Up until tonight, I had played maybe 8 missions online, and most when I was a low level. I've raced my way to level 100+ and tonight played a few missions with friends. The payouts are terrible, the cost to play is extremely high and there's a large potential for failing with no return for money invested. Racing is guaranteed money, quicker mission time, and no investment (unless you want to use custom cars). It's amazing to me how terrible the reward for the missions was. Perhaps this is a widely discussed and known thing, but I visit the forums about once a day and haven't seen a topic like it.

 

I know people are fed up with missions because of recent pay cuts, but what are your thoughts on the direct comparison between races and missions?

i'd rather deal with catch up and ass rammers than play the same mission over and over just to end up with a third of the amount of what i could've had by racing

I think missions are more for the RP aspect of the game, plus some of the later missions benefit tremendously from teamwork and that's satisfying in its own right.

 

The payouts are pretty low compared to time invested I agree, but sometimes I don't mind a 20k boost without having to compete to win it. Also for the record, I might do a mission once or twice, but once I rank up past the point where it sends me texts for them, I only do them when others invite.

 

But I do both races and missions, sometimes survivals, really just depends on the mood I'm in.

Im rank 150 and literally done nothing but races for rp. Free mode and races is all i do.

Most rp I've got from a race is 6k.

Yeah, racing is definitely the way to go as far as payouts are concerned. That said, gaming is about having fun, which is why I rarely ever do the same thing each time I log on.

Racing isn't fun.

 

Rather do missions.

If i need money i do races, but i mainly play the game to have a good time. But ya money and rp wise races are much better. sh*t with 3 ppl in a minute and a half 3 lap CR race you get 1.5k for 3rd 2.8k for 2nd and 4.5k for first. Takes a 1:30 or so. None of the numbers are exact but i know there close.

Let's see, I'm 13 wins and 41 loses, so... I think I would rather play something I do not suck at.

Lets see... 40 wins and around 140 loses.

Second place is a "loss" that pays between 7 and 10k.

I will take my 5 min race over any 15+ min mission that MIGHT pay the same.
Then again my last addicton was forza, so this is just feeding off that.

Logic works this way:
Does criminal records 1000 times in super cars.
Gets to level 100+
Eventually gets bored with going around in circles, goes to free roam.
Killed repeatedly by the level 20 whose been doing missions and knows buttons besides accelerate and brake, does some missions.
Repeatedly dies by the AI when arriving at objective 3 minutes before anyone else (because of said racing skills), back to racing.
Earns more millions and, with nothing else to spend on, upgrades to chrome adder with sweet pink rims.
Races >>> missions

This especially about being the first to arrive at objective/first to die

If you have a decent size group racing, that ratio is not suckage at all.

I'm on about ~300 wins and lost ~430. I race any class on any settings and against any players, no matter the level. Whatever I'm put into from the quick start I do. Only exception to this is criminal records. I quit from the lobby when I get this race (often). A LOT of people like to ram you, but it's not just about luck whether they succeed or not. If you know what you're doing you can help avoid being pitted.

 

Racing for me is fun, it's what I do along with free mode in which I just do whatever I feel like doing. KDR in free mode is 2.11. Killed about 1500 with approx 700 deaths.

I rank up and make money by racing, but I do missions for fun. And some missions are just that, pretty fun. Just like Survival isn't very good money or rp wise, but it's damn good fun. Deathmatches are the worst from money and rp perspective, but they are very fun yes?

Most of that is 1 on 1, and most of the most is in Criminal Record...

 

I needed the cash, don't judge.   :lol:

Yesterday I did the mission pier pressure with my cousin who barely started playing online. We got $750... I can't blame him for already giving up on this game.
