What to do about idiots online?

TBH the best thing for you to do at this point is to start a solo with friends or just solo. All the people farming and just plain being dicks, will not be a problem if you are running a solo session. That is usually the way I play all together. Every once in a blue moon I go to open server just to see if there is any point... NOPE.

 

You get the same missions, payouts, and rp doing the jobs/races/other activities on solo with a much less of a headache.

Ok so I'm just enjoying roaming and 2 stupid tw*ts come up to me. One steals my car so I chase him and he shoots out the window and kills me. I'm like ok fine, I'll just ignore it. Then some guy who was stood with him shoots me dead as soon as I respawn in the same spot. I forgot to put passive on so again I just ignored it. So then I respawn in the same spot and he is there waiting so I put passive on and he starts running me over in a car. I respawn in the same spot and instantly before I can bring up any menus he runs me over again and then twice after that. I lost a sh*t ton of money because of them and in the end all my hard work for that session was ruined and I just sent him a message telling him to stop and he tells me to either put passive on or join a private server. Why should I? Even if I was in a fighting mood, spawn killing with a car is a very cheap tactic. Is there anything I can do about idiots like this? Passive mode sucks and doesn't protect against idiots who are determined enough to keep harassing you. I didn't think this was the point of GTA Online or am I mistaken?

 

 

Press Start, go to a new room. Why not do a solo session?

 

 

 

Yeah this, solo session is the best way to play Rockstars multiplayer online game sadly.

I agree with every word of this. Sadly in reaction they will probably just delete solo mode, since it's a lot easier than reworking the fundamental design of multiplayer so it's not boring/pointless/frustrating etc.

1. Lock your cars for strangers, use the player menu thing, (hold select for ps3).

2. A car is not that hard to dodge, i dont believe he ran you over before you could move every time, theres no way he would know exactly where you would spawn.

3. When in pasive mode just find a ledge or so he cant drive over with a car.

4. WHen really in a pinch, change servers

5. Ask people on the server for help, if i was there would have joined you in some serious asswhoppin

To original poster if you are on PSN and want some back up to tackle idiots like this, let me and myself and crews members will come and rape them on your behalf, just set a bounty, and we'll hunt them and f*ck them over.

Haha thanks but unfortunately I'm on Xbox Live. I've only been playing 2-3 days so I'll just have to plot some revenge next time. It's just this time I was totally unprepared and I was a little naive thinking everyone would just mind their own business but then it's online and I don't need to tell you what some people online are like.

 

 

 

It's all good, I had the same sh*t first time playing, some ranked 20 fag chased me down with machines and more stamina, and my lazy ass and unarmed noob character unable to even run away.

 

Good luck !

 

You got an amazing K/D ratio of 1.01 with less than 100 kills. Good luck beating someone with 8.4 K/D ratio with 286 legit kills in freeroam. bustaaaa

1st mistake was having your vehicle set to 'Everyone'.

2nd mistake was not pulling your gun out immediately after your first death and killing whoever was in line of sights.

3rd mistake was not making an attempt to fight back and instead, trying to go into 'Passive Mode'.

I just send mercenaries & muggers after someone tries to kill me. I've gotten so used to it that I always kill them before they can kill me

Yea I never considered solo, I think I will try that out next time. And ScamPictures is exactly why I hate some of the people online. "Look at me I have an 8.4 k/d that I got by spawn killing people who weren't looking for a fight, you're just a whiny cry baby, I'll pwn yo ass, I'm so l33t". I really don't care, why do you feel the need to brag about it as if it's a hot girlfriend. IT'S A GAME! And it's people like you who spoil it for others, especially those who just game casually like myself. Anyway thanks for the tips people, I think I will probably practise on my own for a bit till I get used to it or perhaps I will get lucky and be put in a group of people actually old enough either mentally or physically to buy the game.

