Nerfed scoring in NYM and NYM:HC after patch...

As if NYM:HC wasn't hard already, they've "tuned" the scoring in these modes so that you get hardly anything from explosions now. This effectly halves the amount of banked time you can have for the later levels in NYM:HC and makes it way harder to platinum some individual levels. This is confirmed by Rockstar Support twitter.

I noticed it first when playing NYM:HC for the 1 billionth attempt, so i tried to platinum 4-1 in normal NYM and what used to get me a platinum now only gives me a SILVER!!!

Anyone else finding it much harder to platinum 4-1? or get through NYM:HC?

Can you not just delete patch and play offline if it's just xp you want?

I think if they were going to do that, you think they would add a disc save as well. I don't think that's fair if they are going to make the levels harder.

Yah definitely, a save patch would have been nice, especially since now everyone still trying will have half the time they used to for those harder levels in the end.

And yes you can delete patch and play offline, and thats great if you dont mind unlocking the achievement without a time stamp (not too big a deal), but for NYM, you wouldnt be able to have your score uploaded to the leaderboards. Not to mention that now its impossible for anyone to attempt to beat some of those scores since they were all based on the old scoring.

Its not like the old scoring hurt the game in anyway. I suspect they did it to stop people from using 4-1 to level up their characters faster than MP can....

Ardend, how much time left you got by the end of chapter 4 on NYMHC? I just finished NYM and was going to try HC.

All I can do at this point regarding these two modes is laugh uncontrollably until I die from laughter.

Just kidding, but seriously... they made them harder? LOL. That is all.

Well before the patch, and keep in mind that i wasnt the best at meleeing every enemy under the sun to rack up lots of time, but i would usually finish 4-1 with 8-9 minues on the clock, 4-2 would push it to 10ish, 5-1 would get me to 12ish and 5-2, with its awesome exploding tower followed by tons of cars to blow up, would get me to about 15 or so. I know alot of people are at 20+ by then, but those are my times.

Post patch, the several tries i have made since, i am less than 10 by end of 5-2, usually in the 8 or so range.

Now like i said, lots of youtube vidoes show people at 20 before then, but even still, post patch they will see their times halved almost.

Point is, the racked up time is key to being able to take your time on the WAY harder later levels where enemies are armored and spam grenades like there's an achievement for it

Well tomorrow I'll do some tries, anyways we don't need 20+ minutes to make it to the last chapters, if we have beaten NYM with just 1 minute at the beginning it shouldn't be so hard.

Before starting I practiced a bit the end of chapter 12 since it's the worst part for me, you should practice the checkpoints that you think are the hardest. Thanks

Wow you are one of the lucky ones.. I have heard of people trying this at least 15 times before they finally got it.

And then people like me (or maybe JUST me) who can't even try it because they can't pass regular NYM chapter 3. Congrats on completing NYMHC though man.

i know right, i did the first level on my second attempt and i realised what i had to do to beat it, then i smashed the second level on the first go, smashed meaning i found it easy but i did get a bronze, then i tried the 3rd level and after 5 tries i gave up. its just daft!!!!!
