Friendly reminder of all the things considered 'broken' in Apex

Animated banners causing people to crash as well as their teammates

Game crashes related to the use of crypto's drone

Freezes and disconnects possibly tied to the aforementioned banner problems though some have persisted into the menus

Instances of OST's being played randomly in game, overpowering all other audio

Audio cutting out completely in game

HUD elements and game assets not loading in game

Introduction of code:snake ban has caused wrongful temporary suspensions

Account award tracking issues

Connection issues causing input registration problems (The Gaming Merchant)

*This one's my favorite* Wattson's ultimate not functioning properly with throwables

Legends changing upon being respawned

New wave of DDoS attacks

Unwarranted high use of PC resources

Excessive RP loss tied to botched matchmaking system and aforementioned disconnections

Unready-up bug in lobby

Character select screen assets not loading in

Arenas ranked and unranked matchmaking, or complete lack there of

So there is a Wattson ult glitch? I could swear it wasn't defeating projectiles thrown at me from certain angles or something.

ID: hgs4x2u

I would suggest adding "absolutely piss poor audio in every way" to this list.

I played for an hour and I got wrecked by masters/preds/players with +15k kills every single time. I'm not exaggerating: every single match.

I go to gold ranked and a Bangalore with 40k kills destroys me in seconds. Wtf is going on?? Are these people the only ones playing the game??????

ID: hgq62o6

No, but if matchmaking continues to be this shitty, they soon will be... people are pretty much being bullied out of the game by a matchmaker that endlessly puts them against opponents that are out of their league

ID: hgqijiy

There's a good chance you fall into the category of skill level called fucked.

Not good enough to challenge masters/preds, not unskilled enough for the others to challenge you.

Anyone else find it hilarious, in a kind of sad way, that "events" now just mean we're going to sell you more stuff? No new modes or gameplay types; just events where you can buy something from our store. Is the game nearing it's end? I just don't understand how they have allowed it to get this stale. I can't help but think the addition of Arenas really hurt the game by dividing developers and making it so no new fun LTM's would happen.

If you still spend money on this game you have Stockholm syndrome.

Fix your matchmaking. I say this every week but you never do. Typical

I stopped playing Apex this season, because I forgot games need to be fun first.

Now I'm more relaxed and I'm actually enjoying the other games I play.

9 : Anonymous2021/10/16 02:22 ID: hgtd8nf

I don't even have 10k kills total and get matched against players with over 70k kills on one character. What kind of skill based matchmaking is that?

ID: hgth39j

It's EOMM. You are being punished for having 1 or 2 good games.

10 : Anonymous2021/10/16 03:55 ID: hgtmwtc

This matchmaking is seriously the dumbest thing ever. Just had two straight games with a random teammate who had 0 damage after two fights with teams…0 DAMAGE…I feel like I could play with my monitor turned off and get more than 0 damage.

11 : Anonymous2021/10/15 20:06 ID: hgs3hrp

Please... just fix the freezing... I can’t go 2 games without having to restart, sometimes freezing 3 times in a row. For the love of god, I know we all complain a lot, but it truly is unacceptable for a game to be like this. This is literally the “literally unplayable” meme incarnate.

I've pretty much given up on playing. Can't play with friends because one of us will be suffering all the issues at once basically. Playing solo is equivalent to pulling your nails completely out without anesthesia. Only priority for Respawn seems to be skins. Events are lame as fuck compared to previous seasons, skins being forced into bundles can suck my ass and this constant need for Arenas to be part of everything can also piss off. This game's gonna end up exactly like TF2 with Respawn at the head.

It's really quite amazing that it only took about 4 seasons for Apex to go from the best game ever to being one of those rubber pads you see in urinals. If only it could have been in the hands of a competent dev team.

15 : Anonymous2021/10/15 15:19 ID: hgqxsnt

I know peoples experiences are subjective and differ but I can't believe I'm reading people say they have no issues (on here & Twitter) whilst every single game for the past two weeks I've had to reset at the start and the end of every single game.

16 : Anonymous2021/10/15 18:07 ID: hgrmcd7

Tried playing today again, still constant freezing and rubberbanding, and not only for me, people would randomly stop moving and shooting, got way more kills from that than I should've.

Praying for fix next season.

Apex in game experience is like a horror comedy.

Hey, Randy's not illegal to move or duck when you're being shot at.

Ranked is a joke and needs serious attention.

The cap on KP in ranked needs to go. It's a dumb limit that ruins matches. If someone can get 20 kills in a single silver match, then need to get out of silver ASAP.

The auto demotion at ranked split needs a floor, too. Diamonds should never ever be able to fall all the way to bronze.

20 : Anonymous2021/10/16 09:16 ID: hgubsgn

Sound is at its worst state ever. Especially on KC. I get jumped by full teams without even realising because I couldn't hear shit. They make zero sounds until they're literally in front of you. And I play with phones. Then the voices are so fuckin loud and they distract me in the worst moment. Really the equalisation is awful! I try to listen if someone is approaching and then ultra loud some bullshit from the characters or the announcer "RING IS CLOSING"

21 : Anonymous2021/10/15 12:50 ID: hgqe1mn

We’re over one month out from Respawn almost killing the entire game (and it’s still pretty buggy) over a virtual wrench. The lack of communication during this time also needs to be remembered. It’s so sad seeing the game going down the drain right after it was finally getting the respect/attention it deserved. EA/Repsawn are masters in how to kill a game.

