Title: APEX LEGENDS ( New Battle Royal Free To Play )
Post by: MrBrutalFrosty on 12:55 AM - 02/04/19
New BR is set to come out this week its made by EA but if we can overlook that part we can see how it might be worth a download first off its free to play with that in mind it means theres no loss for atleast trying it out it has been reported that it is titanfall just with no titans and its pilot vs pilot only with a max of 60 people per server i dont mind that very interesting keep a eye on it theres a live stream of it in 9 hours from now

It's already out. It has a training mode, so Mist could train the ST. For now, I recommend Titanfall 2. It's pretty close but not perfect.

That's pretty cool, just dropping a new big name game out of nowhere. While I hated both Titanfalls (the second even more than the first) this seems like it doesn't have most of the stuff that made those games so terrible and the revive mechanic is interesting. Though I'm not a fan of BR I'll give this a try.

Looks like there is no Aim Assist

TitanFall 2 is one of the best single player and multiplayer games Iíve ever played.  The multiplayer was simply outstanding.  One hell of a dev studio.

Yeah, it does seem like there's no aim assist. An official ST would be a big help. The game is much better than Titanfall 1 and 2 but it's still only a middling BR. It does have a lot of cool additions, especially the stuff that makes team play so much easier, but the core is kind of "meh". I'd rather the stuff that makes it stand out was in PubG or Blackout.

Yeah just tried this game yesterday, looks really cool :)
Nice features and everything.
Looks like we're gonna play Apex Legends with the XIM... APEX ;)
Waiting patiently for an ST with recommended settings.

Colb, have you had much of a chance to play this game with Apex? I know in TF2 that playing at 8 sensitivity completely removes aim assist, and 1-7 has the exact same amount, but is it the same in this? Because it honestly seems as if there is no aim assist whatsoever regardless of what sensitivity you use, or itís just such a small amount itís unnoticeable.

Tried slow and fast sens with the TF2 config, couldnít control recoil at all and could only really aim with single shot weapons. Gave up pretty quick.

Hopefully crossplay includes PC because the controls are much better. BR will always have plenty of keybinds. Movement with simultaneous inventory management isnít possible on console. Idk if the inventory screen locks movement with this game but thatís the case with blackout.

If I am understanding you correctly, should play on 7 sensitivity if I want aim assist. (going below 7 will give the same aim assist? )

In Titanfall 2, the game that Apex Legends is based off of, and seems to share a look mechanic with, using max (8) sensitivity disables aim assist. If you want aim assist you have to use anywhere from 1-7.

However, in Apex Legends, there doesnít seem to be any aim assist regardless of what setting you pick. Either that or itís so weak that itís barely there. I tried 7, and I tried 8, and I couldnít get any noticeable aim assist at all. I did a search on both of the Apex Legends subreddits and found a couple of threads with controller users reporting the same thing (but obviously no one is using anything like 7 or 8 sensitivity), which is leading me to believe that there straight up just isnít any aim assist at all.

I could easily be wrong though, in fact Iíd love for someone to tell me Iím being an idiot and doing something wrong, because the aim doesnít feel snappy enough in this game to make up for a lack of aim assist.

Post by: unknownuser on 05:27 PM - 02/05/19
I tried using 7 and I can definitely feel the difference. I am hitting way more shots, and it feels easier to track. I also use sync COMMON for this game which I think also helps with the aim assist.

Post by: colb on 05:28 PM - 02/05/19
There is no aim assist, that I'm aware of. If there is, it's likely just dampening. Most people are complaining to Respawn that they cannot hit shots on even the lowest sensitivity.

And it seems the usual Titanfall haters are back, and just want the game to be something else. If you wanna play PUBG, go play PUBG. Titanfall 2 was great, you were probably just terrible. Apex Legends is a great game. It just needs some tweaks and a balance pass. It's incredibly team oriented, as opposed to PUBG and Blackout where 1 guy could lone wolf and win games (not that those games are bad, I have over 1k hours in each and love them). This is just a different style of BR.

TF 1/2 were built around bad ideas, mainly bots and titans. People donít want that in a cod style fps.

AL is completely different. It has a few things that need work but itís a BR. The shotgun is a little OP, wipes squads with ease. The respawning does add a big team work element to this game. But at the same time you donít even have to speak, thatís kinda weird.

