    Little orbit already stated nothings final... Like seriously y'all cry waaaaay too much about a free game that's clearly still going through fixes and changes. Yall need to start acting like adults bruh fr, its honestly pathetic. Just give a good reason on why you like or dislike a change then move on, Im sure they'll take note of it. but to sit n whine and complain about every little thing is little banana energy. Thanks for listening to my TED Talk.

    You're right.

    It is a free game,  for some.


    Although transparency regarding changes might be considered "too much to ask",

    I would surely like to know how these new changes work.


    I understand, I was asking for too much, and I need to step back.

    Thank you for speaking reason, where I had shown none.

    On the one hand, people complain about Golds stomping on lower threat players.

    On the other hand, golds get shit talked for abandoning missions with lower threat players.


    Reminder that the community agrees on nothing.

    I always attempt to /abandonmission as soon as humanly possible.

    Whether my Teammates are lowly Bronze , questionable Silvers or godly Golds.


    I'm gone.


    No, it does not leave me much after that.


    But still fighting the "good fight"...

    This isn't a bug, this is the devs FORGETTING to update every sub-mechanic related to bounties.
    Instead they probably just toggled the switch that says "people outside mission can interact with you" and left it at that.
    Bandaid patch.

    I envision the following scenario;


    Bounties across the map, some in mission, some not.

    Players out of mission start to ignore all bounties, as their experience has been they can no longer interact with them. (Shoot them)


    An out of mission bounty starts shooting and killing all nearby players, because players have ignored them.

    - You shouldn't even be able to SEE the bounty icon above the head of someone you can't shoot. It serves no purpose

    This would be a big help.

    Makes sense.

    Also it's kind of jarring to see bounties everywhere on the map screen but I'm not allowed to kill them.

    This is what's confusing for me.


    There may be some bounties that are not in mission, but the only indicator of this that I am aware of,

    is to shoot them.


    If they are out of mission they will take damage, if they are in mission, they won't.


    Seems kind of wonky, or is this a bug ?


    Shouldn't there be some indicator to determine if the bounty is in mission vs not in mission ?

  5. Some questions concerning the changes to Heat-5


    1) Since Heat-5 players are no longer vulnerable to anyone outside of their mission,

        does the Heat-5 player still have a Heat-5 Icon above them ?


        My guess is that they do.
        I noticed a few times while I was not in a mission, I was shooting at a Heat-5 player (indicator icon above them),

        and that player was invulnerable.


        If a Heat-5 player is in a mission, shouldn't they have NO Heat-5 icon indicator ?


        Players outside of a mission has no way of knowing if a Heat-5 player is out of mission and

        vulnerable until a player starts shooting the Heat-5 player and realizes that they are taking no damage.


    2) What is the purpose now for a Heat-5 player ?

        Assuming that the only time a Heat-5 player is vulnerable to everyone,

        when does that occur ?


       After their mission has ended if they still have Heat-5 ?


      When a criminal is ram raiding & mugging ?

      What about an Enforcer ?








  6. I can't speak for all, but this has been a very informative discussion.


    Some things that I have learned;


    1) Probably the most compelling is this;

    14 hours ago, CookiePuss said:

    Imagine thinking that because a thing happens, it is allowed.

        And I assumed anything that happened in game, ie; cheating, hacking , glitching, exploits, toxicity ..

        was implicitly allowed by Little Orbit.   


       This was a small wakeup call for me .. Thank you.   


    2) Use the /ignore command
        A novel approach, never used it myself as I need all the friends I can get, yes.. even the mean people


    3)  Do not respond to their comments
         Won't they get mad after a while ?


    4) Respond back, requesting to be friends, ask for gaming tips, strategy and what not
        I have done this many times, even pleading with them for up to 30min or longer to accept my friend request,

        only to be /ignored by them  😟    (I was added to their ignore list, not mine)


    5) Go to Lobby, take a break
        Make a sandwich or a Hotpocket



    The Anonymous Game play, no matter what game, will have it's share of Jerks,

    and no, you will not see them out in the real world spewing their toxicity.


    The benefits of anonymity.

    Not having to take responsibility for ones actions. (Like a slap-up-side the head)


    If you allow yourself to become a victim, you will be a victim.


    I choose not to be a victim.

  7. Re-Edited for Readability:



    Hello. In the course of recent events, I have some questions.


