In my personal opinion, not at all. These mastodons are ridiculous and the people operating them are no better

 

They are, in my opinion, a huge nuisance.

 

I mean I don't know, i'm probably saying this because everyone is filthy rich and like level 400 nowadays so I mean..

 

Sorry if this is just a childish rant but I'm starting to get a little flustered with the tank ordeal. A lot of the matches I've been in have been practically unplayable, to be honest

Friendly Freeroam - No friendly fire

 

Normal Freeroam - What we currently have

 

Hardcore Freeroam - No tanks, no sticky bombs, free aim only

 

Completely remove bad sport.

 

Problem solved.

in a map so big , there is plenty of room to play far away from a tank or 2 or 3 or 5 , but you have to want to. and your complaint only stands in free roam, which is only a portion of the online experience, tanks have been around since the original grand theft auto, and they are here to stay

I guess you're right, didn't really look at it like that.

Was thinking the exact same thing. I think that'd be much better in all honesty

It would make tank whores rage that much more when they get blown up, since they had to drive it all the way back to Los Santos.

This works for me. As did the guy with the various roam options.

 

I have voted no but really I dont mind them but something needs to change with them. Some people just spam them over and over and over again and that gets boring. 

 

Its all very well saying move someone else on the map but most tank spammers will just follow wherever people are.

Good analogy.  Dinosaur brains in a dinosaur vehicle.  I agree with OP. 

 

In keeping with the other people making suggestions, (and this has already been mentioned) perhaps there should be a special lobby for military vehicles.  They are out of balance.  Especially since people can get tanks at much lower level than RPGs.  That particularly f*cked things up.  And one or two RPGs should take out a tank.  Then things would be more balanced.

Definitely. Like, i'm not against tank usage to be honest, it's just how they are obtained that annoys me. They should only be accessible through FZ

or maybe a cool down afta the tank gets destroyed.

Let me say this, if they didn't include tanks.  You be asking should they have personally left out the buzzard.  And if they also did that the next be should they have left out the jet.  And of course if they did that. Then it would be should they have allowed tanks, buzzards and jets online.

Thanks, lol. Didn't even realize that was an analogy at first actually

 

And yeah agreed, taking out a tank is a chore itself.

The best suggestion, they will have to drive all the way to LS if they want to kill someone.
Besides it's more real.

Tanks aren't a problem unless you're a lousy player who doesn't know how to deal with them or, guess what, doesn't know how to join a new session. It's not that hard. I don't know what lobbies you guys are in but people spawn killing in tanks is an uncommon occurrence for me. Stop whining. If you're really that horrible of a player then don't join lobbies that have any 70+ ranked players.

Having to deal with the same f*cktards over and over who just spam tanks gets old really quick. 

 

Pretty much every lobby I join has at least one of these douchebags.

Yeah because the matchmaking works so well doesnt it?

 

What about new players? They CANT deal with them. 

 

They are in every session now. It sounds like you are getting lucky still. I never used to see any tanks then all of a sudden boom they are everywhere. Its the same thing every time too. They trundle around and shoot everything in sight. I usually hang around on roofs and even if they cant reach me they shoot again and again and again. Its ridiculous. I cant get at them as im stuck and they cant get me as im too far away. What a waste of time. 

 

They are just boring lobby killers

Are you serious ? There are tanks everywhere, and guess what people below rank 70 can get a tank because of the glitch!
Is not being a bad player, tanks doesn't have any kind of restriction it's stupid.

Ask yourself this: what are you doing that makes you a target for these trolls? Tanks are slow. There are only certain areas where Pegasus will spawn them, you have the ability to go off radar, you have the ability to join a different session. And that's all assuming you're not good at tank hunting. If you're good at tank hunting then you have even more options at your disposal.

I legitimately just don't understand all the butthurt from victims of tank spawning. You're not defenseless. I've been tank spawned before. Half the time I'm able to kill them, the other half I join a new session and presto - problem solved!

I actually dont think I have seen a rank 70+ tank user for a while. They are always 30ish. Oh or like 437. 

 

Tanks could be fun if everyone not in a tank would work together to take them out. I remember reading a few days back about NPCs coming in to take over LS and everyone had to join up to fight them off. The game needs more stuff like that I think.

I was wondering how long it would take to blame cash cards!

 

You are right in a way though, they wont get removed, nor should they, its a staple of GTA. But for gods sake nerf them a bit in terms of how easy it is to get one and spam in them.

Basically GTA0 boils down to two simple modes based on legacy video games: 

 

1.  GTA0 freeroam is like PACMAN with tanks.  You see a tank turning down your block, you run to the next block over. 

 

2.  GTA0 racing is like Burnout Paradise, without the over-the-top collision effects, just the collisions.

yeh thats wot i suggested above

 

raise the rank requirement

 

or add a 10 or 15 minutes cool down after the tank is destroyed. 15 mins is plenty of times to teach girefers a lesson or to get away if u cant be asked

 

 

 

edit : altho i did mention cash cards, i know u dont need to buy 1 to unlock the tank, it's only $1.5mil

 

but still...pegasus unlocks work as time/cash sink to keep the player engaged wiv the game

 

they remove unlocks and in a weird way they remove content

They aint THAT slow. Especially if you are on foot. 

 

People joining new sessions will never be the answer to any of the games issues. Its where people can meet up and make friends/clan members etc. 

 

Radar doesnt always work. It seems to be timed perfectly where you can do whatever you need to do to take a tank out and then just as you are about to do it the timer runs out and you get flattened. Also Off Radar is level 50 aint it? There are a lot more lower levels around now.

Exactly, I've joined up with others to take tanks out. Hell, there's nothing more satisfying then taking out a tank spawn killer with your own tank with help from others or not, and then spawn killing him until he leaves the session. You know, give them a taste of their own medicine.

I guess what I don't understand is that there are HUNDREDS, literally hundreds of things to do in GTA V Online. Why would anyone who can't fight off or flee from a tank waste their time getting killed by one repeatedly when there are HUNDREDS of other more enjoyable and competitive things to do - most of them accessible simply by pressing the start button.

I don't mean to sound angry, but I this all just seems to be self-imposed frustration. Don't let a silly tank ruin a game for you.

They target everyone and usually try to spawn kill whoever they can. Whenever I'm a victim to this I destroy their tank and more often then not they get mad and hunt me down in their never ending supply of tanks. Having to avoid some butthurt noob in his tank the entire time I'm in a lobby is just retarded. Having to constantly destroy their tanks is just as retarded. Sure I can just join a new lobby, but it will only be a matter of time before the cycle repeats itself again.

 

I didn't buy GTA to constantly fight tanks. If I wanted to do that sh*t I would be playing Conquest on Battlefield as an Engineer.
