    So I am wondering how many people, if any, will actually play this game legit. In other words truly grind out without using an AFK method or glitch to max out and/or get enough gold bars to buy the Black Arabian. (70)

    I earned 5 gold bars playing showdown non stop for 12 hours (alright, I used an AFK glitch) but the point is that to earn 70 Gold Bars without going AFK, you would have to play Showdowns for at least 168 hours. I am assuming that is the fastest way to earn GB's legitimately??

    thoughts?

    I’m gonna play legit, I’m sure they will bring balance to the online economy soon enough.

    I have been playing the game legit. I work a lot so can't get on a lot each day but all I do when I log on is mess around with my wife or go hunting with her. I'm currently level 16 with 1,000 dollars and 32 gold. Haven't bought any new horses but I have bought the Bolt Rifle, Bow, Fishing Rod and some other stuff I can't think on top of my head.

    Thoughts on the gold bar situation, well... I might just end up buying a modded account just like GTA5. Prices will only get even more ridiculous and at this rate of making money, its going to get harder getting stuff due to the amount of grind you already have to do but only time will tell.

    I was born and raised a honest farm girl, mister.
    But then the National Rockstar Bank said I had to work from dawn to midnight, to grind and sweat even on church's day.
    Now I'm on the run, enjoying an outlaw style of life. And I won't look back.

    Play legit? :what:

    LOL I mean, I'll probably rank my character legit, let's get that straight. But when it comes to money, I'm glitching like a mother f*cker. Simply waiting on more solid methods to be found, which as I've said in another thread is probably going to take a bit more time to develop with how little content and mechanics there are currently in the Online portion of the game.

    No way I'm going to waste ten hours or more of my time grinding for pennies to afford 3-5 items tops, especially when I expect there to be years of DLC content ahead - and the prices with all that isn't going to progressively get cheaper lol Not to mention I've already put 70+ hours into Singleplayer, so Online isn't having the draw I expected at this point and time. I'm sure they'll add better methods to legitimately earn money down the road, most likely starting in early 2019 (which I'll end up doing for role play and sh*t), but I doubt the payouts will ever reach the level of money glitches. Nonetheless, all that I've just said in this paragraph related to money glitches will be disregarded if there actually is a system in place that tracks glitched money and then wipes it from your character, as there has been rumored along the grapevine.

    well, did 30 of those 32 bars come as a gift from Rockstar? if so, then all you have earned legit is 2 GB's
    [doublepost=1545162597][/doublepost]
    That's my point. With the rate of earning GB's and cash, I am not sure it is possible to play this legit and ever get enough cash to do anything.

    100% agree here. Again, as I said, it seems a given to me that R* will add better money-making methods down the road as we're still in these early stages. I simply don't see them ever being worth your time whatever they may turn out to be. Unless you're just looking for a bit of fun.

    Zero reason to play legit. Make stuff expensive? Sure, why not? I've spent $thousand$ and plenty of hours to buy all the weapons and max them out and I'm doing the same with cards and horses and whatever so why should I put in actual full-time job hours to have a little fun online? Make the legit stuff worth grinding for (or glitching for) and then let people have fun with your game.

    If this had somehow been locked down to PVP payouts only I would've ditched this garbage fast. I'm still a little salty that so many customizations are gold-locked, but I still have faith this game will fill out like GTAO fid.

    168 hours of showdown will get you to level 70 easily

    I'm suck on RDR2 because I didn't know how to playing on RDR2 because its absolutely different from GTA V. I'm level 5 on RDR2 and feel crappy on level.

    all i do is reset my character after level 10 , do all the missions and a couple of treasure maps then reset.
    i get a decent amount of gold and cash doing this , maybe when more content is added i will level up.

    How much have you made total from this, and how long have you been doing it/how many times have you done it? I thought that would be patched by now.

    R* has to have a detection system for something like that. $8,000 on a level 5 account... There's no way they can't detect that.

    They detect everything. They generally dont care unless someone is modding the game.
