Hey all,

 

I don't know if this has been discussed anywhere, but what actually happens when someone kills you and steals your IE Cargo and you switch session before they can deliver it? Or what happens during Hostile Takeover if someone grabs the bag and you exit session immediately?

 

I know this has happened to me, or at least the "VIP Work over - CEO quit the session"-message (or something along those lines), and as I remember it I may have gotten like 1-2k instead of the 16-17k from Hostile Takeover? And the IE car stops and starts burning, right?

 

So if you really want your attacker to not gain too much from attacking you, the solution could be to just Find new session immediately? 

 

Not proposing anything really, just throwing it out there.

I agree, but this isn't about me. I just want to know the numbers if anyone's got em, because to me it seems that people would do this more often if it means that the aggressor doesn't really make any cash from the theft.

 

I don't know. It just struck me the other day that it's possible. Of course I don't see it as practical to jump session each time someone comes to rob me. But a lot of players seem so mad with this game's encouraging of PvP and players stealing each other's stuff, I figured this would be used by pretty much everyone. It's like that Blonded radio talk "If I can't have it, no one can. Now you're blind, dummy."

CEO jobs like Hostile Takeover, etc immediately end if the hosting CEO of the job leaves the session, with no $ to anyone.

 

As for I/E, no idea.

I had somebody do it to me the other day actually, I was about to blow up their prison bus while they were running Jailbreak, they left the session before I could and I got nothing. Maybe closing the application gives different results since the game has no way of knowing this is happening, whereas if you just find a new session it might be able to give you that small $1-2k consolation prize?

The solution could be - getting better at VIP work and completing it faster than anyone would even get an idea of attacking you.

For example, Hostile Takeover can be completed under 2 minutes.

 

In my opinion being fast is the best defence. The general casual player is tooooo daaamn sloooow to do anything to you if you get used to complete the job at the speed of light.

 

As for I/E just call the CEO buzzard and blow up the car so they can't store it. But speed can also prevent.

True, most of the time being fast is the best defence. Quitting a session can’t be considered ”defensive” at all, but; if someone has gone through the effort of going ghost org or off the radar, and follow me across the whole map to steal my cargo (which some, to my surprise, feel is a good way to spend the time), and then deny them the joy of acquiring said cargo for themselves... Wouldn’t that make most tryhards wanna throw their controllers out the window?

I’m NOT saying this should be used as a strategy, and I KNOW that if you’re fast, good at the game, use a chopper yadayadayada, none of this is really a problem. But that’s not the point.

Thanks for the bit of info so far though, everyone.

You can still deliver Vehicle Cargo, Crates and Heist Prep Equipment when the rival player has left.

Most players don't try properly to get it back. A lot of them leave quickly.
Or they chase me but get killed by my mines or stickies, if they get too close.

I have had fails, though.
One time I got killed by a driveby. I blew him up a split second later but I respawned far away and he spawned nearby the car.

I think most players don't know that leaving isn't the way to stop me from delivering it.

Vehicle cargo sometimes survives... sometimes not.

 

You have a timer to deliver air frieght too after they leave, two minutes. So basically depending where you are, you'll need  to summon an Buzzard to get there on time

2 minutes if their time ran out after you took it from them.

Hostile Takeover - Altruist Camp is probably the easiest job to complete, that part of the map is often low populated. Zancudo variation is beyond stupid, while Merryweather one is too long, peoples in the session will figure out you're doing something there. 

LSIA variation is balanced, not hard to grab the case, but you may have to fly over the most populated areas of the map.

 

 

-Vehicle Cargo should stay even if the CEO leaves, several times, due to session splits, I'd to deliver the car to scrapyard instead to the drop off(because of the session split...).

OP the events in Freemode are for competitive purposes only. You can't participate if you're not anticipating taking a loss it is never anything personal just how GTA Online works. Once you become a target there are 29 other players who may or may not give a f*ck on interfering with what you are doing, this is the risk and opportunity that comes with while working in Freemode.

 

If you want absolute guarantee victories? You are also able to launch contact missions from Simeon, Lester, etc...  which are pretty much the same as doing VIP/CEO/MC work because they are the exact same missions, but can be launched and done privately.

If you know that someones attempting to steal your car. What happens if you purposefully damage the car so much like above $20k? Does the thief pay for the repair? 🤣😂

Quitting a session solely to avoid losing is a bit weak imo.

There are times it makes sense though.
