Trolling the Gang Leaders In Escape Mode...

Postby Darkrious1 » Sun Nov 01, 2015 8:06 pm

This is meant to be a funny thread and not a serious one.

It's been discovered that yes under some circumstances gang leaders will attempt to recruit you into their gang if you meet criteria like skin color, head style, etc (bald head with little (no full beard) to no facial hair is a hit with the gang leaders if they're looking to recruit). In one prison I'm usually assimilated almost immediately http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=530985130&searchtext=. Specifically by Curtis the gang leader for green gang. If I follow the regime and go to the yard or canteen and I meet criteria he'll come after me like a shark once a short time passes. One time he recruited me as I was still being escorted to my cell from reception.

I then had a interesting idea... What if I kept running away from him once he started following and coming after me to attempt to recruit me and see if he loses interest after awhile. I was actually in a whole different yard from where he normally is, so I figured I was safe from him as he can't see me and I assume prisoners AI follows the same FoW rules as the staff. Turns out that's not true and Curtis came down into my yard half across the prison and charged right for me. Role-playing the regime (I know I don't have too, but what the heck) I was stuck in the yard for another 40 minutes. I then starting running away from Curtis just before he got into range to recruit me and started running around in circles in the yard, seeing if he would lose interest especially once yard time ended. Well so far no dice. Yard time ended and become 'Work' time and he's still after me trying to recruit me. I know gangs don't work, but you'd think the period change would kick something off that would cause a change in task as a new priority trumped. A few hours later still running away from him. Not safe in my cell either. Gonna keep this up into Eat time triggers and see if that causes a change in task even if temporarily.

Has anyone else did this once you know on certain maps who's the gang leaders and try to avoid them and if they do come after you, try to get away before they can add you to their gang collective? Feels like getting away from the Borg in Star Trek, only its one guy and he moves much quicker then a Borg, but the same determination and relentlessness.

Update:

Well after 3 hours of running around Curtis the Green Gang Leader trolled me and got me anyway. I was running around the outside areas of the prison and after awhile assumed I lost him and that he lost interest so I took a breather at the Weight Bench with no Curtis coming from the south which was where I was previously and assumed I lost him. After like 5 seconds as I was just saying to myself that I beat him, Curtis comes blasting in from the west around and over his cell block into the smaller eastern yard to where I was. I saw him like a second before he got me. I tried to get away but other gang members came in and slowed my movement enough that he got into recruitment range and I was locked to a crawl in movement speed which I know what that means... Green gang had just got another recruit... Rats... A few seconds later I'm covered in gang tats. Well played Curtis and Green Gang... Well Played. Wasn't expecting that approach from around the other corner of the cell block from the north and west rather then from the south, and the other gang members blocking my path (I think they where trying to use the Weight Benches).

If there was a conversation it would probably go like this...

Me: (takes a deep breath) I got away. I can't believe I got away. Hopefully they've lost interest... I think I'll work out the old pecks and biceps a bit doing some bench presses.

A moment passes after sitting down and doing one bench press...

Me: (happens to look to the west) Oh snap, its Curtis and he found me!

Curtis spots me and picks up speed and starts walking faster towards me stating: There you are. Why you keep running away from me.

Me: Why do you keep coming after me?

Curtis: I want you to join our gang and I'm recruiting you.

Me: I don't want to join a gang!

Curtis: Not your decision. We own this joint and your joining us whether you want to or not!

Me: We'll see about that! (Starts to runaway not noticing the other gang members and goons coming into the yard blocking my path.)

Other Gang Members: Ah ha! Your surrounded your not going anywhere until the boss is done with you. You belong to us now!

Me: Noooo! (Tries to push through the crowd with all my strength.)

Curtis: Got you! (as he grabs my arm and grabs me down, locking me in place)

Curtis: This will only hurt a bit and then it will be done (fellow gang member grabs makeshift prison tattoo kit and hands it to Curtis)

Gang Member: Here you go boss.

Curtis: Excellent!

Me: Exactly how long is this going to take (I mumbled trying not to show pain as he tattoos me)?

Curtis: About an hour... (he replies as he keeps tattooing my face and body.)

About an hour passes...

Curtis: And.... Done! Welcome to the crew. You are one of us now kid. Now was that so bad? (As he puts the kit away and closes it)

Me: I suppose not really (Not trying to sound like a douche)

Curtis: Good. On the bright side you now have free access to all of our controlled yards and common areas as well as a permanent cell which can't be moved, cause we won't allow it. All this plus our community support in fights and kick-offs. Just one thing, If we tussle. You tussle. If you don't we'll come after you, Also if you attack a fellow member you'll be shanked. Last thing... Only way out is death! So don't try it! (Curtis then releases me and I'm free to go. Rest of the gang splits up as well and continues their business...

Me: Dang it, dang it, dang it! So close. I almost got away. :x

Yes, they can. Not all prisoner avatars seem to be able to be recruited however like face in the game prisoners, or those with full beards for some reason. Once recruited however you can't directly interact with the gang like make plays , capture territory recruit others excluding your personal squad. Since you can be added into a gang however might signal that more interactions between player prisoners and gangs could be coming in future updates.

They can even promote you to lieutenant. I was horribly confused when I was wandering around the visitor wing for a while looking for a lighter when the entire gang just walked up to me and stared all of a sudden. It was pretty creepy, until I realized that they probably thought I was organizing a play. Followed them a bit later to figure out I was right, and we claimed the prison's yard and common room. Felt accomplished.

Confirmed: This is true and not an isolated incident. Cheated by entering Lieutenant to my Prison's Bio in the Saved Game file (he started in a gang already), and other gang members will surround you at times for an hour or so and then go to a random common room or yard (usually nearby, but not always). I follow them where they go as they don't go to where you want to go. Play will last a random time or until the regime switches to Eat, Shower, Yard, etc anything besides Freetime and Work.

Since this is already in the game, there might be something relating to this in the next update next Friday as one of the new features. If not perhaps at some point. Maybe a separate gang reputation stat where you can raise your reputation in your gang (If your in one and they are enabled in the prison your playing) giving you certain perks or promotions with in the gang for participating in plays as a soldier and successfully making plays as a lieutenant... Maybe even raise through the ranks to become a leader (out placing the former)... Interesting...
