  1. Today
  2. how about making a proper "spectator system" (like in some games) where you can see people gameplay (with some delay otherwise you can stream snipe or help people to win missions). There should be a spectactor system where you can also RECORD that gameplay and insta report it. Nowadays people can only record those who are stupid enough to stream while cheating (there are some). I guarantee you aimbotters will dissapear (except blatant cheaters who are probably banned 24/7), smooth aim users will dissapear, so are speedhackers, teleporters, etc. only closet/wallhackers will still play and u can still figure out they cheat anyways.
  3. Yesterday
  4. psychopaths already pay like 15 a month for there sub another 10 bucks to play monthly apb is 0 issues. Wont stop cheaters especially when they can go blatant with out ever getting detected with BE. Maybe with EAC its another story but pay2play wont fix anything.
  5. Yes please add linux support i want to play apb again
  6. I clearly remember how I was getting slides first time I joined asylum on open beta
  7. Wednesday is coming up and - if our RL schedule permits (which will be posted our clan's discord channel on short notice, see the link below) - we will hold our usual "LAPD Squad Meet Up"! As always, it will take place in combination with the "Chipp's Car Club" (CCC) player event, which is scheduled after. The starting time for the "LAPD Squad Meet Up" is around 19:00 GMT*. We usually meet up at least an hour before CCC starts and do regular patrols together as well as custom high speed chases (depending on whether or not open world crime is going on). If you want to participate - on the cop or the criminal side - just let us know. For those interested here is our "LAPD Squad Discord LINK". The CCC player event does start at 20:00 GMT* (an hour earlier than it used to be) and the location for this week should be in one of the Financial districts (see the disclaimer below). Please use either the CCC Discord LINK or the CCC APB Forum LINK for more details about the CCC event and the specifics about the district's event location. Members of LAPD Squad will again take care of traffic control during the street races after the CCC car show (where participants present their newest customisations). Any other enforcer or criminal interested in helping out - and thus doing something entirely different in game for a change - is welcomed to keep the traffic at bay with us. If you have time to attend, we'll see you on the streets. In any case: Please stay safe out there and use all necessary precautions to stay healthy! ---------------------------------------------------------------- BEWARE: Due to the removal of threat levels (September 2021), and thus threat districts, there could be serious issues with finding a moderately empty server to run events, as only very few servers are available when logging in. This usually means that whether or not any player events can take place in a specified district can only be decided upon on short notice. It is also impossible to say if there are going to be enough free slots for all who want to participate (if the district is not empty). Whether or not those random players present will grief and interfere with the race and traffic control on purpose is also a hit and miss thing at the present. The same issues exist regarding open world crime activities, and it sometimes amounts to pure luck if units on patrol in available districts come across any of those. --------- * Links to a time zone converter, showing your corresponding local time, have been inserted for your convenience.
  8. @Heal: *lol* It gets even weirder as it is not only my character that is "blacked out" after Alt-Tabbing in and out of the game, but but all others too, including pedestrians (except the hair, which show just fine!) .
  9. I am extremely sure that new engine was fixed on the new engine, even at 300+ fps.
  10. wait, I remember how I was getting slides on open beta. I also asked someone in LO discord and got an answer that it's a problem of how the game physics is coded not the engine problem
  11. Off to a great start I see. Can't think of a single "big" figure in the playerbase that would apply for the position and one that I wouldn't consider too petty and childish to be occupying it. Can't wait to come back to the game and be greeted with a fanfare of ear-piercing shrieks in the chat emanating from a gaggle of feral internet janitors whose behavior would make even Tiggs blush.
  12. Can't say i have, never fancied myself a COD player except advanced warfare and OG zombies. But logically you'd be able to bypass almost anything by throwing enough money at it. Thanks for the criticism, i can now say i actually learnt something from the forum today.
  13. I feel like I understand the struggle of, trying to untangle an Alien's hairdo without making it mad On paper it sounds easy. Upgrade APB to a new engine But clearly was much harder than original thought. I wouldn't be surprised if LO was deceived into thinking the engine upgrade was almost done when buying GamersFirst Yea it took them four years to realize that the Engine upgrade was a bust. But then learned the kind of game APB is on the inside and actually are managing to clean up code (I hope) I been optimistic that they can upgrade something with this game. The store changes alone were amazing as G1 was way overpricing everything. I truly believe that once the foundation is set LO can push out meaningful updates.
  14. Its been what 4 years since LO took over? We don't even have a release date for whatever they are working on. The progres speaks for itself. Also i can foresee GTA 6 release supposedly 2025 before APB getting an update.
