Superstar Twitch streamer Michael ‘shroud’ Grzesiek has given his verdict on what would need to happen for Apex Legends to properly succeed.

When it was first unveiled back in February, Apex Legends quickly became one of the most talked about and played games in the online gaming community.

Unfortunately, it didn’t take long for the game’s popularity to plateau, as the lack of new content, multitude of bugs and hacks, and other factors really inhibited the game’s growth.

To this day, there are no sure signs that the game will ever get back to the level it was at following its launch, although shroud remains optimistic that success is still possible for the battle royale.

Discussing the topic with fellow Twitch star Dr Disrespect, who has also been an avid fan of the game, shroud explained the one thing that could bring prosperity back for Respawn’s creation.

RedditShroud got to try Apex Legends prior to its release, along with the likes of fellow top streamers Dr Disrespect and CouRage.

“Doc, I can’t wait for custom games in Apex man,” shroud said on stream. “I truly believe when there’s custom games in Apex, it’s going to fucking fly.

He went on to break down why custom games will be a hugely positive addition to the game, and ultimately help it succeed.

“It’ll be so fun to play that game with a full 20 squads, with good rulesets,” he explained. “If you make the rulesets about kills instead of wins, like it should be in Apex, oh my God, it’s going to be fun. I can’t wait!

Using his classic dry humor, shroud snuck in a little roast aimed at the Doc at the end, first proposing to team up with the Two-Time before taking his offer back on the grounds that he “wants to win.”

When will custom games be added to Apex Legends?

Custom games and matchmaking hasn’t been a topic too often discussed by the developers at Respawn, so it’s likely that they will be added later rather than sooner.

Respawn will probably choose to develop custom games for official tournaments and competitive matches first, before making them available to the regular player-base.

This would be similar to what Epic Games did with Fortnite Battle Royale, not giving out custom matchmaking to the public until nearly a year-and-a-half after the game was first released.
