And why did you do it?


I thought I'd make this topic after commending a friendly player earlier, and realising there's too much "b*tch*ng and moaning" going on lately :)


I was running from the cops in my car and accidentally killed a guy on his motorcycle as he came down the hill and I was going up. I apologized in a message and he said no worries. Normally I would expect someone to either chase me and kill me, spam me with cussing or both, but it was a pleasant surprise so I commended him for being friendly


What's your story? :)

Just a few nights ago actually.


Was robbing a store and someone came by in a buzzard, and of course my first thought is "please don't god damnit". He sent me a text asking if I needed a ride, hopped in, gave him some cash and then separated. Later that session, I was dealing with a tool the other night (someone with swag in their PSN ID would be a dick? shocking right?) He came by numerous times in a cargobob, dropping cars for me to escape in, which didn't necessarily work cause the asshole was driving a Zentorno and doing the bitch reverse tactic. The guy came back in the cargobob, picked me up and flew me away from the asshole, who later got in a tank and got pissed cause he couldn't kill us.

I use the Commend-function when someone goes out of the way to help me. For instance I was dogfighting this guy in a Lazer and while I'm no noob at it he owned me quickly. He then contacted me and gave me some advice on how to improve my Lazer skills, I even sat down in front of the tv in my apartment watching him showing some moves.

I don't think I ever have, honestly, always forget that the option to commend other players is there. Someone must have commended me in the past, though, as I started getting a very small discount (probably about 5%) on body armor, grenades/sticky bombs/tear gas, etc. starting a few months ago.

Not that much to be honest with you. You get a 5% discount in all shops when you recieve +90% good reviews from peers the game says. I think it also contributes to the "Good behaviour reward" but I'm not sure on that.

Someone else will know what it does for sure :)

Never used the commend feature and don't think I have been commended by anyone either.  From the sounds of it, I'm not missing out on much.

Just from when I was in bad sport, with the hope that they would commend me in return.

But there are times that I should have, like I was running from the cops and a cargobob swoops down, lands, and takes me away. Should've given him a Commend. Will try to do it more in the future.

I am apart of a crew, so I am constantly Commending crew members for being Helpful. It keeps us out of Bad Sports Lobby and negates almost any bullsh*t Report someone does to us. It is an essential tool of our crew since we raid in open lobbies very often.

I commended a guy on being able to kill me the other night. He timed his roll/aim/fire just right. He went on to grief me for awhile longer. GTA players are 99% assholes, from my experience.

About 24 hours ago.  


My bro and I were playing and the game put us with a third guy that was one of the best team mates I've ever rolled with.  In fact, better than some people that were actually in my Crew back in the day.  lol  Suddenly his mic starts and he was like, "I never talk because of the squeekers."  


When the mission was over and everyone could hear everyone again he got silent.  I waited and made sure he was commended on helpful.

I use it when I join a mission and the players actually seem to want to work together. If we are on a roll (multiple missions) I will definitely use it.

I also commend crews (hosts) who do not kick me from missions and allow me to play along for long runs. If people are cool on the mic and seem to be in it to have fun rather than be dicks, I use the feature. There needs to be a lot more of it, IMHO.