Someone should really start a peacekeepers squad. Maybe some of those exploiters who aren't afraid to go after other exploiters. I know that's what I try and do whenever I'm in a sorely balanced lobby. If I notice some level <24 getting bully'd I send mercs/bounties/muggers after the offender. Odd, considering I've always hated escort missions.

 

Muggers, btw, seem to leave the victim vulnerable for a spell.

I'm not crying about it. I thought the whole point of forums was to discuss a topic and I wanted to know if there was a way to avoid people like you. At least my post was constructive unlike yours. Anyway you're right I don't know why I bother coming here to talk to people like you.

Haha man, don't be such a downer.. The game is about killing, have my f*cking Skype, and I'll show you that there is a mature person behind all the slaughter and trigger-hapiness.

To OP:

 

I don't recommend trying to go into your phone menu UNTIL you've scanned your map for nearby players..

 

When you spawn, immediately press DOWN on the D-pad TWICE. This will enlarge your map for a few seconds so you have a better idea as to how close players are to you. (this has saved me more then once.)

 

Always make sure your in an area where you CANNOT be ran over when going in menus, or pulling up your phone. I prefer to stand in an alley,sit in a car, or climb to a rooftop. (UNLESS you are 100% sure that players are far enough from you where they can't get to you in time.)

 

When in doubt, just RUN until you can get into better position.

 

You COULD change your spawn point to either your apartment or hotel in the menu to prevent ANY of this from happening. OR as most players have already stated, change lobbies.

 

Hope this helps!

In IV this would warrant some serious spawn raping with a buzzard, OP. Unfortunately R made it a pain in the ass just to get a jet in free mode. So my advice to you OP is to get a jet and spawn rape.

I tend to get gunned down by the people who were just in a mission with me. Before I can send my money to the bank or anything...f*ckin pricks

Yes I don't get tha, you may have just had an awesome time with this person/people and you spawn close and think, he's safe, we were just awesome together, and then he shoots.

 

I don't understand that mentality.

I'm still coming across people who are like I was at first, they don't understand how much money is lost because they kill me.

So basically this guy wanted to take away everything I just earned for no self gain.

Why.

Stop your whining about criminal activity in criminal based game you asshole. We need passive servers and PvP friendly servers.

Yes that's what I'm saying, we need a passive server or some better system in place. I'm fully aware that the game is about crime and I'm not sure why you are resorting to insults like some 12 year old troll because you don't agree with what I'm saying or maybe it makes you feel more macho. Anyway I'm sorry if you are a 12 year old troll and I offended you, please don't tell your mum, I'll tell her tonight (haha sorry couldn't resist). Why am I an asshole? Because I don't like being spawn killed on foot by a car and losing half of my money? So if you were cruising in your newly pimped out car and someone steals it and drives it to the other side of the map and either blows it up or dumps it whilst a group of people spawn kill you in the open by exploiting passive mode losing a large chunk of your money when you nearly had enough to buy a safehouse, you would be like "Yea that's fine, it's a game about crime". That wasn't a fair fight, it was harassment by a couple of trolls and there is more to the game than mindless killing. When I want that I play COD. If I wanted a serious fight I would have joined a death match or had a gun battle with someone.

 

Haha man, don't be such a downer.. The game is about killing, have my f*cking Skype, and I'll show you that there is a mature person behind all the slaughter and trigger-hapiness.

Yea I know it's partially about killing but not everyone in freeroam wants to kill and I don't count exploiting the weaknesses of passive mode and the spawning system as a legitimate way of killing. If I have a bounty on my head and I'm not in passive mode and you are using a gun then that's different and means there is an actual fair fight and a point to killing. I wouldn't mind so much if I didn't lose a huge amount of money each time when I'm nearly at enough to buy my first safehouse. Anyway you're right I don't know you so I won't judge, just try to see it from someone elses point of view after all it's an open world sandbox game and some people prefer other activities such as racing.

People already tried that, as late as yesterday, a group of 3 players tried to kill me.. The result: 3 dead players. Conclusion: Don't approach anyone on foot, while you're in a vehicle..
