Dont think its a case of not many people playing online its what ever way rockstar have the servers sorted... Saying that tough i got into a free mode last night that was full! Would be nice if rockstar released a triple xp thing so some of us could get the wanted achievement before V comes out or even have xp be acquired in free mode for blowing up cars, parachuting, killing other players etc...

I agree. I've struggled to find players in playlists other than free roam. :/

I'm trying to get the MP and AWP, but if you're up just for some casual playing online, hit me up. But if you want players for cheevs, best bet is the Trading Thread itself .

Usually races are still pretty full, which is unfortunate because that's where you have to spend the most time boosting for AWP. Other gametypes will still give you trouble finding a game though, but at least it'll be easier if you're boosting.

Does anyone know what the server plan is for this game? Are they leaving these servers up even with the release of GTAV? I hope so because I just have a few achievements left and I hope they won't pull an EA type shit with shutting them down. Thanks!

Me too, except I need most of the online achievements, think I'm only level 5 or 6(could actually be lower,lol). If you want you can add me and we could give each other a hand.

This! The game just isn't fun when you have opponents who cheat. The last time I when on GTA IV was about 3 months ago it was full of modders it's almost unplayable.

The game is still massive in free mode and a few other modes. People rarely play the modes listed above because the only reason people played them at all was for the achievements, and so long after a game has been out the people who still play it don't care for achievements, they just play it for fun.

Not all modders are dicks, though. I've played with about 30 modders in the last week and only one of them used the mods to ruin the game for others. By ruin I mean make himself invincible, give himself a weapon set and then kill everyone. Luckily, he didn't have any other mods, so when I tried to kick him (not a good idea, never try to kick a modder, a few reason being that they might freeze you, put you in a hippo suit or crash the game, constantly teleport you, burn you to death every time you spawn, send trucks to spawn on you and crush you every time you stand up, have prostitutes stuck on your character so when you try to aim you constantly aim at the prostitute, the list goes on) everyone else voted to kick him too.

There are two kinds of modders. Not all of them do it to piss people off.

Modders have ruined just about every mode on MP for this game. I even tried free roam a little over a week ago. It was fun until all of us died at once after being set on fire. I'm just driving around and poof, I'm on fire in the car and die. Obviously someone who has that kind of control tells me I don't need to be in rooms like that, but it's all over the place now. Some modders can make it fun, but most just ruin the game for the rest.

I've never been randomly set on fire like that before (along with anyone else) and it shows just how much worse it's gotten.

@ Total Shinobi Completely agree and never came across some of that stuff, thankfully. Too bad there weren't separate servers for modders.

Freemode only

You didn't find anyone because at this point the only thing people play now is freemode and deathmatch

I am talking about boosting races with my friend from Boston, so no one really plays standard races and GTA races?? We used to have to try and get on at like 2 AM before just so people wouldn't join our match.

I went into free roam the other day with some friends, got to the airport & someone had modded a skate-park in the middle of the runway, so yeah I think modders run rampant in this now...had a mate who went online by himself a few days ago & he said that when he joined a server he got the Wanted achievement after killing one person...lucky bugger

Had no problem the last day or so finding people online, it's just getting people to "ready up" that's the issue. I don't know why they instituted such a mechanic for starting online games, it's just stupid. Played a few games on free roam, pretty awesome when you have six guys shooting each other with rocket launchers.
