Okay I must be completely retarded when it comes to playing the stock market. On the Assassination attempt where you are supposedly supposed to buy Fruit stock I did it before starting the mission and bought it with all three characters. Ended up just losing money. So on the next Assassination mission I put all of my money into Vapid stock AFTER completing the mission and it is at 0 return percentage still. What the hell am I doing wrong?

It takes time to go up. A good trick is to go to your safe house and sleep until the stock rises. Fruit peaks at about 50% and takes about 2 "in game" days to get there. Vapid peaks at 100% and it's also about 2 days so just sleep a few times in a row and check each time you wake up. Also invest in the Fruit rival, Facade right after you sell Fruit. and that peaks at 30% after awhile.

Yes you can still can farm money & RP to level up, but not as good as it use to before R* released the 3rd patch where people were able to replay missions.

Survival mode is still good though for getting RP, building up your characters shooting ability, and if you are playing with the right people or crew it pays 20K each time you pass wave 10.

I leveled from late 25 to 30 in about an hour today grinding the Criminal Records race. It's a good way to get RP and cash. There's a thread on the ps3trophies.org, apparently it's pretty much the best method being such low level.

Currently grinding with another person, I'm at 35 now, so I guess for me it's been 10 levels in 2 hours. It goes by quick though.

The Fruit stock I waited like a week and it only dropped to a certain point and never moved since so I had no choice to sell it and take the loss. So I guess buying it BEFORE the mission is no good. I'll give the Vapid stock more time even I have already gone through like two days game time since I bought the stock and finished the mission.

I get online and it's just mayhem. It's just other people running everyone over and shooting them.

It's pretty frustrating to lose 2 grand every time someone decides to kill you. Seems like a steep penalty to me.

Same. I was able to last week before my character/stats got wiped.

EDIT: Apparently we need to delete our "broken" characters and start over to get back online.

GTA V Online Will Not Allow Fun!

Got online no problem as usual. Decided to do some missions by myself. Easy Repo ones & whatnot. Decided to have some fun. Went to where the choppers are kept near the city hanger & Pier. First flew over to check if any regular jet planes were there. Nope. Then tried the big planes. Nope. So without a parachute I decided to go to the military base & try & get a fighter jet. As I'm descending towards where the jets are easily accessible I noted a huge delay from military response. I was able to land the chopper right close to the bird & get into the Jet. Looking around, saw no red dots. Cool right?

Took off in the jet, dodged 2 missiles & I was home free. Not long after cruising around the city in the jet...

The Game Froze!



I don't even care what money I got or ranks I got. GTA Online can go suck it!

Hmm

Well if people could only be heard through missions alone, that would be nice.

Regarding your scenario of getting wasted & losing money.. I went to toggle mute on a player & by accident must of hit profile. I quickly hit o to go back but we all know once syncing trophy crap, you have to wait 90 seconds before you can do Jack & $hit on PS. That was more then ample enough time for me to get blown up by another player. That wouldn't of happened on Live, I guarantee it.

It's the medical bill, even if you deposit it all, you will get a medical bill EVERY time someone kills you/ you die.

That's why I use passive mode or solo session. Helps avoid all the d-bags online

What I said worked. I created a new character and had my money still intact. Then after I did the Cypress Flats mission, I decided to return to single player - then return to online to see if it was ok, and bam! back to session timing out. I've had it with this game now.
