  1. % is irrelevant any form of cometogether is irrelevant why are you here, reading this thread? go away, be something untraceable in the long run. please.
  2. I wish there were a option, that would guarantee at least 3v3 matches. I have no interest in 1v2's or 1v1's. They're such a niche thing that I would prefer to have a chance to opt out from such things. In fact, I rather stay in the FC than take the risk ending up in such bullshoot match. If the game presents me with "call backup?" I will call for backup. I have no delusions of grandeur about my abilities, and even if I get a fresh "out of the box trainee", I can at least use him/her as cannon fodder. Then again, this isn't the only problem with matchmaking, problems of which are made worse by dethreaters and such having effect on it in the grand scheme of things.
  3. I hate the fact that rust gives you a random sex/size char and you're stuck with it. It's a shitty design. If something is random, it should be random over and over again, not permanent like 2nd birth or something. EULA / TOS Read them. It's all buried in there. For an anonymous individual who doesn't want to get unbanned, you're making a hell of a lot excuses. --- What comes to the topic and OP, remains to be seen how effective and for how long the new-old (or is it old-new?) anti-cheat will be. Not holding my breath, as the game and it's ancient engine are pretty much leaking like a colander when it comes to staying afloat on top of what the few remaining cheat providers can bother to cobble together. And why on earth would some debil spend actual money on private cheats or the precious time coding them for oneself at this time and age?
  4. I think most of the annoyance with explos comes from the fact that you unlock them pretty late in progression. They never had ability to try them out, but died several times to them. The occasional weekend warrior with fresh account has no clue on what's happening around, has little to no money at all to lease guns and is most likely bewildered by stuff that goes boom and costs so many apb$ for one sales unit of ammo. And when used effectively, they can be a real pain in the neck in certain mission types/locations if your team is organized like few clueless addicts looking for next fix.
  5. Should I dart left or right? That IS THE question.
  6. If you need to ask this, you know you'll be screwed.
  7. In my dark and miserable brain, it kinda turned into closed alpha when it comes to being able to choose how and what aspects of it to play etc.
  8. I got turned salty, when 2 minutes before gettin out of "potentially naughty -box" (needing to have followed at least 20 min to say something in the chat) i was shoved into another naughty box (needing to have followed 45 min to say something in the chat). At the moment i feel just toxic. Inside and outside.
  9. Mine still haven't magically fixed themselves.
  10. I find it curious, that so many people are basically creating slight variations of the same exact character, when APB offers so many ways to be different.
  11. From 0 experience APB can be extremely brutal. It's pretty tough even for some of us to pick up again after taking some time off from it. It wouldn't be so bad, if the game had a proper tutorial or would at least explain certain things with some visual aid to you, but the tutorial elements are pretty minimal and basically just about tell you how to move around and it's up to you to figure out the rest. Map knowledge and understanding the basic mechanics with mission objectives and what ranges and how to use weapons is only the beginning, and many don't even survive that because certain elements in the community are pretty rough on newcomers and keep preying on them. Also it wouldn't be so bad, if there were loads of newcomers joining constantly, so that people would have more equal level opp and teammates, but there is really not too many people who have joined within last couple of years. As people have suggested, try to find some kind of small community that welcomes you and just start playing it with them. It's difficult to give any advice for someone blindly as we all learn and figure out things differently. And then there comes performing what you learn and know... I still suck at shooting with pretty much all guns, I'm just really bad with quick hand-eye coordination in video games. Luckily in APB you can use cover, distance and selection of weapon to compensate, at least to a degree.
  12. Given Matt's explanation in this thread, i kinda understand why they picked a closed group of people they (at least tihink they) know, makes certain amount of sense. Doesn't however help the fact that others feel more and more left outside. But that's just my opinion nobody asked for.
  13. Corona or no corona, i briefly popped back in for easter event thingy. Don't worry, I'm already gone. See you on next event i fancy playin'.
  14. I've pretty much given up bothering on where we are going... I did play during the initial release of APB. I was invited to apply for APB:R closed beta and got in. Since that, I've become less and less useful. Irrelevant. Detached. A lost cause. Maybe even delusional. A rambling hermit. Something to be purged soon. I've outlived my wellcome, and lingered on too far. I have become a burden. A doomsday prophet.
  15. IF you need a known terrorist organization or third reich symbols to make you look like "badass", you are bad and need to get a good whoopin' targeted at your patootie.
