Xbox here, playing GTAO since 15 months ago.
As fellow forumers told you, Cayo Perico will make the money flow like crazy. I roll on free-aim lobbies with no problems, even selling my Bunker/Nightclub with other players around.


The thing is, I do this sales for fun, without worrying about the timer or the money. I can choose to change sessions at the moment I get on an unfair fight with a jet griefer or stay to defend my sale if I want to test my PvP skills. If all goes wrong and everything burst in flames, no big deal: a bottle of Sinsimito on my bag worths more than a full Bunker trailer. It's liberating being not afraid to 'lose'.


I used to rage about being steamrolled on freeroam by the usual Nightshark/Lazer/Oppressor/EWO f*ckspawn, but now I just scroll the menu to find which toy to use to (hopefuly) make a decent retaliation. I'm gradually enjoying to engage on fights against WAY more skilled or cheat-diotic griefers just to see how far I can last.


So yeah, once in a while you could try to get your feet dirty on a free-aim lobby doing a business battle or a resupply mission of your favorite business, and be ready to fight with all your El Rubio-sponsored armament as a bonus. 

 

I’m not against doing some sales in populated lobbies and getting into fights every now and then, I think it’s just I miss the option to have a lobby to myself with no restrictions or worries. 
 

What really bothers me about it is that R* chose to patch that specific glitch when there are so many more harmful glitches and and bugs that will never be touched.

 

I wasn’t aware of these other methods people are discussing to get a solo public, so I’ll be giving those a try.

So the panther is only 1.9m?

 

Is this all the f*cking hype the forums, reddit and YouTube folks were talking about for months? 

 

Only for 1.9 millions?

 

Frankly, I would have understood it if it like 5 millions since they want to give everyone only a single chance to have it and never again.

 

This is ridiculous.

Wut? We knew up front that the Panther Statue would only be 1.9 / 2.09 million. It was in the game files since CP heist release.
And all the hype on youtube is mostly just for views. I generally stay away from it, and only look up stuff on youtube after it's released in the game.

 

I am more annoyed with the fact that this was the one time I wasn't sitting on hard mode (wasn't expecting the Panther Statue to release this week),

and I got my Panther Statue on normal, and probably won't get it again any time soon.

I bet this Panther Statue is a one time thing and won't be added to the RNG, even this week.

And at least with Casino heist, you don't lose hard mode that easily.

Got the panther, stole it, 2.1M payout because of the artworks and safe on the office + elite challenge bonus.

 

One time only special loot just for this low payout...Meh.

 

Diamonds in the Casino heist can at least spawn a couple of times when they are active.

I think GTAO needs a title update for that to happen. Sometimes a glitch is so severe, a hotfix or background script wont cut it.  I'm sure the glitch will be fixed in the next title update along with others you see in the patch notes.

I kind of get where you're coming from but let's also keep things in perspective a bit. This is a gift of 2 million dollars for about one hour's work. That amount of cash in such a small amount of time would have been unheard of outside of glitching, for the majority of this game's lifespan. We used to feel like we were doing GREAT if we made 300K in an hour, and that was just a few years ago. I did the original Criminal Mastermind twice for 10 mil, and it took a ridiculous amount of time to finish both times, certainly more than 5 total hours with all the planning and load times and everything; it might have been twice that much. Just one year ago, our primary grind was the Diamond Casino, and even an optimal run of that took about 90 minutes and netted 1.1 million each if we were lucky.

 

Bottom line, while this isn't a world-changing amount of money, it's still a lot of money and they are practically giving it to you. Enjoy the gift.

Weirdest of things happened today, as I installed the game to check on the Panther and see about this DLC next week (if I heard this right, if not - delete again).

 

So, I get a message in Social Club from a friend to do his CH, and for some reason I could not send him a message back, but he invites me to his lobby so I join him and tell him we do his CH and my Panther CP after (he was one of the few we were making good cash with between us), so I can shut the game down and go with my day. We chat a bit, he asking me where I've been, etc., we start the mission and I was complaining that this winter fn sucked for me and how much I hate the cold, like to warm my feet already, stuff like that. He said he loves the cold and would love to live in an Ice Age with all this Global Warming, so naturally I immediately write "Unfriended!" in the chat.

 

An obvious joke, right?

 

Right?

 

Well, I thought so, but then he writes in the game chat "You unfriended me?!?" and shuts the heist down while I was writing "It was a joke, lol", and as it turned out - I had... unfriended him by some mysterious GTAO way I guess (as I haven't played the game for months). But here's the thing: while in his lobby his icon had the blue around it and I was seeing the color of his CEO on his yacht and stuff, which you don't for someone who's not your friend, as far as I'm aware, so he writes me a message on the Social Club "Oh, it was not a joke, I now see you have unfriended me!" and I guess unfriended me (back?), while I was looking for a way to write him back.

 

Oh, well.

 

 

Edit: 30 minutes later and he still writes me butt hurt messages. I still can't write him back and "Invite from last Heist" option is not available in CP, I guess? What a mess, lol.

So many issues with GTA could be so easily fixed with a simple IQ test before login.

I disagree. They would quarter it, at least. But what a joyous place Los Santos would be...

 

This came about from me trying to help a buddy thru his DCH. Was cash, so he brought randoms. After literally hours of failure, he called me in. 

 

I am a heist f*cking master, but even I cannot save a run when 2 crew members are hellbent on failing as hard as possible in every way possible. Shooting guards in front of cameras, shoving each other in front of cameras, just standing there in front of cameras, telephoning security to ask them if they're watching the cameras then waving at them, getting a degree in electronic engineering so they can design and install better cameras then jumping up and down in front of cameras while screaming "We're theives!!" and setting off fireworks...

