This is when the game was fun. Bring it back with the engine upgrade and you will a lot of cash flowing in as well as players coming back to the game. Trust me. And i will do my best in promoting this game to the fullest. Bring back the old threat icons/symbols as well. the ones from the photo, they look better than the ones you have now. No offense, but its the truth. Also bring back that thing when a high threat level enter the social district and it says high threat player as enter, i forget how it went and i wasn't able to find any videos on that, but it was cool when it happen. Please take this into serious consideration. You can also expand on the old threat system.
Matchmaking Update Part 1
- APB Reloaded now uses a Bayesian enhanced version of the Glicko rating system to determine the relative skill of players, based on the outcomes of opposed missions. The believed skill of the player is known as that player’s Skill Rating, which is then translated into the player’s Threat Level (shown on the UI), and also used by the matchmaking system to construct matches where the skill of each side is as evenly matched as possible.
- The total number of Threat Levels per faction has been increased to 30 and spread across 3 tiers – Bronze, Silver and Gold – with each tier consisting of 10 ranks. For example, a ‘Silver Rank 5’ player is believed to be better than a ‘Bronze Rank 10’ player.
- All players will start from Bronze Rank 1, as the new system has to start from scratch in order correctly calculate the Threat level.
- Note that we expect players to see large fluctuations to their Threat early on, as the system narrows in on your actual Threat level over time. So don’t be surprised to jump between tiers as well as ranks for the first few matches.
