Doubling the community again - 10,000 more invites just sent

This morning we have confirmed the stability of the Los Angeles based servers. We have also confirmed that the server-side frame-rate now is holding steady at much higher levels than in the first part of CB, so we have now been able to bump the district population up by 20% in each district as well.

Based on this, we just sent out the invites to the next 10,000 eligible CB applicants. For those that were included in this wave but who were NOT from US-West locations, keep in mind that you are playing from a long distance and at this stage any lag you see should be network specific.

As I mentioned in the last post, the team in the EU are continuing the work on our datacenter locations, and as soon as that's up and running we will start inviting EU and Russian beta testers whole-sale into the EU location. Right now while most new invites went to North American players, quite a few long-distance players have been also included in this current wave, so just keep in mind the distance to your game server when you participate.

Keep in mind that when you have been enabled you also get automatic access to our Closed Beta forums where you will be able to post about the Closed Beta experience (when your G1 account has been enabled in the Cloaed Beta you will be able to see the Closed Beta Forum links here: http://forums.gamersfirst.com/index.php?showforum=630 )

See you in San Paro!

Cheers,

  6. Yes - just use your G1 account that you used when filling out the Beta Application. If you see any issues, we will have our tech team review any login issues for the new batch.

    And we have to wait a little more because others gets multi invites :(

    Still getting error 10010 which i guess mean i m givin rong password although i am sure its the correct one,since i just log in to www.gamersfirst.com that is the only account i have and used it to filling out the beta application.

    Just inform you , guess it's gonna be fixed soon.
    thank you.

  14. would be better if you'd restrict beta access to 1 invite per IP because there are people with over 3 accounts and a LOT of people with nothing and if you add up all those extra unused accounts you can make a lot of more people happier

  17. @jori theres some people with two computers and two different ppl wanting to play the beta so what they should do it take those who have not activated there account for 3 days n give it to someone else

    ReplyDelete
  18. You sadden me epicly, G1.

    I've played over 800 hours in the original APB,
    and I've submit my closed beta application form + key the moment I got it.

    And now someone who registered for the beta a week later, and never played APB got in?

    I'm happy for the guy who got in, but it makes me sad in the pants to still have no invite, after seeing you guys send out another 10k.

    I'm hearing 2, 3, 4 accounts accepted around me.
    Just check the damn IPs already..

  27. Uhm i've been waiting for a while. I was an old apb player and signed up for the beta as soon as possible but i have yet to recieve anything. Im from East U.S., New York specifically, did Wave 3 not come by yet?

    It's very frustrating reading that more invites were sent and everytime i check my mail there is nothing.

    ReplyDelete
  28. Yeah im from NYC as well. Played APB from day one and sent my application in the 10 minutes I got it..Is the US east being discluded from these tests?

  30. Wow love waiting and waiting by the computer to find out yet AGAIN i haven't got an invite! Thannks soo much G1 your sure on the top of my favorites list.

    ReplyDelete
  31. Wow, really. G1, you really fails sometime..... please send out MORE INFORMATION for example. first of all, how the hell do i send a beta application? I've even seen YOU commenting about it. BUT WHERE IS THE INFO? It should be clear on the site! Also, why are you teasing all the players who didn't get an invite and why didn't you give one to them? Instead of spamming one person. You really got low when it comes to peoples trust. Shame...

    ReplyDelete
  32. I want mine :(

  34. I Wish i got a beta key i play apb nonstop everyday it was awesome but i dont have a beta key i love apb and i will love to play it again.

    ReplyDelete
  35. omg you guys are lame, hate those kids " I was in the first apb ive spen 1 billion, plz let me in !11!!!1" shut guys, I was in the first aswell and I have been waiting just as long as you guys are (got my CB approval today tho)but you wont get in faster just becourse you guys keep begging and telling G1 who played pre apb, actually I think G1 knows exacly what they are doing, else i dont think they wouldt have bought the game in the first place, but guys youll get you damn chance, be patience like everyone else.

