Anyone have problems with loot on the new map. Perhaps it's because the POIs are so big. Way too often I can find r99 and like only 20-40 light ammo. Also I must admit it might be because I don't know the map and POIs well enough.

Also do you think lack of jump towers is a huge mistake? Gravity cannons are fun but it's not the best option when you need to move to the ring.

You know those buildings that are like pods connect with tunnels and have life jackets in them? They have pathetically few loot for buildings that size. The mud huts have the same problem. Loot distribution really is terrible on this map. Good thing I decided to keep maining Loba this season.

If you are at best relatively average at this game (Plat and below/have a non serial quitter KDR of 0.8 - 1.2) and want to play for some fun, do yourself a favour and play Ranked. You'll have more fun and not just be fodder for the top 5% of players that will make up 30 to 40% of your pub lobbies.

If you want to sweat, play pubs.

Sweatiness by mode for the average player : Ranked BR < Trios < Duos ≤ Arenas (both)

ID: hjf84bs

Really? I've not played much ranked. Is it seriously better than pubs? I've been having a rough time so far this season in pubs.

ID: hjflaez

Honestly, I think it is... mostly I'm pretty much the kind of player the guy you're replying to said, Usually around Plat 4 to 2 with a KDR that hovers around 1 to 1.1.

I'm pretty much a tasty meal for Masters and Pred stacks in pubs, however sometimes I definitely fight a team that's below my skill level.

Ranked does feel more even, minus the occasional smurf, but I feel like I have to deal with a lot of Diamond or ex Diamond players who are better than me but more manageable than fucking Preds.

Anybody else getting absolutely destroyed all the time? I mean like peaking out for 5 seconds and being absolutely murdered? My friends and I are being absolutely destroyed compared to last season. Coming up against people landing 3 or 4 headshots in a row when I can’t reliably het head shots at all. Yes, I suck, I know, I don’t need to be told that, nor do I want to practice in the range, I just want to play with friends an hour or two each week.

ID: hjibfl9

Casual is pred pre-made hunting ground pretty much, think the design of EOMM is about 9 hard game 1 easy game.

Ranked is flooded with de-ranked good players at the beginning and then smurfs at later time, either way average player get stomped 90% of the time.

ID: hji9fv6

that's because ppl's ranks got reset got stuck in your pool. They'll eventually move on and you'll get back in your skill level.

5 : Anonymous2021/11/05 19:07 ID: hjgaf7d

Does no one miss a shot anymore? Seems like it to me. Getting hit from across the map no matter how much bobbing and weaving I'm doing.

6 : Anonymous2021/11/06 02:27 ID: hji2ll6

Playing solo trios is like turning off teammates. They leave immediately, are afk or don't know know how to play the game while I get shit on by 3 stack preds

7 : Anonymous2021/11/05 13:30 ID: hjev4zu

Its honestly so fucking hard to not get angry or mad when solo queuing this game is probably the most annoying game I've ever played

ID: hjexnm6

I feel this lol. Thing is, I love the characters and interactions between them, the game mechanics, the new map but trying to play without a premade squad is an absolutely miserable experience

Lmao we gotta deal with this nasty ass matchmaking and the fucking prowlers? Cmon son.

fuck your matchmaking.

Loot is so terrible on the new map. Constantly running through three different buildings just to come out with an attachment and ultimate accel.

11 : Anonymous2021/11/06 07:25 ID: hjivhjv

This map is so weird. Third parties aren't as bad as other maps BUT almost every game I played today somehow 2 teams attack at the same time from different angles that's how I die. Also not hearing footsteps is even worse this season somehow. Get rolled up on behind so many damn times without hearing anything.

Arrows are a waste of loot pool because Bocek Bow is the only weapon that use arrows.

ID: hjh3ygz

It's a perfect care package weapon imo

13 : Anonymous2021/11/05 13:03 ID: hjerq4p

can we talk about how bad the battlepass is it looks like season 1 battlepass the legendary skins are even bad no time put into it clearly, and all i get is legendary emotes from packs noow

14 : Anonymous2021/11/05 11:08 ID: hjefwo3

Please if your using Ash look at your map and ping where people died would be helpful to know where the enemies are

ID: hjf9crr

It took me a few matches to realize that Ash can see all deathboxes pop up on her map and minimap. Based on the description, I thought you could only manually interact with a deathbox you stand in front of. Others might not know about this feature either.

15 : Anonymous2021/11/05 15:43 ID: hjfehrr

What if we had all 4 maps on rotation, 2 at a time and you can pick between those two. For example: 1h of KC or SP and then 1h of WE or Olympus. Isn’t there enough players to make something like that work? Warzone has a LOT of different game modes active all the time. Isn’t the player count similar there? Or is it just server issues?

16 : Anonymous2021/11/05 18:44 ID: hjg6owg

7 out of 10 champions are masters and preds, i dont see that much red even when i play bloodhound, the loot is shit, the map looks beutiful but its kinda hard to enjoy the game when i run for 10 mins, have a fight and then run again for 10 and die, the least enjoyable season in months.

17 : Anonymous2021/11/05 21:49 ID: hjh01wa

Dear Respawn,

Louder footstep audio doesn't automatically mean better footsteps audio.


