  1. COMPLETELY different things. You are playing a classless TPS, where both factions have the same exact loadouts except one has access to a type of weaponry that the other doesn't have, for no reason other than "FaCtIoN IdEnTiTY." Heavy using a sniper would be unbalanced, it would effectively double the snipers health pool and only lower movement speed. Medic using a high DPS weapon while being able to pump heals out isnt balanced, obvious reasons Paladins wear plate so that makes zero sense, sure some of their BiS pieces can be cloth but they can wear plate, allowing them to cast fireballs wouldnt make any sense and they'd probably rarely use it (all within classic WoW game logic, since every other MMO is irrelevant and dead anyway) Giving a rogue the ability to out-heal other healing classes and buff others without the use of a pally would be broken, and would kill off other classes viability. Giving crims LTL because Enforcers have LTL wont do shit to the balancing of the game, it will only enable both factions to have access to the same exact weapons. It wont make enforcers obsolete, it wont make crims better, it will literally do nothing bad to the balance of the game.
  2. Hard to derive sarcasm from a statement that is commonly made by trash players almost monthly. It seems you aren't being sarcastic, because you bring up the whole "identity" thing, which nobody realistically benefits from or gives a damn about anymore. If "identity" matters so much, crim can have their own scuffed LTL variant with some dumb theme that fits it. The only LTL weapon that isn't trash is the pig, and the only thing good about it is it allows u to play like a defensive surprise, even with a low TTK. All other LTL weapons are awful because they have tremendously higher TTKs, allowing them to be outgunned by pretty much everything that isn't an LTL.
  3. You just missed about 2 weeks of NA ping on Citadel, was the perfect opportunity to opp people you never get to play against on your own ping, and level cit characters.
  4. I really hate when people act as if either faction has any real "identity" when the only difference between the two is sirens, paying off bounty, driving into stores, LTL and mugging. The factions are far from unique, and have been for years. How can you take this so seriously and act like it even matters anymore? The only people who play nowadays are players who've been around for nearly a decade, I can't imagine anyone quitting or getting upset because "waah, crims got LTL varients, there's no reason to play enforcer anymore." Players who hop between crim/enf understand how unnecessarily inconvenient this makes playing APB. If I want to go LTL, I HAVE to disregard player population and character progression on my crim and play enf. People say LTL is trash, and it is, but if it's so garbage, then why do you care if crim has access to it too? do you morons not want to level your role on your crims too? I really don't understand the gatekeeping. Also, if I wanna play APB without getting bounty every 10 minutes and worrying about an out-of-mission silver HVRing me in a TDM stage, I have to play crim in order to pay it off. Even though Little Orbit said they'd remove the bounty system soon, making the 1 actual useful "crim identity trait" completely useless, but nobody seems to be complaining about this, so it's puzzling as to why people act like they care about lore/roleplaying BS when they clearly don't care?
  5. "waah, i have to play on jericho ping for a couple of weeks, even though jericho players had to play on my ping for years, waah"
  6. why are you acting like the JG isn't the best pump rn? even before pellet changes, JG is a better shotgun for hard damage, so it is situational. CSG has been garbage for an entire year.
  7. grown men manage to get rank 14 in WoW with full-time job. if you seriously cant do a 12 hr grind in just a week, then u probably shouldn't do the grind, or complain about it to ruin the achievement for others who've already achieved it.
  8. 10.5 hours to get an achievement that u care about it's not even a full day. it's a cakewalk compared to the stuff that classic WoW or OSRS makes you do lol
  9. someone who uses something braindead and not fun, pretty much forcing you to play the same way. some people can have an ntec or an hvr glued to their hands for a decade, and still find APB enjoyable somehow lmao
  10. love how people link yongyeas videos all the time when this topic pops up, but they completely disregard the fact that his videos are about companies who make games for children to gamble on, or companies that sell $60 games with lootboxes. Yong has said time and time again that he believes lootboxes on Free to Play titles are understandable, since the game needs to be monetized somehow. JMBs are hardly predatory, players cannot gain any advantage over other players with JMBs that are otherwise accessible in game, for free.
  11. report them then dont report them and suffer through the 6 hours of racism you chose to endure.
