GTA Online Top 5 issues

We all expected it to have issues but honestly I find that Rockstar Games had a good launch. Once you get past the initial “tutorial from hell” introduction of GTA Online, the game runs smoothly for the most part. Sure some attempts to use online mode my fail, creating Crew logos will screw up, the game it self might lockup. But for the most part it DOES work. Often you get kicked off the server you’re on by the other players because they are assholes. When robbing a store yelling at the cashier to make him go faster doesn’t work if you’re in party voice chat. Screaming kids in voice chat, and no way to tell who’s doing it.

The biggest issue is getting into the initial race-mission with Lemar. For some reason doing this has to be done while online to a server, however when the actual “experience” of doing this has ZERO interaction with other players online.  This race should be a LOCAL instance WITHOUT the need to connect to a server. If any of your friends haven’t gotten past this bit, you can’t play with them online.  Since the servers are so bogged down initiating this race with Lemar, it often fails.

This is what needs to be fixed:

  1. The race with Lemar should be a local instance with no multiplayer servers so i don’t have to wait 6 hours to get my character started.
  2. No way to tell who’s SCREAMING in my ear on voice chat while in freeroam mode. I have no idea who I need to mute to shut up annoying players on mic.
  3. There needs to be a way to ABORT connecting attempts to GTAO when it’s clearly not working, so I don’t have to dashboard-quit and start all over again (i.e. waiting for the FUCKING race to start with Lemar)
  4. Passive mode doesn’t work when in a vehicle, you can be killed, and you can also shoot from your car.
  5. Stop players from kicking other players off with no reason, or even a warning that a vote is occurring. People are using this to grief and for harassment.

That’s my top 5 issues with GTA online. Get on it Rockstar, you have billions to work for.

    • I have some friends lose their characters forcing them to start over from scratch and having to deal with the “tutorial from hell” race that almost never loads up. So far i’ve been lucky and i still have my character i made Monday. did lose a few minor things (clothing items some $) and i think i went back a level from where i was last night. Also when the servers aren’t respdonging, of then the game will tell you you can play in singleplayer mode (not story mode) but your stuff won’t save.
