did it occur to you, that if they hadn't added them or if they changed rooftop and high prority case now,they could/would lose players all together....thus no one plays,no one pays....i get your loyal i do,but Stevie Wonder can see what is going on here.....
if you will remember there was quite sometime inbetween the removal of replay and the paycut and then they added missions into the pause menu with coveted,crystal clear out 2&3 etc.while i have no proof that is why they removed it for this reason i whole-heartedly believe it,i remember what was going on then,hell it caused me to never get a full payout on base invaders on my first character
That's all well and good, but what I'm saying is, R* didn't have to put the missions on the menu at all.
On top of that, R* could have fixed what very likely still is something that wasn't intended: The mission "Rooftop Rumble" having it's name and payout swapped with "High Priority Case." Yet, they haven't. The gave Rooftop a minor buff that, after the first play, is really no more difficult than the original mission, IMO, just eats up a bit more time.
What I'm saying in a nutshell is, if R* really wanted to cut off the access to gaining cash in-game, they could do that fairly easily.
They could take the missions back off the menu, so that the missions could only be access when you got them by phone, which would pretty much kill grinding.
They could "fix" Rooftop Rumble and give it the payout that it was originally intended to have.
In short, they could do a lot more that would cut off the cashflow in the game, in order to encourage the sale of cash cards, if they really wanted to. Thus far, they haven't, IMO.
For me, it's still very easy to just do basic stuff in freeroam, run a couple missions here and there and still turn a profit. Of course, I don't go all John Rambo through freeroam, shooting off rockets and grenades left and right, either.
You make the mistake of thinking the people that come here and post complaints are the majority.
You are a minority, this is always the way with gaming forums. Those who aren't whining are generally playing and having fun.
66m in cash card sales says there is a lot of people happily playing.
I for one would welcome the missions being fixed. I like the hard missions, I'm not some whining little chump who wants things to be handed to me.
dude i worked for what i have,i play the game everyday,i play the missions on hard,but we aren't the demographic,i was speaking in broad terms,i can hear the tweens crying from here if they switched the missions and the payouts but,don't presume to know me and call me a whiny chump.....
