Despite a massive launch period that had almost all big names streamer playing, Apex Legends will have to make changes if you want to keep one of the most famous players, Michael & # 39; shroud & # 39; Grzesiek, interested.
Shroud, formerly a professional CS: GO player, turned to full-time streaming as he saw his channel's increase in popularity beyond the growth of PUBG, a rival fight royal title.
Since then, Battle Royale has been his go-to game when he is streaming, and when Apex Legends was launched, he pulled into more simultaneous viewers than anyone else consistently around his first month after launch.
Apex Legends suffers a downward trend
As with any game, the initial hype begins to decline, but for Apex Legend, at least on Twitch, the big names simply didn't play as much and for envelopes, not at all in a few weeks.
After his great scooter accident, he returned to PUBG and survival games escape from Tarkov. Although many of his viewers asked for more Apex, the casing seemed almost uninterested.
On April 15, he finally jumped back to King's Canyon, but "slow-mo" servers and the lack of content added since he last played, left the casing even less convinced than before: "I have three matches left before I stop the game forever. "
"I'd rather play PUBG – and it says something", it explained and confirmed that even with all the problems PUBG is in a better state than Respawn's fight royale at the moment.
It did not take long for shroud's opinion to be justified, because the next match was plagued by a so-called "slow-mo" bug – where the whole match runs at less than 100% speed for a time.
"Oh sweet, we have another laggy server? Wow, shocker! Shocker Apex Legends Respawn EA developer!"
Discuss why Apex hasn't managed to keep its interest, shroud agrees that a "big patch" can get back people who might have m
Is Apex Legends missing new content?
Respawn Entertainment has promised more content in the future, but since its launch on February 4, only one new weapon and a new legend has been added and the cosmetic content of the battle passes left many players underwhelmed as well.
The map itself is also completely unchanged since release, and there is no indication that changes or even a new map are planned.
Respawn also has its concentration division, which recently announced Star Wars Jedi: The Fallen Order is released in November, and so the studio can enter the "crunch time" for that launch as well.
