From limited experience I think everyone on the server has to be well outside the drop spot for a while before it gets dropped

Are you sure about this "higher the highest level player = higher the payouts" theory? The more I race the more I am convinced it is the higher the average = the higher the payout.

aka: I am thinking that a race with two 50 level and 2 60 level players will have higher payouts that a race with an 80 and three 30 level players.

Not sure who posted it earlier, but they were right about races with 3-5 players have better payouts that races w/ 6+.

How badass would it be to play basketball as Trevor in single player mode? I guess more like lolawesome moreso than awesome.
Why is there no poker room like in Red Dead Redemption?

Should be on for some of that, maybe more to the back side.

Hope you weren't upset with me for that rocket :P

Is there any way to save/keep a tank other than a garage?

Re: GTA V - Online Now (semi)Availible

That explains why every session I joined today, there's only 3 other people with me.(6-7 tops) And I lost the truck I modded yesterday. So I got another one and modded it again and saved to story mode. Proceed to go back online and its gone again. Bye-bye 260k.....good times. Oh but it saves the $ amount I lost tho wtf.

And I never got the standard rockstar warning about the cloud servers being down. Fun.

Yeah, if you're playing right now, I wouldn't recommend shutting off your console until the servers are back up. They seem to be down for everyone.

Re: GTA V - Online Now (semi)Availible

What's weird is I lost my truck twice, the $ I spent on it, and my flying and strength stats I've earned yesterday and today. But I ranked up today and that saved (and ofc the money I lost modding the truck again)

Re: GTA V - Online Now (semi)Availible

they need to get the finger out with the DLC

all my mates have stopped playing the game and sold it and **** lol it was good for the first week when everyone was on messing around and doing missions, but now it's me on my own pretty much and all the missions are the same boring ****, over and over.

Somebody watch this and tell me they aren't mad?

It's possible to do nearly everything in that vid, they just make it look way more exciting with different camera angles.

You can't store a tank/cop cars/etc in your garage, unless you glitch it in of course, there's prob a youtube vid out there somewhere to show you how.

We gotta do a 16 man Royal Rumble on top of the wind turbine sometime, if we can fit 16 up there that is, and someone doesn't snipe you off just as you climb to the top *cough*yeota*cough* lol

Re: GTA V - Online Now (semi)Availible

I like finding other players' cars and putting them on the edge of the water or next to a gas pump and then taking another car and driving toward it and bailing out just before to destroy their cars without having to pay for it

Cover someone's car in gasoline then ignite the trail with the backfire from your exhaust. Doesn't count towards bad sport and you don't have to pay their insurance.

lol i know what you mean, but the video is like ..

wow! look at this immense awesome experience that looks so cool and is packed with endless amazing stuff.

when in reality it's like you do about 20 missions and it gets super boring. you meet gerald and he says "steal the coke" "steal the meth" "steal the weed", eh ok ill just do the same **** over and over again.

then lester, same kind of thing, and martin, same thing. some of the missions are good obviously and im still enjoying the odd blast, but after a while it's like the same people, same missions, not many characters etc

in the trailer its like, yea meet all these new characters and open up new contacts and new missions and make it look as if it's immense when really its the same over and over. spawn with your car half a mile away, everybody drives to wherever you have to go, shoot a few guys, some noob gets popped, you do w/e has to be done and thats it. there's very little creative play and variety.

like career missions where absolutely sick, online doesn't even come close to the depth and quality of the single player missions. and think back to san andrea's, and all the mad stuff you could do, like learning fighting styles and robbing houses and turf wars and jet packs and working out and all the custom stuff you had.

this has not many clothes, a few tattoo's and yea stick a turbo in your car and stick some wheels on it, woo how amazing!!

nobody wants to play tennis, because it sucks, same with golf, go buy tiger woods, races are cool, but most ott you just get bashed by a few 10 year olds and lose.

the way you get into missions is a bit rubbish too, there's no flow and drive and sense of achievement, it's just hassle to find a decent mission that you don't end up getting kicked from.

then you get people killing you every 2 seconds and you lose money for it, people blowing your car up and running you over even if your passive mode.

or your driving down the street and the cops run you over and then come after you for it and start blasting you with shot guns, that's realistic!

i mean i like the game, and it's worth the money for sure given single player alone, and the first week of laughs (although that was mostly down to my mates not being able to play and raging epically in our party, threatening to do keepy ups with their xbox if it didnt work the next time they tried it)

but the video is misleading and im more upset with rockstar being idiots. this was supposed to be, and could have been, thee most epic game ever made and they did a half assed job and ballsed it up imo

everyone has got tired of waiting and being dissapointed with the fact that only a third of the game was released and now they have to wait for this and that, the game was delayed from march 2013, til september, then they said it wasnt gonna be next gen, then they said oh no online isnt for 2 weeks after launch, then it didnt ****ing work, then it turned out to be **** anyway

a bloody beach bum pack with a flipping buggy and a new gun isn't going to bring them back or change anyone's thoughts!! they have waited too long and ****ed people over too much

there was supposed to be tons of quality missions, heists, epic madness, lots of uniqueness and style, but instead its a bunch or repetitive missions and a few bits of clothing here and there with some crappy auto aim that ruins the combat and annoying characters like effin simeon ringing every 2 seconds. "you haven't forgotten about your old friend simeon, have you?" no unfortunately not, now **** off. why cant i block him!!?

ill not be getting GTA 6 and it makes me sad to say it i was the biggest gta fan ever in the history of man, but now R* have wanked all over me and i have to end the madness, they can stick the next game up their ass pipe
