I have every single vehicle...I kinda want to unlock the tractor but the AP required for each rank goes up at least by 10 every rank...so by the time you get to 1000 the length of time for each rank up is going to be incredible. Theres no way youd be able to get it. Im at rank 400 and Ive been playing GTA Online for 5 years. If its comparable I dont know how long it realistically would take.

What is max skill level? And do you get anything for getting it up?

For each Skill Rank you get, you get a Platinum Award. Once you reach Skill Level 20, which is the maximum Level, you will unlock the ability to purchase the Go Go Monkey Blista as a reward.

 

Please note that Arena Points (AP) and Skill Level (SL) is not the same stat.

You mean I'm going to have to FIND somebody to help me reach 20? *sigh*

Well looks like I'm never getting the Blista. :/

I've been posting Heists ads since 2015 and never get responders so I doubt this'll be different

ikr! It's like going to your favorite restaurant and ordering your favorite dish so they serve you the same plate you had the first time you ate there.... literally the same plate with petrified bones and fuzzy moldy potatoes.

It's worse: you previously have to pass a tedious exam ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

Can you really start a thing with only 2 people? I haven't been paying much attention to the player count

From @irish.chr, @WildBrick142 and I's experience, it takes a while, but not that long. If you're on a winning Streak, your Skill Level may jump a level or two. But according to Irish, his Skill Level got decreased by 3 whole levels when he got 2nd place in a race. 

I highly suggest we should find partners to grind to Level 20.

Looks like it. If anyone interested in doing it on PC, PM me here or on Steam/SC (my name there is the same).

This is gonna be crazy. I'm AP level 14 after yesterday's fun, and hit skill level 2 at one point. But with 11 wins, 11 losses, 38 kills, and 38 deaths. I'm skill level 1.

 

Crikey!

The wheel is good for AP. I did like 10 jobs and AP was 24. I just killed myself and played the wheel while others raced. Still need to find a faster way lol

AP will just grow and not drop I believe, it's the skill level I want and if as above, we lose skill for even 2nd place, to grind it is gonna be hard-core as we'll literally have to keep winning until it pops, and of course, keep losing to return favour.

 

Madness, lol.

 

(Unless I misunderstood things of course).

Since you can do these races with just two players, I wonder if the following method will work? Start up race, invite one friend. As soon as the race starts have your friend quit out. Repeat the process. Wonder if this will get to skill level 20 quickly

Your friend will end up in bad sport before you reach skill level 20 lol You can just start the race, kill him and you get a win.

Took me about 4 hours to reach level 10, though I did die a couple times by accident Im up to 50 wins. Im gonna try to do another 50 and see where I end up.

Really is becoming a real joke TBH.

 

15 wins/17 losses now. Went up to level 2, back down to level one.

 

It is proving impossible to progress when not grinding with a buddy. R* either slipped up here...

 

...or they are being very deliberately c*ntish with this. (And as shown by @StangOne50, even grinding is horrendous).

 

My thoughts, it's the latter!!!

Wait, so when in a race with just 2 players, if one dies, the other wins without needing to finish all laps?

I think so. A couple times both got first place but yea if he dies you get a win.

 

It took me 12 wins to go from skill 10-11 and 15 wins to go from skill 11-12 wtf.. It just dont seem possible without boosting. Even then who the hell is gonna let you win 100 or 200 races in a row! lol Maybe other modes give more skill idk, there must be more to it.

Has anyones skill gone up in any other modes? Is there even another race mode besides wreck it? Havent tried them all yet.

Maybe it's so slow because it's only 2 players. But are there other modes where you get to use the spinning wheel? I want to get all the platinum awards before the skill lvl ones. So I gotta spin the wheel a few times first. Looks like I have to join a race with randoms and kill myself right away.

Are you saying we need to win rounds or matches? Like to get to 4 we need to win 4 rounds of any game mode or win 4 full matches?

***THIS COMMENT IS INCORRECT, rounds does NOT work. Keeping it for archive reasons.***

 

Rounds. Four rounds = four wins.

 

 

Edit: Gamemode does not play a role, but you have better chances of winning Team-based Wars, compared to Last Man Standing wars.

Is the Go Go Space Monkey Blista a Personal Vehicle or Pegasus? I used to have it in 2015 before they blacklisted it and would be heartbroken if they turned it into a Pegasus Vehicle.
