I stopped playing and didnt buy the battlepass because there is no solo mode. I do not want to play with 2 randoms every game .
Would be great with a solo mode, but please don't ruin the experience for others by quitting your team, just because you can''t deal with helping poorer players. If that's your reason.
I think my main reasoning for stopping and slowing down playing this game is merely the fact that development for the game is taking way to long. Bugs stay untouched or fixed for months (considering they don't even patch the game quickly or in a timely manner anyways), guns are way to imbalanced for what they are, (see 45 base dmg for wingman as an example) and just their lack of care for the game. If Respawn actually cared about their community and player base they would be hot fixing issues with more speed then they are moving at now. It's sad to say but they have dropped the ball hard and far on this one. If they don't address any major issues next patch (whenever the * it actually might be from now) then I think they will lose another significant amount of players.

I left for lack of skill based match making.
I will be back when / if it happens....
Not asking for something perfect here... just some vaguely skill based match maker...
In the mean time I keep an eye on Apex news, just in case...
I've almost stopped playing entirely because of lagging/cheating opponents in damn near EVERY match. It's bad enough we get sh*t on with random 10 year olds and idiots for squad mates, but when you're in a firefight with teams that teleport more than David Copperfield on methamphetamine, it's nearly impossible to come out alive. You'd think they'd have some way to group players according to ping rates and skill level to keep things on the level, but evidently that's asking too much. At least require a minimum ping rate to join the match or something...
Aside from the frustration of lagging opponents and no-skill teammates, there's the obvious lowlife * who have to run mods or hacks through programs to win. I know it's a constant battle to keep them out, but even with the successes Respawn has had in fighting them, they're still in almost every match. You know, the guys who headshot you 3 times on the move while you're ducking dodging and returning fire, and drop your whole team like an ugly girlfriend... or the ones you put 6 Mastiff shots into at point blank range, and barely (if even) break their armor... I'm not one to usually even read these forums, much less reply with complaints, but it's gotten so absolutely ridiculous lately that my brother and I only play 4-6 matches before we completely give up on finding a decent round. So what's to keep us coming back to play APEX? That it's a free game? Sorry. That sh*t may fly with the pre-teens, but not for someone who doesn't blink at dropping enough to buy a decent game or three on an average Friday night.
Get with the program EA/Respawn. Spend the money to hire more people who can fix the issues, and/or upgrade the server equipment/space or something. Whatever the hell it is you've gotta do, get on it... Or you're going to lose a lot more than some pissed off players.

as for randoms quitting, we've been bringing people into our discord etc and setting up groups if that person plays with us and does not go solo mode sticks around and communicates hell if they say hello at character selection we try to bring them in, Sitting on your hands and doing nothing about people quitting is ALL OF YOUR FAULTS not Respawn or EA, it's entirely your personal choice to engage with others.
Definitely these petty little coward cheaters.... seriously! What is the gain? Cheaters are just that pathetic lower life form... like a bad case of herpes, a puss filled sore! These ABSOLUTELY PATHETIC people should be eradicated, your gene pool sterilized! There isn’t a word for how low cheaters are.... they don’t quantify as a person at any level! SHWACK EM ALL!
I have now uninstalled the game because it honestly feels like they have already decided a winner before the game starts. There are
games when I am absolutely unstoppable and I know I going to win and times where no matter what I do it's 2 shots and I am down.
Battle pass is too much of a slog for no frills loot. I mean who wants a god damn LIFELINE QUIP FOR LEVEL 96????????????????
Be serious guys it's pathetic.
Stats are beyond a joke. Who wants separate stats for separate characters? I want to know how many games I've won, how many kills I have,
My total K/D and so on. An option to filter between friends and the rest of the world. You know the type of stats that every other game ever has.
Overall to save my sanity I will not be playing this game again. I gave it a real go (level 100 / level 70 battle pass) because it started off as something amazing
that could easily be built upon but now seems like the devs either do not care or are not experienced enough to sort the issues out.
YOU NEARLY HAD IT GUYS BUT BLEW IT BIG TIME!!!
I wouldn't say they blew it bigtime, but it was more fun to begin with. They have done a few changes, but it needs more or they will loose lots of players and even potential players…
