Yes, because if PB decides that any previous bans are a false positive, we won't get the information since we're no longer using their service. 

 

Are there plans to replace punkbuster with an actual client side anti cheat? Like BattleEye or something?

Because Rainbow 6 was dreadful when it only used FF, it recently started succeeding as a game on PC when it combined it with BattleEye.

 

Cos right now cheaters just make a new account and piss for ages before being banned, would be better to have a system that bans them instantly given that the cheat they're using is easily availible...

 

It's not good

that dumptruck *-*
regarding the sale I'd just make sure to put up the whole store actually (what I personally really desire is the LCR Old Glory :P )
Kind of intimidating FairFight had so many falsebans, but also very reassuring you guys are taking constantly care of what is going on and trying to improve stuff in every aspect.
all in all a welcome blogpost :)

If I can get to it tomorrow i'll try to figure out which character showed on FF and list them. No promises since that's a pretty big undertaking. 

How far back does the bans go? If one may ask.

 

Is it the last month? Or does it go further back, before FF being automated?

It's only false bans getting undone regarding FF (71 accounts got an email regarding this)

If you didn't get one, you aren't getting unbanned

Edit: When the emails go out on Tuesday (dunno which Tuesday)

FairFight is never wrong! b0fac38f7114000ae99cb75f1e88cb23.png

It must be because they were wrongly banned while being on the white list, so now they need a reason to unban them.

It's November already and here's a brief update!


Was the initial cause of the ruleset change due to the automation of some systems?

I'm actually done with this mess. Just make me a forum mod so we can have SOMEONE with some competence around here.

This.

 

Without a client side anti cheat, people can literally download the first cheat on google and cheat until FairFight finally picks them up, which takes quite some time... and as he said, FairFight only was a bad Idea in Rainbow Six: Siege.

 

 

 

Oh, and shini, speaking of rainbow...

Looks like a dot with added glow in PS,

 

but if you look closely, there's candy canes on the front as well.

 

So it's prob added ingame.

PlayStation 4

We’ve got our fingers crossed for a launch prior to Christmas but we’re at Sony’s mercy. While we’re hoping for the best, we still continue to work on PS4 and we’ll let you know once we have more information on the launch date. 

 

Does that mean you will continue working on the UE ugrade after the PS4 launch?

The UE upgrade which you mentioned before the consoles?

 

But anyway, thx for the post...

 

 

 

For the guys, who can't wait for the christmas event:

 

 

 

HoHoHo-pgl is ready,

Tra la la la la, la la la.

Tis the event to be deadly,

Tra la la la la, la la la.

 

Blood of your foes filled in the barrel,

Tra la la, la la la, la la la.

Sing APB's killer carol.

Tra la la la la, la la la.

@Tiggs Are there any kind of snow particles in the game? Snow would be awesome... :P

 

Yes near the elf contacts :D

 

 

 

 

As much as i love the snow, sadly FPS drops would be horrific, and it would be even more unfair for people who dont use smoke/particles remover


Edited by Snake Eyes, 15 November 2016 - 04:17 AM.

If you are still reading forum posts it means you never actually left. There is still a little piece of nostalgia for this game in your heart that will hardly die. Sad thing is that this game probably wont get better, but we can hope. Either way, you are still here, you still care, and we need you.

Was a tad too late to reply to you as i was on the phone, Wanted to correct you that emails go out at the moment you are unbanned, And it will happen Wednesday Early morning for EU Users (1-3 AM) Depending on which coast they are located on.

Well then, I might come check this out. I'm reserved though until seeing what's on offer for christmas, so I'll keep my eyes peeled for that.

Thanks for the update on the ps4 release. Heres a question regarding the ps4 release however. Will they have a day/night cycle added? It is still absent on the Xbox one version.

Just in time for the arrival of my new laptop. I'm so excited. BTW, can we get some joker ticket events? I'm so close to having firebombs on all of my characters. I just need a few 1000 more. Also, elf ears please? I wasn't able to play the event last year.

No, this is going to start a witch hunt. Knowing how rotten this community is, they will most likely be harassed all the time.

I wondered what kind of santa would drive such thing...

Then again it's San Paro after all, where poop has hit the fan big time. So it's propably not a very nice santa, but more in line with something like this:

Yeah that's good idea but i think both fairfight and battleye are expensive and they dont have money i guess.Btw how many teams work on apb pc,xbox 1 and ps4?Like 3 or 1 for all?

How would this be a good way of clearing their names? Why is clearing their name necessary?

 

If you know PlayerA got banned, and you see PlayerA is now playing, what do you expect? PlayerA snuck into the APB server room, hacked the servers, and unbanned himself?

 

No, obviously he got unbanned, thus clearing his name.

 

 

The only thing that can come of releasing the names is suspicion of the players from the community.

Why is no one asking about the Engine Update, has everyone just completely given up finally or what? 

 

"We are hoping for a PS4 release by Christmas!"

 

Yeah because I'm sure another release on console will be a big success, kek. Seriously though, is this game just completely dead in the water when it comes to PC?

if the engine update comes out, cool. if not, whatever.


the hype expired a long time ago, at least for me. It's not in my head when someone mentions APB anymore.
