We're releasing a client update on Thursday. Maintenance will start at 9 AM UTC and will take approximately 3 - 4 hours.

 

Halloween Horseman Event

 

The rules for the event are simple:

  1. Collect pumpkins in Halloween versions of Financial and Waterfront to become the Headless Horseman and start the event (Timer Starts).
  2. The Horseman must kill other players to convert them to their Pumpkin Army (Pumpkin Head Soldiers).
  3. Pumpkin Head Soldiers must also kill other players to recruit them into the Pumpkin Army.
  4. Survivors must avoid being killed until the time runs out (Timer Ends).

NOTE: Survivors blip on the Pumpkin Army's radar when the bell tolls, signifying that the Horseman Event is coming to an end...keep fighting, running or hiding to survive.

 

Horseman

  • Buffed up health, flare gun and a custom Envegas steed.
  • Earn points by killing survivors.

Soldiers

  • Able to re-spawn multiple times without penalty.
  • Earn points for killing survivors.

Survivors

  • Earn points for surviving.
  • Earn extra points for killing and thereby becoming the Horseman.

Rewards

 

New achievements, new titles, several clothing items and choice of three backpacks can all be won and earned in this year’s event.

FAQ:

  • All the Horseman Event achievements are new this year, no progress from previous years will carry over.
  • The Purple Pumpkin Hunter and Pumpkin Smasher roles, as well as Trick and Treat’s progress will carry over from previous years.
  • All rewards are character-bound only.

As an APB elitist™ player im deeply saddened about this event.

 

Not only that there are no new rewards, but now banned people can get Wizard hats again.

 

 

Thanks G1

Seriously guys, they were able to put up an old event, at this point, thats a big thing. So stfu and try to enjoy what you get. If you have everything and find it boring, I dunno just play mission. I might actually log in and play asylum because there will be a small surge in pop.

Thank you Tiggs, and staff !!

 

I know this is a brutal community to manage, and a lot of people, my self included, give you guys a lot of **** from time to time, but doing things like this for this community is amazing at this stage in the game .

 

While I and many other others are still upset about the lack of communication and / or progress on the engine update, the continued events and the fact you give anything to this community is awesome .

 

I for one still wish we had a damn RED glowing weapon skin, even if it isn't the assylum skin, which is rare and sacred, and we all get that, but a red glow skin would seriously make so many LONG TIME veterans and supporters of this game, myself included, very very very happy !!!

 

Please, if possible, please, a red glow skin at some point ? maybe with a skull or something on it ? devil horns on it ?

 

If I had the source codes I would make the skin for you guys LOL !!

 

Red is seriously the only color I dont have hahahha .

 

Anyways, thank you again, and awesome job on this event !!!

 

( I know you know who this lol, and Im doing my best to be good around here, just for you Tiggs :)  )

Ok Tiggs can you please explain to all of us who participated in Halloween events 2014, 2015, 2016 and who played Halloween event because of only special achievement once per entire year  which is gaining "UNIQUE" trophy of a backpack that is not earnable or available anywhere else, anytime in the future.. 

 

Can u explain us where is our 4th unique trophy this year? Since there are many veterans who possess monster, pumpkin and skull backpacks or you want to say that G1 company did absolutely nothing this entire year? 

I mean its ok we didnt expect Summer Event which was publicly promised by one company and then turned out to be public lie...ok we can pass that..

we didnt expect engine upgrade as promised publicly on your blog again by  you and G1 company for august 2017...

 

but seriously... the only thing you did special for past couple of years ...and now this year you are shutting that ONE  SINGLE thing down as well, and you offering us recycled old backpacks... 

 

My question is what is the point of word "unique trophy"  if every year you will provide that "uniqueness" to be achieved by new players, newcomers.... ?? 

 

Cant you at least offer all 3 backpacks as choice, if someone really missed one in series, but  offer a 4th new one as it was TRADITION all this years..the only thing i was happy to wait entire year for, just to be surprised with new backpacks which were awesomely made with awesome ideas, such as first glowing clothing item in history of apb when pumpkin backpack came...  Cant you at least give us that little when already all rest was a lie ? 

 

Cant you give 4th new backpack so that us veterans at least have some reason to login to APB this Halloween.  We were loyal to you  and to your company obviously, I wouldnt be here writing this, if I werent... so please....please just give us motivation...just give us SOMETHING..is that so friggin much to ask?  :(

 

P.S.  this is what you said Tiggs for Valentine backpack :  Tiggs - reward yourself with a unique arrow quiver backpack that is not earnable or available anywhere else

 

so just do it for Halloween as you did all this years..pls.  :pray:  :pray:  :pray:


Being online doesn't mean you're suddenly not responsible for who you are.

Just saying:
 

Unfortunately we ran into some issues activating the migration, so we'll be postponing it by 24 hours. We'll post an update when it is available. Sorry for the inconvenience.

Meh. You guys should disable car surfer and blowtorch mods because it's just aids and gives players advantage over those who are not r195+ yet.

Fair play for everyone? Thought G1 cares about that : )

 

edit: and that fog is total performance killer.

Can we do something about glitch abusers please?

 

No? 

 

 

ok then, see you in two weeks


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
