Funnything, I told them around 2 weeks after launch this would happen if they didn't change things.

The TTK needed changing,it isn't casual friendly and good players will get bored due to lack of challenge.
It lacked content. They needed more content with season 1 including a map.
The season pass needed to incentivise the 'free' players, which it didn't even try to.
Trackers needed removing as rewards.
Rank 1 to 100 needed to reset each season.

There were other things too.

Typical EA though. Didn't listen.

I really expected them to have released another map by now. I would've still been playing if they had.

The TTK is part of what makes it great
While they can't match Fortnite's content releases they also can't go more than a month
The battle pass doesn't even incentive paid players. Its just awful
Even if the ranks didn't reset they should at least go past 100 even if that means making it every 5 levels for a box. If they were going to have them stop coming they should have stuffed the battle pass full of them.

It really could benefit more from a new map as they could add even more squads but it needs a lot of things. They could have added new guns, a change to the map, solos, duos, or modes where you have no legend limits. In almost 3 months all they have added is 1 gun, 1 legend, and a lot of bugs.

But at the end of the day you can't please everyone. People that love the game wouldn't want that changed.

But there is a middle ground where the majority are happy.

I mean 7/8 shots with the R301 and that is before armour is ridiculous.

The Spitfire, the hardest hitting weapon outside snipers, shotties, wingman, takes 8 shots to kill just basic level 1 armour wearers. Couple that ridiculousness with movement speed,& armour recharging and you're left with frustrating gameplay.

That belief isn't really based on anything though. Its like when people wanted Fortnite to get rid of the building.

This is part of what sets Apex apart

It isn't what sets it apart, though. The Legends, abilities and movement set it apart from oghers in the genre. That is like saying the crap TTK in Battlefield 1 is what set it apart.

The belief that any middle ground exists where the majority will be happy.

Part of what sets it apart I said. Of course it is.

And yet it happens all the time. PUBG had many times where this happened, from zone time and damage to weapon balancing.

I know you said part of....doesn't change anything.

The TTK is the worst thing in this game....except for maybe the forced group thing.

There is no evidence that people that actually love the game don't love that also so any significant changes there make no sense.

Yeah I love the TTK. The game is just awesome fun. Battlepass is weak though.

Pathfinder is my favorite legend by far.

I really liked the game, I quit playing because none of my friends played more than the first few weeks. I don’t like playing BR games solo that much or with randoms.

Hit me up anytime you feel like playing. It's usually just me or me and my buddy.

I'm just not a fan of Battle Royale. I don't game as much anymore to begin with, so when you toss in the randomness of BR games, mainly what you will find in your loadout when you go up against that first enemy, means it's just not a genre for me. I did start playing it when it first game out and had some fun with it, like I did with Blackout, but the fact that after the first week people already had thousands of kills, 10-15 ranks higher than me, etc., means there's just no way to compete. When I've got 30 mins to an hour to game at night, jumping in only to find a grenade and die to someone already half kitted out after only a minute isn't the way I want to spend my time.

Edit: I'll add that I did try a few matches after the pass came out but it did nothing for me. If they added a ranked mode for plebs such as myself I might be more interested in trying it. At this point though it's probably mostly try hards so no thanks.

And yet the outcome looks bleak. Loving the TTK of a dying game isn't going to get you far.

Not too mention that you have no idea what it would change to or if you would actually like it or not. I already know the TTK is crap and any reduction in it is an improvement.

BR games with randoms is horrible. Really not sure why 'teamwork' is such an alien concept to gamers.

Halo isn't so big these days. Maybe it needs to lower its TTK too.

While we are at what happened to Blackout? Sounds like it needs to raise the TTK.

Really? So you think being a dick and throwing around nonsensical comparisons will help.

The game isn't as popular as it was the first few weeks but calling it dead is an over statement IMO. There isn't a BR out there outside of Fortnite that keeps a huge and consistent following.

A buddy and I was playing Hot Pursuit in Blackout last night and the couple matches we played our randoms would drop across the map every time even when we marked an area.

I just don’t get people that play team modes in MP shooters as a solo without a care for their teammates or the objective.

Its only nonsensical because you know how Halo is supposed to play and you accept it and you think everyone else should too. What if I did have a problem with it and suggested that its obviously bad?

This is how this game is supposed to play. Its not meant to be a game of who shoots first wins.

No. It is nonsensical because the comparison isn't remotely similar.

Nobody said it had to play that way. I'm just saying 10 hits to kill in a game where getting to safety is easy and healing health and armour is quick is not condusive to longevity amoung the masses. This isn't a difficult concept....there is a reason why games are moving away from that long TTK and games like R6S and PUBG are so popular. s***, look at the uproar in BF5 over the TTK changes.

You know if they did reduce it for that reason everyone would complain and blame EA and say they were dumbing it down for the lowest common denominator.

Why do you want every game to be the same? Maybe Epic should have listened to the people that hated building and made Fortnite more like PUBG?

And even though you don't like it I have to go there again. If that is what everyone wants then shouldn't Halo lower its TTK too?

Epic should listen. Nobody said you can't have another playlist.


Nobody is trying to make it the same as everything else, stop being overdramatic.


Put it this way, if they don't start making key changes this game will continue to tumble. That benefits nobody.
