Designer Respawn appears to have plans coming up for Wattson,
one of the more prevailing playable characters in Apex Legends. It appears as though the studio needs to change how it feels to play as the static protector.
“[Wattson] outflanks Wraith and Lifeline in winrate (and they have very much like hitboxes to her),” Respawn lead game planner Daniel Klein tweeted because of a remark that Wattson’s capacities are not difficult to counter. “What is valid, I feel, is that her capacities aren’t amusing to utilize, and their force isn’t felt. We can quantify the force in matches dominated; we can’t gauge how it feels.”
Wattson finds a way into Apex Legends’ meta in a comparable ability to Crypto and Rampart, in that her capacities are outfitted towards planning, no response. Wattson, Crypto, and Rampart dominate at utilizing their capacities to plan for the battle to come, not bouncing into the fight like the other 14 characters.
Crypto and Rampart think outside the box a tad with their hostile extreme capacities,
which can be utilized amidst a battle to bargain harm. Be that as it may, not Wattson. She is the game’s just unadulterated safeguard, with capacities altogether equipped towards bunkering down and letting a foe crew squander their assets prior to polishing them off.
In contrast with different legends in the game, this implies Wattson can be viewed as a caring legend who’s just there to help her group win, not pile up kills. So it can feel like she’s a failure point notwithstanding really being a prevailing power, and for people who like joining their partners on pushing on battles and getting heaps of kills, playing as Wattson can feel not as fun.
We’ll need to keep a watch out for how this works out,
however, this sounds like Respawn is anticipating changing Wattson into a fairly extraordinary person, nerfing her current capacities to then give her something new to do that feels more fun.
I trust I’m off-base. However it is simpler to make some great memories in Apex Legends with different characters- – their capacities make it simpler to get kills, pull off unfathomable escapes, and polish off injured targets- – there’s a profound feeling of fulfillment in learning a guide’s design and afterward utilizing that information to raise shoddy fortifications with Wattson’s Perimeter Security and Interception Pylon, depending on pre-intending to dominate the game. It’s a feeling of fun that is more enthusiastically to accomplish, however a welcome opportunity to appreciate Apex Legends in an alternate manner.
Wattson is Apex Legends’ best person for players who need to win through mind, not strength – Apex Legends’ meta has the right to have no less than one person that truly exemplifies that playstyle. As Wattson says, “Some of the time, cautious arranging prevails upon might.” Her person will lose something if Respawn enhances the sensation of might that she has.
