View Full Version : All Point Bulletin: Reloaded - Stun guns are for faggots

Ok update, since this game is better with groups we are all playing on the Obeya (EU) server as criminals, because protecting virtual citizens is not as fun as driving them over and pickpocketing them. So Obeya, Criminals, post in game name here that is all.

Open Beta instructions can be found here (http://forums.gamersfirst.com/index.php?showtopic=163136)



Player List Obeya
Devec = Devec
Razor = AlexTuring
Misan = Misan
SRS Tali = Drogo
filingo = freecandygirl
Derpy'eart = WiseKitty
Entrox = Entrox
Dark Flare = DarkFlare
cullnean = Cullnean
Dr.Boomtown = doctorboomtown
zergl = zergl


Clan is now up, The F Team will be rolling around in black vans (when we unlock them). Add me to your friends-list (Devec ingame) and I'll get you in. I can only do this when we are both online because of massive derp from the dev's side.


About:
All Points Bulletin Reloaded is the reincarnation of the previously failed game All Points Bulletin which has now gone totally f2p with the usual freemium scheme and cash shop attached. It is set in an urban environment where players battle head to head over objectives in missions in a pvp system which depends more on tactical thinking than flat out arcade shooting. You can either take the side of the Enforcers (a civillian police force) or the Criminals (durr). In short it is what a GTA multiplayer should be with the best customisation tools seen in a mmo so far.

A short feature list:
- Do missions for contacts which put you opposite to the other party who you must sabotage or stop to win
- Steal and drive cars or make your very own custom car which you can modify to your liking
- Get better weapons and modifications which allow you to modify your weapon to your own liking
- Unlock clothing and other gizmo's to dress your character to whatever the fuck you want it to look like
- Meet people and shoot them, become dangerous (read own others) and you will become notorious/prestige making you a free for all target until you are eliminated
- Mow down civilians, mug them or ram raid shops to earn a little extra cash gives you easy access to lots of notoriety
- Have doog times by blowing up cars and killing bads who flock to f2p
- Not much storyline at this time but who really cares when you can shoot people

I've been playing it today for a bit and so far it's good fun driving around the city and shooting random people really has that GTA feel to it. The customisation you can do is immense. Unfortunately the game doesn't run as well as I had hoped on my laptop so the action bits are a bit choppy for me.

Not sure how much lasting power this has as although it is more pvp based than anything you can just run into somebody with bigger guns and more armour against who you don't stand a chance.

The idea of it all is very sound though.

What are the benefits of a clan besides the obvious tag anyway?

Right now there isn't any benefit to being in clan besides easier grouping. They disabled the leagues during closed beta and haven't re-implemented them yet (they were heavily abused/farmed in RTW days). There aren't any kind of restrictions on clans (besides a 150 person cap). Ever since open beta started I've been getting some really bad rubber banding and other bullshit despite an OK ping. Had no problems like that during CB.

In any case, APB is only ever really enjoyable with 3-4 guys on voice comms. Solo is better than it used to be, but PUGs are still terrible.

I copied my old RTW crim over to Obeya a while ago, same name as here conveniently: Misan.

The rank doesn't mean nearly as much as you might think. Most upgrades now have some pretty significant downsides (kevlar hurts move speed, etc.) too, so being upgraded isn't nearly as much of a benefit as it was originally. Can still suck, but there are ways to counter them now generally.

Wow, after playing for a while, this game makes you rage like a beast. Not even BFBC2 made me rage so hard. I won't even begin about why; everybody should try it out to know how a shooter should not be made. You'll be delighted with the uselessness of a newbie against an older player, along with the faulty matchmaking system. The driving and the game concept are cool, though.

Euro servers have some hardware problems so they put in a queue apparently. It got so bad there was 40% packet loss at one point.

As far as driving goes, RTW did a rebalance of the cars before they shutdown and then G1 has also done some tweaks. Most are much more unique now and still drivable, although the vegas is stupidly hard to control sometimes.

Nah snipers are okay, they are terrible up close and therefore only useful in a group.

The smg's are fucking terrible, the one worth 2400 dollars is a piece of shit compared to the STAR (starter gun) as it lacks range a lot and most combat doesn't happen up close. And as a bonus it only lasts 10 days on free account.

