I disapprove the change to the job menu.

So we all know with Heist update the NJM (next job menu) was redesigned. So lets say you started a race then the NJM would be;

 

Page 1: All races.

Page 2: All of a different event (contact missions for example).

Page 3: Mixed events.

 

Now, after the Heist update lets say you was doing races and while still on the race NJM page you hit random. What the game would do would take you to any random race. This was great, this made it actually fairly easy to fill race lobbies. It was perfect.

 

 

But now after Ill Gotten Games update, it doesn't matter if your on page 1 (all races) or page 3 (mixed events). You hit random job at any point and it takes you to random events. I tried to do what I've been doing for months, using random job on the first NJM page after a race to find populated race lobbies. What happened? I got put into Titan Of A Job.

 

 

Why did R* ruin it? It worked perfectly after heists. Now we're back to the old days where you gotta sit in a setup lobby for 10 minutes waiting to get ultimately maybe 5 people. The way it was with heists you could hit a 16 player lobby on PS3 after hitting random job 2 or 3 times.

 

 

We should voice our opinion to R* on this, revert the NJM to how it was after Heist. Random job should only take you to a truly random job if you hit it on page 3, which is random events. Otherwise it should only take you to random jobs within the event you are looking for.

I agree. It was extremely easy to hop from LTS to LTS before the update, but now I'm being placed in (insert contact mission here) I mean yes, it gives a good sum of money, but I want LTS's, not working for Madrazo or Lester again and again and again.

Erm, we only have two pages of voting screens now?

 

Page 1 - Random job on top left and whatever you have just done be it races/missions etc

Page 2 - Random page of mixed activites.

 

I have never had it take me to anything other than a race or random mission on Page 1, only ever get

other activites if I do random on Page 2 so I am not sure what the issue you're experiencing is or maybe

if you're joining through a public lobby or private.

 

I always play private and like I say always go to the same activity.

That's okay, I will see what happens tonight as I am playing with a friend and we usually play a lot of random missions

after selecting one to start with, as I just said we have never been placed in anything other than a mission so far since

the update last week.

 

Maybe it only affects certain categories of the game.

It might have been a glitch, was working normally with contact missions.. also the other players left so could be something to do with that ;/

Why does Rockstar keep changing things that don't have to be changed?

I've only been put into random jobs that matched the one I just played unless I hit random on the second page.

I've barely played since the update so I haven't seen this but I'm gonna be pretty pissed off if it happens to me tbh. Hitting Random was always the best way to find a decently filled race lobby

I've been moved to different game type on the first page random a couple of times off of a race.

 

It's generally good for the same thing, but not always.

Well just did 3 races through random vote with a friend so this must be a small issue as it seemed to

work fine just now.

Picking random selects one of the jobs listed on the current screen, if you are racing it will be more races on the next voting screen. Selecting refresh adds different jobs from your previous screen to give you an opportunity to try things you may not normally pick.

Good to hear it might of just been a glitch, hope you guys are right.

Makes no difference because every time I accept an invite from a random, they do one job/race and then they leave to free mode.

I agree, this is messed up and i'm pretty sure it's not intentional.
