My name is BitBasher think I may have a problem.

I bought my third garage and though of all the neat vehicles out there, then started filling it with even more cars for racing. I bought a Dune Buggy and a Dominator and upgraded them all the way. I'm at the point now where I have like 15 cars set up for racing, even putting together cars for edge cases like the Utilities class. I'm fighting off the urges to buy the Livery Massacro, the Raphsody for alternate RWD car for compacts racing and a Baller for the rare long highway SUV races.

I need Race Anon.

Livery Massacro and Livery Jester are both so awesome. I didn't have a regular Jester so maybe it's always been the case but the Livery Jester is actually faster than the Livery Massacro. I've been under the impression for awhile now that the Massacro was the supreme sports race car but now I have a new favorite.

Today I got a guy in my Utility-class bait race who actually happened to own a Sadler as well. Fortunately for me he didn't seem to have most of the mods on his and he got significantly delayed in the starting grid when weapons became enabled and everybody shot off rockets at once.

I sure didn't find one, but there is a nice cheap 6 car garage behind the Ammu-Nation near the military base. At least on the 360, it's the largest capacity garage or house/garage combo available outside Los Santos.

i was joking. i thought it would be obvious since i said there was snow too, and there is obviously not so when you log on.

the snow pictures were from the 'visit north yankton" glitch last year.

BTW, he does have a son that age and a daughter that has the same mom (I only say that because he's been married a few times and has a bunch of kids). Her name is like is Addison or Aisha or something - which is the same name he was calling the person in the background last night.

So you know, he was really committed to that story I suppose.

That's some quality policework there. Keep it up and you'll make Captain.

I did some looking around on the GTA Forums regarding the Racecar Dinka and Massacro, apparently the Dinka version is outright superior to the original and the Massacro is slightly better than the original with better handling. I pulled the trigger on the Massacro and took it out for some races and yeah, it definitely handles better than the base model to me

What Compact model are you currently using? Because I only have the Rhapsody right now.

The brakes on the ratloader or ratrod or whatever it is are poo poo too. It's easier to corner by throwing it into a drift. But for now it's still gonna be my daily driver because it looks so dammned cool.

What platform? On PS4 I usually end up with 20+ in any given session, quite a few close to or at the cap. I've had a couple of 6-7 person lobbies but they're the exception rather than the rule.

Test your network connection. 75% of the time with 10down 3up I'm good and have played long sessions. Other times not so. The connection I had in a different city the past couple of days was 10d 5u and last night PS4 was worse and eventually down. R* likes to blame you for your connection problems and to a small extent they can be correct. But mostly it's them. To help your connection, you can look into changing your DNS settings on your PS4 (see 2nd post of this thread for details) and also your router (not covered because I haven't personally done anything with it) and there's plenty of info if you google it. Worse case scenario, you have to reset your router if you gently caress it up.

24 hrs resets it. If you have a second character you can do it on them as well. Crew challenges open at a low rank - 5 maybe.

I maintain you bought it for yourself and this whole "early present" thing is a fiction to try and keep your cred.

also if the livery Jester and Massacro are better than the originals, time to go buy some new cars I guess. I've got plenty of garage space!

Some of the deathmatch rounds are horrible. Stuck in a 20 minute round where one guy has got to the other side of a fence full of weapons and for the rest of the time we just have to punch the poo poo out of eachother inbetween getting mowed down by every weapon in the game.

That is a common troll lobby. They usually have either obvious names or obvious map layouts. When you see that the map is a bunch of bullshit crates stacked oddly leading to a fenced off area with a poo poo load of weapons you can assume it's bullshit.

Blista Compact. On paper it has identical stats to the Issi, but the Issi has real problems cornering at high speeds because it's rear end end has no weight on it and it swings out and loses traction far easier than the Blista.

I'm about to buy the Raphodsy to try it.

Yesterday I had someone beat me to the helipad on this mission and he blew up my buzzard as he took off in his. So I called pegasus and got in my boat and relaxed in the ocean out of reach of the guys that spawn to shoot at you until the mission was over. I dunno why people get so butthurt over people using buzzards in that one.

From another message, I guess he's mad that I "blew up the money packages" but the guy's like rank 400 and we're talking $2000 total. Also, I've successfully collected them after clearing the hangar with a Buzzard so who even knows.

Basically, buzzards own, this pub does not. Sorry I like flying, buddy.

I'm not one of those "I HAVE TO BE AIR-DOMINANT RARGH!" types, but does it not strike anyone as odd that it is exactly 100,000% easier for anyone with a homing rocket to just get out of their car and one-shot your buzzard than it is for you to even get within spitting range of them to try and line up a shot that may maybe kill them or may miss them completely?


Again, not super angry about this or anything... just... I mean, checks and balances, right? BF4 has helicopters and rockets that can knock them out of the sky but also emergency flares (that run out and have a cool-down, etc...)

If flares were introduced to GTAO, it would just be one step closer to being Ace Combat, and I am fine with that, since there isn't an AC on ps4 yet.

I mean, don't get me wrong, I don;t think Buzzards should ruin everyone's day... but I'm basically a big hot target if I ever want to go weapons hot in free-roam. An easy, easy target.
