Helpful information to include in your LFG comment:



Game Mode (casual/duos/ranked/firing range)

If ranked, what rank?

Time Zone/Region

Special requests (chill, sweaty tryhard, mic/no mic, Discord, 1v1, etc..)

I hope that Respawn will add a new ltm in s11. Its been so long since we had a completely new ltm.

ID: hiiwseg

A "new " LTM mode even if it's recycled would be dope. I'd love if they brought back 3rd Person mode again.

ID: hiixzvp

I'd love if they brought back 3rd Person mode again.

No thanks!

ID: hiihar6

They should just say fuck it and do an event where literally everything is gold. That would be insane and awesome

ID: hiikocl

Armed & dangerous season 2 was all gold snipers and shotguns, that was pretty crazy, teams full of the original Care Package Mastiff and the Kraber. (I think they brought it back but not all weapons were gold? I can’t remember, there’s been a lot happen in the game over 2.5 years!)

Random teammate with a mic “You got a mic?“

Also that same teammate with a mic

*Doesn’t call out anything

4 : Anonymous2021/10/29 17:44 ID: hijfp7t

Why do people highlight a character then not pick them, are they just trying to fuck with people? Lol. I give up my main thinking you want to pick them, just for you to pick someone else

ID: hijqoeh

When playing with random teammates, always choose selfishness. Unfortunately, you won't be let down as much on Apex.

ID: hik6vd7

I appreciate and understand your unselfish team play, but sadly you're gonna come across idiots 8/10 times. Play the percentages and just play your game.

Sweats are out in full force probably cause of the new season starting. And I’m in every single one for their lobbies. Cool sbmm

6 : Anonymous2021/10/29 16:09 ID: hij0wtu

Can I get an explanation on why I get several teammates in their first placement match when I'm Plat 4?

Edit: I am indeed referring to Arenas

ID: hij1vq6

Does it matter? Plat 4 lobbies are filled with people who I don't know HOW THEY EVER GOT TO PLAT 4. Splitting on drop, choosing to fight a separate team in the middle of a team fight, not rushing to kill a Respawn in process.

I'm honestly shocked how some people got to plat, FFS.

ID: hij2vkt

They’re referring to Ranked Arenas not BR, but you’re not wrong tho lol

ID: hijb19v

Lol you can literally camp to plat. Get at least one or two kills, last long enough. Easy points.

7 : Anonymous2021/10/29 16:32 ID: hij4hnu

I played Shadow Royale for the first time, opened up a loot bin and this spider jumps out at me. Lmao when I tell you I almost died of a heart attack. After opening thousands of loot bins, I just didn’t expect some shit to jump out at me. This is why I don’t play scary games btw lmao.

ID: hijlr23

RIP that kid who has arachnophobia that posted the other day

Over two and a half years in, incomplete squads are still a thing.

9 : Anonymous2021/10/29 17:39 ID: hijeuuq

Has anybody thought about ash and rev being the new revtane. With revs totem and ash’s ability to instantly be in a another place most people won’t even see it coming

10 : Anonymous2021/10/29 19:39 ID: hijx7gb

Why do people play Lifeline and Mirage in Arenas if they not going to take advantage of their res passive and get a gold backpack... Like there is honestly no excuse for playing these 2 champs in Arenas and not buying a Gold backpack by Round 3? Only excuse is to say you are a Noob... Its harsh, but I said it!

11 : Anonymous2021/10/29 19:06 ID: hijs7s7

is there a smurf queue for ranked?

The people in bronze are fucking insane compared to my diamond games....

12 : Anonymous2021/10/29 20:03 ID: hik0vto

PSA: The enemy spotted ping is not a super ping. Using it to show where you're going/marking an item/etc just confuses things so Knock it the fuck off please use the appropriate pings

13 : Anonymous2021/10/29 14:31 ID: hiim7zz

I'll miss Rigney. His transparency was sorely needed. Hopefully the new comms people will be as transparent as reasonably possible and not lash out.

ID: hiisbdg

So many people left this is crazy

14 : Anonymous2021/10/29 16:57 ID: hij8bz2

If you're not gonna land where the JM and your other teamate decide then you should queue no-fill. I don't mind landing away from the action sometimes but I'm not gonna sit at an empty POI for 10 minutes because you're afraid to rotate into a fight.

15 : Anonymous2021/10/29 18:31 ID: hijmvjl

Anyone else feel like they’ve “peaked” in ability? I want to get better so badly but just keep getting wrecked, I have about a 1.2 kd and as I get better so does everyone else. I’m not getting “better” I’m just treading water

16 : Anonymous2021/10/29 18:32 ID: hijn356

How can I spot the “real” mirage

ID: hijw35p

Last to become visible

17 : Anonymous2021/10/29 19:25 ID: hijuxv5

Can you try to balance ranked teams.

