    My wife got me to play this game with her reluctantly. I regret to admit that it is very fun and i keep playing it. I hate EA, but the developers are cool, as is the gameplay. I unlocked my first additional legend, Caustic, but i sort of wished i had chosen Mirage afterwards. Fortunately i read that Caustic is getting buffed. Anyway, has anyone else gotten into this lately.

    It is currently my drug of choice when I play the video games.

    I was initially hesitant due to the whole EA thing and just knowing they were going to find a way to ruin it but so far, it just feels like the League of Legends monetization system so I'm cool with it. The make it or break it will be the upcoming battle pass which was leaked to be around $10. It also includes a hero though so my real question is, how will that hero end up being available for F2P players? Will they have it available immediately for the in-game points or will it be exclusive to pass holders for the "season".

    Hit level 40 last night, so I'm only a couple a levels off Mirage now though so that's pretty cool. I too unlocked caustic first, the traps were amazing in theory but I couldn't find a proper use for them with my preferred playstyle.

    I love how fast the game is. The movement is as smooth as Call of Duty Black Ops 4 (amazing movement omg) but then the shooting is miles ahead of Fortnite. It still doesn't hit the mark that PUBG does for me, but I can't even play PUBG now because it feels like you're playing a slug.

    My level is in the mid-30s at this point; i have played way more than i anticipated. Very curios as well what their battle pass will entail. 

    Agree on performance, it is so smooth and i love the character movement. Many of the guns took some practice with handling (Mozambique here!) but i did find several that i like to use. Longbow with skullpiercer, havoc with select fire, 301 carbine with bullets, and damn, that peacekeeper is strong.

    I didn't realize until i looked into it that they never even announced or marketed the game beforehand. They just released it and said 'Hey guys here's Apex have fun!' so people had to just try it. Certainly made some more sense as to how it just came out of nowhere and was talked about everywhere.

    I would like to see some more balance for the legends because it seems like Lifeline and Bangalore are picked in almost every match, with Wraith and Bloodhound not too far behind. When i started i tried playing Gibraltar a bunch of times and although i do enjoy his kit for the most part it's a little underwhelming in comparison. Those hitbox adjustments can't come soon enough either.
