  1. I am, and have always been about the new user experience for the game. Sad to see, soo many ppl that cry about stuff yet do NOTHING to help remedy anything.

    I do understand their hesitations and frustrations however.

    This post or CALL for GM applications does not give enough information IMO.

    What is our ROLE.

     A handful of times I have seen a GM online in my 7 plus years and all I saw was all out GIMME GIMMME GIMME stuff info whatever. And incompetent GM's who are hounded, distracted by silly requests and redundant information.

    We need some REAL guidlines, Some real AUTHORITY. Some Real abilities!

    Just making a post and getting some new GMS that don't show, or will not have a real interest or just like attention is a WASTE of time and effort. 

    Lets really talk about this please.

    Myself, and I am sure many others would like to try to make a real difference. 

    From clues, I gather that if a GM it will have no realation to your other main charactes. Thats good< If I understand it correctly.

    But , there is no FAQ.

    I am all about helping NEW players. What tools would a GM have if any?

    Can I move a player from a District? With his/her permission?

    Specifically, the Trainee, Green or Bronze that ends up in Silver Stomp.

    Could I move after soo many wining missions the OBVIOUS 255 Bronze Dethreater to Silver?

    If not, Why NOT and what s the POINT?

    Can as a GM you be able to fly ABOVE or somehow view a mission in progress?

    I don't want to waste my time If I cannot truly benefit the game and progression of a new player base.

    I really think theres needs to be a open discussion, and better yet several scheduled Discord disussions on the matter.

    I have been playing off and on since 2012 and in all that time i have seen about 6 GM's and of those times it was nothing but Bernie Sanders ppl asking for free crap.

    If you are going to continue to be this single minded and not have a REAL discussion on GM;s and how they can have a real effect, well I don't know.

    I just think, that you  a great pportunity to have a lot of free help and you should not squander it again like its always been done.

    There should also be a meeting with chosen GM's to say what they will and wont do.

    My experience in all these years, are a few immature GM's that like some attention and are missing the big picture.


     I really, really want to throw my hat in the ring. I have several ideas of how to help, assist and train New players.

    But, I also enjoy the game. If this is going to be what it has always been, and not really getting down to some core issues you are wasting everyones time!




    GM's should have some kind of abilty to MOVE a player. With Consent OR after X rules without.

    A GM should be able to move a player out of a mission. This has the potential to be abused by bad or unethical GM's.

    GM's should be able to be reported by players for bias or unafairness and this should take a priority.

    If not, they are not GM's they are just Social Justice Warriors.

    And you get to keep on getting what you have always gotten.

    why anyone would volunteer to do this unpaid is beyond me.  You arent even a full gm, have limited gm abilities, and are basically a glorified forum mod.  Thats it.  Heres a thought, hire some ACTUAL GM's to police the districts.  I miss the days when they would show up and ban hammer the griefers etc.  

    Thank You!

  2. We have all heard it a million times before right? Just keep playing and MAYBE you can catch up to a 7 year lead VET with me and ALL my buddies.

    YOU are just a lowlife noob, with NO skill. 

    Well, sadly all that is true. It takes along time to get get good at this game. That being said, I want to talk about the biggest myth and lie of APB.

    It's VERY VERY TRUE that its a huge skill level. You will lose over and over again, and you should. You have alot to learn!

    Im a vet myself. I don't claim to be uber and even half good. However, I do know what the F, I am talking about from experience.

    To me the Whole game is Rock, Paper, Scissors,, and its awesome!

    I actaully kinda love it when that rare mission happens and the guys who are NOT to supposed to win, WIN!

    Matchmaking is a whole other topic, but This is the ONLY game in the world, that seems hellbent on the most lopsided matches EVER!

    Like all these tryhards for 7 years and all their buddies need help.


    I can't understand, if you take over a game from ANY level and let alone let this happen, and damn near Almost PROMOTE IT, then wonder why there is no population that still plays!!!


    Sorry, I got too many topics in my head.


    To the vets... YOU ALL LIE!


    FBW is one of the worst things in this game! I said this a year ago and got flamed hard.

    There are 2 arguments.

    I see it and get it..

    There damn sure is a skill to using FBW rhythm!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


    I am seeing the FBW VS. anything and win 110% of the time scenario.

    There is a rhythm to using the FBW. But switching shoulders with max accuracy and all the while keeping up the the fire rate??


    NOW, then we get into the Macro debate>

    Macro's dont work, they hinder you, and all that...

    OH, the most popular one is using a scroll wheel macro doesn't help.


    been experimenting with all this for a long time and it is an advantage if u know what u r doing.


    Its not like u have a Aimbot or a hack. Just like EVERYTHING ELSE it takes practice.

    But, with the right macro it works, and it works waay better than I ever thought it should!

    If YOU kill me with the FBW, I have a pretty good idea if it was you or are assisted.


    Just saying, Most of you talk alot of shit and AND HAVE A LITTTLE HELP!




    So Sad, that a hanful of delinquents decide the future of a epic game.

