Prevent PBRs during GBRs

  • The Problem

    With the current BR system, criminals can start Public BRs when there are 13 or more criminals/gang members in the bank. PBRs can, therefore, be triggered while gangs are cracking the first door; which ruins the gang's BR. All it takes is for a criminal to run into the marker and press 'h', hence it is difficult for gangs to prevent this from occurring. A lot of new players who do this are unaware that a GBR is about to take place, and think everyone is in the bank for a PBR - so although it is frustrating when this happens, not all players who do it do it maliciously. After the GBR is ruined, it often leads to gang members leaving the bank to go to an alternative bank, which tends to lead to an unsuccessful PBR. Over the past three days, I have experienced this twice.

    The simplest solution is:

    • In order to do a Public BR, at least 5 criminals must stand in the PBR marker.

    Other solutions:

    • If a gang member is making contact with the first door marker, a public BR cannot be started - this would not completely solve the problem all the time.
    • When gangs go for the first door, there is an option to reserve the BR for that gang for a specific time. There should also be a cooldown, so gangs cannot reserve the bank indefinitely. This would also prevent gangs from hijacking BRs.

    Let me know what you think.

  • Or simply if someone starts a PBR while trying to GBR let him do it, get the money and wait few minutes to do the GBR, simple right ?

    No

  • In my opinion a better solution to this would be : In order to do a PBR all 13 criminals at the bank must press H .
    And yes it is very annoying when some idiot starts a pbr while a gang is doing a gbr

  • "Other solutions: - If a gang member is making contact with the first door marker, a public BR cannot be started - this would not completely solve the problem"
    I disagree. While an official gang member gets in the 1st door marker, the PBR one should disappear. That would solve the problem for good.

    But you can say "Oh but some random ass nigga will just press it before the cracker gets to the marker." - You, sir, are right, kind of. Just send the cracker first and let him hold the marker for a hand full of seconds. And you reply "but that's against the rules." - Oh god, you're right again but only if you stay afk there or you're only there to stop another gang, that has all of their members inside the bank while you are waiting for yours, to BR.

    Holding the marker to prevent some random ass noob to start a PBR for a couple seconds ain't that big of a deal, in my opinion. In fact by the time you finish cracking the code your gang is probably inside the bank already.

  • Remove PBRs for good. #MakeBRsGreatAgain

  • Is this a relevant issue though?

    Yes

    Some random criminals or people who likes to troll starts a public bank robbery when a gang tries to rob it. It is an issue for all the current offical gangs.
