Also it still astounds me that people dont get that public lobbies are essentially PvP servers. If you dont want to engage in player battles then dont join a server where that is part of the experience. I for one think it actually benefits the experience.
The penalties NEED to be there. Also, RP is more valuable than cash. If you dont have RP you could have all the money in the world but you would be limited to the starting pistol. Once you gain RP you gain access to better missions ones that eventually pay out 10-20k for just a few minutes work. Ive sunk about 75 hours into the online and I can't quit playing its absolutely the most entertaining online mode Ive played in quite some time. The activities by themselves aren't stellar but wrapped all around this awesome open world lobby system and the hustle of making it big the motivation to keep going with this is really strong for me.
Aight. Well we have three. I think we'll need four at the least to make a decent attempt. I figure two people on the ground to help thin out opposition and actually jack the tanks one person to help drop off and pick up the ground crew if they die and the cargobob pilot.
Obviously the ground crew will be the ones in the most danger. If we can get a 4th person on board im down to try this either Saturday or Sunday night.
