Although mostly known for his Fortnite talents, KingRichard has, like many other popular Twitch entertainers, recently transitioned to playing a considerable amount of Apex Legends, and has provided fans with a tip he has found useful when dealing with lag.
The first-person battle royale has taken the gaming community by storm, shown in its vast player count even thought it was only released in February.
However, despite its vast popularity, the game has experienced numerous issue with crashes and incredible numbers of cheaters. Another issue that has become prevalent, as is often the case with newly released games, is the in-game lag experienced by some players.
KingRichard seems to have come to the aid of his fans however, tweeting a quick and easy fix that he has found works well for him. It involves remaining at the home screen for one minute and manually selecting the correct server that relates best to the player’s region.
If you are lagging on @PlayApex sit at the start screen for 1 minute manually change the server and you should be good!
