    I installed this game to give it a go. The first match as soon as I land the game crashes. The second match me and my squad are just roaming about randomly but somehow we end up being one of the two surviving squads, two of us are dead and our last guy is heading to the respawn point, but instead he freezes up somehow and gets killed. The other guy in the squad tells me that his game crashed. Two matches later nothing much of significance happened as we get killed right out of the gate. Then during my fourth match the game crashes again during the jumping phase.

    Apparently I must be one of the handful of people to have to deal with this shit, because complaints about crashes don't seem to be as global. Basically, screw this game.

    That's the 2010s Western equivalent of the blood type in 80s/90s Japanese games.

    Is there any real evidence that there are so many players or are we just supposed to take EA's word for it?

    LoL this seams like a 100% lie to me. They saw that their stock prices improved when they twatted about having 10 mil and decided to just triple the number.

    I feel dirty inside because I'm having fun with this game. It just feels wrong to enjoy a game on Origin in 2019.

    Funny. Makes me wonder how the office in EPIC looks now, because I'm assuming those people comes from the Fortnite crowd.

    The SJW-nonsense aside, it actually looks pretty fun. Was watching my brother play it, and unlike Fortnite and other BR games out there, mechanically/design-wise there's more than your usual fare to take into consideration, like height, mobility, noise, and situational weapon choice. Mechanically it feels more like an ET-Tribes hybrid than Fortnite and PUBG, with some Overwatch stuff thrown into the mix.

    That being said, while I'd like to give it a try, I refuse to install Origin on my PC.

    I tried it the other day after a friend installed it. The mechanics seemed fun and I liked the weapons. But then I entered the actual game.

    Holy fuck. Maybe I just had shitty luck but, for three games in a row, my team just scattered to the winds. Each asshole went a different way instead of sticking around to help one another. Without fail I got eliminated within the first five minutes.

    I'm just going to throw it on the 'Cool game ruined by forced play with shitty people' pile.

    Yep, being free means that the players will leave in a month. Because that's how the market works. That's why Fortnite is such a huge flop.

    Yeah these games are much more fun if you have a few people who you can play with.

    And so it begins...
    Some forum users are complaining that the thread is being censored with posts being deleted. No way! Who would do that?

    About the game, played for a bit and had some fun but something seems wrong. It feels like I am in a dream because I can't see squat over 50ft and guns don't work.
    I feel that most bullets dissappear mid air.

    I complained about the lack of white characters before the game even released ;)

    Crispy actually had a funny comment about this saying I wanted to appropriate his white culture by wanting white characters. That was p. funny.

    EDIT: BTW, you guys know that now the "gaming journos" are criticizing Apex Legends for being diverse for "cynical reasons"? Kotaku just put up an article saying they only went woke in order to appease them, that Apex Legends' "wokeness" is too "calculated".

    LOL there is literally no winning with SJWs

    About the distance sight it's a little blurry from a certain distance. I see movement but I can barely tell what i am shooting.

    In regards to the shooting sometimes I get lots of floating numbers when shooting from a far and sometimes I get nothing from emptying a shotgun in cqb.
    Maybe my aim is slow and rusty and the shotguns have a tight spread or I had some lag issues.

    I'll say one thing: this game is miles ahead of Fortnite and PUBG from the pure gameplay perspective.

    I didn't like Titanfall 1 but really really dug 2. The campaign has this impeccable flow and confident pacing that's unrivaled by any modern AAA shooter singleplayer. It doesn't have the most intricate level or encounter design, but it rarely stops you for nonsense stuffs and let you gunfight like a dancer. Multiplayer definitely shines too.

    This game, the map looks pretty good, it has that fantasy millitary edge with nice blending color palettes. My problem is how the hell do you go from this

    Both characters have phase shift ability, but the first one while unnamed has a more distinct look with robotic limbs sticking out their clothes and equipment giving out "pilot's soul trapped inside machinery" vibe, while the girl (called Wraith I think?) while having a real identity for some reason looks more like generic Lilith-type from Borderlands. And don't get me started on the medic girl.

    Gunplay is good, too bad it has shitty moba abilities, and it's centered around "teamwork". You can't do that with random strangers, I developed an allergy to every MP that doesn't have a solo mode.

    Simple. Game is free to play yet needs to generate revenue. If people like that character they will want skins and other cosmetic fun things for her and are more inclined to spend money/time on the game. The more time they spend the more likely they'll spend money anyway too. So you gotta make characters that are visually catching, have their own personality/background, skins that change enough, etc. You like this person? Yeah you do, look at this skin that's super cool and different from everyone else's skin for them.

    Game is actually pretty solid now that I've tried it. I've tried other BR games and PUBG was the only I played more than two matches of and I barely even played that game besides randomly joining friends while bored. This is the first one I didn't play for like an hour one night to see how it went and end up uninstalling it.

    What SJWs dont understand is that majority of players, both male and female, prefer playing with good looking characters.

    Thats why League of Legends or Fortnite devs, while saying some PC things about female character design, have continued releasing sexy characters and skins.
