Open beta for new XP system, stability fixes
We have gone live with another beta. In this beta, you get experience from objectives instead of contacts. As an example, this means that from a job like Rats, cooking bags of meth will give you more experience than if you were to blow up the lab right in the beginning. You can also now see what the minimum and maximum experience you can get from a job is when you are buying a contract. By making these changes, you are now rewarded based on how much you do in a heist.
By giving us your feedback on these beta changes, we hope to add these changes to the live game as soon as possible. If you have any feedback please tell us in the bug reporting forum threads which you'll find here:
