Default PR kidnapping, how many times have we been in this situation?


You know those moments, all squads are full/locked. You need an Uber to somewhere on the map and the driver will communicate by beeping and it isn't until you're in with them that either they haven't got a microphone or they don't speak your language...regardless, cause their game volume is so damn loud or they simply do not understand the importance of your cries for stop, they will take you with them which ends up in many scenarios being a Logi truck on it's way to swallow an enemy TOW missile.

In your case "stop musheenoo" ('stop the machine') could easily help.
Also keep in mind that people tend to prioritize transporting their own squads quickly, and not doing too much catering regarding random blueberries.

The purpose of logi is not to taxi people.

Hmm, repeated cries of "stop" really ought to do it I would have thought. It's hardly a cryptic request in a moving vehicle, even without giving the verb an object.

Well, sometimes you are just at the end of your tolerance and just say fuck it.

Or on the other side of the problem, when I get in a truck, tell everyone nearby on local where I'm going and offer them a ride, people get in. That's fine until we get going and all over the place along the way, especially when it's too dangerous for me to stop, they're demanding that I stop and let them off. Either I ignore them and keep going and they're calling me a retard, or I do stop to let them off and get hit by a LAT, or I try to explain to them why I'm not stopping, which distracts me from the nonstop conversation going on in squad chat... either way, there's good reason why people are hesitant to drive vehicles.

but sometimes it’s really fun the screams asking you to stop as you approach the cache

This is exactly what i do and exactly what happens. These people are obviously less intelligent who are either un-aware of the dangers of stopping without cover for vehicle, even a simple depression where the ground dips. Its annoying when they say "stop, stop, stop" repeatedly like they are deadly stupid serious and assertive as if they are giving an order for you to stop right in that spot. If your mind is in the take orders mode you just listen without thinking, its an active awareness to blindly not listen to suggestions. If they wait to say "stop" when vehicle passes through cover thats ok naturally, because of the vehicles position.

Worse not caring which specific spot of cover for the vehicle to stop at regardless of what happens to that persons playing experience or teams tickets.. Or the third possibility is when they say "stop" they dont mean like right there, right then, they just dont elaborate to "pull into cover then stop for me". I remember stopping one time when this smart guy said stop, we died then he said "I didnt mean like right there". Great learning moment, too bad many people have learning disability and wont examine what exactly it was they did that got them killed.

Did I mention I'm a deadly SOB? Life is like a box of chocolates fool, you never know if its me till you break down that psychological warfare that done happened to you or your friendlies. Get to know me on the Squad v12 and Project Reality 1.5 teamwork playlist on YouTube for 20+ skills