1 good player + 2 noobs does not equal the same skill as 3 average players.

Also, a team of 2 good players is not the same as 3 average players.

It seems like my ranked teams are always me with a solo pusher, a noob, a loote


I would like to play more games with competent players more often rather than grinding through 5 loses of ranked before being paired with decent players.


18 : Anonymous2021/10/29 20:31 ID: hik53xz

Pings like bloodhound information or attack and loot pings should go in the chat instead of the kill feed. It’s far to easy for it to get lost.

19 : Anonymous2021/10/29 20:44 ID: hik75rr

I really hope that the release of this season is smooth. Everything about this patch just seems great, just hope they stick the landing

20 : Anonymous2021/10/29 13:34 ID: hiie9st

Reached platinum yesterday, very happy! Diamond for 2nd split Next season feels in reach.

21 : Anonymous2021/10/29 16:05 ID: hij0dft

I fucking hate the mouth-breathers who play this game with their mics activated but don't say a word the entire game. PSA: turn your mic off if you're not going to talk. I'm tired of hearing you pant like a dog the entire game.

I don't want to just disable voice chat, but I'm seriously considering it.

ID: hijrgd2

Or the people who have a mic but choose not to use it until they're dead due to a bad decision. Then, (rather than turning their mic on to communicate and be helpful at the start) they turn it on to tell you you suck and you're the reason they died. Then, you get to the summary page and see they did a whole 61 damage lmao. Solo queue is a slippery slope.

ID: hij2mgd

omg i can’t stand these people

22 : Anonymous2021/10/29 13:24 ID: hiicyka

Very sad that a year post launch, we still don’t have a the next-gen update for Apex. Also very sad we don’t have custom games yet. Those are the only new items of content I’ve wanted the whole year of 2021.

ID: hiidv06

Customs came out for ALGS teams this week. They're close.

23 : Anonymous2021/10/29 10:52 ID: hihwsar

I missed out on Shadow Royale last year, but dear god is this the best LTM I've played in this game.

Weirdly I rarely used the wall running tho, KC isn't really built for it.

I would like WE S3/S4 to be added to the map pool to spice it up

ID: hijryou

I played for the first time last night and didn’t know what to expect.

Team got downed and was headed over to them and next thing I know this dark figure comes out of nowhere and starts beating the shit out of me. I was so caught off guard he ended me no problem.

I was laughing too hard to even be remotely upset.


24 : Anonymous2021/10/29 16:00 ID: hiizhw5

little preview of this thread next week:

“why do my stupid teammates keep hot dropping cascade falls? i just wanna land gale station and loot til we all find red armor, is that too much to ask?”

ID: hij02z5

Or "why do my idiot noob trash panda team mates keep dropping cold, I dont wanna play loot simulator, everyone should just land right with me and follow all of my orders that I am telepathically sending them because I dont wanna actually use my mic, unless of course they make me lose, then I'll jump on and call them a racial slur to make myself feel better"

Either one

Tips for getting out of platinum? I'm stuck :')

ID: hii5j8s

A tip I learned from


Prelonged fights should be abandoned , you'll get third partied.

ID: hii2t9n

Kill 1 team, stay alive. Pick fights correctly. But King's canyon map is hard, you can't fight too long. Fight a team for about 1 minute, there will be 3rd party.

26 : Anonymous2021/10/29 10:48 ID: hihwekw

I've been having some really good games lately, but every game goes two ways. Either someone disconnects immediately upon landing and it's a flop, or things get heated and we strive for top 5. I really do think I'm finding some kind of groove and my kill count and participation are much, much higher.

I know it's not relatable, but other than disconnecters, I've been having some pretty good teammates lately. My friends are all the types of people that are afraid to go in, never have the initiative or advantage in any fight or want to stand there for two minutes having a useless snipe out until we get third partied. Randoms are so much more aggressive and high-engagement, and I've learned that I really love a brisk gameplay style.

27 : Anonymous2021/10/29 12:27 ID: hii5vfo

Does anyone use overwolf or the apex tracker app? Is it bannable? I've seen mixed things on reddit.

ID: hiihk8m

Last Apex tracker app said I was in the top .1% of Lobas so I don't think those things are reliable

28 : Anonymous2021/10/29 15:08 ID: hiirqf4

I just made the mistake of logging in and playing for a bit. Holy fuck, Friday afternoon / evening is still the worst time of the week to play.

29 : Anonymous2021/10/29 15:16 ID: hiisv8o

Now that RK has left Respawn, I predict Jay Biebs leaves next. I’m actually curious to see what happens Apex with all of these departures.

30 : Anonymous2021/10/29 16:24 ID: hij36xa

Anyone know if the free bangalore trackers are still available?

31 : Anonymous2021/10/29 19:33 ID: hijw69m

Crypto def is next after wattson, that man is dead as a character in terms of pick rate
