On Thursday, Respawn released update 1.1 for Apex Legends aimed to add some quality of life changes to game and minor bugs fixes. Unfortunately, the update rollout was met with an early bug report which was resetting player progression.
Until the issue has been resolved we recommend players do not buy or craft anything. We’ll continue to provide updates, along with an ETA, as information comes in.— Apex Legends (@PlayApex) April 3, 2019
Respawn released a statement on twitter asking players to not craft and make purchases on the market till the bug is squashed. Later they pulled servers down for maintenance to keep the damage to minimum.
Respawn has since then fixed the bug and the update is live on all platforms. In a post later on Reddit, Respawn explained what caused this issue, saying “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”. Since then the update is live and lost progression of players have been restored.
