Open Beta Set for May 23
6:00am PST / 9:00am EST / 14:00 UK / 15:00 CEST

The last patch fixed the annoying disconnect issue we were dealing with, so now version 1.5.1.85 will in fact be the formal Open Beta. Since it is STILL a Beta game, keep in mind we will have various known issues, but at this point we are confident the game will hold up technically while we work on the series of game items we need to improve on and polish (and part of Beta is of course to get those kinks worked out).

We very much look forward to welcoming the Open Beta crowd to the game on Monday.

After we go Open Beta, we will turn our focus to further game and feature polish, as well as inserting some of the new features and functions during Open Beta, all of this leading up to the formal launch, which is likely to take place sometime in the next few months.

The official release is now set for 6:00am PST / 9:00am EST / 14:00 UK / 15:00 CEST on Monday May 23.

Today (Friday) we are having some major site maintenance starting shortly, so everything should be set over the weekend for the Monday launch!

(edited to add: even though I will not promise anything - there is a chance we will have some super-double-secret number of accounts enabled to enter the Closed Beta during both Saturday and Sunday leading up to the beta launch, which "might" permit access to the game for people who had previously registered an interest in the game, so downloading the game early and trying it out probably will not hurt anyone. If you get in - good for you :) ).

  9. nice communication. great, see you all monday.

  10. I can't stop laughing because of the meticulous way in which you listed the launch time in every time zone you could think of. Great work on fixing the disconnects so quickly, though.

    ReplyDelete
  11. Um did the login servers just go down?

    ReplyDelete
  12. just like Des just said Bjorn, its not fixed financial just went down as well.

    ReplyDelete
  13. it is maintenance, try to go to http://www.gamersfirst.com/

    ReplyDelete
  14. Ok i know there will be a maintenace now, but when i login why it says Incorrect password instead of the servers are offline *blabla*

    ReplyDelete
  15. Ehm - sorry - we should have been more clear - we had to bring ALL of it down for this maintenance. So - yes - this was a deliberate one. All for preparing for the big event.

    ReplyDelete
  16. Until when? I wanna play xD

    ReplyDelete
  17. Great news but I am still having the goddamn error code 11006 "You are too young to play APB" and there is like 60 hours ago I submitted an question to support but still no answer :/

    ReplyDelete
  18. Aight Bjorn, thanks for the update on having to bring the servers down. Glad you guys got that damn bug fixed, I will admit though, it was extremely funny reading all the chat from district as the servers were going down.

    Keep up the good work, I'll keep killin crims!

  19. The threat system is completely broken. I have been playing for 8 hours today, and have come out with MVP more than a dozen times. Top kills or 2nd top kills on my team the entire duration of my play, and I am still sitting at threat level 1 bronze. A friend that I was grouped with gained over 10 threat levels, and I didn't budge at all. I logged out due to frustration, and a waste of time. If you guys ever get around to fixing it.. please fix my account. xpoisonx is my ingame name, thanks.

    ReplyDelete
  20. This maintenance should last a little over 1 hour. I will post here when it's all back.

    ReplyDelete
  21. serius G1 SERIUS ?!?!?!

    ReplyDelete
  22. im sure the us peapol gona love this jsut got home from work and ohh apb down for the weekend "YAY"

    ReplyDelete
  23. Two questions:

    When is the Bot/hack users ban?

    When are the LTL weapons going to be fixed?

    This should be done before OB.

    Running it any of the current Bot/hack users will quickly turn players away and give APBR a bad image with the trades.

    LTL is gimpped to the point that you have to decide, do I want to make an arrest or do I want to compeat (Ie: actually win missions). Players trying to use the LTL are usally kicked off teams because they will drop the team to the point of loosing most missions, especally with the current TTK.

    ReplyDelete
  24. I love the new threat system much harder to win do.

    @Sinco its only 1 hour go and buy some beer or something

    ReplyDelete
  25. dubster707 where did you get the 1 hour apb down time from ??

    ReplyDelete
  26. Sinco, whoooaa whoooaaa buddy. I'm sure you were one of these people pissed that the OP was set back, and now that they are pulling all the stops to try and get it right and ready -THE STOPS BEING THEY ARE ONLY RUNNING THE UPDATE STUFF TODAY, FOR AN HOUR - You still whine? Silly. If this was Willy Wonka's You'd lose, you'd get nothing, Gooday sir.

