A common request for Apex Legends among fans is a leaderboards system. Respawn responded to that request.
Apex Legends has been hugely successful since it launched in February, but there are still a variety of features that could be added to improve the game.
Drew McCoy, Project Lead at Respawn Entertainment, answered fan questions on Twitter and responded to someone asking if Apex will ever be adding leaderboards so they could track their wins better.
That’s a pretty non-subtle humble brag. Some of us out there are slumming it with single-digit wins... Keep requesting features and things you'd like to see in the game. We are definitely listening. Just keep talking to us and we’ll keep adding.— Apex_Support (@ApexSupportDM) April 5, 2019
While McCoy didn't rule out the possibility of Respawn adding leaderboards in the future, he didn't give a definitive yes or no answer.
"Keep requesting features and things you'd like to see in the game," he said cryptically. "We are definitely listening. Just keep talking to us and we'll keep adding.
The current way for players to track their wins, kills, etc. are to do so through the trackers on individual characters.
Of course, this isn't an ideal way to track things so the implementation of leaderboards is a no-brainer for those who want to track those stats.
Leaderboards aren't a necessity for players to enjoy a battle royale game but they certainly can't hurt. If enough players request them, it seems unlikely Respawn will be able to ignore adding them.
A good place for fans to make requests is the Apex Legends subreddit, something that Respawn regularly browses.
We have a desire for players to play our game at such high levels, but currently we don't have any plans to announce for any competitive scene. But we definitely do keep our eyes on what people are doing and what they’re asking about.— Apex_Support (@ApexSupportDM) April 5, 2019
McCoy says he wants to see players play competitively but there's currently not a whole lot to say about the future of esports for Apex.
"We have a desire for players to play our game at such high levels, but currently we don't have plans to announce for any competitive scene," McCoy tweeted. "But we definitely do keep our eyes on what people are doing and what they're asking about."
