So this 500k business

Recommended Posts

JimmyDeJesus

I'm happy we're all getting it and stuff, but personally I didn't lose any character/car/money so it feels a bit, well, wrong.

 

I'm sure I'll spend it on stuff to enjoy etc etc, but when I'm in my plush apartment snorting imaginary coke from the inner thigh of a high class pixelated hooker while another one eats my arsehole like a horse eats an apple, it's just gonna feel a bit like I didn't really earn it. Which could have damaging effects on the velocity of cyber jizz I spray around the plush new apartment.

 

I suppose it must have been difficult to work out which players did and did not lose stuff to then assign the compensation.

 

Anyone else feel similar?

I don't mind spending the money, though thanks for the thoughtful offer.

 

I'm surprised none of the Whiny Gimp section of this forum isn't giving it some hardcore discussion on why everyone should not get it though.

I do agree with you. I also think i will feel a bit "empty" if i would buy the 400k apartement, when money is given to me completly free,(Though i nearly have 400k saved up right now playing completly legit.) the most sat part is that knowing that every single player will have the apartement. But it's not that big of a deal for me since, now i will be able too just focus on cars, 10 slot garage, is just what i need, the apartements arent really anything special anyways, I'm gladly going to accept the money and pour it into 1-2 cars,

 

I have lost 2 characters highest being only rank 13, but it's not like i demand a compensation, since sh*t happends when a game is just released. Most players have more money than they even need, cause of glitching and etc, most legit players might find this a bit sad, but i think rockstar had to do something to compenstate, even if 500k is quite a bit, it wont hurt i guess.

Hmm, let me think about it... no. I don't feel empty about it. Getting rich without doing anything? A dream come true.

 

Next up: waiting for that to happen in real life.

i lost 450k thanks to losing saves for apartments and such.

 

which i then grinded out like a prick.

 

add that to the hard grinding ive done, i now own pair of planes, the 400k apartment, and a personal boat.

 

that 500k could do nothing more than help me pay my expenses as well as enable more buys and upgrades.

 

rarity wants.

If you feel it's so "wrong", then by all means, give me your 500k. I'll be more than happy to take it from you. If you're not going to give it away, stop whining about it being "wrong".

Like I said, I don't mind spending it.

 

The point was that it seems a bit harsh on people who actually lost stuff and I wondered if anyone else thought so.

 

But thanks for that well thought out response, dumbass.

No, your point was that since you didn't lose anything, you felt it was wrong for you to get it in the first place. So, again, if it's so wrong for you to get the 500k, then why are you so happy to spend it? Instead of making a thread to prove your hypocrisy, you should have just kept quiet and went on your merry way. Dumbass.

A forum is a place for open discussion, he's asking other players what their thoughts are regarding the 500k compensation, this is what forums are for.

You seem to have missed the point, much like the OP. Not surprising.

I just don't get why people are worrying about everyone online having the most expensive apartment or just the 200-300k ones. If you think about it this way, by the time heist is released, most if not all will have an apartment already and for the people who doesn't, are they going to miss out just because they don't have an apartment with a planning board for it? No, its just rock star covering their asses in my opinion.

I've missed the point of my own thread?

 

How does that work then?

Probably right there. Maybe it also (from R*'s pov) gives everyone a bit of a lift from pimping out their cars etc so they feel like they're having more fun in the game.
