Rumor: GTAO Offenders To Be Placed Into A "Cheater's Pool"

Okay, listen up, cheaters.

It seems Rockstar has taken steps to deal with any Grand Theft Auto Online cheaters, as fittingly revealed at GTA5Cheats. A "cheaters pool" will be released with patch 1.04.

We're not sure how you'll earn a spot in that disreputable pool, but it's true that persistent glitching will relegate you to a special lobby designated for dirty cheaters. You'll have to stay there for one month, too, and if you keep it up, you might face a permanent ban. Patch 1.04 has yet to be officially detailed so we can't be sure about this, but we definitely support the idea. Cheaters ruin the experience for everyone, don't they? There's no reason honest players should have to deal with such stupidity.

However, if you want to have a little fun on your own and utilize some GTAV cheats in the single-player mode, go for it. You won't be hindering anyone else's fun, at any rate.

The idea of putting cheaters up against other cheaters is a great idea, if they do that I really see no need to ban them, I've never cheated in a game, however, in call of duty 4 I found myself having more fun experimenting with all the glitches (getting out of bounds and whatnot) than actually playing the game. I can somewhat understand how people can have more fun cheating so putting the cheaters against each other, I see no problem with that. In a way it makes everyone happy (so long as the cheaters don't get posted on the leader boards) the cheaters get to continue cheating in a community with the same goal. and it doesn't take away from the legitimate gamers. Not in any way do I condole cheating, as long as it doesn't ruin the game for anyone else, I see no issues though.

This is a fantastic idea.

I think they should have their own cheaters leaderboard though.

Why not turn a negative side of gaming into a positive one?

I play the game normally and dont plan on money glitching and dont like the idea of spending cash on fake ass money neither. So what if someone is money glitching whats the big deal? Who does it affect besides Rockstar's Pocket. I mean its a Great Idea putting them out but why is so many people getting so bent out of shape about this. How is obtaining money through Micro Transactions v.s Money Glitching effecting you as a gamer any different? Just think about it.
Are you going to start getting upset because the guy next to you has more real life money doing micros and is buying up the best cars and planes and what not faster then you? FFS this shit isn't even real just have fun and game it up :)

the thing i found stupid was killing players and their personal cars in a free roam game gets u a punishment of not being able to play with your friends for 48 hours :S, i mean lets be honest its kind of like playing an mmo on a pvp server and expecting not to be killed by other players.
