EU Servers are now live!

That was a slog - but as of about an hour ago, the EU servers are now live!

Right now we have two EU servers running in Frankfurt - and I am very curious to see the performance of those that used to play across the pond before.

More news to come shortly about the upcoming patch.

Cheers,

  1. There's barely any population left on the US servers... How about doing some mass inviting so we can actually play after everybody disperses?

  2. @pimp: so most of them are eu players Oo? oh noz :P


    btw next step is patch 1.5
    after that check if everything is running fine
    then they will invite 25k more ppl mostly from eu if im right...

    maybe they should take an eye for east us ppls to even if im from germany :P

    hope it works everything well and it can get done quick

  5. YAAAAYYY FOR EU SERVERS!!

    ive been playing on US for the last couple weeks with a ping averaging at 250, but spiking as high as 1000ms. now on EU... average ping of 35, no higher than 50 =D (P.S. This is from Scotland)

  6. I hope Bjorn is going to tell if they've already invited more people. I'd like to know if I'm getting in CB or OB, would save me a lot of waiting :/

    ReplyDelete
  7. My heart is quivering with anticipation for OB x3

    ReplyDelete
  8. When we'll get our invitations ?

    ReplyDelete
  9. keeeeeeeeeeeeyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy plz

    ReplyDelete
  10. @Sascha Yes, I'm capable of reading too.

    The thing is, when you have a current population of ~500 people, about to be split in half, while 10% sit in social, you're not going to have any fully populated districts on either side.

    ReplyDelete
  11. be patient pimp, maybe some us players try to play on eu :P is this even possible?

    i dont want too crowded servers anyways so, hope some arent belong to eu servers xD

    hf to do whatever u lonely apb player want to do ;)

    ReplyDelete
  12. Okay...a few more steps to OB...Releasing 1.5 patch in CB to see if its all working...a short intermission between CB and OB...and Tadaaaaa...OB

    ReplyDelete
  13. @ IOU345

    waiting also sucks :( im tire of that

    ReplyDelete
  14. Ping hit 6ms at one point while playing in Waterfront.

    Quite low compared to the ~300ms I get on the US server.

    Keep up the good work G1.

  15. Great work! Can u activate my account? Thanks.

  17. 50-130ms of lag in European servers, compared to the 350-600 I had in the American server. Im in heaven! XD

    ReplyDelete
  18. @ Joel thats my name, give it back lol

    ReplyDelete
  19. Been waiting here in Canada for 2 months for an activation at roblok26@yahoo.com -.-

    ReplyDelete
  20. GREAT ! THX. Finally US players cant own any match !

    ReplyDelete
  21. Tsc... so now the few players actually playing can split between US and EU good job -_- so how about mass inviting 50k players from US and any player who don't log in at least once a day lose his place in line on beta?

    ReplyDelete
  22. please activate my account :(

    ReplyDelete
  23. Have fun EU! I didn't get my account activated though ;( Oh well.

    ReplyDelete
  24. aww was hoping to see if this ment that i could actually drive before i had to head off to work but it seems the G1 servers are down for upgrading

    ah well after all this a few more hours of wait wont be so bad =)

    ReplyDelete
  25. "There's barely any population left on the US servers... How about doing some mass inviting so we can actually play after everybody disperses?"

    This is an interesting revelation, and goes back to me wondering ~ Did the European community have much more activity and community than the US?

    Interesting.

    ReplyDelete
  26. I think there's alot of people who are burned out and waiting on this 1.50 patch / Open Beta.

    ReplyDelete
  27. And alot of people are just bummed out about the new TTK and dont think the game is fun any more... :(

    ReplyDelete
  28. Some US players ping better to the new EU servers than they do to the one in their own state/country

    This is unacceptable. Fix the Westcoast US server already.

    ReplyDelete
  29. Oh this is priceless....first a bunch of people whine about EU servers and now a bunch of people whine about the American servers....OH the irony

    ReplyDelete
  30. Do we get a mail when our accounts are activated?, please make an update on this blog when u activate EUs accounts :D.

    ReplyDelete
  31. I really wanna know when, im looking forward to it so much:)

    ReplyDelete

  40. @Bjorn
    Hey I remember you mentioning those who got beta keys would all eventually get earlier access to the game. Is that going to happen with the next round of invites? or is it still down the road?

    ReplyDelete
  41. now i can play the game!! nice work! but i wonder about the vehicules... they are still long to respond, even better than on US server... should be my computer...

    ReplyDelete
  42. Nice, new servers.
    When can we play on them?.

    ReplyDelete
  43. Um... Guys? I'm in Europe and I got a beta key a while back I've filled it in but I havn't got invited does thata mean I wont get to play CB or gotta wait till they invite me?

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete
  51. Its great! Thank you guys for setting up EU Server! The whole game is completly changed, the way the vehicles drive, the gunfights, everything. It is a ton of more fun now! Thank you! :)

    ReplyDelete
  52. Waiting since January for the CBT! .__.
    following the blog every day LOL
    I start to think I'll just go play the OBT...
    almost three months of waiting for activation!

