You don't seem to understand the concept of roleplay.
I like to play as a cop but I don't send my traffic stop victims a message saying, "send me $100 in the next 2 minutes or I'll chase you".
I don't want to pay anyone sh*t. Is this mafia messaging really a thing? I'm seriously tired of knowing each families score.
Hell, I don't even know in the lobby who the hell is in a mafia which means I had NO interaction with them. I'm just in the Recent Players list. What gives?
You roleplay as a cop, but don't understand roleplaying as a member of the mafia?
It would be interesting to have you under my watch for a game or two, I don't think you'd fit into the LSPD very well at all.
You have to understand criminals in order to effectively combat against them. If you don't understand why people want to be in the mafia, you're in the wrong job, son.
I roleplay as a cop in terms of having a police car, the outfit, acting like a cop such as on patrol (take off map and player titles and look for suspicious driving, etc.) but I don't send messages to criminals. It's all fun and games, these mafias are taking things too seriously by getting the whole lobby involved into sh*t most people in said lobby doesn't care about. If it was a lobby with two families head to head, I would encourage that. Hell, it would remind me of the posse system in RDR and how my posse would get an invite from a 8-player posse and we'd either win or lose. We did it for fun or to settle a score that no one in my posse cared about (might be worth something to the other posse to win but for us it was to have fun).
If roleplay for you is like you're actually a real cop and be on constant alert and not pausing the game to take a piss, I wouldn't even want to be under your watch. Why do roleplay like a real job if there's no pay? It says it in the name: play. All you're doing is the role. I see roleplay as a mentality for a short time, not a lifestyle. But here I am judging people on how much they take their roleplaying. It's a huge thing and gives games a longer life and I respect and adore that...but this mafia thing is just "special". It's just the messages that annoy me, only that!
you know there are other adjectives in the english language than "dumb" and "stupid". right? some of them even got a different meaning.
I'll make sure to Google "what other words than dumb can I use to rage on GtaForums?"
Nah but seriously I had a very clouded mind when typing that one out. I'll make sure to send you a message asking for adjectives when making my next topic.
Also, English isn't my "native tongue". I do try to get better with words, though.
Glad to see some of you guys get these too. Anyway, I'm calm now (I get these messages every time I play in a public lobby, so...every day which can be quite absurd) and I'll probably get more tonight if I got time to play. The best tactic for me, instead of wanting to shoot them all down or respond to their messages like an idiot, is to just ignore them. I've blocked some of the messages that came in so I'll keep doing that. Also, I'm surprised this is a thing and this topic isn't locked because of that. Didn't know if I was the only one getting so many of these.
Anyway, I've said all I had to about this topic and I'll leave it be. Feel free to comment more, leave this to die or turn it into a spam fest for it to get locked (but I haven't seen this type of thread before in the GTA:O section, at least in the general section of it).
