Pearlescent paint bug patch today, and introducing the TMC.

Alert: Emergency patch v.91 today. Estimated to be released at 1:00pm PST / 21:00 BST / 22:00 CEST. In patch 90 a bug was introduced when customized items with Pearlescent paint appears in very crowded areas, causing a GPF crash. We are patching to fix this asap.

More specifically it's the type of bug that can only be tracked down with 100 live players (a crowd) and a full district where people have a great variety of different items (given the trillions of combinations of items players create). Even a static load test has a hard time catching this particular issue (and required some creative load testing for the development team just to reproduce the issue).

But - to catch these issues more reliably in the future, the next step is the launch of our public test world and the TMC (our Test Monkey Crew).

We will start taking applications for how to participate in the TMC after the E3 show is over on Monday the 13th of June, and Neume will send out more details on how it will work (and how you apply). Some of you will literally be asked to participate (since we can "see" what you have been doing in the game), and for some slots we will simply take applications.

(I am also working on a bigger blog post right now about our upcoming roadmap, so stay tuned)

-------------

update: June 6 - Scratch the additional blog post with info. Instead we'll convert (and condense) our formal "Roadmap" page instead and make it public for everyone to read. That way you will get far more details about what's going on in the game for both the next few weeks, as well as for the next several months than what you'd get from the blog posts (and commentary).

Also - it's still Beta. For 80% of players it's in fact very close to production quality and an amazingly great game to play. For some however it is not at that level for various reasons (hardware compatibility, latency to their ISP or routing issues, queues, SLI comparability etc.). And - yes - it's a commercialized beta, since part of this open beta is to test what items actually sell and for how much. Wouldn't be much of a test if we didn't do it "for reals." So - please hold any additional commentary until we release the roadmap.

  3. Wow Shadow you are first!
    Kiddie!!!

    Thank you for the patch.
    And please bring the crash report server online!

  4. And what about massive crashes with "General Protection Fault" report? People can't pass full mission without crashing of half or more players.

    ReplyDelete
  5. Yes, i agree with ST1m! Fix the crashes!

    ReplyDelete
  6. Hey, ST1m. Read the post.

    '>In patch 90 a bug was introduced when customized items with Pearlescent paint appears in very crowded areas, causing a GPF crash.< We are patching to fix this asap.'

  8. How about you roll back to the previous version (88 or 89) till you upload the new one (91)?

    Also (I know you re gonna artfully dodge this but I ain't backing off) How about you fix the constant lag that's been hammering us (200+) at all times the last 3 days?

    And finally (I know you re gonna do the politician move on this, but hell! I ain't gonna shut up), how about you go on another banhammer round cause it's starting to crawl with cheaters again? 1 out 3 matches contains at least 1 cheater. And before you think "oh, another noob" as those cheaters like to yapper (in order to disorient you) lemme inform you this:
    I'm not the best player but i am surelly above average. I am actually between Gold1 & Gold2 with my forcer, while my criminal is Gold7. So what's it? Do I suck? Cause in this case your precious work of all this time (the new threat system) sucks as well.

  9. So waiting another 3 hours for patch...
    That was nervous being crashed on missions since v90 patch was released...

  10. People really need to start reading and understanding what was written before posting.

    ReplyDelete
  11. ffs, the two times iv gotten opposition, iv crashed -.-

    ReplyDelete
  12. YEAH I rather test this ahead of time, this GPF crash sucks ass :(

    I just dont think you guys are gonna like me as TMC, I actually want to get stuff fixed :p

    btw you guys ever notice the friends list is buggy and you have to remove/readd friends for them to apear as online?

    ReplyDelete
  13. Hey.. what a patch is this?..
    Disconnect 2 times/10 min.
    And other players've got same problem.

    Wating for next one)

    ReplyDelete
  14. Ugh, is the patch live yet? Cause I just downloaded a 61mb patch before playing.

