​The ‘Apex Legends’ Patch That Wiped Saves Has Been Fixed

​The ‘Apex Legends’ Patch That Wiped Saves Has Been Fixed

Yesterday's Apex Legends Patch, 1.1, brought with it quality of life improvements but also appeared to wipe some players progress, sending them all the way back to zero kills.

What the patch was supposed to do was make it easy to join up with teammates from your last-played match and some new anti-cheating measures. However, as well as those changes, as Respawn explains on Reddit, "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".

When Respawn worked out what was happening, it shut down the live servers, so players playing in the wrong place would be shifted onto the right servers. It also meant that players weren't progressing characters in servers that weren't keeping track of their experience.

Importantly, Respawn has said that "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."
