Today was the first time I had the pleasure of playing on the new BETA, and as a player that has been playing APB for more than 6 years now, I LOVED IT!
We all know it is a little far from perfect, but it brights my eyes to see where this is going, I'm so bored of current APB and this new engine turns it more interesting and fun to play.
For me I wouldn't care if this BETA was released already as a replacement for the current version. I'm so bored on the old version that even with the many problems the BETA has, I still love it much much much more than the current APB(i know most people don't feel like that).
About the problems I had:
- I really expected more of performance, I had huge FPS drops(from 100 to 40~50) and the max FPS didn't get to the max FPS I get nowadays in the current APB(even on minimal settings);
- PLEASE REMOVE the blur scenario we see when we get damage, I really lost many gun fights because I couldn't aim anymore, the screen gets so distorted. Please remove this, this is the worst thing I have ever seen on a fast paced game like APB, we need clear and smooth view of the screen to have a good aim and precision;
- Please add something where we can see the ping since this information was removed from the /fps command, it is crucial for us that play in South America to watch our ping and see if we are having some connection/route problem;
My message for you LO:
Thanks so much for the work you are doing with APB, Little Orbit!
I love this game so much since the first time I played it(2013), I cannot wait to see this new engine as the official one.
There is a lot of negativity on the APB community, there have always been. Try not to focus on the many complaints you see, but in the complements many people are giving, the ones who truly love and care about this game and understand that this is a huge advance. We care about it.
