Tonight we made a small but significant update to our mug and hospital systems and most importantly how they now interact. Mug has never before carried very much weight, it was a lightweight crime where you could steal a few bucks from a foe or friend, but never taken seriously. As of today, a successful mug attempt on another player will throw them into hospital for a short amount of time so they can recover. If you attempt to mug someone and fail you will also end up in hospital.
A new item has been introduced to shorten your hospital times called a “Morphine” hit. These can be found in the game in the form of morphine syringes and with each one used will reduce your hospital time by 2 minutes.
You can also now steal significantly more cash from another player than before and have an increased likelyhood of really annoying the other player with hospital hits.
Remember if your being hit by mug attempts regularly there are a number of things you can do, hide in your pad, move cities and buy the custody protection from the credits market (this will be available as of later this evening). All of these will prevent mug attempts from being made on you but will limit what you can do in the game (applies to all except flying to another city).
We hope you like it.
