    Stutters at random intervals

    This is pretty much my issue as well ... runs "fine" on Financial, but Waterfront is a hot mess My Specs: Threadripper 1950x , GTX980TI, 32gig RAM, SSD, Win 10 64bit. I'll try playing after the Halloween event is over, perhaps some of the added objects are causing errors. Not likely, but I was doing fine performance-wise before update as well.

    Server lag update

    Latency was mostly improved on Jericho late last night with some lag spikes and a few hit reg issues. A step in the right direction, with much improvement still needed!

    Apologies for issues today

    I want to remain hopeful but with these attacks going on for years, it's pretty demoralizing. I have no expertise in this area, but have LO considered asking some other studio contemporaries how they have handled similar issues? I've never seen a game's servers be so crippled by attacks.
  4. I thought the exact same thing, how this person did an "interview" then just said... nah that's not right m8. It is weird to me how an outsider can take one look at the shooting, driving, UI and basic features and totally dismiss everything. There hasn't been one journalist that I know of that has had good things to say about APB, yet the player base that stuck around since the beginning will have a much different view of the game, sort of like when you look at "rotten tomatoes" for a review of a movie and the critical response is vastly different than the audience. APB has PVP that is not p2w, vast customization features that have not been rivaled by any game since, and a skill ceiling that can only be reached by learning something every time you play. It's a game that is easy to pick up and play but hard to master. The best multiplayer third-person shooter ever made that "experts" will seemingly never understand.
  5. looking forward to the extra bump in population- and a chance to rub shoulders with some devs!

    Name and Praise: Say Somethin' Positive

    BungMonkey was a nice guy to gift me a mask to complete my RickSanchez character
  7. Good point. I tried to think of worst case scenario, but I understand there is always something potentially bad about giving people power.
  8. In a perfect world, yes. But having volunteer programs like this can't hurt, even if redundant. Some people simply want to be involved in helping the community, just my take.
  9. No I do understand that, and I don't mean to infer that being gold makes you that much more knowledgeable about the game, or willing to help players for that matter. I am just looking for pitfalls for the volunteer system (which did exist and I don't remember how it worked exactly). I also agree with the current threat system needing work, but no idea how to "fix" it.
  10. It's not a bad idea if done correctly - I'm not sure that new players will come to the forums to ask for help so having volunteers answer questions in the district could be quite helpful for some. Is there not an issue with being able to join the lower tier district (bronze) though? Not saying that is where people would need the most help, but in some cases there would be people there that did, and no one there potentially to help out. (perhaps GM's would be present I realize) My concern is always that the new players try the game out after finding it on Steam, hear the bad reviews and salty commentary about it, try it for a few hours, get rekt and never return. Pointing out a few simple things could make someone's experience that much more enjoyable. Also, the volunteers aren't only helpful for brand new players- a game with as much depth as APB, lots could benefit from this. Just be careful that the people you give this tag will represent the company in a positive manner- we all know how easy it is to start an argument while in the game.

    Questions for LO

    Will there ever be a queue system for joining districts? We have all been there - getting on to play with friends, you want to play in a populated district and the only way to do that is to spam join until someone leaves the district. Perhaps this is a moot point with a different matchmaking system but currently (and for years) it's not a fun part of the game.

    Most dethreaters will announce it to their team willingly as there hasn't been any sort of enforcement of their actions. They don't seem to care about their reputation as a player or the impact it has on the players around them. Admittedly, I haven't done my part in submitting evidence to support to attempt to punish them either... can't be bothered most of the time. I can play for an extended period and encounter no cheaters, but for sure I will encounter at least one if not more dethreaters (as a mostly solo player this is highly demoralizing). What does that say about the current state of affairs? Time will tell if the proposed changes will have an impact on this scourge. I am happy the issue is being recognized for what it is, at least.
