You only have to wait 2mins 30 sec after banner pick up and you can leave the game without penalty.
"A notable exception to this is if your banner has been picked up and you have not respawned within 2 and a half minutes, you will not be considered abandoning if you leave."
There's been a bunch of misinformation out there about "server contracts ending," and it actually isn't true. Just misinformation.
We also had an engineer go in-depth on the tickrate question in this blog. We think there's a bunch of high-impact work we can do to improve server performance, and hopefully you've noticed some improvements with this latest season launch.
In terms of expanding into less well-covered regions, nothing to announce here. Which regions do you think need better coverage?
Pressure them to buy servers from companies that have ACTUAL, EFFECTIVE DDOS protection to start. This is now a multi billion dollar game, there’s no excuse to be renting servers from companies with terrible/non-existent DDOS protections when DDOSing has proven to be such a problem with this game. When I ran servers I rented from OVH and their DDOS protection was amazing, double digit Gbit/s attacks were unnoticeable when they occurred. They even tell you exactly how their DDOS protection works right here: https://www.ovh.com/world/anti-ddos/
We won't ever get better servers. Instead we got this blogpost, it should tell you everything you need to know. They wouldn't even have bothered to write up that post if changes were even considered.
They try to explain why more than 20hz doesn't matter for instance. Just ignore the fact that literally every other big multiplayer game out there has their servers running 60hz tickrate (or more!). They are doing it wrong according to the Apex Legends devs.
So my recommendation would be to keep your expectations in check.
It changes to every 5 levels at 300.
>The Player Level cap has been increased from 100 to 500. Players can now earn a total of 199 Apex Packs related to Player Level rewards at the following cadence:
>Level 2 - 20: One pack every level (19 Apex Packs total)
Level 22 - 300: One pack every two levels (140 Apex Packs total)
Level 305 - 500: One pack every five levels (40 Apex Packs total)
You will continue to earn 600 Legend Tokens per level and per 18,000 XP at level 500
Unsurprisingly for this sub, you have that entirely backwards:
“What happens if one of them rounds a corner, so that they can suddenly see each other? Well, LOW has the advantage here as well. LOW is less “into the past,” so they get to see HIGH first. Once again, LOW has the advantage due to their ping. This adds on to the advantage where LOW’s bullets get to the server faster.
These cases are "unfair" in the sense that LOW has an advantage, but they are "fair" in the sense that it's reasonable to expect that the player with lower ping would get the advantage in this situation.
Now, what happens if LOW goes behind a corner to get into cover? Well, HIGH is still in the past when LOW is not covered, so HIGH can shoot LOW before they get into cover, but LOW won't find out about it until HIGH's packets have made it to the server and then to LOW. By this time, LOW sees that they’re safely in cover, yet LOW still got hit. From LOW's perspective, this is a bit of nonsense.”
> Bangalore is a pilot, clear past military experience .... I think Bangalore was sent into the game to infiltrate and gather information, learning the layout of Kings Canyon while feeding information back to the other Organization.
Bangalore is not a pilot, she's an IMC grunt who was sent on a mission to retrieve a merc fleet. Her and her team were ambushed leaving her stranded and out of contact with the IMC. She joined the Apex games to earn money to get back home to her family.
Her backstory is here
That's actually an official concept art. It is on the Octane page on Apex's website but I don't think it was that one I was thinking about.
You can get one!
Granted, the shipping time is like three weeks from UK -> Western US, but mine should be showing up soon and I'm pretty excited
OP did not drew this but he is taking credit for it - this is official Respawn art, he just used 3 buttons in a mobile app.
Anyone can do this and it involves literally no skill at all using this app or many more like this:

Oh boy, here we go again. What blew up this time? My bet is on Runoff.
Also new weapon, seems just like my type, I'm hyped.

"Use your Ultimate and Tactical abilities wisely, as you’ll have a limited number of uses each round, instead of recharging indefinitely like other modes. Legends start with some Tactical charges, but additional charges and Ultimate abilities can be purchased with materials when customizing your loadout. This allows more Legends to be made viable in Arenas, and forces characters with very strong tacticals (like Bloodhound) to make choices between weapon upgrades or more tactical charges.
