    Only able to complete one Heist finale, Prison Break. Ran a couple set ups but host didn't run next one, or was unable to join, mostly to the lobby is full.

    Had some weird glitch where we'd start but it wouldn't fully load, the mini map and phone controls didn't work. We would only able to walk or drive but couldn't accomplish anything.

    Then there was a Prison Break finale when the host gave everyone 25% but a clueless level 40 was Demolition and was unable to hijack the prison bus....twice, end of a potential $250,000 payout.

    Best: People trying to ram you while you're in passive mode.
    Worst: People who can't do anything worth :censored:.

    Failed the first mission in Pac Stan because we ran out of time. Didn't even know that was possible. The navigators were complete crap and only got like three pics before time was up.

    A friend of mine recently quit that setup because the navigators got in the same car then took off and never went back to pick up him and the other driver.

    Joined a small lobby, almost immediately I receive a msg saying "You better watch out". Turned out to be the gunner for a turreted limo. I called for a Buzzard with intent of chasing it down. Instead I land on a rooftop since these 2 were targeting another player. A bunch of Sniper and RPG kills later, gunner sends me another msg calling me a 'feline' for being on a rooftop. I then send back "better get yur weak limo lmao". Also the CEO tried in vain to get to a nearby rooftop in his buzzard only to be denied by RPG.

    For some reason, I am jinxed for Pac Standards, as the ones I join are never completed. Prison Break and Humane Labs seem to be no problem though.

    Me too. But for a different reason. The ones I join are always, and I mean always, full. Then I'm forced into 5 minutes of Cloud Simulator 2013.

    Does the inverted flying challenge seriously reset if you get into a second plane? I did a 40k plus run in a stunt plane before dying and then got a Vestra to go after a bounty. I get the bounty with 1 minute on the clock and see that the top score on the leaderboard is now 15k and I'm not even on the leaderboard at all!

    Should've had more than enough for the discounted GP1 but now I need another $1,104 before I can buy it

    You don't need the drivers, th navigators can do all the work. But zwo navigators in one car is stupid because the setup lasts longer.

    You probably don't need the navigators either. All the vans spawn in the same locations each time.

    Best:

    Killing a 9k bounty on a Faggio Sport

    Killing someone in the DOD after they shot it with an RPG

    Blowing up my downed helicopter right as a griefers car is driving away, make it catch fire from the explosion and get the kill without having to pay insurance for blowing up his car

    Buying a discounted GP1

    Getting into a tense chase with a Buzzard in my GP1


    Worst:

    Losing a 40k score on the inverted flying challenge

    People constantly shooting up/wrecking my GP1

    So I finished a Pac Standard AFTER the 2x is over, but not after a bunch of restarts and rejoining same finale after someone left. Then only get $144 grand since we all took the bike route.

    Worst: Random player who in the Titan of a job mission wanted me to go in his armored Kuruma instead of letting me drive my own car. He kept crashing into me and harassing me all the way to the airport.

    My revenge: Took the heavy sniper rifle and blew up the Titan. Twice.

    Saw some level 490 CEO alternating between Ghost Org and Off the Radar and picking on a poor level 5... So I brought out my Ruiner 2000 and he met a fiery demise :D

    Also downed a jet griefer in my KITT. I got the lock on him while he was flying in the opposite direction, and the missile pulled a hard 180º and destroyed him. :eek:

    I love this car :cheers:

    So, after failing to join a mission invite, Rockstar dumped me into a public session. I bit the bullet and went to sell a gang Peyote but got blown sky-high by a bright green Savage. Launched a homing rocket at it and did absolutely nothing, even with a direct hit. :rolleyes:

    Ok, it's probably a hacker then. Sorry that you have to deal with these idiots. :(

    I normally don't, hence the first bit about being dumped into a public lobby.

    Good old god mode helicopters spawned in by a modder. Clear as day spawned in by a modder with the color, and I've never understood why people ask modders to spawn them in forms they don't naturally spawn as cause that makes it obvious. Even my crew leader who is a modder himself refuses to spawn vehicles out of their natural colors because it makes it too obvious that it doesn't belong.

    Worst.

    Final checkpoint on Stunt - Gauntlet and I'm leading by about 3 seconds, then some pathetic excuse for a human being blocks the road, giving my two pursuers just enough time to pass me and rob me of $23k. I was absolutely livid. I even sent him a PSN message saying ":censored: you". Never done this to anyone before. :mad:

    Well, yesterday I made someone ragequit. Final lap on Green Machine, during the last three laps I had been chipping away his 3.5 second lead and was now within slipstream range. I zoom past and as the tube sends us speeding downwards he drafts me back and wants to pull a dirty move, but the Nero was having none of that and he got a face full of its majestic posterior :D

    52k for me :)

    Also had an occasion where the top 3 finished really close to each other (0.4s from 1st to 3rd) with me in 2nd. I got the winner's rewards and got recognised as such, while the winner got 3rd place rewards. I felt bad :p

    There's Captures that have the Rail Gun that'll carry over to Online. It is very OP. Shot down flying a Lazer and it gives no warning at all.

    I got one in between CEO Work and it's amazing for shooting down police helis.

    Some highlights from my CEO work last night


    0:00 - Paramedics Beating Up Civilians
    0:07 - Firetruck>Gang Member
    1:13 - Police Cruiser>Firetruck
    2:02 - Caddy Escape
    4:50 - Viper>Baja Truck
    5:02 - Crash Landing
    5:22 - Armoured Limo Chase
    15:34 - Lifted Truck

    There was also this guy who didn't like the fact I beat him in a freemode challenge


    And this guy who kept hiding in passive mode

    There's an interesting way to counteract a jet griefer. Approach his location from high as possible in another jet, and just tail his every move. He will try to locate you or evade your moves, and will either crash or taken down by another player with the homing launcher. I've done this several times with good results.

    Especially useful with friends or crew members with brains. I do that all the time in PS3 lobbies since several crew members still actively play it there, and we rarely if ever have a lobby that keeps a hostile jet in the air at the area that the crew I'm in bases operations from.

    Wait, don't you have a modder friend that can instantly nuke anyone misbehaving?

    That's only in the most extreme situations like when there are other modders in the lobby. Most of the time he makes an effort to play as if his system isn't jailbroken, and we usually don't take advantage of his abilities unless people are full tilt cheating themselves.

    Oh. Thanks for clarifying.
