Players just "playing the game" or doing missions are not considered exploits. There may be some missions players farm like crazy for a huge payout and RP boost that will be adjusted to keep the economy in balance, but players that repeat those missions while they pay out huge are not exploiting. They are just farming one particular mission.
Players that use exploits are easy to find, and repeat offenses may result in a ban to the cheater pool, which works similarly to the cheater pool introduced in Max Payne 3." __ CheapGamer asks if link was valid: Did any of you bother checking the OP's link? No, you didn't, because if you did you would know that this is fake. The thread he linked to doesn't exist. There is no mention about this on Rockstar's site, Twitter, social club, nothing. Carry on.
People respond to him: Lol actually it was there. R* just took it down, because they'd rather keep this low-key for now and not give glitchers forewarning (most are screwed already)
there's no ban coming. they deleted the topic because its bad PR and a dumb thing to post or actually do. ___ So obviously they're patching it out. Cheater pool though? Didn't play MP3 so I'm guessing it's gonna be like the Bad Sport servers where you can only play with others who glitched and maybe not be able to play with your legit friends?
Also, I don't know why they would say this cause when I called them they said they Weren't banning people...
I think this is the original thread from GTAForums: http://gtaforums.com/topic/627565-exploit-action-will-be-taken-in-some-form-proof/page-3
According to people who saw the link before Rockstar took it down: 1) If you're put in empty lobbies or matched with other cheaters, you're in the cheater pool. 2) Your stats wont save (leaderboards I mean) 3) You can't play with your legit friends. It will say "incompatible data"
The thing is the time it would take to ban all these people and then deal with the blow back (ie people calling claiming innocence, etc) would screw their CS over badly. They barely handled the opening of GTA Online and I highly doubt they are going to ban or suspend anyone. Too many players bought the game and if only. 1/4 of them used the glitch there would be so damn much drama surrounding it...it's simply not worth it. Just forget about this and move on.
