So heist won't be coming as soon as most of us hoped (my guess a month before the date is even announced) but I REALLY want to do one with a group of people so I'm trying to think of how to do one. Here's my thoughts thus far and if anyone has something beneficial to input let me know. Also if you're interested in a mock heist let me know as well. Crew mates come first but if we don't have a full session we could do something.
How to have a heist with current tools:
-Pick a location such as the one accessible bank or other large location.
-Have a shootout getting everyone to have a high wanted level. (4 or 5 haven't decided which will work better. 4 seems too easy but 5 is a bit much. Wish we could have the type of police that 4 brings but on a scale large enough to threaten 16 players)
-Escape as a team. (If 16 players have 4 getaway vehicles. Only so many police will spawn so 16 cars is too easy. 4 cars makes it a challenge as popped tires can screw multiple players)
-Have a meetup location, a safety zone for those who made it.
-Have a mock reward (Our best bet since money is no longer sharable that we use the split from last job feature. I've noticed bounties and robbing gas stations count towards this. Perhaps if we have some sort of glitched/high price vehicle the heist leader can sell that and split amongst the survivors. I'm not one to glitch but this isn't to make me rich, it's to create a game mode that we were supposed to have)
That's it for now. If anyone has any ideas that could make this work or be more interesting please say so below. Hopefully we can come up with a system that people can use until the real DLC comes out and something R* won't be too pissed about.
