How often does the bug occur? Rarely (0% - 9%)
How severe is your issue? Major impacts to gameplay
What happens when the bug occurs? After the game finished, I got 0 bonus EXP for caustic (bonus battlepass xp). When I checked my total bonus xp for caustic in the battlepass screen, it was at 25,000/50,000... It was at 33,000 / 50,000 before this bug occured.
What should be happening instead? I should have got bonus exp for caustic and my caustic bonus exp should be higher than 33k right now but it reset to 25k
Steps: How can we find the bug ourselves? I'm not sure if this was related, but 1-2 games before this problem I minimized and re-opened the game a lot of times as I was trying to restart my wechat voice chat. My game stop responded and I had to force close the game. Then I played 1-2 more matches after that and ran into this bug.
After finishing a game as Caustic, I noticed I got 0 bonus EXP which is weird considering the bonus EXP for characters just reset today and I was only at 33k / 50k last time I checked a game or two before. I decided to check the battlepass exp sheet and realized that not only did I get 0 bonus xp for the match I just played but my caustic exp reset from 33k+ to 25k..
@jmido8 Thank you for the detailed post. It sounds like there was a desync/issue with the next wave of Legend XP and the UI updated before the XP was actually available.
Are your other characters' bonus XP gains normal?
The other characters are normal and didn't get reset. I finally earned back all the XP on caustic and was able to get to 50k without a problem.
