I dont support witnessing players who are farming money in or LTL weapons. I do not need those things to make factions unique, and if you added them to both factions it wouldnt really matter since you would be ruining the story that pretty much no one cares about. Clothes to seperate us and and some unique mission parts for now are enough, since we wont see any improvement or new modes for APB anyways that could immerse you more into being a criminal or enforcer.
First thing, about LTL weapons, they are enforcer only as we already know. People would say switch to enforcers to play them, but that would give you extra weapons and people playing on crim still wont have it, its still unfair, its just that you are on the lucky side of coin now. My point is, one side (enfos) will always be more powerful in the match since they have access to unique LTL weaponry, and its not fair since crims dont have access to it, you wont be able to play LTL vs LTL matches or "giving someone taste of their own medicine" which players often use to measure their skill and counter guns in missions. Also you wont be able to play against enforcer exclusive clans, people who play only one faction (i play only crim, and there are some players i really hate and would love to kill them with LTL).
LTL weapons are supposed to be a reason for people to join enforcers, but they wouldn't be there if crims didn't have ramming. Another unfair thing about these is massive cheese combos with these weapons, perc + stabba, PIG is pretty much a shotgun pistol that is harder to use, stun OPGL... And why do even silenced nano and perc deal stun damage.
Since enfos have LTL weapons, crims have ramming. BUT, ramming isnt a thing you would do in a middle of match, ramming isnt a weapon you can use in a mission to kill someone, ramming is even dangerous because you can lose all the money to one cheap enfo trick in a second. Ramming is just a way of earning money, which can be transfered to your other character (although there is a tax). Although people claim that this game isnt competitive, people made their rules and what is considered honorable and what not, and its obvious that LTL are giving enforcers more weapons to play with.
But in ramming, people are merciless here, enfos rush in with parties, car bombs, percs, smgs, and if you are witnessed, you are most likely not going to escape. Also it is alot, ALOT harder to play under pressure that you can lose the money you farmed for hour(s), and you will be very, very mad and disappointed if you do. For enforcers it will only take a minute or two to get this money from witnessing, and 5 minutes or less to scout the whole map in search of farmers. It is ironic, because game portrays criminals as stealing money, but it is actually players who play as enforcers that are literally stealing, yes, you are literally stealing money someone spent hours to earn. And this is supposed to be some kind of high risk, high reward system, which is i guess somewhat, just somewhat fine compared to other games, BUT
Think for a moment which players are actually ramming? It is those people who cant afford to get guns and newbies who are trying to understand how the game is working. People who are trying to get money for legendaries so they can scale up to others' gear in missions. People who get few days of premium from event and spend their time ramming whole day trying to get some money. When i joined almost 3 years ago i remember taking 10 premium + kraken code, and farming really really hard those days. I managed to earn around a million and get items which kept me playing, otherwise i would quit. You will rarely see a player who has armas items and weapons trying to ram in order to earn money. They can easily get it from RMT and sending gifts, or for some who dont mind spending money or gamblers via JMBs, and premium gives you steady earnings from missions and fight club anyways...
