Listener Questions (Tweet Us or Email Hello@OKBeast.com):
Stephen Fontana writes in “Question: How long do you think the new map should be the only map? I think it should always be only one map at a time, rotated by season. What say you?“
Isaac writes in, “My questions and thoughts are these: So I have a friend I team up with. He is just shy of 9,000 kills with lifeline. Many wins. I have 1,300 kills with pathfinder and less wins. Obviously when we play ranked in diamond everyone is very good. The competition is very good. But when I pair up with him casually, just clicking play apex on the que screen. The lobby we get thrown into is still filtered to the best players. When we play with casually apex we still play the best of the best. If I were to play with friends that don’t have very many kills or if I just play solo, the games have a lot more noobs.
This seems messed up. So if you don’t play in ranked you still play players of similar skill. Do other games do this? Is this common practice to have an unseen filter? Call me a poor sport for wanting to wreck noobs but I find myself not wanting to play with my high skill apex friends. I play a game with them and I get 1 kill, 200 damage, average. I team up with bad teammates or just solo que and get 5 kills, 1000 average.
Should this be changed? Should this stay the same? I’ve noticed this since the beginning of season 2. Can’t wait to hear your thoughts and how much you guys have experienced this. Sorry for the book of an email! Love your show!”
