Free Mode is not Deathmatch!

How annoying. I get sick of deathmatching and want to just chill with people online. You know, fly around in helicopters and jump off buildings with people... do funny things...

 

But NO... everybody wants to blow sh*t up and kill each other, even in FREE mode?

 

I think alot of people are missing the keyword here, "FREE". Meaning we should be able to do whatever we feel like doing for leisure, at our own pace.

 

GRR!

agreed, freemode should be about socialising making allies with ppl. I got no problem with creating gangs and killing ppl, but it shouldn't be an all out deathmatch.

Exactly though, people can do whatever they like. I agree though I hate it when constant killing happens. It gets very boring.

Folks, this is a LOT easier to accomplish if you have a headset. I've found a lot of chill people in freemode and, wow, they had headsets! Just saying, without it I have no clue what your intentions are so if you come up on me, you're getting shot. I also hate getting stuck in a car/heli with somebody who can't drive so having a headset you can just say "okay, let me drive".

 

Headset, put it on the to do list. Remember boys and girls, your bluetooth devices serve as headsets on your PS3's.

Well I always kill everybody in free mode because I want to and I have the freedom to do whatever I want.

 

In co-op I always kill the people on my team and start arguments with my team member at a crucial moment in the mode. Then I just end up shooting them. It's funny as f*ck.

Hey, to each their own and I've certainly done this in a fair amount of freemode matches. We all have a little bit of troll in us, some are just more open about it devil.gif

If your teammembers are a bit smart, they won't be so easy to kill though.

So you want to be FREE to do whatever you like in LC, but don't want to allow anyone else to be FREE and do whatever they like in LC, like kill players?

 

Bit hypocritical.

True, but he meant free of getting shot at by every person in sight.

Might be hypocritical, but who isn't nowadays? That doesn't really mean anything.

I understand where he's coming from as I enjoy a leisurely stroll through LC like any other player without getting shot every two seconds.

 

Yes, it is frustrating when players just constantly kill you, but there is no point in whining about it, as it is their right to kill people and be as idiotic as they like, given the fact that it is Free Roam.

 

If some people do not like that, then they should either play a Private Match themselves or with friends (max invite slots), attempt to kick the player via a vote, or get out of the server.

 

You can't take away someones right to be a dickhead in game, just because you don't approve of what they have decided to do with their Free Roam time.

If you get off on that then your extremely stupid. If you wanna play multiplayer at least play f*cking fairly.

 

 

 

ON-TOPIC. I hate aswell when people just constantly kill you i've gone overr this in other posts which there is alot of them. I mean earlier i was on free roam and i found an Infernus and i was driving around minding my own buisness and this f*ck starts following me shooting at the car and then it f*cking catches fire then im forced to abandon it. Then i hae to search for hours for another one. But yeh seriously all you ppl who "enjoy" killing other players for no reason especially in co-op modes grow the f*ck up!.

There is a good way to avoid this. Fortunately, the idiotic people who think free mode is deathmath are the same people that have no idea what strategy or skills are. The second they spawn they just start shooting at the closest person nearby.

 

Just yesterday this pink guy kept killing me in free mode for no reason whatsoever. So when I respawned I ran away and found a car as fast as I could. Then I loaded up on health, armor, and weapons. I drive over to his location, get shot at twice, then blow his head off with an AK-47. He respawns nearby, charges me with the pistol, and I shoot him full of lead again. This happens 3 or 4 more times. When my armor gets a little low, I just drive off, find more armor, then come back and kill him.

 

Another good way to solve this problem is to turn friendly fire off. If you do, nobody in free mode will be able to die from other players. They can only die from cops, falling, etc. This will usually force the deathmatchers to cooperate with you. Now this is not always the case, I have had a few instances where one guy follows me around and keeps trying to kill me while the bullets go right through me.

You're right, but I was only making the point that he meant a different kind of 'free'.

As for that 'freedom', it would be nice if Rockstar added some tweaks as suggested in another thread, that would be a great alternative to just playing private games all the time.

Every Freed mode I've ever joined has been a "killathon", bar one.

 

I apologise to those pair, who's game I interrupted. After we all worked out what we were doing, it was a blast going on a rampage through Algonquin, with the cops chasing us in the PMP-mobiles..

 

If, on the off chance, you happen to be reading, sorry for leaving. I lost my connection.

Well, I just started my own Free Mode to dick around in and a few others joined not long after. Now, because of the problem with idiots killing you all the time, FF was understandably turned off.

 

So, I'm cruising around Alderney in my Faggio, doing wheelies up and down the street when suddenly, the first player to join, comes over and starts emptying clips into me.