    Also, Bjorn, Thank you for the hard work, you and your team, thank you for the effort, and the little edit makes me excited. I'm going to go and maim about four dozen rabbits for their feet to get enough luck to get early access. Just, you know, letting you know. =3 Thanks!

  28. Im so relieved my clanmates been wanting to play this game one of just got a beta key in the email lmfao hes pissed but hey he can start early before the launch :P which is good congrats DEV team you guys are doing a great job

    ReplyDelete
  29. Nice, thanks for telling us whats going. Hoping to get on Saturday :)

    ReplyDelete
  30. I forgot to mention that we were on an 8 mission win streak, and still my threat level did not go up. I could careless about the downtime if this is fixed. I don't want to have to restart a new character because of this bug..with all the progression I've gained this far.

    ReplyDelete
  31. awww!! i had like 12k saved up doing ram raids and selling security bank trucks Bjorn!

    lol hmm, any chance losing that un-laundered money during a sudden server bring down will be fixed? or is that by design? there was no server warning of it going offline like there usually is for updates. ahh that was a good chunk of unlaundered cash lol.

    ReplyDelete
  32. lol.... Sinco, you need to start reading dude... and go apply for anger management...

    ReplyDelete
  33. Great to see its coming out on Monday! i'm excited to see some full servers :)

    and OMG this game is SO ADDICTIVE! lol

    ReplyDelete
  34. Cheers man!, I think im signed up to the beta, ive entered my email address to the site about 20 times but I've never recieved an email from you:(

    ReplyDelete
  35. @deevinestylez

    We will research your account specifically. We have had sporadic reports of people dropping in to some form of negative rating that refuses to get updated, and your account might be one of those. If so I expect us to fix that first part of next week (if we can confirm the issue).

    ReplyDelete
  36. Disseminate, if you're going to let a little thing like biology stop you, I QUESTION YOUR LEVEL OF COMMITMENT.

    ReplyDelete
  37. @Patrick

    Really sorry about the sudden maintenance. The expectation had been that we were not going to have affect current missions, but had to change last minute due to a dependency. We hope never to have that issue happen again.

    ReplyDelete
  38. I think G1 should release early and give us a nice happy surprise :). The 18th was disappointing to many, please don't let us down again.

    ReplyDelete
  39. You guys are awesome at G1, thanks Bjorn :)

    ReplyDelete
  40. hi i'm french , i see in you post , you talk this secret ?? , possible send me a beta key for this weekend ^^

    ReplyDelete
  41. Bjorn, G1, guys, I urge you to reconsider. I know everyone wants to get into the game as quickly as possible, but with the matchmaking system as it is, Monday will go a little something like this:

    14:00 UK: OB Starts, 1000's of players join.

    18:00 UK: Those same players have spent the past 4 hours getting mission after endless mission opposed by Gold TL 10's with 3-slotted weapons and not budged the tiniest bit in their own threat level.

    19:00 UK: Those 1000's of players quit.

    20:00 UK: APB closes its doors for the second time in its history.

    Seriously guys, matchmaking is game-breaking as it is right now. I'm tellin' ya, opening up to the public before fixing that is going to be *CATASTROPHIC* - mark my words... =(

    Not that I'm a winger. Overall you guys are doing a good job and heading in the right direction. But ready for OB? Not by a long shot. You really need to hold off for another couple of weeks at the least, preferably even a month. The game is just not ready for this, so please re-consider this poor decision.

    ReplyDelete
  42. @Seneca Alot of people were let down yes but the bugs and crashes were things that needed to be fixed right away if they would have released this to open beta with that server disconnect issue for instance everyone woulda uninstalled this game and would have had horrible reviews its such a well thought out game i was always hoping to get a game that was like gta but more graphically inclined

    ReplyDelete
  43. @Bjorn - YES! But if you delay it any further, you will be responsible for the mass suicides that will take place around the world lol

    I will be on a bussiness trip during the weekend and you just made me mad cause I didn't take my gaming laptop with me...What if I get access to CB without even knowing it ARRRGHH@$£>½$_!!1

    On a side note: Thx for notifying the community and actually reading the comments and replying to them! I know it's not a easy job to be the "face" of the dev team when there are alot of spoiled brats running around spitting on that face. So I'm gratefull for your work.

