GTA V online fixes needed with 1.05 patch

What are your honest feeling towards GTA Online at the moment? We should really be talking about how amazing everything is going and how much of a brilliant job Rockstar has done. Instead though, it seems as if there are a lot of issues going on with the online portion of GTA V, issues that were increased ten fold after the introduction of the 1.04 update which officially cut income earned by half when repeating missions.

Just to give you an idea of the overall feeling right now, it’s a good idea to read through some of the feedback from angry GTA V players in some of our previous articles. We told you about GTA Online Heists being the ‘last resort’ for earning money after the income cut.

Then there was the initial backlash and shock horror when players where finding out for the first time that less money was being received each time. Rockstar eventually admitted that they had cut the income due to ‘balance’ changes, but then gamers were still finding ways around this with some naughty glitches.

We hear feedback from our readers complaining that they have had enough with their characters still being deleted and the missions they originally enjoyed, are no longer enjoyable.

Then again, there are some GTA V players who have no problem with the changes whatsoever and are finding ways to earn money just fine.

With all of the points above in mind, what would you like Rockstar to do with the next GTA V 1.05 update? It’s clear that fixes need to be made – but bringing back the original income received is obviously not going to happen, with the $500,000 ‘sweetener’ cash due to arrive soon.

Have you had enough of GTA Online to stop playing, or are you hoping that the 1.05 patch will fix everything? List what you want to see below.

The bad sport needs to be changed in my opinion. We are already paying for the peoples cars when they are blown up so its very stupid to further punish people for that. If it becomes a real problem there should be real moderators and not bots to tell whats intentional and whats not. As for leaving missions there should be a certain amount of time in the beginning to give them a chance to leave without being a bad sport, like a 99 lap race that no one wants to be part of or everyone repeating a mission that… Read more »

I spend half my online time: – waiting for the screen to load, staring at streetlights from a birdseye perspective – trying to join my friends which hardly ever happens in a fun and exciting way – hiding from other players so I dont lose all my money when I am trying to find my friends in a job – getting ‘kicked by other players’ (how do you even do that?) – starting jobs alone or quitting because everyone just disappears for no reason at all – wondering why I am bothering to go to an ATM (that is boring… Read more »

Does anyone have issues on when you play online with friends all of a sudden all your friends leave at once? Because I don’t what the hell is going on and its very irritating.

Fix the constan message of ”No rockstar server cloud available” Its killing me for ages now and online can be good but im losing hope to this game lately.
I did expect bugs from Rockstar but please fix connection issues.
For the rest, more missions like proper bankheists and robberies. Too much DM and LMS to my opinion. And make proper jobs like in MTA San Andreas like police officer or taxi driver. Maybe in the future updates.

Well seeing as how patches V1.03 and V1.04 removed the lightning strikes/bolts from the game, i’d like for them to return as they are super cool. For some odd reason thsoe 2 patches removed the new cool thunder and lightning effects from GTAV and replaced them with the poop thunder effects from GTAIV. However if you delete those 59mb patches from your HDD the lightning strikes/bolts come back. So i’m choosing to play offline with no patches to keep the lightning.

they should bring back the $25,000 reward at the end of the mission where you blow up the lazors, then steal a plane and fly it to the desert runway.
Also me and my friend did a 24 hour marathon of gta online, I levelled up from 15 to 50, my friend, 20 to 50, we go into free roam, I have all my stuff, but he’s lost 30 levels and $500,000. he told me this was not the first time either, it happened the day before where he lost 5 levels and $1000. They Need To Patch This Immediately.

I’ve taken a temporary break simply because I had the unfortunate time of getting a bounty while in a tank. Self Defense against people trying to kill me ended up with me being put into a Bad Sport server where I can no longer play with friends A decent change with that would be to make people with bounties not have the same rules applied to them. You attack someone who has a bounty, they should have every right to be able to blow up your personal vehicle sans worrying about being a bad sport. Afterall, they’re merely defending themselves… Read more »

I personally like GTAO as it is, the jobs they made a little harder to earn copious amounts of cash, so what? Work a little harder and longer…. Just think of it this way…. Let’s bring back violent duct the easy way, make it replay able and make it pay a million each time. So! Congratulations you’ve just made 500 million dollars in a day, now what? Just remember that once your at the top there’s nowhere else left to go. Enjoy having to work your way to the top. Yeah so what they want people to buy in game… Read more »

The heist need to hurry up and come out. And it needs to be more than just 3 or 4 heist that you can do repeatedly but, new heist and new objectives every time. And the pay outs gotta be decided on what you hit like bank, jewelry store, etc. that’s the only way I see the in game economy being fixed….

