Andrew Wilson, CEO: Obviously, Apex is a new live service, which we will invest heavily to try to continue to grow that business. We view that as a annual shooter franchise effectively, and we're trying to build that as a 10-year business, not a one year or two year business. And we're very excited about the roadmap that the Respawn team has put in place.
Question: One thing that was not mentioned was Titanfall 3, and has that been sort of integrated now into Apex Legends? Is that's still being looked at as a separate title?
Andrew Wilson: It's a -- certainly, it could be a separate title in the future. We really want to keep the team hyper-focused on Apex because we see there's so much opportunity there. But -- so I can't give you a sense of if and when it will come. But we're still a great brand and we certainly won't forget about it down the road.
Blake Jorgensen, COO/CFO: The key with Apex as any live service is test and learn test and learn. So as Andrew described, we are continuing to add new events in each season to try to understand the spending patterns and what people like to spend money on and how much they'll spend. And we'll then tune those events over time. So there is going to be holiday-themed events like the Halloween event that's going on now. There are going to be competitive style events, there are going to be gameplay style events and then events associated with new characters or as you saw in this season and the new map. All of that is along the lines of continuing to try to grow and build the number of players, the weekly average users, the frequency of play and the monetization that falls out of all those combined together. And that -- there is a process that we've done over the last 11 years in Ultimate Team, and I think we've gotten pretty good at it. And we're pretty excited about how we're doing that with Apex. So more to come, but I think we're heading in a very positive path there.
Damn. I know its an earnings call but while it shows Apex is important, its scary how the conversation is about getting the client base to fork over as much money as possible.
I still don't buy sbmm in pub queue. I'm barely gold and I get games with Predators all the time
90% of my games are the opposite experience. If you don't drop train, there's nothing left later. Very rarely have I seen an unlooted train after the first minute or two of a match. And my squad almost always gets at least 1 or 2 purple shields and a couple of phoenix kits on train.why do people insist on landing on the train? there’s barely enough loot for one person, let alone more than one squad. hot dropping onto it is basically guaranteeing that one or more of your team are instantly dead. it’s better to try and catch the train during the match when you’ve already got a body shield and a weapon.
yeah it’s rare to not have it looted at the beginning of the match, but there’s still a chance - especially if the initial route isn’t heading past Capitol, which it usually is. i’ve had a few games where the train started on the very far edge of the map, and when it came past it hadn’t been looted yet. but either way, i never find that there’s enough on it for 3 people, especially - it’s just a really inconsistent place to land. i’d rather just hot drop into Capitol, because i feel there at least i’ll be able to grab body armour and a weapon - not just one or the other.90% of my games are the opposite experience.

I added like 30 or so randoms this season after good games and they're literally never here when I'm playing lolNot really excited about Duos, but hey, at least I'm glad they're gonna be some for the people that wanna play that way.
I keep having real bad teammates in pub, and being paired with level 30 something people who don't listen to anything at all, and this is honestly wearing me down. Most of the people in my friendlist who used to play Apex, don't play anymore, so... yeah. I'm being solo a lot, and that's difficult.

At least my battlepass grind is going well, I'm level 65 or 66, don't remember which. And yes, I still haven't bought it anyway.
what platform do you play on Delphine? there’s a couple of us from this thread that occasionally play together on PS4. not promising that i’m particularly great at the game - but i do try and communicate properly with mics in a premade squad, which helps a lot.This is literally me every two games. Major fail of today was my team third-partying a tons of squads near the end of the game. We're in train yard, came from the tunnel under, took the stairs, I downed several people from different teams and keep pushing, the whole place is a cemetery full of death boxes, there's one enemy left standing so I keep pushing, after playing cat and mouse with him for 20 seconds he finally puts me down, I then notice my team was... looting 50m away instead of pushing with me. I scolded them, the enemy thirsted me in the meantime, they finally realized what had happened, tried to came to the rescue, the enemy downed one of them, the ring started moving, the enemy died to it and so did one of my teammates. The third one made it to safety, healed themselves and went for our banners. It was honestly an easy save, but they didn't run and didn't slide while in the storm, and died a centimeter away from the ring after having picked our banners. It was like looking at a car crash in utterly slow motion. Anybody could have retrieved our banners easily had they been running, hiding weapons and sliding. Our banners were really that close.
There was one team left in the game, and they won by doing nothing. It was a game that I feel we could have easily won, if only my teammates had had more than two braincells and didn't spend their time looting as if they were little loot goblins attracted by everything that shines.
Sometimes, it be like that. But these days it feels like it's always like that. Me having to deal with people who apparently barely know how to play the game, that I have to hard carry and that I absolutely can't rely on for anything whatsoever, not even the very bare minimum that anybody at any skill level should be able to provide. It's exhausting.
Reached Diamond this morning, with plenty of time to spare compared to last season. Gonna go for that Predator run now.
The flow of my sessions is completely different on this map. Most games our squad dies before top 10, but a few good runs here and there are enough to make all of it up very quickly. They've got a great thing going with the assist system and I hope they keep it that way.

Hopefully we can catch some games again some time ! My hours are shitty but surely we'll cross paths at some point
First solo game in Plat yesterday and I had a Pathfinder who didn’t get a body shield or weapon for the whole first round of the match even after me and the other teammate kept pinging them. He of course died instantly in our first fight with 24 damage total. How the hell do these people make it into plat?
Hadn't seen this final ring before. Definitely the coolest ring I've seen on World's Edge, especially considering how many teams remained and had to converge. Head on a swivel!
Pinging might be a little confusing, haha. We're a regular team in a party and I'm marking where I've seen a team and where they might travel, not telling us to move.
Can I join too? I'm not particularly skilled either, but I know when to shoot - and most importantly when not to shoot.
pop is a friend request if you want, same name as on here!

Thanks ! Took me three weeks to get through Plat, which isn't that bad considering I got through a nightmarish losing streak for a full week where I lost like 800 RP (coincidentally it was when we started playing together, you witnessed me at my worst lol). But yeah that's pretty much the only mode I played, it requires too much focus to do other things imo. Gave up on the event very quickly because of the lack of interesting rewards anyway.Congratz on reaching Diamond, wew! Must have been a grind. I'm still stuck on Platinum 4, but I'm not at the bottom anymore? I think I have 150 points, and knowing me that's a feat, so I'm proud! I'm not playing ranked much though, so I should get back to it and keep on grinding, because I think I could managed to push through as well, if I invest enough time in it.
Yeah, wasn't personally inferring "team deathmatch confirmed!" from "TEA-", haha. Just wanted to credit the poster.