    And Joeru, actually your the one who fails, telling a company they fail just becourse you didnt get picked out of 140k ppls and just becourse you get frustrated dosnt mean G1 fails.
    Patience is a killer, but it pays damn good at the finish line..

    Cya in San Paro!

    ReplyDelete
  36. Don't act smart please :) Telling other people to stop saying things like "wohoo i got a beta key" when loads of others didn't. AND, the information isn't clear. Didn't say anything about me wanting a key. Please learn how to read. ^^ It might help in the game. Have fun!

  41. I think on of the things causing alot of the frustration with those who havn't gotten them yet is that alot of people are getting more then one from their 'alts' they made to sign up.. and apperently from what i've gather.. majority of beta keys seem to be going out to areas around north US.. I guess might be something relating to server issues but yeah.. just my thought.. though do agree on one thing.. the guys at G1 should keep a eye on IP's from the 'beta sign ups' if possible.. so more people can have a chance instead of one person having a dozen accounts in beta x-x

    Well.. just chillin about around the southern side of the US.. waiting for when keys come our way :J

    ReplyDelete
  42. dam i wait for my pass in apb and nothing! what happend! my email is la_rata2@hotmail.com plz i send my beta key and nothing

    ReplyDelete
  44. damn man, ive been waiting forever for this and im on the East and played before and i still dont get a code? D: poop

    ReplyDelete
  45. I'd advice people constantly crying that they want to play, those who spent several days spamming refresh, those who celebrate getting an invite etc to go to google and search for information on what BETA is. It's testing, not playing. It's like working without pay to get a game as flawless as possible for release. People doing the above should think twice. Heck some people dont even know how to log in.

    For real beta-testers who doesnt get in because gamers get in before you. Why pissed? Only one loosing on a real beta-tester not getting the invite is the game company.

    A questions for Björn.

    By slapping in more and more people on the server to monitor the capacity, isnt that kind of stress test something that is Open Beta material? Will US and EU use the same login server?

    ReplyDelete
  46. if i dident get accepted Do u at G1 email me if i dident get in

  47. OMG i signed up and filled out my appilication like in the second week of february and still nothing plz Bjorn help plz, ive signed up on two of my emails logged in with one of my finished ones and it says invalid user or password plz help

  48. IF you must send 100,000 invites create more servers do it,we just want to play this awesome game!

    ReplyDelete
  49. Beta's aren't just to play around with to see if the game is good or not. They're to make sure the game is perfect and people will enjoy playing it. And really no one cares if you played the first APB I'm guessing they just want people who they can trust and HELP them. Just be patient and wait untill the Open or untill the game releases.

    ReplyDelete
  50. 2 of my friends get a key and i didnt :'(

    ReplyDelete
  51. Just relax people...
    you may or may not get a key
    but if you do please remember
    Beta is to help find the bugs
    so if you get a key.. try and report any bugs you may find
    Also richie_ricky96
    people like you with 'multiple email sign ups' is one reason why it's taking so long for others to get in :/

  68. pretty annoyed that I beta tested the original, did key to the city, and played the original till death and my friend who has specs nowhere close to as good as mine gets an invite.(he also didnt play or beta test the first one) Really annoyed

    ReplyDelete
  69. Hey guys it seems that everyone is disapointed and/or cant speak english because they ask for APB EU yet if we were Americans and we were playing the beta how much time would you want to test the game for ? 3 weeks is good :) To fix all the kinks and all the bugs that the game has and some server issues. @G1 I have to agree with most of the other APB enthusiasts with the fact that you need to check Multi-accounting IP checks because it seems very unfair that multiple noobs are getting invited because of having registers +5 accounts please resolve this :D

  70. hey Bjorn/Techmech

  77. Ive been applied since march 1st and no invite.Im in illinois and ive been waiting for apb since it came out.Help!!I have 7 emails which none of them received cb key

    ReplyDelete
  78. Hopeless to wait for CB anymore.... filled out almost as soon as apps came out - beta player - and active on anything APB reloaded....


