Ah ha ha suck it, griefers

Recommended Posts

Oh yeah--awesome stuff.

 

I actually had a somewhat similar situation last night.

 

I was minding my own business up northeast near Annesburg, looting a remote abandoned house, and a player managed to sneak up on me without my noticing (learned my lesson on that one).

 

He almost had me--going for a melee kill--but thanks to adrenaline and my free Silver Double-Action Revolver, he took about three or four rounds to the chest at point blank range and lay there in his own, cold blood.

 

Was shaking a bit afterwards from the surprise attack and scuffle, but never felt better seeing him eat lead.

 

(Note to self: frequently check mini-map radar esp. when looting)

Ill say it again, PVE COOP sessions/servers, to play with eachother instead of against and do some PVP when we feel like it in PVP sessions/servers.

So everyone can have a good time, and im 100% sure this will benefit *Rockstars wallet a lot more instead of scaring away all PVE/Roleplay players.

I know many want a passive mode, and I myself am torn because I don’t want an abused passive mode á la GTA tryhards (go passive and pop out to kill you, then go back to passive).

 

 

 

Thing is, I've already seen a lot players abusing these areas as well. They will hang out at one these passive zones, right on the edge. Pop out and cap someone and then jump back in. Saw it first hand at the Post Office in Rhodes. A whole clan doing it and just sniping anyone around the town and then jumping back in the protected area. It seems like no matter what, certain players will always find a way to exploit the system. Not sure what they can do about it short of a PVE lobby though.

@Lonely-Martinhave you tried your hand at fishing yet? once you find your best spot for steelhead or sockeyes you load as many as you can into your satchel and don't have to worry about losing any of them upon death. 

 

on topic though, it's weird seeing how a lot of us have matured since GTAO launched. i use to think griefing was a normal behavior because most of the other people i saw online participated. so glad i grew out of that, and it's hard to even take pvp serious until they add actual free-aim lobbies so meh griefers gon' grief :(

I got to level 14 yesterday and got me a rod, but aren't you vulnerable to being shot or lasso'd while fishing?

 

Since you don 't have a hud visible while fishing, someone can easily sneak up and put a knife in your back while you're busy wheeling the thread and catching the fish...

I agree to this you should be passive if fishing. You cant defend yourself in any way. You should disappear when like when selling items.

Had this yesterday. I killed a Bison and loaded it up on my horse. Some dude killed me. I respawned and I saw him so I killed him. He found me and killed me. Yet again when I respawned I killed him. My camp was just over the hill. I sat and cooked while this guy sat out side my camp waiting for me to exit. I stayed in game and went to eat dinner and when I returned the guy was still waiting for me.

 

I kept emoting the wave and rude gesture to him. 

 

I left to join a PVP match. I bet that pissed him off.

 

 

Someone pulled this on me last night.

 

I just happened to be passing through my camp when this fugly fellow ran up to me brandishing something that resembled an axe. He couldn't do anything because my white flag was raised, but that didn't stop him from trying.

 

He strayed underfoot and cycled through his weapons for what felt like an unnecessary length of time. I glossed over his gamer profile and then added him to my list of blocked players as I politely endured the inconvenience of his company.

 

Camp Care Bear was situated near the railroad tracks on the western outskirts of Rhodes. At one point, my would-be griefer ran off to take pot shots at some merry travelers as they rode by on a passing train. They plugged him a few times. It was oddly unsatisfying to watch.

 

My husband called when this dude finally decided to set his sights back on me. I was on the phone for almost half an hour watching him shuffle around outside my camp with his rifle drawn. I left the game out of sympathy.

Yeah you're vulnerable when you're fishing, hunting, anytime that you're not aware of your surroundings really. That's never been my problem though, I hope they don't just give us a hot fix by adding passive mode as it was easily abused by griefers in GTAO. I hope we get an actual fix and they give us all our own lobbies. Hardcore for us free-aimers who don't like to constantly advertise their location, PVE lobbies with or without auto-aim for those folk looking to have fun with or without friends, and normal lobbies for the rest of the idiots that think it's acceptable in the current state.

Hunting at least you have a weapon in hand to defend yourself. Fishing you have nothing but a pole that takes for ever to put away. Your dead by the time your take the first section off lol.

Lol that does indeed suck, more work but I just pull up my radar or check the map for players nearby after a few fish. So many of these issues will go away if they separate the lobbies trust.

Only two for me in 6 hours (peaceful night in Dodge lol). Both pretended to be friendly....that's the only problem you just can't trust people. First one rode up on me on horseback as I was walking the street, so I was ready, then he waved so I holstered and turned around -- so the coward tries shooting me in the back and grazes me! I I did a crouch and shoot and he cried as he died ha ha. The other one came up to me waving as I sat on the chair in front of the gunsmith, so I thought he was friendly. Blew my brains on the wall. I got him back as he tried riding out of town. Their aim isn't usually as good when they're on horseback and I'm not.

Like shooting fishermen in a barrel.  😜  What a grand, glorious piece of game design.  😕

 

The damn shame of it is, the tiniest bit of gameplay testing would quickly show up these stupid imbalances and unfair exploits.  But Rockstar chooses to leave them as is.  And this isn't the kind of thing they will fix based our "beta testing." 

