    leveling on apb

    195 mods can greatly affect a mission, someone runs and you dont have a car surfer? you probably wont get them, especially now that they nerfed dog ear (for literally no reason). sure they could move the mods around, maybe remove the level requirement for them. a new player/ low rank player can go and get the joker mods sure, but every time i see a newer player join FC they leave after a round.

    leveling on apb

    it takes like 700 hours to get 195 in current pop on NA, no one is gonna bother. it doesnt matter if a typical MMO has long progression, this game is dead, and we are losing players by the day. Simple things like speeding it up from 700 hours to 200 hours will still retain players and not drastically affect anything. world of warcraft takes like a week to get max... not 700 hours

    leveling on apb

    I have played APB for a very long time now and I have leveled many characters to max or close to max. In the prime time of APB, leveling to max took around 600-700 hours played, this is more than most people ever put into a single game. Currently in APB, there is far fewer players, therefore you get far fewer missions. Leveling now takes substantially longer than before. On top of this absurd amount of time it takes to level, half the mods in the game arent even unlocked until 195, which takes like 300-400 hours played, which is still more time than some are willing/able to put into a game. I feel that increasing the experience gain by 2x or 3x would speed up leveling and make end game seem more reachable to players, especially those who dont feel the game is worth their time because they dont have the time to dedicate.
  4. NA has 200 players, Those 200 players are literally segregated by threat districts and east/west districts. My east friends would rather play EU than play west (some just dont play at all)and my west friends wont play east. It is friday night and there is NO action district for golds to play in. Why do we still have the segregation, it makes no sense. It is literally killing the game. EDIT I forgot to add this but, we are also segregated by the fact some people dont need waterfront so they JUST DONT PLAY until its fin and so on Merged. turn off threat and give us back central servers for god sakes
  5. never even got in, tried from start to finish, got loading screen maybe 6 times. tried whole time

    auto-ready sytem timer

    Adding the ability to edit the auto ready timer would be pretty cool and useful.
  7. or how about, we stop nerfing guns and buff the trash one so they stand a chance

    Double XP weekends

    As we all know, it takes awhile to level up in APB, If you don't have premium, it takes 2-3x as long. I, among others, feel that introducing "Double XP weekends" has the possibility of doing a few things. - Help new players unlock guns/mods faster so they are more caught up with players who have played for years. - Provide incentive to play so they "dont miss the double xp" - Possibly bring back old players (who might even stay) - Give veteran players a reason to get back on to finally level up that alt we have had for years -shows people what it is like to have premium Doing this has been suggested a few times over the years but it never happened. It has potential to help with population. Many other games do this and you can actually see the boost of population when they do it. example premium rewards for non premium players 2x premium rewards for premium players Side notes: Doing Double XP weekends could even be made into an event. The more levels you get the more Joker Tickets you receive and whoever got the most gets a gold joker box. Could even bring clans into it, clan with most levels on that weekend would get a reward. (this would provide even more incentive to play) example 1 level -10jt 10 levels- 200jt 20 levels-400jt
  9. As far as I can tell, the main reasons that people quit/dont try apb are game performance, skill gap/learning curve and "toxic community". I think that bringing back the SPCM position could help with all 3. The veteran players in this game know basically all there is to know about the game and some of us are willing to share it with new players. I get random whispers all the time from people asking what mod is best for __ gun/ car or how they can improve their aim/fps. I'm assuming that I am not the only one that gets these messages and I am assuming some of the people who send these messages don't always get the advice they are asking for, I am sure some of them get the toxic responses everyone talks about. Having people who's literal purpose is to answer these questions could/would be very helpful in retaining new players. When I was a newer player to APB, this position existed and it actually did help me in some ways.
  10. which would make me think that maybe we should have IMPROVED matchmaking and NO segregation
  11. i barely use the forums but every time i do, i see someone say something along the lines of " i havnt even had the game installed in two years but YOU ARE SO WRONG ABOUT EVERYTHING YOU SAID"
  12. I cant name one dethreater that got banned for dethreating. And if those scumbag dethreaters are stuck in same district with everyone else, they will get slammed too(which is what they deserve tbh)
  13. Segregating threat on Jericho just doesn't make sense. I understand that it may not always be fair to put the veteran players into the same matchmaking pool as a silver who has only played a week, but it still isnt working on NA. We do not have the population to support it. NA peeks at around 200 players on at a time(THIS POPULATION ONLY STAYS ON FOR MAYBE AN HOUR BEFORE IT LOWERS). EU is 600-800 depending on the day of the week. This is eu right now. 602 players. they can support being segregated. This is NA. 82. We CANNOT support being segregated. When threats were combined into same servers, NA had a waterfront and financial going for most the day at 40-40 or close to it. But now we are back to this cycle of financial for a week and then waterfront for maybe a day... and back to fin (I have only seen 40-40 maybe 3-4 times since we got segregation back). And lets just say you need waterfront and IT FINALLY POPULATES after like 2 weeks of you waiting. half your missions are going to look like this. (blacked out to avoid name and shame) Dethreating is back. i played for maybe 13 missions yesterday and i got around 6-7 dethreaters either on my team or the other team (separate missions). Today my first mission was a deathreater. Just put NA back to unsegregated. Its dying regardless. *edit* New players are going to quit regardless. they go to bronze, dethreaters slam them. they go into silver, they get farmed by a veteran player.
