Respawn has planned revolutionary changes for Apex Legends Season 12

Respawn has finally confirmed a long-awaited change for Apex Legends, which will revamp its KDA system. With the upcoming Season 12 update, players will no longer be penalized for rage quitting after being downed by an enemy. Adding on that, players’ rage quitting after being downed will be considered as killed, with the kill being registered in the name of the enemy who attacked them.

Earlier, players could escape from being killed by quitting the game while they were downed. This helped them preserve their K/D ratio. Respawn Technical Designer exgeniar addressed this issue via Reddit.

In the same Reddit post, he explained“If a player quits, and if said player has an assist marker from an enemy, the game will force-kill the quitting player, resulting in a death, and kill and assists will be granted to the last damaging enemy team.”

Another change that Respawn is into consideration is adding in more ranked points for knocks achieved by players before their death. However, the developers are in a dilemma about incorporating this feature in the current system.

Nevertheless, this new update will definitely make the game fairer and will be much appreciated by the Apex Legends community.
