  1. Someone who thinks the game means using every trashy tactic, such as friends ghosting out of mission to repeatedly ram and block enemy team cars, pushing them out of place directly into the line of fire and interrupting their shots... to rage rerollers using cheats to get as many unbelievable kills in a mission possible,,, heedless of the fact that it is a team of golds versus a team of hopeless and hapless (trainee, green, bronze, low silvers) who have literally no chance to play at all, or even achieve 1 objective... but will die 20-30-40 times for the greater glory of the ego-pigs. This also includes max ranks with the best meta guns in game blowing the literal patootie out of the enemy team such that they simply drive away from the mission in terror... and are literaly chased and hunted down... many times by people with esp-radar hacks... intent to get that mega kill ratio they can stream/brag about. Such that it ends up being a game that only a clique of toxic tryhards play... and normal people long since leave for want of ability to accomplish 1 g-d damn thing.
  2. Says the admitted botter... mmmkay What anticheat? Fairfight is the best, it's just that Gamersfirst was too bankrupt to pay for updates and substituted GM decisions based on suspicion, grudges, or sheer rage at the playerbase to flippin ban everybody... under the auspices of a FF ban. Also, what nearly KILLED this game was perma-bans. A strictly enforced temp kick, with escalating time outs starting from 15 minutes to 15 days would be more than sufficient to prove the point... moreover, it could be implemented without a hand-wringing overly long time determining if a ban is completely justified and would stand up to an Appeals Court decision... and kick the miscreant close to immediately.... making the playerbase JOYOUS... and allowing him a quick re-entry and time to scrutinize his software for false flagging conflicts... if he continues to get kicked from game and his time escalates, he has a right of appeal to support... and those with cheat shenanigans can just go play something else on their short duration downtime, as it eliminates destroying their character and creating reroll rage hackers intent on destroying the game for everyone else... as their toon will be back in game shortly... but briefly if flagged as cheating.
  3. Being that iconic (black dominated) rap and HipHop music screams that "n" word more than any "non-black" kids makes the whole point moot... It's not the 1950s-60's anymore... it's become a point of trivialization... and anyone whose taken a DNA test may have found more than a few surprises.
  4. Ya gotta be kidding right? Game is dying due to absolute neglect in moderation of cheating, exploiting and griefing and allowing dethreated loons to harvest the Bronze District for sport... nobody is offended by sex... except maybe a child who shouldn't be playing... or a prude who should be off in a monastery sacrificing for his "sins." Don't make us sacrifice for yours.
  5. 1. It's a killing game, and the pedestrians are killed everyday as well as targeted just watch the opening video about corrupt enforcers taking it out on criminals and criminals taking it out on the whole damn city. 2. The National Socialist Party ceased to exist in 1945. No online clown dressed up as Ronald McDonald or Hitler is ever going to bring it back... and cannot even promote what no longer exists. That's not to say American or British style racist groups which hijacked German symbols have anything to do with any authentic political fascist organization... much so that it falls under a kind of gang-like paraphenalia, not unlike the colors of the biker gang Hell's Angels. It has notoriety to be sure, but no real world relation to political or terrorist propaganda. Moreover as other's have pointed out... the Red Army "terrorists" mass murdered 10x more people than ever accused of Hitler's government, but they won the war... so Communist symbols get a free pass. Nonetheless, all these political symbols are rude. Nazi symbols are still illegal in post war defeated Germany. But players who don these symbols are probably young and edgy and have ZERO association to irl "terrorists" or "war criminals." I mean... WHO tf are they "terrorizing" in APB with a pixel persona? Come on now.... at least if they shoot you, you get to shoot back. 3. The Isis/Isil flag has the Islamic shahada on it. Let's be honest here, if you want to outlaw religious symbols, that's going to include people play-acting as Israeli Defense Forces, Crusader cross imagery as well. Muslims worldwide have been involved in a series of recent wars... and what the West classifies as "terrorist groups" are given media notoriety. To be honest, American, British and Israeli troops funding Sunni sect radicals (Isis/Isil) in Syria to bring about the downfall of that country is a war crime. So, the politics always swings both ways, and have alternative variants to what someone's country's media might spin. Nevertheless, seeing as Osama Bin Ladin was a decades long CIA asset and his family was having lunch with the former head of the CIA, George Bush senior on the day of 9-11 tells me there's a lot of political shenanigans afoot... and targeting a certain Western armed and funded pirate group flying false flag operations to destabilize the Middle East... whilst having the wealthiest and most powerful militaries in human history (laying waste to Falluja Iraq with horror weapons like DIME and Depleted Uranium rings a bell) makes every player who dons a pixel in an American or Israeli flag... a kind of "terrorist" too. So, in my opinion there is NOTHING real world terrorist in APB, no one is promoting irl terrorism in any way and to accuse real world crimes against players is a new level of asininity comparable to all the grievously offended melting liberal snowflakes who sprout tears at the mere mention of historical issues. Nothing Islamic should be bannable, it opens a horrid can of worms and unless someone is in chat or whispers actually threatening real world harm or political crimes.... the mere symbols of North Korean government, Communist China, Joseph Stalin, etc.... cannot be allowed either and the moderation for EVERYTHING would become unmanageable nightmare so... I advocate the playerbase getting thicker skin. Keep the status quo... Nazi symbols be deleted (but not bannable)... same with jihadi stuff... but the TRUTH remains the communists were worse... and after Abu Ghraib... so was the US in it's "war on terror" not to mention Israels continued human rights violations against the Palestinians. I vote to keep REAL WORLD problems out of the game... and that includes stop crying when the support team doesn't even exist to do anything anyway. Just... grow thicker skin and move on... (at least you get to kill the guys dressed up in costumes you don't like).
