I decided it was time for me to try out different stuff so I found this game called Warframe. I've been playing it for a while now even clocked about 1500-2000 hours on it, you'd think I would forget about APB for atleast a little a while sooner or later, but guess what no I never stopped thinking about the game I used to play every day no matter what, I felt bored and f#ckin sad playing warframe, but right when I get back to APB it's as if this game fulfils me I feel great, happy even if I lose a match and now by the looks of it, this game is gonna shut down in next 1-2 years (if it even makes it that far) and all that effort I put in this game through all these years will just go down in the gutter. I've had a lot of faith in this game and G1 and I still do, but i'm starting to lose it, i'm very concerned about APB's future.

Laugh and take pride that they require coded counter measures to handle all your awesomeness, because their sad, little ego just pales next to the greatness that is you, a true gamer.

Even if those hackers get banned, what difference does it make? They can just come back in 10-15 minutes and be more careful after each ban. Meanwhile ban thresholds are getting tighter, causing even some legit players trigger and get banned for something and getting ignored. Those cancerous autistic dumbasses are still out there making new accounts, maybe figure out something that prevents them from coming back so easily. My ban was most likely caused by shooting and aiming players through invisible walls instinctively while playing the xmas event, everyone knows how broken the event was. I have played this over 8000 hours since 2011 and spent lots of time grinding roles, everything except munitions specialist was maxed, also those 20+ legendaries that i had mostly bought with money that i had earned while i was playing fc nearly every day.

They have the ability to put more control into our hands though.

 

 

District votekick option requiring a two third majority with cooldowns for votes made against you as well as kicked players coming back.

 

Allow us to use /abandonmission whenever we want.

You just failed to pick a good replacement, Warframe is a horribly boring grindfest. Spent 200 hours grinding that boring a** game, thinking it would get better when i unlock the good stuff... nope.

 

I agree on one thing though, there isn't any other third person pvp game that can compete with APB, this game has something unique to it.

it would be a nice addition to the game jim but i feel like the option to votekick could be easily exploited and abused by trolls resulting in kicking randoms for absolutely no reason but for sh1ts and giggles, and leaving the mission whenever you wish in a middle of a fight more so, just imagine you're defending an objective, last 5 minutes left on the clock and your whole team starts f#ckin leaving or vice versa lol

Warframe is an ok game but it just feels somewhat incomplete, the grind can be annoying at times sure but it does pay off i can assure you just that its hella time consuming lol

To be fair:
Once you find a game to fill the void APB has left, this game is literally garbage tier.

I used to be a bit bored because I didn't have other games to play but I still didn't really feel like starting up APB. Did anyway since the boredom literally took overhand and I always sort of felt instant regret once I got ATAC-perced by the next given silver. Back to boredom it was again.
That was the time I decided to stock up my games a bit, so instead of spending money on bullsh*t ARMAS guns or Joker Boxes for no reason I decided to actually start up my brain for a second and spend money on other games to play.

I've played a sh*tload of Dirty Bomb (although F2P), Siege, GTA 5 and Battlefield 1 as a result of that over the last weeks. Never been less bored than now. Also finally got around to playing some other games I wanted to check out but never really got around to like Hexcells, FIFA or Life is Strange, until I saw APB flying around on my hard drive again.
Guess what, I had entirely forgotten about it and at no point in time did I ever have an impetus to start it up again either.

I think I am finally past the point of hope for this game. I just... don't really give a sh*t about it anymore. Just checking the forum occasionally like once a week to see if there's anything new or interesting going on that might spark up my interest for the game again, but I don't hope to find anything here that will do so.

My best tip for you is find something to fill the void. If you find a game that really catches your attention and that you enjoy you'll eventually forget about APB. If Warframe isn't enough for you try adding a few more games to that list and poom: You'll entirely forget about APB just because you started playing better and more fun games.


No, I am not that guy named "h0llow" who is AFKing on Citadel Social all the time, proof here. My characters are called "Hollowchick" and "Hoilowchick" so please stop mixing us up, thank you.

