    Wait....WTF?!? GTA Online

    So I just started playing GTA Online.

    I went into the mission Bodyguard where you start out at the airport and escort a business man to somewhere in the hills. I've played this mission a few times.

    This time...either this kid was hacking...or GTA Online is $#@!ing retarded. I dunno...I don't play Online a lot.

    I was in the city and he ended up coming up behind me on a bike.....right up behind me. I slammed on my brakes and he flew over my SUV. I went a little ways and then out of no where in front of me he rams me head on. When he did this...he literally appeared only 10yds in front of me.....like he lagged out or something. There was no red dot or anything.

    He then disapeared from the that car. I went a little ways and at the intersection where it starts going up the hill he had already formed a huge blockade of cars and was waiting for me. I turned trying to avoid the blockade and when I did...he was already there...in another car...and shot me.

    So WTF?

    There was not enough time for him to form that blockade at any point and I thought the red dot is suppose to show up.

    I dunno....it just all seemed really strange.

    I don't know the mission you're talking about (I only play solo missions or all on the same team), but I know once you're a certain level you can pay to have your dot disappear from the map.

    It does sound like some sort of lag though.

    But how would he get a big pile up/blockade of cars that quickly.

    Either way...that paying for dots removed sounds just dumb. I mean....seriously....how is that fair just b/c someone went into the online portion of the game first or more than me....and thats what gets him an advantage?

    Maybe he knows where you are going because he has done that mission so set up the blockade in advance.

    Or

    Maybe it wasn't the same guy that setup the rod block.

    You mean someone playing the game longer than you should not have an advantage and not be better than you?

    I can't wait to get online to experience weird $#@! like this.

    That part about the blockade doesn't make any sense, how on earth can a blockade exist in online when in single player you have moments where there is a car behind you 10 yards away and then look and then look back again and its gone? The memory retention in GTA V is the worst in the series, how can a pile of cars be fetched either from a server memory (most likely) or the internal PS3 memory?

    It would be awesome if this was true, but its not. Things disappear more than in the PS2 era GTAs because I suspect the RAM shuffling of data is extreme here. After a mission with a bunch of blown up stuff and wreckage, Trev is on the opposite side of the building and then when you walk back everything except 1 car is still there. There are other examples but its not just me reporting that. I did have luck with a highway where it appeared 20 vehicles were in one spot when I caused a jam-up.

    The end result, is that all online games feature this kind if lag jump or glitch

    It's annoying... Because it is also to do with internet speed i think... Were you are playing a person with a weaker internet connection to yours and thus you get interwebed with their internet speed

    A clash if you like...

    Dude...get off your high horse and stop acting like you need to teach me a lesson about life or something.

    Especially when you don't know what the hell you are talking about.

    I have a feeling you don't act like such a pompous ass in public....but you get the chance to be yourself online. What a relief for you and a dam shame for everyone else.

    I'm not sure what you want me to say. There was a pile up of about 7 or 8 cars blocking the intersection on the N side going up a hill.

    I've played the mission in question and didn't come across anythin' like that. It has happened in free roam, though.

    It's definitely a bit of exaggeration, but there are still times where it's terrible. I've gone around the corner and when I looked back around the car that was there is gone, or there is one where none existed. Dead bodies also disappear quickly if you look away from them.

    It's for sure bad enough that someone couldn't set up a road block and then move more than a block away. It sounds more like something relating to lag and/or multiple enemies (like I said, I'm not familiar with this mission, so unsure if there can be more than one person trying to stop you).

    I think 7-8 is very possible, I was thinking something larger for some reason. If it was 20+ then that would be hard to believe.
