The 15th season of “Lunar Eclipse” once again made changes to the entry requirements for season points. Now players must reach level 20 to participate in the point battle, which relatively increases the cost of entry time for plug-in players.
In terms of shrinking circles, the time before circle 1 shrinks has been increased from 60 seconds to 90 seconds, which is mostly good news for players. At the same time, by canceling the initial flag pick-up animation when acquiring the second flag, the time required to pick up teammates’ flags from the death box is reduced, and the card-picking animation time is reduced, so that the next action can be made faster.
Weapon balance has been adjusted according to past practice (too strong, weakened, too weak to increase) with many up and down numerical adjustments; treasure chests are rotated, mastiff shotguns return to the ground, RE-45 and jammer ammunition enter treasure chests .
It is worth mentioning that the damage of the accessory “Turbocharger” (Focus SMG, Habok) is reduced by 1 when equipped, that is, the damage is reduced due to the cancellation of the heat gun time; in addition, vertebral ammunition, enhanced loader, kinetic energy supply, etc. Accessories have been removed from the ground loot and crafting sets.
Overall, Apex Legends made a number of QoL changes in Season 15 “Eclipse” to reflect past complaints from the player community, and it also shows that the arrival of “Call of Duty: Modern Warfare II 2022” and “Battlefield” With the launch of “Special Attack 2” into the market for free, “Apex Heroes” is bound to respond more to the needs of players in the face of competition.
However, for most players, everyone still hopes to obtain a more stable server connection quality and a game environment without plug-ins.
