Questions

What needs improvement?ANSWER

Can you share a short guide?ANSWER

Well, in case you don’t know what armor swapping is, it is literally what it says. During or after a fight, you swap your armor for the one in a death box of an opponent that recently died since it is now full, this will save your life many many times. You can and will many times swap for a lower quality shield since 50-75 armor is better than zero on you during an intense fight.   0 0

How to get discount or bonus?ANSWER

Could you mention the pros and cons?ANSWER

What is your top advice?ANSWER

Start with an easy loadout! Even though most weapons in Apex Legends are viable, there are exceptions, and they change every patch or two with buffs and nerfs, so you will need to google for a weapon tier list to track that. However, you should stick with a Rifle and Shotgun combination until you get better. For example, R301/Flatline/Havoc with Eva 8/Mastiff/Peacekeeper. Later on, you can play with Wingman, Bocek, Snipers, or something similar, however, one of these 3 rifles + one of the shotguns will do you best.   2 0

Before the match, players form into two- or three-player team, and choosefrom pre-plannedhero with distinctive abilities, known as "Legends". The game has two gameplay modes. In "FightRoyale", up to 20 three-person team or 30 two-person duos land on an island and findfor weapons and supplies before attempting to defeat all other players in combat. The accessibleplay locationon the island shrinks over time, forcing players to holdmoving or else searchthemselves outside the play locationwhich shouldbe fatal.

In "Arenas", players form into three-player team and battleversusanother teamin a 3v3 squaddeathmatch over a series of rounds to determine the championof the match. Squad victorywhen their squadhas at least 3 points and is 2 points ahead.

Apex Legends is set in the same science fiction universe as Respawn Entertainment's Titanfall series, with several hero from the Titanfall series appearing either as minor hero or playable Legends. Work on the game began around late 2016, though the project remained a secret right up until its launch. The game's release in 2019 came as a surprise, as until that point it had been assumed that Respawn Entertainment was working on a third installment to the Titanfall franchise, the studio's previous major game. Apex Legends get generally positive reviews from critics, who praised its gameplay, progression system, and fusion of elements from various genres. Some considered it a worthy competitor to other fightroyale games. Apex Legends surpassed 25 million players by the end of its first week, and 50 million within its first month. By April 2021, it had approximately 100 million players.

Gameplay

A gameplay screenshot showing the game's ping system.

Apex Legends is an online multiplayer fightroyale game featuring team of three players using pre-angry hero with distinctive abilities, called "Legends", similar to those of charactershooters. Alternate modes have been introduced allowing for single and for two-player team since the game's release. The game is free-to-play and monetized through microtransactions and loot boxes, which letthe player to spend both real cashand in-game currency on cosmetic items, such as outfits for the Legends and freshcolors for weapons.

Each match generally features twenty squad of three-player team. Players shouldjoin mate in a teamor shouldbe matched randomly with other players. Before the match, each player on the teamchoose one of the 19 playable hero (as of season 11), with the exception that no heromay be chosenmore than once by a squad. Each heroin the teamhas a unique design, personality, and abilities that provide different playstyles to the team. All squad are then territory on an aircraft that passes over the game map. One player in each teamis the jumpmaster, selecting when the teamcanskydive out of the aircraft and where to land with the concurrence of the other teammembers. However, players are free to deviate from the teams path.

Once on the ground, the teamshouldscavenge for weapons, armor, and other equipment that is scattered around buildings, or in crates randomly distributed around the map, while keeping an eye out for other team. Apex Legends contain a nonverbal communication "ping system" which let players to utilizetheir game controller to communicate to their teamcertain directions, weapon area, enemies, and suggested strategies. While the game offers movement options similar to other shooters, it contain some of the gameplay features of previous Titanfall games, such as the ability to climb over short walls, slide down inclined surfaces, and utilizezip-lines to traverse an locationquickly.

Over time, the game's safe spacewill reduce in size around a randomly-chosenpoint on the map; players outside the safe spacetake damage and may die if they do not reach the safe spacein time. This also confines team to smaller zone to force encounters. The last teamwith any members left alive is crowned the "Apex Winner" of that match. Players are awarded in-game currency based on their teams placement as well as experience points. Players who become knocked down in the course of a game shouldbe revived by their squadmates. Cana player be killed completely, they shouldstill be resurrected if their squadmember(s) collect their respawn banner, which appears at the territorywhere they died, and bring it to one of several beacons on the island. The banner, however, must be collected within a time limit, before expiring and fully eliminating the player.

Season 9 introduced a freshpermanent mode named "Arena". In this mode, players form into three-player team and battleversusanother teamin a 3v3 squaddeathmatch over a series of rounds to determine the championof the match. Squad victorywhen their squadhas at least 3 points and is 2 points ahead. Additionally, if a game candrag on to round 9 (where both squad have 4 points) a final sudden death round launch. Respawn stated this scoring system "prevents total blowout games from dragging on for too long" and also "allow more competitive games holdthe heat going for longer". Rather than skydiving onto the map and gathering equipment like in the fightroyale mode, players spawn in a "shop" where they shouldpurchase equipment and charges of their Legend's abilities using content earned in the previous rounds to prepare for the next fight. This variation of the game borrows mechanics from other shooters such as Counter Strike and Valorant. The mode is the first permanent deviation away from the fightroyale format.

