So I have played APB over the years on and off, I was well known among the EU community at one point despite not being some famous youtuber or twitch streamer. I have always had a love for APB knowing it had great potential but being sadened by the lack of cares on behalf of the previous developer G1. SO being along time since I played last, I logged on last night and today, what I was met with was lower frame rates the never before, screen freezes every 1-2 minutes, half empty districts and not even a single social district full at any one time.

 

Sitting in social district looking for people to talk to today was depressing, straight up made me get some serious sad feel's. Hardly anyone was there, nobody was talking other then 2-3 russians, the billboards where empty, car display's hadnt been bought. I mean these are things bought and sold on a weekly roleover so its not like I was just on at the wrong time of day. It literally felt like walking threw a ghost town.

 

I know Little Orbit has done little bits here and there, with there biggest edition being the Riot game mode, and I know there supposedly working hard on the engine update. But one has to wonder, is it all too little too late? I mean I understand Little Orbit means well, but they bought a game that already had an expirey date, there was no time to dilly dally, and a few new pay for guns and a game mode people can get in other more widely known and popular games really doesnt help all that much. On the note of that I don't think the engine update will help ether? why? Cus people don't know about APB, the game needs a makeover, a payed for community colaberation with streamers and youtubers to promote the game, advertisements on gaming websites and hell a new trailer. What APB need' is an official relaunch.

 

Hey you may disagree, but, I feel bleak and sad for APB's future and I really wish Little Orbit the best of luck and hope I am wrong. 😞

Wrong. This game will never expire take my words, they literally shitted on it because they cant handle it.

 

Very simple friend.

As sad as the state of the game might be, it is nothing compared to the sadness of the people from/behind LO who invested actual money in APB, after they discovered the absolute poo-pit APB is/was. Both state-of-the-game-wise as well as community-wise (unless said money-men are raging masochists, off course. And if that is the case, then I have some dubious investments ready, sure to result in even more perverted pleasure).

 

I never doubted the good intentions of LO, and I still believe they are trying their best to succeed with APB, AND I really hope it happens. But the tint of my glasses is getting less and less rosy.

I completely agree, I honestly feel in part that LO was jipped out of there money with APB lol. Like you said I dont doubt ether the good intentions of LO, I just can't see APB becomming something worth people's time without a drastic transformation in the games image on the whole.

I just don't like all the hate LO gets. They really are trying hard to work for the players. They do ONE thing, and the community just says, "fuck you." One thing I remember disgusting me was when they decided to hold the "Firecracken'" event or something by that name. Go look for that post yourself. They decided to do something nice for the community as they work on what needs to be done and yet all the replies are just hate towards LO. They really are trying. They don't deserve all the bandwagon hate.

Not fixing bugs they implemented to the game for year (radar tower and UI, huge frame stutters on specific CPU, hiding apb_catcher spamm from the task manager). Implementing useless things the community never asked for (RIOT, RFP range buff). I just feel like they're trying hard for the players

I'm guessing all LO can do now is release 3.5 and hope it brings in a big influx of players.

This will be totally pointless if they don't address the matchmaking and also the dethraters as new players will still be getting stomped on by veterans.
I think 3.5 on its own would be the worst thing LO could do without addressing the many issues of the game.

Let's say Little Orbit released the engine update tomorrow. Will you get an influx of players? yes, will those be new players? no, how long will the influx last? like a month tops then people will get bored see nothing really has changed other then a fresh coat of paint and seek greener pastures.

APB doesnt just need a new engine to suceed, the engine update is just 1 piece of the puzzel. APB need advertisement, trailer's, merchandise, a rebrand and relaunch, hype to be built threw social colaberation, new districts new content, REAL matchmaking, and a fundemental change in the games etnire core systems.

 

So yes, couldnt agree with you more, it is the worst thing LO could do just releasing 3.5 and hoping everything is hunky dory. I personally would have prefered they bought the IP off G1, shut the servers down, worked on the game over 2 years in the background all while building hype, putting out tweats, making teaser trailers, revamping the entire game, hell give the game a rename, fudge APB reloaded, rebrand it as literally just All Points Bulliton.

Anyway I could go on for ages about this, but yeah. No point cus nobody is probably listening to little ole me anyway.

It's time to start a kickstarter theme about a completely new game based on APB 

I am a developer and I know what it means to work with someone else's noodle code. You spend three o`clock as much on it than you would write from scratch.

Honestly at this point, a game based on APB would probably be better lol, aslong as it bases itself on the core fundementals IE the massive character and vehicle cutomization. Nobody wants a APB that is class based or makes you play as god aweful character's. Hell I would rather see a million over sexuallized super skinny slooty chars then 1 APB that takes notes from overwatch lol. Might I add anyone who knows me will tell you how much I hate super skinny slooty chars lol.

Point of the thread aside; This is an inaccurate representation of Citadel on average. There's a full then an overflow social almost every day in primetime on EU, the billboards and car display points are always bought on both servers, my guess is exactly what you said "things bought and sold on a weekly roleover" so it recently ended and whoever won them hasn't signed on.

 

Edit: maybe not the car disp points because they start at 60k for some reason

Lets say your even half right, back when I played, that never would have happened, cus the people who played cared enough to know the roleover times and put there shiz on IMMEDIATELY after rollover advertising there clothes or art work or clans yada yada yada. I mean I use to sell custome designed car's and I would literally be sat online waiting for the bid's to end so I could put my advertisement up on the billboard's and my car's on the display's. I mean if your right and primetime on EU is Oooo so full, well then why where the nights I played during primetime empty, where not even a full mission district was full? what I just happened to get unlucky and everyone decided to go for a pee at the same time untill I left.

I am not hating on LO at all, I just think that there is too much talk and not enough action. I don't however think that it is LO's fault, I just worry they don't have ether the capital or the manpower to unsink this ship. Like I said in my original post, I hope I am wrong, but I am not someone who is going to let optamism overcome realistic prognosis.

I can swear the last time I read a post of yours it said again how well known you were.

lol well, I have been even quoted by people, and I get messages weekly from people on my discord and steam friends being like "oh we miss you Motoko and Naomi" lol so XD I mean common.... not being funny, just even the fact you have read a post of mine speaks for itself lol. I mean both me and my partner where semi infamous in the game and forum, for both my posts and us strictly only using "trash guns" in the game.

Ive already uninstalled and will only reinstall once the engine is done. If performance on multicore cpu's doesnt improve dramatically, ill be done for good. Been playing since 2010. This is a last chance scenario for me. The way performance has degraded over the years really is a dealbreaker. With the way the game lags and stutters during firefights, i find myself extremely irritable when playing... not really having fun anymore. Even if nothing else changes, i would be satisfied with a smooth experience.

no.

they would stumble their coding over each other doing the same thing.

unproductive and waste of money and time.

You do know Little Orbit has only been here a little over a year now and clearly didn't neglect the game to this state right?

only a year to break so much and to not even fix what they have broken
another white knight

cheater go learn how to program before you try to act like you know something.

because if you knew something you'd know APB was broken long before Little Orbit started working on it.

you would also know that with the old coding if you fix one thing  it breaks two others fro the spaghetti coding.

Why do you you think so many of us have already said this and have been waiting as patiently as possible

I kinda feel the same way, really, when i tried to play it was hard to even fight for the most part, firing would start, my screen would freeze and then I would be dead when it unfroze lol
