Hey guys, if this thread continues in discussion of factions, it's going to be locked and archived. It's just faction bashing at this point with no constructive criticism, just pointless opinions to flame at factions they don't agree with. Continue with other topics.

Stop normalizing murder as go-to solution for each and every problem. What should be the absolute last resort is excessively overused due to how easy it is to get away with murder due to lacking infrastructure in forms of witnesses/CCTV and pre-1980s technology for investigators to pick up on. Killing anyone, especially cops would not let you get away like this is GTA:Online with wanted stars disappearing after a few minutes, but lead to a city-wide manhunt with hundreds of people chasing you down for killing one of them opposed to just some guy that decided to run from a semi-serious incident or "took that L" and accepted getting called a dick rather than killing the stranger and half their family for insulting your pride.

 

Actively selecting your weapons from the weapon wheel in a vehicle and thus having them shown either in the vehicle or when you forget to unselect it before exiting the car should not be shrugged off as "desync" and "bug". You intentionally selected the gun in order to be shootin' tootin' at the earliest convenience and have the weapon brandished, so be ready to face the consequences or put your dick weapon away like a normal human being.

 

The idea of creating an artificial 50/50 balance between cops and robbers whilst advertising yourself as "heavy roleplay" is inherently flawed and destroys any natural cat and mouse game between criminals and law enforcement (new technology, things, ideas, concepts -> new crime schemes -> new paths to deter/tackle crime schemes) and opens doors wide open for stupid crime to become even more of a common occurance. Why bother being smart about what you do when killing someone in the open road won't get you put behind bars anyway? At that point you might as well scrap the (heavy) roleplay, make it cops and robers and call it a day.

 

Remove (M) characters.

dont remove (m) characters just wipe 75% of gang rpers most of em are shit, underage chars or not.

or you know, put it behind an application wall. So that people know people who are (m) rpers can portray a kid, and not just someone who screams at cops at 2 AM without any fear of having their parents called.

When you are about to start an Italian character (may he be FROM Italy or BORN in America), keep in mind that you are roleplaying in the year 2022 and clowns like this usually get their pockets ran and stabbed. Why? Because you are a clown, that's it. THERE IS NO WAY you'd be walking around dressed up like this; Italians do love nike, adidas, gucci, you name it. Also, fucked up terms such whaddyamean, fuggedabboutit and all the bullshit y'all write everyday make no fucking sense and they highlight the fact that you do zero research on what you are currently roleplaying.

please do more research

 

funny because it's prob people that live in europe that do exactly this, because they can't rp americans either. any type of americans, cops, gangs etc.

Dropping likes in reports is nothing else but an attempt to backseat moderate and influence administrator decisions, and should be outrightly prohibited

I'd say violence as a whole is overused. Not every petty conflict needs to end with someone going to the ER and the other guy in jail.

 

One example of this was with 2 dudes that were harassing some girls. When asked to stop and leave them be they immediately proceeded to throw hands, got themselves arrested and, realistically, would have a lot of difficulty finding work ever again. All for... what? Seems silly to mess up your life over such a small thing.