    "I remember you mentioning those who got beta keys would all eventually get earlier access to the game. Is that going to happen with the next round of invites?" #achiliez
    I remember that too! and in time, I doubted that!

    [So if you received a Beta Application Key at some point and you are now just waiting around for "your wave"]

    ReplyDelete
  53. WTF!!!!! 25% OF THE COMMENTS ARE ALL "cool news, activate me"

    i "love" the internet

    i dont have beta but i am not going around begging for it...

    please, just wait for ob,

    here is a tip to be more patont,

    do NOT expect to get into closed beta, it will save you alot of inbox checking and hoping, plus, it will be that much MORE exiting if you check your inbox and see that you did get into closed beta :D

    ReplyDelete
  54. Awesome news... that should get my ping down considerably when I'm finally allowed in. By the way when can I expect to be allowed in? I redeemed my closed beta key back in February when I got it in the mail. What gives?

    ReplyDelete

    Exactly the same location, exactly the same result! Latency is awesome for us on these servers, absolutely stunning! Suddenly APB just got a WHOLE LOT more exiting!

    ReplyDelete
  56. so if the server are running well they could invite now isnt it :S

    ReplyDelete
  57. Let's just hope the game will be back up and running soon :)

    ReplyDelete
  58. Stfu with your invite comments plz.
    You have your chance with the application and if you not in the beta so wait for the open.
    And dont ask for the open.
    Its come when its come!

    ReplyDelete
  59. YES COMRADES OPEN BETA IT COME WHEN ITS COME!
    DO NOT TALK WITH INVITATION PLEASE! YOU CHANCE WHEN WRITE APPLICATION. IF NOT IN BETA WAIT FOR DIFFERENT BETA. ASK NOT FOR DIFFERENT BETA. COMRADES ITS COME WHEN ITS COME!

  60. CapsCrew @ Paal K?

    Hey Bjorn where are the News?
    (More news to come shortly about the upcoming patch.)

    Its Friday time for a new Wave i think :D

    Greetings from Germany

    ReplyDelete
  61. This just in:
    a horde of of undead zombies - supposedly of former APB fans that parised during a failed hunger strike aimed to force Gamers First to release APB:reloaded ahead of time regardless of bugs and incomplite segments - have been spotted outside of G1's headquaters attempting to storm the building

    Authorities warn civilians to not approach the horde or attempt to feed them, citizens are also adviced to stay in doors and remain calim untill the situation is under control

    this has been you're randomly selected news report by Xesha - stay tuned for more random news and chaos

    ReplyDelete
  62. yes sir... time for a wave for germany ;D

    ReplyDelete
  63. I like the attention to hackers....that was my first main issue, but you still have absolutely no in-game method of reporting, which is a fail. My second main issue, even before opening EU servers up, there is only close to 1% of the original 25,000 beta-invited testers participating. Since APB was a ghost-town under RTW, and still is, how is GF going to attract a very large and active following so the game isn't a single-player borish linear grind?

    ReplyDelete
  64. i agree with your hacker issue. but most of the time i personally think the guys i think cheat are just good players.
    2nd when OB starts there will be alot of players playing. only for me its 6 of my friends without beta invite that will join ;)
    And if they hold their promisses with new content i think they will get a constant playerbase.

    ReplyDelete
  65. Yep if G1 Does what RTW couldnt this game could become the next world of warcraft...because the original idea is SO GREAT but RTW executed it poorly so....

    ReplyDelete
  66. @myccraft APB will never be the next World of Warcraft. I played both and and you can't even compare the two...

    ReplyDelete
  67. @Marcio Costa...i played both too....and world of warcraft Gets annoying and retarded really fast

    ReplyDelete
  68. @mycraft so youre saying that if G1 does this right APB:R will become annoying and retarded soon?

    Well the new TTK is surely getting us there quickly...

    ReplyDelete
  69. i didnt mean that...i meant it may get as popular as wow but nowhere near as retarded

    ReplyDelete
  70. @Márcio Costa
    because APB is a mmo shooter ...
    and not a mmorpg? ಠ_ಠ
    LOL

    im from portugal, EU, i was selected for closed beta, but now the only region that is available for me is North America.
    i really wanna play it. do i have to download something again? help me please!

    ReplyDelete
  75. no if you create new character you can select eu server;) region is not mater ;) but latenci is bad ;) i have on speedtest.net latenci 14 to franfurt and ingame have 70-120

    ReplyDelete
  76. new char? i've never played it. new account maybe?

    ReplyDelete
  77. no just log in in US region and the when you create a character you can choose EU or US...

    @GamersFirst: Pls start more EU Beta Invites...

    ReplyDelete
  78. beta invite start after they decide update game to 1.50 ;) they said update been before or with start eu server ;) they say lot of things but dont do them ;)
    becouse this game is good concept but bad programed and failed optimalized game engine (i never seen worse handling with U3 engine) and failed optimalize network ;)
    they try fix all what RTW messed up but its hard becouse RTW make this game EPIC FAIL ;)

    ReplyDelete
  79. ok that means weeks of waiting before invites are actually sent out... broken promises over and over again...

