Apex Legends pros Ace & Mohr left furious after bizarre “invincible” bug

NRG’s Apex Legends pro squad of Brandon ‘Ace’ Winn, Marshall ‘Mohr’ Mohr, and Joseph ‘Frexs’ Sanchez were stunned after coming across a series of bugs that ultimately led to a bizarre ‘invincibility’ glitch.

The competitive teams are all preparing for the start of 2020’s Apex Legends Global Series, and NRG have a bit more grinding to do to refine their play with newcomer Frexs after the sudden retirement of Colby ‘dizzy’ Meadows.

But practice was cut short in a match of the Apex Games after Mohr was wedged in the corner of the room. He had taken a Wraith Portal back from looting, but it seems like the character model got irreversibly stuck on his way back.

Respawn EntertainmentPlayers encounter bugs in Apex Legends a lot, but those glitches get even more crucial in competitive settings.

A tried-and-true method for stuck battle royale players has been to knock yourself down and relying on a teammate to pick you back up, but that didn’t work either.

Mohr was taken aback by the glitch since his Gibraltar wasn’t bleeding out, as intended in the game.

So not only was he cemented in place in the corner, he couldn’t get revived from his squadmates, and was invincible to the effects of bleeding out.

Soon after, the team realized that Mohr’s character could actually die; though that was little consolation since the final circles didn’t have a Respawn Beacon in it.

The trifecta of bad tidings meant that a favorable game quickly turned into a nightmare scenario since even if he had been successfully killed, there wasn’t a chance to get back to a healthy three-man squad.

Scrimming against some of the best teams in the Apex landscape, the glitches made it hard for NRG to practice their mid-late game approach in the match.

After letting their botched situation sink in, Mohr was astonished of the bug, quipping that Apex really was “esports ready.”

The critique should be noted though, since Apex players have a long list of game-breaking or unfathomable bugs appear in their matches that would be detrimental in an official competitive match.

With the headlining Global Series kicking off later in 2020, it’ll be interesting to see what actions Respawn takes to make sure the game runs smoothly for the league.

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.
