We'll get some notes up shortly, we've opened up the OTW server to test the Halloween event.  Please be sure to review the OTW information post any bugs to the OTW bug reporting section.

Is it possible that we could get a sub-forum to this OTW forum for announcements? I'd like to be able to subscribe to announcements, but I'm not sure I want to subscribe to the whole forum.

Question, can I stream on it, since it's now public technically?

Yes, but please put something in your title to let players know it's not live and on our test server. We don't want an increase in support tickets from players not understanding why they can't see Halloween but see it on streams.

You need to update the client first.

 

Go to Program Files (x86)\GamersFirst\APB OTW\Launcher

 

Click on Launcher.exe and wait for it to update.

After downloading and installing the OTW client don't go and launch the game (APB.exe)

 

Instead go to the folder APB OTW\Launcher and execute the APBLauncher.exe that will update your client with the latest patch, and you will be allowed  to get online into the OTW.

Are you planning on gifting out the backpack to everyone in OTW so they can test it in the social district? Otherwise this seems counter-intuitive to have players unlock it just to use it, since that will take time with a small population on OTW.

 

I mean, i understand you want to make sure the unlocking and progression works, which can be done as well, but it wouild be nice to make sure the backpack asset is tested thoroughly as well before it goes live..

 

Just a thought.

Plus many players are not from NA and will get high pings, which will be hard and stressful to play with, especially trying to grind some unlock.

Tiggs, could some type of mail be pushed out to everyone who had accounts before things went full public so we have all the mamba and cyber punk clothing packs like newer characters?

 

For science of course...

I have the mamba and cyber packs on my characters from 2011, so it has nothing to do with account creation date. Or, it shouldn't.

 

so it may be an issue specifically for you. Either way they should periodically check to make sure everything is unlocked, especially newer stuff that needs to get tested, like how the cyber clothes had some serious bugs at first. That's the entire point, no need to justify.

Made a new character and noticed they were on the very last page, ill probably check my main character next time im on, though im not the only one who has had this issue... last i checked anyways.

Likely just deleted content or old testing content that was removed. Just delete them and move to the next.

Let me get this strait. You fired the majority of your QA team and now you're charging customers to do the bug testing. Am I seeing things right?

I mean, you can get premium for free, if anything this is more of an added bonus onto the current Premium features.

Good to know I can test this and give feedback.

 

However, wouldn't it be wise to give some sort of small hat to those filing bug reports or testing the OTW? Maybe some of the rewards that were given for the referral program?

I was more referring to the JMBs and various events that gave out account locked premium codes and JMBs with possible premium. 

 

Only disabled codes would/should be the custom ones.
