I finally became the kill leader during a match. It only took like 35-40 hours of playing.

If you split from the drop group immediately with no intension of going anywhere but where you want to go, that's the same as throwing the match. We can all agree with that, right? We're all decent people?

I dont know if I'd call it throwing. Selfish? Yea. Stupid? Sure. A waste of time? Most definitely. Arrogant? Absolutely. Thing is if you're actually good enough to solo drop and win a populated area more often than not, it doesn't matter where you drop so you're better off dropping with your team anyway.

I wouldn't call it throwing unless they're just running around stocking up on level 1 scopes to leave a cute deathbox, or landing in the ocean. I'd also say, if you're dropping hot and someone doesn't want to go with you, you guys should be on the mic discussing or at least using pings.

If I'm on an elite streak, I find myself breaking off of my group when they make bad decisions. I'll ping where we need to be. In regular Apex, it's ride-or-die (with some exceptions of course - I'm not here to protect someone's loot FOMO)

I don't even mean dropping hot, I mean literally spitting off the second the countdown ends before a location has been pinged.

Last night, I had a jump master relinquish SPECIFICALLY so they could jump alone.

These are people playing the wrong game.

It's started. Overall good, though a big problem where the new battle pass level system is EXCLUSIVELY based on challenges, meaning every second not spent alive is wasting time not earning points, meaning quitting...seems like the smarter choice to level up faster...

Also, there are situations where you get way more experiencing jumping away from your allies to do some challenge, like opening 10 bins in airbase, and quitting immediately, then you would get for playing an winning and entire match.

...launching this without raising the level cap was a big mistake. There's absolutely zero incentive to actually play the game versus cheesing challenges...

Wooooh yeah about half the matches have people splitting now. Some of these challenges are literally a full level just for landing in a certain area, so why wouldn't you split? They're going to have to do something abiut this. Raising the cap would solve it easy.

There is no reason not to quit if you don't feel like you can earn more challenges if you left than you continued.

Ah, so there is actually an EXP for the Battlepass, it's just not made as obvious. You also get WAYYYYYYY more for the challenges than playing.
