| Anti-griefing measures were much needed so I believe. I never did much Free Mode because it was unstructured, but this looks like it has a lot of interesting stuff to do. It would be a sh*t show if it was easy for players to come on with the sole purpose of ruining it for others. |
As i agree fully.
But thats what the kicking system is for.
Because you dont know how to play back in a game where it basically tells you in the description - THAT ANYTHING GOES, NO RULES. Its pretty self explanatory.
i hope the voting system is more prompt for kicking griefers but thats another way to earn money? How does that work and how do they not expect people who like to kill other players on occasion to use said mechanic with such measures?
"You will get to play with other Bad Sporties." xrcore
Segregation? is that actually necessary? Because the players you kill are bad sports? Its a game about crime. Murder happens.
So, I will ask you something I asked in some other similar post:
Case study: Say I got a nice and big crew, close to your matchmaker zone and close to your login hours - and you shoot me a few times, as part of your "ANYTHING GOES, NO RULES" gameplay. I am within my right to respond in kind and shoot you for at least as many times as you did.
And here comes the kicker: what if I didn`t like how you shot me AND have a bigger crew than you have? What if I decide to give you a lesson and mark you as KOS for my crew? What if you end up getting manhunted on ALL servers and get capped 24/7? [EDIT]And trust me, as much as you`d want this to happen, it gets old REALLY fast if you`re not winning. And frustration sets in awfully quick afterwards. You only have 2 choices at that point: change your name or lay low (as in not play MP) until they get bored, IF they get bored - none of which are extraordinarily fun.
I am within my right, since I am giving you a lesson - a harsh lesson, mind you, but you DID shoot unprovoked, so you kinda brought this onto yourself. Am I griefing you? Hell yea! But the fun part is, it is entirely your fault.
I bet you`ll report me AND my crew for bad sportmanship, just because you can no longer play the game - even if it was 100% your fault for being in that situation.
This is why I don`t particularily like a game policed by players - because I BET you`ll pose as Virgin Mary and all victim-like, saying "Oh, I`ve been bullied by them big bad crew peeps", when, in reality, you kinda missjudged the opposition a bit.
[EDIT]And an automated system has no way of knowing if you dying 50 times in 30 minutes is due to a vendetta (since I can have friends not part of a crew, or crew verbal alliances) or someone griefing you for the sake of griefing.
