    Is there a way to actually mute everyone or do you have to do it each match?

    @AaronTurner Seems to be each match, I've been looking for that too. Don't usually get people on mic, but every few games there's a bloody mouth-breather creeping me out.

    I'm at work, thinking about Apex. I am actually tempted to buy something, I feel like they deserve it.

    Liked this after 2 games. Sound cutting out when shooting a gun though on ps4 pro. Known fault apparently

    Probably played ten games, bored. Will keep it on the PS4 incase friends start playing. With randoms it's too random.
    Easily the best br I've played though.

    Played it on the PS4 last night with randoms, and even managed a win! (unexpected, as I am old with an atrophied twitch reflex, and the only BR-type game I've played before was 2 rounds of Fortnite).

    The context sensitive ping thing is brilliant for comms, and managed to keep the various squads together. The gun play was good (bit tough controlling for recoil).

    It'll be interesting to see how much squads of randoms end up sticking together as everyone gets familiar with the map.

    I'm working from home so it's like 6 feet away, it's killing me.

    I spent some money on it, quite happy to support Respawn. I bought TF2 twice and probably spent £30 or more on mtx on top of that, and I don't usually buy premium currencies or whatever for most games, only a very few exceptions.

    My only complaint about this so far is that having to switch to grenades manually is cumbersome. Wish I could just quickly throw them.

    Yeah, I keep getting fooled by that.

    Yes it still needs streamlining, also think it should auto prioritise up to health or shield depending on what's needed. Switching in a pinch can be a problem

    @HairyArse I have a feeling that it's to reduce spam that can arise from single button, it's ridiculous in Blackout because you can hit a button to throw one nade and once you've used all of that type you immediately move on to the next type. You can just pelt people with concs, frags, clusters, proximities.

    That and the fact that the game uses RB for ping which is essential. I get it's a conscious design choice, but years of spamming concussion grenades means my muscle memory is taking some retraining.

    I'm new to BR games. The only other one I've tried is a bit of fortnite but coming to it late was probably a mistake. I just found it too hectic and the building element never clicked.

    Apex feels much more my cuppa, and after roughly ten matches I've enjoyed it. The controls can feel slightly complex in the heat of the moment for an old fart like me but not overly so. The 3-person squads make for a better team game than 2-person because if one person is downed then there's always one to keep fighting and one to revive.

    is there any sort of progression system in this like fortnite's battle pass unlocks? something to keep you playing and aiming for?

    You earn currency you can use for cosmetics but that's it for the moment.
  • Deleted user 6 February 2019 19:21:56
    And to unlock new characters, I think the battlepass stuff arrives in March.

    Battlepass (or their equivalent) launches in March I believe.

    I like how this has had over 2 million players with almost no crashes yet anthem prolapsed during the VIP demo.

    3 million players in 24 hours, last I heard.
    Itís F2P, slick and decent. Itíll be the next biggest thing behind Fortnite in short order.

    I had a quick 15 mins earlier, I like it. Think I will be playing some more fairly soon.

    😃

    Shame it's going to snaffle a slot in Phattso's new thread, as i wasn't expecting to play a new game beyond crackdown 3 this month, but I'll survive!

    Just had an awesome match, we only had a two man squad, and my guy quit as soon as he went down, he didn't see me avenge him with a legendary shotgun. Snaffled a gold knockdown shield from one of the guys which had a self revive on it.

    Sadly I got killed using it, but was cool anyway. Came 3rd playing solo :)
