We are currently witnessing a games death, there is no nicer way of putting it.
The game has payed it's dues, it has been around for a good 6 or 7 years.
The engine is old, the game is neglected, the ever so toxic playerbase is shrinking by the minute.
Promises were never kept, patches entirely put on hold, bugs ignored, plans thrown out of the window, balancing flushed down the toilet, potential pissed upon.
This game is done for, it has lived past it's expiry date already which is remarkable, but considering the happenings of the last two years, it's immanent that it will only be a matter of time before G1 can't pay their bills anymore and will have to resign this game for good. At this point only the hardcore players are actually playing. This game barely gets any new players playing it.
And after all, I can hardly imagine anybody is still willing to pay for ARMAS content at this point.
You also shouldn't spend anything on that either. Please recap: Except for adding FF what has G1 done in the past few years to deserve it? They ENTIRELY ignored the massive outcries of about 90% of the community to damage-nerf the HVR, they entirely ignored the massive outcries about server performance, they entirely ignored the massive outcries about balancing patches, they entirely ignored the massive outcries over just about any issues this game had in the past 3-4 years. They took our money and NEVER put it to use. Just asking for money to maintain the same game with the same issues is not worth spending a single cent on. Especially not on ridiculous patch-notes like "We've improved this gun". You should not, under any circumstances, spend a single cent more on this game. They've gotten just about enough of our money to make something worthwhile but chose not to.
This game has become too hard to maintain anyway. Innova AND Hoplon realized that long before G1 did. They both terminated their servers, G1 just stopped sending patches over and communicating with them. They couldn't make a profit off of the games anymore and I wouldn't be surprised if G1 had something to do with them closing (although that is tinfoil head stuff now). Might be that they realized their low playerbase., but again, those are just theories not worth talking about. It didn't and continues to not change anything after all. If you can't even get a decently full Fightclub with more than 6 players in total playing on a Friday at 7PM CEST on Citadel, then your game is doomed.
It's sad to see it go but life goes on, find a different game at this point and try to fill the void while the game is in it's last moments.
I suggest Dirty Bomb for all of you, really fun F2P competitive fast paced shooter that actually receives a lot of care by it's developers + they actually LISTEN to feedback by the community. Hell, they even make videos for new patches with the leading developer talking about the changes. + In about 70 hours of playing the game so far I haven't spotted a single cheater. :^)
Find yourself a new game, this one is done. 2017 is, in all respect, by a very high chance gonna be the last year that APB is gonna exist, without or even with the new engine.
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.
I know what fairfight exactly does i was just trying to make it look like sh*t cause i dont like it
APB Community in a nutshell. And here I am wondering why "post-truth" became the word of 2016.
