Busting scripts have gotten out of hand.

Just add a busting cooldown. One bust every five minutes or so.

I'm sure this will get a lot of negativity, but this is one part of the game that is being ruined by scripters.

If you bust more than a few people within a short time you will start failing. Therefore I don't think this is needed. No R.

Agreed. It's well known that more than 3 or 4 busts in a 15 minute period produces almost automatic failure. The most I've ever heard of one person busting in this time frame is 6 people.

I'm also not convinced that the problem with the jail has anything to do with scripts. I think it is entirely more likely that the jail is constantly empty because of the "easy" crimes that don't give jail time, and the rather large pool of people that are trying to bust folks in jail.

Yeah sometimes you go into jail and are out before you can refresh. Some factions must be trying to do PAs.

My best record is 100 people busted in 1 hour 58 minutes. However this was when the jail was considerably more populated. My best bust chain was 15 in a row, but generally I can do 5 - 8 in a row (if I'm working in a law firm at the time).

@OP: The Captcha was added needlessly because of people bitching about 'bust scripts' (while not understanding them properly) so now we have this added annoyance in our face. Why should there be a cooldown now, just because there aren't enough people for you to bust?

Like the Captcha, this cooldown suggestion is a permanent fix for your personal temporary problem. Rated -

So you telling us, there actually is some kind of cooldown implemented since like forever?

Furthermore, I'd just like to add that this suggestion isn't really about 'scripters' like you're pretending. You just want to limit other peoples busting so that there's more choice for you whenever you mosey along to the jail. If I'm willing to expend more effort, time & energy busting people, then I should be allowed to do that. Just because you want to get some busts in at your own leisure doesn't mean I should be restricted in this way.

Stop hiding behind your bullshit "scripters" excuse.

Suck it up, click jail more often and you'll find people to bust. I've gotten 150 in the last week and I"m barely putting any effort into it at all!

Even I can find people to bust, and I can only bust low levels

Agreed with this ^^

@OP go find a hobby
You people bitch and moan about jail being empty and you don't even bust. The fail rate of busting is enough already.

Not quite true...

I tested this earlier today. I popped xanax and used the energy to bust. I managed to do 26 successful busts within 15 min, I had a timer with me. I failed about 40% of my attempts though.

That's really impressive. You had 26 successful busts, or around 11 successful busts in that time frame? Either way it's impressive.

26 succesful busts. I will be more clear with my earlier post. But this is quite easy to do when you have all the busting related perks availivable in the game.


Perks:
- Enough dexterity (about 50k+ should be enough). Dexterity extends the jail time that you can bust, but after a certain point dexterity won't have an effect.

- LAW3102 : Bachelor of Law (+50% bonus to your skill in busting)

- 5*law firm job special (noticeable boost in busting skills). Law firm special, not law starter job. Many still confuses them to each other

- LAW2970 : Social and Economic Law (+10% bonus to your skill in busting)

- LAW1880 : Introduction to Law ( + 5% bonus to your skill in busting)