    Anyways, this is the worst patch for me yet. GPF every 10 minutes doing regular things, really has made this game unplayable. Funny thing is, until today I have never gotten a GPF. Roll back....

    Hello , i just want to ask you what is going on with "high-ms: issue in EUobeya. The problem with firewall is fixed ? Are you going to work with more providers(as you said in previus update in blog)? Then another question long time agor before open beta you were talking about one a lot promissing fiber-network which g1 owns , are servers moved in this network so far ? Generaly whats your next move against high latency ?
    THanks!

    ReplyDelete
  16. Greaaaaat patch! Now I get booted off the game randomly, never had the problem before, great job!

    ReplyDelete
  17. Any word on when you guys are going to fix the issue with the ATI Crossfire making hollow people or glowing. So far the only solution is either turn of the Crossfire which sucks or rename the APB.exe to either UT3.exe or crysis.exe which makes the game a bit unstable

    ReplyDelete
  18. Read the post guys, the patch last night introduced the General Protection Fault crash that is affecting you.

    "In patch 90 a bug was introduced when customized items with Pearlescent paint appears in very crowded areas, causing a GPF crash."

    They now know what causes it and a fix is in the works.



    Being a beta tester is about finding bugs, re-producing bugs and telling the developer about said bugs. Not complaining and whining that you're not getting to play or that you're not enjoying a game that has been given to you for free.

  19. @kyle Sylvester ATI and Nvidia need to create the drivers bjorn said a few blogs ago they trying to get the drivers implemented nothing GamersFirst can do

    ReplyDelete
  20. sorry but this "patch" is horrible, i frozen out in the last hour 5 times. Funny thing from the 5 crash reports 4 is frozen out too...

    ReplyDelete
  21. Its interesting to me how people have a hard time understanding what a patch is. The game disconnected you because they are deploying a patch hotfix. Once they are done doing so, the issues people were having before about crashes that they stated above should be corrected.

    ReplyDelete
  22. @ bjorn

    I know you guys are slammed, but any word about the solution for the constant 1 vs. 3-4 when you're gold threat?

    quite a few people are making new characters just to escape this or even exploit this. There are a grip of threads on the forums complaining about this. There are a couple that are ok with it but the majority are frustrated at best.

    Any news on this would be welcome. It has really become an issue.

    ReplyDelete
  23. The only crash I've gotten in this game is running out of memory. Which is odd because ill usually have a gig left when APB hits its constrained max for 32 bit -.-

    ReplyDelete
  24. I wanne be a monkey xD
    sounds cool :P

    And when are you guys going to release the Car parts., i have my criminal and my enforcer on max rating now and all i want is the car parts now :(

    ReplyDelete
  25. wow you already have a whole plan set out? sounds like you did a bad patch intentionally so that your new ideas will be accepted with more applause *shifty eyes*

    ReplyDelete
  26. Oh my God, sadly I have a perlescent car, and I've had GPF errors flowing all the times these days.
    I hope you fix it soon with this patch, I was a little worried when I couldn't log in anymore but then I learned of the incoming patch and the maintaineance you're about to do. Best of luck and keep up the good work!

  33. general protection fault is caused by the massive memory usage when the game reaches past your memory ammount the game crashes i restart my game every time when it reaches 3 gigs

    ReplyDelete
  34. Thanks for the update, look forward to the next patch. Incidentally I didn't crash once this patch, just my mates...

    Keep up the good work and to the whiners - remember this is a BETA game and will therefore have some teething problems...

    ReplyDelete
  35. Whats the reason for the game shutting itself down at 2 gigs of memory usage on 32 bit D:?

  36. "general protection fault is caused by the massive memory usage when the game reaches past your memory ammount the game crashes i restart my game every time when it reaches 3 gigs "

    General Protection Fault is what it is, general. This can be caused by a multitude of things.

