Respawn Entertainment’s popular battle royale title has attracted an increased level of criticism mainly after the release of the Season 1 Battle Pass, with a section of the game’s fanbase arguing that it needs more new content.
However, NRG Esports’ dizzy has revealed that while comments such as this, and claims that the game is “dead,” have become very popular among the online community, he’d rather not see them while he’s playing.
“When I’m streaming, all of the 'Apex is dead' comments and shit is so annoying like who the fuck cares, it’s a video game to entertain us,” the pro player tweeted on April 27, clearly unhappy with how the game is being perceived by some gamers.
For those who have been watching dizzy's streams on Twitch, and have been calling for him to play another game, he simply said: “Keep it to yourself,” during the same Twitter post.

Dizzy has enjoyed a tremendously successful vein of form, where competitive competitions are concerned, while playing Apex Legends since its shock February 4 release.
Many fans would argue that the player carried Tyler ‘Ninja’ Blevins to his first Apex Legends victory during Twitch rivals and he has continued that with Code Red tournaments wins as well - currently the winningest player in prize money.
Whether or not this strong message, from somebody of this stature, will go some way in preventing more negativity surrounding Apex Legends in the future remains to be seen. However, it’s crystal clear that he doesn't want to see it in his own broadcasts.
