Just witnessed 2 guys teaming up in solos. How much of a pathetic piece of shit loser do you have to be to do shit like that? Another retarded thing is that the game doesn't even have a "Report" function.

cannot say i team up but i do solo drop with friends

we have an unwritten rule not to kill each other until the final circle, before that to see who can score the most kills

How do you even know that they’re your friends?

you can tell pretty early if you have the same drop path or not

beyond that we don't really, if you mean how do we identify each other on the battlefield (we stay far away from each other as possible)

the event collection backlash is pretty huge, everyone seems upset and i think they're probably gonna chop the prices way down and make amends

we'll see, 7 bucks per pack is seriously the most egregious shit i've ever seen for something like this

would be an absolute bummer if i cannot get that wraith skin

I cant get myself to care about skins in a first person game. I'm glad other people do and help fund future development for games I like though.

you know part of me thinks this shit was probably part of the s02 rewards and ea stepped in with like 'nah let's milk this shit' and the respawn guys put their heads down in shame

they keep saying s03 is gonna be even bigger tho, we'll see

imagine if all this stuff was part of the season 2 rewards, i wonder how much money they would've made versus what they're getting now
I never even looked at it like that. Season two was definitely an upgrade over season one (hard not to be), but it still left a lot to be desired. Lots of filler crap still. If they had replaced some of the junk with even half of what's in this event...oh man. Instead they save it so that can bend the customer over.

it's pretty baffling as some of this shit is absolutely stellar, best skins they've made yet

they put the garbage octane skin in the s02 reward tier over the others? like what are you guys doing

Yeah, that Octane skin is pretty bad. The fact it's a level 75 reward blows my mind. And then the level 100 skin, while cool, is another R301 after just giving a free legendary one away not that long ago. Like, I just don't understand what they're really doing sometimes.

If the Lifeline, Pathfinder, Wattson (why this wasnt included is beyond me considering she was the new character for it), and like the Alternator and R99 skins were included in the S2 pass, that would've been sick and I think the playerbase would've been a lot more excited.

it's not like we're teaming up, not like you are describing
If it's near the end and you and your buddies are near each other but don't fire on each other but then all fire on me when I'm near, then I call that teaming up. That's what happened to me. I don't know if they landed separately or together, nor do I care, the end result was still them teaming up to fire at me.

oh no we def fight near the end, only the initial circles do we TRY to hold off (as in drop opposite sides of the map so no contact is possible)

if i see him tho, it's on like donkey kong

the people you are describing suck and should be banned tbh

Ah okay, you said the last circle so I took it literally. Games rarely make it to that last tiny circle.

I’m still pissed at the pricing. What pisses me off more are those youtubers buying and complaining...

I honestly can't believe they added solos before duos or quads. In a game with so many team abilities and respawn mechanics. So dumb.

The way people play in solos is complete cancer. All these dweebs would rather play hide and seek than ever fire their gun. 60 players and 45 of them are hiding in a corner with white armor and a shotgun.

These are the same kids that complain there is no firing range or whatever to test weapons. Here's a thought, play the fucking game and take fights. You'll learn real quick how the guns work. It's not hard. You want a firing range so you can get into an actual game and never shoot? Okay bud.

update is good but the skin prices are too high, i'd probably buy quite a few for 5 bucks but i might not buy any for 17 bucks

this seems like a mistake, they're now out 20 to 40 bucks from a guy like me

they need to find a way to intermix the economies for loot such that i can trade some blue or red points for discounts

18$ is absurd, but the dev posts on reddit sticky seem to be implying they wont be lowering the prices anytime soon
whales ruin everything i guess
it's a shame, i don't mind cosmetic shit but i would like to get those heirlooms without destroying my wallet

imagine how fire the s02 rewards would have been if the event collection were part of it

i dunno if this is respawn's doing or ea, but it's a mistake

$18 has always been insane for a skin, and it's no different for these new ones. Yeah, it's cool you can directly buy what you want now, but they can still go fuck themselves with their idiotic pricing.

This is 100% EA having to stick their noses into it. No doubt in my mind.

These guys are too much: "We know we fucked up with the Iron Crown event so we gonna make amends by letting you spend 18 bucks per skin, isn't that awesome of us?"

Seriously they can go fuck themselves with that shit.

Well, they can't really adjust prices on the fly, as that would royally piss off those who already made purchases. The best you can hope for, and the only thing they can do, is a change in mentality for future events.

The whole thing is a mess and yeah $18 is a lot for skins but that Lifeline skin is fucking wicked. I’m buying it. Won’t likely ever replace it.

Make skins cheaper, don't appeal to whales but to the general audience and have good will towards your game and company while making same amount of money. But no, they have to be greedy fks.

It takes forever sometimes to get into a game as soon as you hit diamond in ranked. Really annoying.

Respawn developers and community managers doing a masterful job over on Reddit making their entire team look like complete jerkoffs. So far the playerbase has been called dicks, asshats, and freeloaders.

Attention developers, publishers, PR teams, whoever. This is how you burn whatever goodwill you have built with your players. If you want to completely alienate them, take note.
