You Know Your Session is Going Badly When…

Recommended Posts

fw3

Good grief, almighty. It's Sunday morning, I woke up early and figured, "what the heck, I'll slam some GTAO time!"

I should've realized right from the start when I logged in and was stuck in that one spot on the beach that is surrounded by cliffs... you know, the one's you can't climb without faceplanting down to your death.

My motorcycle was at the top, but out of reach. I tried to scale those cliffs, but to no avail. And when I died from sliding down rocks, I respawned in the same spot.

So, I became a CEO and called for a Buzzard to hopefully airlift myself outta there. Nope. Buzzard spawned next to motorcycle.

In the end, I had to run about three miles to reach a point where I could climb the rockface, reach the road, and run to my Buzzard, on foot, down the road.

However, once I got about 12 feet from my Buzzard, I was run over, violently, by a raging NPC driver, freaking out at the sight of a helicopter.

I respawned back on the beach.

If you care to share, what are some of the instances you've had where you recognize that, indeed, the session is going badly when... ?

Seriously, today was one of those days where everything went wrong. Landing my Hydra on my Yacht ended in an explosion. Hunting the Beast ended up in me crashing my Bati and the Beast shooting me with an RPG. Or calling for a new vehicle, only to be killed while LJT calls as I'm trying to fight back and my vehicle never arrives.

Eventually, once I recognized my bad session, I just quit and ate some toast. I like toast. Cheers! :)

(TL;DR: ever have a session where everything goes wrong? what exactly goes wrong and how do you handle it?)

the moment rockstar server are unavailable right connected to the session is the moment i lost my composure

" WHAT ?! "

 

the moment i got message " files required to play gta online " in attempt to go online is the moment of self-harm

* headbutting the wall 5 times in a row *

 

the moment combined from all the above along other game-breaking errors

" FFFFUUUUUUUUUUUUU " * snap the controller in half , repeatedly smash the PS4 , knock over the TV , microwaves the game's disc , threw the game's case to the dumpster . sent a hatemail with title " FIX YOUR GODDAMN GAME " to R* *

Forgetting that you joined a friend in a race on assisted aim the previously day, and then taking far too long to realise that you're in an assisted aim session whilst attempting to use driveby....

Lmao this. I stopped engaging when I had a level 30 something (old player on new account) desperately make sure NOBODY could kill him.

 

Str8 up street marksmen ONLY.

Suicide when he sees an opponent cutting in between to houses or any weird angle...

 

Whenever these cancerous little devil spwans are plaguing our existence they ruin anyones good time...

It always starts off as a simple revenge for 3 and a half clips of marksmen bullets whizzing by me and finally killing me and alowly turns into "I GOT YOU NOW FKER..." *player has committed suicide/took the easy way out*

*NOOOOOOOOOOOOO*

Player respawns and continues his truffle shuffle in the middle of the road like a kid with ADHD focused on something shiny...

It's going bad when you see 20 other players, and 14 of them are in a ghosted organization. And 12 of them are in hydras or lazers. The rest are in passive while also in a jet! Let the good times roll. :evilgrin::p

When you're already hearing iritating obnoxious voices, while you're still only decending from the clouds. I already know I'll be switching sessions at the first opportunity.

^ this, @reform, is so painfully funny because it's so painfully true! LOL!!!

 

I swear, I hear "those" voices and I just shut my eyes, deeply sigh outward, and think, "Lord help me."

 

Then I join the first Job that pops up in the feed, no matter what it is. :)

That's when I go get a lazer and terrorize the lobby! Well.. only the red dots unless the white dots attack me. :evilgrin:

Never had a "bad" session thankfully. Even with the shuffle snipers and heli try hards/jet jack off-enders, every tactic has its weakness and makes it damn fun and funny when you take a person out of their comfort zone.

 

The spawning at beach with vehicle above you can be frustrating fun, especially with the unwinnable battle against a steep mountain climb up. (I won't concede victory to you game physics!!)

A while back, I had my spawn location on Random. I spawned outside Fort Zancudo. Due to someone stealing a jet, only to be shot down, I was then griefed by an AI Lazer along with the other guy getting killed too.. Around 10 to 15 deaths. I shut the game off.

When you spot chat messages while you're still in the clouds. I just know it's going to be one of those days. Timed out. Failed to connect. Timed out. Session full. Unavailable. Host left the session. Disconnected. Cannot connect, returning to GTAV. Timed out-

 

ALT+F4.

I'd just drive around and stalk him endlessly, completely ruining his play session til he left. If he keeps suiciding, its his wasting money and time. Not me.

When it takes almost a minute for the animation of you leaving your yacht's door to start - cue the unknown network error/session split.

Because changing sessions, for me, is like admitting defeat or that I did something wrong when I didn't... and that's when I go all Charleton Heston:

lol I agree, changing sessions is another 5 minutes of agony as well.

 

Best way to get out is use Lester's heist setup on your phone, it teleports you to your apartment no matter where you are in the map. It doesn't start the heist and you stay in your session.
