One guy, on the final heist, said "i 30." I had no idea what that meant. Someone else in the session had to explain it. "He wants 30%." Had to end that session because, from experience, if the game starts while someone is unhappy, they are definitely going to troll you. One guy demanded to be the pilot, so I made him a pilot... crashed and killed us 3 feet from the end of the mission. He tried to join again and I almost gave him pilot again. Good thing I recognized the name. That one also failed without him.

 

It's actually so bad that, assuming you wanted to troll a heist, you'd actually have to work quickly to beat everyone else to it. About 40% of the time, we don't even make it across the map to start the actual heist before someone dies.

 

There's the standard trolls, people who die every 2 minutes, and people who drop in the middle, but what have you guys encountered in heists?

There was this lvl 8 guy, who I guess was an alt account because he was decent, that I'm almost sure actually disconnected on purpose at the very end of the Casino heist, near the yellow Corona in Paleto Bay.

 

I just don't understand why people go to these lenghts just to troll someone. Thankfully I got the heist done on the following try with another person.

I've been seeing that sort of thing way too much lately - chopper pilots on Prison Break and Humane Labs trying to chop people up with rotors or just deliberately crashing once everyone is on board.

 

It's getting to the point where if I don't get assigned Demolitions/Pilot I want to just leave. 

 

Gods, I so wish that online gaming didn't breed this unbelievable toxicity. Unfortunately, about the only way to achieve that would be to have Gamertags/PSNs/Usernames consist of the player's full name and address (which would of course bring a whole other set of problems).

 

As it stands, give a human total anonymity, total impunity and total immunity from any social, moral or physical consequences from their actions and it seems we trend towards being total c*nts to each other. No wonder the aliens won't talk to us...

Hang on, give me sec, this just happened so I'm still wiping tears from my eyes...

 

Ok, so it's Humane Labs. I catch a ride with my Ground Team partner. This guy was amazing. Spectacular. Hands down, number-one-with-a-bullet the single worst driver I've seen in 7 years. Did not take a single turn successfully, and must've hit 80% of the cars we passed. 

 

We finally arrive at the Valkyrie. I thought the worst was over. I was... incorrect.

 

Don't get me wrong - things seemed fine after that; hit the drop, Heavy Vests on, breached, got the data, rebreathers on and hit the tunnel. I was feeling confident, fool that I am.

 

While swimming out, killfeed shows that someone died. I check - it was the Pilot. I sigh and wait for the failure screen, but it doesn't come. I'm somewhat confused, since how can the Pilot die without crashing the Valkyrie, right? 

 

Turns out that the way that happens is the Pilot is not in the Valkyrie. Because they've landed it, gotten out and are fighting off waves of jeeps and choppers on the ground. 

 

I've barely begun laughing as the Pilot gets vaporised a second time, then immediately quits in shame. 

 

I fall off my couch in hysterics, and I know that I have today's entry for the Heist Failure Stories thread.

 

Honestly, I'm amazed these people get their pants on in the morning without breaking their necks...

@Lance Mayhem appreciate the feedback 😁

 

You seem to think I have incredibly bad luck. My retort is no, this is simply how heisting with randoms is. The suckage is real. For example, I've taken the time to keep track of today's attempts. Buckle up, cuz here... we... go!

 

