why do some random players try to set your pay at 10 or lower?

i've tried twice to join another player's prison break only to see them set my pay to 5% the first time and 10% on my second try?

on each time i left, i'm not going to get ripped off.

Really? Do you really need to ask? Obviously because they're trying to take the most money possible...

'Cause they're as greedy as Rockstar.

 

Inb4 Zhake comes by and says I set his payout to 0%. YOU ASKED FOR IT!

Because they can.

 

I'm convinced that the ppl in R* who decided to give the host this power without setting a reasonable limit to how low the cut can be were giggling like schoolgirls when they imagined the arguments & the frustration it will cause.

But you did it :(

 

OT: It's really simple... they're dicks and don't think about getting a crew in a long-term.

It's stupid from the host as it's saying accept this amount or I'll have to wait endlessly for another group to join to earn that money.

 

People don't have logic/basic math. Like the ones who thought they get paid more waiting 24 minutes in RR rather than doing it 3 times in that 24 minutes.

lol.

The lowest I'd go is 15%

10 is not enough to cover ammo expenses and make my time worthwhile

It'll backfire though. Set the payout too low, and everyone will leave. Then the crew leader gets nothing.

 

This is a lesson in capitalism.

I left a final heist for the same reason. 0% payout. lol

 

Even if the host is a d*ck you should do the heist in order to unlock the new stuff. Yesterday I started saying to hosts that they should give me a 0% cut & increase the other participants' cut in order to encourage them to stay when the problems gonna start.

SALO or The 120 Days Of Sodom

ha funny story.. It only happened once so far but I was surprised it actually happened to me.. wait.. no I'm not. I've seen the most prejudiced people come out the woodwork. dont believe me? make your character black. You'll start noticing a pattern. But back on the main topic. The host had his percentage the highest ofcourse.. the other 2 guys had 20% and then the host bumped my cut down to 5% and quickly started the game.. Good thing I was keeping my eye on the screen because I wouldnt have believed it.

 

Someone made a post about this yesterday, about people not giving you fair pay and to quit if they think they could get away with it. At first I didnt agree with his "entitled" methods, but he does have a point. Never thought I would quit because I'm not getting a high enough cut. I feel no remorse for quitting on them. It was not fair at all what he did and I hope they had to wait 30min to get someone to join up.

 

I dont blame anyone who quit when they feel like they're getting ripped off or taken advantage of. I'm good with 15% and above even if you give the other 2 guys higher than me. But dont insult me and go any lower than that.

No idea why you guys even bother with randoms. There's a whole section to find players on this very forum, called the Find A Meetup. Post in there for like-minded individuals. I never play with randoms due to no mic, don't communicate, are immature or don't do anything/screw up more than once. If someone on the forum is problematic, you can at least tell others here not to play with them and weed out who is bad. If everyone did that we can easily have a clean section of great heist players where you can ask for a team and get a good one with no issues.

It's a dream I've had for a long time and seems it's only gonna be just that seeing no one calls bad players out. They just post for another group instead. :/

20% is fair. theyre probably the same people who give 5% when hosting.

Is this really a surprise given what we know about the average player?

 

I'd just leave, but then I have a crew to play with so I'm pretty covered.

When you have to play them with randoms, just host yourself and be more fair. If servers don't put anyone in your game, well.. that's R* again. I could never get people to join when hosting races with randoms.

Are you really complaining about get 5%? you do no its a game right and you still get money and xp so why moan?

some people are greedy as hell.if i could do a heist the pay out would be even.

 

 

Meaning you pay for the setup while not receiving $ for prep missions, therefore being the one who get less income by far?

 

Well then, call me greedy, but I find 40/20/20/20 fair enough, when I join and when I host,

I would be glad to join such a heist. Of course, i would exit from that heist just before the end. I'm always setting 25% to everyone.

in my case , depend on someone's lv , newbies below average while randoms with above lv 70 get average cut and professionals , get how much they requested

This is why I only play with people I know or crew members. People just get greedier every time a new window opens.

Unfortunately because they can, thanks R*


Personally i think R* should patch this so the minimum award is 15%, i mean obviously it's good to be fair with pay out but you're always gonna get one person that d**ks around and not trying, so theres the option to award less to them

I only give people 10 - 15 % when they haven't been there for the preparing missions.

 

If they have been there for all preparing missions they get 25 %.

This is a no-win situation. I mean you could have same 4 man team right up to final, award 25% to all, then someone quits forcing you to invite another for the final. do they really deserve the 25% as they've not been there for the whole set up. Difficult one that

It's not up for the host to decide, the host will always need 3 other people. It's no different with a change of person anyways.

I've been in one where I joined the actually heist and the hosts were equal, only once where the host glitched the board(with a low level glitch) to not make the payouts appear.

Greed - I think I usually set it at 15 meanwhile I take 50%, but then again if someone doesn't like it then they can always leave my lobby

In the end, the winners are a bunch of people who cooperate and communicate.

Now if we wouldn't get separated by network issues, that would be great.
