Feedback on East/West addition

Recommended Posts

So I thought I would provide my feedback on the new addition of East and West to the districts

 

it appears that mostly East districts are being used. This puts west coasters at a slight performance disadvantage

 

also districts have been more laggy than before this change

 

what is the plan to keep the remaining population around?

 

waterfront is not even available rather often

 

sorry, I realize I veered away from feedback but this also needed to be mentioned

You just move to citadel and hoping that the population there doesn't die as well.

 

Lets face it. There is no way out of this situation unless they merge the servers into one. Thread segregation or not, they can't just pick add more people to the game to make it playable if there aren't any.

At least West/Central servers were playable for me from Aus. But East kinda kills it.

I think the addition of East/West options is more for the future than the present.

 

APB is a money sink right now. Unless the big changes happen the game is likely doomed. So everything is probably geared towards being able to do a sort of relaunch of the game. Current pop probably doesn't matter so much both because its too small to keep the game afloat, and because the game currently is not in a state in which it can attract enough pop to be profitable.

 

tl;dr keeping 400 players happy is maybe a lower priority than making the game profitable for the future

...So what you're saying things are pretty much the same as they were last month, the difference is there are localised instances now.

 

The new localised instances was the latest move in preparing for the future of APB with phasing being the new way matchmaking is going to be handled. Bare in mind the vision of Little Orbit is to not have coloured threat districts and rather localised districts and the game with match up players by threat automatically.

 

As for population and waterfront, yeah nothing has changed there in the past 2 years. It may feel diluted with new instances but I believe Little Orbit will be putting out new content and effort in attracting new players after the Engine Upgrade

 

Previous media and advertising campaigns have given a rather short burst of new players. But because APB is overall does looks old compared to other modern games, and gameplay experience has been a steep learning curve as well as uninviting, not a great number of new players have stayed.

 

It has been a running chicken and egg debate of whether should effort be focused trying to up the population numbers and the issues surrounding them or fixing APB and finishing the Engine Upgrade.

I like the changes but whats bugging me and well it probably a bug too is that when you select a friend and click on "join district" if gives you a error message saying that the district is not found , you can however manually join them (going to the district list and clicking the one they are in and clicking join)

Most ppl dont like WF, its a pop choice that leaves ppl who need contacts there high and dry. You dont have a NA pop left so its whatever dist gets populated is where ppl go wether it be east or west. More segregation was exactly what we needed to make fuller districts no? #sarcasm

Been trying to get my nephew to play with three of his friends. Whenever he does play, there is no population so he leaves. But we should just not do anything about it until after the Engine Upgrade #doubledeluxsarcasm

then you haven't been on at the right times. I've played in waterfront any time I felt like it this past week.
