Literally this passive mode is the dumbest thing I have ever heard, and if there is no way to disable it, online will fail from its abuse. it's like Rockstar said " hey how do we give players god mod to lineup shots or sneak up on other players in plain sight?" "easy, just give them god mode until they want to shoot so they can get easy he's shots while transitioning out of passive mode.

I think your all just  worried, you cant get away with your immature crap in this game as you could in others and it  bothers the sh*t out of you deal with it just like  the folks who want it, and agree with it had to deal with all the immaturity in other games, I think passive mode is a great idea.

they might have it were you can't keep switching from it, There might be a delay on how often you can switch.  Plus lets say they miss. then you could kill them or you see someone coming close go away or have friends with you.

It may be a good idea for some, but we need to ability to disable it or it it is a game breaker for others.

Players utilizing drag queen mode need their own server.

This isn't f*cking Mario Kart, even then you could get hit.

It likely will be a completely different server.  As in RDR with Friendly and Hardcore modes.

 

Even if it's not, there's bound to be some sort of Lock should someone damage someone else.

 

They're not going to let me ProGamerGov and then turn on my Passive Mode God Mode  immediately. 

 

 

 

Passive Mode is a good thing.  It gives people a refuge from the Buzzard Tards that plagued GTAIV

So bad sport is bad, passive mode which will likely be a separate thing is bad.

 

You just want to spawn kill people and then insult them when they quit because they can't do anything don't you?

Wouldn't surprise me if they had Passive specific-servers added as well.

 

For a normal Server, there could also be areas where Passive is turned off automagically, so you would have a choice as a Passive Player, to enter that area or not.

 

Turning Passive On/Off will definately have a cooldown-timer as well as not being able to "Passive" mid-combat, so you can't turn Passive On/Off continuosly without having to wait quite a while between switching.

 

Maybe there could be a Location/building you need to enter to turn on/off Passive as well.

 

Let's just wait until 1st October and see how they will implement it.

I would hope the option to disable it completely would exist.

We know you do.

 

But wait until 1st October and see how it's implemented in-game before assuming things.

 

There could be Non-Passive PVP-servers implemented etc

Why would Rockstar host the servers like that? I was under the impression it would be like GTA IV for starting a server.

Passive could be implemented so that it cannot be switched on by a whim, (but instead require some time and effort to switch), we do not know that yet how it's implemented.

Passive mode is disabled whenever the player pulls out their weapon. that includes selecting it in the weapon wheel, so no, they dont have any advantage. they cant attack anyone and you cant attack them

Stfu.

And most definately, you would not be able to switch back to Passive while in mid-combat.

 

The main question is though, how long cooldown it will be going from Aggressive to Passive.

 

Clearly the Player would not be able to do the switch without some sort of delay, otherwise a Player could gun down some players, and then switch back to Passive right afterwards, which i assume is not how it works.

 

It will definately not be enabled to be abused as a God-mode, switching to and fro instantly.

 

We will just have to wait and see how the system is implemented.

I'm thinking in order to turn passive mode on/off you will have to goto your phone > settings and then toggle it from there, similar to sleep mode in single player. Passive mode is in NO WAY god mode. If I'm in passive mode riding a motorcycle at top speed and hit a car I HIGHLY doubt I will not lose health, therefore NOT GOD MODE. Passive mode is a way for players to enjoy San Andreas with their friends without being bothered by middle school kids who want to troll a great game. If you don't like passive mode I'm sure there are options to enter a world where passive mode is disabled.

Hate to break it to you jeffy but R* said passive mode isn't a server. You turn it on during free roam. You can't be shot, you can't shoot.

But it can be disabled right? Because I don't want that sh*t on when I'm playing. Even without holding a weapon, passive mode would allow a player to get a vantage point or get not a nice position before engaging a player. This is f*cking god mode for PvP, and should have the ability to be disabled for free roam.

It'll likely be on by default, with the option to disable it before starting a lobby.

 

I don't support it but I also don't know how it'll work yet. Doubt you have anything to worry about. We'll find out soon.

I assure you there are more important things in this world to concern yourself with. The reason passive mode is in there is so people who wanna have fun in the game can get away from buzzard tryhards like yourself

I think the OP wants the ability to just kill players in free roam and ruin their day. Passive mode Is an awesome idea and you are crying cause you can't just pop on random servers and try to kill everyone. You think I can't get a good vantage spot while in non passive mode? Are you that good where you are gonna see me before I get to a good spot? How about you stfu and stop trolling and wait till the 1st like the rest of us before blabbing your mouth about stuff you know nothing of.

Those people should play single player then. 

 

 

This "mode" destroys the point of GTA, LITERALLY, its a grand theft auto game, you steal, you kill, you fight and you destroy stuff, its not some Smurfs village multiplayer game where papa smurf and his children can hang about taking a ride in a happy childish rainbow roller coaster. 

 

If you go Multiplayer and you don't expect to be killed consistently either get better or don't play multiplayer. OR you can get a bunch of friends and agree on specific rules but don't expect to make others obey them since no matter what, you do not own the server like the casual private lobby system GTA IV had.

 

this mode is stupid, if one pisses you off by killing you over again, get a friend and kill him back, or just bitch about it to rockstar and ruin the fun to the rest of us.

There's really no point of arguing anymore or stating opinions, it's clearly going to be made official, they can't just scrap the idea based on a few opinions. If you don't like it, don't whine, seriously. Pack it up and call it a day. You want the fun of killing whoever you so please? Go to VI or Black Ops 2. They changed the mechanics and based on a general majority on things they want removed or put into the game they went ahead, and did it. 

 

Their purpose isn't to let a bunch of immature "trolls" do what they do best.. it's to provide an equal balance so that everyone's happy. 

 

"GTA V continues to amaze and continues to evolve into a dynamic experience for mature gamers, who continually support the gaming community. Much of what Rockstar continues is the future of social mediums – an alternative way to interact with like-minded individuals who choose to participate in their entertainment activities rather than watch with a remote controller. The beauty of the world of online gaming is the multiplayers are able to interact with one another in a vast, open-world environment and experience an ever-evolving paradise of virtual reality."

 

That's exactly what they're doing. They put all their efforts into making this game as fun as possible, making BILLIONS of dollars on top of it all, and you're complaining about one little thing? That you can't troll? Please. Pack it up then, cause' I have some bad news for you.

I'm pretty sure I heard that the passive mode is something you can only enable after dying to prevent yourself being spawnkilled over and over again.

 

After turning it off you wont be able to turn it on while still alive and it will only become active again once you die and respawn

It seems you have issues mate, or just like to fight. Because what I am saying is for it to be 100% optional.

They said that Passive mode will be disabled once you've fired your weapon.
