End of Closed Beta Week 3 - prepping for Open Beta

This will be a very short update.

Right now we have 25,000 testers in the game, and now also well over 250,000 people that have registered their interest in the game. We continue to see between 600 and 1,600 simultaneous players at different times of the day, which is great and a slightly better than expected number from the small population we have let in so far.

We are still performance testing and improving things during CB3 and working on some alternate configurations to further reduce server-frame-lag, but overall we now have a rather stable setup. We'll analyze this weekend's results on Monday, and then decide where we go from here.

The dev, design and art teams are still working on a few minor tweaks in CB, but are mostly now focused on the Open Beta build that's coming up.  Most importantly the OB build works out several core issues that we have to solve before going into OB, everything from how to recover previous character data, to how to test taking premium payments, to working on several progression issues.

The IT side is working hard to get the EU datacenter configured for the CB-3 build. Unfortunately we found out at the end of last week, that a pair of critical network components needed to finalize the build have gotten stuck in EU customs, so it's a little unclear when those will be cleared and delivered. The servers are all nearly set up, but now we need those additional Edge networking components before going live. We hope to get an update Monday from customs, and hopefully get our items back in the next few days. As soon as we do we will enable the EU location.

And yes, as soon as the EU launch is imminent, I will post here - and then we'll unleash at least 25,000 people on the EU datacenter as well (and anyone already playing CB in the US can then ALSO play on the EU location, just for the heck of it).

And NO, I know this waiting thing is KILLING you, and it's KILLING us too, so no point in repeating how much YOU deserve to be in the game. We agree. You DO deserve to be in the game.

And we WILL enable the game to everyone as soon as everything is ready. AND we still promise that all those who applied for the closed beta WILL get early access, ahead of Open Beta. And when the EU location goes live, that's when we will NEED all you additional testers to try it out.

Looking forward to seeing you in San Paro.

I will continue to post at least every 2-3 days to keep everyone updated, as well as daily on the message boards along with all the developers and the designers.

Cheers,

  4. Would love to hear more about plans with Open Beta and the new gamemodes / rulesets outlook and how that will play into the release of the game. :) Thanks keep up the great work!

    ReplyDelete
  5. It'll be a good day when this goes into open beta. Really hope the servers will be all good when that first initial wave of OB users gets in. It's gonna be like an avalanche of players. The update was great to read, thanks Techmech!

    It says in the original post that " anyone already playing CB in the US can then ALSO play on the EU location". From what information is available, there is nothing to suggest that the US server is going anywhere.

  8. the only thing im woundering about is when is the score system going to be setup so we can see what clans and players that is toping the list ?
    imean that is something that i feel is importet ,atleast for our clan that play for the fun but also to win and whit no record of win and loses ... it wont be the same :(

  9. Letting the US guys go in the EU serv is a really bad idea!

    ReplyDelete
  10. Would be better if we could just move our characters from US to EU server.

    ReplyDelete
  11. @ Kent Lang;
    Actually, it's a good idea, in the same way it was a good idea to let the whole world into the US servers... Stress test that baby. If we break it now, it won't happen live.

    ReplyDelete
  12. @ashley

    If there are as many interested players as GF claims there is, then only 10% (25,000 of 250,000) of the games potential population is playing. I doubt that constitutes a proper stress test for the servers.

    ReplyDelete
  13. So much Capslocks in this post!
    Im German and already in the CB.
    Dont worry bout not being in it!
    Its 30% buggy and 100% laggy,
    so please be patient.

    Hugs, Myrothas

  14. I'm in closed beta already, but being Spanish, I have a latency 300+ , usually 400-500, wich makes it a bit unplayable (try driving with that ping, is funny xD).
    Can't wait to be able to play in european servers =).

    ReplyDelete
  15. All I can read is the progress of APB (close to Open Beta as I can read). Is anyone even focusing on fixing the client bugs players are getting while testing APB? AFAIK there hasn't been a new update since days and still my system keeps on crashing for some random unknown reason (used to play APB RTW no crashes no lag).

    ReplyDelete
  16. Will beta symbols be able to be transferred into OB/Live like the RTW APB ones will?

    ReplyDelete
  17. @Bjorn
    When do you expect the parts getting through Customs? :) And when do you expect the servers in europe to be up and running...? :)

    Hugs from EzioDK :)

  18. Thanks for keeping us updated!
    Can't wait till' open beta!

    Ive tried everything to quench my thirst to get my hands on APB!

    Heck! Ive ate a whole two bags of nachos and a cheeseburger!

