Xbox Prisoner

Do you think the max number of players in freemode should be increased again?

Should Freemode Receive another increase on player capacity. From 32 To...?

Decreased.

 

Rather have old school 16 player lobby while using additional resources to implement wildlife.

 

Pretty much think thread should be closed now.

OP joined 10 hours ago and has 5 topics out already, I'm sorta impressed.

 

But no, more players = more lag, more network errors, more abusing "kick" features, more potential griefers (with fewer ways to escape), and more bugs (possibly connected to lag).

Hell no.

 

Reason -lag.

 

30 player sessions, even 20 player sessions, can get extremely laggy (on Xbox One). If a lot of players have police after them it gets ridiculously unplayable. It's this which causes vehicles to spawn in upside down or fly across the map or even spawn half inside a building.

 

Increasing the player capacity in freeroam would be horrible.

With my internet connection I suppose even bigger lobbies would mean solo public would be almost guaranteed for me, but seriously, no.

 

I'd actually be happier if the player cap and CEO slots were reduced.

Easy there cowboy, GTA can't handle the size it's at now. As literally everyone else has said, it should be decreased by half.

I say yes. The easier I can get an empty lobby, the more chance I have of selling without some clown ruining days of grind.

On PS4 I find 15-20 players is usually the sweet spot of enough action to be exciting while still leaving room to maneuver and maintaining good enough performance.

I prefer active lobbies and I would definitely welcome a measured increase of more players in the session. The more people, the more lively a session feels to me and vice versa.

 

As long as the stability/connections to the session wouldn't be affected, let's go for it. I would also like a way for blips to be off the radar and folks to have a (R* sanctioned) way to sell solo. Hopefully in this hypothetical situation all of these concerns would be worked out.

Well if they ever sort out the many bugs with the new missions this update has presented (cargo disappearing/missions not progressing etc) then maybe it's an idea.

 

However I can't see it ever happening, the game struggles enough as it is with all the stuff that goes on in free roam now, it will only get worse if you try to add more players

to a lobby and I think R* know this which is why it has not happened or been mentioned at all. Remember this is still a PS3 game engine so would have to be rebuilt again I suspect.

Hell no,

They'd have to up the number of max Orgs/MCs for one, given the amount of players who just start one up and do nothing... not even inviting other players and as a result making people who WANT to do org stuff have to session hop

 

Plus the lag is unbearable at times, especially when people are using a McDonalds or Starbuck level wi-fi

Hell to the no, decrease it to 16 if anything. Or, if you're going to keep it at 30, get some f*cking dedicated servers, R*. What do you think session splits and framerate drops are caused by?

Absolutely not. It should be decreased.

 

Big lobbies make the frame rate drop to like, 15. More would make it a slide show.
