When a minor scene, even something as small as paying tolls to a gang affiliation takes 20 minutes..not to included the ridiculous times of using the public transit systems to perform updates on a crucial part of the game as a player.. I'm running into a situation where not only can I not do what the rest of the player base can do, but my loses are way more severe because I lack the time to recover from them.
In addition, because of my limited time frame and that I have certain things that I need to do in that time frame it seems like I'm more easily targeted as well.
I have a schedule, and it's not hard to determine.. Maybe it's just how I'm taking the loses, or not factoring in that everyone else takes the same loses. Once again, it's a time versus progression thing I guess.
I've seen it stated multiple times that chyen is not the end all be all for progression, and I agree. But I've also seen posts mentioning stalking someones pad for 4+ hours to rob them and that's my play time overall.. broken up during the day. How do I even compete with that when I can't even play that long, and not only that but it's not hard to learn someones schedule when they can't play all day.
What it boils down to, as a whole is can someone with a limited time frame be successful in playing SD and I don't mean this as winning.. but actually feeling like they are doing something worthwhile in the game, and some suggestions for what they can do to maybe deal with the fact that they can't play as much as what it seems like most of the player base can?