  • Pac Standard - Convoy: Host set to Easy (yes, this is a fail because I'm not wasting my time on Easy)
  • The Fleeca Job: Host cut my pay to 30%. I'm out
  • Series A - Bikers: Host did not start mission, I quit after 5 minutes of waiting
  • The Fleeca Job: Host set to Easy
  • Humane Labs - Keycodes: Lookout blows up cars while waiting for contact. Upon restart, same guy shoots a pedestrian. Host quits.
  • Series A - Bikers: I get 9 of the stealth kills. I drive a van. Rank 19 goes solo on a bike. Dies. Twice. Restart. I'm passenger this time. Rank 19 goes solo on a bike. Dies. My driver rams a roadblock, stops us dead and gets vaporised by the 600 Lost that pile on to us. Host quits.
  • Prison Break - Station: I'm on Docks team. Station team both get killed. Restart. Station team both get killed. Host quits.
  • Series A - Opening cutscene. Host selects Coke. Finale-hopper quits out. The rest of us wait. And wait. And wait... second guy quits. The host and I wait. And wait. And wait... host quits.
  • Humane Raid - Deliver EMP: Normally I would NOOOOOOOOPE the f*ck out of that one, but for the sake of this excercise I stay. Someone quits. As does the next guy. The three of us wait. And wait. And wait... someone joins. Immediately quits. We wait. And wait. And wait... someone joins. Immediately quits. Someone joins. Immediately quits. We wait. And wait. Someone joins. Immediately quits. We wait. And wait. And wait... second guy quits. The host and I wait. 3rd guy joins. We wait. And wait. And wait... 3rd guy quits. Host and I wait. And wait. And wait. And waaaaaait. Host quits.
  • The Prison Break: I'm Demolitions. Host sets a Rank 4 as Prison Guard. I get to Sandy Shores, torch the bus, Ground Team (both of them) dies within seconds of leaving their bus. Restart. I get back to the bus, but I don't even get to Sandy Shores before the Ground Team dies within seconds of leaving their bus. Host quits.
  • Prison Break - Station: I'm Station Team. I drive partway to station, pull over, call 911 and wait for the cops to arrive. My partner pulls up next to me, starts honking and trying to bump me with his car because he doesn't realise what I'm doing. Cops arrive, I shoot them, we take the car and lose the cops. One of the Dock Team dies (Normal difficulty so we have a spare life). We get to the station, grab the schedule and bail. We're pouring gas on the cop car when the other Dock Team guy dies. Restart. Someone quits.

That was in the space of a little over an hour. Cases presented in order, no omissions.

 

This is the Way of Randoms. This is why this thread is 64 pages long and has been running strong for five-and-a-half years.

Well I had the most bizarre casino heist failure today.

Did agressive approche with two randoms. We went in through the sewer, cleaned out the enemies, went to the vault and blew the door.

The second we stepped in "Pfff" the gas goes of and Lester tell us to go back the way we came. No timer, no loot, nothing.

We die and restart. Clean out the enemies, boom goes the door, Pff goes the gas.

Host wants to try a third time despite me telling him it wont work.

Third try same outcome. In the screen he hits retry a fourth time, but this time I get stuck loading and have to restart the game.

 

I think that the bug was caused by the fact that both randoms where CEOs of diffrent Orgs.

The Last Flight of the Valkyrie

 

A Tale of Tradgedie and Mishappe, Told in Four Partes

 

PART THE FIRST

 

Call me God-eater. I have been a reliable hired gun in the great state of San Andreas for many years, participating in any number of illegal activities from robbery to hijacking, even murder, both deliberate and incidental. I've seen good crews, bad crews, crews that make one proud to call them comrade and crews that make one want to beat them to death with the corpse of their own mothers. I've maintained a healthy sense of humour and developed a skin so thick as to be the envy of the noble rhinoceros. 

 

But this one... man, this one nearly broke me.

 

It started off like any other heist. I got the call and showed up at the Host's home in the narrow, twisty roads of Vinewood Hills. We were to raid the Humane Labs to steal some data. I was designated the Gunner for the mission, which I quite enjoy so long as the Pilot is in possession of functioning eyes and thumbs. 

 

We depart and I catch a ride with our Pilot. As most do, he drives as though the very demons of hell pursue him, with nary a thought to braking or the integrity of his supercar. On the second to last turn, luck turns against us as he sails over the bluff and drops the doorless, hoodless and windowless remains of his car into a small inlet on the north shore of the Alamo Sea. 

 

We clamber gasping and spluttering from the water and scale the bluff back up to the road. I figure we'll get picked up by one of our fast-approaching teammates. Alas, this is not to be, as the first one to arrive begins a determined effort to run us down, actually hitting our Host several times, both forward and reverse (I, being wise to such shenanigans, had taken cover behind a concrete barrier and out of harms way). 

 

Understandably, our Host quit.

 

PART THE SECOND

 

I was invited to try again, which I accepted. I was assigned to the Ground Team this time, and elected to drive myself to the Valkyrie. While I myself arrived in good time, the rest of the team was somewhat delayed by their numerous crashes, flips and spinouts. 

