Who's using the HIDE option for events and jobs ?

Who's using the new HIDE option in events?. Its customizable.

 

I hid all events but King of the Castle .

 

I found that the events had me drop everything to rush to the site and prepare. They remind me athlete reality shows like American Ninja Warrior, Wipeout and Bullseye competitions. Its a cheesy feel overall. It was extremely distracting to my gameplay. Its not that I wasn't good. I placed 1st in a few and 3-5th in the rest. I didn't like the countdown timer music and the dirty tactics of which Im guilty of as well.

 

The intro screen promotes the hide option as the "quiet " life which is far from my truth. I keep myself very busy during free roam without the events. My beloved Los Santos is back to feeling realistic, no more cheesy game show music.

 

What events or jobs have you kept and which ones have you hid? For me, King of the Castle comes on once a day when I happen to be on which is refreshing enough to be up for the challenge. I might reactive the money coin? event. That one was alright.

Hiding jobs doesn't hide job invites, only the map icons and blue job coronas.

 

I just keep all of them on Show - even if I'm not interested in an event it's nice to have the knowledge that it's going on so I could join if I wanted to. I wish you could hide specific challenges though, so I can hide challenges that aren't really playable like sniper/melee/headshot/driveby challenges.

My friend might keep Penned in . Hes using the Insurgent next time. The insurgent is a must for Penned In, King of the Castle had him almost slamming down his controller.

He was totally lost during Hunt the Beast, He tried it once, don't think he will play again as the Hydras had the advantage. He likes the coin game as well. Im going to have to log in to remember the name.

Coin game... you mean the Checkpoint Challenge?

 

Penned In is all right. I find it amusing how so many people feel that an Insurgent "is a must". So far I've won it in a Turismo, a limosuine, a Sandking, and a dune buggy. I really want to try it in a BMX but taking it from my garage to the event in 4 minutes is usually impossible.

 

I finally got a chance to play as the Beast yesterday. After taking a few sexual snapmatics I picked up the landmarks. It's not easy - I had like three Hydras and at least two attack choppers flying all over the map trying to get to me, as well as a bunch of Kurumas and Zentornos skidding all over the place. I had my wits and a dirtbike. I eventually won in the end but christ it gets intense.

@Vanessa, oh, that's right, thank you for the clarification. Yeah, I hate walking into a circle and being loaded up into a race I didn't want. I thought it meant you can hide the jobs that say, 1,000,000,000 $$$$ and 100K RP !! jobs. lol. I'll go turn off those job circles now, no more walking into them. thanks for reminding and clarifying

Unfortunately, no. Your duodec-hourly invites to $1000000000000000+ 100000000000 RP GLITCH HACK are here to stay permanently.

Sexual snapmatics? ROFL were you using your beast to air thrust on helpless pedestrians? lol

Congrats on the win, you convinced me, I might turn the Beast game back on, I would like to play the Beast and get in a few innovative photos. Wonder whats not been done before? Would have to give that more time and thought check back in with you all.

I took one of the Beast lying on her side like a pornstar, and a second one that appeared to be a point-of-view photo of someone mid-coitus with the Beast. I'm a 12-year-old at heart.

 

One thing I do kind of want to see is a Beast that will say 'screw the landmarks' and just hold out a position somewhere, like in Fort Zancudo or the mineshaft. If you don't visit a landmark for like 6 minutes your icon becomes visible to everyone, so it might be interesting until (inevitably) somebody just walks up to them in passive mode and shotguns them.

LOL you should post those pics to Rockstar social club. Good ideas on the Beast, Ill try that too. I know all the hiding spots on the map upper and lower. When I get bounties on me in freeroam I can wait it out , but it gets boring and even when they do press in, I know how to hold my area and make it difficult for them.

There is one surface building on the map, Ive rarely heard mentioned and few know about. You can go very deep inside, (its not the airport) Its one of my favorite spots cause its like a maze with many doors.

I did upload one of them - with two different captions, one lewd and the other considerably more lewd.

You no longer automatically load a job by walking into its circle you have to push right on the dpad now.

No ones using them because no one wants to do their sh*tty jobs that pay $2000 for $20,000 worth of work.

Allow me to clarify. I meant I prefer to hide events and jobs using my interaction menu now because I don't want to see them pop up or walk right into them. Its a major inconvenience to me personally.

Fair enough but none of them pay $2000 unless you don't participate at all. Most of them pay $10-30K each when you win.

But if you're like me and try and fail miserably a lot of us are paid very little.

I haven't lost many of them but I still get paid a decent chunk when I lose. Usually like 5-6 grand?

"Not Worth the Rage" lol I like that saying. It could be a t shirt " "Put the Controller Down, Its Not Worth the Rage" and show a picture of a game controller

 

Another gamer tee. "Gamers Never Die. They Just Respawn"

 

Back to work now....

How many events require you to spend ammo? 3? 5? Simply don't participate in those events. It's no different than ignoring 100000000rp trap matches.

You guys didn't tell me someone had the "Salty Fragrance"

 

 

It wasn't made to ignore those kind of things,they were made because you might step on a blue circle while playing one of those random events

I hide all jobs/races, but leave all the events--just so I know what's going on around me.

I've already established I turned the events off a while ago. Are you just trying to get back at me because I said you had a terrible joke?

And how was what I typed considered an attack. I just think your initial over dramatic exageration was unnecessary since like you pointed out you have those event alerts disabled.

I think it's funny how you have to press right on d-pad to start jobs. I lost it when Rockstar said it was a glitch that someone could push you into it.

I've found I need to keep the blue halos so I can bypass the mechanic delivery cooldown. But you have to press the dpad to initiate them now so it's all good. Don't really care about map clutter as it's always been there.

 

As for free roam events I'm still pretty enamored with them and participate any chance I can.

Hide the job circles just load a job from your phone or the start menu does the same thing.

The second I seen we had the hide options feature, I hid everything except the Time Trial. I never win the Time Trial so I should just hide it too.LOL
