This is when the game was fun. Bring it back with the engine upgrade and you will a lot of cash flowing in as well as players coming back to the game. Trust me. And i will do my best in promoting this game to the fullest. Bring back the old threat icons/symbols as well. the ones from the photo, they look better than the ones you have now. No offense, but its the truth. Also bring back that thing when a high threat level enter the social district and it says high threat player as enter, i forget how it went and i wasn't able to find any videos on that, but it was cool when it happen. Please take this into serious consideration.  You can also expand on the old threat system.

 

Matchmaking Update Part 1
 

  • APB Reloaded now uses a Bayesian enhanced version of the Glicko rating system to determine the relative skill of players, based on the outcomes of opposed missions. The believed skill of the player is known as that player’s Skill Rating, which is then translated into the player’s Threat Level (shown on the UI), and also used by the matchmaking system to construct matches where the skill of each side is as evenly matched as possible.
  • The total number of Threat Levels per faction has been increased to 30 and spread across 3 tiers – Bronze, Silver and Gold – with each tier consisting of 10 ranks. For example, a ‘Silver Rank 5’ player is believed to be better than a ‘Bronze Rank 10’ player.

  • All players will start from Bronze Rank 1, as the new system has to start from scratch in order correctly calculate the Threat level.
  • Note that we expect players to see large fluctuations to their Threat early on, as the system narrows in on your actual Threat level over time. So don’t be surprised to jump between tiers as well as ranks for the first few matches.

Dont really want to bash it or anything, but seeing the state the game is at now, i dont think recommending things like these helps. We can dream i guess..


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.

There's just no longer a goal from longtime or old players.. Nothing, except to have fun.

I believe it will help. I think alot of players will return to the game if certain things that made the game great in the beginning was bought back into the game. And alot of players , actually more than alot want the old threat system back. Some folks who post on this forum now might not agree to it, because they proabldy don't even remember it. Someone on youtube made a video the day it was removed, but i can't find that video anymore, but he explained it very clearly how the game kinda died after they got rid of it. I use to play this game everyday, still remember the day i manage to get to gold 2 lol. man i missed those days, it felt good. The old threat system had that feeling to achieve something, now we just play for nothing, i mean it feels that way. I haven't played in months, but the last time i did play i was bored within 20 mins.

 

I am coming back to the game full time tomorrow afternoon, Only because i have premium on 3 of my characters and i don't want it to run out. I was hoping the engine upgrade will be completed and release by now, its taking forever :( At this rate, it will be 2019 before its release.

 

The game still is fun.

We need that goal back into the game, at least then it felt like we were playing for something. It was a good feeling. Everytime i log on, i was like , man I'm going to try to get to gold 1 haha. and when i did oh man the feeling of that.

If you like a game, you will make videos, share videos and get the word out so more players can come back or get new players in the game. I do that all the time with games i enjoy. Who i am ? LAPDAlonzo from Colby, if you're from colby i remember playing with a bubba tea , but i thought he was banned?????? I plan to come back playing tomorrow though, setting up a google plus community page for it atm and on my vk page and playlist on my video site. Not to get players in the game though, just to expose some cheaters lol and make some random videos. Once the engine upgrade is release and new content i will get back promoting the game, but no telling when that's ever going to happen. If anything the PC version might get shut down lol.

 

if i remember correctly,

they have this system still, just the icons are hidden.

Everyone said its still there but hidden. Honestly playing the game i don't realized i have a rank, I just play to be playing now.

What are you talking about, this is still the system we have now, just with 40 threat levels and they are hidden from player view?

we'd have to first factor in how many strokes of ego plus the amount of leader board/whisper screenshots in a single instant.  :^)

Well, there is no goal since... wait when was the last content update I can't even remember.

Threat levels give you at least something to play for other than "fun".

 

It was basically to avoid people leaving matches to not lose threat ? Well, make it so when they leave it count as a loss.

 

But hey, it's time to stop dreaming about it. A lot of people including I asked for the old threat system to be reimplemented in the game (2-3 years ago already) but it's not gonna happen. They just don't want to admit they made a mistake on this because the current threat system doesn't change anything (it's just hidden). Silvers and below still get the "you mommy you no gold" insults. Whatever, i don't even know why I bother posting on APB forums anymore. They never listened anyway.

This is still the same threat system, but now the icons show our character's level instead of our actual threat level.  I liked the old icons a lot more.  Not just a nostalgic thing either.  The old ones gave you a better idea of how good your opposition really was.