Don’t worry, unused Ultimate and Tactical charges will carry over to the next round."
Check the season 9 launch patch notes. It literally says that white helmets and knockdowns are out of the loot pool. here
My man just use google and do some basic math, stop being a weirdo.
This shows that $5 of each $25 bundle went towards the prize pool. Prize pool was originally 1 mil, boosted up to 2.5 with skin sales, meaning 1.5 mil was added. If 1.5 is 1/5th of the total amount made, then 7.5 million dollars were made from these 4 skins. Happy?
you have not. here is proof.
There are voice lines in the game for pinging enemy titans, reapers, and other NPC enemies from the titanfall games. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2KSyDM3mKo8
You can bind these voice lines in your settings.cfg, for example bind_US_standard "l" "cmd ClientCommand_Quickchat 118" 0binds L to ping titans. There's other pings here which includes other enemy types.
bind_US_standard "l" "cmd ClientCommand_Quickchat 118" 0
There's been a recurring joke in a couple of out-of-game pieces about a particular mushroom-fueled escapade that Mirage had with a pumpkin one night.
-novid in launch options if you're on PC to get rid of those logo videos. also always check pcgamingwiki for essential fixes like that. On PC you can remove intro videos in pretty much any title either by launch commands or deleting/renaming the intro files.

I know you're getting alot of love here already, but I want to toss my love into that lot. Gamedev is tricky business, especially on this scale, and toxicity is inevitable.
Onto my question. The main thing I think everyone points to is just the scattered message. I hate to compare your game to another one, but Destiny 2 had this exact same problem during Year 1 and 2, it was actively destroying their community. The solution they landed on, which has been working really well for the past 2 years was their weekly This Week At Bungie (TWAB) blog. These posts contain some info about major known issues, planned reworks and re-balances (even if they're months out), community highlights and such like that.
The usage of this blog has completely revitalized their community, everyone who cares about the game waits for those with baited breath, knowing they're going to hear a bit about what's going on in the studio. It's served its job as a central info hub very well, and I really think it would behoove your studio to do something similar. (Note, I know you have the blog here but this area currently just serves as marketing info, not real in-studio news)
tl;dr: What are your thoughts on a weekly in-studio produced blog being your central point of contact?
But they do permanently kill people in the lore. It's something important in Lifeline's backstory that makes her a deeper character.
This is the original post from Respawn
> We’ll be giving out gun charms, badges, and dive trails again based on the highest tier achieved this Ranked Series. However, from here onward, dive trails will be temporary for all future series. This is to help alleviate the visual space when everyone is dropping to the map, because as it stands now there would eventually be too many trails and they would lose their meaning. For example, if you place Apex Predator in Ranked Series 3, you will have the Apex Predator dive trail available for the duration of Series 4, then it will be removed. Players who earned any dive trail in Series 1 or 2 will be grandfathered in, and will keep the trails forever. We currently plan for a set of 4 dive trails that return in a cyclical fashion every year, so for example, players can get the chance to earn the same dive trails in Ranked Series 3 and in future Ranked Series 7 a year from now, while another set will be available to earn for Ranked Series 4 and Ranked Series 8, and so forth.
If it was changed back at some point, I never heard about it. I've always thought this was still the case. I can't find anything official saying they went back to permanent trails as a ranked reward.
Everything in that Gaming Merchant video contradicts my own personal experience with ranked arenas points.
Nothing in the official explanation mentions anything about AP or MMR being affected by doing higher damage, getting more kills, having fewer deaths, having a higher win-rate, going on win streaks, etc.
Respawn just announced L-Star info plus changes to ammo stacks, new hop-ups, arc star adjustments and more!
What you guys think? Sounds good to me overall!
just look for low ms and either IPS if you care about colors or viewing angles or TN if you don't
edit: this one from acer is 1080p, for pc use it can reach 75hz and supports AMD freesync, it's IPS and 4ms response time (anything 5 or under is good enough for gaming) for only 90 bucks
It's in his legend profile in the official website: https://www.ea.com/games/apex-legends/about/characters/makoa-gibraltar
> Many of Gibraltar’s friends and colleagues have competed in the Games for extra money, fame, and glory over the years, and some never came home. Gibraltar joined to keep them safe and, for the first time, his skills as a rescuer and his rebellious nature worked together.
