Robbery Limit — Poll

Post by Surreal » Sun Feb 18, 2018 8:28 am

This has been brought up time and time again as a server discussion or a suggestion.

What do you think of the server's robbery limit? Should it stay the same? Should it be increased? Why?

Discuss, so this topic can be brought to a close once and for all.

Feedback will be used to make a final decision.

Robbery is already a cancerous experience 9/10 times. Increasing the amount taken from you would just make it worse, I think, and would probably encourage more people to go around /mask'd up robbing everything in sight with little more roleplay than "down!" and /frisk.

I agree with E. Barrera. Keep the limit the same or lower it.

The number of robberies is way too big right now in my eyes while having the limit at $500, imagine if the limit got increased. Most of the current robberies don't even get role-played as good as they're supposed to be, most of them are just someone aiming a gun at you and going into /b ''don't stall'' when the victim is actually trying to role-play.

I'm totally against increasing the limit with the current level of RP around robberies and with the current number of robberies, if the limit is going to be increased then more rules around robbery would be needed.

Bring it back to 5K imo. I've yet to be robbed for a few years now I don't see the issues. Robbery crews can be handled via reports.

If you lower it or keep it the same it's not like it's going to decrease robberies either. People mainly rob for firearms anyway.

Not worth increasing it, its just gonna increase robberies where people just go around typing "/me takes the money". Players will just do it for the sake of the money and not the RP.

You either leave early as a good roleplayer, or you stay long enough to be labelled as a dmer.

Maybe an alternative rule should be proposed to intensify the repercussions of a robbery, raise the rewards but also the risks. Implications like a character kill or 15+ hours in prison if killed/jailed in an unsuccessful attempt. Imposing rebound from robberies would make people think twice.

Something to make players be thorough and efficient with their roleplay.

Easier said than done. We have administrators who rarely have enough time and evidence to handle deathmatch reports on the spot in-game. There's no motivation to prove yourself on a forum report about a robbery because the situation becomes prolonged and tedious.

Remain the same or increase repercussions. Robberies aren't roleplayed for the sake of roleplay nowadays, it's rushed and unrealistic. People jump out of cars four deep with shotguns, assault rifles, and handguns just to rob a single person for $500.

Increasing the robbery limit will only motivate people to doing anything for THAT BAG. Which in return will increase the unrealistic robberies. So I'm leaning towards remaining the same, or even decreasing it.

If it's increased, alot of people would go for robbing everytime. I'll vouch for 500.

Making it bigger will do nothing but increase the already ridiculous amount of robberies. Keep it the same or even lower it to discourage people from robbing.

Why not make it possible for them to rob everything that you are carrying on you? It'd be the most realistic thing to do, and would force people to actually worry about losing something more than $500, cause it's really nothing.

Nothing wrong with the $500 limit, the way some robberies are conducted is the problem IMO.

Money isn't a huge issue for most people on this server, many people have millions upon millions. I think rules regarding the roleplay with robberies needs to be addressed, but it should be raised to at least 1 thousand, it's literally chump change for 99 percent of the server, and it's not really the main object of the robbery most of the time. I think "robbery crews" needs to be defined and people need to not just namechange and get a pf and say "Chea dog we're lick hittaz now homie, let's go make some money", it's unrealistic and stupid. If not just a reason to go and shoot at cops or get some free shootouts, it's unrealistic and should be outlawed.
