Without Cash Shark Cards, the GTAO Experience is Very Weak

I haven't been playing GTA:O for a couple of months (for the reason below) but recently I got into it because of the Cunning Stunts DLC, which I think is quite fresh for GTA Online. I wanted to buy the new drift vehicle inspired by Ken Block's 1965 Ford Mustang, the Drift Tampa, which costs a whopping $995,000. It seems to me that these extreme prices are put it by Rockstar only to influence you into buying the Cash Shark Cards, so you can afford anything ranging from houses to cars (and upgrades for cars). I wanted this vehicle so bad that I started doing heists, but man I tried the prison break heist at least 3 times today and failed every time because the ground units kept dying (like you would on hard mode). And this was only for a mere $100k, which I did not earn in the end. Think about doing that 10x. It really seems A LOT for a vehicle... It's like you have to farm the game for weeks to buy a couple of cars you like. After reports came in, with rockstar earning over $500k million from shark cards in the past year alone if I'm not mistaken, I can't help but think that this whole GTA Online 'free dlc' thing is just a cash grab by Rockstar (Captain Obvious here...). It's the same business model for every mobile game out there.

When I first heard way back in the day that Rockstar will introduce 'light micro transactions' I thought you will never notice it, I was wrong. I would much prefer to have a $50 season pass with reasonable prices for the DLCs, than to have whatever this is...

Yes, shark cards are evil, everything's expensive, Rockstar is money hungry.

 

We get it.

 

No offense, but this thread has been made thousands upon thousands of times, if not millions.

 

It's a really tired subject.

Well, have you tried doing CEO and/or VIP work?

That helps a lot.

Stay away from heists unless you have 3 competent friends.

 

Unfortunately only those who play this game and grind it very often get to buy everything. The prices are getting ridiculous but there's nothing we can do about it.

Well, when you make an unoriginal thread with an unoriginal message, what do you expect?

 

You didn't add much of anything to the tired subject that's been "discussed" many times before.

 

The B&M thread is always there if you wanna talk about how dumb or overpriced you think shark cards are.

 

Like the thousands of times before, it didn't really need its own thread.
