With the accidental push of a button, I lost 250K

Recommended Posts

theHumanGhost

So I just got back to the game recently because I bought it for the PC. I was a sucker and bought a shark card because I wanted a quick jump on money and grinding a million bucks was going to take a while.

 

I figured, if I become CEO, it would take maybe a couple of weeks grinding to get it back. So I did it. To get familiar, I browsed the management menu for a bit. I clicked on the "name" part of the menu where you can change your business name. Well, I haven't used a controller on the PC, and I have my PS3 controller connected, but it's under X-Box buttons (Y, A B). Having never owned an X-Box, I don't know the layout.

 

Long story short, I hit OK instead of Back, and bam: -250,000 from my bank. The kicker is, I didn't even enter a name and kept the same name. Now, I will admit ignorance on my part, but no prompt saying "Are you sure you want to change your name?" or anything? I mean come on. Even on other menus in GTA there is prompt.

 

250K lost. Again, I know it's my fault, but come on man, that's ridiculous. I'm so livid that I don't even want to play after just buying the damn thing. Oh well. f*ck R*. I was a sucker three times. My fault.

Don't blame yourself. The whole Online thing sucks a lot and is hated by majority of GTA fans. I personally didn't even play it yet and actually don't want to. Play singleplayer! F*ck R*, Online and Shark Cards.

Blame yourself...The layout is exactly the same, it's only that the buttons are labeled differently...You f*cked up.

 

 

I am also on PC and use a PS3 controller...Never had that issue.

Actually, can someone show me where it says it will cost $250,000 to change your organisation's name once you've already got one? I certainly don't recall seeing any documentation or pop-up message about it.

To be honest, that it costs that much in the first place is laughable.

You can get 200k in an hour of VIP missions and about 1000000x that in 30 minutes of a public PC lobby. Your real mistake was buying a shark card.

I clicked this thread expecting to read a riveting tale about you accidentally jumping out of the plane while selling a full warehouse, followed by posts telling you to use the CEO Sale Failures thread. I was prepared to feel bad about you losing $2.2M.

 

But $250K?? You can make $250K in 20 minutes by landing in the Pac Standard finale with a moderately generous host. Hell, if you were on PS4, I'd run it with you...

If you go back to the Dynasty8 Executive website where you can add options you didn't have before or change your Assistant's gender, you can change the font/color of your Organization name for free or if you change the name it puts a red $250,000 on the left side of the screen.

You are not alone. Happened to me too. Didnt see the instruction below that said that it will cost me 250.000, just saw the -250.000 in the up right. Desided to stick to that name :p

All reasonable developers but an are you sure prompt in. Rockstar feed on mistakes though. You can be sure it was made easy to make the mistake by design.

Perhaps your reading comprehension skills are not up to par, but I blamed myself through out the entire post. Thanks for playing jack ass

It was still 250k when there was no sign lol, 250k to change it for 4 hours... I didn't even see the point in it.
