You can thank the player base who keeps breaking the game repeatedly for delaying any DLC content. There's only so many people doing so much work at once, I'm sure all of it is on hold while they try to iron out the entire game.
Sales expectations were blown away in three days so they had to focus on stability of servers since two weeks to overhaul everything for millions more potential players than expected
Then the bugs involving clouds and saves.
Then the glitches. Oh god the glitches that threw their entire in game economy off kilter.
The fact players are already max level from grinding.
And I'm sure systems like Bad Sport not exactly functioning as intended and likely more than 2/3rds of the content being ignored because its not fun/pretty useless
I'd reckon to say the game didn't have a very smooth launch and there's only so much work people can do in one month. The GTAO team isn't the GTAV team, and just cause the game sold 29 million doesn't mean they can just shove money into a computer and fix the problems.
If y'all ain't happy quit and come back. You
A) didn't pay for GTA:O
b) dont have to pay for GTA:O
c) will be getting GTA:O content for free if you play or not
d) won't lose anything if you simply come back in a few months
You paid $60 and got an amazing game in GTAV that I'm sure everyonehere has at least 60+ hours in. You got your moneys worth. There's tons of other great games and new systems around the corner. Quit demanding the impossible and go do something else with your time if you ain't happy with the quality of a brand new free to play game, cause jokes on you if you hate it, complain about it, and play anyway.
GTAO encourages PvP and combat. It ISNT however just an excuse to go around annihilating everything, like most of the asshole players seem to think. This is why there's deathmatch and a number of modes that dont involve killing other players. This is why you get bonuses for playing as groups and its so easy to join crews and play with other people. Yes, its a shooting game. Yes, its GTA. And yes, youre missing the entire f*cking point of playing an open world online game if literally all you want to do is sit in one 2 block area shooting the same person over and over and over and ya damn skippy I'm not gonna enjoy my gaming time being eaten up by some dicksh*tting faggot kid who thinks he's a bona fide eThug that wants to sit over me in a tank he abused glitches to get.
If you want a console game where you can kill things endlessly, you can get COD: World at War for mad cheap and play zombies until your f*cking eyes bleed. If you want to learn what the term "multiplayer game" means, you can grow the f*ck up and play a game the way the developers intended.
People play this way to be assholes. Its because they are making someone mad on the other end. If that wasn't the case, they'd be playing in single player mowing down civilians.
Edit: I mean seriously this is a website called "grand theft auto forums" for a game called "grand theft auto" which is a felony and agame with very adult content yet the word "f*ck" is censored. I would think that would help get the point across that just because its a game about crime doesn't mean its a game where youre supposed to cheat and act like king sh*thead the third.
1) they happen way too often. I think it got turned down a little recently but still, it happens A LOT. Very disrupting for the player attempting to do his own thing for a minute and needs to acquire a vehicle.
2) no one likes getting killed. Its even worse when the bounty collector doesn't go away. I had asked a crew mate to help me witha stunt jump iI couldn't figure out, and in the process of getting to me he got a bounty of $1k. Two morons followed him across the map, into me and 3 other crew mates who proceeded to slaughter them over and over because they wouldn't go away and I just wanted to hit this one silly jump. The end result was they kicked the guy with the bounty from the session and quit.
Impromptu content and conflict can be awesome but having it shoved on to people when its not welcome simply encourages NON interaction, and playing in solo games.....which defeats the purpose.
If anything the bounty system needs to be reworked to give the victim RP bonuses for fending off attackers based on the bounty cost, so you have more of an incentive/reason to just live with the bounty.
They just spawn where it fits.. And their cars is the best cars ever- when I drive on the high way with my fully modded Coquette, they catch up on me and bumps me so hard sometimes that my car spin. BUT!! When I steal a cop car, it's just a medium/slow car..
they do have a bit of a hard time keeping up with my upgraded f620
Sometimes they can't keep pace
Sometimes they have jet engines
Its random when they want to be a real pain in the ass.
When the game is good, its great. Its early, it will get fixes, things will be adjusted, it will eventually end up on next gen. If idiots want to quit, more power to them. I'll be playing those new games and GTA:O at the same time cause hey, I don't have to devote my life to one or the other....GTA:O is going to be able to be a fun diversion that will improve over time.
Personally I hope all the trigger happy morons leave for the next whatever, thin out the players and maybe free roam will see people doing things OTHER than just kill on sight. Like.....the hundreds of markers on the map full of activities.
I use free aim for one reason:
You can't switch between assisted and free lobbies at will, you have to quit, change, restart.
Assisted aim lobbies are nightmares to me. I greatly disapprove of being sniped out of 200 mph cars that are airborne or out of helicopters making a strafing run or whatever by whoever using a pistol.
Auto aim is pretty necessary against the AI considering how insane it is, but it makes PvP a joke. Who f*cks up and leaves cover first? Who taps up on their stick quicker for the headshot? Dont notice another player? Well, usually you could maybe bet on him missing, but not anymore.
So I suffer through survival and jobs with free aim just so free roam is way more level. If someone smokes me in free aim it means he is a better shot than I am, period. Dot. End of story.