    ReplyDelete
  80. No love for European players. Have been waiting forever.

    ReplyDelete
  81. theshadow: but i can't play at all, it apears code error 10010 something like this

    ReplyDelete
  82. G1 you seriously need more testers...me and my friend were walking around the action districts and we saw like 15 different people max....Like we checked all gas stations....contacts and stuff

    ReplyDelete
  83. @Sintax

    Your completely and utterly wrong in everyway, your computer must suck really bad, i dont lag at all. You also dont have a clue about beta tests and QA patches, they never said it was a definate they said IF, I know thats a big word for someone like you but google it (if you know how to spell it).

    ReplyDelete
  84. Honestly, it would be nice to know an extreamly loose time frame for anxious players not unlike myself. Something like.. shooting for mid July for open beta and August for launch. Those of us who are following the posts already know that game development is dynamic, but at least we don't have to suffer daily hoping for some word of hope. It give us some sanity back.

    ReplyDelete
  85. @Iandon In one of the first blogs it says that it may slip as late as August for release.

    @ Random Trolls
    Does any1 actually remember RTW and the bullshit we were spoon fed day in day out. Techmech does not have to make these posts but he tries to give us as much feedback as possible.

    If APB is to survive long term then they can take as long as they need getting things sorted.

    Theres most likely some bugs in the patch that need ironing out. Theres only a small team its not Treyarch or Dice with hundreds of employees. every man hour counts and they all have lives outside of APB.

    ReplyDelete
  86. i can't play APB. even when i boght the first game. my computer told me that evrything was well and matched all the requirements. then when i start it up it tells me that my hardware doesn't meet the requirements! was really lloking forward to this :(

    ReplyDelete
  87. I would really love to play. i bought the game then a week later it says servers are down!!! umm i worked hard for the money to buy the game so i would like to play once in a life time!!!

  88. ААААААААААааааааааааааааааааааааааааааааааа

    ReplyDelete
  89. still no love for the eu players ?

    ReplyDelete
  90. Oh dear,
    I really think they SHOULD activate CB accounts.
    A new era began. The time of waiting is over.

    I activared mii beta key in Feb.
    And YET no invitation. I think they should let
    original APB players earlier in than new guys.

    I played APB since key to city. One month later I see that all servers are down.
    It felt like I was scammed. I worked hard for mii money and suddenly all servers are down. I couldn't even acces their site!

    AND YET we still can't play.
    Goodjob G1,
    But still RTW was much and much better than G1.
    RTW has less time to release the game, because EA came in da game and FORCED RTW to release the game.
    I smell laziness and failure in G1-team

  92. Really this reload looks pretty poor right now... US wave was like 6 weeks ago? And u promise to make seconds wave in 1 or 2 weeks after first... Since that i start to doubt your competence.
    Loved apb very much. Spent much time playing it. Please if you take so much time on doing something with it DONT FK THAT UP.

    ReplyDelete
  93. @RPN yes... they promise alot but they dont do things..
    EU servers were up 4 days ago, 4 fkin' days!..
    next step is WAVE 2
    are they selecting people or what...
    their promises have lost their credibility..

    ReplyDelete
  94. @Phosgene oh shut the F up....really?you expect everyone to be like activision and release half assed products every 2 days?...BE PATIENT....Jesus

  95. Hi there

    what about these quotes?

    special this one:

    No, we're days away from open beta at this point so we won't be inviting more people to the closed beta.

  100. @myccraft
    hah... they always say next week this next week this..
    And at this point they said.. FIRST we will open EU servers AMD then we will invite another 25k gamers.

    So maybe you are drunk or you need to learn how to read but that is what they said bro.

    4 days checking if EU servers are running propper is unnecessary, a better check is: inviting 25k gamers.

    ReplyDelete
  101. @Phosgene even if they got delayed you are one impatient asshole...OHH 4 DAYS MY LIFE WILL END

    ReplyDelete
  102. Ok that hurts my eyes. Way to much whining. Anyhow G1 next time you do a beta, make certain Application can be updated. My DXdiag in no way represents my Current setup. When I started submitted it I had a 5 year old PC. Now I have a PC new PC from alienware. (got tired of playing new games on low settings.

    ReplyDelete
  103. Is it so difficult to invite some european people? I don't think so! So what are u waiting for? I don't understand why you're acting like that. It takes less than 5 minutes to invite people, so can u please do it? Thanks.

    ReplyDelete
  104. Panic please stfu!
    G1 invited people if they want to, not when players want it.
    And it takes longer then 5 minutes.

    ReplyDelete
  105. You stfu! Maybe you already received the activation that's why you're talking like that, but I've been waiting for 2 months to play. So don't tell me what to say, I say whatever I want!

    ReplyDelete
  106. @myccraft
    So what.. gimme 4 days with you in a room and
    you'll see what would happen. 4 days is alot..
    and I've been waiting alot now..
    20 march Open beta prepping..
    17 april still waiting..

  107. it doesn't work at all with mine, which is stupid, unfair and plainly anooying.

  108. Panic talk what you want but G1 is fair and don't invite ppl they spam here :)
    But i wish you good luck for the next wave :)
