were good and actually added new gameplay to the experience.  This game has added nothing in 7 months.  You can argue all you want, but the empty lobbies shows that they have failed with their lame DLC.  Oooh...a new car!  That adds fun for about an hour, unless your easily amused.  

 

you can buy thesame clothes from the cheapest clothing store to the most expensive store (no variety at all), plus i'm still waiting for the long since promised heist dlc. :whistle:

Sure, but people love to have new maps/areas.  Have we seen that in this game?  Nope.  Call of Duty may not add things to do, but they add new maps.  Thats better by far than a new car that we have to grind the same repetitive missons just to get, or buy a cash card(which I will never do).  Plus COD isn't a good example because it's not an open world "ever-changing" game like GTAO.  GTAO is closer to a game like Defiance or WOW.  These are open world games that promote co-operative play and exploring.  COD isn't anywhere near the same type of online game.

Nope. My crew is active, funny, and fun to play with. Plus, more than half of the people on my (nearly full) friends list play GTA regularly, so I always have people to roam with.

If you're bored, I've got a suggestion.  But you need to sit down because it's a bit radical.  Are you sitting?  Good.  Here is how you get around the boredom you're experiencing with GTAO:

 

Play a different game.

No way was GTA IV better than V, as far as the online game goes.  GTAV is by far the best online GTA game ever...but that's not saying much.  The problem is that Rockstar has the micro-transactions with GTA$.  That ruins the game because it makes Rockstar want to limit the content and the ways of making money.  If this game had tons of fun ways to make money, NOBODY would buy the GTA$.  
 
For that reason, Rockstar really makes the game boring and repetitive...because that forces people to buy GTA$.  Rockstar is very greedy, so they purposefully make the game boring.  The best thing for online gaming is a monthly subscription(as long as the dev team always puts out great content constantly).  I know some people hate the idea of a monthly subscription, but that is the best way for them to make money while also supplying us with endless amounts of new content and new gameplay elements.
 
The GTA$ severely limits what the dev team will add to the game because anything they add that is fun, exciting, and makes players want to grind...well...it takes away income that Rockstar makes by offering GTA$ for purchase.  Anyone that doesn't see this isn't paying attention and hasn't played many online games with a big world.  
 
GTA$ kills this game and makes it boring..bottom line.  The reason heists aren't out yet is because they will be decent pay that people love to grind because of the fun you will have doing it....what does that do??  It takes away income from GTA$
 
What this game needs more than anything is the co-op mission creator.  But they won't do that because those will end up being up to 20K for a hard mission...that's too much money and too much fun...so it takes away their gta$ income.  
 
 
Rockstar is greedy and doesn't know how to make an online game have longevity.  THat's why the player base is dead after less than a year.  I hate World of Warcraft, but there is a reason it's been 10 years or so and the game STILL makes sh*tloads of money.  They have a monthly subscription, but they offset that by having constant and consistent gameplay content added.

You speak the truth. I would actually rather pay a monthly subscription than have this GTA$ nonsense.