    Again.. I can't bloody wait!

  19. I'm in the beta and I can wait. The game is to laggy for me, to slow of a frame rate.

    And the US server will still be up i think. But it will allow people to move to the EU server, cause some of the US server tester are from the EU.

    ReplyDelete
  20. Otherwise nice to see that something is gonna be done about the frame rate. ^^

    ReplyDelete
  21. What about US-East? is that going to happen still?

    ReplyDelete
  22. Do we know approx how much time until Open Beta starts? I'd like to know just so I can at least spend all my money and things before our characters get deleted.

    Thanks!

  23. i just found a realy good solution on the cheating problem , imean it wont stop peapol from getting cheats and crap like that but it will help banning peapol that are useing aimbot and other cheats ,sens its F2P it kind of easy just makeing a new account and go back to cheating right , and other things you shouldent be doing .

    i feel that im not alone when i say its kind of scery haveing a free game when we have prof off peapol cheating in the past ,so to the simpel solution of banning peapol and the problem of them just makeing new accounts .
    get a creditcard registration . and now you might say i dont have a creditcard and bla bla well you can most prarrents do if your to young . and when that acc gets banned the creditcard gets bannaed aswell . kind of simpel ,i think its a realy good ide that you should think about..


    i dont have time to correct the spelling ect im at work ! :P
    GTG back to that crap now

  24. @sinco
    good idea
    yet I think it would decrease the count of gamers playing this game because many of them are underaged I think

    ReplyDelete
  25. @Rene smart underaged people will always find their way. and us grown up people don't need anymore than that.

    I think it's a perfect solution. Being and F2P and yet you need to show your credit card even without spending. That's a weird yet seemingly working concept.


    It's also useful for the game team, because someone who already registered a payment mode will be me more prompt to spend in-game with one or two easy clicks. Like the AppStore !

    ReplyDelete
  26. @Sinco

    Really really bad idea...

    i am 26 and have no Creditcard... why?

    In Germany Creditcards arent popular like in USA ...

    so most of German user cant play APB because the dont want one XD

    horrible idea, thats pretty much like alowing 1 account on an IP, DO NO DO THIS G1st. Cause i have multiple people play on my computer.

    Just a horrible idea..

  30. Can you please help me! i have aplied for the beta i enter my key and filled in my application. But apperently you check the pc specs and i entered all the info on my computer that cannot run APB reloaded. Originally i was going to use a laptop i am getting this week which can run APB Reloaded. what im worried about is that if you check my specs i sent they show that i cannot run APB, so will you not let me in?

    ReplyDelete
  31. PLEASE CAN YOU HELP ME? ok, i got the key entered it, filled in the application but i was on a computer that cannot run APB. Origionally i was going to play on a laptop which i will have on thursday. Apperently when you send your application they check your pc specs. So it will come up saying i cannot play :( can you tell me if this is true and if i will or will not be able to get into the Closed beta aat some point? My email is kiwi.h.w@hotmail.co.uk

  32. i not from the US im from sweden
    and for the underage peapol , they have parents so they can use there creditcard if they are allowed to .
    and yes some parents have tons of kids and that something i havent figuer out yet .
    then germany most be the only country in the world that dosent use credit card when the hmm go to the store to buy food ect.....
    well isent visa/mastercard a world wide credit card???????
    and how you get your money from work they send by postcards ?
    everyone have a credit card if not they should .....but sens you dont have one, think of something else that can be bound to you like a credit card ........
    and i never did say it was a perfect fix but so far its the best i got

    ReplyDelete
  33. @shan963
    hmm dosent matter if you have 4 biljon peapol playing on your computer . the credit card will be bound to YOUR account so if your "friends" whant to play apb on your computer they logon to there account .....dont see where you did miss that part that its on your account not your computer ...
    and if your have tons of peapol playing on your computer and account downloading cheats ect well better tellem not to cheats can come whit virus aswell :P

  34. I have a small question to anyone listening:

    Is anyone else not getting ANY e-mails AT ALL from the "APB Newsletter" which is supposed to be sending weekly updates? i.e. the one you sign up for at gamersfirst.com/apb

    ReplyDelete
  35. @Sinco

    This is a horrible idea. I am not underage and I don't have or can get a credit card. To have a credit card over here, you have to have a steady income, and I am a student.

    I doubt a lot of parents would even provide Credit Card details to have their child play APB. Many people are wary of the risks with Credit Cards online.

