Apex Legends experiencing server issues once again

On January 17, 2023, players took to social media platforms like Reddit and Twitter to check to see if other members of the community were experiencing server issues.

Multiple threads on the Apex Legends subreddit have gained traction as fans began to share their frustrations with the ongoing connectivity problems.

“Stuck on matchmaking for 8 minutes…just me?” asked one fan, whose post gained nearly 200 comments from other players who shared their experience. “Same here on PS5. Just stuck on “matchmaking” for ages and nothing is happening. Now we can’t even have a rank split without issues smh…”
