Yeah for real man. I avoid people because 90% of the time they kill me.

It's hard to find a good crew out there.

My friends and I use closed sessions to hang out and do job/missions/activites, that way we avoid d-bags who just want to kill other players.

To go to a closed session: go to the pause menu in single player, go over to the "Online" tab, and then go down and select "Play GTA Online". This gives you several options, some of which are "Invite Only", "Closed Friends Session", or "Closed Crew Session". Start one up and send out the invites to your friends.

had to take a mandatory phone call from Lamar since I had to restart from R* "make 90% of peoples players disappear and do nothing about it" program

Some guy sees my walking along, runs up, then beats me with a stick while I can do nothing about it

THEN, because its technically the first time Ive died with that character, I have to watch that stupid scene with Cris! AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!

Only solution to this I've found is to launch private sessions and do Quick Jobs through your phone, or launch jobs when you're invited by NPCs. It's not so hard to find a good group of players in the mission lobbies, it's just Free Roam that's the problem.

I got so fed up of losing 50% of all the money I earned because d-bags used to kill me ($2k lost) when I wasn't paying attention (my own fault I suppose for assuming that other players might be capable of driving past another person without feeling the need to murder them), then they'd spawn camp me or sit outside any shop I was robbing before I could get to my car. Just got so frustrating that I wasn't making any money, so I went private.

Quick Jobs are brilliant, use them.

Driving into the countryside is the first thing I always do when joining a free roam lobby.

i'm guessing it's probably less than 5% character loss. If you exclude the people who do dumb things like start temp characters probably less than 1%. Random acts of violence can't really be blamed on rockstar that's totally on the crappy internet gaming community. so the only legit complaint you have is that people on the internet are crappy.. welcome to the internet
