    [–] Badges like this should tell you how many you have, not just the milestones ShacObama 3 points ago in apexlegends

    This so much, I'd just like to see how many wins I have using the badge, not wins with full squad, but wins...

    [–] what your main says about you: ShacObama 1 points ago in apexlegends

    As a wraith main, the better pick first thing hits close to home, I've gotta type a damn essay every game that I'm not first pick just to convince people to not take her. To make it worse 100% of the time the people that ignore it and take her anyway are either level 15 and have no clue what's going on, or level 30-60 and still has no clue what's going on.

    [–] When your teammate steals the legendary Body shield from your care package ShacObama 6 points ago in apexlegends

    I mean, I'm on the side of best player gets best gear here, but lifeline's res is significantly better than everyone else's due to that shield, so I can see where they're coming from.

    [–] For a game with ONE goal, to win, there is no way to straight up track how many wins you have. ShacObama 2 points ago in apexlegends

    Yeah, it's not though. The badge changes on each milestone, but the tracker that tells you what tier you're on should show you the actual amount of wins you have, not what tier you're on, as it's pretty obvious what tier you're on if you can see you're total wins on that character.

    So if there's 4 squads left, and my 2 teammates die in a fight with 1 squad, completely get eliminated, and there's no respawn beacons in the safe zone, it's now me and 2 other squads, and I manage to clutch it out and get the win, but what does it matter? My team was dead so I don't get the win stat, I have no idea how many wins I actually have, and the only way to find out is to reach one of the milestones on the wins on certain character badge, but I have no clue when I reach the next milestone.

    To me there's no reason that you can't have stats to show someone is a good individual player, as well as stats for good team play. If I've got 2 random solo player's on my team, with 300 damage total, I shouldn't just not have my win tracked because they couldn't hold their own in combat, I think one of the main points of a shooter is to be good at shooting your gun at people, not to show how good you are at holding people's hands while you claw your way to a win with cinderblocks tied to your feet. Team play id important in this BR, more than most others, but that doesn't mean being a good individual player should mean nothing statistically. Maybe that's just me IDK.

    Just sucks that it doesn't actually update on how many you have, just what stage you're on, so if you're on the 25 wins stage, but you have 40 wins, you have no way of knowing you have 40 wins until you get 10 more and unlock the 50 wins stage.

    [–] Would you still want Shaco reverted if they made his Q a camouflage instead of pure invisibility? ShacObama 0 points ago in shacomains

    Because people don't want balance, they want a super broken, God throughout the entire game, impossible to lose champion, so they can get free lp. It's okay to want that, but it's not okay to argue it like it's a valid thing for the game, and yet people do it constantly.

    [–] I agree with lazarbeam with his arguememt ShacObama 1 points ago in FortNiteBR

    Okay, but this other guys suggestion that they should make the deagle not 1 shot brick and metal, would make it balanced, but somehow shotguns only, and I mean only, 1 shotting just now placed wood is just way too much to ask for?

    [–] I agree with lazarbeam with his arguememt ShacObama 1 points ago in FortNiteBR

    It's a battering ram? 98 damage to structures is a battering ram? Literally only enough damage to destroy a just placed wood wall?

    [–] I agree with lazarbeam with his arguememt ShacObama 1 points ago in FortNiteBR

    Like I've said multiple times, I want one of 2 things to happen, either the deagle gets a structure damage nerf, or shotguns to be restored to what they used to do, with the lack of double pump, there's no viable excuse for shotguns to do 50 damage to builds. The other guy kept saying shotguns have the ability to 1 shot, like it's a reason to keep them nerfed, but restoring them 1. Only gives them the ability to 1 shot freshly placed builds, and 2. Leaves you with the pump animation to deal with if you make it into the build, it's a perfectly reasonable request.

    I don't want the deagle nerfed because I can't deal with it, I want it nerfed because a similar situation has already happened and they nerfed the weapon's structure damage. The deagle's fire rate is just as fast if not faster than the average player's double pump was back then, meaning it's more effective than double pump at breaking builds because it does enough damage to 1 shot fully built wood.

