    If you're in the beta and want to share your views, please do it in the closed beta forums. We have a Facepunch thread at the following URL;

    Break NDA on here at your own risk. They're very strict about it and you'll probably have your account banned.

    What is the ptw and how do you get invited?
    I think it is a server where they test the newest patches. Also I think it is random invite. I might be wrong.

    It's a random invite that's mostly based on what feedback you've given. I never gave a single bit of feedback though

    Well, this fucking sucks. Everyone is at about the same level, and that means everyone (And I do mean EVERYONE) is using an OCA. As am I. Problem is, due to the server being halfway across the globe, I'm at an extreme disadvantage. My ping is usually in excess of 300, so even in a completely even match, I've still got an unaccounted handicap.

    Really considering waiting for the NA shit to start, can't take these damn EU servers anymore.

    I got a PWT invite too. I didn't report any bugs or anything like that even once.
    And how do I make my client work with that, I don't want to re-download it.

    I think you can just copy everything over from the beta launcher to the new one, then just select repair on the launcher.

    Install with the new launcher, copy the content folder from beta to the APB Europe PTW\APBGame, overwrite. Delete clientfiles.xml, restart the launcher and now you only need to download 400mb.

    Go into the beta launcher for the first time in a while, see this:

    The APB Beta you knew and loved has passed on, it is no more, it has ceased to be, it has expired.
    As you have probably guessed by that little intro it is my duty to inform you, our wonderful Beta testers, that the current APB Beta will be drawing to a close a few days earlier than we previously mentioned.

    We will be bringing the beta service to a close on June 4th, as we need to conduct some additional maintenance to the datacenters over the 5th and 6th.

    While I know many of you will be upset to see your characters and hard work disappear in a puff of smoke, that is the nature of Betas.

    We here at Realtime Worlds appreciate all the hard work and effort you’ve put into the APB Beta and all of the valuable feedback you’ve given us over the months and we look forward to seeing and hearing again from you in very near future.

    It’s sooner than you might think.

    In fact feel free to circle June 10th on your calendars, as that will be the day that will see us flipping the switch for the Key to the City event. As established Beta testers you will automatically have access to this event via the accounts you currently use for the APB Beta.

    We look forward to seeing you there!

    This isn’t the end, It’s just the end of the beginning and a glorious chaos-filled future awaits you all.

    hey guys,
    i'm also invited for the PTW of APB.
    I deinstalled the beta and installed the new launcher. Then i downloaded the whole 7GB again and installed.
    Now i tried to login with the same login as for the beta and im receiving an error message :-((

    "this account is currently in use from another client (error code 10004)"

    anyone else had this problem? and how to fix this? And no, i didn't tell my PW to anyone :)

    i've also repaired the game using the launcher but nothing changes so far...

    That's usually a sign that the servers are currently down.

    It's public testing for randomly picked people that were in the closed beta.

    It's free for us, so I guess it's better than the Key To The City event coming up soon .

    The part of the email that describes how I got in is this.

    Now here’s where you come in. The PTW is an invite-only environment. As you’re reading this, that means you’ve been selected as one of the users based on the high level and quality of feedback you’ve been providing during beta. Congratulations!
    I only gave like 3 bug reports, though one was game breaking. Though it's strange because my boyfriend got invited and he didn't even send any bug reports. Hell, he can't even play because it crashes in 3 minutes for him.

    And now that you have to pay, it looks bad? Sorry I don't think I'm understanding this. If anything P2P games are WAY better than free games. Customer support is always there, plus you get what you pay for. Just my 2 cents.

    i respect your opinion, but i don't like the idea of paying 50/40 dollars for a game, and then paying for it again in a month, and again, and again. once i buy a game, i shouldnt have to Pay more money to play it.

    it's 6 fucking dollars for 20 more hours. Plus you get 50 hours free when you buy it, you can also buy time using ingame points, and earn time by doing missions.
    You're an idiot if you refuse to buy this game just because you have to pay some money.

    Hell even a 10 year old could make 6 bucks.
