I agree with the micro transactions being pushed. The amount of copies GTA sold should be enough to let Rockstar know they made a great game...But no, they went and ruined themselves by making you play copious amounts of hours to get cool stuff unless you pay real money for fake money.
I thought the reason they added the micro transactions was so they could keep paying people to give the free updates to GTA Online.

The sales they got from the game have gone into getting the money back from what they spent making the game and also putting it into future projects like DLCs to make them the best they can be.

If they keep doing free updates for a while as well as DLC then I won't be complaining about micro transactions or how they nerfed missions because it doesn't really affect, me and I will be able to have more free content to play around with and therefore have more fun. However, if they stop the free updates within the next 2-3 months then I would say the micro-transactions were a money grab.

Think about it this way. If these free updates are going to keep happening for atleast another year then people need to get paid for giving them. Would you rather some random people spent their money on micro-transactions whereas you haven't or would you rather pay a yearly or monthly fee to be able to play online. We could have also had no updates but I want them as it makes the game more fun.

GTA Online is just a baby & watching it become the most amazing online experience ever is most of the fun for me! Be a productive member of GTA Online, report cheaters, offer suggestions to R*(gtaonline@rockstargames.com if the e-mail for ideas) to improve the game, support it & you will be rewarded with the largest & most diverse MP experience on console...

Honestly, I think the best option for Rockstar is this:
Reset GTA online back to it's original state from launch including recent additions, but do not reset player levels/money/purchased items. The only people who should be banned are those that exploit the LSC glitch and invulnerability hacks (throw them all into a Cheater's Pool if they want to use their hacks).

By doing that, players can choose if they want to replay the same mission over and over for quick money or easy RP. It's kinda unfair to new players if the payouts are constantly decreased, because the high-leveled players were able to exploit those methods beforehand and have a big advantage now that it takes longer for newbies to reach them.

Another thing they need to do is introduce a money pit. I've seen this idea floating around, and I think it's the best compromise to removing hacked money. If players could donate to cults or charities, they have the option to get rid of their hacked cash if they don't want it. Those who do want it can keep it; GTA Online's micro-transactions were not popular on launch day and never will be, so it's best if Rockstar just gives up trying to make even more money from the game.

To me, this seems like the best plan of action. I'm not saying Rockstar deserved to be hacked, but they have made a ton of mistakes with GTA Online. All they need to do is let people have fun playing their game without worrying about silly Bad Sport lobbies and pay-to-win cash cards.

Besides, having tons of money barely changes the game. You still need to level up and complete races to get the best weapons and car mods, so why ban those that simply received money?

I hate it when people use the 'pay to win' expression about micro-transactions.

It just doesn't make any sense at all...

What exactly do you 'win' by purchasing in game currency? Please tell me?

True. In GTAO, you can hardly call them Pay-To-Win cards.

Edit: I have a friend who is convinced they'll add Shark Cards that can boost your level. Example: $10 gets you 100 rank levels or something. I can't see it happening, but wouldn't be surprised if it did.

Well there is that whole "Freedom of Speech" thing, not sure if you live in the U.S.A. as this site has a diverse community, But anyways if that's 110% maybe they should look into some other field of employment. Feel free to show me where I was complaining

I couldn't agree more. Why do people say that?

Right, because possibly 1000's of awards, some of the most influential games of the last three generations, the biggest selling games of all time & a following that will preorder millions of copies isn't proof of quality right? Hackers can break any code if they want to, until it's stopped at the console like MS would like to do but backed out of this will be how MP games go...The SP experience is a 10/10 & the online is a bonus! I wasn't point to you or anyone specific but it seems the whole community is in an uproar over these hackers even though every damn MP game worth it's salt gets hacked but they all seem to forget the amazing 100 hour SP campaign they played.....

Take the modder's out of the mix, the online has been a bit of a train wreck from the start (in my opinion). I wouldn't call it a bonus? I've heard that before "You paid for the 1st disc the second disc was free". What? Is CoD online a bonus too? I guess if had one complaint it would be that it seems that there only concern is putting as much pressure as they can on people to buy the "Shark Cards". Do I think they should fix the modding problem? Of course. Does it affect me? Not really as I don't hang out in public lobbies/sessions. I think the uproar(from the community) is that for no fault of there own they might be banned. Make sense?


Peace on Earth to you my friend : )

I don't understand why you'd be upset about it having issues when R* specifically stated that GTA Online was something truly new & would have problems..The entire thing is a work in progress & if that's an issue for you then every single other game on console comes as it is & never, ever changes. People aren't getting banned though are they? I've got money & I'm not banned nor is anyone I know that was given money, only those abusing the system will be banned & Rockstar has that right, this is software after all(we don't own shit nor are we due anymore than they offer).

It's called arrogance and ignorance. I saw this happening months before. It's NOT like any other MP game no matter where you find similarities. That's just too much for some one-sided people to process.

Because it's NOT your "average" game.

^Nice Edit.

GTAO had more bugs, glitches, faults and exploits than your average multiplayer game on release. Anyone who can't see that, is obviously ONE-SIDED!
