Apex Legends left everyone surprised when it was released back in February. The game was released without any prior marketing because EA wanted players to test the game for themselves instead of relying on advertisements. Within the first week of its release, Apex Legends was being played by more than 25 million players. And this number later increased to 50 million players at the end of the first month.
Not only regular players but even top streamers on Twitch started streaming the game. Some even claimed that their Twitch’s viewership increased all thanks to Apex Legends. One of the streamers that stopped streaming other games to stream Apex Legends was Shroud.
For those who don’t know, Shroud is one of the most popular Twitch streamers in the world. In fact, he has been widely regarded as the number one streamer. The latter gained popularity by streaming various games, but CS:GO and PUBG are the two titles that helped him become big. Shortly after Apex was released, the streamer wasted no time and instantly started streaming it on his channel. However, although he enjoyed it a lot during its early stages, it seems like he isn’t happy with it anymore.
Shroud Talks About Winter Express LTM
During one of his recent streams, Shroud decided to test out the new Limited Time Mode called the Winter Express. This was the first time Shroud was playing the game after the Holo-Day Bash Christmas event went live in Apex. But instead of enjoying the newly introduced LTM, Shroud shared some negative opinions about Apex Legends’ Limited Time Modes.
Shroud wanted to first play the Winter Express Limited Time Mode because it is the biggest thing introduced with the Christmas event. However, even before jumping into it, Shroud said “this sounds awful” after reading its name. This pretty much confirmed that the former CS:GO pro is going to share some negative opinions today. And right after he jumped into it, Shroud said that this new game mode is questionable and he felt that Respawn could’ve introduced a much more festive game mode than this one.
The streamer even went on to criticize the entire LTMs of Apex Legends when he claimed that they need work. He added that while the Solos and Duos were the best LTMs of Apex Legends, the Halloween LTM was really terrible. He even said that the current Christmas LTM is also pretty bad.
How Respawn Can Improve Their LTM
While Shroud expressed his negative opinions about Apex’s LTMs, he still decided to mention some ways of how Respawn can improve them. To being with, Shroud suggested that the developers should completely change the game with their LTMs. For instance, they can introduce a LTM where players will have to participate in a death-run. It will be like a race but with weapons.
In any case, there are a lot of players who are happy with the LTMs introduced in Apex Legends. Maybe Respawn will one day introduce an LTM that will make Shroud happy. Apex Legends season 4 is also around the corner, and it is currently expected to introduce new legends.