    Move to OPEN BETA so the rest of the 140,000 can play now.... and its the only way you can really see what your servers can handle, not just X amount of players

    ReplyDelete
  79. I was playing fine this whole time but all of a sudden I get this error in red saying something about my connection and I tried logging in again and even restarted my computer but whenever I try to join a district nothing works and my internet connection gets interrupted. any idea why this is happening? this internet error happened in og apb and I couldn't continue playing after certain days and now it's happening again. why?
    please email me back at disgrlxkc@hotmail.com

  81. not to put words in their mouth but im pretty sure the reason a lot of folks who tested the last one arent getting in is G1 wants unbiased, un-predispositioned players who weren't previously exposed to the game in order to get input from a fresh audience, again, with unbiased opinion.
    second I'm pretty sure the lower spec guys are getting in so they can fully test the "dumbed down" client ive been reading about.

    ReplyDelete
  82. I figure a veteran player is more likely to shoot straight for the n-tec dvah/Stabba CCG and the bishada,which means most other items ie NFAS, cellante, etc. aren't going to get as much attention or thorough testing.

    ReplyDelete
  83. I am from EU... will it be a biger chance for me to get a key when the eu servers are up and runing?

  87. How about we leave us-west alone and move on to the rest of us?! You've spent a damn month on them, it's about time to go to Europe or hell, if that isnt working, skip them and go to us east so I can get my damn key, id like to have input on this to improve it before the release!! This honestly is ridiculous, many of us have waited for over a month now only to see that another 10k of the us west gets in.... Very disappointing, this game is past the anticipated stage and has moved into the when the hell are the even going to do anything with it, me and a friend racked up well over 400 hours and we reported plenty of bugs in the previous apb that helped it, I'd figure we would be good candidates but I guess not.

    To be short: move away from the damn us west and move on to Europe, and if EU is not ready, give us us easterners keys already, the way this is going we will be waiting for the actual game when all the good games release this year and you will have a sudden drop in activity... This is taking too damn long guys, lets focus on this instead of the open beta, because there won't be one the way this is going

    ReplyDelete
  88. I totally agree with Steven here.
    Sending out CB keys for 10.000 people is making people leave.
    You either keep a CB to a small amount of people, or you head on to Open Beta. Sending out all these keys to CB applicants make them happy but there are lots of people that don't get in, that waited months for this.
    The most weird thing here is that the applications go by a first come first serve basis, and my friends and me have some powerhouse PC's here and applied right after we got the emails and still nothing. Seems I should've put in a low-end system then?

    And what is the point of letting 10k in CB if you, G1, stated that OB is around the corner already?

    ReplyDelete
  89. I thought you were "gamersfirst" ? i have 2 friends with a shitty connection and some old hardware who just got an invite, but me with crazy hardware and one hell of an epic connection, i DONT GET SHIT! what is up with that "gamersfirst"?

    ReplyDelete
  90. lol eziodk so true!!!

    GAMERS FIRST
    well, people with a shitty pc are considered gamers???

    ReplyDelete
  91. Thanks jori, and I hope no one takes my comment out of context and states it's just another person who wants in..., when I actually want everyone before me to get in but I'd like in to give input on this, I want this to be a game geared toward everyone, which it was. I just want then to hurry their ass out of west already and give everyone else a chance at the closed beta... Also get your stuff together on time management skills. Around the corner for us, is not the same as developers around the corner term... 6 months sir, is not around the corner for us. Please I ask that you hurry this along, you already have a game this shouldnt take a year as if you started with nothing. I'd like to get back to coming home from a long day to roam San paro

    ReplyDelete
  92. I really think GamersFirst should focus on the EU servers and then carry on to the open beta, since there is so many that wants to get in to play and help! And there is already 15'000-20'000 players in there. I thought closed betas was made for an even smaller amount of people but maybe I'm wrong?

  94. Holy crap, everyone is freaking out over nothing. Be patient, I want to play the game to. But instead I'm waiting for the game to release of for open. And stop saying crap like "REAL GAMERS FIRST!!!!". Technically if someone plays a game, in that moment they are considered a gamer. It's a beta, be patient and wait.

