@Wulfingo, Because if i choose to play with a friend on the child server, i will happily avoid killing people or blowing up cars. Right now i cant choose. Bad sport should be for cheaters and spawn campers. O and also, rockstar could fix you camping issues many many ways better than BS. Why not spawn u randomely and further away. Or use the ghosting.
Bad Sport on GTA Online?!
Bad Sport on GTA V? Are you serious? I just got bad sport just then for the second time and this is making me not play GTA V at all. I understand that it makes people not get spawn traped but its GTA you can do what ever you want, why dont you just get kicked from the game instead of getting banned for 2 or more real days. I just want to have fun with my friends getting revenge from the people that have been killing us. It would be better if you guys just make it so you get kicked from the game or pay their insurence even if you have no money, you would get negative money.

I Know i just got it and now i cant do youtube videos with my friends for the whole weekend! i got it by having a war in private mode with my mate, its crazy! get rid of this rockstar you've ruined the fun of online!
Damn bad sport actually sucks ! 2 days wtf
Bad Sport Is absolute bullshit I mean come on paying is enough! I was messing around with some friends and we were destroying cars and that was my first strike,second like two guys in a buzzard(which he owned) came after be I destroyed it and the I was labeled as a bad sport after a few more incedents
When you blow up someone's car, you should get a prompt on your phone between paying their insurance or receiving bad sport rep. Means griefers who start the game and just fuck with everyone without doing anything productive will be filtered to the trash pile, while contributing players who are playing the game properly and occasionally having to put cars in the scrapyard for vengeance/bounty/accidental reasons will take the wallet hit and deal with it without being called 'bad sports' and filtered into the chaotic shit-servers.
Snutyourgob, Nice to see more children around. Althought perhaps your a bit too young to play this game. Don't you think? Here's and interesting thought. Why can't everyone who complain about being hunted down like pigs and in the process blowing up the hunters cars in self defence do the same thing? My problem is not the lunatics, but rather ignorance you people seem to have in regards to what BS is and why are you sent there and should just stay in there away from the other players. Heck unlike majority of the people here who complain about others hunting them down I never had such problem. Usually pigs like you are slaughtered after the first attempt at my life in public sector. You people really don't seem to get it. Public servers are servers for everyone but with certain rules set up. Simple because it's public doesn't mean you should be allowed to do what ever you want and annoy other players. Bad sports server is server for those who want to play without rules. They just need to fix it up a bit. You can even play with your friends in there. Just get them to become bad sports. The tank system is broken I agree. If you buy a tank then you should automatically be sent to bad sports server for as long as you have it. Because lets face it, you did not buy it to pick daisies and chicks.
This is a great idea they have...I have had alot of idiots after me and have killed them all and chased them down blowing up their cars and never got bad status...Think you guys who are complaining are over doing it and deserves the status. maby i will get it in the future and if i dont give a fuck, then i can go rampage for 3 days to kill assholes or do something else then playing...because its more frustrating with players that use passive mode and still can kill you....fucking cheaters
Shut, yet you bothered to reply to the last comment. Few posts you may have but they fully address your immaturity that I don't even need to bother pointing it out. Also you might want to go back to school to learn math. Hopefully you will be one of the idiots stupid enough to attack me in the game just to be slaughtered like a little piglet.
Ye I agree I was just messing around with mu friends in gta online and blowing up each other's vehicles (sticky bomb jousting) but no I get put into a bad sport lobby and am stuck on my own 4 2 days
stuck in bad sport now for the second time for 4 days. so im sitting in a party with a load of the lads and they are all doing missions or having a laugh in free mode and im stuck alone like an idiot. yes i did blow peoples cars up ( some in self defense and some whilst fighting with them or trying to take a bounty) but to be punished in a game is fuckin ridiculous. is this supposed to be enjoyable?? seriously you are punishing people in a game thats ment to be for our enjoyment??? make a passive free roam for these fucking idiots you made this punishment for. the rest of us want to play GRAND THEFT AUTO ware you kill people rob shit and blow shit up.
as for all you fuckin pussies who say go play TDM how does that compare to chasing some fucker around the map in a car, chopper or jet and having it out with them??? fuck off and play sims or somthin
I absolutely agree with everyone on this forum about the "Bad Sport" feature. It is a giant loophole in the GTA 5 Online experience. I would suggest a solution to the problem, but honestly there isn't one. This "feature" should just be deleted from the game. At least make it so where "Bad Sports" get banned for a maximum time of say 2 hours, but TWO days? That is a ridiculous amount of time to wait just so you can get back on and get killed again repeatedly until you become a "Bad Sport" again.
