No, I did it on PS4.
It's not console but NiceWigg is pro and he plays PC with an xbox controller if you're looking for more streamers. He plays with his controller in view now as well:Hey what's up ERA? First post after a few years of lurking! Former Halo 2/3 player here. I was playing COD casually since Halo days ended, but then came Apex. I love this game. I've been playing since launch but recently decided to 'git gud.' I watched a lot of Twitch, but I realized it was watching console players specifically that helped me the most. I play on xbox, but it's pretty much the ps4 players that stream. I was watching cyqop (PC) play last night - wow.
So my goal is getting the 2k/hammer badge. I got... wait for it... 1993 damage the other day. I've gotten 19XX several times now - very frustrating! I will get it, that's for sure. It's just a matter of when. Hit me up if you want to let me thirst your downs, lol! GT is Jablonzo
That was crazy and very entertaining to watch. Makes me want to jump on right now and play actually....I almost spit my beer out of my mouth a few times at how far he could shred people with the R99.
Didn't know about this dude, thanks for sharing!
Fuuuuck, I spent all my crafting mats like two days. I would've had enough for Cowboy Mirage...
Watched more of his stream. He’s a very good player obviously but he’s unstoppable mainly with an R99 and Peacekeeper. Didn’t really see him doing much long range damage. Doesn’t seem as versatile as other players. But the fact he’s doing all this on a controller is inspiring for sure.
I said something similar the other day. The core gameplay is great but I hate the f2p aspects of it. You basically need to spend money in the game for any skins worthwhile. Also as someone that recently started playing again but on a different platform than the one I initially started on I hate how they have dailies for characters I haven't even unlocked yet. I'll keep playing cause I love the gameplay but I am interested to see what s11 brings in fortnite w/ the supposed new map rumors. I actually think fortnite has a pretty good f2p system in place. I have like 2400 vbucks and only ever purchased the battle pass once. Apex feels like they nickle and dime you for every aspect of this game but I imagine that is more EA's doing than Respawn.I think I'll try to make a general gripe post on reddit tomorrow since this seems like it'll be a topic again.
I still feel like the core game is lacking so much in the sense of actual f2p progression. The complete cutoff of apex packs at level 100 is still such crap, that happened to me in S1 and there's no dripfeed of mats or anything else. To see them let you craft a new skin for DOUBLE THE DAMN PRICE is crazy when I only have over 2400 mats because I haven't used any from the battlepasses. All of that time for...one skin? Really? Meanwhile I'm drowning in the useless legend currency.
Every new hero and gun dilutes everything. There's so many common recolors for Crypto and the Charge Rifle, a bunch of quips, banners, etc. and you are never chipping away or progressing by playing since you can't get packs without paying. It's such a rigid, bad system even if the game is free. It's a shame this event is going this way again, there's so many legitimately great cosmetics that I don't get to appreciate because it's straight up not feasible.
And to top it off I recently got an heirloom for Bloodhound. Which looks great and is neat, but I don't have the Wraith dagger and she's one of my most used characters. The heirlooms being added into the same pool actually will make it way harder to get one for a character you actually care for unless you specifically shell out a TON for a specific one, like this upcoming one for Lifeline. It's not exactly easy to even get one of these anyway.
Apex is an amazingly fun game but god damn is it disappointing when all of the wrapping like this is a mess.
The third player to pick a character will be jumpmaster, if you're the third pick and idle instead of actually selecting it'll go to someone else (unless nobody selects, then I think it's the third anyway).
