We're going to be shutting down the Refer A friend beta.  No new referrals will be allowed at this time, any existing referrals will need to be completed by September 18th 11:59 PM CDT.

Aw, boo! Well, the free stuff was nice and got a handful of friends to try the game at least during it. 


Excited to see potential changes, and the possible re-launch? ;o

Think he's one of those people around during the CBT/OBT times, game played like a finished product but was stilled labeled Beta.

You can't call things "beta" anymore, you have to use the term "early access".  :Ha Ha Ha:

Well yeah, that's to be expected.

 

Still, anyone looking to RaF as a means of relative easy access to the Vegas 4x4 can kiss that option buh-bye.

 

If ya don't have it by now, get ready with that wallet......

Out of interest, what was the decision to close this down now? It's not being used as much as expected? There was no-one working on it anymore and it was abandoned?

 

I think a few of us would love to know what finally caused this bit to have its plug pulled.

I just hope they allow us the account wide rhino kit in the finished refer a friend (if it's going to exist) rather than the firehawk, I'd rather an account wide kit I can actually mix with stock vegas rather than the ugly firehawk kit x.x

Easy access. Are people that lazy these days that they want to do near nothing to get something they want?

 

then again i didn't care about the cars.

To the rest, GG on the legal exploitation.

Its "easy access" compared to grinding Ten Thousand Joker Tickets to get a character bound 4x4 Vegas in a world with no event counter tasks to rely on for crazy sums of joker tickets per day. 

 

Calling it "do near nothing" is quite inaccurate.

why though?


I got 2/3 refered but the second isn't done yet... it's not possible to finish in 4 days... what will happen to it? if the system comes back, will we be able to finished it, or does it count as "two out of three finished"?


really weird that this is happening now... guess it has something to do with the console versions / engine update I guess?.. :)

There won't be any new and improved features, we're discontinuing the RAF program.

No, I made a post on the forums. No need for a blog post filled with nothing new.

I think a few of us would love to know what finally caused this bit to have its plug pulled.

 

We decided it's best since it's not being used as expected and nearly as much. It's a waste of Dev time for the issues that are on going, they need to stay focused on their current project.

It's possible in the future.

No sorry, once it's closed they're gone.

mildly disappointing news. just got a few friends into the game as well.

 

Guess it was to be expected. the RaF system was extremely generous for what you had to do to earn points and generosity has no place in APB outside of the occasional event.

Well, damn. Here I was hoping they'd release one more refer to make up for the one I accidentally ruined, but now it'll be gone.

That's because the game never truly left Beta status, even under RTW it was still an incomplete project.

 

But back then the game ran better than it does now and such.  Game had Beta tacked into its name but for most, it sure as hell didn't seem like a Beta for what it was then.