 

Eventually, all arrived and we took our positions in the chopper. I was satisfied with the good working of my minigun turret, but my teammates were less trusting and commenced exhaustive testing of their weaponry from takeoff to drop point.

 

We reach our drop altitude, parachute down and breach the facility. I take point (as is my custom since I seem to be the only competent parachutist in the state) and set about the grim task of ending the lives of the brave men who stand between us and our objective, my partner scampering along behind and doing a fine job of riddling corpses with bullets. Perhaps he had a bad experience with zombies at some point previous, as he really let those dead men have it.

 

We acquire our illicit data and make our way to the cooling tunnel that is our point of egress. As my partner swim past me (he's swimming much faster than I as he chose to forgo wearing his Heavy Armour Vest), I note with some concern that he wears no flare to light his way through the murky waters of the tunnel, suggesting that he has not equipped a rebreather. My fears are realised and I watch helplessly as he convulses and drowns before my very eyes. 

 

Unwilling to suffer such a gruesome fate a second time, he quits.

 

PART THE THIRD

 

After a couple of jovial communique between the Host and myself, I am asked back for another attempt. Once again, I will be on the Ground Team and my sprits are lifted when a true veteran of rank 419 is assigned as our Pilot.

 

A slight mishap on the part of that same Pilot puts his car into the very same inlet where our Host's car no doubt still rests from our earlier attempt. Our Pilot climbs out of the water and stands on the shore for a considerable time, possibly mourning the loss of his car which, admittedly, was very expensive and shiny.

 

After some time, our Host disembarks our aircraft and heads off to collect the Pilot, delivers him to the Valkyrie and we get underway, again with rigorous testing of the on-board weapons.

 

Upon arrival, our Pilot attempts to land directly in the Humane Labs. Despite various alarms, timers and warnings plastered all over his screen, he persists in his endeavour, resulting in mission failure and a restart.

 

I wish I could tell you that the Pilot wasn't the stupidest motherf*cker to walk the face of the Earth, that he learned from his mistake and all went well. I wish I could tell you that. But Heisting with Randoms ain't no fairy tale world and once again he ignored the warning text, the alarms, the timer and the multiple messages from the team and tried to land directly in the Labs. Once again, the mission fails.

 

Our other teammate, himself a fellow of no small experience, quits.

 

PART THE FOURTH

 

Once again, the Host requests my assistance and I agree. This is against my better judgement, but so far the failures have not been the fault of the Host and I, after all, gots bills to pay.

 

All goes as before, with the exception that this time our Gunner elects to man one of the minigun turrets. I thought it a brave choice; I myself might have chosen the 40mm explosive-round cannon on the grounds that not only is it significantly more powerful, it is also less affected by the turbulence and chaotic movement experienced by a helicopter in close combat with multiple foes. 

 

We get underway and things go quite well. The host and I parachute in, breach and collect our prize. As we are swimming through the cooling tunnel, flares blazing and rebreathers bubbling away, I note that the minimap is showing a worrisome number of red dots and helicopter icons. Nevertheless, I swim on. I am roughly three quarters of the way to the beach when the killfeed reports catastrophe: the Pilot has died, taking the Gunner with him in a no-doubt spectacular fireball.

 

We restart, and fare much better this time around. The Gunner mans the cannon, the Host and I breach and clear the facility and make the beach, data in hand. The Pilot almost lands in the water, but recovers and skids to a stop on the sand. There is a reasonable plume of grey smoke billowing from the engines of the Valkyrie, but she's airworthy and we depart.

 

Several Buzzards move in to intercept us, but I am confident that our fully-crewed attack chopper can deal with them. Alas, our Pilot does not share my optimism and elects to flee from the bogies. It even seemed as though we might outrun them; however, even if we could have, we most certainly could not outrun the approximate seven hundred and thirty four guided rockets that drilled so far up our collective rectums that I fear that four generations of my descendants will be sh*tting shrapnel.

 

Even our mighty Valkyrie could not take such punishment, and those rockets threw us down and smote our ruin upon the mountainside. 

