The new Apex Legends Club feature is having some serious problems — players are reporting that they're being removed from their Club with no explanation, putting a serious damper on the holiday season.

Apex Legends has just kicked off its "Holo-Day Bash" event, bringing back the Winter Express along with some cool new changes to mix up the gameplay. Some players are reporting issues with connecting to this limited-time event — an unfortunate norm for the launch of many special events in modern games — but a far bigger problem has emerged: players are randomly being removed from their Apex Legends Club with no explanation.

"Hey, Legends! We're actively investigating issues Club members are experiencing with being mysteriously removed from their club, regardless of their rank," read a tweet from Chad "Shishka" Armstrong, a designer at Apex Legends developer Respawn Entertainment. "If you've experienced this, please send me a DM with your username, the platform you play on, and the name of your club!"

"Clubs" are a new feature recently added to the game which allows players to join a social group — essentially, this is a clan system that's been added to the game. These Clubs allow players to coordinate matches, earn special Club-wide badges, and communicate with one another outside of matches.

 
 

Several replies to the tweet and tweets from other players note that one or more members of a Club have found themselves mysteriously removed. No actions were reportedly taken by the Club to remove these players — it seems to be happening without any underlying cause, as far as anyone can tell.

What to Do if You're Removed From Your Apex Legends Club

There's good news if you've found yourself removed from your Apex Legends Club — Respawn Entertainment is currently investigating the issue. More importantly, it appears that someone may have discovered a fix that's worth trying.

"It happened to two of my members of Fireteam BnB," read a tweet from @Aeriqui responding to Chad Armstrong's announcement. "They were both able to fix it after relogging about 3-5 times."

If you find yourself having this issue, your best bet may be to attempt to relog a few times until it sorts itself out. This may only be a temporary measure, though — this situation is still developing and the underlying nature of the bug doesn't appear to have been discovered just yet.

Hopefully, Respawn Entertainment will have a fix for players soon. In the meantime, you can play Apex Legends for free on PC, PS4, and Xbox One via its official website.

I've had a controller in my hand since I was 4 and I haven't stopped gaming since. CCGs, Tabletop Games, Pen & Paper RPGs - I've tried a whole bunch of stuff over the years and I'm always looking to try more!
