How many districts do you guys want? You dont even use the one literally made just for you. You take over silver, pushing out silver. And now i cant get through a mish without seeing a gold in freaking bronze. How is this even allowed? And do any of you golds have any self respect left after playing a single mish in bronze? How do you justify being a bully like that?

Technicality. It does not change the fact that people who clearly should not be there, are there.

Honestly, people in this game don't give a mommy. Everyone is very competitive and when those goldies get a taste of cheaters in the game, they sure as hell won't feel shame ruining bronze servers :D

If it takes to lose few missions to go gold->silver than you are probably not a gold. Silver servers are overrun by golds, silvers have to go somewhere. Also people look for salvation from the cheatfest that silver districts are(there are blatants in bronze too, inorite?). Blame G1.

And btw, there are almost no bronze players in bronze. It's literally silver and "gold" everywhere. HVR squads, true ogres, osmaws, volcanos

Well G1 decides who belongs where, not us. And according to them, nothing about matchmaking or dethreating or rank needs fixing.

Either that, or they simply do not have the expertise needed to fix said problems.

 

I personally think dethreaters are as bad, if not worse than cheaters. But then again, I get stomped often vs my fellow golds, so maybe Im just hoping for easier opp (the dethreaters).

 

That being said, on Jericho at least, pop is so low now that people can finally make the argument that they dethreat just to get opp or just to play a certain district, so expect more, not less dethreaters as the game continues to die.


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.

^^ this .

"REAL GOLDS" can dethreat, and we do, to get away from FAKE GOLDS ( cheaters / re-roll rage hackers ) who infest silver instance and can't, nor will ever "dethreat" down to bronze .

Go to the silver instance, play a few matches against the script kiddies and hackers, then come back to bronze server and hug every gold you see for BEING A LEGIT player !!!

:)

Y'see, I read this as:

 

FAKE GOLDS can dethreat, and we do, to get away from REAL GOLDS (who can actually play the game but I see an occasional hacker and then say anyone who beats me is hacking cos I'm not very good at the game and my muscet is small) who infest silver instance and can, but don't, dethreat down to Bronze.

"now"? You clearly haven't been paying much attention to the last 4 years.

 

Also they're silvers who manage to farm enough newbies to attain the holy yellow status. Real golds don't dethreat or play in bronze districts.

There are so few people left playing that threat districts are pointless. G1 should directly remove the segregation so maybe we can have a population increase instead of loss.

Cool. And I see your suggestion that a CBT vet you've probably never knowingly played is a hacker just for having a different opinion as admittance that you cry hax whenever someone kills you and just want to stomp newbies. Even?

and this would completely kill the game because all of the people who dethreat to get away from the hackfest in silver would then quit the game completely ... GOOD IDEA !!

This game doesn't have enough players to support three segregated "threat" districts. Threat itself needs to be overhauled and just done away with entirely so the remaining player base is free to compete against each other without being limited to playing a certain time of the day when there is enough other people who fit your threat online.

 

If APB had 5,000 on every server, then yeah, this type of threat system may work, but with the game struggling to break 1k across all servers the available pool to get sorted into those districts is tiny which means a lot of the time you're forced to dethreat or make a smurf account if you want to play since only Bronze districts may be up.

 

However since G1 literally doesn't have a development team anymore, let alone the staff familiar enough with the game to do a threat/matchmaking overall despite the significant damage it does to the game (new players are thrown to the wolves which means player retention becomes a major issue) this will never ever be addressed.

 

Delete threat, delete the HVR, make lowyields 2 grenades, and voila, APB is instantly a better game.

why do so many people ask for this? all it does is just force new players to play with the already over saturated amount of veterans, making them immediately uninstall as well as any other future new players.

Delete threat ...


So making all districts open conflict district which messing up the matchmaking Yeah I don't won't 1 green vs 4 gold match no thanks.

Threat system is there for a reason. People who wants threat to be removed is really for their own benefit talk and sadly most people who wants the threat to be removed are the ones who complain about the game on everything so no.

What servers are you playing on? Only legit players on bronze? HA! 


Drink up. Shoot in. Let the beatings begin. Distributor of pain. Your loss becomes my gain. Anger. Misery. You’ll suffer unto me. Harvester of sorrow. Language of the mad. Harvester of sorrow. All have said their prayers. Invade their nightmares.
To see into my eyes. You’ll find where murder lies.

No threat districts = more balanced mix of players on both teams. Newbies will be facing hard players, but will also have them on their side since the mm can better match them. Plus, no more dethreaters.

I don't get why the Open Districts aren't a thing; why bother with the hassle of threating and de-threating when you could just play and stomp faces or be stomped by everyone?
