But really, you need proof to do anything, and with dethreating there is only one actual proof, and thats admitting it. I'm not defending the practice, but I'm sure you are well aware, there are a lot of people who straddle the line between gold and silver, or those who are silver and go gold because of too many fights with bronzes etc.

realistically, since we still have fairfight i dont think it should be that hard to look at a given player's stats and see the discrepancies - unlike players who straddle the gold/silver borderline, dethreating isnt a matter of a bad match or two here and there

If someone who only does well in bronze gets gold, then has to go to silver district, and run up against the best players possibly, wouldn't that look like such a discrepancy? So possibly ban people when they already spent all day in gold getting wrecked?
The threat system is totally broken right now IMO, trying to fix the system would be a much better use of time than trying to figure out who may be trying to take advantage of it.

no reason both cant be done, taking action against dethreaters while fixing the issues that "cause" dethreating in the first place sounds fine to me

Hi everyone,

We aren’t ignoring the DT problem or cheaters.  

We needed to launch the new Trading System because the new Report system uses some of the same underlying logic.

I’m not going to make excuses. I see the same reports as everyone else. We are doing our best. We’re just running behind.

Thanks,
Matt

Fix matchmaking and the threat system will work properly because for the people who dethreat to get into bronze then turn back to gold, the only matches they will get is against other people who have done the same.

That's ok that it is taking a little longer Matt.
It is to be expected since plans can always be changed by the unexpected  that comes up.
Once all of this is completed APB can have real content and graphic updates that we desperately need to bring  players back.

To be fair, the reason the gold districts aren't populated is because golds refuse to go there....

theres barely a silver district up at all times and you want to split the population up even more?

I'm not sure what you hope to achieve by being such a brown tongue.

Constructive criticism is far better than pretending evreything is ok when it's not, what you're doing is something akin to sweeping the mess under the rug.

If you are toally blind to the game's faults those faults will eventually turn around and bite you, it's better to accept that they exist and open up a dialogue
that way they at least have a chance of being fixed. Whether you realise it or not your blind adoration for the devs is far more destructive than any criticism. Edited by TheDogCatcher

More like  I'm not stale  like you and know it  takes hard work rather than  "entitlement"
Rome was not built in a day

Btw did you bother reading up on the updated road map? If so then give them some room. They've done more than just what was expected.
They cant even have a sick day because of your whip cracking because it would set them back from your unrealistic expectations

I dunno what any of that is supposed to mean, all I see is the population of citadel (you know, that server that the majority of the population plays on )  dropping day by day, it's getting abysmal now.

As much as I love this game I really can't see it lasting much longer, I don't care about roadmaps etc. they're totally irrelevant - if nobody is playing they mean nothing. What I care about is what is happening here and now and it ain't good, I've seen games die before and APB is displaying the exact same pattern.

My expectations are far from unrealistic unless you call a company doing their job properly unrealistic. Your expectations must be bargain basement low if you think this is ok and I don't think the majority of players share them.

Do you even have any understanding of how game development works ? I've worked in this industry for 18 years and I can tell you quite categorically that LO are f'ing up big time. Edited by TheDogCatcher

You say 18 years in the game industry and don't care about road maps?
You don't sound important at all if road maps which by the way is exactly what has been going on are irrelevant....
A game that's lasted 10 years+ then bought out by a new company that rushes one single gun balance does not scream dead game.
Although APB by far does not have high numbers it sure isn't dead either or you wouldn't be here being a wet blanket
Little Orbit has been working on APB and has done more than just keep their promises and the road map you call irrelevant is how real people in the game industry keep track of anything they are doing
I don't believe you at all on anything you said or will say now... too many suspicious things from you just now.

yeah maybe I phrased that badly, what I meant was that there's not much point in having a long term vision when you're short term future is far from certain, fix the immediate problems before worrying about what you'll be doing several months down the road. If you can't get the short term stuff right there will be no long term, end of.

and honestly if you think I care about your opinion of me you are very much mistaken.

I care about this game because I have invested quite a bit of money in it over the years, that is all.

ok now it is phrased much better and more clear that you didn't mean it how it was implied before. much better. and my apologies.

The roadmap covers to the year for the unreal 3.5 update and other bugs/exploits they are fixing before then as well as any content added or adjusted.
They've kept to it accurately as well as other things we didn't notice that they did and told us about it in the progress updates.
I lost count how much money I spent ages ago but since they are working hard I don't mind spending more on what I want.

This engine upgrade that they almost  have completed will fix most of what ails APB currently. it is critical for it to finish which is why the roadmap is saying they are aiming for the end of the year for the 3.5 update to be ready. After that the 4.0+ can be done and new districts/contacts/content/graphics and so on will be able to be done which means more people will want to stay.

If they weren't pushing so hard to finish the 3.5 I wouldn't believe in them at all since it is a critical system needed like people need lungs to breathe...gotta have it or certain death.
G1 bailed on the update so it was obvious they were bull #$$%^
Little Orbit is trying hard to do the 3.5 engine update and if they need  sick day /maternity leave/ family grievance/ or whatever it will only slow things down but that's a necessity for good reasons then.

Which is exactly why i said to MattScott that I don't mind if something comes up to slow it down a little because life happens and I'm understanding enough to see this.
