How To Fill Your Jobs! - Legit Trick Fixes Terrible Matchmaking

I know I ain't been on here often in a while, but the games been so crap recently to get people to join your random jobs... until I discovered the replay glitch that is!

 

 

Enjoy and tell all y'all friends!!!

Discovered this over a year ago. Since it's public now anyway (damn you McKeever!), I feel free to correct some info.

Basically there are two different types of priority you can get for a joblobby. When you start a job through the menu or a corona, the priority is low. Starting a job via the voting screen gives you higher priority. This is comparable to low/high IDs on old P2P filesharing platforms like eMule or eDonkey. So automatically when you replay you get higher priority.
BUT: this has no affect on the invite system. It is not necessary at all to spam invites, because people don't join through invites. This is where the downside of this trick begins.
9/10 people will join either through quick job from the menu, on call from the phone or by voting random on another voting screen. Now - who usually does that? Three types of players. People who are extremly bored, noobs or people trying to complete daily objectives.

Because of that the likelihood of people quitting during the job increases a lot and the amount of sh*tty players you get this way is incredible. So, you can increase your plays this way, but you will also ruin the rating of the particular job, no matter how good or bad it is. They will also ruin your experience, especially in TDMs and races.

 

Personally, I prefer playing with one Shelby over playing with 29 randumbs.

That's honestly too much for me. I'm fine with the original one. But it seems like I can't compete with autoaim events and stuff. I even found myself switching my targeting mode last night, but then I got kicked and realized a man should not switch his targeting mode for a woman. Never.

 

But yeah, back to topic. I guess the scientific term is called the "Xela-Effect". One stupid random can make you laugh, but at the same time he can be very annoying. With the matchmaking trick the amount of Xelas multiplies.

Not caring about the amount of plays or likes on my jobs, just want more bums on seats, the type of people that do show up are very raggedty and some do leave, but with all the things laid out correctly in the creator to stop them spamming and abusing anything it'll run a lot smoother!

Limiting the way AA can be abused in your LTS job is smart, anything beats waiting in a lobby for god knows how long.

 

Apologies for not playing longer tonight.

you guys are right. doing this trick will fill up your lobby. fill your lobby with the worst kinds of players. it will totally ruin your rating. but if you dont care about that at least you get to see people play your stuff.

I did say it was all randoms who join, I really don't give a damn about ratings on my jobs and haven't done for 3 years. Ratings aren't always a very good indicator on how good a job is anyway as people downvote quality jobs for some frankly weak reasons, stuff like "didn't like it cause my team lost" and "I couldn't find any RPGs or other noob guns"

Or just "I downvote everything because i'm 2baddass/2leet/2divine".

 

brainturds, i'd like to downvote their ability to reproduce.
