Please fix freezing/stuttering/lagging.

Still terrible performance on PC ever since the genesis update. Could run the game fine on low-medium texture settings before. Now I fucking stutter on textures DISABLED.

The game has been unplayable for almost a month now due to ridiculous CPU usage after the Genesis update. Decided to buy Titanfall 2 from the Steam summer sale to curb my Apex withdrawals and fell in love with the game only for it to get DDOSed to oblivion just as i was getting started 🙁

Once again I am asking for 100% CPU usage fix.

ID: h6pyroe

i want it too, and i'm tired of claiming for this in reddit-forum-twitter and they do nothing, i'm about to drop from apex forever if this didn't get fix in s10 launch

Can they just take the time to fix the servers? I'm getting tired of split second lag that gets me killed and slow mo lobbies and it's almost season 10.

Is it only me but the game is stuttering way more than before like in every game.

ID: h6pe8az

I haven't been able to play since the Genesis update because of stuttering. It's nearly a month of no Apex for me.

the matchmaking is horrible, season after season, in every single mode.

I rather have longer queues, specially in normal trios/duos and arena

8 : Anonymous2021/07/27 13:43 ID: h6pfl00

Why the fuck do I constantly get unreadied in the lobby?

ID: h6phv4d

If you change characters it will do that but also sometimes it just does it for no reason

9 : Anonymous2021/07/27 16:09 ID: h6pyx8n

lag. fps drops and lag. so fun.

10 : Anonymous2021/07/27 12:20 ID: h6p6gls

What do you guys think about the Caustic ult change? 5 seconds shorter duration before it disperses, but it does more damage to compensate. I'm not so sure I like this despite it being a buff more-or-less

They could solve the actual problem the ult (and Gib's ult) causes by having the last rings move around as opposed to being static. As it stands it's "merely" very good during most of the match and overpowering in the last ring.

Anyone else finding pubs basically unplayable? I'm a plat 4 with a KD of 1.1 and a win rate of 11%. Yet in nearly every single one of my matches, and that's not an exaggeration, there are 4k20 high diamond to masters and sometimes even pred players. Almost every. Single. Match. On top of the horrible state of the servers the matchmaking is really fucking bad. I'm decent at the game but I'm constantly in lobbies that are way above my skill level. And I play on U.S. Easy servers so it's not people who abuse small servers for gain. It's really hard to enjoy playing when you constantly get shit on by the first team you come across. Season 9 royally fucked this game in so many ways and neither EA or Respawn has fixed any of it and they won't even acknowledge that it's a problem.

ID: h6qv7g6

Been like that for a long time. Sad when ranked is easier than pubs.

ID: h6qqhg8

I am the same . Plat ranked, 2k badges on about half the characters, decent player around 1 KD and recently I cannot win a single game. Bunch of try hard three stacks and after first encounter we get either a team wipe or no one down stays long enough to see the outcome and get picked back up. I'm done for now.

ID: h6qr36y

I don't like to use the term unplayable in a literal way but it's almost literally unplayable. Yet I always come back for more so I guess I'm the clown.

One of these days I'll be able to hear a team of 3 running up to me, instead of them spawning behind me like I'm playing Cyberpunk

On the PS4 we had a small patch yesterday, will there be another one today? Download is fine, just hate the copying time so would like to prepare.

14 : Anonymous2021/07/27 16:16 ID: h6pzvmf

Come on Respawn your servers are messing up my games. I just got 7 kills and died from a lag spike… This stuff has happened way more than one time

15 : Anonymous2021/07/27 16:43 ID: h6q3ni3

S1 player here, and the stuttering and lag is the worst now than it's ever been. Actually unplayable on Xbox.

If there's no fix in this upcoming patch, I'm saying goodbye to Apex and I know I'm not the only one. It's been fun, but not worth the frustration.

16 : Anonymous2021/07/27 17:36 ID: h6qb0xn

The the in game stuttering has gotten worse. It’s getting close to being so bad it’s not playable.

whats the solution for the black screen and apex bottom right logo keeps refreshing after server choice screen.. sick of waiting for the game to load or never loading

18 : Anonymous2021/07/27 16:45 ID: h6q3t8o

Is anyone else experiencing a long load time when getting from the title screen into the lobby?

Ever since the mid-season update every time I log into the game, the loading screen to get into the lobby lasts long enough to get me a code:net. After restarting the process I load right in.

Something similar happens the first time I switch between different game modes.