    This appeal is more to the administration of Little Orbit, but the community (players) can also write their opinion.

    I'll start with the relationship of the Little Orbit to the community (players).

    When they banned the use of Launchers or configs, they blocked a lot of players without warning.


    Later, Matt Scott explained this situation, allegedly by the fact that they will block for some Launcher or configs.

    Matt Scott also stated that players will be unlocked for the first time. (Although before all this, as Little Orbit acquired this game, Matt Scott said that he would make amendments to the account of blocking.


    Even on forum here once man wrote, ostensibly block will the first time not forever and to example ranging from five months and ending one year, Ah and then already forever.


    Naturally, depending on the violation.) It's not even that, let's go back to the moment when Matt Scott said that the players who were blocked will be unblocked in the next few days.


    After that, they blocked my account, and a few days later my friend's account.

    But during this period, we did not use anything or any Launchers.

    We submitted an application in support of Small Orbit, they responded 25 days later using the template as always, saying "write in support of Easy Anti Cheat, because they themselves do not have the authority to check and proceedings".


    Well, we wrote to the EAS, they did not really give any answer and still ignore the support (this is about 4 + months).


    That is, I have been playing since 2012, the funds invested, but so much time is wasted.


    The administration does not understand at all. This game is already scary to enter, and also real money to pay you for this attitude.

    Online and so there is no.


    Let's move on to the next one.


    Just yesterday, about ~ 10 people were blocked again (this is according to the stories of familiar people).


    Two of them are my personal acquaintances.

    The person was standing in the social district he was kicked from the area, the reason for the blockage and the period are not specified.

    The second person just went into the game and the same situation.

    And these people have from 2000 to 5000 hours.


    What's going on?

    Why for about five months I see people with third-party software (cheat, software) play a full squad in each district from 5 people with cheats.

    Why don't you see it?

    Put a person in the area at least for an hour to check for suspicious persons.

    I don't understand what this attitude is, without knowing anything you just block ordinary players?

    Would make some exception for guys of high ranks, with a large number hours, also transactions.

    of course all understand, there is cheaters and among such people, but here indeed brad.



    @Context, the use of paragraphs and "Line-Breaks" help tremendously in readability.

    Concerning your post, I hope you get this sorted out.

  8. @CookiePuss

    Haha, I like the encouraging "snuggle wuggle boofy" gif.  😁


    No, we don't have to be "giggling simpletons" to have fun.

    Then again, we don't all have to have the "Win at all costs" attitude either.


    And yes, there are players that have that attitude that "I need to win at all costs",

    and some even go to extraordinary lengths to improve their odds and to "get that extra advantage"


    At the very least, these players will use the few guns available that are the most versatile at all ranges, to maintain whatever advantage they can.

    Yes, the NTEC obviously is one of them.

    I get it.

    It makes sense.


    I have an NTEC Ursus that I pull out once in a while.

    And it is a great weapon.

    I just get bored using it sometimes.


    Some players will play at very low graphics settings to get that "extra FPS".

    Their graphics looks like crap, but I don't think they're there for the nice visual display.


    On the milder side, you have some players using different shaders that provide a better outline of opponents.

    Again, the graphics look horrible, but a pleasant visual experience is not their concern.


    Custom crosshairs are great too.

    Totally alleviates the in game Crosshair Bloom effect.

    You're experiencing in game crosshair bloom, or a weapon that provides a "wide" crosshair bloom  at rest..." ? ,   no problem.

    A custom crosshair takes care of the in game crosshair mechanics.

    A tight crosshair center screen all the time.


    Some people would even go so far as removing explosion and smoke visuals, which would obstruct a persons view.


    Not gonna even get into the fire rate / no recoil / triggerbot macro discussion.

    We all know these provide no real advantage.


    But the wallhacks, well, it's always nice to know if someone is sneaking up on you.


    I like winning too.

    It's just not the "be all / end all" of some peoples gameplay,

    And no, we are not "giggling simpletons".


    We just have different priorities.

    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. 


    But that obvious oversight 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.

    I'm right with you on this one brother.

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


    Currently using the N-SSW 74 Dvah as my main.


    I do get some complaints at times, mainly that I need to use a different weapon.

    But honestly , I love using this gun.


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

  10. Welp ...


    I believe I found the problem ..