I sat there on my bike laughing as he couldn't kill me....does he click on that FF is off?

Probably not...as he then runs off, gets an M4 then comes back and proceeds to put more rounds of ammo in me.

 

Due to his angry nature and emptying clips everywhere, the cops turn up and put one his head while his attentions on me. Game Over.

 

He respawns, quite clearly annoyed, then promptly leaves the game.

 

Brilliant.

 

On another note, 2 other people who joined ran around the entire time trying to kill me with FF off. Think this goes to show that these people truly are idiots.

Yea, people who try to kill each other when FF is off make me laugh. I remember playing a game when someone was constantly trying to kill me, even though FF was off. Eventually though, he damaged my vehicle enough to force me out of it. It's things such as this that get on my nerves so much.

 

I also hate when everyone thinks it's cool to pistol each other at spawn. How wonderful and exciting is it to spawn, shoot some people with a pistol, die, spawn, shoot some more, die, and so on...

Well, free means doing whatever, and some people want to kill in their free roam. I find it annoying as hell, because I hate it when people just kill each other.

 

Ways to prevent that is making a party match or game invite only and invite friends, put friendly fire off, or kick anyone who starts killing.

If FF is off and another player damages your vehicle to the point where its on fire you do not have to exit the vehicle. When it blows up you will still remain inside unscathed. Did this several times this afternoon, they shot it to sh*t then when it blew I just got out and walked off to another vehicle.

 

Take care though, if the vehicle is blown up by a cop then you will die when it explodes. You will also die if you exit the vehicle and then it explodes.

 

 

Although I'm sure that if it were a Helicopter then you would die upon hitting the ground...

Check out this thread and get in on the action. Controlled environment, no FF and everyone works together to wreak some havoc.

Indeed, the keyword for co-op being f*cking cooperation. If you want to do sh*t like that then I suggest you play daethmatch where you can just kill everyone. I think the only reason people do this is because they f*cking suck at DM and have to find a way to get kills.

 

Me and a guy responded about three inches from each other, we were literally rubbing shoulders, the guy turns and starts trying to kill me with his pistol, I can't run away because he'll get me, I could kill him but that won't help, I can never get him kicked because nobody ever votes, and I spawn two feet from the person that killed me every time.

 

yes it is called free mode and you are free to do whatever you want, but you have to understand that we want to do what we want also, which means not getting killed by lame asses who will waste their entire supply of rockets on a person when FF is obviously off.

Sure, its okay to kill each other every now and then. I admit I like tricking people into coming onto rooftops via helicopter and pushing them off the edge.

 

But its when people are just constantly on a hunt to kill. Free mode is Free mode, it shouldn't be an all-out deathmatch tournament. There aren't even any kill scores or ranking so there is no point in it but taunting and annoying people thus ruining the experience.

 

I liked when Sam Houser said that it was really cool the idea that we could just exist inside this virtual world and hang out with our friends. Thats what Free Mode should be more about. Killing is okay on occasion though if it isn't consistent, sometimes is just fun to kill each other to watch the way the bodies fall to euphoria etc. But I would only kill somebody if they seem agreeable to it or bored and want to muck around with suicide jumping.

Bravo. This seems to be the story of my life, as far as "Free Mode" is concerned. An individual will join the game ("friendly fire" off, of course) and proceed to hunt down the nearest player and make their life a living hell, full of unmitigated gunfire and fisticuffs. I've witnessed fellow players hide in the thick foliage of Middle Park for what would seem an enternity hoping to come across an unfortunate soul foolish enough to venture along their path, but this seems to backfire, namely due to these potential "griefers" being unable to obscure their identifiers efficiently.

 

When all else fails, many of these individuals either leave the game -- when it suddenly dawns upon them that explosives aren't at their disposal and a that bullets are causing little to no damage at all -- or find the nearest vehicle and attempt to run you down. When that falls flat, they too vanish as quickly as they appeared. I've taken to not only turning explosives and "friendly fire" off, but also disallowing identifiers and spreading out spawn distances; while many choose not to stick around for very long (as it can be a daunting task seeking out fellow players when you haven't the foggiest idea as to their location), I've found this is a useful tactic in weeding out those who enjoy making others' on-line experience a living hell and those who are up for some co-operative hellraising.

Its a good laugh blowing each other up with rockets and grenades when FF is off but only if the 2 people agree to it. I love teaming up with peeps and doing stupid sh*t but i also love blowing each other up to see were we land because that counts as stupid sh*t lol.

This topic is fu**ing lame. It's free-mode, therefore you are free to do what you want. In my case, that freedom entails finding you whinging little bitches and killing you all in free roam mode!
