Now I'm usually a passive-mode player in free roam, but occasionally I'd lose a car to some griefing idiot with sticky bombs when I'm in a store, or Ammu-Nation etc. 

I'd say in a given week, I'd get my car blown up 2-3 times by some random idiot. 

Since the patch, ZERO. The closest to getting my car destroyed was when I parked my Z-Type outside of the Eclipse Towers, some guy started trying to shoot my tires out (couldn't because they're bullet proof), and then he tried to kick the door a few times. Afterwards he pulled out a sticky bomb, then abruptly, put it away again. Then he ran off. 

 

Anyone else had this experience?

Nope, I've only had my Stinger GT a day and it's been blown up twice. Then I had my Monroe stolen (I forgot to put it back to friends and crew only after a mission I did with randoms) and when I kicked the thief out, they rigged it with stickies and explodified it out of spite. So, pretty much the same as in my experience.

Xbox 360. 

 

I've driven an Adder and left it in front of the Ammu-nation in Vinewood Hills, 2 people went past and came out, not a single sticky thrown.

Nope, can't say that I do. Do you know dictionary? How about "right clicking on word I clearly cannot spell and choosing spell check?" Do you know that one?

How do you kick people from your vehicle? I tried the "empty personal vehicle" option but it told me I'm not using my personal vehicle, and setting the vehicle access to no one didn't help either.

not if he's going to get on the same console and go looking for the OP to blow up his vehicle. which is pretty lame if he does IMO.

I must be in a different universe than the OP.  Sticky-bombers are still thriving in some of my sessions.  :*(

 

However, I will say, overall, freeroam is more boring since the money nerf.  We still have the sh*theads and the tankdouches, but none of the electric excitement that we had when lobbies had multiple money-sharers and billion dollar bounties.  Now that was a fun time.  :colgate:

 

Playing the game now, "the way it's meant to be played," is pretty much just getting sniped from a distance, sticky-bombed or tank-griefed.  Basically, it feels like being an individual roaming around in a war zone.  :/ Not too "GTA-like," if you ask me.  But I expected nothing else from a multiplayer environment.

Ooooh, douche money.

 

No, I am not heir to the Massengill fortune. I'm afraid I don't have douche money. I wish, though, I'd flip that to Proctor and Gamble so fast and then biggity bam I'm on a yacht and cruising the Med for hairy Greek ladies.

If you want to be a douche... pour gas on someone's PV with a bit of a gas trail on the ground, then light it by doing a burnout in your car. Other guy pays the bill for his car you just blew up.

You know, I thought it was gonna be all like, jumping over bridges, escaping capture, ganging up, calling out in vain "Johny!!!" as your team mate gets rolled by the coppers. Instead, it's just as you describe here, lone ranger traveling through the gauntlet of death.

I haven't had my cars blown up, but I have blown up others.

 

Part of the reason is because I like the thrill of a chase, but the other reason is to get random killers off my back, especially during bounties. I will admit though, grief or non-grief, it's become more competitive and fun just like it was before. I actually like it, it amps up the insane in the game and can make it a feat for survival.

I have only seen 4 tanks since last Thursday, but I still pretty much only drive my Sultan. Only seen a few cars blown up.

 

I'll admit that free roam is pretty boring right now. As much as tank griefers were pain, free roam was better when everyone had lots of cash.

Definite decrease in the amount of sticky bombing.

Last night though I saw a guy crash a chopper into the Maze tower so as I was passing I honked to offer him a lift. He got in and immediately his hand goes out the window holding a sticky.
So I then drive him at every white dot I could find as he bombed them all. Must've cost him a fortune, I got to watch the fireworks for free. Also the battle that ensued after we were eventually blown out of the car was the most fun I've had in weeks.

For me all was calm for about 6hrs after the money wipe, since then nothings changed, I have had cars blown up atleast 10 times a day and probably blow up the same amount, if i were in a bubble and knew nothing of the money wipe i'd not even notice it happened.

 

money is easy come easy go, it's not a behaviour changer of the masses.

While I have yet to see any sticky bombs thrown since the sweep, my Coquette has been blown up by tank fire no less than three times

Strangely enough my Entity and Cheetah are usually untouched: hand weapons will be fired at them to get the tires or me but nothing more.

I don't know if Bad Sport is around anymore. I've never gotten it but I blow up PVs all the time with grenade launchers. Sometimes I put a sticky bomb on the PV while they're in Ammunation then blow them up. No Bad Sport yet. I wonder if R* took it out or I'm just not blowing up enough PVs.