The OCA has always been a solid gun and still does pretty well. It's usually what I use when I end going on killing sprees (15-3 or similar). PMG is better at close range and only takes a couple bullets to kill. Seems to be worse at mid-range combat due to the rate of fire and larger spread. I can't remember a time when I actually lost to a STAR unless I was stuck 20m out from them. YMMV. I rely pretty heavily on flanking.

Matchmaking is getting a bit stupid now that my enf is in the gold TL bracket. Spent an hour earlier and only got 3-4 opposed missions in a group of 3. :cry: Guess I should derp around on my crim later to get some faster matches.

Matchmaking doesn't get any better. It just depends on the player population in whichever district you are in. Enfs sometimes can get more matchups if the population is uneven, but I've spent 30 minutes driving around getting almost nothing before (partly due to higher threat level)...

Saw they added a permanent weapon (3 slot Joker Carbine) you can buy with cash...the damn thing costs ~$60, wtf.

It's probably all pretty much the same except for different unlocks.

Also matchmaking is sometimes :psyduck: as I had to go up to a team of 2x rank 130's who could outgun me due to their upgraded guns which had tens time more the precision than my stock gun. For example where my n-tec 6 sometimes missed on its own their just hit me every time they aimed for me fully. Something I discovered was due to the modifications you can buy for the better guns.

Played it for about 10 hours, very amusing game but no long term appeal, farming instances for the sake of unlocking guns and clothes to farm more instances is sorta meh. Also documentation is shit and the amount of farming required to unlock most of the cop related stuff is insane.

iirc a regular cop uniform requires like cop rank 15 to unlock, rank 1 requires 12 arrests (not kills) and it took me like 3 hours to get 9 so far and thats mostly because i got matched with noobs for 1vs1's a few times :psyduck:

Needs more of a team vs team free for all territory control type thing like planetside had. Also driving is shit with 9/10 cars, the taxi's are surprisingly easy to drive though.

I'm impressed with the customizability of the game though and it made CCP carbon look like an even bigger piece of shit then it already is. I mean shhhiittt i can make my own fucking tattoos and tape them anywhere on my fucking body :? Plus reskinning clothes, cars and modding ingame music makes it even more epic.

Best is to play with a small team and not on your own, using TS makes this thing a blast as well that it when you look at it is just GTA multiplayer. We could do some stuff with the f-team as well from time to time, although I am not sure what I can do with a clan as it now just seems like a easier grouping thing.

I would like some more content other than 2 instances and missions but it might be withheld from the beta (not sure), however not knowing how gamersfirst works I am not sure if they will add much more. Will look into this though.

The character customisation of ccp's dress a space biker falls miles short of what is the most complex character customisation I have seen in a game so far. It's not without its flaws but it's a great selling point.

The star gun is really quite solid, it might not have as much damage as others but it shoots very precise, if you can keep range off your enemy whilst making use of cover you can get very far with this gun. Just don't try and take on a short range smg or shotgun because then you will most likely die.

Misan
June 1 2011, 04:31:02 PM
The two districts are the totality of the content as of RTW's original release. They had "leagues" before which were basically top score competitions to serve as a sort of end-game competitive thing. They are turned off right now, but G1 was saying they planned to bring them back if they could make them less exploitable. They have actually cut down on the total number of missions available by trimming out the total shit ones. Some of the missions especially from top tier contacts were crazy hard to win against anyone competent. Some of the current ones still are.

Ultimately it is a shooter, so the replayability comes from enjoying shooting enemies in the face. Though there are rumors of them actually looking into adding the territory control or "chaos" zones at some point in the future. Definitely not seeing either at release however.

we need to arrange a time and place for F team

Sure just hit me up an I'll add you to the clan, I'm on most evenings in the eu tz.

I've now got an f-team suv but so close to a black van.

Also I discovered a new form of faggotry in this game. People who are in the same clan but not the same missions use each other to scout. Example I am shooting person A but person B of the same clan who is not part of the mission is hovering on where I am standing to give instructions to person A what I am doing where I am moving and then relays that to person A. This can also be done by starting a mission and then adding a friend to your group. So person A can see where person B is standing but I can not shoot person B and he keeps giving away my movements. That only leaves fighting head on which against these higher rank people is mostly lethal. Also grenade throwing is out of the question as person B just tells person A to find some cover. It is immensely bad.

