Which reminded me to ask. What sort of changes did Nexon make to Warrock after they got a hold of it?

According to some, heroic deaths are admirable things. (Generally those who don't have to do it. Politicians and writers spring to mind.) I've never been convinced by this argument, mainly because, no matter how cool, stylish, composed, unflappable, manly, or defiant you are, at the end of the day you're also dead. Which is a little too permanent for my liking.

There are less lags (at least for Europeans); vote kick in FFA; hackshield has been updated to version "pro"; weekly bans; clan system (since 24th october) + new content and many new weapons ofc. They said they're working on frame lags fix but the time will show..

Overall, they run things differently over there. Not to mention it appears as if they like to hire people to run the game with the English skills of a 15 year old, which to say the least is quite annoying.
I wasn't expecting a clan system from them though. I have to give it to them, they seem like they are more productive compared to G1.

No he's not. I'm pretty sure he's given up on the game, as most of us have.

In that case it would be more like Team Fortress 2, since that had quite a few fun elements :P

Why is G1 adding new games as a "second publisher"? Why won't they just buy a license for publishing a new game? I mean these new games supported by G1 like War INC.; MNC and premiered today - World Of Battles? Are they even getting any profit from it?...

They will most likely get a small profit if the payment for those games are done through the G1 marketplace, however to which extend none know other than those in G1 marketing.

If I am correct, they have been in the past solely publishing games licensed by developers (WR, KOL, GE...).

Now they seem to innovate in a new direction to offer games that G1/Reloaded wholly developed (Hailan Rising), purchased and redeveloped (APB:R, Taikodom, Fallen Earth) and distributed in partnership with the developers (War Inc., SMNC, WoB).

One of the benefits I see to distribute games like War Inc. is the exposure. "War Inc." on Google puts G1 on the first page, there are links to G1 on the official websites, the communities talk about G1 on their forums, etc...

I'm pretty sure this whole hosting games like War Inc. thing has existed for a while now (under the name K2 Connect or similar), but probably only got some real traction after G1 established itself as something long-running and stable as a whole.

They didn't have a development team in the past which hindered their ability to provide for their customers (War Rock), leading to quite a few problems aside from some of the other ones that developed later on. Following the Reloaded Games merger they have their own in-house dev team which is doing wonders for APB:R's ability to implement community feedback directly rather than acting as a middleman between the (largely English speaking) community and the former (largely Asian - leading to language barriers and other obstacles) licensed developers.

The way they're going now is an interesting path to take and I'm curious to see how it pans out in the long run.

I just wish that there would be some FPS in the G1 catalogue once more, I tried APB but it isn't really the spirit of FPS as I see it and the other two are just cross provider promotions and not really G1 games. I do play MNC, the original one and not the F2P one once a while, but that is over Steam when I need to do something other than the usual games.

Guess only time will tell if they get something which will blow me away once more.

I think the same goes for most of us. The demand for a G1 FPS is there, will they deliver?

Depends a lot on if they want to get one or not, I was thinking that the APB crew might be somewhat available for making one on the side, now that APB seems to be stabilised. It would after all be a shame to let them just be a maintenance crew :P

Reloaded Games is already a pretty small team and they have their hands overflowing past full with APB:R work. There's no way they can get another entire new game made from scratch and they're far from doing simply maintenance work.

Well first you say everything goes smoothly over there and then you say that they are overburdened :P I still think that they could do with a pet FPS project over there ;)

It can still run smoothly with people hard at work over there. I think the point is that they already have their hands full making it run smooth, so adding another FPS to develop from scratch would be quite the burden.

What he said.

It's running much more smoothly than War Rock ever did when it comes to patches and support/community interaction (with implementation). That said, the game does have its rougher patches but all in all it's going along quite well.

But it would also give them new ideas at the same time, see it more as a sandbox which might become a game, but will provide things there can alter their current game at the same time.

Then again it would require a new game engine, since the FPS part in APB is somewhat sluggish, meaning that the engine from there wouldn't be optimal for it.

Actually, Unreal Engine was purpose-built for Unreal Tournament and small-scale arena/map-based FPS games. It's APB that's ill-fitted to the engine, with its large city maps and countless server-side entities to track and manage (boxes, barrels, Living City with cars/civilians/prop interactions/pathfinding/reactions, player/item tracking, the massive amount of customizations on players/cars/sprays, etc.), giving us some of the persistent performance issues we have.

That one must be muted or something, not a single peep from that one.

"Slipping into the dark recess of the mind one falls deeply into the core of all terrors as it can only rest within,
so dance on the edge of madness as the misery spread through the empty void of the life which can be felt,
no more dreams of purity as innocence is lost on the altar dripping with the blood of lost youth spend in pain,
finally a light within as the raven cry in frustration against the slow decline of humanity in a world of hunger."

Actually, those are the FA-MAS boxes that they sold for about 100$ back in early 2010.

One of the reasons I was glad I caved and picked up a retail box early on, when they were only ~$30. Even if you didn't like the weapon, the 8th slot items and premium made it worth it. Plus it's never a bad thing to have an extra weapon when you're running low on ammo.

It is called a toilet booth, that is the only place they have their own office for a while :P Other than that they most likely sit in small cubicles still.
