Nah. There was a week where all of us did feds like 4 days in a row. Some days we had 6 or 7 people and would fend off cops for several waves. Then when we thought we might lose, we left. Almost no one got caught in all of those feds we did. We had a lot of fun, especially when they used their striders and hunters against us and we still fended them off. People just need to stop being pussies and worrying about losing a fight or two. That happens. You don't see sports teams cancel a game cause they have a couple more people injured than the other team. No, they fight through the hard fight. I was on cop, and my gang fled in some quilins and was tailed the whole way by a scout plane. We never caught any of them cause they were smart about it and kept running. Then they hid from us and got picked up in a heli and left. No one got tazed, and no cops died, but it was a solid 20-25 minute chase. I had fun trying to catch them, and i bet it was fun for them. 

 

People just need to be smarter with their fights and not be pussies. So what they have 2-3 more people, if you play smart and work together, you can easily win fights.

The biggest issue right now with fighting ( that's fighting anyone anywhere ) is the texture bug issue! I hate to say it but I've only ever got it on Olympus and can't understand why? I play KOH & WASTELAND and never got a single texture bug and they have textured vehicles the lot! That what makes me not want to fight, the chance of going CQC with someone and getting the bug just before!? 

We did a fed a week ago 10 of us doing it and I think like 10+ cops 6 of us got texture bugged 4 times throughout the whole event! And it caused us to loose out on a big bust ( 460 gold bars!!! ) we only got just over 300 out. 

When that texture shit happens regularly that would put anyone off fighting!!

Part of the issue with gangs is the fact that Gang A with 4 members on has no incentive to fight Gang B with 12 members on. Unless your gang is a bit zergy, you generally are outnumbered so there's no point they feel. 

Personally I know myself and the guys I play with don't mind, makes it a fun challenge.

 

So....smaller gang size limits? I don't really like the idea myself but I guess it'd put things on a more level playing field.

@RogueMK I get texture bugged all the time at the Fed. Especially  if I'm near gate 1 and 2 sandbags

It's not my fault you count as two people, in size not skill.

Pretty solid answer tbh. When all these gangs do that shit honestly, I tend to say we're not going to bother with them. It's annoying.

Take this video for example: 
https://youtu.be/3NYcaFZxCjU?t=1m37s

VX is basically talking mad shit. We're in the middle of a fight and they non-stop spam messages and say shit in chat. This fight was 10x better and more worth it in our opinion compared to going to a cartel and sitting on a rock for 15 minutes.

that video is 10/10 memes considering Ms. Smiths 4th grade special ed class is better than VX

Remove gate 4 at the fed. 

+1 this , we should have buffs to rebel side a bit , even if saying we already have 7.62 , its kinda hard when cops outnumber you 2:1

And when I say buffs im not saying big stuff , like small things could equal things

we need to bring fatal back :D

I will be extremely disappointed in you if you leave me with THEM

Remove CSAT fatigues and we will be set to go.

There are several occasions in which I can recall wankers on cartel caps tanking four, maybe more 7.62shots resulting in me trading with set wanker.Personally I'm not to fond of paying 130k for a gun which unless the opposing side is one tapped and or at close range will take a couple shots then just go heal and be set. This creates a fight where the only way to win is to get a tap which personally makes me question whether I wish to fight or not.

What exactly would you buff? Rebels already overpower 95% of cops. the other 5% are equal pretty much.

Arma is a game of advantages, if you're outnumbered it should be hard, that's one less advantage you have. You then have to make up for it by playing smarter and more tactically. 

 

It's the same with cops, their gear isn't as good so they have to play more tactically since 7.62 will win every time otherwise in a spray and pray match.

the only reason we talking shit is to get people to come to cartel, at least usually

What's funny to me is the fact that all the big gangs do is fight cartels and do Feds to the point where it's not even fun anymore, then they wonder why the server is getting stale. When people say that Olympus is dying, it's either because they're stuck doing the same shit everyday, or that nowadays it's nearly impossible to get anywhere on this server if you aren't part of some highly-skilled gang. I feel that at the very least, a good place to start is adding more fresh content. The last biggest update we've had was adding Blackwater, which is basically just a different variation of the fed, and most of the new donation rewards haven't been anything too big. 

What's even more annoying is some people have some pretty amazing ideas for things we could add to the server, but if it's in any way related to Asylum, people talk shit. The hilarious thing is that the more I see people make some unoriginal joke about how a certain feature is on Asylum, it makes me want to play that server more.

Normally the only gangs that ever do feds are huge skilled gangs, and they have both the money to afford losing a load-out and the skill to be confident in the fact that they won't, so I seriously don't think that's the issue.

You should know that won't work on us. We don't organize fights and we don't get baited into them like we've got something to prove.

Honestly I rarely see feds done. I think for the strictly cartel focused gangs new cartels would help them. As for others, I agree another event type thing might help pique interest. One thing I will say is asylums map looks so aidsy now, so as long as it doesn't turn out like that here I'm down.

Yeah that's the only turn-off about that whole server. The fact that since there's so many custom buildings and props they added in the mission file, it legit looks like 30% of the map is made of plastic.

What's more interesting is the fact that I don't really see much interest that could be drawn in more event types that are made to start firefights between gangs. I honestly see more interest in rp-oriented features:
Manufactucturing rifles at the Black Market (Or being able to sell Blackwater weapons and gear at the Rebel Outpost rather than having bids on the forums)
Some form of a government established
The News Team. NEWS TEEEEEAM PLEASE

I made a whole thread about a bunch of ideas I've had for the server while the November Donation was still being determined, but it's so far back I don't know if I could still find it. If even one of those things were added, I'd be super hyped.

Totally down for news team. And if we added a government system that'd be dope. A game I used to play ( called Face of Mankimd) had a player controlled government  (senate and all), obviously wouldn't be that in depth, but you could have president/vice president (could get perks like discounts on all legal items, and even the 1 pardon thing from asylum) and you could even have mayors of each major town and they get discounts in their town on stuff or access to pilot helmets or something. Make them get some sort of RP-like influence. Having to have town hall meetings which means you'd have to have either cop security or hire/have private security (i.e. other civs), in case people tried to "overthrow the goverment" or kill public officials or things like that. I dunno, just spitballin here.

Yeah. I did find the thread I created, and I also suggested bringing back the Police Checkpoints and adding some kind of stock market. I was also just spitballing ideas, but the only one I think I'd really enjoy and would be ez to add is bringing back the checkpoints. Maybe we could make the storage system for vehicles more in-depth to allow smuggling items past checkpoints, or maybe even bribing police. Out of all the times I've passed that Kavela Northbound checkpoint, I've only seen cops there twice. Once when I was coming back from an Oil run, and when I sat there robbing people and getting the cop's attention.

Of all people I wouldn't expect you to talk about someone else not doing Cartels.
