It's designed to give players an option; and if people are willing to pay (and for the record, shark cards are selling horribly), why not have the option? As a business they'd be stupid not to.

I am a gaming industry professional. If my studio stops making a profit, I am gonna be unemployed soon after. Of course money is important. Common sense.

Yeah, if I want in-game cash, I either have to work (grind, not play) the game for endless days or spend real money.

Like saying, hey, if you don't want me to rape you, you have to work for me without pay for 6 months.

The bolded part is the only piece that matters to me. If you don't like it, you have a few options:

A. Don't play the game.
B. Make your own game so you can do whatever you want.

The fact that people are criticizing them for having a monetary motive is hilarious. What is Rockstar supposed to do? Create GTA V by pulling it out of their rear ends, then tie it with a bow and give it to people with a smile and a giant heart? "Oh noez, a gayming companez wants to make monies! How dare they!" rolleyes.gif

I made nearly 18 mil in the last 5 days on GTA:O. They have double payouts for heists and double RP days all the time, dude.

No offense (because this isn't offensive, TOS), but maybe, you're just not that well versed in how to make money in GTA:O? It's insanely easy.

"grind"

Or you could just spend your real hard earned cash on a couple hundred thousand in-game cash because in-game cash is impossibly hard to make. See how that works? And you fell for it.

Wut?

I've put 134 hours into GTA Online and I have earned $4.5M (an average of $11,194 every 20 minutes if I did nothing but jobs, but half my time spend in GTA Online is just driving around in free roam so I've been averaging around $20,000-$25,000 per job) without using cheats or Shark Cards.

Lol so what if they get banned online. Once a successful multiplayer modification is made why should they give a damn? I sure as hell won't care.
post #30 of 138
I find it ironic that they only got (themselves and other people) banned due to including an ownership check for using these servers.

I think you're forgetting option C., ignore what Rockstar wants. There's this saying to interpret a piece of art for what it is and not what its creators intended, can certainly be applied here as well! Of course I'm not encouraging acting in a way that infringes other's rights, just a philosophical aspect.

Either way, the modders included a feature that uses rockstar servers to verify ownership of the game, hence breaking the ToS. Gotta not check for illegal copies next time to respect Rockstar's authority.

It is not some modder team's responsibility to check what other people do that is in conflict with Rockstar's authority, and maybe a bit foolish to expect Rockstar to not utilize their legal authority for some ulterior motive that is not in the official statement they made as explanation.
