GTA ONLINE: ARENA WAR OUT NOW

Recommended Posts

9 minutes ago, the J is for Julia said:

Shunt seems to be bugged, at least on the Dominator. I wasted the cash and saw no effect. Tried using in and out of events and when I was close to another car. I dropped back to the 100% option and the ‘notrous’ works fine.

 

I haven’t experimented with mines yet. Too expensive to make a mistake. 

 

From what I know, all the mines suck

they're meant to be used in the arena war modes so they're considerably weaker in a freemode enviroment than in an arena enviroment

like the emp mine, kills the engine for a couple of seconds. Ok that's good in a packed arena race where every second counts and there's lots of cars who could easily run over your mine

but in freemode why would you want to shut off an engine for a couple of seconds when you can just kill someone with an explosion? and everyone uses flying vehicles too so mines are too easy to avoid

 

emp mine = kills engine

kinetic mine = weaker version of normal prox mine, explosion that knocks a car off-balance but doesn't damage the car too badly

spike mine = destroys tires apparently bulletproof ones too

I haven't seen slide or sticky in gameplay yet but can't expect too much from them

You know, these games are surprisingly enjoyable. I had very low expectations going in. Being able to name your vehicle is a nice touch.

Flag War is alright

 

EDIT: Until your entire team just camps by the enemy flag and leaves yours unguarded. Jesus, have you mouth breathers never played capture the fxcking flag before?!

 

EDIT 2: Seriously? We don't need two tanks trying to capture the flag when the guy on the motorcycle (me) is able to weave in and around everybody on the opposing team. USE YOUR BRAIN, IDIOTS.

Didn't buy the arena thingy yet, but I have played in a couple of games, which I won. I even was with one of the mods here. But ultimately, it's a Vespucci Job with bells and whistles. At first, it was kinda fun and that's coming from someone who doesn't do PvP. But I see these game modes to turn stale and empty extremely quickly. Not even grinding for meme vehicles will keep this afloat for long. People will just wait and buy the new dripfed cars, and that's that.

 

Not even worth buying the arena thingy for the trade prices and to "unlock" the ability to buy new clothing and cars at a lower price, and I rather buy them at full price.

If you're going to do a Mad Max themed update, don't half-ass on the other sh*t. Something told me to hold off on buying something before this day, and it was right. I should have gone with my first decision, because this sh*t right here...

You know, with this kind of update this would have been a PERFECT time to bring back the Mr. Whoopee ice cream truck and let us make a killer Sweet Tooth clone.

Something tells me that you need to buy the weapons specialist for the workshop.

Either that, or it just lets you customize weaponized vehicles they already released in the workshop for convenience.

the stuff for the arena are kind of pricey, so i'll be doing more grinding to put an extra (at least) a couple of million so i don't go broke.

Although, reading the description for the mechanic you get when you purchase the workshop, I don't think you'll need to pay for the other specialists (to get the weapons, I mean).

It says they can perform any 'arena-legal' modifications... so that probably means they can get you weapon upgrades, too.

I really wasnt expecting this.  I actuall had a very good time.  The awards are going to take a while.  Maybe GTAO and RDO can exist after all.  Luckily I have so much cash in GTA...I should never have to grind it again unless I want to.  5 stars on this update for me.  Finally some costumes, I am gonna have to give up my dunce hat to get most of them.

Gotta say, today was a real first for me...

 

Never once have I literally spent the whole day killing/trying to kill players, and actually wanted to, all day long. 

 

What a blast!

Damn shame. Sounds like they might be useful for PvE, especially for I/E, but that's an expensive modification to make for such limited application.

Only played through a little bit of this update, but I did watch a DLC showcase on Youtube. Here are my pros and cons:

 

Pros:

 

  • The new garage and especially the Maze Bank Arena interior look really damn good
  • The new vehicles look pretty neat and detailed
  • More garage space

Cons:

 

  • Prices of f*cking everything, even the new clothes, put all previous updates to shame. I'm hearing around the internet that the total price of buying everything is around 250 million.
  • Yet another "business" that players are forced to buy in order get the most out of the update.
  • Custom vehicles are basically required to win any of these modes. There's no way to turn customs off, so if you're running stock, you're going to be in for a tough time.
  • And most damningly, these are basically glorified Adversary Modes, which means that in two weeks' time, the popularity of Arena War will drop dramatically. This, combined with the steep buy-in cost of buying and upgrading Arena vehicles to remain competitive, means that people will have spent millions on vehicles they can't even really use anymore.

Not to mention, yet again, the modes aren't balanced very well. I played one where a team of monster trucks had destroy a team of Weeny Issis. The Issis were so much faster and more agile than the monster trucks that we could barely catch them. One round came down to me in a truck versus another guy in an Issi and I couldn't come close to catching him no matter what I did. The truck was too damn slow and tipped/rolled over too easily for it to be any kind of fair fight.

 

Don't know about anyone else, but I'm gonna save my money and play this by ear. I'm not going to spend millions buying cars and playing these modes just for them to become a ghost-town once the double payouts end.

All I need to know about this update is that the post dedicated to it only has 2 pages of comments at the end of the day...

 

...that said, looks like more of the same bullsh*t.  Too bad it took them so long to open up the arena.  That was a much requested feature back when people played this steaming pile.  GTA:O’s steep decline has been comical to watch from the outside...I can only imagine how pissed I’d be if I was still invested...I would say, “it’ll all be better with GTA6:O” but RDR2:O is proving to me that Rockstar can’t figure this sh*t out.