Titans weren't bad ideas. That's why people played the game. Bots existed in 2 modes, one mode was DOA, and the other was Attrition, which oddly enough everyone played the most. Although most hardcore TF players flocked to CTF. The game still averages 10k players on X1 / PS4. So it's not like it's a dead game. If people want a COD style FPS, they should go play COD. TF2 is the best FPS since CS, IMO. Generally, the people who complain about it never took the time to learn how to play. I've seen the videos... "These maps are too big. Titans are too OP. Bots suck! I can't find anyone!" Yeah yeah... learn parkour and get good. 30-40 kill games were the norm for me in CTF.

Iím surprised it has 10k players.

Apex Legends seems pretty good so far. Iím sure it will just get better. It definitely had a surprising release, running great on day one? Thatís unheard of.

Yeah, they snuck up on us, too. No hype prior to the day of release. Nobody knew anything about it, then suddenly they are like "Oh hey, we have a new BR". Now over 2 million unique players, and there's hardly been even a hiccup. Very surprising.

They weren't just built around bad ideas, those bad ideas were also terribly executed and balanced. I was surprised that they still had a good game in them after the trash heap that was TF1 and the dumpster fire that was TF2.

I mean, Apex Legends is not my cup of tea but it is a very good game from launch day. People trying to fish for reasons why everyone hates TF making up BS excuses like "you were just bad at it" are in denial. If I don't have my buddies in my squad I'm terrible at Apex but I can admit it's good. I was pretty good at TF2 but it's just a god awful game from top to bottom.

I'm pretty sure there is aim assist.
People are complaining? Personal opinion: most games nowadays have retarded aim assist that feels like an aimbot with the snap on feature, so people are just used to that. You give them a game with a light aim assist? Obviously they are gonna be in trouble. Me personally? I'm doing great, Controller or XIM.
Of course the official ST is not out so obviously the game is not perfect with the XIM atm, but I honestly hope that aim assist will stay the way it is right now. Finally a game where people need to be actually be skilled to land their shots.

No, no, and no.

A game designer didn't cater to your COD desires and you trash them for it. TF2 was an excellent game that was released a week after BF1, and 2 weeks before COD. The fact that it still has a decent number of people playing, despite EA attempting to murder it, can attest to that. The major draw to the game was Titans... it's called Titanfall. If you want COD go play COD. The fact that you're talking about balance just reinforces that you didn't take time to actually get any good at the game. Try playing thousands of hours of CTF against legitimate players, and then maybe I'll hear your complaints. I'm sure you merked on some console kids who stood around with boots on the ground in Attrition, while complaining about bots.

Hey guys, I'm really struggling to find the best settings on apex legends I have used the titan fall 2 file, and set everything to how it suggests, and feels much better, I'm glad it came with that advice, but It still feels unsmoothe and hard to aim I was just wondering if anyone could send me a link or help me out with my settings? Any help would be much appreciated
Thanks
Jamie :)

try ingame sens 6
worked great for me, it seems that lower ingame sens activates a bit of aim assist

Yes, yes, yes.

Again, fantasized excuse to dismiss valid criticism because you just can't handle it being pointed out that you like doo doo. I like a lot of different types of shooters. Killzone Shadowfall, Halo 5 and Battlefield 4 are some of my favorite FPSs of this gen. R6 Siege and Apex Legends might not be my flavor but I still think they are good games. Both Titanfalls just aren't. They are both a confused mess of contradicting game design that tries to cater to everybody but does nothing well and TF2 is even worse in that regard.

Titanfall 2 didn't just do poorly because it launched right in the middle of two far better games. It sold poorly because the beta dissuaded people from buying it. Also, TF doesn't have decent numbers. I tried playing TF2 a couple of months ago and there were a little more than 200 players online during peak hours.

 I agree TF two was absolutely outstanding multiplayer. Once you got Your head wrapped around all of the skills and pace of the game itís very hard to beat a better multiplayer experience than TF two.

Post by: Phil Ashio on 04:14 PM - 02/09/19
This game is the most I've played a BR and the most I've wanted to play a BR. Everything about it is contradicting to my taste - the team focus, the high TTK, it's a BR - yet it all works and I still can't help but want to come back because it's so much fun. If I could change anything it's that I wish there were maybe five more squads per lobby as the mid game can feel a little barren. Also, everyone should be able to choose their legend at the same time.
