This game is literally fucking unplayable. After 9 seasons of thinking “wow why is everyone else complaining about this” I can’t play two games in a row without restarting the game.

Fuck EA and fuck Respawn for this great game built on absolute garbage.

September 2021. Worst month for Apex Legends ever?

ID: hfv0azv


I’d say it’s bad. Only other period of time I was this disappointed in the game was end of season 8 when there were 5 LTMs and they were so broken they scrapped 2 of them.

This game is so unrewarding, especially as a solo player.

You gain barely anything for wins or top 5s, you lose so much when you get knocked out early.

Relying on 2 randoms not to be complete trash gets boring.

Unless you are pred level, you can't carry 2 dead weights.

Diamond Lobbies are fully of tryhard 3 stacks that have been Maste


Lobbies are sweaty af in general.

Cosmetic rewards for playing many hours are too few and far between, honestly people that have played since day 1 should not have 0 or 1 Heirloom. It's obvious the devs and EA only want money so heavily restrict cosmetic rewards.

Level of fun = zero... Find myself just quitting after a few games nowadays. No reason to spend all day grinding when you can lose your points so easily.

ID: hg0sjj5

Day one player, I totally agree. The amount of times I’ve had a disconnected teammate in ranked the last few days is ridiculous. Then a muppet twelve year old will take on a 3 stack, get downed, then complain on mic where we were at. I can’t do this game anymore.

ID: hg0ts89

I can only play for about 4 days per split and then I get to a level in ranked where solo Qing becomes impossible. I don't play pubs because people hot dropping, getting knocked and leaving is an epidemic and I am consistently fighting players with 4k/20 stacks.

I have 1.5 KD on my best day and there's nowhere I can play the game effectively that isn't a shit show. So I get to play until I hit my skill ceiling in ranked and then I quit until next split because I refuse to make a bunch of smurf accounts or abuse matchmaking glitches to slaughter newbs like some of the more pathetic players.

Also, there is so obviously still EOMM even in ranked, if you have a good high kill game and win then your randoms for the next few games will be absolute trash. The pattern is too consistent to be anything other than deliberate EOMM fuckery.

pls any fucking fix for 100% cpu usage bug , its more than 3 months and not fixed yet.

ID: hfu8pur

Same here man. I tired of this shit.

We are looking into it - Devs

The Bloodhound event is dumb. Cool concept, but dumb execution. Running around very specific parts of ONE of the THREE maps while having to play a specific character which is the same for EVERYBODY just resulted in solo drops, people quitting after not getting first pick on BH and generally pathetic behaviour.

7 : Anonymous2021/10/08 23:42 ID: hfx2201

Footstep audio in this game is a fucking disgrace

8 : Anonymous2021/10/09 01:28 ID: hfxf3g8

This is the 5th game in a row I've had both players on my trios crash. What the fuck is wrong with this game. I am constantly losing ranked games because I have no team

9 : Anonymous2021/10/08 18:49 ID: hfvxa8w

I've stuck with this game for years and now feel completely abandoned by respawn. I haven't been able to play for a month because of this banner pose bug and they just don't give a fuck about fixing it. Idiots

10 : Anonymous2021/10/09 23:21 ID: hg1fk9a

You know what’s not fun? Fighting against triple stack preds with 4k/20 bomb badges every single game. It’s funny how these people are supposed to be the pointy end of the spectrum, supposedly less than 1%, yet I have at least 2 squads in every single match. The EOMM is not designed for fun gameplay, even remotely.

ID: hg1olfl

It's absolutely bat shit insane right now. I used to have 12% winrate. Now 10 and falling still. Game after game after game now of having dudes not even do 75 damage I almost never even sniff a cooperative person doing 1K damage, and when I do they often glitch out or disconnect late in the game.

Never have I seen my life disappear more in 15 minute increments, and that is why I play less and less of this game.

When I hit 12% winrate, maybe a month ago, this game apparently decided that I had enough. Pretty much 20 bomb or at the very least competent Diamond squads in every server guaranteed. Apex is such a dogshit game when it's manipulated by algorithms.

I should be able to hear people coming from behind me ffs fix your audio

ID: hfzeu0x

You can hear fights 300 feet away but can’t hear them 6 feet behind you. That’s sad

If I get one more Bloodhound doing the quests in my squad I’m going to have a breakdown.


ID: hfvjxa3

I straight up leave the game if I get a BH on my team doing this shit.

ID: hfvixbg

Hey, no fill doesn't work all the time. I've been put multiple times in a squad trying to do the quest

13 : Anonymous2021/10/09 22:42 ID: hg1aqje

Game is unplayable. Constant freezing. Audio all over the place. Regular no regs. I’ve played 6 games today and froze in 4 of them. I wish I could give this dog shit game up.

14 : Anonymous2021/10/08 10:22 ID: hfu6j4h

For Veteran players, it’s been getting stale. No changes to ranked, Solo matchmaking is really bad, and the bugs are constant. Wish we’d Atleast get newer skins more often but most of them are recycled.

ID: hfuz2r8

I find it funny how Respawn said they had a 10 year plan for Apex given their horrendous track record with the Titanfall series.

TF2 is nearing 5 years old and it's practically dead because a ton of issues went unchecked for so long.

Under Respawn, Apex will suffer the same fate. The best they can do is sell it off to some competent studio and focus on a new franchise.