Development

Developer Respawn Entertainment had previously developed Titanfall (2014) and its sequel Titanfall 2 (2016), both of which were published by Electronic Arts (EA) who eventually acquired Respawn Entertainment in 2017.

According to design director Mackey McCandlish, initial design on Apex Legends started before Titanfall 2 had shipped in 2016 and as of 2018 the entire Titanfall squadat Respawn Entertainment was working on the project; however, executive producer Drew McCoy stated that work on the game did not launchuntil the spring of 2017. He also confirmed that the game had approximately 115 developers working on it, making it the studio's most labor-intensive project. Titanfall 2, by methodof comparison, had around 85 developers.

According to McCoy, the studio was not sure what their next game would be after completing the post-release assistancefor Titanfall 2, though they knew they wanted to holdmaking Titanfall games. As with the development of Titanfall 2, the studio broke into several tinysquad to create "action blocks", tinygame prototypes that showcase a gameplay element, a weapon, or similar feature of a game that would fit into a Titanfall sequel. One such "action block" was inspired by the success of the fightroyale game genre led by PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds; this prototype, which applied gameplay mechanics of previous Titanfall games in a fightroyale format, was considered very successful and the studio decided to expand this model. The designers decided that having the pilotable Titans (large mecha) from their previous games would not work well in a battle-royale setting and instead focused on creating strong heroclasses which felt appropriate for the Titanfall franchise. They also found that some maneuverability features of prior Titanfall titles, such as wall-running, would make gameplay too challenging in a fightroyale format, as identifying the direction of threats would be too difficult.

Respawn Entertainment CEO Vince Zampella told VentureBeat that Apex Legends, as a live-service and free-to-play battle-royale game, was a freshchallenge for the studio and represented a freshmethodfor them of developing games. Their design philosophy was focused on "chasing the fun" and designing all the mechanics around team-based play, rather than solo play. The final decision on major design factors, such as the size of the squad, the number of squad and the size of the map, were all based on what felt "most fun" to the developers and were strongly tutorial by "gut feeling".

Design director Mackey McCandlish also stated that with Apex Legends, they were looking to challenge the conventions of the still relatively young battle-royale genre and to add their studio's unique touch to that class of games. They felt that the choice of three-man team and a limit of 20 squad gave players on average a greater possibilityto victoryand also felt more in line with the kindof intimate gameplay they were hoping to achieve. McCandlish claimed that the studio felt the need to create a "defensible space" in the battle-royale mode which could not be easily imitated and that the communication system, the three-man team, and the smaller playing locationwere all aligned with this goal.

As part of the development process, the game underwent extensive play-testing to ensure that all elements felt fun and balanced. Collectively the developers spent 100 to 200 hours a day trying out the game, a process which executive producer Drew McCoy called "probably the most necessarypart of development". To refine the game's non-verbal communication system, the studio play-tested the game for a month without the utilizeof voice chat and applied fake names to the play-testers to predict how most players would experience the game.

With the game mostly completed, Respawn's director of brand marketing, Arturo Castro, began working on how the studio would name and market it. Castro recognized that the game featured many elements which players would expect from a Titanfall franchise game, but lacked core elements such as Titans, Pilots and a single-player experience. Additionally, it had already been reported that Respawn was working on Titanfall 3 from a source at the studio. Respawn therefore decided that attempting to market the game as part of the Titanfall series would have been difficult and would risk alienating Titanfall fans. They, therefore, opted to treat the game as a new intellectual property (IP). Respawn were also concerned that as they at that time had recently been acquired by EA, players would think that EA had forced them to make a fightroyale game. McCoy affirmed that they had to convince Electronic Arts to letthem to make this game: "we decided to make this game. Not to be throwing EA under the bus, but this wasn't the game they were expecting. I had to go to executives, presentit to them, and explain it and...not convince but more, 'Hey, believeus! This is the thing you wishout of us.' [...] This is a game where we had to say, 'This is what we wishto do. Assistus receivethere.'"

Concerned that a standard six-month marketing campaign for the game would have generated negative publicity from disgruntled Titanfall fans, Castro claims they eventually took inspiration from musical artist Beyoncé whose release of her self-titled album came as a surprise to fans—a strategy which proved financially successful. Wanting to generate some buzz about this freshproduct before its release, the studio secretly arranged for about 100 social media influencers to travel to their studio to testthe game and then instructed them to "tease" fresh of it on their social media acc during halftime of the Super Bowl LIII, the day before Apex Legends' formal release. Respawn CEO Vince Zampella felt the approach was "gross", according to Castro, as he found it reminiscent of the infamous Fyre Festival "hype" which later turned out to be a fraudulent event. However, as Apex Legends was already ready for release at this point, Castro felt the approach was an appropriate marketing strategy. Because of the game's performance in rulesof player-count and viewership on streaming services, Castro felt vindicated in this decision. This approach was uncharacteristic of any prior EA title.

