We have all seen that new updates can bring game breaking bugs, and the newest update to hit Apex Legends brought some bugs of its own. The latest update to hit the Apex Legends servers is numbered 1.1 and it apparently brought with it some new things to the game, with some fixes and secret anti-cheat improvements, but most importantly it has brought the much requested ability to reconnect to the random players of the previous match played. But there was some bad news along with the good as well and with the new update some players saw their accounts being reset, and Respawn Entertainment requested people to not craft and make new weapons until this is fixed.

The problem has since been fixed by the devs who claimed that the data was apparently move to a different server which caused this account resetting issue. Lost progression has now been restored be moving the data back to the original servers. “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,” Respawn Entertainment said.

“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.”
