While the 2014 Halloween event and new Asylum map was nice, I was sad to see Beacon removed from Fight Club. For those newer players, Asylum, the wholly unoptimized mess it is, was brought to APB as an event for Halloween, and it never left. The map itself has many areas where the game can drop 10 or 20 frames/second for some rooms and hallways, then adding explosions, and firefights, it doesn't end well for many users. I know plenty of veterans that have asked for Beacon to be brought back, and it has, a couple times for a few events, and only temporary. While Asylum was a shiny new map, it has since lost it's shine, and now, in my opinion, just been a shiny turd since being implemented into APB. Beacon was a much better map, and ran significantly better on lower end hardware, with more people in a single map than Asylum has. The height differences, tight spaces, and open roof has allowed for much more diverse experiences than the tight hallways, and cramped rooms of Asylum. Sure there are the few open areas where a long range tactics could be used, the stale gameplay in Ablington Towers will continuously force players to either camp, or exclusively rush into halls of dozens of enemies. I'd like to poll the playerbase as to see how many people actually want to bring back Beacon permanently, or rotate the maps biweekly, or monthly; everyone can enjoy their favorite map. I would very much like to hear the opinions the rest of you guys have about the two (and I guess Baylan, so three... since that's a thing) maps. Thanks, Serg
Hello! THIS IS A CALL TO ARMS! We need to band together as ONE UNIT to plead to the powers that be in Little Orbit to bring back Beacon. I mean come on yall - who likes Asylum- on the real? It's boring. It's WAY too big. It's hard to get a full district, so mostly we're just running around for FOREVER just trying to find someone to kill. And, we want frags! RIGHT? Yeah, I know. And, do you guys remember the Beacon Christmas event with the gun game? How freakin fun is that. Now, just think - we could have that YEAR round. SO JOIN ME DEAR APB FRIENDS. Fight for Beacon. LET YOUR VOICE BE HEARD. BRING BEACON BACK FROM THE DEAD @MattScott!!
