Arena wars b and m

Sick of getting stuck in lobby screens where there is always that one person with no rank who is perpetually "joining," but never does, and as a result the match never starts until the idiot host has to be told to boot him. Happened to me so many times this week, why can't these guys be auto-kicked after 2 minutes of inactivity.

Happens to me alot too. While the player is still joining the host does not have the option to kick him so if it happens everyone is just screwed.

You can message the guy and say "you're bugged out, restart" ;)

Playing Flag Wars. 'XXxxXXxxXX Exploded You'

 

With what? Force of will? Simply being on top of me? I have twin 50.Cal machine guns firing straight into him and he's resting on the spinning blade but he's able to explode me 5 times without taking any damage Fu*k Off. Then you tell me I'm a bad sport for leaving your sh*tty badly balanced job? Get to f*ck,

There's a lot they could do to improve Arena Wars:

 

  • Change: Fixed ammount of AP per Tier
  • Change: AP awarded at the end of each Round
  • Change: Instead of RNG rewards, 1 Tier Point to redeem on an Arena War unlock (excluding Tiers with fixed rewards) Some unlocks have pre-requisite unlocks: Unlock the Trade Price first to then unlock the vehicle's mods. Unlock Boost/Jump 20% to unlock Boost/Jump 60%, etc
  • Fix: Spectator Event puts you into Spectate for a recently started Match/Round 1
  • Fix: Join Next Mode From Spectator Box doesn't default to Join after a load screen, after selecting to Join Round 
  • Change: When Joining a round from the Spectator Box, the player can select a vehicle
  • Change: Increase Kinetic Grenade Launcher damage so the damage per second is equal to the .50 Cal Machine Gun
  • Change: Purchased Arena Vehicle Weapons remain unlocked once purchased. Can swap out owned weapons at the start of a match for no additional cost
  • New Feature: Can enter the Arena Interiors and Spectator Box in Free Roam
  • Change: Arena Tier Reward Vehicles are unlocked as Personal Vehicles and can be claimed via Arena Wars/San Andreas Super Autos/Warstock Cache and Carry websites
  • New Feature: Apocalypse, Future Shock and Nightmare versions of the Arena Tier/Skill reward vehicles

 

There's a few more, but I don't remember what they were.

I think this was intentional. If players could just stay in the spectator box then more people would be grinding the roulette wheel than actually playing the Arena War.

It's bugged. When I first started playing it remained set to Don't Join. Since I was interested in playing the round, and not playing the Arena War Wheel at the time, I selected to Join the Round. After that the option now defaults to Join. I now have to set it back to Don't Join everytime I join the Box. (Assuming I didn't get stuck in a round with a default vehicle becuase the Round ended as I was joining the box)

 

If Rockstar didn't intend for players to join the Spectator Box and stay between rounds, they wouldn't have added that option in the first place.

Actually i did more AP on the Wheel as in the Arena.

And not really for much money spent.

 

So the Casino is finally Opening Soon? 😄

Ugh... How many pieces of clothing are there? I'm at Tier 75 and here's what I have to show for it:

 

  • Pegasus Vehicles: 3
  • Vehicle Trade Price unlocked: 0
  • Boost upgrades unlocked: 0
  • Jump upgrades unlocked: 0
  • Mines unlocked: 0
  • Vehicle Armor upgrades unlocked: 0
  • Masks I'm interested in unlocked: 0
  • Clothing I'm interested in unlocked: 0

 

At this point, I think I'm done with this update. GR Research wasn't as bad, becuase we could at least play other modes while the RNG did it's thing. I'd rather save my money and hope the next update is better than waste it on inflated "Buy Now" prices. Or waste time on an uphill RNG grind that gets longer with each new tier...

 

Sadly I fear this is Sarwar's new shtick going forward for future updates in 2019:

 

  • Casino Update: Casino Tiers and Casino Points with RNG unlocks or spend double to "Buy Now"
  • Street Racing update: Street Tiers and Street Points with RNG unlocks or spend double to "Buy Now"
  • Law Enforcement/Police/Vigilante Update: Law Enforcement/Police/Vigilante Tiers and Law Enforcement/Police/Vigilante Points with RNG unlocks or spend double to "Buy Now"
  • Naval Update: Navy Tiers and Navy Points with RNG unlocks or spend double to "Buy Now"

 

*shudders* Hopefully this new approach for GTA:Online isn't part of their big plans for GTA's future. Or worse, come to think of it... I hope they're not attempting to ease the GTA:Online player base into having both the old Shark Cash Cards system + the new "Unlock It Now for ??? <insert new premium currency name>" system from RD:Online. Time Saver microtransations + Premium Currency microtransations = GTAV/Online deleted

I'm more annoyed than I should be about buying an underground garage without realising I didn't even need it as the workshop comes with storage already. It wasn't even that expensive but I'm still mad that it wasn't made more clear that storage was already included. Perhaps I should've done more due diligence.

 

Now I have yet another empty garage in the mechanic's request menu.

Can't even join this sh*t. Blurred Arena shot is a nice change from clouds though.

The Deathbike is a piece of sh*t. I don't even feel like playing any of the arena modes because of it.

The worst part of Arena Wars matches is that we have to sit and wait for 1 minute and 30 seconds or so because people take FOREVER to decide what car to use

 

IS IT THAT HARD TO JUST READY UP? TOO COMPLEX AND COMPLICATED FOR THEIR LITTLE BRAINS?

Smh this too. I've gotten so used to browsing my phone while waiting I almost forgot it was an actual issue.

So this one guy leaves at the loading screen when the match is about to begin and he leaves the job, I get kicked from it. Then I have to suffer from a negative point?!! 

 

Yeah I've been moaning about that on wrong thread. Stupid as the only way to get skill lvl 20 is boosting or taking a noob on a hot bomb 1v1 and still being lucky with it. I got upto lvl 8 and then as you say someone quits in lobby screen and it drops your level like a loss.

 

Also they need to fix fkkin war wheel. Takes so long to spin if a game suddenly ends you lose the 5k and the rewards. I've lost quite a few AP boosts - not impressed

Anyone notice on the wheel you are landing on AP much less than yesterday?

I cant imagine they changed it to make it even harder.

We could have gotten a Patriot Classic with no stock version, only Arena Contender versions.

This mode gets boring fast, especially if you have no incentive to play. I don’t want to buy whatever facility they’re trying to force on me. The capture the flags modes are flawed, the maps are too small, no way to steal flags, it’s just a race to beat the clock tbh.

I made the same mistake, was thinking of starting a PSA thread to share this but wasn't sure if I am the only one who will make this mistake.

We know that R* won't do sh*t until the next update (unless it concerns Shark Card sales), and even then they won't do sh*t to balance the game as evidenced from all the past update's "fixes". The only thing we can try is having a lot of people sending the above quoted suggestions to mouth-off ASAP.

I fear they'll be using this "RNG unlock system or f*ck you and pay double cuz hurr durr Shark Cards" system for the next year or two.