Have you tried rainbow 6 siege. That has replaced APB as the broken game I'm addicted to and waiting to see fixed. Apb is just my back up now. I would say just try games until you find one. If it weren't for r6s I probably would have ended up playing a lot of h1z1. Other than the game mode that game is kind of similar to apb imo and while it is still a giant broken piece of mommy, its less broken than apb.

 

Edit: Oh also PU's Battlgrounds looks really cool to me. I didn't preorder so I didn't get to play the beta, but I'm probably going to get that game and it looks better than H1Z1 IMO.

Played R6S the week it came out.  Retried it about 2 months ago. Not my thing. 

 

H1Z1 is not similar to APB at all.

The game mode isn't similar. If it had apb's game mode I would consider it pretty much a straight upgrade to APB though as far as gameplay.

I think at this point the game needs content in the form of new missions (balancing old ones as well)

New modes that aren't half baked.

Matchmaking also needs to be faster, god damn.

Community is also just so bad, literally a contest to see how many ffbans you can rack up or how long you can closet on near blatant settings.

 

Hopefully the engine update makes it easier to make real content. But you know its all the same old 'hope' again.

 

The game at the moment is just boring, its 7 years old, nothing really to mix it up. Missions still basically same as what we had launch with some good improvements but still not balanced, can't count FC since its just death match, can't say consumables had much impact, the newer mods just made things more annoying, the valentines and xmas updates sucked hard and those gift boxes interfered with item priorities which gosh darned me over in missions but for some reason were never fixed. Must say that even though weapons aren't 'true' content, the game has some great variety in guns, sadly its just HVR or long range in general seems to be used due to some really questionable weapon balancing exacerbated by poor spawn mechanics and mission balance.

 

The game just really needs new tangible modes, fixing missions with new ones too and faster matchmaking. Community may improve over time if the people that quit find a reason to come back.

 

------

 

In regards to H1Z1 or Battlegrounds mentioned above, i would love APB to make a full mode like that. G1 should literally copy the battleroyale formula from other games.

Spawn everyone in social, when everyone's in, move them to a specially modded financial and get them to loot and move to wherever the game tells you or die. If you die, thats it, gosh darn off to social. Winner gets JT or some mommy. put some leaderboards in there and bosh.

 

I'd play that and it will beat all other games in terms of customisation at least. As long as it's not half baked like that drug mule/easter bunny, anarchy, etc modes.

Lets be honest, Daybreak (devs of H1Z1) is a joke of a company, G1 can beat them easily in terms of supporting their game.

Yeah, I've made the suggestion a few times that what should really happen is if attackers fail to make it to the final stage is that sides should basically switch and the defenders should have to attack. If they do as many objectives as the original attackers then they either win or it goes to final stage. If they don't then the original attackers win. Maybe not that exactly, but just something to make it so that if you get some bad mission that is really defense sided you still have a chance. Hell even on easy attack missions the defenders pretty much always have an advantage because there is always a chance they can win it before the final stage and then the final stage is usually balanced. The only real exceptions are VIP and also the fact that sometimes the attackers are given the objective for the final stage upon completing the 2nd to last stage. VIP needs entirely reworked or removed. Giving both sides a VIP and both having the same number of lives would be an improvement. Anyway its pretty annoying when you face the same group a bunch of times in a row and the team defending wins every single one and you don't get to play a single final stage.

 

Edit: Maybe what should happen with the side switch thing is if they don't get as far they lose, if they get to the same stage it goes to final, if they get farther they win.

Actually game is bad mainly because of lack of client anticheat, closets are getting more balant and it takes forever to ban them with just FF on... + all you mentioned, new contact, mission, removal of VIP stage (my opinion, some garbages run 20 minutes on citadel with alig and vegas pushing them to go fast, this stage is really boring and annoying to play) new free content would be nice, make JT guns available also for permanent time for like 10k JT each or 5k JT, maybe put unslotted unmodded armas guns to game for free players like is tommygun or 2 slot oscar

PU's Battlegrounds is actually planning to have some APB like customization. I believe I even heard some of the dev's that worked on APB customization were working on mutable which Battlegrounds is using. Also I think that game is going to be much better than H1Z1, but I still think overall H1Z1 is a much better and has more potential to improve than APB. Even though I normally get kind of bored of battle royale pretty quickly I think Battlegrounds looks pretty cool and well done and I'm kind of excited for it.

