    Post APB: Reloaded Beta Key Contest

    UPDATE: Contest is now closed, PMs to the winners have been sent. Congratulations to all participants and enjoy the early access, be sure to tell us about it here on the forums!!

    Original Post:


    We met up with the GamersFirst team responsible for the relaunch of APB: Reloaded at GDC last week and successfully snuck out a couple of Beta Keys to share with you guys!

    Since we only have a handful of them we want to make sure that they go to people that will use their precious time to really test the game and give the developers lots of feedback!

    We've come up with a couple of ways to put your dedication to the test:

    1. Twitter
    Follow OnRPG on Twitter and @message us the tag-line/slogan you believe GamersFirst should use for APB: Reloaded. Make sure you use the #apbonrpg hashtag so we know you're trying to get a key and not just sending us random messages . The best taglines will be rewarded with a beta invite! If you win you'll receive the details via DM on Twitter (so make sure you follow us).

    2. Facebook
    Like OnRPG on Facebook and tell us the name of your Criminal Gang or Enforcer Vigilante Team as a response to the Beta Key Contest Wall post. The most hilarious ones will be rewarded with a beta invite! If you win you'll receive the details via message on Facebook.

    3. OnRPG Forum
    You can prove you are a worthy Beta tester for APB:Reloaded right here in this thread as well! To make sure you have what it takes to give proper feedback to the dev team post an answer to this thread answering the following questions:
    - What feature from the original APB did you like and do you think should remain in the game, explain why!
    - What feature do you believe needed a complete overhaul, again, explain why!

    the best answers will be rewarded with a beta invite! If you win you'll receive the details via PM here on the forum.

    Note: The keys will not give you instant access to the beta but they will ensure that you get invited in the next wave of invites!

    On Monday all of your entries will be judged... may the best criminals and enforcers win!

    I loved the character creation of the original APB series. This feature should remain in the game because it allows the players a deeper connection between themselves and their online counterpart.

    The game was great and all, but it had extremely limited content; the world was too small. It'll be great if they offered the same game with a bigger virtual world.

    Less than lethal, we're no more than thugs if we don't at least -pretend- we're trying to apprehend criminals.

    Clan Leagues, it was more a display of who played the most/had the most members rather than actual skill.

    The radio system, I hope it will never disappear. Even when you don't have the mp3/song of your fellow players it is still awesome that the system scans the song and tries to find a matching song to it.

    The matchmaking system, it was so broken that it wasn't very fun to play, matched up against people 20 ranks higher than you ruins the fun, I hope they fix the match making system completely.

    I aswell think that the radio system should most definitely stay! Although I haven't played the old APB, I've heard nothing but great things about the audio in it. I've never seen anything like it before.. I mean, come on! If a person passes you with a song you like but you don't have it, it would automatically find a similar one. Amazing how far technology has come.

    The game's optimization. I've heard that it wouldn't run that well even on top-end PC's. That needs some fixing!

    I like the customization of the character and I liked feeling like I was really playing as a cop stopping bad guys from doing tasks. The game was almost perfect except for a few things.

    Shooting system was to easy to Aimbot and also like stated above the match making system putting people who were almost experts with people that were noobs.

    Alright, here we go.

    Drive-by shooting. It made for amazing car chases, especially when you were in a car with 4 people and that one song comes on. Those moments made the game what it was.

    What feature do you believe needed a complete overhaul, again, explain why!
    Plenty of things, but mostly the upgrades. Everyone used the same 3 weapon upgrades: Rate of Fire, Damage and Accuracy. And for character upgrades, increased health. There were a bunch of other upgrades that were simply outclassed. Coupled with the unbalanced weapons it made the game extremely unfun, especially when you're a low rank rookie getting killed by stat-padding pro players.

    --Greatist feature--

    I gotta say it was the custimization esepcialy with the vechiles. Everyone truely was unique looking and I used to remember seeing the same cars that I really liked all the time, as well as sometimes I knew I was in serious trouble on an APB just from the look of the enforcers car as I remembered him pwning me several times already

    --Needs Improvment--

    Ive always said and I believe the one thing I wish ApB had was npc's with guns. Dont get me wrong the free money missions are good and the pvp was enthralling but I wouldnt mind having some npcs to kill for missions sometimes as well as players. I would love to see agressive npcs added to player missions.

    I really loved the character customization cause you wont see a character who looks totally the same like another one. So everyone knew who you are.

    The hitboxes werent that good. I think they really need Headshot bonus and better protection of aimbots.

    What I liked most was the completely new gameplay in the MMO genre. There are many MMO shooters but no open world, mission based shooter. That´s why APB is different and new and I love it!

    - What feature do you believe needed a complete overhaul, again, explain why!

    The missions were always the same! You always had to do the same just with another title of the quest! Go there, press F, go somewhere else, defend it, then go back where you were before and press F again! More fun and innovative missions would be awsome!!


    Hope you could understand everything

    Default My Thoughts

    - What feature from the original APB did you like and do you think should remain in the game, explain why!

