Please don't turn MTA into yet another role-playing game. There's plenty of them around already, much better suited to the genre as they were designed as role-playing games from the start.
MTA is about dropping in, driving, shooting, having fun and dropping out again. I can't think of anything worse than having to join a 'clan', build up my 'skill-points', do 'jobs' for 'money' to buy better weapons etc. etc. etc.
Anyway, there seems to be a split amongst MTA players over this. Some people love the idea, others hate it. It'll be interesting to see how it pans out. If it turns all role-playing, I for one will not be playing anymore.
there IS a difrence between Roleplay and Rollplay. Roleplay is chooseing a role and acting it out. Rollplay is dices n shit. Roleplay and Rollplay do sometimes cross paths ( like roleplaying in the HL mods AHL have OOC and money plugins ) there are ALOT of Roleplayers that like the multi seat Idea. VC is very big and RP can work in it.
