My bad the orbital canon is the Angry Finger of God

The Oppressor MK II are the flying cancer cells of GTA Online

And on PC (and PS4 to a lesser extent)...cheaters.

I accidentally loaded into GTA without starting up my port blocking app, so thought I'd enable passive and mod a car or two at LSC.

It was a small lobby and then some chat came up with one goof asking if anyone there was a modded, and if they were could they try to kick him, and how it wouldn't work, thereby bragging that he was a modder.

Now that's certainly something to be proud of.

A few minutes later while modding my F1 car, LSC turned all weird, some music started playing and then I got disconnected.

 

Well done 'DingoUwU' you've proved your a cheater.

Good job, asswipe.

What ruined a lot of it for me was the public lobby only businesses, even though there are work arounds.  The buying ammo off the menu along with the meme vehicles a sh*t ton of players asked for but none wanted homing rockets on everything.  The constant forced pvp and the lack of new meaningful content, you can only sell bunker or collect crates so many times before burnout not to mention the absolute sh*t deliveries of Mc businesses   Let’s not forget that when you are in the mood for some pvp it’s a try hard mk2 fest or the bst popping marksman dancers rolling around their sticky bombs, cuz ya kno tha kd/r goes on the resume.  But face it people things might pick up for next gen for both gta/rdr2 because we all know most will buy both games again, R* has done it before.

Rockstar should probably give us an ability to recruit/hire NPC bodyguards with perfect shooting accuracy to defend our cargo convoys/transport against griefers, so they can easily repel griefers even they're using Oppressor Mk.2.

I don’t understand how R* thought it was a good idea to add the mk2. It’s disgusting.

This is how R* came up with the Oppressor Mk II:

Public lobby businesses, business battles involving PVP or sale runs which require to co-op with friends for sale runs thus requiring them to be online with you.

 

Oppressor Mk II and the PVP are what killed it for me though, I mean I could kill players but there was only so much of it I could take it before I triggered frustration and no longer felt like playing!

 

It led to a greater good though because through my experiences with the game it made me understand I suffer from high blood pressure and have mild anxiety so stopping playing has helped me become more settled

in my real life again and improved my overall personality rather than being an enraged gamer hiding away his real problems, I still get the frustration with games from time to time but not in the same way I used to react. 🙃

Well ruined is a strong word.

I still play from time to time and I enjoy playing most of the time.

 

Lets just say the things that made experience a lot worse:

Broomstick MK2

Broomstick

Deluxo

Orbital Canon

explosive Sniper

explosive Shotgun

the still unpatched mission warp

the still bullsh*t suicide mechanics

the lack of armor and countermeasures on older planes and helicopters

the still tiny amount of flares (seriously 4 tiny a$$ flares every feew seconds when the attacker can pump out 10 missiles in the same time?)

I bet the Oppressor MK II and the flying missile cars gives you Vietnam like flashbacks of Robotnik's machines

I don't think anything has been "ruined" as such, just that it's much easier to talk about all the things we hate about life and GTA online in general instead of the more positive things.

 

A few years ago we didn't have casinos, but now we have this amazing extra location to enjoy, nor did we have nightclubs and resident DJs, nor arcades and retro fun and games, nor activities or any use for the Maze Bank Arena, the list goes on. I know, Rockstar add so much stuff that negates their hard work, plus the game is riddled with bugs, but the game is definitely not "ruined".

Well there's got to be a reason why a lot of people still play it.  One of my theories with some people is that they're Call of Duty refugees from when the series started losing sales and they brought in their cancerous, xenophobic, spray and pray, if it moves kill it mentality with them.

Simply got bored of it. Lol.

I don't like flying bikes and stuff like that, but if those were a real issue for me I would have stopped playing earlier.

That Casino, the amazing extra location to enjoy...It's really just an extra location to drain your time and cash

Oppressors and Deluxo.

 

SHOULD NEVER HAVE BEEN ADDED.

 

Oh, and the whole Arena Wars update, that was a good waste of 6 months of working on a new DLC.

Deluxo would have been fine had they not weaponized and made it fly. It’s definitely not what we asked for. But with them? They always do the f*cking opposite and idk why.

There were griefers since day one. They went about thier day as anyone else but when they needed to spawn kill and grief, they stole jets, buzzards and tanks and killed folk until they got killed themseves. Later as the game progressed, rockstar gave the option to buy your own jets and more powerful helicopters,  But at the same time gave us homing launchers and bulletproof cars. The griefers were about but easy to spot and not really a problem. 
 

next came a succesion of buisness updates. You payed a fortune for the buisness, a fortune for upgrades, slowly produced a product and then had to sell it in a public lobby. They put bright symbols on the map and alerts so everyone knew what you were up to and offered rewards to anyone who could destroy your plans.   But at about the same time, they introduced the mk1 oppressor. 
 

unlike any previous griefing tool. This was a personal vehicle, not something you would use for half an hour but instead use constantly. Another update and the deluxo came along. More of the same plus a passenger.

 

these vehicles were very expensive but every other video on YouTube used to boast about how to dupe them and glitch millions with garages of them, whilst at the same time, the players trying to make money legitimately found themselves plagued by them. Our efforts to make money the way rockstar intended was less important than us being cannon fodder for the oppressors and deliuxos.

 

 Just when it seemed it couldn’t get much worse. They brought out the mk2. The other two were bad but this was silly. Huge pay wall (But not a problem for the bored billionairre glitchers)

this could fly, hover in mid air, or over water, was (due to a glitch) the fastest mode of transport in the game) had missiles that could do 180 degree turns and still hit target, had chaff to stop you being able to hit it and if by some miracle you could shoot it down, you got a 20k bill

 

not every oppressor jockey is an arse, but it’s the obvious mode of personal transport for so many reasons.  Every lobby has 3 or 4 mk2 icons floating about and if you go so much as near them, they lock on to you, giving the rider the choice to kill you or not. Yet we are suposed to sell a weeks worth of invested product in these same lobbies, that’s what killed online

MkIIs don't kill players, angst riddled churlish douche nozzles with more money from mommy's credit card than sense kill players.

Nothing in particular. I simply

grew out of it and had more other things to do. I occasionally log back on but I dont play it nearly as much as I did at one point.

Yeah, I mean, the Oppressors would have been fine too had they not had weapons or flying capabilities. 😎

 

Jokes aside, in a way I appreciate that R* makes these nods to popular fiction - but these vehicles could have been airborne/weaponized within certain game modes and not in free roam (which also happens to be the only choice to spend time if you want to actually meet other people because there are no session choices because, well, Rockstar).

 

Nah. Putting those vehicles in the game was the weirdest design choice ever, imo. I still sometimes believe it was a mistake and with them being R* they couldn’t admit it and just decided to run with it.

Nothing has really "ruined" Online for me, per se, but the ease of availability for explosives and meme-mobiles definitely hampered my enjoyment for a bit. When I started I wanted to be down and dirty, run around with maybe a handgun and a carbine, but that changed when people started RPG spamming very quickly. 

 

I'm hoping GTA6 Online has a more "realistic" loadout system, maybe make it based off weight, and requires ammo to be purchased only at Ammu-Nation or, for an in-game fee, a personal weapons supply/supplier. At least for the first few years. Then bring out the OpMkII Classic once it's on its last legs.
