One of Apex’s highest-picked legends falls to the bottom of the charts after multiple kit changes

One of the most popular Apex Legends characters throughout the entire year has dropped down to their lowest point ever, having been sidelined and forgotten by both the casual and competitive communities.

According to Apex Legends Status, Seer has tied for last place in the global pick rate, with only one percent of the player base choosing to use the Ambush Artist. Previously, Seer ranked in the top five out of 24 playable legends but now sits at his lowest-ever pick rate since his season 10 introduction.

Seer’s release dominance could be attributed to his unique Recon abilities, as he was able instantly scan for enemies at any time without cooldown thanks to his passive, while other legends like Bloodhound would have to burn long cooldowns for the same effect. His tactical also offered the most information and utility mid-fight, as it damaged, silenced, slowed, blinded, and canceled the healing or reviving actions of any enemies caught in the radius while revealing the exact armor and health to his entire team.

These traits would lead Seer to the top of the pick leaderboards and cause Respawn to target him in multiple seasons with a wide variety of nerfs that slowly took away integral features of his kit. A mid-season 10 patch would remove his tactical’s damage and blinding effect, and season 15 would make Seer’s passive audible to enemies while in use, taking away his ability to ambush enemies. 

However, the most notable changes would come in the Season 17 Dressed to Kill update, which introduced nerfs to all three parts of his kit: an additional delay and reduced range to his Heartbeat Sensor, Focus of Attention losing the ability to cancel enemies who are healing or reviving teammates, and Exhibit losing throw distance and the diamond body markers for enemies in the ultimate. 

These nerfs destroyed multiple ability combos, like with Cataylst’s Dark Veil, as Exhibit was the only scan ability in the entire game to still work through the wall before the nerfs, making him an invaluable asset in any team composition.

On the competitive side of Apex, Seer was universally acclaimed as the most important Recon legend, maintaining a 60% pick rate in both Split One and Split Two Playoffs. However, teams would slowly phase Seer out of their compositions throughout the Pro League as more aggressive legends like Horizon and Bloodhound took his place, able to gain information and capitalize on it quicker than a nerfed Seer.

The 2023 ALGS Championship also featured the least amount of Seer play ever in a LAN environment, as he wasn’t even picked until day three of the competition, completely overlooked by all 40 international teams during the Groups Stage.

He would end the tournament with only seven picks, making up less than one percent of the Championship legend pick rate. In comparison, Mad Maggie and Wraith, who weren’t even picked at all in the entire ALGS year, made their debut in the Group Stage and ended with more picks than Seer before his arrival on day three.

Seer now sits as the most unpopular legend in the game, having lost his entire identity as an offensive scan legend that enabled his team to identify weak targets in a fight, a role now taken by Revenant Reborn. Now only seen as useful for his tactical’s silence duration, Seer mains will have to wait until next season’s patch notes if Respawn will walk back any of the myriad nerfs to his kit.

坂本昌行、19年ぶりドラマ主演 「チャンスがあればドラマにも挑戦したいと思っておりました。そんなタイミングでしかも主演!」:中日スポーツ・東京中日スポーツ

風変わりなペットドクター花咲万太郎を演じる坂本昌行  元V6の俳優坂本昌行(50)がBS―TBSのオリジナル2時間ミステリー「ペットドクター花咲万太郎の事件カルテ」(3月26日午後7時)で主演を務めることが明らかになった。舞台中心で活躍してきた坂本はテレビドラマの主演は2003年以来19年ぶり。同局のドラマは初登場だ。坂本が演じるのは風変わりだが、動物愛あふれる獣医師。実生活でも犬と猫と暮らしているといい、「今、自分が持っているものを作品に注ぎ込みたい」と熱い気持ちを明かしている。  脚本は「警視庁・捜査一課長」シリーズなどを手掛ける深沢正樹さん、監督は映画「探偵はBARにいる」シリーズの橋本一さんだ。  物語は、動物病院勤務の獣医師・花咲万太郎(坂本)がある夜、犬の散歩中に遠くから響いてきた犬の鳴き声に気付き、駆けつけると初老男性の遺体を発見。事故か事件か。男性は複雑な事情がありそうなペット用品通販会社の社長だった。第一発見者となった万太郎。万太郎とバディを組み、真相解明に挑むのは矢田亜希子(43)演じる元エリート検事だったが、捜査の失敗で警察に出向させられた経歴を持つ強気の刑事・蓑田玲子だ。  劇中には、万太郎が現場から連れ帰った社長の愛犬をはじめ、動物が多数登場。一方、動物を愛するものの、人間世界にはまったく関心を寄せない万太郎の謎に包まれたミステリアスな素性も次第に明らかにされていく…。  人付き合いは苦手で、飼い主がいない動物たちと暮らす万太郎。変わり者と周囲から見られているが、抜群の観察力や俊敏な身体能力を持つという役柄に坂本は「舞台に立たせていただくことが多いですが、いつかチャンスがあればドラマにも挑戦したいと思っておりました。そんなタイミングでしかも主演!」と久々の主演に意気込む。  さらに「私もプライベートで犬と猫と一緒に過ごしています。リラックスしながら撮影ができそうで楽しみです」と、自身の“動物愛”も披露。「スタッフ、キャストの皆さまと一丸となり視聴者の皆さまに楽しんでもらえるよう頑張っていきたいと思います」と制作陣も期待する新ヒーロー誕生を約束した。  玲子の部下の刑事役で中山優馬(28)、万太郎の勤務先の元院長役で正名僕蔵(51)らが共演する。 購読試読のご案内 プロ野球はもとより、メジャーリーグ、サッカー、格闘技のほかF1をはじめとするモータースポーツ情報がとくに充実。芸能情報や社会面ニュースにも定評あり。
