Bad Sport and You

Plenty of times with 3 accounts... Always got empty lobbys. Then bad sports got disabled and it´s like a dream. Blowing up sh*t without punishment. :D

I've been placed in the Bad Sport category twice for a total of about three weeks. The first time was for about a week, the second time was for two.

 

In both instances, I didn't do a hell of a lot wrong. I blew up a few players, but I didn't terrorize any lobbies. I was also constantly receiving Good Sport rewards immediately prior to being dumped in Bad Sport lobbies, which is why I found it weird that I was being penalized.

 

It's certainly a sh*t show in those lobbies. I mean I can handle myself (Level 485, 2.87 K/D), but I always needed to be aware of my surroundings. Players were dirty as f*ck, and there was no gamesmanship whatsoever. You could be going about your business, they'd activate Ghost Organization, and they'd come after you. Now, I was switched on to that, so I often went underground for three minutes, and sorted them out on most occasions. But it gets tiring.

 

Normal lobbies are much more relaxed, which I like.

I put myself in there for two days once to join a friend. Didn't take much, I just repeatedly blew up a Faggio as the owner (another friend) kept getting it placed at Mors Mutual.

I don't think it's just the number of vehicles destroyed - I think frequency plays a big part in sending you there too.

Well honestly idk if youre an asshole. You very well may be.

But to assume every player that ends up dodgy is an asshole.. well thats a statement an asshole would make, and I would know because I have no issues admitting I can be a huge asshole haha

I am and I'm not? I can be a dick to players, camping, killing AFKer's, hiding in the subways when I'm doing Executive Search or have a bounty, etc. Moves generally viewed as assholish. However, I don't use wall breaches, attack other players product or go out of my way to make other players days miserable and will back off if someone actually asks me to do so.

 

Everyone is an asshole to some degree.

Hiding in the subways when I'm doing Executive Search

 

 

 

That's not asshole behavior. It's good strategy.

 

Do you think Rockstar randomly selected those spots for the fun of it? They did it because it's essentially a game of hide and seek. When you were a kid, did you ever play in an open field where the other person could spot you instantly? No, you played it in areas with a bunch of obstacles and quickly tried to hide under sh*t. That's the objective of hiding - you know, so the other person can't find you.

We played at night and I would dress in dark clothes then hide on front of dark basement windows. No cover at all and full unobstructed view of the hunters.

 

Think crouching in Skyrim only I'm real life.

As I mentioned before, I've never been to bad sport or even been labelled as "dodgy", but I also do not subscribe to the notion that being placed in bad sport renders one as an "asshole". I'd imagine that those who do enjoy free roam feel obligated to defend themselves when they're being targeted. It's beyond ridiculous how the whole thing is set up now - especially since blowing up someone else's Oppressor or other armed vehicle generates bad sport points. Seriously, that is about the most idiotic thing I have ever seen within this game. Also, you rack up points for being kicked out of a lobbies and that seems to happen quite regularly to lots of people. I would imagine that you also receive them for disconnecting during the middle of jobs as well; I do know that you get them if you voluntarily quit a job or close the application - I cannot imagine the game being able to properly distinguish the differences between you being disconnected or kicked through no fault of your own and manually pulling out your LAN cable, closing the application, or completely powering off your system.

 

Either way, bad sport is poorly implemented - especially now that constant PvP is so heavily encouraged within the free roam environment. The real assholes, in my opinion, are the ones who abuse passive mode for cheap kills or an easy escape, abuse EWO when they take any sort of damage, and those who troll jobs (killing teammates during PvE modes, driving backwards on a race track, blocking a race track, etc, etc.).

After being kicked from public sessions by crews trying to treat the session the same way trump treats the border and having groups of friends kicking me from matches or missions so they could run the timer up for more money or having no choice other than to leave a missions because one of the players blocks everyone from playing it and leaves nothing else to do but sit around and wait has finally led to me getting bad sport for 4 months today.

 

 

The funny part is i do not enjoy public lobbies because of the type of entitled groups that are on there so i do missions and matches every time i get on and only go to lobbies between on calls populating.

 

What i find funny is i told this story on another forum and literally almost every response was assuming i'm GRIEFER i even got a response saying "If you don't leave a session after a group of people told you to then bad sport was made for you"

 

 

In 2013 when this game came out i was in bad sport twice for doing what i was supposed to, fight other players. Back then most players had personal vehicles that were the same cars you could get off the street the first few months put 2 and 2 together and that adds to bad sport but both were only 2 weeks and a month. Skip almost 4 years later and because the community has changed SOOOOOOO much i'm now in bad sport for doing something that is enjoyable to avoid the entitled "mommy never said no" players.

True, its not hard to figure out they're in the subway and at that point if you can think quick for most real life situations then you can figure out how to trap them inside.

I've had a single 2 day stint in BS...in so many ways I found it equated to going to jail irl... every session is full of players who exploit the system in some way.

 

It also seemed like the message "Some Players are Off the Radar" was stuck on the screen for hours :)

I'm a ground assassin so zero, I own jets/planes but it's wayyyy more gratifying to kill you on the ground in person.

Same thing in clean lobbies. For the first time, some scumbag f*cked with my wifi, something which happened in a clean lobby and never in a bad sport lobby.

Not for me. Only about 3 or 4 different lobbies at max. There are only about a 100 BS players currently.

Ive been 3 or 4 times, I think the last time I got was a month, and I've been dangerously close the past few days wth my status changing to "dodgy player" so im just waiting until that cools off back to clean player.

 

Any idea how long it takes to go back down as a clean player?
