While anyone can create and join temporary groups to play with friends, gangs on the Asylum operate more like a guild in MMORPGs. You can form a gang when you own a house of your own, converting it into a gang HQ, and the invite all of your friends. Ranks allow you to control who can access certain things like your gang bank account.
Gangs are fully persistent, which means they never go away unless you disband them. When you log back in another day, you’ll be grouped up with your gang players who are online.
Each gang has a special bank account where anyone can deposit money and high-ranking members can withdraw. Belonging to a gang also opens up territory control, allowing you to make substantial income by controlling drug cartels or even gain access to new weapons and vehicles by holding the arms dealer.
