    Griefing has gotten much better. Due to the fact the game is dying from lack of support, updates, and content

    Until they add Free Aim and Passive mode I'm not coming back. Also it needs invite only sessions. Sometimes I just wanna fish and hunt in peace with my bro's.

    I've been on once in the past few weeks. Hope they add more.

    At the end of the day though, they probably can't add much by way of guns, clothes, etc given the time period. The could add houses, property, etc. I'm just hoping they add to the online story and some better online events like in GTA V.. something more than just doing Stranger missions and the random PvP lobbies.

    I found a fishing spot today that can bring in over $20 every 5 minutes consistently. I have no idea how it's not been posted all over YouTube, it couldn't be any more obvious. Best part is it's northern pike which is where the fish in Joe Fish comes from.

    I think the best thing they could add that would separate it from GTAO is an in depth trapper expansion. It would really make hunting worth investing in since a perfect pelt is only worth a couple dollars more. There's almost no skins besides a couple of vests and the high top moccasins, so the new clothing options would be really handy for the survivalists. A trapper in Ambarino and the Grizzlies would make it worth hunting and fishing up there. Plus a few extra places to sell to after a hunt would be really useful.

    That would also hopefully mean legendary hunts which would be great for online. I hear there are legendary animal clues and a legendary wolf in one of the missions, so maybe it's already sort of in and just needs to be built on.

    Had a really nice Make It Count win earlier where I caught three campers trying to camp on the same barn in Saint Denis. Killed all three one by one as they were focused on eachother, then hopped up to find the last player left and went down to face him on even ground.

    I'm the asshole who keeps running you guys down with a stolen carriage. Lassoing you then shooting and stabbing you. I enjoy stealing and killing your horses and I don't even do the missions. I'm the outlaw mama warned you about...

    Lol fool. They only marked it as a "beta" so they don't suffer any lost face. Like evergreen said they don't add microtransactions to betas.

    Pretty sure it’s not what the final product is going to look like, FOOL. It is most certainly going to have more modes, things to do, and different settings for getting into a server. You are a moron if you think this is the final product.

    Yeah I think it's especially bare bones because they're trying to establish the base before building on it. I'm sure they have a long term plan similar to GTAO in terms of content. If they added too much right now, they wouldn't be able to pinpoint the problems of the finer details because they'd be spread too thin.

    I find Rockstar's attempts at online pitiful. They garner huge crowds no doubt, but NOT because of multiplayer.

    I have 350 hrs in GTA V just for the PC edition. I also bought on release day for the PS3, and bought the PS4 version as well. I have spent maybe 20hrs in multiplayer, the last hour being well over a year ago.

    I'm never one to try and take things away from people but I just wish they fucking put more effort into releasing more single player campaigns rather than their online play, GTA V being the prime example.

    The online is good, but it is NO WHERE near as good as Left4Dead 1/2, Halo 1-3, Counterstrike, COD xxx, or the other mainly multiplayer games.

    Rockstar has far too much talent to waste on multiplayer because multiplayer always boils down to a core mechanic. The best multiplayer games can have meager budgets with mediocre staff if the core mechanic is solid.

    All the extra full Rockstar adds to their multiplayer is just wasted fairly dust imo. Better to focus the effort on creating more adventures.
