Apex Legends players are calling for the return of the classic ‘Kings Canyon’ map after developers Respawn Entertainment removed it from the game for the start of Season 3: Meltdown.

Many Apex Legends players have been enjoying the change to the new World’s Edge map that was released in Season 3.

However, there are also many fans who would like to see the return of the arena they grew to love since the game first launched on February 4, 2019.

Players are calling for the return of Kings Canyon in Season 4.

During the early stages of Season 3, players were able to return to Kings Canyon for a limited time in the Shadowfall LTM, but now they want the iconic map to return for good.

As Season 3 is starting to come to a close, one Reddit user u/jdsexy called for the return of the arena in Season 4 and received overwhelming support from others in the community.

“Season ends in 30 days. Let’s let the devs know how bad we want KC back; at least as an option,” the player expressed, asking to have a choice of maps in-game, “I don’t mind World’s Edge, but I want to be able to choose which map I want to play.”

Season ends in 30 days. Lets let the devs know how bad we want KC back; at least as an option. I don’t mind World’s Edge, but I want to be able to choose which map I want to play. I believe the game has a large enough player base for this. Who’s with me? from apexlegends

Although many players seem to be eager to see the classic arena return, some still remained hesitant about the potential change and pointed out that the player base would be divided if players were given a choice of maps, suggesting a random queue playlist instead.

After Kings Canyon was initially removed from Apex Legends, Respawn developer Drew McCoy revealed that there was a possibility that Kings Canyon could make its return if enough players called for it.

“It doesn’t mean that Kings Canyon is gone forever though, at launch it’s going to be World’s Edge only,” McCoy explained, “then based on feedback from players, and the data we can get, we have a lot of different levers we can pull to see what we can do about reintroducing Kings Canyon.”

It is unknown yet what Respawn has planned for the upcoming Season 4, which kicks off on the one-year anniversary of the game on February 4, although fans won’t have to wait too much longer to find out.

Apex Legends dev confirms fix coming for frustrating Season 7 Clubs bug

The Apex Legends community has been encountering a bizarre bug that’s randomly kicking people out of their Club, even if they were the one to create the group in the first place – and Respawn is on the case.

The hyped Season 7 feature finally let Apex players initiate randos into recurring squadmates by inviting them into the social hub for friends. This was integrated for the purposes of growing communities and making teams easier to fill.

But now, some Club creators are getting kicked out of their own group and even finding that the guilds they made are getting deactivated with little explanation to account for.

While Clubs can get instantly deleted if they’re found with inappropriate names or the like, players have been reporting no such infractions while still getting ousted from their org.

Got removed from my own club that i created? my friend who is admin was not even online in the past few hours. and cant find any club if i click find club. Other clubs got deleted aswell? from apexlegends

“My club was up since Season 7 dropped,” user ‘IIIOxygenRSC’ wrote. “No offensive name or tag, no offensive text chat, usernames or anything. Logged onto apex today with a notification that said my club had been deleted by club admins. Anyone else or any idea why?”

It’s been happening more to different people, prompting Respawn Entertainment to take a closer look at what could be causing the problematic trend.

Clubs Designer at Respawn, Chad Armstrong gave a little comfort to people who’ve been dealing with the glitch: “Thanks for letting me know. We’re looking into this now.”

Now that the developers are on the case, it could soon lead to a meaningful fix to why people are getting met with a random ‘Exited Club’ notification as soon as they log into the game.

“Several players are reporting that they were removed from their club by the admins, even if THEY were the admins,” The Dot’s Pedro Peres said. “This is probably a major bug with Apex and I know Respawn will push out a fix for it ASAP.”

Though his incident was quickly resolved, more players have been wondering if that would be the case with them as well.

The Apex devs could be working on a speedy fix for Clubs to make sure their new Season 7 feature is working without a hitch.
