Anyone else playing less?

The freezing bug has been pretty much the bane of my experience trying to play.

Hop on, freeze, decide to try again later but dont.

ID: hez20gm

I play less and less after the fuckup they did with the last 2 updates.

The only things that will bring me back are better servers, anti-cheat and a matchmaking system that doesn't suck ass. I don't even care about new content, I just want the game to not suck.

This fucking Bloodhound event fucking triggers me. I've tried landing ten times and they just camp the whole route.

Whoever thought putting a single player quest in a BR was a good idea should seriously rethink his career choice.

Fucking awful.

Has anyone heard a weird "whump" sound effect sometimes? Sometimes I'm just walking with my squad to loot somewhere and suddenly a hear a loud WHUMP like someone punching a punching bag. No one was making any noises except sprinting. No one was using their mics, so it had to have been coming from the game.

I've heard it in several different games. It wasn't just one game.

I've followed Respawn for a while. This is not an Apex problem it's a Respawn problem. DICE and other teams found a way to make the games work. Respawn is objectively incompetent

Does anyone else hear octane/pathfinder jump noises sometimes?
Makes me really paranoid.

7 : Anonymous2021/10/02 02:52 ID: hf1x998

How long are we going to go on with game freezes every other match and constant DCs? It’s absolutely ridiculous. This is by far the worst state that the game has EVER been and it’s been like this for weeks. Devs happily push out bullshit new content and won’t even address the horrendous servers. Absolutely ridiculous.

ID: hf1xxg7

Yeah it’s really bad. I dc every other game

8 : Anonymous2021/10/02 04:52 ID: hf29cvw

There are too many fucking scanny fucking McScann fuck characters in this game now.

9 : Anonymous2021/10/01 10:28 ID: heyjulv

Asking for better servers is hopeless guys 😐 It’ll never happen, since launch they’ve been shit. Maybe not as shit as now, but never up to today’s standards.

10 : Anonymous2021/10/01 14:21 ID: hez824j

So gues the Devs don't give a shit about this game now they have a mobile version.

I just played a game where in the 4th ring, the entire game audio went silent. No sound effects, no music, nada. I could only hear my teammates mic audio. As the game went on, the audio came back in pieces, and then in the last ring, everything comes back in full swing.

That's the worst audio I've experienced in Apex since I've played, and I'm a Week 1 player.

ID: heyrjkd

I've experienced the opposite, loud lobby music in the 4th ring, so loud you can't hear anything else but the music

I'm really not loving this bloodhound event, who thought it was a good idea to make people play one character on a map that isn't always available to do something that has absolutely nothing to do with the game, where you have to no fill to not ruin everyone else's fun because only one of you can actually do it at a time, and it forces you to go through some of the busiest areas of the map where you will undoubtedly get mowed down by the people actually playing the goddamned game.

13 : Anonymous2021/10/01 13:17 ID: heyzwhe

See how fucking fast they sorted those bundles out in the store yet im still getting disconnects every game

14 : Anonymous2021/10/01 14:29 ID: hez92ig

I can get over dying and dying for 20 kills/4k dmg players, but mediocres teammates that dies and harasses me on mic is killing my good time with this game.

15 : Anonymous2021/10/03 00:37 ID: hf5z2g2

Fuck respawn i love how they have banners that say theres no I in team and then proceed to release single player quests in a pvp game. I am genuinely baffled at who works at respawn

16 : Anonymous2021/10/03 08:21 ID: hf7aooi

I love this game. I really do. This was the first battle royale I ever played because none of the others interested me. I love the game play, I love the story and characters. Been playing since week 1, if not day 1. It's been a long time since the game has kept me so hooked to it for so long. I played it just about every day. Completed every battle pass, every quest, been through every event they have ever had. I give credit where it is due, Respawn made a great installment in the Titanfall Universe.

This is why it pains me to see the game in the state it is. It has become a chore to play, and I've slowly been playing less and less these past few seasons. My friends who I played with quit last season because of all of the server issues and unbalanced matchmaking. I stuck it out because I still love the game, but I think I'm going to be done once I've completed this battle pass. It's been fun, and I'm glad to have had such a fun experience, and I wanted to thank Respawn for the great game they made, even if poorly handled. As well as the community, because for all the toxic people I've encountered, I've encountered an equal if not greater population of amazing folks in this game.

Thanks, Legends.

Hands down, this game has the worst player base of any game I've ever played. Between all the super sweaty 3 stacks I run into who do nothing but play this game all day, and the absolute trash random teammates I get this game is just downright insufferable 90% of the time.