  36. How will the differnt servers work? will you char be able to cross from the US - EU server? or will chars be bound to the server you created them on?

  40. you dont need 4biljon to get a credit card , you need like 5 usd a year for a credit card and yiu can have npn creidt on it aswell so you can only use the cash you have on the card just liek eny other bank cards !!!!!!!!!!!!!!


    i have had bank cards from like hmm i was 15 years old ...
    where you peapol liv that dont have "credit cards" bank cards ........

  42. That idea would work if it were a paid game. But it's not. Adding in credit cards as a restriction only warrants people wanting to cheat wanting to obtain other peoples credit cards. Fix one problem, create another.

    ReplyDelete
  43. @Sinco

    Credit Cards =/= Bank Cards

    Credit cards work differently and you need a stable income to get one. My guess is that you would use your parents card, you have no idea how they work.

  45. I've been in the beta for a few weeks now and I must say I'm quite enjoying myself. I would like to congratulate GamersFirst on their great work on all of the fixes from the Real Time Worlds version. The constant updates to the community are quite a joy especially since this is a free game and this much support usually doesn't come with many free to play games. Great job and thanks for the updates.

    ReplyDelete
  46. Love the game. Loved it when I got in to beta the first time around too. I hope that you will introduce the chaos servers this time around. I think it would really bring in the players.

    ReplyDelete
  47. As always, you all rock my socks. Seeing a dev team work so close with its community is really refreshing. It is posts like this that that PROVE your name sake. A lot of people say they are for their gamers, but you truly put them first.

    dosent matter what kind of income you have , for a visa card that dosent have credit on it you only need as i did say before about 5 usd to kep that card online or what ever you would like to call it ,
    what kind of income you think i did have at the age of 15 ??
    and sens this game is from 18 years and above well everyone that should play the game can go in to the bank and get one .all credit have the option to block you from useing credits if you dotn have a steady income ect . so to everyone seeing that as a big problem , your wrong .
    dont you peapol buy things online ?????

  56. i saw a discussion about credit card registry ... sorry but that's not a good idea. i have 2 credit cards and can get aces to a 3rd one but although i hate credit cards, i just don't have confidence in them, and would never give away information about them, not even to a company like G1

    but i have 2 other suggestions:
    here in romania, where i am from we have a CNP (Numeric Personal Code) on our ID cards that's unique, but you still have to be at least 14 y.o., maybe they could use that at the registration formula if this system is integrated in other countries to

    a second idea would be an active call center for the game, so player can call and report a cheater and they immediately ban him, but i don't know if this is possible for a company that offers F2P games

    none of those solutions are perfect, the best would be an anti cheat software integrated inn the game that bans cheaters automatically

    ReplyDelete
  57. i hope they make sms payment also
    and paypal :P
    that would be nice

    I know what you ment, i was just saying for G1 not to limit 1 account per IP.

    Still a bad idea tho.

    Best bet is to just get anti hacking program that bans hacking users.

  64. ithink i have to say it once more ,i never did say enything about a ip ban sens its useless that we all know .

    and to cleric72 thats not a bad idea ,we have nummbers lika that on our id .and did read something very intresting a bit down aswell about a phone thing ,that something that could work just as good as a credit card well not asgood but still .

    peapol help out here thin of more things that can be bound to "YOU" personally , and see what kind of soulotion we can come up whit to stop peapol from cheating in eny game not just apb :D

    ReplyDelete
  65. if we can find a few good ways to bind peapol from being abel to mass creating accounts we gona lose tons of cheaters right away . and stoping cheating programs well thats like stoping virus ,it can be done but there will always be something new .

  71. ID CARDS - FTW !!!!!

    @ cleric72
    ID Cards!? FTW !! Are you serious!?!?!

    I may not LIKE having to use a credit-card but having to register myself with 'THE' governement to prove who i am - sounds a little NAZIesque to me - Here in the UK its (atm) voluntary, Younger people who look younger than legal age to buy alcohol require 1. Sneaky governemnt. Personnaly I think that alone sucks but as said at least its voluntary (for now.).

    Damn i thought you guys of all people would be against such facist junk. haha :)
    Here in the uk we have enough spying into our lives with cameras all over the place without you encouraging further lacks of Freedom. Talk about a thin end of a wedge - whatever next - blood, urine and dna samples to get access to free games...

