Maybe they'll actually learn how to play the game this time around.

@Odesza (Chain was getting long.)

Yes, I did make a thread. As R* themselves said it was their fault for an exploit in RDR. (I could find the article if you want)

I don't see glitching as cheating, and R* had that same view. I was wondering if they'd hold up to it.

RDR isn't GTAV and chances are the situation was a lot different and the benefits the cheaters gained was a lot different. Glitching is cheating, the glitching being done in this game is exploiting aspects of the game itself that is literally one of the definitions of cheating in regards to video games.

I would say that Rockstar wouldn't even notice all these glitches, but people are so f*cking stupid and think/hope they might become a second Pewdiepie or whatever on Youtube :,) And those guys just ruin it for everyone including themselves.

 

BTW: some of the glitches are so f*cking impossible to discover, I am really wondering how people do that... Maybe it's some Rockstar employee :D

 

Anyway, I think glitching is not as bad as those godmode fags using an other DNS , but should still be punished. I myself did the LSC glitch and to be honest, I was glad that I didn't get punished, but I know I would have deserved it :) but: the extend of someone's glitching should be taken into weighing IF they would ever punish glitchers.

 

 

Everyone who is using wall glitches or godmode-like things should be console banned forever

You think Rockstar wouldn't notice someone having 1 trillion GTA$? Or that people wouldn't report someone in god mode to Rockstar? lol.

 

The getting to North Yankton thing might be the only glitch so far Rockstar might not notice if nobody said anything.

It was an XP exploit (which pretty much runs RDR MP).

It was very similar (except you couldn't get Franklin's Buffalo which is a very minor glitch IMO).

Very similar. I WAS THERE.

"So can you tell me if this ban is permanent I promise I won't do it again. :,("

 

You know that's one of the same kids that probably came on here and went "lol R* wont do sh*t you legits mad?"

They really aren't having much done to them. Two week temp ban and R* leaves you with money.

Edit: But I'm actually happy they're at least being punished for god mode. I can't stand that one.

I'm not sure why you said you were there twice and in caps, I didn't imply you weren't lol. XP pretty much runs an aspect of GTAO considering the weapon unlocks that can give you a big advantage over low level players that aren't cheating. Regardless of that glitching is still cheating for the reason I stated above, if you're abusing an exploit in the game and manipulating some part of the game you are cheating, it's really as simple as that. And that's not just my opinion or anything it's what cheating actually means lol.

I'm arguing the fact that people would be punished for something R* put into the game.

They are cheating by exploiting something Rockstar put into the game with the intent it would be used legitly. Cheating should be punished.

 

There you go.

didn't express myself correctly:

If someone found out a new money glitch and didn't tell ANYONE beside his best friends who STFU aswell, Rockstar wouldn't really think something strange as long they don't farm billions of dollars...

But if there are hundreds of videos of the same glitch on Youtube, it's obvious that Rockstar would fix the glitch, but "luckily" they cannot track down people who did it, and therefore they tell people that they don't consider money/rp glitching as cheating (but actually, they do, but just can't do that much about it)

Depends on how much they check, if someone gains like 2million in ~10minutes they'll obviously investigate the account/activites.

 

But yeah if someone found some new glitch and was abusing it to gain money at a legit rate I doubt they would notice at first or at all.

Is this kid serious. Glitching is abusing an unintended game mechanic. What about that doesnt sound like cheating?

If you're exploiting some aspect of the game for personal gain then you are cheating, that's the only way to look at it logically.

It's just a video game. The people that got banned will get over it and the people whining in this thread about those who haven't been banned will get over it as well.

No sympathy for anybody foolish enough to try this again after 2+ weeks of the message "Taking Aim at GTA Online Cheaters" in every loading screen. Got to have dust in your skull.

Did you?

 

So i have been looking around on other gaming sites and i've noticed there are a lot of people talking about either themselves or other people they know who got banned after using a DNS that some slupt had been posting he even posted it here yesterday morning for like 100K to completely a mission or so but i saw it on here on Sev7nSins and bunch of other sites so you know a whole lotta people got the axe.

 

I wonder how many people got banned for using this DNS

Translation - I used the DNS and made this poll to see what you think the likelihood of me being banned is.

I love the juxtaposition of cheaters and hackers giving it the big one about how cool they are because they're above grinding for cash, and that they're invincible etc.

Yet as soon as the threat of being caught or banned appears they turn into begging, snivelling spoilt brats trying to claim their mate tricked them or their baby brother did it while they were out!

It would mean they would have to ban or punish 3/4 of the population

Mostly everyone I know has used glitches for personal gain.

Be it replaying missions over and over or using LSC.

I very much doubt they can bothered to do that.

What a moment of "derp."

 

If you still thought it was a good idea to use a DNS cheat after the moneypocolypse, you deserve what you get.

 

IMO, a 2 week ban is weaksauce. Unlike previous hacks, where rockstar's stance was fluid, we know the stance on cheating now. We've all seen the loading screens. Should have been a lifetime ban.

Come on. Really.

A DNS that change a mission I never played or got an invite too. I don't think it is that populare.

A guy with no weapons in front of you that you have to kill to complete the mission giving 100k... and 5k RP.

Anybody else than me that think this is a R* created DNS used as bait for players to ban?
