    Finally won a game on a defense guy, won as Caustic with 5 kills, 900+ dmg and some key revives using his ult as cover. Annoyingly the other two randoms were grabbing all the good loot before I could, and I was doing most of the heavy lifting. Eh, no matter. Now I need to worry about the damage achievement and I should be set.

    The optimal route imo is staying alive for long enough to get the last hit in. If I have to engage or if the other team enagages at that point if course I'm going to gun for it, but I learn almost nothing after a certain amount of hot drops. The punching game only goes so deep and there's very little nuance to learn from it after "get the gun first", "be serpentine because your disadvantage may not be as great as it seems", and/or "mob as a group".

    But really there's an obvious middle ground of experiences to strive for, because the way people behave during an initial clusterfuck will be different from the podium finish and facing a basic-bitch body shield team down with a P2020 is not the same as a squad armed with weapons from balls to brains

    well, the core problem is that you want to go out and shoot guns, but there are gun shooters who can use shotguns to shoot shot at you to stop you getting a shotgun or other gun that you might use to shoot them, so you need to shoot your shot and stick to your guns, gun the engine and move like a shot to the nearest shotgun to be sure youre the one to shoot your shot with your shotgun to avoid getting shot by a gun

    Apparently I got a bit lucky with randos cause I just won again. This time I managed to actually kill a guy while my teammates were downed! They then went on to kill everyone else alive. So in a way, I killed all those people.

    I wish they could even out hit detection for bullet travel.

    Sometimes it feels just right and I lead a target the perfect distance. In another game it feels all over the place and the lead distance is way greater depending on my ping or something. Like it smooths the enemy movement but not the predicted location for my bullet impact.

    Game still really fun when it behaves.

    Got my first win as Octane tonight, he's a really fun character. I feel like accidentally using his ability mid fight can be a detriment, since your left hand is up and blocking part of the screen. Also, the health you lose of course.

    Here's the most effective I've used the pad so far offensively, using it hop over enemies to shoot them in the back as they engage my team:



    This win was tense, enemies on either side of the wall we were on. We managed to get to high ground thanks to the jumppad and let the enemiea below us slug it out:

    My most satisfying times with this game are when my team positions themselves well and sets up a nice kill field. Caustic barrels the doors, we have a height advantage over a valley, and we have a variety of weapons to counter the enemy.

    usually its just we rush for guns and someone turns around and blasts me 40 seconds into the match

    I ain't close to being esports but sometimes you just get that one game where you and your boys pop off.

    Of course, it helps if the other squads have murdered the hell out of each other in the time it took you just to clear your own drop zones.

    The former situation ends up with every one of your team looking away at the kill field at the same time by chance, three enemy teams showing up at once to MLG headshot from 500 meters away

    latter situation you end up winning with punching as you run out of ammo mid-fight

    Finally came in at the tail end of one of those morass bunker fights when it's the center of the shrinking zone. Killed one person to elim one squad, then wiped a no health Gib, no health someone else who just got rezzed, and the healthy Lifeline to take the other squad out. Only 2 squads left after that mess...

    ...and my squad had 15(!) death boxes to pick through at our leisure, with basically the collection of the very best gear on the map.

    Okay had a rather excellent game where I solo'd to a epic third place finish as Octane. My team of randos drops us at airship, which is above Water Treatment. I chase an injured Mirage with a purple shield off the ship and pursue to kill him and get my hands on the shield. Behind me on the ship, both randos die.. and quit. So I grab the shield and decide to take the long way around the circle edge towards the north of the map, looting as I go.

    I rotate all the way from Treatment to Slum Lakes. I see a few teams around but narrowly stealth around them. As the circle chokes up, things are either gonna end on Slums or Runoff. I sprint through Pit and enter Runoff, where one team has the roofs and the other is moving towards them. I stealth past roof team and toss my jump-pad down to get on the adjacent rooftop.



