I still have hope that one day G1 will release a engine update and new contents and hopefully that would bring back its massive pop its usually have back in the old days........i know its been years since its last engine update but still I know alot of you could agree that its still very playable with its current contents that it has.......the main problems would be hackers (atleast for me)......its a very good game with lots and lots of clothes, guns, and vehicles (both free and purchasable).

 

Leave your comments to why you still hope for APB below.

No. The many many many months of radio silence speaks volumes. Th engine upgrade should have been finished months/years ago. They arent even making an attempt at the sad blog posts. 

Right now its a sinking ship. Hang on to whats left, enjoy it while you can, wait for the doors to close. Best case scenario at this point is for another company to buy this, again, and breath new life into the game. G1 has ruined there name at this point. 


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.

Even though the people at G1/Reloaded Games obviously care a lot about the game, the amount of new news (0) is impossible to ignore.

 

At least we have @utilizator to breathe a bit of life and discussion into the forums these days.

made me giggle quite a bit.

 

as for op, look at the console release. they have the upgraded engine. sure it runs like trash but look at the specs of the consoles plus we all know apb has 100/10 optimization.

 

looking at how the "engine upgrade" possibly only needs some small tweaking for it to come out of pc and that it didnt happen 1 (or even longer?) year after the release of the console version makes me believe we probably wont see the engine upgrade anytime soon or not at all

Says it all there.

I wish I could say I have hope still but I am not going to have hope only for it to have them dashed.

One can believe RP are working on the EU, however I am doubtful that it will released in time for the PC version without some sort of significant impact.

I lost all my hope, and now truly belive that the game is dying since Citadel turned into constant lag fest like 1-2 weeks ago. Silver districts were always unlayable for me, but now even FC, Social, and OC are laggy as hell. There is nowhere to hide from lags anymore. Servers are not even full as they used to be.

 

Until now I still had faith. Do you know this smell, coming mostly from old people.. they have accepted their fate, and you can literaly smell death from them. This is what I feel while playing APB now.

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.

I still have a bit of naive hope that one day G1 will be like "Surprise !!!" and engine upgrade will be released and they will take care of cheaters but to be honest I'm just lying to myself...

APB for me is that one ex you break up with, but always turn back to.

 

No hope in that lmao

It's clear at this stage that the Dev team don't have the resources left to follow up on whatever good intentions they may have. So no.

 

We got a few good years out of it.

99% of me lost all hope 2 years ago, but a tiny spark of 1% of me still believes in a total recovery, and i'm pretty sure i'm being fair with my percentages.

Back mid 2017 my hope was waning, now it's gone. I literally see no way at this point that any good news is on the way. If they didn't have the resources for the engine upgrade in the last gew years they definitely don't have it now. Feels like they decided as a business decision that the payoff of working on the PC version wasn't worth the time and money

790fbfa479.jpg

I refuse to play this game until my account of 5 years has it's false ban removed, until then I will use this account for the forums only

G1 took out all my accounts in one fell swoop so I get the hint they don't want me or my money in their game anyways

No. I mean look at the forum. No communication, development timelines, goals, nothing. All we ever get is sales. Will just play until it dies completely or something else replaces it in which I hope soon enough.

Until now I still had faith. Do you know this smell, coming mostly from old people.. they have accepted their fate, and you can literaly smell death from them. This is what I feel while playing APB now.

 

Old people smell is the result of an increased production of the chemical compound Nonenal, due to hormonal changes that leave their skin more vulnerable to oxidation. This natural biological process is completely independent of an elderly individual's outlook in regards to philosophical concepts such as fate and mortality. That said, your attempted metaphor was not without an element of poetry. Maybe workshop that one.

 

On the actual topic ... hope for APB?

If I'm being rational, I'd say that it is best to abandon preconceptions and expectations, and let things play out as they may. Easier in theory than in practice though, it is sad to see something with such unique potential dwindle away. So I do have have some hope, but it is not for APB specifically (though it could be) ... my hope is that someone will recognize the value and potential of the sort of systems APB utilizes and seek to occupy that niche.

Also, I dont want that disaster of an engine update, and Im glad they didnt release that mommy show to PC.

 

That was my thoughts exactly, and i never liked the idea of the engine update and it would have been a mess, breaking a ton of things, taking them forever to fix just like tracers or traffic lights in financial, and not to mention just how ugly the new engine made the game look, its like they couldnt implement APBs shaders into it so now its just runs on default lighting settings and look like some steam greenlight asset flip money grab game.If they swapped the existing PC game with that, it would kill the game for real.

APB itself is done for, but somebody else will pick up the IP when G1/Reloaded folds or fans will create a continuation in some way or another. APB is too fun and unique to go away forever.

Project Nekrova. Enough said, APB is dead, or atleast will be. 0 communication from G1/RP it's just so dissapointing. 

​Anyway, i'm waiting for Project Nekrova to finish to abandon this game forever.
