Online has been out 9 days and theres players already past lvl 100.. if you consider GTA:O to be a kind of MMO it will possibly hve the shortest life span in existence.. due to farming. considering that R* have long term plans and updates in mind for the game, if things carried on like they are now who would be around to play them.
R* could have made online a subscription based service and still would have made more money than they will likely get from microtransactions, they arent a shortcut by any means as you gain no RP and cant buy higher end stuff anyway.. and when you do manage to unlock them you will probably have a nice chunk of cash from doing the missions anyway.
And for the people that keep saying there nerfing this and that and not fixing the other more serious issues such as character deleting and other glitches because they only want their hands in your wallet.. changing the parameters of a mission takes very little effort compared to tracking the causes of a glitch be it in the programming or their network infrastructure.
then theres the yet to be determined factor of the Heists i.e, the payout, the level required, will job points factor into it (they do nothing else!) people buying the cards wont gain any of that.
The game has been out for little over a week calm your tits and see how it pans out before jumping up and down and throwing your faeces all over the place, or you know just stop playing the game instead of complaining about it.
Call me a rockstar fanboy if you like but forming such strong opinions and hatred based on very little facts is just not all that wise.
