I keep getting dumped into empty lobbies and goons won't play with me

For someone with limited time to play and was happily playing pre-heists this is pretty frustrating.

Edit: sat around with three goons for like 15 minutes waiting for a fourth. Exciting.

I'm just gonna say... good on Rockstar for these Heists. They definitely put a lot of work and testing and balancing into making these a lot of fun. Just had an awesome time with Kelly, Gary and Lasagna, a lot more than I expected to have.

... despite loving up the Prison Break mission by knocking the wheels off our getaway plane...

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KRweyJGYYUg

That was great fun. The finale is complicated, but enjoyable too. Interestingly, the enemy spawning on these heists while massive, seem to be fairer than missions and free roam. Once you clear he prison yard, that's it - no more NOOSE spawning in front of you as you try to get away.

Imagine how much more sad and lonely we would be if not for the hard work of lowtax. Here's $12.95 to his aid.

I'll get on in a few hours and spend my time making money while watching this and that and listening to podcasts, wanting to get into the third heist for the sake of unlocks.

Doing the prisonguard and prisoner thing: Just bring armour and snacks, you're fine as a prisoner with the AP Pistol. Guards drop guns for you, just conserve ammo. Exciting system and showdown.

Glad to hear your thoughts on the Kuruma. I like the car even if it likes to swing out a bit wide, feels more like a "drift" car that way and I find it pretty fun to do a little city drifting sometimes. I only bought the regular model because I didn't like the armored panels for aesthetic reasons but after that testimonial I think I'm going to Rebel myself one, feels like something I should have. Have you tried the new Casco?

I haven't bought the new Casco yet, it's on the to do list though.

To give an example of how ridiculously durable the armored Kuruma is versus small arms fire, we completed the missions to steal the Valkyrie and the Insurgents by driving straight into the middle of all the enemies and just parking while the 4 of us in the car shot everything to death. That's it. No meaningful damage to the car. It's hilarious.

The Karin Rebel with the mounted gun in the back. Its shots are ridiculously powerful. Doesn't drive as nice as the Insurgent though.

It's amazing, I know.

I still wish the game had some kind of better matchmaking service for deathmatches, etc. I'm only a level 19 and it feels like every time I want to try a mission or deathmatch without goons, it takes me like 20 minutes to get something going.

Is there a 25k reward for the daily objectives every day or just the very first time you complete them?

I may have to log on earlier tonight. I was up until almost 1 AM finishing up prison break and had to get up at 6 AM - I feel hung over.

My quick impressions

The Casco is really nice and probably will be the new car for Sports Classic. I've only driven it in a couple of solo races, but drove it all day yesterday for missions and heists.
  • Straight line speed is amazing, during one of the setup missions I started slightly in front of Craptacular's Zentorno on the highway and kept my position.
  • Handling... it's tough to place exactly where it would fall. It's definitely much much better than the Coquette Classic and Stinger. A better comparison might be the Monroe and Carbonizarre. The Casco (I think) handles better than the Monroe because it has the power for a better exit on turns but if you over steer you'll end up spinning out just like the Carbonizarre or get loose if you over-correct.
  • Braking is definitely a weak point and you'll need to better plan your turns so you don't go wide and run into a tree like Paul Walker.
  • It has the tendency to barrel roll with the slightest provocation.
  • The engine purrs.
  • (not my best driving)

Gifted hack money has been gone for well over a year. Money from duping glitches (garage exit glitch, dead hooker glitch) you will still have but if you have any duped cars from those glitches you might not be able to sell them. What ever you bought with the money, however, you will still have and be able to sell. So if you bought a garage and filled it with 10 Adders (not duped). You're sitting on at least 6 million.

I think one annoyance I have is that Rockstar has said the new cars/choppers/planes are not appearing in single player (for now at least).

It sucks cause I get they want you to try this stuff out in MP, but sometimes I like just tooling around in SP without having to deal with MPs finickyness and pubbies.

Trevor's Heist is the Mexico of GTA Online. Best one is probably a tie between the Prison Break for the sheer insanity of the Finale or the actual final heist because it's essentially Heat.

With no performance mods, I'd say so. It accelerates ridiculously fast, but has a low top speed. Probably best for city driving.

And what about the Lectro? The KERS speed boost seems really useful, especially for races with lots of corners and braking, but how does it stack up vs. Bati and Akuma?

Two tips for the wise:
1. Buy an AK-97 assault rifle.
2. If there's someone hanging around your neighborhood you don't know, shoot him.

It's too bad that you can be shot out of the Insurgent (SUV) as easily as with any other car, but imagining the expression on someone's face when you shrug off rockets and pipe bombs is more than enough consolation. Somebody was even like "I got you now, motherfu- what the gently caress?"

And you can drop explosives from it, unlike the Kuruma.

I would assume they needed some way to balance it. Everybody running around in bulletproof, bombproof vehicles would make the game boring as poo poo.

Agreed. Someone just blew me up in it (too much explosion smoke to see where to shoot) but I hope he enjoys the fact that he spent more than $20k to kill me! (Premium + rockets)
