Sorry to all new players, or stat capped players planning on getting these in advance...

So after working out a single honor cost, I thought I'd look a bit more into the real cost of some honors.

secondchance.png - 1000 Revives.

Let's say you have a capped stat and no revive perks. 1000 x 75 = 75,000 / 25 = 3000 x 49,500 = 148,500,000 stats... missed out on.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

dontdropit.png - 10,000 busts.

Again on a capped stats no bust perks. 10,000 x 10 = 100,000 / 25 = 4000 x 49,500 = 198,000,000 stats... missed out on.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

goldbelt.png - All gold gym memberships.

Real cost: $307,500,000

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

loanshark.png - Borrow 500k from the loan shark.

400 points x $59,000 = $23,600,000 ....to borrow 500k?

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

tigerskin.png - 100 hunting skill.

...just don't do it lol

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

thehighlife.png - Buying a useless ship.

Real cost: $895,000,000

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

slowbomb.png - Setting off a DB.

Real cost: $16,000,000,000

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

energize.png - 250 energy refills

Real cost: $370,000,000

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

joyrider.png - 5,000 GTA's***

60 x 24 = 1440 / 5 = 288 /12 = 28 crimes a day if your on 24 hours a day and pass 100%. 5000/28 = 178, so in reality about 9/10 months lol



------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

1) revives = chance to get some cash So true, you miss a lot of stats but you get some cash
2) busts = great crime exp
3) this gyms = well, to get better stats you need to pay more, so a fair deal in my oppinion
4) loan shark = true, a bit pointless
5) hunting = after getting RPA travel honour, Im not going there anymore (I think)
6) Yacht = some will say its good to have +500 happiness, hard to say for me- no idea
7) DB = does it matter? I think everyone would love to have one
8) battery = refills are usefull both for revives and training, so you will get this honour one day anyway
9) GTA = it just looks nice Plus you get quite a few awards on the way for it

but nice work with counting up all the costs R+

For some people I guess there would be benefits that either offset the various types of cost, like cash for revives, or might just be worth the cost, like a DB. Or maybe even a benny for whatever they already love, like busting. But yeah most folks are going to pick and choose what they actually go after and this is a nice way to lay out the cost involved for folks that are considering what direction to travel. Good un.

How is it an "INVESTMENT"? What do you get out of say the 1000 revives honor except money which you would have to spend most of on xanax, refills and rehab(for all the xanax)? Oh and a worthless honor that doesn't impress people anymore

In faction, there's this thing called upgrade which reduce the energy needed to revive. Simply put, I use less energy to make money and helping my faction in warring.

And for the honor, I don't value the picture/emblem more than the usefulness of the merit itself. If you blame the merit for being useless, I say you should jog your thinking more. I need more merits, but the amount are so limited.

In Laymen terms, me use merits to upgrade bank interest and stuff.

Despite it being such an obvious one I'd never even considered the cost of energy refills being so high to reach that honour. Really interesting to see it all put in perspective like that.

Not possible if you are active and play the game, unless you are the man. Whats really sick is there are people that have it that has no clue they do.

Or it costs 25 energy per revive, and you get two merits for it. So you lose about 25mil stats per merit.

By bcfcespley [181564]
dontdropit.png - 10,000 busts.

Again on a capped stats no bust perks. 10,000 x 10 = 100,000 / 25 = 4000 x 49,500 = 198,000,000 stats... missed out on.


again, 5 energy per bust, and this time 10 merits... so you lose out on roughly 10mil stats per merit (although in my case, most of my busts were done to gain stats)

goldbelt.png - All gold gym memberships.

Real cost: $307,500,000


Meh, I unlocked only the gyms I needed as I went, which meant I skipped two of them, this honor cost me 70mil.

By bcfcespley [181564]loanshark.png - Borrow 500k from the loan shark.

400 points x $59,000 = $23,600,000 ....to borrow 500k?


This one, no argument lol.

By bcfcespley [181564]

...just don't do it lol


No argument again, except that you do get 3 merits... still nowhere near worth the time and effort involved

thehighlife.png - Buying a useless ship.

Real cost: $895,000,000


it only costs that much if you upgrade it yourself, and have no intention of reselling. Or you can just buy from the estate agent, get the honor, then re-sell the property and possibly even profit... Or do like a lot of people and just borrow a friend's for 10 seconds.

By bcfcespley [181564]slowbomb.png - Setting off a DB.

Real cost: $16,000,000,000


Doubt anyone does this for the honor, lol

By bcfcespley [181564]energize.png - 250 energy refills

Real cost: $370,000,000


Umm... if you don't refill anyway, you need to re-evaluate how you're playing the game.

First off, you suck at math lol. Simply put, you get 12 nerve an hour, 24 hours in a day, you can't do 28 twelve nerve crimes per day without using boosters.

But nonetheless, there's 15 GTA merits along the way to earning this, so how is that a waste? I'd say it's the best crimes to do for merits.

Only if it pays off in money terms.

OP: on your way to 5000 GTA's you will pick up aother 8 or 9 nerits.
So it's a pretty good deal actually.

well first a big "well done" for the time and energy spent on this research... and the an apology if i have missed the point of playing the game... the money is not real and the game is free to play, there is no time limit for playlife, the energy is free, the nerve is free and the social networking is free... good/bad choices have no real world consequences..so just enjoy the freedom to do things not allowed in it..

As stated a few posts above yours, there's actually 15 merits up to that point...

though speculating, i don't think tiger skin would equate to much more energy lost out then second chance if you planned for it, i would think if planned out well you could get it at maybe 150% of the projected cost of second chance, this would also take into consideration applicable hunting bonuses and even how travel time was approached, as well as energy stacking. granted like jj pointed out the cost for second chance could be reduced a great deal itself with planning, though with the other two merits before tiger skin as also highlighted by jj, it might be as worthwhile as a well planned second chance merit if the final conclusion was based on merits and not the honors them self.

a neat study!

so much talk about 'losing stats' while doing things. when are people gonna get it into their rather thick heads that its not all about battle stats, there are other stats too that people prefer.

blah blah blah lost x amount of stats doing 10k busts.... no, they gained 10k stats in the bust section... they lost nothing.