15 : Anonymous2021/10/09 17:03 ID: hg018mk

Game is literally unplayable, we have been crying for months for server fixes, and we get a bunch of "explanations" that just allow the devs to avoid the problem at all. We as a community cannot keep tolerating this. We must enter a community strike, and not spend a single cent in the next event. Until Respawn FIXES (not adress, but give us an actual fix) the servers issues, audio issues, and all the problems, before i even try to buy a cosmetic for a broken game.

16 : Anonymous2021/10/08 19:00 ID: hfvywoh

Servers are still hot garbage...This is getting old.

17 : Anonymous2021/10/08 22:58 ID: hfwwh6q

Does anyone else wish the map changes were more often? Getting on for 2 hrs and only playing kings canyon gives me map fatigue

18 : Anonymous2021/10/08 16:47 ID: hfvfvon

I realllllllyyyyy try to not complain about teammates but holy fuck.... some of these people are some of the dumbest people on the fucking planet.

ID: hfvo66x

The situational awareness of some people is staggering

ID: hfvtm43

I don’t mind but it puts you with them nearly every single game. How do they expect you to enjoy the game when no matter how well you play solo you virtually never win because it can’t match make correctly

19 : Anonymous2021/10/08 18:42 ID: hfvw9ud

How is the issue with disconnect on champion screen still not fixed!?

ID: hfvwzf7

its worse than ever

20 : Anonymous2021/10/09 16:45 ID: hfzytk2

Game STILL freezes after every second or third match. Random, honestly. I've taken off all my animated frames and poses but my teammates or, in Arenas, my opponents haven't seemed to get the memo.

ID: hg0261g

Taking off the animated frames IS NOT A SOLUTION. Respawn should take accountability and fix it right away. Even with more reason that there are PAID banner frames, that we cant use because it makes the game unplayable. Dont blame your opponents or teammates, its 100% Respawn's fault.

I trust a fart after Taco Bell more than my chances of connecting to a game in apex.

22 : Anonymous2021/10/09 16:12 ID: hfzu8ui

Fix 100% cpu usage

23 : Anonymous2021/10/09 17:18 ID: hg037va

I like how recycled LTMs is just the norm from Respawn now, what a joke.

24 : Anonymous2021/10/10 01:02 ID: hg1rv8y

Why won’t they fix the kick glitch? Why? It’s unplayable and I have had to restart almost every game and it’s been a problem for weeks. Can’t think of any other company that wouldn’t have this fixed the same day

25 : Anonymous2021/10/10 14:09 ID: hg3sh6b

Imagine how great Apex could have been in the hands of a competent team of devs. It would have outlasted any other game by far. As a day 1 player, it's sad to see it fall to what it is now.

26 : Anonymous2021/10/08 19:43 ID: hfw5b5f

Bro, it has been fucking WEEKS since Rampart’s event ended, why is this goddamn game still freezing in the “your squad” screen? Holy shit man.

I have unequipped the purple poses on all characters already. I am so fucking sick and tired of my game freezing just to be greeted with a “squad eliminated” message when I finally reconnect, or I’m downed in the middle of nowhere with one teammate disconnected and the remaining one with 1 HP in a corner somewhere. Jesus Christ.

Animated banner bug still crashing my games

28 : Anonymous2021/10/08 13:42 ID: hfuq38x

It’s been over a fucking week, how is the animated banner still crashing games

ID: hfvbtoq

You have to buy at least 5 legendary skins and then it corrects itself. -Respawn

29 : Anonymous2021/10/08 15:05 ID: hfv16ti

Just got abandoned penalty because i go stuck in the champion screen again... Why are they still creating new content when the game is in such a bad state?

ID: hfv313k

I know! Devs are awfully quiet in here recently, completely ignoring the fact that almost 50 percent of games people are being DC'ed. I can't even get back to lobby after a game - I have to restart the game like 3 or 4 times a session.

30 : Anonymous2021/10/08 15:49 ID: hfv7j9p

FFS This game’s matchmaking is so fuckin tiring. Constant players Lv 200 and lower back to back wtf I get it it’s not the bad players fault but WTF respawn This matchmaking’s complete dogshit.

31 : Anonymous2021/10/09 01:36 ID: hfxg28b

New update that only adds paid cosmetics avoiding every problem that plagues the game. Respawn is objectively morally bankrupt. Fuck this game and fuck Respawn. They deserve to go the way of visceral. Just absolute douechebag of a developer

32 : Anonymous2021/10/09 18:55 ID: hg0gcqp

This bloodhound mission is cool in theory but in execution half the server is waiting to kill you around every corner. I much much preferred those missions to assemble Ashe's head. The payoff from the BH quest was fantastic at least. It gives me hope for more singleplayer content in Apex in the future

33 : Anonymous2021/10/09 20:43 ID: hg0v0zy

Can a different studio take over please? These clowns at Respawn don't know what the fuck they're doing.

34 : Anonymous2021/10/10 10:05 ID: hg367ge

I rarely wish harm on anyone, but right now I kind of wish whoever designed the matchmaking system in this game stubbed their toe.

35 : Anonymous2021/10/08 21:05 ID: hfwh2jl

Seriously fuck this game and its garbage matchmaking. How many level 110 do I have to carry against pred/master stacks?
