    It's sad to see a game with such potential fall by the way side but the flaws were evident at the beta stage, and probably long before, and nothing was done to fix them before release.

    I want a refund for the RTW points I spent and never used.

    Not sure you'll get a refund tbh.

    Shame for everyone involved, both at RTW and those who purchased the game/ingame credit etc. Can't say I am surprised though - as soon as they went into administration it was hard to see how the servers could keep going without a new buyer.

    Don't worry, I don't for one second think that I, or anyone else, would get a penny back. Sucks though, have quite a bit of unspent RTW points as I purchased them when I was really enjoying the game and well before it went into administration.

    Re: News - APB servers to close only three months after launch

    Just feel sorry for the customers. For every person that hated it, there was a hundredth of a person that enjoyed it.

    They've forked out for the game, forked out for the points, invested a lot of time and effort and the whole lot is down the drain. I was hoping they might be able to hand out the server code to at least permit unofficial servers but I suspect the code will be sold off in some capacity. You never know, some budget company might try to resurrect it in some way, after buying the code, but it's a faint glimmer.

    I know someone like Saracen would point out that it's the lottery you play with these solely-online games, and they'd be right, but I still feel sorry for the poor sods.
