This situation annoys me immensely, I already quit prior to Smuggler's Run due to the fact they didn't follow through with the 200k they promised for anyone that subscribed to their Newsletter before July 4th. Then the trailer came out and I was really excited for the Hunter, and with the 2x I/E sales at the time I had to jump on the chance. I managed to grind 1.1 mil and stopped for the day. The next day I wanted to grind some more, but was greeted with the ever so pleasant message that my account was "adjusted" by -2.7mil. I just about quit then and there, I didn't even have enough money to buy the Hangar I was eyeing.

 

It really felt like it was a "fool me once, shame on you, fool me twice, shame on me" situation. I felt like an idiot for coming back and wasting time grinding the 2x I/E sales.

I did the same thing just last night.  It's really overwhelming the amount of stuff you can do. It's definitely better. It's not like Rockstar cares about anyone, even people who buy shark cards they treat like the enemy.

quick off topic question. is the GTAO content available in FiveM? or is it just the map and then whatever mods you add yourself?

Yes, you can add all apartments, offices or vehicles to your server. You can install scripts like los santos customs, barber/clothes/food shops. I even added a lot more apartments and houses you usually cannot buy in gta online. Its limitless. And if you add mods to your server, the players who join your server don't have to install anything, they just stream the content.

You only install the FiveM client on your pc (outside of your gta installation). All mods are installed server-side. Your GTA folder stays untouched.

Holy sh*t, exept that they removed 4,7 Million on my side, this is the exactly (word for word) same case that happened to me.
I saw the trailer, got excited for the hunter, made 1,1 Million with I/E and got the money removed the next day. What a crazy coincidence.

I played a bit on some FiveM servers, the only thing I really appreciated("I played a bit" remember) was the no-radar-blips. Gamertags were way smaller too, a little more immersive in comparison to GTAO. A 32 players session with no blips!

 

However, the jobs were terrible, like farmers, I did it like 10 min, and said to myself "what I'm doing here?" It was 10 min super grindy, I'd to harvest some wheat, I earned like $1732. 

 

Many servers feature the possibility to be weed farmer or meth dealer, taxi...etc, its illegal jobs vs legal jobs, stuff like that.

Do solo sessions work there?

I'm very affraid R* will whipe money again once this stupid and boring DLC is almost on its end.

I think's it better to buy some really most expensive airplanes now and sell them once the new DLC has dropped to get some money.

Damn it! R* can be very cancerous at times when it comes to this f*cking joke!

I'm waiting for next money-theft just before December DLC, but of sure I won't buy any expensive sh*tty thing only to "save" as much as possible. They took my money before Smuggler Run, ok. I said hello to most of its content and kept playing with my own things. Now I'm saving money for next dlc (well, nothing if compared to my bank account before Smuggler Run, but amen). Let's see what is going to happen this time.

If you want to invest in vehicle bonds don't do it with planes. You get a bigger % from selling cars then airplanes.

The worst thing is by now R* at many levels is aware of this... still no official word, still no apology or explanation.

 

Do you think they learned what went wrong..or care?

We're probably considered acceptable losses. As vocal as we've been here and on their Support page, we still (probably) make a minority of the active current user base.

 

*EDIT*
Not to mention not everyone hit by this has quit outright, so on paper it's probably only a relatively tiny portion of users less logging in to play. Not berating people who've resumed playing after being wiped, just saying statistics wise in regards to active players we probably haven't made a dent.

no fite pls

Agreed. In which case, RDR2 and GTAVI are acceptable losses for me. I just can't deal with R*'s lies anymore. GTAVI is probably gonna be infested with loot crates anyway.

 

What's that old cliche again? "I love you, but I hate what you've become"?

Yeah thats probably the truth. However if you dont buy sharkcards you are no loss for them. I mean Strauss Zelnic basicly called us freeloaders a few month ago so i have my doubts that we are worth nothing for them.

Hmm, that reminds me that this song is appropriate for the situation right now:
 

 

"Lately life with you has been unbearable,

All my faith in you has gone and I know it won't return"

 

"...Now you've gotten me hatin' things I used to love to do.
And it won't be long, and I'll be hatin' you."

 

I find it funny a song featured in the game pretty much says what's on my mind.

Pretty much sums up how I feel about GTA online too. Wish it wasn't so but Rockstar is to blame for it. I wonder if they realize how many players they have alienated since Gunrunning came out?
