<snipped some more>
I have to concur with another post, previously - if blowing up PVs is so "bad," then why include a Tank, Buzzard, Jet, RPG, Grenade Launcher, grenades, or sticky bums in a game where 99.753% of the time players spend in it are in vehicles?
Should we all be running around on foot, blowing each other up with rockets instead of Assault Rifles?
Rockstar designed the game like this. Not sure why players are "punished" by being segregated into a separate culture and lobby until they are <ugh> "forgiven."
I would assume they were put in for missions, DMs and such. FR wasn't meant to be a warzone. Originally it was supposed to a refit and arm place. Like most companies, R* underestimated the player. If you don't like being in the BS lobbies then stop blowing up so many PVs. It's not that hard
I appreciate the reply, but I guess I just don't buy that "they were put in for missions." If that were the case, we'd have the option to buy monkeys and call in Alien Air Strikes. LOL!
Also, I don't support the "Rockstar underestimated" perspective, as GTA4's "free roam" was total war zone mayhem, chock full o' cheaters, modders, hacks, and morons (o' my!), just like Bad Sport has become in GTAV.
I'm not bashing Rockstar, but they obviously know what they're doing; there's a method to their madness. My guess is more about micro-transactions and not blowing up PVs.
For me, I can't believe I've blown up that many PVs and I buy cash cards when I run out of GTA$ - I don't cheat or glitch (too old to bother!), so I know it's nothing to do with that.
Just saying is all.