 

EPILOGUE

 

I write this tale as I sit stranded on a peak somewhere in the San Chianski Mountains. I have no supplies or transport, and little hope of rescue since I am in an Invite-Only session. I can only hope that one day someone finds this message, written on treebark using ink made of my own blood, tears and excrement, and delivers it to my beloved Nikki, who can be found stripping at the Vanilla Unicorn Gentleman's Club, Strawberry, Los Santos. Farewell, my darling - of all the interchangeable hos in that sh*thole, you were the least tattooed.

 

 

 

 

TL;DR: F*ck you, I spent an hour writing that epic, and it's hilarious; go back and f*ckin' read it ya lazy philistine. 😎

 Farewell, my darling - of all the interchangeable hos in that sh*thole, you were the least tattooed.

Even if I had seen this first hand, I wouldn't have laughed as much as I did reading it :D
Also, a toast to Nikki, the merriest widow:

Well, today's entry will be short, much like the finale attempt.

 

Prison Break, I'm the Pilot. I get to the Velum and amuse myself making spirograph burnouts and messaging the team while I wait for the timer to hit 2:30. To the Demo: "I can handle the jet, so you can help the prison team". To the Prison Officer: "I'll pick you up just outside the prison"

 

I take off. Killfeed reports that the Demo has committed suicide. This means they blew themselves up while torching the bus. Normal difficulty, so I keep flying. Just over the Vinewood sign, killfeed reports that the Demo has died. This means the two guys guarding the Buzzard killed them.

 

Literally the first two opportunities they had to be killed.  Well, I suppose they could've been run over by the bus. But, come on, no one could be that f*cking stu-... Demo gets run over by the bus, then quits.

Buddy's girlfriend plays with us off and on, and we decided to take her through the original heists so she can get the first time bonus and buy some more fun stuff. Setups were fine, a couple oopsies on her part, nothing big.

 

Finale time, and we agree that she's going to be the prisoner (since she's awful at flying planes or helicopters), I'm demo, her boyfriend is pilot, and our other friend is PO. Smooth sailing all around...but Rashkovsky despawns and the NOOSE guards don't stop spawning in. Whatever, close it out.

 

Second try (next night), demo and PO roles are switched, and we make it all out in one try. Demo meets us at the beach, prisoner and I land just fine...pilot hits some rocks and then falls off onto the heli rotors.

 

None of us could stop laughing for a few minutes.

Jesus Horatio Christ, f*ck randoms. F*ck them with a splintery telephone pole right in their dribbling, brain-dead @sses. 

 

Prison Break, I'm Pilot. After sitting on call at 2/4 for over 15 minutes because apparently there are only 3 people on the entire planet queuing for heists, we launch. I send my customary message to Demo: "I can handle the jets so you can help the prison team".

Demo replies "Mk", which, trusting fool that I am, I take to be a typo of 'Ok'. 

 

As I let the timer run down, the Prisoner dies (note that we're already on the first restart since the Prison Guard failed first time round, presumably by alerting the cops somehow as I hadn't even made it halfway to the airport). 

 

Timer hits 2:15 and I take off. I'm just flying past Maze Bank when I see a distressingly familiar black silhouette coalesce in the distance. Yep, it's the Buzzard, merrily flying right at me. My eyes roll so hard they actually do a full 360 and look like normal eyes.

 

Then the Prison Officer dies. As we vote for restart, I note that the PO has 22 kills and the Prisoner has 3, meaning that they'd almost made it thru the prison. Even a couple of missles from Demo would have made the difference.

 

We spawn in. I message Demo: "Again, please help the prison team. They need it. I don't."

 

I head for the Velum. Demo commits suicide, presumably by blowing up the bus as it caused a restart, then quits. As in, actually took the time to drive to the bus then blow it up while he was either in it or next to it. This guy was rank 285, btw, so this wasn't a rookie thing, this was just a stupid @sshole tantrum ragequit. 

 

So, congratulations, Zz Wildcat Z, you broke me. I'm done heisting with randoms. I just can't take it anymore - the stupidity, the ignorance, the endless restarts, the bloody-minded absolute refusal to accept any advice whatsoever. I used to find it funny, but now it's like masturbating with a cheese grater - slightly amusing but mostly painful.*

 

See you guys in December. Maybe.

