The APB team is getting into the holiday spirit by bringing back the Elves from last year’s Elf-Inflicted Wounds, but don’t go shooting them because this time they’re contacts!

Players can also enjoy festive weapon skins, titles, and clothing – all of which can be earned by completing exciting missions. And what winter celebration would be complete without a modified grenade launcher? (Hint – think snowballs…)

If that weren’t enough, beginning the 13th of December, the 12 Days of Gift-mas event will reward players who buy items from the Armas Marketplace with a surprise Credit Counter Gift that will be different each day.

This festive release follows November’s well-received update of APBR to version 1.10, which introduced car surfing, new weapons and contacts, and even more character modifications.

G1's idea of holiday spirit : Why spend money on gifts for family and friends when you can spend it all on "surprise" credit counter rewards.

Next you will find out its 30 day trial weapons.

Unless I am told what kind of items and the duration of items in the "suprise" counter I won't spend a dime.

I SEE WHAT G1 DID THERE, they had so many promotions and sales just before this so that everyone would've bought everything they needed. Now if they want the new counter rewards they will have to maybe buy other crap they don't want.

Reloaded have answered my hopes with the Enforcer Armor pack. However these still stand:
- Enforcer Parka with hood down
- Access to the Radio back pack

Do you expect them to make a special Xmas-credit-counter on Halloween?

You guys always find something to complain about. Just f**cking enjoy the event. No one forces you to spend money

Err the comparison is exactly the same. No one forces you to do anything, but the situation is setup to make you do what they want. I just flamed so badly you had to reply and hors back at me.

If I posted a link for you to click that said you could win $1,000,000 with no strings attached, would you do it?

Next you will be telling gambling and drug addicts that no one forces them to be addicts.

Sweet a Snowman head :D Is the new skin is all red ? It'll would be nice to get a "candy cane" skin :P

Also, I think the elves as contact is more fair for everyone than random elves running around in districts.

:doh2: According to you it would be exactly the same when i'd kill someone. No one forces me but i still do it, right?.
Posting on the forum is free, I dont get anything, i dont pay anything, I dont loose anything when i dont post. But you talk like a freak that has to buy anything form Amars, you talk like a kid who cries when he cant get something he wanted. I dont care whether you buy something but your QQing doesnt make it better and only disturbs the atmosphere in this thread. You try to turn this thread to a QQ-thread from the very first page.

And that last sentence...i cant find any connection to what i/you said before :huh:. Nvm I wont bother to discuss anything with ignorant ppl like you. Flame in another thread if you want

LOL You still haven't fixed that bug I see.

Notice Gumball's beard is sticking through the snowball head. My beard does the same on the pumpkin hat, and my desert scarf mask when I turn my head a certain way.

You don't see it? There's FOUR Gumballs you should

BTW where's the 40% off sale. Use to be 100% G1C rebate, use to be larger sales, now nothing? Well good I should
save my money

Oh well new content, I hope I have time to unlock it. (I'll be working a lot, I hope I can get them). Snow ball launcher sounds funny

But it's the point i'm trying to make.

When G1 going to bring something of their own into game? Rather than milking players?

You realize Reloaded Productions, the team that works on APB currently, is mostly composed of the original team that worked on the old APB? G1 is just a publisher.

Looks like a nice idea! People complained about "missing on the elfs" last year and it looks like you guys listened. Thats great. Can we expect a more detailed post or even blog post about it? I'm just curious. :partyfest:

I have to agree with Gobbers, though. Making the event possible to complete within a timeframe through contacts is an improvement over the (for you) time consuming online time and (for us) inconvenient experience last year.

I just hope we have plenty of time to complete them. With my luck with Opp and the current issues with Spawns and the Servers crashing, time might be some people's enemies. I know I'll be working over the break as well giving me less time
