I hate this game's matchmaking more than playing against Seer's broken kit.

Final 2 squads. My squad is full vs. a 2 person squad.

I repeatedly say we should play the circle, the enemy squad is outside and has to push in.

My teammates then push, one at a time like bad guys in a Bruce Lee movie, and die one at a time.

I jump off of Olympus, to meet death with open arms.

Rip. I've won a few games because they hit me with that action movie "one at a time" fighting style lol

I played my first 2 games of Season 10.

1st game- No character select screen (this is still a thing, lol).

2nd game- 6 kills 1400 damage and stats didn't count.

May try again in Season 11.

ID: h9nomse

You’ll just come back to a worse experience. I’ve been telling ppl this since Season 3.

Anyone else feel like sounds are more bugged than in any previous seasons. For me it feels like I can hear 180 degree area in front of me but anything behind me has no sound. I’m getting flanked easily, because I can’t e.g hear Valkyrie using jetpack, ulting Bloodhound and so on, sometimes even gun sounds are muted. And why at random time the Apex main theme start playing at high volume.

6 : Anonymous2021/08/20 12:46 ID: h9nlw9x


Kill tracking doesn't work. I've been stuck at 65 kills in the season 10 stat screen for 24 hours and I have more kills than that on Seer alone (and I've played a ton of other legends). I was at 65, dropped 6 with Fuse, stat page still says 65. Meanwhile, my ranked season 10 stat page says I have 23 kills and 1 death, even though I have died way more than once. Like, for real, I've leveled back up from silver II to Gold I; you cannot do that with only one death unless you're Timmy.

Damage does seem to update, but I haven't really looked at it. Will update if it doesn't.

EDIT: damage does not update either. All the trackers on player banners work, but the one in the overview stat page has completely stopped working. I don't know how to tag devs in a post, but this should be looked at. I don't mind having a 23 K/D after playing ranked for 2 days, but it's not accurate.

EDIT 2: number of games also don't add up. It says I've played 25 games in season 10. Nope.

ID: h9npqko

The only games which are counted for me are the ones which I win. Other than that no games are being counted. No damage, No kills. The only good thing is that your k/d doesnt go down. My longest win streak has reached 9 while actually my highest should be 5.

7 : Anonymous2021/08/20 13:15 ID: h9npifp

The teammates I get, get dumber and dumber and dumber.

8 : Anonymous2021/08/20 13:15 ID: h9nphtc

I don't mind where we land but could ya ping where we're going? Half the time it seems like we're just heading to a no name POI until we're basically on the ground.

9 : Anonymous2021/08/20 14:31 ID: h9nzqmq

I swear every teammate either dies in the first 5 seconds, or spends the entire fucking match looting and doing nothing else. No inbetween.

10 : Anonymous2021/08/20 15:46 ID: h9oaxka

I hate this game, but I can't stop playing it. Help.

Also fuck Seer, can't wait for the nerf and I hope it's big

ID: h9oyk7h

When you get the right squad and everything clicks, there is no better feeling in gaming right now.

The problem is those games are maybe 1 in 50 if you play solo. Every other time your Octane hot drops, dies, and leaves before you even have a gun.

11 : Anonymous2021/08/20 12:18 ID: h9nismr

What happened to the Seer nerfs we were supposed to get this week? Did Respawn even say anything about not delivering?

ID: h9njwed

They said they ran into issues with the patch, so they're delaying the nerf until next week.

12 : Anonymous2021/08/20 20:34 ID: h9phgko

for the love of god stop hot dropping fragment.

13 : Anonymous2021/08/20 13:13 ID: h9np90s

Not a complaint, but just an observation: ever since they added the Rampage and brought back the Prowler, has anyone noticed that there are way too many heavy weapons as floor loot now? Prowlers are so common on the ground now. Light weapons also feel weird; like I hardly ever find 301s as floor loot anymore, I just find P2020s and RE-45s everywhere.

ID: h9o25rd

The light weapon distribution is terrible without the alternator

ID: h9o71hz

Seems like they didn’t really think it through. Having a net +1 heavy weapon on the floor, and vaulting one of the light weapons with no replacement. Loot is all out of whack

ID: h9nv76m

Yeah, it's awful.

14 : Anonymous2021/08/20 17:43 ID: h9osgvt

There are almost no footsteps anymore. Last couple of seasons i heard footsteps 60 percent of the time now I basically hear it 10 or 20 percent.

15 : Anonymous2021/08/20 18:54 ID: h9p2sa7

I've been working alot lately, so the amount of time I get to play with my friends is shrinking, which means I solo que ranked more frequently.

I logged on after work yesterday, got into a ranked match. First teammate got downed, disconnected immediately, and the remaining teammate just disconnected.

I got absolutely destroyed by the other team, and I just got off. Ranked used to be the solution to the shitty matchmaking in pubs, but its just as cancerous anymore.

This isn't a "im quitting apex" post, but I did hop on SplitGate, and I can say I'm having more fun there. My apex k/d rarely gets past .8 in br. My SplitGate k/d is 2.5.

It just seems like their matchmaking is 100x better than apex, and its made by a small team, and in beta. So like what gives?

All I can say is the 20$ i usually spend on coins every few weeks went to SplitGate this time.

16 : Anonymous2021/08/20 18:56 ID: h9p2yoj

They promised us patch nerfing Seer for this week. Where it is, Respawn?

17 : Anonymous2021/08/20 19:33 ID: h9p8qlb

Why is it I have to literally hard carry to win a ranked arenas game or we lose? How do I get matched with these people by mmr, I am truly puzzled by the incompetent mmr system.

