Hey there, after a couple hours of playing Apex after the new update, I noticed that the elite queue is nothing different from the normal queue.
Getting Top 5 in a match is super easy and it doesnt really do anything. Technically, you can get in Top 5 by just hiding and doing nothing all game, which is what I think a couple people in my matches did in order to get Top 5.
As a reference, look at my screenshot. I am the Gibraltar, my friend is the Pathfinder. The Wraith is a random player we don't know. Didnt really feel "elite" at all and that is just one example.
We encountered like 10+ of these teammates already.
It does not feel like "Elite" at all.
