APB-Reloaded Open Beta This Month

The APB-Reloaded Website announces May 18 as the launch date for formal open beta testing of the upcoming resurrection of the APB: All Points Bulletin, the online sandbox shooter. That said, they also announce that most everyone interested in being a tester will probably be offered access to the beta before then:

However, between now and the Open Beta date (ie for the next two weeks), we will progressively permit access to MOST PEOPLE (17 or older in the US and 18 or older in the rest of the world) who do two things (1) creates (or already has) a GamersFirst Account with the appropriate info (see the link to the right of the blog) and then (2) submits his/her email (matching the G1 account) at the front of the APB page (www.gamersfirst.com/apb) in the "Newsletter Signup Email form." This will let us slowly turn up "the heat" on our servers before going fully "open."

It ISN'T in open beta yet....so WHEN IT IS in open beta all your arguments will then become relevant.

I'd be happy to see them fix the problems prior to open beta, I'm not saying otherwise. But I am glad you'll concede that there are issues with the game, even if it has to be a different phase of beta. I would like to see the game become more fun to play, but right now as a new player you gotta put up with a lot of long term players beating you without a chance in hell of opposition 9 times out of 10 for hours on end.

But you seem to think you know better because you're an expert on the game after less than a week of playing.

Unless the problems are intended, I don't see what experience with the game has to do with being able to recognize flaws or problematic consequences of game designs. I would assume they want to attract more players to their game, so it seems like letting people (especially new players) actually mention the problems would be beneficial.

As far as them taking money....you don't have to give them any money...so why are you bitching?

It's not really bitching, I don't plan on giving them my money until I find an enjoyable experience. It's more pointing out that they are taking in cash for a game that's influx to the point of systems not being solidified/balanced/fixed/implemented yet.

Oh and btw....this shows the depth of knowledge you have for this game....RTW is short for Real Time Worlds.

Yeah I looked it up after I posted then figured it really wasn't important for the discussion to change one line that had no bearing on my side. But, I have at least played both sides which I think is more important to discussing game issues than knowing who had hands in creating the initial release of this game.
