#3324823 Overkill - official statement ples?

APB in my opinion is a shambles at the moment, the server cannot actually sustain the current population cap, in fact I dare say it cant even take 90% load without showing noticeable side effects. To me this is a serious issue, game-play itself is seriously hindered when compared to performance in say one of the fight club districts with just over half the population; even then there are still some questionable issues. As people have mentioned shots miss, guns don't fire, the server or software or a combination of the both just cannot take the load bore upon it by the game.

This is down to a multitude of things, but I personally stopped playing the game because of it. I really enjoy the concept and content within but at this point the entire thing is falling apart within itself like a black hole. It doesn't take an expert to realise these things (but for the reference I'm a game developer). It really saddens me to be perfectly honest and if something is not done about it, it'll fall apart from the inside out. That said, I understand from their perspective how hard it would be to change what needs to be changed. That's why I quit, as far as I'm concerned this is a racing horse with a broken ankle that needs quietly put down or some serious monetary investment to fix what needs fixed. Until then i applaud those who are willing to invest money into the armas to keep it going.


To be honest i dare say they don't have the funds to upgrade all servers, I don't think its a case of testing...


TL;DR

Complete speculation and opinion as to the games decline and future without serious investment and improvement upon hardware and software. Take with pinch of salt and not as gospel ;)