    Besides the obvious customization options, I preferred having a small group of 4 people instead of larger scale battles with say teams of 8 or more. This allowed you to get to know clan members and their tactics better all while having the pressure of being 1/4th of the team and not say 1/16th...

    - What feature do you believe needed a complete overhaul, again, explain why!

    I believe the weapon system and the stat stacking on them needed an overhaul because simply put if you didn't have the in game currency or weren't saving up for the enhancements from the start you'll have no luck killing anyone with them. It made people who knew the obvious camping spots too overpowered and allowed them to rack in the kills.

    There are a lot of features I enjoyed from the game that I would like to keep. But probably the best feature I would want to stay the most would be the Character Customization. That feature made everyone different, and it allowed others to share their creations to players. This feature made the game very unique.


    - What feature do you believe needed a complete overhaul, again, explain why!


    The combat system or mission system would be the ones that needed to be fixed up a bit. It felt really repetitive to do the same missions over and over again, it did not feel any different apart from the fact that you were facing different people.

    Its likely been repeated several times, but let me clarify that I am not a random joiner. I browse OnRPG and read the news section quite often. However I rarely if ever enjoy reading forums.

    Anyways proceeding to the questions.

    - What feature from the original APB did you like and do you think should remain in the game, explain why!

    The most obvious feature I enjoyed was the amount of customization available. It was simply unmatched. I could have easily spent more time customizing and creating new characters rather than actually play the game(but of course I didn't as I enjoyed the game too much). Its quite obvious it should remain, and the limited customization for F2P is one of the primary reasons why I will be subscribing.

    But as a a sidenote, I think I speak for everyone when I say I love having in game music. This aspect has really made me enjoy the scenery and world being crafted as I stroll down the various districts playing Rolling Stones or A Tribe Called Quest.


    - What feature do you believe needed a complete overhaul, again, explain why!

    The one feature that definitely needs an overhaul was the memory leakage. Often at times my game would simply crash for no apparent reason. Looking at the usage history showed why. Many of my clanmates and friends have also experienced this issue. A stable and less buggy client is always the way to go to not make your fanbase angry. Afterall being in a buggy or unbalanced world is still preferable to being in a crashing/no world.

    Reading the blog posts, its very nice to see optimization and memory usage being prioritized. Those to me seem like the more difficult stuff.

    - I was in love with the custom stuff . Create ur char and cars like U really would love it to be ! it was all possible! It creates diversity in a game , thats exactly what a multiplayer game needs imo!



    - What feature do you believe needed a complete overhaul, again, explain why!

    - The driving really needed a total overhaul , it just didnt feel real at all , the car sometimes made moves that seem total impossible in real life -

    - Also the matchmaking system could be alot better , and the group size should be increased to atleast 8 ! I play a Multiplayer game to play together with as many peeps as possible!

    - And ( altough i never had trouble with it ) i think they should fix the lag/crashed ALOT of people seem to have. This is really gamebreaking , if that doesnt get fixed , a game will never be good .







    Thanks fo Readinngg

    PS. Excuse my bad english

    I liked the open world and the customization together, why u may ask? Well because it allowed you to create a character of your own style and personality, then you could customize your own car the same way. Then when you go out into the streets you can do whatever you want to do, you can be YOU, you can be that good cop who arrest all of his criminals that he or she encounters or be someone of laziness who doesn't do anything, just sits around all day unless they're needed(bad way to get money), or you could be a deranged killer who goes on a killing spree. Its not like other MMOs where u dress up in the same armors and you go the the same places to level up, that gets boring. This game is the most original I've seen in years.

    What feature do you believe needed a complete overhaul, again, explain why!

    I think the missions could be change, they seemed a bit static because you would do the same missions over and over again, sometimes they're in sequential order, they were ok but I would like something more with more action like a bomb about to explode(and it actually explodes) if you dont defuse it. Maybe all the crimes should be started by criminals because sometimes i would go into APBs against no one.

    Wow the general consensus is the customization being the strongest selling point of the game. Its not off since it's the absolute best customization feature ever built for a game.

    - What feature from the original APB did you like and do you think should remain in the game, explain why!

    The feature from the original APB that I absolutely loved was the character customization. I realize this topic is going to be picked alot, but it's hard to not pick it. First off, you can customize just about everything you can think of from your cheek bones to what paint job your car has. I loved how you could take such a wide variety of symbols you obtained to make different figures. It was always funny to see H**** Simpson or a Smilie face on a huge bilboard as you drove by.

    - What feature do you believe needed a complete overhaul, again, explain why!

    I believe that the upgrade system needs to be completely reworked. First of all, it isn't fair at all to new players who start out with the Star, and get completely dominated by someone with an upgraded Ntec. I've had alot of friends just flat out quit the game just because they would get APB'd against a team of four with upgraded Ntecs. It's not just the Ntec, but just about any assault rifle. This is why many people are looking forward to a chaos district with no upgrades allowed, we also were supposed to get chaos districts when Realtime Worlds owned APB, but well, they closed the game down.

    question, so the keys will allow you to get into the next wave of invites for sure? Or are they just normal keys that make you wait normally?
