Apex Legends players want Respawn to stop adding “lazy” new Legends every season

Apex Legends players have called for Respawn to stop releasing a new Legend with Season of the battle royale.

Apex Legends has received a steady stream of new playable Legends with each passing season, but players feel now is the time for Respawn to focus on other areas of the game.

Respawn have been fleshing out the roster of characters in Apex Legends ever since Season 1. The original lineup of eight has grown into a huge gallery of 20 Legends, with a new face coming alongside each new season.

Season 11 added Ash, while Season 12 introduced Mad Maggie, who after the initial hype, has seen her popularity slip in recent weeks.

With Apex Legends Season 13 on the horizon, players are calling for a break in the release of Legends, urging Respawn to focus its resources on other aspects of the battle royale.

Twitter user Mirage Main kickstarted the discussion, arguing that a brand new Legend every three months or so is too much. “They’re starting to feel lazy,” said the player. “In my opinion, they should focus more on maps/modes/events/.”

The debate continued on the official Apex subreddit, where other players suggested that key areas of the game are paying the price for new characters in every season.

“I couldn’t agree more, recent Legends feel like they were only added to be there, and not because of passion, which makes them feel almost like filler,” said one reply.

“I think Respawn should devote more time to tweaking the current Legends,” argued another player. “Pathfinder still doesn’t have a passive.”

A suggestion from apexzoner would see the devs switch up their focus every season. “From the start they should have alternated between a new weapon, character, or mode each season, just to lighten the load. Would be happy if they tried that from now on.”

Other responses called for Apex to offer the same diversity in maps as it does in Legends. Players have 20 characters to choose from in the game right now, but have to wait around three or four seasons for a new arena to explore.

It remains to be seen if Respawn will take notice of the community’s concerns, or if Season 13 will launch with yet another Legend to join the roster.

Apex Legends update 1.96 patch notes

The Apex Legends 1.96 update is here in Season 13 of the battle royale, and players are wondering what the patch has changed.

Apex Legends Season 13 is well underway and on May 23 the battle royale received a new update. Here are the patch notes for the Apex Legends 1.96 update.

Apex Legends Season 13 introduced a lot of change and new content such as Newcastle and the reworked ranked system.

Unfortunately, those on consoles have been having a tough time in the Ranked Leagues as the servers have been unstable with DDoS’ers crashing matches and ruining the experience.

As well as this, Newcastle’s Ultimate caused a bug with Wraith’s Phase, but luckily May 23 brought the 1.96 update to address the issue.

Apex Legends 1.96 update patch notes

The Apex Legends 1.96 update is approximately 400MB on PC and 600MB on consoles. 

Currently, there are no official patch notes from Respawn showing what the 1.96 update has done for the game. Having said that, we do have an idea based on known issues that are now fixed and a tweet from a dev.

Newcastle’s introduction in Season 13 brought a couple of issues, including an exploit for his own Ultimate ability. When Newcastle’s Castle Wall is placed, enemies that try to climb the walls are stunned and damaged by electricity.

Players noticed that this would cause damage to Wraith when she was in her Tactical ability, which is meant to make her invulnerable to all damage. This May 23 update has now fixed this issue according to a Tweet made by RSPN_Pav.

Not much else is known about the patch, but many suspect that it was simply just a hotfix to address this issue with Wraith. There are currently some bad server issues with players on consoles, as there is an exploit that some are using to crash servers.

Hopefully, this can be fixed as soon as possible, as it is causing massive issues for players in Ranked. We’ll be sure to update you on any new information on Apex Legends as it’s released.

Apex Legends Season 13 leaked Summer Tiki Event: Cosmetics, store takeover, more

Apex Legends dataminers have revealed new information about a potential summer Tiki-themed event for Season 13.

Apex Legends Season 13 could be getting a summer-themed event for Season 13, as dataminers leak new details.

Apex Legends Season 13 has already offered a lot of new content for players and a new Ranked system to grind, which may improve you as a player.

Fans are always intrigued by leaked future content for the battle royale game, and it seems dataminers may have revealed a summer-themed Tiki event that could be arriving in Season 13.

What is Apex Legends’ Summer Tiki Event?

Apex Legends leaker Garret has revealed new leaked content that may imply a Summer Tiki event for Apex Legends in Season 13.

Not much is officially known about this event, but as Apex Legends usually gets a Summer of Plunder store sale, it’s likely that the devs will be doing something for the summer season.

In Garret’s video posted on May 19, the leaker revealed some unreleased summer-themed Weapon Charms found in the game’s files by dataminer HYPERMYST.

The Tiki theme comes from the design of the charms, which possess tropical island flowers, an exotic fruit, bamboo, bright colors, a beach umbrella, and just an overall Hawaiian vibe.

Garret believes this either implies that we will either be getting a summer-themed event or a store takeover.

The dataminer also found some more interesting Weapon Charms that further indicate some sort of summer-themed takeover. One of these charms is called “Nessie Float” in the game’s files, which definitely shares a beach/summer theme.

Not much is confirmed about the event, but it’s clear that the devs are working on something summer-themed, whether it be a bundle, store takeover, or thematic event.

We already have leaked information on the Collection Event for Season 13, which is rumored to be called Awakened and has an Anime theme, so it’s likely that this summer event will not be a collection.

As more information is revealed about this potential Apex Legends summer Tiki event, we will be sure to update this piece so stay tuned.