This is Bangalore's backstory
If you scroll down that page some you'll see The Frontier War Cover-up, which is recently added and directly contradicts what has been on her page.
Her story has been her and brother and the rest of the squad are on a mission and ambushed. Squad scatters, brother fights off attackers so Bang can make a getaway. She doesn't know what happens to him.
This new piece of lore. The Frontier War thing, suggests he dies when their ship gets hit after a mission and he got sucked out.
So.... to answer your question, yes Apex has lore. But it doesn't look like it'll have much consistency and can change anytime.

This timer was added in Season 4, it just doesn't show. After 2.5 minutes you can safely leave, the penalty notice will disappear.
> Abandon: Leaving a match before it is over for you, while you do not have loss forgiveness. "Before it is over for you" is defined as the player is still able to play, e.g. you are still alive, or you are dead but waiting to be respawned etc. A notable exception to this is if your banner has been picked up and you have not respawned within 2 and a half minutes, you will not be considered abandoning if you leave.
> then complaining they aren't making enough money to upgrade servers?
They never said they don't have enough money to do it. They just said that they simply won't do it and gave a laundry list of reasons why their networking structure is perfectly fine. Spoiler: it's not.
That's not true.
You get tokens every level, but completely stop earning Apex packs after hitting max level.
199 free packs from leveling, that's all you get, no more no less.
edit: lmao several people downvoting an easily verifiable fact. 199 packs from leveling and then no more.
>he only began to understand the value of protecting others when he and his boyfriend stole his father’s motorcycle
You can check the bio of Gibraltar he likes dudes
No, we can't, because if you would do this to a fictional character you would also do it to a real person.
On the official EA Apex Legends wiki, Bloodhound is referred to as "they". Respawn has said that Bloodhound being addressed in game as "she" is a bug, and false.
You're the mental one here, because you can't do something as simple as saying "them" instead of "her". You keep saying "for me it's a she", but when it comes to ones gender, your opinions are invalid.
From EA's website, this is no doubt the new Light ammo LMG, and with the rumor that Spitfire is going into carepackage and being replaced by Prowler on ground loot, this is certainly the LMG replacing it for Rampart mains and LMG pool in general. I for one absolutely love this thing, simply because out of any baseline skin and modeling for a gun it looks so beautiful, maybe on par with the devotion or r-301 for me. Hope it doesnt absolutely suck!!
Each box has a less then 1% chance to give shards, it seems to roll before the crate is opened so if it gives you shards the crate will still be on your inventory (neat)
What are the drop rates for items of a specific rarity in an Apex Pack?
Probability of at least one:
Seems that i was wrong on my point about shards, thanks for the tip.
The tl;dr is "we aren't changing anything for ranked because we feel it's working perfectly fine". You may not remember because they split it into this little blog on its own and didn't mention ranked at all in the Dev stream or the patch notes.
edit: I reread it, and to be fair they do say "we're looking into exciting ways to change ranked" at the bottom, but...that's very generic and doesn't mention the giant issues a lot of us are having re: good matchmaking (like silver versus predator) or smurfs all over the place.
The dive trail was the sole reason I grinded ranked this season, not knowing they will ONLY go to Master/Predator ranks (top 0.4%). My stupid fault for missing that tidbit of information when the season began, but dang does it suck.
I figured they removed it because the number of people in diamond was too high, but 2.5% of the playerbase doesn't seem like a lot to me.
For anyone wondering where I got the data: here is the link
There are short character bios on the official website for the game.
Gibraltar is gay. As far as I know, he was gay from the moment the game/site launched.
Bloodhound is a mystery entrant, anonymous and shrouded in wild rumors. No one in-universe or out has the slightest idea what's between his/her/its legs or who he/she/it might wish to have sex with.
Amazon doesn't work?
It seems they sell 1000 apex coins. I don't know if it's real, but I believe it is.
hey what up guys here's the intro 1m later and just so you know I'm going for 10 thousand likes this video so go ahead and smash that like button let me know what you guys think in the comments below, head on over to my instagram, youtube, twitch, facebook and twitter cause i'll be doing a giveaway at the end of this month. NordVPN is a VPN service where...
