GTA 5 Players Stole GTA$ Money Worth Millions in Real Life

By   /   2 years ago

When you get a game with millions of users, it obviously means that there will be some players who will exploit the system.

Same is the case with one the most acclaimed game of the year, GTA 5. Rockstar has confirmed that GTA 5 cheaters have managed to steal trillions of in-game GTA$ which would cost millions in real life.

Okay let’s allow that to sink in. Does it mean cheaters playing a game have been sitting on a chance at becoming millionaires?

As expected, the developers are there to ensure matters like these are taken care of. Rockstar has taken action against the embezzlers and sent them to a cheater’s pool.

A cheater’s pool is basically a session that puts cheating players against other cheaters and forces them to wear dunce cap. I wonder if they should have been banned outright.

If you go and have a look at the game’s richest players’ charts, you will see people amassing trillions of GTA$. A certain player “epiicmoddingtobi” is worth more than $1 trillion ($1,109,674,917,679).

Now we know that one million GTA$ is purchasable for £5. This means that the dude is sitting on £12 million worth of in-game money.

“To keep the gameplay environment as fair as possible for legitimate players, we routinely do sweeps to separate out cheaters and modders, and to reverse any illegitimate transactions,” said a Rockstar representative.

“These sweeps are based on in-game automated detection, examination of suspicious gameplay statistics, and also manually-reviewed evidence submitted by the Community.”

    Maybe The shouldn’t have made earning money in the online games such bs because they want to fix there real budget. They say they budgeted the games economy but if you look at missions pay outs you would laugh in the real world saying none would take that mission for that crap pay out. I am sorry but Rockstar stewed the pouch with the online game of gta 5. You can’t steal high dollar cars. You can’t hold more than ten cars in your garage. You made a game rated mature then take out the nudity. You charge millions for certain Items in the game. Then make the payment system in game so you spend most of your money on ammo. So you can get more money on a game you already made a billion dollars on.

    Sorry to say it guys but you being just plain out right greedy.

    Well maybe if the online wasn’t so garbage and they didn’t take so long with patches and content packs this wouldn’t happen. I went and bought the collector’s edition on day one and I sure regret it. GTA Online is boring and loses it’s substance really quick and that’s a huge letdown.
    You brought this on your self Rockstar. I’m actually glad to see them suffer financially. Maybe next time they won’t release an unfinished product.
