    I got this strange error message trying to attack someone in elim in Mexico. Apparently because they had not logged in in over 24 hours, they were unable to be hit?

    If this is a common thing, I think it opens up room for abuse by people who want to take part in elim. They will simply fly overseas somewhere, endure the hits for a day, and then are essentially invulnerable until the end of it. Once it's over they can log back in and get credit for all the work they didn't do.

    They do hurt their team by not playing  and their own growth stalls as they are not online and can't train, travel, do crimes etc. Also it's been a thing for several years now and hasn't been a problem as far as I know.

    • Players whose last action is greater than 24 hours ago cannot be attacked while they are in another country unless required by a mission.

    Seems like the almighty chedburn should allow hits on those abroad for more than 24 hours if in elims, like how the outside hit rule for territory war hits was also changed for players also participating elims.

    I agree this is annoying. And as long as they did like what 10 hits they can get the merits? That's really BS. 

    But at the same time they're not losing tickets this way. :/ At least they're semi helpful to their team in a way. Not just logging off in torn.

    I do think that Chad should make sure that they can't get any merits if they're away for 24 hours or whatever. Even if they did some hits. Because it is just plain old not fair

    It’s possible they did. I did see a conversation recently that someone thought some weapons images had changed this week, you could be correct. I just recognized it because of the carrying handle LOL.

    shouldve just asked this in bugs i guess.

    abuse...?

    just throw away weeks of gameplay for a small chance of a merit? seems kinda inefficient to me.

    As a noob in elim, I will say I got little if any training in during this time. All my E was devoted to what few attacks I could manage, and most of my time was in the hospital. I would wait until my stakeouts were clear of the hospital, heal quickly, hit as many as I could, and then travel to let my E build back up and not cost my team any more tickets. I got in a few crimes, but nothing crazy.

    If you're a noob that can just sign up for elim, fly somewhere, and take a Torn break for a few days just to come back to earning 1-2 merits (3 if you get your 50 attacks in), competition tokens, not getting murdered left and right, and not really hurting your team either, that's not a terrible trade. Add in that you might get monetary compensation from high levels ("hey man, run away for a week and you'll earn X million") because now one less weak target is available, it might even be worth it. Especially as you can't hustle as much as you normally do during elim.

    I’m pretty sure the M249 PARA LMG used to point to the top right corner (angled up, so looking more like a triangle than a horizontal left to right gun). It’s one of very few weapons I have to 100% xp, though it’s been months since I did that one.

    I would recommend NOT joining elimination and just play the game and get strong. You can get those merits next year. there's plenty others which you can obtain without such high cost. 

    Unless, of course, you intend to not be playing a year from now. But in that case, why bother with merits?
