In Topic: This game is absolutely frustrating

Must have hit a soft spot there, eh?
I've played enough games like Dota and CS to know that APB is most definitely not as easy as you make it out to be. Why don't you go ahead and try to play against actual good players, you will just how the slightest tactical slip up will cost you a mission. The skill ceiling for APB is extremely high due to people spending multiple thousands of hours in this game, just like with any other shooter this automatically puts the skill ceiling high. But what am I expecting from a R90 silver? Sure as hell I can't expect you to figure that out by yourself.

 

I am pretty sure my 5000+ hours has exposed me to "good" players, allowed me to progress above rank 90, and have achieved gold threat. You haven't hit a "soft spot," you're just wrong.

 

Explain to me how you playing "enough games" like DOTA and CS, makes your opinion valid as fact? APB is a shooter. Play any game for 1000s of hours and you're going to be good at it. The issue is you're killing the game with your mindset. You're making excuses for bad players. In all shoot games like APB, you're going to have good players and bad players. No amount of protecting them is going to help their lack of skill.

 

Everyone regardless of hours is going to hit their skill peak. There will be "the best player" all the way down to "the worst player" and every in between. 

 

It isn't a fact, as you like to state it, that APB requires more hours or more skill or more whatever else compared to any other shooter game. Some will catch on quick, some won't. If you've played "enough games" as you claim to have this superior opinion, then I think you'd agree in all the games you've played there are really high skill level players and other players that are terrible despite having time spent in game.

- A silver R90 who's never faced good players.

 

From your posts and I can tell you're a very skilled player with a ton of experience.  :rolleyes:

 

Keep thinking APB has that high skill level.

This game has, by far, one of the biggest learning curves you can imagine. 
Get used to getting rekt for the first 200-300 hours or so. 

 

 

I've played Dota 2 on and off for more than 4000 hours, trust me, I know what I'm talking about. APB has an extremely difficult skill and learning curve, maybe not the most extreme but it's definitely up there.

 

APB is the hardest game in the world. If you're good at it you should crowned the king of all gamers.  :NuhUh:

 

APB is a shooter. Learn the maps, learn the guns, and you're good to go. It doesn't take 300 hours to figure that out. Stop making it sound like it takes a special skilled person to be good at APB.

I didn't log in once during the event so I'd say it was a flop since it wasn't very appealing or enticing enough to make other players want to log in. When I read about the glitches and the bad reviews I didn't even want to bother patching/launching. Just the same event we've had before.

If you give the people what they want in market you can make money pretty well (dont need premium to make money in social at least i dont.)

 

I was fortunate enough to have people send me some mods and cars and such. Without premium and just playing missions I have close to 3 million APB and I am around rank 210-220. 

 

If non premium players want to make easy money and they aren't good at making symbols and/or themes just level up a role to level 14 and sell the mods on the market place. People really seem to like hunting sight 3, improved rifling 3, and cooling jacket 3. Of course you are limited to how many mods you can buy from contacts per day. 

 

Despite what people say, APB does have some pretty nice people in it. Make some friends who have played the game for a long time and I am sure they will hook poor players up with mods and such....I would.
