After I noticed that player seems to be a little 11 year old girl (I can tell by the voice and she told another guy that she's 11), I stopped griefing her. I picked her up with my car and we did some stuff with aircrafts at the airport.

 
Just saw this. I'm sure it was innocent but a little creepy sounding and probably illegal in real life. Just sayin..:)

You mean picking up a little girl with your car? No never would do it in real life. Not even sure if illegal in my country, maybe it would be kidnapping no matter if you want to bring her to her home or god knows what. But in GTA kidnapping is allowed. Cops kill you for standing too close to them or to a criminal and for touching their car lol, but kidnapping is allowed. Just kidding.

To make people like you whine and mad. It's hilarious making people over a video game. Bunch of people were riding the hollywood vine bus yesterday had at least 6 people in there so they come to me honking so I drop a sticky on it and get in the. Detonate it, it's funny hearing them 'WOW , REALLY, DOOD, WTF ,' lmao they put a bounty on me and I just hid out in my apartment like a bossssss

Unfortunately I am. The FBI shut down US access to online real money poker sites April 15th, 2011. Among poker players that is called Black Friday.

I like those little red things that they put in the middle of green olives. I think they're called pimentos but I may be wrong. Anyway, I like those things.

Today I griefed a low level British girl and she was complaining over her mic, still friendly.

This was in free roam, so how did she complain over her mic that you froze her console with the towtruck? She rejoined?

Killing someone isn't griefing. They got mad because they lost, and the game rewarded you for winning. I'm not sure why you would believe sticky bombs were not intended to blow up people unsuspectingly. That's their primary purpose.
 

Killing players isn't griefing.

Someone that has experience playing online games and actually knows the meaning of basic terminology. Yay.

 

People like "Beach Bum Bandit" ruin the fun of Online.

Not sure how you drew that conclusion based on what he posted. The first part was objectively correct, the second part was his opinion about people who think "being killed" means "getting griefed". That doesn't suggest he spawnkills people in-game.

He asked if her console was frozen how would she complain over her mic.. given the frozen console, did she rejoin after restarting the console to rage.

 

Modded in towtrucks from single player are buggy and freeze peoples consoles if you get near them online.

 

Need that any clearer?

^ This.

 

You said you were griefing in free roam, and this describes the only method people use to grief in free roam. So how did she complain over her mic?

There was no tow truck. Then I guess I missunderstood the meaning of the word griefing.

Oh alright. What were you doing though? If they stayed friendly, I guess it must not have been too bad. I assume it probably involved PKing.

 

Were you spawn camping them on foot?

I just spawnkilled her. Isn't griefing a kind of annoying other players? I have trouble to translate this word in my language and therefore to understand its meaning.

Oh, no problem. Some people misuse it on these forums, which is probably why you had the wrong impression.

 

Griefing only has two requirements:

 

1) The person must be trying to frustrate/upset/irritate another player.

 

2) The person must be using a game mechanic in an unintended way.

 

Most people get pissed off when they lose, but the second part is why "winning" and "griefing" aren't the same thing :p

 

Sabotaging cooperative missions, and driving backwards to hit other players in races, are both examples of griefing in this game.

Alright thanks for that. But I tried to upset her, so it must have been griefing like you describe in point 1, not?

its funny when people do it to me... cause i just laugh it off, cause its a game.. put my gun away, and walk away, each time them killing me, and laugh at them.. which in the end, makes them pissed that they are not getting the reaction out of me they wanted.

Standing between a telephone pole and a wall in passive can make for some hilarious counter-trolling against Entity roadkill griefers (or other similar methods). Its possible to piss them off too.

to op, its a video game so they are just playing it..some sessions are pretty ugly; theres ways around it without having to leave, passive+rooftops etc 

 

Im not for or against griefing, because its just a part of the game i.e if there was such an occasion where you could not get someone to stop killing you even through asking kindly than the least you can do is report them for griefing.  I used to get griefed a bit, now I put them down..high ranks usually have the advantage via merryweather and lester etc; all these options exist for a reason=urban warfare.  If you are truly being stalked and griefed by a player you never so much as interacted with or treated with hostility-just go private get that haircut you wanted-do some missions but unless you have allies free roam is free for all.

I don't grief but I have killed many that tried to do it to me. I am great at capping people through car windows. I just lead them on a chase then spin around and before they know it they have a bullet in their head.

  The absolute purist griefers are just Children or Really Disturbed adults, spouting nonsense profanity and cursing you out for reasons ALL in their heads when you haven't even spoke to them, i've kicked these players from missions and I have left sessions when they are present its unfortunate and sad that they seem to forget its a game.  Sometimes I think they are joking but quickly realize that they are sick individuals both in front of a tv and in day to day life.