  50. You people need to STFU with your whining srsly. And to the people complaining about cheaters, it's not about you being good or bad, it's about you not having a clue of how cheating looks like. A lot of people hackuse every single time they die. And to be frank, since 1.5 came out I ran into ONE (yes 1) group of players I could honestly say were 100% cheating.

  52. hey, your lag just got 80% WORSE with your recent updates.... Fix your memory leaks in the game. This game will go down hill really fast if you don't

    ReplyDelete
  53. yeah i'll admit im nowhere near the best, and i'm a fluent fps player, and rts, and i can honestly say i haven't met one hacker. i mean ive met some realllllyy good players and got my as handed to me, but honestly, i got owned regardless. any suspicion about hacking im sure will be cleared up in a ban or a patch, but in the meantime yelling "hacks!" makes you look like trash. grow up & qq elsewhere. maybe you just suck.

    ReplyDelete
  54. and this game demands so much ram, i was planning on waiting to upgrade my system after the summer for tes5 and battlefield3 but it seems i enjoy this so much i might do it sooner. i'll be going from 3g to 8g, hopefully that'll be enough lol

    ReplyDelete
  55. i feel the current 1vX according to your threat level is a nice help to the lesser players, but an enormus hindrance to the better ones. more-so for them even. and ive had my share of 1v3's that is just impossible. i don't believe in cutting it, but i would greatly recommend or even suggest adding like, a helping handicap. maybe a bit of improved health for the high threat; inciting more teamwork for them and at least a chance for us when we go up against impossible odds. sometimes killing 3 or 4 players and completing the objective at the same time is a bit too much. or maybe a radar indicator, improved bullet resistance or damage etc.

    ReplyDelete
  56. i think somethings broken no ones getting opposition

    ReplyDelete
  57. I have a question, Why did you guys wait till now to implement the account block for age, after most people have logged 50+ hours?

    ReplyDelete
  58. how come we pwn at EA games (battlefield series) and global agenda and suck that much in APB? Is it that we dsuck or that we dont cheat? Is it that we pwn or that none cheats cause EA and HIrez actually CARE to kick cheaters' asses???

    ReplyDelete
  59. We heard promisses that they'd fix the lag. They did fix it, now it's broken again and we hear deafening silence from the devs. They just fucking ignore us, cause now they snached our dough. No respect to our money, no respect to our time.

    We heard promisses that they 'd force the banhammer and they did. Once! Now the servers are filled with cheaters again and legit players that kick ass in other action games (whose developing studios actually care to ban cheaters CONSTANTLY) just suck in APB; more to that even the devs mock us with the glove like the cheaters do. Maybe it's them that publish the cheats through outsourcers. Prolly the reason why they dont sue the companies that alter the code of the game without authorization (or maybe they really are secretly authorized to do that).

    They promissed to fix the spawn system, and they did start doing that. Then they stopped and left it unfinished, cause aesthetic changes were more important. Yet, the spawn system has fucked up the misssions but they still deny to even ackgnowledge the issue.

    They promissed to fix the matchmaking but I still get unfair fights. Especially when I either lag or when among the 3 or 4 players I am dispatched against, one of them is "in training" but their skill is much greater than their teammates, making my matches impossible. Not to mention when someone is cheating (yes there are persons who have 100% accuracy and dont even know how to equip the mobile supply unit and change clothes).

    They promised to fix the rating stystem and they did. It worked. Only for approx. 15 days. Now, after 2 more patches to it, the system has solidified its opinion and considers us of a certaint threat level that doesnt drop no matter how many matches we lose, making our matches unfair all the damn time. And the devs still keep silent about that. And yet, they release patches for the pearlescent colors that still dont work, or redesigning the jerichos, as if the pearlescent and jerichos are more important than lag, cheats, matchmaking, spawn or threat system.

