It's a bit depressing that we can look at free talk weekend from one year ago and see that the top comments are still relevant. Bad servers, fix matchmaking, fix sound etc.

Come on Respawn, isn't it time you gave Apex some love?

Edit: Free talk weekend January 15th 2021

Literally all the issues complained in there still remain. I used to live this game and dev team. I pray for another game to come out that scratches that itch fro me like Apex does. I want to be done with this abusive relationship.

ID: hsmvjph

You could probably run it back a whole other year to 2020 and it'd still be the same lmao

Some of you have such breathtaking levels of unearned confidence that it is actually inspiring.

I want to live the kind of life that would let me believe that going up that zip-line in the middle of antenna ,into a room where a bloodhound scan has just showed me there were eight people, will end up with me walking out victorious and not dead in half a second.

ID: hsm2loc

Sadly people will throw every match when it's "pubs", then go on and do the same in ranked because "it's not diamond".

New support legend is long overdue.

plz respawn.

5 : Anonymous2022/01/14 08:53 ID: hsluugp

Can we please get different ranked rewards in the future?! I reached Diamond 3 times, for me there is no reason to reach Diamond for the 4th time because the only thing i get is another Badge and trail. Why can’t we get for example an unique skin or something which makes it worth to reach a certain rank again

I can’t believe how long I’ve been sleeping on the mastiff and hemlok…If you hit them right they’re so goddamn satisfying

That 102 with a mastiff hits different

I am just waiting for next season teasers. This season is over.

8 : Anonymous2022/01/15 15:19 ID: hsruqon

What the fuck is this matchmaking? I’ve played eight games this afternoon, and collectively across those games my teammates have TWO kills. Two kills across 16 players is horrible.

Edit: make that 9 games, 18 players with 2 kills between them. The last game had a plat 4/gold 4 duo that broke off, died instantly and flamed me. I’m done for the day.

9 : Anonymous2022/01/15 03:27 ID: hspx7mv

Hey, can we start banning these "wrong answer only" and the "ask us loba main any question and we will not get offended" type posts. They are low effort and take away from any actual discussion about the game.

10 : Anonymous2022/01/14 14:39 ID: hsmsocz

Can we talk about the current gaming narrative for veteran and new players? I don’t understand the goal here as far as why are we playing the game. Too many times I get on ranked and my teammates (randoms) hot drop with the entire lobby just to find no gun and lose my BP :/

I’m not saying being a loot demon and avoiding every fight but no one is smart enough to know when to get distance and when to engage, flanking or watching a battle before going head first just to get third partied by the squad who was watching the same gun fight. I mean players should know their skill level. I know I couldn’t take a team of apex predators but I know I can make a difference by getting in damage and taking cover while hoping my teammates apply enough pressure while I heal and reload.

It’s a battle royale so the end goal should be attaining first place instead of trying to be the highest damage or dropping 30 bombs. I’m not the best player but I’m definitely not the worst I would expect teammates to not drop Fragment AGAIN after being decimated by the entire lobby before first ring close.

I dont understand how people pick Wraith and never make portals. Like your teammates are down... get us the fuck out of there!

ID: hsn30so

she's one of those characters that a lot of players only seem to pick for the tactical, rather than the whole kit.

ID: hsn49jf

Yup same with octane. The amount of ranked team mates that use the pad while rotating to catch up to me because they needed to spend the extra 2 mins looting.

12 : Anonymous2022/01/14 16:24 ID: hsn8kw1

yikes.... why do so much people queue up afk in ranked arenas

13 : Anonymous2022/01/15 09:41 ID: hsqx7qe

Game has literally never been in a worse state. Servers are so trash atm and the sbmm makes it impossible to win a game.

ID: hsr0be6

SBMM is so painful. I've seen premade preds and masters in trios as a hardstuck plat. What bullshit. Somehow my squad made it to final 2 against that pred squad and we got aped so hard.

< Start ranked

< Get a Crypto Teammate

< Land Big Maud

< Crypto sits on drone while me and other barely wipe 3 squads

< Crypto pushes a lava city team after not looting a single item beyond his gun, not even shield

< Goes down immediately, spam pings

< Leaves early, free RP

GG Crypto, GG

Does anyone actually like having prowlers around?

16 : Anonymous2022/01/14 15:25 ID: hsmzhza

I just picked up my first Rampage after the patch. It was already charged up!! I don't know how it happened. It was after the drop and nobody else had it before. So yea. it is still broken.

