Makes me wonder how intoxicated they must've been to think a 6.00 imaginary K/D IRL was worth 6 years in prison.

They're kind of making me tired of the game again. I've been playing a bit more lately. Some good moments and fights, but these things are just everywhere, gets old.

 

I might wait for next DLC before playing a lot again, maybe these will be less of a pest by then if we're lucky.

That thing would have to be as powerful, if not more powerful, as the MK2 itself then.

I don't think that a counter is the best solution in this case. Anything that was amazingly designed to deal with Broomsticks would undoubtedly be ruthlessly OP against other things. 

 

Case in point: The Hydra was a griefer's dream, so Rockstar's solution was not to nerf the explosive cannon... but to (admittedly, in a roundabout way) bring explosive snipers into the mix as a useful tool against them. Never mind that the explosive sniper would also be deadly against civilian aircraft... and 99% of ground vehicles... and generally anything that was usually blown up by a Hydra in the first place. 

 

The only thing that would be a substitute to a proper Broomstick nerf / rebalance (which is the ideal solution IMO) but which wouldn't ruin everyone's fun is something like an 'ejection missile'. A step up from the homing launcher, the projectile fired would have the same speed / tracking as something like a Ruiner2K missile to keep up with the mosquito-like reflexes of the hated machines, and upon impact would explode in a similar manner to the Up'N'Atomiser. No damage to the target vehicle beyond a kinetic thump in a random direction, but it would throw the rider / pilot out of their seat if (and only if) they don't have a roof / canopy above their head. 

 

That would mean that the 'ejection missile' wouldn't throw drivers out of most vehicles (apart from convertibles, maybe?), but motorcycles would be fairly susceptible to its use. And only the Duster and Microlight would have pilots able to be thrown out, again maybe. 

 

But just spitballing in any case. A nerf would be my preferred option at the end of the day.

Yeah kinetic missiles would be cool, but you just know that if any vehicle wanted to use them they would have to replace stock armanents. For people on the ground it might work, but it's kind of ridiculous to have to design a new weapon that's really only going to counter one type of vehicle, assuming it even works well enough. 

 

They've had no problem in the past nerfing vehicles well after people bought and used them, like the rhino tank.

I hate this thing. I really do.

 

I'm at a high level, with a very high K/D (non-griefing), and I am very good at this game. Why the f*ck is it okay that a level 48 can come and destroy my cargo by pushing 1 button? This thing is so insanely overpowered and I really hope something changes, even though it won't. Better yet, I hope I get banned from GTA after my latest submission on their feedback page: "f*ck YOU ALL FOR WHAT YOU HAVE DONE WITH THIS STUPID MOTORCYCLE." f*ck this stupid f*cking game and this stupid f*cking bike. I wish I could fist fight every single person who okay-ed this thing.

I sent them a nasty letter on their feedback page about the God mode glitch.

 

Their response? Just report the players using it.

 

Guess what? You can't even report in Bad Sport.

Ha! Not like it matters anyways, reporting a player does nothing.

 

Next time, report the God mode glitch and say players are using it to make money. That'll make 'em take action.

 

I apologize for my drunken rant last night, but I really, really hate this thing.

It's so stupid that a brand new player can get one.  I actually ran into a level 40 flying around on one but he was cool and helped me with NC missions so I added him and then we did Client Missions.  He was great and helpful.  So I asked him if he needed help selling.  He DIDN'T have any businesses.  Only a NC, a Terrorbyte and an OP MK II.  That is the problem....

Ironically enough the bad sport system encourages you to blow up cargo vehicles if you love free roam killing. Instead of destroying some random persons car that they can get back with a phone call and risk getting bad sport penalties and paying insurance, you're better off destroying vehicles that you know will only reward you for destroying them (however small). And if you're protecting your cargo, you're penalized for wrecking weaponized PV's in self defense. 

 

¯\_(ツ)_/¯

I’ve been thinking about this.  Athens get thrown into bad sport for playing the game against people who choose to play.  Personal vehicles get destroyed.  Part of what is going on.  When I’m in free roam of course I get blown up, like everyone else.  If I want to play I play, if not I go passive or I change lobbies or I get my own lobby.  Why should someone be penalized for playing the game the way it was intended.  He’s using the vehicles they created, he not cheating

That's sh*t mate. I'm down for a month next time I go there, and I do everything I can to keep my eye on that "Clean Player / Dodgy Player" status. If I end up there again, I'm quitting for good.

 

The Bad Sport system is severely f*cked up. I hate it more than anything else in this game. Typically some ghosty faced sweat on his OP 2 will see me on mine and charge my way hoping to stroke his epeen with a cheap kill of a high rank. Because the imbecile doesn't chaff in time he ends up firing wayward rockets at me because I have chaffed, and seconds later ends up dead himself (or EWO or hurls himself off, take your pick) But because I have just defended myself I am the Bad Sport. It's the most perverse, upside down logic known to man.