  12. I meant by LO themselves, they've commented about these issues, and for some they've commented more than a few times about them.
  13. everything you've listed has a change in the works, and have been addressed multiple times throughout the past year.
  14. APB is an egomaniac magnet lmao
  15. So someone using an ESP on APB isn't hacking? Obtaining information which otherwise would be restricted to the user to gain an advantage... which is cheating... but it isn't hacking?
  16. Just because a weapon is off-meta, doesn't mean it's bad or needs to be buffed. Bullshark is a niche weapon that is fun to use every now and then (like most legendaries.) The FAR is a star reskin, and the star is probably the most balanced gun in APB, the Cobra is meant to be a full-auto carbine (similar to how the ar97 is a full auto obeya rifle) and it acts exactly as such. They are well aware of what weapons are used the most, and which weapons need to be changed. The only thing they need help with is applying the correct changes to these weapons to get them where they need to be. Prototype districts are provided to the players so that they can give feedback and help make balance decisions for whatever weapon(s) being tested. Addressed dozens of times. Either way, RIOT was in the works before LO, so it makes sense that they would finish it, but at the same time, it is something that nobody asked for. When has this ever happened within the past year LO has owned APB?
  17. I don't know why you think this would prevent hacking. I don't know why you have a problem with people using configs so that their game can run at 100fps+ without any stutters (stutters happen way too much on high/max settings.) I don't know why you somehow don't know that newer hardware runs the game just as bad as older hardware, I have an rtx 2070 and an r7 2700x and still have performance issues that render the game unplayable at anything above minimum. I never really understood the "fuck configs, get a better PC" mentality. The people who complain and say that configs are OP and unfair are the same people who play at 60fps max settings and claim it's "perfect" after disregarding the frameskips that happen almost every minute. If you're the type of player to play this game at max settings and at low fps, with situations where you'd randomly lose 140-300~ frames and your game freezes, you probably don't give an ounce of a fuck about performance, so why are you shitting on optimization methods that other players choose to use? Every player is allowed to play at minimum settings, no matter what hardware they have. Every player is allowed to boot up AAPBL and make their game Claypb, no matter what hardware they have. If you choose to play this game at max settings and 50-80fps with a shit ton of hiccups and clutter, that's your choice, that's the type of player you are, but don't act like everyone else needs to play how you play. Stadia will be a failure of a project, and APB on Stadia would make no sense, since you'd be paying to play a F2P TPS. Also, the amount of money you would have to spend to receive ideal performance through Stadia on APB would drive anyone away. Not to mention the fact that game streaming for competitive shooters or just shooters overall isn't really a good idea, nobody wants to play with more input lag than their mice/keyboard already provide.
  18. I feel like most people just join the prototype districts, equip the guns, shoot them for 5/10 minutes (maybe even do a mission,) and then leave. I can't really blame them though.
  19. Wow, the guy who 4 mans against solo players and loses, and griefs them post-mission after being stomped has been permanently banned. Handful of your clanmates should be banned for dethreating.
  20. Shield is broken, med spray is pretty much useless for most players since CA is so meta, boombox does exactly what it was designed to do, but doesn't really do much in the first place so idk how you could change it in any significant way, satchel charge and epinephrine are probably the most "balanced" consumables in the game, Weapon cache/vtines day box are fine, but the secret santa box feels so useless after the christmas event is over, and I wish you could open them off-season . As for medium/large resupply boxes, I don't understand why the medium boxes exist since it seems like a huge waste of JT, and large boxes are just better. Large boxes are being nerfed so no comment.
  21. swarm, scout pr1, ATAC, stheno, and the wisp are the worthwhile ones imo. stheno would be especially valuable since you skip the whole "spend 1 billion g1c" loyalty meme. AMG is a really braindead easy gun to use and has a low ttk, it's very effective in most situations.
  22. Shroud expressed his interests in it with Summit a bit ago, but if u asked me to find the vod, no way i could prove it tbh.
  23. Why sponsor them? Shroud and Summit already said they'd try 3.5/4.0 when they come out, no reason to pay them to play APB. I doubt LO would be able to match the typical sponsor offers that EA/Activision offers them anyway.
