5 things Apex Legends can improve today to be more fun
Updated on August 10, 2020 By Christian Thomas
Apex legend was for a moment the top battle royale game right after its release. But why is it losing its popularity after having millions of gamers addicted to it? And why is it getting boring? In this post, we answer those questions with the 5 things Apex Legends can improve today to be more fun. Additionally, some legends upgrade that we all need.
Since this Battle Royale genre became popular with PUBG, it has never changed the same mechanical. They have some variations but with the same pattern: jump, drop, loot, fight, more loot, and repeat. At the end of the day, you spend more time running and looting, and less time on the battle.
And don’t forget the fact that you can drop and don’t find a single gun—just a bunch of accessories.
Apex Legends introduced really cool things to the battle royale genre though:
- The respawn beacon.
- The ping system which improved the in-game communication.
- The supply ship
- Ability based characters
- Player banners
- Champion squad
- And a huge dinosaur in the second season!
However, there’s always room for improvement. Let’s jump to the opportunities:
1. Remove the dropship
Instead of jumping from a ship, allow the players to pick up a starting point, and upgrade the map so we can see where other teams are going to drop beforehand. The game Ring of Elysium(another battle royale) has implemented this and it works like a charm. You can also let the players start from a cave like in the training mode; how cool it would be.
This will not only remove the drop and die—which is very common when everybody jumps to the same spot—But also will make the game more competitive by reducing the luck factor.
We also thought about the possibility of having 4 dropships coming from multiple directions on the map, forcing all players to jump separately.
2. Let the players start with a p2020 by default
Starting the game with a P2020 by default is one of the best things they can do. It supports the fact that you can drop and don’t find a single weapon. A p2020 at least will give us the chance to defend yourself.
3. Shrink the circle faster
Shrinking the circle faster will bring more action and less running time to the game; consequently…be less boring.
4. A game mode with auto respawn
What about a game mode that allows us auto-respawn up to 3 times in a single game. Think about getting back to the game and kill the opportunist team that killed you while you were fighting another team.
5. Add moving robots to the training mode
As previously mentioned, you spend a lot of time looting and running which won’t give you enough time to master the game mechanics. By adding moving robots you’ll be able to master the in-game aiming a lot.
- Allow only the same team to use the portals
- The tactical illusion should be more realistic, for example, let it do fake shots
- Fix the ultimate so the decoys run randomly
We love this game and want it to last for a long time. With a few changes, it’ll become fun again.
We appreciate that Respawn is very reciprocated to the community’s suggestions, so we hope they can read this and implement at least one or two points. These tweaks are necessary for the game to become a slid E-Sport that entertains.
The introduction of new legends is great but not more important than new game modes. Talking about that, the temporary solo mode was insane so please bring it back!
