PC Release = Hackers = Less Content

Recommended Posts

djb204

Hackers will effectively reduce the amount of content we will receive in the long run. Rockstar will be forced to use its resources to address these issues that commonly arise  on PC. We are already seeing hackers interfering with the Online experience of other players, and this will either hault content production, or at the very least slow down development progress due to resources being focused on these issues. I’m sure we would all prefer more content more regularly, but the affect hackers will have on future content will be evident.

I don't think this will be the case. PC will just be its own wild west for hackers, R* will turn a blind eye and continue making content knowing that majority of the playerbase is on console and isn't affected by them.

And how did you come up with this conclusion? The team they have to develop content, don't go after hacks and patch things.

it will be as it has been..,

R* will handle it..,

some will find ways around it..,

we'll get people that complain.., people that support..,

those that troll..,

and the occasional ape that will try to use it as away to waste on the PC platform just to up their false sense of platform superiority..,

[PC's and Consoles have their ups and downs.., but there will always be those who will still need to fill their emptiness by wasting on Tue other like kids..,]

 

R* will find ways to deal with it.., until they get more permanent solutions.., or take a massive hit due to lack of them that work..,

 

all we can to is to roll with the punches..,

and become immune to those that cheat..,

no better way to break them by making their efforts pointless if it doesn't affect your enjoyment..,

I don't think it slowed content being added to GTA:O, and feel it won't here either.

 

GTA:O had so much of this stuff happen along the way on old gen and PC and continues to thrive. Hopefully R* do more with these issues in future, but I don't feel it'll hamper them if they only do as much as they did for GTA:O on PC again which would be a shame to see.

maybe if rockstar had a functional anti cheat like almost every other game developer on pc this wouldn't be a problem, but i don't think this is the case, i think the problem is gta online. it will always be the older, bigger and more profitable brother, so red dead will ultimately get less content in favour of gta online

Rockstar themselves decided on P2P with almost zero anti-cheat measures. They made their bed.

With PC as it was/is with consoles, whenever any fixes come, it will be too little, too late.

For example, with GTA V:

Changing passive mode cool down time drastically
Changing suicide queening time drastically
Banning modded-level accounts

It's all too little too late. By the time they get around to "fixing" anything, the damage and pain and suffering and permanent destruction to the online community has already taken too much of a toll.

The fact that there are still level 8000 degenerates on GTA V is inexplicable and unforgivable.

Rockstar online games are like Facebook --- no matter how good the content or ideas are, it's completely f*cking ruined because anybody can use it. Facebook was good when only people from respectable universities had access. Rockstar should limit online play to only the best and brightest. The democratization of online gaming is the problem.

I encourage Rockstar to implement more fascist approaches to securing their galaxy.

You should have to scan your ID (to make sure you're of legal age) and have to take an intelligence and ethics test before being allowed to play a Rockstar game.

Alas, Rockstar online games:
You will never find a more wretched hive of scum and villainy.

Sadly there is "morons" among the legal (18+) playerbase too...🙄

Don’t care. It is very rare, in my experience. And I’m pretty sure this goes for the majority of the player base.
