I'm done with the Online for a while now. Whether they fix all the bugs and work out the lag or not, it won't fix the horrendous fanbase for the online. I couldn't even finish a job without having a few people try to kill me and others just jumping out of cars and goofing off. Terrible, terrible community for this game.
I know you can activate passive mode, but what's the point? People still won't play it the way it should be played, which is cooperatively.
My crew and I just started doing miscellaneous jobs to rank up, almost to level 10 now. I figured the higher the rank, the more activities/jobs and whatnot.
I'm on 360, he's on PS3.
Yeah, the three of us are all PS3.
No rush, mate. College keeps me busy too, and I only go home on on the weekends, so I won't be on that much anyway. I am still excited to play with you all and have a blast online.
Go home Creasy
Yeah that's cool. As @0Brady says there's no rush anyway. Bloody servers still playing up this morning.
Give me another hit of that whiskey, will ya?!
I got back on tonight and played quite a few more hours of GTAO. Did some missions with some people I just met, got some achievements, ranked up. Overall, it isn't too bad, just plagued by people who refuse to play it any way other than killing everyone in sight. It also suffers from a lot of the same problems that the SP has, mainly having lots to buy but zero money. Also, it takes forever to rank up, so I don't see too many people hitting rank 100. The online doesn't offer that much fun for me to stick around that long.
I know that feeling. I made my character, joined, raced, started the first mission (retrieve the drugs), and in the middle of it, I went invisible and the entire HUD disappeared. I roamed around for a few, and then was forced to restart it. Things have been going alright now, for the most part. Just trying to do more missions and rank up more so I can unlock some other game modes.
I don't think I've seen such major problems for the online portion of a game like this before. Makes it terrible for people who can't join, and terrible for me because there isn't much to do with nobody playing.
I know a fair amount of glitches are expected for something as ambitious as this but it's downright broken, I can't cut Rockstar any slack for this. I'll finish the single player and then I'll play FIFA until Zelda comes out. Maybe I'll try the online again but not for a week or two at least.
@Creasy47 Was Battlefield any good?
That's exactly what happened to me. Got to the Cypress Flats mission and it crashed. When I reloaded, it had lost everything.
Thank heavens that Arkham Origins is out in a few weeks.
Really? I beat the game and all my characters have over 17 million dollars. I have so much money I don't know what to do with it.
Did you complete the final heist Subtle or Obvious @0Brady to get the 17mil?
I think the problem is that there are numerous properties/businesses available to buy throughout the game, but realistically they can't be purchased until you complete the final mission. It's a complete reversal of IV whereby you had a stack of cash early on but nothing to buy.
I can understand that. There are still properties like the golf course that are worth way more money than you could get at the end of the campaign, and I don't have the faintest idea as to how you are supposed to get an additional 20 million dollars or more with literally no big money-making missions in sight. Good thing I have no interest in that. I am sure you could make decent cash playing the stocks, but I haven't the faintest idea about how to do that, so I just stay away from it.
@thelivingroyale, BF4 beta is a disaster right now: nearly impossible to connect, terrible pop-in glitches and graphics - the latter making the game look like a good PS2 game - and the gameplay is a lot faster, like CoD, which is bad. They also messed with the ammo packs, so one pack goes to one person and immediately disappears. Such a bad idea.
No, because the real estate online is separate from the real estate in the single player. I hear the best way to make money is just to spam the briefcases out in the water (which only nets you a few hundred thousand every hour, and I'm pretty sure they patched that already) or buy a lot of stocks before assassination missions, but if you've already done all of them, you can't milk that process. There's literally nothing to be done, it seems.
I'm managing to find little workarounds to get a good amount of money/XP. A buddy of mine found a mission that takes less than two minutes to do, and gives about 1,000RP and $3,000 every time. Managed to rank up twice and buy an apartment + two car garage fairly quick.
I hit rank 25 tonight and am only three achievements away from getting 1,000 GS - rank 50, rank 100 (not gonna happen), and 30 platinum awards (17 to go). The mission 'Violent Duct' is great because it takes about five minutes from when you start it to when you're at the screen to start it again, and you're awarded $9,000 (in just 90 minutes of game time, I got close to $200,000, I believe) and 1,000 RP in that time frame.
EDIT: Rockstar is working for a big Online patch for tomorrow.
