They report you because they keep dying lol.   Thing that amazes me is that most of these people refuse to spawn in passive mode no matter how many times they die.

No, people should be reported for glitching, hacking, or even swearing (if you're that anal retentive), but reporting somebody for playing the game in a way that Rockstar obviously condones is just stupid.  I don't get all the butthurt from anti tank or anti jet people, just change sessions or go invite only if it's that much of a problem.    If Rockstar thought the tank was overpowered, they would have modified it or pulled it all together.  The fact that they got rid of tank sniping and stopped making tanks pay for personal vehicles is proof enough that that Rockstar is on the side of the tankers, so complaining about it won't change anything.  When faced with a tank, I pull out my tank, or else I switch sessions or go invite only.  It's just a game.  Trolls can only bother you if you let them, so don't play into their hands.

Yeah, I understand people being affronted when they're squished by a car or tank when in passive mode, but the ones who just repeatedly run into you begging for death are usually the ones who report you.

You sir, speak too much sense for this forum. I'm afraid I'm going to have to ask for your badge and gun. Clear out your desk and leave your ID with Marge on your way out.

I'm not complaining, mate. I'm asking for a little insight, and a few opinions, that's all.

I think these are just random messages popping up when you get disconnected. Ain't nobody got time to report sh*t like that... Unless you in the gtaf crew, because I've only seen people on this forum use the report feature.

People need to stop reporting people for using something that is given to them and is fair game. It's free roam, you're allowed to do as you please as long as it's not cheating.

Theyre kids though man... Thats the burden of this generation of gaming. We have to share with mindless toddlers who report people for no reason, troll, always use their mics to scream etc.

Ive never been reported to my knowledge while in a tank or lazer, but I rarely use both those vehicles anyway.

You must hate that you can't report NPCs for repeatedly swearing at you when simply cruising the streets :p

People report you for anything, especially those players that take bounty hunting to another level & get mad they keep getting killed over & over.

Tank users who go out of their way to kill you when you're in passive mode deserve to be reported. When they behave like the fate of the world hangs on your death, running you over constantly or knocking you about with the tanks cannon, when all you are doing is going to the shops in passive mode. Then i say those players bite of their nose to spite their face im afraid.

SBXHU2S.gifNo they don't, because the tank user is trying to teach that fool passive mode is not fool proof & to use it correctly

I hate tanks and lazers , but I would never report them. I pretty much only report wall-breachers, god moders, racists and obvious glitchers

Even if u grief u shld not be reported, i though it's gta... Killing isn't wrong.

 
Got to disagree. But this all depends on your term of griefing.
 
Drive by kill me come back around after a bit or so that's fine.
 
But if your tracking me and spawn killing me. That's griefing.
Unless I'm in a mood where I simply don't care, or I feel like ticking you off by being in passive and make it so you can't kill me and your tool enough to stand araound trying till your bored and leave in which case I won. I do report for that when i'm fed up cause it just gets stupid.
There's fun and then there's just being a jerk ya feel me?
 
But reporting or kicking for cars? Pfft don't even care. That risk is on you and has nothing to do with me.

After you go into passive mode, is there really a need to reporting someone, even if they are legitimately using an in game mechanic? Using a tank make be a dick move, but I would never report someone fit using one even if they kill me multiple times, even though that doesn't happen since I enter a quick job to teleport away.

 

 

Oh naw when I'm being a passive mode jerk I don't report them. Like you said there's no point and I already feel superior cause they got bored and left. LOL Yeah I've pulled jobs to vanish on them to that's a fun tactic.

I don't see a reason to report wall breachers if they're destroying the world. If they snipe me or kill me while they're in there that's a different story. I don't care what glitch yu use to mess with the cops or pedestrians but don't use them against players it's a rookie move and cheating.

 If Rockstar thought the tank was overpowered, they would have modified it or pulled it all together.  

 

Yeah, because Rockstar are perfect online game design geniuses and anything they put in GTA0 is right.  GTA0 is the best of all possible worlds; it is functioning exactly as it is designed, exactly as it should be, exactly as they want it.  Which is, "WHITE DOT BAD; KILL WHITE DOT."  Deep, deep game design, for sure.

So because they allow you to kill people, that MUST be how it was intended to be played? The only genius I see here is you.

I understand why tank drivers get reported. It is for noobs and trolls but lazer needs some skills, reporting a lazer pilot is stupid because if he kills you, he plays good and killing you with good respected flying skills.

I get more intimidated when a tank is roaming the streets, but I still don't report if they haven't killed me. I've had a couple army jets swoop past in the past day or so and neither tried to harm me, so that's fine.

I've never seen the game played any other way.
