    If you want to try to get the dirty bomb to do more damage try making a suggestion in the suggestions forum, but be specific so people know what you what from it.

    †I don't mean to be rude but I don't know how you interpreted this as a suggestion. xD

    This is a discussion about whether you think DBs are worth the billions that have to be spent blowing them up and if you think people should get more return for their VERY hard earned cash.†

    I know the DBs should be for the elite. I'm asking is it really worth spending billions for making the login screen look a bit different for a little while. The honor bars and merits just don't seem worth it tbh.

    You forget that at a point people with billions have nothing else to spend it on, better to cause a bit of drama than sit there looking a zeros build up†in your bank account that are doing nothing. No one who can afford it has ever contemplated whether it was worth it, they just did it because it was fun to watch Torn go haywire for a while

    Whats the point in working at all towards a faction if someone can undo all of it by spending a couple of bill?
    DBs can wipe factions, and have in the past, but it takes alot more than just dropping the bomb to make sure that happens.
    With propper planning and effort its still possible to wipe out the steadfast 10 faction you hate so much, what more do you want?

    Now a days it is practically impossible to wipe out a faction even using dirty bombs lol sure Vulpes were dropped to zero respect at one point and they managed to get their respect back to 100 before the one hour time limit ran out, dirty bombs are nothing more than a way for people who drop them to make the statement "I am considerably richer than you"

    How many factions were wiped out and how many bombs were dropped total then?
    One or 2 factions in like 10 years is not so much fun tbh. For the time it takes a person to make the money build it and drop it, it just does not balance out at all. The way it is now is just a way to piss billions down the drain.

    But that's all they are suppose to be, a way to piss billions down the drain and be able to laugh (and probably gloat a little) when it is done, back in the day when factions could be destroyed there was a different breed of Torn player who would get over it if it happened and just move on but now a days everyone bitches if they lose even a dollar so a faction loss would have endless bitching on the forums. I remember a time when I use to just buy factions off noobs just to destroy them because their constant moaning in the hosp shout box about getting hosped because they declared war on JFK use to get on my tits lol

    You're beating a dead horse on the cusp of changes to come.† For all anyone knows in the future a DB may free a factions territory up for any other faction to take over.

    I can think of five factions destroyed by DBs, though I wasn't here for all of them. Ched's test faction, Youngblaze's bank, Xerxe's faction, Helvete, and one of the admins banks. The DB spree a little while ago was mIsch3vo's (sp?) work; he's the one who destroyed a cheaters faction-- and nuked SA twice if I recall correctly. Other factions, such as MMCP (no offense David) and Calculating, were never really at risk in the first place.

    DBs are essentially too well known to be faction killers anymore, unless there's only one member who can be caught off guard, as was the case with Helvette.

    They are however a great way to make a name for yourself. And, in the case of Vulpes, to scare the living hell out of a few people.

    DBs are way to dull now.† Its why you have yet to see me drop another one.
    Should they do more damage, probably.† Will they ever?† No.

    Personally I just want the ability to drop a DB on something other then a faction.† Maybe the bank or rehab or a racetrack!† That could be a lot more fun

    Easy solution, make the respect loss less, say around 5k and make it disable all faction specials for 1 month.†

    Actually let me also rant about this crap about people working hard to build up factions.
    WHAT UTTER CRAP.

    I am sorry most of these factions now exist in the safe era of factions where there has never been any threat to being destroyed.† Where most factions have simply harvested respect like people harvested money in previous stock market guises.
    Almost all wars factions have these days are non events.† Its simply one strong faction picking on a dozen easy targets so they can run 100 man chains one after another with zero effort.

    Factions are nothing more then Torn's equivalent of tea parties.† A place for people to get together and boast about who has the biggest.....
    Hell some of these factions are nothing more then a money making opportunity now!†

    Other then the old factions which survived the era when you can wipe out factions in warring, of which there are very few left.† No other faction has ever worked hard.† They have had a simple ride and simply grown if the faction leader is rich or a big name.

    DB's are a pain in the ass Nothing like not being able to do anything for 24 hours or so. Its a items that pretty much shuts down a text based game. It should be the most expensive thing in the game, I see no reason to change the requirements or costs in building one or the DMG done by setting it of.†

    Imagine if it were easier to build? The game already has enough going on daily who wants more of these things in the game? Not me!

    When it comes to dirty bombs then nobody has ever been able to successfully communicate the emotions of the entire community as successfully as Cynic.....that whole DP scenario was a dark time of Torns history and Cynic was the hero of the day. I would have like to have worded it more eloquently but the fact remains that one DB stands head and shoulders above all others and Cynic dropped it on Cheds test faction. RIP
    for those about to rock........
