What do people mean when they say "rec"

Recommended Posts

That usually doesn't mean anything. They just type that to scare you. I've witnessed that too many times. "REC" kinda means that he recorded your 'mistake' or something that should get you banned but some actually report you so they just type "REC" to let you know that they have been recording you. You can either expect a ban soonish or nothing.

It has many uses :)

Meant to be said as a threatening, as a bluff or as a coping mechanism with the pain of getting your cargo REKT :lol: or some people say it after they crashed into someone (on purpose or not on purpose) so they can try to manipulate the other driver if he's insecure and hence avoiding a report :mellow:

More truckers in ETS2 it has in front of nick tag "REC" or they write on the chat "rec". The point is that probably they recording in order to reporting someone. Sometimes they say they are recording, but this is not true.They lie to scare :D

I do that too but lately I forget to start the recording and I regret it so bad... :unsure:

On the other hand I love how most players have that REC tag in their nicks to scare the players but from my experience (mostly on the CD road) 50% of them are abusing the game rules.
Had a situation when a guy was overtaking me from the right (out of the road) and I saw him writing "recorded you" and I was like ....... DUDE you recorded how you are not obeying the rules !?!?:thinking:<_<

So yeah just drive safely and calmly especially on the busy roads so you don't get yourself punished whether someone is recording you or not.

I have recording as a tag just so people know before they want to decide to ram or troll. If someone crashes into me and they apologise I have no problem with that, I will only report if it is intentional. If people want to roll the dice thinking I'm not recording they can chance their luck because they can view the evidence for themselves when report goes in.