22 : Anonymous2021/10/15 17:46 ID: hgrj8u5

Finally getting constant game crashes, code:snake. 89% CPU usage as well. Fucking incredible. It's been like what, almost a month since the update and the game is still fucking broken. Incredible stuff. Season 11 I'm just expecting the game to automatically delete itself my from computer.

23 : Anonymous2021/10/15 22:54 ID: hgspdlc

this game is impossible to enjoy on weekends if u play solo.

24 : Anonymous2021/10/15 23:34 ID: hgsu41t

How is this game in a worse state than it's ever been? It's a literal travesty at this point. Every other game someone in my party fails to join or the game freezes.

25 : Anonymous2021/10/15 19:10 ID: hgrvkgq

Small tip: You should play Apex Monday-Thursday because on the WEEKENDS the game experience is horrible.

Congrats to EA for fucking up another game that actually had a huge chance for millions of people to play

27 : Anonymous2021/10/17 12:36 ID: hgz7ltu

Play game. Die since I was unable to hear a team jump padding because music is blasting in my ear. Load up another game. Stuck at loading screen. Have to restart. -36 RP -36 abandon penalty. Great game

28 : Anonymous2021/10/15 14:42 ID: hgqsh7q

This game has really gone downhill. I can't believe how Respawn is just letting it die. Bugs not getting fixed (unless it involves the store), horrendous EOMM, no real LTM's, not demanding EA fix servers, never addressing the community unless they are selling you something and letting cheaters run rampant. As a day 1 player, it is really sad watching Apex gone down like this.

29 : Anonymous2021/10/15 15:46 ID: hgr1nhj

Anybody else getting a lot of no register hits again? I get the sound effect, visual effect of hitting shields but no damage counters.

Also I kind of like the bug with the music playing in the last circle. You can't hear shit, but nobody else can either it's very cinematic lol. I was on the top of runoff with a Kraber and as the circle is getting tiny this very dramatic music comes in. Kind of like how in Halo ODST the music changes when you engage enemies.

30 : Anonymous2021/10/16 04:19 ID: hgtp6nn

Matchmaking is horrible right now. Eight straight games where we ran into squads with 50k kills plus. Half of those matches had about 6-7 squads with stats like those too as we kept seeing kill leader squads flip in the feed.

It cultivated in the last match before we called it quits where it put is against the number 1 wattson in the world queued up with a 100k kill wraith and a 6 time pred lifeline. They literally just pushed everyone with no fear.

Like I get that some of these lobbies we're actually balanced from a top tier vs top tier perspective, but why in the hell am I in there other than just being fodder to further pad their stats?

ID: hgtq1n9

They crank the EOMM up to the max on weekends. No point in trying to play.

Nothing feels worse than trying to play endgame on ranked and the goddamn lobby music starts playing and destroying any sense of what’s going on around you. For the love of fucking Christ PLEASE FIX THIS FUCKING GAME

33 : Anonymous2021/10/17 13:53 ID: hgzg1xa

Does anyone else get tired of being forced to play arenas for the event badges? Why not let players get these in whatever game mode they like the best?

34 : Anonymous2021/10/15 22:22 ID: hgslc6p

I'm convinced that they purposely fuck soloQ players with this matchmaking. Im only getting killed by 20k badge guys. Its not recency bias because i fucking take notes lol. Game is a punishing chore.

EDIT: It was early last season when i had one of these guys in my team also. Insane.

35 : Anonymous2021/10/16 22:20 ID: hgwvl45

I dont know what the fuck is up with weekends but I swear THAT's when the matchmaking and lobbies become practically impossible, the amount of 50k-100k and above Preds that I get destroyed by makes no sense. 3 minutes in a game ,first ring not even closing and it's down to 5-7 teams.

How the fuck is that balanced and fair?

This game is garbage sometimes. You either get 0 teammates or when you do get teammates, they die and quit in the first 10 seconds of the game.

Fix SBMM Fix Sound Don't give us yet another rly bad designed Season Instead of releasing another bad designed Season fix the game. I would even love to pay the Battle Pass for fixing major game design bugs. Get rid of forcing ppl to play Arena, they don't want to play that gamemode Sound volume is off in different sound effects. SOmetimes they blow out your mind sometimes they're too silent Please, please make Anti Cheat better. It's the worst Easy Anti Cheat implementation I have ever seen in a game!

Someone should let them know white screen flashes happen occasionally in a fast and disorienting fashion during character selection. I'm not epileptic and still got annoyed by it.

42 : Anonymous2021/10/15 20:53 ID: hgs9ww5

Just a monstrous, gigantic, unreal number of cheaters in the game. They're just all swarming around. How can even play this shit?

43 : Anonymous2021/10/16 01:31 ID: hgt7hbf

We all know the current state of the game will remain till the new season. Maybe we'll even get some new exciting bugs in the ltm in the last week. But what's going to be funny is seeing all this frustration disappeare once they start teasing s11

ID: hgt7tw7

Wanna bet season 11 is even worse?
