I REALLY really wish there was a way to just turn someone’s mic volume up or down. Either I can’t hear a word they are saying or I can’t hear any gameplay because their mic is so loud
Imagine how much better this game could be if they just fixed the fucking audio!ID: ho1ynck
They obviously have no idea how to fix it. It's been screwed up for so long. Sad really.ID: ho21c0l
A lot of things have been screwed up. Every update they screw up more stuff.ID: ho269ul
They clearly have 0 clue, it's been 2+ years already.
Welcome to apex where you get killed by masters stack who gets killed by a pred stack who proceeds to gets third partied by a 20b/4k stack in a pub.ID: ho09rzn
Soloqueuers being pitted against premade teams is 100% the biggest reason why matchmaking has been so dogshit ever since Season 3. Apex is the only team-based game that purposefully does that even during peak times. Oh yeah, also the only BR without a solo mode.ID: ho087o9
Full minute of matchmaking. 156 people in queue.
Enough with the "I got a ten year timout" screenshots already.
Ill bite. I am a 39 year old manchild i have been playing apex pretty much non stop since 1/2 thru season 1. Dont mistake that for meaning i am any good at the game. I just enjoy playing alot and would really like a few consistent friends to play with that at least are down to try and play as a team older with a preferably decent mic. I have 2k badges on a few characters and like to play valk loba caustic lifeline or wattson. Down for constructive crit i play at 9pm pst almost every night on playstation. Stankpootie on psn
I miss events like the Grand Soiree. Third person mode, Armed and Dangerous, Gold Rush Duos... back when LTMs were fun and Respawn actually tried new things.
Since season 8's LTM disaster I'm finding it more and more likely that they'll never release a new LTM, ahem, takeover.
Something needs to be done about people who use strike pack. I'm positive that there can be some sort of way to detect it. Like a pistol, Hemlock, etc shouldn't be able to be fired that fast. I had a teammate in ranked arenas used it (there username literally was strikepack user) and I felt so bad for the enemy team. I made sure to call him a loser 😉 But im pretty sure I'm just gonna stop playing the game soon if it continues. Its so unfair and it's not fun at all to compete against someone who just bought hacks because there not good. Hell I remember strikepacks being sold at Walmart like wtf.
Sorry about the rant but it seems like everyday more and more ppl are using it and I'm so tired of it. Doesn't even seem like Microsoft or Sony has even tried anything. It's ruining alot of games, but especially Apex. Why practice and get better when you can just buy a cheap cheat..
Bad audio. Bad servers. Bad netcode. Bad matchmaking.
If you were curious there are still multiple pred/master three stacks in pubs at 5:30am on console.ID: ho0be8n
They don't have jobs, so this isn't a surprise.
I pulled off the perfect wallbounce at fragment and god it was everything I knew it could be. I didnt even think about why or what it just felt instinctive and the timing suddenly became perfect.
I just played the sweatiest pubs of my life holy shit. It actually felt like we were playing an algs game using heat shields in final ring. Pubs are insanely sweaty now lol
Go fuck yourself with your EOMM and Anti-cheat system Respawn.
Please update the frame rate on Xbox one. Also why is Winter Express so sweaty now?
I’m gonna be the first to admit that I suck at this game and am trying hard to get better, but I swear solo queuing in ranked pairs me with some of the dumbest peopleID: ho224v2
Solo queuing in general has been declining every season. 🙁ID: ho22jhj
It's because Respawn hates solo players. Little Timmy no thumbs can't be carried to a win in solos. So, he will not ask Mommy to buy him skins.ID: ho2292w
Welcome to the club!
Once you start getting paired with complete braindead morons, you have reached the average and above skilled level club lol
I'd love to see the backend numbers that support that the mass majority of players like both BR and Arena's and that's why they make events forcing us to play both.
I highly doubt that data exists so why the hell are they forcing us to play something we don't enjoy?
