The thing I looked forward to the most was the start. Competing against everybody else again to find out, who has the biggest e-penis. Finding a legit way to stay ahead of everybody, raping them with weapons that they haven't unlocked yet, owning them with cars that they can't effort. For me it was pretty much the most epic thing about GTA V on PS3.

 

But to me, it seems to be a huge bummer to not be able to compete against everybody else from scratch. All of the early-game will be ruined by tank whores and other wannabes.

 

On the same matter a suggestion: Seperate newcomers and people who transfer their account for the first few weeks or so.

 

What do you think?

What do you think?

You actually get put in with low level players right now if you are also low level. I started a new account last week and most of my lobbies are level 4-30. Haven't seen a tank yet. Its really nice.

It's a good option to be able to exercise, one which I personally will be doing so.

 

You don't have to use it, if you get your kicks from starting over again, then don't transfer it and start over again.

You apparently don't get the point.

 

I want to COMPETE against other players from scratch. What is the point if I start @ level 1 if everybody else drives around in a tank? I want to be given the choice to pick a completly seperated world/server/whatever where it is guaranteed that NOBODY has transfered his account. I want to go through the times where people couldn't effort the best car with the finest tuning there is. I want to compete with other players to our dream-car-park etc.

I'm in between, I wanted to re-experience my character and go through the game again with the new enhancements but I'm sure at one point I'm gonna wish they added that feature.

I'm not trying to be rude, but would you want such a thing to happen in real life is well? There's never going to be a level playing field completely, so if you choose to stay at first level instead of transferring your info, then I really don't know what to tell you.

Oh, I understood that perfectly. It's just not ever going to happen.

"Hyperion suggests that you do not think about the fact that this is only a digital reconstruction of your original body, which died the first time you respawned. Do NOT think about this!"

"The Hyperion corporation wishes to clarify that the bright light you saw after death was our digistruct technology, and not a higher power. Not higher than Hyperion, anyway."

I'd LMFAO at a R* version of this when transferring.

it will be pretty ironic to see if they will transfer my 9 digit bank account too.

i mean, i get the impression if they were going to take it from me, they would already have long ago.

From their wording, I'm assuming you will be able to. Since all of your info is saved on the social club, it should be a breeze to copy/paste.

There will be a slew of new players that pick this up. Just make a new character if you want to be low level with a bunch of other low levels. It says there will be new character customization options, maybe once it arrives the character creator will be better and we may want new characters. For that matter who says they won't open another character slot, then you have the best of both worlds.

although to transfer your stats to pc it implies you bought the game on it.

But what, apart from graphics, is improved in the next gen versions? I don't need fancy graphics to have a good time if the gameplay is 100% the same. But if they introduce other stuff like animals, hunting, and some of the left out vehicles like the cargo plane and blimp online...

on PC there will be a large community of modding (no, not the fun ruining console modding your thinking about. single player enjoyable change the game to what you like PC mods

The problem is, even if you work your ass off and gain a highler level than any other newcomer, you will simply end up with people who transfered their account. You will not be playing with people who also worked their asses off anymore. You will never get the chance to rape newcomers. You will always meet people who have a higher level than you. That's something that NEVER happened to me on the PS3 until I ended in the bad sports lobby, where some idiotic glitchers were kept under arrest.

 

As I REALLY don't want to get raped by anybody without a fair chance to defend myself, the only option left is to also transfer my account. Something that I don't want to do because I already have accomploshed everything I want. That's the main reason why I have sold my PS3 and GTA V early this year (@ level ~125).

Yeah I wouldn't be mad if we all had to start over. I know most people would hate it but it would kinda refresh the game. Still, if I had to choose, I'm picking the transfer.

"You will never get the chance to rape newcomers."

wtf u doing here? go rape newcomers in watch dogs while you can, or did it loose the hype spot yet?

it's these people who make online gaming horrible, the hype crowd of retards who move from game to game making it suck right from the beggining.

i play videogames for fun, these dudes are overcompensating for sh*tty lives.

If they didn't allow account transfer I wouldn't bother buying its on PS4. Although, I have a horrible feeling that on launch day we'll see about fifty threads here saying "My character got deleted when I tried to transfer to PS4/ONE wtf Rockstar??!)

 

So I think I'll give it a few days before attempting it based on how badly the launch was for this gen.
