Unbanning will occur after we lock servers tomorrow.

I don't understand would you rather let them leave your accounts banned? You're getting unbanned be happy about it you have to pay a small price for it! If G1 was still in control you would still be shit out of luck on getting unbanned.

Can you give an exact number on how many people are going to get unbanned tomorrow Matt?

Never heard locking servers before.

Was it always like that?

I mean, I'm happy about all this, but honestly, as someone who's deeply invested in APB's economy. . . I really don't think letting hackers have their money would make a huge difference.

 

First off, you have to consider that missions will never be as fast as creating or trading for making money. I doubt even a good hacker could make a mil a week without spending a shit ton of time, but I know people who could make a mil for every item they create if they really want, and I know I personally could easily make 5-10mil a week if I tried at all back when trading was big.

 

Second, you have to figure that this only really penalizes people whose assets are liquid. Not that I got banned, but I, for example, have millions and millions of APB$ worth of legendaries, and don't even have a 1mil in cash. I know a lot of players who were banned must have had fortunes in symbols, themes, and legendaries.

 

Plus, since more players is going to inflate the economy more anyways most likely, a few billion / trillion or whatever added back into the economy isn't going to do much in the long-term anyways.

 

 

Anyways, I appreciate it, and I'll be happy to have some friends back, but I really just don't see how removing their liquid assets helps.

i guess if people cry hard enough on the forums they get what they want, they convinced little orbit to wipe our stuff after all, penalizing honest players is just very poor decision making. i can't wait to get into mission district and try to spawn my pioneer for 100 dollars.

Taking away some monopoly money shouldn't really be something to start crying over, if you're given a new chance with your account that has potentially hundreds of dollars worth of real money purchases. Yes it may suck for someone who has potentially been banned for no reason, but then again, quite a few bans have happened and I'd like to think that they have mostly been for actual reasons, yet almost nobody has come to forums and say "sorry, I've done bad things"...

We are unbanning players caught up in the KTTC and FFA issues. We aren't in a position to do refund anyone prior to Little Orbit taking over. But I will grant G1C to players who paid on or after May 10th to unlock their accounts.

 

PLEASE be patient with Customer Support. We have just unbanned thousands of players, and they will be swamped even more than they are now. If you paid for an unban, please open a ticket and we will get you sorted out.

Nice that you unban all the poor KTTC boys ...
But why on earth would you unban FFA exploiters as well ?
Also I would have deleted all legendarys on every unbanned account too.

I'm one of the few that has, actually. Though TiggsSquad on the old forums often deleted everything I posted.
