I think this mission could have been better had it evolved into something more after the failed Merryweather heist, like turned into another point for TPI to smuggle drugs and or guns through the docks, like season 2 of The Wire.

I had actually forgotten the outcome of this mission - that's how boring it is. Like you said it doesn't lead anywhere and is so boring that in my case I just kept avoiding it.

Stole a pubbie's car (as you do) as they waited outside LSC to try to kill someone. Drove it to the docks and dumped it in the water.

I also stole the HPV in passive while two people were fighting it out. Unfortunately the Share function failed on that one, which really sucks Then Simeon's garage wouldn't open, so that car also ended up in the drink. Of course it saved that one.

On the moon... they don't make Neo Kobe Pizza.

There's a lot of reasons, hell I do it myself sometimes.

In a really prolonged fight in free roam, the cops always get involved and committing suicide is a cheap and easy way to get them off you so you can get a free shot in on respawn. If the other guy is trying to fight you while getting shot and/or distracted by the cops, you have an easier time at getting in and killing them because they're probably taking damage and not coming at you 100%. In an ideal world, people would actually use the '1v1 me fgt' feature but most don't so suicide is a good way to clean the plate. I had one guy do it after he killed me because he didn't want me to say he killed me 'not at my best', probably because he didn't know about re-applying body armor or shoveling snacks down your throat to heal. You can also use suicide in weirder situations to get out of a terrible position, like say you're being attacked by 3 guys from all directions with no good way out? Suicide, take the money hit and respawn a block or so away with a (hopefully) better position.

Essentially it's tryhard bullshit.

I wonder about people who don't have a group to play with - they have no incentive to keep playing this game as there hasn't really been a decent update in awhile. No new missions, no new content other than captures months ago.

It's almost impossible to get any activity that isn't a Deathmatch or a Race running too. No-one plays Contend/Raids/GTA matches.
GTA matches are great, closest thing to the modes from 4. Hell, they haven't even loving bothered to port the MP modes from 4 over.
No Mafiya Work.
No Car Jack City.
No Turf War.
Half-assed Cops 'n' Crooks.

These things should be shoe-ins and even moreso with Crews being a thing.
Only deathmatch and team deathmatch and free-roam deathmatch. Have some token weapons instead.

I enjoy Captures but as you said, you can't find any. And when you do, the payout for losers is so awful that when coupled with the amount of ammo you use there is no point to doing one since you always lose money.

The one thing I'm hoping they add is a true photo mode with more animations instead of just the cellphone camera. I've been screwing around with it in Shadow of Mordor and Infamous and it is loads of fun just trying to get good, cinematic shots.

Coming in 2014

Expect big things in both Grand Theft Auto Online and Grand Theft Auto V next year including:

GTA Online Heists. We know many of you in the GTA Online community are super excited for the debut of co-operative Heists. Heists are currently in development and we are working very hard to get them as polished and as fun as they can be. Stay tuned for much more detail in the New Year.

GTAV Story Mode Updates. For those ready to jump back into the story of Grand Theft Auto V, we have big plans for substantial additions in 2014 continuing Michael, Franklin and Trevor's action, mayhem and unexpected adventures in Southern San Andreas.

I don't know how turf wars would really work if they're supposed to be Crew v. Crew. Except for a handful of times, I've only seen another large crew presence in a free roam lobby a few times and most crews are small like handful of friends, or like IGN disjointed and loosely connected because they want WEED, LORD, BONR, HTLR in their crew tags. Or some asshat thinks he's Michael Corleone or Tony Soprano or wants to run his crew like a gang prison cell block an idea he got from watching Gangland.

Outside of massacres, and turning the map pink, what incentive would we have for taking over another crew's turf? Rockstar sure as hell aren't going to hand out enough money that makes it worth it over doing missions and races. How long does claimed turf last? For those with smaller crews in a session would NPCs spawn at gunfire like Grove Street and help them?

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.

That timing blows, unless they meant heists coming for us in these coming weeks in their writing. When the $60 FF15 demo comes out I'll dive into it hard and long and feverishly, then comes Bloodborne and it's spring-summer hibernation time.

Re: nothing to do in the game, I'm kind of at that stage. If people aren't running missions I really lose the desire to play. Free roam goon massacre on the public is usually entertaining for a few minutes for me, but my heart's really never in it.

I'm sitting on a little over 16 million. I'll front the cash for Goon heists but be sure that some assholes won't likely be invited back if they can't to the job. No one can afford to have people gently caress that up over and over at a couple hundred Gs per try.
