Gang rivalries restrictions?
« on: May 12, 2016, 06:25:53 AM »
I was wondering if there is gonna be any restrictions to gangs that are maxed out rivaling lvl 1 gangs to farm points was gonna be a thing again.

I had an idea maybe all gang member levels could be pooled and whatever number you get, you can only rival gangs that are 3/4 or higher your pool.

*INCOMING MATH/GEOMETRY/WHATEVER
Ex: Gang A                            Gang B
 mem 1: lvl 25                Mem 1: lvl 60
 mem 2: lvl 10                Mem 2: lvl 40
 mem 3: lvl 15                Mem 3: lvl 45
 Pow level = 50              Pow level = 145
     Gang B cant rival A but A can rival B (If they're that stupid)


Ex 2: Gang C                        Gang D
 Mem 1: lvl 30                  Mem 1: 50
 Mem 2: lvl 30                  Mem 2: 30
mem 3: lvl 30                   Mem 3: 40
Pow lvl: 90                       Pow lvl: 120

Gang C and D Can rival each other
Just an idea.

I really like this, I am reworking rivalry in a whole and will take this into consideration when we have it remade!

Great idea IMO, might need a little more to take level into account, but ideas are ideas, and they fuel the fire of creativity and the imagination.

Just an idea.

The problem with this idea is that levels don't necessarily dictate people's gear and skill, while skill would be very hard to measure gear however isn't. Make a hidden gear score rating, example:

Gang Level 1
Guy 1 Level 1 lvl 2 upgrade in helm
Guy 2 Level 5 3 level 1 upgrades in gear

Total Level = 10

Gang2
Guy 3 Level 10 no upg
Guy 4 Level 10 full lvl 6s in chest

Total Level = 68

Gang3
Guy 1 level 1 with 2 lvl 3s in gun
Guy 2 level 3 no upg
Guy 3 level 2 1 lvl 1 upg

Total level = 12

Gangs 1 and 3 are within 30% of each other so they can rival.

BigSmeag, Love the idea, but why keep it hidden? It will be a secondary level system based off gear alone. Just like in most MMOs it gives players more playthrough to try and get the best gear or min/max the gear.

Good idea in theory, But I guess what Smeag is trying to say that level =/= strength, as a level 30 with level 6's could kill a level 99, so I guess you could implement a gear score very much like in WoW where each item has a Item level.
Let say;
gangland armor = 5 points
Riot armor = 10 points
Scouting armor = 15
tactical armor = 20 points
commander armor = 25 points
Titan armor = 30 points

Standard = 1 point extra
Rare = 2 points extra
unique = 3 points extra
Elite = 4 points extra
Epic = 5 points extra

and each level 1 upgrade is 1 point, level 2 is 2 points, and so on.

So you could have an elite kevlar chest and 7 level 4's in it and it would amount to 42 gear score.

This helps involve both the level and gear.

This is obviously a lot of work to do so wont be expect on release but I think this would be optimal instead of basing on just level solely.

Sounds like a fabulous addition, but the numbers are too small, so there is a lot less flexibility, you're either X or Y. Instead of ½X and 1½Y.

Because if you find the broken synergies IE speeds aren't worth the points then none will use speeds for the sake of saving points, I guess you have a good point either way its good.

Also there needs to be prevention's to stop gang member to all take off their gear to get a lower score rival someone and put it back on.

EDIT: Merged your posts. Try not to double post next time :D

Well the "Gear Score" won't have any affect on things. Just a baseless Level System, but on gear. Just shows what level of their gear and that's pretty much it.

I actually really like the idea, basically like The Division but having it showed to us would be pretty sweet imo.
