Its all about the eye of the beholder, some people see sleepers as a good thing and some see it as a bad thing.
Personally I see what they’re trying to do but, I don’t agree with the execution. Just saying, “oh hey guess what you can never go back to real life because if you do, your about as vulnerable as an ant crawling alongside a busy sidewalk” That is just plain stupid in my opinion.
duke2’s plan is a little bit better but still 5 hours is a long time, over the duration of playing the game for about 6 hours one time, we had people try and raid us more that 4-5 times. So that would mean my character would be there just waiting to get killed all because I had to go to work…
Sadly I don’t think this “Sleeper” thing is the way to go about it at all, I would think a more realistic approach would be to use a combat timer (yes like DayZ, I said it) therefore you couldn’t run behind a hill and exit the game while getting shot at, or you would loose everything. I know that doesnt stop someone who hasnt been in combat for awhile to pack up all his stuff before he longs out, but the whole “Sleeper” thing is just not the way to go about it
