October 28th, 2019

The Bois™ sit down for a very pleasant and informative interivew with Emmerlynn, owner and manager of the official Apex Legends Subreddit and Discord. r/ApexLegends clocks in with over 800k subs and the Discord is a hair from 250k. We discuss the Apex community in general, how /r/ApexLegends was born, the challenges of managing such a large community, and the relationship between the moderating staff and the devs at Respawn.

We also spend some time talking about what qualifies someone to be at the helm of such large communities, answer a few questions from the community, and even get a bit emotional about the people who make it all happen.
