Parachute Glitch Removed [ WHY? :( ]

Recommended Posts

TGMOS

 

I'm glad that silly glitch is gone.  It made free mode a bit too ghey.  I can't tell you how many times I've gotten into a free mode game and nearly every person in the game is flying around.  GHEY!  It had turned Liberty City into Candy Land. 

 

Liberty City is all about killing, maiming, detonating, annihilating, buzzarding, etc.  Rockstar's correction of this will, I believe, help extend the life of TBoGT's Multiplayer.

From the people I've talked to in freemode, removing this glitch has caused many people to be very angry with R*, and as a result, it will not extend the life of TBOGT multiplayer, but shorten it. Heck, some people who play this game all the time will be moving on to something else the instant something with more fun and freedom is released.

 

The parachute glitch, in my mind, besides being able to go inside Bahama Mama's and Brucie's garage, was the only thing tying me and others to its freemode rather than the original or TLAD. What with the APC and all the heliwhores flying about in the buzzards getting cheap kills, it's enough to make people get sick of freemode.

 

Removing the parachute glitch, now the only true safe haven (as they removed the under the map glitch), and they again remove that. Therefore, it's just a smart idea to migrate back to TLAD or original freemode to avoid frustration.

 

For you to think the parachute glitch made freemode 'ghey', and not the buzzards and APC's, must mean that you can only use said means to kill people and they used said glitch to escape.

 

Freemode is not always about 'KILL KILL KILL!!!' That's what they created deathmatch for. Sure, you CAN kill people, but there's more to it. If there wasn't, then it wouldn't be freemode. Killing people is an enjoyable experience in freemode but not the only option. Not everyone seems to realize that.

 

tl;dr: Removing the parachute glitch has had more negative consequences than there were before it was removed.

While some have suggested a boycott, I don't really think that people will stop playing. They will be a bit dissatisfied, though, and I can see where they're coming from. But in the end, it's R* who makes the decision. Pity. I wonder how it would be if they made it an ascended glitch?

oh, another lecture about how to play the game. joy. if you want to play pretend in free mode then, hey, that's cool. I do it sometimes too just testing the model to see what it will tolerate.

 

maybe the glitch may come back if enough of you complain. ?

 

If free mode is going to lose players that simply want to glide around the map the majority of the time then I won't miss them. 95% of the FM games I join are a war zone and not Candy Land. But, if you want Candy Land you do realize that you can create your own game with like-minded friends and kick any outside antagonists, right?

 

I understand your frustration with the helicopters. I felt the same way at first, even posted on here about it. I longed for the old days (or last summer) of full TLAD games where only mavericks filled the skies (cops off) and the most precise airborne weapon available was dropping pipe bombs from the Maverick. However, I eventually learned how to play the helicopter game, how to play cat and mouse in tight alleys and under bridges, how to lure a foolish pilot to hover low enough in an effort to shoot me under the bridge so I can detonate a couple of sticky bombs under him, etc. And yes, sometimes I'm in the annihilator flying around, training my cross hairs on unsuspecting ground targets and roasting them in the most efficient and surgical manner possible. Rockstar placed those attack helicopters in the game for a reason. There's a place for airborne villains in LC just as there are ways to operate around them. It is a reasonable argument that perhaps Rockstar, with TBoGT being Algonquin focused, prolly wanted to influence FM game play to be in Algonquin, which is the best Island to be on for evading the attack helis b/c of the tall buildings. Now that I have accepted this I can say that TBoGT FM is pretty rad. Using helis in DM would be silly b/c the scoring is based on $$ picked up after each kill.

 

But, hey, if more people go back to TLAD Free Mode then that'll be great. TLAD was my favorite. inlove.gif

He he, I wouldn't be that assumptive.

 

 

Free mode is free of a time limit, free of a score, and free of any rules, free to be interpreted however by whomever.

 

Rockstar is free to fix the game to make it run the way they originally intended.

 

 

I never debated their right, you understand, rather the point that people flying around constantly in Free Mode contradicts the ideal of Free Mode, which it doesn't, really; for as you testified earlier on that it's free to be interpreted however each player wants.

 

Of course, I'm not in R*'s head, so I wouldn't really know their thinking. They could be thinking about how to implement flaming machine gun refrigerators that spew laser-guided death, or how to implement teddy-bears. If I was in their heads, I'd manipulate them into adding "The Ballad of Black Dynamite" as a third DLC Episode.

 

And my Bridge Brand™ Captain Obvious Tutelage™ course is still available for $39.99 per lesson! Learn things you already knew! Solidify the facts you've learnt since playing the game! Give me money so the repo-man stays the hell away from my stuff!

 

 

 

...I'm serious, take the damn lessons! I BEG OF YOU!

That I can agree on. icon14.gif

 

And there are some people who are actually boycotting the game because of that very reason? That's just plain stupid, even for people who hated the fact that the glitch was removed. I'd laugh my face off if that was the reason why they stopped playing TBoGT.

I have to concur about the overreactions. It's hardly worth a Rosa Parks-esque attempt to show the plight of the "wronged".

