Who said you have to retaliate towards other morons? No one. If you sink to their level expect to be put punished for it. There's nothing stopping you from leaving and joining another game. At the end of the day those people will suffer the same fate as you have.
If this system wasn't in place GTAO would be unplayable due to the amount of idiots. If a game such as GTAO requires harsh rules to deter these utter waste's of blood and organs so be it!
So we should run like a b*tch? I get griefed by trolls all the time on this game so the "Bad Sport" thing doesn't work they'll still find ways to grief you. For instance I was at the barber shop and as soon as I leave the chair boom I'm shot, respawn and the dude had taken my personal vehicle but I'm a bad sport if I wanna take revenge on him and blow his sh*t up but he doesn't get a bad sport for being an asshat?
How about this last night I chase this dude that has a bounty (just playin the game) all the way to Paleto Bay and find 3ppl were chasing him and they kill me too, fine no biggie. But the sh*tty spawns have me stuck in the desert with no vehicle getting griefed and ran over by 3 players over and over with no consequences but I'm a bad sport when I pull out some sticky bombs. F* that this rating system needs fixed.