18 : Anonymous2021/11/05 13:23 ID: hjeu8fc

Ash's ultimate is completely silent and I'm finding the blue trail hard to see during fights, so I'm getting snuck up on so often by the team I'm literally staring at down my 2-4x. I assumed the trail is the same as Wraith's but I've definitely seen hers around.

19 : Anonymous2021/11/06 03:22 ID: hji94us

Pls increase weapon spawn rate on stormpoint

20 : Anonymous2021/11/06 10:40 ID: hjja4rs

Anybody want to explain why I had 2 Preds, 5 masters (one 3-stacked squad) and 6 diamonds in my Bronze lobby? We are all Bronze 4 due to decay, I got Plat 1 in Season 8 and plat 4 in season 9. The other two got plat 4 in split 1 of last season but gave up ranked in the 2nd split. In what possible realm would any competent matchmaking process consider throwing us into the mix with a 3-stacked master squad and 2 Preds?

The longer I play this game, the more I think the matchmaking is just made up. You can't justify this level of bullshit.

21 : Anonymous2021/11/05 14:56 ID: hjf7dvt

My favorite locations (so far) are:

A) the place that looks like a fishing village, with the big, wooden waterwheel
B) the hella beautiful cenote cave at the beach, there are only a few houses but the view is phenomenal

22 : Anonymous2021/11/06 01:53 ID: hjhy7id

Ranked is u playable why don’t you start preds at masters masters at diamond diamond at play and plat at gold this is absolutely unreal

ID: hjhyami

It’s an ongoing shitshow that constantly give you a headache playing. Against every fucking rank it’s literally fucked

Add surrender button in arenas

24 : Anonymous2021/11/05 15:40 ID: hjfdzww

In no other map EVER do i have no weapon starts so consistent. Can't count how many times i was running from house to house without ANYTHING.

Solo Qing any mode is fucking ass.

Inb4: muhhh LFG.

Imagine telling someone they should play Apex for the first time, but then saying you have to Discord people to have a good time. Shut the fuck up.

ID: hjewbuf

I haven't LFG for over a year for the exact reason of matchmaking being shit. Nothing worse than getting stomped on together 10 games in a row with someone you just meet. It's just plain awkward

ID: hjfsul9

Super excited for the new map, I cannot win a single match with the luck I have. I get paired with bots all the time. 0 damage players, and the champion squad is a triple stack 20 bomb 4k damage ash with 120 kills. Wtf.

ID: hjg1fvd

I have one win in 80 games on this map solo. It's ridiculous, so I just focus on getting kills. I can already imagine my win rate being around 2-3% this season on SP.

On other maps I had around 6%.

Pity lobbies are so obvious now I actually gave enemy Gibby a jump pad to escape and get revived

27 : Anonymous2021/11/06 09:43 ID: hjj5nxb

This was a quality fucking update tbh

28 : Anonymous2021/11/06 11:44 ID: hjjfjj3

Personal opinion: smooth launch gj on that, the map is way too big with huge open areas slowing the game down and turning it into a sniper party however. The loot distribution is absolute hot garbage, sound is horrible I get no audio’d on constantly but hear my teammates from a mile away. I was honestly hyped for this update but SP is my least favorite map atm (for the record I’m on pc and mostly play ranked)

29 : Anonymous2021/11/06 15:44 ID: hjk8z7q

We need to make the Ultimate Ash sight visible. I never see where I'm teleporting to.

30 : Anonymous2021/11/06 15:48 ID: hjk9h6y

The vertical ziplines need to be fixed. I can't tell you how many times I've had to go up the zipline because I wasn't facing the right direction once I reached the top.

Anyone else have a lot of trouble finding a gun on the jump?

32 : Anonymous2021/11/06 20:31 ID: hjlctrf

Say it with me. During an escape, if I get shot, we can’t fly out. Attach to my ult so we can escape being pinched

33 : Anonymous2021/11/06 01:31 ID: hjhvf8b

I’m consistently doing DOUBLE the damage of my random teammates COMBINED. Matchmaking is fucking ass

34 : Anonymous2021/11/05 16:49 ID: hjfouse

Here’s my thoughts on what should be changed in the new map:

-The drop ship should move faster to distribute the players around the map instead of one side.

-The loot distribution should be increased a lot.

-The ring timer should decrease each time a squad dies so it doesn’t feel like looting simulator half of the match.

-The ring placement should be on the north side more.

The first battle pass that I seriously couldn’t care any less about purchasing.

People who leave their mics on and have a bunch of background noise. Are you trying to be annoying? Doesn’t it defeat the purpose of having a mic if you’re just going to be muted because you’re annoying?

37 : Anonymous2021/11/06 12:52 ID: hjjmdnu

I feel like the buildings don't have an intuitive design. I often have to look for doors or stairs whereas in the other maps the buildings had a simple design. Some of the buildings on SP have these weird side rooms with some item in them and you can't go anywhere but back the same way you came. Feels very odd and not the excellent design I've come to expect from Respawn. They also have unnecessary hallways with no items in them.

Anyone else feel this way?

ID: hjk7ul9

Yeah a lot of the buildings are kinda weird, but i'm hoping it's just case of learning them. There seems to be more than 1 or 2 designs though.

38 : Anonymous2021/11/06 01:22 ID: hjhu7me

The loot in this map is ass.