Bad sport is legitimately the stupidest thing ever! Every time I play gta5 I get chased down by a guy in his custom car trying to shoot me. Naturally, I defend myself by throwing a sticky in his car and blowing it up and I get freaking bad sport!! Wtf rockstar. This ha
Bad sport is fucking stupid!!! It's not my fault I blow up a guys Bugatti when he is chasing after me trying to kill me with his smg! If people are going to come after me in their personal vehicle or not I'm going to do everything in my power to kill them and make sure they don't chase me. If I'm paying for destroying the damn car there is no reason I should get bad sport. Now because of this stupid freaking "rule" I can't play with my friends for two days?! Are you serious rock star?! I thought I was playing gta 5, but apparently I'm playing some game where u get in trouble for blowing up a car that someone tried to kill me with. Seriously WTF rockstar!
i think its pretty much unanimous that the community DOES NOT WANT to get punished for destruction of player owned vehicles ( intentional or otherwise). as many people have already stated it is relatively easy to get a badsport mark in the process of engaging in combat with other players. either by defending ones self or attacking other players. it is even more easily done when you are flying a buzzard attack chopper, calling merryweather airstrikes , using mercenaries, c4, grenades, or heavy firepower such as machine guns, grenade launchers and rpgs. So are we to believe that rockstar did not intend for us to use these weapons on each other? or are we to believe that rockstar did not anticipate that people would most likely be engaging in combat while driving a personal vehicle?
Personal vehicles are insured, when you destroy someones insured vehicle you pay part of the insurance cost. In the case of my motorcycle, when someone destroys it, the penalty levied against them actually reduces my replacement cost to $0. I dont think they should potentially get banned if i were to attack them on my bike and then get it blown up because they decided to throw a brick of c4 or a grenade out the window at me. i believe it is unfair to say the least, especially when the main premise of gta is sandbox style freedom and anarchy. players have plenty of options to escape to another session or kick the offending player(s) from the session, place bounties, or even use passive mode (which needs to be fixed badly and I will address in a moment)
Another issue is when you receive badsport marks for getting disconnected from a mission due to server or network issues. again these will eventually result in a ban if you are on a crappy connection. again these seem too extreme and unfair.
Finally I personally have issues with the passive mode and the ways it can be exploited. Ive seen numerous people using passive mode to avoid being shot while running people down in their cars or ramming them out of the air in a chopper. Just last night I encountered a duo working together to exploit passive mode. One player was in passive mode, thus preventing my gun from working when aimed in his direction. his partner was not in passive mode and would stand directly in front of the passive player and shoot me...knowing i could not shoot back because the game would register my gun as being pointed at a passive player. this is something that needs to be addressed immediately as it IS a direct abuse of the game mechanics for personal advantage.
We dont want to get punished for defending ourselves against players in cars, we dont want to get punished for accidental collateral damage. When you destroy a player vehicle you pay part of the insurance cost, if you want to discourage players from doing it...increase the portion they pay for doing so but dont ban them.
We dont want to be banned for getting disconnected from missions because of network or server issues. We dont want to get banned because we decided we did not want to complete a mission( something that is our right to decide).
Rockstar needs to fix passive mode so it cannot be exploited. Players regularly use it to avoid being shot while ramming people with cars. and they exploit its mechanics to work in duo's and prevent you from shooting back while they shoot and kill you.
Rockstar needs to support the sandbox style freedom that gta lovers have come to expect and not punish people for playing within the confines of that sandbox. player have options to leave session or find new session or retalliate as they see fit. there is no excuse for crying about someone shooting you, its gta ...get used to it or go play something else. you might as well be crying that you dont like getting shot while your playing battlefield.
