  1. They might be just waiting for the engine update like most players who have supported this game for a long time. The 1 month is not enough notice for someone that has been inactive for a year exactly. They could be on holiday or whatever, You can't just make a announcement and tell them to stop whatever they are doing to login during the month notice. Not to mention the fact that APB has always maintained that they wouldn't do name wipes in the past so these guys probably have no idea about the fact that it's happening if they are away.
  2. The way he comes out on his own stream by treating players in a bad manner on top of not looking like he enjoys the game most of the time is not someone I would want to advertise if I owned a game. I don't feel like he represents the APB community as a single person and the company should do stuff like this on their own and interact with the community directly rather than a 3rd person. But like I said nothing against Kempington I just feel that Little Orbit should do stuff on their own and communicate with us direct rather than an unofficial discord and 3rd party people. I wouldn't be surprised if we have another Sovereign situation with the way things are going. Post edited with author's consent. - Mina_
  3. Pretty stupid to wipe char names of people who haven't logged in for a year, I can already feel the shitstorm that will follow it. It makes more sense to wipe char names of people that haven't logged in over 3-4 years. But then again you guys are the best at making the wrong decision and never keeping to time with anything you do. I just hope the engine update is not a failure considering all the time and delays there has been to it. I also don't feel the 1 month notice is enough if you are going to wipe people who have been inactive for 1 year, If it was for 3-4 years it wouldn't matter much but that's just my opinion. Special treatment, Nothing against Kempington great guy but it's all it is. Same as how they are more active on the unofficial discord compared to the forums and a lot of the people from there seemed to be in SPCT and GM positions.
  4. I mean you are definitely entitled to your opinion and I get what you are trying to say. But I am sure you are an old player like me, Have you really seen this game bring a lot of players based on people recommending the game? The active population has been hovering around the same point for so many years and since last year has been going down with the exception of the recent surge with merge but I am sure it will go down again. I also would like to point that the current active population is what most people would consider a failure and wouldve shut down the game by this point. But just to touch on your idea of prioritising recently active players compared to veterans, what if someone is deployed to the army for a year or something would they deserve to lose their names to someone who have been playing actively the past couple of months? The point I am trying to make is that not everyone has the time to play this game a lot and recent hours should never be a variable in the decision of who gets the names in my opinion. Personally I think the only thing that would prevent majority of the current inactive players to leave again would be a game without active updates. It seems like LO are willing to bring new content to the game which I hope would entice them to stay. I have a lot of friends that haven't touched the game since 2013 who have been asking about the progress of the game over the years, these are the types of players that would come back once there is a major update and once they are satisfied that LO will deliver new content and actually look after the game which GamersFirst failed to do.
  5. That's on you. There are some players who wasted 17k hours of their life playing APB and sure that's some dedication to the game but doesn't make the player with 17k hours any better than someone with less. The point I am trying to get at is that the active population is so low that it wouldn't even make sense to cater them compared to the potential population that would return with the engine update. If those players find out that they won't keep their names it would decrease the potential of them coming back again . If you are talking about erasing names of players who just created their chars and spent less than 20 hours overall in the game sure I would understand but penalising anyone that has spent hundreds of hours in this game would just create a bad impression of this company in my opinion.
  6. No. This would create a huge mess and most players who levelled their chars to a high level are bound to come back at some point and it would be a kick in the teeth for them. if someone hasn’t been active since launch sure I understand. But most old players don’t play the game because it’s been managed poorly and they want to see a change before coming back and they shouldn’t lose their names because of that.
  7. Have the same issue. The game is pretty much unplayable for me after the last 2 patches.
  8. Been stuttering a lot since the last patch. The game is pretty much unplayable atm for me atleast.
  9. A lot of interesting people complaining about cheaters, How things change huh :D. But ye seen a few more cheaters lately than usual, not very smart once but cheaters nonetheless.
  10. I am sure a lot of people feel the same way which is why the population is dead. Little Orbit has added a lot of features such as the market trading system which is useful but nothing major or noteworthy to address the decline in population and interest of the game. I mean they can't even keep up with their own targets atm and have the slowest support system in the game industry at the moment.
  11. It probably has the worst support staff compared to other games out there. The waiting time is usually around 1-3 months.
  12. I feel like they introduced more. Do you even play the game? But don't get me wrong I am glad they took over they are better than G1, I just don't want them to turn into another G1 and there is a lot of stuff they have to work on or else they will be there in no time.
  13. Honestly LO feels like G1 in the beginning. Bringing a lot of hope and promises, sure they have done some good stuff like the trading system but they have introduced a lot of bugs and really bad balance updates that have driven players away. Worst thing is the fact they are giving us random eta dates and not releasing anything on dates they promise. The fact they also unbanned all the previously banned cheaters is not screaming for anyone to come back to the game. There is also the fact that some staff members from LO are promoting their friends to positions within the company. It will definitely turn into old G1 where there was corrupt gm's and a lot of staff favours for certain players. I think this company needs to restructure the people that work for them starting with Lixil, I want to have a proper community manager that is communicating with us rather than someone that's barely here and spends more time on a community discord where maybe only 10% or less of the player base is active.
  14. Better than nothing and pretty sure it's the best you can do with no purchase records. Better than letting the server rot away with no population.
