Shroud lists changes needed for him to return to Apex Legends

Since his landmark move to Mixer in 2019 shroud has barely touched Apex Legends, opting for Escape from Tarkov or Call of Duty instead. There is ways for Apex to win his heart back though, he has revealed.

Shroud is yet to dive into the new Apex Legends event, Grand Soirée, leaving some fans wondering if he’s ever going back to his old stomping ground.

Instead, he has dedicated his time to other first-person shooters, primarily Escape from Tarkov. Although not strictly speaking a ‘battle royale’, it does boast similar features with loot and weapons, and the struggle to stay alive.

Before Tarkov and Modern Warfare though, shroud was often seen on Apex Legends, which he played frequently throughout 2019. In 2020 though, he’s yet to jump into Respawn’s BR, despite a major new event. In December, he said the game just wasn’t “appealing” to him.

The Grand Soirée Arcade event adds a new limited-time mode every two days, but the former CS:GO pro has explained that he’s “not interested” in that whatsoever.

“It’s not really an ‘Apex event’, it’s just a couple LTMs and stuff,” shroud said, “there’s nothing special about it.” He did say that he was intrigued by one of the LTMs though: the third person mode.

“But either way, I’m not missing anything in Apex. Apex is still the same game, with a couple of new game modes that are just for fun,” he finished.

Shroud wants “meta changes” in Apex Legends

Clearly, shroud is looking for more than just a few LTMs to really shake up the game.

“I’m more so interested in, I don’t know, maybe new characters? Meta changes,” he explained. “I’m ready to see their meta changes, with new weapons and hop-ups. I’m already ready for that. I don’t care about the actual game, I want it to change.

“I want it to be adaptive, you know? It’s been the same game for a while now,” he concluded, “that’s just my thoughts.”

Thankfully, it likely won’t be long until shroud gets his wish. The Grand Soirée Arcade is the final event of Season 3, with the fourth season right around the corner.

Set to start on February 4, Season 4 will launch on the one-year anniversary of Apex Legends’ release in 2019. We can expect at least one new legend, and a new weapon too (expected to be a new SMG).

Surely then, shroud will hop back in to the World’s Edge map, and see if Apex can hook him once again.

Apex Legends dev confirms highly-requested inventory feature coming soon

The era of ‘red dots’ littered across Apex Legends’ menu tabs will finally come to an end after Respawn confirmed they’re implementing a ‘mark all as seen’ button to the game.

Apex’s bustling community is rejoicing after the developers indicated the long-awaited quality of life update that is scheduled for the next patch, if everything goes to plan.

While fans of the game have known for a while that the feature was pending, there hasn’t been much news of it since seeing it on Respawn’s Trello board a while ago. Since the conversation’s gone dark, it’s been a waiting game to see if the developers would follow-up on the organizational feature.

Well, an inquiring fan created a mock-up of what the ‘mark all as seen’ button could look like within the character-select screen. But fiction turned into reality once Respawn Senior Game Designer, Daniel Z. Klein, chimed into the discussion.

The red dots on tabs have cursed the Apex Legends menu screen for a while.

“Could we get a ‘Mark all as seen’ button? Would be useful instead of going through all the menus to clear the icons,” user ‘TigerTankSniper’ suggested, before Klein was happy to oblige.

“Good news! That’s probably coming in the next patch! John Hodgson put that one in not too long ago,” Klein was happy to report. Hodgson is another Senior Game Designer at Respawn, who’s about to make a lot of the Apex fans really happy.

Since the launch of Apex Legends back in February 2019, there’s been a ton of content regularly injected into the battle royale. This stretches from Legends, weapon cosmetics, sky trails, holo sprays, voice lines, banners, and a lot more.

As much as the fans have loved adding troves of content to their personal libraries, every time something new gets added a small red dot appears to notify players of the change.

“I have an army of them because all the useless blue and white items I get, not really motivated enough to click on all them so now it just keeps growing bigger and bigger,” one person wrote.

The thing is, those little indicators can be persistent and a bit of a bother; hence, the quality of life update that’s coming into the game very soon.

But the community can let out a collective sigh of relief seeing as they shouldn’t be a problem in Apex Legends after the next update.
