Which part of the map or menu were you in? If you don't remember the exact name, please describe the area or what you were trying to do in the menu. The splash art -> map transition right before champion selection
What were you doing when the issue occurred? E.g. respawning a squad mate at a beacon, using an ability, a squad mate left the game. Nothing, waiting for the match to start
Did your squad mates also experience the issue? No
How many matches had you played in a row before the issue occurred? 9-10
When did this happen? (dd.mm.yy hh:mm) 15.09.23 9:16 PST
How often does the bug occur? Rarely (0% - 9%)
How severe is your issue? Major impacts to gameplay
What happens when the bug occurs? The match seems to have some audio, but the screen is static. Waiting for something to resolve does not appear to help, as the match already starts but from my POV I'm still not even at champion selection. Alt-tabbing results in Apex being unable to "return" at all to any kind of good state, it then is an unresponsive black screen. Attempting to restart the game by closing the application results in a disconnect code of snake on return. This during a ranked game results in -150 LP and a ~10 minute timeout without any real way to mitigate that. Interestingly, from my friends POV it was appearing as if I was not in the squad during character selection, but did show me in the champion screen (since we were the prior champs), and did not show me in the squad in the dropship. Not as DCed but as just not being present at all in the match.
What should be happening instead? I should be just able to choose a champ, and play an apex match normally upon loading.
Steps: How can we find the bug ourselves? I'm not sure, its intermittent and I don't have a good read on when it happens as to possible triggers/causes.
No additional information here.

@toasty_morningHappens exactly the same way, I should not be punished for game crashing. IDK what are the devs doing without even addressing the issue, has been like that since the beginning of the season.
Besides that the other people get matched just as 2, and if killed, they lose LP as well.
@Apex either fix your issue, or stop removing the points. Don't punish people for trying to play.

Yesterday, I lost 150 LP because of that freeze. It happens every 3 hours of playing Apex. To avoid it, just restart Apex every 2 hours until EA fixes this annoying issue.

Quick bump with another thread where others are also having the same issue
This issue definitely needs to be looked at, top priority. This has been going on for several weeks already and it's not isolated.
