Apex is stupid because AP system is stupid
If I cared about AP I would just have a 'family' of backpack accounts to endlessly deploy lvl 1 resonators / busters to remove (win-trading)
How would you make me respect AP?
1) Limit max AP you can gain from a portal to 1,000 per weekly measurement
2) make all items except portal keys no drop
Otherwise AP is just a circlejetk of family of backpack accounts
