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?

Ok, so I pretty much played this game all weekend long. It's very addicting and fun. The only problems I have with it are: PEOPLE. Just like every multiplayer game.

The people who go off in 2 seperate directions so you try to pick one to follow only it is obvious they do not want to play as a squad.

The people who die/quit immediately after jumping so you essentially play solo. (Although I have hit 3rd and 2nd place a few times as a solo.)

The people who grab EVERYTHING and then curse you out because you die, even though they left you nothing to fight with.

The people who knowingly walk into a fire fight with 5 other squads and curse you out because you couldn't rez them even though you were a bit busy fighting for your life.


When you get a decent squad, or even a not terrible squad this game is brilliant. Much harder to enjoy with horrible players or assholes.

Most of what you mentioned is a result of bad squad mates, and I commiserate with you. But I'm getting the feeling that you might hug too close to your squad mates during looting. Make sure you're slightly splitting off on the initial drop once you reach the general area. Hit up different but nearby buildings than your squad mates. If after all of that you're still lacking some things use the spot tool in your inventory to identify them or if not possible then ask for specific stuff like, "I still need an assault rifle" but otherwise just middle click the scope slot if all you need is that etc.

Following too closely doesn't help the team. You're getting scraps for loot, you're only seeing the same angles as the guy you're following... It's definitely a delicate balance, spreading out just enough to not be stepping on toes but also not too far that the team is in trouble when action hits.
