I think the cartels shouldn't have bubbles around them. If you are showing up with a weapon you know what you are doing there, also they could just be sitting outside the bubble and get popped and cry about rdm.

1. sometimes you cant put your hands down.( can put hands up while reviveing then cant put them down )

2. if a player requests medic and a medic leaves and joins medic cant see the request(s)

3. putting your uniform in a vehicle and putting i back on makes it look green. currently for S&R

4. re-log/re-spawning/ makes you loose inv and uniform/ medics dont need bloodbags/reduce the tow hooks to 2 instead of 4

5. no revive animation for revives.

6. lights and sirens sometimes turn off

Just a heads up , when a player gets killed and is in his downed state he can get in cars / helis. Also if you kill them on the cartel it stays contested.

The event is taking weapons away as well. Also, people are getting more and more stuck with their hands up than before. Some people after getting revived come back with their previous load out.

Soooo.... you don't need to request to get revived.. lol I predict APD abuse.. "Revive this person, revive this person"   Ouchies :-\


Very good update though, good work devs ^_^ Lots of updates

I might make a poll about this, but the new dying and revive system is a step backwards. It's first-person, so you can just lie there to look around and tell your friends where the bad guys are, there isn't a timer, it only tells you the nearest medic and how many are on (no distance), you can't type in any chat, and you can't tell if a medic's reviving you or not since there isn't an animation. The old system was fine and we ought to go back to it; it wasn't broken, so it shouldn't have been fixed.

Sorry if I regurgitate any information already said so far, however I TL;DR. Anyways, as most people can agree, the revive system is terrible for three reasons: 1st: If you die, you can't use any chat whatsoever, so you can't tell medic or ask medic any questions which is a serious disadvantage. 2nd: If you die at cartels, you can stay alive there for 20 minutes, preventing any people from capping it. 3rd: As Fat Clemenza said, you can easily look around and ghost anything to gang members. And not to mention all of the glitches involved with this, such as medics being able to revive people by just being in a remote area from the body. [END] The new group creator is great, I love the password thing, now you dont have to unlock and lock a group every time someone wants to join. I am probably forgetting to mention a couple things however I will just post another reply if necessary.
