Are Apex Legends Silver Lobbies Way Too Powerful?
As with most online games, matchmaking can make a huge difference in your Apex Legends experience, no matter if you’re a veteran or a newbie.
If you are paired with other players with similar skills, chances are that you will be in for some competitive matches that could lead to you winning. As long as you make the right choices.
Reddit users pointed out that Apex players often find themselves in matches with people of a higher caliber than they, which can lead to frustration.
User magnetico6 posted a video about their recent experience at a silver lobby. He commented: “The state of ranked right now.” This is a Silver lobby! SILVER”.
Later, they explained that it was “sucking” because 6 new boxes were placed on their heads. They were not able to take them out because they were being hammered from the roof of the building across the street.
Many users shared this opinion with IanBeel, who replied that the clip could be used as a promotional esports lobby clip, and HyperionX-X stated: “You can tell it’s sweaty when your hands start to pool.”
BlueLobster47 shared similar experiences. He said that “Gold 4” was filled with everyone, from rookies to masters. It’s a gamble as to what kind of lobbies it will get,” Chemmy said, “I love dying with silver to men with three different animated masters badges each game.”
Howsyourbellcurve, however, suggested changes that Respawn should make to fix the situation. She explained: “The biggest issue with new ranks is gold must be separated from Silver and Bronze. There can be a huge skill gap between bronze and gold.
Dear Jim, on the other hand, said that he loved the new rank personally but wished for two changes. These were: “Bronze shouldn’t be able to use Gold because it creates too much skill gap. It should be kept to +/-1 rank per rank and less reset between splits. You don’t have to stop playing for the next season.
Some wondered if magnetico6’s clip was good enough to demonstrate that there is indeed matchmaking problems. User jasheekz stated: “4-minute clip with nothing, imagine.”
