Okay look. I may not be as respected in the community as I used to be, but don't let our relationship blindside you from the truth (whether you like that truth or not).

First off let me point out the fact that this is a SantosRP server! SantosRP was originally intended for people who enjoy SeriousRP to have a place to do so. SeriousRP is basically gaining the persona of a made up character and doing/acting in character as you would in real life. However the server has slipped so far from the original base game mode and it is becoming hard for people to differentiate the server from SantosRP and DarkRP. Because there have been many changes in the server (i.e player count increasing dramatically, economy-boosting dramatically, items boosting dramatically) many updates have been set in place to try and balance it out. However, all this is doing is making the other side unbalanced again and we're back to the start.

GGS has fallen very far from the SantosRP gamemode. No one SeriousRP's anymore, and when they do it's ended shortly by the ISISRP that is currently dominating the server. Nothing means anything. So many aspects of the server are based around SantosRP (everyday RP) and not suited for the state of the economy. The price of nearly everything is suited to fit someone with a total worth of around $200k. That could buy you a nice car, pay for a house and a large supply of items from best field. However because most people have easily over $1mil, everything means shit. People drive around in cars worth $10mil with backpacks worth $20mil 1 day then $1mil the next. I think all prices should be upped to better suit the economy and then slowly raised as people start losing money. Another way this would benefit the server is people who are losing money would have to start working to gain it back. This opens the server up to many RP opportunities because people can RP as a job, they can make drugs witht their friends for hours, or they could get on cop and earn money fighting crime. I remember having to work for money and spending hours upon hours grinding to get just $100k. Now I see people giving away millions without a care in the world. There's to much money in the economy for how little money can be taken out. Cops used to be feared. If you saw a cop rock up to your base you would be shitting yourself. Now all I see are cops getting 4 v 9 (small amount of cops vs large sum of gang members). The server is messy. Cars get ditched in the middle of the road, cars are on footpaths blown up because people don't give a shit how they drive. Staff are hardly doing anything to enforce the RP. Yeah props to the staff that enforce rules, but you need to be pulling people up who aren't RP'ing. I get this sounds weird to many of you, and that's because GangwarRP is all you've ever known and grown up in. BUT the server wasn't intended for this, shouldn't be this, and needs to be better. Please help the serversRP by lessening the fuck fest and upping the role playing, thanks.

I would suggest an economy wipe, but Heavy Bob hates people suggesting that.

However, it would completely benefit the server because things would be valued again.

I do miss the days of gang members thinking if it's worth fighting the cops, not always looking for a fight with them.

People used to give a shit about not losing their guns, cars and money.

If this happens I'll enjoy playing ggs again and so will a lot of people.

Well spoken Jaron. People now seek out fights with police because they have nothing better to do. We used to appreciate the cops and would do everything in our power to avoid them. Materials used to mean things, but now nothing means anything, not even peoples lives.

People invest so much money in cars and now cars can't be taken away. They mean nothing and people just leave cars worth $10mil sitting around the streets doing nothing. The chop shop was a great way to take money from the server.

I think you've disregarded many of the changes we've put in and provided solutions we're already doing. Locking thread to avoid drama.
