What do you miss the most about earlier times within APB?

Under RTW: The ability to choose whether or not to enter an ongoing mission as opp.

God what I wouldn't give for this feature. Give me a quick summary of the mission's current state so I can enter it with some measure of understanding...

Creme de la Crime - 5/10 with 1:30 remaining
Teammate 1, Teammate 2, Teammate 3
Opponent 1, Opponent 2, Opponent 3, Opponent 4

Very simple UI box that could pop up when the queue pops, with a simple yes/no acceptance like group and friend invites have. If you turn it down, you're simply dropped back to the end of the matchmaking queue to wait for the next mission pop. Easily avoid bad backup calls, bad teammates/opponents, etc.

While I obviously understand the appeal, its hard enough to get backup when you need it as is.

forget backup, a majority of players wouldn’t start a mission unless they were sure they could stomp their opp

 

say goodbye to playing apb without creating a group/clan for in-house missions

that was a g1 thing

I mean, I've been here since the second week of CBT, and that was never a thing. So maybe it was a thing during that first week, but at that point my statement still basically stands.

im pretty sure you couldnt use an osmaw out of vehicle windows in rtw or early g1 otherwise the jump out insta-fire mechanic wouldnt have become popular, but i could be wrong as i didnt play rtw

 

but there was a decent time frame under g1 where a blowtorch bug allowed the use of heavy weapons from vehicle windows, iirc it was several months

Oh, so you're talking about a bug introduced by Gamersfirst/Reloaded. Then it doesn't surprise me really, I've been on several haituses over the years.

I do recall a bug for a while that allowed me to use them or an alig out of the windows if I switched from a secondary to my main.

that may be what they remember.

This is why the feature was removed.  It was exploited to the point that RTW eventually said "enough!" and removed it in favor of the ready system.

They do, but it's FAR less frequent and almost all of the sounds were removed.  You never get the legendary "AOH GAWD" or any of the real screams anymore.  Now the only male sounds left are "oof", "UOGH", or "AGH".  What really sucks is not being able to hear other player's pain/death sounds.  Those were a great source of comedy.

Male still says "OH GOD" and i'm pretty sure litteraly nothing changed in that kind from OBT when I started to play.

There were a few different "oh god"s back in the day.  The way males say it now is more like "uuugh gahd", back then they also had ones where he was actually screaming it.  One of them was a really quick abrupt one that sounds like he was taken by surprise.  A lot of other screams have been removed too.  Some of them sounded really painful, and not just for the character but the voice actor's throat too.  All of the male sounds we have now are sounds you would make if you stub your toe.  It's definitely a lot different now.