    They re just fucking mocking us. The hell with this company, I aint paying shit anymore. And dont go hide behind the lame "beta" excuse, cause when you re in a goddamn beta, you dont ask for goddamn money. And this is not my first beta, but the second worst beta I ve been into. The first was RTW's beta. And one of the reasons RTW failed (aside from trying to play it big bad assfucking megacorp), is that they failed to see the real problems and focused on aesthetic bullshit, and that they didnt listen to the users' feedback. Now G1 is following the same road. Thankfully SWTOR publish date is near, so when this game and company fails, I wont feel sad, unlike when RTW failed.

  60. Y don't ou fix the crossfire problem and the audio proplems so people like me can have proper gameplay instead of only seeing parts of the ememy or hearing parts of the game?

    ReplyDelete
  61. Three more things to the broken promisses:

    You promissed a free extra character slot for the CB testers. None given.

    You promissed a free extra character slot for those who had played the RTW live (stacking with the CB testers' one). None given.

    You promissed permanent weapons, and the only ones I see are those that cost like 40 euros on a game to which I see no future; therefore making the purchase unwise(sic).

    You promissed that old RTW players will get their cars back too (without upgrades). None given.

  62. @Rm4g3dD0v -

    -- show your work as i have never seen this statement by any G1 emp.

    You promissed permanent weapons, and the only ones I see are those that cost like 40 euros on a game to which I see no future; therefore making the purchase unwise(sic).

    -- again you don't know what your talking about .. atm you can only buy perm weapons with real money but they have stated several times that you will be able to get perm guns in game before Live. is it live yet.. no.. so relax and smoke a j.

    Sorry for that but thats it....

    ReplyDelete
  67. Hey Bjorn, any chance of a reply on the concept of buying permanent premium status, for those of us who want to support the game but truly hate the idea of subscribing to something?

    ReplyDelete
  68. maybe you're just not as good as you think you are?
    I'll say this again, in my 300 hours played since 1.5 came out, I encountered one group of players I can honestly say was cheating.

    ReplyDelete
  69. @Clive, then you simply don't open your eyes.
    I found much more guys cheating, you must simply watch how many guys snap between targets.

    and i`m dont saying this, because i lost versus them, normally multiplayercheaters are totally stupid and you can win versus them anyways, but it dont make them less cheating...

    and yeah, i know my name is cheater - i own an cheat portal, that offer only singleplayer cheats and hints, so what ? :)

    btw. Patrick is right, there arent any buyable permanent weapons for APB$, thats sad - and G1 promised, that the weapons are buyable.... i dont wanna start a discuss, that the weapons are too expensive, i only hope, that G1 is realizing, that they sell more, then the prices are more fair...

    anyways the rest of your work looks actually very good, but still i occur some problems:
    - no mini modifications unlocked, but i maxed out all contacts
    - after the last patch i wait on an full server very long for getting enemies...

  70. @ bjorn when we will get the closed beta gifts? :(

    ReplyDelete
  71. @Rm4g3dD0v

    Wow dude - take a break and maybe come back later. "Deafening silence from the devs?" you are joking right? I don't frankly know of any company that has communicated as much as we have. Ever.

    Yes we are IN FACT sending out a "thanks for participating in the Closed Beta" package to everyone who were part of the closed beta. We are holding some of the features of that pack (some special recognition in the game) for a moment while dealing with some much more pressing issues (like a service disrupting game crash).

    We are in the middle of changing our entire network infrastructure, which will improve connectivity for most players. Depending on where your ISP is located, things might improve for you as well. But it's entirely up to where your ISP and you are physically connected. Not under our control.

    And finally - this is still a Beta game. But I am very flattered that you are comparing us to the StarWars MMO. I appreciate that.

    So in short - either stick around and help make this game better, or come back in a few months when all remaining issues have been worked out. But if you decide to stick around, stop spouting crazy conspiracy theories and try to be helpful instead.

    ReplyDelete
  72. @Hannes

    We hope to have that our to everyone next week. However, one of the more interesting items we had hoped to give CB testers (special character text recognition in the game as "veteran") unfortunately is not yet in the game. But we are likely to proceed even if we cannot include that item, just to make sure it gets out there sooner than later.