    Cheers!

    ReplyDelete
  44. i must agree, im still Stuck at TL1..... and the match making is bottom line... horrible :(

    and yes, Bjorn and Co. are doing amazing, but matchmaking needs fixing...still.

    ReplyDelete
  45. There are a lot of people who are experiencing the lvl 1 bronze issue. Not me personally, but it seems to be players who use stock weapons without any mods. My buddy was stuck at level 1 until he bought a modded weapon and hit someone once with it. After the mission was over he leveled up to lvl 5.

    ReplyDelete
  46. oh wow, i just bought a mod'd weapon JUST before server crash AfroSamurai, interesting ill have to test this out. im still stuck at Bronze TL1.

    ReplyDelete
  47. sorry not server crash, server maintenance.

    ReplyDelete
  48. So... What about the hackers? You are doing something about that right?

    ReplyDelete
  49. Exactly, not everyone wants to use modded weapons. So its not exactly fair right now.

    ReplyDelete
  50. Wes, I've killed rank 130+ players with the stock star. It doesn't matter whether or not you want to use modded weapons, I'm just saying there may be a workaround if that issue is solved by using a modded weapon. Anything to break out of the TL1 issue, if a player like me was stuck at TL1... players would ragequit this game FAST.

    ReplyDelete
  51. Hy, all every1 know when the servers are online again? :P

    ReplyDelete
  52. Wow AfroAmurai, you may well be onto something there:

    I went ages yesterday and this afternoon not budging, even though my KDR was 1.0ish, I was winning 50/50 missions despite being outnumbered, out gunned and out-threat-leveled, then a few hours ago I bought the Scoped NTEK from Armas, got a kill and *BAM*, Silver 1. I didn't connect the two events until you said just now.

    Bjorn, any chance of checking that out as a possible lead on the issue? If it's that simple then take back what I said (partially anyway - still don't get how the system allows what it thinks are low-skilled players to go up against what it thinks are high skilled ones like that so that part of it still needs addressing)

    But yeh, that does explain a lot, nice one AfroSamurai =)

    ReplyDelete
  53. AWESOME DUDE, I LOVE YOU!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! PLEASE LETS HOPE THIS IS THE LAST WAIT WE BIN BEGGIN FOR....!!!!

    ReplyDelete
  54. im getting error code 8 when i try to log in, somethings up with the server or is it just me?

    ReplyDelete
  55. scroll up and read =P .... Bjorn said one hr roughly, he will post.

    QFC
    ""Bjorn / TechMech said...

    This maintenance should last a little over 1 hour. I will post here when it's all back.""

    ReplyDelete
  56. I think problems with ranking up and bots and the whole pool of problems will become much more appearent when Open Beta hits and should be fixed then so just hold in there XD.

    ReplyDelete
  57. Yep, i bought the Scoped N Tec just before servers dropped 20 mins ago. eager to run a mission and get the hell out of TL1 lol

    ReplyDelete
  58. How exactly do we "register an interest?" Does that mean people who registered and enter an email into the newsletter thingamabob?

    ReplyDelete
  59. Contrary to what Starblaiz has said.. I lose alot of matches (I play enforcer) and while it is frustrating I still have been having a blast in CB. Losing is part of playing a game, if you won every single match the game would get boring after awhile right?

    If people are gonna quit after some losses then they are whiny, self entitled brats whom I really don't want to play with in the first place. So if the brats quit I consider it a win-win situation.

  60. rofl @ hit counter as ppl refresh to see if its online... now thats dedication, Long live APB!

  61. Great news. Thanks for the update.

  62. yeah yeah did see it ,something bjorn did miss to have in the post .
    and that i can liv whit ,im back behinde G1 ....for now :P

  63. @Matt, when the game gets stressful, i like to kick on the radio... and cruise!

    ReplyDelete
  64. I might have to agree with the concerns about matchmaking.

    Either it just appears broken due to people that are close to your level are currently busy, or it likes to match you against people way higher or lower than your level.

