    likewise, your requests were mid round and my origin overlay isn't working for some reason.

    Using the word kent is what I've naturally done here in the past.

    Have had some good matches last night. Actually played more than I had expected before I first touched the game. This one really rewards teams that work together. Ended up being able to clear 1 to 2 squads at the end and no more "squeakers" as PsydFX has described.

    Boy did I play alot of Apex over the weekend!

    I broke my mouse thursday night however. So I had to play on xbox, luckily I am pretty good on the sticks and played with some Halo mates. Snagged alot of wins. Managed 4 in a row and made final 2 on the 5th game. Wasnt too upset about not getting the 5 peat though. The other team were setup and played final circle perfectly.

    Totally addicted to this game. Feels good.

    I got you on steam I think? ill keep eye out for you to see if you on and can join me and my mate, or me and benno.

    Also, noticed a difference in smoothness now your FreeSync works on your Video card? Should be bit less stutter now. Make sure G-Sync/FreeSync enabled and V-Sync forced on in control panel and off in game.

    Also even more off topic, the next monitor spec to drool over (I am sure will be ASUS variant if you prefer ASUS). Same as what you got now but has entry level HDR, 400nits, high color gamut.

    Hehehehe, was definitely surprising.

    I'm keen to see what sort of classes they release in future, would be good to see a different solid team-work/dynamic combinations. I feel what's available now is a pretty good starting point. Hope that they don't fck things up.

    You do, I linked the game via Steamlink but I didn't launch steam last night, was running it via O.

    Shouldn't matter to me, I was playing on my G-Sync screen.

    Texture streaming budget = texture quality?

    TSB sounds like it's a buffer for textures to load in rather than actual texture quality because you can have TSB set to off and that doesn't sound like an option associated with texture quality.

    Just been spending in game points atm. If I see something in the store that I MUST have then maybe I'll drop some cash on it.

    But the unlock system seems pretty good and I am happily unlocking decent looking skins etc. Splitting my time between PC and Xbox will make the grind twice as long though haha.

    I really hate it when randos just leave after they die. makes it a bit hard to do anything.

    Yeah they need to enforce a 5 minute wait or something if you quit a match but try redeploy right away to stop people doing that. We came second once after 3rd died early on and didn't let us even try respawn and they quit.. maybe could have had win.

    The packs aren't worth buying at all. So much filler shit. Stat tracking lines should not be handed out on a per character basis. They should be standard.