 

I've said this before, but I'm an old school gamer, so to me part of the enjoyment is being good at the game I'm playing. Like, it's a game, that I choose to spend my free time playing, so a) it ain't that f*ckin' hard and b) why on earth would I not want to win that game?

 

I truly do not understand what these lazy, greedy, selfish, stupid, clumsy children are getting out of this. Is it not demoralising to just keep sucking with no attempt at improvement? Are they addicted to failure screens? Is losing the new winning? Is this some millennial c*nt's joke that gen x cunts don't get? 

 

Btw, my friend and I ended up 2-manning it. Half the take was better than no take at all.

 

And now he's in the process of scooping up a Panther Statue because I dragged him kicking and screaming away from DCH and made him buy a sub. Not a bad way to start one's Cayo Perico career. Between the Madrazzo Files & the Panther, the Sub & Sparrrow are effectively paid for.  #F*ckRandoms

I've gotten pretty decent with the Akula over the years, but I still hate when the rotors hit a tree or pole and you just get tossed around like a ragdoll before exploding.

Why the f*ck does this sh*t happen?

 

 

As soon as the race is about to start, the game sends me into the clouds, then back down again to free mode. Waste of time.

Goodness me what is going on with getting stuck in animations?

 

Once I got stuck at the Casino Wheel after winning clothes, and next I got stuck in the Terrorbyte trying to interact with the console. ARGH!

My moan, game saves not working,  load back in from stealing the panther statue,  change my spawn point, change cloths to force a save,circle pops up indicating it saved. Fast forward a day or two later, load in, get the message from Paval, you have completed all steps, blah blah blah.

 

Yep, it didnt save .

Whats the point of having the jewel encrusted panther as part of an event if you never get it as a target to begin with? Defeats the whole point of the event. I tried eight times thus far and have not gotten it once besides the freebie they give you on your first run. At least with the Diamond Casino Heist I could keep resetting until I got diamonds but you can't do that here. If you reset you lose the bonus that hard mode offers.

Just feels like regular Cayo Perico. Considering its only available for a week they could make the chance if it being your target at least a little higher than it is. 

 

The latest scouting attempt for my ninth run got me tequila again and just decided to say screw it after that. There is no point to the event if you never get the panther.

 

If what people are saying is true and you can only get it once then what is the point? You could get diamonds all week during a promotion event but why do you only get the panther a single time in Cayo Perico. People will just quit playing after they get their one panther. Nothing is going to keep them around for the whole week. I just wish they were more forthcoming with this information. Nothing on the newswire implies you can get it only once and thats it. Just that your first run guarantees the panther will be there. Making people assume that its possible to get it again after the first time if luck is on your side.

 

Really pisses me off to be blunt. I burnt myself out on Gta Online trying to get the panther more than once. Rockstar could have outright said this in the newswire to prevent such confusion.

I accepted long ago that it's not the matchmaker giving me idiot teammates exclusively - it's the fact that the vast, vast majority of players these days are children. That's R*'s target market now, because they buy Shark Cards. Hate to break it to the kiddies, but they're all f*cking morons; lazy, greedy, clumsy, shortsighted, entitled morons that ruin everything they touch.

 

The whole reason I liked R* as a developer was that they made adult-oriented games. That died with the evolution of GTA Online, and my love for R* died with it. 

 

The worst part is R* & T2 don't care that they're driving away the very people that supported them for their first 15 years; as every media corp from Disney to YouTube has learned, kids are where the money is at, so that's who is being catered to. As GTA devolves into this trashfest we now have, Take 2 sits on their mountain of cash and congratulates themselves on a job well done.

 

Seriously, go read some statements by T2's CEO, Strauss Zelnick - it's like listening to a frat boy bragging about date rape. Just jaw-dropping cringe, every word.

Why do asshole players feel the need to kick someone that is On-Call to join a job?

 

its an ideal system to keep active, while waiting for a mission to start or the host to ready up.

Lol, I've wondered the very same thing. Back when I would regularly (try to) join random DCH runs, the kick rate was astonishing. It would sometimes take 20+ attempts to actually get into one. 

 

I think it's a few things that cause it. I know the newbies carry a prejudice against high-ranked players - to a kid who picked the game up a month ago, ranks in the high hundreds seem unbelievable. All high ranks must be cheaters, all positive k/d's must be griefers. 

 

Plus many people don't know how to default their matchmaking to Closed, so when they start a job, randoms drop in. They want to play with specific people, so they kick the randoms.

 

Or they think that you being there will impact their chance of success - you'll demand a high cut, or be too strong a competitor. 

 

As a little experiment, I queued up for DCH's while typing this. I'm playing my lowbie second character who is a mere 280-something. So far, I've been kicked about 10 times. 

 

Good thing I have no intention of actually joining one of their demoralising failfests...

 

P.S. lol, no sooner had I typed that, I got into one. 3 man S&S, Cash, teammates are 44 & 110 (host). Aaand the host didn't do Keycards prep. Aaaaand he just blew the hack. The heist began and ended in the time it took me to type one f*cking paragraph. Palm, meet face.

They're kids, Athens, with the narrow and fully subjective worldview that kids have. They're barely aware of a universe beyond their own existence, and have not yet made the realisation that every other human on Earth is as individual and complex as they are. They can measure only by their own limited experience, and anything beyond that is almost inconceivable to them.

 

All of which, of course, is why I'd rather not deal with them. What I wouldn't give for an age filter on my matchmaker lol.

Why is this game so laggy? Players lagging and teleporting all over the place, kills taking 20 seconds to register, etc. Trash.

It mostly depends on the type of people you play with and their connection since rockstar don't actually use dedicated servers
