Apex Legends cross-play has been playable for a whole day, and it’s utterly riddled with insects. The servers – patchy at the most productive of occasions – can hardly ever maintain the explosive quantities of avid gamers, in particular on Xbox and PlayStation. Earlier I noticed a queue with 1200 avid gamers in it…
There are server disconnects, issues of the leaving the sport in any respect, and extra purple symbols within the nook than I’ve observed for the reason that recreation’s release. However, regardless of the issues, that is nonetheless a beta – Respawn does want in an effort to take a look at their releases sooner or later.
As an replace, the problems previous inflicting avid gamers to have hassle matchmaking have now been resolved. Thanks for hangin' in there with us. 😅🔧

So a ways, Respawn has been lovely responsive to probably the most extra urgent server problems. Matchmaking issues have been hot-fixed this morning even supposing server efficiency nonetheless isn’t superb. Random disconnects are nonetheless going down, both sending you immediately to the dashboard, crashing Origin, or dumping you again into the foyer.
As smartly as server problems, there are in truth slightly a couple of in-game insects as smartly. There is a completely loopy one the place the Sentinel will also be become a completely computerized sniper rifle, hitting 140 harm according to headshot. There used to be a in a similar way busted trojan horse with the Charge Rifle. All you must know is: don’t do that…please.
I additionally wrote a piece of writing the day before today in regards to the adjustments to Pathfinder…whilst the idea that in the back of lowering his grapple cooldown in response to time spent within the air, the execution has been…lovely terrible. It’s one of the crucial buggiest adjustments to a legend that Respawn has ever driven out.
Not simplest is the timer lovely damaged – while you slide the timer is reset, or on occasion gained’t paintings in any respect – there also are visible system defects with Pathfinders giant steel fingers overlaying all of the display screen. This seems to be even worse with the ones giant cumbersome boxing gloves at the display screen.
And is the Pathfinder trade in truth even a buff? If you max grapple, you’re in truth at an obstacle in comparison to prior to this patch. The timer is even longer than standard, as it sort of feels just like the devs aren’t superb at grappling…let’s hope that is only a transient mistake.
Overall, the most recent Aftermarket Patch for Apex Legends has had somewhat of a coarse release. It used to be all the time going to be a large month for Respawn – introducing crossplay to masses of 1000’s of avid gamers throughout more than one platforms clearly has its demanding situations.
Respawn has to this point been lovely responsive with comments, so expectantly there must be extra patches/fixes over the following week.
