Fuse's Q feels a little weak. It doesn't really disturb your vision at all, and only does a little damage if you stand in it.

Haha Fuse's accent is not exaggerated at all. He literally sounds like he presents on triple j.

I was wondering about this. Horizon's accent is flawless, although, some of her vocabulary is a bit forced. To me, Fuse sounded like he may have been voiced by someone who doesn't have that accent normally, but I can't tell for sure. Does it sound correct?

I strongly dislike this new trend of creating long sight lines everywhere. Olympus was bad enough for sniper-heavy fighting, but now they've added a whole load of long sight lines to KC, a map that always felt more close quarters combat oriented.

In my opinion, Anvil Receiver is bad on the 301, as that gun is so accurate at long range/full auto that you just donít need it. The flatline, on the other hand, really benefits from it.

I've definitely encountered the R99 failing to be reloaded by the gold light mag as well. Happened to me in the Firing Range.

It's only happened to me once, and it was just the R-99. No matter what I did, swapping weapons etc, it just never worked.

Yeah, the servers are feeling a little laggy at the moment, at least in Europa.

The Fuse music pack is one of the better ones, imo. The lobby music (1:50) especially. Reminds me of Persona.

I've definitely been experiencing issues with very slow login times recently. It might have started as far back as the beginning of the season. It just sits at the start screen for ages before it lets you press Mouse One to get into the main menu. I have no idea what it's doing in that time, but it definitely can take up to 30 seconds to prompt me to click my mouse. It used to be pretty instantaneous.

Did you ever get a resolution to this? I've gone from near-instantaneous entry on UK or Belgian servers to a 50% chance of never connecting, and a 30-40 second wait otherwise. Also coupled with constant code:net disconnects at champ select, which is a real bummer.

Nope. Still dog poo poo. Also connecting from the UK.

The biggest thing for me, apart from just playing a lot, was to lower my dpi and sensitivity. That helped my accuracy a lot. It might not be translatable to your setup, but I currently use 600dpi and an in-game sensitivity of 1.0.


Edit: and that gives me something that a lot of good/pro players would still consider pretty high/fast.

There are tools you can use to convert settings between games and to calculate your centimetres (or inches) to turn 360 degrees.

Here's one I used: https://aiming.pro/mouse-sensitivity-calculator/apex-legends

Gunder
May 21, 2003

I just realised that earlier I stated that I use 600 dpi, when in fact I meant 1600. Quite a big difference. In game, my sensitivity is set to 1.0. This still feels fast on the desktop, but nice and slow in game.

Edit: I then used converters to set my sensitivity in other games so they all have the same cm/360.

I've been playing a lot of Loba lately and drat she's real good. Bracelet shittiness aside, being able to keep the team stocked up on poo poo is a big help, and I'm surprised I don't see her more often.

There's only so many times you can watch that teleport fail before you stop playing her.

If TF|2 is harder, will playing it improve your skill at Apex, or totally different?

It's a very fast game, so it will improve your twitch aiming and tracking skills. The movement, on the other hand, is so fast that it doesn't really compare. Apex is very slow by comparison. It's a tremendously fun game though. The campaign is good, especially the 2nd half, but the multiplayer is where the game truly shines.

Also, the Alternator is, or at least was, god tier in TF2. At any range. I think they nerfed it eventually.

A decent Lifeline basically makes it so that nobody short of Shroud can win a 1v3. Great design from the Respawn team. Good riddance to her stupid shield.

I'm hoping Arena saves this game for me because I am honestly at my wit's end. A solid two weeks of worthless loot-for-10-minutes-and-die or hot-drop-and-instantly-die shitbag teammates whose combined damage I regularly eclipse while 3 stacks stomp the lobby and delete me instantly if I run into them. This sucks.

This has been my experience of late as well. Their matchmaking is simply awful.

Wow another Knuckle Duster charge for Fuse. The super-situational tactical with the long activation that I've literally stood in while having a gunfight and still won.

It's so variable. I've also killed people by them attempting to walk through it and taking almost 100 damage from it. Other times it seems to do practically nothing.

It will be pretty interesting to see how the new arena works out. It seemed to include a shop/economy system like CS/Valorant. That could make it pretty competitive if they balance it properly.

Edit: Looks like you have to actually buy ammo for your skills in the arena, so you can't just spam them. This might feel a lot more involved and competitive than some people will enjoy, but to me, it sounds great. I just hope their matchmaking is decent and doesn't prioritise speed over match quality.

I take it that it's too late to start this now? I don't have the little scanner thing on the main menu that the various guides mention.

Did you pick up the little data cards that drop on the ground when you open a care package?

It doesn't take too long, the holosprays aren't too hard to get to if you look them up on the map, but you'll need to do it on both KC and Olympus l.

You can't start doing that until you click on a little scanner thingy on the main menu background. That's no longer there. They probably removed it with the limited event that just ended.

The guides were wrong. You can get the scanner from any care package without clicking the thing on the menu.

Yeah, the two I looked at both said you clicked the thing first. Just got a solo win while getting the KC ones.

I find the matchmaking tends to be much sharper in terms of skill level in ranked.
