Its used quite a bit to deal quick damage as its animation is so much quicker than swapping weapons or reloading. It's combo'd with soldier's rockets up close or a quick melee after your first shot after hooking an enemy as roadhog or after you run out of your clip as tracer.

its not cut and dry, depends on time of day, server, who is queueing. they can't guarantee population, that's just a generalization of the lobbies.

they just irrationally hate him, online mobs cannot be reasoned with, its crazy.

he could start a charity and people would still try and harass him because they don't like that he's more popular/famous/better at the game. it's jealousy and resentment + being able to communicate with like minded people which embolden them. basically the same shit you see/saw from trump supporters.

Has it been worth it making the switch?

Probably, I doubt we'll see it though. It just seems like a non starter to have the game played differently depending on the game mode and/or rank. Muscle memory is so important it'd be so disruptive.

If anything they should make all PC queues have one aim assist value, but again that's restrictive so I doubt we'll see it.

? am i supposed to watch a 20 minute video so see something? I watched for a minute and he says something along the lines of "i played overwatch from 2016 until I went pro in apex"

you can diminish people's achievements all you want and try to argue semantics, doesn't give any weight to your argument.

only fix I can think of is potentially making your death protection health scale with distance from the totem. if you're close you have X health, as you get further away your available health decreases.

i'm getting the sense that they will see how it plays out in arenas and then potentially add it to ranked season 11. respawn usually gets it right but at an incredibly slow pace.

not entirely sure, but i believe its a legal issue between EA and the countries.

they've been given a reprieve with the console shortages. lucky for them, but would be nice to hear their intentions with it.

I'm scared they can't even do it with some of the other technical problems they've had

the issue i had with the original post is that it leads to people in the comments hating on ea, respawn, the devs, etc when its entirely unjustified in this circumstance. people find a criticism that is valid (someone wrongfully banned), and use that to be negative and spew insults and anyone they perceive to be in charge.

i'm tired of seeing devs/people upset and affected because a mob of people online are berating and insulting them. having thousands of people criticizing you must be a terrible, overwhelming feeling... and honestly i feel bad that the OP of the original post is likely going through that. However he can hide behind anonymity, these employees cannot.

always great to see them expand the eligible countries list. still sad to see slovenia (and Matafe) kept off for whatever reason.

I'm excited to see how some of the APAC teams fare too. I want to see how some people like Genburten do on LAN without playing on 100+ ping

COMMENT 2d ago

who is to say that they don't monitor it already?

the reason i'm so up in arms about this is because its just more of the witch-hunt, hive-mind way people behave online. all of this will lead people to think negatively about ea and respawn, and in turn the devs they interact with on social media - leading them to berate, harass and generally treat these people terribly.

COMMENT 2d ago

I'd like to believe that most are level-headed adults, but I haven't seen much to support that unfortunately.

I'm just tired of the hate and negativity online and try to balance it out. hope you have a good day as well!

very true, but the fact that a post like that got so much support can influence someone's opinions.

on any given topic they may see a highly upvoted post and think "this is what a lot of people believe, maybe I should too?", and then they get off reddit and go about their life thinking that EA and respawn ban people for saying "Gibraltor is gay" when in reality there is no reason to believe that.

i mean off the top of my head there's also BCJ and Dcop who switched from apex to valo. grego too. that's with giving 10 seconds of thought and doing zero research.

your strawman argument of calling zombs an OW pro when his previous professional contract was for apex is laughable

or you can recognize you don't have all of the information on a given situation and stay out of it.

COMMENT 2d ago

for people what care about what influencers and streamers do so much, you really don't seem to have a grasp on what "influence" actually is.

1 post with 23k upvotes and thousands of views isn't countered by some dev comments and a couple small posts bashing them.
