  1. Recently I've discovered this sleeper hit of the mobile shooter gameplay (on PC emulator, mind you) - Tacticool 5x5 PvP shooter. The game has 4.7 stars both in AppStore and PlayStore and according to some articles its cost to release was only $950k. Probably because it has extremely simple character design. However the gameplay itself is absolutely brilliant. In short - you don't have to target and click mouse button precisely, characters do that themselves once you point them into enemy direction. As the result gameplay is actually tactical, instead of mindless button mashing of traditional boring shooters. I don't like PvP (including APB variant) because it's exhaustive, but with this game I had to force myself to stop playing. And the game seems extremely profitable with Lego-brick-like characters cost $110 (!) each + totally P2W weapons cost $60 a pop (* 5 types). And there are multiple subscription types on top. I believe any company developing shooters should make a mod of that gameplay. Or better yet - a whole new game. It's like DotA was to RTS strategies - but for shooters genre, something totally new and much more fun than the base gameplay. Those who will be among first developers - will have a chance to become a new Riot.
  2. I got 48 hours account suspension 2 months later (!) after I was in a group with this overly efficient random player (I have played 2-3 matches monthly, at best - so I remember them all). Or maybe after I've used newly acquired Ogre to obliterate a random 5* player who attempted to shoot me while I was transporting a stolen car to the garage. Apparently LO support decided I am a cheater too, somehow (having K/D ratio like 1:4 kek) Now I'm too afraid to leave social district - to avoid losing my premium guns collection to an unjustified ban. Outside of market trades the game is pretty much over. Any clarification / assurance the devs don't ban me out of the blue while testing yet another inept anti-cheat? (account is from 2013 btw)
  3. As a casual gamer I don't see how 0-10 JT / average 1 per game affects me? If the idea was to increase participation (rather than to make APB afull-time job for people blessed with unemployment) - then it should be 2 games daily with 20 guaranteed tickets, with 100 weekly cap or whatever. And then daily 2 mission bonus is depleted - make it 1 ticket per game for those blessed with unemployment, till weekly cap is depleted.
  4. Not too long ago there was a historical period when North America and Australia had much less than 8.8% of migrant population. And look where are the natives today. Aborigines of Australia = 0,5% of population. 1.6% in US. If you'll check population census of US in 19th century - you'll see how it takes only a century to replace natives with migrants and it requires only 3-3.5% migrant population growth rate.
  5. Exactly. And considering latest EU trends I assume Arabic should be the common language.
  6. Just do the usual routine - add 4-5 most chatty people to ignore and chat becomes calm.
  7. Considering new PvP mode couldn't save the IP - how about PvE mode? I'd pay 19.95$ for horde / wave defense DLC (with bots in case of low player count).
  8. I got first false positive account suspension in 2013. After I got another false positive account suspension a year ago - I've stopped visiting action districts completely. If your account wasn't banned yet that's not because you don't use cheats but because you are new - or lucky.

    Error in the update

    I've opened task manager, killed two APB error processes. Game started normally after that (where "normally" means "re-installing DirectX upon every launch")

    Sudden trade lock

    Correct, got some major Windows update yesterday.

    Sudden trade lock

    Six+ years old account. Purchased an inexpensive gun off exchange like a week ago. Sold pants and a shirt for 250k on exchange today (D.Va costume, purchased few days ago on exchange but it turned out they aren't compatible with a minuscule tattoo). Got "47+ hours trade lock" message upon login. Cannot list anything on exchange (I relist 5 symbols daily). This is strange.
  12. I've dreamed about this day since 2013. This is a whole new epoch for the game. Thanks for the change, LO! And grats, everyone! edit: although I suspect my legendaries now cost twice less than yesterday.
  13. LO are doing good but not terribly successful. If only anyone there could get an idea to copy Warframe (i.e. PvE game with million+ active players and 5-10 different modes including 3 defense modes) or maybe World War Z (zombie shooter which sold 2 millions copies in a month without any advertisement) instead of ... I don't know what they are copying exactly?
  14. Thanks! My alt account (created ten months ago) didn't receive it btw. Probably level /playtime is too low. I had hope to kickstart it with the premium...
  15. It could be easier if the game didn't take like 5+ minutes to launch each time I'm checking premium status: couple minutes to re-install DirectX, then a minute to load (on SSD!), then couple minutes of intros which I've seen hundreds times (cannot be skipped somehow). And considering how the game actually has only a handful of players - LO could as well just enable premium for everyone till the game will start gaining numbers from new engine and new mode...
  16. Trading, BattleEye, unbanning were nice. Still not enough to make the game actually fun. Whole gameplay have to be expanded to make the game popular (and not into PvP, but into PvE horde mode) - and single battle royale mode won't help (there are tons of BR games with ~0 population already) and LO won't be able to do anything else.
  17. DirectX constantly re-installs itself on freshly installed game. Client was downloaded from this site two days ago. Happened with two previous installations too (winter, autumn).
  18. Getting the error... Try couple days later? edit: nevermind, login worked on second attempt - and then "APB ran out of memory" alert and shutdown. Also launcher is still re-installing DirectX upon every launch - almost a year later after this issue appeared. Tis is hopeless.
  19. At least it work / load pages much faster now. As for prices - I remember how I wasn't happy with 5-10$ guns in Planetside 2 because apprently you need more than 5 and that makes them cost on par with AAA games...
  20. > If you feel you have been banned unfairly, please make a ticket with support at https://support.gamersfirst.com. I've uninstalled the game in August after 48 hours account suspension, out of fear to get banned and lose all the premium stuff I got - even though I didn't participate in PvP since May, then I've played couple rounds in action districts + couple rounds in fighting club with k/d ratio like 1:5 (I'm bad). I've sold symbols on exchange and transported stolen cars few times a week + got shot by notorious players and returned fire in the process handful of times. When I've asked support about the reason of suspension - explanation was "cheating" instead of "false positive". I don't believe company has enough expertise to spot the difference. Maybe a year or two later. Good luck to everyone involved!
  21. Happy new year, enforcers and criminals of San Paro!
  22. Microtransactions are fine - just check Warframe and its 30-120k online + "platinum" / highest sales level on Steam despite their record-high discounts (I'm getting up to 87.5% discounts compared to nominal prices). It's just some business owners and devs with $120k+ salaries fail to see the difference between a microtransaction and $10-20-50 not-so-micro transaction. So instead of 100 * $2 guns we get 10 * $20 guns and p2w accusations which work as a repellent against players and in the end turns game and its mechanics into a whale hunt.
  23. So far I've spent $10 on APB during ~6 years. And I've dumped hundreds $$$ into Warframe because they provide 50% discount for third-world countries - and 75% coupons on top of that.
  24. I don't understand the post. Are there any permanent / interesting rewards or should I play other games? Those Q's tickets aren't going to farm themselves in STO and BDO's archer won't level himself up.
  25. I got 48 account suspension and cheating accusation after *not using* any cheating engines and software. Make your guess.
