The problem is the drug producing factions. I swear no one in BoS knew how to add. They use to sell their stuff at a loss to themselves. No wonder so many of them would have to perma die to get more uc.
I hate to say this, but Torn is right. There also needs to be a heavy consequence for failure. Risking nothing to gain a portion of another factions funds seems really unbalanced. There needs to be a reason not to do it.