18 : Anonymous2021/08/20 12:15 ID: h9nifvs

Fuck Seer and the bullshit scan meta

19 : Anonymous2021/08/20 21:24 ID: h9poism

I feel like arenas ranked was just exclusively designed for 3 stacks. It's such an insane grind as a solo q player.

20 : Anonymous2021/08/20 21:57 ID: h9pt27y

Never a single second where you aren't being wallhacked by a seer, bloodhound, or both at the same time. The devs are so monumentally fucking stupid.

21 : Anonymous2021/08/20 15:21 ID: h9o753p

Bangalore doesnt need a buff, the majority of characters need a hard nerf.

We've been on this power creep trajectory for way too long. This "scan first, shoot second" meta is actually horrible for the game

ID: h9o8a1c

Idk why they thought adding more scan legends rn was a good idea. Seer should’ve came at a later season but not now.

ID: h9oalsc

I actually agree, and I’m a Bangalore main. A lot of people wanted Bangalore to be buffed to combat the scans when a nerf will actually fix the problem

22 : Anonymous2021/08/20 12:53 ID: h9nmu2s

Wtf is everyone trying to smurf in ranked. Every other teammate is surfing. Saying that they are surfing to solo queue predator. Why tf not do that in your original account?

ID: h9nooii

Because they saw a streamer do it

ID: h9npgea

Because people love to make themselves feel better by wrecking noobs. Respawn does nothing, so smurfing just gets a little worse every season. Bronze, silver and gold ranks in BR are completely meaningless at this point, they're all just smurf fest.

23 : Anonymous2021/08/20 12:59 ID: h9nnjre

Enable the commands you disabled in the season 10 update.

24 : Anonymous2021/08/20 14:58 ID: h9o3tlv

I just got a 3 win streak after not winning for weeks

25 : Anonymous2021/08/20 15:47 ID: h9oayar

Had a guy drop fragment in ranked, get downed instantly and message me saying “No skill 1v1 me” when I was trying to find a gun. After I tried to revive him as well. For the rest of the game he would message me “no aim” whenever I was in a fight.

Pretty much summarises my ranked experience this split

26 : Anonymous2021/08/20 17:49 ID: h9ot980

SBMM is still messed up and I have only played enough to have 300 kills this season, that’s way less than what I would have already… It’s getting very boring to be honest

27 : Anonymous2021/08/20 16:44 ID: h9ojnqm

it’s amazing how much this season has killed my desire to play. haven’t even played a game since last weekend, which is like an eternity away from apex by my standards. loaded up the game tuesday expecting to see an update but guess that got “delayed”. idk how people are still playing this shitty season but more power to y’all still playing and having fun

ID: h9omw0g

Yes, this season is the worst Apex season to date.

28 : Anonymous2021/08/20 15:05 ID: h9o4pr3

My friend that I've played Apex with since day 1 had his account banned, even though he's barely been playing lately. EA said it was final and won't explain why, they just said the account broke the User Agreement and that's it. Does anyone know how he can at least learn why this happened? Lvl 400+ account with all battle passes, he'll probably quit the game for good now.

29 : Anonymous2021/08/20 15:54 ID: h9oc1o9

I love thermite

Wasn't Seer getting nerfed this week?

31 : Anonymous2021/08/20 17:03 ID: h9omfeo

Really, respawns going to allow valk and path to sit on top of the silos in the dome arena map. FO

32 : Anonymous2021/08/20 18:09 ID: h9ow638

Are people cheesing smoke or something? I've been shot through smoke so much lately I'm starting to think I'm missing something.

Is there some graphics tweak to remove it or make it pointless?

33 : Anonymous2021/08/20 20:21 ID: h9pfm8d


The problem lies with your que system. You should not still be in que if you cancel your que.

example. Que for trios, then cancel, and que for training... you'll join a trios game.


34 : Anonymous2021/08/20 21:49 ID: h9prywy

I like how they added the falling sound to help with octane jump pad not having teams silent jump on us like what, 1-2 seasons ago?

They somehow caused a falling sound glitch(I'm assuming) when you full kill someone and it makes falling sounds nonstop, as if an actual alive enemy is falling on you. This bug is still in the game. You wipe a squad and get ear raped by the falling sound of the fucking dead body.

Meanwhile Octane jump pad no longer makes falling sound. We're back to full teams silent padding on us again. I've seen SO many comp replays where teams get jumped on out of nowhere and there isn't a single audio cue of the team padding on them. But the dead bodies make falling sounds. Lol!

Just lol @ the people that work on audio. How you supposedly work on something and continuously break it and make it worse is truly beyond me. How it's been 10 seasons and legend audio progressively gets worse is just straight up beyond me. The entire community, casual and pro scene complains about it all. The. Fucking. Time. And it's practically ignored. More important to get ear raped by random unnecessary ability noises I guess.

35 : Anonymous2021/08/20 22:29 ID: h9pxc26

Just got knocked 2 whole seconds after closing a door. 25 ping. Amazing b tier game yall.

36 : Anonymous2021/08/20 12:44 ID: h9nlpu8

Such a joy to lose because of a Seer giving his entire team permanent wall hacks. What they ever thinking releasing that character is beyond me.

It doesn't matter how much they nerf him either, he'll still be OP. The whole idea of his character is just fundamentally bad in a game that already has two wall hack legends. People always talk about his q and the heal interrupts but his ult is just as infuriating to play against.

ID: h9nna3y

His entire kit is broken

37 : Anonymous2021/08/20 13:09 ID: h9norpm

I think Respawn turned up SBMM. Matchmaking is worse
