SkillUp's video on Apex. (Gaming)

I've been waiting for him to put out a video all week.

His point about the map design is one I hadn't considered before, mostly just because I don't really have much experience with other BR maps.

But the fact that the Apex Legends map is basically a bunch of separate, walled-off arenas really works well. The whole thing feels large and cohesive, but as the circle collapses, you're forced to move to different areas of the map. The route you take and how much time you have to get there can be a huge tactical choice. If you're strapped for time, you might be forced to go through an obvious choke point, or you can decide to go around and have to burn health items to survive being outside the bubble. Just really great stuff.
