So, my intention was to play a few rounds and see what’s what of Apex Legends. I ended up spending way too many hours playing this game. It really has a great spin on the normal BR mode, and makes for some epic gaming moments.
The ping system is revolutionary. Now even if your random team mates do not have mics to chat, you are more than capable enough to coordinate and share information together. It is just a simple point and click.
The respawn mechanic saved me and my team a few times during the games I played. When you’re downed, a team member can pick up your banner and take it to a respawn location, where you come back into the game. The catch is that you start off with no loot and no weapons. This just adds something to the game that is better than a normal BR game
The game is also much faster, and feels and plays like what a well designed FPS game from a AAA studio should feel like. In my play time last night, I never got any technical issues at all, not even a disconnect
The map is okay. There is a lot of variance in the regions and buildings, and offers a lot of verticality, but I wasn’t too impressed by the entire map.
