Respawn has already banned over 355K cheaters on PC.
Respawn Entertainment has addressed some of the issues that are impacting Apex Legends and promises fixes are in the works for most problems, except for a requested reconnect feature.
Respawn took to Reddit to speak to its fans and let them know what was in the works behind-the-scenes for the battle royale title that has already passed 50 million players.
It began by discussing how it is dealing with cheaters and announced that they have banned “over 355K players on PC through Easy-Anti-Cheat.”
Respawn goes into a bit more detail about how they will continue to combat these cheaters, including working with experts inside and outside of EA, scaling up its anti-team, and adding a report feature on PC. However, it won’t be too open about its plans because it doesn’t “want them to see us coming.”
In addition to working on fixing an issue of players spamming during character select and the drop and then disconnecting, it is also working with AMD next week to improve stability and performance on PC. Hopefully, that and more will fix a lot of crashes players are experiencing and Respawn will continue working with other partners to continue to make Apex Legends as smooth as possible.
While Respawn is working on all these issues and more, one issue it isn’t working on at the moment is a reconnect to match feature. It says that it has heard the community but it is not currently pursuing it because it “opens a lot of risk for players to abuse it,” and “[It believes] the resources needed to build, test, and release it are better spent focused on fixing stability issues so that the feature isn’t necessary.”