Misan
June 3 2011, 12:21:38 PM
Yeah, ghosting is massively lame, but I've seen people take that and do 10x worse. Not sure if it is still doable, but you could have an out of mission buddy drive a car over a drop point (or blocking an arson point) and you couldn't blow it up. If they somehow got a grieftruck on it it would be an auto-loss since there is no way you could push it off the point either. Might have been patched out, but I can't remember. Definitely haven't seen it since the closed beta wipe at least.

yeah im aware of that.. its just even with a good group on TS its still wears thin after a while. Espc if you played it lots when it first was released.

Yep pretty much afaik it's an unofficial launch as the closed beta had been running for some time so they just seem to be ironing most faults out with a larger audience.

Also I got a premium account and I do love skipping queues at any time of the day. It's only 10 dollhairs and 8 for any month that follows up, I think that is a very decent price for a premium account.

Well this is why I like f2p so much you can get a good taste of what it's like but not have and if you like it you can get a premium account (support the dev support yourself) and if your a faggot you can buy shop items.

I think if they are serious with this and polish up all the shit that took place over the horrendous 5 year development time for this game then it could actually be pretty good fun and hell for half of the price for a sub that most mmo's charge.

From what I have heard they will be adding territorial warfare and a new non-cars district so there is new stuff coming our way in the future.

Ah well whatever it may be I enjoy my premium account giving me somewhat more xp and money so it makes the game less grindy (30% doesn't sound like much but it really is). Also they have published some short term fixes they are bringing out and will publishes a road map for what they are bringing in the future and when. Short term fixes can be found here:
http://apbreloaded.gamersfirst.com/p/ap ... -maps.html (http://apbreloaded.gamersfirst.com/p/apb-development-road-maps.html)

One of them will be severely shortening the loading screen, which is about fucking time. Also coming this month will be district recommendations which put you in a district based on your level instead of putting you in with all higher ranked people, should offer even more better fights with people of your level and making ghosting with a scrub alt harder.

Some of the longer term plans are a new district called the asylum, clan warfare and more goodies for higher level players. Sounds good so far seeing you can come back any time without having to be a premium account user.

What severely fucking annoys me atm is all the faggot enforcers running about with those taser guns, especially the higher level ones incap you in 2-3 shots making you vulnerable to arrest and worthless to your team for 10 seconds. Although with the recent matchmaking system fix the amount of people I had to go against with them has dropped. Still combine these guns with the stun grenades and your criminal team can easily be dominated by a properly setup stun team. As far as I know you can't do anything against as in upgrades or protection other than trying to shoot them before they see you which can be hard if you are assigned to a mission where they can easily camp the rooftops.

Will be playing tonight again around 9ish gmt even tough max group sizes are 4 people at max so I don't know how many slots we will have open tonight.

Sandzibar
June 9 2011, 04:40:39 PM
Yeah the LTL guns were fucking annoying in the previous incarnation of APB for several reasons:

1) when arrested you are out of the game for 20secs+ - which on time based missions completely fucks you over.
2) the handgun LTL wep can 1 shot you effectively.
3) stun grens are awesomely effective.
4) theres no way now to improve the stamina pool (that these weapons effect instead the Hitpoint pool of conventional weps - which are made less effective by hp regen mod / or the kevlar reduced dmg mod)

So high level enforcers get harder to kill with more advanced mods.. but crims dont get harder to stun.

Had hoped that part of the revamp was the way this weps were implemented.. but no.. they are still OP as fuck..

Not seen anyone with the NL9 shotteh yet.. but that was like a fast firing sniper rifle of a gun, that incapped you in 2 hits, with AK range. Prob hasnt changed either.

Honestly.. what did these fuckers actually do in the 1year(?) theyve had making this new version???

Misan
June 10 2011, 04:01:41 AM
LTL isn't really competitive with lethal like it was during the original APB. G1 made quite a few changes to the LTL guns. The NL9 was actually a shotty during the 1.4 recoil patch and the CCG was similar to how it is now, but even faster RoF and quicker stun rate. Now CCG is inferior to an N-tec at range and even in CQC you are rolling the dice vs a bad CQC gun like the N-tec. NL9 is a 3 shot (sometimes 4) with no spread and a shotgun RoF, which means it isn't utterly terrible, but it definitely isn't amazing. Missing shots is a death sentence against anyone good. The PIG (last I checked anyway) is still a 2 shot stun but now has a 1 bullet clip...so you have to reload to actually get it to work on an uninjured opponent. TG-8 is a decent secondary, though I'm not sure if it stuns quicker than an FBW can kill.

