It's ewo to you because the simplest answer, which is the stark truth, is one that you just cannot accept. You are looking for something else, anything, to validate your perceived status as a victim against some sort of persecution in a video game, and becoming frustrated because the answer you want isn't forthcoming.

I'm not trying to validate anything. I don't know how many times I gotta type this, but I don't play in public sessions, I don't run businesses, and I only play in pve environments. Jesus Christ, there is literally no reason to not explain why a person wants to grief, and you're playing devils advocate for people that cant even explain themselves.

The game told me to destroy cargo. So I did what the game told me to do and destroy cargo griefers, getting that 200 rp reward for each kill. Cargo griefers are risking there precious K/D in this risk/reward environment.

Good post and thread OP.

Griefing can come in many forms from heist/mission wreakers/leavers, spawn killers no skill vehicle mayhem etc etc etc there are a million ways to grief in GTA. And on PC you also have the Mod menu issues.

I personaly only attack people If im being attacked. Im cautious in freemode if I feel im being followed/stalked I will take cover and prepare but not fire a shot till one is fired towards me.

Sometimes this pays off, the other week I was selling nightclub stock and a oppressor 2 seemed to be tailing me I was on the highway that runs east to west through the centre of the city.

I was close to the overpass where you can enter the tunnels and underground so drove the delivery vehicle in the tunnel entrance to protect it and took position on foot under the bridge to discourage the buzzing bike. I had him in my sights but was not going to shoot till I knew he definatly was aggresive,  He was hanging about but not shooting, it was almost a stalemate position.

After 30 seconds or so he messages in game chat that he was "here to help!" I decided to take the risk and continue the delivery.

And to my suprise he was on the level taking out the AI resitance I encountered and giving me air support.

Im going to be griefing extra hard now.

 

Every time someone tries to sell something in any lobby, i'm going to make it my personal mission to destroy it for that $2000 and little bit of RP. And all those people who lost their cargo, will have you to blame!

If they message me, I will make sure to tell them your PSN and the reason for what happened was entirely down to you

Anyway back on topic, unlike posts from someone else here, this has now been an ongoing discussion for over 3 years now, clearly something is wrong with game design if these topics keep getting made so often, what is this like the 5th one? Im starting to lose track

Depend how you're using it. If you want to be left alone freeroam while you drive you cars get a hair cut etc etc then is no problem. Problem persist when people passive pop or uses it as a coward tactic after getting a few kills on you.

I always thought that if you want to go passive or play in passive, then there should be separate passive lobbies for people who dont engage in that stuff.

Oh yeah definitely. Friendly lobbies like on GTA 4 is always welcome. But GTA 4 didn't had shark cards sales so a friendly lobby on GTA online is out the question.

Exactly. Pretty much every problem in GTAO can be traced back to Take-two's greed lol.

Most of it. But also let's not forget that partaking in such activities like griefing cargo is totally optional. The game encourage sanctioned griefing and I'm guessing it isn't really wrong since people are still playing within the rules of the game. But at the end is the player decision to engage or not engage into blowing some poor bastard product or cargo up.

You find it funny that you tried to goad me into a deathmatch only to add a random stranger, the proceed to boast about how you'll end up destroying everything and that its somehow my fault? Yeah that is pretty funny.

Deathmatch? No I wanted to add you to destroy your cargo and watch you cry but i guess thats not to be :(

What can I say?  I tried to sit back and then threats, arguments and rotten behavior overtakes the thread.

I've got no choice now.  Time to end this 'discussion,' it's clearly run it's course.