Welcome to Apex

Arena is still an horrible experience.

if you play solo, you get matched with braindead silvers

if you play duo, you get vs full squad predator teams.

Antenna is one of the worst POI in the game. Who ever designed and approved it needs to find a new role

19 : Anonymous2022/01/15 01:15 ID: hspg83v

Okay… jokes over haha. Not even April fools yet. Wanna give me my fucking h it registrations? People standing fucking still and my bullets go through them.

20 : Anonymous2022/01/15 06:48 ID: hsqj2uf

I kinda love the rampage controversy

21 : Anonymous2022/01/15 09:54 ID: hsqy9n3

Wish the map swap over was quicker.

22 : Anonymous2022/01/15 16:53 ID: hss8o13

Can we get an option to not get filled into premade duos in ranked? I swear to god most of the time they don't event bother to ping where they going not to mention any form of team play

23 : Anonymous2022/01/15 02:10 ID: hspnhyc

Bro this game has NO casual mode. I swear, every match is a sweat fest and I'm out here fighting for my life.

24 : Anonymous2022/01/14 15:25 ID: hsmzik7

Quick question, if I purchase a battle pass Only once and do not spend on anything else, does it technically mean I'll get every battle pass for free?

ID: hsmzppr

Only if you level it up enough to earn the apex coins from the rewards every time.

25 : Anonymous2022/01/14 18:39 ID: hsntsyz

Why does Arenas feel butter smooth but BR stutters and feels jank as hell?

26 : Anonymous2022/01/14 22:20 ID: hsortu4

Anyone else's audio seem different after the update? Everything in my game sounds more quiet and compressed and now sounds from directly in front of you seem to come from almost behind you

27 : Anonymous2022/01/14 23:38 ID: hsp34ek

2+ years now dealing with audio direction issues and still there has been no fix, enemy footsteps sound like they are coming from all directions and it’s hard to win 1v1s.

28 : Anonymous2022/01/15 08:37 ID: hsqs8x7

Ashe' ult needs a minimum distance cast.

I'm trying to cast it to the high ground in the distance, but the game decides I'll go 2 metres as it detected a piece of grass in the way.

Weekly reminder that Respawn cranks the EOMM to the max on the weekends. Play at your own risk.

30 : Anonymous2022/01/15 03:32 ID: hspxwqf

Remove the rampage

31 : Anonymous2022/01/15 06:00 ID: hsqelhf


ID: hsqifwn

it does

ID: hsqivva

Yes all passives, so that means Lifeline revives and even Valk’s flight

32 : Anonymous2022/01/15 17:30 ID: hssefhv

You really cannot take time off from Apex. Two weeks, a month - EOMM/SBMM tosses you right back into the sweatiest Maste

triple-stack lobbies...

33 : Anonymous2022/01/14 09:46 ID: hslyvxi

I miss the train and the construction site.

ID: hsm2z6q

Yep the train was great on WE as it added some much needed variation. Sometimes provided alternative hotdrop location, sometimes came in clutch for some GTFO, sometimes had some top loot and always allowed you to quickly zoom around WE to locate remaining squads. Since they removed it, Fragment hotdrop has defo intensified.

ID: hsm2osk

Removing the train heavily contributed to the Fragment problem on WE, it was such a nice rotation tool and took the hotzone madness away from Frag a bit.

34 : Anonymous2022/01/14 19:10 ID: hsnyi1g

Back to everyone using rampage again. Was a nice break from it those few days.

35 : Anonymous2022/01/14 12:58 ID: hsmfli7

I really took for granted how much more enjoyable the game was without the rampage. Every team in both ranked or pubs has at least 1 rampage user. The sentinel being back is nice tho. I’m still enjoying this season overall. It’s miles better than the shitshow that was season 10. Season 12 is going to be a critical point. Hopefully it’s good as season 9 and we can see a player boost. With all these vacant jobs at respawn though, this is seeming unlikely. No point really mentioning SBMM or servers. Beating a dead horse.

36 : Anonymous2022/01/14 16:57 ID: hsndqcn

The mods decide to be lenient and let one shit post stay on the front page, and now the entire subreddit has been flooded for 12+ hours by "LOBA MAIN AMA, NO OFFENSE TAKEN" and now "Jump tower main! AMA! Haha idk why we're doing this but it's fun!" posts.

ID: hsnra9m

This sub just beats shit into the fucking ground every single time lmao.

37 : Anonymous2022/01/14 14:01 ID: hsmnets

So I love this game, but I go through spells of eithee absolutely beaming people, or not hitting my shots at all.

Any advice for me?
