GTA Online Sessions always dead

Recommended Posts

Strider_Core

Not sure if its because I am only rank 11 and maybe its matching me with folk that are the same rank or whatever , but most of the sessions I've been in lately have been dead. Beginning to think I missed the hype train that was GTA Online and thats a bit of a shame as I used to play a fair amount on my old PS3 before it got fried and I upgraded. Does anyone know if its bad luck or what?

Cheers in advance

Whenever I go on it's a crapstorm of crazed vindictive psychopaths. Be careful what you wish for.

It's been 50/50 for me. Sometimes I get these empty sessions where there's 3 people at most and sometimes I get our classic sessions full of tryhards and screaming children.

 

I admit though, these empty sessions are new for me and I was wondering if something was wrong with my connection.

If you are in a empty session, you are blessed. Most of us dream of empty sessions, but are forced to create one all the time.

Lobbies aren't separated by rank or dlc, a level 1 with nothing can easily be placed in the same lobby as a level 1000 with everything.

 

The only thing that do separate lobbies is aim settings which must be changed in story mode.     The game is set to auto-aim by default so the largest population of players will probably be there.    So if you are on free-aim, then change your setting.

 

Of course you could just be unlucky and logging on at a time of day most other people are busy.   Or maybe there is a issue with your internet settings?      Could be any number of things.

What do you mean "dead". Empty? Or full of people doing nothing. I have no problem finding full sessions (with at least 3 Mk2 griefers), you probably have a crap connection. It's nothing to do with your rank.

Yeah this ^ People dont seem to want to play through Missions unless it gets them 3x cash or RP so your kind of left to just do stuff yourself and leave a vast amount of the missions undone. It sucks because the only reason I came back to GTA Online is because of the new heist stuff and ive barely seen any of them 

Pretty sure I did change my aim settings so I am gonna change it back to default and see if I get anywhere. Thanks dude

Give me a nice quiet lobby over a 30 player sh*tstorm any day.

Peacefully selling stuff from my nightclub warehouse or being spammed by jets, Oppressors, orbital cannons and explosive snipers while receiving a steady stream of insulting text messages. Hmmmm. Tricky one...

A few things to check for, maybe because you've been on such a layoff you could of over looked.  

 

One is the targeting mode.  Make sure your in Partial Aim or Full Aim.  Most players are always in those type of lobbies.  

2nd is to check your connection.  Nat setting to see if your running at full speed if your on wireless.  

 

That is about it really.  I have been always getting full lobbies on X1, and I know the PS4 is got a bigger community.  Don't worry the Hype train is still going man.  This game is addicting.   One good DLC and everyone jumps back on it again.  I think the only thing that will kill it is GTA 6.

Not just you--I've been getting dropped into my own public session more frequently of late without even trying.

 

But that said, I end up in plenty of other session sizes: 20-something players, 10+ players, the whole nine yards.

 

Still plenty of cheating douches on the PC, but that's nothing new...

Yup that's exactly my current situation, however, I won't complain and I'll just take it.
