If you look at other popular open worlds games when you play a criminal, for example, you become very notorious if you're running around blowing the heads of civilians and stealing cars and performing criminal actions.

We have that same matric in APB but its players as content. The police we send after you are the enforcers, so if a criminal has done so much that evening, he's been playing for a couple of hours and he's gone absolutely crazy, he hits what we call 5 stars in our heat metric, and all of a sudden he becomes unlocked to the entire district, so there are repercussions for those actions.
