Hi,

I'm new to TC and I have some questions that aren't answered in the FAQ.

- When is a good time to jo;in a faction? I'm quite new so I was going to wait.
- What is the best way to spend my merit points? I only got one but I was wondering if I should spend it on weapons upgrades.
- How do I find a good job with a company? My stats are still quite low, but I want to jo;in a company to learn and to increase my stats faster than now, in a starter job.

Thanks anyway!

stay in the army, use your points to get to the next "level" and use them to boost your battle stats. or alternatively, work on getting into Medical, and getting brain surgeon, so you can revive.

using merits comes down to what you want to do. do you want to war? and attack people? do you want to be a mugger? whats motivating you? use that to decide.


and factions? the more stats, the better chance you have. i wouldnt look at jo;ining a faction until you have 500k total stats tbh (;and even that is quite low); but only if you can handle the time in hospital.

Using your Samurai Sword you hit alchemy in the left shoulder for 64030 damage

You Lost to alchemy
Totally worth it.

-I wouldn't recommend jo;ining a faction at all until you are 14 days old. In the first 14 days you will have 'new player protection', this means that you can't be attacked by older players. If you jo;in a faction in the first 14 days, you will lose this new player protection.

-It depends on your playing style really. If you plan to attack a lot, I would recommend to spend your merits on life points and critical hit rate. If you want to make some cash, you can spend them on upgrades like banking or awareness.

-With low working stats, don't expect the best job... If you want to work in a Company, it's probably best to have a look in the Company forums to see who are hiring and what they can pay you. Also, check out this page to see what job specials you like:;

My thoughts to your questions:;

- What HenkiePuk said
- Use it when you know more about the game, no biggie IMO, you can always reset merits.
- I'd go for starter jobs for merits and build working stats at the same time.

Well i wouldnt recomend you jo;ining a faction even after the 14 days. Unless ofcourse it has great specials and does not require that much atacking.
As for the merits, you dont need to use them right when you get them, if you cant see any advantage now, hold them for a while to see how your evolution plays out, and decided then.
Finaly, the company, many companies hire regardless the working stats, o got quite a few invites when i first started. If you are active, try to make a deal with a company owner for daily trains, even if it costs you on your income from the job. you you get a "kind enough" director, you can get working stats way faster then in a starters job.

Nope.
One education at a time, one company at a time, one faction at a time and unfortunately, one partner at a time.

- dont jo;in any faction until level 15, so you can traveling/escape when faction wars go bad.
- dont spend it on anything until you know how the game works.
- i prefer starter jobs than company.

Now that i'm older, i thought it was great that i seemed to have more patience.

turns out i just don't give a shit.

To increase my nerve bar I have to do crimes but do I also get points if my crime fails (;got away without the flowers or something like that); or do I only get points for my nerve bar if my crime is succesful?

Greed result = You win crime xp
Brown result = you dont win or lose crime xp
Red result = you lose crime xp

You can also raise your nerve bar by busting people out of jail (;but you spend energy doing so, so i wouldnt recomend it);