    Facing people that are a few step higher than you makes you feel that you suck at the game. I've been stuck at bronze1 since this change. I know I'm not awesome, but still..

    If it cannot be exploited, could we have some detailed information about how matchmaking currently works? That, or please schedule some time to discuss it internally.

    ReplyDelete
  65. If OB comes in 23 may and with no fix.. no much making fix, no threat lvl fix, and high lvl play with low lvl.. all new players will be disappointed.. for sure!!!!

    P.S. and the big problem Hacking system no fixed... they coming and coming ... who don't hack they started hacking because of unfair play... :( not good work,...

    ReplyDelete
  66. so we the OB players will keep weiting? and the CB player can keep playing? i dont think so the cumopnay do smart move now by open the agme for evry one. why the game server is only half or less now form waht is going to be so if the cumpny want to hadle the real probelm is only after the OB. i think ppl watnt to fell bug more then not playing at all

    ReplyDelete
  67. I've been using the preset 2 slotter sniper rifle, and I am stuck at threat level 1 bronze. So it can't be stock weapons, unless preset mod weapons are included in this theory. This should be priority IMO before releasing Open Beta. I know if people come into game and aren't gaining in threat they will probably quit. It's just aggravating though that I have to re-do a day full of missions to get my threat level up to what it already SHOULD BE (When it gets fixed).

    ReplyDelete
  68. I LOVE YOU GUYS I AM NO LONELY ANY MOAR :) :) :)

    ReplyDelete
  69. Awesome. :) Now I'll be able to play this game with my brother, and that will be real teamwork. :)

    Thanks again for bringing back APB into life G1. This game is awesome, now I get used to the game, and I earn more nowadays in APB. Good work. :)

    ReplyDelete
  70. why so fast OB? no general fixes and fast OB? need money fast? :)

    ReplyDelete
  71. Thank you, Bjorn! If you want i'd let you do anything you want with me.... ANYTHING

    ReplyDelete
  75. And not it possible that this will happen on May 23 I will be able to play. But to live up to this point seems to be May 21 End of the World: '(

    ReplyDelete
  76. It will be interesting to see all the raging going on in diff languages and broken english when the game goes live and noobs are gettin capped like they just got randomly dropped off in the middle of Compton, Los Angeles from a recent panel van kidnapping, lmao. i cant wait for Mon.

    ReplyDelete
  77. Threat works just fine, There's a post that tells you about it a month ago. You can actually go into Negative threat, so Try not to lose, such as if I lost 5 battles from threat level 1, I would need to win another person/group of 6+ threat to gain threat. Its work's just fine.

    ReplyDelete
  78. Uhm well most off the times Games cost alot off money you think bjorn works for free offcourse they need money (server hosting cost's payrolling)
    Im sure they have somekinda budget.

    ReplyDelete
  79. Bjorn / TechMech , How many in Moscow time it will be already come into play?

    ReplyDelete
  80. o and in my oppinion the game runs just fine Needs some tweaking do!

    ReplyDelete
  81. oh please that end of world at may 21 is a stunt enjoy your weekend and dont forget that in other parts of the world it is the 21th

    ReplyDelete
  82. LMAO@ Sunny.. May 21st isn't the end of the world, the prediction was that May 21st was rapture day. When god comes to earth, and picks up all the "chosen" ones. Then October 21st was suppose to be the end of the world. Which I find to be a load of crap altogether. It's just like the millennium, and 2012. Don't believe everything that is said to you. Also, in the bible it says god is the only one who knows the day when all of this will happen, not even his angels know.

    ReplyDelete
  85. @Matt: I completely agree that loosing is part of the game, and there is certainly no harm in that. I've had my fair share of losses too, and when it's a fair loss, I enjoy it.

    What's not fun for even the most devoted of S&M fanatics is entering a fight and knowing you can't physically win. That might sound defeatist, but what can 4 bronze 1, R30 newbies with stock STAR's do against 4 Gold 3's sporting 3-slotted NTEKs, an NHVR and a freaking OSMAW? (Yes before you ask, I did go up against *THAT* team a total of 3 times in a row earlier and we got totally annihilated every time... incidentally that's what prompted me to grab the Scoped NTEK =P )

    We had literally nothing to work with, not even superior numbers. Where's the fun in entering a battle knowing you have 0% chance of being physically able to win it?

