Apex Legends - Catch All

Thanks man! Hope we can play together soon.

First win in a week. And with 2 people the whole match! Got paired with a pro but I think I held my own. Sniped a Gibby with a PK and then followed up with a Prowler. While his teammates were trying to catch me (swing away!) my Wraith comes around from behind and drops the other one. Just a series of great enchanges where we used actual teamwork to isolate someone.

I will not at all spoil the new season, but I LOVE the huge map changes, and love what they did to a few weapons. The new Legend is very, very fun to play.

Go play!

I hate that Skull Town is gone

It's great! Loba's ult is better than I thought, but not OP, imho. The map feels very fresh, or at least, in places it does. The coastline with Slum Lakes to Octane's Gauntlet is unchanged until you get to where Thunderdome was, which is a bit of an oversight, imho.

My very first game of the season was a Ranked win, although sadly due to the character unlock glitch that was happening yesterday, I was on Bloodhound rather than my main girl Wattson.

I honestly love Skull Town being gone. Dropping there was never worth it for the minimal level loot there. It definitely forced people to other areas of the map, which I think is better than half the ship dropping in one location. Soon people will find a new place to hot drop anyway.

I've gotten dc'd every other match this morning after readying up and headed to the character selection. I have to alt-F4 out and when I go back in, it has me reconnect to the match I was dc'd from, with a random legend picked and already in the ground having missed the drop. Not a fan of that.

Glad reconnect exists, but not if it's gonna act like this. Other than THAT, loving the new map and gun tweaks, and Loba is super fun!

Yea completely disagree with that... Doesn't line up at all with my experience.

Still i do like the few new places I've seen. Only had time to play one match so far and made it to 2nd.

Also cool they have duos in place. Wish it was part of ranked.

Mirage:

I was mixed with the new changes on paper and after playing him i still am.

I hate that you don't get the invis with his Ult anymore. I absolutely love it on the rez though.

4 teams left at the end and my teammate went down (1 loser left right at the start). I was able to pick him up and because we were invisible during it team 3 and 4 started fighting and we were able to finish them up from behind.

It may be because I've not played in so long but the cooldowns for all his abilities seem super quick now too.

The cool thing about Skulltown was that if you wanted to play deathmatch, you could sort of do that inside a BR game at the start of most rounds. Also, the geography was good for that.

In on an apex kick on PS4 ...any gwj people still popping there? Feel free to add me.

Skulltown was great for endgame, I hated dropping there though.

If you see me online, feel free to shoot over an invite to play some games. My usual squad is having to take a hiatus because one guy is being deployed over the next several months.

A quick recommendation. There's a PS4 Youtube player of Apex who is...a ray of sunshine. Very positive, very humble, and yeah really, really good at Apex even though he's fairly self-deprecating at times.

I find his videos especially helpful these days...

This is his channel; it's called "iTemp Plays"

Anyone noticed a sudden surge in smurfing? Especially in unranked? Getting more super low level players solo dropping and going terminator the whole way across the map.

It's quite bizarre and annoying.

Thanks for this. I appreciate good Apex vids. I like Seagull a lot and sometimes I watch Staycation on Twitch.

I just wanted to share this because it was awesome. So last night I was playing with my usual crew on Apex. We'd gotten a win the night before, had an awful night before that, and got a win when we played earlier in the week. We always consider it a good evening if we manage a win.

Well last night I don't know what happened but we were all playing great and just in a groove as a group. Over the course of the evening we managed 3 wins and had another game where we finished second that came down to a tense 1v1 between my buddy and the other last man. It was just an adrenaline rush and so much fun. The problem is, that will probably be the peak for awhile.

Hills and valleys, hombre - but we come back because the vista at the top of the next hill is pretty beautiful.

I've started getting kills semi-regularly which is cool. I've never really worked at playing a shooter before so the feeling of not being massacred immediately is new to me.

I mostly play with randos except when my sister and her fiance play, so I don't expect wins, but whenever I play a game and it doesn't have a Rambo smurf on my team I feel like I'm carrying my weight.

So true, last night we came crashing back down and couldn't buy a win. A few top fives but kept getting pinched. However, today is another day.

I'm quite happy with my general 10% win ratio in BRs, but exceptionally frustrated by the 40% top 10 ratio. While the wins are what keeps the engine pumping it's those 2nd place standings that haunt you!

Really been enjoying this game so much, starting to get kills and wins fairly regularly.

Although my 'skill' pretty much depends on me getting a mastiff and/or L-star early. I've wiped whole squads with an L-star.

L-star is fantastic! Esp if learn to flutter the trigger so you never have to reload!

Have you got a regular group or just joining pubs?

I was playing with my sister and her fiance a lot, but they got a Switch and stopped playing. So if you see me online feel free to hit me up.

We are origin friends right?

We are! I'm pretty bad though. I do have one win under my belt but I was definitely carried. I'll reinstall it though and if you don't mind not winning for a bit we'll have a game!

Not a problem at all. Wins are fun, but the minute to minute gameplay is what I really like.

I'm also generally one of the lowest ranked players in my team, and in the match, so I'm interested to see what the mmr does.
