@VisualfEX See, unfortunately I've been seeing the OP's attitude a little too much at places like Reddit and especially in the game. I installed the game on launch day and only got to play a few hours. Over the month it's been out, due to work, I've only managed to log 15 hours into Apex so far. So, I am very low level with no kills yet. I'm still very new at the game. But, that's life, and real-life responsibilities have to come first.
Apex is also not my only game to play.
Playing as a Solo queuing player, the few times the past week I have played, have been atrocious. I'm popped in with higher level people that don't want to revive me (but have revived their fellow high-level player, so likely a Duo), screamed at for being low level to the point that I just turn down the incoming voice volume in settings and only use the ping system now, and so forth.
I'm not new at online gaming, I'm 46 years old and have been online consistently since 1999 and EQ1. But the sheer amount of toxicity I now get in Apex, just for being low level a month after launch, has really made me not login to play anymore nor spend money on the game. And it isn't a matter of needing a thick skin. I've been an author for over 25 years, I have a thick skin. The toxicity doesn't personally upset me, insult me, or offend me. It's just the fact that the crap completely destroys any enjoyment in the game. I mean, why deal with it, when I can just fire-up Overwatch, Paladins, or Realm Royale and not have to deal with it anywhere near the degree as here in Apex?
What system are you on? If Its ps4 I don't mind squadding up some games.

@Dominicomucci Unfortunately, I'm on PC, NA server. But I do appreciate the offer. Thank you.
Yep yep yep. I'm thinking I'm gonna take your advice buddy. I was on a 4 win streak going for 5 and of course a level 7 took my lifeline. Me, wanting to be nice, didn't quit.
I SHOULD HAVE.
He was so awful... Just baited us while i knocked one out of 3, and broke another's armor while he's crab walking to a corner literally listening to them heal.
UGH so frustrating. I wanted that 5 in a row SO BAD.
Back to square one.
Let me tell you what, your a noob.
what a joke, quit spamming forum and train more.
I am just going to say this brutal truth . I don't care how anyone takes it .
if you are close to level 100 and you already won a lot of games and have decent stats and understanding of the game . Then do yourself a favor and insta quit a game if low level or level stats people in your game.
fact of the matter those people have 0 understanding of how game works . most of them will try to loot for rest of the game.
They will slow you down . they will die in the most bizzare way. don't save them , don't help them. you will just die with them. you cannot win with them unless the other team consists of same low skill people .
I really don't know how can someone is level 15-25 and yet able to get even 1 kill.
there is no point at even trying unless you want to do charity and teach those people how to play . when you do tell them they will joke at your face tell you are you a pro lol .
in my games if I do stay with low levels I don't even bother to stay with them. I just do what I need to do and don't care if they die or do anything . they are dead weight and this how you should treat them .
There is nothing worse knowing for a fact that guy next to you cannot even hit a standing still target .
I am not here to make you feel good about yourself .
in fact I am here to tell the dev you just making my experience worse and experience of those new and bad players worse by not introducing a ranking system .
peace out going into the game to kill some noobs !
If you think in the same way even job-wise, well, we've a problem!
But maybe, if karma is real, life-wise you are the person with no skills!
It is true, it is a waste of time playing with Low Level ppl.
They loot all game, they don't push, when you are jumpmaster, they don't separate and land in the same place as you so you 2 have to fight over loot.
A rank system is necessary for a team game, nobody need a teacher in this game, just some brain, youtube and playing with people of your Level +/- is enough to improve. Playing with/against people that is so much better/exp than you only generate frustation.
Looting doesn't help to improve, when I land, I want to fight and not waste 10 minutes of looting, it is 10 min not practicing.
