First time poster on this thread, sorry if it's not the right place for a story like this.
So decided to sell the product from my documents business - started in a fairly quiet session. I had one friend with me, and there were two other CEOs doing their own thing. Mission is three trash trucks - we gotta move fast. Our crew mostly does racing through so driving well isn't an issue. Make it back in time halfway, but by this time the session's filling up. We had seven by the time we hit LS first time, it's getting close to sixteen now. Things are going well as I get drop number 14, at the Chinese place opposite the Del Perro Marina.
Then everything goes wrong. Rocket slams into the side of me - its' an Oppressor. The truck is stopped and won't move - I can't tell whether it was a dodgy bit of scenery, or if the rocket had done enough damage. My friend's on the way, so best thing is not to give a target. I get out of the trash truck, rip him off his bike with the AP rounds on the Combat MG (Kind of a waste on players as it turns out, but works beautifully on those idiotically tough NPCs).
Since my controller is a bit dicky at times, I get my friend to get in the trash truck and try and move it himself while I deal with this prick - he's only level 34. He manages to headshot me though, and kills my friend in the trash truck. Then he gets on his oppressor and blows it up.
Now this isn't unusual - I'd got 14/15 deliveries and still got $120k for it. At the end of the day that's what you expect and things had gone a lot better than they could have. What got me was the next bit. He went passive (still on his oppressor) and drove around near us, before sending a text message.
"I was trying to help."
Seriously? Helping by firing rockets from your griefer-cycle? And what the f*ck did he expect us to do when he shot first and started approaching our missions? So I give a very cynical 'really?' text back, and hop back in the buzzard for my friend to take us back to the business so I can shut it down for now. Wouldn't you know it, he goes back off passive mode and blows up the helicopter. Another text.
'You should have let me in. -_-' (Smiley included)
He goes passive again and drives right next to me. I send another text 'I just want to play this game with my friend'.
Order my Nightshark, start driving back. He tries to get in - I tend to leave my vehicles on 'everyone' access just because it makes it less of a pain in missions. So I change it to crew + friends so he's left behind. But he keeps going, in passive, shadowing us in his Oppressor. I let my friend drive some of the way since he's not given a Nightshark a spin yet, and in the passenger's seat I give one final message:
'Can you leave us alone please?'
Nope. He's like us like sh*t on a shoe. Follows us all the way up to my document business as I shut it down, waiting outside, still Passive. Then I headed to my bunker while my friend logged off to mod a car again. I spent about ten minutes in there and he was outside all the time, and added me as a friend on PSN. Suffice to say he got blocked before I logged off for the night.
Now I don't mind the occasional bit of friendship online, but mostly that's come about via the occasional toot of the horn when passing at LS Customs, appreciation for each others' cars. Or letting them have a go in one of the new vehicles for a while, especially if they're at low levels. But this guy wasn't like that. First, he had an Oppressor with missiles - so he clearly had a bunker, and MOC, and enough money to speed research to get the missiles. He also turned up with an X80 Proto which solidifies it further as the car of choice for absolute twats. Like, is he trying to impress us with how much money he has?
Secondly, if you attack someone's money delivery... fine. At the end of the day you can't stop that Rockstar literally encourages you to do it. It's a risk you take in public sessions. But for god's sake at least be honest with it. Don't pretend you want to be my friend after you affected my chance at getting money, and do the whole 'passive dance' nearby. And then pretend it's my fault you're blowing me up.
Sorry again if this is the wrong place for a rant like this, I needed to let it out somewhere. People who are too clingy and 'friendly' are as bad as people who are trying to aggravate you and this was a mix of both of them. Easily the worst player I've ever met online.
