Getting into semantics, huh?

Of course, since you don't seem to know the meaning behind the vocabulary you are using..

The issue is still that the upsides of motorbikes are offset in quantity by their downsides. The cars already do most things the bikes do, but better.

The issue is adding more choices and life to the game, even if it means handicapped-gameplay or limiting it to showing off designs (it has already been done to some mods and weapons people perceive as sub-par to meta). Again, I have already told you to refrain from limiting APB to the best possible ways to win a match. You may only run around with the most dominant loadouts if you so wish. Nobody is stopping you regardless..

And hypothetical situations. Sure, let's play that too.

It intrigues me that you actually said that, considering that your arguments were all based on your own shortcomings in situational awareness and lack of basic driving skills..

Not all cars have cargo capacity - and this is why the meta consists of Pioneer, Espacio, Vegas 4x4 (and slightly less so Jericho and Bishada). If I need cargo capacity or a mobile wall, I can switch to a Pioneer. If I need speed, I can switch to a Vegas. And I could switch to a bike... if I wanted to get spun out and killed by any car at all that rams into me?

The meta is the meta, but once again, Players DO STILL drive other vehicles such as the previously mentioned Packer Vaquero. Simply because they WOULD LIKE TO DO SO. If you are a meta-Player who simply refrains from variety, that is your own thing.. Plus, nobody is forcing you to play with things that puts you at a disadvantage. If you can't handle the heat, you are more than welcome to stick to your beloved meta.

And the lack of a Mobile Spawn Point or a Mobile Radar Tower really starts to hurt the longer you're in the mission.

1 » You are assuming that not a single player in the team has a car with a mobile spawner..

2 » As I have already told you, APB allows for changes to be made mid-mission. Please refrain from trying to push a false argument forward. For someone such as yourself who appears to be the King of meta, I do not honestly believe that you are incapable of switching stuff on the fly....

Honestly thought I could have a civil conversation here, but oh well - apparently any kind of disagreement with someone else on this forum is interpreted as a direct attack that also requires an ad personam response. Sure, two can play that game.

Proper, constructive disagreement is the way to go. Using arguments that portray your own laziness and shortcomings as a player, in addition to a harsh tone & vocabulary that you do not understand half of is not.. Perhaps revise yourself before taking it out on others.

This point in particular had nothing to do with one's driving skills. It's a fact that motorcycles are lighter and less durable than cars. Getting hit by a car while you're on a bike will either toss you off, make you lose control, or outright smash you to pieces.

No... just no.. You have clearly said and I quote: "Not to mention that you'd be pretty much exposing yourself to almost instant death if you somehow end up hitting a wall head-first or fall off at a high speed"... This has nothing to do with one's driving skills, hmmm? Okay...…………..

Except the claim was substantiated. Their low healthpool, small physical size and practically nonexistant cargo capacity make them only good for player transportation and no other role. You would have known that if you had actually read my post in its entirety and considered my stance instead of trying to pick for things you could misconstrue.

You are advising me to read and consider your stance when you don't read yourself nor considered mine's, Sir... I have clearly stated and I quote from myself: "APB isn't just about having the best methods to win a match and shouldn't be viewed as such. It is well-known that APB's selling point is its customization and freedom. Do not constraint Players to play the game in the easiest/cheapest ways possible to win".

 

Please…. read before you act...

Currently, the highest top speed in APB is limited by the engine (see: the fastest car, Vegas G20, is only so fast that it lets the map load in as it moves), which means that if motorcycles were to be added in the current state of things, they would still be on par with the high-end cars, speed-wise.

 

If the Engine Upgrade will allow for higher top speeds, then perhaps motorcycles would be a fun little experiment. The worst that could happen is that they end up not being used by anyone due to their shortcomings.

If you actually read yourself, you'd see that my argument was about acceleration and navigation that rivals small cars.. I did not speak about top speed.. You'd also have known that I don't care about your beloved meta..

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

If you wish to have a fruitful yet civil discussion, I encourage you to work towards it starting from yourself..

So the best thing you can do is nitpick the choice of words. Gotcha, duly noted.

"Clearly the only reason he is disagreeing with me is because he is a tryhard who just wants to win every match". Try again.

I know, right? It's also intriguing how you used the exact same ad personam bullshoot twice, accusing me of being unable to drive in APB!

Ad personam again. Try to avoid doing that in the future if you want to claim any moral higher ground.

The meta exists whether you like it or not. The choice of equipment is up to every player, but these are the meta options for a reason - versatility.

Pot calling the kettle black much?

Yes. The word "somehow" involves scenarios influenced by other players' actions. It's not that hard of a concept to comprehend, though if you wish to argue semantics again, be my guest. You do seem to have an affinity for it.

"I know better what I meant AND what you meant". Also, cute ad personam at the end there. That's how many times in one post again?

Wow! It's almost as if the speed at which both vehicles are moving (i.e. equal or different) is not a factor in physical confrontations of cars and bikes! /s

Pot calling the kettle black again.

 

And the cycle of pettiness of both of us trying to have the last word continues... :]

Unless you wanna break the cycle and just drop it here. Be my guest - I'm only responding because you are.

Your trollish behavior was obvious from the start

"you say things I disagree with, therefore you're a troll".

unless your IQ is indeed below average.

Ad personam.

I have given you enough time as is, thanks for the laughs.

"I am so totally beyond this! I don't care about your opinion! and to show how much I don't care, I'll care enough about my image to throw in a petty insult at the end".

 

All things considered, it was a pleasant altercation. Now hopefully the thread can return to its usual form.

I still want a motorcycle in game so I can practice jumping on peoples heads

 

You can already jump on people's heads? What does a motorcycle have to do with this? I'm confused.

I'd love to try that just like  I used to with rockets and a 4x4

I want a loiter emote. Since pedestrians already do that from time to time it should not be too difficult to add.
