A tweet from
says that a fix is now in place to protect Apex Legends
from the denial-of-service attacks it has
. The surprising
solution to external game disruption is internal game disruption. A
indicates in this can result in throwing the baby out with the bathwater as
entire matches may be voided:
We've just shipped an update to address
denial-of-service attacks on @playapex.
Now, when we detect an attack, all players will be booted from the game and
granted loss forgiveness. The idea is to deny advantages to attackers and
protect victims of those attacks from RP losses.
In some cases, this change will cause the results from matches to be entirely
voided: No stats tracked, RP gained or loss, etc.
More updates to deal with these sorts of attacks are on the way.
We'll keep you updated.
