That sucks. It seems that it saves what you don't want it to save and vice versa. Mine managed to stay from last night (just finally checked) so I have three Platinum awards now. Just doing missions to rank up more, probably going to go through the easy Platinums here in a bit.

I was wrong about some of these awards. Silver for 'Pistol Whipped' requires 100 kills, so I can only assume Platinum is at least 500 or 1,000. Christ.

Have to agree it's never been properly used in games. Neither has "penalizing" for leaving early or idling. I can understand penalizing for people doing it constantly but the random person who has to answer the door or their internet goes down gets a negative rep, banned from game for x time and so on.

The power to the player is never in it's right. Players seem to direct how games are developed with shit "criticism and whining" while the players are at liberty play "Warden" with the others and expect everyone to be civil? Its just sad.

Yep. It's absurd. I played Counter-Strike: GO on the Arcade for a good while, but I always played with bots. Tried online one time, and I was 11-0 and just randomly got kicked. Playing the objective, getting kills, and they vote to kick me. First and last time I ever played online on that game.

I despise the cops online for this game. I'm doing a mission by myself where I have to stop a guy driving a Coquette and retrieve it. I got a wanted level because I tried to shoot and kill him (some missions grant wanted levels, others don't, for some reason), and the entire time, I'm chasing him down the highway, almost reach him, a cop magically appears in front of me, reads my movements, hits me, and I flip a bunch off the road. Car gets fucked up, so I pursue the Coquette again, and at least seven or eight times in a row, I almost reach him, and the same goddamn thing happens again. It's so irritating, I cannot stand it.

I was doing one earlier also and the care blows up really easily unlike in singleplayer. But right now I can't even connect to the cloud service so I'm waiting a bit and trying again.

But I also read a loading screen tip and it said if you don't play as your character for however long his skills will start to degrade.

As if there aren't enough things hindering quality progress in this game. It's bad for those who can't even join and play - or just have their progress wiped - and it's bad for us who can play because nobody plays the missions. I'm sitting here trying the one mission I currently have, but it's too hard to complete by yourself, and nobody will join.

Rockstar hyped us with the online trailer and EVERYONE bought it for the MP experience. We had two whole weeks to play SP and by now everyone should've finished the story. Sure it is fun to ride through the areas but it's even more fun online. The free roaming in RDR was more fun with friends than alone.

Rockstar delayed the game 3 months and the online was supposed to start 2 weeks later. More than enough time to fix any issues. But hey, we weren't able to take pictures for almost one week because the Rockstar servers and cloud was fucking busy all the time.

I got one day off tomorrow and left work early. For what? To read that the damn cloud server is busy? Rockstar can do better. It's not like they're surprised with the amount of copies sold. And I read on FB and another forum that the PS3 servers work fine.

People should be able to trade the game back in because the online function is not available and the packaging clearly states that the online part is part of the purchase. It's written in big leters all across the back of the case.

I don't want to play other games. I want to play GTA V that I paid hard earned money for. And Rockstar is to fucking stupid to set up some servers. Can't be that hard. A week ago they bragged about delivering an expandable online experience with changing stuff. All I see is a god damn loading screen and error messages about the stupid cloud being busy.

If you were to marry your perfect 10 and left at the altar you'd smack the fucker in the face that suggests that you settle for a fat and ugly bish. Rockstar fucked up, you can't deny it. They don't deserve a special treatment just because it is GTA V. Like I said before, I can play Halo and CoD day 1 without any issues (not that I want to, but it is possible).

It's a shame that Rockstar let us gamers down. I just want to enjoy my day off and play GTA V online.

My latest complaint ... the cloud appears to be down, so I can't retrieve my level 12 character. I sure hope I didn't lose my character.

You need a better source of information, the PS3 version seems to have way more problems than the Xbox 360 version where multiplayer is concerned. I've yet to get past character creation and judging from the conversation on the sister site, I'm not alone.

I assume as with everything else online thats a server problem spawning things?

Sadly, I won't be surprised if you do. It's happened to quite a few people already.

Same here, I've been trying for a while now and it's still down and I was just on a bit ago. Usually I get the ( X ) button so I can just press it and retry but it's really down for me.

Yesterday, after I took a break, I had lost a few levels from my character, my bank account was zeroed out, and I had lost my default car that supposedly had a functioning tracker in it.

Since it appears the cloud servers are down for many others, I'm optimistic that my character is still alive and will be available once they comeback online.

I love this thread. A lot.

Firstly, It's reassuring to know that i'm not alone.

And secondly, Some of you should be grateful that weren't born before the internet was cheap enough for every home to own lol. At least we can share our troubles/fixes with each other these days.

Or before multiplayer was even an option.

I've lost so much money trying to survive a gang attack and get ten kills. I've gotten ten kills (counted), killed everyone, escaped the cops, and nothing. I can only assume I'm doing the wrong thing, and the Gang Attack is something else entirely. I'm tired of losing money. I had $40,000, trying to save up to get a place, and I'm down to $29,000 now. You make no money online yet you lose a lot for dying.

Don't worry. He'll love the game again once he gets in. They all usually tend to pull their foot out of their mouth once things start going their way and they realize it was out of their hands. Forgive and forget seems to only work for gamers when the get what they want given exactly when they want it.

I can understand the frustration that we've waited two weeks and the shit doesn't work for most people, but all you can do is give it time and continue to try.

Sorry guys, I'm not allowed to complain anymore. Apparently, my difference in opinion with the people incessantly bitching is forbidden amongst other gamers.

So, while the idiots continue to bitch none stop about the tiniest things, I have to agree with them or say nothing.

Also, I don't say anything positive so fuck the Encyclopedia, all the help I've given in multiple threads, my contributions to guides, and fuck this forum. Later.

It's a bitching thread, who says you can't disagree?

The online cops in this game are a joke. Their cars are faster than anything you can steal or purchase, and they're like tanks: one rear-end smash, and you're off the road, flipping.

I've got very little to complain about the SP, I will tell you my few niggles when I'm a bit calmer. But at the moment I've got a huge bitch about GTA:Online.

First of all well fucking done R*, release the MP once everybody has finished the story and everybody wants to get onto the MP, that was fucking absolute genius move. Then who the FUCK thought it was a smart idea to charge people for the pleasure of dying. Seriously a game like this and they charge you if you die, I didn't mind the whole concept of being killed and if you were carrying cash you would loose it, but to have it in your bank account and still loose a chunk for some arsehole shooting you as you walk out shop(which I would like to add, well fucking done to R* for making it so we can't defend ourself coming out of a shop as we can't equip a weapon), getting a car for a mission and as far as I can tell you even get charged for dying in TDM and stuff

I've had about 3 of my Characters vanish, which is a real bummer, but John Marston is my dad so hey ho!

A trick for keeping hold of all your money so your not charged on death, is spend all that you own in the stock market, I did this a lot in SP when messing around, so I can only imagine it would work in MP, well I'd hope.
