Hi Law, not sure if you read the topic about the New Jail I ever so kindly wrote, but in the replies I actually included specific reasons as to why this was implemented within the new jail. Put down your controller for a second and pause mario and allow me to explain. As someone has stated before on this topic, the last jail was just one corridor of criminals and cops shooting at each other. If you managed to get past, it'd be luck. We don't want that anymore, we want to see skill and strategy. As you know, jails aren't easy to break into. But, with team (and maybe a brain) you'd be able to get in and out easy. I understand that it might be hard, but if you were to gather a whole group of criminals you would easily take it over. When it first went live, cops were camping in the control room and criminals were trying to take over. Within a couple minutes, as I spectated, criminals easily outsmarted them and were able to take over. Regarding the vent taking your HP, we put this within the jail to prevent people from going afk or blocking the vent to either avoid arrest or to just be a dick. Taking your HP would allow afk people to die and be put back into your cell. This also means that the efforts of the person 'cracking' the vent so to say, wouldn't be a waste with someone just standing in the middle and blocking the whole system. You might see this as unfair, but rather having someone in mainchat asking an admin to slap someone for blocking the vent, we had it take your health instead. There are two ways to break out, by the red doors or by the vent. The vent is the new way to break out and it would be riskier than using the red doors. This new jail is on an probationary period and will be adjusted in the coming month. Hearing feedback always helps us with improving the jail and some suggestions we've had, (like faster gates and doors) will be put within the new Jail once players have played around with it. Despite hearing your 'feedback' rushing to remove it only shows the lack of efforts you've given it to try and adjust. We knew that people would be unhappy, hence why we asked for feedback. We will not be removing the new jail and putting back in the old one. We will listen to what you have to say and we will change what you feel should be changed.
Oh! and if you struggle with this new jail, this might help.
I'm expecting 8/8 Law.