    And just to clarify - when I said "50/50" earlier, I meant "50%", not "50 out of 50". Just thought I should clear that up =P

  90. ~I fully agree with the posters saying ~OB isnt ready, I know you think it is, but, its really not. please trust your CB testers.

    Ive been gong from TL 1-10 bronze all night, facing people i either ROLLED. (and they couldnt call backup) or people who were GOLD 5+ and I couldnt call backup...

    Ive been here since RTW, the shooting part isnt flawless, but its fun, the driving the same, the customisation is second to none. but for me. the RTW matchmaking was awful. this new system might turn out great. but right now? its bad. and it will NOT help you retain customers. it simply wont.

    ReplyDelete
  91. Just to add, you are doing a great job, and I fully support G1. It is in now way a remark on your quality etc, Its simply the truth. I say it to help, not to 'flame' or troll etc..

    ReplyDelete
  92. Hi Bjorn,

    Thanks for communicating all of these rapid changes. Your posts are much appreciated.

    If you'd like, please take a look at GamersFirst Support Incident #110519-000770. Don't worry it's nothing bad. Actually I hope it helps.

    Thank you.

    ReplyDelete
  93. Yeah rocket launcher and Grenade really need to be removed or made exspensive so that its not usable the whole time its just lame and it turns the game in somekinda bf1942 game :P

    ReplyDelete
  94. Track, the threat level doesn't work for some people. Their is a bug, and several people's accounts are bugged. If I can play an entire day of game play, and have mission streak wins, top kills or 2nd top kills on my team, and have every teammate of mine gain in threat level besides me it's quite apparent that there is an issue. I did not gain or lose threat all day. I probably lost 10 missions out of the 60 I did today. Tell me how I am still at level 1 bronze threat rating if the threat system isn't broken? How did my teammate who had less kills than I did in majority of our missions gain 10 threat levels?

    ReplyDelete
  95. @Bjorn and G1

    Thanks for all your hard work. I greatly appreciate it.

    @complaints above
    This is a beta, you are a tester and match making has it's work around. I think you feel G1 has made some personal obligation to you that there won't be bumps in the road. They have not.

    ReplyDelete
  96. And at the moment BSA works? Who could give an Account to run, I still have never played it: '(

    ReplyDelete
  97. Alright - the game is back from maintenance, but it will be another little while before the site returns (so no purchases until the maintenance of the site is over). But you will be able to play again momentarily.

    Also - we went to look up some of the rating questions, and it appears the current ratings are correct - BUT - it DOES take a LONG TIME before the system has narrowed down the uncertainty (like 20+ matches) - so we will be looking in to how to speed up the initial learning process of the system.

    ReplyDelete
  98. 16 mins till rapture!!!!!..... Wil God work in a certain timezone? I bet its US... everything is always USA

    ReplyDelete
  99. @deevinestylez If your group has a higher threat level then the other group, you will not gain threat level. And I had a problume getting out of threat level 1 bronze untill 1 won a group with threat level 50+ in a 1vs4 match with a k/d rate of 8/1. Like i said read the post about threat level, it explains how to gain and lose.

    ReplyDelete
  100. @deevinestylez

    Oh - and in addition to what I said above, if you BEAT players whose rating is uncertain, then YOUR rating move is ALSO uncertain, and it takes EVEN LONGER before you get started getting "rated up"

    But - we will be looking at this to see if we can shorten the system learning.

    And buying custom weapons does NOT make things work faster :) Playing more matches however does.

    ReplyDelete
  101. Bjorn , Excuse me for asking, but closed at this time the test is working right now? can follow any responses you give me access to the test on Close at 1:00 or 5? If possible of course
    My Email sto94@hotmail.kom, Thanks for rane

    ReplyDelete
  102. yay, an OB date and more CB keys.

    ReplyDelete
  103. I played for 8 hours.........lol Since 7am this morning. I know I did more than 20 missions. Is it learning my kill ratio, and win ratio to come up with a threat level that is suitable for my skill level? I don't understand the "system learning", especially if it's just gonna bump me out of threat level 1 bronze..if it's not actually measuring my skill in the game. If it is measuring the skill I am at then okay I understand why it would need that amount of missions to determine the accurate rating level.

