Suggestion For The Game
« on: December 05, 2009, 11:55:06 am »

I normally take hostages if I am going to close down a site with rookie squads as it gives me a backup plan. I can threaten to kill the hostages when I am in the building but when I am escaping I can't threaten to do so! I was wondering why this is the case, also if the conservatives do not back off then would it be possible to implement a way of killing the hostages?

There actually is a way to kill hostages, if they don't let you go, you can shoot the hostages.

If the conservatives don't back off, but don't fight you either, you get a menu that allows you to fight, kill the hostages, or try one more time but lose the hostages.

Here it is.

Note that executing a hostage won't do you any good if you don't have multiple hostages. Killing your last bit of leverage will just make them shoot at you with greater anger. Killing the first of five hostages, on the other hand, will make them start to consider whether direct confrontation is really the best way to handle this situation.

Hmm, that seems like quite a good system, actually.