The game is built using a modified version of Valve Corporation's Source engine; Source had previously been utilize for Titanfall 2, however for Apex Legends several essentialadjustments to letfor the increased draw distances and the hugegame map were angry. Apex Legends is trust to be pushing at the technological limits of its game engine and as a result, the game compromises on dynamic display resolution, with the quality of the photoand frame rate suffering particularly on console versions and on lower-end PC devices.

Prior to launch, McCoy confirmed there were plans to implement cross-platform play to the game in the future, though claimed that game progression and in-game purchases cannot be transferred across systems due to hardware limitations. McCoy has also expressed the desire to eventually bring Apex Legends to iOS, Android, and Nintendo Switch.

According to anonymous reports, the Chinese corporation Tencent is working with Electronic Arts to bring Apex Legends to China, as partnering with a local Chinese firm is a requirement for Western media companies wishing to make their products legally accessiblein the country. In January 2020, EA confirmed to investors that it was working with a local partner in order to bring the game to PC in China, though it did not mention the partner by name.

Respawn established a freshVancouver, British Columbia, studio, within the EA Vancouver campus, dedicated to supporting Apex Legends in May 2020.

As part of the June 2020 EA Play presentation, Respawn announced that Apex Legends would be brought to the Steam storefront for Windows players, as well as to the Nintendo Switch by late 2020. Further, the game would support cross-platform play across all supported platforms on these releases. Cross-platform play was introduced into the game with the Aftermarket Collection Event. In a blog publicationby Respawn in late October 2020, it was revealed that the Steam version will beginon November 4, the same day as the beginof season 7. However, the Nintendo Switch version was delayed to March 9, 2021. The Nintendo Switch version of Apex Legends was developed by Panic Button, known for their Switch ports of the DOOM series and Rocket League.

Electronic Arts also confirmed that mobile launches on iOS and Android were in development in collaboration with a Chinese mobile company. The mobile ports are set to release by the end of 2022. In April 2021, Electronic Arts announced that the mobile version of the game would be titled Apex Legends Mobile, and would launchbeta testing in the coming months. In July 2021, Apex Legends was hacked by individuals wishing to draw attention to persistent issueswith cheating in the Titanfall series that had been unaddressed by Electronic Arts and Respawn. Hugebanners pointed players of Apex Legends to a domainoutlining their concerns.

Esports

Shortly after Apex Legends' launch, it was seen as a potential esport competition, and Respawn had anticipated establishing happening once the game had been established. As early as March 2019, various esport squadsponsors began to assemble Apex Legends squad for these tournament. ESPN launched its EXP softwareto showcase esports happening running alongside other ESPN-managed sporting happening. The first such happeningwas the EXP Pro-Am Apex Legends Exhibition, run on July 11, 2019 alongside the 2019 ESPY Awards.

Controversies

'Iron Crown' happeningand loot box controversy

With the introduction of the 'Iron Crown' limited-time happeningin August 2019, the developers released several purchasable in-game cosmetic items. The vast majority of these stuffcould only be acquired through purchasing loot boxes, and the most sought-after item (a cosmetic ax for one of the player hero) could only be purchased at an additional cost after first having obtained 24 other purchasable items. Players and media outlets decried that as a effectof this transaction model, the cost of the most sought-after item was approximately $170 (or £130)—a pricepoint which Forbes called "hilariously out of touch" and compared negatively to most other major microtransaction models in the industry.

This resulted in a negative backlash from the player community and industry journalists, particularly on Reddit, where members of the Apex Legends community forum traded insults with developers of the game with the increasingly powerfullanguage being utilize by both parties.

As a result, Respawn Entertainment apologized for what they accept was unfair monetization and promised to letplayers the possibilityto purchase cosmetic stuffdirectly (rather than rely on loot boxes), albeit at an increased price. Respawn Entertainment CEO Vince Zampella later apologized for members of the development team "crossing a line with their comments", while also defending that they stood up for themselves versusalleged death threats and insults aimed at their family members.

Save Titanfall campaign

Around July 4, 2021, unknown agents appeared to have broken EA and Respawn's server safetyas to modifyin-game messages to point to a domainthat purportedly was trying to "Save Titanfall". The pageand messages spoke of the weak safetythat both Titanfall and Titanfall 2 servers had, leading to the games becoming unplayable due to the number of other hackers using denial of service attacks to bring down the servers. A community-led investigation determined that the registrant of the domainwere directly involved in hacking the Apex servers were also behind some of the denial attacks on the Titanfall servers as a kindof false flag to receiveRespawn to bring back the cancelled Titanfall Online game.

'Creature Within' happeningcontroversies