    Is the issue with buildings taking ages to load for people with dual core CPUs something that you think you guys will be able to fix? Or is buying a quad core the only sollution for us?
    Thanks.

    ReplyDelete
  74. @Robin: Tbh the reason it loads slow is because your CPU is slow. In all honesty there's no real excuse to have a dual core these days unless you're talking about an Intel i5 below the 7xx series or something, in which case fair enough I guess... Still woulda been better off getting a Q6600 or something though =)

  76. What's the deal with the matchmaker? It's been broken for me and many others since Patch 90.

    This seems to be the danger of updating on Fridays, maybe you should update closer to early/mid week to prevent crippling bugs from lasting all weekend.

    ReplyDelete
  77. @Bjorn
    Wow i must say your dodging skills leveled up... Maybe you should run for president of the US.
    The world hasn't seen such a good dodger since the Rhegan days.

    BTW "deafening silence" went to the lag issue.

    But since you compare yourself to other betas, Let me tell you you re far away from the quality of communication compared to the beta of tabula rasa and it's further developnent (by Destination Games). So park your riding stick cause communication works two ways. And just communication is overrated. what good is it when feedback isn't put into action?

    For the last 3 weeks i hear people moaning about thre psawn system, he unfair 1v3 1v4 matchmaking, the cheaters, and all the "communicaion" I see is promisses over promises, tepmorary solutions that were meant to "shut us up" and after some time problems reapppeared, and some work left unfinished cause insignificant things were considered to be a priority.

    I dont give a damn if you re used to "sheep", but I'm a tough customer (with the occasional urges of the troll within).

    So you 'd better start giving straight answers. If you want to shut me up, these answers will shut me up. Not defensive stance, nor offencive stance, nor ignorance, nor dodging.

    So answer straight to each of the 5 issues on my original post (June 4, 2011 1:24 AM) and the 4 lesser issues on the follow-up post (June 4, 2011 1:50 AM), and then I 'll consider that communication. Otherwise it's just porpaganda.

    ReplyDelete
  78. @ bjorn

    "either stick around and help make this game better"
    so your idea of making the game better is to sit back and shut up, not providing feedback, and not demand value for the money you pocketed (not sure if that expression is correct) presenting it as a "closed beta priviledge" (half truth, half propaganda here).

    Let me tell you something. I sit arround cause i like this game and i wanna make it better, i spent money for it (not for the priviledges but for an incentive for G1 devs), and most importantly, i spent time on it cause i thought it's worth it. So, no! I ain't backing off and I 'm not shutting up. Since you used both my money and time, i claim the demand to have my opinion heard and have it influence the development. And FFS I ain't asking for lightsabers in action districts. I'm just asking for stuff other ppl are asking too, like fixing the lag, the matchmaker, the spawns, and the goddamn cheaters.

    ReplyDelete
  79. @Rm4g3dD0v Man ur an angry person... and a huge troll.

    ReplyDelete
  80. He's got a point though, the lag/stutter thread went 14 pages long with numerous other threads created, one dev response stating "get a new sound card" ...lol.

    when a thread goes 14 pages long, at least post and say "we are aware of the issue, thank you for the feedback we are trying to work it out.". For those of you who haven't experienced the issue, lucky you...you don't give two hoots then. But for the rest of us, it sucks.. it makes an otherwise amazing game unplayable. Bjorn just totally dodged the question, he could have simply taken the time to say "We're aware".

    Seriously I'm wondering if they're even aware of the massive spike problems this game has on all sorts of high end hardware.

    ReplyDelete
  81. @Rm4g3dD0v

    Aha!!! So you do like this game!!!

    *pokes your belly*

    That little secret would be damn hard to uncover with, you know, your constant battering of the boards with disgust, discontent, and hatred. Have you heard of the phrase constructive criticism? G1 has their hands full and is working on all of the issues you've mentioned. You can't expect miracles overnight, it's obviously a work in progress, as is any MMO on the market. Patience young one.

