    Just wishful thinking, since I doubt they plan on making any new content for the game ( not a criticism , just a realization).

    BUT wouldn't it be awesome to have a kart racing mode in multiplayer? Obviously speeds would have to be leveled out between the classes, but a track could consist of racing for a distance and then have barriers pop up and everyone could run around shooting for a bit before hitting the track again.

    Think the Fall of Iacon level in WFC.

    Deaths would penalize your overall time. And kills would subtract from your time.

    This is a bit too ambitious for FOC I realize, but who knows... maybe in the next installment.

    I like the idea! Maybe just scouts for this gametype though, just to even it out.

    Probably not going to happen, but sounds fun.

    Maybe you should try making a race private game with friends? Laps arounds Array or Convoy with all Infiltrators? Would be interesting.

    KART racing, no.
    Vehicle mode racing, hell yeah.

    I've had an idea floating around in my mind where each class can participate and their abilities can be used for special shortcuts or power ups, like using the Flak Shield as a key, or Whirlwind to wind up a door pulley, or a Sentry firing a special beam that unlocks a door, stuff like that.

    Now I got the image of Megatron stuffed into a little cart with his arms crammed together on the steering wheel in my head.

    I meant Kart Racing as the genre of games it would mimic. Not actually shoving bots into go karts...

    Depends on what you mean IMO. Maybe 'balanced', but just giving them all the same speeds would destroy class diversity, or at least in that aspect.

    Well I was thinking you could have same speed but different routes to be taken. Such as Jets can break off vertically, Small tunnels that trucks couldnt fit into could be a infiltrator class route, Tanks could have blockades only they could blast. And trucks, well... I guess they get the boring end of the stick lol. Unless they could be the only ones with a boost ability to make jumps.

    That could work. But IMO... the same speed thing don't make much sense. It could work like Mario Kart. Heavy vehicles(tanks) start off slow, but have the fastest top speed. Light vehicles(cars) could have the best acceleration, but have the lowest top speed. The mediums(trucks, and planes I suppose) could just be in the middle for everything.

    Either way, the tracks would need to be built with planes in mind, since they could fly past almost every ground obstacle.

    Or they just couldn't be included.
    Bringing a jet to a car race is like bringing a tank to a pillow fight.
    They just can't be accommodated.

    Making FoC have a karting mode is like buying a really expensive golden ring then melting it down to create a golden butt plug.

    Oh come on undead, You could spend all your free time playing it and be number 1 on the leaderboards :D 

    I Just thought it would be cool to have a mode that made more use of vehicle forms than "weapon no.3" and run away slightly faster.
