The sentinel rifle has changed the game a lot and it will take a while to the pattern of new drops to settle in. Amazing how the map changes make the game ms play out a lot differently.

I've not played enough to notice the sentinel much. How does it change things?

Very fast bullet travel, minimal bullet drop. Weapon can be amped with a shield battery giving more powerful shots.

I’m having a blast with this tonight. The last few games I played a month ago I was lucky if I got to top 10 with a single kill, tonight I’ve had a win with 8 kills, and several top 5 rankings with 4 or more kills.

Apex is really shaping up to be a solid online shooter and it’s perfect for both a quick round or two and an all nighter. I’m going for the latter tonight!

Conversely my squad is having real trouble with this. I don’t think the map is optimised yet, there’s some lag somewhere and items pop into bins a microsecond late. All the battles are super sweaty now and the whole balance has changed. Need to adjust.

Yeah all my lobbies are filled with Predators and diamonds so gone are the days where I could regularly get > 5 kills and multiple wins on the trot. Loving the map changes though and the new lighting it looks much better. I understand why they implemented sbmm into pubs but then what's the point of ranked if pubs is the same if not worse for someone who just about managed to get into diamond.

The SBMM is super strange. I'm pretty average, and regularly get put up against champion teams of Apex Predators kitted out with 4k and 20 kill badges. And when I say teams that's exactly what I mean - teams of the bastards, while I'm queuing solo. Sometimes I'll get a player with similar stats pop up on my team, but it's very rare. 

 

It's a fantastic game, but I'd like to be able to relax while playing it just once in a while.

Exactly this, tbh I thought all the whinging was bullshit and it was just the best players left playing so a few weeks ago I tried making a smurf to see what the lobby would be like, I had 4 games with this new account, 2 I had 10 kills and another I had 11, it was like shooting fish in a barrel. I haven't played on that account since as the experience felt hollow but there has to be a  happy medium between the two surely.

I'm not sure 'Battle Royale' and 'relax' really go in the same sentence, dude.

 

They did until the launch of season 3. It was bursts of intensity rather than having your head on a swivel the whole match, and opponents would occasionally miss or do silly things.  Now it's practically white knuckle all the way.

Season 5 starts next week, new character and a new PvE mode? Yes, please.

Looking forward to the start of season 5 but I'm gonna miss Skull Town. It was my go to drop when I just wanted some quick loot and a firefight.

 

Should I be feeling guilty that this has been one of my favourite games this generation but only ever bought season 1 battle pass due to earning enough coins to keep getting the next one for free? Maybe I'll throw Respawn a few quid. I don't want EA to do what they do best and shut a studio.

The update looks great. 
 

With the new PvE content, there’s a whole lot of game there for free.

Yep, I'll be chucking Respawn a few quid for Season 5, probably for both the Battle Pass and Loba character. The core game in this is still top notch; the weapons, the characters and the general feel and movement are superb.

 

I've dabbled a bit in COD Warzone but I think this is sooooo much better.

Loving the redesign kings canyon less open spaces and more buildings and cover areas.  
 

Loba also is fast becoming my  default legend - her passive being able to see purple or gold items through walls and containers helps when team mates are needing stuff , and the teleport bracket is really good pulled of a couple of squad wipes by. Well timed throw behind them then lstar now Down :-) 

 

was able to get into the vault in the cliff beside the remains of skull town it’s grand but not much loot for a three man sQuad  apart from a charge tower

Really enjoying Season 5 again, after having real difficulty in combat in season 4. The map is a great remix with enough changes to make it feel fresh.
Loba is a great addition to the roster after a few weak ones although with Mirages new buffs and abilities it’s making a few legends really stand among the others.

I got my first win today!

I’ve finished 2nd so many times this last week it was getting frustrating. 
in this game my teammates did most of the work but a win is a win. 
this game works so well with randoms. Communication without voice-chat is excellent. 
 

if anyone plays on PS4 could you add me as I’d love to play this game with friends.

cheers

I’ve bought the battlepass this season... is it quite doable to get all 1000 coins back in the season or is it a massive time sink?

I'm undecided on season 5.  I can understand the changes, for example why they chose to remove skulltown but I personally liked the skulltown area so I'm not a fan of the change.  However there's been quite a few bugs, complaints of reg issues.  I've been getting quite a bit of lag that I hadn't had recently.  

 

Plus for my sanity please don't hot drop on ranked and then insta quit.  That just drives me mental.

I did two seasons and felt quite burnt out by it. I've got the coins for another season waiting to go,  but haven't felt at all inclined to play. My advice would be to write off the cost if you start to feel like it's a grind.

You don't have to max out the battlepass but from previous seasons you'd have to get around the 80's to essentially get the next one for free. Though I haven't done the math on the latest one.

 

It can get grindy, but if you're still enjoying the game like me and playing it quite regularly then it can be done.

Great video. That sonar scan is has about 10x the range compared to when I last played it!

Yeah they've made Bloodhound a really useful character this season.

 

I'm a big fan of Loba at the minute. Her teleport is great at getting at difficult to reach spots.

So this happened the other day. It makes me look awesome and well maybe I am but the games matchmaking obviously screwed up because it put me in a bot lobby. Perhaps if I had realised sooner I would have got that elusive 20 bomb. Makes me think all those 20 bombs are fake too.

Apex doesn't have bots?

 

That's the colloquial term for low level lobbys, my teammates and I assume my opponents were in the 30's range, whereas I am 200 and something. Somehow it screwed up and threw me in with all these opponents, none of them caused me any issues I was wiping squads with ease and had I found another 2 players I would have easily hit the 20. My usual lobbys are full of predator and diamond ranks.