    And for all this talk of cheaters...I've honestly only come across maybe one or two groups of players that I SUSPECTED were up to something, and I've been playing since RTW beta days. Are you so godlike that anyone who beats you is cheating? Lose the arrogance.

    And....just so you know, there is a world outside of APB. A walk outside would do you and all the rest of us some good.

    Take care now guy, relax and enjoy life.

    Realy? Should I bend over? should I also buy the vaseline too? I dunno what your parrents raised you in, but i dont just bleep when I 'm taken to the slaughterhouse! When I see something wrong I pinpoint it and when those who should care, don't, I get vulgar! That's normal. Every human being does that.

  83. Rm4g3dD0v is maybe an angry person, that maybe can't write problems without attacking people, but he is still right.

    here are many unanswered questions:
    - date for fix of spawn system?
    - date for fix of matchmaking?
    - Highend hardware still spikes fps down since all G1 patches, when this is fixed?
    - permanent weapons: when they come as promised for APB$?
    - when are the carparts of the highend cars coming (or will there an infobox how to unlock them)?

    i don't try to demotivate developers too, but actually i really start to ask me, why im writing here, because i get around 80% the feeling, that i will be ignored...
    when you want to say you do good communications, then here is an awesome hint: answer questions...

    +1 man if they just could tell us about those dates we would leave them alone to work for it.

    But saying we will doodododododo any 1 month now we dont see any major update is ridiculous.

    Ps:I didnt log in into game now but i guess since one dev told that they are going to look for the matchmaking problem at Mondey i dont it is fixed yet.So a company that has 30K of people playing at weekend amd tell them to wait 2 days till they fix the problem they made with a patch that would fix GPF that didnt let us play at friday dont think its a company that has good communication.IF it had they would say we are going to the office to fix it now or rollback to 88 version so the 30k people be happy at the weekend.

  87. You guys tend to forget that this is still a beta no matter what you say.. things are going to get better but it will take some time.. you all need to relax.. if you don't like the game in its current state.. stop playing for a while.. come back in a few months .. maybe the issues you are having will be fixed by then... but its just dumb for people to post the way they are.

  88. @Denmeniazi - +1 man if they just could tell us about those dates we would leave them alone to work for it.

    No the community would not let them alone .. god help them if they announced dates and they were late .. people would be all emo about how they didn't hit their date.. and your saying no we wont.. the community has shown in the past they can't handle missed dates so why would they pigeonhole themselves... come on be logical.

  89. @Patrick i want to see an answer from official side, not from an user...
    and LIVE isn`t an date. Please let an dev answer, who knows about what he is talking.

    ah and one more question:
    - When are coming the "Item Drops" for premium?

    ReplyDelete
  90. @Patrick W

    Ok i can believe that the community will go wild if they miss a day but me as a person im wild with them now!!

    When after 1 month they just updated Threat system which wasnt any good at all im getting mad with them because they have a list of the items that they are going to sell for a month+++ fixed.There isnt any delay for that stuff but no news about general major updates.

  91. @PatrickW
    The "beta" excuse is the lamest excuse eversince premium account and premium items are not free anymore.
    I said it before, maybe it didnt pass thru your scull: "When you re in a goddamn beta, you dont ask for goddamn money." The moment you do that, the beta becomes commercial. More to that, time is money. And our time is our money.

    We have contribited with both money and time, and it's only natural to demand a fair trade. Is that too much for you to comprehend?

    ReplyDelete
  92. HMMM.. i guess your right.. no company could ever charge for an Alpha / Beta and make money.. thats totally not possible.

    Minecraft passed 1,000,000 purchases less than a month after reaching Beta. @ 10euros a pop x 1,000,000. But that can't be cause according to RM4G3D0V "When you re in a goddamn beta, you dont ask for goddamn money." i guess your right no one could do it.

