Rats farming is gettng a bit out of hand...
I have been in multiple lobbys today where level 100's 90's and 80's who know absouloutly nothing about the game, even jumping into two buldozers trying to kill them. I understand rats is good for XP, but it seems that rats farming is getting a bit out of hand. I cant be the only one annoyed getting into lobbys with someone who you think has some expirience in the game (Level 40's and above) and they turn out to be as smart as a level 15 guy who bought the game today

Would be really nice if people who went that extra mile with loot and whatnot got a significantly bigger reward than the fellows who always just shoot for the minimum."
This is an excellent idea that needs to be implamented into the game!

EDIT #2:
bedbugdude why did you start this thead back up? It has been dormant for over a month now

Find 3 friends. Play the game with them.

Well the game did have one measure to prevent farming, but that's gone now.

Yeah, I get annoyed too, I want to go for the money and just the thrill of doing a completely flawless Rats Heist, but too many players are too scrubby to ever even get close to cooking 5 bags without getting their butts ravaged by bulldozers and shields.

Cooking meth? WHAAAAATTT?!!! You have to cook it?!

I want to cook all seven bags and have the satisfaction of doing so, but people just run through it like it's nothing.

I'd love to see a reward system put in place for completing groups of maps. Like a punchcard type of thing. You complete every Vlad heist, you get a free coffee. Or maybe some extra xp/cards, if you don't like coffee.

It would fix this problem... or do more to fix it than adding extra escapes did, at least.

Thats what I do. Random lobbies are always a bag of mixed goods - you can find awesome mixed in with the terrible. I just happen to have massive anxiety about playing with randoms.

I'd like to literally stand up out of my seat and applaud the OP for encouraging the devs to continue their trend of forcing players to play this game the way they want (the devs), or the OP wants (wah farming), or the way some random forum poster wants as opposed to the way the purchaser of the game wants.

I'll say here as I've said before, HOST YOUR OWN GAME IF YOU WANT TO FORCE YOUR GAME PLAY ON ME otherwise stop complaining about how other people play this game. Yes, there are a lot of sucky level 100s who got there from grinding or cheating (I boot them from my lobbies) but what does it matter to you? How much skin off your nose have you lost, exactly?

Do you just boot all 100s? cause that doesn't make sense. and if you don't how do you know they are speed runners unless youve played a heist or 2 with them and see they are ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥?

You have to remember that some of those are guys that hacked their way to 100. Not all have just rushed there.

His/her name explains everything Ar♥♥♥♥e. He/she needs to surgically remove the undies lodged firmly in their rear and relieve that discomfort that is clearly showing in his/her posts.

That's a pretty big assumption.

It says you have over 50 hours on the Payday 2 demo, so you might well have more game time than some level 100's. Is the demo multiplayer? I didn't even know it existed.
