Game director Chad Grenier has confirmed that Respawn doesn’t have any plans to revert the Apex Legends battle back to a pre-Season 7 state, despite all the backlash that the battle royale developers have had. have to face since the transformation made.
Apex Legends’ latest installment, its seventh season since its release, has been pretty well received. It added a new legend, Rampart, and took players to Battle Royale’s third map, Olympus.
However, there is one sticking point for Apex Legends players; get over the battle. Respawn made the decision to move the title to a new evolutionary system on November 4th. Just say it the player was less nervous.
Redo yes edited it — they can̵7;t ignore the backlash — but according to Apex Legends director Chad Grenier, who responded to community concerns in a Questions and answers hosted by Reddit, “no plan” to soon fully revert.
The main reason, Grenier said in a highly disapproved response (his post had just under 1,700 ‘no’ at the time of publication), was that players “don’t have much to do”. at the end of each Apex Legends season.
Respawn often sees players complaining about the finishing pass “two-thirds of the season,” he added.
Respawn believes that one solution is to extend the time to get through the battle. This includes making the challenges more challenging and providing less experience in the new ‘star’ system.
“We tuned our challenges to give players something to accomplish during that final month,” he explained. “This change… has been calculated for the majority of our players [could still] Complete leveling without buying levels. “
In recognition of their merits, Respawn admitted that they “made a mistake” with the difficulty of getting through the battle and the money. director Ryan K. Rigney soon sorry; he even added that the developers of Apex Legends were not “masters of manipulation”, as some have accused.
However, the battle won’t return to style before Season 7. Grenier and the rest of the Apex development team are consistently pursuing change. It was “the right step,” he said; it just had some issues and was not good to start.
“Overcoming the battle is about retaining players throughout the season, so we’re not trying to get you wrong here,” the Apex Legends director promised in a strongly disapproved reply.
“When these changes came live, we heard your feedback very clearly and clearly, and quickly made changes to make the completed challenges about 50% easier and they I plan to make more changes… to give more agency when I’m completing a challenge. ”
So there are no swapping plans. Developers will continue to “listen for feedback in the future”, but Apex Legends will keep its Season 7 battle for the same future — they won’t be coming back, at least not soon.
“We’re not trying to secretly force you to buy more levels through the battle. Respawn is made up of passionate gamers, just like you, ”added Grenier. “I promise everyone on the team are good guys… [we] Just want what’s best for the game. “
Apex Legends Season 7, and its battle, will end in January 2021.
