Born near the border of Russia, Jacob saw a business opportunity early on - smuggling. It started when he noticed his father hiding some illegal cigarettes when the family was visiting the neighboring Russia. So, Jacob started asking his father how this smuggling works. To his surprise, his father had been in the business for 10 years, only because he was fired from his previous job, leaving the family with not much income.
At first, Jacob was told not get involved with the smuggling; however, when he turned 18, his dad let him get involved. For the first few years everything went as smooth as butter, Jacob was earning more than enough money for himself, while climbing the ranks in the operation. However, during a meeting with a supplier, Jacob received a text message that the man he is in a meeting with, has snitched to the police. Jacob excused himself from the meeting, leaving some of his companions with the snitch. He sneaked out of the farmhouse, carefully checking his surroundings, and disappearing into the nearby forest. After 15 or so minutes, Jacob started hearing loud bangs and gunshots.
He knew he was compromised and couldn't return back to his homeland. So, he started heading deeper into Russia. To make his life more difficult, a serious flu had started to spread in Russia, which meant more police and military on the streets. Eventually, Jacob made his way to Chernarus in hopes of laying low in the area
What if I don't play in the same timezone as the owners of a settlement? Do I have to wait for them to get online? I have my own real life needs and I don't have all day to wait for some people to get online so I could conduct a raid. Plus the solutions you are suggesting would require a lot of unneeded time and effort.
And I'll add this - If people can be online to loot the airfield, Tisy and Kamensk 5 times a day when I'm not online, then I should be able to raid them whenever.
