Never accepting a lift from a stranger again lol.
Got in a car with a guy who basically hid like a little bitch and let me and another guy do all the work during a survival session. He had stopped and beeped for me to get in. I got in, packed a bong IRL, and looked up to see him pull over to the side of the road, get out of his own car, shoot me, then left the session.
Now I've said this in other threads, I really don't care if I get randomly attacked. But why leave the session? Its the people doing that who should get bad sport, and yet I hear of people getting bad sport for defending themselves from these random attacks.
That's not the same thing though, that's not "randomly killing" someone. That's purposely targetting someone, getting them to trust you long enough to drop their guard, getting close to them without dying because they think they can trust you, and then doing the exact opposite to them by killing them.
It's a pretty scumbag move. These rare occurences are the people I save my tank for. It's like, oh, you wanted to kill someone you knew wouldn't fight back? Well, allow me to teach you what it feels like, you cowardly bitch.
One time there were these two guys at Ammunation, one inside the store and one outside the store. I walked up next to the guy outside the store, said hi on the mic and did a smoking action to demonstrate my lack of killing intent. He tells the guy inside the store that I'm there and friendly, that I could have killed him but didn't. Guy inside the store comes out, hangs out with us for 10 seconds, then the next time I put my weapon away to smoke, he shoots me in the face.
He then starts laughing over the mic (I don't think he realized I'd been on the mic), and goes "Get in the car, let's go! I don't want to worry about getting revenge killed!" Well, you generally shouldn't kill someone named after the angel of death and vengeance if you don't want to be revenge killed, on the off-chance it reflects their personality at all.
They drove to his apartment half a block away and hid inside. I called Pegasus as I drove over there, rigged the outside of his garage with sticky bombs, went to get the tank, and then brought it back and waited a block away from the guy. I watched the radar; the first guy I'd met came out the front door, and the one that shot me came out the garage. Boom, he died. Then they started talking some more.
"Oh sh*t, it's that guy I killed earlier, he must have been waiting for me to leave."
"No way, I was out here already, there's no one here."
"Well it showed his name, so it was definitely him."
I brought the tank around while he was still dead, parked it right in front of his apartment, and proceeded to spawnkill him to make sure he couldn't get back. After being killed a dozen times, he starts crying on the mic, like "oh my god! all I did was kill you once for standing next to my car! and now you're going to keep killing me for it? this is bullsh*t!" Just him, not his friend. His friend did throw a grenade at the tank one time, I immediately killed him, and he proceeded to not attack me again lol.
After the second guy finally decided to get in a random car and run in the opposite direction, all the while crying over the mic about how unfair it is that his actions had consequences, I sent him a message along the lines of "You were defenseless in the store, but I showed you mercy. You repaid my kindness by killing me when I was defenseless. You're a coward that doesn't deserve mercy."
Then he started acting really apologetic and said he was sorry for being such an asshole, so I replied "Oh okay then" and turned the tank around to leave lol. Pretty sure he just wanted to be left alone so he could go pick his friend up, but I figured it's more than you get out of most people either way.
Kill me once => INFINITE RETALIATION.
Yep, that's generally how it goes lol.
I do it because my crew is a griefer crew. We have to build notoriety somehow. Also, it is very entertaining and we always find new ways to grief people.
If you are in a "griefing crew" then you should know what the word "griefing" means, and that it doesn't include "killing people for no reason".
Maybe you're just in a normal crew that does normal things, like shooting people, but you think it's a "griefing crew" because you don't know what a griefer is. It's been misused a few times in this thread, but I've gotten used to it on this forum since a lot of people here seem to be fairly inexperienced as gamers. Can't cut you any slack when you misuse the word "griefer" while claiming to be a professional one though.
Also, even if you were in a "griefing crew" (which it doesn't sound like you are, at all), don't you see a problem with having a tag after your name that informs everyone else? Gaining notoriety is the last thing anyone who wants to grief would do, since it will make your potential victims aware of what you're planning to do before they even meet you in-game.
Not that it matters, though. No one who "kills people for no reason" in order to gain notoriety as "a griefer" will ever actually have any notoriety to speak of, so it's a moot point.
