  1. > Complains game is being ruined by "cheater epidemic". > Provides """solution""" to reduce non-cheating abusive players. ??? Profit?
  2. I love how the freeze-frame for the stream is at one of the cutest parts. *"Did I get one?"* XD Anyway, I'm keen for Matt's changes to threat, and by "changes" I mean phasing and finally letting matchmaking do it's thing with the most of the population as it was intended. But I am heaps a fan of the "moving players off server when they become too high threat for the current server" idea. I think these two systems working together are going to resolve a lot of threat/matchmaking issues we all like to create new threads over.
  3. Also the FFA doesn't have a goofy mod to make it a sidegrade rather than an upgrade to any of the conventional weapons. FFA belongs with the Stethno, Hawk, etc. Except it has the added snowflake bonus of it only being obtainable via super duper JMB.
  4. This is a great reason why the "START NEW TOPIC" button should just be a link to Matt's latest post instead of actually letting people start new topics on things that have been answered - On the forums. In the live stream. In a blog post.
  5. phew finally able to watch this and it was adorable! Although, not sure why, but I much prefer listening to Matt talk about the game rather than actually playing, so if he's really have a terrible time, no pressure from here for a repeat performance but it was a fun steam. I know Matt says he doesn't like hype, but can't help but be hyped over all the changes coming in, so many I even forgot I wanted and even if they take plenty of time, it is exciting to know what a giant opening of content upgrading the engine will bring. Only disappointment is the comment on no plans on any new hairstyles - totally understandable, there are way bigger fish to fry and it is 100% an "after the engine upgrade and 500,000 QoL changes first" deal - but I feel like this is another good reason to plug this completely awesome and original customisation volunteers/Steam Workship hybrid idea. Like I say in the post I have no idea what the security/technical aspects of implementing such a thing would be, but the Steam Workshop adds in a ton of custom content, all player made, and especially if something is as finicky as hairstyles that requires a heap of tweaking and coding and just messing around - why not cede that tedious work to someone willing to volunteer their time for that customisation? Yeah, although thanks to Sakebee's edit on the Original Thread really helped to bring up the references while watching the video. Maybe something to think about for next time, although ninja editing them into the current video would be nice too.
  6. Don't forget renting ALIGs too while you have your perm ALIG - gotta keep Agrotech in business so they can keep pumping out those free ones.
  7. Please tell us more about how all the money you've spent makes it ok to unban you.
  8. Just to add - the abuse/exploitation wasn't just a handful of ne'er-do-wells trying to make a quick buck or ruin some innocent account's day - it was done en masse, using exploits in Steam, with high-value/expensive gifts, and it was done months after the purchases/gifting was already done. The most notorious was with the KTTC Pack which was a significant purchase - it was bought with a low-value currency to get it at its cheapest, then resold through a third-party website to players all over APB. The players thought they were just getting a "good deal" since it all seemed at least 90% legit and then months latter the sellers mass-charged back compounded by Steam's weird system, the powers at the time, GamersFirst ended up losing a ton of money, money that had already been spent as the OG purchases were months and months ago. What could they do? The KTTC pack was intertwined well into so many accounts, they had already taken a huge hit to their coffers and now they got to spend even more time going through all the accounts to manually remove items? No it wouldn't do. So they banned both seller and buyer, sucked for the buyers, but they did offer them their accounts back if they re-purchased the KTTC pack at a discount - bit of a dickmove sure - but G1 had to get some profits back and probably thought a lot of players would pay the ransom. So all a shitty situation caused by some scummy people playing a long game to steal some cash - no one came out of that mess smelling good. Lost a considerable amount of players and the ability to gift ARMAs. I really doubt LO will be at all willing to even tempt a situation like that any time soon.
  9. We all know there is only be One Emperor. Psst: Hey buddy, look at that qualifier. So big bright and shiny. All juicy and absolving me of all creative criticism. So yeah, I said title like "Emperor of San Paro" not exactly "Emperor of San Paro" - you forget I'm basic af can't think of my own creative titles, but in your defence, I should have said something like "Titles in General" since they're just words and way more easier (AFAIK) to create than pretty hats, skins, symbols, vehicles, or clothing and people still get to feel special and flex that snowflake muscle. That was my point - give out some titles to those who have had their special achievements from the past overwritten by LO's Revolution.
  10. I was thinking about this - not just for the Crown but for anyone who "earned" things in the past that are now given away for "free". Maybe APB should do what they did in TF2 when they made that free - release some super rare content like the Proof of Purchase and give it away to those who want to feel like a special unique snokeflake again. Titles in General are a great and easiest option - just maybe leave a dev-note somewhere on them so they're not given away for some other reward because that'll just upset all the snowflakes again.
  11. Weird coincidence - but this happens to me occasionally too. Did you crash recently? Sometimes the launcher just up and decides it wants to re-download everything, best to close it and restart the launcher and then it's all like "Wut update?". Anyway, that's my """fix'""".
  12. Yeah, I wish they disabled reactions for this thread - 1. It's Matt/LO who is doing the choosing, so our opinions mean nothing. 2. People have put a lot of work into their creations, every single one, just like the Christmas Sweater one, everyone is so creative and learning things in the designer takes time and effort, and shouldn't have that work greeting with anonymous dislikes, it's just mean. 3. We're limited to the amount of reactions and considering everyone's work here is just splendid, I'm maxing out before I can give enough hearts, so just want everyone to know that I love all your work, this is one of the best threads ever.
  13. This is a better idea - refresh what we've got rather than starting from scratch and causing even more split with the community. Although, if they'd just let us level any contact in any district, that would solved any issues and we could have all the maps we could eat!
