It's definitely your level. Without the required gear and skills, stealthing becomes a lot harder. For example, you'll most definitely need a silencer, so make sure you buy that asap. Skill wise, it's just more things to help make things easier (extra zip ties, body bags, ecm, etc.).

I've tended to find the bank heist a bit easier to stealth. We've tended to always keep someone on the outside watching for civvies that patrol the sidewalk. He needs to shout them down + zip tie, or kill them.

Then we sneak up to the roof and set up a loud drill on the power room door (watch out for cameras). The loud drill draws guards up the stairs. Kill them and bag them up. Then find the keycard either off the manager or on the manager's desk. Use it to open the security room on the bottom floor and kill the guard inside. Finally, charge into the bank and shout them all down + zip tie. You'll need to cover the teller area + the back office.

It's a lot easier to just kill the civvies than to watch over them if you don't have the zip ties. If you choose the kill route, you can kill the backoffice before you charge the teller area. This may not pay off well if you just do the regular bank heist map. But Firestarter day 3 uses the same map and Firestarter pays off really well - even if you just go the non stealth option. If you can stealth day 3 of Firestarter you get a ton of extra cash.

I prefer the bank heist to the Framing Frame one because that one you absolutely need to stealth day 3. Guns blazing is extra hard and annoying on day 3.

Btw, if you want to advance quickly, keep things ugly and don't be afraid to try hard or very hard difficulty as they increase your XP+cash gains significantly to get your early levels and guns. Some of the easier maps to run are:

Mallcrasher (no stealth)
Firestarter
Any "Transport" missions (no stealth)
Ukrainian job (might be easier to stealth this one if you can control the crowd and the pedestrians)

If you get C4, Ukrainian job becomes a 30s mission.

Agreed with everything but silencers. If you're going a stealth route, it's much safer to run/sneak up and melee opponents. Silencers can be heard through walls/ceilings and cause people to trip alarms.

Not just the bugs, it's how they are developing the game.
You can't join a multiplayer game and when you do you get kicked after a few seconds. There's a few players who can sometimes complete a round but that's plagued with rubber banding. It's practically unplayble. Not even the devs know what the problem is... they don't even know why some people can play and the vast majority can't. If they do know they aren't saying... most transparent development ever my arse.... anyway, I'll continue. RIDICULOUS choices for their flight model... they literally made a 6DOF model and split it into two modes.
You can't even change the key bindings... have you any idea how simple it is to include this in your game using CryEngine?
Best damn Space sim ever and you don't support HOTAS (yeah you can edit xml files to make it work, you shouldn't need that, not even for alpha)... this is 2014 btw. I could go on but I'm tired.

All you mentioned were bugs and unfinished features, which as explained are par for the course of a pre-alpha build.

Connectivity issues? You start that as your gripe in pre-alpha ?

Elephant chained up for 50 years is rescued 'and WEEPS with relief'.

It should come as no surprise to readers here that modern science is determining that animals have consciousness just like humans do. In the same way that we wouldn't abuse a small child or mentally challenged person, nor should we be treating animals poorly. Change happens slowly, but it IS happening as the truths of the older generation (animals as property and automatons) are replaced by the truths of the younger generation (animals as feeling, conscious beings).

I couldn't even read it after a bit, I believe I have more compassion for animals than humans, seeing neighbours dog while injured ruins my entire day

But all the missions are already instanced, so I doubt that'd be the sticking point?

It's quite sad to see them just ignore heists. Shit, they have enough money, just buy the PayDay devs and have them make it.

But I don't want to pay $3 for each weapon group, and $6 for each new heist rockstar makes. You take you Overkill DLC raping dev team and go home!

Yeah, I agree, getting no heists at all is much better.

If overkill did it, we would see 1/4 content released and the rest slowly released and charged for.

I will gladly wait for it to happen naturally. Or a PC mod with countless custom heists. If it has a fall release, heist mods by Christmas easily.

Oh look! New Payday 2 DLC! $7 for a SINGLE HEIST.

Please don't push that absolutely vile Rockstar Social Club bullshit on us this time.. It's done so much damage already, with GTA 4 and Max Payne 3. :/

It wasn't required on the consoles, but it was extremely handy in tracking missions and showing what neat stuff you'd not found yet, including where they were on the map...

You also got free singleplayer garages, and access to extra cars (The GTR equivalent, elegy RH8) for signing up for Rockstar Social... I know my singleplayer garages are packed with high $$$ rides. Well, multiplayer too (adder... entity xf... comet.... and another 6... god it's all so purdy)

It's called stupidity. Plain old stupidity. Sad but true.

Well if ya played the first witcher on any setting other than the first they became mandatory. Witcher 2 though? Even on dark mode you could skip using them if you were careful.

I skipped the first hence the giant hole of knowlege. only got the 2nd on sale on a whim last year and was blown away how good it was.

This is Battlefield: Pay-Day.
Of course. After David Goldfarb left Dice ones BF3 was finished, he made Pay-Day2 and it turned out to be a successful game.
Dice figured why be original when they can just copy someone else, then DLC the shit out of it.

Yet no one rags on Payday for obscene paid DLC.

Snipers? $ Machine guns? $ Knifes? $ Grenades? $ Weapon modifications? $

There is more $ in DLC than the game price.

Ok, so I downloaded this from TPB(yea sue me, already got burned by AC4 horrible PC port, and Uplay can suck a fat one) and lo and behold, the stuttering in this game makes it nearly unplayable. It seems it's the same type of v-sync issues from AC4 is here.

So yea, save your money.

Stuttering, huge mouse lag in menu, play one.
No stutter, smooth mouse in menu, play two.

Something fixed it self for me, runs great. Just not a very good game. Tried to be like GTA/Saints row, fell in the middle and is uninspired.

I've been using the same Weber 3-burner for about 10 years. They're easy to clean and fast to hook up.

Will be buying my weber this summer. Nothing but praise coming from friends/other owners. A little pricey ($450 locally for the Q300) but worth it not to re-buy a lower quality BBQ every 1-2 years.

Next stretch goal: money to lobby against the ability to sue kickstarters. Failing that an extra lawyer so Chris Roberts can ignore legal threats and vacation more often.

Golf article mentions every reason but cost and with people not making as much, especially the demographic they are targeting in the article. It should be the #1 reason.

$40 for the pitch and putt (plus rental) or nearly anything else you want to do for several hours and have money left over for food/other activities.

Turning it into soccer/other games will loose core players and not attract new ones.
