I'm not promising to reply to everyone, but I will respond to these....
There is a penalty. It's called the mental state rising. I'm not a combat oriented person, but all these people saying 'X needs a nerf' or 'Y needs to be punished' is getting ridiculous.
- mental state is a relatively soft punishment in my opinion, but I respect your statement.
If you play on Xbox, can you tell me your gamertag? I just want to know it so that if I run into you in free roam, I can know it's you that I'm killing repeatedly. Thank you in advance.
This made me smile! Unfortunately I'm on PS3, so I'm out of reach for you...
Bullet resistant window would be nice...probably have it cost 50k or so.
Breaking said defense though....no one should get penalized for killing you in your vehicle...in or out. Free-Roam is called "free roam" for a reason. It's free game out there.
I guess I have a different definition of 'Freeroam'. For me it should be a 'staging post' for the missions / races / deathmatches / heists , but I'm an idealist
If you don't play free aim. You should. You don't get killed in your vehicle anywhere near as easy
Ah, yes - but I'm in a friendly auto aim crew so I would need to convince them to go free aim, I don't think I'll have much luck selling that one
i agree on the bullet resistance windows, i have been wanting that for ages...
on the freeroam thing... i dont know, me being a freeroam griefer that thing you propose there makes no sense.
would you explain me how the system would know the difference between me killing you because you shoot me first and me killing you because thats what i do...
heck why not make it 5k penalty for scratching your car and 10k penalty if i hit a car and that car i hit scratch your car.
I see your point regarding the kill penalty, but if another player was taking potshots at you, but not often enough to kill you outright (just lowering your armour/health) it would be your decision to deal with it as you see fit. I they kill you (with a weapon) they pay, if you kill them (with a weapon), you pay. If a group of players were to attack another group, it WOULD pretty much be a lottery as to who loses the money, but the game SHOULD know who fired the fatal shot. Basically, if you don't want to pay, it's your risk to engage or go somewhere / do something else. Or run them over. Or slice them with helicopter blades. Vehicular death would be exempt from such penalties in the system I envisage. In my response to Otsd4rv4, I said: "I guess I have a different definition of 'Freeroam'. For me it should be a 'staging post' for the missions / races / deathmatches / heists , but I'm an idealist "
You state "killing's what I do" - I would recommend LTS, DM, GTA race or even Capture if you want the feeling of getting one over on someone...
About the car damage : sarcastic much?
So I can't kill my friends or others in freeroam?Yeah... No thanks
Well yeah... There are game modes specifically for that type of fun you propose.
I agree on both. Maybe not 2K every time though. Maybe have it start low and ramp up if you keep killing people. Or something else, I really don't know. Free roam will always be an insufferable cess pit regardless of anything Rockstar does though.
I chose 2K randomly - I like the idea of it rising (along with the mental state?) - a proper bounty system! For your last statement, I fear you are correct unless R* really do something major....
There should be no penalty for killing anyone with anything. If you get popped in free roam, oh well that's kind of the point of the game. We don't need any more bullet proof/resistant anything. Worst thing R* ever did was make people feel like they are entitled to live peacefully in GTA.
I understand where you're coming from, but since R* introduced money into the game world, people will act as they do with money and possessions in real life - buy / hoard / protect / destroy / cheat.... I don't think the player should be entitled to live peacefully in GTA, I just think people would be encouraged to play smarter if there were clear incentives / penalties to bear in mind. I realise it is just a game, but the omnipresence of people just mowing others down with guns in free mode detracts from the game as a whole - as I have stated before, there are multiple options for murder and mayhem in this game, but some seem to enjoy griefing in freemode more than anything else.
btw you can roll down your window by switching to unarmed then flipping the bird, I do this quite often
thanks, something I've not noticed before
