Too easy to drop from Apex Legends game.

When I die, it is WAAAAAY to easy to accidentally drop from the game. 2 simple button presses and I can no longer play in the match with my premade squad of friends. There's very little indication of whether the team is still alive or not, and it's very easy to press the wrong button twice when trying to move to spectate in the heat of the moment after just dying.

Happened to me some times too.

I think this death recap UI has serious UX issues.


First of all, the Circle/Back button was disabled before this patch so now this button is avaiable as soon as one dies, the new UI facilitates rage quitting because you can lave by pressing 2 buttons, before you had to press start, leave and confirm (3 buttons).


Also the skip button (X)  transition is way to long and uncomfortable, you die and can't see anything for a while so meanwhile the death recap is blocked with this black screen you can only press R1/L1 to switch useless tabs and press Circle to leave. The X button for skipping doens't work until kinda 10 seconds so this is kinad infurating because you can't see what your team is doing which supports the frustration IMO, promoting rage quitting.
