Respawn Releases Fix for Apex Legends 1.1 Update Bug That Wiped Player Progress

A progression wiping bug appeared in Apex Legends as part of update 1.1 but has thankfully been fixed by Respawn in a quick turnaround.

Respawn Entertainment has released a fix for a bug that appeared in the Apex Legends 1.1 update that was causing some to lose their progress in-game.

The explanation for this problem came from Respawn in a Reddit post on r/apexlegends that stated,

When the 1.1 update went live, players were unintentionally moved to the wrong servers that didn’t have their persistence and this caused players accounts to appear reset with all progression lost.

In order to address this all live servers were shut down temporarily to place players in the correct server beginning with Xbox and “staggered the updates to PS4 and PC.” Anything earned up until the 1.1 patch will be restored. However, anything you may have purchased or earned inbetween the time 1.1 went live and the fix will not carry over. Any in-game currency you may have purchased will be reverted, so those who bought $20 worth of coins and spent a few bucks will get them back though obviously the things you purchased with them will not still be there. Sorry if you ended up lucking out and getting a legendary skin in an Apex pack!

Patch 1.1 is the first big update since the dropping of the Season 1 Battle Pass for Apex Legends and introduces some nice new options. After completing a match with a great squad you will have the option to invite them to your squad from the main menu screen. This is great since often times random teams end up being some of the best matches I’ve had in Apex Legends. If you don’t want to be handling invites from others though you can disable allowing invites from the last squad in the Friends menu. Some smaller things include a mute button during intro and Legend selection sequences, reporting a player on PC lets you pick between whether its because they were cheating or something else, some technical support for PC crashes, and Octane’s Jump Pad will no longer effect players using Into the Void, which is unfortunate since I didn’t’ know about that before and would have been fun to see/experience.

Respawn tweeted around 10:30 AM Pacific that they were aware of the issues with progression being lost and released the reddit update about four hours later. On Twitter Respawn has also acknowledged that a penalty for leaving a match early was not intended and has been disabled on all platforms. Presumably this was a penalty against those who quit out as soon as they get downed during a match, something I frequently do when I know we’re about to get wiped after landing on the supply ship or location after five other squads have already made it there. Another Reddit post claims to have gotten a legendary skin for the L-Star, another energy weapon from Titanfall 2.
