    Missions that require travel just became the latest assignments to add to my reject list.
    While they do offer a generous amount of credits, the travel system is so poor and outdated that it isn't worth the time or energy to pursue if they go wrong.

    Interested to know if anyone else has come to the same conclusion? Also what other missions do you routinely reject if they show up?

    I accept every mission and I complete every mission regardless to what it is. I think I’ve failed 3 or 4 total since they where released.


    The benefit of mission credits far outweighs the travel time in my opinion. I think you should do every mission you possibly can. The weapon mods, chance for books and the costs of these are quite high. You could be a few hundred credits short when that expensive mod or book you’ve been waiting for comes up. Would you take the chance? :-)

    I also reject the casino on top of the mugging contracts to the point where they no longer appear in my mission feed.

    I stopped flying about two weeks after I got to level 15. Really, really hate it :-) Main reason to start trading. 

    Maybe someday I'll go for the merits and start doing those missions too :)

    I reject the casino missions only. Travel missions have always worked out well for me and I get to stock up on flowers and plushies while Im there.

    Were you expecting a picture or something?

    Casino missions are Roulette, Craps and Slots. Easy and not too high stakes.

    After they fixed the Red Face (Trout finishing hits) and Casino missions I do them all as well.

    As for travelling you can make money, work on honor bars, and complete your mission. Yes it's boring, but at least double the reason to suffer the boredom when you add a mission on.

    I accept all bar the hitting body parts ones, which I decline to make way for more on new day.

    Flying ones suit me as I'm nearing completion of the last flying merit, so I'm airborne most of the time anyway.

    Casino missions are Roulette, Craps and Slots. Easy and not too high stakes.
    Casino can be other areas too, such as Keno and Blackjack. It just depends on what Duke tells you to do. Winning $10M in each is usually not too hard, though at times I do lose millions in the process. 

    The travel mission targets are usually easier than the targets in Torn, I think I've maybe had to try twice once?

    I love overseas mission, the target usually holds mug-worthy amount of money. Additional profit while running plushies/flowers! $$$$$

    i usually "hack" those ones, basically just ask a friend to place a 200k bounty on someone and send them 300k and claim it, losing 100k but getting the merit in 1 singular attack, also sometimes the cash reward is decent and it only ends up costing me 50k total so that's nice

    and i only reject travelling missions, only because I am a trader and the possibility of losing customers/trade opportunities is not worth the 60 credits IMO, even then if its only somewhere like Caymans or Mexico i might accept it since its such a short trip i can just do it right before i go to sleep

    I didnt mind flying + i always want to do all my missions for the credits and the possibility of extremely valuable item rewards.

    I did however often have fun with stocks in flight. as it is I am quite bored of it but still have to do it for my income I just wish they would accept the suggestion of adding some In-flight things, like online gambling - reintroduce the stocks (it really harmed only poorer people who HAVE to travel to earn not the rich sitting on billions and every block benefit) or something new as a time killer between arrivals.

    All missions are dumb and boring, they are the same over and over!

    The biggest challenge is to get the target before someone else take them out.

    Mission targets should at least have "Revive block" turned off automatically.

    I reject casino missions, they're just impossible to end . I also reject what i call mystery missions, those where you don't know exactly who you're going to have to kill : usually you get surprised with a lev 90 5000+ days old and inactive since 120 days, yeah surely not gonna waste E on that one !
