@aLudidMind - Here's what GAMESHARQ said:

Looks just like the old Baller. What's so great about it?

As a quick response I just posted the comparison photo and bluntly stated: "Buy some damn glasses" My mistake as apparently people have become way too sensitive on these boards. Case and point:

A very small difference that in no way sets it apart from the original. So yeah, being a dick about someone saying it looks exactly like it when it "only" looks almost exactly like it only serves to humiliate yourself more than it humiliates them.

So...

 

Right, an opinion being popular doesn't make it correct... The differences may be noticeable when you actually start looking at them, but they are in fairly indistinguishable from a distance because the differences are relatively minor.

...

Right, an opinion being popular doesn't make it correct.

Take a look at the photos above. Yes they are very similar, they're based on the same car so of course they're going to be very similar. But they are different. The front fascia has been redesigned, all of the trim is now in carbon fiber, the side skirts have been altered and the rear fascia has also been redesigned. So saying that the differences are very small and in no way set the LE apart from the original is wrong. It's not an opinion that they're different, it's a fact. Period.

 

I don't need to try, you're doing it all for me. As for your "are people just being stupid" question, you tell me. You're the one being immature for a fairly stupid reason.

Says the one who is being blindly unobservant and trying to argue that there are no distinct differences between the LE and the original when there clearly are. It is being stupid. And don't pull the immaturity card on me. Immature for saying "buy some damn glasses" I mean are you kidding me? You don't even know if I was being serious. I don't know what's happened to this board but as soon as the update launched yesterday, people have been acting stupid. I've honestly had it up to here with the bullsh*t.

Yeah I totally humiliated myself. That's why people like my comment. I wasn't trying to humiliate him I was just baffled by his statement. I mean did he really expect a completely new Baller because I sure didn't. There are a few distinct aesthetic differences so to claim that there isn't is pure ridiculousness.

 

Try harder next time. :^:

 

Is there something in the air today or are people just being stupid?

 

Right, an opinion being popular doesn't make it correct. If you're going to try and put someone's intelligence down, you may want to start avoiding logical fallacies. The differences may be noticeable when you actually start looking at them, but they are in fairly indistinguishable from a distance because the differences are relatively minor. The difference between the Stinger and the Stinger GT, that's distinct. The Ballers, not so much.

Another car I'm really surprised I ended up loving - I have my SWB in a custom crew color dark, lava-ish orange with a cream interior and black wheels - it sounds like an odd combo, but honestly it really works with all the carbon the car has - that chrome "strip" on the side always kept me away from the regular Baller, IMO it doesn't fit the car - but now that it's in carbon, I have no issue with it. That combined with the blacked out grille, more aggressive styling and performance (finally an SUV I love to take to the city AND off-roading) honestly make this one of my favourite cars from this DLC. Second favourite actually, after the Schafter V12. These two are the cars I expected to just ignore, I wasn't really planning on buying either of them - but I'm glad I did, because this new Baller and the Schafter are just amazing. Rockstar did a really great job with them. This amazing beast is definitely a keeper.

 

Also, can I just say - people saying "Ballers are for selling, not for owning dumbasses hurrrdurrr" makes me so frustrated. There are cars worth 17k and even more on the streets now on current gen, so if you are still selling Ballers for a pathetic 9000, you're the dumbass.

 

/I'll post pics another day! Too busy enjoying the update.

More tards on an appreciation thread. I'm probably going to buy one later. Tried out my buddies and was impressed with the performance (near Huntley) and the engine note as well as the fit and finish.

I've been wanting something armored for my second character for quite some time now, and this just fit the bill perfectly.

I don't know what's happened to this board but as soon as the update launched yesterday, people have been acting stupid. I've honestly had it up to here with the bullsh*t.

It's hardly a matter of me or this board being "too sensitive". It's the fact that you're simply being immature, the fact you opt to jump to the conclusion of "people are too sensitive" as opposed to understanding that all you really need to do is post the pictures you just did and explain shows that. If you think calling someone blind rather than answering their question on how the two are different isn't immature and that is considered civil to you, then that just proves me right. Simply put, you won't get anywhere in life if you speak to everyone who asks you a question in that way. There's a difference between calling you out for not being civil and being overly sensitive. And guess what...

 

Side view- Looks the same with exception of the rear visor. Insignificant and very slight difference.

 

Rear view- Different tailpipe, the black stripe wraps, and the bumper is barely different. Again, insignificant and very slight difference.

 

Front view- Slightly different bumper, nothing else. Oh, look! Another insignificant and very slight difference!

 

I know the differences, kid. That's why I stated they're minor at best and unnoticeable to anyone not specifically looking for the differences. I never said they were no differences, I said they were barely different. The pictures you provided did nothing but prove me right.

 

Whether I knew you were being serious or not is irrelevant. You sounded serious. If you weren't, then you need to learn how to communicate better. It's on you, not me. And if someone saying that they don't see the differences and plainly asking "what's the difference", is enough to set you off then you need to get off the internet because there's far more infuriating things than that online.

I might actually get one after seeing this. I've toyed with getting a regular Baller for ages now, but with the added bonus of armour I think I'll go ahead and get one. I've seen an Evoque in person in a very similar colour to that and loved it.

The new ones are faster and have better acceleration as well.

Good. I really admire what Rockstar has done with this pack. Adding back the beloved Cognoscentis and souping up the Schafter and Baller - both cars I loved but wanted to look a bit meaner and go a bit faster. Well done, R*.

I should add, I didn't get the armored version. The armored one is a touch slower than the original. Forgot to mention that, sorry lol.

I don't know but I just think they should have added door pillars for the rear doors of the LWB Baller like how they did with the Schafter LWB. But they probably didn't because it would have copied the actual RR LWB

It has a recycled sound from the Tornado/Bullet and sounds supercharged.

Without EMS upgrades it's very quiet though.

Best thing about this update is the same cars in game are tweaked and people are loving them, treating them as new cars. I hope R* are using this update to see if there is a demand for upgrades on current cars that already exist in game and working on a garage update that introduces extra mods for the main cars in game and cars that need some extra love like the exemplar.

 

Next best thing is the various 4 door car options available and no longer have to drive a kuruma. Love it when everyone hops in one car for a mission

This is exactly what i'm hoping. To be honest I was kind of surprised we didn't get an armoured and/or LWB versions of the patriot.

Which Baller LE is actually better?? Unarmored or Armored? If we talk about armor then I would just roll out the insurgent for that.

 

The armored version looks like it has explosive reactive armor on the doors which were used for tanks

Alright, bought one earlier tonight and took a few pics. Bought the armored Baller LE. I tested my buddies non armoured version and can say that the armoured version has a bit more understeer and is a hair slower. But, the marginal protection it offers is worth it for me. Many times as your driving by people will try to kill you, It'll protect you from that for a while. If the windows break, just go and get it repaired. Chased down two griefers in a verlier earlier and didn't take a scratch. Passenger was firing at me the whole time didnt penetrate the windshield. Splash damage from his sticky rocked me around but didn't explode the vehicle (It can tank 1 explosive). Ended up pitting them into a wall, stopping my vehicle against the passenger side, getting out and gave em them pump shotgun to the face. As I said before I love how it looks and sounds with the updated little stuff. Im not sold on my choice of trim colour yet though, what do you guys think?

 

 

 

Including a pic of a buddies LWB version, to me it just seems a bit off and not to my liking but throwing up the pic in case anyone wanted to see another LWB.

Yeah, but then it's basically the same as the old one. Being able to take an explosive sets the new armoured cars apart from the others.