 

Edit: Here is a page and video about their customization. https://www.playbatt...r-customization

Some of you might dislike Warframe, but you gotta recognize that it's engine is quite well optimized... These graphics are better than APB's, and my potato laptop runs it better, with smooth fps, than APB. I know that APB's poor performance is due to the engine, and that's the purpose of the engine upgrade, to increase the performance. I like to think that, once they do the upgrade, APB will be great again.

These graphics are better than APB's, and my potato laptop runs it better, with smooth fps, than APB. I know that APB's poor performance is due to the engine, and that's the purpose of the engine upgrade, to increase the performance. I like to think that, once they do the upgrade, APB will be great again.

Warframe has instanced maps and lobbies tho right?

If so then it's already got a leg up on apb, since even modern open world shooters suffer performance issues

Whatever. They found a reason to point people's anger at sony instead of 'em. Keep waiting for 2014.

I think at this point the game needs content in the form of new missions (balancing old ones as well)

New modes that aren't half baked.

Matchmaking also needs to be faster, god damn.

Community is also just so bad, literally a contest to see how many ffbans you can rack up or how long you can closet on near blatant settings.

 

Hopefully the engine update makes it easier to make real content. But you know its all the same old 'hope' again.

 

The game at the moment is just boring, its 7 years old, nothing really to mix it up. Missions still basically same as what we had launch with some good improvements but still not balanced, can't count FC since its just death match, can't say consumables had much impact, the newer mods just made things more annoying, the valentines and xmas updates sucked hard and those gift boxes interfered with item priorities which gosh darned me over in missions but for some reason were never fixed. Must say that even though weapons aren't 'true' content, the game has some great variety in guns, sadly its just HVR or long range in general seems to be used due to some really questionable weapon balancing exacerbated by poor spawn mechanics and mission balance.

 

The game just really needs new tangible modes, fixing missions with new ones too and faster matchmaking. Community may improve over time if the people that quit find a reason to come back.

In regards to H1Z1 or Battlegrounds mentioned above, i would love APB to make a full mode like that. G1 should literally copy the battleroyale formula from other games.

Spawn everyone in social, when everyone's in, move them to a specially modded financial and get them to loot and move to wherever the game tells you or die. If you die, thats it, gosh darn off to social. Winner gets JT or some mommy. put some leaderboards in there and bosh.

 

I'd play that and it will beat all other games in terms of customisation at least. As long as it's not half baked like that drug mule/easter bunny, anarchy, etc modes.

Lets be honest, Daybreak (devs of H1Z1) is a joke of a company, G1 can beat them easily in terms of supporting their game.

I Feel that Gamerfirst really want's the game to die.

 

I can't think of a game that haven't release any new content for years. (not including cash items)

Guess what, I had entirely forgotten about it and at no point in time did I ever have an impetus to start it up again either.

I think I am finally past the point of hope for this game. I just... don't really give a sh*t about it anymore. Just checking the forum occasionally like once a week to see if there's anything new or interesting going on that might spark up my interest for the game again, but I don't hope to find anything here that will do so.

I think that's why it's so sad to alot of people. It used to be something new and amazing with lots of potential. RTW took a great stab at the whole cops and robbers theme, and added the best customization of any game ever. But it all just ended up becoming a huge waste of potential.

Yeah... no. Warframe looks like s**t, i'd take APB over Warframe any day.

 

And APB's problem is not graphics, unless we're trying to make APB an e-sport. The most important thing is just more gameplay variation.

I'm stuck at step 1. What do.

Step 2: Read the rest of the text
Step 3: ...?
Step 4: Profit.
 

