Hi @TTV_ReiVesta,

This is an issue that we're currently tracking, and the Apex Legends team is looking into it. In the meantime there's a workaround that should help.

If you alt-tab after you choose your Legend and leave the game minimized until everyone is on the dropship, you should be able to bring the game back up afterward and play the round normally.

Thanks for bearing with us while this is under investigation.
