Oh you can put it into any perspective you want, doesn't change the truth of the fact that G1 has failed to do anything meaningful to keep APB interesting. When is the last time there was a proper content update to the game? How long ago did they promise the infamous Engine Upgrade?
They've already put out the Xbox version, so the upgrade isn't an impossibility at this point.
People have been supporting the s**t out of this game for years, and obviously your approach has failed miserably. So no, i don't believe in your perspective, even less since you're not a developer. This is not some spare time hobby, this is a job. The devs work for a paycheck, not for the love of strangers on the internet.
You can say the same about critics of the game as well. If there's any direct evidence of some correlation between whining and G1 making improvements to the game, I'd be interested in seeing it. Making videos however, still helps the game by the possibility of some bloke watching the videos and taking up the game, and there is proof because that's essentially how I started getting into the game. Thus somewhat maintaining a population. Understandably, it is their job but nothing will really motivate them to work other than a paycheck. However, the quality and ideas that are produced could very well be affected by the community they're making it for. Additionally, its not like they haven't seen the same suggestions and criticisms repeated over like a broken record.
And excuse me, what? You're the forum hero here, there's no gain in talking s**t on here. If i wanted to win a popularity contest, i would just do like you, and suck that G1 D like there's no tommorow.
Take a look at the posts and you can probably agree that there's more mommy talking than praise for g1 going on. I find it hard to believe that you possess an understanding of what the word "popular" means. Criticizing the company makes one seem more pragmatic, realistic rather than if you supported them and so people leverage off of that and repeat criticisms that others have already addressed. I'm just tired of hearing specifically that.
You are excused I guess? Stop taking it so personally lol. Just stating an opinion, but apparently that's not allowed in present society.
Don't pretend you're the good guy here, just because you're not willing to say anything negative. If you really gave a c**p about this game, you'd be willing to criticize, in order to get some attention to the real problem that's killing the game.
I didn't suggest myself to be anything. It's just your assumptions. You may be a bit confused, but the main purpose (at least mine) was to make content to suade new players to play; therefore giving me and others a population to play with. It's mostly self-serving, so I wouldn't consider myself a "good guy". If criticizing g1 of the same things over and over would amount to something, let me know and I'll hop right aboard. BUT the same things have already been said by other mouths, so there is no point in repeating them. The changes they want can be made after the upgrade arrives [if ever]. So with the criticism approach "failing miserably" as well, it only serves to irritate others. In other words, bulls***.
Saying that the game is dying because it's not getting more publicity, just tells how little you've actually been around.
Saying that those were my intentions just tells how little you understand.
Evidently, publicity is not the main issue with APB as anyone could observe. We're just doing our little part in keeping a playerbase, regardless of the fruits of our effort. And what exactly are you doing to change the core problems of the game?
You still haven't addressed what actions I should take instead. If you can't think of anything else, then I believe this is the best we can do, and you can stop wasting my time.
Lots of APB veterans wants to come back and play, but there's no new content, no new graphics, nothing new to do. All you can do is try to recreate what once was, and pray to god that it will be as fun as the first time.
Put me in all the boxes you want, to discredit my opinion. It still doesn't change the fact that G1 has done nothing to deserve a YouTube campaign, and until they do, they shouldn't get anything of the sort.
Sure, you've been here a while but all you can do is mope about the good old days and **** on the company. Congrats.
If that's your hobby, fine. I'll be doing something slightly more constructive in the meantime.
