It'd take a big (Sequel-worthy?) overhaul, to render APB on Gemini (Multi-threaded rendering) and bring it up to spec. The way the game is rendered now...that's a huge job. Shedding light on APB's performance issues

You might be lucky and get banned by FF for nothing, come back at your own risk.

"Nope" yet most of the people saying no are still playing the game, complaining about how its dying.

 

In all fairness, you shouldn't let your opinion get herded by others. Pick it up, play a single mission, get reminded what made you leave and then decide whether or not you want to stay.

nah dont bother.You will just get banned for sitting in social. Then get nothing but useless copy paste replies from support that answer none of your questions.

Servers are still junk.
Matchmaking is still a joke.
And while legit well-liked and respected players are getting banned, blatants are atill running around for weeks and months before rerolling and doing it all over again.
Honestly, I just get on to read the horrible things people say in /d chat, and laugh every time someone pretends there are GMs around.

They still play because rarely, on a very good day, APB still has a couple fun moments. Moments of the kind that usually last no longer than your typical 30 second Shadowplay highlight.

 

That's not worth coming back to long term frankly. Not for anyone who has already fully left (and its certainly not worth spending hard-earned money on either).

and yet G1 fails to realise that FF is going nuts and people hate G1 for what they did (or did not do) to this game and it's community.

My honest opinion, try a few opposed missions. If you are not turned off by the inadequate matchmaking, the unresolved laggy servers or the constant force feeding of Armas marketplace, then you might just fall back in love with APB.

Granted APB still has some of the nicest looking and sounding weaponry and ripping around in a Vegas, crashing And making insane jumps will never grow old.

Damn....I may need to play some now....

Just keep in mind: All these people who say the game sucks and to move on... are still here.

 

Actions speak louder than words.

 

 

I just returned about 3 weeks ago and don't plan to go anywhere. Not much has changed, but I found after a couple of years off, my threshold for tolerating "the usual" was renewed. I still enjoy the game for all the reasons I enjoyed it in the first place.

Hating APB and its developers has become somewhat of a trend these past 1-2 years. I do it, you do it, everyone does it. Despite all this I still enjoy the game. There's just something about getting on, joining social, working on a new outfit or a theme and then maybe joining Fight Club for a few rounds that I thoroughly enjoy. I mean sure the game has flaws, but every game does. Some more than others. Bottom line is: The game has flaws, but it's manageable and still a game that I will always come back to. 

 

So yeah, you should definitely give this game a try again if you have buds to play it with.

 

But hey, this is just my opinion. 

¯\_(ツ)_/¯

Personally I think that Gamersfirst is the worst gaming publisher I've ever seen.

I left APB like 2 years ago. I was playing it for such a long time, RTW, CBT, but without a doubt the game died for a long time ago.

This is really pathetic to see how much they promise and in the end they don't do a single sh*t. Is it private server or what?

Even Innova had some unique systems and extremely fun events.

So, who needs this trash when you can play GTA V, I mean, really.

Do people even play APB on Xbox? Was it worth to pay so much time on development on badly optimized version of game and drop PC version for good?

I love APB and I will remember this game as one of my favourites, but unfortunately, G1 killed it. R.I.P. dear.

Same. I loved the game.
But if you truly love something you gotta now when you should let go, and APB is way past that expiry date.

It's funny. 
Just went through all the answers:
We've got
4 people saying "come back"
3 people being unsure about it
And an overwhelming 17 people saying "don't". 

This should be a clear sign to the devs about the state their game is in if 83% of the players cannot recommend the game or are unsure if they'd recommend playing it.

Yet it isn't.

Why?

Well it isn't that I don't recommend the game or not.

 

It is just if you are not playing APB you can probably spend your time on better things to do regardless of the quality of APB. But if you are already playing APB you probably enjoy it enough to keep playing it mostly.

 

Kind of like if people should go back to WoW or not. It is not the quality of the game but if you actually have space open for it, or looking for that kind of game again rather than the quality of it in general.

Depends, if you have premium on your characters and it may run out, i would yes come back. But be warned, the game might get extremely bored really fast. I have premium on 2 of my characters, came back last week, but left within 20 mins. I may have to force myself to come back soon just to avoid wasting my premium. 

 

I wish the upgrade will hurry up and come soon, they are taking forever.
