APB: Reloaded PC server merges incoming

    
20

Starting next month, APB Reloaded will be merging its current PC population in the west onto two improved servers, one in Europe and one in the US. These servers will not only be faster but be able to boast a much higher capacity than what the current tech can handle. The EU server will go live on April 22nd, with the US one to follow on May 6th. The team is still debating the future location of the current single-shard Asian world.

Of course, as with any merge, there will be issues with character and guild name duplication. The devs outlined the rules for which character and guild will hold on to their name, with play time, seniority, and activity being the main deciding factors.

New console servers for both the Xbox One and PlayStation 4 are also slated to go online during this period.

I loved this games concept but it was and still is absolutely infested with hackers.

Screaminhotdog That was my biggest beef with APB Reloaded. The game was incredibly fun, but as I got better and better at it and started getting matched up against the Gold ranked players, it became blatantly apparent that most of them got there by using aim-bots and 3rd party software to cheat. Some of the stuff I’d seen in the gold rank was damn near impossible to do. But until you reach Gold rank, the game is very fun. Playing against the non-cheaters up to Silver was amazingly fun and time consuming. Unfortunately, the game doesn’t do anything obvious to stop the cheating.

They altered key map points to stop camping and have done it a few more times since. They did nothing to car chases and even internally tested a racing district before dropping it. I don’t agree at all, no update has done what you say. At worse you could say rocket launchers in conjunction with the new car surfer mod make running away to hold the lead harder.

Check it out, Fairfight anticheat is in now. There is even a fansite that tracks banned people because they are publicly announced. The real issue now is getting those new servers out. They have been working at it a long while now.

Firefight listed a bunch of games they would like to be in. APB community was on the list and they rallied to bug Reloaded enough to get it implemented. It even publicly shames people when it bans them.

They are working on an upgrade to a new unreal version as well as new contacts. Maintenance mode is the worst I would expect if anything bad goes down anytime soon. They keep reinvesting into the game with hardware and new staff when they fired some of the old. It probably isn’t as profitable as it once was, but they seem to have confidence in it.

If APB would branch out and allow players to run private servers with custom mods, they could make allot of money. As much as I appreciate the work they have done on the game, the removal of car chases and pushing the camping playstyle really hurt the overall feel of the game.

I loved this game, I mean really, me and my wife played it A LOT. Its one of the most positive MMO experiences I’ve had, my custom cars, clothe, our cops and criminals. Even without lack of new features, the PVP element of it was amazing.

Then the hackers came, and they did nothing about it, or maybe they couldn’t. But it killed it. You don’t know how many times my wife and I would see CLEAR hackers. Like folks that can find you hiding in the weirdest spot, people that didn’t miss and had scores of like kills 100 to 1 death. If they would fix that, heck id come back right now.

With the amount of cheats available I’m surprised that people play this game. My gaming time is very small. I wouldn’t want to spend my time on a game with such rampant cheating.

“Boast a much higher capacity”
Uh-huh.