    ReplyDelete
  95. qw.. i admire you for your patience... but i think its unfair no matter what you or anybody else says.. sorry.. but thats just me :)

    ReplyDelete
  96. I agree that it does seem unfair, I do find it weird that people with great computers don't get let in. Point being with all the comments saying that I find it annoying. What I find unfair that the key is only the first part. After you recieve a key for some odd reason I have to apply for the beta and use the key?! That's just dumb, once you recieve a key, you should just be able to enter it and play. But oh well, thats life.

    ReplyDelete
  97. im quite sure that when you apply for the beta, filling out all your info, and then get accepted, you can use that key immediatly to download and play the game

    ReplyDelete
  98. It is more like getting the key so that you can send a closed beta application. After that you just have wait until you are invited by Gamers First. THEN you can start playing. The key is only used in the closed beta application.

    ReplyDelete
  99. No key is really required for downloading the game, just download GamersFirst LIVE and make your way from there. The hard part is to log in.

    ReplyDelete
  100. Can fix that log in erroe 10010 problem plz

    ReplyDelete
  101. Well, I had to to get a key and then send in an application and then I have to get accpeted. I've been waiting to get accepted for a while now and I doubt I'm going to be able to. I didn't get my key from them I won it in a contest so it might be different but I don't know.

  102. anyyfuckingway.. im gonna go strangle myself for beeing mad about my friends gettting beta invites and not me.. the game will come to me eventually.. silly me.. :D

  103. desanimei agora.... pô to cadastrado la no site faz mó tempo, e já invitaram 20.000 mil pessoas e nao recebi o convite... desisto!

    ReplyDelete
  104. To "eziodk"

    Actually we have 25,000 people enabled right now. The real problem is that we had over 150,000 people before Feb 15, and today actually have well over 250,000 people interested in the game having submitted their email to us.

    So unfortunately, we simply cannot enable that amount of players until we have completed the cycle of testing ALL the different servers, configurations, client types etc.

    But that also means that we ensure those who wait will get a MUCH better experience in later Closed Beta or in the Open Beta.

    ReplyDelete
  105. Thank you.. im sorry if i acted out a bit :D just frustrated, i can see your problem... but i will be patient :) cant wait for my entry and start slaying.. ;D

    ReplyDelete
  106. Love all the people shouting "check the IPs", so only one person at a lan event or gaming center can play (or heaven forbid they take their computer round a friends to play in the same room as them). I happily have played APB since CB (when RTW owned it) and am now back in (im in england btw). Most of my clan has now gotten in (all from eu and also played original apb). Anyway, gotta go, APB is calling me. :)

    ReplyDelete
  107. Just because i am curious... what was the "method" you used to pick the first players of the closed beta? did you pick the first ones? or the ones with the best specs? like internet connectio ect. ect.. and can a "Dxdiag confirmation" be interrupted if you dont think it adds up? because i kind of have a feeling that i have "forgotten" some drivers for my GTX 570 because i have the 3D vision driver.. i mean.. do you sort those people out with "wierd" dxdiags? :) cheers

  111. @Bjorn

    Question, I got my key and filled out the beta application. I was just wondering how long will it take for me to get accepted (if I do) and if I don't will I get an email saying I didn't get accepted?

    ReplyDelete
  112. @qw
    yes i also wanted to know that :)

    ReplyDelete
  113. For the selection method - the key is to get a really broad selection of players. So we have people in the beta with crap machines, fantastic machines and everything in between, which is the whole purpose of it. Generally after removing ineligible players, and gotten a range of different spec machines, we have favored those who were first to complete the application (not just submitting their original "interest" email, but actually applying) and have also generally favored the US (since that's where the current servers are). Once the EU stuff is up, that will of course be reversed (now we will push everyone in the EU to play on the EU realm).

  115. One last question, all the 10,000 invites you sent, does that mean all those 10,000 people egt accepeted or do the mahority get accepted?

    ReplyDelete
  116. I have a perhaps silly question...

    I had recieved the first key and submitted my data, then waited checking my email every few days..

    A few days ago i relized that the original "key" had gone to my junk mail (spam) box, which is set to auto delete every day. Thus my origianl "key" was deleted probly right after I submitted my info.