 

P.S. @whywontyoulisten, I understand, on a molecular level, how you got your handle.

Recounting of hilarious embarrassments: how my team and I failed Criminal Mastermind, several times, almost*.

 

* "almost" because we did the "quit the game to save challenge progress" trick. No, I'm not ashamed. I needed 10 million dollars more than I needed my pride.

 

1. On the Humane Labs finale, with heavy vests on and full health, one member of the ground team somehow gets one-shotted by a single NPC. Inexplicable, almost had to be a glitch. (On the next run, neither of us even needed one spare armor.)

 

2. On Convoy, we are being extra-cautious and driving in a PV Insurgent while one person drives the stolen truck. Instead of taking the GPS route, we backtrack to the train tracks, intending to drive on them through the mountain and around Paleto Bay. We have heard this is the safest approach. Immediately the Insurgent gets stuck on the track, on a small bridge between hills. The driver can't figure out how to move it so the gunner climbs out; instead of ending up on top of the vehicle as usual, he somehow teleports to the side of it, where there is no ground beneath his feet, and he plummets to his death.

 

3. Best one by far: on the Pac Standard finale, we decide to ditch the bikes for a standard sedan off the street. I am driving it well off Lester's route to avoid as much police attention as possible. I drive it off of a small incline at low speed, intending to land the car maybe 20 feet below and keep on going. Car lands on its nose and instantly explodes.

 

Mercifully we did complete this thing eventually!

For this reason, I make sure I am demo instead of pilot. And I make sure to tell the pilot what he has to do. Some people don't get it, regardless of their level, while I have also seen the rare low level demo who did get it.

 

edit: One more thing: if the host takes demo, quit. 99.9% of the time, they don't know what they are doing, go full tryhard on the jets and let the ground team die until exhaustion.

That is, if I'm pilot.

If they take demo and put me on the ground team, they usually pick that one pilot who wrecks the plane anyway. And then I still quit.

If the host takes Officer, that's ok as long as they are high level and put the lowest level as prisoner.

If the host takes pilot and doesn't wreck the plane, you found a good player, add them.

Got a random invite to aggressive approach. Ok, I like the aggressive approach and I'm a good hacker. Will work for free if I'm in with lowbies. Let's do it. 

 

Join, don't really check the planning board or mission options (big mistake).

 

Spawn in, realise camera is locked to first person. Ok, I like a challenge, something a bit different. 

 

Realise we aren't using the sewer entrance (why would you use any other for aggressive approach?). Ok, like I said, I like a challenge. 

 

Duggan's goons come pouring into the Casino main floor, heavily armoured and taking a full clip in the face to drop. No Duggan shipments. And we have micro SMGs. 

 

Lowbies start dying instantly. 

 

Yeah, I quit.

It's running long because the forum moderators merge every similar thread into this one.

Lol, yeah, that's the reason. 😂

I joined a stranger’s Act 1 Server Farm Setup. It didn’t go so well because of unsuccessful landing onto the rooftop.

 

The lvl 13 player in our team seemed to have insufficient experience in flying Akula. He had difficulty dealing with Akula’s twitchy handling. When the Akula touched the helipad, it’s blades collided with the surrounding and eventually we flipped over and got killed when the Akula exploded.

 

The host said nothing. I just said “sorry I have to go” and both of us voted “Continue” to abandon the mission. Can’t blame him actually, motor skills for flying takes much time to develop in this game.

This is not so much of a story but I once did the Diamond Casino Heist with a team of four and in the end we got 60k each. Definitely a failure.

You have to have a minimum of 150k in order to leave the vault and not trigger the only fail condition other than Out of Lives the Casino Finale has... as horrifying as this answer will probably be; how much did you have when you left the vault?

Had the Prison Break finale classic last week - struggled through it with a mixed level team, level 53 ish is host and pilot. Me and another guy who sounded Greek or Italian were imploring this clown to go higher.

 

He flies around too low for the final corona for over 10 minute minutes before plunging into the sea. It's always either that or die on the jump with these clowns.

 

No way I'm doing that again. We all spawn on the cliffs and use the host as thermo scope mkII sniper practice, which turns out to me much more enjoyable than the heist.
