does anyone actually race, to race?

20 replies 185 views Edited Oct 21, 2013

im sick of playing anything online anymore, its just a bunch of (words i cant say here).   when i join a standard race, i wanna race, not be in a destruction derby.  if you wanna race dirty like that, make a GTA race where you can actually get rockets and try to blow up people.  leave standard racing for those of us that can pass someone without diliberatley trying to wreck someone.

I do. I love racing and the cars and motorbikes in GTA handle really well surprisingly.

 

Sometimes if I'm playing with friends though and someone bumps me, I will bump them back. It's all in good fun though and we are usually on mic laughing about it.

 

On the most part, we race seriously.

I'm getting so horked up.

I only race with my crew members. If I do race with strangers and they constantly try to spin me out, I change the race to gta race and shoot out their tires

My clan and I always try to race clean. Of course accident happen... but we always try to race as fair as possilbe.  If you are joining random rooms though, be prepared for anything. I wouldn't expect a whole lot of integrity with randoms.

I like to race to race. Those that have no driving skillz must think their only option is to wreck others and use your car for braking in hairpin turns. Mostly it's fustrating, but if you learn their intentions quickly just brake right before the corner and watch them go flying off the course right in front of you.   :smileytongue:

Me and my friends race for cash and RP boosting. We dont race competitively. We determine which one of us is in need of cash and we LET that person win 1st place over and over...for a few hours.

THIS is about the only LEGIT way to boost in GTAOnline anymore...thanks to Rockstar patching all the exploits. They mess with my money making one more time...and Im gonna go postal on em. For realz.

"If it ain't rubbin', it ain't racin'."

 

You will not find a race where cars don't hit each other. If you learn how to drive better, you can take them out before they take you out. Or, go play single player and race against stupid NPC's.

going to have to agree, this game lends itself to that kind of racing.  it's cool if that's how you want to race w/ your crews, but I think this game is more about aggressive driving than a regular racing game, so I wouldn't expect people to not bump & grind.  anyway the guy keeping the better line is going to beat the guy trying to take everybody out more often than not.  just got to watch that guy coming up behind ya : P  I just wouldn't take it to seriously and enjoy what it is.
