FAQ stands for Frequently Asked Questions. Thus, the following is a list of questions frequently asked in the game, along with their answers.

Read this article; you might learn something.

Common Questions

  • I'm new, what do I do?
Read the Beginners Guide
  • What are tokens used for?
Tokens are part of cart racing.
  • How do I get in a gang?
You can apply to a gang or be invited.
City -> Gangs Alley -> List Known Gangs -> (Gang) -> Apply
You will receive a news message letting you know if you have been accepted or denied to a gang. Generally, you do not want to mail gang leadership daily to ask about your application status. It would be reasonable after a few days to a week to send a message asking the status, although your results may vary gang to gang.
Post in the "Want to join a gang?" or "Touring Thread" threads on the Gang Chatter Board.
  • What do rats do?
Check the Rats page.
  • I have a question that isn't answered anywhere in the Tutorial. What do I do?
Post in the Information Desk Board People should be able to help you there.
  • Why does everyone react negatively to me on the message boards and in mails?
Make sure that you use real words and you make an attempt to sound like an intelligent human being. If your message board comments and mails sound like the following, you need to change your ways.

Questions You Shouldn't Ask

CORRECT: I'm still confused after reading the tutorial. Exactly how are tokens used?
  • WRONG: PLOX CN I B IN UR GANG!!!!!!!!!!

  • WRONG: Can you give me some money!?!?!
CORRECT: (You should have said nothing. Earn your money through real Begging.)

Noob Questions

As a reward for reading through the FAQ, here are some Chat dialogs documenting questions that no one should have really asked, along with some snarky replies. Some are quite funny.
