Shroud wants Respawn Entertainment to learn from Valorant

In a recent stream, Shroud shed light on certain key aspects that make Valorant fun as compared to Apex Legends. The streamer stated that the incredible focus on the use of abilities is the main reason Riot Games could produce such a fun experience. Respawn has created a balanced version of the Battle Royale game, but it still lacks in this key area. Apex places special emphasis on gunplay and movements, while abilities feel secondary.

I wish, Apex went more in the direction of abilities. It’s too focused on the core mechanics, gun skills, movement. I wish it was more about the characters and what they can do, rather than like a touch of it. I just think it would be more fun if the abilities were focused, rather than your gun skills and movement. 

Don’t get me wrong like they balanced it well, but you can tell it is more in the direction of movement and gunplay. I just wish it was, I just wish it was a little more abilities, just a touch more. I think it would be way more fun, way more fun.

That’s what I mean about Apex like I wish there was more ability focus than f*****g core mechanics because none of the characters are fun. I don’t play a character in Apex and I feel, yes I am having so much fun with this character because all of them do the same, you just shoot s** t.”
