everyone including their dog knows that people log in for the community and the social aspect of it. no one in the right mind sits here and hustles money in the year almost 2020.
everyone has everything, and there is no motivation other than the old friends on the server to log in for.
if the economy was to undergo a hard reset.. and every single job adjusted accordingly.. and a realistic tax system.. and ways to flush out money properly, so we don't end up with inflation again.. aaaand lastly everyone would start from 0 - i could see this work. but its hard.
now - you would log in for the old friends on the server... and have additional motivation to play because you don't have anything. i get that some people may get the idea that, well if you remove all my stuff it's going to demotivate players, but i think you underestimate the competition aspect this would bring.
who gets the first super gt with the adjusted economy? who gets to be the first millionare, who gets the expensive props. which gang/squad is the richest? it would be crazy to finally see some point in playing again.
but this 'economy reset' idea has been on the table for eons already, and i seriously doubt anything would happen with it. bone has already been in on this for a long time aswell, and he put it nicely that it takes a lot of effort and time to do this major change.