    You do understand the fundamental idea of this game don't you? :) a little bit of (A) blah blah
    LOL

    yeah bit over the top i know but thats how it starts - an id card here, a camera or 2 for "your safety", tagging for 'young-offenders', forced to get credit-cards all of a sudden - hell yeah i'll have that micro-chip behaviour modification device if i can get a free game and bread and water.....

    paranoia - who me? stop talking about me will ya ! :D

    Back to earth - the ONLY thinkg we need to be worried about is AIM botters - if parents can't monitor there own childs computer usage or don't care enough to check thats their fault and negligence, nobody elses.

    ReplyDelete
  73. I was wondering if you could go a bit more into actual gameplay changes that will be happening in the future. Personally, I think a lot of the current missions need to be totally re-worked.

    Also an idea I've been thinking of, is it would be cool to have unique missions for 1vs1. Because as it stands now, a lot of the missions are geared towards larger groups and they don't make a lot of sense when it's 1vs1.

    Simple death matches or holding a capture point make more sense on 1vs1 rather than dropping off an item for the final stage.

    ReplyDelete
  74. @Revalis
    LOL
    I like it :))

    damn :) i think you are - i bet we see something like that in our life time - car keys? house keys?

    Heck if you / we thought of it today you can bet your ass its already been thought of, developed and tested in some seedy underground testing lab by 'them' :P

    And you can bet your ass EA or RIAA would have that 'dongle' in action tomorrow if they could... Biometric-Donlges, sounds catchy.

    btw what was this blog about? (some more hyper reality fun coming up :P )

    ah yeah a game or something wasn't it.. thats supposedly being closed beta tested but realy is a reasonably slick self perpetuating advertising campaign eg slightly over exaggerated how many 'BUG's are being fixed (lets face it, the game WAS released and on-line, are you sure it takes 4 months to fix a game that was ? 97% fully working already?.

    Also this 'heavy' bug fixing m.o. in turn should convince those sceptical about the original APB's short comings and at the same time 'hook' old and new players alike to uch an extent that they happily become paying players due to a trickle fed sense of brand loyalty, they certainly would be more likely to pay up having nursed the CB and OB of APBR more so than if they were just to download the game when fully released.

    Very clever, yet obvious sales tactics. (i'm intersted myself but only if i like the game enough of course.)

    N e way it does makes me laugh people begging for beta keys, prolly the same people who WOULD be happy to use biometric-dongles if it ment a free game :))

    See you guys in game - i'm gonna buy the biggest n badest guns n cars n blow the crap out of all of you :) -

  76. Ok everyone Idea to stop, Hackers and cheaters are semi good.. But all of those ways to perform verification
    can be done multiple times... meaning they could just make another account.. it would take more work but they could do it.... I think if you get caught cheating they IP Ban you... yes games dont wanna do that.. but they should.. and lets say maybe 3-5 months they give you another shot..

  90. @ HBomb

    Well yeah ! - ever heard of jokes where you live?

    lighten up will ya.

    btw your previous comment on game suggestions i thought was quite good and far more productive than id cards or ip bans for hackers which is obviously impossible in every asspect (id cards/credit cards will prevent legitmate and under-age players alike, re Ip bans - i assume most people have heard of IPspoofing - therefor neither are possible.)
    Next.

    ReplyDelete
  91. as regards MAC address - unlikely i knw but say you buy a mobo off ebay and it turns out to the mac address is blocked due to the previous owners actions...
    I very much doubt this ide is practical either.

    Though i have seen a video of a guy who took it upon his-self to 'enforce' / police a group of people who were farming cars for APB cash to sell for real $'s

    This in itself could make for a game with actual REAL world benefits .
    ie YOU or a 'squad' of APB Reloaded players become 'super enforcers'.
    So in essence policing the game/hackers/abusers from WITHIN the game itself.
    And for their efforts they recieve some of the premium account benefits.
    Maybe these 'Super-Enforcers'/game moderators have extra abilities to prevent/police 'hackers' in game - special weapons, invisibilty or whatever is required to help them do their job.

    First off we have to define exactly WHAT a hacker is going to be doing in game.

    Are we talking about aim-bots (wall hacks etc)?
    or
    Farming (as explained above) apb dollars to sell on ebay for real $'s (euros/£'s)?

    see here for what i mean

    Give this guy extra 'abilities' so he can police these 'cheaters' - even a crew of APB players out there looking for cheaters. It turns something 'boring' into an actual fun past time :) - sounds like fun (i want a cape and spandex tights, oh yeah and invisibility.)

    ReplyDelete
  94. If someone needs account to beta, I can change it for domain or domain price (~ $15-20)...

