    From what Split Lip has said about the Good Sport/Bad Sport system, Rockstar seems to be Orwellian in their policies for GTA Online.

    I played online for the first time on Saturday. I wanted to name my character "Dirk Manus" but the game told me the name contained inappropriate language. :confused:

    That would be why, though that's pretty damn stupid.

    Out of all the shit GTA games have, "anus" is the drawn line.

    Way to go R*.

    Just one of many dumb decisions.

    Like how finishing a job and picking return to free mode puts you in a PUBLIC session.

    Hate hate hate the "wanted if cops see you in a stolen car" mechanic. LS supercops made a positive ID on a stolen vehicle and/or person of interest while he was going 110 mph in the other direction through heavy traffic? Seems legit.

    I fucking hate Simeon. Drive out in one of my ten cars, and if Simeon wants that type of car, I'm immediately stuck with a wanted level for leaving my garage with that car

    I did fucking nothing.

    Actually had some damn good fun online for once. Found out where a accessible heli port is near the los santos beach area. Me and 2 other friends flew all the way over to the military base and hijacked a fighter jet for each of us to have. Evaded the 5 star wanted level by climbing as high as possible and staying that height for a while. Shit was fucking awesome once the cops were off our ass.

    ...except, like an IDIOT, I accidentally pressed triangle(ps3 "eject" button). :banghead:

    Click both control sticks. It's like the single player special abilities.

    Finally got round to having a go in multiplayer the other day, within about a minute of spawning a random guy drove up to me, got out of his car, and started shooting at me, when I did the brave thing and run away, he simply drove around the block and ran me over. Then after respawning again some other guy shot me and killed me. Fun fun fun.
    Also, what does passive mode do? I paid $100 for it but didn't really notice any changes, although admittedly I didn't run into any other players for the rest of the time I was playing. Does it hide your icon on the map or something?

    Passive mode only makes you un-shootable on foot. It doesn't protect you from getting hit by a car, though, which is bullshit.

    Oh alright, I'll just continue to flee whenever I see another player in a car approach, are you still able to shoot other players yourself with it on? I'd assume not because that seems rather unfair

    Even more annoying. UGH! :( 

    Nope, can't use guns while in passive mode. It is called "passive" mode for a reason. :p 

    But I agree, it is unfair.

    Lol that was pretty awesome match yesterday Josh.

    We won a 2 vs 4 deathmatch after our deadweight team member quit out. The winning team kept changing as GTA V TDM spawns/maps suck and we'd be far away from eachother or get picked off and one douche liked to corner camp and use a silenced SMG in the maze making him annoying to pin down.

    We finally managed to secure a one kill lead though in the last minute and instead of fighting we hauled ass down the super steep hill to run out the clock as the other team tried desperately to land one last kill for a tie, I literally must have had one bullet left to kill me xD this was on Mazes.