No she reloads faster too. try it out in the firing range, but careful when swapping characters with an LMG equipped, it'll keep her mag size and reload speed untill you pick up a new gun. Check the bottom right of the screen, you should see a graphic indicating her passive is active
For anyone saying you can block grenades with objects, it was supposed to be fixed some time ago. SEASON 8: MAYHEM PATCH NOTES:
I played a few rounds on a Sydney server (I'm in Europe) with a 300ms ping at the beginning of the season when all servers were down.
It worked surprisingly well. I could play as usual and got a hit marker for every shot that I actually hit. The feedback was just very delayed. I hit an enemy, but the hit marker came about a second late. I guess it's the same for the enemies (or half a second if they have proper pings).
I understand that it feels bad getting killed behind cover, but it's actually working really well if you accept that it's delayed feedback.
There's been a blog post about how this stuff exactly works by Respawn developers lately.
Although they did explain why problems with servers occurs.
I don't want to come off as rude, but honestly I don't care what they do to farm RP, my problem with this is that a platinum player should NEVER be playing against top tier players in a balanced ranked environment. I need 4800 RP to be in platinum, they need at least 10000 RP to hit masters/pred.
My squad was made of another plat 4 and a gold 2. We can't possibly learn how to be better players if this is what we're up against every other game. I wouldn't mind waiting in queue a bit longer for more balanced matchmaking, which ironically is what respawn said they would do to higher tier lobbies here.
It was a bug fix. It wasn't intentional.
and if you check his character introduction video he was fully invisible when he used his ultimate.
I have so much fun translating Mirage's dating profile into Chinese. What an adorable character. I hope there will be a female Legend having romantic relationship with him in the future.
Dont call pressing 2 buttons in an app "project"
App that OP used:
A monkey can do this.
"<em>...Starting at Platinum, you won't be able to queue for Ranked Arenas with party members more than 1 tier away. This means that Platinum players can queue with Gold but not with Silver party members....</em>"
^ ...LOL but if platinum & higher players don't queue with a full party, matchmaking gives them bronze & silver random teammates (or even teammates still in placement matches) who die fast & first every round, setting the entire team up to fail & get de-ranked from AP loss.
This system seems like it was a rushed afterthought.
"Slightly Reduce vertical recoil in burst mode
Increase horizontal recoil in Auto Mode "
That's straight from the season 6 patch notes, you're wrong. Check them for yourself if you don't believe me: https://www.ea.com/games/apex-legends/news/season-6-patch-notes

here you go. imagine DICE telling the people higher tickrate servers won't alleviate their problems. I still can't comprehend the fact that instead of solving problems they decide to write this statement after all this time. What a fucking shitshow. Knowing EA and how things go I think we are seeing the beginning of the end and sooner or later Respawn gets taken to the EA backyard to "live on the farm upstate"
It was in the season patch notes (dev note under Mirage changes) https://www.ea.com/games/apex-legends/news/ascension-patch-notes
However I believe the idea was elaborated on in an interview/talk they did with the season launch, but it's a lot harder to search for an excerpt from a stream, so I can't locate it!
The letter on the cork board next to the Bamboozles, is this one from her father.
If anyone is curious what the letter on the desk says, I took the liberty of transcribing;
> Hey, Li'l Sis,
> Gibraltar here. Hope the sun's starting to shine for you again. I know you didn't wanna hear anything about Caustic before, and I respect that. You don't have to read this letter now - or ever. Read it tomorrow. Read it next year. Throw it in the trash and never read it at all, but I think you have a right to know the truth. I bet it would mean a lot to Crypto if you did - but right now what matters most is what you want and how you feel. I think you deserve to know, but no matter what, it's okay. Gibraltar still loves you!
> Caustic told me the truth: He betrayed Loba. He didn't like what she doing. I can't say she went about it the best way, but putting her in Revanant's path was wrong. He hurt a lot of people in the process - like you. You deserve an apology, but that's not Gibraltar's to give.