Darcsoul, it's nowhere close to being anonymous. Theres a billion players out there playing and at best maybe just maybe 1k people here on support forums complaining about it. Do the math. Considering the support forum was created to adress those who have certain problems or dislikes I would have to say that it's anonymous that majority don't have the problem as they are not here complaining but rather having fun playing the game.
Rockstar needs to weight carefully and decide how many players are actually against bad sports, separate the lies of trolls and griefers from problems of actual players with it and then decide if it's worth wasting someones effort to apease this ammount of players,especially if it's only a small handfull who complain on support forum.
First off I agree that this is probably the most idiotic execution of what originally sounded like a good idea. I was just labeled as this "bad sport" for the most broken reasons. I was chasing one of the 9K bounties in a buzzard attack chopper, in the middle of this epic chase the bounty drifted past the (also a broken/ stupid area) impound lot full of vulnerable out in the open player vehicles. one of the free-fire missiles missed target and landed straight into the lot. I was then labeled as a bad sport and am currently banned to the bad sport lobby for two days. This lobby is empty and I cannot play with my friends. I did not pay hard earned money I had to work for In REAL LIFE and stand in line for a game I cannot even have fun in. It is my first 2 consecutive days off in months and go figure I'm banned from actually having fun in the game. why are these vehicles even destroy-able if it is that big of a deal. APB (All Points Bulletin) the original GTA online MMO (look it up if you don't know about it, also not promoting it so don't do the obvious troll known as "why don't you go play that then" or any variant of trolling be an adult please) did it right the the free mode is fun only groups can kill each other so people who did not want to be trolled by getting shot stayed out of them. The vehicles are also invulnerable to trolls and cannot be blown up unless they are targets(again not promoting just giving advice on how it should be executed). This game is close to being out the door because of this system this is beyond a game breaker. I can't express how truly upset I am with out going on a massive nerd rant. (more than I already am) Remember who helped you make that billion R*. Fixing a money making exploit is not more of a priority compared to making the game fun and enjoyable. Just some more advice you should stop touching the money system (ex. slashing profit from missions, rent, medical bills, insurance ect) it is starting to look bad on your part. People are starting to think you want to shove those micro-transactions down peoples necks. fix the bad sport system fix the issues people are complaining about most. All the little crap can be fixed later. PS4 and X-Box One are right around the corner, do you want to give gamers a reason to keep playing well into next year or were you just here for the quick billion. Time to really prove yourselves. Was online just a joke? The story was great but was that it? Give us a reason not to sell this game away, give us a reason to stay. I know how hard it is to make a game but that doesn't mean step on the people you made it for.
Murder a low level repeatedly to the point where his medical bills swallow him in bankruptcy= Good sport! Destroy a car however, you are satan spawn.
in a game were you can murder innocent people that the game developers thought 'lets give them a hammer so they can crush the skull of any other player if they buy the special edition but i dont want to see any player on car violence ' come on this is a game for ultimate fun but now i dont even want to play it because the problems are out weighing the good parts , this is not a game for a bad sport rule because were all bad sports i kill a guy with a knife i get xp i fuck with his car i get sent to jail were when your sent its not worth playing anymore might aswell do something productive like read a book or some shit , rockstar you are being a complete dickhead and hope we can get back to gta rather then this 18 rated childs game
@Winfingo They made $1 billion, but sold more like 15 million copies. Also not everyone plays online, so the online player count is significantly less. Do the math. Also learn how to spell.
Many people wouldn't complain, because many game companies wouldn't give a crap / its too late.I know a bunch of people not happy about this who didn't complain.
I just wouldn't buy 'The Sims' and complain about the lack of violence and explisions. Why would you buy GTA and complain about the violence and explosions?
Im with everyone on this, i was playing free mode and kept getting hounded by the same group of people over and over. I was using c4 to blow up thier cars or dropping grenades whilst they wher in persuit of me, i got dubbed as a 'bad sport' and can nolonger play with my friends which was the whole point of me playing online in the first place. Bad sport should be for players who consistantly quit missions early or as a punishment for people who glitch/bug abuse.
