[Mar 12] Apex Legends Minor Updates

1 : Anonymous2021/03/12 20:14 ID: m3q2f0

From @PlayApex on Twitter:

Just shipped a small @playapex update:

Matches will be limited to 2 "no-fill" players per game. This is a temporary measure while we solve a problem that was causing games to start with fewer than 60 players

The Heat Shield will be disabled in ranked and private matches until further notice. We're also aiming to fix some bugs with it by early next week, for those using it in the Ring Fury Takeover playlist. Stay tuned! Also: Ring Fury Stage 2 will be extended until Monday.

Lastly, we just updated the old public "Apex Tracker" on Trello. Would love to know if people find it valuable—if so, we'll make it more of a regular (weekly) thing.

It’s not listed but I hope they fix the horrible repetitive ring noise. It’s deafening and ruins my game sense!

ID: gqq7yng

That will be fixed on Monday with a client update.

Today, these are server-side changes.

ID: gqqci45

Thanks! I’m always dreading updating Apex on PS4 because the copying takes forever lol

ID: gqq8c4e

That’s great! I can deal with it for just a few more days.

ID: gqrjeob

Which option on this list is the sound bug?

ID: gqqjz8s

Isn't that the whole reason they're turning off the heat shields? I've heard it's people using them that causes the noise.

ID: gqqoo5k

Only removed from ranked...its still in pubs

ID: gqr403o

They're removed in ranked because there's an exploit where you can get infinite heat shields and just sit in ring all game

anyone else starting games with no teamates even with fill checked and like 30 players max

ID: gqqfnu6

Yep, I've had 3, 4 games in a row where I loaded solo. Had to double check my fill options. As I'm writing this message I just had back to back games with no teammates.

It's pretty frustrating, not going to lie, especially since ill finally load into a game with a teammate and they leave the moment they get knocked.

The game has had some weird lag since the update. I know the servers are poo, and every big event draws more people which can cause it, but losing fights to stutters and drops is always a huge bummer.

5 : Anonymous2021/03/12 20:19 ID: gqq839y

Nothing about infinite load bug code:net what is it day 25 now?

ID: gqq8ba5

We are fucked.

6 : Anonymous2021/03/12 22:49 ID: gqqqds3

I love me some apex but this event is not it. Personally can’t wait til it ends.

ID: gqs2bcy

That's why I wanted to play ranked, but these servers are making that impossible

ID: gqtcv80

Gotta love it. I get to choose between sweaty diamond lobbies with bad ping or going deaf playing this abomination of an event lol.

ID: gqsz39c

Yeah I hate this event. Also what happened to being able to choose to play an event? It was always an option to play an event and I think it should be that way this time and all the times after this.

ID: gqt96fz

kings canyon is to small you say? Let's take the whole fucking middle out!

7 : Anonymous2021/03/13 03:14 ID: gqri609

I've never actually wanted an event or patch to be rolled back more than this one.

What a mess.

8 : Anonymous2021/03/12 21:19 ID: gqqfozf

Anyone else getting matched with a team even if you chose no fill? On ps4 btw

9 : Anonymous2021/03/13 07:48 ID: gqs41s5

Lastly, we just updated the old public "Apex Tracker" on Trello. Would love to know if people find it valuable—if so, we'll make it more of a regular (weekly) thing.

I don't see investigating Loba's bracelet, sounds and server issues.

10 : Anonymous2021/03/12 21:13 ID: gqqewhv

Maybe the audio should actually get fixed

ID: gqqypaa

They've gone two years without fixing it, why would they start now that we've got "fun" new bugs?

11 : Anonymous2021/03/13 02:14 ID: gqrc0w9

Switch user here...

Please for the love of everything good about this game, allow the gyro aim to detect the rotational axis. As of now motion aiming is completely wack in handheld mode, the natural motion is not to turn the screen like a steering wheel but to point it in the direction you wish to shoot.

12 : Anonymous2021/03/12 20:54 ID: gqqcjfw

What about letting people choose if they want to play a regular match or an event match?
I personally find this particular event the opposite of fun, the Ring Flares serve little dinamism when is the actual time to fight another team, plus Stage 2 is horrendously big and always spawn in the middle of the map, denying a big chunk of it when you need to just loot some stuff from there.

ID: gqqtvp2

They really should just disable it for now or roll back to Ring Fury Level 1. At least in level 1 the early ring flares were random.

