AFK PSA

If you join random missions with no intention of helping at all, you are an asshole.

 

Let me qualify this by saying that I am fine if we have done a mission together where you helped and now you need to take a sh*t, or scarf down dinner and you need to afk for a mission. I would even be fine with a friend asking me if they can afk on some missions while they do homework.

 

It is unacceptable though when I am host and I don't know you, for you to not help right off the bat. I can accept you being idle for a minute or two, we all know being on call is hit and miss and maybe you were starting laundry while you waited, who knows. But I am so sick of starting a missionand two scrubs just stand there expecting their GTA welfare check to come through.

 

You eat up any extra life we have by getting killed once enemies appear to give chase, if we should die we have to sit there watching you hoping you will wake the f*ck up and finish the mission.

 

I will continue to get the mission almost complete then kick you useless twats out of the session. Again, if you have been helping and need to sit one out im cool with that, but dont join my mission and expect me to just sit there.

 

You afk'ers might not know this since you don't bother playing, but there are SOOOOOO many of you out there and it gets really annoying.

 

Rant over.

When u kill them they still collect money and xp. Kick them and give them the gift of loading screens and empty pockets.

Complete some missions with them and then when you're tired of doing them go to free mode and when you get into the same lobby together call a mugger after them repeatedly and take all their afk money.

most of us do

 

i tend to get crafty when someone annoys the sh*t out of me

 

i'll never forget the time i had a bunch of afk guys in one mission and i was lucky enough to be the first one to spawn with my insurgent less than 200 ft away. stuck a stickybomb on it, drove back to where i spawned, waited for them and blew them all the f*ck up when they arrived

I find what bothers people most and hit them there. Being an obnoxious twat but don't like people doing better than you or getting in your way? Prepare yourself for getting cock blocked repeatedly. Basically just fun to push their buttons.

I had two guys afk in los santos connection, just them and myself. They of course died after I got in the granger and enemies spawned. I did everything, then instead of flying to madrazzos I parachuted, called in my car and dicked around for a good 15 minutes till one of them left. Then of course I drove off a cliff and landed on the roof, blowing myself up and failing the mission. I was sad because I really wanted to get that other dick to back out.

I had someone ram me repeatedly on rooftop rumble while going to madrazo's. I had the docs so I just didn't turn them in. They were sitting in the turn in spot and I stickied a car, drove it toward them, bailed, detonated it, and laughed as the burning husk went flying into them killing them. Then I didn't turn it in for a half hour.

..when you get into the same lobby together..

Yeah, good luck with that. I still have trouble exiting into a same session with friends, much less randoms.

 

OP, the solution is simple. Exit to free roam, then host another lobby. I honestly don't encounter that many AFK'ers. Not nearly as many as the repeatedly run teammates over and/or blow up their car trolls, anyway.

If I wanted to solo missions I would do exactly that. I didn't bother inviting people so I can get a couple extra dollars, I did it so I can engage in team work and get things done quicker.

Team work ... Thanks for the Laugh. Teamwork is Like a Rarity at Least for me to see Nowadays. It seems Like every time I Join a Random Mission, Every one races to the Objective and either Blows it up, dies or if You try to collect Objective, Others will try to kill/Kick You. Like WTF ?? . This is why I Gave up Playing with Randoms a lot and host My Own or Join Friends anymore. Btw Sorry I wasn't trying to be Rude, We all have our Own Play Styles, That's what makes us Unique.

Got me millions while doing some browsing. :lol:

 

I'll just jump in my car, drive for 10 sec so you get the impression I'm participating and then collect your hard earned money.

It's worse when people do it in Heists where everyone gets a wanted level. We were doing the Series A setup where you need to take cocaine from the Yacht. Missing the 4th person while we were doing it didn't hurt us but, at the end you have a wanted level you need to get rid off, and the AFK'er got shot...

You still get the maximum payout if you let the mission run for 12 minutes (or however long it takes to max' the payout). The difference in RP between solo and with friends/crew is minimal.