I’ve honestly never played or even imagined playing a game that is having the prolonged server trouble that this game is having. I had a streak of an hour earlier where the game didn’t freeze on squad banners but man I still freeze almost every game. Kinda unbelievable, so fuck me that I enjoy playing when the servers aren’t stupid so I keep playing

20 : Anonymous2021/10/01 11:18 ID: heynr0n

Surely they have to fix this... They can't leave the game this broken. DC at like the start of 50 percent of my games

21 : Anonymous2021/10/02 00:35 ID: hf1h77w

It is so unfortunate that this game has the devs it has. So much potential wasted. Blows my mind this is season 10 and this is how it is lol

22 : Anonymous2021/10/01 11:58 ID: heyrfab

Why is there loud lobby music when it is the closing stages of the match? I've encountered this more than 3 times in a single day playing Ranked.

23 : Anonymous2021/10/01 12:50 ID: heyws28

Bro can you guys like put out a message telling people about the animated banner issue?? I know you have the ability because you constantly have new sales and item shop messages, you even added a message for the new bloodhound event.

Most of my randoms are fucking addicted to their animated banners so I get to keep having frozen games.

Apex: puts event doable on World's Edge only

World's Edge: one out of 3 maps in rotation in a single mode.

Anyone else have the worst gameplay and matchmaking on the weekends? I constantly die and I only can get like 3 kills Fridays-Sundays

for fucks sake fix your servers

28 : Anonymous2021/10/03 17:46 ID: hf90rxe

Done with the game now until it's fixed. Constantly getting DC's in games still and now just got a DC in a ranked game and end up getting a leaver penalty and docked points on top of it. There is only so long you can give Respawn slack on this. One of the biggest games on the planet and it feels like all they care about are overpriced shop items. It comes to a point when even some of the loyal followers of this game have had enough and I am one of them(over 4.5k hours put in to the game).

29 : Anonymous2021/10/01 12:54 ID: heyx9mx

server. fix. now.

if you’re gonna be a dickhead and take bloodhound and just land on the event every round then please hit no fill

31 : Anonymous2021/10/03 17:06 ID: hf8up3b

Normal BR is just straight up stuck on "Matchmaking", really goes to show how fucking insanely terrible and amateur the set up of this event is.

A set of """"challenges"""" locked behind one legend on one map, in normal BR. Aside from having to deal with asshole intentionally hunting players doing the challenge, the servers are loaded every time WE comes up.

Respawn needs a complete shift in management and leadership.

Every other game I have to reset Apex. This is absurd. I'd almost call it unplayable.

Still can’t get into a game without it crashing

I want better Firing range like unlimited ammo you can change speed of the moving targets, activate no cool down, a 1vs 1 arena, I once dreamed about this was epic

35 : Anonymous2021/10/01 13:21 ID: hez0dv6

Let me tell you about the most game-breaking glitch. If you mute pings from a spam-pinger, but respawn them ... it doesn't recognize that you muted pings and will not let you mute them again. 90 seconds of spam-pinging a banner with no ability to mute was enough for me to just leave match and take the 10 min + points penalty.

Also, why doesn't the game automatically mute spam pinging?

36 : Anonymous2021/10/01 18:15 ID: hf04fqu

Sooo when are we gonna get a fix for the dog shit audio? There is either zero footstep audio or there is audio but it’s coming from a totally random direction.

Purple Rampart Special 30-30 needs to have shatter caps. No idea why it doesn't.

Shield drops feel lower for anyone else? I'm dropping tons of POIs in ranked and can't find a blue to save my life.

41 : Anonymous2021/10/02 22:10 ID: hf5fa1j

I'm on PS5 and getting 70 ping most of the time with occasional jumps up into 200ms and it's causing a lot of rubberbanding and just generally makes the game unplayable. This has only started in the last week and it's not my connection because the other shooters I play are showing a very stable and consistent ping.

Is anyone else experiencing this? I'm not really sure what I can try at this point.

42 : Anonymous2021/10/03 08:23 ID: hf7atga

Besides the current state of the serves, It blows my mind how there has not a single LTM for almost 3 months! Like seriously? Not one LTM?

Please ffs work on performance improvement. The cpu usage bug is there since genesis. Wake the fuck up. Stop implementing new features and adding 10 more bugs every patch. Just fix the core of the game. Fps drops to 40during the fights is so fucking annoying.

44 : Anonymous2021/10/01 12:59 ID: heyxut9

Lol this game is such a half-assed pile of shit. I wonder if EA is just going to shutter Respawn once dipshit whales stop buying apex skins.

Since the big update u get stutters and random crash ... its so bad i had to stop playing

How has this game been out for a few years now and the servers just keep getting worse!! Great and fun game but the servers make it damn near impossible to enjoy. BEGGING FOR A FIX

Also! Can there be some report button for people who play trios but abandon their team or leave right when they get knocked? Like wtf people don’t be trash
