Is rockstar does not want you to earn GTA money.
The proof is in the past.
They make missions that pay money harder. They add things to the game like making jets harder to steal so you feel forced to spend 5k for the cops to ignore you. When actually you are paying 5k to use a jet. I had a perfect strategy to steal jets before the most recent patch that worked everytime and it was changed to make it much more difficult to take a jet for 'free'.
Everything they do makes it harder to gain their GTA dollars.
Heists are going to be the most over hyped thing ever.
God damnit how is this not obvious, all rockstar cares about is making their "free dlc" something that people want to pay REAL MONEY for by buying their cash cards.
Heists aren't meant to be in this game model. They want to sell their cash cards. If you think you will be able to grind heists to make 200k+ easily you are sorely mistaken.
This is all such bullsh*t and a money grab attempt that will be obvious.
It will cost more money in the long run to go on a heist mission than it will pay you. This is speculation. But rockstar does not want to give easy GTA$ because it will cut into their cash card sales of REAL MONEY.
At this point I don't give a damn about heists because I feel it will be more trouble than they are worth.
Such a joke, They found a way to sell DLC by making it feel like it is 'free'. Nothing is free
Heists won't be free money, it will be a very calculated structure that overall isn't worth it, and damn well won't be worth the anticipation that everyone has been fawning over.