Bad Sport is stupid. It punishes players for playing the game exactly as it is laid out and designed. Ridiculous. Bad sport has no place in a game like this, ESPECIALLY after these past few updates that have been focused on blowing sh*t up. I just don't get their logic. Basically, Rockstar encourages you to blow up other people's cars, but also condemns it at the same time. Which one is it, Rockstar? Then you get BS for defending yourself. We have a ton of explosives at our disposable, but we can't even use them in self-defense?

 

It's a stupid design to ban people from enjoying the game for real life 2 months or more! The real cheaters and glitchers don't get BS, and that's ridiculous. For the races, it seems they prefer the idiots who stay in the race, driving backwards around the track, than just quitting. This system encourages them to cause trouble. Ruining other people's races by driving backwards is cheating and ruins other people's experiences, yet you're NOT penalised for doing that. You're better off leaving the race, but you get penalised for that. You see how illogical this system is? This system makes no sense, like, at all. In a game where you are meant to blow sh*t up, especially when given a vast collection of lethal weaponry, you are punished for blowing up someone's car? They can just get it back in less than a minute, and I pay for the insurance. Why give us a Hydra or Ruiner 2000 if we can't even use it? Getting reported gets you bad sport points, too, which is just plain stupid. I guess Rockstar forgot that a lot of butthurt players tend to do false reports. Some players intentionally report you when they see you're a dodgy player just so they can troll you and put you into a bad sport lobby.

 

If you blow up someone's car, even if it's in self-defense and it's a weaponized car, you get slapped with BS points. But you can f*ck up someone's grind for 2k without any BS points, cuz logic. I've never understood why blowing up cars gets you in bad sport. It's not like it's a massive inconvenience for players when you do. I think it's quite funny when someone blow up my car and they get a 10k to 20k+ bill, and all I do is phone my insurance for a new shiny one. It saves me going to the mod shop or garage to get the dents taken out. And in every other area of the game, you are rewarded for being an annoyance to other players. Destroying a $1,000,000 delivery is encouraged. Blowing up a $1,000+ car is a crime. It just doesn't make any sense at all.

Blow up someone’s full warehouse of special crates with the Orbital Cannon and then glitch out of the lobby so it’s free and you’re golden with Rockstar.  But blow up someone’s vehicle who is trying to blow you up and to bad sport you go.  

 

Question, can you add a 2nd character or does he go to bad sport too?

This abomination of a vehicle single handely killed my will to play the game.

 

It's gotten to the point that even the self righteous "grinders" defend the Oppresor Mk II and don't want it nerfed in any way or capacity because "mUh gRiNdInG tOoL!!1".

 

Places like r/gtaonline are filled with people moaning about the Oppresor Mk II yet when someone dares to even suggest a way to balance the damn bike, they get mad and tell you "iTs nOt gOiNg tO gEt nErFeD", "iF u DoNt LiKe iT dOnT pLaY iT", "gO pLaY miNecRafT", "SoLo pUbLiC sEsSiOn" or similar idiotic nonsense.

 

I seriously hope that this thing gets nerfed into oblivion just to see the tears of the community that can't live without their braindead easy kills or crate runs or whatever.

I hate them just to point out, but i do own one and use it to travel around. Although it is quick, i feel sometimes i can get places just as fast on my Hakoucho Drag/vigilante. Other than the obvious air advantage for certain locations where the road is still a straight direct route i actually think the speed of it may be an allusion

Can I just point out that the MkII has been buffed TWICE hidden behind a "fix".

 

Its super speed glitch was fixed but they added a boost mode to it. When it was released it was fine. 80MPH in the air and 120MPH on the ground. Remove all its glitches but leave its max speeds alone, they have buffed it to the pont where it can keep up with real aircraft.

Everything has been made redundant by this vehicle.

It is idiot proof. Like I said above it's been buffed twice in two separate updates. R* has actively sought to make it the single best vehicle in the game.

Best is a debatable statement. But I will give you that this abomination is probably the most versatile vehicle in gta. For better or worse that is how it's been integrated. I'd still never own one though, I'm the rarer player that still prefers to drive everywhere even if flying would make the journey quicker.

Give it Jetpack missiles. Easy to dodge and low rate of fire but still good for grinding. A Deluxo could easily stop them that way and the Deluxo is slow and cooldown c*cked so it isn't half as bad.

I agree that "best" is subjective but name one vehicle without saying the Fully Loaded Ruiner that can beat the MkII with equally skilled drivers? At most you can tit-for-tat it.