  15. Last week
  16. It looks like most of the Votes are in ... haha Not a huge margin. Oh well..
  17. I vote all of the above. LO are doing their best but they are incompetent so things never go as planned. I also have too little knowledge of the inner workings of the company to suggest improvements.
  18. I got some suggestions right here. Atlas Apartments Fortuna Mall Green Spit New Haven Apartments Yard Stretch Terminal Border Broadway Bus Depot East Side Hope Mall Merchant Park & Village Metropolitan Arts Centre Triple Regent
  19. Good question! The logical assumption, as suggested by NotZombieBiscuit, is that the Glicko-Value can increase indefinitely. As long as there are better players to beat. But of course you won't go beyond Gold 10, because that's where the threat range stops. So here's an interesting problem: How does matchmaking work exactly? Does it match players based on Glicko, or based on Threat? Again, the logical assumption would be a matchmaking based on Glicko. I'd expect that to be more accurate. But it might as well be based only on threat-level, since you can't go any higher than Gold 10. In the latter case, my earlier statement of "a Silver 10 and a Gold 1 player can be rated at 1500 and 1501 respectively" might not actually mean that the matchmaking system would consider them practically identical. Silver 10 and Gold 1 would still not be worlds apart, but the range could be significantly greater. We don't know how "large" each Threat-level is in terms of Glicko-values. Let's take a guess anyway. Magnus Carlsen's FIDE rating is ~2800. They use ELO, according to Wikipedia, but it doesn't really matter for this exercise. 2800 / 40 = 70 So each Threat-level would encompass round about 70 Glicko-values. In terms of the aforementioned FIDE world rankings that's roughly the difference between Magnus Carlsen and numbers 2 and 3 on that list, by the way. All the top 20 players are less than 140 points (i.e. two threat levels) apart from each other. On the weekly ratings for Lichess (which uses Glicko 2) the scale starts at 600 and ends at 2800. Quite a nice coincidence, assuming green Threat ends at 700 and you probably don't stay there unless you game the system or lack any comprehension of the game's mechanics. So if APB's threat distribution is anything close to the Lichess-curve(s), most players will sit somewhere in the lower silver range and hardly anyone is even close to Gold 10. With such a small active population, the curve of active players might sway noticeably to the right. New players will jump in, inflate the threat of slightly more experienced players, then give up if they can't get a foot in the door. That inflation ripples upwards, losing momentum on the way. But over time the system should correct itself. Rating-systems aren't a one-way street (or progression), after all.
  20. More then likey. WOuld explain some rando pming me with info they should not have on me or someone i know. it has happened in the past. but then again this game is full of kids who are angry at the world so they could be trying to pry at me with guesses. can't prove it either way
  21. L.O. doesn't allow Non-Golds to use or post in forum, in-game chat New Moderator Zombie doesn't like that, so I was forced to vote "Too Stupid To Vote" However if I wasn't this Stupid n could vote, I would vote NO. Lets remember kids with age comes wisdom. I haven't seen a worse ran rail-road since they started making rails. Biggest thing I see, is ya got one Train (LO Staff) Ya got 3 or more Rail Lines n the same staff, We're just a whistle stop. I'm not tryin to bash em, they are overworked and underpaid and like us, lacking motivation.
  22. No future. No management. No hope. If you search for hope, go to the church!
  23. i believe orbit has always been, and still is, sincere about improving apb, even if only because they are a company and companies want to make money perhaps ironically, orbit fell into the same pattern rtw did - they came in with a lot of money and a lot of ideas for where they wanted to take the game, and by the time they started to figure things out and get organized it was too late i think apb will stick around for a while yet, judging from fallen earth the minimal cost of servers appears to be a loss orbit deems acceptable, and depending on the terms of the license agreement with unit game if apb shuts down they may lose the rights to develop it, but i don’t have much hope for apb ever getting healthy population again
  24. Just curious about the views from the community on how APB is being managed. Note that these are just down to your personal views as we have no insight of how much effort/money is being used to APB compared to other projects. This includes everything, but not limited to; Do you believe the producer of the game has a good/healthy vision for the future of the game? Do you believe the efforts/dev time is appropriate in comparison to other projects? Do you believe there is a sincere effort from LO to maintain a healthy playerbase? etc, just examples to get your noggin' joggin'. shout out liquid richard
  25. It's almost like any profits from APB are just directly invested in to other projects that have no future just like the rest of all LO produced games, instead of investing it into their one game that actually has players.
