Personally, I expected this, but what I don't understand is how the Solo mode doesn't work.
I mean, that's not online or anything, and yet I can't get past the first race.

It should be good though, I hope. The intro with Lamar was great.

Yes that showed me that you cant start any activity in online mode without the servers being involved...still though first day and all.

Well at least the normal game doesn't require 'always on' DRM.

Peace-Child:

The first race is an online race, even if you start the tutorial in solo mode. It has a sort of matchmaking that pairs you with others. I'd actually prefer to do the race solo though, just for a chance to continue playing.

This was epic fail right here.

If R* would have had you just dropped into the open world after the intro there would be far less issues. Dropping us into a mandatory, multiplayer race from the outset was just a bad idea.

I got stuck in the "Launching Session" screen about 6-7 times. After several reboots of the game, I finally got the race to progress with Me, one other player, and Lamar. Once that was over, everything ran pretty smooth.

I don't know why they would bottleneck the online opening like that. With so many people all trying to start the same mission all at the same time because its required to get to the rest of the content.

And day two, and week three..... Not complaining just poking fun at 'em lol.

I got a little further! Instead of auto walking to the blue point I could control my character! Only to realise I didn't see one online player! Can't wait to snipe some people though! The online reminds me so much of the riots during tenpenny's verdict!

Farthest I've gotten is the "launching session" screen. I was actually able to talk to another person one time but he didn't show up in the players list

Paranoid Android That's what I was thinking when I read Rockstar's choice in adjectives.
