Bottom line: (as if)

 

If they can't show you exactly what AND when you did something that could label you a "Bad Sport", then it shouldn't be done.

 

Punishing people for exploiting THEIR faulty programming is reprehensible and unethical. Especially if they can't provide some kind of rap sheet. The Bad Sport system is vaguely defined and loosely enforced. Therefore, it is a joke. I kicked on the game about a month ago and was in a bad sport session. I had no idea why or what for, and still don't know to this day. IDK how long I was in there for seeing as how I just played some other games for about a week. I was extremely put off by the whole thing. This is because I had been playing online for over a month, played and completed over 1000 "jobs", and had only blown up maybe 5-6 PVs and backed out of maybe 15-20 jobs.  The whole system is ridiculous and I, for one, am willing to ridicule it until it's either fixed, or gone altogether.

 

"Bad Sport" is seriously the only gripe I have with the game. Even though I have only experienced it the one time, I don't like the fact that it even exists. If it MUST exist, then it needs to have the terms clearly defined and presented to us. This system is THE ONE THING that keeps me from calling GTA V, the greatest game ever made.

 

If they just unattached PVs from the whole thing, I think that would be enough TO NOT QUESTION the system. There are clearly more punk MFs hiding behind their PVs, than there are punk MFs gratuitously destroying other's PVs. So, that's how I see it....If you are one of the people defending this obviously flawed system, then you are probably one of gutless turds hiding behind his PV. If you are defending it for any reason other than that, I can just assume that you are one of the "teacher's pet" types. The classroom tattle-tail.

Anybody know actually how many PV cars you have to blow up to get a Bad Sport rating now? I swear I have blown up like 35 PV's in my tank & I still don't have the BS rating.

Nobody knows, except Rockstar.

 

I think people would moan a lot less if they actually understood how the rating system worked.

It pissed me off to no end when they released patch 1.06 and simply stated in the patch notes "Made some changes to Bad Sport and its penalties"....care to elaborate a bit more ???!!!

 

Nope. Radio silence. Under "bad sport" in gtawiki, there should be nothing but a giant picture of a black hole. Because that's what exactly it is, a giant mess that can suck you in and you don't have a f*cking clue how it works!

After doing my time my timer started increasing by itself. If you do a few missions from lester and Martin it will bring your time down to 00d00h00m. But I'm still stuck in here. Will update later if I figure it out.

yeah i dont think anybody has been permidently let out, but as you said sometimes on start uo you will be put into good sport lobbies, ive found , going back and fourth from SP to MP will sometimes put you in good sport servers, but simply pressing "find new session" will not

Is anyone stuck in some sort of "Dodgy Player" limbo ?

 

I've blown up maybe 10 cars across the last two weeks and I'm really struggling to shake off the dodgy status. I was working just fine for me before 1.06, but regardless of how many missions/jobs I complete and the little amount of PVs I've destroyed I'm still only one or two PVs away from dodgy.

 

I don't mind THAT much since I'm still in GS lobbies, but it's really annoying to "technically" be unable to blow up any PVs whatsoever. Starting to wonder if it's not a bug and I could destroy more if I wanted to, but I'm really not keen to try.

 

I've posted already posted a thread on the Rockstar Support wesbite, but it hasn't really gotten any attention since everybody is fixating on the 00y00m00d issue at the moment.

 

Anyone else in a similar predicament ? :/

Bad Sport - all I can say is it's the worst idea ever foisted upon the GTA franchise. I would like to have a chat with the person or team that gave it the green light.

 

If you blow up a car you should just pay the insurance. The punishment for an in-game crime should itself be in-game. Bad Sport is a deus ex machina solution; it's external to the law and rules of the game. It's an inherently flawed idea.

I've destroyed an extreme amount of PVs, sometimes up to 10 in one session (without doing any job) but I stopped when the warning message got changed from the usual "BAD SPORT! behave yourself or else..." to being something more serious like " this is your final warning" or something like that.  then I just stopped destroying PVs for a while. doing jobs etc instead...

 

And I always get 2k everytime i log on for "continued good sport" So I really dont see the issue with the bad sport thing, It's worked good for me, and I have still caused massive mayhem! thats why I think that people who go into BS really has deserved it! 

 

But I agree that it seems it has been ruined because of the 00D00H timer flaw... :/ that's to bad, but I'm sure R* will figure it out soon. and until then. HAVE FUN SERVING YOUR SENTENCE, KIDS! :D

 

and oh, people who whine about a game on a forum, really need to get a grip on life! go hug a tree for example, it's been scientifically proven to boost mental health ;)

Blowing up a PV SHOULD be a Bad Sport flag!

I've had people just randomly race up to me, throw a C-4 on my car then drive away and blow me, and my car, up.  Total PUSS move!

Is that the only way you can get a kill?

REALLY???

 

Didn't anyone see Pulp Fiction?

You don't f*ck with a man's car. It's just against the rules!

Mmmkay???

my timer was at 00d00h00m for 10 days, 1.08 update removed my bad sport status. I also got a response from R* support that the timer issues should have been fixed with 1.08

They need to be more strict with this stuff.  I'm in passive mode and my car gets blown up by a tank and I have to pay 12,500... alrighty then.  Makes perfect sense.

Sorry if this isn't in the right section.

 

I killed a guy with a bounty on him of $2,000,000,000. At the timeI didn't know that, I just knew he had a bounty on him. I needed cash so I killed him. 

 

My question is: 1. Am I going to be banned? 2. Can I get rid of this money some way?

on xbox360 players have -PAID- to play online with a Gold membership

 

that means players have that cheated/glitched are going to be banned, we all agreed to a long "terms of service" before we first joined and created our characters

 

players that figure "everyone has billions so no one can be banned" are only fooling themselves

I only blow up PVs in self defense. I have 70 mil so paying insurance barely makes a dent in my wallet but most of these douche bags have a higher top speed than my car so there's no way for me to outrun them and I'm a terrible shot from inside a car so blowing them to hell is usually the only option I have. What about these situations huh? Lots of people who get their car blown up probably deserve it but this blind system doesn't take that into account.

Learn the map, drive through alleys...side streets. Trying to outrun an Entity in a straight away....not going to happen. But you can lose MOST fast cars with sharp turns.

Also...running up into those parking structures is great. I love speeding around the ramp corners.
