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.

I had over 160M and was getting bored with grinding.  So I blew close to 40M today and maybe won around 150K playing the races.

Zero interest in pretty much everyrhing released today.

 

I was able to purchase the Vapid Imperator and make it into the Mad Max Interceptor, and I really like it. :)

 

The new advanced flags, judging from my one vehicle purchase, are not that bad! 

 

Like every update, we take the bad with the good and I'm sure we'll all find something to like. Prices are insane, though, lol. This update makes glitching almost mandatory to keep up.

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.

 

 

If you're not invested in GTAO anymore, why are you here? I've had a blast with the little bit that I've gotten to play of the update and it sounds like a lot of other people have as well. It's something entirely different to play instead of "steal this cargo and run it to your warehouse and then sell it."

I disagree with your statement about needing custom vehicles to win. I haven't used a single custom vehicle in the 10 or 12 matches I've played in so far and never felt like I was at a disadvantage. Sure the boost in armor you can get from a custom vehicle might be nice, but other than that I personally see no difference.

 

As far as the game mode with the monster trucks and issi classics, it just depends on the match you're in. I played a match earlier and the team of monster trucks won 3 out of the 4 rounds, so I wouldn't say the game mode itself is unbalanced.

Oh dear, this update really isn't my cup of char. Genkibowl with weaponized vehicles. No thanks.

 

Back to RDR2 it is. Hope you kiddies have fun.

Dude...that’s just an awful attempt for likes.

It's not. It's exactly the feeling of revulsion this latest "DLC" made me feel. Horror and despair for the future where this franchise is headed for GTA 6.

Assuming it will ever have a single player component in the future that is.

All of After Hours' sins are forgiven. I had a blast with this update today. All of the arena game modes are amazing, the new vehicles are cool and fun to mess around with, and best of all; my game stopped performing like a bag of farts.

 

Also, the kinetic weapons are a lot of fun to use when messing around in freeroam. It's funny having NPCs tail you through cliff sides and seeing them get flung over the edge by kinetic mines.

yeah, "wreck it" and "hot bomb" are real fun. havent had so much fun for ages in GTAO. i think the most moaning comes from the tryharders and griefers who cant spawnkill the other players with ease and want to keep their precious k/d rate. they have long forgotten what fun is i guess.

 

as i said, i really enjoy it nd hope there will come a lot of new modes and maps in the near future.

Only had time for one race, bomb run, on stock bike. Easy win (tnx to the twitch stream from gtamen yesterday).

 

This kind of racing is my cup of beer. Perfect for drunk driving. Just some crazy arcade fun. Good game.

And everything before, like flying bikes/cars didn't, lol.

 

Game sold out ages ago. Just making the most of it all before the bubble bursts or that next one comes and is that far from GTA.

So a crappy optional dlc on a 5 year old game brings out the same feelings to you as an actual person being raped live on stream? You need help dude.

 

And yes, there will be a gta 6 story mode and it will be amazing. Just trust me on this, ya Negative Nancy.

Do you guys think this will calm GTA free roam, or will this give all the try hards, and try hards in training easier access to o.p vehicles on the street. 

I tried making a poll on this and it wouldn't let me for some reason. 

But i hope this puts all the weopanized vehicle enthusuaist in one realm where they can fight each other on their terms and not a bunch of random grinders who want nothing to do with them. 

I hope. Lol

But knowing gta, the untested expierement known as online, everyone's going to be tumbling down the street in unrealistic war machines  trying to turn Los Santos into their own arena.

Usually I buy every outfit released.

But this time I just bought the monkey, REPUBLICAN SPACE RANGER, and a green alien suit. I might buy all the aliens if I manage to get the discounts but the clothing is ridiculously high priced!

 

I put those three as saved outfits.

 

 

Also the masks I wanted were too expensive for my taste. 😢

The spinning blades on the front of the 380 uppercut other vehicles - against motorbikes it's f*cking awesome.

 

This is starting to get confusing tho

I'm neither griefer nor tryhard and I think this mode sucks.

The new weaponized vehicles are worthless in free roam. The armor is purely for show outside of the Arena. All this does for those who wish to grief/troll with the new toys is expose them for the existing Deluxo/Op/OpMKII tryhards.

This has got to be the worst update ever for GTA Online.  Yet another blatant cash grab, paywall and Saints Row rip off.

 

After 5 years, it's time to pull the plug.

I, for one, like the update.

 

Sure, its progression system its horribly tedious and the prices are beyond stupid but the Arena War modes themselves are pretty fun! Same with the vehicles (PS: nerf the f*cking bike lol).

 

My favorite events are Carnage (even if mostly devolves into two bikes running in circles around each other), Wreck It, Hot Bombs and Game Masters (altough it can become boring sometimes).

This is always my favorite response from the kiddies..."if you don't like it, why are you here?".  I'm here because I got an e-mail from Rockstar bragging about their silly update so I logged onto GTAF and decided to see what the people still playing the game think of it.  Currently I'm playing Red Dead Redemption (not online) and you may not know it but there's a healthy bit of RDR info int the RDR section of this forum...we aren't all here all the time for the mess that is GTA:O...and here we are, a full 24 hours later following the release of the DLC and there are barely 3 pages of comments on the dedicated DLC thread...that may not say much for the overall player base but it does speak volumes about the GTAF player base...it used to be that these threads would be 10 pages long in a few hours with players seeking feedback, posting pictures and sharing tips and other discoveries about the update...and that's what I was dropping by to see.  And contrary to what you're seeing, I've seen a lot of negative feedback from players who are fed up with these type of updates and think that GTA should leave the silliness to Saints Row...they do it better.  It's a sad day when I have to agree that Saints Row is a better version of GTA but if this is what GTA wants to be...well...they don't do it as well as Saints Row...Now back to my RDR forums...PEACE!

Called it on day one.

These new vehicles do nothing to balance/unbalance the game in anyway. MkII /Jets are still top dog. Someone posted as well about "who the f*ck still fights on the ground these days?" Its all about flying bikes and tanks now and these new vehicles do nothing to change that.

AW should have come ages ago, before DDH when weaponized vehicles were just getting introduced.
