  1. For the meme or did you not read the anniversary letter?
  2. I was going to write this reply to you in a message on discord but actually... I think I want other people to know how I feel even if they don't care. There's trying to be quietly optimistic, supportive and patient... And then there's waiting for over 7 years for something that became meme, It's been so long that the Q1 2014 and Soon™ memes stopped being funny and actually feels insulting! As much as I love APB and want the very best for it, It's beyond the point of considering what is best for it. I'm not going to be wasting my time, energy, emotion and money on what is a metaphorical black hole. It'll be the closest thing to a miracle I've seen if/when the engine upgrade is complete. I admit... I give up... I'm not waiting for the second coming of Jesus Christ here! After 10 years, I've lost hope for APB, I'm not having fun anymore. I can only hope someone at Little Orbit reads this and realises just how deeply I feel. Que sera, sera.
  3. After 2018 with the Epidemic, the GM hosted events with the autumn assault, and then the Slay Bells all in a span of 3 or 4 months... It was then I knew that Little Orbit was naïve, testing the waters and are not take feedback from player on what needs to be addressed, what we'd like to see, what works well and what we'd like to see improved. With events bringing back trolls, some hackers, potentially distracting focus from development, If such naive actions were being done on events, It was inevitable that the engine upgrade was going to be underestimated. After 3 years, there isn't an excuse for floundering. As much as one tries to keep spirits up of fellow community members, there's only so much slack that can be given. People can say just polish the game and do another ad campaign to recruit new players but customer acquisition vs retention is always going to be in favour for the loyal customers that keep returning. There is only so much polishing you can do and the cracks that show in APB are too big to ignore. Also there is a point where polishing the game is no longer viable considering the engine is being pushed to it's limit in capability. In the past people suggested just make APB from the ground up as a new game, I didn't like the idea before of starting over, but in hind sight it probably would of been easier and quicker to do. I used to be addicted to APB and also love this game to the point of hating the flaws and mistakes, but now emotionally I feel like I'm back with the old GamersFirst... I'd rather just see APB shut down the servers and have a dignified.
  4. Long time no see To be honest, at the turn of the new year I found myself at a point where I stopped looking at the engine upgrade weekly notes from Matt and stopped playing. I know 1 person who stopped playing back in 2017 who said they'll play APB when the engine upgrade happens. Likewise I would play APB once the engine upgrade is complete but in the mean time there just isn't enough incentive for me to stick around. There are other games that run better and have new content coming out so why play APB even with free premium. The chicken and egg of encouraging new players before or after the engine upgrade is quite the long running debate. Honestly I rather not try and get new players if the game is not offering a great experience or anything new... I mean it's already free to play! There's only so mush that polish can do and polish isn't going to hide the cracks that are showing.
  5. Hello, I would like to express an interest in potentially joining. -edit- Didn't notice this was for EU only. If it's ok, maybe I could be having a trail period to get an idea how I feel being in this clan?
  6. Armas has had a rework to G1c which has made it 20% cheaper, also because of the international health crisis and pandemic. Premium has been awarded indefinitely although temporary time. The rework of Armas started back in 2018.

    Disable things

    Sexually provocative images are not against the Terms of Service unless it has visible genitalia, persons under 18 however ARE bannable! This game is not targeted, intended for, or suitable for children or those easily offended. Sorry but western priorities: Women's nipples are somehow more offensive than shooting someone!
  8. If you force a restriction then it will only drive those determined enough to evade it even harder. MattScott said that LittleOrbit intend to add "Phasing" as a new form of matchmaking, players will be matched up automatically rather than segregating threat and making districts population numbers lower. Threat segregation is what caused dethreating in the first place.
  9. Little Orbit is not limiting it, the game's coding and the physical servers have limits. The more complex a design, the more memory and processing power needed and that isn't quickly accumulates when a district can hold over 50 players. I'd suggested looking back at your character and see if there is any way to simplify or make shortcuts in your the designs.
  10. Nearly everything in Armas is has 20% off, you get vast more customization limitations lifted, more contact standing and in game money bonus. I don't mean to be rude but you sound a little ungrateful considering LittleOrbit is carrying on their normal work load from their own homes, and you think you deserve an even further discount despite the premium given out of generosity is indefinite? How about showing Little Orbit some support during this difficult time.
  11. They lower settings to get the most frame rates for a competitive edge or because their higher end modern PC have technical difficulties with the current outdated game engine. Either way to answer your question, max settings or minimum settings. All that would happen is a minor different in reaction time possibly but only my a millisecond. A good aim is a good aim. You can down vote me now salty!
  12. The HVR is a hard weapon to balance as it's meant to do high damage and very accurate. You said it yourself that low walls which cover the hit box provides cover, but that as a issue is something that affects the map and not just shields. Maybe movement from cover could have more bloom reworked for snipers too, I don't know. Deplayable shields are just that... a shield and can provide very good strategic options. Ok a few things could be reworked but jumping with medium items or dropping and picking up large items to help a player move faster is another issue. I don't know what G1 were thinking with car surfer! Blocking passages with shields could be done with any deployable if it's the right size. It may be frustrating but an exploit is something which gives an unfair advantage, something like putting a bag out of bounds. There needs to be a level of consideration for player's ingenuity and adaptability. I would suggest that all deployables have a equip time cool down just like when you pull out a gun or reload.

    A new threat level?

    I think that the colour pink doesn't give a serious enough reflection for players of the highest threat. Little Orbit I believe has the intention to add colour blind mode for APB once the engine upgrade is live. Platinum could be used as a light blue.
  14. Previous anticheats wrongfully flagged suspicious computer applications. Fair Fight is server side rather than client side so it struggle to tell the difference between a marco and a really good player, as do you it seems. How many people do you think are cheating right now? lets say 10%? 10% of 10% wouldn't get banned... yeah 1% of 500 players is 5 players, so less than 1 per server physical server. Terror is right. it was a challenge for people to reroll into new accounts, and it was a achievement to some when they get banned multiple times while causing grief to other players in game. Some of them posted videos of them doing it on youtube proudly. ...I'm sorry if you don't feel reassured but you don't need verification and these trolls do not need to be fed any more attention. Personally I feel that asking for numbers of bans to be published isn't a bad or detrimental idea but a bit of a mute point if you're suspicious of current anticheat, If you don't think it's effective then why do you think the number would be reassuring.
