Seriously though, I'm still on board for that game but it's going to have a rocky start for sure, especially after all of those server issues.

I'm still in and actually had a good time with both demos...even better in the Public one which I had Zero Stuck At 90% Loading Expedition Screen issues...as to turning off or away, I bet a lot of those went in hating, disliking and wanting the "Game" to fail before playing one minute. A lot just ripped the "Game" simply because it doesn't have PvP...Even after telling them the Demo wasn't a representation of the final game, they still complained.....the actual game will be fine..

I hope Apex does well......more out succeeding helps the gamer consumers out there more in the long run; be it Battle Royals, PvE, PvPvE, co-op, single player...we all benefit. It just means the Devs have to conjure up to entice and keep players coming back.

Then I played round two. Dropped in to the map, both my squad mates were killed almost immediately, and I was eliminated very shortly thereafter, while frantically picking up every piece of loot I could. And I hadn't had a chance to mute other players yet, so I got to hear one of my squad mates giving me shit over mic right after being killed.

I ESC'd right out of that game and promptly uninstalled it. At the end of the day it's just another battle royale, and I'd had enough of those fuckin things two years ago.
Pretty much the experience I just had. Friends have been raving about so I thought I'd try it. Even though I hate Battle Royale games. And I still do .

Re: Apex Legends (From Respawn)

Well...for all the Titanfall 2 fans who felt a bit disappointed and left with little or no hope of ever seeing a "Titanfall 3"...well maybe not so fast. It seems like Apex Legends has actually rekindled interest in Titanfall 2....

Apex Legends Revitalizes Titanfall Player Count

As discovered this past weekend on Reddit and video game forum Resetera, it looks like Titanfall 2's numbers got a huge jump over the weekend. Whether it's players new to the series wanting to check out the old game or fans remembering why they liked it in the first place, multiplayer appears to be hopping in a way it previously was not prior to Apex Legends' release.

Numbers for the game on PC increased from an average of 700 to 1600 to over double that at 3500 at its peak. On PlayStation 4, you could find around 4000 players over the weekend, possibly owing to the numerous sales Titanfall 2 has regularly. Fans should enjoy that multiplayer as much as they can, though, as Respawn has confirmed they are not currently developing Titanfall 3. There is, however, another Titanfall project in the works for later this year........Respawn announced today that Apex Legends boasts over 25 million players with two million concurrent players at its peak, so it looks like some amount of that is bleeding over to Titanfall 2.

Looks like I'll be checking out the Titanfall 2 Horde mode for sure now...which was really fun to get into. Maybe they'll expand stuff there....

When you're teamed with randoms, that don't communicate and go off on their own, it's a bitch.

I feel ya. I initially tried this on PC, hated it almost immediately, and uninstalled it. But after I kept hearing everyone rave about it, I decided to give it another shot on PS4. I still don't know if I like it or not. When I get a kill or two, or my squad is doing well, then it's pretty fun. When my squad completely disbands or is eliminated right at the beginning of the match, I'm ready to uninstall it again. My opinion swings dramatically from one way to the other depending on how each match goes.

I did end up on the winning squad two times yesterday, which was nice I guess, but I know I contributed next to nothing during those matches.

No, I just suck. I communicate a lot, and I've been paired with some very good players. I just can't seem to ever damage anybody and I'm averaging about a kill an hour. A good game for me I end up with 150 points of damage. I can't figure out what it is. Even when I get the drop on somebody point blank and use a shotgun or something I'm lucky if I hit them. Maybe it's lag, but I wouldn't think so as I use a wired connection.

I think I might give up on this one pretty soon if I don't get better.

Re: Apex Legends (From Respawn)

I take it back. Played about 10 rounds today (not counting the rounds where I did instantly due to not finding a weapon) and I did a lot better. Had about 10 kills and 2 squad wins. Starting to get the hang of things.

I also discovered that you can choose your server right before my last win. Was able to cut my ping down from 60 to 25 which probably helped some.

Any of you guys playing on PS4 should add me and we can try and get a group together this evening.
