The developers of APEX Legends have slowed down their plans to eliminate Tap Penalty, a move that is a meta-tactic that seasoned gamers are used to. On Monday, Respawn Entertainment announced that it had delayed its plans to remove tapstrafing from the game after discovering unexpected side effects from the change. The company delayed the APEX Legends update, which was supposed to remove the movement, because developers saw it interfering with other motion techniques in the game.
Respawn introduced this a fortnight ago, but in the past the trick has been scrapped, causing widespread consternation. The studio has given no indication of what changes Tap will make, but the Nerf will be addressed when the next patch is released.
When you are in the apex loop, Tap Strafing is a movement technique that allows you to perform hard turns in the air without losing momentum. It’s the kind of thing you’ll see at the highest levels of the game on the PC, but it’s not the way Respawn wants to play his game.
Many players don’t like Respawn Entertainment’s decision not to remove the Tap Penalty in Apex Legends. The developers invited Mokeysnipers, a professional player and YouTuber, to Apex Legends to discuss eliminating eavesdropping. It was their intention to address the most egregious use cases of the technology, but they have delayed their plans and will change this in a later patch.
Respawn Entertainment announced on Twitter that some tweaks and unexpected side effects that may occur in the future will be replaced by problems that have been ironed out. This includes a re-evaluation of how movement in Apex Legends works, which led them to conclude that they will remove typing from the game. We will have to wait until season 11 or a few major patches occur before the apex mechanics are removed.
It will be interesting to see how Respawn changes with these exploits. It will be fascinating to see if respawn modifications are exploited. With all these changes, the community is dissatisfied with Respawn but has found a happy balance with itself.
Apart from the changes to the missing movement options, since the controller was superior to the mouse and keyboard, Respawn neglected the infamous audio problems in the game.vIt should be noted that these changes only affect PC players, so it will not be possible to make the changes on consoles. Fixed an exploit where players could receive continuous rockets by exploiting the Valkyrie’s passive/tactical use of the VTOL jet. Fixed players who see increased speeds when swapping weapons in Sentinel Rampage.
In Apex Legends, some players scoffed at the change, saying that Tap Penalty has an advantage over keyboard and mouse players and that the counter-target support advantage is reserved exclusively for gamepad users. Now PC players can compete with other PC players who opt for the gamepad by default, and players can say “Respawn” to implement input-based matchmaking, leaving the tap penalty alone.
Respawn justified its decision on the grounds that it was inaccessible due to a lack of legibility and the backlash due to its aggravating ability to move. We are aware of the importance of the mechanics of movement for our players and have based our approach to the tap on caution to avoid unintentional gameplay.
While most casual players will not be affected, it will have a significant impact on the meta of the game at a professional level, especially considering how it is used. Faucet-punishing is the kind of factor you’ll see pulled from a wide range of games on PC, and it’s not the best way for Respawn to execute their sport. As one of the movement techniques in Apex Legends, Tap Penalty will harm players and game developers themselves.
If you are not sure what Tap Strafing is, it is a high-level gaming technique that allows the player to make rapid movement changes without affecting speed or dynamics. This controversial movement technique is so popular because it is so widespread that many do not consider it a problem, as it requires the weight of a move of skill. The idea behind the technique is to enable rapid movement changes with the same speed and dynamics as forwarding input by tying the mouse to the wheel, which means that fast input allows a player to change direction in the air.
On a mouse or keyboard, which gives them an unfair advantage according to developer Respawn Entertainment the other side of the movement, mouse and keyboard players excel. In Apex Legends there is a high level of motion technology that can only be performed by PC players with. The challenge left the players baffled for a variety of reasons. Apex Legends is a competitive game where everyone wants to win, and scammers get other players to improve their skills and use the game’s mechanics to their maximum potential.
Apex Legends will be even more entertaining with the Apex Legends Evolution Collection event in which Rampart will host a city takeover to gain her own heirloom and bring her own heirloom to Apex Legends. In the new season, players will not only receive new upgrades to Legends weapons, items, and Battle Passes, but they can also expect new heirlooms to come into play. The official Respawn Entertainment Twitter handle announced today that the typos will be removed from Apex Legends in the next update Patch 1.0.1.
