GTA Online Player wrongly accused of being a bad sport
In the endless battles for GTA Online controversial tactics are used constantly, regardless of the cause.
It doesn’t matter if the fight is about unfairly distributed heists, a classic struggle between griefer and grief, or an altercation among drunken revelers at a pool party. Things don’t always turn out in your favor.
One GTA player was one of those players, and they were branded a bad sportsman by the game for their self-defense against other players.
It seems that there is no GTA Justice.
The thread about this started with TheLordsLifter sharing footage of them being hit by a car filled with players. They then attempt to drive-by shoot but are stopped by an RPG explosion from TheLordsLifter. TheLordsLifter then gets a bad sports notification. TheLordsLifter captions the clip: “How am I the bad guy when they attacked me first?”
Many of the other players agreed with the notion that TheLordsLifter was wrongly accused. User guides said: “The) bad sport system stupid, you get poor sport points for defending yourself, but people get rewarded if they destroy your cargo.” and RAH2458, adding: “They destroy mine (and) don’t even cover the insurance. I blow them up to repay the favor, get hit with bad sport, and have to pay for their vehicle. Rockstar logic I guess.”
DragonPaul_Z, on the other hand, accused TheLordsLifter that they were partially responsible for the collision. He said: “bro, your vehicle was in the middle, at the green signal, and you weren’t moving.” “Totally your fault!” user gorpsligock posted a link to the subreddit, r/gtatrafficcourt. This forum is dedicated to sharing clips of traffic accidents among GTA players and NPCs.
Papasan, a user, highlighted the same actions that led to the game’s fury. He said: “(It’s) because they destroyed their vehicle.” It doesn’t matter who attacked whom first”, to which TheLordsLifter replied: “This was not something that I was aware of.” It was fair to do whatever since they had shot me first.
It seems that this awareness was given to TheLordsLifter before any serious problems. User windmillninja said: “I wouldn’t sweat it.” Before you can go to a bad sports lobby, you have first to destroy a lot of personal vehicles.
Others tried to cheer TheLordsLifter by complimenting their car, the BF Weevil. This vehicle is quite popular because of its unique looks and high customization.
