Don't be surprised when your player base takes a fat dump on you because your game after one year of being out is still having the simplest of issues that haven't been fixed. Disgusting. How is it my fault my squad lost a 2v3?
Last Monday I finally was on and 2 friends were that were playing so we were like"Let's go try ranked". We were all Gold since we finished in Diamond last season. First game we load in and all of a sudden I flash loading screen and I am back in lobby. Haven't seen that since first season. Anyways my teammates decided to bomb capitol and try to score some points if not there is loss forgiveness. Nope they died to the first pred squad they met and back in the lobby with no forgiveness from dc. Of course they are not happy and neither am I.
So we decide to all re-start our systems and wipe everything clean. Squad back up and load into the first game land outside of lava city and we all are lagging so bad we see the enemies running right by us to loot in front of us and turn around and shoot us with the guns they just picked up because we cant even get to them in time.
One more ranked game after that and one teammate gets the blue screen as we are landing. My other teammate quit and uninstalled apex right there. The one who disconnected said he will keep it for season 5 if there is one. Me I am playing a game or 2 a day sometimes not at all. This last weekend I spent most of my gaming time in COD and TF2 with some bioshock.
Seriously want to play this game but in it's current state and with my friends roster depleted for the 5th time since launch I ma just done with the ❤️❤️❤️❤️. No solo, poor servers and hit reg, solo queing is a fuc99ing joke.
Oh well they know best how to create their game.

I've just invested 4 days to fix my rig and change some things of my GPU setting.
Also I switched from EVGA Precision to MSI Afterburner for my GTX980.
I found out many tweaks and did lot of experiments to understand which setting does what.
But it was worth the time! I have a stable framerate now with 0 fps drops and my GPU runs at 90-95% power.
2 important things I have noticed:
If you use 3x and 4x magnification on middle to long distances your GPU gets a powerspike of 10-12%.
It's not happening with 8x and 10x magnification.
I guess especially with the open ranger optics the gpu renders the whole image + the zoomed image because you might change fast between scope and hipfire.
Especially Havoc and Chargerifle even get higher spikes in scope mode due to their lightning animation.
So if your GPU is already at 99% you might jump far over the limit!
Maybe thats the reason for some crashes and bluescreens.
I am using the framerate limiter of msi afterburner so in the ingame settings I deactivated the framerate target first.
But I actually found out that the framerate target prevents this spikes very effectively.
If you set the target exactly to the framerate limit nothing happens as long as you play normal.
But if you zoom in and should get a spike the renderer is breaked a little and there is not even a fps drop.
Try getting you GPU running stable at 90% power, even if you have to lower a few settings.
Use the same value for framerate limiter + framarate target.
It's really worth it!
