God damn CAR FARMERS EVERYWHERE. So boring, just kill themself whenever we get APB'd against them.
You know what's funny? If a crim wins an escape mission via escape, the enforcers will get more rep. Even though they lost.
I used to hate escape missions as enforcer but they've kinda grown on me. It just sucks when a crim takes off in a Bishada or Cisco and you don't have a good enough car.

Seriously, the dump truck will fare pretty well against any Enforcer, as long as they don't have a rocket launcher lol, in a 1v1 escape mission, basically as long as they aren't shooting at you and you pass through a repair station occasionally, all you have to do is drive. The thing is so damn heavy nothing can push it around, and if you practice, you can wait for an Enforcer to sideswipe you, slow down and steer into him, and you'll balance his car on the nose of the truck and then you can drive him around or slam it into a wall, he can't get out as long as you maintain speed or he'll get run over. That and the comical aspect of a slow speed escape always entertains me.
Bishada for lief. I also hope stupid stuff that counts as crimes gets fixed. (Getting shot, falling...)
[QUOTE=Dutch;23548993]You know what's funny? If a crim wins an escape mission via escape, the enforcers will get more rep. Even though they lost.[/QUOTE] Probably because the enforcers didn't lose all their lives and lose like that.
I usually get in the armored blue trucks and just drive in circles around some of the smaller roads, if it's 1v1, it's pretty much over.
I usually get in a truck and try to ram my peruser into a wall. I like trucks.
One thing I hate is just wanting to do some criminal shit like rob stores/people to get some petty cash, then having APB on me every 5 seconds, pisses me off. Should be a way to turn off the 'PVP' aspect if you just want to farm up a bit.
Started my Crim on an EU server last night, i forget the name (Begins with a Y i think?) Anyway, Joined in with this group, didn't know but it took his matchmaking into consideration Long story short, i got raped by people with 3-slotted SMG's :( On a side note, the guy i was with had an awesome car, very sports-car ish o.o

Obeya? There's no server with a Y at the start :v:
[QUOTE=lockdown6;23560480]"So I'm there looting stores when suddenly the cops come after me I mean what the hell that's not how things work"[/QUOTE] But I hate having to escape for 5 minutes from cops, for doing a 1 minute criminal action, gets repetitive real fast. It should wait till you are like level 4 or 5 then make you wanted, not just for robbing 1 stupid store (ofcourse being witnessed by players should make it happen as usual).

I think it's a good anti-farming measure. You can rob some stores but you can't go overboard. Plus, when I played a crim in beta, I found it really fun trying to escape enforcers with my friend with an armored van full of loot.
Being witnessed by both players and civilians makes it happen. Kill all civilians.
[QUOTE=Dashiel;23560586]Being witnessed by both players and civilians makes it happen.

[QUOTE=Dashiel;23560486]Obeya? There's no server with a Y at the start :v:[/QUOTE] Thats the one, don't know why but that Y sticks out in my mind, like a splinter in a finger. But any recommendations on who to pledge too? Or doesn't really matter at this point? can't say i got far in beta.

I wish there was some way as a criminal to negate your being witnessed. If I crash into a NPC driver, can I exchange insurance information and be on my way? If I run over a civilian, can I get out and call an ambulance? If I'm notoriety 4, can I help build an orphanage instead of pay out the ass to drop it?

[QUOTE=Glent;23561422]You wouldn't necessarily be a criminal then, just a civilian.[/QUOTE] Then just fake those actions, like you run over a pedestrian, then you do as if you would call an ambulance, then you kick them when no-one is watching.
[QUOTE=Glent;23561422]You wouldn't necessarily be a criminal then, just a civilian.[/QUOTE] I'd be a civilian if it meant not getting random bounties against enforcers who vastly outclass me.
Map skills + Driving skills + Escape mission = I WIN. Usually. You can get damn far just by making assumptions on a crim's route if your car can't out-speed them. Usually they don't make sudden changes like taking "that right turn" and instead go for the most direct route.
I've had some bad lag recently since the PunkBuster activation. My ping seems to go from a decent 124 like it used to be to suddenly 196, 223, 296, 500 out of no where. Not to mention the servers have this huge lag spike out of the blue.
Yeah I've had a lag spike every 10-20 minutes today, so has everyone else (at least I guess they have from the constant "lagggggg" in district chat.)
is there any criminal facepunch clan? if yes could you invite Psygo?
Thanks for telling us your server. Clans are not universal, they're server dependant.
[QUOTE=Dashiel;23567619]Thanks for telling us your server. Clans are not universal, they're server dependant.[/QUOTE] right, I just bought the game and have been playing beta before, but I do believe I picked patroit 1.
Does anyone on OBEYA EU/ENF want to hook up? It seems like the world is populated by dullards... :(
