Revised Turf System

April 6th, 2015, 3:40 pm

Turf System - Revised
Update 06042015
Past situation
Previously, taking over turfs has been way too easy, and essentially boring if no enemies would appear. Just sitting around for 5 minutes doing nothing or just hiding. In order to overcome this, increase the value of turfs and making it harder to obtain turfs, the turf system has been changed.

How does it work?
As of the latest update (06042015), obtaining turfs has been changed. Instead of standing around, you have to move around. To take over a turf, you still need 5 members. The more members you have, the faster you will obtain a turf.

You no longer need to stand around closely next to each other but you only have to be in the turf.

To initiate a turf takeover, one person of the faction has to use the command /turf and then select Initiate takeover.
If there are at least 5 faction members in this turf, the turf takeover will begin.

There are always at least 25 checkpoints to visit. In case there are 5 members in this turf takeover, every member will have to visit 5 checkpoints. You always have exactly 45 seconds to visit the checkpoint - else the takeover will fail. Even if just one member fails to visit the checkpoint in time, the takeover will fail too.

The more businesses there are in a turf, the more it is worth, thus the more checkpoints you need to visit. If there are 20 businesses in the turf, you will need to visit a total of 25 + 20 checkpoints. That's 45 checkpoints for 5 players, meaning every player needs to visit 9 checkpoints and always has 45 seconds to do so.

Practical examples
Corleone wants to take over the Mall turf. The Mall turf has a lot of businesses, 32 to be exact. The base is 25 checkpoints, plus 32 checkpoints because there are 32 businesses. There are 57 checkpoints to visit in total.

Because Corleone is clever, they have brought 11 members into the turf to help.
This result is that every member only has to visit 57 / 11 = 6 checkpoints.

If all of the 11 members manage to go through the 6 checkpoints in 6*45 = 270 seconds (4.5 minutes), the turf takeover will succeed.

Corleone has this this unlucky member called Michael Corleone, the current turf owners saw him visiting various businesses; thus he has been shot down by the enemy - which results in Michael failing to visit his checkpoint within the 45 second mark. The turf takeover has failed because only one out of the 11 members failed to visit their turf.

Hint
In some cases it might be smarter to use a smaller amount of members in a turf takeover rather than many. This reduces the risk of being killed and the takeover failing. The disadvantage of this is that the few members have to visit much more checkpoints.

It's up to you what you think is the more clever approach.

5 guys, random skins, names off, alone driving around... How can be found by opposite faction other than using nametag?

This may lead to
"Oh, that guy is driving an nrg"
** PRAA PRAA PRAA **
** Random civilian shot down **

How is someone supposed to stay alive while going solo into businesses? Everyone will camp outside businesses and kill, thus easily keeping their turf. This makes it virtually impossible to take a turf, because seven people have to enter businesses while thirty others already wait at the businesses to easily kill them off and win the fight.

Another issue are the reports; how do we know who to shoot when a turftakeover is initiated, especially if they use a non-reserved skin to take the turf? How do you even find out who the enemy is if they've got name off.

Everyone should be forced to use reserved skins during turftakeovers to avoid useless reports, otherwise everyone inside the turf becomes a legitimate target as you can't make up who is going for a biz or not.

What about notoriety? Since its virtually impossible to take turf now, there shouldn't be any.

Why use Corleone as example? Why not Tattaglia? Is biased?
