Rockstar to award early GTA Online players a half million dollars
It's no secret that Grand Theft Auto Online has had a rocky start. With games crashing, cars disappearing and even characters being deleted; Rockstar has been working hard to get all the kinks ironed out. That said, the folks at Rockstar feel bad about the whole experience so they're going to make it up to you with cash.
This morning it was announced that anyone who plays GTA Online in the month of October will be receiving half a million dollars in in game currency. To help protect the economy, players will receive the funds in two packages of $250,000, the dates of which have yet to be determined.
Unfortunately, this announcement also came with the sad news that Rockstar will not be able to restore any deleted characters. Rockstar says they "sincerely hope that this cash stimulus we’re giving out this month will help you get back on your feet or to make your new life in Los Santos & Blaine extra sweet," Patch 1.04 is expected to release within the next week and hopefully fix progress loss for good.
So does the money make up for the lost time g1s?!
ahhh you know that would be impossible right? It isn't possible to see who was affected. The only way they could do it is have a forum thread and ask who was affected and people are just going to lie. Just easier and requires less manpower
doubt that... however if true and you had connection issues passed launch day or the 2nd day, then yes YOU had issues and should get their apology. however for the many many many who experienced little to no issues, getting the exact same thing as the people who did... it's a bit ridiculous IMO. (apparently I was so unclear in my first post to get such responses)
I dont see the problem, I wasnt effected by character deletion, and I have only played for about 1 minute. But also I spent more hours than you have lost trying to connect or stuck in broken loading screens..
not even close to dragging politics into this... it's called an analogy chief
Let's not drag politics into this. If you want to discuss political matters, head to Formal Talk in the forums.
It's nice and all... though kinda pissed at their obamacare approach... I lost 10 hours due to their issues, yet people who have played the game for 1 min or who wasn't effected get the exact same thing.
JUST bought the game this afternoon. Glad I didn't wait any longer
And I STILL won't have quite enough for the Adder sports car. :P
Finally just got my 80K apartment and now I'm fairly broke. Hurray for government bailouts!!
Woot Woot Free Money! Now for more shenanigans
Fine by me....I'm low on money anyway after last night
