  1. Ever thrown all your grenades and then said "Damn, I wish I could do that again, but out of a small pipe and not have to equip a gun the whole match." well that's the EOL line.


    Just pick which grenade you like so much that you'd trade your Primary Weapon for a chance to throw about 5 more and that's the EOL for you.

    Unfort I dont think anythings guna change as Matt hasnt looked in this topic

    Well obviously Matt hasn't looked at this topic because it wasn't posted in the immensely popular Game Suggestions area where all the cool suggestions go...


    Like srsly idk how to get Matt or the Mod's attention without obnoxiously pinging them and then who knows if they'll even consider the suggestions. 


    I think really, I mean if they've got the resources, the Community Manager person should really set up a weekly Q&A session where they get the week's suggestions or we post/vote for questions we want asked, but we all know that'll just turn into 50 differently worded versions of "Engine Update When?" or "Why aren't you stopping all the hackers?" questions every week.


    I'd just like someone in official capacity to pat our heads and tell us we're gud boyes once in a while.

    talking of WW2 weapons - my absolute favorite weapon of WW2 is the bren gun...

    we need more WW2 weapons in APB!


    Most def. 


    Bren - VAS LMG Reskin.


    DP/RP - NSSW Reskin.


    That's the easy-mode though.


    Ideally DP/RP would be a unique JMB weapon with the frisbee mag throw mechanic implemented and maybe some penetrating boolets. 


    As for the Bren - I think it's in the game already, in spirit. I actually thought, but never did say, that the "Old Glory"'s style and mods suit the Bren gun waaay more than the weird folded-stock AK-clone that it is. AFAIK the Bren was a Squad Support weapon, that was mostly used for tight little rounds and sometimes autofire. It was made to be used from both bipond and fired from the hip, and sometimes the shoulder. This I think suits the "Old Glory" split personality of being both a crazy full auto at hip-fire and basically a semi-auto rifle in Marksman mode, because the Bren was made to be versatile and supportive and idk banana about the AK-clone the current "Old Glory" is modelled as, but tight little rounds sure as hell do not suit weapons with folded stocks, like how the hell is that even possible? 


    That said, since they're probably not going to remake the Old Glory's model just to impress one player, they could just do something similar - two fire modes depending on whether marksman mode is being used or not. I don't know enough about the Bren to figure out what else would make it more unique for a JMB weapon (which just leaves it as a reskin gun instead). I mean it would be great if the bipod could be used as some sort of mechanic, but gluing players to a low wall or letting them go prone is just not in APB's play-style, so like all the existing bipods - it just becomes some fancy fluff on the end of the gun.

    iWish if they would make better way to get joker tickets , cause many  of us hate fight club ~ plus the daily ones are not really enough

    I think RIOT mode was meant to be that better way but yeah... poor RIOT mode.


    Although they did add in earning 1-5 JTs completing Missions but really compared to the 3000-10,000 JT costs of things, it's not a great deal.


    I definitely think they should increase the JT rewards for the dailies or introduce new ones and increase the amount we can do per day.

    did anyone have any ideas for new lovegun skins? or only just the guns? both might be nice.

    Did you miss this post? ⬇️

    iWant light pink and white weapon skin with same idea of the skin we got in the xmas event this year ^.^

    I totally agree - glowy skins are so in rn, and it would be awesome if they did a Love Gun version of the sparkly fairy skin. 


    I mean, ideally I'd rather it was little glowing pink hearts but I get that LO has it's work cut out for themselves and simply doing a pallet shift on an existing skin is a ton easier and time-efficient than making up something completely new.

    I'm right with you on this one brother.

    I love using the LMG's as my main. (SHAW / ALIG)

    I suppose in the end,,, it's all about having fun.

    100% this. 


    But we don't have to be giggling simpletons to have fun, dying in game sucks, lag sucks, frame drop sucks, cheating sucks, stuff is allowed to suck and we're allowed to be annoyed with that, it's how we react long term to that suckage which matters.

    Honestly, that's the best attitude to have. 

    Some times I wish I could just "have fun" while playing. 

    ...it's not easy for me. 

    I wanna say something snarky but I'm just filled with pity because as a long-time player I've grouped with many, many other players just like you and could come up with a heap of suggestions to make things better but in reality they're just bandaid solutions because I can't override people's attitude to hate losing so much, so idk what to say really other than "I'm sorry it sucks for you." 



  8. I can't believe I'm so late to this topic. 


    Clearly LMGs are not as popular as they should be because the best one hasn't entered the game yet and the best use for LMGs hasn't been added yet. 


    That and the only issue with LMGs is that there are no HMGs. I want my 2-man crewed stationary tripod or vehicle mounted area denial weapons.  