    So if I had been sent an invite and it had been routed to my spam box, it would have been deleted..


    So my question is, is there a way to check if you got an invite,., say in my profile page or something?

    Also. I knoticed that my profile page here is not the same as my profile page on the main GF forum.

  117. Giving a key for one IP isn't a good idea at all. My husband and I both played original APB beta, and applied for g1 APB beta. Neither of us have received an invite yet either, but I know within time we should get one. So, people in our situation would not receive multiple keys if they did it through IP one key only. I think the best bet would be to give everyone a limited time to reply to the email, and sign into the game. Those who don't sign into game with the beta key should be removed off the list, and replacement keys should be sent out. Atleast that way there isn't keys just laying around not being used.

    I can help you with that.

    All you have to do is go to there website, look for "GamersFirst LIVE" and download it. Once downloaded and installed they will give you a selection of games including the Closed Beta. Download and install that, abd then try to log on. If you're sucsessful you have been accepted.

    Only problem with that is the error going around so this method, will useful, might not be 100% useful. Hope this helped

  119. @LeJohn if you sign into the forums and don't have access to the Closed-Beta section, then you haven't been accepted yet. There is no key to get access, once you submit your information you just have to wait until they activate you account.THe email is to just let you know it was activated.

    Thank you for your answer, would be so nice ! And the new character doesn´t matter just the latency..

  128. When do we get a new Blog entry?

    With Infos about new Patch details, Invites, Eu Server?

  129. @qw.... Thanks, found it.

    @jordan, Thanks, found my problem, I bought and played Sword 2 when it went gold as well as 9 dragons ao I already had a GF account for years, My APB account was tied to my RTWs account so I actually have 3 GF accounts, created before the games went Ftp and transfered to GF. The problem was logging into the right account, the one tied to APBR not the rest of the old GF accounts.....


    DOH!!!

  130. @Bjorn
    can we please get some info on the US east coast server, i would like to see what my latency would be connecting to a server that is closer to me.

  131. Dear Bjorn/Bjørn/Björn.

    I am still wondering.
    What will I get back from my old account?
    Will I at least get to keep my old in-game name? And my designs, cars, weapons?

  132. How do I download the game without being accepted to closed beta

  133. @MurkinFoolz

    You still won't be able to play. You won't be able to log in.

  134. I have seen many people say they can log in without getting the email saying they have been accepted. I figure it's worth a shot

    download it with this


    also @TechMech

    I have a problem downloading the patchfiles with the launcher
    (yes I don'T have a key yet but wanted to install the game already :D )

    anywayz
    when I download the patchfiles with the launcher I only download at like 3-8kb/s

    how is that? O_o
    I have a 16Mbit connection and the speed is up too so that shouldn't be the problem :/

    I admit, I tried to. Guess I'm unlucky or something cause it didn't work for me.

  137. For anyone that would like to check to see if they were accepted to close beta without having to download the game, just log into the forum if you can see the hidden close beta forum post you are in. It's as EZ as that.

    ReplyDelete
  138. thats the (black) APB forum not the (grey)GF main forum, if all you got in you will see the Beta forum under the english forum.

    anyone know when the next batch of keys go out?

  141. a classic example of gamersfirst failing.... very poor job informing the anxious gaming crowd. This is very effective if your trying to lessen the amount of people interested in the game, such as myself.

    ReplyDelete
  142. yeah me also, every day i want apb a little less

    ReplyDelete
  143. Me 3. The hype was so high and it feels like i have been let down... kind of like looking into the crowd for my parents at my first soccer game - and they are not there... or... something.

    All jokes aside, i can only take so much. I (like many others) have been wanting to play this game again since it was ripped out of my hands.. now i know people are playing and im not and i cant do anything about it. I just move on to other games until i forget apb is coming back.

    ReplyDelete
  144. I know that I'll end up playing no matter how long I have to wait. I am concerned for the game though. I saw the huge drop in population during APB's original beta way back. Really hope things go a lot better this time around.

    ReplyDelete
  145. Sigh...

