Yes, but the threshold there is much smaller to get the exit right. If you don’t leave within that exact second, you’re in trouble.

 

My friend and I have had much more success with Act I simply because the cutscene to leave is much more forgiving. 

Wut I've never f*cked it up. And I pilot as host.

Great! I played thru the Doomsday heist on Xbone, I've no intention of touching the SHlTE again on ps4.

 

Also, I've got the Clown van so arena wars don't interest me either.

It’s a pity I have nobody I play with anymore or any real time to invest in a heist due to looking after my daughter...all I’m waiting for is a paywall discount and then I’ll play again...it’s been around 4 months since I’ve touched GTA now

I like the Deveste8, the rear wheels are all wrong but if you use a livery and don't look at them it's OK. And the handling is just right, fast but it'll cut you if you f*ck up.

The only problem I foresee after this week of 2 x payouts for Act 1-3 is where is everyone supposed to park their yacht?

Boy did I just luck out. Found a random lvl 140 something player to run act 3 finale with and finished it with only myself dying once. Maybe it was because I split the take 50/50 with them? Easiest heist I've ever played, and with the double payout, some of the best/easiest money I've ever made. If only heisting with randoms was always this simple and lucrative lol. I Have another act 3 finale ready to go on my second character and plan to run it with my new friend again, that ugly ass Duterte Eight will be paid of in just over an hour of play time.

Nothing to be ashamed of. These "heists" are not bringing anything new except for the new level of bad game design. Infinite hordes of NPC enemies, nausea-inducing corridors with poor textures and seizure warning level of flashing lights, non-stop idiotic chatter of Lester that I've skipped for the most part, logic-defying actions and so on. I've played them all once and never bothered to replay again. Criminal mastermind? Even for 1 billion I won't actually bother.

I love the vehicle discounts. I finally bought myself a Deluxo, and i saved about $1,000,000. I would try and save up for some other DDH vehicles, but i havent unlocked the trade prices for the others vehicles as i have only completed the first heist.

I get your point, especially Lester's constant barrage of average acting, but your viewpoint is also a bit extreme. I sometimes do heists with friends just for the fun of them, especially when I can play with regular mates in a chat-party, it's so much more fun.

 

I've also been enjoying the Arena Wars with mostly full lobbies, plus the Devastate hypercar is pretty awesome for taking around the map and generally being very fast.

 

I've no major complaints this week except for the lull in forum participation!

These heists just get easier and easier too, lol. Damn PSN seems to be struggling but before that me and the lad are breezing through my final CMM challenge. (Halfway through act 2 currently).

 

Just gotta learn where the NPC's spawn mainly, so long as ya don't look to rush, easy pickings. Aside that, great bonding experience too. :)

I actually think DH, but especially the original Heists are the pinnacle of what GTAO has to offer. As much as I love running my empire in free roam and maintaining the various passive incomes, Heists will always be way more immersive, stimulating and just plain fun. I wish R* would have assigned a team to design a heist each year. We could have had a casino heist, a Union Depo heist, and maybe even one with the cut Alien Wars stuff. At least R* used some of it as well as some of the Agent SP DLC content for Doomsday Heist.

Not on PC, fortunately. We got lucky with one glitch for once

I logged in yesterday and tried to do the doomsday heist, I just couldn't figure out how to start it and I kept getting distracted. ultimately I pressed the wrong button and my PS4 shut down and I gave up (after a couple of hours).

Close as soon as status bars in lower right disappear.  Have drone this more that 100 times without a single fail.  We even found once when late that we were ok closing it when Lester first appeared.  So, I am not sure what issues you are having...

Of course my point is a bit extreme, because the Doomsday is extreme. IMO it brings cancerous things like invisible juggernauts and infinitely spawned NPCs in closed quarter combat. Plus, on consoles it's less noticeably, but indoor lightning and indoor textures in new GTA updates are really, really poor: no reflections, compare it to the executive garages for the example and too grainy walls. That's one of the major reasons I don't like neither heists in DD nor the Arena, it looks awful to my taste. Gameplay-wise, I don't like them too: DD forces first person play to be more effective and I don't think it's canon for GTA while the Arena is essentially simulates demolition derby without visual representation of the damage. What's more important, neither things are GTA-related IMO and there are countless games that did the same thing better. TLDR, both updates are badly designed IMO. While I like the vehicles, the backstory to use them is an absolute waste of time. 

 

If you ask me, I'm good with the old DLC model: some freemode missions, some cars and other vehicles and vague main topic to glue it all together. I really want to see more core GTA experience and less mimic of other games.

 

Forum participation reflects the dull state of the game. (Hard)core players are still there, but I'm less and less present both on the forums and in the game. I'm mostly cruising in modded SP and soon I may try the FiveM, if I'll decide to pass with Dirt Rally 2.0.

Has anyone thought that this week is basically a way for R* to find out who is cheating the Bogdan Final and ban wave them in time for the next DLC. They know people are abusing the Final and cannot stop it but they can f*ck over anyone that does it and what better way to catch more fish than to attract the fish to them?

Lol no one has been banned for glitches as far as I know.

I even found a hidden message in one of my support tickets (Thanks to Fun 2) where it said that 'user has quite a bit of modded progress on their account'.

With modded they must mean glitched, but either way, they're well aware.

I'm glad the promo art people agree with me about the rear wheels/wheelbase being all f*cking wrong on the DVST8, look at that artful smoke coming off.. the front tyres :D

What? No-one has been banned for glitches? HA! So all the ban waves and multitudes of posts I have seen about people getting banned for glitching money are just figments of my imagination right?

That's on PC, and that's modding.

I've never seen anyone complain about being banned for doing a glitch, only for using/receiving money from people using mod menus.

 

If this were $100m per hour, then it might get.. fruity. But it ain't.

I don't believe anyone would get banned over these heist re-runs at all.

 

That said, with Pac Standard runs, folk were earning far less as it was a 4 person job and the max pay is far smaller so the amount a player earned in a day was much less overall. Whereas with Bogdan, players can earn near 2m or so every 15 minutes, if players sit on it all day, especially those with 2 consoles, earnings per day are huge compared.

 

More just wondering/curious if R* has a built in thing where if X amount earned in a short period can be flagged up is all. Just speculating of course, but they have ways to slow/cap those selling duped cars is more along the lines of what I'm thinking.

 

Again, I don't believe they will but  anything is possible with these guys in charge, lol.

Apparently.

 

People only get banned for modding. Glitchers, at most, will get their glitched money removed. But even that is rare.

In defence of the Doomsday heists, they aren't that bad. 

The 'invisible juggernauts' show up in just the first setup for Act 3,and when you equip thermal goggles, they are visible. The setups pay more than the regular heists and you can do them with fewer people to split the profits.

 

They are dispatched easily by minigun rounds to the face. That's it. 

 

The bad spawns of Avons clones are predictable in most of the missions,if you play them enough. 

 

The only three gripes I have with the Doomsday heists are

-the reset progree for the challenges. 

 

-the CEO fail/spectate error. 

 

-the laser beam rapid fire instakill headshots by enemies when cornered. 

 

I also believe Rockstar has never enabled double money or RP on the setups because of the sheer amount of money and rp you could get. 

 

Act 3 setups on hard pay $45k. 

 

On double money they would pay $90k paired with the sheer volume of enemies to mow down you could easily get over 10000rp per setup
