Yesterday’s Apex Legends patch was a little bit of a large number. The official listing of modifications it launched have been comparatively minor, however a leaver penalty, which might introduce penalties for dropping from a game too early, wasn’t even within the patch notes. (Never thoughts that complete progress reset bug.) After gamers realised the penalty had been applied, Respawn disabled it, and there’s no indication of when or if it is going to come again.
“Internally, we have been working on and testing this feature but it wasn’t our intention or plan to have it go live with the update that went out today,” Respawn says on Reddit (by way of Dexerto). “There was a piece of script that was missing and caused the leaving match early penalty to be turned on when it shouldn’t be.”
If you left three matches early in the course of the transient time when the penalty was dwell, you’ll get a 5 minute timeout the place you could possibly now not be a part of one other game. Leaving early on this case additionally contains dropping from a match whereas ready to your teammates to respawn you.
The penalty was not applied in case your staff wasn’t full, nevertheless.
Since this penalty was nonetheless in testing when it went dwell, there’s no indication of whether or not or not that is how it will be applied within the remaining game. Respawn says “We don’t have an ETA for if or when this would come out for real.”