ID: gqrwf66

Please! This ring of fire mode is really bad. Forcing you to use more meds, avoid areas and having it so large is terrible.

ID: gqrcjpp

They did this with most previous events, now they’re just forcing us to play it.

ID: gqsmfg1

I believe the issue is they don't want to split the playerbase between regular matches and the LTM.

But the game is on Steam and Switch now. It's got more players than ever. I think the population is big enough to handle any splits.

13 : Anonymous2021/03/13 16:27 ID: gqt6ztp

Ring Fury Stage 2 extended until Monday!?! What the fuck, I literally stopped playing because of that stupid shit. Stage 1 was ok, but this giant ring flare in the center of the circle is more toxic than the sweatiest of the bald ttv wraiths. I guess fuck me, right?

14 : Anonymous2021/03/12 23:10 ID: gqqsp7o

You can update this game with 100 new metas and content but you wont achieve nothing. People will still be pessimistic and hate everything unless you upgrade the servers and fix game breaking bugs. I think its this simple. No heat shield or meta change or new legend or new weapon wont change the fact that this game needs operation health.

ID: gqqtis7

I agree. Gameplay > Presentation

15 : Anonymous2021/03/12 20:48 ID: gqqbpl1

Why are they extending this ring fury shit? This has been by far the worst event apex has ever done. As a day one player, this is the first time apex hasn’t been fun to play. I downloaded cod to play until we can just have normal pubs. Seriously, who though it was a good idea to have random ass rings all over the map? How does that make the match more fun?

ID: gqqu8pq

It feels double bad to me coming off the Locked & Loaded event as well, that event made Apex feel better than it's felt in so long, and now losing that AND getting hit with this event feels double bad. I wouldn't even mind this event as much if they said "ok, and for this LTM we're keeping Locked & Loaded"

ID: gqsb6f6

Yes! Locked and loaded was SO great, it made hot dropping absolutely bonkers in the best of ways. I also felt like my teammates left after getting crated less often since they knew they would respawn with something.

ID: gqs8qwz

Yeah, they should add locked & loaded to the standard game. Or at least drop with a Mozambique.

ID: gqqc9ua

I did see in a tweet string somewhere that with maggie taking over that its kinda a lore thing to have her disrupt the games until they give her fuses other arm

To that i say horseshit as its just not fun to skate around the flairs and avoiding rings

Cause even if you use the heat shield its loud being in it, and you cant see anything if its in ring. So i dont know how to play the takeover other than avoid the rings.

ID: gqqje7v

Yeah, using the heat shield in the ring is just too much visually and audibly. Id rather avoid it all together

16 : Anonymous2021/03/13 05:12 ID: gqrt26g

Yo, fuck this random heat shield noise glitch

17 : Anonymous2021/03/12 22:39 ID: gqqp6ri

I am lagging so much more with the past update. Anyone else?

ID: gqr8vab

Yep. It's been really really bad since the update and I rarely ever have these issues. It's hard to even play the game right now.

18 : Anonymous2021/03/12 21:02 ID: gqqdijo

Guess I won't be playing until this piece of shit LTM is over! Thanks guys.

ID: gqqtlmf

I can't even play because this update makes me lag like crazy

ID: gqqwqyr

I get 1 second input lag when close to an enemy ...

19 : Anonymous2021/03/13 04:32 ID: gqrpp23

Imagine getting teammates

20 : Anonymous2021/03/12 20:18 ID: gqq7zci


21 : Anonymous2021/03/13 08:22 ID: gqs63ht

2 solo per match? Wouldn't this mean there is always some poor dude whom get matched solo in trips because there will be always one place left?

Y not 3 per match so u have blocked 1 team out and not 19 teams +2 solos = 59 instead of 60 players?

22 : Anonymous2021/03/13 02:31 ID: gqrdsyu





And start doing QA.

23 : Anonymous2021/03/12 20:35 ID: gqqa4gb

Seems like more matches are starting with one or two even though we have fill lobby checked.

What's up with that?

24 : Anonymous2021/03/12 22:39 ID: gqqp6ly

Are they going to fix Lobas tactical? You can no longer get high grounds that you used to be able to get to that both horizon and octane can get to no problem.. whats the point of a teleport bracelet if you can’t even use it to get advantage points? So confused.