    Also turbo building or not, there is always latency that often leads to the ability to phase through a wall that's replaced a recently destroyed one, it's not foolproof.

    You talking about all the any robot could be a Pathfinder skin memes? I'm not saying I want a Chappie skin, I just genuinely call him Chappie.

    [–] ChaseShaco backflip on stream no big deal ShacObama 1 points ago in shacomains

    Not to mention if you go to his Twitter he has videos of him doing his cheerleading stuff, where he does all kinds of flippy things.

    [–] Who do you ‘main’ and why? ShacObama 1 points ago in apexlegends

    I had to ask, playing LoL for years, I've seen so many people saying alt or alti, so I had to lol.

    [–] Who do you ‘main’ and why? ShacObama 1 points ago in apexlegends

    Is your phone auto-correcting ult to alt, or do you actually think that's what people are saying?

    [–] Apparently I'm not the only one, but still ShacObama 2 points ago in apexlegends

    No, I'm hiding my embarrassment of not hitting the second c in character.

    You're right, one can't be unhealthy and the other fine, because they are fucking different. They are not the same. So while double pumping through walls with a weapon that is reliable, also happens to one shot you while firing ridiculous, unintentionally fast is unhealthy, using a weapon that doesn't have the ability to one shot players to break a wall, has 7 instead of 10 bullets, fires WAAAAAY slower and has horribly unreliable accuracy is not.

    The way the deagle is being used is the same as the way pumps were being used to get into structures, with the difference being at the time of double pump, after you break into the structure you'd keep using the shotgun, and with the deagle you break their shit with the deagle>swap to shotgun and shoot at them>swap to an smg or ar and finish them. It's not the exact same, but you're not using the deagle to break down the wall, then trying to finish them with the deagle.

    So essentially what I'm getting out of this is "Make decisions based on how this game looked almost a year ago. Don't take into account how the meta of the game has changed, the skill of the playerbase now compared to then, what the developers wanted out of the game or anything like that because I don't like the deagle and want things to be the way they were."

    The way I'm looking at it isn't ""Make decisions based on how this game looked almost a year ago. Don't take into account how the meta of the game has changed, the skill of the playerbase now compared to then, what the developers wanted out of the game or anything like that because I don't like the deagle and want things to be the way they were.", it's more like "If you're going to keep the shotguns nerfed to shit on structures then the deagle shouldn't be able to do 150 damage to builds. Either buff the shotgun or nerf the deagle, either or, but don't just sit here like it is and pretend it's not annoying.

    To your last point about "if you can't double pump...." The point of shotguns being worthless against structures is that they are intended to be used against players, not structures. they have ONE SHOT capability.

    So, are we pretending the deagle was released to be used against structures? I'm pretty certain it was meant to be a high damage pistol that was kind of meant to be a better revolver. Also, you're kind of acting like pumps don't have a cooldown between shots, like, you break someones wall with your shotgun, and make it into where you can shoot them, and you now have to wait on this cooldown where your opponent has the ability to shoot you in the face and use your own 1 shot potential against you.

    There's no more double pump, there's no more infinite shotgun spam stopping you from being able to kill them once they get in, so there's no reason for shotguns to be hot garbage against structures.

    Are you trying to say that when you use a deagle to spam into someones 1x1 you have nothing but the deagle in your inventory? Or do you break with the deagle, swap to shotgun shoot them, and if you don't 1 shot them you then swap to your smg or back to your deagle, and finish them? Because if you're trying to tell me if you're using the deagle you're using nothing but the deagle in that fight, then I'm not sure where to go from here.

    Edit: Also you keep saying change the way it interacts with Brick and Metal as if there is anything in the game that does that, do you actually believe for a second that they will add 1 specific mechanic into the game where the deagle only does like 50 damage to brick and metal while still doing 150 to wood?

    Hell yeah to all of those things, but my absolute favorite thing in that game was specialist streaks, the ability to gain perks as you go on a streak was so good.
