    Are you sure? Does it show up on your replayable missions?

    Yes. The last mission I can replay is 'Derailed'. Guess I have no choice but to go back and try to complete it again..

    This. Ftw.
    People are excited about it so I can understand. Still doesn't excuse childish moaning.
    I don't understand why people think it's childish moaning? Rockstar probably had a fair idea of how many people would buy the game, just look at how many people bought GTA4.

    They should've known that probably 90%+ of those people would want to play online. This crap of them warning people to expect problems is just pathetic, if they knew there were going to be problems they should've postponed the launch for a week or 2.

    @Menace as far as I remember the next mission doesn't unlock immediately im sure you have to get a phone call from ron first for the B to appear. Maybe call Ron see if it triggers it.

    Woaah there with your wild assumptions, where are you basing a 90+% online player population, like you said they have GTA4 that they could model the player population on, but I don't think there was as nearly as high demand then as now, I'm pretty sure there was a survey recently that said alot of 360's aren't even connected to the net

    That's like telling people to "expect the unexpected". It's all well and good saying it in hindsight.

    @GiarcYekrub

    Indeed. About half of all consoles, I believe it was. Activision even states that most CoD players don't even play online, which is why they continue to provide a single-player campaign.

    so much for those dedicated servers you said would be being used as 100% fact.

    Not basing it on anything. It was just a figure of speech. Ok it was a bit OTT. I read a previous post saying that if Rockstar had enough servers they would just be sitting idle for weeks.

    Wrong on so many levels. The first one being that they are probably working on their next game already. The second and most important being that the statement is preposterous, they should have enough servers. People have paid 40 for the game and 30 for Xbox Live Gold and should be able to play the game online whenever they want to.

    Hold on there. I never played IV online, but my brother played it all the time. My aunt has never even heard of GTA IV, let alone played it online and I'm fairly sure it's not as popular in the Falklands as we've all been led to believe.

    So tell me how Rockstar should have accounted for those statistics and parlayed them into an enjoyable online experience for all and sundry with this latest iteration roman numeral V? Hmmm? Work that one out Stephanie Hawkings??!!!1 Work it out within two weeks of launch you mother.

    Aren't all big MP launches the same? Why spend a fortune on massive server capacity for the first few days when demand will even out after a short while?

    Does your Aunt even own a console? And who mentioned the Falklands?

    I've never thought to ask her to be honest. Les Benzies, if you're reading this. Just put a question mark next to her name.

    I don't think there's any real way to stress test 10 million people logging to servers all at the same other than to basically suck it and see. I don't really understand all the anger, just give them a few days to sort it out.

    Personally despite the fancy trailers, I think it looks like fun co-op missions mixed with getting seeked out and harassed by idiots in the open world element. Admittedly I don't have a full grasp of how it all works, so I could be wrong.

    So, (assuming they can get on) will people calm down and stop committing random ultraviolence on each other at some point, or is online just going to descend into constant frustrating bullshit that makes it virtually impossible to get any real action?

    A strange game. The only winning move is not to play.

    Well it was touch and go at the beginning, but no-ones ever died from not getting enough food, right?

    Anyway that was several years ago now, from what I hear my cousin has been entertaining many people for years and hasn't gone down once.

    There is a guy in the session I am watching that is basically just stalking everyone, waiting until they exit a building and ambushing them.
