That the competitive modes of elamultiplayer video games are serious is something that no one…
The internet bullying It is a problem from the origins of this. The anonymity that the network provides is the perfect excuse for many to go out and swear in all possible gaming communities, especially those of the most competitive games. Systematic bullying affects us all, young and old alike. Ron Gilbert he assured when he left social networks due to the treatment of the “fans” of Monkey Island for the appearance of the new game. Now, Respawn Entertainment has come out to make it clear that they are against bullying and that they will attack it with all their might.
A message that we have seen on many occasions from several different development studies is that, as we have mentioned, bullying has no borders and does not respond to a single group. In this case, it seems that the problem lies in a single game, Apex Legends, which has led the American team to an unstable situation after the repeated insults Y vexations.
Although the Respawn team does not advance a single reason, the battle royale It is, to date, the only game signed by the studio that remains in force that it has not achieved titan fall in neither of his 2 deliveries. Even so, the shooter that Call of Duty competition sought has also been an excuse for players to attack Respawn for neglecting both deliveries and their multiplayer at the hands of hackers.
The Respawn team has not made any drastic decisions in this regard. They know the importance of social media and studio presence, especially with Star Wars: Jedi Survivor scheduled for release next 2023. Still, the replies to this message on Twitter have not been as good as could be expected.

Some users they have made a joke the text of the American team rescuing once again the messages in relation to Titanfall and Titanfall 2 and Respawn’s intention to support it. Others attack the company for recent issues related to the new season of Apex Legends and excusing harassing messages from the rest of the players.
On the other hand, some big names in the industry like Cory Barlogdirector of God of War, or the own Bungie They have shown their support for the team. Be that as it may, the prolonged harassment It is not the best way to demand fixes in a game since, although we may think not, those on the other side of the screen are people like us.
