Apex Legends player creates brilliant way to identify friendly abilities

When you’re in a game of Apex Legends, you’ll need to distinguish friendly abilities and grenades from enemy ones. Now, one player has come up with a clever way to tell the difference.

Apex Legends matches can become extremely chaotic due to the wide variety of characters in the game with different abilities and weapons. You, your squad, and your enemies will by using different attacks left and right.

When you’re fighting in a small area, it can become difficult to tell which attacks to avoid. One player has come up with a way to tracking these abilities so that you know which ones are hostile, and which are your teammates’.

Distinguishing between friendly and enemy abilities can be extremely difficult, but Reddit user wave_panda has created a concept that solves this problem.

First, they’ve added a section titled “Ally Tactical Color” under Gameplay settings. You can use this to color code-friendly Tactical attacks in red or blue.

The clip in the Apex Legends subreddit showcased Caustic‘s Nox Gas as an example, with the green gas being illuminated with a blue hue. This would help teammates identify his attacks and avoid any confusion.

This post received thousands of upvotes, as many fans agreed that this is an extremely useful feature to have in the game.

“I’d love the idea of indicators to let us know what utilities are friendly and which are the enemies,” noted one player. This would also be useful for helping identify friendly thermite grenades and other throwables.

Since Respawn are already working on Apex Legends Season 9, we hope to see them introduce a similar system to the battle royale.

A new season of Apex Legends means a new season of Ranked Leagues, from map rotation to split dates, we’ve got you covered.

Apex Legends Season 10: Emergence is almost here, which also means an update for Ranked Leagues, so let’s get into the details.

Apex Legends Ranked Leagues is an excellent place for those who want to test their skills out and play for points in a competitive environment, which, starting in Season 10, will also be available in Arenas.

No matter how good you are, Apex Legends has a detailed ranking system that will place you on a similar playing field once you play enough games. With Season 10 incoming, let’s check out the updates arriving for the ranked playlist.

Although there are no significant changes for Ranked Leagues this season, there are still a few things to go over, such as split dates, rewards, and map rotation.

Split dates

As Apex Legends Season 10 begins on August 3, this would then mean that the first ranked split will also start on the same day, with the second split coming halfway through the season.

Due to the recent server issues in Apex Legends, Respawn has decided to extend the first split by one week, meaning the first split now ends on September 28.

With that being said, this means that the second split will also start on September 28, ending when the season finishes. This means that players will lose one week from the second split, so hopefully, there aren’t further server issues.

Map rotation

Every new season two maps get picked for Ranked Leagues, one which spans the first split and another that spans the second.

For Season 10, players will be dropping into Decimated World’s Edge, which has been showcased in the trailers leading up to Season 10’s release.

In the second split, players will be back on Kings Canyon, or at least the Season 8 version of Kings Canyon, with all the most recently made changes to it.

Season 10 rewards

Depending on what level you managed to reach in Ranked Leagues for Season 9, players will receive rewards at the start of Season 10.

The rewards include gun charms, badges, season-long dive trails for those who manage to reach the higher ranks, and new this season, Holo Sprays.

The rewards for Season 9’s Ranked Leagues have been revealed by EA, showing off the badges and dive trails players will receive.

Ranked Arenas

Season 10 will also mark the first season of Ranked Arenas, which Respawn released details about fairly recently.

3 new BR maps will join Phase Runner, Party Crasher, and Overflow, with one of them joining the trio and rotating with each other every two weeks. The new maps include:

  • King’s Canyon – Hillside
  • World’s Edge – Dome
  • Olympus – Oasis

As well as new maps, Ranked Arenas will also feature new maps and an exclusive ranking system.

Although not much has been shared about how ranking will work in Arenas, we suspect the names and ranks will be the same. However, how you receive points and the number of points you need to rank up will differ from Battle Royale mode.

That’s all for the ranked playlist in Apex Legends Season 10. For more updates, stay tuned on Charlie INTEL, and if you’ve been a victim of the recent unfair banning, check out our article for an explanation.

apex legends servers down server status

Like any other popular multiplayer game, apex Legends has its fair share of bugs and server issues. However, we’ve found a great way for players to check their region’s Apex Legends server status, so let’s get into how you can check if the servers are down.

