Got this game last friday, jumped to online after i hit the first save in the story. (Online was the main reason i got it, it looked fun from YouTube clips from people like vanoss, h20 delirious and terroriser, and while it's no saint's row 2 or 3, it's still fun)i'm up to rank 26 now but i'm normally annihilated in any freeroam fights. Any advice or tips to help win things like business battles, or handle events like king of the mountain? Or any advice in general?

Don't bother with online, it's just a mess of griefers and hackers who just want to kill you and steal your money. You do a job together with some people and then they will murder you and rob your money as soon as you finish. Not to mention those idiots who will intentionally destroy your personal vehicle for fun.
Excuse me, I have a mushroom cloud to walk into.

Well, i quickly lost interest in the story, and since i bought it online and can't return it, i'm guessing this was just a waste of $20

It's gone. The bad has outweighed the good, and any enjoyment is buried under frustration. I've already uninstalled the game

Easiest way to avoid being killed by people you just finished a mission or whatever with is to have started in an invite/friend/crew session with passive mode ON. Typically you will be dropped back into the same kinda session you were in before you joined the mission/heist/whatever and even if you aren't you'll usually still be in passive mode since you were in it before joining.
I'm not loyal to any company or brand, especially the Cult Of Houser(GTA games) or Sony(PS3/PS4/etc). Defending corporations is absurd.