Anyone else been experiencing some major lag issues recently? I’ve been dropping connection to the game completely.

21 : Anonymous2021/07/27 16:38 ID: h6q2w2s

I’ve battled through/ignored a lot of bugs in this game but this lag spike/stuttering issue that happens right when you get into an engagement (Xbox one s) is an absolute joke. Bad enough to be considered game breaking imo. It happens so often that I’m scared to take fights now. Since that last update it’s been soooo bad. Praying to god the new season fixes it.

Apex servers are still garbage

23 : Anonymous2021/07/27 20:16 ID: h6qwxn2

I’m getting huge ping and packet loss on all servers today, what the fuck is going on

24 : Anonymous2021/07/27 13:02 ID: h6pau6w

On another note, perhaps Respawn should make a new mode similar to firefight in Halo or Zombies in CoD where the defensive legends(wattson, caustic, rampart) have to hold a building for X rounds vs incoming shadows

ID: h6pcpj9

You could do all legends but in this game mode it would be beneficial to have defensive ones on your team.

Does this game feel different to anyone else when playing in a party (even just one other person)? When I'm by myself I rarely feel THAT overwhelmed. I'm not great but I can at least have some competitive fights. I dropped with my one buddy for 2 hours and I don't think we had a chance to reload one time lol. Absolutely zero rotations. Sweat fest city(pubs). Feel like the opponent doesn't miss and they're 100x better than us (I'm level 250 and he's 48). You'd think that after that long getting your shit pushed in, we'd be granted an easy fight. Nah. Hopeless.

I’m just tired of dying when I’m clearly behind cover and out of LoS

Please please we need the stuttering and freezing issue fixed on Xbox one console. Do the developers know about the issue?? A lot of people are complaining about it.

28 : Anonymous2021/07/27 14:11 ID: h6pj1x0

We want better servers

When does the "we are working to fix the audio" becomes a lie since mirage clones have perfect audio?

As someone who regularly uses the L-Star I can tell you that the attachment thing is going to be a NERF.

Zero chance that the current floor L-Star is not equivalent to at least a Blue Mag/ Blue Barrel Season 10 L-Star.

So in reality you'll need decent RNG to get it to its baseline current level as of Next season. Purple might give a bit of an increase but people already tend to not enjoy the L-Star. Now they'll need to attachment hunt for it to be baseline usable? Lame imo.

Remember guys, season 9 was supposed to be the best season yet lmao. Don't get blinded by the new season hype.

35 : Anonymous2021/07/27 18:40 ID: h6qjxd9

Is there ever going to be an increase over lvl500? or a prestige element?

36 : Anonymous2021/07/27 22:28 ID: h6repo8

Probably not going to make it to Plat IV, but I’ve made it to Gold II! I’m very bad at first person shooters so I’m really proud of making it that far. Next season we’ll reach Plat IV!

People who land on top of the hammond waterfall in ranked are dumb. Best way to throw your game before even landing

fix servers, audio and sbmm

It's EOMM and bad on purpose

Audio has been broken since launch. I don’t think it will ever get fixed.

It’s truly painful to play without my usual three stack. I’m at < 400 games this season which is my lowest play time ever by a massive margin. The issue isn’t that the core game is meaningfully worse (some issues with the meta aside). It’s that I have to coordinate schedules with two other busy dudes to have any fun at all. Solo queue pubs is miserable. Solo queue ranked is futile at Diamond + (but at least a welcome respite from pubs through Plat). Solo queue arenas is without exaggeration one of the most horrendous matchmaking experiences to ever exist in gaming.

I suspect I’m not alone in this, so I’d urge Respawn to either separate premades from solos across game types, fix the pub matchmaking in general, or add a solos BR mode. Otherwise season 10 could be the best ever content-wise but I still won’t be able to stomach more than a handful of consecutive solo queue games.

Hey guys I'm new to Xbox.

I can play one match or half a match before my ping ms shoots all over the place. I'm talking going from 20-30 to over 400 and up to 1000

My connection is good to go. Great speeds and passes all Xbox tests.

Reset console and router and had one good match before it acted up again

This is completely unplayable and ruining new console experience.

Any one have tips?

Next step is to head over to Xbox forums

ID: h6pac9l

My game lags and stutters as well, randomly but usually when I'm in fights. Wasn't always like this but I believe 2 seasons ago is when I noticed it. No solution. I heard it has issues on pc as well
