For those of you inquiring about mission payouts, there was a change that reduces payouts by 50% after a repeat of the mission. So, basically, the first time you play and beat the mission, you will get the full amount. Subsequent replays will see a payout amount reduced by half.

This is to help prepare for upcoming missions and content in the Beach Bum Pack as well as heists to help keep the game balanced as well as encourage the exploration of new missions and content in the game.

We understand players do like to enjoy a mission multiple times, so rather than remove the possibility of doing so, we've allowed replays of these missions at a reduced payout. Many players can get very good at a mission and beat it much faster in consecutive tries, so we've adjusted these payouts to match that case.

This also ties in to our ongoing discussion of replay availability for NPC missions, in which we are taking community feedback as well.

I apologize that there was not full clarity on this in the patch notes; however, hopefully this note will clear things up. If there are any additional questions on this, please do not hesitate to ask.l questions on this, please do not h

I like the way they say "so rather than remove the possibility of doing so, we've allowed replays of these missions at a reduced payout".

 

Well R*, it would help if there were more missions so we didn't have to repeat them ! It's hardly our fault is it.

So they put replays back in?  And does it only go in half once? Like if I keep playing eventually I won't get any money at all?

Thanks for this info, the impression I got was that the first time payout was also nerfed, having a decreased payout for repeating the mission is fine tbh, as long as they do infact add more missions.

 

They should however add some kind of notification for the player when hes offered a job hes already done though, so that he is aware that he won't get full payout.

 

 

 

Even so, this move does come across as bad since they still havnt dealt with glitchers or mega farmers in any way. (not saying farmers should get banned or put in cheater pool, but if they had over a certain amount of $ it should take a hit)

Pretty much, i'd love to play new missions every time I did one but the fact of the matter is that's just not an option if you like leveling by playing co-op mission sooner or later you are forced to replay a mission.

Would agree to this system if it was a per day thing. Like you could only get the max payout once per Day.

They say it as if some of us are purposely getting the same missions....yet we are OFFERED these missions time and time again because of R*'s lack of mission content.

What they really mean is play at our pace and not your own...because I've been given titan 3 times from Lester and check out from martin about the same...they are making excuses as to what they've done to the game...I don't mind fixing exploits or glitches, but they are really screwing with their customers by reducing payouts in hopes that people pay for cash cards.

Again, can someone confirm the replay button being back in? Because it's not for me. And if they mean we can call and ask for a job, or randomly get sent texts, uh... That's how it's been working since they first took the replay button out.

R* response to a guy complaining

 

@FutileSine

I definitely understand your frustration, but I know you will be very happy with upcoming mission content and the heists as well. I'm very glad that you're having a good time playing our mission content.

To offset the payouts that have been reduced by half for repeats, the medical bills have been cut by 75% and only affect free mode.

 

 

I tbh don't care, I play survivor and other missions to get money hahaha

If they cut the payout in half, they should at least put R2 to quick-restart back in

The replay button isn't back in. It's on the vote screen but still only works if you failed the mission.

 

When R* say 'replay' they actually mean when we get offered the same mission again.

Replay is not back, what they are doing (it may be in already, I haven't done any missions today) is to add phone missions to the voting screen - so as well as getting TDM or races you may also get "Titan Of A Job" as an option, for example.

I dunno, as long as they let people replay the missions they pulled the ability to replay from, with this new payout system.. and dont nerf any more payouts on the first play.. then this seems a bit fair.

 

The problem was being able to replay missions that took as much effort as a 3k payout but payed 20k+ instead... and if you really think about it, single player NPC missions werent replayable besides in like SA or something I think... Im not 100% on that whole thing tbh because I never replayed anything unless it was on a second run through of the game.

 

I wonder how secondary characters would work with this new system, if they would get the full payout or if they get the 50% for having done it on their first character... considering their banks are shared.

This would be acceptable if there would be more missions and they wouldn`t repeat in objective so much.

I miss the start of number 3 where the missions were so simple it was just go beat this guy with a bat lol.. not that I want them all like that.. just GTA5 got off to a pretty insane start like almost right away single player.

All that support this are f*cking morons. 

 

They do this to keep it balanced and to keep us exploring new missions. I'm sorry, but I've already explored all the 30 missions or so there is to play. Now f*ck you Rockstar and your f*cking sheep supporters!

 

You're f*cking blind if you don't see them doing all they've done simply to sell cash cards. $20 for a mere 1.2 million.... f*cking retards!

I'd rather be playing new jobs than the same ones over and over.
As it stands, there's only about 60-70 jobs.

When they came out with the term "500 missions," I took it as "jobs." I've NEVER heard races, deathmatches, and glorified deathmatches (what they call "missions") to mean missions; those are game modes.


Personally, I much prefer the jobs (especially ones like The Parking Garage with two teams in two different roles working to cooperatively complete the objective).

Well, this seems fair. There's no reason why you should be paid the same amount each time, unless you are offered the job again. They probably should have put a bit more thought into it and designed it that way, seeing as i get the feeling that even if you are offered a mission for a second time (after a few game days) it will pay half.

 

Survival is still a better and more fun way of getting money. If this has been applied to that, which i don't think it has, i will be VERY annoyed and disappointed. Seeing as does actually take some skill/thought and can't be facerolled like the 'missions' can.

People are not buy the cash cards fast enough for Rock* standards. Plain and simple. They want us to buy cash cards. When 75% of the community like it the way it was, (even though they took out replay and we dealed with it). Greedy, greedy, greedy. Quit lying to the community Rock*. Look, I like having new missions as well. But if I can make $25,000 on one mission, yes I want to atleast do it one more time for $25,000, NOT $12,500. Rock*, you get on your knees to please a small percentage of the people. When are you getting on your knees for me? Bi*ch LOL
