yeah yeah, I know... "There are already tons of threads about this".
But I thought I'd let people know just how bad this problem is.. (so be warned)
Ok, my online race record is 52-84, death match 2-2, parachute 4-6, Golf 1-0, 3-0 arm wrestling, I have done other competitive missions such as the "Top Fun" missions and several other ones. I have probably done around 10-15 of those types of missions. That gives a total of 164 (low balling the competitive missions just to make sure I don't favor my numbers)
I have done a lot of those NPC missions (lester, martin, gerald, etc...) I have done about 10 of those with random people and the others I have ONLY done with my wife or by my self (probably around 80 missions total... I found a list of all the missions and counted the ones I did, and I also repeated some).
I NEVER play online in free roam with other people. It's always invite only (I hate the way free roam is set up, but that's off subject). So I have done nothing "Bad Sport-ish" in free roam, ever.
ok, so between my 164 online matches and the 80 missions that's a total of 244 (and that's a low estimate). The real number is actually higher.
I have been keeping track of every time I quit out of a session with other people (including my wife) because I am afraid of this Bad Sport thing and not being able to play with my wife online (I have read how other people can no longer get connected to their friends because they are a bad sport and their friend is not)
Ok, so here is how bad it is (al though there is good news). I have quit out of 5 secessions exactly. So that's 0.02% of the sessions I have quit out of. Here is the good news though... I'm not a "Bad Sport"...... But I did get a message (No, not the one that's pops up at the top left of the screen that says something along the lines of.... "you quit, if you continue you will be a bad sport" when you quit a session). The message I got said "You are being a bad sport, if you continue, you will be punished".
0.02%!!! and I get a warning. Less than 1%... less than Half a percent. That's ridiculous.
I know it was just a warning, but still... 0.02%??? Come on R*.... now I'm scared to play online with other people incase something happens (phone call, door bell, have to leave suddenly, internet drops out, etc..) I'm afraid if I quit 5 times in my next 244 sessions, I'll become a bad sport.
not to mention I've been getting those $1,000 good sport rewards periodically. I just don't get it.
