GTA Online: Split Between New and Veteran Players Is Getting Ugly

by Charlie Noah Web Designer
GTA is probably the oldest and most famous online game available. Yet, GTA Online can hardly be said as a generous place for beginners, and unfortunately, the gap between new players and experienced ones does not seem to be getting shorter and is increasing day by day.

Because of its popularity and the gaming experience it gives, GTA Online is still constantly receiving the entry of new players in large numbers. The most recent incident was when Epic Games gave Grand Theft Auto 5 away for free and several new players barraged the game’s servers.

GTA Online is an extremely famous game, but it seems to always loiter in the areas of disaster. However, Rockstar Games has always tried and did keep the game constantly revamped with new and interesting content. However, while on one hand, it made fans happy but on the other hand, it can also bring up problems.

Recalling the latest incident, when a casino was added to the game, some players shortly devised a way to steal the casino, capturing all the in-game money with the help of some exploit, and in the end, Rockstar had to respond by emptying their accounts. Therefore, hacking, cheating, and stealing are the most constant concerns GTA Online has to deal with. Not to forget, many times glitches in the game created great damage, like the renowned witch of a flying car that occurred in GTA Online.

Many times, it is not the hackers or glitches that wrecks the gaming experience of GTA Online, but it is the rivalry between the players that creates the conflict. Alongside, GTA Online gives a lot of opportunities to the players to go to war with one another. While this can truly be one of the most enjoyable parts of the game, it can be extremely hard on players who are quite new in the game and still discovering the technicalities.

According to the report of Polygon, the increasing void between old and new players is making the game outrageous for those who are just getting into the game. Several players shared with the site about their experiences of being continuously hunted down and killed by the experienced players as being new, they don’ stand a chance of defeating them.

GTA Online is a game of skill and expertise and any skill-based multiplayer game gives an advantage to players who’ve been a part of the game for a longer time.

Also, in GTA Online the extensively powerful weapons and wagons can only be acquired with in-game currency that takes weeks of playing, so obviously, newbies can find themselves completely defenseless in their fight against the maestros as they would have no safe house or any powerful weapons. That is why in GTA Online, newbies are left with no other option except running away or hiding.

The worst part is that for newcomers, RockstarGames does not show any interest in rebalancing the GTA Online economy. Rather than helping, it often gives out free cash and launches new costly gadgets, and gives no chances to the players to even the scores. The only option left with the new players is to try climbing the stages as much as possible and wish that the GTA 6 will pay heed to their concerns.
