Apex Legends Season 8 went live Feb. 2, and while the reception to it has been mostly positive, there have been problems with laggy servers and connection issues.

Although the introduction of new legend Fuse and the return of King's canyon have been immensely satisfying for players, the poor performance of the servers and the disconnects many are facing have been vey irritating to many. Things such as slow-mo servers where everything in the match seems to be running at a reduced speed, and infinite loading screens where players are unable to even get in the game, are some of the biggest frustrations in Season 8.

Multiple posts on social media have expressed their annoyance at these issues, with some even coming from professional players like TSM's Albralalie. It's clear that the community's tolerance for these issues is growing more and more thin.

The good news is that Respawn is aware of these problems and seem committed to fixing them. New updates in Season 8 will likely address or at least provide some communication about these issues. Server and connectivity issues are never easy but seeing as EA seems committed to making Apex Legends one of their most high-priority games, fixing said issues are a necessity.
