As we have just informed you, the highly anticipated GTA 1.05 update is now live on PS3 and Xbox 360. So far it is an unsurprising update with many of the changes having already been discussed by Rockstar. Having said that, the developer is bound to include one or two hidden changes in their update as always, but one of them isn’t any improvements to the Bad Sport system unfortunately.
If you have been playing the game regularly, you’ll know that the Bad Sport system is easily one of the most controversial. To tell a long story short, Rockstar has decided to punish players in online multiplayer, specifically those that destroy the customized vehicles of any other player.
As you can imagine, this has caused one or two issues with many of you. Given the free roam nature of multiplayer and the appetite for destruction, sometimes it is simply out of your control if some of the vehicles in your server are destroyed.
Using a jet for example can often get you into trouble with Rockstar, resulting in the developer placing a dunce hat on your player and a banishment into servers with other ‘offenders’.
Players had hoped that leniency would be coming in the GTA 1.05 update but it hasn’t happened. The Bad Sport system is unchanged as far as we can see and most of you will probably be experiencing the dunce hat at least once or twice during your online sessions.
We’ve included a video below just to give you an idea of how bad this system is affecting some players – viewer discretion is advised.
What have you noticed in the 1.05 update that Rockstar hasn’t mentioned in their patch notes?
