Hmmm. If they're shutting down for Maintenance, I'd like to hope it's for their starting to integrate Heists Online.
Nothing officially announced other than the downed servers at the times.
Back to How To Survive it seems

Well damn, now I don't have an excuse not to work .

I hope it's for something worth it. Removing hacked cash, prep for an update, cool new feature, etc.. I guess we will find out soon enough.

Hopefully when it comes back online, everyone's inflated wallets should be back to normal. If they can shut out the DNS issue once and for all, that would be nice too.

Let's hope it is heists. Getting a bit bored with the available missions as it is. And yeah, it would be nice to see modded money gone for good too.

While I'm convinced it's money removal and possibly more anti cheat/mod/hacking measures, I'd prefer it to be heists!

Hey, don't worry. Two days from now there will probably be another, if not the same money exploit happening and you will get all you money back again. I want to see if they take away all the ill gotten RP from those exploitable missions too.

I didn't partake in those shenanigans. At rank 215 I didn't see the point. Had I been close to 1000 I would have went for the max (rank). Do I dare ask if you got there? lol And yeah, give it a few hours and someone will come with a mod where your car blows hundy dollar bills out the tail pipe.

Chilled, you can ask anything you want. I fell short of 1000 intentionally. Don't want to make it that obvious with a 4 digit rank. I think my highest character is 996. They really should remove all the ill gotten RP/Rank Levels along with the 'cash fix'.

I really doubt it's heists. Maybe they are doing the reasonable thing, fixing the major issues first. Patch 1.09 was to fix more exploits, so now this only seems right to be removing the money, since the patch itself didn't do that. I'm not expecting heists anytime soon, but would be greatly surprised by tomorrow night if that's what this is for. I just wonder how much they will remove. I guess I'll have to ask my friends, since I wasn't one to get the $$$ and spend it on so much.

Now, if only they showed the same attention to GTA IV, that games online wouldn't be as messed up as it has been for over 3 years.

Completely forgot about the maintenance, and wondered why the game said I had to complete to prologue before joining online. *facepalm*

Well, I just checked my SC stats, and my unwanted money is gone! Unfortunately, my money breakdown is still screwed up. I did the math a while ago, and at a conservative $250k per night, it'll take me 30 years to get the shared money percentage down to a "respectable" amount.

Come tomorrow, that might be fixed too. I've had no changes to my GTA online profile so far (looking at the SC)

This strikes me as People are setting expectations WAY too high. Not you or anyone in particular but the reason I tend to enjoy games, even problematic is b/c I keep expectations low. I've gone into so many games, LOTR: Conquest for one, based on the merit of the Dev and previous products. Since then, even with a franchise I adore, I'm all like "Meh". It's why I loved AC: Black Flag over AC3. At first I was very excited but remembering the impatient "grind" of 3 just to get to Connor made me realize it could happen again. Luckily it didn't.

I still say Red Dead Redemptions entire story and ending (The REAL ending. I ignore anything past the, as my pal referred to it "Face Melting Final Scene". Thankfully I cleaned up as much as possible on my first run. Using Jack was just mind-numbingly annoying lol.

Oh yeah, I heard public lobbies was pretty screwed up. Can't remember the details, but it doesn't matter much at this point; not sure I even have the game anymore.

Screwed Up is a term to use hahaha. I recall seeing a vehicle that literally looked like 2 jammed into one. Some were inaccessible and definitely Invincible cars/players.

That was like 2-3 weeks prior to GTAV though. I'm just gonna toss it back in for TBOGT.

Also, just so everyone knows - The Maintenance Period is over Just saw this on Twitter:

"Rockstar Games ‏@RockstarGames
GTA Online update - today’s scheduled maintenance has been completed and the game is now back up and running. Thx all for your patience."

What I mean is, when is the last time a game was like "yeah, it's coming" and then without 12 trailers and 10 reveals, they suddenly gift it to the public as a surprise.

I see what you mean. Look at poor Valve fans waiting desperately for a new Half-Life and Counterstrike...but I think the latter was recently announced.

At least with R*, they haven't been saving it and then dropping it later with a price of some sort.

To me, while I DO like a bunch of releases to maximize my options, I do wish most developers would take on ONE project at a time.

Yeah, it's a shame. I don't even know anyone that will play it anymore due to all the modded lobbies, etc that go on in that game. I guess with V out, IV just doesn't matter any more. It's similar, but not near as bad as GTAIV in RDR these days. It's hard to find a game where there aren't at least 1 player or a small group that are invincible. Least you can still play poker..
