Apex Legends version 1.1 bug resets player accounts to level 1

A Respawn Entertainment community manager announced that the Apex Legends development team is shutting down servers to address a known issue that resets player accounts to level one.

Shared via Reddit, the most recent update from the Apex Legends team is that players are encouraged not to buy or craft anything in the game until the issue is resolved. This problem sprung up after Apex Legends was updated to version 1.1 and the team has also labeled this as a known issue in the patch notes.

Having accounts reset back to level one means that players lost their weapon cosmetics, Legend skins, and potentially the progress made through the recently released Apex Legends season one battle pass. The Respawn Entertainment team has started turning off servers so players will not be able to engage in matches for the time being.

Apex Legends version 1.1 adds in the much-needed option to create a party with the last squad that you played a match with. It’s not as seamless as dumping the team into a party immediately after the match, but icons in the lobby can be used to invite the other two players to your squad.

So can anyone help me? I just updated my @PlayApex and lost ALL my progress and all my packs I opened?! Can anyone at @Respawn ? Lost EVERYTHING!

Beyond that addition, additional anti-cheat measures were added, a mute button can be found during the match intro and Legend selection, and Respawn added a category to the Report Player option on PC. Now, players can select “Cheat” or “Other” as the meaning for the report. PC players will also get informative messages if their Apex Legends games happen to crash. These will tell a player if the crash was the result of running out of memory or due to CPU errors. This will allow savvy PC players to potentially adjust their PC for better performance, or more accurately report crashes to the Respawn Entertainment development team.

With hope, the Apex Legends account reset error will not only be fixed in the near future, but affected players will have their progress restored along with all of the cosmetics they have earned. Respawn is working to give players an ETA on a fix for the problem.

The best legends in Apex Legends Mobile
A party of Legends prepares for battle.

Taking elements from hero shooters, Apex Legends introduced a cast of unique characters that filled different roles, with their own set of skills to make your knowledge of the roster and team compositions just as much a factor as your ability to pop heads. Apex Legends Mobile starts off with a smaller starting roster of Legends than the main title, but it's just as complex a battle royale.

However, just like in any shooter where each character has their own suite of abilities and situational strengths and weaknesses, nothing can be perfectly balanced. Some Legends, intentionally or not, are just plain better than others. Looking at every Legend in Apex Legends Mobile so far, assuming you're playing in a squad, we've come up with what are the top-tier Legends in the game.

The best weapons in Apex Legends Mobile
A party of Legends prepares for battle.

It may be the little brother to the console and PC versions, but Apex Legends Mobile is just as action packed and skill dependent as the best battle royale games out there. It retains all the core features that made the original so special in a genre that was getting flooded with copycats thanks to a smart blending of unique Legends, squad-focused matches, and the fast and fluid gameplay. While your chosen Legend is a key component to playing, the real battles almost always come down to who has the best gun and skill to use it.

Apex Legends Mobile doesn't hold back in terms of the weapons it offers. All of them will be familiar to fans who have poured hours into the original Apex Legends, but since this isn't just a straight up port of that game, not all guns will be as useful, or as bad, as they once were. Of course, balance changes will be a thing in Apex Legends Mobile, but for right now, these are the best weapons in the game you should seek out when looting.

A Legend escapes and explosion.

Unlike other mobile versions of popular battle royale games, such as PUBG: Mobile and Fortnite, Apex Legends Mobile is not just a straight port of the original game onto your mobile device. This game was built from the ground up for smartphones. While it's similar to the base game, the differences here are substantial enough to make even the most experienced Legends stumble a bit when sliding into this portable battle royale experience.

You will need to get a handle on more than just the new controls when acclimating to Apex Legends Mobile, and if it's your first time getting a chance to experience this free-to-play, class-based take on the battle royale genre, then you have even more onboarding needed before you can call yourself a true Legend.
