I'm a little butthurt that there is no way to quickly replay a story mission without having to go through a bunch of loading/clouds, etc.

Half way through a replay mission, it would be nice to just hit pause and restart mission. Some times it quicker to get the gold objectives than the loading screen cycle.. And you know what they say about untreated butthurt, it can lead to hurtbutt. Which I hear is much worse..

This is absolutely the worst feeling when going for the gold medals in each mission. I also wish there were better tracking of it, such as a timer or accuracy display so you know if you pass/fail before having to play the entire mission.

Yeah, didn't think I was the only one who felt this way. You can deal with it, but damn, it gets old quick. At least you don't have to do everything on the checklist in one go.

Edit: It's kinda funny. During the load times, I almost always peruse the GTA forums. Hence me posting every few minutes through out the day.

Now that the online has been somewhat cleaned up, the only beef I have with it is user created deathmatches. They are nothing but tank bitches and no way to blow them up, are all that's getting picked at the moment and its ruining the game mode in my opinion.

That really is a triathlon for your hands, almost 30 minutes of button bashing.

Someone sent me over $500,000,000 awhile ago and now I'm trying to get rid of them because it's no longer fun to make money. Now I don't know how to get rid of them and it's not even letting me share the money with my friends. The only way to get rid of them is by setting bounties and calling merryweather for different type of things. And I don't know if I could use them because I don't to get in to trouble from Rockstar.

Word is you can freely spend it but not "re-gift" it if you know how

I would just buy the most expensive vehicles and destroying em I guess :/

Like to kick members FROM your crew? Dissension among the ranks? O.o

Also, you'd be better suggesting that to R* Support than an achievement forum

That could be said for most any game haha. Obviously if it launched with Heists for Online, it would make a lot of people happy on general principle but there would surely be bugs galore. Then the slew of people impatiently trying to launch it creating more gumming of the works. The impatience factor and lack of variety in the average gamer today is astounding and sad.

Nahw only one cheater/modder/hacker who thinks he can get the #1 spot on your crew-leaderboards with only 2 days of gameplay but with 22+ million RP, yeah right. Happened from one day to the other while I checked the leaderboards.

Also there is already one on-going matter in the support section, already replied to them!

Currently TrueAchievements cause I got tired playing with the x36a (x360a) tag and I got promoted to Commisioner, that's why.

Agreed man well frankly I'm more looking forward to any story DLC than additional multiplayer missions.

Well Heists wouldn't be additional as they were meant to launch with it but I am on both sides. New implementations and modes for the MP could give it the necessary boost for improvement. So long as there's a fresh and palatable way to make (decent) constant RP & $.

Ooh! Promoted! I still run around with some old Max Payne crews and friend crews. Gotta say, the crew hierarchy thing is a great addition to the social club. Wish they had it during previous R* titles.

Mainly just give you a fancy 'crew nick name'. If you're right near the top, you can kick members and such. It's a nice feature, but doesn't do a lot. Still glad it's there than not

So sick of this shit now...

Ever since 1.09, nobody does anything but crappy deathmatches and races. I've literally sat for 5 minutes trying to get people to join a mission and there aren't any takers. Several times people pop up as "joining" only to leave within seconds.

This is massively frustrating because I admittedly suck at PVP and races. I still haven't won a race in which people didn't let me win and I haven't been on a winning team in a deathmatch because I die more than anyone else (we're talking something like 10 deaths in a 30-kill match).

For the very first time in the history of my playing console games I took a chance at online, hoping that I'd get a 1000 gs in a game with a competitive online component. Looks like level 100 will always be elusive unless I grind out levels for the next few months/years. The player base has diminished except for shitheads who want to do nothing more than grief others. Even the people I was leveling with have disappeared or left me in the dust because they only do deathmatches too.

I wish R* hadn't nerfed this game into the ground for the sake of microtransactions. Looks like I'm moving on to something else for my (nearly) first online 1000 gs.


EDIT: In addition to all of this, I've spent the last two hours soloing missions and races and I'm down $5000 from when I started because of the need to buy ammo. Damn, this sucks now. I even blew open two armored trucks that literally dropped NOTHING.

I just noticed I only have 500,000 in my bank account now. >_>

Before 2 hackers sent me money, I was just over $ 2,000,000+
After the 2 hackers sent me money, I had over $ 500,000,000+
Just today when I checked, $ 500,000

Retarded!

Quoted for lots of truth!

The online needs a serious overhaul. Needs to be made more payout friendly, because, like you said it's just turning people off that have that rank 100 achievement so far off in the distance it's almost hard to see.

If you want to grind a simple online mission Pot Shots is really easy if you use a car to stop the van from crossing the bridge in the beginning of the mission. On Hard you get like 1400 RP and $7000 and when you get decent at it, you can complete in like 4 minutes, so that's like over 20k per hour. I know it's nowhere near the old Criminal Records method, but it's better than nothing and is pretty easy to complete on your own.

That's exactly what I've been doing! Twice, though, another person joined before I could turn off matchmaking, and both of those times wound up as mission failures because the other player purposely botched the entire mission. Both of them were level 70+ so I can't imagine how they could have been so inept as to screw up the mission accidentally, especially when I can solo it in less than 4 minutes.

How could I not overcome their screw-ups enough to beat the mission when I can solo it? Well, that's just HOW FAR they took their sabotage. One person - I shit you not - blew up the van with a sticky bomb. The other was shooting at ME, which forced me into the open where I was twice gunned down by the gang members. Once I became a spectator, I watched that person let the van go and then square off against as many gang members he could hold off until he died. I watched that crap for 8 minutes just so I wouldn't get a bad sport hit for leaving a mission. Why on earth would people do crap like this?! It's why I said in my previous post that the game has pretty much been left to the griefers after 1.09.

In any case, I hate whining and bitching about stuff, so I found another solution. A Social Club user created an RP grind race that you can do solo and earn good RP each time. So I rubber-band my controller and let it go while I do other stuff. I've gained 13 levels in the last 24 hours: 39 to 52. It doesn't pay as much as Potshot - only $2078 per 4:30 run - but it's easy money considering I'm not even touching the controller. The rest of my time I spend doing Potshot for money.

No, I'm not proud of this method of grinding, but like I said before, I'd rather DO something rather than bitch about something. Rockstar's constant nerfing of RP and payouts, and the resulting decline of a mature** player base, drove me to this as a viable solution. I WANT to co-op some missions, but co-op bit the dust now that missions aren't viable sources of RP or income. Now the majority of other players are of the "if it moves, kill it" mentality. They don't want to cooperate in any way, shape, or form.


**I use the term "mature" to infer the players' mentality, not their age. I've played quite a lot with a 9-year-old who I consider much more mature than the garden-variety, tweaked-out, trigger-happy morons who now infest this game.