 

But find a money glitch?  Rockstar will be all over it, like a horde of zombies swarming over the last living brain in the county.

That's so damn lame.

 

I was on my way to Blackwater and these douchebags kept targeting me and were threatening to rape my character. It f*cking insane. I muted everyone now but it's frustrating that you're forced to switch servers constantly because of these asshats and it seems everyone is on edge now.

Scumbags like that need to be exposed and have their employers, their family, pretty much everybody see what they are like and what they say online. Makes me sick...

On the one hand, I'm against the whole 'death of privacy' thing. On the other, it is precisely the combination of total anonymity plus total impunity that makes online gaming the way it is. If there were some way that someone's onljne behaviour could have real-life consequences things would be very different.

 

Could you imagine? Get called into your boss' office one morning, "Morning Bob, shut the door and have a seat. It appears you've been spouting off racist slurs and threatening to... holy sh*t, rape people?!?.. in Game Chat. Yeah, we're gonna have to let you go".

 

Oh, what a world that would be 😂

I keep hearing about people getting lassoed but I haven't had that yet. I've only gotten shot a bunch in the head. I think i if got lassoed I would just log off and back on before they had a chance to do anything.
Whatever I can do to waste their time.

Just curious, any idea how player reporting works? 

Mainly report numbers until actions. 

- No experience in GTAO.

I got killed while cooking. Actually I was afk having a cigarette at the balcony and noticed that I got spawned elsewhere when I returned. After seeing that vid my guess is someone ran over me with a horse

 

I think that's because you were not in the cooking/crafting menu?

Cause I walked away from the game for a few mins the other night and came back to find I was surrounded much like the guy in the video but they could not do anything.

What I did was cook something but left it on my knife.

 

Or maybe it was just dumb luck, and the 3 guys were just standing there waiting on me to exit cooking?

Another way is to stand next to the Stranger characters. No one will be able to touch you!

 

Might be mistaken but i think they found a way around that by blowing up the stranger? Well that's what I heard them talking about the other night. Not sure if it's true.

Press left on the d-pad, select "Stable" and there you can change who is allowed to ride your horse and lead your horse. Just set it to "Me only". I don't even know why they added the "Everyone" option (as the default, no less). That's just absolutely pointless.

 

^^^^^^^

This and just so they don't kill my horse i simply make it flee so it is not around if they show up. It comes right back when you call it. Although if you have a pet on it and send it away I think you lose it.

I guess an alternative to sending it off would be to park your horse in the woods a distance from you.

You guys are all just describing why I am sticking with single player.  I really can't believe Rockstar made the exact same mistake as they did with GTA.  (I guess they don't see it as a mistake as long as the bucks roll in, but FFS, who thought this open world, at-will PvP thing was really a good idea... twice?)

 

Hard not to agree with this. 

...and because of this and the money thing, I doubt I'll be taking part in online anymore.

 

If the payout ratios were better I might be tempted back but as it stands hunting pays far better than missions and I'm really not interested in spending all my time hunting. Although it's not the worst thing, just not as fun as doing mission but you blow more on bullets than you make at the end of them. So I don't really see the point.

 

Anyway, getting back to hunting...

the big problem with hunting is, along comes some little sh*t who kills you and you lose all of your investment and time.

 

Edit...

Nm it will do no good leaving the rest of this post up so I took it down.

GL to everyone in online....

Also, see, R*? You see why we need PvE/Friendly lobbies?

This is why we need the orbital cannon in RDR 2 - not that anyone could afford it lol

2 things to counter Grievers

 

1. Simply leave the lobby

2. Join our crew/posse The Gun Runners XLT - we thoroughly enjoy wrecking annoying people you've all described

I'll be honest, I'd be really tempted to do it.

 

If someone came to me at work in the morning and was like "I don't want to be that guy, but I was playing RDO with *Becky from payroll last night and she was lasso griefing everyone in sight and dropping N bombs like she thinks she's a 2pac tribute act. Just check out the video of her Twitch stream"

 

I'd be really tempted to bring some real world ramifications into play.

 

*Becky doesn't exist. Well, she does, that just isn't her name. She probably does act that way, she's awful, but sadly, I have no proof. I'd f*cking love to fire her though.

The way women/female characters, and kids (including actual kids games, this being an 18 is no excuse though) is horrendous. Absolutely shocked by some of what I've hear since opening up to online gaming. Facebook games with this stuff too. Something seriously wrong with some of they think it's all jyst sh*ts and giggles. But when a game like GTA that's enabled so much make that much money, other companies follow suit and issues grow further. PSN/Microsoft should do more like making messaging/blocking measures more universally known and defaults set to private unless we opt in, my opinion anyway. :)

 

@Deadman2112. Good read, the irony of Strauss being the money man is just the icing there, lol.

 

At least I found it tragically hilarious.

Oh, I don't blame the game for the asshat players - since the dawn of the internet there have been trolls and griefers. I am disappointed that R* sees fit to force us into public lobbies, both here and in GTA, and thereby provides victims for sociopaths. I still hold out hope that we'll get private or (even better) PvE lobbies - like many here, without them my days in this game are numbered.
