Apex Legends Hits 1M Players Right Off

Vince Zampella tweets about the success of yesterday's launch of Apex Legends. Word is the free-to-play battle royale hit the one million player threshold within the first eight hours of its launch: "I’m so overwhelmed right now, @PlayApex broke a million unique players in under 8 hours. ❤️❤️❤️ Thank you so much for showing up and being part of this with @Respawn you are amazing!!" There's also a post on reddit where Respawn recaps the launch. Word is to expect a small server patch this morning to address stability issues. They are also soliciting feedback:

The support and excitement for Apex Legends has been more than we could have imagined. The whole team is thrilled to see people loving the game as much as we do. We love the praise, but we also want to hear what could be better. A few things for example we’d love your feedback on:

  • How do weapons feel? Distinct? Samey?
  • Do Legend abilities feel effective?
  • Are you finding loot quickly enough? Is ammo too hard to find? Is a type of ammo feel to scarce?
  • What areas of the game could be explained better?
  • What do you wish Apex had that it doesn’t
  • What are your favorite cosmetics?

I am really enjoying the game so far. Have about 15 matches in, playing solo (going to play with friends tonight) and getting matched with pubs so far hasn't been the worst thing in the world... yet.

My very first game I got into a match with two guys who were obviously on teamspeak or discord or couldn't be bothered to use the ingame voice/chat. I dropped us on the flying ship/thingy and the very first thing they did is loot all the weapons without dropping me even a single rifle or ammo for my peashooter that I picked up. The two then proceded to jump away without me, I followed them for a bit but they just went to random places and hid in houses. All the while not saying a damn thing or even typing something in chat.

Needless to say the very first team we ran into destroyed us while I was asking them over VoiP to at least spare me some light ammo. So I could...you know...shoot back.

Feeling that frustration on the very first match you play is terribly dissapointing...

Maybe it's a region thing. Im on the EU, so probably quite a few players can't understand english or bother with VoiP...

...is there a way to switch to NA servers? Does anyone know? I have a feeling I might actually do a bit better there...