    I have to say I'm proud of myself for slugging it out this far solo. I manhandled one team and almost put the other in the dirt.

    The season pass has at least slightly varied my gameplay. I'm dropping in each character in turn to get the daily kill bonus on each of them. It is sort of fun forcing me to keep switching it up.

    Won a game. I had 2 kills to their 4 and 6. It worked because they behaved in rational ways. They were more aggressive than I'd like, but their aggression was at least reasonable. They pushed teams when we were properly geared and prepared to engage them. They used cover. They used the ping system. It was nice.

    I say "GG, thanks for the carry"

    One of them says "You were fine, GG"

    I was fine?!?!

    I WAS FINE GUYS!

    There are still far too many times in the game when I'm thinking "I have no clue what the right move here is". And my random guess usually gets me killed because of invalid assumptions like "there are no enemies behind me".

    I'm fine at making positioning choices based on the known location of known enemies.

    I'm far less good at saying something like "I see enemy A over here, and B over here, but where is C? I bet he's flanking us, better watch my backside" Or "There's two squads left, I only know where one is, I'm not safe".

    It's like in a firefight I'm an infant that doesn't have object permanence. If I can't see the enemies, they don't exist.

    I hope being aware of it will mean I'll eventually figure it out.

    Yeah this is a major difference between BR abd tyoical shooters.

    I’m weak at it too.

    What I find helps cover that weakness is to always assume the worst. In Fortnite it’s easier to accommodate cause you can just build cover to make sure you aren’t exposed but in Apex you have to use existing cover

    Still, the goal is to leave yourself exposed as little as possible. Position yourself so there’s very few angles that have sights on you. Don’t guess where the enemy is going to come from, assume they are coming every angle and limit how damaging that would be.

    Man had a really good game with randoms that fell apart at the very end. Awkward fight outside bunker, one team above us and the other behind coming up the river. We killed the first squad but got split up for the second and they nailed us to the wall one at a time. It sucks when multiple fights pop off and you just don't have the teamwork to fend off each new attacker.

    Yeah, the one and only time I managed to solo an enemy squad, I saved my self on several occasions by just suddenly having the thought of "the worst possible thing would be if the enemy was doing that" and then I adjust my aim and my position under the assumption that they're doing that and fuck they were.

    I never have succeeded at soloing a squad. I just suck at aiming.
    I have been kill leader once and than I got killed quickly in a very dumb way.
    I feel I fill the kamikaze role in the squads. I run in, draw fire and kill as many as I can as fast as possible before I get knocked down.

    so I calculated how many hours I need to play to get lvl 100 in the battle pass. With the legend bonus and first kill of the day and including that kill. I need to play 134,3 hours. Each kill takes of 10 seconds and each win 2,5 minutes.

    Had the most brutal second place finish. Run up on the other final team rez-shipping two of their players. We drop two of them but it takes a minute as the shield has collapsed and everything is chaos. Their last player just runs away, as far as they can, and our squad dies to the shield collapse. Woof.

    The worst part about it was we won the game before it and the game after it, but losing the middle game meant no streak badges for anyone!

    I'm loving the system to reward playing multiple characters. It's really getting me to switch things up.

    Hey guys, this game is making me very frustrated. In about a third of the games I get into, I'm lagged to hell and back. I tried the "set your data server" thing, and it didn't seem to help. The worst part is, most of the time when I lag badly, the game just won't let me leave; it just hangs at the "connecting to server..." overlay. Which I can exit out of and keep playing lagged, but if it sticks around then I have to go to the Task Manager to shut the game down and restart manually.

    Needless to say, it's killing a lot of the fun. Has anyone else had these issues? Is there anything else I can try? As far as I know, it's not a problem with my ISP. I don't see how it could be, either, since in 2/3 or 3/4 games I run just fine.

    Al my troubles came from frame rate issues and CPU/GPU utilisation.
    You might try to cap your frame rate at 60 or 90 through the the command line and see if it helps.
