The caption said “To the random troll who blew up my cargo during the sell mission and immediately left the game (he was on my team)” followed by an email from Rockstar Support.

The email said that although “as per game design other players can destroy the crates” they offered a “one time accommodation” for incident and added an astounding GTA$ 1,000,000 to their account.

The post gained over 6,700 upvotes in under 24 hours, as tons of players reacted in surprised that Rockstar Support actually compensated them for the incident.

While other players were skeptical that the email warranted a response from Rockstar Support, the original poster further fleshed out the situation in the replies.

“I allowed 2 random players to join my SecuroServ and started a cargo sell mission, one of them sticky-bombed the boat until it blew up. Then immediately quit out the game,” they said.

They go on to explain that the incident happened a few nights ago, which explained how Rockstar Support was able to get back to them. “I had spent all night loading up, it was worth a little over $1mil. I understand its part of the game but I’m glad Rockstar boosted my mood about it.”
