Just had 7 connection errors before getting a match. Was the server improvement patch already released?
I've ran into people within pit often? They're is a nice rotation that includes it and the little section of buildings between it and bunker should be labeled gold town. Very often it has gold items and just the other night I found three there.
I think I've ran into another team in the Pit (post drop) once in season 2? I'm always pinging to rotate there but teammates will never follow. Don't think people realize they buffed the loot drops in Pit.I've ran into people within pit often?

Pit also had decent loot.
Yeah season 2 I've had fights outside the Pit but none within. I think I got chased through it by the final team though.. haha
Ranked is super fun, and stories like that are a huge part of it. The added intensity and how much more importance it places on valuing your life, while also tactically trying to nab kills, is great I think.Ranked is a hoot.
7 squads left with the final circle closing in on Relay. My friend is the only one left.
He goes to get our death boxes, grabs one and then hears the sounds of looting. He looks up and not 30 feet away theres a fulls squad looting some death boxes. They make eye contact. He fuckin SKEDADDLES away into some buildings. Turns the corner and hides in one of those small (like 6 feet by 12 feet) shacks with the 2 entrances that sometimes have some loot in them.
It was already hilarious he managed to escape and hide but what came after was like 5 minutes of us giggling and shrieking as we saw flashes of people running RIGHT by this structure but no one looking in and finding it. Stressful but hilarious.
He ended up surviving until it was only him and 1 squad. Rushed them to try and clean up from the final fight, downed one but got caustic gasses and that was the end.
Still got 2nd place despite almost being eliminated earlier on.
I love the new ranked meta but I'm getting sick of seeing dudes holed up at the top of the cage at Thunderdome with Watson fences surrounding. The circle needs to be more random with its placement. Peeps are getting set up there early and the circle lands there alot.
The cage should drop after the game reaches a certain circle.
It takes 20 base XP levels to earn enough Legend Tokens (12,000) for a single legend. So, roughly however long it takes you to gain 20 levels worth of experience. An experience level is 18,000 xp.
Hmm, so a good amount of grinding there for the classes. With one or two games done, I think I will see how I progress and go from there. Still learning inventory stuff.It takes 20 base XP levels to earn enough Legend Tokens (12,000) for a single legend. So, roughly however long it takes you to gain 20 levels worth of experience. An experience level is 18,000 xp.
The best way to gain the most experience is by placing, as there's a 900 point XP bonus for 1st, with a smaller XP bonus for finishing top 5.
Killing the champion squad gives 500 xp per champ squad member killed, so that's a solid XP bonus too, but that's more luck/coincidence than anything.
All other in-game actions (kills, revives, damage dealt, respawns) all also give XP, but they aren't really a huge source of the XP you'll earn in a match.
You don't even need to camp. I got 6 points in silver last night after I died immediately and the last guy on my team just hid for the entire match until the top 3. All I had to do was not quit :P
Yea when that happens I don't even wanna play anymore tbh.Two consecutive match I'm in the top 3, aim at a dude from a close up with an assault rifle or something of the sort, hit him for a good second or two but the shots are not doing any damage, so they have the time to turn around, shoot at me as if I was standing still and get me down.
The game's inconsistency in terms of shooting is a bit tiring because these happened after two very prolific and action-packed games where we were melting people otherwise, but then every time a dude came out who was immune to bullets and screwed us :\
...and that's supposed to be in a BR?
Sounds like Apex Legends alright. Sound issues have plagued a lot of users experiences. I couldn’t hear a juiced Octane running in water during one my matches. What saved my ass was managing to catch a glimpse of him out the corner of my screen.
Yup. Solo Queue in Gold is still primarily hot drop/fight chasing folks. It makes the climb significantly slower through Gold than through earlier ranks. Which, in theory, is how it should be... except instead of it slowing because the matches are tougher, it's slowing because of hot drops and chasers.Just reached Gold IV. Thought teammates would be less dumb at that level. Both games I did on solo queue, I was coupled with stupid thirsty-for-kills teammates who dropped in popular crowded areas, who got downed after 2 minutes because of course they do, and rage-quit when they figured out I wasn't gonna pick their banners because that would have been just way too risky to do so in the first place. I mean, I'd rather not camp until gop3 but in those kinds of situation, what can I do even. Find more intelligent teammates, I guess, but that seems rare.
That’s a headphone/amp problem, not a game problem. Higher dynamic range is something I’m all about and your issue can’t stop that. Sorry. ;)I hate how they considerably lowered the overall volume a couple of updates ago. It was the one that got rid of the awful sound distortion, watching clips from before and after that update shows a clear sound volume difference. It makes Apex quieter then any other game and coupled with my headphones that are very quiet, max volume is not loud enough...
It's not a higher dynamic range. They lowered the volume across the board, in addition to the tweaks to footsteps and such. Master Volume within the game settings being the same before and after the patch, post-patch is lower all around. That's not a headphone/amp problem. One can adjust those settings manually just fine, but as someone who plays music and videos while I play in Solo Queue, the change is noticeable and more difficult to find a balance.
