Recommended Posts

ram_pete67

I have tons of blue tokens left to unlock the roles stuff. What you think ? can we use them at a later update probably again or just use them up now ?

I've unlocked everything I want from the Collector and Trader roles and there's very little I want to unlock from the Bounty Hunter role, so I'm already sitting on a big stash of blue chips, a stash which will only grow as I get through the last 12 Bounty Hunter ranks.

 

I'm just planning to sit on them, I'm not unlocking things I don't want for no reason, in the best case scenario we'll be able to use them to unlock future unlockables, worst case they will be useless, but I'll save what I have just in case.

I don't get why rockstar are making us deal with three different currencies now. In GTAO we just had the one. For a while now I haven't seen any point at all having both gold and dollars. Why not just have dollars and let people buy them just as they did in GTAO. Now we have the blue chips to add another level of complication.

Because you can't get in game currency <dollars> with real world currency.

But you can get gold with real world currency.  So R* has opened up a new revenue source because many folks today have more money to spend on the game they already paid for.  Micro transactions are the new things.. If you get 10 million people to think nothing of giving you a dime you have 1 million dollars. Multiply that by any number you like...

 

As for the 3rd option, blue chips. it makes sense to me to allow us the freedom to unlock our role development however we want instead of being strictly tied to role rank. I currently am ranking up in bounty hunter and earning blue chips in that I can spend to unlock my trader and collector items that I want.

 

We don't get to use gold or dollars to unlock them, we have to rank up at least one pursuit.

The blue chips, or as I call them - wild west bitcoins - are completely useless and are easily the stupidest addition with this update. Yeah, make a third currency I have to use just so I can unlock the ABILITY to PURCHASE a frickin' shovel for $350. Rockstar has lost their damn minds...

But why have gold and dollars? Why not just have dollars and let people buy them with real money - just like in GTA.

 

But to unlock something for a role you have to be a certain rank and have the (sometimes) blue chips. So you are still rank locked. And the blue chips aren't exactly hard to get. So I don't really see the point in them.

It is not really a currency, more like a skillpoint you can invest freely between the different classes. Only instead of 'skillpoint' it is a blue token.

 

In my opinion it works just fine. You can't buy your way to the top, you need to actually play all ranks and naturally become better than you were at first.

You'll find though that to unlock the higher tier Trader & Collector items - You'll still need to rank up in order to use those blue chips and unlock your items.

Being a rank 20 BH doesn't entitle you to rank 20 Trader items.

 

Therefore the blue chips are indeed a useless addition.

What makes them even more useless is that we seem to be able to earn more blue chips than we need to unlock everything.

 

What would have given them some worth would be earning less than the amount required to unlock all items, making players pick and choose. 

 

In either case, I'm not a fan, they seem like a pointless addition when level locks can achieve a similar result.

You earn the exact amount to unlock every item.

Well I only know because I just counted them lol. I had 84 tokens left and all unlocks equaled that.

I'd be less mad if they actually fit thematically but it just looks weird in the HUD.
