last night while having to deal with tank griefers that where in a crew i went into passive mode, but one of them ran me down in a 4 wheel drive car and parked on me and another player sniped me when i had that 4 x 4 on me and i couldn't do a thing to protect myself!! :angry:

do you agree that passive mode is still broken and needs to be fixed.

Passive mode should be passive mode, not how it is now.

 

If someone wants to enable passive mode, then they should be immune from all forms of attack, be it a car or gunfire.

Yep, its broken.

 

Best course of action would be to remove it completely

Well if you still can kill people then its not really passive mode, all it does is bring out passive mode killers who try to get free kills when someone can't defend themselves.

Yes it does not function as desired. Many many posts have been made about how to fix it or remove it or replace it.

Passive mode will always be broken until it becomes god mod (which will never happen). Its not passive if you can die.

They need to fix it so passive + BMX doesn't equal massive f*cking target

They should make the hospital bill more. Make it actually impact the person attacking the passive person. If they don't have the money, it should go into a negative balance.

I would say remove it entirely. Just needs to be fixed which I know is possible.

Also the fact that npcs can attack you while you're in passive mode and you can't defend yourself is a bit annoying....

Passive mode should just be removed entirely. People abuse it way too much. I'll see some tool using a tank to spawn kill people so I'll get my jet and destroy his tank. Once his tank is about to blow up he will get out in passive mode so he doesn't die. its really sad.

Also while in passive mode you should not be able to use any gestures, or crawl on tanks, to start with. You should not be allowed into cars either or any vehicle that will kill you when it blows up.

 

Passive mode cooldown should be 60 minutes, not 60 seconds. Also, no passive mode if fired weapon/killed someone within 5 minutes.

Yes, I drove by a guy yesterday in Passive just as I got even he started shooting, fortunately I was driving my Jester.

 

still mostly used for PVP and improving K/D by griefers.

 

Kill em all until they fix it!

I'm not like most other noobs when I see a tank, it's time to get the f***k out of dodge or I wedge myself in places where tanks can't run me down or blast me.

Yeah I don't see why it can't just be a real passive mode. I've learned to use it the way it is but it should be better.

 

Anyway, I've noticed recently many times that players appear as a solid blip on the mini map, but they're in passive mode. Anyone else have this? It seems to be happening a lot more than it used to.

passive mode has NEVER failed me. sure I've been killed while passive, but the blame falls on me.

 

going passive and taunting people will make them do anything they can to kill you.

 

tip: go passive, leave area, win.

A few things they can do

 

-Any damage somehow caused to a passive player gets reflected

-Passive player's hospital bill gets more expensive with every subsequent kill

-Killing the same passive player more than a few times in a row without killing anyone else gets you some serious bad sports points

-Water hose causes double damage and twice as fast to the firetruck driver (almost instant death) when using on a passive player

-Parking a vehicle on top of a passive player has same effect as above

-Maybe make passive players a little more athletic (run faster, climb faster, etc.)

Yup, broken. Unless you go into a shop or ledge, people who are desperate always find ways to kill you. I once had a crew on me for blowing all 4 of them up in a vehicle and got passive. It took like 15 minutes until one of them got a heli and landed on me.

 

IMO ghost mode which may or may not come can be more useful on players instead of cars. No one gets to ram you except NPC's and everyone is happy.

Passive mode should be "Ghost" mode. Players cannot run you over, shoot you, or troll you in a tank. In turn, you cannot shoot in military vehicles, and you will just be able to drive through other players. I just solved the biggest problem in 3 lines. Hire me at R*.

There's no point to complaining on here. Send an email to R* with your suggestions. Until then, vote to kick them if you feel they're griefing you, or just go find a new session. If it's a tank griefing you, I sympathize. BUt not players in regular vehicles. Since they "fixed" sniping tanks, I just leave the session. I don't even bother to go get my tank as usually the asshole in the tank will just wall glitch or if I do get them, just call in another one (tip on who they are: they have a 30:1 k/d because it's important to them).

 

I think that passive mode should be removed entirely, especially because you can still shoot while in a vehicle so the rules are conflicting. It really should just teleport you to a solo session. But since passive mode is there, my crew uses it as a signal that they're away for a moment (get a drink, bathroom, etc)

It still leaves a lot to be desired, but it is better than what we used to have.

IIRC we couldn't use it if we didn't have cash on hand

I think it's pretty cool that passive mode is "disabled" when driving a car so you can kill people that way but that's because I'm good while driving a car and shooting. For those that aren't, it's just not fair. I think passive mode should be:

-Can't be killed on foot or in a car.
-Someone runs you over while you're on foot, you turn into a ghost (like ghost-racing).
-Your car cannot be blown up by players but it can blow up from fall or hitting too many things (buildings, cars, poles...)
-NPC's (muggers, angry rednecks) cannot kill you. Cops as well but you can't turn passive mode on when you have cops on you.

Basically, a no-cop, no-kill mode. Call it "Easy Mode". I'm sure it would be popular for those that want to play with no cops and no idiots on their back. But it should be noted you cannot fire in "easy mode" and if you steal a car you don't get any stars or bounty on you, that sort of stuff. It's pretty much like the one we got but with actual uses to it. Passive Mode as it is right now is only good for when you're in a shop, nothing else. Oh, and when you spawn from a mission so you don't killed and robbed of your money.
