In a surprising turn of events, Respawn Entertainment, the brilliant minds behind Apex Legends, unleashed a patch that put a halt to players exploiting Steam configurations to gain an unfair advantage. And let me tell you, my fellow legends, the Apex community couldn't be happier about it.
Apex Legends Steam "configs" had become all the rage among players seeking to outclass their opponents. These sneaky configurations offered controller players an effortless tap strafe and eliminated gun recoil as if it were a mere bug on the windshield of victory.
However, not everyone was keen on altering their Steam settings or resorting to console play. Many players grew weary of this trend, feeling that it tilted the playing field and made the game downright unjust. But lo and behold, Respawn had a surprise up their sleeves—a patch that put an end to the shenanigans of these Steam configurations. Let's take a peek at how players who stayed true to their principles reacted to the "cheaters" finally meeting their match.
"Heads up, legends. We've been rolling out some changes to @PlayApex to better protect the game's competitive integrity. We are making changes to remove automated strafing on controller and will also be making changes to prevent the chaining of cfg files via the +exec command…"
The response from pro players and casual gamers alike was nothing short of jubilant. Finally, they could breathe a sigh of relief, knowing that their beloved battle royale experience wouldn't be tainted by cheaters.
"Huge W Respawn!" exclaimed one player, their excitement palpable. "Bad players acting like they're good in shambles," chimed in another, in perfect harmony with the sentiment.
Pro players, the warriors of the digital realm, hailed Respawn's decision as a step in the right direction. Their support for the change was nearly unanimous, as they saw it as a defining moment for Apex Legends.
"This is just the start of a new beginning for Apex, let's go!" cheered the popular player TSM ImperialHal. "Love this competitive focused direction that Apex seems to be heading in going into season 20," added Naughty, echoing the sentiment.
Of course, as with any change, there were dissenting voices. Some players felt that Respawn had unfairly targeted controller players, demanding an equal playing field for all inputs. "Remove it for all inputs then, including MnK," grumbled one disgruntled fan.
But let's not jump to conclusions just yet. Time will be the ultimate judge of whether Respawn's actions have truly led to a positive change in players' experiences.
