Give the Devotion some kind of hopup that makes the first shot shoot faster and farther then swap it with the Kraber.

Swap turbocharger Volt with the Prowler.

Swap Prowler with Mozambique but it's got super hammerpoint and will oneshot any non-shielded target.

runchild posted:

“Anonymize display of player’s name in the champion presentation, obituary, and other locations of living opponents.” It doesn’t effect your name on your screen at all.

Also there seems to be some confusion between Anonymous Mode and Streamer Mode. The former hides your name for everyone else, the latter hides everyone else’s names (or only the player that killed you if you set it to that).

I accidently found out how Anonymous Mode works recently. It hides your name from everyone not on your team. Prematch Previous Champion display (and I think postmatch victory posing) it defaults to PlayerXXXX, and in game it switches to "LegendXXXX". The numbers are completely random and different for everyone.

Your teammates will be able to see your name in match.

I've seen enough 1v3 clutches by some gold badge Octane rando that I ignore bad teammates and instead focus on how I could have done better. I want to be that guy someday.

Hit more shots, be more aware, rotate better. What the randos do is meaningless. They either helped or not. I can only control how well I am playing.

This doesn't apply when playing with IRL friends because it's a constant stream of complaints, yelled complaints, screamed complaints, declarations of cheating, declarations of aim botting, delcarations of dodge botting... the list goes on. That's when I get frustrated and slam the leave button.

I don't want anyone to read this as insulting to them, but... I can't so I'm just going to go ahead and say it:

Lots of people are absolutely garbage at all videogames and are only able to find it "fun" when it's a very simple task that they are able to accomplish. Bright shiny lights go off and you clicked the buttons on your mouse and were rewarded, therefore you had fun.

You just have to make sure you are using those shields and grenades or that is wasted money spent. Buying extras of your tactical is a great material dump since that does carry over from round to round if unused.

I like arenas well enough, but I only have an hour or two to play per day and I'm bad at video games, so clearing all the daily arena event poo poo takes basically all the time I have to play. So in practice I never get to play BR which I do enjoy more.

Several of the flash events have nothing but stars, crafting mats and 2 packs in them so you could just ignore them.

I will cop that when a time-limited skin is part of it I also feel the need to suffer.

Mostly here-say, but it was rumoured that changing your pose to a non-animated one helps with the connection issues. I tried it out this morning and successfully played out 5/5 games when I usually only got half of that. I only had one teammate with an animated banner in that time too.

Give it a try and see if it improves?

I will say that the games were still choppy with a small amount of rubberbanding, but not to the extent they were earlier in the week.

There are multiple people in this thread who have migrated to only arenas, you see tons of new players of varying skill in arenas, there are people online who left the game because they hated the BR fad coming back because of arenas, but yeah, arenas is actually unpopulated and everyone hates it good detective work fellas.

The frequent flash events are to trick all those players into playing more. Get them invested in the skin economy instead of just playing a 3v3 with good movement and gunplay. They don't just want engagement numbers they want store engagement as well from them and the flash events are an easy and acceptable way to funnel people towards that.

I only know this because I watched an LP of Titanfall 2 recently and she kidnapped a bunch of "the good team" soldiers and sent them into deathmatches with the not-titan big robot war crimes.

Going by Revanent it seems like the robot and the human are still basically the same person and culpable for the same crimes.

The whole love interest thing was a case of memory loss. She didn't know anything at all and Pathfinder was offering her a room and charging station(?) so why argue too much?

I stumbled on this youtube channel with a ton of Apex "lore" and this video here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rQj81XHfqTk

I get it's a BR game and the "lore" doesn't really matter all that much (or make much sense sometimes) but my question is where the hell is all the content in this video coming from? A lot of it looks fan made but it's clear that the characters' voice actors are included here as well, was this stuff officially made? They do not do a good job of showing this stuff in game (or even in their own youtube channel) so I'm wondering if this stuff is even legit or not.

I didn't watch it, but yeah, it looks like it's a compilation of a bunch of small videos they post on the official Apex twitter account.

Yes, they are developing multiple whole storylines and the some of the characters have serious backstories and personal issues they are dealing with but if you don't care you can just be the funny robot man who is always playing with weird skulls and talking about killing.

On the fan content bit: Respawn seems pretty cool with fan content and has brought in various community members to animate stuff or draw comics that are 100% official. Based on the official twitter account you can usually tell when they are posting a "look at this cool fanart" and when they are posting "here is a short lore/story comic about [something] (ps a fan made it for us we love them love them too)"

And yes, it's horribly organized as a whole. It's beyond a meme now and has settled firmly into a joke.

Respawn is experimenting with how they are telling the story because they have gotten a lot of rightful complaints about it. They didn't do a treasure pack comic this time around, and instead gave us this.

They really want more people to be invested in the story/stories. The issue is that the people who care probably don't want to solo cue as Bloodhound 4 times on a specific map to get some dialogue(i haven't done it because the whole system looks awful so i don't actually know what you are supposed to do or what you get) and the people who don't care will continue to not care.

EDIT: This experiment is seriously a net negative in getting people interested because this kind of thing isn't going to bring in new people but is definitely going to get already interested people frustrated because it's so weird to do. yeah dude just solo queue into worlds edge and go to a hot drop area to find a thing and then dodge the other 10 teams surrounding you to complete the first part of the quests have fun! also because you are solo you will be hunted into oblivion at all times
