I honestly didn't even read your last two posts because of the font/format.

For me, I'd say an entire overhaul of character mods and player mechanic effects because there is only one mod players go to, which has the least draw back of any. I'm talking about rewriting the mechanic in general because what's there isn't giving any opportunities for varied effects.

 

Specifically, Fragile has to have a certain mobility advantage that actually significantly effects combat performance because extra speed does nothing when base speed lets players dodge bullets fast enough, Flak Jacket letting you actually tank explosives (If CoD:BO Flak Jacket let's you eat a car explosion, the f*ks the matter with doing it in APB, then?), and Kevlar's protection being different than just health increase to balance it with all weapons instead of some, all while the downsides to all of those are way too crippling, except Flak, where it's the low reduction that's the problem. The basic mechanics, and probably the whole coding of characters, has to be overhauled, though, which is a much bigger problem than this issue here. The fact still stands that character mod variety is non-existent and a lie, which a new player will find out soon enough.

 

Making it harder to gain threat and easier to lose threat would definitely bring me back full time, though.

 

A start would be removing all rank restrictions so they can get a proper view on just how popular certain mod combos are. All of the R195+ character mods are borderline OP, and you can't even get low yields until you're far beyond R195.

 

As for threat, they need to start cracking down on players who intentionally dethreat to stomp on new players. hint hint

Good luck with that.

You'd have to have constant moderation, or at least someone watching every now and then to see what is going on with the threat.

 

If you ask me, I've noticed in every game with a threat\rank\competitive system, there's a psychological component to it that can cripple a team heavily.

 

If 4 bronzes tab the scoreboard to find themselves against 4 golds, chances are they're gonna do worse because "Aw man, why do we have to fight these guys."

 

Take the threat system out, and the only identifying factor is player names and clans, it becomes much less of a competent when playing a game.

Well I hope APB can be like that one dude that when you feel horny, you can call up, screw, then forget again for another month or two.

Currently it's more like that ugly fat chick that tries to sext you all the time so when you get really wasted you bang her and feel the regret and shame crawl up on you the next morning.


No, I am not that guy named "h0llow" who is AFKing on Citadel Social all the time, proof here. My characters are called "Hollowchick" and "Hoilowchick" so please stop mixing us up, thank you.

Nice old post, there were SOME false bans when they started automating fairfight, and even those unbanned were re-banned, so your quote there proves nothing.

Go on ffbans right now and just read through most of the recent bans, literally all the cheater-defenders there are commenting "false ban hurdur" on every single page. It's ridiculous. Some that were banned have been cheating since forever and they still cry "FALSE BAN PLS UNBAN"

A separate RTW server build and client download for us to play, with the old EA logo if legal. :P

(idea also inspired by this thread)

The same version the APBEMU guy(s) is / was trying to make possible, not the more-or-less weapon-side only concoction they cooked up earlier.

 

Easily bringing that back at this point might spark some interest, but I doubt it, since the graphics and performance is a bog part of playing the RTW version.

 

Maybe for a couple of weeks or longer, everything unlocked and just play and enjoy. Maybe make it premium only like OTW for their efforts to set it up (using existing server hardware - probably half as resource hungry).

 

 

I would download it and buy premium to check that out.

 

 

This is assuming that rumor I hear around here about them accidentally deleting the data needed for this isn't true.

I remember when dopefish created an entire petition thread descriminating against colored text...saying that users should only be allowed to use formatting on "important" stuff like his headers. Lol
He managed to convinc the GM's to punish or even forum-ban anyone for using colored text. Lol it was pretty funny.

Following the rules doesn't mean you're a sheep. It means you're aware that standards and norms are there for a reason.

Dunno if acting like a rebellious immature special snowflake blind of all reasoning can be called less close-minded.

Unblocking all the players that got blocked by FF.
Creating weekly events.
Closing ps and Xbox version.
This would get the population back to the game.
And maybe adding new staff , contacts​ etc.
And changing / upgrading the anti-cheat.

I'd like more to disable all character (+ Eventually weapons, but characters for now) modifications (all, except fields supplier) from missions on special (preferably FC at all) action districts. Pretty much the same way as Infestation:NewZ did with perks on Battle Royale.

lmfao... thats too funny to even contemplate.


Stop f'ing around with focus groups, and fire the marketing suits and hire some good, competent developers and people with vision. Unfortunately at this point I think it is too late. No one trusts you anymore SOE and their experiences here WILL likely make them think twice about trying other SOE games. I know for myself I will NEVER play another SOE title.

im somewhat on the same boat as abysymal.

 

we all know how great a game APB can truly be. its concept its great and if given the proper care it can truly be a rivaling F2P title. but G1 or k2 isnt the answer to that solution.

but the fact we still have people paying for stuff in the game and sinking more money into it is just a cancerous sight. why continue funneling money into a project you know is never going to improve and that is on the grasp of dying. the more people realize that if we cut the cord the quicker G1 can sell the IP then hopefully a better chance of it getting picked up by another developer that will show the care it actually needs.

we have all sunk hundreds if not thousands of dollars / pounds / euros etc etc into the game but this is becoming exactly like archeage's community. a stubborn community that cant let the game die. even tho at the base game is a great game its plagued with to many problems. but ofc to many people are invested and cant let go.

Nothing really, not dumb enough to Reinstall this. To be fair, I got a solid 3k hours out of the game before leaving. Games pretty trash now, but it'd be cool if the changes made by g1 all got rolled back and the original game was there to be played, at least so others could experience it.
