This sounds promising. I was kicking myself for not leveling to 100 last week. Does anyone have an estimate what the RP would be for a mid 80s character on this one?

As someone below 30 and post stimulus package, I have to say ranking up is very daunting and kind of puts me off from trying to be a high rank. It would require months and months of playing time I don't have anymore. Maybe two years ago, but not now. I wonder if a lot of new players will stay very long.

I am going to stop at 25 and move on.

also I just did this with 2 friends, I didnt get a huge RP boost at all (at level 81, 2 laps)...did you have the times set to world record or personal as that may have screwed me over lol

Why? GTAIV's servers have been active for over 5 years. RDR is still being played. Just because it had a launch hiccup, doesn't mean every player will abandon the franchise lol

If it were true, nobody would be playing the Halo series solely b/c of how "Reach destroyed the Halo Formula"

thought the statement I replied to was just about the online part not the whole GTA series (which I doubt would die)....but yeah unless they make GTA 5 for next gen I cant see many people still playing it in a years time so it'll be pretty dead... but thats just me

It gets said a lot about quite a few games b/c of a hiccup or problem here or there. People assume a lot and wind up being wrong. I guarantee this online lasts longer than a year.

There's a mission called potshot where you can get 1400rp and $7000 in 2 minutes solo.

As soon as you start grab a car from the road, drive up the track to the van, as soon as you round the corner and see the two guys at the bridge stop, get out and kill them both, now wait around 20 seconds and the van will drive toward you, kill the driver and deliver the van.

Not sure how good that is in terms of rp compared to other stuff but it's a super easy/quick mission with what seems like decent rp and good money.

That's the only downsides you can't, once it's finished you have to press continue and return to freeroam, then load it up again.

With loading you could probably do the mission three times in 10 minutes.

At level 87, I'm getting 2675-2750 RP per race solo on Down the Drain. Since they changed the payouts, it's based on the length of the race so set it up for 2 laps and make sure to take at least 4 minutes to finish. Class doesn't matter so just pick something slow. I tried 3 laps and 5-6 minutes to finish but it didn't increase the RP. If you finish in 3 minutes the payout is significantly decreased so I'm pretty sure the cap is at 4.

So it's +2500 RP in 4 minutes, kinda crap method. A friend of mine (LV702) tried this (or kept on doing this) with Criminal Records, he just waited 2 minutes.

I'd rather do the COVETED mission, if I had to.

Yeah, it's not great by any means but it takes little effort and it's quicker to restart than Coveted. You can practically do it with your eyes closed. Shore Up sounds pretty good for the lap one RP, though.

So i noticed the nerfing of Race payouts altogether and it is disappointing...but I also tried GTA Race last night for the first time and I didn't care about payouts anymore. I still wound up getting a medal completed for winning bets but it was all good fun.

If they nerfed Jobs, I can't notice it b/c I'd never played the Martin mission Jury Duty or something which I'd noticed but never done since I figured 1-8 ppl would be something painful. Took two tries but me and the guy in my car got 20k while the other 2 got 10k. I noticed missions have been reducing payouts on replaying them but if you haven't touched these missions, their overall main payments remains the same. Another example is I'd done Titan of a Job at least 10 times since it started paying $10k. I'd assumed it would keep loweing but I still got half (5k) last night. Armored trucks still pay out nicely and survival still kicks out 20k as we tried and survived the Beach Bum one.

Earning money and RP is far from impossible as far as I can tell. Started at 70 and was 73 within my 2 hours of playing.

Many of the missions are still good and I've done the Lester and Martin ones many, many times. You can't always get them when you want, though. My first character is at level 129 and most of that was from doing the good missions and a little CR grinding.

At this point, all I really want to do is get my second character to 100 with as little hassle as possible. I feel like I've played all of the missions to death.

It's a bigger grind now on most of the "easy" races like Criminal Records. 1st place paid out just over $1000 and nobody else made over $900 last night I believe. We tried multiple or one lap, different race styles, etc. It's most likely based on actual distance than time racing now.

Not as easy and simple as it sounds if you start as last even turbo-start won't help you there. I won't even mention GTA mode...So no it's not.

I'm sure he means pairing off with a friend but I wouldn't say the start-boost doesn't help the last starting position. I've won a few times. It's dependent on the car you have and positioning rather than simply starting first.

Obviously a custom-car makes a lot of difference. Didn't know that I have to point that out here.

Obviously but I wasn't even saying that. Like if everyone doesn't have a custom sports car, we'll turn Custom off just so it's not super unfair to those not having one.

Do more jobs on martin, lester and ron or when trevors jobs appear at random, they have good RP and cash boost than survival so survival is just too boring.
