A podcast dedicated to Apex Legends, its development, and the community!
Dropping Spicy aims to look deeper into the development process and life cycle of Apex Legends, compared to other titles in the Battle Royale genre, with special emphasis on dissecting business decisions, patch and balance changes, and our own take on the development roadmap based on our experience with the gaming industry that you won't find in other Apex podcasts. Pepper that with bits of low level strategy, and a focus on community feedback and content, and you've got an Apex Legends podcast unlike any other currently on the web.
We introduce our new temporary cohost, Kurabara, discuss glitches, botched officiation, and outright cheating in the Preseason Invitational, & close things out with new datamined info about Crypto!
This week, Kinder and Refused talk about the woes of adult life, a host of fresh, new patch and balance notes, along with some LONG awaited fixes, and the all new Voidwalker event!
We go completely off the rails, this episode, while discussing 2nd ring damage, and whether it's too much, datamined leaks about new hero Rampart, and make a very important announcement about the show
Kinder, Refused and Geo talk the new Iron Crown event, & a seriously big "PR no-no", involving one of the Respawn devs, community manager Jay Frechette, and the cesspool of the internet, Reddit!
Kinder and Geo talk about the EA earnings call, some highly interesting comments by EA higher-ups in regards to Apex, developer updates, and a confirmed event, coming in the next few weeks!!
Kinder and Refused breakdown the official Apex Dev Tracker, the 7/16 patch, and go off-the-rails talking lore, and datamining, and finish things up, discussing how much we hate training mode!
Kinder, Geo, and Refused talk Season 2 patch highlights, detail how the ranked ladder and RP system works, and we learn how 2 Caustic, with Kinder!

We talk about the Flyers that have invaded King's Canyon, and speculate WILDLY on what it could mean! After that, we discuss the confirmed changes to gameplay and balance, with the new season, and finish off, with Geo's Spicy Strat of the Week™ and some Spicy community responses!
Dropping Spicy introduces the newest member of the Spicy Bois team, Refused! Join da bois, as we discuss the coming additions to Apex Legends, including Wattson, the L-Star gold weapon, ranked mode, "giant space-cows" and more!
The Spicy Bois talk Apex patch 1.2, the Legendary Hunt event, and all the fun (and not so fun) changes that came along with it! Is Respawn messing up, or are they justified in making changes and fixing bugs that have become integral to the pro meta?
Da bois talk performance update 1.1.3, and why Respawn deserves more credit than they've been getting, as well as the problem with Mirage, some SPICY™ strats, and some interesting community proposed solutions to problems within the game.
