this game did nothing for me. but then, I'm no GTA fan either. random stuff happening because of no reason is only nice to see in a montage on youtube. If you build your whole game around it it's only good for dicking around which is exactly what I do in my spare time or have 5 GTA games for, don't need no MP game for that. No story, purpose and feedback, not to speak of technical problems and bad UI design makes this Hellgate with driving imo. I had a few fun moments in it but all in all it's just GTA multiplayer with permanent achievements and unlocks, more for the MMO crowd than somebody interested in a team/objective based gameplay with minimum skill (as opposed to being able to just buy the biggest gun) and then the pedestrian AI ..... omg
but give somebody the opportunity to play barbie with his avatar and it's suddenly an innovative and interesting game, not an assortement of random deatmatches which just happens to be on the same server/game world/block without having any connection whatsoever. there are no great city-wide multi-gang multi-objective multi-path heist missions, just "rob bank" and "stop robbers". there is no "M" in APB if you know what I mean (small riddle)

Haytoors guna hayte.

Game has major problems however. Framerate and stuttering being most annoying probably. Right after that poor weapon balance, pretty meh matchmaking system, general unlock derp.

Also heard rumors that EA is going to turn it into MMO with both subscription fees AND cash shop. Now you and I can predict where this is going and all it lacks is SoE supervision for total combat overhaul (to make it more WoW-like) and we're in for the same fate as Auto Assault.

Shame, overall idea and some details are great.

For all of you starting enforcerers: do try LTL guns. So much fun!

Harder to use, but very rewarding. And you can taunt arrested punks too! :P
LTL is great it is a shame that it takes much longer to level up. A clanmate sent me a NL-9 recently, great fun especially for pissing of criminals. The next best gun to that is the LTL GL, i had the gun earlier in the beta before the character wipe, 2 shot stun with a good amount of splash damage ftw.

Global Agenda executive producer Todd Harris expressed his condolences for the loss of APB.

"Today, we mourn our latest fallen colleague, APB. In making APB, Realtime Worlds had a bold vision to make an MMO devoid of traditional tab-targeting, cast bars, and die-roll combat. We honor their effort and innovation, and greatly mourn the game's closing."

What touching, heartfelt sentiment! I feel tears coming on. Oh wait.

"So between today and Friday, September 24, 2010, we are offering refugees from APB and other Shooter/MMOs an opportunity to join Global Agenda's growing community more easily and affordably than ever. We figure you deserve it. And you'll fit right in since you already know how to aim." Anyone who purchases Global Agenda from the game's official website can enter the code "LongLiveShooterMMOs" to receive a 30 percent discount on the game, or $20.99.

Juan, that looks like an advertisement to me. Are you trying to sell your product on the forums? Isn't that a bannable offense?!

A few ex-apb players are playing GA, a couple in my clan do but not that often. I think a lot of them are waiting for GW2.
