Does anyone remember that time G1 said they were going to work on the EU?

Like, I have this distinct feeling that they said they weren't going to bother with new content or anything else until the Engine Upgrade was released on all platforms?

 

I kinda' feel like the majority of the community here agreed we wanted them to work on the EU, was that a dream?

 

Please tell me this isn't just me.

yes I remember that too, and it's fine, but then I wonder how much imporvement the EU really brought, the consoles performance which is said to have the EU were disappointing performancewise.

Nope, but at least if we can get it out of the way maybe they can start fixing some of the mommy they f'ed up, or I can just give up on life already and jump off of a bridge and kms.

And deal with the terrible look of the game until it eventually dies? No thanks. I'd rather take the lack of fixes as the game still works fine.

We should have an unstructured, meta-official, quasi-binding vote here on the forums.

DID YOU JUST ASSUME G1 LIED TO US? DID YOU EXPECT THEM TO CARE ABOUT ANYTHING REALLY?
 

 

 

seriously, there is literally NOTHING G1 could do now to surprise me... they f*cked up SO MANY things, there is really nothing more they can do to surprise me.

 

G1 is doomed.

 

Would you be surprised if they pulled G1 together and it became a multi-billion dollar franchise?

 

GOT YA!

Dear Tiggs,

    

      Im still bad at APB. Please fix your game.

                                                Sincerely,

                                                        -Me


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. Sincerely, someone who loved what once was, -Tiggs

THAT would be surprising. And then APB MOBA,movie etc. would be made.

 

 

 

But now i feel that they want either to close things or to end one side just to get financial support from the other.

They know very well the EU is a fail in terms of performance and functionality (just look at the consoles with all their problems).

 

They are purposely delaying it for as long as possible since its release will most likely put an end to the game.

 

Which, possibly, is the first time they took a good decision.

That's actually incorrect, the EU performs amazingly well on consoles all things considered, but I know you won't believe me and I don't care to explain it at the moment.

In the three years it has taken them not to release the engine upgrade on PC they might have been able to create a modern, up-to-date, performant successor to this fundamentally promising game.

Well, we did indeed vote for the engine upgrade to get prioritized but it seems they want to market the game as something like PU Battlegrounds, The Culling, H1Z1 or whatever. Inb4 "First GTA clone, now PU Battlegrounds clone". Oh boy...

I'm glad to read Revo's post, really refreshing to read.

 

Prioritizing the Engine Upgrade was a mistake. Too bad nobody really saw that when the voting began.

 

I also find it top-shelf shameful that when the devs are finally doing something about this game's dramatical stagnation that this is used as an argument against it. Especially after we've seen how terrible that unanimous voting to prioritize the EU has worked out.

 

Absolutely ridiculous.

I still don't see the point of the engine upgrade. They clearly did not do a code rewrite since the console versions are plagued with the exact same performance bugs.

The G1 plane has to gain some altitude, otherwise it's gonna hit the ground, even if it means cancelling the agreement.

If Gamersfirst would work on the European Union (EU) we at least know that the union wouldn't be doing anything at all.

On the other hand they do try to expand to more countries.

It's not even that impressive. Console plays on the "new/upgraded engine" right?

It doesn't look very different and tbh might cause more stability issues than it fixes.
This game is an awkward joke that you only laugh at out of pity.

Remeber when ... it was towards the end 2013 and the EU / performance increase were announced?

Also that roadmap or whatever that is and more communication with the community?

Are you confused as of why it's still incomplete?

You re not alone

About topic -> Yes. Most of Community declare to G1 that they should focus on Engine Upgrade. As history can show us that EU will be much more delayed than we expected. Unfournamently G1 has to LOW RESOURCES to do anything plus some of their team are Console MODS etc. so EU will take VERY long time to complete this.

 

IDK what of kind politicies G1 lead but if they won't think about some details they may fall and project APB:R also may be down.

( if someone think that I'm talking some wrong info please correct me :) )

I don't think most of us want it anymore anyway.

 

After seeing how poorly the game runs on consoles, how ugly the graphics are (especially in shadowed areas), all the unnecessary props they added and how they unAPBified most building textures, I'm not really a fan of it anymore.

Considering that they sort of made an update on the console versions recently on a blog post, i think it is safe to assume that they've just got out of the agreement.

I personally am of the opinion that the EU probably runs nearly as well on PC, but I certainly can agree on all other accounts.

Don't really think it makes a difference though.  Most we'd be looking at are new maps and different graphics. 

 

Probably would take even longer if they rebuilt a lot of stuff from scratch.

it was said beeing mostly under the hood things to imprvoe stuff, now this went all very questionable.
So it is all juust a question if the EU on the PC will make things better or worst under that said hood.

It would probably be worse. All new recent open world tps try to be as realistic as possible.

Taking into consideration that the arcadish precise movement is what makes APB so great we would just have another pve game which is nowhere pvp compatible. Sometimes less is more if it suits the functionality and purpose.

Can somebody point me to a post where anyone representing RP said that this new event would be launched before the engine upgrade? 

 

It seems to me that since the console versions are mostly where RP needs them to be to get PC EU out the door, and that RP has said in the past that the PC EU is pretty much ready to go, that they're developing this event for post-EU.

 

I'm as tired as anyone else is with how long we've had to wait, but everyone's endless negativity does nothing to help RP or us.

They are still busy on the "integration/merge" of Innova (and patching of consoles).

The event is announced for this summer and Im pretty sure there would be news about EU if they would release it before that. #EU2018

It's not negativity if it's simply a fact.

I'm not saying the EU won't be released this year, but they have to finish the innova migration, get the EU to a presentable state, put it on OTW, process the feedback from the OTW release and implement that, and then if they're smart put that on the OTW, and then maybe at that point it will be ready to go live.

 

So since this event is almost certainly not going to go live at the same time as the EU, 'cause that would be an awful idea, I highly doubt that this event will happen after the EU if it's supposed to come out in summer considering summer is only three months.

The thing is this summer could be coming in 2020 for all we know. 3 months RP time is at least 3 years real time.
