Hacker attack on playlist stopped

Respawn: "fine, I'll do it myself"

Since the collection event for Revenant I have been having an issue on PC where:

My game takes around a minute to get to the lobby. I'm stuck on a black screen with an Apex logo in the bottom right. Once in the lobby, when I switch to ranked (or any other game mode) my game immediately freezes After 30 seconds to a minute, the game will unfreeze and the correct game type will show and my character will be frozen while the background moves still, this is promptly followed by a disconnect from the servers with a Code:Net or Code:Wheel error. I have to then reconnect to the servers for another 45 seconds to a minute and it will finally load me into my game mode where I can ready up.

This has the been the process I have to go through EVERY time I want to play Apex since I pretty much just play ranked.

PC Specs:

Ryzen 5800x RTX 3080 16GB RAM

I'm hardwired and the game is installed on an SSD. I made a separate post here with a video of my issue.

Me and my friend also have this issue. Since the Genesis event.

Anyone else having an issue where the BR options are whited out? I can only play areas or ranked

ID: h52314t

Yep, came to reddit to see if we were getting hacked again.

ID: h522c1z

I’m having problems with my battle royal being whited out and my games turning into black screens right now

ID: h523jt9


ID: h522dur

got the same thing, on top of that I just get a loop of "matchmaking, starting server" when trying to play arena.

ID: h522mqc

Wow, they really are desperate to force people to play Arenas, eh?

5 : Anonymous2021/07/13 17:14 ID: h522nuz

Genius move, let’s make sure they’re playing arenas by simply removing battle royale

ID: h524s09

"Sir, spending resources on the Arena mode is justified. Just look at the stats for 13 July 2021, 100% of our player base played Arenas!" ~ Apex board meeting, probably.

So when y'all gonna fix that 100% cpu load and 10mins loading screen a lot of us has since the genesis update

7 : Anonymous2021/07/13 21:09 ID: h52y9gi

Anyone else having issues with Apex ever since the Genesis update? It takes me like 10 mins to load only for it to give some error message before I try again and works just fine, also sometimes when I switch playlists my game just freezes and gives me an error

8 : Anonymous2021/07/13 17:11 ID: h5228r0

yet another flawless launch boyos

ID: h522ibo

"The store is working though" ~ Respawn, probably.

9 : Anonymous2021/07/13 17:56 ID: h528dwc

The most consistent thing about Respawn is releasing a new patch in a broken state for a few hours, every single time.

10 : Anonymous2021/07/13 17:28 ID: h524kct

The game is broken. I’m shocked

11 : Anonymous2021/07/13 17:12 ID: h522brh

Imagine an update that works when it's supposed to go online

ID: h522lkv

Respawn: "We dont do that here"

12 : Anonymous2021/07/13 17:17 ID: h522zaz

Out of any really popular game I've played, Apex has had the absolute worst servers.

ID: h523gkq

It’s up there... shame too because the movement is also up there.

13 : Anonymous2021/07/13 17:29 ID: h524qjd

I’ll give one thing to respawn. They are very consistent. 3 of the last 5 updates have been completely broken, 1 was taken over by a hacker and ring flares sucked.

It’s really hard to get excited for any new content when you have to wait for another update to fix the first one.

ID: h5260x6

Do you remember the S8 "Takeover" events? They were supposed to have like 5 in a rotation and 3/5 were pulled because they were completely broken lmao. Just awful.

ID: h52a4qf

Yep. Just like it took a whole ass day for season 9 to actually become Playable.

Like I understand not everything is gonna be perfect, mistakes happen, yada yada. But every update we’re expecting to be not working, and low and behold it doesn’t. Idk if the devs don’t care, or higher ups demand content they can’t make it time, or what. It’s a shitty reputation they are building that’s gonna lead to the death of a really good game.

ID: h5258db

They only release new content to get more money at this point. It's like a supermarket with crambling aisles but cashiers are still working.

ID: h529y3l

And Caustic is out the back in the warehouse thinking he's getting away with stealth farts.

How is the Sentinel still not fixed in Arenas is this just part of the game or wtf

Is Respawn just 1 guy with a monkey for assistance?

ID: h524h4t

Actually, Respawn is just 1 monkey with a guy for assistance.

