Twitch streamer Dr Disrespect argues PUBG and other battle royale games are more exciting for a viewer than Apex Legends.

Apex Legends is the hot commodity on both Twitch and the battle royale market. Since it’s release, it has sat at or near the top of the Twitch directory at just about every moment.

Several big name streamers have made their impact with the game, including Twitch star Dr Disrespect, who has since made Apex Legends his main game to play.

Dr Disrespect is one of Twitch’s most outspoken streamers as he always seems to share his true thoughts on everything and anything.

In a recent clip, he shared his thoughts on the state of Apex Legends from the perspective of a viewer, and he had some interesting comparisons to make.

“I think watching Apex gameplay isn’t exciting,” said Dr Disrespect on his stream. “I think watching Battlegrounds is way more exciting in my opinion.”

He goes on to say both Fortnite and H1Z1 are both more exciting games to watch as well. He then makes an interesting comparison to Overwatch.

“It’s kind of like Overwatch,” begins The Doc. “You know Overwatch, it’s super fun to play, it’s highly addictive but it’s just absolutely terrible to watch.”

The Doc still says he enjoys playing Apex Legends but he thinks from the standpoint of the viewer there are more exciting games to watch.

He might be onto something with that assessment as viewership for Apex Legends has started to lag behind Fortnite recently, which could be chalked up to Fortnite getting a new season while Apex Legends is still waiting on the first Battle Pass to release.

Once the first season of Apex Legends officially begins, we’ll be able to get a better idea of how Apex Legends will stack up to Fortnite on Twitch in the long run.

Apex Legends developer Daniel Klein has revealed the five most popular legends from Season 7 – and it should come as no surprise that Horizon is right up there already.

As the Apex Legends seasons have unfolded, it’s been easy for players to chop and change the legends they use seeing as a new character is introduced which each major, season starting update. 

The new character always receives huge attention as players want to test out the new content, but sometimes, they don’t stick around and can immediately fall to the bottom of the pile once fans are seemingly bored with them. 

In the case of Horizon and Apex Legends Season 7, she has been able to stick around as one of the most played legends – even cementing her spot amongst some of the battle royale’s long-term favorites.

Speaking on The Third Party: An Apex Legends podcast, Respawn Senior Game Designer Daniel Klein revealed how the list of most played legends in the new season had started to shape up.

“Wraith, Bloodhound, Horizon, Octane, and then Lifeline, that’s the pick order right now,” Klein told the podcast hosts in relation to the top five, noting that Horizon had started to settle in the top five after her initial explosion in use. 

Octane being so high might surprise a few players, and as Klein points out, he doesn’t “win a lot of games,” but he’s so fun to play because of his speedy abilities. Klein also noted that there is an “interesting situation” with Bloodhound because they have a high pick rate, but they don’t win a lot of games.

Additionally, the Apex developer revealed that Loba has also seen a rise in her trios win rate after her Ultimate received a bit of a shake up at the start of Season 7. Though, he didn’t note just how popular and used that she has become. 

As the season unfolds, some currently lesser-played legends might see a boost in usage after Respawn rolls out patches, so, we’ll have to wait and see as to whether or not the top five is shaken up or if it stays the same moving forward.