    ReplyDelete
  104. sorry my email sto94@hotmail.com

    ReplyDelete
  105. @Bjorn: Just an idea based on a trick I've used myself at work a few times:

    Our equipment makes fairly extensive use of ADC converter lines, which are notorious for floating / jittering about a bit. To get around this, we take the average over several readings, but this leads to a substantial delay when starting our units up as the averaging array populates itself. To get around this we simply populate the array with the very first result so it starts off in the right ballpark at least and a number can be reported back straight away. From there we just fill it up with real results and the value rapidly hones in on it's true value as a result.

    Maybe you guys could do something similar here with the TL calculations - take say the first 5 missions of a new character and use that data to populate the rest of the "array" (or whatever kind of structure you use for it). After that populate it with real results so it can hone in more accurately.

    Seems like a simple and elegant solution to me at least. Just a thought =)

    I suppose I'll have to bite the bullet(in) and just get on with my life.

  114. Oh man, I hope I get into the Beta this weekend. I have been waiting for this to go free since I heard about it long time ago. I mean, I Beta tested Battlefield: Play4Free and I'm testing Firefall. But neither of them can stack up to this game. GAWD I can't wait for it to get into OB.

    Good luck with fixing the problems within the game, I hope they are an easy fix and don't give you too much trouble.

  116. So, any born again Christians with a closed beta account want to bequeath it to me? I'm an atheist and a sinner and most definitely will not be raptured away with you and would enjoy spending the last of my hedonistic days playing this game and i am sure your charitable contribution will guarantee your own personal rapture.

  119. Since yesterday I have not been able to log back in to the closed beta. What's up? I keep getting a 10010 log in error. I can log in to GF, just not the closed beta any longer.

  120. LOL neume thank you for making the game aweful for players who enjoy it. Im almost finished the game and the closer i get the more i realize you guys making hardcore gaming unfevorable

    thank you for the downsides idea, now you screwed the only audience that would of stuck with apb and gave you money

    im just gonna keep screwing potential customers and making them quit (and trust me i cost you customers, 7000kills and a % wont touch the game again) just out of spite

    you guys gave mod access to a bunch of cheaters, charged us for premium while the game is down 20% of the time, and have the worst developer ideas (yay "fixing" everything first before matchmaking), and made it so people would not want to farm for endgame

    after while people will quit cause the ammount of work dosent match the rewards.

    for a progression based game, the time and efford is not rewarded. the carrot is not there

  121. Reading the blog comments is like watching a lame soap opera. theres some kind of bad news or misinformation and everybody flips shit and its "FUCK YOU" "IM HIDING IN A CORNER BECAUSE IM 100% LONELY" "GASP I THOUGHT WE HAD SOMETHING SPECIAL I NEVER WANT TO SEE YOU AGAIN" or "I HATE YOU ALL HANG FROM A CROSS"
    and then we hear good news, in this instance open beta having a set date, and its "I LOVE YOU" "IM LEAVING MY GIRLFRIEND" "LETS GET MARRIED"

    i really think you guys should miss the OB deadline just to keep this interesting it makes for a really good read.

    On another note, EXCELLENT job working out that disconnect bug.

    ReplyDelete
  122. @dreamss you don't have any idea what a beta is do you? And you think you're 'screwing customers' how? In fact your whole post is redundant

    I think the game is coming along great, obviously still some work needs to be done but I like the way the game plays. Love the physics engine, graphics are great, love the ability to customize everything and import your own music.

    Just hope the developers don't get discouraged with people with no idea about anything it takes to code and program a video game making stupid unconstructive comments

    if i have to deal with this many cheaters why stay?
    you have far more cheaters then you think...

  124. @Bjorn u r proberly aware of this already but i want ask about the age thing that has banned players even when they are over the age of 18, my friend is from australia so the legal age to play is 18, however i hear that the banning is caused by the g1 account and the closed beta account ages not matching up this obviously comes to the conclusion that this player is usuing a fake age and must be under age and bans them. im fine with this really but there r still ppl in game that are 12 year olds and the probelm is that my friend is actually 18. the question i wanna ask is what is going to happen to these accounts that have been banned? will certain players get there accounts back? or are they wiped completely from the system or locked or something.