  6. The hypocrisy of complaining about terrorism propaganda in a terroristic game... just reflect on the level of melting snowflake SJW cringe.
  7. For the love of Pete can you please stop asking to nerf stuff in-game. The game is great. If you think ATAC is OP, buy one either in Armas or with Joker tickets. Problem solved.
  8. I remember back in the day when Tiggs had GMs in district banning people for profanity. There was an old video (hilarious BTW) which had recorded all the provoking profanities which the pedestrians call us in-game... which included stuff people were getting bans for. I think there's a fine line in an 18+ game were profanity becomes deliberately and persistently toxic and abusive... and other times it's just rude commentary. As always bans for abusiveness are warranted but you can get so extreme you ban the entire playerbase... I believe FFbans (which included subsumed G1 moderation was something like 14,000+ that's just game-killing and dumb.) In a simulated kill game I think players need to have a certain level of thicker skin... while moderation in-game with temp kicks for persistent or targeted abusiveness would do wonders for improving behavior.
  9. Honestly this game is roleplay... of good guys and bad guys. I think it is veering to the extreme to accuse any players of being actual terrorism supporters, a charge which could lead to false arrests in real life... so please... while it exhibits poor judgment and LO should remove offensive symbols... let's not make false criminal accusations of our playerbase... who may very well be military personnel and subject to serious trouble based on false allegations.
  10. If Little Orbit aren't enforcing those rules though,,, we get complaint threads like these.
  11. Totally upfront and honest reply. I don't think cheating is anywhere near on the same level it was back in the FF days since the massive hard bans, and many of they unjust caused a firestorm of ragehacking in response. I don't see that now... but I do see a few suspicious players, and hate to say it but Ru players sometimes seem to perform miracles like jumping off a building and accurately shooting you mid drop. Not just lucky stuff but things even pros don't do... well it just seems to me the game is largely unmoderated atm. Ghosters ram and lookout for op out of mission routinely... people seem to think macroing via keybind is legit... and sadly the toxic ear-slammers in district chat.... but yeah I would say a couple times a week on Citadel I see what seems to be a suspicious character. of course, ping being what it is... in all fairness, unless there were GMs watching out... we'll just never really know. As for Little Orbit. I've bought a few guns recently and fully support development and preservation of the game... but I have to be honest... a weekly Engine Upgrade newsletter while the districts are unmoderated and sometimes downright abusive... takes the cake. I think what will save the game isn't something fancy, just some moderation and input of fairness.. I have long advocated against perma bans for cheating... that said, a way to temp kick on the fly would do wonders for the APB morale. There was a time early on during FairFight where the game pop rallied because it seemed as if something was finally being done. If only they had never made bans permanent. This game would be way different today. Perma bans kill small games as much as unchecked cheaters and exploiters and toxics do. I guess I just advocate a common sense and honest middle road... and I sincerely hope Little Orbit finds that for this game... and yes I want engine upgrade but I'd like for GMs to silence toxics in game (temp ofc) and temp ban impossibly godmode players BEFORE the Engine upgrade. ^ was a reply to CookiePuss just didnt want to copy paste his whole quote.
  12. I liked Tiggs. Tiggs was next level and able to absolutely command respect from the most toxic playerbase. That said, as much good as she accomplished, her overly harsh methods basically killed G1... I mean what 14,000 perma banned accounts? That's disastrous. But in fairness to Tiggs, that was a later development. Early on she was pretty amazing. If only Little Orbit could have her intelligence, her involvement, an actual working anticheat that hasn't been bypassed for years... some GM presence to temp kick toxics, ghosters and harassing griefers... and a TEMPORARY KICK for hack detection and SUSPICION BY QUALIFIED GMS... this game could thrive... and I mean temp kick as in immediately get them out of the match for a couple hours... unless you are ABSOLUTELY CERTAIN it is a cheat... and let them back in. If you are certain, find a way to code your proprietary anticheat to filter it out of game and don't let them in until their software scan is clean. Temp kicks for reasonable suspicion are a lot more fair than perma kicks that kick legits who are pro... or worse... an anticheat that never kicks at all.
  13. It's sad how you act dumb when everyone knows the obvious. It's on Silver districts and fight club too since the current anticheat is friggin useless. Back in the Fairfight days... cheaters were advised on cheat forums... yeah it was a whole APB subculture back then... to 1. Always deny and support denials (that anyone was cheating) 2. Buy Premium to reduce the likelihood of being banned and 3. Be a known Streamer since, if your rep was "pro" everyone would defend you against hackusations. Now, all of this was popularized by MrEpicGoat... whose fanclub would tell hackusators in District chat that... PROOF of his PRO level legitimacy was because he STREAMED his games... until one equally popular video exposed Goat manipulating the (not visible on Stream) hack overlay with his cursor midstream. Now, if you think there are no cheaters, macroers, exploiters playing this game rn... you're just in the circle jerk that's in fact ruining the game. If Little Orbit had any sense they would distance themselves from ANYONE promoting the exploitations destroying their playerbase... and potential profitability.
  14. Says the multiple banned gold guy. APB is a simple game... it works when matches are basically balanced and fair. For that to work, the concept of dethreating troll griefers rolling the weaker population daily exterminating them as a playerbase is problematic. What Little Orbit does NOT need are the fanbois of the gold-trollers telling them that everything is fine, leave it the way it is.
  15. If you want to keep the main playerbase... you will center the game on their needs. If you want to empower veteran players in their extermination of the playerbase game, you will ofc cater to 'them.'
