I expected more from Rockstar...something so basic and EARLY AS POSSIBLE (not just early) as this.... Now, GTA V is fantastic, and I love Rockstar, but seriously...

 

Lol some of you kids are so f*cking annoying. How did some of you guys HONESTLY not see this coming even when Rockstar warned you?

 

Go to school and come back later tonight and it'll be working.

 

You're insulting me and calling me the kid? Classic.

 

Because adults have never been known to insult.

What kind of f*cking logic are you using?

 

I'd be happy to accept you're an immature adult in that case, buddy. People are complaining and they have a right to f*cking complain: an obvious issue is happening that Rockstar could have averted and it's inconvenienced people who were not only exited to play when available, they've been waiting for a long time.

 

Now, I'm fine with waiting, but Rockstar has disappointed us as they created a commitment which many people who're adults - requiring schedules to carefully plan their time - thought would be REASONABLY honored beyond standard excuses of, "We are sorry if the worst case scenario happens".

Let me tell you im off from work. I'm a grown adult and like i said before rockstar should have been ready for this situation. they had more than a whole month to fix the online component of the GTA online. Whether that means creating patches fixing bugs or increasing servers.

 

It's funny I never have any problems playing any Call of Duty game, joining a game if my connection is strong. Rockstar says they are launching a online game which 17 million people brought. ok so by that estimate that more than enough time to have enough servers ready. and They only launched for the XBOX! unbelievable.

 

C'mon I call it like i see it. rockstar dropped the ball.. they should have been ready.

You're a f*cking idiot. Is call of duty an open world game? NO. You call them like you see them huh? Problem is you don't KNOW sh*t. Go on Rockstars site and come back when you've read the blog about the online release. Rockstar was prepared for this and knew server problems would happen. There's only so much preparing you can do when they don't have experience In a launch of this scale. Grow the f*ck up and go back to work.

Open world, closed world. the release is sloppy... no need to call me a f*cking idiot. people who do big projects spends months on analysis, projections, estimates. they knew it was coming and yet was ill prepared. it still doesnt answer the question that the same amount of people who play COD on their servers have little to no problems on launch day, while Rockstar had a month plus in advance to take care of this...

Still stuck. Luckily I'm away for a few days from Thursday so by the time I come back it should be working.... hopefully.

 

Rockstar should have seen this coming a mile off. They said they underestimated how big it was gonna be? It's GTA 5! Of course it was gonna be huge at release. They were naive.

To do a solo session, got to "play gta online now" under the online section. Seperate menu pops up and solo session is on the bottom

They knew the servers would experience much pressure - why not prepare for it? It's like knowing a DDoS will happen to a websnite and doing nothing...when it's a special anniversary day of the site, except...this is the launch..where first impressions happen.

Actually, the server load has exceeded their expectations. More people bought the game in the first three days than they expected in the first three months. They're having to buy new servers and get everything working on a much larger scale than they ever expected. They're probably completely overwhelmed at this point. Not to mention that this is the first time rockstar has done any online mmo game of this magnitude before. I'm sure they'll get it all figured out and catch up to the demand soon.

You can not expect Rock star to be able to be 100% ready for everyone to be on at the same time. Especially when they already spent large amounts of money on the game. In order to put the amount in perspective, metro.us says that GTA V is the most expensive game to create of all time. Knowing this you can have some empathy because it must be hard enough to deal with as it is without all of us breathing down there neck.

Saaame. "Loading session". If I restart the game will I lose my character that I just made, or will it start me at the first race and try to log me into a different session?

No. It'll start you on this race that won't load again.

 

its deleted my character twice and i cant start the mission..it tells me to do it but there is no marker to stand in...fu cockstar

Well that actually makes sense. Also, from the movie before the loading screen and character creation, online play looks like it will be awesome. Sports will still be very lame though.

Over 14 hours and this problem is still happening. They better be working overnight...

 

I understand they have a lot of bugs due to the size of the game and the complexity of thousands using GTAO, but c'mon, the first mission, really? And they don't even allow you to go exploring, rather your character is stuck in a segment where you have to complete this to play the game.

lol I still can't even do the first race, solo session gives me "Failed to start activity" as soon as that guy drives up to me in a car and trying to do an online race doesn't even let me get that far, tells me it couldn't connect to online and boots me back to SP.

 

I think they made a bad choice having even solo sessions run off their servers, because now people can't even play alone due to the immense strain being put on them. I'd at least like to roam around by myself to see what all (if anything) is changed in MP but I can't get past the race to even do that.

I just gave it a go before I headed to work and got in. Looks like they've made a change to the first mission as it no longer says 1-8 but 1-2. Just in case, I've left my character in stealth and passive mode and on a roof. He should be safe until lunch.

How to fix First Race Bug on Xbox 360.
1. start game in story mode.
2. launch online mode under solo mission mode.
3. save game using cloud storage.
4. Enjoy GTAO
5. Some online missions may still be bugged for those you will have to wait for RG to fix but at least you get to play with your friends. I personally haven't experienced this my friends have been complaining about missions failing as soon as they accept them.
Note: If game freezes after completing the race (which you will know after you are asked to press continue and a orange spiral spins for 5 seconds and disappears then all you hear is traffic noises) restart your game.
When you go back into online mode you will be on the next part of the mission where you meet up with Lamar again.
Note:(This is only if your game freezes after during the start of the race again) Delete your character then repeat steps 1-3. This has worked for me and 10 of my friends so far.
