Does the game stutters for anyone else when there are multiple squads fighting

What happened to all the backpacks and blue armors

4 : Anonymous2021/05/14 16:54 ID: gy4ayau

Loot distribution is horrible

ID: gy6sh8e

The backpack issue is what annoys me the most. There's games where I'll loot 3 buildings and not find a white bag, then there's games where I'll open a supply bin and there will be 3 white bags lined up inside. At this point I'd prefer to just spawn with one.

The noise in this game. Oh... oh the noise. Oh my god I think i’m gana have a stroke. You can’t hear ANYONE pushing you. Even when there’s no noise in the game you can still have an octane, wraith, or horizon be in your pocket. Sometimes you can see guns shooting and have no audio for the bullets. This game would be the best BR of all time if they could just figure out the noise.

ID: gy523le

The fact that your teamates foot steps are louder than enemy ones baffles the fuck out of me. Directional audio is also trash.

Pubs is such a shit show. I end up alone 99% of the time.

7 : Anonymous2021/05/14 17:58 ID: gy4jtfd

The fact that the no teammate bug is still in this game over a month later is really mind blowing. It's not like matchmaking is a huge part of the game or anything.

Knockdowns with x weapons in arenas

whoever made these challenges can go fuck themselves

Imagine being a grown ass adult and spam pinging your banner in pubs lol

The game still lagging horribly on Xbox. I’ve played in two locations on different consoles, both with low ping, both hard wired. Ping is 27-35ms, 0% PL, and the micro stutter and lag spikes are present every single game. Why is nobody from respawn acknowledging this and also doing nothing. This is only in the BR mode, predominantly on WE. It has only been this prevalent since season 9 launched.

11 : Anonymous2021/05/14 18:01 ID: gy4k918

Is arena's matchmaking busted for everyone else? I honestly can't remember the last time a teammate has done more damage than me, and more often than not I'm doing more than both of them combined.

I'd have thought by now that the hidden MMR would've somewhat sorted itself out, because I see streamers getting put against other pred players in their arena matches, but I seem to get matched vs people that just about know the controls.

12 : Anonymous2021/05/14 21:40 ID: gy5djds

holy shit this is the worst i’ve ever seen the servers and i’ve played since season 1

13 : Anonymous2021/05/15 05:43 ID: gy6qrlm

I can't take this matchmaking. I know preds and masters are .4% of the playerbase and diamonds are like 4%. So why am I being killed by a diamond every single game tonight? And why is there 2-5 masters/pred trails I'm seeing every single game, minimum?

14 : Anonymous2021/05/14 21:55 ID: gy5fe7h

Pathfinder is the most balanced he’s ever been since low profile was removed, this sub should cool off with meme-ing this shit about passives.

15 : Anonymous2021/05/15 01:09 ID: gy61fgj

i'm really an idiot who thought i could actually play ranked and the smurfing wouldn't be that bad. nice reality check

16 : Anonymous2021/05/15 14:07 ID: gy7s5rm

Soloqueing arenas might be the worst gaming experience ever

17 : Anonymous2021/05/14 14:47 ID: gy3t1hr

People who 3 Stack PUBs with Smurfs, and stream it. The scum of gaming.

ID: gy3tq8w

smurfs generally mate, just a massive pain in the anus

Please please please just ping where you’re planning on landing after we jump

On that topic, what are some good places to land on the two maps, Olympus and Worlds Edge? I’ve inconsistently played this game since they come out and im always unsure where I should drop us

20 : Anonymous2021/05/15 05:54 ID: gy6rk2q

the mm after you win a game is completely disgusting. lobby packed with masters and preds and i get a level 32 fuse with 22 games played 8 kills showing for a teammate

21 : Anonymous2021/05/15 16:08 ID: gy86tx2

Everyone drops with white body shields now so one would assume they would remove them / drastically lower their spawn rate to help other items show up in the loot pool. Yet 4/5 supply bins I opened on Olympus had 1 - 2 white body sheilds. Curious.

22 : Anonymous2021/05/14 13:44 ID: gy3kjxv

Random teams should not be up against pre made teams in Arenas. There's no need for this kind of matchmaking.

Lets just have

3 randoms Vs 3 randoms

pre mades Vs pre mades

duo + random Vs duo + random

There's tonnes of people playing Apex now. No need for unbalanced matchmaking.