I agree this Bad Sport thing is sooo stupid
I am FUCKING FURIOUS WITH ROCKSTAR. This is a freaking game, u are supposed to blow up cars and kill others. Now I cant play with my friends for DAYS!?!?!?! WTF!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?! I thought it was a damn joke.
I would understand if u get banned for 1-2 hours, but 4 freaking days? Real dissapointment rockstar.................
REMOVE BAD SPORT ALL TOGETHER..... since when has there been rules on this game just the insurance bills for destroying personal cars should be in place if you dant have the money you get mineus GTA$ or merryweath could attack you constantly untill you can afford to pay the insurance company not get isolated from friends for things most dont even deserve bad sport
As This conversation seems to be going on and on and on! I decided last week to email R* and ask if bad sports would be kept or if it would be got rid of? There reply in short was that it would be slightly tweaked but will stay as they have been overwhelmed with good comments about bad sports
So hopefully now we can all forget this topic and start giving R* helpful suggestions on how to improve the gaming experience, I for one think there's much more things R* needs to do than get rid of bad sports
Rockstar should LISTEN TO THE PEOPLE who obviously, as a majority, don't like bad sport, and remove it as a feature! At the very least, remove it in free mode and improve passive mode in its place.
Make it so passive mode:
1) Makes it so you can't die by being ran over by other players (if it's somehow -too hard- for you guys to program driving through people into the game, just make it so they can take the physical force of being ran over without taking any damage to their HP, similar to GTA IV Friendly Fire Off Lobbies)
2) Make it so you can't die while in a car when in passive mode - implement the same defenses in the above point for anyone who is hit by a person in Passive Mode driving a car so people don't just use passive mode as in-car invincibility
I've played GTA online enough to know that if someone shoots at me, I'm going to shoot back, and then if I die, I will kill them in revenge. But there's no need to complain about bad sport because through doing this, I haven't gotten labelled that. Just because you're wreckless with your actions doesn't mean that other people have to deal with it. It's not that hard to turn passive mode on. And if other people blow up your car, you don't need to blow up theirs, they will get punishment for doing that and you could continue to shoot them in the face. This is a game for violence but a lot of people don't get on to kill other players unless in a death match. It's unfair for players to deal with people like this that just wander around killing other players in the middle of whatever the crap they are doing. So those A-holes that stalk you? They're going in the bad sports area. Just need to be more creative when seeking revenge.
There just needs to be options for people who want to run about killing each other and blowing up personal vehicles. There are currently options like passive mode and solo mode that should support those people who don't want the violence. Freemode should mean freedom to do whatever you like. However it seems that Rock* are catering to the masses of gamers who want a happy time in freemode.
So there needs to be options for freemode like an "Anything Goes Lobby". Punishment for blowing up cars in creative ways is not really in the spirit of GTA.
I can accept the fact that Rock* are catering to these types of players. But what really sucks is that they provide no options for the rest of us. Zero options for people who like GTA multiplayer the way it always has been.
Dear rockstar games you guys can go fucking fuck yourselves ypu fucking fucks. Ever since I've had that bad sport bullshit I can't seem to get in a lobby where I dont fucking die 494849e939484 times because of the fucking assholes you make me play with. Its fucking bullshit and they ALWAYS have fucking tanks!!!! Yeah I can see why they are in the bad sport section. They fucking play so maliciously that it makes it fucking impossible to play the fucking game. I had to fucking shut my fucking ps3 off in order to get the fuck out of it because I couldn't fucking do anything fucking else. So fucking what if you have to blow up a car in order to get some asshole who's fucking chasing you down in their car or fucking running you over in THEIR FUCKING CAR. This whole bad sport thing is fucking bullshit and I hope you all fucking choke on cocks for your stupid faggot ass shit your putting players who fucking defend themselves by any means fucking necessary. Your company is fucking worthless as a whole for having a fucking glitchy ass game and with the fucking money you guys made off of it you could have fucking done better. Go fucking fuck yourselves.
If my friends and I want to blow each other's fucking vehicle's to a smoldering shit peice of metal lets us fucking do so. Grow your fucking balls back rockstar.
