SHROUD EXPLAINS WHY NEW APEX LEGENDS MAP HAS HIM WORRIED FOR BATTLE ROYALE

WHAT HAPPENED?

Michael ‘Shroud’ Grzesiek has been sinking his teeth into the new Apex Legends map, Storm Point, and has already found a major problem.

In particular, Storm Point’s massive size increase over World’s Edge and Olympus has the Twitch star worried, as does how Respawn designed the map elements.

This map was made to have less third parties? I mean it’s a pretty big map, but I think it depends where you land. Like, you still get constantly third partied if you jump in certain spots on the map, every time.

The other problem, he said,  is if you avoid third party spots you will never see anyone until late: “It’s f**king big. You go to the end, you’ll see nobody.”

There just aren’t that many movement spots. I feel like it’s becoming a character-advantage, right? Like that Pathfinder got up that building because he used his “Q”. I have no way to get up. There’s no way to get up, so it’s character-diff, so you’re just running around looking.

Shroud may sound a little down on the new map, but the human aimbot’s concerns over Apex Legends come from a place of love.