    ReplyDelete
  125. @ Bjorn

    quick question
    will we be seeing the new matchmaking system / rating based districts as part of the open beta launch?

    as it is now i think alot of people would go all "OMGFTWBBQ THEYS LIEK 50 LVLS HI'ER THAN ME AND THERES 3 OF THEM" (not quite that bad but you get the idea)

    if not (and i know im gonna get lynched for saying this) i'd actually suggest delaying open beta untill all that has been added

    closed beta is one thing we all more or less knew that we were signing up for frustration and tons of stuff in need of fixing - but open beta (while still a beta) will have alot more people expecting things to be like a finished game

  130. For people that say about threat lvl and such i will tell you an accident i have.I was on 18 win streak and my threat was lvling up ok.After a win in 1vs1 match with 2-0 score it wrote to my that my threat lvl went down.I was like omg wtf happens here but i watch the icon of threat and it was actually the one that is highter not the lower one.What im saying is it wrote went down but it went up.And after a few wins went to the next lvl.Theres always 5% possibility of me reading wrong thought i dont think so.

    BTW 18 win streak and from silver 6 i went gold 1 is that ok???

  134. I just know something better can be done with matchmaking. I play for 2 hours every day and I keep losing by people with mods on a constant basis. I try different tactics, different weapons to no avail. Im stuck at level 1 bronze. Its really frustrating and I wish some pureskill servers were implemented.

  136. Those people would have most likely beat you without mods. Matchmaking is actually suppose to get you to win 50% and lose 50% of the time. It is not the mods that stop you from winning.

    Remember a lot of people put many hours into this game to get good at it, but once people reach there true TL and matchmaking gets better than you should be better off.

  140. Ah, that's some good shit! When do you expect to release the patch? Because when I patch my game, then it's in the morning next day, because the patch first comes at 12 in the night.

  143. Here is NOT a prediction here id history.....

    Bot/Hack users start farming players...
    Players tired of getting farmed switch servers....
    Server with the bot/hack users empty quickly, so they switch servers...
    Players get tired of being farmed on every server they switch too so they stop playing...
    Game looses people, game gets bad rep, game dies...

    This happened on the originalo APB... and it was happening again last night.

    So again, when is the ban, right now only two of the 14 people I talked into getting into the CB are still testing, the rest quit until the problem is resolved....

    Think getting a mission agenst 3 ppl is bad (me agenst 3), I was a 4silver at the start of the day, kept getting dispatched aganst 2 bots and 1 player so I switched servers as the enf pop dropped and evetone left for a new server.. Rince and repeat after 4 hours and 5 servers and I too quit playing as I was now a bronze 4.

    The problem was that the people on the team stopped playing an soon there was no one left to team with.. I have seen the before and it is not a good omen for the game

  149. the game is not bad, fun to play in this group but very unbalanced rookies doing the same missions that players already old and esperientes, much to the disadvantage of the direction the car is still bad times at the graphics you do not have the freedom to increase or decrease something ... fun, but try to give a knack in this balance, as are missions repeat to criminals is much easier, criminals are 5 for each one enforces. thanks

  155. I don't see why people are so anxious, it's a shit game after you play it for 3 hours and realize the matchmaking system to so messed up that you can't level and will just keep loosing to people with better guns.

    ReplyDelete
  156. Do you really want to release open beta on May 23th? The matchmaking system had put 2 max threat enforcers against 4 low skill criminals. I don't have to say that neither of the crims were able to just shoot at them. The matchmaking system is completely broken. First I've managed to make up to bronze threat level 5, and then the lot losing decreased my threat level to 3. I mean WTF??? This system always (well mostly) puts pro enforcers against beginner or low-skill criminals. I Can't even win 3 missions in a row. I always lose missions. I'm very disappointed. Fix it. :(:(:(

  168. downloading this game from G1live is absolutely horrific with the speed, it goes anywhere from 0KB to at max 41KB, and i had this downloading yest for 3 hours with not 1% downloaded. DONT blame my internet speed, i am able to download most things in good timing, if i was going to download a game from steam at 5gb it would take me only a few hours. if i was to suceed at downloading APB it would take me 2 weeks? WTF?
