I love it but it takes a bit too long. I would have been fine if the mode included reducing everyone's max health and shields by 25% or so.

Ranked is by sbmm not your rank. It’s a bizarre decision but if the game thinks you’re good you’re gonna play masters/preds the whole time even if you’re in bronze.

I think the opposite it true as well: if those Masters aren't actually that good they get pushed down.

Finally got my cross progression and its nice to have my ps4 stuff on PC but because my ps4 account was higher level it reset my battle pass and I lost 40ish levels, also I have to do provisional ranked games again. Very not cool. Oh well, at least I have my heirlooms.

This is kinda bullshit imo. TSM? Dark Zero? Faze? Optic? These are the biggest teams in the scene! And you need twenty teams to make a single lobby. Going to be left with just a bunch of jobbers imo. ALGS going to go from 4 regions to 1 pretty quick.

Honestly, I'm not a fan of the franchising system in eSports but it was probably necessary in Apex's case

Also Disguised are absolute nobodies

First impressions of Revenant Uprising is that it’s kind of fun as the Legends but playing on the Rev team is complete dogshit. Who the gently caress wants to play Cannon Fodder Simulator 2024?

Edit: Apparently if the enemy Revenant team does well enough then you can spend the end of the game just spectating, so it can suck no matter what team you’re on!

Yeah first game was on the Revenant team and it was a bunch of running around for 3 minutes trying to find anyone, then you die quickly, then you have to do it again and hope you can find more people. It wasn't great.

Also they have a really dumb idea of unlocking advantages in the reward track for this event. Currently getting 1250 points in the reward track gives you the ability to see grenades through walls and an extra grenade slot in inventory (the Fuse perk).

So every Tuesday when the rewards reset, you need to play a bunch of Mixtape to level up the reward track and unlock the advantages before playing BR again, otherwise you are at a disadvantage.

Anyone know if they actually take action on people who sit inactive/try to rat matches?

One of our usual trio is super inconsistently online lately and I'm seeing so many awful thirds that immediately split off from the team and just sit in secluded corners until the last ring. Genuinely would prefer a dc'd third than someone trying to rat into the distant highs of mid-gold.

It's a legitimate strategy!

On a serious note they will never do anything about people ratting, it's still playing the game. They don't even do anything about the people who go to the oob spots every game.

It sucks so loving bad that sitting and staring at a wall for 10 minutes is something people will defend as a legitimate strategy. Both the fact that the system rewards it, and that people are so fixated on their rank that they'll do it.