    I was starting APB using the the APBprogram instead of the APB Launcherprogram

    This bypassed any updates I might have received.


    Although @Fortune Runnermay have received poor ratings for hygiene...

    I'd like to give him a plus +1 for effort ...


    @Salvick Did provide the solution ,, so Kudos to his effort.


    I will no longer SPAM this forum for answers,,, as all has been answered,


    @Fortune Runner Soap on a Rope ,, 

    Work with me brother ,,








    Merry Christmas everyone.




  11. I am not impressed ,,,



    Just now, Salvick said:






    Look, you need to use the launcher so it updates your game. If it says "error" when it finishes then you'll have to disable your antivirus and update again, that will fix your issue.

    Hit me up if anything, good luck.

    Thanks .. I will give it a go ,,

    @Fortune Runner may forgo any hygiene therapy ,,

    That;s not my problem ,, thanks ,,

  16. I was having dinner with a good friend of mine recently, who happens to be a Minor League Baseball Coach.


    As I was cutting into my sirloin, I asked most innocently, "Why don't you play against the Major Leagues ?"


    Coach:  Huh ?

    Me:  Why don't you play against the Major Leagues ?"

    Coach: "Why the hell would we want to do that ?"


    .....  at this point I drew upon my many years of APB forum experience and theories and responded;


    Me: "To Git Gud"

    Coach: "What, are you an idiot ?"

    Me: "How else is your team gonna get better, you need to play against better players"

    Coach: "Playing 10 games against a Major League Team, resulting in 10 losses for us, does not make us better, it demoralizes the team"

    Me: "So your team needs to Git Gud ?"

    Coach: "Westford,,, shut the f*ck up and eat your steak"


    Haven't heard from him in 6 months.

    Sent him a fruit cake for Christmas last week.

    I received the package back with a stamp.





    I may need more APB Forum logic before I reach out to him again.

    The next time you notice possibly lag related issues, start a /latencytest (Don't post that result publicly since it has your IP)

    This might help them figure out the issues, just send it in via support with info about when, which district and such.

    Will do.

    Thanks for the direction.


    Do we know if this is related to the server migration.... ?

    Or is this an anomaly  ?

  18. Jericho Latency using /fps:

    Location - Florida


    Waterfront:  80-85ms consistently.


    Crashed my car many times.


    Asylum: 37-45ms consistently.

    I did not crash my car,



    I am assuming this is all related to the server migration,,,, and these "blurps" in performance are temporary.


    Inquiring minds wants to know... ?



    Much thanks,

  19. Update:


    Epic Games responds to ban reversal plea:

    Epic Games explain decision to permanently ban FaZe Jarvis on Fortnite


    Mother of banned player responds:

    Mother Of Fortnite Pro Jarvis Kaye Hits Out At Gaming Community After Her Son Was Banned For Life


    Jarvis Kaye rakes in £20,000 from YouTube apology video:

    Banned Brit Fortnite player FaZe Jarvis ‘made £20,000 from YouTube apology video’



    Inside Fortnite cheat FaZe Jarvis’ £11.6million Hollywood Hills mansion with 10 bedrooms, cinema and a stripper pole




    I don't think the mother realizes the potential revenue loss a gaming company might suffer from cheaters.

    He is a very popular streamer with over 200k followers on YouTube and Twitch.


    Some in the playerbase complain that other popular streamers that cheated had only received 2 week suspensions,

    and that this lifelong ban was excessive.


  20. I kind of felt bad for this young gamer.



    A professional Fortnite player has been permanently banned from playing the hugely popular video game for cheating.

    Jarvis Kaye, who is a member of the eSports team FaZe Clan, revealed in an emotional YouTube video that he received the ban for uploading videos that showed him using aimbots in the game in order to improve the accuracy of his shooting.

    He told his nearly 2 million subscribers that he was unaware that such actions would lead to a ban.

    “All I was thinking about whilst I was making those videos was just how entertaining and interesting these videos would be for you guys to watch,” Mr Kaye said. 

    “It didn’t even cross my mind to think that I could be banned for life from Fortnite from those videos. I just want to be clear that this is the first time that I have ever done anything like this and of course I have never done this in a competitive game mode at all.”

    Full Story with short clip:  Link


    The fact that he was part of a professional eSports team makes this even more of a harsh reality.
