Oh damn, Respawn must be pulling a prank on me everyday then XD

Truuu, but in a normal every day scenario I usually only have to restart 2 times at absolute most and actually get into the game as a result :p

ID: gt0wpfz

2 times?? Sometimes I tried more then 3 times and still wouldn't load. I literally stop playing for this

ID: gt1b1x3

Yeah, first time I see weird squares on the screen, second try the server is lagged, third try there are giant flares on the screen, fourth try, it takes 3min to load and then you get put alone so you die miserably in a 1v3 and then when you finally manage to get a full squad it turns out they're kids who believe they're pros and go 1v3 so you then somehow manage and kill the enemies just for your teammates to leave anyways.

It's a feature so you get a sense of pride and accomplishment when you finally reach the lobby.

Yooooo thank god I’m seeing this, I thought my computer was fucked I just ran a program to de bloat it and then apex wouldn’t let me in I thought I’d fucked up

ID: gt08htn

Yeah something is a little off :p Restarted the game 3 times and waited for a pretty good while, thought I would at least make something fun out of it x)

No joke a couple months ago i had an infinite loading screen issue. The game just wouldnt load, you could wait for days lol they eventually fixed it like a month or so after. Lucky for you that wasnt the case

ID: gt1bvh5

I got this a couple times. No joke, I fixed it by unplugging my ps4 controller from the PC. A friend of mine has the same issue if he has his phone charging off his PC. Such a weird issue.

ID: gt0fbod

bro you got IN the launcher? we be dining on my finest china tonight.

ID: gt0nzbs

its just a infinite leading screen, search on YouTube how to fix it, i did the same and now its working good now

5 : Anonymous2021/04/01 09:15 ID: gt0fr4m

Just a tip - I was facing the same issue but after uninstalling the game and deleting all apex files and reinstalling helped me

ID: gt0tm9e

just deleting the game without reinstalling it fixed it for me

ID: gt0zf8t

I'll have to try this when I get home

ID: gt1du43

Sorry to tel you but this is an issue with respawns login servers not being able to handle the traffic, nothing to do with the actual installation of the game.

If you had just waited instead of reinstalling the game it would have had the exact same end result.

ID: gt0gl24

Hmm I see, didn't check the server status during that time tho as I wasn't too bothered about it and I was just guessing it was probably EA server stuff that pooped itself for the moment! Haven't checked the status now either nor tried starting the game but will do later!

Edit: Tried starting the game cause I got curious and no problems! Was just temporary server things as I guessed most likely!

ID: gt0xtuz

Yeah all the servers were overloaded they got 600+ reports for the servers last I checked

Okay I made a reddit post a while back about this, but you can fix the loading screen by unplugging a single usb during the loading sequence. After the game loads you can just plug it in again

ID: gt0hc3t

That sounds pretty interesting ngl xp tho the game works now! Was just temporary server poop probably :p

Are you using Steam by chance? I prefer it but had to switch back to Origin because of this, never had an issue since.

ID: gt0r3dd

I switched from Origin to steam on the mid S7 patch. The same patch that broke steam for the first time.

Because origin broke the update and I had to fully reinstall the game, decided it'd be easier to just do it on steam. Big sigh.

ID: gt0qy1u

Same here, switching back to Origin solved the issue

No the April fools joke will be the servers working for once

9 : Anonymous2021/04/01 09:47 ID: gt0i80d

try verifying game files on steam worked for me

10 : Anonymous2021/04/01 09:54 ID: gt0it4e

Appreciate the thought of people who gives advice about how to solve the loading issue! But at this time it seems to have only been a temporary server problem for my part as I can get into the game again! 🙂

Edit: Also wasn't too bothered about it so I just memed it :p Otherwise I would have tried to look it up! just mentioning it extra especially for those few who assume things and gets upset about the post 🙂

Apex servers are powered by a rat and a half running on an old hamster wheel

Ah yes, those sillies pulled this prank on me too :,-)

16 : Anonymous2021/04/01 16:25 ID: gt1o3d5

Yea, April fool's. Our shit is broken even when it's not April fool's.

Fix the servers please.

17 : Anonymous2021/04/01 11:36 ID: gt0rdg9

this shit happened like 4 times in 1 week

Can't wait to get pranked by having my shots not register

20 : Anonymous2021/04/01 13:40 ID: gt131p5

I couldn’t even play yestermorning. Spent 7 minutes on the black load screen. Finally made it to the main menu. Clicked continue and took me straight back to that load screen for another 5 mins. Restarted my Xbox and apex and still couldn’t make it past the main menu. They broke something and need to fix it.

I've just had weird as fuck "sluggishness" in Apex for few days. It's like one of those "swimming under water" things, where my mouse acts like it's on some really low acceleration, when it's actually not. And crouch jumps get fucked, because there's tiny bit of fps/server lag. Don't even know which.

Then again, it's made me go all Wingman, since my spray control has gone to hell with the sluggishness, but one shot flicking into enemies still works somewhat. I do love my Wingman training though. Nothing more satisfying than breaking armo

a kill with that fucker.

Ok real funny guys... It's been 6 hours now jokes over...

Still waiting on them to fix the wraith bug. And the Gibby health

25 : Anonymous2021/04/01 16:18 ID: gt1n7wz

I have to verify game files like every other day at the mo to counter this. could be worse, but it is a ball ache.

26 : Anonymous2021/04/01 16:33 ID: gt1p5d9

Same... started 2 games, both game me a code leaf or code net. Now I’m on loading page wanting to try a p2020 on a zip and no dice 🙁 been waiting 15 minutes 🙁

It feels unplayable on console rn i’m trying to play ranked but i can’t because i keep getting thrown to the menu screen

28 : Anonymous2021/04/01 18:48 ID: gt2768q

I had a really good match with my friend but I couldn’t use guns so I had to run around and punch ppl and we lost. Red evo, legendary bag and knockdown

29 : Anonymous2021/04/01 20:58 ID: gt2nyp9

Guys, I found a fix. Log in to Origin and change your status from invisible to visible. It logged me in immediately.

30 : Anonymous2021/04/01 21:07 ID: gt2p3la

Have you guys tried the new April fools solo ranked?! I’ve been playing all day

31 : Anonymous2021/04/01 21:10 ID: gt2phg0

I got fed up with it and changed from steam to origin. Once the steam issue gets fixed i may switch back over to it seeing as their sales are different.

They got me good.
