I doubt it happens like that, "welp I just wasted x amount of time, better spend 20 bucks again". It's more like, you don't have enough money for the thing you want to buy at that moment, and that's because you either haven't had many sales, don't grind or don't play that much.

 

Thank you for the response, I agree with this sentiment. If anything, getting OrbCanned wouldn’t drive me to angrily respond by giving R* actual money. Probably would drive me to stop playing the game as much. 

 

Been fortunate with having a great great crew help out in public lobbies for sales but even more fortunate of having not been OC’d since the damn thing released with Doomsday (pesky kids using the initial free OC shots lol)

Once again, I’m asking if any of the forum members have gotten so angry from losing a sale that they bought a shark card.

I have many on my friends list that have given up on freemode and continue to play. A few quit completely as they weren't playing public or buying cards having found it too much a grind, most glitched or had healthy banks like me to think 'made it' too. But a few have bought cards when the moment called for it. Pretty much the same, though they were more bored trying or just didn't like the balance as it got worse than got angry, lol. Disappointed more.

 

To many players, a few quid here and there is nothing to get a toy/access to new content, and I do agree with them. It's just how R* went with it more and more, trade prices instead of natural progression grew, phone calls are persistent until we cave, and freemode getting more and more easy to use OP stuff to stall players (like this daft cannon).

 

It's just not competitive or too much a grind for many for lots of reasons, and there is much more fun in this game than making money or replaying missions/heists/sales for many that it's still a great game worth a few bob now and then to them as they love GTA:O still.

 

The billions made highlight that, trade prices becoming popular too. It's not so much getting angry then buying, it's more trying the gameplay and not liking that aspect combined with having cash in the bank IRL and wanting to still play here. (Soz for the long post). :)

You really don’t have to make assumptions or enemies out of my posts. I deplore loot boxes and predatory consumer practices just as much as others around here. I literally asked if anyone here had purchased a card out of anger from the OC.

I have been quite mad about this cannon a fair amount of times but I didn't purchase shark cards, I just became an expert on Russian submarines

It's a toughie to ask here, lol. Most of the folk that got hit by that thing or caught out elsewhere that are here have so much help available here to avoid a repeat, lol.

 

As soon as I realised I didn't have to be in populated public lobbies, and how weak the game is at sustaining populated lobbies at times, my problems were solved. 🤣🤣✌✌

Nothing to be sorry for my lonely robot fren, I pretty much mirror your thoughts down to the smiley emoji. Thanks for the reply.

 

Had an acquaintance or two that discussed buying cards from being overwhelmed by the game (up to a couple of years sabbatical). The FOMO of not having all the toys or properties made them actually consider the cards. After helping out on what was essential to buy rather than what was the most attractive, and settling them into a profitable routine, they were good as gold. That extra actual cash went to a good cause (booze and food).

Thank goodness for 4K streaming while playing online eh? 

 

I’ve been spoiled in a good way really. Having a friend or two providing air support (while returning the favor obviously) has been a success 9 out of 10.

 

And yeah, I’d be far more annoyed by the OC if I was actually a victim of the beam as much as others have. I don’t know if it’s luck or poverty but I truly haven’t witnessed or been victimized in public lobbies since that ridiculous free orbital shot R* gave everyone. 

 

Now, the Mk2 Oppressor? Well, that’s for another thread lol.

For sure. Like I said, I’m forever grateful for having a dedicated group that helps each other out consistently. The Jet/Heli/Oppressor griefers usually avoid organized crews that have air support...always looking for the easy solo targets. Hilarious and sad to see a player blip in a weaponized vehicle rush towards you, realizes you’re in a team, only to break away and go after a single, low level player.

Yeah, however we play there's little that can compete with a good bunch out there. For me, it was heists where I thrived and it made the freemode stuff all the more casual. But once I found my rhythm there, been set since.

 

Always grateful for meeting some great folk in-game and here too.

If I could, I’d Orbital Cannon you with a beam made of likes. Alas, only one per post. ☹️

The prablem isn't salved, solo public sessions aren't a solution, they're a workaround. You're not fixing the prablem, you're just merely avoiding it.

