In APEX LEGENDS, it is possible to play with players such as friends and players in addition to random matching according to the mode. When playing games with other players, they send invitations from Friendlists. If accepted, you can play with the player.
However, it seems that an unauthorized method of kidnapping players ignored such steps has been braided. An overseas streamer has posted a clip when he was kidnapped.
The victim was the streamer Camms. In the distribution, participated in the Storm Point trio casual match without forming a unit in advance. Along with the so-called wild (random matching) players, they are fighting fierce immediately after descent. He is struggling with Arcster and flagged grenade. However, the game suddenly switched to the road screen. I wonder if it’s an error, and the game shifts to the shooting practice area.
Immediately, the player of the passfinder broke in at the firing practice area. The player sent a message in the chat column saying OWNED (slang that has been caught or your losing) and leaves the match without doing anything. In this eerie phenomenon, Camms seems to be unable to hide the upset, saying, I was kidnapped!?
In fact, this is not the first time that the distributor is kidnapped by a misconduct. A similar kidnapping case had occurred in Japan last February. At that time, the players who were participating in the unit and waiting in the lobby were forced to participate in another unit due to fraud or defect. Conversely, in the past, there has been an incident in the past, when fraudulent people who did not invite participate in streamer units.
On the other hand, the incident that seems to be this fraud is to take off the match during play and take it away to the shooting practice area. It can be said that it is more malicious than the past. Camms was clipped as a clip and reported to CONOR FORD, Hideouts, a security person in charge of the Apex Legends official account and the developer Respown Entertainment. He has received a response from the EA HELP official account.
APEX LEGENDS where eerie fraudulent people appear. If the kidnapping and intrusion case, which had been hidden for a while, had recurred in a malicious manner, the distributors would be particularly anxious. I want to watch future trends.
