I hate when people ignore the game's numerous problems as "whinning".
Jets aren't that OP. I've only ever had one time where a jet was a massive issue and that was due to a) the location I was and b) the jet pilot's skill level. Now, I get to spawn a jet close by, I can take to the skies and use the same OP vehicle to deal with the OP vehicle.
Dude, really? Jets are the most overpowered vehicle in the game, the only people who think otherwise are jet griefers and I think that's it, really. There's hundreds of complaints about its explosive cannons everywhere, the countermeasures released to "counter" them are useless (Homing Launcher) or overpowered in their own (explosive rounds). Of all the new planes added to the game, only the Rogue can barely stand a chance and only because it can be equipped with explosive rounds ironically.
Also releasing OP things to counter OP things is an awful way to nerf things. We wanted the Hydra's explosive cannons removed, not giving players a hitscan sniper rocket launcher.
The game continues to function perfectly fine for the majority.
If it was that bad, selling in any public session would not be possible without having it destroyed, this is not the case.
The game only works perfectly for griefers, trolls, PvP tryhard and whales.
People that want to grind, want to play in peace or want more PvE content are f*cked over in a daily basis.
And while not impossible, is too damn hard to sell in a lobby when bullsh*t mechanics like the global signal exist in the first place.
There are no vehicles or weapons which are so overpowered that they cause you to have to use passive, passive is an easy answer to the problem but not the only one.
Wrong. There are myriads of overpowered vehicles, Kuruma? Hydra? Insurgent? APC? Oppressor? Way too many OP vehicles when I can only use a sh*tty Dodo or Post Op van to make a sale.
Public sessions are barely toxic. There are a huge number of friendly small sessions, there are large sessions where people may not be so friendly but are pre-occupied with other people that they don't give you a second look.
Really? Almost all the sessions I end up are full of griefers, trolls, tryhards, squeakers, racial and homophobic slurs and many horrid things. I heard things about LoL and CS:GO communities but GTA Online takes the cake in the "Worst Game Community ever".
While both complaints may be legitimate, they do not warrant the level of whining that is seen on the forums. multiple topics all focusing on the same subject matter, all live at the same time with the same whining and complaints from the same people. THAT is what I am talking about.
And yet agaik you're complaing about people complaining. And I'm complaining about you complaining about people complaining. And you will probably complain about me complaining about you complaining about people complaining and so on...
Also you're right, we don't whine enough to make R* notice our rightful complaints. Unlike you, we want a better, more fun and fair game.
As for being unable to go passive, you clearly started an activity which has some part of it PvP. Perhaps if you cannot deal with the PvP in GTA you should stay away from such activities rather than bitch and whine about how you are unable to counter some attacks (cough, explosive sniper, sneeze, fart)
But "muh PvP" It's only forced PvP to sell Shark Cards. Is that simple, really.
The PvP in GTA Online is utterly broken and unbalanced to deal with, why bother?
Lol the explosive sniper solved a problem and created ten more.