I'll keep that in mind, thanks

No problem :]

That is indeed true. This game had so much potential yada yada yada. All has been said countless times and in huge excessive discussions before here multiple times.
I overall just stopped caring like so many others before me have.
This game is done for, it's all in the hands of a development studio on their road to bankruptcy. 


No, I am not that guy named "h0llow" who is AFKing on Citadel Social all the time, proof here. My characters are called "Hollowchick" and "Hoilowchick" so please stop mixing us up, thank you.

My brother in law is a prison guard, turns out that place is also full of "false positives".

This game was popular, thriving, with 2 million registered accounts.  The hardcore meta didn't exist and occasionally you would see humorous roleplay in the Districts, rather than just cancer.

What happened, as I experienced that led to a sudden turn-around on the steep decline to near demise was simple...

Threat Segregation.

It was something no one asked for. And ostensibly, to make the playing field more equal and safer for the lower ranks... which prior to had been fully included in regular matches, albeit with a more forgiving scoring system when opposed by higher ranks and threat levels... were now to be segregated on their own districts.

This started the change to a series of idiotic decisions by the company.  For one thing, all ranks and threats had been playing together and many a max gold took a newbie underwing and taught him a thing or too, besides since the hardcore meta didn't exist yet, and the mission scoring was not so harsh, the gold could afford to throw a few missions helping newbies. (This was before the cancer of dethreating which became such an issue as a part of Threat Segregation.)

This was long before the gold fever, when stacked premades, and legendaries, and steamrolling the newbs was all the rage caused by creating districts where everyone knew the weakest and newest players were.  That entire segregation thing changed the game fundamentally.  The skill factor faded away, whereas we used to have actual pro max rank gold players, we now had griefers.  The positive nature of the game, the humor, the inter-clan rivalries, the role play all faded away and the game became one hardcore meta of wreck someone as total as possible and then scorn him in district chat hoping to drive him out of the game.

Yes, from threat segregation to complete breakdown of intuition as to what the game really needed, and what the core playerbase really wanted (not the cheating clans with GM buddies who pushed for the stupid meta and griefer central game change)... the company lost touch completely.  First the very new and then casual playerbase FLED the game which had previously been humorous because it became a griefing, toxic, hostile game.

Then these legendaries (oh I can see those cheater clans sucking up to their RTW GM buddies to get them, so they would have the favoritism advantage over the basic playerbase) and yada yada.  The FAIRNESS aspect of the game died a long time ago, and the griefer playerbase exploited every aspect of the changes.

------------------------------------------------------------------

Summary

To save APB, honestly, they would have to reroll to the Gem they once had... and release a server with the original RTW code... while not perfect, was a damn sight better than what the game became.  If they opened a RTW coded server, with a proper anticheat they could well bring back that 2 million registered account playerbase. The game as it was originally appealed to a couple million players.  The game as it changed and evolved appeals to almost no one... not even core veterans who invested thousands of hours (and cash) into the game.

If they're going to go bankrupt, they have nothing to lose with a last hurrah.

1. Keep standard servers, but invest in proper anticheat systems, perhaps FF + Battleeye

2. Open a RTW original code server, subs required.

3. Open an Amnesty server for all banned accounts, allowing hacks, so it could be the hack festival Deathmode game... I mean seriously the standard servers are already becoming this, at least a hacks allowed (within certain defined limits) with only temp kicks and not bans.  Then there would be options for the playerbase and G1 might actually attract back the kind of population it has lost to make the game sustainable and profitable once again. Incorporate some of the cheats into the code for this version, then WHY would anyone PAY for a cheat sub? And besides there would be 3 variations of the game to appeal to ALL kinds of players.

I doubt they have the money for it but, if they are going to go under, they may as well go out with a bang, especially one with a chance to turn things around.  PC is where their loyal playerbase has been.  PC is where they should be investing. Trying to make this game kid-friendly or for consoles (when the pedestrians are coded to use profanity and the game was designed as 18+ is just a stupid iteration and alteration of the intended game.)  Leave it as is, an 18+ adult themed game, and bans for profanity are simply shooting your profits in the head.
