people dumped the game or what?

I noticed since the patch 1.05 they are less and less players couple of days ago I used to join a lobby full of 16 players

now I hardly find 5 players so I'm wondering are people given up this game too early and moved to COD or its a new technical

issue from rock star servers because the game seem to be a desert now

Quite a few people I know are bored with the game now. I'm getting there.

 

I was hoping for heists before my xbone gets here but I doubt it.

First day with online and no one's around to play...too late to jump on the train i guess.

There are surely less people playing than at launch, that's true of any console multiplayer. It's not related to the lobbies with few players in them though. As you said, it went straight from 16 player lobbies to 3 player lobbies over the course of an hour with the 1.05 patch.

 

The fact you can find 100 different lobbies with 3 people each, instead of 20 different lobbies with 15 players each, just illustrates that there's something wrong with the matchmaking. Which is a shame, because the free roam matchmaking was the only matchmaking done right.

I'm personally glad that CoD Ghosts is now out so all of the 5 year olds that shouldn't have ever been given GTA V will finally be gone.

Agreed

 

Before the update i had no problems finding almost full and full lobbies in both FA and AA. Now both options have 5 or less in the lobby and that's with me trying to find a new session several times

 

The patch has definitely broken something

Confirming this myself right now...I have swapped sessions 5 times with no more than 5 people in a lobby.

There's got to be something wrong because 16 players isn't a lot for a game as popular as this. Even if only 1600 players were online at any 1 time, that's still 100 lobbies with 16 players each in.

 

I noticed this problem last night as well - hardly ever more than 5 in any 1 game.

Good point. Surely there'd have to be at least 5-15k people on this game worldwide, right?

With the issues over people not being able to log in at weekends or being kicked due to capacity the last month, R* upgraded the capacty massively to cope with demand.

 

Now with up to 50% of the playerbase playing BF/COD we've pretty much got a server each.

 

It'll be addressed soon i'm sure. Should be their side, shouldn't need a patch.

I've noticed a lot of players have swapped to free aim, all the lobbies I have been in recently have been full, when I swapped back to auto aim there was hardly anyone in the lobby.

I will try that. Had the same problem yesterday, that I only found Lobbies with 4-5 Players, 1 week ago (I started with AC Black Flag) I was always in a 16ppl Lobby.

THIS is the most awesome thing that could ever have happened.

Auto aimers have "SURPRISINGLY" got bored of the game.

Are all these "empty lobby" threads from auto aimers?

Yesterday and today I've seen reasonable lobbies in free aim.

A lot of us *can't* get online due to "cloud server unavailable" issues with Rockstar. If you haven't seen the posts around here, it's a problem with the save/load mechanism specific to garages and characters, in which players are losing the contents of their garages (cars, bikes, etc) and their characters (profiles, apartments, money, etc). Not sure exactly what's going on, but I haven't been able to log in since early yesterday. Was hoping to jump in last night, but no luck. <sigh>

You've got four relatively new games all out at the same time.

 

Of course players will be spread out across all those games.

We got tons of promises that were never made / given. And I hate to say it, but GTA Online is pretty much a "GTA 4 FreeMode Advance". It's not that appealing.

 

Don't get me wrong the game is great, it's entertaining at that. But after a while, what is there to do? They make it impossible to earn money, they removed replaying missions (and no I don't mean glitching money, I mean legitimately replaying missions that you liked even if it's a low payout). You can't really have fun with armored/missile vehicles, because of fear of Bad Sport.

 

To be honest this game doesn't deserve the rank "GTA Online". Because all it is, is GTA 5 - Multiplayer. Once they add more cities, like Liberty City and maybe Vice, then sell the game as a separate disc, then call it GTA Online. But right now it's not that.

 

I still play the game occasionally. But I'm just saying it as it is. It's very much recycled.

 

Then we have heists that never got here....And I'll bet you when it does come here, it's going to be either incredibly hard to do, or still won't pay off.

 

 

--------------

 

Edit:

 

Also to add. They said they were going to give us content creator. But right now, all it's going to be is deathmatches and races. That is no fun at all. Imagine the opportunity we would've had if it were missions instead (which yes they said they would add, but when? "Soon"?). I mean creating missions would've greatly expanded the game. Even if it had no dialogue - or better yet if the dialogue was subtitled/through text. Imagine doing 100+ missions people created, Scarface Missions, Godfather/Don Missions, Triad Missions, Racing missions, Small jobs, more hood jobs, it would've been AMAZING. But races, and deathmatch? I know I barely play any of those modes, since we of course had them in GTA 4 (and tired of it).

It's just my guess, but I think a lot of the modders/glitchers/hackers/cheaters/exploiters got bored and moved on.

Bug in the patch I confirmed this by changing sessions a lot only to end up with the same few people however if I do an activity and finish it I ended up in different sessions with more people and just now I joined quite a lot of full sessions

This is the answer.

R* blew their chance.

Bf4 is fun, but, i play 80/20 gta 5 80%.

 

I logged into a server last night with just me. 5 minutes later it was full.

 

If you dont like gta 5 simply walk away. Stop obsessing over why you hate it in the forums. What you are doing is asinine

 

I have had connection issues, frame rate drops and freezes. Ive also had the same issues with all my other new games. It happens. I deal with it and restart.

 

Instead of a copy paste project rockstar took a chance with online. In the end this will be epic.