Its just pure lazy incompetence. They've fixed the easiest thing possible. Anyone who didn't like the parachute glitch doesn't deserve to play the game. Its all the pilot losers that have complained. Why not fix all the wall breaches and take that sh*tty non-explosive AA-12 out the episodic weapons type. Maybe even put an admin on a server once in a while to kick all the abusive morons.

 

The thing that pisses me off the most is that I was really good at parachute glitching and it was like another skill, like being a good driver, shooter, pilot etc.

 

Get your act together please Rockstar, do some market research and sack some motherf*ckers.

 

I'm gonna start a petition and get it back... monocle.gif

No, it's all the people who suck so bad at this game that they have to resort to glitches to actually be half decent that have complained about it being gone. How is not liking an unfair glitch make you undeserving to play? If anything, it's the other way around.

Well I thought it was really fun. On free mode the stunts you could do were endless as you get a fresh parachute as soon as you land and being able to sniper then relocate to ANY other spot was one of my favourite things to do on multiplayer. I only used it on free mode and i'm sure others did the same, such a shame.

Yeah right others only used it on free mode, it was a glitch and some n00b skillless cretin would of used it in other modes go again an unfair advantage over other players. Rockstar made a right decision and clearly there was demand for it as was already said.

 

You're just pissed because they took away your only way to win a game. Want to fly high? Use a helicopter...

oh si si, Liberty City is a dangerous place. Keep in mind of the helicopter at the fire station on the southern part of the Alderney's western shore. most seem to forget that annihilator is there and I rarely encounter trouble when going for it.

You god damn right. I can't tell you how many times those heli whores come into FM and just go around thinking its cool to spam buzzard rockets everywhere. But when they can't reach someone in a parachute they start acting like babies, as if blowing up EVERYONE repeatedly aint enough.

It's Liberty M.F. City, bro! What do you expect?!? Learn to fly and/or how to elude the helis (imagine that). But, even if you learn either of those tasks and learn them well, guess what? Sometimes you're still going to get smoked by a heli! I'll bet that's what the developers had in mind. Now, that parac*nt glitch, not so much.

I know how to elude helis, hell I can even snipe heli pilots (especially pilots in buzzards) but that's not the point. You're one of the people I'm talking about if you're responding to me like that; defending heli whores. You annoy people by raining rockets on them, but get annoyed when you can't reach them (btw, parachute glitch isn't the only glitch to get away from helis). Raining rockets doesn't take skill so don't toot your horn.

 

I think a much better thing to do would've been to put a "death height" boundary, exactly like when you try to fly out of liberty city you get a message telling you to "turn around" and if you keep going, your vehicle explodes and you die. This way, parachuters can't escape up, but they can still do the glitch within the city limits.

But oh well, I got over it, I'm still enjoying FM. I think most people will too and stop with the "petition" bull crap.

I rarely fly a buzzard, and when I do I usually fly straight to an annihilator. So I'm not one of your rocket firing evil guys. I fly the annihilator specifically so that I can outrun the rocket tards!

 

ammunition in the helis should be finite just like with every other weapon in the game. that's where R* went wrong, my friend. It's as if the game came with the infinite ammo cheat engaged for just the attack helicopters. ridiculous!

Well i hate to be the porcupine at this balloon party, but like it is referred to as: it is a glitch. Even tho I'm sure about 99.9% of players enjoy it, it's still a flaw, and Im pretty sure the developers couldnt live with that (Even tho there are plenty of glitches in multiplayer still to be fixed dozingoff.gif ...)

I agree. I glitch is a glitch. Even if 90% of gamers use it for fun, that 10% of gamers who use it to their advantage can wreck games - it is understandable why R* has removed it.

 

HOWEVER, I think it was a most stupid idea of R* to remove blips! What did they ever do that for?

Also, a view i have on it is that the glitch was taking away some of the props that R* and some guys that worked on the parachutes should have... I mean, some people used the glitch Everytime they were parachuting, so, my idea is that they don't really appreciate the parachutes for what they were and what they actually did... And there was alot of people that worked hard on the parachutes i bet... How would you feel if you worked a year on something and then people liked it for a bit, until they found out a problem with them that made it possible to do something else with them...

 

Also, i think the parachute glitch made people forget and not appreciate the altitude difference as much... It's doubled up damnit.... But with the glitch i think alot of people just said myeah but with my parachute i can go higher so who cares... i wouldn't have needed the altitude gain because i have my glitched parachute...

 

 

Just get over it... It is a glitch and like i've said before, asking for anybody to put a glitch back in a game on purpose is just stupid.

Well...I think you need to learn about

.

 

Basically, after an update was released, the announcer would repeatedly state "OVERTIME" whenever the game went into Overtime. Now, this was a glitch, yes, but it was loved by the playerbase so much that Valve went and put the glitch in as a server option; in essence, it ascended to a level of "Throw It In" by the company.

 

I'm not saying that the glitch should be included back in the game, nor am I advocating or participating in a boycott; I'm simply saying that while Valve and R* are two different companies, it isn't impossible for a glitch to be included in the game if it's loved by the player base so much. I mean, it only makes senOVERTIMEOVERTIMEOVER-OVERTIMEOVERTIME
