I have not seen any "entitlement" attitude on this thread , only those sincerely concerned such as myself.

 

As for Little Orbit , they've done a great job giving us a new event out for Halloween like this.

I'm grateful that they care so much to give us everything they have then this as well.

Idk what went on the discussion but I want to add or repeat..  finish bugged joker activities too,  or impossible ones (kill 3 enemies as they drop barrels for 0.2 sec)

Hi everyone,

 

There is a lot of good feedback here. We are reading it all and making adjustments.

 

The goal of Epidemic was to do something new and different for the players as a way to stress test and iterate on bits and pieces of the new RIOT mode. 

 

Clearly there are things we need to continue tweaking, but we have just put another patch up to fix some of the more frustrating items:

 

•    Barrel stacks can no longer be damaged by friendly fire.
•    Reduced the damage taken in enemy controlled zones.
•    Fixed the "Win Epidemic Matches" daily activity.

 

We’ll figure out the balance (or lack there of) with Daily Activities and needing to log in most days to cap out the event.

 

Thanks,

Matt

 

Can you please reset the pumpkin smashing in waterfront/financial for my character so I dont have to make a new character that i'll never play just to smash pumpkins with my friends since the other event is kind of not completed and is a work in progress/stress test?

Oh, BTW Matt, is it on purpose that the "Kill 10 Enemies near friendly small Toxin Barrels" activity only works with barrels that say "pickup," not ones that say "defend"?

@MattScott Hey could you please change this "Dayly Epidfemic missions in sort of something like in fightclub baylan and increased value of missions done ?

we have like 9 lvls to do so its at last 9 days  if u lucky maybe u should lower timer from 24h to 1h ? to let ppl spend time ingame and not just grind 1 daily and left.
OFCORE YESTERDAY I GET WIN MATCH MISSION WHICH I CANT EVEN FINISH WHILE I WIN 10 MATCHES IN THIS DAY


NEXT QUESTION FROM WHERE I CAN GET THIS FUKIN WITCHES HAT !!!!!!!!!!!

Isnt it only the big palette of barrels? That one at least has worked for me.

That specifically does not work, (note that it says "small" barrels,) in fact if you go to the contact the longer description is, "Kill 10 Enemies while near friendly toxin barrels (not barrel stacks)." But I'll tell you the reason that works, which is because a large percentage of the time the barrel stacks will have small barrels ready for pickup next to them. (The range around a small barrel that you can get a kill and contribute to the activity is rather large, though it can be unpredictable sometimes in ways I don't quite understand yet.)

 

Also, just to make sure, don't confuse "near friendly small Toxin Barrels" with "while in friendly Locations."

bet u cant wait to use that skin when this game dies in like a month hehe xd

 

Too bad it won't.

 

The playebase is big enough that everyone goes like "eh I'll play this game again" and quit after a month. Circle repeats itself over and over, APB just refuses to die.

I'm annoyed with the barrel carrier daily. It literally cannot be done without cheesing it with a friend in a different team.

 

I'm also rather annoyed that I can't get all the 3 weapon skins, and that they are all basically reskins of other halloween skins (or the yellow color one).

 

A little too disappointing overall.

I go to work and school and most days I cant play and if I can its only for an hr or 2. Impossible to get everything on 3 chars especially when you have dailies that are impossible to do and when ppl abuse a bug that kicks everyone from the server. I lost out on a daily for day 1 because I had to complete 3 matches and nobody would allow a match to complete. Now I lose out. LO I had hopes you guys would do the event right but this is the exact opposite, it rewards the ppl who can no life and the ppl who cant play much or are casual players are left out.

in my opinion, if this is a work in progress of "riot" mode, it kinda works.

there are a pair of things that should be changed/added

 

as example. i think each faction should be divided in teams(similar to battlefield) since we are talking about a game mode that involves a great number of players and for me, the classic team system looks more confusing.(i think this one could be a little bit important if you're playing with friends or clanmates, even if i mainly play solo)

 

there could be something cooler if icons of barrel stacks can blink(a glowing up or a warning indicator(?) could be better than fading imho) upon getting damage instead of only a simple life percentage indicator.

 

about "barrel carriers", i think that's not really impossible as many people think it is. the game allows to kill enemies and count them as carriers even if they dropped the barrel after a pair of seconds. i made it in a very short time(excluding early game for help team to capture areas). maybe it's ok if you drop the kills required to 2(from 3) but i don't find it a necessary change

This is almost entirely off-topic to this thread, I suggest you take your comments somewhere else where they're actually relevant so people take them more seriously and can discuss them.

I hope they make changes, I really dont wana miss out and I wana enjoy the event abit more. Having nothing besides a impossible daily just isnt as satisfying as running around against a horde of 50 other players trying to survive in horseman.

If it's the activity 'Kill 10 players in friendly locations' you have to kill players in a zone that is fully captured by your team (you have to be in the zone, they don't)