Apex Legends dropped Season 10 on August 3, which to many player’s surprise, was a very smooth launch with next to no server issues. This was a very different situation from Season 9’s launch, which saw a host of problems.

Although the servers have been relatively stable recently, players encounter these issues reasonably often and may even wonder whether it’s an issue on their end.

If you encounter any future server issues, we have an excellent way for you to check the Apex Legends server status.

Are Apex Legends servers down?

Due to the Evolution Collection Event update that was released on September 14, players are experiencing difficulty connecting to the EA Servers.

However, it is important to note that this is not your connection, but rather the Apex Legends servers struggling to stabilize after the update.

Luckily, Respawn Entertainment has been hard at work to fix this issue, releasing a recent patch that seems to have stabilized player’s servers and extending the ranked split for those who have lost grinding time due to the issues.

If you are still experiencing an issue even after the recent fix, Respawn has confirmed that they will be working hard to ship another update on September 22, hopefully fixing the issue for everyone and making the server much more stable.

One of the most obvious ways to stay updated on whether or not the Apex Legends servers are down is by following updates on Apex Legends Twitter account and the development team at Respawn.

Usually, one of those accounts will be updating and communicating to players about any server issues going on. Further, you could even follow the Director of Communications for Respawn, Ryan Rigney, who is usually great at keeping players in the loop regarding whether or not the Apex Legends servers are down.

If you don’t have Twitter or have checked and haven’t seen any update on whether or not the Apex Legends servers are down, perhaps the problems you are experiencing are that of your setup or region.

How to check the server status

There is a great way to check the regional Apex Legends server status for these specific problems so that you can see whether the issues you are experiencing are regional or due to your internet service provider.

The way to do so is through a handy website called apexlegendsstatus, which will give you a breakdown of server status in all the available regions, as well as all the platforms you could be playing the game on.

The website will even tell you how much latency (ms) in each server, significantly indicating its stability.

Further, you can also report issues if there isn’t too much notice about the issue on the website, which will be added to a live report map you can check to see if people in your region are also experiencing the issue.

So, if you’re having issues, check this website to see whether it’s the platform or server you are playing that is having problems, or if these are all up and running, you can put it down to your setup.

Well, there you have it. This is the best way you can check the Apex Legends server status. For more on Apex, stay tuned to Charlie INTEL and check out our recent article on what Ordnance are and how to use them.

Apex Legends players slam “joke” $10 Holospray

Apex Legends players are slamming the developers for introducing an “overpriced” Holospray in the battle royale.

Nessie Holospray in Apex Legends

Respawn Entertainment often introduce new cosmetic items in Apex Legends, but players aren’t happy with a new Holospray that they consider to be overpriced.

There are various unique characters and weapons to choose from in Apex Legends, and you can customize these with some neat cosmetics, including new skins, heirlooms, and Holosprays.

Some of these items are more popular than others, and a few of them sometimes leave players scratching their heads. Now, a new Holospray has been revealed and Apex fans aren’t happy with it.

Apex Legends Horizon using ability

Reddit user the_best_wraith_main showcased a new Apex Legends Holospray that’s available for purchase. It seems to be Nessie wearing a golden crown while sitting on top of a throne.

While this is a fun little cosmetic, the player was upset about the high price of the item. “10 dollars for this Holospray? Is this some joke that I can’t understand?” asked the Redditor.

Many of the commenters were in agreement that $10 seems a bit too pricey for a simple Holospray and began slamming the developers for this decision.

Many players were quick to blame EA for this and mentioned that you could previously get much more for this price. “Remember when 10 pounds allowed you to get prime titans,” wrote one user.

Other commenters stated that these decisions are made by Respawn and not EA while advising players to not buy overpriced items. Despite this, a few users still appreciated the art on the Holospray.

There was also a little Nessie emote in Season 9, and you could actually see the monster come out of the water in the original King’s Canyon map. So, it’s fitting that developers made a Holospray for the beast.
