    yeah lol, I'm not saying anything against the prices. I just said people should stop hating on people who do buy stuff.
    Why? They're the reason why G1 keeps the ridiculous prices. If no one bought it at those prices, they'd lower them.

    Yeah, but that's not gonna happen. Imo the prices aren't really that high. Then again the currency is pretty damn delicious for me as long as it's from america. the urban warfare pack cost 40 bucks. that's like.. a pack of smokes and a soda for me

    Oh sure, G1 totally need all those millions of dollars to handle a game they didn't even make and even then barely put any effort in the parts that they "made".
    People like you really piss me off. Especially when you have NO IDEA what you are talking about. "They don't need those millions of dollars to handle a game they didn't make." Really? So spending that 1.7 million USD to buy the source code for APB is nothing yeah? You probably think it doesn't cost anything to run a server either.

    And lol, didnt put any effort? G1 fixed RTW's shitty car handling, made it so non-faction cars were actually useful and held its own against faction cars, added negative attributes to modifications as well as color mods so you couldn't stack shit like Heavy Barrel and Cooling Jacket together, removed 3 OP mods that RTW had which killed balance, made fight club, redid the way item hold and checkpoint hold worked, reworked some One sided missions so it was more fair and removed some of the OP mission design choices RTW had like just needing to run away to win.

    ^ I agree. Sure they make some LOUSY decisions, but without them I wouldn't be able to play APB at all, so I guess I can be greatful for that. And I've noticed there's been a good amount of content (not armas) updates too, what with 1.8.0 now on its way.

    But whoever sets the ARMAS prices can go get raped because holy shit fuck them.

    Bold is still in game.

    And to be honest, I wish you could use bandolier with other magazine mods. I really like the fast reload and 24-shot capacity of my mag-pull N-TEC, but I always run out of ammo before I die. N-TEC needs 2-3 more magazines by default.

    Edited:

    But I agree that HB and CJ should never be on the same gun.

    No, its not.

    There used to be a mission design choice RTW had which involved crims needing to run away. They got points depending on "how well they escaped." If they took damage, caused property damage, killed or harmed players/civilians, caused harm to themselves (which didn't make much sense), they got a time penalty where the score bar wouldn't progress for x amount of seconds. That was removed from the game when G1 took over.

    G1 also made it so all item-hold missions were medium sized items. In RTW it was a mix of small and medium sized items.

    There are still many missions in which you can get 1 kill and then run away for 4 minutes to win.

    But that's the players choice, not an actual mission objective. You're not forced to run like T-Sonar is saying you used to be.

    Also, in that skin vid, it showed that the 'solid stock" n-tec was a different weapon.

    I hope it is a legitimately different weapon, and not a n-tec model that needs to be bought if you wanna use unlocked skins.

    I'd imagine that since that person is the new max rank in the vid, and is wearing what I'd assume is said contact's clothing, that it'll be an unlock from them.

    What the fuck kind of smokes and soda is it if they cost 40 fucking bucks?

    Sure it looks like a lot on paper, but there's still so many problems that have been there since RTW times and problems that G1 has brought in and haven't even bothered attempting to fix.
    And yeah, I know they did spend money on it, I'm not saying they did, but even then I'm pretty sure they could afford to have everything run with way lower prices, especially considering how many people buy the stuff even at the current bullshit prices.

    the 1,7 million that G1 payed is nothing compared to the 100 or so million that RTW spent on development


    but yeah, most prices are p. bad, though premium is really good value

    Yay, more shit that only less than 10% of the playerbase can equip!

    Seriously, they need to lower the weapon mods requirements to level 60-100, so people like me can buy it from the marketplace and use it.

    I agree, it should be maybe 140-150 in my opinion though so that you at least have to work to a semi high tier of contacts to get them.

    Oh also, completed the Baylan FC Challenge. Finally.

    After hours of HVRing, Scouting, and STARing, I am finally eligable for the Solid Stock N-TEC.

    All I have to do is make sure I stay within the 10% of players at all costs.

    It's scary because that number is rising fast, it want up 200k damage in 2 days.

    Best mod for the SHAW hands down is the new Muzzle Break (Horizontal). Unfortunately you need to be r195 to use it... But it just turns that gun into something fucking incredible.

    If there's a weapon you know you'll be using almost every mission, then yeah, I'd say it's worth it, especially with that 30% off sale going on.

    Thats my problem, I dont have a specific play style that im comfortable with. Sometimes I pretty much rush objectives, sometimes I hang back. So far I've been fairing well with my Scoped NTEC (mostly at range, but get a few CQC kills) but now I have a bog standard 0 slot SHAW im ripping things apart up close. SO hard to decide :(

    I dont see why people whine so much about the OCA and N-TEC. I have used both a lot and they both seem really balanced.

    Even with HB2, the N-TEC cant use full auto past medium-close range due to accuracy loss. Tap-firing with the N-TEC can prove accurate, but you will always be beaten by the Obeya, HVR and DMR at range. Joker depends on how the enemy plays. It is a medium range gun that leans more so to the short, but also has some success at long range.

    The OCA is a buffed PDW. Seriously, I have similar success with the OCA as I do with the PDW. It is such a niche gun, It is totally beyond me why people call it OP. If you land every shot with a N-TEC, Obeya (if you fire fast enough), Joker rifle (same story) or the STAR, you can beat the OCA. Not always, but at least 50% of the time I have beaten an OCA by crouching, going into marksman, and mashing the trigger when they get within 10m of me.

    Not exactly. All this whining about OCA is because OCA is lamest gun ever. You just run and spray people. Not like shotguns (you need to use covers constantly and know about JG/CSG spread) or rifles (you need to get a good position and don't spray, especially with N-TEC).

    So this happened for a good 2 minutes or so. Couldnt move, couldnt get out of my car. Was pretty funny to see everyone going apeshit in chat, blaming everything from end of world to admins porn downloading!

    Also, running into group of 4 unsuspecting 'forcers with a SHAW & letting her rip. Believe me those hackusations came in thick and fast...
