    I'm in two minds about this, I'm happy for Respawn and it gives me some** hope that the Star Wars game might end up being good, but I really want to see EA take a drubbing and the success of this will only serve to keep EA around even longer.

    ** as in not very much at all, but more than I had, but still not much, as I'm sure EA will find some way to f*ck it up (TM) All rights reserved.

    well i been boycotting them for decades but in this instance they allowed the studio to have a free hand to handle the game they wanted and it has sofar payed off, with zero marketing but paying some streamers to stream but that is modern day marketing. People that are the big streamers will wield a ton of power to market games going forward. You can instantly tap into a audience of millions of gamers through a pwediepie if pie says hey this game is pretty cool i really enjoy it i bet you get a heavy spike in sales or interest in a game.

    Traditional advertising is dead, people do not have cable, many run ad blocker and the like, big tubers and streamers are a scalpel to reach a demographic. vs traditional media ad buys are increasingly irrelevant if you can tap the internet you got near limitless marketing potential.

    But what is the magic formula to do that? well respeawn says give them a solid fun shooter in the battle royal style and let the game either succeed or fail on its own. Sweeten that with a few streamer deals and boom you got 20 million people logging on to play in some capacity.

    How much that run them in advertising few 100k? vs a magazine or tv campaign could run in the millions. reach a wider audience to a degree out the gate that a bigger chunk of that audience does not give a f what your selling and is shrinking by the year.

    Respawn basically dragged EA by the collar and showed them how to market the internet.

    apex viewers on twitch peaked at over 600k tonight a full 500k more then fortnite had and when all is said and done any game that lessened the overwhelming stranglehold it had on twitch and on gaming in general can only be a positive thing, it happens to be another free to play game but from a well loved and well trusted developer that quite literally had nothing left to lose rly esp after titanfall 2 flopping so hard. they put their creative boots right on the table and its paid off big time. EA should be gold plating the teams chairs right about now and giving Vince Zampella a big fat bonus right along with it.

    "Single player games are no longer popular" -- EA.

    Seems they were right after all. :)

    Has EA even released any singleplayer games recently? off the top of my head all I can think of is Mass Effect Andromeda...

    *edit*

    Apex made me rage and I uninstalled it xD

    It's just too fast, rounds end too fast, then you have to join another, I can't get into the flow of the game.

    Yeah, very easy to counter though since you can see the end trail. But not bad though still!

    Wraith's ult is amazing for getting your team back in the circle since you move faster, her ability is good for moving through the circle without taking damage and getting out quicker.

    Ability is also good for taking a few shots then disappearing so they're tagging nothing, but it's the most fun when you pick up a peacekeeper, set up a portal to cover a bit more distance quickly, pop your ability and use it to flank super quick and blast em all in the back, if you can't wipe then portal away, have your team focus on the portal and any straggling enemies might stupidly follow you and meet their demise.

    Getting closer on twitch. There's the Doc streaming Apex with 50k viewers right now:

    Let's see how it goes within 2 weeks.
    Also, i never really checked youtube gaming, but the games mostly streamed there are really different from twitch:

    Actually serves the point. Large streamer will bring audiences no matter the games. The fact there's none gives a better insight on the trend.

    while that may be true about larger streamers *(payments have been made where applicable)* Fortnites Secret Skirmish live event is currently going on and has put the game back on top i still believe player numbers for Apex are increasing and it will be interestin to see how that plays out on twitch when the first Apex live events start to happen

    EA's got a winner on their hands. I wouldn't worry about fortnite. This is what the top 5 is looking like right now (unless twitch is regional or something).

    Is that direct x whatever bug fixed? I even installed origin to try the game but it crashed to desktop in five minutes.

    Does the motherboard you have with the Phenom support FX chips? I used to have Phenom 955 in my motherboard and then upgraded to FX 8320 using the same motherboard back when... I think it was around when the first watchdogs was released, not the most powerful cpu but it'll let you play newer games that Phenom are not able to, plus they are old now, probably find one cheap.

    This issue is known to ea, and SSe3 isn't actually the issue, on phenoms their ssse3 isn't delt with correctly and isn't supported, and on older core 2 cpus , lacking the now infamous "popcnt" instruction is the problem, both of these could be likely remedied completely by changing compiler flags slightly,which would have a negligible performance hit if at all.

    But they have thus far ignored the possibility of fixing this issue, for whatever reason.... :/
