  1. Epic would never pay good money for this pile of broken trash. It'll be sold off cheap and then left in maintenance mode to milk the last little bit of cash from the playerbase before being shut down once and for all, this is why I said Gamigo because this is exactly the sort of thing they do.
  2. How to save APB ? Simple: you can't, the game is dead and buried. prove me wrong.
  3. This game isn't still running, it's got 2 broken legs and can barely manage to crawl let alone run.
  4. There's word salad then there's this ..... word puree ? word soup ? whatever it is it made my head hurt.
  5. Yeah the console ports were a big mistake, I knew it was gonna be bad when they announced that Deep Silver would be the publisher. The thing is I think APB was already in a state of decline by then, the console port was a last desperate attempt to try and keep the game relevant.
  6. G1 were a long, long way from being perfect but let's not forget that they took an entirely dead game and gave it a new lease of life, LO took a dying game and buried it.
  7. That's some insane logic. By not banning cheaters they drive away any legit players that might give the game a try, meaning the active player base will only dwindle over time until there are only cheaters left. Maybe they should give everyone a wall hack and aimbot to level the playing field....
  8. Whether he needs the money or not it still doesn't bode well for APB because he lacks basic competence. LO have achieved virtually nothing during their tenure of APB except for making some aspects of the game noticeably worse.
  9. Damn, you're right , 3.5 years with virtually nothing to show for it, that's just depressing. At this point I really don't think it matters if he gives up or not. For what it's worth I'd really like to see this game make a comeback considering the amount of money I've spent on it over the years, I just don't see LO making that happen.
  10. Sad to say this but given the amount of progress we've seen over the last 2.5 years since LO took over it's not looking good, all they've managed to achieve during this time is to get the assets to load into the editor, they've also managed to release a failed game mode and break weapons balance. Not exactly what I'd call a resounding success by any metric, a lot of people seem mesmerised by the fact that Matt Scott posts updates, however I say judge a man not by his words but by his actions, with this in mind LO have been an utter failure, why any of you still have faith in this company is a mystery to me. Matt isn't keeping this game alive purely from the goodness of his heart, he's doing it because he knows if this fails he'll be off to McD's to flip burgers.
  11. How can it be a misfire if it has a ton of players and makes the devs fat stacks of cash ? It may not be played in the intended manner, but who really cares about that ?
  12. I don't think LO are deliberately killing the game, that would be stupid, they just bit off more than they could chew. From where I'm sitting APB seems to be following a very similar trajectory to another game I used to play - Defiance. Both games started off as commercial releases before going free to play, both games attempted to impliment a major upgrade with limited resources at their disposal, both games were abandoned by their original devs. Defiance is now dead and buried and I suspect it won't be long before APB joins it.
