Some COWARD just stabbed my horse!

I went to Six Point cabin to get shotgun slugs (5 every time) and while I'm inside I see a red dot come up so I ready my shotgun but nothing. I go out to find my horse laying there stabbed! Then they ran away like a little girl!

No I saw who it was but quickly forgot it. Doh. And no it was a player. I still can't figure why he'd do that except maybe xp.

This is why online does'n't interest me until they get private lobbies set up. The whole idea of being able to get xp by killing another player's  horse baffles me, it sometimes seems like R* are encouraging idiotic behaviour.

While I was fishing a while back, had a group shoot my horse, so while I was trying to get out of the fishing animation.  They just sat there shooting all around me and then ran when I started shooting back.  It took several minutes waiting for the horse to respawn.

I'd do that for free.

If you think about it, that's next-level griefing, and smart, too.  No gunshot means no noise, and he or she isn't wasting an arrow.  They loot your saddlebags and abscond with XP AND loot.  It's actually quite brilliant if you think about it.  A candy-ass move, but no less impressive for the intent.

Hell, he or she probably gets away with it more often than not, especially against players unaware of what's happening.

Same.  I played through the prologue and got right up to the free roam portion, and haven't touched it since.  Of course, I'm still only on Chapter 3 of the story mode (50% completion) so I really haven't prioritized the online portion as of yet.  But the horror stories are enough to give anyone not overly enthused with the PvP lifestyle pause.

You know what we need?  Traps and decoys.  You set up a decoy, like a scarecrow that looks like it's fishing, then lie in wait for some griefer to approach while you hide off to the side waiting to ambush him.  If they make the decoys life like enough to pass muster until someone is up close, then a whole new world is opened up for online play.

Traps would be fantastic too.  You tie off your horse to a hitching post and then place a bear trap near him that gets triggered if a tool tries to stab the horse or rob the saddlebags.  OOOOOOH, or dynamite (I'd use the old nag for that, boobytrap a horse that blows up). 

Giving players the tools to bait griefers is a much better solution than relying on a broken parley system or any other solution short of private lobbies.  I'd rather be proactive than reactive, relying on horse insurance and being a victim before I can fight back is for yellow-bellies and cowards; give me the ability to be cunning and ruthless without being the same kind of jabroni that I would have to act like under the current model.

The ability to build a wall around St Denis, and then set fire to the city and watch all the trolls burn a wonderful, inescapable, conflagration? 

Just me?  Ok, then ...

Change it to the Van Horn outpost, which is a crappy place to begin with, and you have a deal.

St. Denis may be dirty, but I dig the architecture.

Yep: I was fishing on the River Bank in the middle of BFE and I knew there was a pink dot roaming around somewhere. I heard a shot and took cover drew a weapon and nothing. So I kept on fishing. I walk over in my horse is dead. These punks do crap like this and then they seem to jump off the server to a different roaming area server

Before I got my little pony insurance, I had a dude who was running around knifing people's horses in a small town the second they got off them. Then he would zig-zag away. I think people do this to be funny. I can bet some of us are on some Youtube video or Twitch stream somewhere.

Think I'll stay away still from online until Rockstar do something about it.

I really don't think R* are gonna do a whole lot about it.  I suggest you don't let the bullies and douchbags force you out of the playground, just play anyway.  It's too good a game to miss just because some people are devoid of anything resembling a soul or moral compass.  A-holes are gonna a-hole regardless (see the why you grief thread, or other similar ones).

Killing their horse is going to be my new reaction to griefers. 

Griefers, Kill me for no reason, I kill you and your horse!

That's the first thing I do to trolls 😂. Nothing more satisfying than headshotting their horse then throwing dynamite as they fall.

Welp. I have something fun to do later when I hop on. I fully intend on using dynamite now when they fly off their horse. Sounds like a bomb ass time.
