Trust me man, cops have never been a super gang, never will. Before we got v2 out and running me and some other guys were the only one's fighting the cops, giving them a proper fight. They got smacked every single day, they were tired of showing up because they knew it was the same group doing all the banks, feds, prison etc. They even changed it to a 2 life rule, before you were forced to show up until the situation was over.
But yeah I agree the rebels are worse than they used to be. hopefully that will change in the future.
I didn't use to be a " career cop " like I am now, but I wish the cops were like they are now when I was only playing civ. Would have been more of a challenge and alot of more fun it it was. Remember the cops are on the server to give the civs/rebels a run for their money aswell. And look at our server right now : 80 people online only 4 of them are cops.
