Shroud was in the midst of a game of Apex Legends when he became the unfortunate victim of lag, getting downed by an opponent in the middle of a gunfight due to the game’s latency.
He appeared to have a hard time stomaching the loss, explaining that he hates losing games due to elements outside of his control.
“We literally lost to these guys because of fucking lag!” Shroud shouted, putting his head in his hands. “I’m gonna break something! Holy shit, I hate when stuff isn’t in my control.”
Shroud even left the game out of anger, comparing Apex Legends to earlier battle royale title PUBG, known for its insufferable latency and frame stuttering.
“I left the game,” he continued. “I can’t play until it’s fixed. This is PUBG all over again, dude.”
However, not all is lost; well-known Fortnite player ‘KingRichard’ gave a handy solution to Apex’s lag issue, advising players to wait at the game’s menu screen for one minute before changing the server.
While Apex Legends continues to experience growing pains, the game received critical acclaim upon release, earning a whopping 25 million downloads within its first two weeks after going live.
