"We Apologise That There Was Not Full Clarity About This"

You might have noticed this over the weekend, but just in case, Rockstar left a fairly crucial tweak out of the latest Grand Theft Auto Online patch notes.

A new NewsWire support post confirms that rewards for replaying already-completed missions have been halved. "For those of you inquiring about mission payouts, there was a change that reduces payouts by 50 per cent after a repeat of the mission," reads the missive. "The first time you play and beat the mission, you will get the full amount. Subsequent replays will see a payout amount reduced by half. This is to keep the game balanced as well as encourage the exploration of new missions and content in the game.

"We understand players do like to enjoy a mission multiple times, so rather than remove the possibility of doing so, we've allowed replays of these missions at a reduced payout. Many players can get very good at a mission and beat it much faster in consecutive tries, so we've adjusted these payouts to match that case.

"We apologise that there was not full clarity about this in the patch notes; however, hopefully this note will clear things up. If there are any additional questions, please do not hesitate to ask."

Hmm. Thoughts?

Stay tuned for Matt and Carl's ridiculous GTA Online exploits. This week: Jetski Jousting!

Would be a decent idea if they'd implemented it from day one.

I'm not sure if this is working as described above. Was playing with a friend yesterday on some missions he wanted to clear from his log. Neither of us had completed them before. He got full pay whilst I got half.

It appeared as though the person who's mission it was it the full payout and I assumed I would get the full amount when I got the mission on my own?

Am I making sense?

We're not stupid R*, we know why you kept this detail out of the patch notes. People are looking for new ways to farm cash and xp because everybody is poor and LS is expensive. There are only so many missions to do R*. Stop **** with us.