> Picking Crypto to take the fall wasn't an accident. I don't know what's going on in Caustic's head, but he has it out for the kid. Now, I'll be honest - I think it has something to do with you, but it's not your fault li'l sis, you let them sort it out. You just do you - and you decide who gets to be there while you do it. That's all Gibraltar's got. If you need to talk, let me know. Always here with an ear and a big bear hug, haha!
> Yours truly,
Where did OP even get his claim from? It clearly states on the official page this skin is event LIMITED. It’s not an exclusive skin.
Do me a favor, go on your favorite chart site and check out the short float percentage on GME. Then compare that to other heavily shorted stocks like TSLA, BB, AMC, NOK, and LK.
Actually no, let me operate the screener for you.
Out of those 8 companies with a greater than 80% short float percentage, GME has the highest by a vast margin. That means that even if everyone holding GME right now sold their shares, those same shares would have to be sold another 1.2 times to cover the shorts, assuming no new short positions loaded in.
I understand that the internet has a short memory due to beating dead horses into paste. This has been going on for 4 days, which in internet time is about 8.7 million years. But if someone buys and holds GME, they can expect that the squeeze as options come due over the next 3 weeks will keep pressuring the stock price higher.
And the other thing is that if you buy the stock, just forget about it. These hedge funds are apprehensive because they painted themselves into a corner and there is theoretically enough balanced on this one stupid trade to cause the price to hit BRK-A levels, which would collapse about 70% of major hedge funds due to the unlimited losses from naked shorts and naked option writing.

Found on the EA website: "Monsters Within Packs are available for a limited time during the Monsters Within Event, but the items will always be available in the standard Apex Pack pool of items"
Actually, a few months ago, Respawn put out a blog post explaining how the server tickrate they use is good for the game, citing how it would bridge the gap between low ping and high ping players. (As a South African, it does not help. )
Edit: Hyperlinked the post.
Not sure if you can read this paragraph and comprehend what it means, but knock yourself out. I hope you someday come to grips with OTHER people’s sexuality. Maybe you should experiment I’m sure there’s a lot about yourself you are suppressing
Dude, they literally said it: https://www.ea.com/games/apex-legends/news/arenas-ranked
>This also means that in Ranked Arenas there’s no demotion protection—you can demote a ranked tier, going from Plat IV to Gold I after a loss, for example. Don’t worry though, you will still get rewards at the end of the season based on your highest tier reached.
Disclaimer: "highest tier" does not include Predator, that rank must be maintained in order to get the rewards.
No they did not turn off aim assist
>To maintain competitive integrity, all controller players will be competing using PC-value aim assist settings, regardless of their platform.
Create a healthier top end in Diamond+. Diamond, Master and Predators are reserved for the best of the best. We don’t want to change that. But, we do want these players competing against more players of similar skill, more often. In previous seasons, the player pool in Diamond+ was too small to consistently provide fair matches, so we aim to improve this by providing more opportunities for good players to earn RP
Players below Diamond will matchmake much more often within their own Ranks.

When you say basic, how basic are you looking for? Because Adobe has a free video editing app called Adobe Premiere Clip in the Google Play store.
There are also other apps like YouCut that does similar stuff as well
Where do you get that idea? About 1/4-1/3 of my lobbies are console, in Duos partnered with another guy on PC.
PC lobbies are forced crossplay; we can't turn off crossplay, and regardless of party composition we can fight anything EXCEPT a squad of only console players. If a premade party has any PC players, they'll be in PC lobbies.
See: https://www.ea.com/games/apex-legends/amp/news/season-6-aftermarket-event for full details.
This is the quote you're basing this statement on:
> Now, all console players will play together, and PC players will continue to play only with other PC players.
But the next line completely invalidates it for PC players:
> If, however, an Xbox One or PlayStation 4 player and PC player party up together, they will be put into PC matches. This ensures that the console games don’t have PC players in them, but still allows for the console player to play with their PC friend if they opt-in.
This is literally written on EA's website :
But since you're a child that can't accept that they were wrong you'll find a way to deny this
Far as I know, that shouldn't have happened.
"A notable exception to this is if your banner has been picked up and you have not respawned within 2 and a half minutes, you will not be considered abandoning if you leave."
