I did the no cops glitch for a while. It was boring IMO. I missed them. Just take away cop shotguns.
Here's a couple more..
I like the cops. No cops would be boring. They add a sense of danger and kinda bring the game alive.
I would rather play with or against a "tryhard" rather than someone not trying at all. (For the most part of course, some players can be overwhelming and I'm not including passive/EWO abusers in this statement.)
I'd much rather that they just tweak their behavior. At 1 star they should not shoot at you, just chase. At 2 stars they should rarely shoot. I'm OK with how they act at 3+ stars. But also, it should be slightly harder to get a wanted level, and there should be a lot less of random incidents where you shoot one person in the middle of nowhere and get stars from it. It's not the existence of cops that bothers me, it's the constant mindless aggression and the fact that you can't do any-damn-thing at all without getting a wanted level.
I would accept this as well. Any nerf would be helpful for ground players such as myself.
