AFK Players/XP farmers in deathmatches

Recommended Posts

Display Name

I feel like they should be perma banned or at least their progress deleted. They destroy balance and make deathmatches not fun to play for everyone else.

Or just kick them out of the match after a certain amount of time.

They have rubber bands on their joysticks, so it's probably hard to detect. It's amazing what some sh*tty YouTube videos can achieve. This wasn't happening on day one, not until some YouTube sh*tter decided to come up with this epic method to gain xp. It's not like it takes 5 hours of AFKing to make any meaningful progress. You might as well not play the game if you don't like progressing the normal way.

Did you smash that like button and subscribe though?

 

I'd like a system where you can report an AFK'er and if they got xx amount of reports they get given a challenge. Like 23+45 = ?  Or something.

I don't care, until they make it easier to get XP aside from Series I don't blame people for AFKing. I would do it if I could be bothered

This is fully Rockstars fault, especially in the races. I raced and finished 5th, got 89 xp. I sat out a race and got last..... 79 xp. What do you honestly expect from a game that doesn't reward you at all for playing?

 

P.S. This is ruining racing as it's often impossible to finish the race cuz more than half the people are afk so I'm not a fan but I understand it

Being kicked from people afk? What do people gain from afk in freeroam?  won't they just lose money because of stable/camp upkeep?

i never did rubberbanding in gtao, because in most of the modes, you are ruining the team chances. i thought in rdo races its i a good idea, the others get more money/xp and i can be afk. then i came back and the race didnt finish because 4 afk guys. 

 

the awful payouts are leading the players to cheat the system

I got no problem with money glitchers but these people suck the fun out of the game. But i guess its in rockstars interest to clear the issue as these people farm gold. 

Dont think anybody will get banned for it...but if you do use this strategy to get cash/gold you seriously got problems imo.

This is very common by some people who is selling XBOX/PSN accounts...

If you can sell a online game account worth more, so...

 

Elder Scroills Online has this phenomenia with "farmbots", and now RDRO...

These people suck, but not as bad as money glitchers? That’s really strange. Money glitchers will have unlimited ammo, dynamite, fire bottles and consumables. It affects the game to a much higher degree than people being afk.

The moneyglitchers i met didnt do it in races but in freeroam. If half of the people in a race dont try to win,its just much less fun. In freeroam everybody does what he wants,i dont care.

Yeah, ruins racing* big time. They need to add timers between checkpoints. Basically like old arcade games.

 

No clue how to address DM's though.

 

(*well, what R* call racing. It's crap!)

Leaving it afk on playlists overnight gives just as much advantage IMO. They're doing nothing and getting quicker access like a money glitches does.

They should just make it so that if a person ain't shooting at people in the deathmatch that they don't get rewarded. Same for racing, just make it so you earn set amount of EXP per checkpoint so people have to race.

Well I’ll not argue the extent of the advantage, I do agree that it’s a very annoying thing to do.

 

I do like the races though. They are a lot of fun and much better and more competitive than they were in the first game.

How do you know they did a money glitch? 

Tbh I really don't know how much of an advantage the money glitches give? From the ones I've seen you actually make more money with hunting and fishing.. ;)

Yeah, each their own as they are fun for the right player of course. 

 

Just money glitches are elsewhere going their thing and not clogging up the start/finish line ruining games for those actually playing.

 

Wouldn't care if I wasn't seeing it really. :(

R* needs to change the exp rates. Its easier to afk than to actually win a match and get close to the same amount of exp/$$