ID: h524ugv

It's two monkeys who fight over a single banana while they run over a bunch of keyboards to write the code.

16 : Anonymous2021/07/13 17:23 ID: h523tr2

-Skulltown is a map, but not Overflow

-Abandon Penalties don’t work for arenas

-BR is LITERALLY unplayable

-Arenas can’t fill any teams to completion

Neat Event

How come the servers break but the store never breaks?

ID: h52mk52

Shop is unbreakable

Like diamonds

18 : Anonymous2021/07/13 17:21 ID: h523lzh

Man, this dev team can't put out a SINGLE update without major issues. Billion dollar company.

19 : Anonymous2021/07/13 17:40 ID: h5266ub

Do you guys not test anything before releasing? And how come everything except the fucking store breaks? Fix the damn game before coming out with more events and ugly reskins

20 : Anonymous2021/07/14 03:36 ID: h546rrp

This has been repeated billions upon billions of times but fuck it, I still want to throw my own vitriol to the fire.

Apex matchmaking is such utter garbage if you’re not playing with a trio party. Half my games always having missing teammates despite having “Fill Teammates” selected. Overwatch may be a “dead game” but it can still at least fill in fucking teams consistently.

If I’m playing Arenas and I have a missing teammate or someone who DCs later in the match, I should be able to leave with no penalty. PLEASE for the love of god make this a thing, Respawn…

21 : Anonymous2021/07/13 17:33 ID: h525867

It is honestly impressive how bad they are at deployments/QA.

22 : Anonymous2021/07/14 13:44 ID: h55j7ha

I don't like these events being arena focussed. Arenas are fundamentally broken right now without any meaningful skill based matchmaking or ranking system. If I'm lucky enough to actually have a teammate (or maybe even 2 if I'm SUPER lucky), there's a reasonable chance that at least one of us is significantly out of their depth. I've seen many levels <10 and it's pretty obvious that they're not smurfing.

Why can't we have events that let you play either mode rather than try to force a single one? The challenges are good because they incorporate both modes but the badges have been arena-only and the bars have been set at a significant height, especially given the issues raised above.

I love the concept of arenas but the execution hasn't been great.

23 : Anonymous2021/07/13 21:06 ID: h52xx2e

If you want us to play arenas fix the damn matchmaking cuz currently it's like: "oh yeah let's put lvl 10's against people who placed diamond last season, that will DEFINITELY make them think it's a great gamemode and they will have TONS of fun"

Battlefield waiting room

25 : Anonymous2021/07/14 12:30 ID: h55ba29

why the fuck are there so many afk players in Arenas? I'm on a 5 game losing streak because for 5 games in a row, I've had a teammate that is just afk the entire game. They aren't even disconnected, just sitting there with their hands down their pants.

I'm not sure how to implement this in a way it won't be abused, but there needs to be a mechanism where afk players don't ruin my winstreak, as it's beyond frustrating to get a high streak which is ruined by someone who is just standing there the whole round - something like backfilling with a new player (round wouldn't count as a loss for new player if they join late as compensation) or autoending the match on a draw if someone hasn't moved or bought anything for more than 1 round in a row

26 : Anonymous2021/07/14 10:11 ID: h5502dk

Does anybody else get 100% CPU usage all of a sudden that makes the game unplayable?

27 : Anonymous2021/07/14 09:01 ID: h54vhtl

If season 9 was a year in the calendar.. it'd be 2020. 🙁

28 : Anonymous2021/07/13 17:21 ID: h523n0e

sell the game to another company and stop embarrassing yourself

29 : Anonymous2021/07/13 17:29 ID: h524nfb

i swear to god, these guys don't have any inhouse testing, just deploy everything on the production and hope for the best

and then there's people actually defending them xDDDDDDDDD

30 : Anonymous2021/07/13 20:42 ID: h52upzm

I'm sorry but at this point they are just taking the piss. You can't drop content every week and the state of the game is like a beta test. Not even FIFA is that bad. And is even more sad when this is easily the best BR in the industry

31 : Anonymous2021/07/14 22:29 ID: h57h93k

Maybe fix it so we aren't getting put into uneven matches, Sucks to have one or no squadmate in my own or my enemies squad.
