What gangs would actually care? besides maybe tttla?
I wouldn't make assumptions about player behaviour... well I kind of can, but it can go either way.
They wouldn't even notice this profit, under the hoards of stuff they probably already have.
now that the rewards from town control box are very limited (provide a variety of items, but in small quantities), also the 3 rare items that spawn over all 6 cities in 48 hours, on average and that's it. Just about any ammunition, drug, item that the box spawns can be farmed separated more effectively, alone.
Most factions wouldn't give a dam about this.
There might be interested players who would like a boost for something automated, you're nice to some players and more/better stuff comes from the magic box, whenever players do something in the city and the controlling faction doesn't even need to lift a finger. (oh wait, yeah, don't shoot everyone on sight)
It'd have to be a HUGE profit for them to care about it.
Yes, it would have to be significant.
Currently more profitable is to be a dick and shoot everyone you see in the town with your horde of brainless militia, It'd be nice for that to change.
