PAYDAY: The Heist

Poll: Should the game "PAYDAY: The Heist" have Easy Difficulty availible for all maps? STATUS: CLOSED.
Opinions and dogma aside, let’s not go around in circles... or get distracted.

One question 'survey'; Yes or No?

Have YOUR say.

Edit: <link removed>


This survey has now closed.

The results after 2 weeks and 100 votes are: Yes: 49% and No: 51%.
Regrettably we are/I am limited to 100 responses, but the account was free.

I was keeping an eye on the results as votes came in hence I can report the results have been very evenly matched for the whole duration of the poll, I was hoping for a majority ruling but I hope people will be satisfied to call this a “wicked problem” and divisive issue.

While I know both sides have strong feelings, I hoped we could all show some self discipline and respect that others will have different opinions. While certain points really annoyed me, others I implicitly agreed with. My question was one of apathy and (in my opinion) ‘game play’ rather than the angle of “Is this game too hard?” a point I feel was somewhat lost.
I recognise that a hard line between Yes and No leaves little room for manoeuvre. And that we must see eye-to-eye to identify problems and concerns before discuss solutions and COMPROMISES.

I end with this:
We can use a 3rd party poll to get a (limited) sense of the communities view. Through safeguards the integrity of the poll was maintained, hence I am happy with the recordings.
This board lacks the controls and moderations to function effectively. Hence I sure as **** wouldn’t be using this again...

See you in-game.

sry, in my opinion NO. For the beginning is FWB and HS on easy okay. But the difficulty normal isn't very hard too ;D

The Easy difficulty level should be present for every heist, just as is the case for every other difficulty level in the game. Simple as that. I consider myself an average-to-bad player, and Normal was quite a challenge throughout the first like...50 reputation levels. The purpose of Easy mode is for brand new players to be able to figure out what exactly they are supposed to be DOING in each mission. It lets them get an understanding of the layout of the map, where the objectives are, and how best to go from one place to the next. You can't do that nearly as quickly if you're constantly at risk of being downed.

I consider myself a mediocre player, and I think Easy should be present on all heists aswell.

No. Normal is easy enough for any level of player.

easy enought, don't need Easy difficult on every map imo ;)

Yes as the game can be tough to newcomers

I consider myself an unskilled player, but I think the grind in failures to achieve a heist on normal difficulty for "bad" players should be a quality in the game. I vote No.
