Re: GTA V - Online Now (semi)Availible

Anyone have one of the first gen 360s that are incapable as of now (forever?) of running the game? Freezes every 10 mins...

Rockstar hasn't addressed it at all and microsofts 'fix' was an absolute joke. Anyone hear anything new?

Most of you probably know this, but you can steal one of the sheriff suv's in Blaine County and make it your own (even without owning a garage) by placing a tracker on it.

You get free paint jobs and I think insurance is either free or really cheap.

Search r/GrandTheftAutoV and you'll find multiple threads about it.

The easiest way to get one is to have a buddy nearby who waits until you get 4 stars. You wait until the sheriffs get out, kill them (not sure if necessary but probably is since they'd just get back in it otherwise), die, then after you die have your buddy get in it and then give it to you once you respawn.

Go to LSC and put a tracker on it. Then it's your main vehicle. Or put it in your garage to save it if you have one.

I'll be on (xbox) in about 30 minutes if anyone wants to roll. (preferably someone who is a high enough level to play survivals )

Re: GTA V - Online Now (semi)Availible

survivals are over-rated tbh

DOWN THE DRAIN

1 lap boosting until everyone in ur party gets max bike upgrades

and then 2 lap races over and over and over /grind

get like 5k EXP after the first lap and 1st place gets bout 13k if you have 5+ people

anything else in this game is less effective as far as leveling/money making goes

today me and my fully upgraded bike bros grinded that race for about 1.5-2 hrs and i ended up cashing 260k and went from lvl 93-97

tryin to hit 100 tonight but nobody will race with me cause i just beast it

Re: GTA V - Online Now (semi)Availible

Can enjoy GTA again with this latest patch - assuming my vehicles will never disappear again.

Re those bike races, do you have catch-up off? There's no worse races than 1-2 lap races with crap vehicles and catch-up off, the RNG is over9000

All the people I usually race with all have fully modded bikes. We play catch up off and usually try to fill all open slots with random players that obv don't have good bikes yet. But many times its just 5 or 6 of us all upgraded and its good times...one wreck and ur pretty much not gettin 1st which is how it should be...catch up is woat

I'm guessing this means that GTAV won't play on the PS4 and XBoxOne at all? That really sucks. I was holding out so I could just get the new system and play the crap out of it, but I don't want to get a PS3, play it, THEN get a PS4. That's ******ed.

1000% Akuma.

The next comparable bike to upgrade is the bati.. the akuma has much faster acceleration than the bati and the bati has a very slightly higher top speed... the bati has tighter handleing but for races the akuma is best...I like the bati in free roam but deff go akuma first...its 9k and bati is bout 15k

I second the Akuma. I wish the Double T was better cause I loved that bike in IV, but it's def Akuma then Bati RR.

Re: GTA V - Online Now (semi)Availible

Have they patched missions to make payouts performanced based or something or depending on how many times you've played the mission?

Re: GTA V - Online Now (semi)Availible

Lots of weird stuff going on with payouts it appears at the moment. Think it might be whoever is closest to the recommended level for the mission gets the most. Doesn't seem to be performance based.

With all these patches to keep us from making money, I'm almost willing to bet that BAWSAQ never goes live since we've already shown that we can manipulate it.

So with no BAWSAQ in mp and all of these "fixes" with the update it looks like we're being setup to buy gta bucks. Greed at its finest.

It's getting to the point where you barely profit after ammo/armor expenses. The store I bought my copy at offers $40 store credit if I return it by the 31st, I'm seriously considering it.

Didn't someone debunk that it was manipulated?

Hmm, I haven't seen that yet but I haven't really looked. PIS was still on the rise last I knew though. Ill look into once I get done grinding out 100%.

The high end apartments have heist planning boards for when heists are released.

LOL nah they're just tweaking and working stuff out I assume. I've still got 10k+ from multiple missions today. I really think they've still just scratched the surface and I will still be putting a ton of hours into this when even after next gen stuff is released.
