  1. 5th and 6th submission, same two characters. Two out of the editor screenies Here's to hoping my spoilers don't spoil the bed this time
  2. I've never written a backstory before and my knowledge of apb lore is ok at best so I do apologize if I make you want to tear out your eyes halfway through this post. My two front and backs of my first character. Close up/name and tattoos Sayano had a pretty normal uneventful upbringing; there is no tragic backstory or heroic familial examples that led her to become an enforcer. No, her decision to become one came from seeing the usual big names and pretty faces pop up in effigy magazine and in the media. She wanted to have those same levels of fame and fortune and she was willing to do whatever what was needed to acheieve that. She has tried to create a distinct appearance from her cat ears hairband to her tattoos, to stand out amongst the crowd and is willing to take on any mission, no matter the danger. Now she attempts to further progress towards that goal by hopefully becoming a Joker salesperson! Two front and backs of my second character Close up/name and tattoos Duclibella from a young age was exposed to the world of crime with both of her parents being active in white collar crime, quite successfully having never been caught to this very day. It allowed Dulcibella to have a very privileged upbringing and in her view, a boring one as well. Her parents wanting to end the cycle with Bella recommended that she perhaps become a lawyer, doctor, anything but a criminal but all of those things were boring to Bella. Bella wanted something more exciting and she was prepared to achieve that goal. Having made connections with the right people already, hanging out at the popular locations gang members frequent. She was able to get started and move up through the ranks little by little, she still has a ways to go until she's a big fish but for now she doesn't mind being a small one with how often she gets to dirty her hands. Now she's applying to become a joker salesperson in hopes of spicing up her life just a little bit more. ʰᵒᵖᵉᶠᵘˡˡʸ ⁱ ᵈⁱᵈⁿ'ᵗ ᵐᵉˢˢ ᵘᵖ ᵗʰᵉ ˢᵖᵒⁱˡᵉʳˢ ᵗʰᵉʸ ˢᵗⁱˡˡ ᵃʳᵉ ᵃ ᵐʸˢᵗᵉʳʸ ᵗᵒ ᵐᵉ ⁱ ᵐᵉˢˢᵉᵈ ᵗʰᵉᵐ ᵘᵖ
  3. Hard disagree on the super specific chat filter, unless if it's a toggle option. Every single game I've played with filters like that make just even trying to tell your team what's going on at "A" point, a massive pita if not impossible. **** ********** ***** *** A - Battlefield 5 with their cancer chat filter for example.
  4. I've seen it used amongst the gay male community quite often and from one women to another ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
  5. Not even trying to defend that clown nor claim that the OOM isn't a super common issue, but I do own a rtx 2070 myself and haven't had that issue with the game on max. Been that way since I got it(a year? now) and I've always had whatever the latest driver was.

  7. So I've been thinking about how we can pledge to two different organizations in each faction and I'm just wondering what that means for our characters. Are we like mercenaries/hired guns and the organizations we work with are cool with us also doing work for the other org? Or do we actually belong to both groups as a member?
  8. I got the ASUS VG248QE 3 years ago for $200 but once I get my cpu sorted a 1440p 144hz monitor is next on my list.
  9. My i7 4790 has finally started to struggle with new games, namely BFV (was fine for a bit until all these shitty patches started coming and making performance worse with each update) . The avg fps isn't 'bad' (80-100) depends on how much of a clusterfvk is going on but it isn't stable so I'll drop to 55-60fps at least every two minutes. So I'm not doing this upgrade because of apb but I want to make sure that apb doesn't end up performing worse at least. Because I've been eyeing the Ryzen 2700x or 2600x and I'm not sure how well they would handle a game like apb that's so heavy on 2? cores. I also know zen 3 isn't super far away but bfv along with apb and ffxiv are my most played games and right now bfv is super frustrating at times due to the drops so I'm not sure I want to wait. I could also get a i7 8700k instead but I've been trying to avoid that due to already having spent $600 on a rtx 2070 back in late December before I had purchased bfv to learn that my cpu was no longer up to par but it was also time to upgrade the ol 970. So yeah if anyone with a ryzen 2700x or 2600x could tell me what's life like in apb with it I'd appreciate it a ton.
  10. I've spent at least 12 hours working on custom eyebrows over the course of a month due to being unhappy with any of the preset ones but unless if I happen to be extremely special it would appear that there's no way to have a 'curve' to them and not get jaggies but overall I'm happy with the final results as it looks good from a distance. The screenshot before the final was me having added to the preset eyebrows before just going full custom due to certain lighting obliterating my work.. I also cleaned up my top a little from the outfit I showed here awhile back and my upper back tattoo so I can stand looking at it up close. Then I made this simple kinda sloppy top today but I like it.