    But those obvious oversights aside - LMGs are fun, and so much love to anyone who mains one - but they're like 98% perfect rn, which unfortunately for the meta-players isn't that 101% they always want, so LMGs will always pale in comparison. 

    That said, I prefer it that way, I like being an extra special snowflake with my slightly different weapon - kills feel more rewarding and I think I round off a team more effectively than if we all just meta'd up and boringed our way through every match. I'm an LMG-toting silver and I'm proud of it and wouldn't change that for the world. (although might break even if they added extra clothing and outfit slots or returned 1-Day Premiums)


    Something something add PvE too.

    Except that s no correct.


    The collage is just used by editor.

    A symbol become a stand alone texture as it is after editor assembly.

    4MB for a texture is a joke for a decent server and the load time is less than 2 sec (1 sec in some case).


    Inside NinjaRipper, with F9, you can force extracting texture and in that case you see everything textured in any LOD saved in the cache, not only the "visible".

    Well now I don't know what to believe, although the words of royalty do carry some weight.

    Depends. 1 symbol can consts very few variables (like type and coordinates) compared to a texture data. 

    There is also the benefit of shared resources for the same symbol used many times and by many players.


    But it still depends how exactly it is programmed.

    Afaik it's easier to load them all seperately using a bunch of text lines reading loading positions, scale and colors rather than having every single user uploading a shitload of data everytime they join a district.

    Thanks for explaining that to me guys, makes a heap more sense now. ❤️

    There is no file, your symbols are just an arrangement of squares, circles, triangles, etc. modified with colors and scaling. That's also how they load. There isn't a full file formed for it.

    Correct me if I'm wrong, but that seems terribly inefficient. Or would making a "whole" symbol when we click Save be just as demanding on the servers/space?

    well then yea, we should be aple tto buy atleast in armas as you can get character slot there. and your actually right when you think about it, this game goes heavy on cuztomisation. so lets us create.

    Yes!  💯 ❤️ I totally understand why there needs to be some limits placed on customisation but this is APB and that limit should only be what you set yourself. (within reason, but hey if someone wants 200 outfits WHO ARE WE TO DENY THEM?!

    I enjoy APB's customization, and as much as I would like to, I can't stream normal gameplay on twitch because my internet isn't strong enough. (Thanks, Comcast) So instead I stream my design sessions, and that means I'm eating up slots kinda quick. Despite my reluctance to pay real cash for things (I'm a cheapskate, but hey, I did by a month's worth of premium so I can actually USE the designer.) I would shell out some dosh for more wardrobe slots if the price is right. Not gonna pay a buck per clothing piece slot, of course.

    I personally customize each and every single piece of clothing per outfit (With the exception of things like the earpiece headset. My lovely hair covers it anyway.) And like to sell designs that I've either outgrown or made some copies of for the sake of maybe making a micro-amount of dosh from. So yeah, the slot restriction gets pretty fierce.

    One doesn't simply mention their own designing stream without linking to it first. Like seriously - I'd love to what designs you're pulling off with non-premium account.

    no u should never refer your friends to play this game right now. 


    But there should be a new player reward system starting at R30 they get a gift starter pack rewards can come with character mods or weapon mods selector ( can't be trade), armas weapon selector 15 day trial, a new car, preset clothing or title. Each 20 ranks they get a pack in their mail till rank 160.


    Almost the same as a tutorial system, but at least new players have the motivation to play and rank up, having nicer stuff quicker.


    This is a good idea - as it rewards the new player rather than the already decked out existing player. 


    That said, I'd love for the opportunity to get some of those RAF rewards via other means. I was probably the only dumb-patootie who tried to do RAF the "honest" way and wasn't able to get enough points to snag that sexy Mikro for my Enfo, would be nice if they were either put up on the JT store or added as some sort of other reward. (ARMAS loyalty maybe?).

    Well you can when you get past 195

    I am, but I want more.


    I think I have 7/8 or 8/9, whichever I can clearly see there is a slot I missed out on because I wasn't logged in or ticked the right boxes at the right time. 


    This. Sucks. 


    To have missed out on that tiny extra slot and not be able to ever get it really rustles my jimmies. A fair amount of the current Event Rewards have their Paid Option in ARMAS. I just want to be able to use that option with outfit and clothing slots.


    But in addition to that, to have even 7 unique enough outfits, it takes way more than the 90 slots that I have, especially if you're as basic as me and like to use some of the preset outfits out there.

    What about the discounts? Premium accounts get discounts for Armas items. The only way I could see this working out is if the 1 day Premium status did not allow you to get discounts — otherwise we would probably upset customers who have had to get longer Premium periods on their accounts just to get discounts.