ID: gy3zoit

Respawn broke their game with no fill. Be honest, do you think they’d be able to implement even one of these things? I want it too, but I’m quickly losing hope

ID: gy45ur9

Pretty much. There are two barriers. First, that Respawn doesn't want to do this. Second, that Respawn likely aren't capable of implementing it without setting everything on fire.

23 : Anonymous2021/05/14 16:10 ID: gy44mk3

Is it me or are the servers worse than ever before? The first week I thought “yea it’s a new season there’s gonna be a lot of people”. But it’s still terrible. Every game is lagging. And yes I’ve changed servers. Anyone else?

24 : Anonymous2021/05/14 20:16 ID: gy52m7d

Have the Devs said anything about the no teammates in public lobbies problem? Do they plan to fix it or is it just another new bug were stuck with? It makes the game unplayable in pubs, i just have to solo queue platinum ranked now

25 : Anonymous2021/05/15 18:34 ID: gy8p49j

Matchmaking in this game is terrible.

26 : Anonymous2021/05/14 12:49 ID: gy3dws8

Fill team mates STILL needs fixing. I've queued for more then 10 matches today can't get a single team mate in duos not one.

ID: gy3fw9t

yeah every second game in trios is a duos or solo for me.

27 : Anonymous2021/05/14 16:14 ID: gy459gz

Can we please swap white armor and white backpacks drop rates please? Awesome looting multiple POIs and our entire team dont have backpacks.

28 : Anonymous2021/05/15 14:49 ID: gy7x1el

Where the fuck are all the backpacks?

All loot feels like it's taken a serious nerf.

29 : Anonymous2021/05/15 15:18 ID: gy80o9t

Arenas is great in that exposes how many people who play this game simply have no idea how to take a straight up fight. It’s hilarious how people immediately capitulate when they can’t play loot simulator or rely on third parties.

30 : Anonymous2021/05/14 14:06 ID: gy3nf9s

The SBMM is disgusting.

ID: gy4rla3

Always has been.

Its either done extremely poorly, or made this way for 'experience match making'.

31 : Anonymous2021/05/14 12:26 ID: gy3be1b

Is it only me or the matchmaking is very bad this season? Can't enjoy a single game.

ID: gy3bvhq

Yeah keeps getting put against 3 stacks while the game gives me a level 16 teammate

ID: gy3ekza

It's bad every season but somehow this season seems extra awful.

ID: gy3l3di

Yep, feels worse than usual (and the baseline is terrible anyway).

Coming up against better players is just part of the game...

But whenever I'm solo queuing and I see the champion squad is a predator 3 stack with combined 50k+ kills, and I'm paired up with 2 novices (and repeat this process several times) you know something is messed up.

32 : Anonymous2021/05/14 12:35 ID: gy3ce3r

Can they do something about teammates ping spamming? It's not ideal to go into the squad screen to mute them while in a fight

33 : Anonymous2021/05/14 18:52 ID: gy4rbb1

Servers get worse every patch.

If you arent going to do a single thing to improve them stop making it worse every season.

34 : Anonymous2021/05/14 19:34 ID: gy4wy19

Servers have been lagging and stuttering so badly since the season dropped. Game feels like shit right now.

35 : Anonymous2021/05/15 08:15 ID: gy70xc6

If I could stop landing in fucking areas with repeaters or literally no guns, that’d be awesome.

36 : Anonymous2021/05/15 19:23 ID: gy8v397

How the fuck is every single incompetent player in the game matched up on my squad every single game and the enemy team is 3-stack preds with 30k+ kills?

37 : Anonymous2021/05/15 20:02 ID: gy8zsxh

Can people learn that running head first in a gunfight isn't always the best idea. Also don't just stand in one place like a lemon.

38 : Anonymous2021/05/14 19:33 ID: gy4ws8g

All three maps should be in rotation, one hour each.

39 : Anonymous2021/05/14 16:57 ID: gy4bac9

I had my best ever game this week. 12 kills, 1 assist, 12 knockdowns, 3 revives, 1 respawn and 2300 damage.

For that game I was fighting almost non-stop for 15 minutes. I can't even begin to understand how people get 20 bombs and 4k damage.

40 : Anonymous2021/05/14 17:20 ID: gy4eh4z

Could anyone explain to me why do Plat players drop from the ship immediately and don't look around? I'm working my way back up (about to be Gold 1) and I pointed that out to the JM and all I got was "If you don't like it, you can go back to Gold lobbies".

Are these the famous Plat players that get hard stuck in Plat 3/4 and think that the game is unfair but not that their decision making is terrible?

Fix the dang darn auto fill or remove the option