Was this reverted or changed in a later season? The introduction of the arenas leaver penalty has made google'ing for answers a bit more complicated, but as someone who doesn't leave games until the squad is wiped, I only have what others say and patch notes indicate to go on.
Respawn recently released a post about their netcode and all that stuff works. They also explain kicks and slo mo servers. Link here if you are interested: https://www.ea.com/games/apex-legends/news/servers-netcode-developer-deep-dive?isLocalized=true
Her character bio says she's into women.
> But even though she had her ladies, her liquor, and her love of the sky, she was still obsessed
This has nothing to do with your team mate, its a known issue , sometimes you get into a slo-mo server. You can read about it here : https://www.ea.com/games/apex-legends/news/servers-netcode-developer-deep-dive
Agreed! It just adds layers to the gameplay and a few more possibilities, so I'm definitely down for this kind of stuff. Just reading through the patch note, it feels a bit "OP" on paper with all those bonuses, but maybe people will be able to shoot through it or something.
It won't be sold separate, bundle only.
If I were you, I wouldn't support these kinds of predatory anti-consumer monetization schemes.
It'll just happen more and more if people buy into it.
I copied the text from EA website.
Now that you know how to find, invite, and play with friends, I think it’s also important to talk about how cross-play matchmaking works.
Before cross-play, each platform would only play with and against other users on the same platform. Now, all console players will play together, and PC players will continue to play only with other PC players. We want to ensure that keyboard and mouse PC players are not being matched against console players, for reasons that should be obvious.
If, however, an Xbox One or PlayStation 4 player and PC player party up together, they will be put into PC matches. This ensures that the console games don’t have PC players in them, but still allows for the console player to play with their PC friend if they opt-in.
But here’s the link
Crossplay is enabled by default, you can opt out. There's literally no reason to opt out though.
You'll never play with any PC players unless you invite one into you squad
> I don’t really have an amazing KD
That's the thing though, compared to Preds you don't have an amazing K/D. Compared to everyone else... you do. 70% of the player base is Gold or below The average player sucks and the vast majority don't even a manage a 1.0 K/D
not true, season 3 preds ("ranked series 2") was when dashboarding was crazy. season 2 pred ("ranked series 1") only had 0.2% preds
In the patch notes, it says that you can do it with his drone only, with the plus side that is instant, and you can use respawn beacons instantly as well.
I dont know how to make it smaller, let alone on mobile.
A death box MUST have a name. Normally, it would be a name of a squadmate. But since these are not from squad mates, they need some other name.
Putting a name of your friend on there makes it sound like "Oh, my friend played, and this dragon stole his loot, and now I got it back!"
But if you don't have any friends on Origin, they need to generate some name. So they decided to use it as a sort of improvised credits area.
... would have been better if they listed the Voice Artists, since they are not listed in the credits, but I guess Respawn doesn't think that voice artists deserve it, considering the credits begin with:
> A huge thanks to everyone who put their heart and soul into creating Apex Legends.
"Apex Legends currently has one bonus Heirloom Set available, which contains three items for Wraith. When a player opens an Apex Pack, there is a <1% probability of an Heirloom Set dropping. Heirloom Set drops do not deduct an Apex Pack from your inventory. Heirloom Sets cannot be crafted with Crafting Metals. A player cannot open more than 500 Apex Packs without receiving an Heirloom set (assuming the player does not own all of the available Heirloom Sets). Once a player owns all of the Heirloom Sets, the player will not be eligible for this bonus until more Heirloom Sets are added to the game."
The banner for Season 1. It's on EA's website as well as just about everything else Apex related.
Little tough to make out because red-on-red but the Leviathans are in the background and they're on the map. There's also a broken repulsor tower in that picture.
Also, there's stuff in the Season 1 trailer. If you look closely around the 30 second mark, where Bangalore runs into Skulltown, there's a few things that hint there's more to come this season.
For starters, Bang is using a legendary skin on her weapon... specifically the one with Wattsons name on it, maybe hinting Wattson coming soon. There's also a Pathfinder on one of the roofs firing a new weapon, the L-Star. And there's a swarm of flyers in the sky, so environmental hazards might be on the way.
They've only officially stated once in the ''what makes apex tick'' article.
Same was said with battlefield but after community backlash they increased it.