  94. @Denmeniazi - i don't know what your talking about the new threat system is 10 times better than it used to be. The only reason it isn't working right now is cause we don't have segmented districts. So matches can be unfair ie 4v8s etc.. but i still find those 4v8's more fun than the old matches we had with the old threat system. I just think the system wont come into its own till those districts are implented.

  96. @RM4G i just don't get as mad as you.. i am willing to give G1 a chance to fix the games issues.. I love this game.. and when you love something you should be willing to have some patience. No one is forcing you to play this game.. you don't even need to pay if you don't want to .. so why are you playing this game if it makes rage so much?

  97. Player " nin " is a cheating bitch!
    When u die his Theme repeats all the time and when u die a second time it repeats twice so you hear it 2 times and more kills more times. so u need to restart the game. my teammates got the same shit and he is shooting with a joker like a fuckin oca but every bullet hits!
    please watch that guy and ban him! im not joking! got it on tape!

  98. actually the Death Theme bug is a bug i haven't seen any dev responses on in the forum but i am sure they have more important things to do atm.. like fix the matchmaking.

  99. No i remember someone that have 1 bugged theme.

    It last around 15-20 secs and when i ask him how he do it he just laught about it.

    also.. any hope for the RTW players to get their preorder cisco back? im sure its been answered but that be nice

  102. Marcel we know that the matchmaking is borked at the moment so how do your comments bring anything new to the table. why are you so hostile? i don't think this is the game for you if it makes you so mad.

  103. Im not mad but i think G1 must downpatch the game befor they have fix the problem.
    No one can play normal atm ^^

    ReplyDelete
  104. they released their patch too late in the week and i am sure they won't do that again so they dont have a weekend that servers are borked. But they said they would fix it on monday.. only 24hours to go :D

    ReplyDelete
  105. fix the match making!!!! this is the most important, if we haven't dispatch, all other thing aren't important! it's so boring in game actually.........

    ReplyDelete
  106. people people calm down, its beta still, just post the problems you find, and not all this hate.

    if you feel that G1 is going slow then play something else for now and come back later.

    they need input not hate. if you can't deal with the beta problems then why did you want to play a beta in the first place?

  107. @Rm4g3dD0v

    i have tested in a lot of beta's, this is not the first time a company started selling stuff in beta. just a fact you should know...

    no one is twisting anyone's arm to spend real money,
    if you think its to soon to spend real money then don't.

    just because others do it, doesn't mean it's reasonable. You cannot claim the "beta" argument when you charge players with real money as if it was Live. A beta is supposed to be there for testing; not for making money. So when a beta turns commercial, it's just irreasonable and irrational to claim the beta "argument".

  113. @bjorn are we going to see the roadmap today?

    How about the Matchmaking issues people are having now. Is this going to be addressed today?

    ReplyDelete
  114. so ? where is the "longer blog post" ? Days ago you said that... and still nothing... and the perm weapons are just overpriced... check out Battlefield Heroes for example. Their prices are alright and they are still making a huge amount of money.

    ReplyDelete
  115. @the shadow didn't you read the update to the blog post.. they will be giving us access to their roadmap website .. hopefully we get that today along with fixes to the matchmaking system.

    ReplyDelete
  116. Wow so many complainers here it's unreal. It's still a beta guys relax will ya?

    On that note, there have been some matchmaking issues lately where you go unopposed for sometimes 5+ missions in a full 50v50 district.

    Spawns can sometime still be crap. However, this could be related to the legacy mission system.

    Threat system is still a bit broken. A lot of my clan members seem to be stuck at a certain rank even after getting MVP on multiple missions. Others are just constantly dropping threat when they lose and never gaining when they win.

    So when will we start seeing the new missions created that will eventually replace RTW's legacy missions? The fact that many of them are 1 sided doesn't help a lot. There was one mission where enforcers had to defend inside a building with only 2 entrances. They had 2 rocket launchers, a sniper rifle, and assault rifle. Our team didn't stand a chance...

