Which Apex Legends map is better?

Apex Legends introduced map rotation at the beginning of April and promptly adjusted it to make Season 4 easier to grind. Kings Canyon and World’s Edge are now available at different times throughout the day, finally giving players the chance to enjoy their preferred map. The two regions offer very different environments, but which approach is better? Kings Canyon fan Emma and World’s Edge defender Phil met up to pitch their case.

Emma: Kings Canyon may be the older map, but it’s a great example of how a developer can strike gold the first time around. All of Kings Canyon’s points of interest feel as though they were developed to create one consistent arena. Spacing between each zone is minimal, so you never have to venture too far to find decent loot. This also means that your teammates are more likely to stay reasonably close by, which minimises the chances of you getting picked off individually. Having everything closer together also makes it easier to catch up with the circle if you’ve landed in a suboptimal spot; if I want to play a running simulator in a battle royale, I’ll stick to PUBG.

Phil: OK, yes, I’ll grant you that Kings Canyon is consistent. It feels like it could be a place, with its sandy bit and its swampy bit and its part-sandy-part-swampy bit. But consider this: consistency is boring. World’s Edge is bright and weird. It has a big meteor just there like it’s been plucked out of a Final Fantasy game. There’s lava everywhere, for reasons. It’s an amusement park; a collection of Sonic the Hedgehog zones stitched together with no rhyme or reason. I inherently just think that’s fun. It’s bigger, too, I’ll give you that, but I actually think that’s for the better. Yes, if you spread out you’re more likely to be picked off, but that’s not the map’s fault. The map is being generous: it’s saying, “look at all this loot that I have! I’m not like Kings Canyon with full zones containing nothing but level one armour and Mozambiques.” It’s on your team to safely gather its generous bounty.