  105. Dear Bjorn,thank you and your co-workers for bringing such a revolutionary game back! I believe the new modifiactions that you and your partners are building into the game are gonna be very beneficial to its succes! Sadly I missed my invite to the closed beta to help provide input about the game. I was hoping to ask you if you could look into providing rooftop access to as many blds. as possible. There was only limited access in the 1st APB, the faction that made it to roof first usually had an unfair advantage over players on the ground; in areas where both had rooftop access there were some very exciting skirmishes. Further, I feel with this game you have a great opportunity to provide a 3D-like experience by creating air and sea vehicles for players to use. Such as a lightly armored 2-3 man helicopter for enforcers to only chase crims with. I feel players would find the game even more engaging by having to deal with threats from the sky! In the 1st APB I was sad to see there was so little done in the form of missions in such an elaborate marina area. I think players would love chasing others though city water canals or along the shore in speed boats or 2-man jet-skis. I also think it would greatly help to attain the "virtual fullworld exprience" your company is trying provide by creating contacts and maybe missions that players would have to boat to, on a small island off-shore. Best wishes to you and your co-workers! I eagerly wait your debut!!!

  107. @Walter

    i agree with that - Helicopters (for enforcers ONLY) with jetskis and of course power-boats for all would be a welcome introduction and would encourage many people to consider being an enforcer.

    After all i assume 7%% or more would rather be 'breaking the law' than enforcing it.

    Encouragement is GREATLY needed.

  108. @ Turk

    Drinking the tears of criminals and hearing them lament over LTL is enough encouragement for me.

  120. Ohhh come on!! You haven't built the game from scratch, you just updated it!!

    Why are you taking so long not to release it, just to open a eu server.

    At least keep us updated!

    ReplyDelete
  121. the eu is not interested? :(((( is unfair

    ReplyDelete
  122. @Dave

    this is the fastest Beta Ive ever seen. go outside and cool off and take a deep breath. you will be in before you know it.

    now if they have network gear stuck in customs that's painful could take 1 week easy to get your stuff out of customs hands, i know, i ship stuff internationally.

    sounds like someone didn't due the paper rite.

    ReplyDelete
  123. want to play ¡¡¡¡¡¡¡¡¡¡¡¡¡¡¡¡¡¡¡¡¡¡

    ReplyDelete
  124. say we bought the original game, would there be a possibility of getting a beta consideration, after all we already ran this game at release, so we are a sure thing :D

  126. why are you all so impatient.. they are probably working their asses of right now.. give these folks a chance

    ReplyDelete
  127. Right, we have to wait a little more, then we will able to test the game! ;)

    ReplyDelete
  128. Why? They have Time to worry about fruit Bowl but they don't have Time to post some News that TechMech wanted to do. Every 2 - 3 days some people infame Said more Bugs than in old apb and the weapons are more unbalaced than before but G1 don't Listen to. Here deathcount apbr 1 - 2 Years?!? Cheaters are Welcome... Sad

    ReplyDelete
  129. "I will continue to post at least every 2-3 days to keep everyone updated"

    *caugh* day 5 *caugh*

    ReplyDelete
  130. Wow.. give them a chance stop rushing them, how about you take over and see how YOU do?.. go outside take a breather have some fun.. don't go punching your keys just because you can't get in yet.

    ReplyDelete
  131. This isn't Aunt Margaret's Gardening blog. This is the official blog for a game from an established game company. When people are told 2-3 days they are going to hold the company to that time frame. This is true for all company's. Whether you believe its right or not is irrelevant because its going to happen regardless.

    ReplyDelete
  132. tell me are you people in the US dead or something? havent heard anything from G1 in 5 days now!! and they said 2-3 days to next blogg!! WTF?!

    ReplyDelete
  133. Yep

    TechMech lost his credibility

    and G1 isnt serious anymore

    ReplyDelete
  134. okay now i was hopeing for alite info what they are up tooatleast .we dont ask for much just what they are working on . if the problem whit the eu server are getting fixed. and what they are working on for the moment . it dosent take that long to add a new blog

    ReplyDelete
  135. how about you let them do what they need to do and when they are ready they will start the open beta.

    Jordan :D

    ReplyDelete
  136. so its more than 5 days now without anything new here -.- whats wrong over there?! i just remember the post about the cb waves "EU and US-East just have to wait A LITTLE BIT more... so now we are waiting nearly a month ...

