I can’t wait. I have heirloom shards sitting on my Xbox account that I’m dying to move over to PC
Just in case you don't know, you will have to choose between one of your accounts, you can't merge them.
Yea I’m aware. I knew going into PC that I would** eventually abandon the account or use it as an alt.
So your shards are forever tied to that Xbox account.
Not if I linked my Xbox account to a brand new PC account.
Yea I'm currently still sitting and waiting to do this myself. Which makes this game discouraging to play on pc atm.
Where was this said?
that's how it works for every other game that supports cross progression, so it's a safe assumption
no you get to keep everything you have on fortnite and rocket league i believe
Then cross progression doesn't really matter, IMO. There's a lot of people who have played on Xbox, or switch to PS5 for next gen or PC and are going to lose a ton of progression. If I can't get that back, then I don't care. It's pointless. I'm not actively switching between different versions, and I suspect a lot of people are in the same boat.
Why is it so hard for companies to just merge then and get it over with
Money. Why would they give you "free" Heirloom shards, skin, etc. Pay double or get lost.
But they aren't free, they are earned?
Youre missing the point, EA wants every single penny you got in your bank account. Why do you think cross progression still isn't a think after 3 years
You're missing my point. They aren't just free, they were earned playing under EA's rules.
That is not how cross progression mergers has generally worked in my experience, so I think that's likely a bad rumor. So you're saying all the BP skins (which can't be replaced) and earned skins I have on PS4 are permanently lost so they can make more money? It's a massive FU if that's the direction they go. It's not about penny pinching. Destiny, RL all combined earned items.
Apex is quite a bit diffrent then that. If they were merging then u could just farm the first level up pack until you get an heirloom from it and then merge accounts. A level 500 can't do that as there is a cap on the amount of apex packs you can earn
That's fine, but to lose everything isn't fair, especially Battle Pass stuff. That has little bearing on packs and heirlooms. It's not opened in a pack, it's paid for and unlocked with time.
I think someone merging heirloom and putting in hundreds of hours is exactly the point. It also is done ONCE. You can't just farm up and add account after account. It's merged once and done.
Honestly EA is one of the worst companies out there in terms of everything. Their greed is only outclassed by how bad their support is. Good luck getting any actual help from EA unless you make a post on some social media page and it gains traction and suddenly they can actually respond to you
Yup its just greed then they should be obvious about it and say it
This isn't fact.
Imagine it took 3 years to "choose account" lmfao.
We're talking about Respawn there.
Joke aside, merging accounts will never happen for one simple reason: lootboxes. There is **no way** they'll let you get easy lootboxes by playing on PC, PlayStation, Xbox and Switch then merging all accounts. You could get hundreds of free "bonus" lootboxes just by doing that.
pardon me, feel free to ignore this, but couldn't they do what fortnite did with merge and only let you merge accounts once and if you could prove you own both accounts?
I don't really see how it would change anything about the issue I mentionned. You could still get many lootboxes for "free".
Nothing yet. I hope it comes soon too, because I currently play on the Switch, but I don’t want to lose my progress if I ever get another console.
So far no leaks at as far as I know just a tweet from a leaker saying that supposedly the accounts will merge but not cosmetics like skin, weapons skins, etc. However there are people saying that its probably a fake leak well have to wait for season 13 launch
It would be sick to cross platform from Xbox x to PS5 i have both but the party chat is where it's at
A developer said this year , maybe around October.
Follow @biast12 on twitter. Most recently he said it sounds like its coming during the middle or end of next season. Im in the same boat as you. Really like this game but 60fps is dog crap and the Series X "upgrade" gave me no hope for the 120fps update on console.
Specifically he said the rumor is it will be like the "Ps5/series x upgrade" in that it will come out of nowhere being announced the day before and that it will also be as disappointing as the console update(the way it didnt have 120fps) in that it will not allow account merging.
Biast12 has like 95% of the apex community blocked on twitter. Never had any interaction with him and I’m blocked lol
Ok? Dont really care about the drama just trying to answer OP's question
I’m saying how is he suppose to follow him when he blocks everyone.
Hopefully it’s S13 launch (may 10) or reasonably s13 split 2
If we’re really unlucky it’ll be s14
at this point dont get your hopes up
Lol the jump from switch to pc will be fun. Preds with daily 20 bombs getting their arses kicked by gold players :D
I feel like you're over estimating your skill
no and the downvotes just underline my argument
Well you do you, can't wait to loot your deathbox
sure buddy :D maybe ur argument fits you more
Yh good luck the Preds on PC are built different 😛😂😂
Yeah in terms of how bad they are lmao
Um I'm a diamond player on console and switched to pc and just played without items and got masters. Granted this season it's like really easy to get masters but like you're insane if you think preds are losing to golds. There are quite a bit of pros who started on console and switch to pc and are pros now
