Thumbs up Who else pit manuevers other players while racing in GTA Online?

I can't be the only one. It's especially entertaining when my opponents have mics.

You will very quickly lose your "good sport" bonus doing this along with probably a huge bunch of downvotes on play with this person.

Probably the biggest unwritten rule in a racing game, while GTA is not a racing game as such you would be on my hitlist for life for this

Then again i can't even get into online yet lol

It's fun but I'm not the one who starts it. If someone tries to mess with me I'll give 'em hell. Otherwise I'll race normally.

This goes to freeroam as well. I'll wait if another player draws first. After that I will kill him 5 times. I think that's a good amount of deaths for someone that shoots you in the back.

I have no problem voiding the good sport bonus when a player trashtalks while simultaneously taking the game too seriously. Thus the entertaining part starts.

Five times seems justifiable. Not too much, not too little, just enough to teach the player a little humility.

I don't believe contact with other players cars during a race counts as a negative for the 'good sport' bonus...

You make a very good point. GTA, by its own name alone, isn't for the righeous or honorable. If that were the case, we wouldn't be able to get passed the first mission with Franklin boosting cars.

This is why I'm forced to pit others in races.

I did this my first race ever, and I have no idea why but it was the funniest thing ever. It was just this dude and I at the home stretch pretty much and I took this wide swing and just hit him so perfectly and he spun out. It was amazing.

I hate people that do it. Particularly when you're slipstreaming them to take the lead so they decide to pit you because they suck at actual racing. But it's part of the game so you get over it.

Makes grinding races win to unlock car improvements VERY frustrating though. Especially since it's hard enough to even find a race that has the car class you want to level. Then when you do all people do is race dirty.

Nope, it's a scrub thing to do and I would rather just abuse slipstream at the last second. Always works for me.

Also I can easily tell when it's going to happen and counter it easily.

I'm sorry but this is GTA and anything goes.

If you are good enough to pit your opponent and not lose control of your car then why wouldn't you. One less racer trying to take you out at the final turn.

Yep, I'm sorry I know its annoying but everyone has catchup on which is bullshit if some guy can come up and overtake me when I had a 10+ second lead then I'm gonna take them out. GTA races are so fun I've yet to run into anyone that knows you can shoot rockets backwards.

Assholes, that's who. lol. But I must admit, it is fun to play bumber cars once in a while, just gets frustrating after a while though. Oh well, it is GTA I guess, that's why I don't let it get to me.

I honestly get pleasure when someone pit manuvers me, and I end up in last, and by the time the race finishes, I end up beating the cheap fuck in the race ( the honest way ). I will talk so much shit to him after I do.
I have done this many times and will continue to do so.