    ReplyDelete
  137. Oh come on get us some infos

    ReplyDelete
  138. They screw up this game again. Im going ot get crysis 2, dont care now about this :/ if they dont care about us. AND if Bjorn gonna answer this: Ye u dont care, u take responsibility about this beta and what? Nothing, and yes its not problem to make little note " sorry guys we f*ck up again, give us X days more " - No, better is leave us with nothing. Good Game man.

    ReplyDelete
  139. sorta annoying updating this blog all day and nothing on the daily boards and nothing on the blog. Did HQ get bombed or what? atleast give us some info ;|

    ReplyDelete
  140. If you are a big company making games, you gotta know that if you make promises you got to make them TRUE. Don't give people information that isn't true.
    this will make people feeel like being lied to, less and less people are gonna play. Goodluck.

    ReplyDelete
  141. Hey, let's all cry about how it's taking Techmech more time to post a blog than what was originally stated! Maybe that'll make them post/work faster on the game. It's so genius that it might work!

    In all seriousness, some of you need to chill your entitled minds. All games take time. Relax, play Xbox or Playstation while you wait. There's no reason to be hating on the blog because you're impatient. A lot of people are waiting, get over it. It's not going to speed G1 up in the least.

    ReplyDelete
  142. Maybe 2-3 day mean 2-3 weeks for GF ?

    ReplyDelete
  143. 5day. hopeing on somekind of life sign from the gameing company that is keeping me going, are they still out there ? or are we left alone ...
    not much else has happend to day but stilling behinde the cold dark grey screen pressing hte update button over and over and over .. when will something new apper , well ihope its before the sun gones down ..

    ReplyDelete
  144. key ue pleaseee¡¡¡¡¡¡¡¡¡¡¡¡¡

    ReplyDelete
  145. So you have time to worry about some ffing fruit in facebook, but not enough time to give info ABOUT THE GAME? seriously in my eyes G1 is becoming less reliable every day..

    ReplyDelete
  146. I like you say 2-3 days, its 5 days now.

    ReplyDelete
  147. I've been waiting for 4 weeks and will not be activated, why?

    ReplyDelete
  148. @DeadDuke

    it's the fastest beta, exactly. what did I say?
    The game was already built, they are just doing some adjustments.

    Everyone in this blog, like me, don't care in waiting more or less time to play the game. I prefer they take longer and release it polished, than they rush and release it full of bugs.

    But If they say they will keep us updated every 2-3 days. Do it!

    ReplyDelete
  149. Seriusly!! I'm geting pissed off!! If they say that they are going to make a new blog in 2-3 days they HAVE to do it!! I just dont get it are they dead or something? lost the internet?

    ReplyDelete
  150. i see people @ my school getting less and less interested in APB, i surely do understand that.

    ReplyDelete
  151. well...thats right.we wudnt bother them that much with our wish of playing OBT\EU server if they didnt said that they are almost done and gonna update blog every 2-3 days,so as we readed the blog now we know about 2-3 days blog update but there is non.the point is - if you cant do whats ur saying then dont say that.so u dont loose respect.

    ReplyDelete
  152. ok,last chance for G1-its today evening(and morning in usa)

  154. 2-3 days takes more like 5 days..
    Comon just post new news. and tell me that the eu server is online i would jump a hole in the air xD

    ReplyDelete
  155. Maybe they want to increase the pageview to 1 million, then, they will give us some updates xDD

    ReplyDelete
  156. "I will continue to post at least every 2-3 days to keep everyone updated"
    if these 2 days are taking more than 5, what else is lied about already ??? staff doesn't answer to emails aswell (for a fanpage, i guess they don't aswer unless your site has over 1 million daily visitor ???)

    ReplyDelete
  157. Well it was posted sunday.
    it was monday for me, because i live in the netherlands,
    will lets say its fryday now here,
    so it be Tuesday there now?

    ReplyDelete
  158. Gang please, I, like all of you have been awaiting this game since the day it was shut down. It will be a whole lot of fun when we all get our chance to play. The dev team working on this game are doing the best job they can. We all need to cool out and find other things to do with our time, until we get a chance to play. I at this moment have no games that interest me at all, and yes im bored as hell. That is not the fault of the G1, because WoW sucks, and so does every game out there at the moment. It was a blast to play in the past, even with all of its balance and other issues it had, it was still by far the best game ive ever played. So lets not bitch and complain, but the opposite. Lets do our best to support the dev team and the changes to the game we all love so much. It will be in a very short time from now that we will all be shooting each other in the face and break dancing in the streets of San Paro. Lets support the game and the Dev team in the difficult job they have to do, and in return recieve the reward of playing it in the near future.