 

You shouldn't have to go out of your way to look for an empty session in order to make the game actually playable. A multiplayer game is fundamentally flawed if the best way to play it is completely alone.

Then why complain about the Orbital Cannon existing? Tryhards blowing up my rides randomly is fine by me. That can be easily replaced.

Somewhere out there, there's someone offloading millions worth of values trying to find an empty session. I get kicks out of Orbital cannons pranks especially when I orchestrate a car meet among my unsuspecting friends. They fall for it every time! Point being that feature is fine being there. If you're mad about it, just hit up another lobby.

You know for a fact that the consensus on these forums is "f*ck Shark Cards" and that the people that frequent them are hardcore GTA players who hate the idea of GTA becoming a MTX mobile game so the answer would be skewed in the direction you want it to be. As the other user said "billions in sales", do you honestly think that none of that came from people wanting stuff, getting their sh*t wrecked and just saying "f*ck IT!" and buying a Shark Card?

Let's put it this way. You really want that new car, but you keep getting wacked on your grinding effort. It's not going to be 'I'M QUITING', it's more like 'how to I avoid the stupid grinding?' 

It's a bit ironic most of the griefers I see have every single business, several flying dildos, far too much money (either by shark cards, or cheat) Most are pathetically low lvl so obviously NOT from grinding. When you set up a play to win game (pretty much what gta online is aka PvP), you will NOT be getting pleasant results. If they actually bothered allowing co-op public lobbies, most of the cheats would stop, except for a few. THERE'S A REASON PEOPLE CHEAT (hint: outdo the others). I've seen it in a crap load of pvp type games, co-op games.... not such much.

I wish I could use it against Merryweather HQ.

 

There's precious little else in game that would give me more pleasure than seeing that irritating gang of wannabe oo-rahs and their compound blasted into dust.

 

Then i'd fire it again on the charred crater they left behind

Was in a session the other day and a player was spamming this thing hard. I got hit twice in a row and another player was also being spawn killed. I left after the second hit but a friend in the lobby said the player kept killing others.

Earlier today, there were some tryhards having a sniper battle on the beach, so I thought it would be a good idea to join in and interrupt. I kill them a few times, and I notice one of them warped to their facility, which I wasn't surprised by. 

 

I proceed to go into my RC Bandito, only to be greeted by an explosion that fails to kill me, then they leave right after (doing the OC glitch, of course).

I like getting hit with the Orbital Cannon. It means I'm generally doing well, because it's a move of last resort. The funny thing is that, on XBOX One, everybody to a man reckons they haven't paid for it, when I know for sure that they have just spunked $750,000 to get even and make their epeen not feel quite so small.

I find that I get struck by completely random players for no absolute reason. They probably want attention, want to piss people off, are f*cking around with the glitch, or just had a bad day and want to take it out on someone else.

Some minor changes were made, though they still haven't fixed being able to dodge the cost and cooldown by leaving.

 

If you miss though, you don't get refunded anymore apparently. Should make the Bandito more effective against it - before they could blow it up, get refunded and use it again on you. Now they shouldn't.

That's good to hear, but some people know about the Bandito strategy and will wait until you exit it, then blast you the moment you spawn. Happened to me about a month ago.

 

I didn't even have time to blink or do anything. It all happened so fast. Rockstar really love this damn thing.

The people that use this thing, especially on a daily basis, are genuinely laughable, I must say. 

 

 

Enjoy your wasted shot and NOT getting a refund. lol Also, it seems like bridges don't protect you from the OC.

Most people run a glitch where they leave the session after firing so they get the kill but don't pay, and can retry again immediately if they have a way of getting back into the same session (say they have a friend lurking around).

 

I've never done it but I know of it.     I would assume it must work somewhat the same as the height reset trick.

I do enjoy invading their base and ticking them off (and checking for free proximity mine spawns while I'm there).

 

If you really want to have some fun, get a five-star wanted level and then hightail it upstairs to safety--then watch the LSPD and Mercs duke it out. lol
