NOTE: We are now for all Consoles!
The following was written some time ago, if you want to see how far we have come check out the growing Mercanti Youtube playlist: http://youtu.be/6dGm...oxI_qOyq-0pFfHH
I have really been enjoying my sessions lately, im rank 75 and i mostly play Free-Roam on PS3 and got bored with the casual mayhem after a while. So i have been developing with some friends a realistic way to play our online sessions. We are interacting with civilians and pedestrians.
To better illustrate i will give some examples of the play style through some recent activities we did:
Tonight we Whacked a dealer who was operating outside a business we extort. We had a getaway car stolen from an empty car park ready which we later ditched.
We took care of our Escort service by driving around going up to our "employees" and walking into them until they reacted, if they ran we chased them down, if they walked it meant we got our money and they were dismissed..
We collected our protection money from the Vespucci beach vendors.. we had to destroy one Burger stall as the owner refused to pay, most walked away (again, meaning they complied with our demands).
We bought some "product" from the Families and sold it to the Vagos, One of them pulled a gun when we tried to offer him so we sold it to another guy a bit later.
We pulled off a Gang Hit on the Ballas and escaped in our getaway vehicle to the pass under the bridge. Here we doused the car in gasoline and jumped into my Crew vehicle leaving behind a pile of burning evidence. We celebrated the hit at the Club with some Whiskey.
We are able to do this with a few self imposed rules such as destroying or ditching a vehicle that the police have seen after a crime, and a list of jobs and events that i created such as, Pimping, Unions, Contracts, Rivals, Protection rackets, drug dealing, murder etc.. Most involve some fairly basic mechanics but are really enjoyable if you want to delve deeper into the realism and role-play.. We play like its a Organized Crime Simulator.
If your interested go to our dedicated Crew Website. Feel free to get intouch with me if this interests you and you want to play some sessions with us this way.
I hope you enjoy the content.
