NICKMERCS wants Apex developers to provide better incentives to top players to play ranked ...

Nicholas NICKMERCS Kolcheff, who has been obsessed with Apex Legends since he started playing it over Warzone, believes the game isnt broken. He has gone through the ranks, both in-game and on Twitch, to the point where he was invited to compete in the ALGS.

However, he believes that top players like himself need more incentive to perform well.

During his live stream on Sep. 3, he mentioned that you have players who are on the top of the game. The best in the game. But then there are also others in the community.

According to the author, this has created a problem. Top players no longer care about the grind; instead, they strive to get farm lobbies, which means they are not playing correctly.

Nevertheless, the Twitch star has a feasible solution in mind.

The only way you can change that is by incentivizing it, according to the expert. He provided some simple examples, such as adding skins and heirlooms as seasonal rewards for placing highly.

After much reflection, he came up with an idea that he believes would be even more successful. You could give it a little cash. Perhaps a little prize pool. It wouldn't be ALGS, but it's a sweat session, according to him.

What NICKMERCS is referring to sounds like a League of Legends Champions Queue, which Riot Games has recently included to their long-running franchise in order to entice top players in North America to take the game more seriously.

Or, he continued, there might be a split-ending streamed tournament.

You may conduct a tournament with top players at the end of each match. A lot of pros would definitely pay attention and fight it out. There are so many options.

NICKMERCS believes that Apex's ranked experience is much harder than other battle royales like Fortnite and Warzone because the average player's skill level is much higher in the character-based title.

Nevertheless, he feels its a bit lacking for Apex players who are at the pinnacle of the Respawn battle royale.

Spicing things up with skins, heirlooms, money, or a tournament might change that.
