I feel like if anything, it is all of us who should be thankful for what you and your team have done over the past year or so for this game. Let us not forget that barely a year ago, APB looked certain to die a slow, painful and silent death.
Sure, things may not exactly be fantastic at present and people might've had bigger (if not unrealistic) expectations but I don't think any of that should take away from the work that you've all done and the actual, demonstrable progress that has been made. I don't even think that the RIOT update is something that will interest me too much (at least not compared to the engine update), but it is certain to breathe new life into the game and really, what else can anyone ask for at this point?
Huge props to you and your team for not only owning your failures, but also pushing on nonetheless. That's a very, very welcome change from a year ago.