Though ultimately there are two major drawbacks to using LTL right now: they have a hard-capped range below maximum (somewhere around ~75%) where hits don't even register beyond that, and with no hard damage they are utterly useless against vehicles which is a huge downside.

RTW APB had energizer which made LTL less effective but G1 removed it. I have no clue why. vOv

The problems with 32b seems unavoidable. To load a whole district just will go over that. On that regard, they are just about to implement 10vs10 team deathmatch that only will use a portion of the map (and not making you go from one point of the district to the other constantly like now). Like another gameplay. You load the mission and then enter the map. We'll see.

I should have a black van but I'm afraid I uninstalled the game as I never played anymore, it had the pretty fail squad logo as well...

I might offer the game a revisit if they add some more content but the endless grind is just not appealing enough. Especially with a pvp system that is a bit out of whack.

I expect this game to continue going downhill.

Also endless grind is only endless without mates to have fun with.
Much like WoT tbh.

Oh yeah I was playing this with 3-4 other guys but once you get into the higher matchmaking the difference between weapon levels is clearly noticeable and you end up being more slaughtered than having good fights.

This is why we started running enforcer missions until we again hit that wall.

So I picked this up when it went F2P on steam and its actually rather fun with a few friends

Anyone else playing it?

no but I, too have been intrigued since f2p and would like to know more

I never played it when it was sub based. But it has quite a nice population now that it is F2P

It went the world of tanks route and offers you a premium account that allows you to level up contacts and earn money faster, plus allowing you to buy "gold" guns.

On f2p accounts regular guns disappear after 10 days, which is something I find quite odd though. Guess I need to play some more to really highlight the differences

This games still crashes my box whenever I exit the game. Killing either Vivox service or apb.exe still causes massive I/O and CPU usage. System can't power off without holding power button. That's the main reason I'm not playing.

That and fucking Whispers.

Nordstern
January 14 2013, 10:01:05 PM
Okay, I'm still playing. My Crim is now 138 and has a 2-slot T-25, which makes VIP missions much easier. I also started an Enforcer and got about 20 levels in maybe 3 hours.

New players now max out their first contact.
OBIR with hunting sight still rapes face.
Semi-auto carbines remain very powerful. Joker carbine with reflex sight for short-medium range, Obeya CR762 with hunting sight for medium-long.
The Sungnyemun Moirai got tweaked. It's still a fast car with great durability, but the acceleration is very touchy now. It takes about a second to kick in, and then it roars for about two seconds. This makes it okay for pursuit, but terrible for backing up and stop-and-go. Also tends to fishtail wildly in any sort of lag.
The Nulander Kurai looks better than the Charge Sentinel on paper, but it actually is far more touchy in handling. Sentinel performs better in lag, and tips over less. NPC Kurais seem to spawn far more than Sentinels, though.
Asylum and Baylan Shipping districts are pure PVP with no mucking around with missions. Great and fun way to grind those role levels.
Fewer hackers around.
You can rent "gold" guns from new contacts in Social District for Joker districts, which are earned in the new Fight Club districts.

And now the bad:
Bronze players just out of the tutorial are still paired against R200+ gold players with tommy guns and rocket launchers. Bronze, silver, gold districts don't mean anything anymore.
Not too many Whispers around. Those have been replaced with the M-1922 or something, which is a Tommy gun. Pair that with Cooling Jacket 3 and you are unstoppable unless the opposition has a sniper rifle or OSMAW.
You still have to buy "gold" guns to compete with top players effectively.
"Gold" guns are still ridiculously expensive.
You can plaster swastikas everywhere and not get banned.
If you are a premium player, you can be disruptive and hack openly and never get banned.

Devec
January 14 2013, 10:46:27 PM
So it has gotten even worse. Really for a f2p game it is not worth putting much time into it because you are not getting anywhere, unless you put a ton of money in it.

I have to say the start is still very much fun, but there is no resemblance of a fun mid/late game left if there ever was one.

At least it had physics before it was cool.