    I think we have blogged every few days for the last few weeks (in addition to responding IN the blog comments almost daily), we (ie all the devs) have posted on the message boards every few hours, and we generally have kept everyone updated.

    So I do take it a little bit personally when "achillez" says we are failing to keep people informed. Huh? Or JohnnyVigilante no longer wants to play?

    No problem, we will be happy to kill off your accounts ;)

    But in all honesty, I feel I again have to remind people THIS IS CLOSED BETA. We are performance testing, hack testing, system testing, balances testing, crash testing AND the team is also building all the new features not yet released and finishing up the new datacenters closer to your location.

    So those who get to wait a bit actually get a progressively better product. In fact, if you are looking for a closer to finished game, I'd suggest you just wait til Open Beta to join, since Closed Beta STILL will have issues and problems and lack core progression items.

    So let me remind everyone - this is Closed Beta.

    We are thrilled you are excited about the game. So are we. We are so excited we cannot wait to make it even better.

    Nuf said.

  146. Ok Bjorn, you really have this all wrong. You really don't know how much i actually like this game, and i am extremely upset that i cannot play it. I have been bouncing between other subscription games only to distract me from APB coming back out only because it honestly drives me up a F-ing wall i am not in there playing it. I have waited eagerly for every blog post, and did everything i could as fast as i could to get into CB and have not. Yes im an old APB player from beta and played through live with action time bought constantly - when the game was gone i couldn't believe it and it was like a weird gamer hole that couldn't be filled from any other game. You can understand some people have been waiting MONTHS and MONTHS to play this again, and it doesn't sit easy with me while i lay in bed - knowing others are playing and giving feedback when that's all i want to do.

  147. @johhnyvilante

    Come on man... Its just a game :) its not your life, im quite sure Björn is right.. If we get in at Open beta we get a better experience.. I understand your eeger for playing... But, be patience man :) its just a game :) you'll be In at some point :D

    ReplyDelete
  148. Ok moving from the iphone to the pc again. so continuing from before

    @Johhnyvigilante

    At first at had the same "feeling" as you, i applied to the beta and everything else about 1 hour after i could because i live in denmark.. anyhow.. i read all these angry comments to Gamersfirst saying they sucked, and they were mad about not getting a key.. look at it this way, if it had all been reversed and we got keys and the others didnt... who do you think would have been raging here? them - yes. G1 cannot have 250.000 people in a Closed Beta to satisfy everyone in the whole goddamn world. Bjorn told us that there is 25.000 beta testers currently playing. And accorting to my friends there is still a lot of errors and mistakes in the game. i personally am a "great" Getaway driver, due to my 12 year experience in Racing Games, but they say the cars are wierd, and cannot be controlled. So if i dont get in the closed beta (which i hope i do, but wont go insane if i dont) I will definelty be in the Open Beta, and hopefully, everything works at that time, and everything will be Awesome! :) Have a nice day

  149. @Johnny
    I totally understand you
    I have been in the RTW beta too and have been chosen as a beta tester while the game was out to do further testing....

    and when it was away I have been like shit
    I'm going to miss this game
    since it's really a unique game and not comparable with other games.

    Yes it seems a bit like GTA IV or so but it's different to it in most parts.
    Which doesn't feed this "hole"(the way you called it)

    I'm so eager to play this game, my friend got accepted for the US Server(we are from europe though) and he didn't know the game b4 I told him some weeks ago.....

    And I'm waiting for more and more invites and just not getting accepted :/

    Not to say the devteam ain't doing a good job.

    I really have to say that TechMech is doing a real good job on sharing information about updates and stuff and I don't blame anyone for this, but I really can't hold it anymore.^^

  151. I actually dont understand why it takes so long time to get the game online again, it was a finished game before, its not totally new. Sure you bring new things into it but i dont understand why you need to do so many fixes and need to change the balance of all weapons, for me the weapons were balanced when i played APB before it was closed...

    Im using a standard "up to 20mb" adsl connection (get around 14mb on average.

    Computer spec is

    E8400 Core2duo (3ghz)
    ATI HD4770 512
    4gb Mem
    Was running XP, upgraded to win7 yesterday.

