Tanks not paying insurance. community is at fault

Recommended Posts

xInfamousRYANx

All the whining about tanks not paying insurance is fruitless. Its the community's fault. If you all didnt run your chradders under afk or peaceful tanks just to grief them with insurance and bad sport points they would still pay for insurance. Its nobodys fault but the asshats who did this. Now rockstar has it so that a stationary tank pays no insurance and yes its exploited but nobody is to blame but asshats

Yeah driving into tanks is a dick move, but Rockstar shouldn't have made the cannons immune to bad sport and insurance as well.

True but maybe they cant code it to separate cannon kills from ramming kills

People driving cars into the tanks is a kind of douchebaggy move but 99% of the time the twanker would have deserved.Making tanks immune to paying insurance is a thousand times worse than someone driving their car into a tank.And that is a fact.

I find it hard to believe that they can't code the cannons separately, what they probably did was just prevent tanks from paying insurance if they weren't moving, forgetting about the cannons. I would rather that there were less tanks in servers due to people not wanting to enter bad sport, than just let tanks destroy anything they want without paying insurance.

I agree with InfamousRyan,if people didn't ran their chradders into the tanks R* won't possibly buff the tank.What if a guy just want to cruise around in a tank(just cruising in peace)and some random asshat come around the corner hitting your tank and take out 12k from his wallet.Then a lot of people will complain and R* have to do what they had to do.

Can't argue with this and might I say, it is a wonderful loophole. As a peaceful tank user, I find it impossible to fight the urge to occasionally put on the handbrake and blast whichever fool is trying to roll up on me, with scant regard for the well-being of their PV.

 

I've never understood why a car explodes when it rams into a tank, yet you can ram your car into a wall and only dent it. Seems a bit stupid to me.

 

Tanks still pay if there if no one is in the vehicle.

 

Ya think so? Tell that to the players who's cars I destory at Mors for free.

 

Don't judge me, I'm bored in this game. Blame the broke ass grinding fools that only play Rooftop Rumble for causing the boredom and death of this fine game.

What he said. I'm peaceful until some fool tries some funny stuff, then I ain't very peaceful to anyone after that. :lol:

Or it's because a bunch of no talent twankers cried about becoming bad sports after going on rampages, using the only excuse that they could claim unfairness.

sorry am30. you cant blame the players for grinding rr. rockstar should have balanced the missions better. almost every mission is crap or the payout just isnt worth the effort. unless you want to run out and buy cash cards to pay your bills on time, call your mechanic or buy in game items.

 

dont know about you guys but i dont play video games for that kind of realism. it would be funny (pretty sad actually) if you got kicked out of your apartment and lost access to your cars until you paid your bills.

 

seriously stop creating topics to cry about tanks. put it in passive, change sessions, rank up and buy your own. tanks only kill me when i let them. its only fair, ive killed thousands of players in a tank, so i should let them kill me every once in awhile. i actually enjoy running around in passive while some angry twanker desperately tries to run me over while talking smack.

I can and I will.

 

I am sitting on $14 million at the moment and have yet to grind anything in this game. Live within your means and don't waste all your cash in free-roam and money just happens.

Basically if you want to be the best troll money can buy get a tank.

 

Just don't blow up anyone with a RPG or Sticky while on foot being attacked by some guy in car. Self Defense is bad.... Unless you own a tank,

Don't care about it really, everyone should have a decent amount of money. But you still do have to pay, its just players just learned how not to. If anything they need to make it where jets can blow up PV's, not so much of the insurance but the bad sport needs to be removed. Everyone drives in a PV, so did R* expect players just to fly around casually in a jet & not blow a few people up.

Cruising in a tank in peace has NEVER HAPPENED.

It happens all the time. It happens when I am in a tank. It happens when most of my friends are in a tank. And I see it probably 25% of the time with random strangers in a tank.

 

And I agree with the OP.

While I don't think the tanks should be allowed to destroy personal vehicles without paying, there is no doubt in my mind that this is the sole cause of bad sport players ramming their cars into tanks. They were no better than the tank griefers.

Yes, remember at the time you would have to pay $2k for every death? That was awful! Now it's just a few hundred I believe.

There is a fix, a wonderful marvelous fix.

If your personal vehicle is destroyed by another player, NO ONE pays the premium. Doesn't matter how they destroy it, gun fire, sticky bomb, tank. Now if you wreck your own car or it gets shot to pieces by NPC's yeah you pay the premium because its almost certainly your fault. But the whole idea of paying the insurance cost for destroying someone else's vehicle is bogus it doesn't work its a failed system.

How does that even make sense that if you're foolish with your vehicle you have to pay, but if another player is equally foolish nobody pays?

 

It's part of a check and balance system against unskilled and uncreative players who's go-to option to either kill or grief is to blow up another player's PV. Even if no one pays for the insurance, having to waste time calling to retrieve a vehicle IS an inconvenience if only a minor one, and a waste of time if it becomes a regular occurrence.

adamsowilliams

peoples main issue is with tank griefers being able to transfer all their money to their second character so that they don't have to pay, we see this as an this is an exploit, i believe that if you can share a bank account between characters, then one character should pay for the other character's crimes if they're broke.

Thats the truth alright. If they would have behaved themselfs, tankers would pay insurance and get send over to badsport.

I've always wondered: if I blow up someone's car and I dropped all my cash into a second character, and the person who's car I just blew up did the same, who pays?
