here's a boring GTAO story id like to share. its probably TL for most people to want to read, so if you don't wanna read it, cool, back button now.
So I was driving around in my suburban when I saw some guys in cars meeting up and some tanks around by them, about 5 players total. Normally I'm not friendly, but they weren't shooting so I pulled up close and stopped next to the tank and the guys in the cars. moments later, the tank blew me the f*ck up. they're all laughing over the mic.
aight, thats how you want to play.
I went to go get my tank, came back, crushed the guys in their PV's and blew up the two guys in the tanks (their tanks were damaged because it only took like 2 hits each). OK so they were all mad as hell, don't know why tho. surely they expected some sort of retaliation for blowing me up in my PV.
about 20 mins later real time they caught up to me and brought their new tanks. They blew me up and i accidentally sent the dude an invite to a 1v1 (Never do that stupid sh*t) So I respawn and this dude spawnkills me 11 times before i can escape into the subway, then I hear him on the mic "Dude he went underground, hey he can't see you, he can only see me, so hurry up and go kill him"
Im thinking in my head, "are you serious, these guys gotta come 5 deep to attack me, knowing i can't see them on the radar" I evened the field, quickly called lester to remove myself from the radar and abandon the 1v1.
By this time Im running down the train tracks and i hear a sniper bullet hit the wall close to me. Tankboy's minions had caught up to me in the subway tunnels. He kept taking shots at me, I kept running as fast as i could (which is slow) and finally got to a cut where i could hide.. waited a few moments, pulled out sniper, one shot killed the dude.
I kept running, the next guy came, i hid behind a wall and as soon as he got close, pulled out Auto shorty and blasted him and shot his body until he respawned.
I then left, because they had got enough cheap kills off me, and felt satisfied that i could kill two of them on foot before leaving. so, i guess I'm a bitch for leaving, but most people would have pussied out once they started getting spawnkilled by tanks. I couldn't get revenge on tank boy, but i humiliated two of his friends who couldn't get the job done for him.
Moral of the story: I suck at gta. but these guys suck way more, and they sh*t talked me the whole time. Im not saying tanks shouldn't be in the game, but respawn should have a little more distance.
