Future of GTA 5 Online
The overall number of players has increased significantly, but the hardcore fans of the GTA franchise are not happy with the way things are right now. All 1 v 1 fights are pay to win rather than skill-based, and the Oppressors MK2s are as common as dirt. The modders aren’t getting banned until they mess with the server.
Patch Notes of Title Update 1.51
When a player enters the Casino, they are now told how long they have remaining before they can spin the Lucky Wheel again.
A ‘Return Personal Vehicle to Storage’ option has been added to the Interactions Menu, allowing players to return their personal vehicle whenever they choose.
Snacks can now be purchased from Wendy in the Arcade property.
Players can no longer rapidly tap accelerate and always get the boost at the start of the Race. Players must now only accelerate once “Go” is shown to get the boost. For Open Wheel Races, you need only to accelerate after the countdown lights are removed.
New spawn locations have been added to the Pegasus system to increase the chances of the requested vehicle spawning successfully.
Updates have been made to the frequency that players receive the help text, “The Terrorbyte is parked nearby.”
Updates have been made to the frequency that players receive the calls from LJT about their Businesses.

If players do not collect a checkpoint within 12 seconds or if the player is given a wrong way shard, they will be made passive/ghosted until collecting another checkpoint. This only applies to Rockstar Created Open Wheel Races.
The two new Open Wheel vehicles can be used in all Rockstar Created Open Wheel Races.
