Another JMB, so like, us people who don't want to waste money on gambling and aren't filthy rich ingame aren't gonna get. FeelsBadMan

 

Now that my groaning and complaining is out of the way it's good news that the console stuff is finally done and that we're getting some #content after all the waiting 493848531346653224.gif?v=1

I'm really glad to hear about the Joker store permanents, I'm hoping that'll encourage more people to jump into fight club every week. I am curious about prices though.

Are the prices for permanent weapons finalized yet and can we get to know the prices now or do we have to wait until the patch goes live?

I'm gonna be honest. Whatever system/technique you guys are using to take media pictures of those skins/weapons looks really tacky. Just something to work on.

 

Also: "It will be Little Orbit's first ground-up weapon design to be added to APB and we are thrilled about it. "

 

Wasn't the N-TEC compact pretty much already made by G1 except stats?

I was really excited about perma stuff in joke store until I read its cosmetics only. Which still makes it meh for me, no point waiting time still. I hope I read it wrong.

 

"new permanent Primary, Secondary and Cosmetic items for purchase."

 

Not a fan of gambling box still.

 

I am however looking positive at the new changes. Im also on fence about RIOT. The BR mode to me is just stupid and very boring. I really hope you guy can make it unboring.

I love that your first gun from the ground up uses a recycled model.

 

Keepin' it classy.

Other side of the coin being if LO made a totally new model, people would say "what about the weapon models that haven't been released yet?"

This...and their first "new content" is a fortnite ripoff game mode......

How about finishing Asylum for a mission district like it was intended to be....or some actual "new content"

And people will also ask for motorcycles, helicopters, and buffs to concurshun grenades.

 

*EDIT* In serious though, the issue isn't using the model, it's saying they made the weapon from the ground up.

Do people really think Fortnite invented the Battle Royale game mode?

I mean we can use what ifs all you want but LO said they "built it from the ground up". I doubt anyone would even think of the other weapons since LO decided to put that part in (which they just took an old model anyways so didn't really build it from the ground up lol).

Sorry. I didn't intend to mean that the model of the gun was original.

Only that the Legendary itself (stats, modifier, and skin) are.

Still not sold on RIOT, but we will see. The work has been put into it. May as well see how it all shakes out, eh? 

 

Also the N-TEC 7 Compact amuses me greatly. Been begging for a setup in that very same vein for quite some time now. Especially after the C2 failed so darn miserably and was just plain kicked out of the SMG/AR hybrid role. Figured it'd make the perfect gun for a second attempt at it. Went so far as to dredge up my old suggestion about it earlier this year. Back from when I was in the old defunct SPCT program. 

 

That and I'm a huge fan of already made assets being put to use. Hate seeing work done on something only for it to be wasted. Irks me to no end. Well done on all counts with that one I'd say!

Whelp. Rip the VAS C2 now. There is no reason to ever use it considering there is a better alternative now.

DB stats for the Ntec-7 are old placeholder stats. 

They are not the stats of the new weapon.

Nekrova to Citadel? 

Russian players have been waiting for this for 3 months.

Do you understand that on June 5th Nekrova will become completely dead? @MattScott 

 

 

// I dont play the Nekrova and dont wait for transfer.
