Hell no lol, you criminals get advantages and the only one good thing we have you cry about it? Piss off..
Flashbangs, SWAT Tanks that throws water and takes 3 to 4 RPG Shots to be blown, a taser that has a long range, stingers, road blocks, being able to switch from rubber pellets to real ammo by just pressing ALT, kill arrest, spray cans, among other things.
The "advantages" criminal has: Selling drugs, working under teamwork. The other things we make "advantage of" is things that everyone can use.
It gets me every time people complain about anyone having a "too op" thing, when the problem is on them technically. I do not complain at all about the things the cop side has, but when something is broken, then it MUST be looked into, and not be discard with the cheap excuse of "yOu GoT tOo MaNy AdVaNtAgEs".
You'd be amazed of how few smart people I've seen using a SWAT tank which can end a SR by him and two more officers, but then criminals are the one OP because they actually work as a team. It feels like you're getting rewarded only because you're not able to play as a team, and eventhough people usually don't complain about it, if you need more help to arrest a couple of crims, then so be it, but don't come then complaining about problems that doesn't exist, and discard things that are actually game broken because the other side is "broke".
Go out of that biased bubble a lot of people is in, take the time to walk in another guy shoes. I like to play both crim and cop and I know the trouble every team has, and the main trouble with cop side is you're not working as a team at all.
