I see them travelling in groups of 3 even 5 tanks now. Never fighting each other but griefing players with safety in numbers. I really needed a co pilot for my buzzard today. I died like 20 times fighting groups of tanks on foot.

Complaining about tanks? So original! Ever think that maybe they were together because they were friends or in a crew?

Not exactly new, I have seen this herd mentality before.

 

Just like in nature, it's common for the weak and injured to band together, especially when travelling thru a predator rich environment.

I still do the "Sticky Situation" layout in those situations and finish it up with the "Grand Finale". 

 

I layout sticky bombs all over the street and lure them into the trap and then go off the radar and put a bunch a sticky bombs on the car and send it flying into the the tanks.

None of them were in crews, just herding together griefing innocents like usual. They left as soon as their tanks got taken out. But it took ages by myself on foot. No one else in the 5 tank lobby had RPGs or grenade launchers.

You died 20 times?  You deserve that.  once is unfortunate but any more than that is sheer stupidity.

Best counteraction to that is a group of adept fighter pilots. They'll obliterate them one by one.

So OP is a predator and they're injured and weak players? 

Pfft, the truth is that OP is too poor to buy a tank himself.

Take this to the bitch & moan topic

Now it's actually better because you can get several tanks in one go with the jet :D

So because this happened in your particular session you assume this is a new tactic for tanks across the entire gta community?

also how could you die 20 times in a row? Why not change sessions or go into passive?

I have a tank.. And three times the level of any of today's tankers. I just don't believe in griefing other players.

I don't go passive or leave either. Never, I'll die a thousand times first :).

Right? Like wtf. Who tries fighting 5 tanks in unison, on foot, by yourself? You think you Chuck Norris or something?

Smh there's not even a need to call a group of 5 tanks names like "pussies" or "losers" or whatever. The fact that they gathered together in the tanks in the first place is acknowledgement of that fact, as well as a sign of being completely comfortable with it.

off radar > steal car > drive away.

Rockford Hills is a good place to retreat to. hard for tanks to drive thru the narrow roads and still get a good shot, & there's lots of fences to hop if you're on foot.

LOL so euphoric.

 

 

OP this isn't new, I have done this with friends when we go after a crew. Often times other people take the aggressive action and they themselves become targets as well as the crew. If you run away at least from me, you won't be targeted.

You can't have heard.  The OP is the centre of the known universe.  If it happens to him it therefore happens to everyone.

Even Chuck Norris would think twice.  Why?  because he ain't a stupid twat that gets himself spawn killed by thinking he can take on a group of tanks on foot.  Chuck Norris would have used his brain and used muggers, passive mode, cops turn a blind eye and off the radar to his advantage and picked them off one at a time.  So we can conclude that the OP isn't Chuck Norris.

Two tanks have no reason to fight each other. It just cancels them out when it'd be so much better for them to team up. Pretty logical since the nerfing

^This. Shouldn't you counter something powerful with something even more powerful? One jet can take down all those tanks in 10 passes or less.

Or at least reduce their morale to the point that they're actually hiding from you instead.

Just a few corrections to make:

- Chuck Norris INVENTED spawn killing.
-chuck Norris is never on foot; he levitates
-chuck Norris doesn't call muggers; muggers call chuck Norris
-chuck Norris Doesn't even know what passive mode is
-the cops pay chuck Norris $5000 so that he can turn a blind eye on THEM
-Chuck Norris IS the radar
-Chuck Norris doesn't pick anything off one at time. He calls Pegasus to remove the tanks. And it doesn't even cost him $200, they do it cause he says so.

Cleaned that up for ya. Don't mind me.

I was trying to make it relevant to the OP as he is not anywhere close to being the standard of Chuck Norris.

(want and need are very different)

 

I have between free roam and deathmatches nearly 25,000 players killed...ranked somewhere in the top 200 in the world.
Of those 25,000 kills I have exactly 858 Rhino Tank kiills.All of them were in other tanks,and if i was in a particularly irksome mood id kill them again once they were outta the tank.

In real life im nearly 50,I have Multiple Sclerosis,so my hands dont always do what I want them to,and im legally blind....If I can get over 24k kills with guns then all the rest of you can too.

Tank griefers are pussies.
