For months on end this has been a huge problem I've seen ppl complain about. No one wants to be thrown into 10000000rp or nonsense matches, right?
By doing this you will only get put into Rockstar Created and Verified matches (and friends created content if you pick that as your option)
We'll here is how you block them....

Xbox Home > Privacy > Change Settings > Customize
Scroll down to Content tab
Click on Member Content
Choose either "Blocked" or "Friends Only" ( I chose friends only)
Hit Back > Save And Exit
The game will ask you to log out. Do so.
Log back in and you're good to go.


You'll never see any of those crappy deathmatches again.
When you log into GTA online it will give you an alert that user content has been blocked. Hit ok and sign in. Best thing since sliced bread

 

edit: Known issues and work-arounds:

1. Crew Tattoo/Clothing Logo's Dissapear - no fix for this.

2. Get stuck in loading animation going into Garage/Apt. if cars inside have Crew Logo's on them - simply disable blocked content, reload game, remove crew logo's from cars. enable block content again, reload game. should work now.

3. Cannot create playlists (Vital for Heads Up Crew vs Crew TDM) - have a friend create the playlist and send you an invite, then you can join, or disable blocked content. (edit: you can edit your existing playlists)

4. Cannot Alter Your Custom Created Jobs. - disable blocked content. re-enable when done.

5. Cannot join Custom map you want to play - add creator as friend.

6. Cannot Access in-game crew menu from the pause menu - use rockstar social club website.

and the obvious solution to any of this is to just go home, disable, then re-enable when needed. it takes no longer than 2 minutes to change and be back into the game.

No. It blocks "user created content". If it's content a friend created you can still play it. You can also play rockstar verified maps.

If it isn't verified you shall never see it again. No more 1000000rp, sh*tty custom maps, sky high melee stupid matches ect.

This is the holy grail my fellows

What else does it block - besides the fake deathmatches?

ALOT OF MONEY TO RACE or pretty much any other race around the map.

I guess same for races created by users that you don't want to play.

Otherwise it doesn't block anything you'd need

Great find, OP.  Definitely gonna try this.  It's not just those rigged DMs that are the problem, but the stupid troll races... and even the "honest" ones that are nothing but ramps and ramps and more ramps...

 

A feature I'd really love to see them implement, that I think would solve so many people's problems, is the ability to blacklist any job or mission (even the R* created ones) so that you're never put into it again.  It'd let the people who wanna grind RR do their thing, and the people like me who are sick to death of it never have to see it anymore...

Make sure you choose friends only option. That seems like the best option. Otherwise it will block access to the creator.

No it specifically blocks user created deathmatches and races by people who aren't on your friends list. Ie getting tossed into 1000000rp 5 times in a row when tryna to get into a quick DM from your phone
Please don't let this thread fall victim to the 10000 glitch threads. I feel this benefits us so much more

Its not worth it. You will be blocking yourself from joining even if you want and from the good ones. I believe it also might disallow you to make screenshots and your own custom content but that one may be age related as well. It also blocks ALL games, some might be crucial on created content.

Finally a thread that isn't comprised of people bragging about money glitching, or asking of theyre gonna get in trouble incriminating themselves and generally being stupid about something that does not need to be talked about so much.

You Sir...are a genius who deserves a Nobel Prize. On behalf of all the killers, rapists, psychos, madmen, maniacs, and generally bad people of Los Santos I'd like to thank you for making our life of sin much easier.

Your wrong sir.all it blocks is user created, non verified content ie deathmatches and races.

I've played a couple hours and everytime I hit quick DM I'm guaranteed a map I want to play.
This benefits all the people who've faced the same issues I've faced. Eliminates your down time looking for maps.

Guess you are mistaking what I mean will all games. All games as in you won't be able to play custom games in Halo or join a world in Minecraft. Not talking about GTA.

As a very active member of the creator community i thank you for spreading this information. like this, the people we don't need joining our jobs will actually keep themselves away. someone who is too lazy to actively find himself some quality jobs, only to then get on these here forums and bitch about the quality of matchmaking and custom content, someone like that will also not care to read the description of a job and therefor, for example, will .get stuck mid-race because he picked a Sanchez for a Sandking race. Then follows that one thing such people usually are never too lazy to do, which is to dislike your job. should you have the bad luck to get in to any kind of argument with someone like that, and be it that you just point out to them that the description clearly stated in BOLD AND ALL CAPS which vehicle(s) to use (just in case the title "Sandking your Sandking through Sandking Sandking Sandking" wasn't obvious enough), then you will often find out the next time you check your jobs that  a huge amount of dislikes has just materialized out of thin air. how such lazy, ignorant and petty pissants even have enough friends to pull off something like that is a book with seven seals to me.

The problem is that for every one person making decent content there are god knows how many making crap, tedious, time-wasting rubbish. Got stuck in a race yesterday for about 10 minutes because the creator had boxed everyone on a rooftop with a load of pixel perfect jumps needed to complete the race. You can't quit out if you don't want a bad sport warning, don't blame people for finding ways to avoid this crap. Blame the morons who keep making rubbish races and stupid death matches.

You could always change the settings to what OP suggested when you're about to play GTA, then switch 'em back once you're done if you're planning to play Halo or Minecraft later.  Pretty sure these changes aren't permanent, are they?  ( <- rhetorical question)

OP, you are now my favorite member. Thanks so much for this. I've been so frustrated trying to join real death matches and 4/5 it's "MEGA RP $1000000"

If we ever meet irl I'll buy you a case of beer or a bag of weed or whatever you like.

This is a good trick, rarely do I join a decent custom job that ain't made by a friend.
