Sorry typing too fast, i meant WE ALL CAN AGREE. Not call can agree. sigh don't laugh ok
Its only about 600+ players online, population is declining we all see that. Maybe it's about time they added a PVE mode to fight against some bots to level up a bit. Or a PVE to level up in general. If there's nobody online to play, how are player expected to level up?
And with no engine upgrade release in sight, no new content such as new maps, promotion for the PC version or any version lol, might as well add a new mode so when there's nobody online we can have something to do. Something to think about and it makes sense IMO. This game population is dropping fast. I was thinking about coming back to the game tonight, but with only 600 players online, once you see the servers on the list, it looks terrible. They need to hurry up and do something.
G1 can't even properly add a new gun without making it either entirely useless or way too overpowered.
They fail to patch the most basic bugs due to the bad engine, they fail to update the map, they have the Innova Merge and the new engine on their doorstep
And you are asking them to code a god damn algorithm for bots?
"Yeah, no f*cking biggie, thought I was gonna code some bot-algorithm this afternoon, have about half an hour of free time and nothing to do, let me construct a bot AI for this extremely complex game."
Do you even have the slightest idea just HOW complex and difficult it is to create decent AI, especially in a skill heavy game like APB? They can get stuck everywhere, balancing them out, having failsaves and semi-intelligent behavior is just insanely difficult to program and takes months even for big development studios with hundreds of developers more than RP has to make them literally just not terrible (which is still far from good by the way). That is on a decent engine, with a ton of testers and a LOT of resources dedicated to them.
The bots G1 would create wouldn't even be near gold, let alone silver for that matter.
It'd be like fighting badly moving and bugging trainees with aimbots (that is if they'd succeed in implementing them in the first place anyway). Let alone the fact they'd have to navmesh out the ENTIRE map of both Waterfront AND Financial. How is that even supposed to work? And doesn't this game have WAY bigger priorities like the Merge of Innova and the new engine at the moment?
This community is f*cking terrible.
You guys come up with some crazy patootie wild shower thoughts and without even thinking about the idea for more than a quarter of a second you post a suggestion threat online. The typo in the headline just goes to show how little time you actually spent thinking this through.
You can't just repeatedly throw random thoughts at G1 and expect them to follow your every command. They haven't made any progress over the last year anyway and instead of starting off small with your wishes like completing the engine now and moving on to minor bug fixes you guys keep asking for f*cking motorcycles and bots.
Please, for the love of god, think your ideas through before you post them and don't come up with ad hoc explanations of how things should work. You should be required to have plausible answers for big questions like how they are gonna finance this, if that is really a priority goal and how it is gonna work BEFORE you post threads like this one.
Jesus f*cking christ this community gives me headaches.

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.
My brother in law is a prison guard, turns out that place is also full of "false positives".
