Respawn's Grand Soirée event is in full swing and it's time for the first rotation of Apex Legends limited-time modes (LTM). Retiring the Gold Rush Duos LTM, the dev rolled out Live.Die.Live mode and it's a whole lot of fun.
In case you didn't know or figure it out on your own - Live.Die.Live is an LTM that lets you respawn on whatever teammates you have left once the circle closes.
Live.Die.Live challenges shouldn't give you a hard time, as they're along the lines of skydiving 10,000 meters, which is more on the grinding side than it is challenging, and winning a match, which is the other way around.
There's no question that the added dynamics is a blast, though. It replaces the often-suicidal task of respawning teammates with only the need for one player to survive the circle shrink. In other words, it's regular Apex Legends matches, compressed for more action.
To make things even better, it can be quite the educational tool in the sense that it teaches you one of the most important Apex Legends lessons - it's better to survive with zero kills than to die with 10.
Additionally, we're certain that Respawn will be taking notes, because there's no way they're not bringing some of these LTMs back at a later date. Two days per LTM simply has to be a teaser, and we're quite excited for the future as a matter of fact.
Respawns decision to drop you back in with a gun is great, but if there's one thing that could be tweaked a bit, it's the number of bullets one gets when dropping. We found that out for ourselves during our automatic respawn on a teammate in the latter part of the match, when 40 bullets simply wouldn't do.
