  1. wrote that other reply almost asleep and forgot the rest lol, I wanted to reply saying: don't worry, me and my friends played without any sort of cheat or macro or overlay always (just like any other game any normal person plays, without any modifications whatsoever) and we never had any of the problems these people whine about. Its very likely they are attempting to get on the devs' good side by playing innocent. This tactic went on for years with closet cheaters and gamersfirst, lets hope LittleOrbit does not hear them and stand their ground with the banning decisions.
  2. With the amount of high ranking closet cheaters in this game that have never been banned that have spent thousands of dollars in hacks and armas stuff, and those few that make the hacks and sell them.., I'm not surprised they'd come here and say "I was banned out of nowhere and I've been playing for 10 years with no problems". So I can't really believe the OP. It will be up to the devs to decide with what info they have.
  3. Well, the APB community is mostly made out of toxic people, that also use some sort of hack or aiding software to play. So them complaining means nothing, but LO listens which is a mistake. Thats mistake 1. Mistake 2 is that I don't think LO is ready to develop a game of this magnitude. I said it once before, now I say it again and with good reason. They have one too many problems fixing the game as if they don't fully understand anything about it. But also they don't look at the obvious problems that could occurr just like preparing to get a lot of people swarming online when a beta releases, more people than currently the base game has. You can't go in there using a closed beta version used by 10 people when there is 5000 people trying to log in. Triple A companies had this problem too, I remember it happening in a couple of games, but those guys at least prepared for lets say 50k people logging in which was double the current playerbase, while they got lets say triple that amount instead, it was difficult to have foreseen such thing because of the higher numbers, but here in APB you have a small playerbase even if 5k people log in... and your servers can't handle that? This game is doomed.
  4. I meant that if the guy is questioned about the crosshair he can just go "its an overlay" while perhaps there is a 50% chance it is actually part of a cheat, and people will have to believe the guy. Therefore he proves his legitness by saying he is using an overlay.
  5. This. The update has a good idea about removing lootboxes, but the % chance is still there. People will still have to spend money for a small %, only now with a roof limit of sorts. The only thing that the 100$ cost does is put a maximum price on the chance of getting a gun. The problem is not just that black markets sell for less (I guess you did your research? i haven't seen a black market for APB, well actually never looked), but those guns JUST. AINT. WORTH. THAT MUCH. For example. I can get a permanent osmaw for 10.000 tickets. But the volcano will cost me 50.000. Its not worth to invest in the volcano. Also many legendary guns are just not good enough to be spending that much tickets or even having them. The ingame auction is full of people selling the legendaries for ever decreasing prices since nobody wants them because of how bad those are. People can barely get 300ish tickets per week through fightclub since there are no players left and fightclub is zero players most of the time, and when it isn't it is always dominated by 3 or 4 people from questionable clans with questionable "skills" that apparently never get detected making the challenges a hell of a chore. Joker tickets are too hard to get right now to spend months grinding for 50k tickets and get a mediocre gun. I rather grind that much to get 5, yes five, guns of equal or better quality than just one legendary gun. You will see what I'm talking about when no player spends tickets on some of the legendary guns ever. Because those are not good enough, or just not worthy if we can get a 100% chance equal or better non legendary version. Buffing the guns would still not fix this since buffing them enough that it would be worthy to invest 100$ on them would mean to break the game with unbalance issues. I suggest you people adjust the prices of the legendary guns in both tickets and % of permanent drop chance according to how good they are, or how strong people want to have them.
  6. Yeah I kind of didn't phrase it correctly there. But anyways, if the anticheat doesn't detect it I can go blatant with any sort of thing, record a video where the only part of the cheat that is recorded is the extra crosshair and show it as proof of legitness. If any sort of aid is absolutely not allowed then people can't have an excuse for something like this. Also why would you use a crosshair overlay?? the game already has a crosshair when it is needed at almost all times, having one extra crosshair just tells me you are into the less than obscure software that enhances games which is just a step before using triggerbots and then aimbots. I have never ever seen a gameplay video of a shooter using any sort of aid of whatever. The only game I have seen this in my 30 years of gaming is just here on APB, the place where I also have seen way more hackers than on counter strike, and that is a thing.
  7. But how do you know if the guy is using a crosshair overlay or he is using the crosshair from a hidden aimbot? Thats where LO failed. You can't know the difference just by looking at it in a video. It could be that the crosshair is the only thing appearing on the video but in reality the guy has all sorts of cheats all over the screen he alone can see.
  8. When did they feign ignorance and catch people? What I have seen so far is a perpetuation of the "no name and shame" tactic from G1 (also they are keeping the name G1, why??? super strange) coupled with the announcement of that the anticheat is on manual mode. This is telling me right out the bat that they are not planning on banning anyone unless the guy is very blatant about it I guess. Also I'm beginning to think that FairFight didn't falsely ban people. Perhaps those people were using macros and or triggerbots and considered those as "normal", some because they had them in their mouse or keyboard hardware. But a macro or triggerbot is a cheat, because a cheat is a cheat. Also a crosshair overlay is a cheat, what if a gun or action doesn't show a crosshair on purpose for balance issues? A cheat is a cheat.
