  1. > Says he doesn't want to stir controversy > Proceeds to spew controversy and spread toxins Heavy majority people I've talked to and have known over the lifespan of APB have always agreed that Financial is better and have only chosen Waterfront because of contacts they are forced to level. I am the same. @Solomante 's first point still stands and should have been the end of discussion... Your specific situation is... specific and so you go on a tangent about APB 2 and how the game's too dead. "Well yes, but actually no" APB is being improved and worked on, but a rant about people occupying your beloved district is not really the issue you're going on about. Your fragile opinions aren't really about 'fariness' because fairness would include being fair to bad or good players, whilst you say that golds on waterfront should be ashamed. 'BEGONE' you say with your fair opinions as you decapitate half the population because you didn't like how they look at you...
  2. This could really be disregarded right out the gate as this issue has been brought up so many times... discussed and ridiculed. LO has their own solution/theory/plan and are most likely already in the works on it behind the scenes.
  3. Anything LO is trying to do is much better than nothing. APB has been in stagnant decline. The only way this game has been pushed has been from pure empathy and love for the game. It's gotten so far that two companies had to die trying to keep this game up. You can remain skeptical, down-right refuse change or support it, but it has to happen. No change is death and taking a risk at moving things, changing or re-doing is no longer a risk really... It'd be riskier to remain where we are. I couldn't imagine people not liking this idea, but it's surprising that there are any that disagree with this specific topic. More banter pls.
  4. Things to do when waiting for maintenance to complete: Do something productive Write a novel of how empty you feel every time you don't get to touch APB Get a job and forget what videogames are
  5. This post should be enough to poke LO to release a more detailed description of an EMP and it's use. So far, with what they've presented, it's useful in certain cancer situations or to disorient someone trying to ram you. With it's current uses right now, I'd agree on the point - it would be dull and people wouldn't want to sacrifice hard damage. Then again, when it's released and LO sees little use, a buff will be introduced. Adding a variety is good either way. With a team comp where three use hard damage and one uses EMP's it could be pulled off well. Being the EMP guy would give a person responsibility and a role.
  6. Of course - It'd be much more engaging on low-pop and core additions like enemy AI are a whole mechanic that make a game more fleshed out. The better bonus of enemy AI would be that if behavior was fluid, it'd give replayability and value to combat. More casuals would appear, more content could be built to serve as live-missions that change San Paro as it goes and many more concepts could be expanded on... BUT Scripting NPC AI that performs like an actual opponent... in a sweaty world... is problematic. It'd take a lot of time, resources and testing. At a bumpy and slow pace that APB goes, it's risky to do that. It'd also change the core of the whole game by just adding something of the sort. It'd require to game be fixed and stable first. It'd require constant resources for the AI to think. The game would have to go through a ton of stabilisation. A decision to add Enemy AI would also cause divided opinions of the playerbase. Everyone here will be able to express reasonable doubt, but when a chance and resources get presented... I think it'd be something to pay attention to. Imagine though... as a criminal... you going to defend a warehouse that has an attempted police raid. Just Cop NPC's coming at you or Enforcers as a special attack unit, engaging on a criminal enterprise... taking out enemy AI that supposedly operate there... Story bits with AI that lead to random events around the town... Enforcers can find NPC crims and bust them for cash... Criminals can harass npc enforcers to estabilish 'territory'. This is just dreaming and all and would need a bigger world than the districts we have... It's easy to say it'd be cool, but it would take so much risk and time to pull of something in APB...
  7. This is the most insignificant issue I've seen so far... and people still find reason to fuzzy bunny. This would never get old...
  8. On that subject, it's not even confirmed. Just teased as a possibility.
  9. There's no way it's not coming. LO has been busting patootie and taking heat, so they gotta do it. It's admirable that they've taken this mess and position with all the warning signs. So far, with what they'd signed up to and what they have, they've been doing great. There's been actual encouragement to let SPCT share the material and compose a video by another person that isn't going to only do the working shots. Don't write them off as G1. The old g1 was a nightmare and not even EA could compare to how patootie G1's servicability and greed got. The estimate for it to be at the end of the year would put it as a Christmas miracle and a birthday gift for me, but I wouldn't be surprised to see an extend in to next year. Matters of new territory and re-writing puts estimates at a haze. You can put trivial dates to try to form to, but so many unknown and unexpected things can happen along the way.
  10. I get that you are not satisfied with acknowledgement. Copy-Paste replies wouldn't be a thing if the amount of tickets that people send wasn't so damn huge. They state they're on 2 month response time, which is quite insane. I'd guess there's a small support dedication to grind through all the mindless tickets that have the same contents over and over. Like - You state issues about matchmaking in support, but I think EVERYONE knows it's patootie. I'd not even waste time on a ticket like that, since they know it and there would not be enough manpower to satisfy every concern... So there's a support dedication to solving critical matters. I'm guessing the amount of people in support is too small to get through all the playerbase's concerns, so they have to dump and grind through tickets. From my standpoint it would be - We need to effectively eliminate the amount of tickets to improve further reply speed and attention... Let's categorise all the same ones or similar less-important cases in one that need to be processed quicker. The strange and damaging cases will be prioritised, but even then I wouldn't reply quicker. I'd need to solve the oldest cases first, so everyone across would get equal time spent on their tickets. Less tickets get left behind in a manner and slowly we catch up to speed. I would guess that money issues don't get priority treatment because there is a solution they might be working on to prevent the same type of money issue tickets again. Then again, if a major issue arises, support gets pushed back again and the grind re-starts. I'd certainly lose my mind if I was in support (it'd be a cool management game on insane difficulty, though).
  11. Okay in both videos I at least chuckled half the time. This is good stuff. Not bad, not great, but good!
  12. It can be asked for, but not now. It's too early to ask this question. Just keep asking for engine upgrade.
