TSM pro player Phillip ‘ImperialHal’ Dosen has demanded Respawn “accept the issues” with Apex Legends Season 15, claiming it will “only get worse” as the season wears on.
Plenty have been effusive in their praise for the new season and map, but pro player ImperialHal has been more reserved.
Now, he has demanded that Respawn “accept the issues” with Season 15 in order to remedy a slump in player count compared to earlier in the year.
Hal also stated that Season 15’s player count will only get worse once its initial “honeymoon phase” ends.
“”Season 15 will bring the players back”,” he said, before continuing: “We are already steadily losing players and this is just the beginning of a 70ish ranked split it will only get worse once the honeymoon phase goes away. When will Respawn accept the issues and abuse the opportunity they have with Apex?”
Attached to his comments was a graphic showing a steady decline in player count on Apex Legends. In August 2022, the peak player count stood at over half a million players but, in November 2022, stands at 403,000.

While still a monumental figure, it does reflect a drop in player count of roughly 20% and, as Hal pointed out, likely reflects an increase borne of Season 15’s earliest weeks and excitement for its new content.
Apex Legends Season 15 is also chalked to be the longest in a long time, with Season 16 not expected until the middle of February 2023.
That’s one thing compounding Hal’s fears, but it does give Respawn a lot of time to build on Season 15 and iron out the issues that still remain.
