For the love of fucking goddddd please stop landing in the same building/room as me. Puh lease. There is no need. I don't want to have to panic and fight with my own teammate to grab a weapon when we landed in an area where we all had more than enough buildings/rooms/space each. Especially when I pinged a specific place where I, as the jumpmaster would be breaking off to. STAHHHP.

Anyone else feels like nothing goes their way in the game some days? Like i lose every single gun fight i get into and feele like i have to hit people with 40 bullets and i get 1 framed by an r99. And the matchmaking is putting me against the same pre made master champs, and i go against the same people everyday to the point i know half the lobby names, the outcome is always the same, they just destroy lobbies after lobbies. The EOMM or sbmm they got is making me not want to play anymore.

The loot pool is so bad right now. It takes so long to find a gun some games because every bin/floor area is filled with attachments, ammo stacks, sights, hop ups, accessories, heals.

ID: h3wswhl

OG Kings Canyon is a really fun map to experience again after so long, but looting 5 buildings and finding nothing but a 30-30 repeater is.. just not cool.

The lag and micro stuttering on the Xbox one X is just insane and game breaking. Wtf

6 : Anonymous2021/07/03 08:19 ID: h3wgm4l

If any developers are reading this. Make a game like apex, with the movement and gunplay, but fix the servers and other little bullshit issues. I will put hundreds into your game. I promise. I can’t justify spending money on apex. I’m ready for something else to come out to take up my gaming time

ID: h3wkb81

Yeah bro it's frustrating to see how the devs and EA take all the money that players expendo on the game and don't even use a little to improve the servers. EA are very money hungry.

This game has too many annoying elements imma quit this season

8 : Anonymous2021/07/02 21:21 ID: h3uqcct

i can't play this now. the update effed my game up, too much stutter and craziness

oh well

9 : Anonymous2021/07/03 13:15 ID: h3x17zi

SBMM doesn't exist and really needs to be tweaked. Tired of seeing the usual 20 bomb 4k damage and master / pred badge sweaty players as champion every single match.

10 : Anonymous2021/07/02 19:32 ID: h3ubnfg

Stop donating servers, you asshats. I constantly run into preds with 20+ kills in pubs. Not badges, kills. The same servers have lvl 80s players.

This matchmaking is a fucking joke.

11 : Anonymous2021/07/02 20:59 ID: h3unj8w

Hi, fix the servers and make the game playable without 10 - 20 crashes per play session.


12 : Anonymous2021/07/02 22:49 ID: h3v1512

What were you thinking with the 50 wins in arenas badge?

13 : Anonymous2021/07/03 13:35 ID: h3x33sc

Been playing for 4 hours now and my teammates still haven’t gotten a kill between them. That has to be a solid 30-40 people. This is unbearable I just want the game to be slightly fun again.

ID: h3xilux

At this point, I'm really wondering if randoms are real people.

14 : Anonymous2021/07/03 06:32 ID: h3w9ksx

The loot is so absolutely abysmal on both of these maps. Like, holy hell.

15 : Anonymous2021/07/02 16:31 ID: h3tly9x

Servers still trash, cheaters are still running wild. Good job, another worthless update, you people must have a blast with that "Wattson Major Buff".

16 : Anonymous2021/07/02 22:31 ID: h3uz3au

Why the fuck all these players never think about what happens after in ranked, especially plat players? Sure, you can drop on fucking waterfall, but what’s next? No resource whatsoever for entire squad? Get thirded from a fucking lab? C’mon use your fucking brain ffs

ID: h3vakp1

That's why they're plat

17 : Anonymous2021/07/03 00:10 ID: h3vaamb

Yo, the loot pool on these OG maps areabsolutely garbage.

ID: h3vgdoq

What you mean you don't like finding nothing but white armor and 3+ buildings with zero guns? Can't say you don't enjoy seeing three 30-30s and 4 P2020's in the same 3 2 buildings either.

i have over 1400 hours in game. was diamond in both splits last season. i play this game because of thrill of fights and badges. 50 win arena badge, the only reason i play arena right now. i play solo. i don't believe there's a SBMM. because almost every game i am matched with 100- premades. they dont talk, they dont listen. even if i win couple games in a row i still get same skill ranked players. i usually play aggressive (level of 6-7 out of 10) but in arenas you cant do that, you get punished. so i started to stick with the team. we get one knockdown i push, i die. they still wait. if i dont push, viola its 3v3 again and it becomes a heal race. what's the point then? why am i getting matched with lower skilled people? i dont want to talk bad about them because i walked through same way but im really bored of every game going 2 tiebreakers + suddendeath and 4k dmg least. im not boasting its this way if game gets longer and longer. this is not even ranked arena too. how is this fun and casual? i have been playing 2-3 hours of arenas since patch came and my badge progress is 22/50. if i wasnt on holiday there's no way i could complete it. i know on your side of the point (dev) you put these challenges to make people play the game but this becomes a job. solo queue is really bad in arenas. i was actually excited for skull town first because of the chaos it would bring but it's just highground fight %80 of the time

Servers shitting on themselves for anyone else? The server dropped twice today for me in pubs, and have had at least a dozen no reg during combat.

20 : Anonymous2021/07/03 02:26 ID: h3voorv

Can we get a dev update about arenas matchmaking? I’m a level 500 player and nearly every match i solo queue both of my teammates are < level 100. It’s super frustrating to deal with because I’m not good enough to clutch a 1v3 every time. We haven’t heard anything about this issue since they first said they were aware of it and it hasn’t gotten any better.

21 : Anonymous2021/07/02 16:21 ID: h3tkk33

Lore aside,I hope World's edge get the current LTM blue sky for next season. The red sky is an eyesore to play. Also,got matched with genburten today,MF just dropped 10 kills in like 2 mins of dropping lasering everyone with volt and wingman.

