“The service works but the fight against cheaters is an ongoing war that we’ll need to continue to adapt to and be very vigilant about fighting,” community manager Jay Frechette explains on Reddit. “We take cheating very seriously and care deeply about the health of Apex Legends for all players.”
The team is apparently consulting with “experts, both within and outside of EA” to improve its system, with a report feature for PC also prepping for deployment.
Besides this, Respawn is working to resolve problems with “players spamming during character select and the drop and then disconnecting shortly after”, which could totally be fixed by identifying those people responsible, quarantining them into exclusive matchmaking pools, and replacing their available classes with a selection of exotic dildos. But I’m not a game developer, so maybe that’s complicated.
And responding to requests for some kind of reconnect feature, Frechette adds that this isn’t in the works for the moment because it “opens a lot of risk for players to abuse it”, and that “the resources needed to build, test, and release it are better spent focused on fixing stability issues so that the feature isn’t necessary”.
