I'm trying to start a poll, so I can send to R* on bad sports.

 

Here is my story,

 

------------------------------------------

 

I just got into a free roam lobby. I was in passive mode, not starting trouble, just modding my vehicle. Then this one guy starts chasing me (not firing shots), because I didn't want to die from a griefer, I decided "Hey, let me jump out of my vehicle and see what this guy is going to do"...So I got out (in passive mode where I can not die unless cashed), and then moved away from my vehicle. Well....No shots fired, and I heard a honk. Maybe he's a friendly. Let me get into his car, maybe then I'm safe ------ BOOM. I turn around, and see my car is exploded and the guy rushes off. Then a message going "ME22***ca, has destroyed your personal vehicle and will pay the insurance".

 

Well. This is Grand Theft Auto. And this being Grand Theft Auto, I want some payback. I call Mercenaries on him, while I call the insurance (which oddly enough, I ended up paying for which was $812). Anyway long story short, I ended up in a chase with him. I didn't want to get bad sport (because I've been there before...http://gtaforums.com...entry1063696338), so I decided let me use my Uzi on him instead. I managed to blow up 2 of his tires and kept shooting through the back window. When suddenly --- an explosion. He blew up, and I received a bad sport for it. I'm still unsure if he threw a grenade out his window (trying to kill me, but accidently killing himself), or if it was my Uzi that did it. I just know that when he blew up, he was stuck between the street and the lamp-post, trying to quickly get out.

 

------------------------------------------------------

 

 

Anyway, that's my story. Whether or not it was justified a bad sports, I don't care. What I do know, is that the system is messed up, and Rockstar should take some time to fix this, because this is not the Sims. People will have rivalries, people will make friends, while others will hate each others guts. In the end of the day, I still had fun with the guy, and wish I had his entire name so I could add him. But the bad sports at the moment is just wrong.

 

Here's what I believe.

 

I believe it should either be A.) removed completely. Or B.) only give bad sports to people that kill Passive Mode players. Personally I'd choose b. If the person is in Passive Mode, he obviously does not want contact with people. If I crash him to death - I get no offense. Where-as, I could attack someone that's not in passive mode - and by blowing up their personal car (which I pay for), I get a strike against my account.

 

 

------------------------------------------------------------

 

 

What are your opinions, please post it here, and PLEASE vote. Do you want Bad Sports to stay? Why or why not?

 

 

If you want Bad sports to stay - Please explain why

If you want Bad sports to leave or be tweaked - Please explain why/Or what Rockstar could do better.

 

Please keep this thread friendly as I genuinely want people's opinions and want to send this to Rockstar (as I want their opinion as-well).

That poll is retarded.

 

Everyone knows bad sport needs tweaking - but I doubt the same people who want it tweaked would want it removed altogether.

 

If you can't do a poll properly, don't do one man.

In the end of the day, it boils down to a yes or a no. 2 options is enough. Either remove/tweak or stay. I want feedback and opinions, and by your post, it makes you look like you don't have one.

If you just want opinions, then get rid of the poll. Two options is not enough when you're giving three answers to the question.

 

It's pretty simple maths mate, not sure what they taught you in Soviet Russia, but in the civilised world, 3 =/= 2.

Cheers mate :)

 

I'm of the opinion that bad sport should be tweaked.

 

Have it for multiple kills of a single player by another player in free roam where no 1v1 DM has been accepted by either player.

 

Have it for when someone who destroys a personal vehicle can't pay insurance.

 

Keep it for leaving missions early - just tweak it so that it's only for leaving missions early, not disconnects/kicks.

 

I'd even consider having it for replaying the same race a certain number of times in a row - say 3 or 5 maybe.

 

With this, i'd also add a FFA game mode, which is accessible the same way other game modes are, costs $1000 to enter, but allows you to play without fear of a bad sport rating, but also without the ability to level up or earn cash. This way, if you want to go f*ck sh*t up, you can do it without fear of being reprimanded for it, and you have your own game mode where what you do doesn't effect anybody who doesn't want to be there, and it can't be exploited to level up/gain cash too quickly.

It's fine as is, You won't get put in a bad sport lobby from accidentally or even puposely blowing up 1 or 2 cars. It's when you act like a dickhead repeatedly blowing up cars in a short space of time, Which is the way it should be.

You don't get bad sport for blowing up one personal vehicle. The people that try and claim you do are just wrong.  I've blown up 5 personal vehicles within a 24 hour period and I've not gotten bad sport. 

I believe there is a ratio and doing missions helps that ratio in your favor. If you do nothing but free roam it's my theory that you're more prone to becoming a bad sport.

Except it doesn't work like that. You obviously haven't been f*cked over by this broken system yet like Me and many other players have.

How've you been f*cked over by the system? (Just wanting to hear some people's stories on how the system worked/didn't work)

It's perfect. It's something I wish they would have thought of way back when in 2008 for IV Multiplayer. Don't like it, then don't act like a goof.

So over 60% want to keep bad sport on the "Official Remove Bad Sport Poll". I voted to keep and modify. Players who kill people in passive mode should be made bad sports too.

Keep it, but make changes. It needs to be there for those who only play to annoy others.

The only problem I see is when you blow up users cars.

I sure do. It was a place where you didn't have to earn money and level up to get weapons. It was a place where you could have intense 1 on 1 battles with someone without being penalized. It was a place where dog fights in helicopters were one of the best features of the game. It was a place where you could choose if you wanted to have cops in the game or not.

 

In other words... it was a FREE MODE where you could do whatever you pleased.

 

In GTA 5 none of that exists. Its a shame GTA 5 didn't keep what it had in GTA 4

IMO, it's been hard so far to even attain bad sport. I blew up 10 personal cars within a 30 minute time window. My guess is that you have really want it maybe. That's just my side of it so far.

My 2 cents....  

I think they should keep the bad sport system but let people decide if they want to take the ding for the bad sport or pay a fine..  

 

The fine should raise each time.. 1st offence 1,000, 2nd offence 2,000 3rd 4,000. and so on double it each time..
