"1.16 is a fail!"
 
"THIS UPDATE SUCKS!"
 
"This is the worst dlc ever put out"
 
 
Are just a few of the comments i've seen over Facebook, Twitter and of course these forums on the topic of the new DLC. In response, I've seen alot of self-proclaimed smart-arses replying with 'your complaining about free dlc' 'boohoo virtual ingame items weren't what you like big deal' and the like, all flaring up a massive debate over what really could easily be avoided with one simple change.
 
On the R* Social Club, Xbox Live Gamestore/anywhere where a list of DLC is offically available/ the first post about a DLC, add a small tag on the end denoting a [Small], [Medium] or [Large] content package based on the precise number of vehicles/weapons/aircraft/clothes have been added (Bug Fixes/Gameplay changes don't count)
 
This would:
 
Reduce confusion and speculation of what it actually contained by having a precise numerical count of all the items being the only contribution to the tag size
 
Enable players to know what to expect from the Downloadable content and pretty much wholly avoid all the hate from not getting what people expected from the 100% confurmed domisgay leek
 
Reduce overall disappointment (even if people were disappointed with a small size DLC already, atleast their disappointment wouldn't be a slamming reality that the so-epic trailer promised so little) thanks to a prior knowledge of what to expect
 
Even if R* lost out alittle on the excitement factor of a new DLC, they would be gaining, even if only a little consumer trust for being straight-up honest about the content they were about to release that would continually grow with each use of the tag system per DLC release. Even as R* has acted per release and just downright ignored any criticism regarding the quality of the content produced (usually only partially listening to gameplay complaints), the whole community would I think be a whole lot less anti rokstur every time something new to witch hunt on is available due to the easy ways (including this one) that the company could build up consumer trust even by continually ignoring Heist/payout complaints; because really, they are a pretty clever bunch aren't they?

I'm pretty sure why the DLC sucks is because people have their expectations up too high.

Exactly. This system would prevent, or reduce disappointment due to this system.

Or they could stop putting NPC models in their trailers, Only put DLC clothing on models, And remove effects that aren't included in the DLC.

Majority of players unhappy with this update will get over it. However, if R* can't figure out this freezing issue, then they deserve any and all hate that they get. That's like game design 101. Don't have your game freeze every 10 minutes.

Blame youtubers! They always bring up the hype like saying "hydra in 1.16!! The source code confirms it!" And when really it's just a random file on word but people will believe anything they see on YouTube!

This wouldn't solve anything. People would just have an opportunity to complain about the DLC before they'd even downloaded it.

 

"another small update, GAY"

 

"more content packs, R* are the worst company in the history of time"

 

etc

Updates are not dlc

cut content is not dlc

Say for example you bought a car, brand new from the dealership. Before buying the car you asked, "does it have heated seats?" To which the salesman replies "ofc it does!"

So you happily purchase your brand new car with your hard earned money that you saved up so long for only to find out that the dirty salesman lied to you.. 

so what do you do? You go back and question him about the seats. So let's also say that he told you to come back in a week and they would install the seats for you free of charge. A week goes by and he tells you the seats still aren't in and to come back next week. This goes on for a few months before they FINALLY get them in and remind you of how they'll install them free of charge. So at the point, you as the dumbass customer as happy as sh*t to have finally gotten your free heated seats installed free of charge.

that or as soon as you realize you got lied to, you take the car back to rip that salesman a new asshole for not having a feature you specifically wanted to finalize the purchase.

I know the grammar is brutal but I hope I got my point across

Why they even bothered making a trailer for this one is what I want to know. It's nothing special at all. I still don't understand why a Hunter hasn't been included when it was clearly shown during an in-game movie trailer.

Im REALLY beginning to slowly hate most of the GTA community because the majority are just so damn ungrateful & spoiled. But its good to atleast see those on here and in game who are appreciative enough that R* gave us so much free sh*t that we could've end up paying out the ass for.

Updates are not DLC? It's Downloadable Content for the game that adds Vehicles AS content. This tag system only acts as more clarification to help to cull the flow of hate that pollutes the GTA Online 'community'

rockstar doesn't care about you or your family.
relax.
Use normal font size like the rest of us.
this game is broken.

cut content is being trickled to us in little bits and those of you who don't think outside of the box very often, it's not free. It was there originally and then got taken away, only to be released in very little packs to expand the life of the game. None of this was free. It was all prepaid for when you purchased the game.

its becomes dlc one you have to download it

Downloadable CONTENT, its origins are a non issue, weather its was cut or otherwise

 

you cant compare something as complex as heists to heated seats dude

it will come, be patient

 

the ones shouting about heists the most are the ones who probably don't even like this game that much

which is why they are constantly looking for something new


Im REAY beginning to slowly hate most of the GTA community because the majority are just so damn ungrateful & spoiled. But its good to atleast see those on here and in game who are appreciative enough that R* gave us so much free sh*t that we could've end up paying out the ass for.

Thank You, wish I could split up the community between the haters and actual grateful people

they should make you pay for the next one, that would fix you whiney little crybabys who think youre entitled to anything from them after the original purchase.   consider yourselves lucky as most game companies wouldnt be giving you assclowns anything new for free.  f*ck, EA even makes you pay for bug fix patches cause they add a couple new maps and call them expansion packs, damn you kids today are gonna have lots of issues later in life when you no longer get your participation trophies and are judged on your actual ability, lol!

Excitement factor? 

Maybe there would have been some actual excitement if they'd actually put some content into the update and announced it sooner than literally the day before release..