    Soley out of ego,

    Please give me a scenario where players with a 7 year head start, who have multiple weapon,s

     ability,map knowledge, and everyother possible advantage and have infected the culture to the extent as APB>




    Somebody is confused!

    OMG, what TF is he talking about?

    You know what, Nevermind.

    Soo sad that u needed this for so loong...

    Truth is coming....

    u rely on keeping pplin the darkeness to hide your BS.

    Yeah!, I might sound crazy but crazy TRUTH talk is what yu hate most.

    If you are wondering what all this babbling is about its just one thing.'

    You all script or macro FBW BS!

    i was really looking forward to 12 deaths of xmas and snowball mayhem tbh, but new rewards help with the disappointment 


    since this is a reskin of the halloween event will we have to deal with the heavy fog and terrible lighting/shaders or have those been altered?


    and any chance we can get previews of the new weapon skin effects?

    Hallucinogenic drugs, man they really love that fod don't they?

    No one is allowed unless they fkn Magic, and no one is allowed to acknowledge or speak about the 'Magic People', n if your not Magic, we gonna nerf all your guns to make sure your patootie loose.

     APB is no longer a casual game. Casual meaning, ya come in, play some tunes, n have some Clown Fun in a mission, oh no.. no time for clowning. Its your A-game and A-Weapon, (not the role weapon you want to work)

     70% of players are new names never seen before that day, n the next day they be another 50 new names, all golds low to mid rank, n the only way to beat them is to sneak up on one n back shoot him before his 'Magic takes over n drills ya with some op legendary, that the joker wont give to 'Non Magic's"

      Oh Yea Big Pile of fkn laughs 🤗


  5. Account bound car kits yesterday please. Unless LO don't like players spending money. 

    Everyone who bought a Vegas kit or any car for that matter would probably upgrade for account bound option. 

  6. How about for car kits.I have several characters as most. I really have to buy Vegas car kits for everyone of them. Just stupid.

    I'd gladly pay an account upgrade for it, but I won't buy it again for each one.

    Limited thinking, Do you know how many people would do this and how much money they could earn with this 1 simple thing?

    Nope, let's make satanic clothing. 

    Which takes way more time, is a limited niche thing and would make less.

    Don't make your girlies ta tas too big.

    But Satan is cool.


  7. Any ever notice how in alot of car spawns the trucks rear wheels are on a short wall off the ground?

    If it was rear wheel only it would be real fubar.

    But yea you're right need 4wd and some decent kits.

    Big tires that you could roll over cars but with a speed reduction of course.

    I think the only problem is that "gamers" nowadays are not willing to put any effort in games anymore... 

    How did we start with APB? Did we have a tutorial district? No we really wanted to "git gud" and we are still here aren't we? 


    So... lack of tutorial district or the gamers themself?

    Why can't people who say this and are the same ones that say low pop for everything be intellectually honest .

    You me we also had pop at that time and learned with peers of all skill levels.

    Imagine,  I know its hard.

    But just think what it must be like for a new person today.

    When all there is left is 5 to 8 year vets that play as a team.

    That argument is smart  that we all had to learn, it's not even close to the same thing. 

    Especially with, car spawners, meteors,  car detonators, shields, bricks, satchels, car surf and on and on and on.......

    • GTA V has a singleplayer story mode; modding is only "allowed"/greyzoned for this mode only
    • Cities Skyline is a singleplayer sandbox building game
    • BeamNG.drive is a singleplayer sandbox simulation game


    All the games that you mentioned are singleplayer games with sandboxish features. You are supposed to do shenanigans and have mods to support this.


    APB, however, is a pure PvP game with a matchmaking system and modding is out of place here. And considering the currently low population, additional custom servers that allow mods wouldn't make any sense.

    Arma 3 anyone?

    Americas Army used to be great and did this. Then they updated the game and it's small map boredom now.

    Original Battlefield was phenomenal and in many ways the series is a step backwards now.

    low population is a threat integration problem .


    FACT :   in game  golds ,golds ,golds - GOLD ARENA EMPTY 

    As much as I hate to agree with YOOD just cause he kinda be weird in game. He's RIGHT!

  11. On a side note:

    The Chronic Dethreating Criminal Clan that squatted exclusively in Bronze before is still around. But, their ring leader has been mysteriously absent for weeks since the change!....lol

    (Probably just using a diff character now)

    I still see that clan alot and theres more in the Clan now. But, there not teamed up quite as much.

    There are some good players in that clan. I won't say Good people because they can't be if you join that clan.

    Their whole MO is Dethreating to go immediately to GOLD in Bronze and Stomp new players into the ground for as long as they can stay awake.

    If you are in that clan CMON MAN REALLY! Grow UP and MAN UP! 

    If you are good and I know that some of you are, don't lower yourself to playing like that. NOOB KILLER PRO what a pathetic title.

    If you are NA I'd be happy to help you learn. 


    And that right there is what we need more of instead of sarcasm and GitGud comments. Thanks for being a True Vet and offering help and solution instead of pooping on a new guy. My opinion of you has drastically changed. Hope it actually happens.

    Put your egos aside and be a REAL Vet and do something to help out the game we all love.


    Thanks Cookie!
