    Ranked is alright, personally I prefer pubs. Went up to Gold 3 last week but haven’t played since, just becomes a campfest and see who can 3rd party better late on. :joy:

    It's not great to be honest. You need a full team, there isn't a solo queue. I've played with the lads, but they aren't good enough for platinum, so I've to solo queue, it's a nightmare. Having a full team matched against randoms makes a mockery of a skill based mode. It will never be a fair contest.

    You've to play tactically in the higher ranks, the majority of randoms have no sense of tactical awareness. Randoms rush for kills constantly, against other players who know how to aim and have good positioning. I'd stick to the normal mode, ranked needs a lot of work. Respawn said they will listen to feedback, will change ranked if the community isn't happy with mode.

    Ah right. Sounds like playing with randoms is a real issue then. Not sure what the other options are though

    I suppose it's alright in bronze, silver rank mate. You could even get away with it in gold. It's just platinum, above that you need a coordinated team.

    It's full of morons from top to bottom when you play with randoms.

    Had someone jump out solo and die instantly, when i gave him **** he said he was doing challenges! it's a douche move anyway but at least do it in unranked!

    Challenges shouldn't register in ranked, that would stop the idiots from doing challenges in ranked.

    Not playing it as much, the netcode does my head in, ranked is poorly thought out and needs adjusting. I downloaded a game called Realm Royale last night, it's not bad.

    I've not been playing, couldn't put in the time to keep a regular squad happy and randoms is worse than ever and nearly as frustrating as Fifa!

    Legit thought realm royale had been shut down

    Id give apex a go if they added duo, just having that third guy being dead weight always going to suck

    I still play every night with my squad and I have a blast. Haven't played hours upon hours of a game this much since early Fortnite. I think this game is perfection when it comes to gameplay, it's the servers and content that somewhat let it down.

    The biggest issue for most people is this:

    Nah just a ded thread. Solos definitely brought something new to the game. Gets pretty tense in a top 3 situation. Pity the new skins are so expensive and can't be bought separately. All down to pack luck.typical ea.

    If you have any sort of sense and map control you are already better than 90% of the randoms on this game

    Well playing on my own I just go for challenges/kills tbh. Played 2 games last night where I joined other who were in a party together and won 1 came 2nd in the other. Seem to lose most gun battles even if I do damage first which frustrates the hell out of me

    That’s good, you don’t wanna loot for 20 minutes then just die in 2-3 hits. It makes dipping in and out of fights and timing your heals an actual skill.

    The big brain play is so they can bring it back as a permanent mode and announce it as a new feature eventually. lol

    It’s not great when you hit first and get a few more markers afterwards and even with 2-3 shield cells I still end up dying/being knocked down. I know I’m not great but it’s just infuriating

    Just means they were better most likely. If I shred someone’s shields before they hit me and then I end up losing the fight when they had no time to heal, I always get mad at myself.

    New map on Apex lads, it looks fantastic. Netcode is still trash though, still getting code net errors.