    Additionally, there could be people who already have Premium but decide to buy the 1 day Premium. (I'm not saying it's likely to ever happen, but it's a scenario we need to account for.) How would the system distinguish whether they get Premium discounts or not? You would probably have to program a mechanic to define a specific 24 hour period where the account has in-game Premium but is shut out of Premium discounts.


    I'm not saying this is a bad idea, since it's definitely a convenience for people who are mostly interested in designing. I'm mostly concerned about the technical side of this.


    (I secretly wish for something like a Creator/Designer Pass, where you pay a price that's lower than the price of a Premium packet, and in return you get the Premium benefits for designing only. No gameplay benefits (more money and standing from missions) or discounts on Armas; you get the Premium symbol layer limits and that's it. You pay less cash, and you get to place 50 tattoos, 50 car symbol layers, 50 clothing symbol layers, 100 layers on symbols — but you don't get longer Armas trials, Armas discounts, APB$ bonuses, contact standing bonuses etc.)

    I didn't think of that, well in the exploit sense - I get that buying 45 G1C worth of Premium to get over 100G1C worth of discounts sure does sound good. 


    So I agree that the 1 Day Premium shouldn't include the ARMAS discount, although still should have the other benefits - designing, contact and mission rewards, because it's for time-poor players, not just designers. 


    That said, if they're going to have to make all the extra effort to make the 1 Day Premium a special case - they might as well make a Designer Pass too - I think that's a really good idea and it would be awesome to have but in addition to it costing G1C, maybe have it up for JTs too, or just JTs because to me it seems just getting the Designer Unlocks only is a pretty small benefit for it to cost G1C. Or it would have to be barely 15 G1C for it to be viable for those using it.

    Colateral damages always exists

    I also remember G1 sold 1 day and 7 days premium 

    Do you remember how much for?






  16. Sorry if this has been discussed before I really did try to search but using "premium" as a keyword brings up like 100 topics and nobody got time for that. 


    But to the point - We all know that 1 and 3 Day Premium codes exist - these things are given out mostly with holidays or JMBs.


    I've talked about it earlier about how much I'd love for Premium to be for "Time Played" or pause option but understand that that is incredible difficult to do and probably not financially viable for LO


    But here's the issue - unfortunately there exists a class of players who just cannot get online enough to justify buying Premium subscriptions. Take the recent Premium gift for example - we were given 30 days - the minimum we can buy on ARMAs at this time - I've only been able to use 4 days of that 30 so far and if I'm lucky i'll get to use 2 more days, that's 6/30, so 24 days wasted. Now, it was free, so I'm not complaining, but if I had paid for those 30 days - you can see how 24 days wasted doesn't make it worth it. And so I don't buy Premium. 


    So my suggestion - combining the fact that 1 Day Premiums do exist, seem to be relatively ok for the devs to add to the game, and that there is a class of players who simply cannot viably justify 30 Day subscriptions - let us buy 1 Day Premium on ARMAS. (Add in a 3 Day option if possible for those glorious 3 day weekends).


    Using the 30 Day Premium (799 G1C) as a guide - a single day of Premium is worth 26.66 G1C and that would be nice, but the generally lowest cost items on ARMAS are 45G1C - even at that price I feel like it's worth it for us time-poor players, you could lower it to 30G1C and still make a profit over the 30 Day Premium value. I know I would love for it to be 15G1C per day to match the 6 Month Premium value - but beggars and choosers and I'm trying to make it worth LO's effort but they can price the 1 Day Premiums at whatever they want - I just suggest to make it less than 50G1C to make it worth the while of those buying them.


    Now I'm not suggesting this as an option for those already on 30 Day + subscriptions - this is strictly for those who just want Premium in 1 Day bursts, they're either stuck to only playing occasionally or designers who just want a quick premium boost to finish off some designs. I mean look at how many times/topics appear on the forums asking for Premium codes? Sure this probably won't stop by adding 1 Day Premium to ARMAS because free > not free, but we can pretend it will and keep in mind this is only for those people who are currently not buying any premium, so it's purely profit from where there was no profit, those that are fine with not getting the best value from Premium are probably already subscribed, I just think those who are stuck in the casual class of player but still want Premium could use the little support.

    These are beautiful, and as much as I'd love for these to be vehicle mounted monstrosities to reign havoc in San Paro, I think they're more mission assets or objectives rather than usable weapons. 


    Although it would make for a slightly to super awesome mission type - either capture/hold the launchers and at the end they obliterate the enemy team. OR it's part of an awesome siege mission type where either 1 team or both teams have to secure the weapons for a stage in order to use them to blast into a bank/prison/stronghold. 




    And I really enjoy this one - they're NPC controlled and part of a certain widely beloved PvE district where the NPCs are laying siege to the contact/stronghold the players have to protect for the round. And must be disabled/destroyed and maybe even in later stages taken over to eliminate even stronger enemies that appear in future waves.
