GTA Online Is Arena Wars Now Dead Because Double Money Has Ended?

  • Published on Jan 17, 2019
  • Me doing a commentary on the arena wars dlc and what the result of ending the double money has been. The DLC while not completely dead is starting to die because of how expensive it is and the fact that the payouts are just so bad.

    I did not even mention how bad the ranking system is and how unbalanced it is with trade prices. Hopefully rockstar learns from this and the next dlc is a new business not based on an adversary mode. Im not saying that adversary modes are bad but the way it was implemented here was. It was too expensive and the pay was very bad. There was no coop and everything was behind a trade price. Why would anyone invest millions of dollars into something that is not going to ever get them their money back? I can see people playing this for fun but when the pay is just so bad its going to make alot of players stop playing it.

      Takes longer to play to unlock what you want then just doing normal grind and paying for buy it now price

      And this was why I completely ignored arena wars lol. I maybe played once but I didn't invest any money bc gta is at own fault for pushing players to only bother with money methods that are most profitable/time efficient.

      I already knew once x2 money was over arena would die. By the time you unlocked the trade price for something you wanted not only would it probably take longer then if you just grinded for the buy it now price but you would not even make enough to buy it.
      And why the absolute fuck does rockstar think they need to make it to where we can't pick what we unlock (like the bunker research) or even see what the fuck we unlocked in the first place?

      A good way to fix this would be making spcail co-op raids against AI arena wars cars and bikes. This could get played out like Crossout from gjian, where u can do raids for maby a little low payment (sharkcard reasons) but very high arena wars points for the ranking system. make it like the ceo a freemode missions or just the old standaard mission slection. this could save the dlc update, unlike the dripfeed dlc cars with horrible handeling.

    They could have completely gotten rid of the adversary mode the way they described arena wars Is as if you would become a famous superstar if it was based off gaining popularity in the arena war and earning things such as contracts or sponsorships like real sports players this would have been an amazing dlc

    I made $103,500 from just one arena war mission. But I don’t play it anymore because it fuckin gives you $14,000

  • Emerald Pistol

    What they should do is every month they choose 4 adversary modes and each week is one of the four different modes to be double money

  • Blair Speers

    I do agree kinda, i still play it when i wanna have fun but make some money. Like i play tag team and here come the monsters and in like a 9 player game and i win i get like 30-40k on those matches, i know pay isnt great but im there for fun. When i grind do create missons and my meth misson and vip as ceo sometimes, i have 900 k at the moment so can get bunker, weed farm and cash creation and maybe a hanger then a night club to top it off, advise giving by the professional haha

  • I'm Jeffery
    I'm Jeffery 7 months ago

    The fix is simple just increase the pay. $5000 to $30000 and the $8000 to $36000 but all rockstar cares about is the $$$$$ thats soon just gonna be ¢¢¢¢¢.

    The sad part is this is the perfect mode to introduce a tournament system. With the obvious fixes and things like this arena war could blossom into one of the best updates we've had in gta. But of coirse if we think rockstar would put effort into an update in todays world we should really think again. I sincerely hope that arena war wheel is not a test for the upcoming casino update.

    You think R* cares about how many people plays and enjoys the game mode???? No man they care just to sell you a shark vouchers new cars and workshop and people do just to have it in their inventory.

    Since I can't get people to join when I host Carnage in Arena War (LITERALLY ZERO people join the lobby) So I just go in freemode with my Deathbike and hunt down players with it and kill them like its Twisted Metal.
    Since no one plays Arena Wars anymore I have to get my fun somehow...RIP Arena Wars Dec2018-Dec2018 😞

    I think giving money and exp kind of kills the game, because people play to get paid, not to have fun. And if you play to get money then you find ways to cheat (like going afk and dying early, letting the others do the dirty work), and you end up being a bad sport. Arena could have been a nice alternative to Carmageddon but it's not as enjoyable.

    Arena Wars is the most regretful DLC I ever purchase I wish sometimes that I can sell it and all of everything that I paid for because I've spent a lot of money for this DLC but I have not worn one dime so thanks professional I keep up the good work

    i want to create an arena league (on XBoxONE) for fun to play arena with full lobby just a friendly mess around . . . also i would like to find someone who dont really want to play arena (or could use an alt account/toon) to help me with the wins and unlock the ranking 20 (i can help back if needed with an alt) for those who dont know your rank increase when you win but get down if you lose DONT help with your main account if you plan/want to lvl up your rank . . . im actually rank 7 . . . i believe it take 120 wins (i readed it somewhere but not sure if i have the right amount) from rank 1 to 20 (121 from rank 0) you can lose and go down to rank 1 but you will never get pushed back to 0

    It’s been two months since this video upload and I randomly today decided to try to play a match of arena war. I invited a lot of people and kept everything open and I only got 3 people in the lobby.

    The double money should’ve been the default payout I mean even with double money the pay is still bad. Without the double money it’s ridiculously low, of course no one gonna bother playing it then. Personally I thought Arena Wars was really fun and a good way to take a break from grinding, it had a lot of potential imo.

    I was hoping we get a heist dlc
    Rockstar need to listen to players ideas just like the after hours they listened to us and gave us nightclubs. I was hoping another heist update would come out but no rockstar decided to make a arena dlc the vehicles are good though but the payouts are straight up bs they have to update the payouts

  • Not Coming
    Not Coming 11 months ago +1

    here’s a DLC idea
    1. Have the ability to buy NPC businesses and make a small constant amount of money (5k every 30 minutes or so ) without doing anything.
    Like story mode with the taxi and the car place thing.
    Actual Mansions not cliff houses but REAL MANSIONS.
    Pets or animals implemented into online.
    A real reason to own a yacht.
    A tuner update.
    Be able to hire npcs as bodyguards. That follow you around and drive you around and such.
    Like pc on consoles they should have role play servers. So we can play as cops like on director mode but with friends, or at least the option to disable the cops in a private session because it’s really annoying when you try to do a role play and you randomly get police.

    I disagree with the part where you said we shouldn't have to rely on other players in the end. It's a multiplayer game, you're supposed to rely on other players. The problem is that people don't want to because there are so many tryhards and griefers that instead of working together, players want to avoid each other. This is all Rockstar's fault, since they designed the game this way. Arena War was dead before it even came out.

    Between how bad red dead 2 is and how rockstar dont care about anything but shark cards.... Gta, red dead are dieing for me. One of the most successful games world wide.... And they chose to be micro transaction whores.....

    Double cash/rp is the only reason why game modes even thrive. Remember stunt races? No one plays that. Remember the transform series? No one. The other game modes like TDM no one. It’s double money that makes game modes playable.

    My friends and I discovered that during the x2 money if you played the car soccer one you could take turns letting one team score all of the goals, and trade each time to maximise profit. You could make around $150,000 in 20 minutes. The problem was that it was the most boring 20 minutes of my life.