    AS you can see, its nothing special, but it plays APB fine on medium.

  153. @Richard

    Yeah your specs are quite "ok".
    I have:
    Core 2 Quad 9550 (think its 9550 xD)
    4 GB DDR2 memory
    Nvidia GTX 570 1200 mb
    and a 3D Vision Goggles as well.. so im quite high specked :)

    and i have a 30 MB/ 3 MB connection :)

    No problem, we will be happy to kill off your accounts ;)"

    Are you kidding me? The reason people are pissed off is because old school players paid CASH to buy the game and paid more MONEY to keep playing every month. Where is the priority for the people who have actually PAID to play the original game?????? How about priority for those who had original beta?? or pre-purchase collectors edition?? Those are the people are SHOULD be in the beta, not the idiots who saw your stupid post first. Get it straight.

  156. I played APB since it died out. People have been getting like 3 of there accounts activated and I still don't have 1 beta acc. Very disappointing.

  158. @achiliez
    wake up. its been said a million times that u gave money to RTW. and APB does NOT belong to RTW anymore. so basicly ur money went down the drain. so has ur priority. to be honest, even tho i beta tested RTW APB and played the game, i think new players should go in first. since they dont really know what they are doing, they are most likely to catch some bugs out :)

  159. @achiliez

    Im quite sure we arent "pissed" because we paid for the original apb... We just wanna play... Like everybody Else... Chillax Bro ;)

  160. We are performance testing, hack testing, system testing, balances testing, crash testing AND the team is also building all the new features not yet released and finishing up the new datacenters closer to your location.

    This,

    I also was one of those that played APB from beta and was partying in the Social District when the pulled the plug (I had reupped my account 2 weeks before). So I understand the frustration some here are showing and I also know several people including my son and daughter in law that I introduced to APB and urged then to apply for the CB get in while I have been sidelined.

    Those that only played APB for a short while got a taste for it and are chomping at the bits for more, however those of us that played from the start knew and posted on the RTW forums what all needed to be fixed. I remember posting that the N-tec, OBC and a few others needed to be balanced and that pistols should never be able to counter snipe HVRs as these were game killing issues that needed to be addressed, though they were not the main cause of APB's demise they were nails in the coffin.

    Just to let you understand, I installed then APBR CB from the GF launcher and every morning I check to see if it will let me in( then I check my email and a standard routine ), and I will happily do so until May, June or even July IF it means that the issues we raised this time last year are fixed. I would rather wait and play the game we all know APBR can become than to jump in now and deal with the issues APB had.

    There only suggestion(s) I can and will make is; keep working on it GF, the missions still need to be fixed, the weapons are getting there, and new districts need to be developed. However I would also suggest you create a normal playing server with the stuff that's working and a "test" server for the balancing the new stuff, that way the game can come on line sooner, we can play sooner and you can start recouping some of what you spent sooner. It is easier to add stuff from a test server than to try and add it from a dev server.

  161. For those of you that dont understand just how bad it was, this was a screen shot I took. I was one guy running four (4) bots, I talked to him and he showed me how he could have the bots move as a unit. And when i say bots I mean, they were auto everything.

    This is what we were facing toward then end, this is one of the things that need (needs) to be fixed.

  162. Lol you guys act like you're gonna die if you don't play the game, G1 doesn't even have to allow any of you guys play the closed beta, but they wanted to be generous and allow regular users to join the closed beta. And they get bashed by other users because they didn't get an invite lol. Get a girlfriend and wait patiently until you get invited. I promise everything will be fine.

    ReplyDelete
  163. @ ghostface
    i dont understand your logic. New players would be able to find bugs in the CB?? How could new players POSSIBLEY benefit in the CB over old players?? If GF wants the very best understanding on how to fix the game they should be using OLD PLAYERS because they are the ones who knew what the game once was. How are new players going to understand that? Also Bjorn, i mean to disrespect. I fully understand the hardwork you put into this as well as the rest of GF. But being an old player, seeing all these noobs getting priority over me sends me over my limit... (most of them are just playing to play also, they dont care what you need to fix)
