Whenever Bangalore isn't on screen explaining what everything in the game is, the other legends should be saying things like "Does the r-99 have a slow rate of fire?"

Just every so often have one of the legends when they ping be like... I think this is an r99? Where the hell is the gun nut when you need her.

I'm really liking the 3030. Great default iron sights. I know it's not always Better Wingman but it sure feels like it

I haven't seen a virginia server online in like month.

Also with fuse introduced I still think a fun semi buff to Bangalore would be to have her smoke grenades put out fires like they did in tfall

I agree it's awful at range. the irony is it used to be kinda good since its first shot was dead on target so you could tap fire at extreme ranges with it.

I had a guy get downed engaging a team miles away from the teammate and I. Who then proceeded to lose his mind at us about " where were we, your so bad etc etc". Par for course normally but the sheer paroxysm of rage he went into when the teammate proceeded to solo the team that downed him (I was useless) and then walk away without rezzing and deadpan saying " I only pick up people who are worth it" was heartwarming.


Edit: Tbh the thing that was most surprising was the guy not insta quitting

I just want to check if this is a universal experience or just me.

Lately this is how my games go.

First game champion has 0 kills on character no badges. I do fairly well not great because I am not great but like 4 to 6 kills or so.

Second game every name has ttv in it and drop trails are purple and red everywhere. I land .. maybe survive because of my teammates and put in at most 400 damage while I try to help the wandering murder bots that are my teammates ( this game will also lag like a motherfucker and I will rubberband constantly after the first two engagements)

Third game not everyone has ttv in their name and drive trails clear up but it feels like every single enemy team has double hammers 500 and the 20 bomb badge( or at least the ones that inevitably murder me do). My teammates and I are lambs to the slaughter and I will do on avg 150 to 300 damage.


This continues until I am lucky enough to solo drop with a clanned duo who will not speak but will move in coordination enough that I can follow and not be a hindrance. This game I may or may not get kills but at least I will put in 900 or so damage.
After this second game and third will cycle again until I get tired of punching myself in the sack.










Also all my challenges are for watson and crypto and pistols and snipers.

A Heirloom(!!!!)

Season off to a p. great start, not going to lie

I have opened so many packs in the lifetime of my playing this game and never seen heirlooms. A friend who hates this game got one like 50 packs in or something.

This game hates me and wants me to know it.

is there any method of predicting where the circle is going to fall in arenas? i swear i just lost a round on phase runner because the enemy were better near the runners, whereas we were stomping them on the other side. game decided to switch over to the runners for the last few rounds and just never went back :shrug:

There's the recon towers but beyond that there are set patterns so after a while you can notice then. This is anecdotal but semi not because even I have predicted a circle close before.

So Bang smoke needs a buff now with the amount of wallhacks in the game. Seer just completely negates her.

I played a squad where everytime the seer popped his active the bangalore would dump smoke on the same line as it. It was fairly effective.

Our squad still won but that was mostly due to their third falling down into our team and getting shredded.

It seems like the best defense against Seer is running away to reposition, but try telling that too a pubbie. Yesterday a teammate of mine got barely missed with a charge rifle shot, got ulted by Seer, then started slowly peeking over the roof of building with a 2020. He got headshotted immediately.

I like seer fine and dont find him too annoying though he is basically top pick atm. I would say dropping damage from his active would be a fine move.

Beyond that eh. This is the most fun ive had in apex in a few seasons and i dont even have seer unlocked.

At what point does SBMM kick in? I haven't tried ranked but I've hit level 18 and I usually go about 3 matches of absolute brutal shutouts followed by a match or two of 8 round arenas, and maybe 1 match where we win 3-0.

Is it better to just play ranked at this point?

Its already kicked in and your in the fodder category just like me.

All i know about arenas is if you solo drop something like 8 times out of 10 its just you vs a three stack.

The other two are you and another dude who afks vs a three stack.

that way you wont be able to avoid landing in the city part every round :twisted:

Wattson finally useful.



Edit:

Am i crazy to think a fine buff for crypto would just be to remove the loving glow and noise when the drone isnt piloted? Then you could use it like a security cam or a drone from R6?

He should still be unscannable for sure but thats a buff id like.

When choosing what legends to buy first, ignore advice and just pick who seems fun. The worst two buys I made (rev and wattson) were based on recommendations from this thread and curiosity about playstyle, respectively

A. Good point just buy legends that look fun.

B. In what world is Revenant not fun. I challenge you to find something more satisfying than scaling the sheer side of a building behind a team that thinks their safe and destroying them.

I almost made a post yesterday about not seeing the server issues everyone is talking about but I did encounter some last night. It still only amounted to one crash (reconnected just fine), a few AFK teammates, and a couple of free kills on AFK enemies.

Definitely a problem that needs fixing, but not unplayable for me. Possibly just lucky.

Considering that respawn is actively troubleshooting it and even streamers have titles about the servers being hosed. Yes you're just lucky.
