I don't know any other way to put it… It seems you either have a team, or your a random… Which 90% of the time, is a bad thing…I've come to know the word Random as the new "noob". I just don't understand…Most other fps I played people get better, theres a higher skill cap… But in apex, the vast majority of my games as a random have been just WTF moments where I am watching teammates and wondering if we are playing the same game? I,ll give a few examples…
- The 1 guy on the team that runs as fast as possible forward looking for literally anyone, even running into a tight 3 man squad guns blazing out in the open field while we are 300+ distance away. (hint: they never get a single kill, most the time not even a hit, die, and disconnect immediately.)
- The Storm Trooper random: Whether he is using a wingman, an r99, or an LMG, this guy misses every single shot, and somehow is usually the last one alive… Who needs just 1 shot to finish the enemy team, but can never land a hit to save his life. (Hint: This just happened, the guy needed 1 shot… The storm trooper strafed repeatedly missing every shot while this guy, no joke, STOOD STILL and shot him in the head with a wingman. He missed the entire clip….on a non moving target.)
- The afker: Ever notice you dropped with someone… And then you watch them run under a building, and then never move again? Try mentioning reporting them on mic, and watch as their internet bad symbol suddenly appears. Idk if this is a bot or what? But i've seen multiple this season, and they only plugpull if you talk about reporting them for afking, try it, its kinda funny.
- The Punch Party Random: The guy that gets jumpmaster and follows the most enemies down. Hint: He also disconnects the very second he dies. (Can we get some drastically better leave/afk punishments??)
SO my question is, why? Like…This game in particular? Why does it attract so many…. Randoms.
