hope east/west servers are stable by Saturday.

 

can you imagine "a lot" of players trying the new engine while teleporting/spiking around the map due to increased latency??

Can we get an Armas Sale? Maybe 50% discount on all to celebrate the second test? 😉

Is it the first of August? 

No, so that makes perfect sense to not work

Another stress test, nice. Hit me up when the actual open beta starts.

If anyone wants to cry about it being a stress test, don't bother trying to log in and leave it to people who actually want to get in and give grown up feedback.

What feedback are you going to give from a few hours of testing that the SPCT didn't already give in months? Think for a second.

Wait, so you're telling me that no more bugs or issues will crop up opening up the Beta to more players than are available for SPCT? Sure why does anyone bother with an Open Beta then? Just go straight to release from Closed Beta. Shouldn't be any problems, clearly.

 

Think for more than a second.

No, buddy, I'm just saying it's literally a stress test. There's no such thing as an open beta that only lasts a few hours. You won't find that many bugs that aren't related to stress testing that the SPCT didn't already report. Sure, it's still a valid testing method but my point still stands, hit me up once I can properly play the game for more than a few hours.

What is the point of any of these betas, when all we are playing in is a boring unfinished Asylum map?

Its almost 2021 and the engine upgrade still hasn't shown up yet, not only that, Xbox console has the engine upgrade for the two main districts, why not the PC?

 

Release the beta with the two main districts already.

Alright. I give it a chance.

Although this time if you guys really don't feel ready, don't fire it up - you saw what happened last time.

Less disappointment that way than firing it up and crashing and burning.

Do you offer refunds once when the new engine comes out?

If this is what I was waiting for the past years, I am better without it.

Almost as if I didn't say some people won't be pleased when they find out they can't play because AVX or game MAY* run even worse because AVX-SSE transition penalties.  Although from what I've seen performance is definitely not impressive considering the high end hardware it was tested on. And mind you, this was only Asylum. It's yet to be seen on full 40/40 action district.

Congratulations I guess.

It is not like it is a brand new game either and the graphics still looks like 💩 even with the update. 

I haven't even seen a modern game that requires this AVX thing so why even use it especially when knowing the playerbase consist mostly veterans? I am totally going to buy a new PC just to be able to play APB with 20 fps.

 

On the bright side, I don't think it is coming officially anytime soon anyway. Not this year for sure.

 

What weird times we live in. From waiting for engine update to not wanting it at all.
