Solo Play?

Recommended Posts

ExtremeMMA

Does anyone else do this? I feel like every time I play online, even though I'm a good sport and don't bother anybody, I get kicked by other players. I've been playing in solo mode and find it fun, not being bothered by others or getting kicked, but is there alot of jobs I'm missing out on in solo mode?

The only thing is crates that ppl call in and Simeons special vechile deliveries, so no not much.

I don't believe you're actually being kicked by other players when you join a public match; it has happened to many people on my friend list and could possibly be an issue with the online mode which Rockstar needs to address.

You miss out on bigger payouts when racing with more players. Have you tried joining a crew? I mostly stick to closed sessions for the reasons you described.

You still get the Simeon specials in an invite only session, which is essentially solo play if you don't invite anyone in.

Solo yes your missing a lot.

Invite Only - no your not missing anything.

 

Invite Only can spawn the crates, sim-sh*t's vehicles (who the f*ck does this honestly... sell a Baller and go play a mission sh*t stick)

 

Solo you cannot join other players at all. That means you can ONLY play 1-X player maps. That means no deathmatch, no 2+ player missions (generally cop/robber or last man standing)

 

You play how you want... you gimp ass motha f*cka.. GTA does not cater to you; fresh out of Hello Kitty Online: Pony Edition.

Start, Online, Crews

 

You could also do this, it's a quicker way of joining a top crew:

1) Eject the DVD tray

2) Insert 3 toothpicks

3) Close tray

 

If it doesn't automatically boot up into a crew session, shake the console several times.

 

Only works with Xbox. PS3 has anti-toothpick measures in place.

Just do solo for your free roam, when you want to do jobs join a full lobby.

Solo is practically a single player experience for your avatar. No one can f*ck with your money making schemes. Solo is how you get rich without anyone in your way. Now I see why some people are broke in this game, those that haven't glitched or exploited sh*t.

Go to closed crew or closed friend session. Everything is unlocked...

I do this to, but most of the time I play with my crew members. I know it`s more fun to play solo than being kicked or randomly killed by some moron, but it`s even more fun to play with people who are actually doing the same thing - avoiding randoms. I never play with randoms and I think I will only start to play with them when I will have everything I want and I will be throwing money left and right.

I play solo or friend invite only most of the time. Don't have time free rage rooms. If your on PS3 send me a message and I'll send my ID.

No one responded to the troll so he had to post again. Funny.

 

I didn't know that solo mode had less features. I have never used it. I like the randomness of other human players.

The only difference is you don't get special crates, but I haven't got one at all. Not even an alert for one, so I don't know whose dick you gotta suck to get one. In Solo mode you can do just about everything else like special vehicles, jobs, etc. You just don't have some dank constantly taking you out once you exit your apartment with that long animation. Seriously, they need to cut that down by four seconds.

Im 100% sure its a bug or network problem, it happens to everyone randomly and I dont know what causes it, but solo play sucks, you need more than one person for most missions. What really sucks is that you get kicked from free mode when no one kicked you and then you get a bad sport warning for getting kicked out of freemode, WTF? definitely a bug. No one is gonna kick you unless you have a mic and are yelling or blasting your stereo or something and even then it takes many people to kick so most just mute you.

Or it's there for people who have lost countless hours of progress and want to get the money lost or levels lost without being frustrated by d-bags. It's a good option, but not for a badass such as yourself.
