No offical patch notes have been released just yet, but here are the new stuff resolved by Respawn Entertainment:
Note that this was announced on February 17 with the fixes and changes stretching out to February 19:
Heads up: The @PlayApex Anniversary Collection Event heirloom pack had a bug.
It unintentionally reset the “counter” that guarantees you get heirloom shards every 500 packs. Only people who opened the heirloom pack before 3pm PT on 2/10 were affected, as the bug was fixed.
We’re working on a hotfix to restore affected players’ “bad luck protection” counters to their proper count (including additional packs opened since the bug).
If the bug prevented you from getting rewarded on your 500th pack, you’ll receive a pack containing heirloom shards.
We’re also going to grant affected players 5 Apex Packs for their trouble. We’ll update when the fix has rolled out and we’ve confirmed that it’s working properly.
UPDATE: A fix has been rolled out for yesterday’s reported issues around the @PlayApex heirloom “bad luck protection” counter. Those affected have had their counters restored to the correct value and granted 5 Apex Packs for their trouble.
Also of note, over on the official Apex Legends Trello board, the latest “Resolved” issue is the item listed below, which was placed in the Resolved pile on February 12:
- Legend Banter VO is not playing as intended.
So far, that’s all we know for this update. Once Respawn releasees the official changelog, we’ll update the post. Same as always, if you spot any gampelay-related changes or fixes, let us know what you find down below.
Respawn has finally acknowledged today’s patch for Apex Legends. We’ve updated the post accordingly.