  9. I want to comment here just to say some constructive criticism. I see a lot of you guys have the "Transformers syndrome". Can any of you guys out of the top of your head draw any of the transformer robots from the movies? I don't think so. The "Transformers syndrome" is when you put so many details in a character that it ends up being extremelly confusing and hard to remember. Take a look at the characters from the contacts from the days of RTW APB and then take a look at the characters posted here. You will see a difference. Characters from the original game are quite simplistic or if they have a lot of confusing symbols, tattoos and shapes in the clothes they compensate with unique features and colors. Some of them could be improved because of this, but overall many of the original characters are perfect because they are simple. Remember that a character made for the game should be memorable. (example: who's the new contact? the guy with the red afro). Many of you (not all of you) have done it the transformers way, so keep in mind you could ask someone else to see your character and ask again the next day if they can draw it for you, so to see if they remember anything. As for me, I'd have to modify my char too much to submit something worthy to the challenge, and I'm just not gonna do it, neither do I have the time. So good luck to you guys, I hope the character chosen has something to do with what Joker is about: jokes and ammo, with the white-black-red-green colors. And as for me and my character, I can say it is a very good example of how not to fall into the transformers syndrome, Anyone that has seen my char ingame remembers it and its so simple that it can be drawn in a second, yet it has a personality. Learn from the mistakes of other people! Learn from Michael Bay.
  10. Personally, after the switch to BE, for a few days the population went downhill very fast. But now I'm seeing new accounts with low level characters that are gold and clearly hacking, more and more. Its probably that they are testing with new throw away accounts, and others are waiting for the coast to clear just like someone in here said. But the problem feels is getting worse. There are more suspicious new characters than before. It could be that BE is not that good. Also I'm seeing people that I know are cheating going online like nothing is happening.
  11. This is a bug so old that I can vouch for it existing since I started playing in 2011. Whenever you are aiming too close to a car, the rocket will fire with an angle opposite to the position of the car. It is annoying as hell, as you can see in the screenshot above, and it could mean life or death. One time I suspected it was a broken feature that would stop you from firing if you were going to hit the hitbox of a car you were too close to, stopping you from dying, and the devs just forgot to adjust it properly and add the unable to fire function, or probably realised the best way was to leave that as it was and let the player kill himself if he wanted or he made a mistake (which is the way to go). But then I realised that I was not even aiming at the hitbox, otherwise in the same position I wouldn't be able to shoot with guns. Anyways, it could be hitbox related. So this could be a bigger issue, I don't know. The devs should look at what this is and at the cars' hitboxes vs rockets.
  12. Problem 1: You can resupply in Joker Machines, cars with resupply mod, and ammoboxes, but also in Car Spawners (wtf??) Also you can change weapons in them, they work just like joker machines. Fix this or add Joker machines next to all of them if thats the intention. Problem 2: You can spam explosives if you stand next to any of these Solution 1: Stop car spawners from giving ammo. Make explosives resupply super slow. Solution 2: Stop car spawners from giving ammo. Make explosives never resupply on anything but Joker machines and personal ammobox. (I think the devs took this route, or perhaps its just a bug, because the consumable ammo boxes did resupply explosives some time ago, but now they don't. Resupplying explosives did take more ammo than regular guns from those boxes. Solution 3: Stop car spawners from giving ammo. Make grenades have a timer instead. Solution 4: Stop car spawners from giving ammo. Make grenades have one use per death, only resupplying after you respawn. Make it count. Solution 5: Stop car spawners from giving ammo. Make explosives have a hidden timer until you can resupply again, stopping the spam. The timing could be 30 second, 1 minute, i don't know which could be more balanced.
  13. Well, as I said once and again, all the ones saying they lag are strangely suspicious, like some guy I read recently on the steam discussions that said the same thing and had a VAC ban ....
  14. I think I can read broken english. Translation: "Good idea but then they must ban the cheaters. And I don't see why would they want people who are cheating and are SPCT at the same time, that says it all. People cheating for weeks with high rank accounts and streaming it on twitch. Ban the cheating fks or my break from the game will be longer" She/He is saying that some SPCT and twitch streamers are hacking and nobody bans them. I can't really deny the logic since lots of people were denouncing this at some point. Maybe some were hackers, maybe they no longer hack, i don't know, but they shouldn't be anything important if they were, let alone if they still are cheating. I guess the ones denouncing this just left the game for dead and went away like Eviltara here. With every day that passes I also feel like doing the same after seeing all that.
  15. A military Shemagh (right now the only way to do this is to use scarfs and bandit masks with some tattoos which looks not very good up close)
