Apex Legends players reported widespread server outages on May 19, unable to log-in to their account or get to the main screen – but have the issues been resolved by EA? Let’s take a look…

At roughly 10:00 AM PT / 1:00 PM ET on Tuesday, May 19, server issues reared their head again for Apex Legends, after a smaller outage earlier in the same month.

Gamers were reportedly receiving a number of error messages which appear to be linked, such as being unable to connect to EA servers, or being hit with error 100 code.

The server issues are impacting Apex Legends players from several regions.

The reports are happening sporadically throughout the world with most of the issues centralized in North America and the larger parts of Europe.

EA Servers down for players on May 19

Those who were hoping to hop on to some Battlefield V while Apex Legends was down would have been out of luck, too, as it appeared that EA servicesare also acting up.

Respawn or EA have yet to address the latest connection problems, though the influx of reports are bound to get their attention as more players are encountering the login issues.

Previously, EA was able to confirm that they were experiencing connectivity problems on May 5, and it seems like those problems have arisen once again.

EA’s services are reportedly being affected by problems as well.

The publisher and devs usually address severe problems in a timely manner to prevent a majority of players from experiencing any issues.

People experiencing problems with EA or Apex Legends servers should report it so the devs could have more feedback to work off of.

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.
