In a major fumble by the folks at Respawn, a recent patch for Apex Legends reset all player progression back to level 1, and had players scrambling in confusion.
Many took to Reddit to express their concern and found others facing the same issue. However, Respawn was quick to respond and fixed the issue with another update shortly after. They also went on to explain what had happened, and how it would affect players:
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.
WHAT DID RESPAWN DO TO FIX IT?
Fortunately, your progress up until the update was still safe and sound. They shut down all live servers so they could remove players from the wrong place and roll up the correct servers with your progress. Once they confirmed internally that they had fixed the issue they started rolling out the right servers starting with Xbox and staggered the updates to PS4 and PC.
WHAT ABOUT YOUR PROGRESS?
Everything you’ve accomplished and bought in Apex up until the 1.1 Patch that went live at 10:00 PST today should be restored.
- Any in-game purchases and progress acquired during the time between 1.1 going live and the fix will be reverted – levels earned, items unlocked, packs opened, and spent currency. If you continued to play and didn’t patch then this will not affect you.
- Any currency purchased, spent or not, will be carried back over to their original account state. i.e. – if you bought $20 worth of coins, and spent $18, then you’ll will get $20 after the fix.
