Okay, eye catching title aside, what are the rules of engagement around when you have to pay MMI for the car replacement vs the other player?

I just had back to back situations where a player blew up my Zentorno and in the 1st instance I didn't have to pay the insurance premium to replace it....in the 2nd, another player blew it up in the same fashion (sticky bomb) and I had to pay $9k to replace it.

 

 

I don't mind paying $9k to replace it but doing that 5-6 times in a session can get old.  Is there some weird "you have to pay it in this situation but not this situation" kinda thing like when the tank is standing still vs not standing still?

I think the same goes for the tank, regardless of if it's still, or moving. It's BS, and hopefully R* patches it soon. I hate having to pay 10k+ for someone in a tank blowing up my vehicle. They should make it to where if the person who blows it up doesn't have any money, they'll have however much was insurance for the vehicle taken out as soon as they get enough to pay for it. Now that would be funny.

it used to be that if a player was poor, you had to pay insurance (still is that way, and it's pretty stupid)

 

the only reason you're paying insurance regardless now is because, as always, R* f*cked up something in the coding

Solution? Don't drive it in a crowded lobby. You know the nature of this game.

 

Is some sense of personal responsibility in a game that unheard of, that foreign?

I NEVER drive a PV in a lobby with people. One of two things is GONNA happen:

 

1. Some asshole's gonna blow it up. And they may be poor/hiding their money (however they do that), so you have to pay. At the minimum, it's a pain in the ass.

2. You WILL get involved in a scrape with the cops, they will take your car. I know it's only $250 to get it back, but it's a pain in the ass.

 

You do run the risk of picking up bounties from stealing cars, but, hey... Anyone who drives a $9,000-to-replace Super car around in Freemode deserves what they get anyway. Especially something as "hey, look at me!" as a Zentorno. You're just asking for an RPG up the ass.

yeah that problem would prevail in this game 'til R* use their head and add a debt system.

you bought insurance, you should never have to pay to recover your car, unless you destroy yourself.

with a debt system, MMI would replace your car for free as long as it was destroyed by other player.

that other player would have to pay xxx amount if money to MMI. hiding your money in second character wont work as the debt should be paid by any means, there for money can get debited out of the second character.

insurance have no exemptions, it doesnt matter if i destroy your car with a sticky bomb, tank, plane, jet, etc etc, i would get charged, no the car owner.

Before they do that they need to fix reverse shooting trolls.

What if i just want to have fun murdering? With ither people that wants murder too? Why do we have to pay for having fun?

just because the back gives protection doesn't make it a "troll" car

The Entity, Adder and Zentorno are troll symbols since trolls are usually in them. They also the ones that shoot first so I just blow them up on sight.

Someone destroying players with a tank will rack up a high psycho rating very quickly, so just stay away from the red dots on the map.

The peeps in the thread saying that you shouldn't complain when you get blown up are missing the point.

 

I wasn't complaining about getting blown up.  I was asking what the circumstances are in regards to when I have to pay versus when the other guy has to pay.  I had back to back same situations with different results.

 

I don't give a crap if people blow the car up, I just don't think I should have to pay for it if they initiated the combat.

What we're saying is you absolutely shouldn't have to pay, but you do. So either get over paying, or drive a cheaper car.

Sorry but it's what you deserve for driving the new troll mobile around in an open lobby.

As someone else said. Sultan RS. Fully tuned. No matter what way it's destroyed, $150.

Need I say more?

but there is nothing to fix there...

reverse drive is just another playing style, just like tankers, campers, etc.

what do you want R* to remove the reverse from the cars?

no, they're symbols of cars from the real world, not "trolls"

 

i never hear anyone complaining about the roosevelt and other SUVs with handlebars, despite them being commonly used to fill with 6 people, only to target one guy.

 

point is, put the gun down and observe for a few seconds first, 'cause that person you shot probably just wanted to race.

he's talking about the supercars with "bulletproof" rear-ends, which i'd be very disappointed if it were removed, as i use them as protection against people like him :\

Its funny seeing so many people driving the zentorno. The insurance should be higher.

 

The people who drive the super cars everywhere are usually the ones who can't drive.

This. If you get upset, don't keep driving Adders and Entities and Zentornos around. People get upset when their expensive cars get tank shelled again and again but never go, "Gee, maybe I don't have to show off that I have the most expensive car and just drive a cheaper one that works really well and doesn't cost a fortune if it gets wrecked." Doesn't even have to be the Sultan, even a 9F or something along those lines. Even if you don't always have to pay if your Zentorno gets hit, prepare for some $9K bills if that's what you want to drive around all the time.

 

I drive the Sultan, 9F, Voltic, Feltzer, Coquette and a few other odds and ends (Vigero, Jackal) around free roam, as I personally don't want to get a $9-12K bill every time my high-end car runs past a tank.

 

Lately I've driven the Akuma around, as well. Something like a $116 insurance bill.

 

With the Akuma ($116) and Sultan ($150, I think the Vigero is about the same), it's cheaper not to go get them back if they get impounded.

It's worth it to me to not go to the impound to pick up my Dominator, Buffalo MK2, or Tailgater because the extra $250 saves that drive across town, or god forbid the drive from paleto bay or sandy shores.

Some players are broke ass bitches and others are douchebag trolls that dump their cash on their 2nd character and can go blow PVs to sh*t and not worry about paying a dime.

Either way its pretty f*cking sad that they think they can be a badass griefer but not be badass enough to accept responsibility for it.

Pussies. Plain and simple.