Bring out the heists online very soon, and a lot of them too !

Rockstar really needs to give us the heists, as promised. And not just 1 or 2 here and there… they should release them 5 to 10 at a time. This is a MUST and needs to come in the next month to keep gamers interested. Second, and this is BIG. They need to allow more purchasable items, such as TRUE houses and stuff. Players with money have no where meaningful to spend it. Release new vehicles, choppers, bikes, guns etc. for players to strive for. And finally, get REAL about the money system rockstar. Do not try and sucker the… Read more »

Getting booted every 5 minutes where everyone in the map “has left” all at the same time is getting annoying. It’s getting lame playing by myself since joining my friends is turning into a hassle. And natural disasters would be an awesome implementation into the game such as a tsunami engulfing the city or a hurricane launching you into the ocean.

I’m still having trouble with the servers, half the time I try to do a job it times out or says I’ve been kicked and bounces me back to the story mode where I have to try to reload it, then most of time it puts me in a blank server where I can’t do anything and when I press start its same as if I was still in the story mode so the only way to get out is to load the last saved story mode or just go to the xbox dashboard and restart the game.

Money, no money, it really doesn’t matter (though I’m as angry as anybody about the payment reduction), because the #1 problem with the game is the absurdly useless “passive” mode, which should be called “Kill me” mode. The #1 goal of Rockstar with the online game should’ve been to encourage players in free roam to INTERACT, and to HAVE FUN. Instead of giving us a good old fashioned Friendly Fire mode like sooooo many other games before have had, they gave us their ridiculous version of it called “passive” mode, which prevents you from even looking at what weapons or… Read more »

It’s clear that Rockstar was dismayed that no one was buying their GTA$ so they keep nerfing the game to make it harder to make money. This is especially galling since we all know that GTA V grossed over a billion dollars in the first three days. How much more do they think can they gouge out of us?

Can we please have the Hiests, make them amazing take your time, but remember people are craving them!!! 🙂 I think this update will give the players a chance to get a house and get better, but once you have a ton of money the game gets a little boring, just putting that out there i have a lot of money, but I’m still insanely excited for the heists, please make at least 50 or 100 😀 if possible. There are a lot of people doing glitches to get money (Im not) if people continue this this game won’t be… Read more »

I never use cheat codes and now my single player has got corrupted and it stops me using the phone in single player and in On-line once I select Internet on the phone apart from Quick Save still works. What actually happens is, when I get my phone out, when i select anything apart from Internet, everything is fine. As soon as I select Internet my character puts his phone away. When I get the phone out and select an option, my character puts the phone away again apart from when I select Quick Save. When this happens I can’t… Read more »

I’ve had it with Rockstar. Don’t get me wrong I love the game, but these online issues are taking the fun away from the online experience in general. I think about it like this: Rockstar was to release the game in March of this year, so I’ve heard from the people at GS. If they had it would have been worst! What really pisses me off is what had recently occurred of me earlier. I had played the game for hours starting with a rank of 38 to 45. Now that may not be a lot, but that s**t took… Read more »

Come Out With Online Heist and it should be about 50 heists. Point Blank!.

Before it came out, Rockstar said that GTA Online was going to be about fun and not grinding… Yeah okay. The reason a large and growing amount of people are exploiting the crappy code is because the game itself doesn’t reward playing the game legit. On top of that, just about everything in the game is locked. Go to any game and if there is progression then you will see farming. But R* logic was to nerf the ability to farm missions like Violent Duct, which players had no issue with! It’s plain and simple, R* is butthurt because they… Read more »
