@terry said in Public method to check playtime:
Is there any other logical reason than what is below for this suggestion?
Would be useful for gangs/squads , they can use it to check their members activity and their active members hours played
If we're gonna implement such a system, we might perhaps just completely delete the activity requirements... Lolz
The reason playtimes are private is because so that GM's activity requirement doesn't get exposed. If it gets exposed, people will be able to cheat the system easily by getting players who don't really play to AFK the required time and count towards the monthly activity limit, and we will have lots of dead gangs which are, in theory, active. We do already have lots of gangs and as harsh as it sounds, to survive you need actual active players and those who don't sadly should suffer the consequences or we will end up with 50 gangs which will probably ruin the gameplay even more, I'm surprised that no one actually sees that.
I mean it's not rocket science, one can still easily cheat the system if you try so hard, but let's not make it that easy...
So you wanna force people to play a game where you wait 10 minutes for a store rob to get 30k from it or just be afk all day in lvx.
It sounds kinda boring to me.
