I myself enjoy doing most of the missions in the game but sometimes the payouts are so tiny you pay more for amour and ammo then you make in the job.

 

I don't mean like each job will pay $18k but at least raise the payout for missions the harder they are the more you are paid.

 

Would you play more missions if the payouts were better or would it not matter to you?

They'd still pick the one that pays most...f*cked mentality people have these days extends their greed even to their hobbies.


That said, I already play variety, but the increased cash would be nice...but still no game-changer for me.

I play missions because they're fun, although I do sometimes find myself spending more on ammo and armor then I make doing the job. It's annoying but I can always start up rooftop rumble if I need some cash.

I think it would be easy for R* to balance all of the missions to the same pay scale as RR for both money and RP.  I also think it would be in their best interest to have people playing a variety of missions instead of just grinding the same ones.

 

I might be over-simplifying this, but I don't see any downsides to the same pay rates ($ and RP) for all missions... or activities for that matter.

I used to be like that. However now I seem to have changed - will only do missions with high payouts for the cash. The fun comes from feeling like I'm "building something" e.g. cash level rather than the mission itself.

 

Maybe that'll change with heists.

 

Generally if I'm just having fun it's deathmatches/races.

I think the people glitching would still glitch and they just use costs of things to try to justify it to themselves.

Glitching isn't as easy as it used to be - I can't even be bothered, would rather buy a cash card.

If missions had higher payouts I'd do more (rather than just RR) - but then I guess R* loses out on cash card sales.

I want increased race payouts.  It's BS that in a 3 minute race, you only get 1k.  You are better off robbing a store.  Race payouts were perfect before they patched them in 1.06.

pay more for amour

Most of the time I choose not to be 'that guy' but occasionally I just have to...

Amour is never cheap. French girls know what I'm talking about.

OT I'm not against increased payouts, certainly. I would like to see the top reward missions better balanced in terms of reward vs duration vs difficulty. Xyn is right that the farmers/grinders will always focus on the job with the perceived best return... Anyone who played mass effect 3 multiplayer probably knows "white geth gold"...

Missions should pay based on difficulty.  So Method in the Madness should pay the most.

There is no way to balance that, you increase the payout people will still pick the highest and easiest one to grind.
 
If really want player do more different mission, maybe make something like a chain bonus.
Like you help Martin finish a chain of mission in a row, you got a bonus payout, or you finish a chain of mission, you can do a secret mission which is high payout and high difficulty.
At least you got some reason to do low payout mission in that case.

Yes but the race payouts have been increased while payout for missions have never been increased

It's funny because people don't realize that after playing several missions you can make some nice bank if you play the right missions i've played missions for an hour or so the other night and came out with around $150,000 and not one of them was RR.

Although i like that R* allows you to choose jobs from the start menu now that is the bulk of the reason why nobody ever plays any other missions now because they can choose to play RR before it was a lot easier to get people to play missions other than coveted or RR.

 

I'm not proposing R* get rid of the start menu but put a timer on how many times you can play a mission in an hour like maybe one or twice a GTA hour or something.

No Hay Bronca may steal that.
Odd that this is a newbie mission, given it's length and endless spawn factor...of course, with the special carbine I doubt it's as hard as it used to be with an uzi & pistol.

Farmers would continue to farm the highest paying mission for the least amount of work.
Glitchers would continue to bitch about the payouts being too low and use that as justification for their glitching.
People who just play the game would play what they wanna play, when they wanna play it.

In short, nothing would change in the community... Just the number behind the GTA$ after the jobs. Heists won't change anything, either....

Farmers will find the highest paying heist for the least amount of work and that will eb their new "Rooftop Rumble."
Glitchers will bitch about the heist payouts being too low and use that as justification for their glitching.
People who just play the game will play what they wanna play, when they wanna play it.

That would be much better if you ask me. I would like some of the small missions pay roll increase just everyone can do different missions once again. Also I would like to see Survivor Missions increase their payroll by 5 thousand more. And that is what would make some people happy and most like try to do it with heart and not out of just doing them.

I seriously agree with this, that mission a titan of a job is quite hard especially when you need to land the bulky piece of sh*t titan on the air strip, and you get i think like 9k on hard which is so silly as its way harder than RR....................

 

Also I think I would definitely play different missions all the time if all missions that were as tough as RR or more got a minimum payout of 15+k on hard, then it is worth teaming up with 3 other players to clock a hard mission not when the payouts are like 4-9k and quite tough.

If really want player do more different mission, maybe make something like a chain bonus.
Like you help Martin finish a chain of mission in a row, you got a bonus payout, or you finish a chain of mission, you can do a secret mission which is high payout and high difficulty.
At least you got some reason to do low payout mission in that case.


That's actually a pretty good idea... I'd suggest it be sort of like how the "Clear Out" award is achieved:

When joining online, you get an email sent to your phone (using the recently added email icon). Once accepting this, you trigger the start of a "playlist" of random missions, one of each from every contact:

Simeon
Gerald
Ron/Trevor
Lamar
Lester
Martin

So, 6 missions and if you complete them in succession, you get a bonus.

All of the missions in the "playlist" from one contact would work, too... Just figured that a mix of contacts would be better, so chances are less that you get 6 low paying missions.

Should be pretty easy to implement, from a programming standpoint, I would think.

I like joining random missions people are hosting, my major gripe with that is Rooftop Rumble because almost every bugger plays that for the cash and I'm BORED of that one, I've tried hosting other missions but usually I end up doing it alone because nobody joins despite doing the invite thing and having matchmaking set to open.

 

Payouts on almost all the missions need re-balancing, so the relatively quick & easy ones give less cash and the more involved and difficult ones that take longer where you really need other players to join in give a higher payout.

I think in the future now that RR is on the start list and wasn't suppose to pay as much as it does will be swped with the mission High Priority Case which is worth the 18K and actually make sense but i don't think R* bothered with it because it could only be played when you'd call for it but now that it's accessible anytime i think they are going to finally switch it to the right missions and when that day comes just wait for all the people making threads crying because they actually have to work for that money now.

 

That would be much better if you ask me. I would like some of the small missions pay roll increase just everyone can do different missions once again.

I actually made a thread talking about the payouts difference between Rooftop Rumble and Survival stuff about Survival a while back let me see if i can find it.

 

I can't but i have rough draft i had saved and I'll post it again

I don't think RR should be touched... everything else should be balanced to compare with it in time/difficulty/etc... including other activities (racing, golf, etc).

Somehow I don't think R* would like to regularly give out 50-100k for some missions...

I think they should increase the amount received for a lot of the lower missions.  There's a lot of people who don't want to play Rooftop Rumble for ages and would enjoy having different missions to play while still receiving a good amount of money.  Some lower missions take 10-15 minutes and only pay like 5k, its really stupid.

You being a bigot and you fault us for taking it seriously?

 

Sorry if we take offense to your comments but stuff like that isn't welcome around here or anywhere really except maybe in your family and friend that is stuff you keep to yourself because we don't want to hear it.

 

If you got a problem with a mod PM them or go to the GTA Network threads and post there my thread isn't the place to air your issues with Latinos or the Mods and don't post again unless it's about what i posted otherwise i will report your post like i did the other ones because i'm not going to have my thread locked that has a genuine topic because you want to be a bigot.

I like doing different missions, not just RR.
But I tend to avoid Simeons missions, that cheap.. Every single of his missions are not worth it and will result in me losing money.

That seems a little extreme... they just need to figure out a pay rate that players get for time spent doing activities... and apply it to everything.

 

I'm probably being overly-simplistic... *shrug*

if R increased mission payouts no one would need to play RR all the time, happy now?