    ReplyDelete
  117. @Rm4g3dD0v

    I don't see how you can claim that being in Beta and charging money can be mutually exclusive. You CAN have both. Charging money for something does not invalidate the beta. They still need to test a lot of stuff (obviously), including how the armas marketplace works and if they need to tweak prices, etc. You are either the biggest troll on this blog, or you are very UNreasonable.

    Revoemag - post this on the forums.. in the 18page thread regarding this very issue..

    Look at it this way, if something has changed, we don't know what it is, nothing that was implemented should have impacted the matchmaking, Qwentle is currently investigating the issue and trying to work it out, we're aware of the issue so please stop panicking about it, it won't make us fix it any faster, we're doing our best...
    Also, thanks for stating the obvious there Ydiss...

    i don't see anything wrong with opening your cash shop in Open Beta, hell they need to add more in there, where are the cars and cloths, it's Open Beta i'm not going to lose anything i buy, also its f2p so that is how they fund the project.

    now why are you so hung-up on why they have opened cash shop, just play and look for bugs so they can fix them.

  123. theres a huge diffenrce between bugs and unfinished work or not even started work.

  124. @rm4g
    i don't see why this matters to you ..if you don't want to spend any money on this game you can. If you do hey your supporting the game. But G1 isn't forcing you to pay any cash.

    ReplyDelete
  125. bjorn has stated that there are different teams working on different stuff, don't you think new items is cash shop would be the easiest, and the team working on the code would have the hardest job the takes the longest to get done.

  126. @Rm4g3dD0v

    i read the blog all the time, and you have stated some good stuff, but i think the cheaters have you so pissed off your getting bent, don't let them get you that mad they love it. i use to play BF2, COD1,2,3,4, MOH and others like you, use to rank at the top of the score board, Butt in APB find it hard to kill people, i don't know if it is from imbalance or cheaters. i say look at the cheaters like this, below noob because even noobs have some skills, so low they don't even get to have a title they are just a joke.

    so lets just play and let them work on game and cheaters.

    @Bjorn

    when people have to put up with cheaters they will get so mad they get bent, when that happens you the dev team and G1 and all your hard work will get attacked. keep a heavy hand on the cheater prob.

    also i saw people in perma training even after they did missions, maybe bug maybe cheat.

    Thanks and keep up the great work.

    the whole thing with the payments in beta, came up because that little troll Patrick W, didnt want to see my point and tried to disorient the conversation from the problems i stated and the lack of dev action, to the lame excuse "this is a beta, expect problems".
    All i said is, since the beta is commercialized no, it ain't natural to expect such major problems.

    - This fag-lag is a major problem. I cannot fucking play! and I am not playing, wasting my precious premium time I payed in good faith.
    - This thing with the cheaters reached the level of cheaters/match that shitty games like crossfire and AVA have. Why don't COD or BF series dont have cheaters? Cause EA is paying people to root out cheaters and ban them asap. Why does GA have no cheats for it? Cause HIrez sat down for a month and banned every little piece of shit, and every time a cheat was updated, they countered it with a new patch within 2-3 hours. And now they turned GA f2p too.
    - The matchmaking is a very important piece of the game, and it's left unfinished. It seems that they dont allocate more people to work on issues that matter. We care for a better matchmaking 100,000 times more than we care for a few damn pearlescent colors.
    - The spawn systyem they fixed is still bugged (waterfront piers spawns, no randomity etc), but thats not the issue. the issue is that they increased the spawn timer and now this has fucked up almost all misssions. So why dont they fix the goddamn missions, or revert the goddamn timer to fit the missions and deploy the whole thing fixed instead of leaving the work unfinished.

    These atre the issues i am talking about and it's INEXCUSABLE for a beta that is commercialized. On a non-commercialized beta (in our case the closed beta) I 'd expect that.