  11. I usually don't have much trouble with reg outside of when the servers are figuratively on fire so blaming hitreg isn't my thing normally but lately? the past 3 weeks have been absolute shit. Moving or stationary targets it doesn't matter, First few shots hit then I might as well be firing blanks or just flat out nothing but blanks from the start. Getting kills has been such a challenge since my aim is far from perfect and then the shitreg gets tossed in the mix.. luckily though, it would appear that I'm not the only one as I've had many prolonged awkward fights with players who usually could kill me much more quicker. Then there's my personal favorite issue that has seemingly become more common but I still don't know if it is client or server sided and that is, hit markers.. they don't show despite the fact that I did deal damage according to the server. I'll sometimes shoot someone with say a JG but no hit marker and then I go for the second shot, two hit kill no assist but one hit marker if I'm lucky lol. So now I just throw caution to the wind and just push because for all I know I could of actually landed a fat jg hit or maybe I didn't..
  12. 9.5/10 I love the chillness of it and it also is pretty interesting when run at quicker speeds
  13. First one is pretty fun 7/10 the rest though I'd give a 2/10
  14. At first his words were kind but his actions often left me scratching my head a bit but I always just passed it off as him trying at the very least. He was never abusive towards me though, until our last month together like I said but there was never any physical abuse.
  15. I just wanna thank those that already did or may take the time to give their advice I will take it all to mind. Especially big thanks tho to Aero and Asger.
  16. So about 2 months ago I broke up with a guy I was with for 6 months but I spent a little over a year before that trying to get into his heart. I was so crazy about him, he was the best I've ever met but when I met him he had just finished coming out of a long relationship that ended really bad and seemed to have caused him to sign off love for a whole year. I spent all of that time though from start to finish doing whatever I could for him. I sacrificed sleep, money, tears, and much more for him. But to make a long story short the person I thought he was, was just that - my thoughts. I found this out towards our last month, when he showed me his true character. He never trusted me nor did he think my love for him was real, just these two things alone destroyed me. Because I had worked so hard to show him the opposite but it didn't matter, none of my sacrifices to him did. When I asked him why did he accept to being my BF he told me that it was just a test that I failed from various things but what sealed my "death" was when I blew up at him for disrespecting me during the start to our last month together. We broke up for a short bit before he came back like 4-5 days after asking me for a chance but I don't know why I agreed while knowing what I did because in the end it was just him trying to use me for something I had promised to do for him a few months before shit went south. I cursed my patootie off at him before leaving for good. At first I handled our split pretty well considering all that I had found out but I still had a few nights where I just couldn't sleep as he was stuck on my mind. That ended though recently when a friend told me that he's with someone new already. I spent so much wasted time and effort and then some nice lady pops up into his life and he falls for her in a near instant compared to my yearlong struggle. I hate saying this but it has teared me apart, I've completely changed from who I was in just 2 weeks and I hate it. Why am I feeling like this about someone I should hate, I've had trouble staying asleep I wake up in the middle of nights now from dreams about him being with someone else. I wake up with my chest tight and hurting while feeling a mix of sadness and anger. My days are filled with thoughts of him and doubts about myself, was i the problem? and the like.. I don't feel comfortable talking to my friends or family about this so what better place than a games forum's off topic to seek help amiright?
  17. Two tylenol with a lot of water and a cup of crappy instant coffee after, before spending the rest of the day wondering why did I do this lol
  18. Could just revert the ttk buff they received a few years ago if the csg and jg end up being too strong and if that doesn't do it then they could just raise it some more.. the change to make shotguns be more consistent is something that should occur regardless of what other changes they may also need to have them be balanced imo.
  19. I'd say both the aces smg and rifle could use tweaks but only minor ones cause right now the risk involved in using them just isn't worth it despite them not being bad weapons, 3 years ago? they were amazing but with the changes to the Atac, Oca, and new guns like the manic it's like why bother with them? Two kills per mag but most of the time even if your aim is perfect you're likely gonna waste bullets after you've killed someone simply due to the fire rate which means most likely you're gonna have to swap to a secondary in a 1v2 where time is crucial. Meanwhile you have the brain dead easy atac or oca having enough for 3 kills and almost a fourth on top of also killing faster even if not by much atac (0.70 or lower with cj vs the 0.72? with a red preset mod of the aces rifle blocking cj) and most people running the oca are gonna be using cj2/3 so you lose that .01.. ttk advantage on the aces smg which can't run cj due to just like the rifle, red preset mod. Atac and the oca both also have that 'ease of use' thing going for them but your aim and tracking has to be 100% with the aces smg/rifle cause between the fire rate, high shots to kill, and mag size you'll be screwed otherwise. There's a bunch of small things that the atac and oca does better compared to the aces rifle or smg, like being able to actually prefire or handling line of sight breaks better by being able to actually hold lmb for more than what? 2 seconds? and much more. Basically all that the aces rilfe/smg versions have going for them is initial accuracy (god tier hip fire for an AR or the good ads and hipfire on the smg). As to what I think could be changed? I use both guns quite often despite my complaints and one thing comes to mind, increasing the shots that they both take to reach max bloom rather than lowering the actual max bloom. So you have more time with your crosshair being tight allowing for slightly longer bursts and sustained accuracy as well kinda.