22 : Anonymous2021/07/03 12:06 ID: h3wvcsl

since yesterday i just don't have any fun with the game. either the players have disconnections, they are afk or the opponents are completely overpowered. i play trios and often i am alone from the beginning. all problems that have always existed somehow

23 : Anonymous2021/07/03 06:21 ID: h3w8urp

Why do people always try to fight when they know they aren't gonna win? Bro just retreat and revive our teammate you're not a twitch streamer

24 : Anonymous2021/07/02 14:50 ID: h3t6wsp

Idk what they can do but the solo experience has become absolutely miserable in this game. Love apex, but it’s basically unplayable without a full squad.

ID: h3t7fw5

I'm sure the devs have given up on the solo player experience. Clubs were probably meant to let solo players group together, to basically eliminate the solo experience instead of trying to fixing it.

ID: h3t82qz

Probably, but it just makes me not want to play. I just get tired of solo queuing pubs and matching full stacks of preds over and over again.

ID: h3t96tu

All they have to do is separate solos from 3-stacks and the experience improves multitudes, but they refuse.

ID: h3ttjv9

Removing EOMM in pubs would be a huge start. Solo queue players are the babysitters in this game and they're not getting paid hourly.

EU West, 1 PM (13:00 CEST). On a Saturday. One of the most crowded server areas for Apex in the middle of the weekend.

No teammates in BR, 4 games straight. Four. Endless matchmaking. Easiest the longest wait I've ever experienced. 0 teammates.

Yeah this is going great, Respawn.

Update: 5 games.

26 : Anonymous2021/07/02 14:26 ID: h3t3ng9

Seeing all the problems with the current build has put me off playing the game. As much as I love the original King's Canyon & World's Edge, that isn't enough to look over the glaring server issues and game breaking stutters.

27 : Anonymous2021/07/03 09:06 ID: h3wjjcb

I clicked on trios with friend and we get put into ranked. Our teammate dcs instantly and we still lose SR.

Dogshit devs can’t ever get anything right.

ID: h3wlwnz

the devs do not give a fuck

28 : Anonymous2021/07/03 16:06 ID: h3xjwpw

Bruh why is revtane still a thing LMAO…it’s like mandatory to run this combo in high level ranked, I get trying to change the Meta and all but holy smokes we’ve been doing this revtane shit for 5 spilts…..time somebody does something about it, with the latest rev and octane reworks I actually think both characters are in a healthy spot, it’s when they are paired together that it becomes violently unhealthy. There’s literally no risk (other than someone camping totem I guess) to rev ult third party with a jump pad

29 : Anonymous2021/07/03 18:15 ID: h3xyrrh

Every single game as a solo queuer:


-Both teammates die

-I rush in to save them before they quit

-I knock 2 of the enemies, and die to the 3rd.

-Rinse and repeat.

30 : Anonymous2021/07/03 18:31 ID: h3y0n2c

How the fuck am i so consistently matched with teammates who can not take out one single enemy who isn't at full health?

How many fucking times do i need to down 2 people myself only to get downed to a 3rd and still fucking lose

31 : Anonymous2021/07/03 18:38 ID: h3y1eud

Would be nice if I didn’t have dogshit teammates every game!!!!!

Sick and tired of getting stuck with trashcans who can’t take out a single enemy.

32 : Anonymous2021/07/03 19:23 ID: h3y6l0e

The lagging and the stuttering is so frustrating. I have over 250 mbs down, and my ping is 20, with no packet loss. However, every game is a goddamn cluster fuck. So shit at the moment.

33 : Anonymous2021/07/02 23:42 ID: h3v782m

Teammate quit the arenas game, thought it was safe to quit based off the shit respawn has told us about the penalty.

34 : Anonymous2021/07/03 01:42 ID: h3vk5c3

Wish respawn would change the 50 wins to 50 round wins. I play solo and I get new players on my team against level 200s ~ 500 and usually are in a trios. Played since the start got 2 wins out of 50. What a joke. ruining the experience of new and old players.

35 : Anonymous2021/07/03 13:09 ID: h3x0nbq

Why can't this game be region locked at peak times? I play on London servers and rarely ever get English speaking teammates ever.

I'm not the greatest player myself and only really usually my mic to relay really important stuff if the games going already going well yet usually my team mate get back to me in Spanish or something if it all.

There must be literally 1000s of UK players playing Saturday afternoon and vice versa with French, Spanish, Italian etc.

I don't want to be talking shit with randoms the whole game but abit of communication would go a long way in what's essentially a team game.

36 : Anonymous2021/07/03 14:47 ID: h3xawp5

Is anyone else paranoid of colourful skins? I'm afraid I stand out more if I'm wearing something like Kawaii Wattson.

37 : Anonymous2021/07/03 16:11 ID: h3xkf0w

Are dive trails bugged or something? Multiple games recently it’s looked like no one’s been anywhere near me and then as soon as I land some kids are chasing and punching me.

38 : Anonymous2021/07/03 17:49 ID: h3xvy97

Idk about anyone else but I’m a little irritated about ability to get drops for the event. I understand that we can craft them, and it is far better than the iron crown event way back when. I feel like we should have the ability to earn boxes for a chance at skins other than doing event challenges for some weapon skins.

Anyone else getting an infinite black loading screen when first connecting to the lobby upon starting the game?

41 : Anonymous2021/07/02 15:22 ID: h3tbe71

Has matchmaking changed for the event? I managed to have a KDR of 1 all season (yeah I‘m not good) but ever since the event started I have a hard time getting any kills. No matter if I play crossplay (which was always harder) or PS. Predator trails everywhere. What’s going on?
