Ugh GTA Online Sucks! And now I've lost my money and Rockstar refuses to help.

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

I've had GTA V for a while now and a buddy asked if I tried online back when I got it.  Back then I said I didn't want to deal with everything that I've heard about with online game play.  I was completely oblivious beyond what I heard about online  and thought I was overreacting when I said it, but now that I've played online -- fuuuuuck that shit.  

 

Does it get better?  

 

I haven't been able to get anything productive done unless I'm in Invite Only Mode.  

 

I wanted to explore GTA V Online, but having faced griefers galore and modders/hackers that made it snow and killed everyone in game simultaneously -- I don't know why anyone plays this game online.  I had a session where I kept spawning into a cage in my garage.  

 

How is this game so popular while being so broken?

 

I've met some nice folks, but even when I was being helped I couldn't figure out how I was being helped without someone explaining it (and nobody could explain it in real-time).  Being invited to a MC or to do VIP missions I couldn't complete tasks soon enough so I could get paid.  I didn't know what was going on.  It's fucking ridiculous.  

 

Can someone explain to me what I am doing wrong?

 

The only thing I've had success with is farming Sandkings and Sentinels while in Invite Only Mode.  And I can't do shit with that due to the cool down when selling stolen cars.

Online is so much fun for heists and whatnot, when you can avoid any players not associated with you.

Outside that it's utter trash.


I WILL find your ITX build thread, and I WILL recommend the SIlverstone Sugo SG13B

In my experience the game is mostly dead(could be a region thing, public lobbies in my area are usually empty, only filled with Chinese players at night). A lot of my friends and I just screw around in private lobbies and play private games together, never ever mingling with randoms.

You aren't doing anything wrong, that's just what gta V online is these days.

 

There is a reason why people hate it so much, including me. But the thing is, as long as people buy it and buy sharkcards they won't change anything.

 

Some people have friends and play in closed sessions which is imo the only way to actually enjoy gta V online. Thing is, you need friends, which i for example don't have so i don't play it at all.

 

The single player is nice tho, but that's about it.


If you want my attention, quote meh! D: or just stick an @samcool55 in your post :3

I've had some fun moments with it, but a lot of it was just greifers making everything a pain.

Had my little karin futo I found and insured get destroyed over a hundred times but one of those times was after an awesome impromptu drifty race around the dirt bike track with some other random guy with a Sultan.

Eurobeat playing in my head the entire time 

It exploded because he was a sore loser.

Worth it

 

Its more fun with a group of friends. Really any larger online game where it's a free for all is better with backup but solo it can either be just fun driving around and shooting stuff or a murder fest where you never get anywhere and never get anything done because someone has an armored car and sticky bombs.


Pro tip, before you reply to an question or topic, answer these three questions:

 

1) Do I actually have an answer for OP at all?

2) Am I giving an answer that is based in multiple reliable source tests and not personal opinion or heresay?

3) Is my answer on topic, clear and concise?

 

If you answered "no" to any of those, close the tab.

Do not give people information you personally think is correct. Source, research and then reply. If you plain and simple don't know what you're talking about, don't talk about it. It's harmful to support questions on forums to be providing people with wrong or misleading information. As well as going off topic from the original question.

i.e. "What B360 motherboard should I buy?"

>someone replies with a PC partpicker list with a ryzen system

Not what was asked.

Ugh and now I'm learning that the one thing I really wanted isn't even popular enough to warrant being in-game anymore.  I simply wanted to race awesome cars only available online in street races.

Ok I wanted to change CEO Offices so I bought Arcadius Business Center and traded in Maze Bank West.  I had $2.5 million after the trade, but the money was gone during my next online session.

 

I reached out to Rockstar Support and their response was that their records didn't show the original purchase of Maze Bank West or the trade-in so they wouldn't give me the money lost back.  So their game fucked up.  Their logs fucked up.  And now they've decided that means their customer gets fucked. 

 

I'm not sure I'm ever gonna purchase another Rockstar game again.  This shit left a terrible taste in my mouth.  And they still can't control modders.  It's a fucking joke.
