Apex Legends version 1.1 bug resets player accounts to level 1

Apex Legends update version 1.1 bug account reset one progression

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.

Apex Legends Mobile beginner’s guide: 6 tips and tricks to get started
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.

Apex Legends Mobile isn’t a great fit for small screens
Promo art for Apex Legends Mobile shows different characters.

Apex Legends is one of those multiplayer games I love, but am terrible at. When I was invited to a press demo for the game’s limited-time Control mode earlier this year, I was thoroughly embarrassed as my peers routinely downed me with a headshot from across the map. I’ve always wanted to play it more than I do, but I never felt cut out for the twitchy world of PC players.

Apex Legends Mobile solves that issue for me, though it creates some new problems of its own in the process. The standalone mobile version of the battle royale hit more or less feels like a one-to-one adaptation of its bigger counterpart (the most notable difference is the number of pop-up notifications trying to nudge players to the shop). That means I can fully enjoy the shooter in a more casual portable setting, one free from the mouse and keyboard crowd.

Newcastle raises his shield in Apex Legends.

Apex Legends' latest season, Saviors, is around the corner and it's adding a new hero: Newcastle. During a press event, Respawn Entertainment shared new details about the character, including his support move set and dad-inspired design.

Newcastle has one of Apex Legends' most intriguing backstories to date. Newcastle is a Captain America-like superhero in the game's world who has tried and failed to qualify for the Apex Legends tournament time and time again. As it turns out, he's so desperate to enter it because he's in deep in debt. When a negotiation with his loan sharks turns violent, Newcastle's dad, who's related to Bangalore, decides to don the Newcastle mask and enter the battle royale in place of his son.
