    I'm in gold rank, still getting matched with silver players? That's a bit ridiculous.

    Yeah, used to placement games, playing people around your rank. In gold rank the majority are camping, this system needs adjusting.

    All these ranked systems have a range they will matchmake you in.

    It makes sense the difference between silver 1 and gold 3 for example is minuscule.

    Wont be as extreme as in LoL but pros starting new accounts can have diamond MMR but still visually be in silver, they still play people of their level though.

    It's done with 5 tiers in each rank, so you've silver 5, 4, 3, 2, 1. Gold 5, 4, 3, 2, 1 etc. I do be getting silver 5 ranks in my games, that's too big a difference. A gold 5 rank should be matched with either Silver 1/Gold 4/Gold 5 players.

    They literally mentioned that, if there arent enough players in gold and queue times are too excessive.

    The Havoc and Alternator/R99 (because some times I just can’t find the stupid disruptor rounds...) is definitely my favorite combo atm.

    Havoc’s always been insanely strong up close, it becomes balanced because of its high recoil, though I can kinda control it at mid range now, and the need for a Turbocharger which isn’t common.

    The Alternator, on the other hand, seems a bit too OP. 33 body shot to people with armor is ridiculous and it has low recoil, lasers people!

    They've nerfed the Alternator already on PC, it was broken. :smiley: I don't think it's nerfed on console yet though, unless they changed it server side. Not sure how balance changes work on console.

    Did they? That's nice. Literally no point in carrying any other gun as your primary when the Alternator just trumps them all. They must've made a mistake in the first place, the hop-up gives the RE-45 a 40% or something increase in damage but gives the Alternator like 120% increase, makes no sense.

    Alternator, P2020 with hop ups are meta. You melt there shields with the Alternator, then finish with the P2020. It will probably get nerfed again, Respawn said they will evaluate weapon balance after next week.

    I'm getting better random teammates as I rank up, currently Gold 1. I was matched with two platinum players yesterday, noticed they played a lot more tactically, picking certain fights, wouldn't engage if they didn't have the high ground. It was a real eye opener, rushing recklessly will get you killed in ranked. You need to play ranked differently to normal Apex.

    I take that back about random teammates, getting absolute scrubs today. I was jump master in the last game, the other two idiots solo drop in completely different spots and go down immediately. :D

    Finally out of gold, that was the worst rank. I got so many random idiots who would leave the game straight away, or solo drop on the other side of the map.

    Played around 20 games or so, managed to get my first win. Also managed to get my KD from like 0.6 to 1 :)
    Been quite fun to be honest.

    Just like that another win. Oooo, 2 in a row. 8 squad kills and I got 7 of them B)

    Anyone have a fix for this code leaf issue? Get the error going into every third game or so. Some times back to back errors. Super annoying.

    Server issues, nothing you can do about it. They’ve acknowledged it on reddit but this error’s been going on for a while now. The servers are the only bad thing about this game for me, which isn’t surprising since it’s EA servers we are talking about after all...

    I get that error constantly. Shame the servers and netcode are so poor. I stopped putting money into the game, after Battlenonsense's video about the atrocious netcode. The gameplay mechanics are genius, but they clearly need more experienced developers to help with fixing the netcode. EA should send over a few of the Dice developers to help with their netcode.

    There's some methods on Answers HQ to help alleviate some of the Leaf errors, the dev's are working on it at the moment as they said on Reddit. I've been pretty lucky and only ran into it a couple of times.

    It doesn't effect you mate, but guarantee it's the main reason people stopped playing the game. Getting shot around corners, bullets not registering will drive you up the wall eventually. So much competition out there now, look at how quick Epic games fixed the netcode issues in Fortnite.

    None of that happens to me unless I'm in the wrong server tbh, which the game sometimes puts you in by default, but you can change it. When I'm in the right server, I get tons of code:leaf errors but no lagging during games.

    No for sure. It's annoying and has happened to me a lot before but personally I dont think there are any shooters or br's that are as fun as apex.
