#4496959 APB Tournament

Posted by thelinux on 31 August 2017 - 10:21 AM

I wish there was a separate gamemode that follows those rules. The game would instantly become so much more enjoyable than it is now.

 

To be honest, I fear it might be difficult this way to properly enforce those rules (especially if there are a lot of participants) and I sincerely hope there won't be too many disqualifications. Good luck and have fun everyone!

Appreciate the elaborate posts, Rapid! Some neat stuff you got there. Too bad your privileges are no longer existent, cheers for the effort anyhow.

 

Also, that thing with VISION Recordings really sucks. I've heard of many similar incidents and I've even had labels/companies simply lying to me about a song being free to use and then filing a copyright claim once the video was up.

Had my fingers crossed for some noclip footage from a cam account .. would have been too good. Still, nice work!  :)  




#4492117 Its not tiggs fault

Posted by thelinux on 31 July 2017 - 09:54 AM

Firstly, it's not really been a month as far as I know, but by no means I want to defend G1 in any way even if this might sound like it.

 

Secondly, I've always been saying Tiggs is certainly doing a good job considering her range of tasks, her options or the extent of insight she was granted.

 

However, isn't it sort of logical that she's the one who is blamed the most? Apart from a few exceptions, she is pretty much the community's only point of contact with the people who are working on this game. Obviously, to society it never matters who actually bears the blame, simply, the only visible face is scapegoated. And Tiggs sure as hell knows that - which is why there's no need to start threads and protect her nor to blame others for blaming her. If she couldn't deal with it, she wouldn't be / have been our community manager.




#4490835 Anyone know of any games to play?

Posted by thelinux on 23 July 2017 - 01:41 AM

F2P: Planetside 2 is pretty neat.

 

Other than that, I'm personally really enjoying Wildlands at the moment.




#4473657 Rare collectors piece OCSP Joker

Posted by thelinux on 23 April 2017 - 04:50 AM

Afaik it's the rarest drop of the OCSP variants, in addition its tagger is especially unique as it has a writing in it.




#4460655 Who here mains male characters?

Posted by thelinux on 04 March 2017 - 04:40 AM

I have two r255 characters, one of them male and the other one female. Honestly, if I had to choose, I'd also prefer the female model since its movement just feels more agile and less ..blundering if that makes sense?

 

I'm also attracted to females irl but I don't appreciate people running around with tangas or whatever, almost every piece of skin on my char is covered.

#4439450 If APB were to shut down in 2017, how would you feel about it?

Posted by thelinux on 14 December 2016 - 05:11 AM

Despite not really playing APB anymore and despite there being no doubt that this game has been very frustrating at times, it would still be my most played game, maybe even my fav game, and I'd still look back at the APB-times as good times, or as a unique experience after all. 




#4435884 And you still didnt nerf the yukon

Posted by thelinux on 01 December 2016 - 05:07 AM

Its ttk is quite short indeed, however its niche is just as small. It really is only that effective when running in and literally hugging everyone (pretty much at a max of only 1 person per mag). 

 

Personally, I don't think a simple nerf is the correct option, but I'd still suggest a change. I'd like it to be a little more versatile, due to the following reasons:

1. The burst-fire-mode in mms has close to zero use right now, while that's a big part of its uniqueness imo.

2. There are too many secondaries which are meant to be alternatives, but are just worse. Because the way the Yukon is now, all it does is make any UL (or arguably even NFA/PDW) variant look ridiculous.

 

I'd like both modes (full-auto and burst-mode) to be at least sort of equally effective, since that is actually the unique part of the weapon as we've never had that before. Such being the case, it could actually be an alternative to both the UL/NFA/PDW and the RFP.




#4416504 n-tec alternative

Posted by thelinux on 02 October 2016 - 01:46 AM

The N-Tec 5 is nowhere near to being trash, imo. Of course it used to be better, but it's still ridiculously easy to use and really rewarding. It's just a straight mvp ticket when I use it in baylan.




#4404286 HitchHiker or Jersey Devil?

Posted by thelinux on 08 September 2016 - 07:59 AM

In my view, the Jersey Devil is the best variant of the UL series while all of its variants are pretty much a straight upgrade to the NFA/PDW, and the Yukon does the job better than all of those together.




#4403186 What's the most hilarious bug you've encountered?

This one looks quite funny

#4394876 Introducing APBHouse.com

Posted by thelinux on 19 August 2016 - 01:21 PM

Very good idea.

 

I personally think the layout/structure could use some elaboration. Especially regarding the weapon section, I guess the purpose is providing what consumers are looking for as promptly as possible, super stylish/modern layout isn't quite top priority here and noone should have to scroll through literally everything. - I'd personally rather keep it clean and simple (apbdb might look "old" but works very well for this part).

It would be great if you could come up with a balanced mixture between a stylish, attractive aura (news/tips&tricks page -> new players?) as well as a plain and modest interface (weapons, stats etc.).

 

As for tips 'n tricks, 'thoughts' on weapons etc., a team of experienced players is indeed a necessity, I sincerely hope you'll get decent support on this. Not sure if I'm eligible for this really, but I might be able to add some bits and bobs, just drop me a msg and I'll give my best.




#4387981 Colby M-1922 needs a buff

Posted by thelinux on 06 August 2016 - 04:49 AM

No, the ATAC needs a nerf.
