GTA Online's Latest Update Sees Fans Walking In Circles
Between using rubber bands on controllers, flipping over the controller and other unusual methods, online lobbies have been filled with players walking in circles, going AFK as it happens. It comes down to the Tuner Reputation system, a progression method that sees car meet members earning "Tuner XP" to level up, unlocking items such as new car parts.
Reaching Rank 1000, there's a few ways to obtain XP including trying new cars, taking part in these official races and hanging out at car meets. That last part is crucial here, as it offers players an easy means of levelling up, leading to this unusual state of affairs.
