Why do high rank players hate low rank players?

Recommended Posts

Johnny Forelli

I've noticed when playing GTAO that a lot of high rank players fly around on their oppressors firing grenade launchers at players who are only a 2 digit rank. What's their deal? 

 

My little cousin who just turned 18 got gifted a PS4 Pro for his birthday along with PS Plus and GTA V and as soon as he joined online, every second a message popped up saying "XXXXX destroyed you" or "XXXXXXX flattened you". 

 

At one point when his character was already dead, the other player got into the car run over his body over and over. Another time the player threw an explosive and did an "air thrusting" taunt over his dead body.

 

The player had killed the character over 70 something times (74 I think, not sure) and even when my cousin stop playing the game and the character wasn't moving, the player was still at it killing the character so I then I sent him a message from my account saying "Wow, you must be gifted downstairs" and the player replied "I AM GOD".

 

What is their deal? Really, what is the deal with high rank players? I'm at rank 784 and even I don't blow people up or harass them, I just play the actual game and the only time I use an oppressor is when I need to get to places quicker. It doesn't bother me when I see players who are ranks like 83 or 29, they're just players like me, nothing less and nothing more.

 

I come on GTAO just to chill out and have fun after a stressful day at work.

 

Similar s**t happened when I used to play the multiplayer mode on GTA IV.

 

Can anyone recommend any peaceful lobbies or crews that my little cousin can join? He just wants to have fun and play the game and not have any drama.

Probably 3/4 of Online community are little kids with sh*t ton of time to play. And they don't share our view of chilling in an online game.

Welcome to GTA Online. You probably met some assholes called K/D farmers. They only care about K/D, griefing, and go for cheap easy kills on defenceless players. They are usually trash at everything else, including fighting back when you decide to defend yourself . Do not waste your time playing in a lobby with those people.

Sadly, GTA Online is not an adult game anymore, it has become a kids game. Especially the latest DLCs have been designed to appeal to kids, and the average player you run into is a 13 year old boy killing and hurling insults at everyone. They are usually as smart dumb as their characters look too. If you are looking for a game to play to relax after a day working, this game may not be it. Especially public freemode. Stay in invite-only lobbies with your friends, run some heists, contact missions and VIP work to get him started.

AirWolf put it nicely, they are more than likely just killing the weaker players to raise their K/D with no challenge. I'm a pretty high level and usually try to invite lower levels to CEO missions to help them get money and rank but lately we've been playing in solo public lobbies to avoid all the idiots from screwing with our sales and setups with the double money going on. And there is a difference in the "high level" players, some are true rank and some are fake rank. The people you are asking about, they are fake rank. You'll know true rank when you find it, there are some good players out there that can send these K/D warriors back to home screen.

They do because they can, low level does not mean low skill. I usually play on Xbox360 but had the Xbox One from a friend over last weekend. With the right players it was actually quite fun, to me it seems on next gen people are less prone to kill you for no reason than on 360. Some of them might be hackers too, on 360 my character was level 5000 all of a sudden, a lot of strange things happen on 360, I think most ultra high level players are some kind of hackers.

 

Other than that, your cousin could stay in passive mode and do races and missions. Missions earn you a lot of money and races require skill not level.

Well there really is not that much to it.

 

Outside:

Inside:

And they usally are not really high levels but people with modded accounts.

Aka inflated rank, multiple billions of cash and the only vehicle they own is the mk2.

 

The only lowlevels I as a highlevel (760) hate are the people who think Im a scriptkid and spam me with messages to give them cash.

I still don't understand the need to kill innocent kids who don't even really understand how this games works. 

 

I mean yeah sure, we all have our moments. Every now and then I love mowing down cattle for no reason. But what's the point? They can't even really fight back. It just isn't fun. Anyone who learned combat and uses it in that fashion, they just don't really understand this. I mean, your KD can only go so far before someone realizes it isn't a real KD.

Its mostly tryhards and griefers who pick on low ranks because they suck ass at the game and cannot pick on someone that have a similar rank to them, their minuscule braincells tell them to attack vulnerable players and players who aren't competent enough to defend themselves due to their low rank.

In most common cases I would fortify any low level player who is getting bullied, griefed or harassed by a high level player, as peculiar as it sounds it makes me feel heroic!

I would advise you to notify your cousin to possibly try to join a empty public lobby or a invite only lobby.

also this is how tryhards look like so tell your cousin to beware of them:

There's a section in this forum for  Crews. Some of them are specialized (racing, grinding, roleplay) and lots of them are kid/beginner friendly, take a look there. 

Also every platform have a trick to launch a solo sesion, in case your cousin wants total privacy.

Even if a low level has skill, the game still puts them at a disadvantage by giving them less health/ability to tank damage. This could still be a liability in heists and other co-op activities, especially given how cheap AI enemies are meaning that every sliver of health counts.

 

That being said, I'd rather have a competent low level on my team than an incompetent high level.

Best thing for your cousin to do, start an invite only session and just play solo or invite friends into the session.

I think they are fake high level, I've see quite a few level 400 - 800 players joined game as per their profile in May - July 2020.  There are still good peaceful sessions in the game, I guess you should switch sessions a couple of times to find a good session.

This. This exactly.

 

Public freeroam is a cesspit. Always has been. Ridiculous vehicles like the Skillbike Mk II just made it worse. R* wants it this way, as their mantra is "get players addicted, then frustrate them into paying for shark cards", and they know that protracted freeroam battles are the biggest drivers of that goal. They've tapped into those sweet, sweet kiddie dollars and seen their profits soar into the stratosphere; they will never change it and it will only get worse. 

 

R* doesn't want our love - just our money. Keep this in mind at all times.

Your cousin is on PS4, consider that an enormous blessing that he doesn't have modders screwing with him.

 

Switch sessions, not every lobby has serial killers

You're level 780, and you've barely noticed gta is an asshole simulator? Tell your cousin to do what you do, since that's probably why he decided to play in the first place.

When you say “high rank” I assume you mean the players ranked 100 - 300, because in my experience, this majority demographic are the worst.

 

The legit high ranks, those 1000+ like me, won’t go after new players in double digits. I mean, the odd second character player aside, there’s no sport in dishing it out to them. It’s like shooting fish in a barrel.

Dopamine addiction to winning. Thats why.

 

They get a high with each kill and its easier to achieve that with low levels who don't have high health or access to good weapons, ammo or armor.

 

R* is a drug dealer, only the drug is in our brain and this game has been tweaked just right to get us all addicted. Tryhards are the "violent crackheads" of this reality.

 

Stay in invite only sessions with friends. Recreational use is fine but keep an eye out for signs of addiction before you start snorting MKII rails.

Your friend just ran into some douchebag player, doesnt mean all high level players act like douchebags to low levels, i mean you're a high level yourself and you dont act like an ass towards lowly scrubs, so why even make this thread, you already know that what you claim isnt true? some players just hate all other players, thats not related to level.

Most high levels ignore anybody thats level 120 or below, as we all know that they are still unlocking weapons and their health stat is a complete joke compared to ours, going by what i see online, most high level players really only go after low levels if those destroyed their cargo/heist prep/whatever.

Okay smartass, I want to know why MOST high rank players harass low rank players, will that sound better to you? I think you knew what I meant by my thread, you're just trying to show off and be difficult.