Load into a solo pub, looking at my level 22 and 35 teammate, and see 10 squads of diamond/mastedropping trails, seriously fuck your heavily biased and stale matchmaking
If you're a duo in Apex, don't treat your 3rd teammate like they're the enemy.....ID: ho5pi1z
Yeah what the fuck is with these people? We're a duo so we're gonna be absolute c'ts to the third and scream at them on microphone. I've joined duo's where they're calling me shit before I've even picked a legend. Hate these players.
Can we please for the love of God put "Tier Lists" in the "low-effort meme" category. They are so painfully stupid.
Mods should just pin that controller unable to ping deathbox and black market loot tweet, so people can stop posting or asking about it over and over.
Idk if anyone can help me with this but I’m trying to figure out how some people get this intro Quip for lifeline - “you know what’s scary, not having lifeline by your side”
Can’t seem to find it and it’s not the heirloom one. Would appreciate some help on thisID: hnzc4yt
I believe it was a part of the Halloween event last year!
It's always fun when you play with your friends, queue into a silver ranked game and get blasted by a lvl 17 player with 200 kills 🙂ID: ho1421k
Unfortunately, that is the beast Respawn created with their EOMM system.
Where are the OG respawn staff going and why?ID: ho11gf3
Cash cow Apex made them financially secure so they're going to start new development studios that, if successful, will be bought by EA and ruined like Respawn was.ID: ho12j6o
Getting off a sinking shipID: ho17wuk
Essentially what FootstepAudio said, honestly. They're leaving while Apex is still a hot and successful game. They have bragging rights to say they worked on such a successful game and they're taking advantage of it by landing raises at other companies.
There needs to be a PSA before every game that you don’t actually need to take every fight, diamond lobby solo queueee
Yesterday I got matched with two very low levels. We get into a fight and get 3rd partied so put down a portal. 1 guy kamikazes himself into a team and DCs. The other goes down but does use the portal so I res him. We end up surviving somehow and only 1 other squad left lol.
We run up some hill and get shot from behind, the guy (fuse) shoots in front of him instead and nearly ults in front of him as well. Had to spam ping for him to look the other way
I start beaming down the hill downing 2 of them while the fuse is getting shot at by the other dude while standing out in the open. I ping a bat, doesn’t pick it up, I tell him to heal, doesn’t do that, then get rushed by a no footstep bloodhound that ulted. I die, fuse dies 0,5 seconds later.
Like, bless him its not his fault but wtf is this shit lol. This was pubs but still. The better I become the more frustrating soloq gets.ID: ho2cxik
Yep, with Respawn's EOMM system, you are punished for getting better.ID: ho2frpt
I got a level 6 who literally didn't know his controls or what he was doing. He'd scan randomly while looking at the ground. He'd ping randomly despite no one being there.
The kicker? I'm a diamond 1 player. How the hell can they continue to lie and say EOMM doesn't exist? Either it exists or SBMM is a pile of steaming shit.
fuck your matchmaking 🙂
It's amazing how bad the teammates I get can get. Had one that somehow god knows how remained alive the entire game and did 36 damage total. 36 ! How ?? Had about 80 times that...
Winter Express >>>>>>>> Arenas
Reminder that the mods deleted a thread with 3,000 comments yesterday after it had been up for hours. Their reasoning was that “low-effort or low-quality posts hinder meaningful discussion from flourishing…”. Meanwhile, there’s 3,000 comments. The only thing that hinders meaningful discussion on this sub are the mods themselves.
Reminder that this sub was set up beforehand by the devs and then carefully handed off to someone that was hand picked by Respawn themselves (but I’m sure it’s still a community run subreddit lol).
Reminder that if you ask the mods to let the community decide the direction of this sub, they’ll tell you that the community doesn’t get to decide how a community run subreddit is run (the sub calls itself a community run, developer supported subreddit. What a load of crock that is).
i remember someone saying this like a year ago but it would be cool to see the banners of the people you killed at the end of the gameID: hnzckvn
I'd love a post game map that traces your path and where you got kills, and it shows their banners
❌ Functional audio
❌ Reasonable matchmaking
❌ Modern tickrate
❌ Non-ripoff cosmetics
❌ Ranked mode that measures skill
lmao everyone running triple takes and snipers in pubs is getting out of hand
