So players farming apparently ruins the game 'economy', but giving everyone 500k is ok ? Lol.

 

Won't be long before this forum is full of people moaning that new players don't deserve it and it's 'not fair'....

Rockstar: "Hey, we will be giving away $500 000 free money in GTA like everyone wanted! This is for all the technical difficulties we had in the first days!"

 

99% of the GTA Community: *moaning noises* "Noooo we want a rollback, all farmers have more money than I do! I can not live knowing someone has more money or is higher levelled than me!" *moans continue*

 

/rant end

This was my first true rant by the way. :p

 

...Meh.

 

The so called GTA community aren`t complaining about farmers because they really don't care. Not sure where 99% came from.

 

Complainers make up a very small percent. Might as well say 5%.

So, instead of fixing the economy their answer is to print more money?

 

Makes sense. :facedesk:

I'm making $500k in 2 hours


I don't want R* to mess with my bank account, they could break something.


Just leave it as it is.


Don't do more damages.

Nice enough gesture I guess. Economy is out of whack as it is so the fact this might make it that tiny bit worse is immaterial.

 

I have no problem with the farmers but frankly, they don't need this. I doubt it would have been that hard to look at people's playing time and level and figure out who hasn't farmed/exploited (whatever the in-phrase is right now) and maybe even who has had issues with character loss (long playing time but low level? I don't know). Give them the cash. The farmers don't need it, and those like me who have been lucky enough to play without problems don't need it, I'm enjoying earning the money the way R* intended, I don't personally want or need a freebie. I'll spend it on hospital bills.

 

Side note, if there's a patch that is going to fix the last of the problems, why do people logging in to GTAO after this date need this money? If it's a gesture because of the issues some people have had to cope with from release date through till now, those after this date don't need it. Again, I feel they've made this decision too quickly. I know how I enjoy my games, if I logged in for the first time tomorrow, with no issues, I'd want to enjoy the game as intended, don't give me free money.

Cool. I will not be buying the 400K house though. The cheapest 10 car garage is fine with me.

 

Trust me, it'd blow your mind just how worth it that view is. I can sit on top of the world and watch everyone blow each other up in comfort and safety.

Quite genius really on Rockstar's part. This can potentially increase sales becaue people who were on the fence about GTA V can now get $500k right off the bat, as long as its purchased and played this month. They appease the fans who dealt with the days of not getting online. They appease those who continued to work hard and not exploit a system that needed work. And they piss off the ones who did exploit because well, their money means practically little at this point to them anyways and they get nothing for the efforts. Kudos to Rockstar

stop calling them farmers, farmers are respectful people. Call them pheggits, cos that is what they are.

Pretty sure Rockstar knows who the farmers are. They banned a lot of people from Red Dead for exploits. Hope to see them remove the farmers from this game.

 

The main reason it isn't fair is billionaires can flood the stock market causing prices to fluctuate heavily. If you'd play the game "correctly" you wouldn't gain money quite as fast and the market remains intact.

 

Why else would RockStar give the $500k in two payments of $250k... to keep people from becoming too rich too fast like here in America.

Thats a bit too much for my liking.

I think they should give out 50-100k instead.

 

Once you have 500k, you can buy an apartment, a couple of tuned vehicles

and whatever weapons.

So then what is left to try and aim for?

what is there left to do?

nobody cares about the more expensive apartments,

there's no point having a garage full of 10 or so tuned vehicles,

and any weapon in the game is viable.

So for me, might as well say Gta: online: completed. Next

 

There a complete and utter lack of things to achieve and do.

it's obvious why R* slowed the progression down.

It's a lame idea really. So basically they're giving us all $500k meaning there's nothing really left to work towards except ranking up.

 

I appreciate the gesture, but 50-100k would have been better !

I can use it, thx R* (and I must say, well played)!

 

..... and, predictably, the vocal "we're morally superior" crowd moans and cries, "foul!". OMG even the evil farming "exploiters", too!

 

R* = We consider them customers, too.

Unfair ? when i read people complaining about farmers, it's like you are talking about glitchers / hackers / criminals ....

 

That's a nice move from R* specially for these who lost characters

 

Shut your whore mouths, c*nts.Khaos89 is just a terrible player is all guys. He has to make excuses constantly about why he's so sh*tty at everything he does. Don't pick on him cuz he's just a sh*tty gamer.
