Apex Legends Twitch Rivals Showing was an Impressive Start

While Fortnite pits every player against one another, Apex Legends pairs you up in 3-person teams. The team-based mechanic is one of the biggest changes from similar games. The game rewards teams who stick close together with a minimum of dysfunction. For its Valentine's Days event, Respawn released a character banner one that only displays at the beginning of a game and in select moments while you're playing and a weapon skin that cost $11 each. It's a particularly frustrating price point, as it requires players buy at least $20 of in-game currency because the next-lowest tier is a $10 bundle.
It costs 10,500 credits to make a red dragon AR skin into a blue dragon, almost as much as it costs to unlock an entirely new Legend. It's like 20 levels of leveling for a palate swap on something you also have to pay $20 for up front. I don't know what the idea is here with this system, but it seems bad and ill-thought out and there needs to be more to do with earned credits than what the game currently has.
At the time of this writing, there are several threads about this controversy on Reddit and dozens of tweets about it. In a highly upvoted thread on the Apex Legends subreddit talking about the prices of the cosmetics and the coins, one player wrote.

That's insane honestly, it should be like 2 lol. 10 bucks per character is fair, but asking 11 for a not even that good, character locked banner? Kill me. Another player replied, This is not a good sign of things to come. Although most games can be played competitively, not all games can succeed as esports, and even the biggest titles, such as Fortnite, can experience difficulties. The financial upside of establishing a successful property in the esports market is evident, however.
All of this spare time spent gaming scares other companies fighting for our free time. Netflix said in January that it's more afraid of Fortnite taking viewers away than streaming video competitors like YouTube and Disney, for example. And there's lots of money to be made. Fortnite launched in July 2017 and by July 2018 had passed more than $1 billion in in-game sales. It brought in $100 million in the 90 days after it launched on the iPhone.
One of the biggest drawbacks to playing with strangers online can be a sometimes toxic online culture where slower teammates are berated or chastised. While mics are supported in Apex Legends, my experience is that most players don't use them. Fortnite is known for its cartoonish look. In Apex Legends, the world looks a little more gritty and lived in. The world was based off of Respawn's underrated Titanfall franchise, so the worn, far future vibe lends itself to a more militaristic feel. Part of the reason behind the focused anger around a game that is otherwise awash in well-earned praise is that EA and Respawn have instituted a complicated, multi-currency economy that doesn't seem to reward you fairly for time spent.
