I was in contact with EA Help over at twitter. A rep called Bob helped me and we had a conversation that was 3 hours long.

He was really helpful and got all my progress back! There seemed to be several EA idConfused on my account which seems to play a part in the error. 

 

He was not sure what really happened, there seems to be some sync error between Steam and Origin which happened during the connection problems one week ago. 

 

If you have problems like this I recommend you to take contact with @EaHelp. 

 

Bob is Da MAN!

 

Thank you once again!

@m0xin 

 

Have you recently unlinked any accounts from your EA account?

This can result in data loss, reconnecting the account might bring the data back.

Hey @m0xin @j0k3rfive,

 

Thanks for the reports.

 

Have either of you updated your EA ID or nickname recently, whether through the app directly or on this account page

 

Or alternatively have you contacted in recently to have accounts combined or merged?

I have not made any changes to my account since june 2022. That was to cancel my Nintendo Online account. That is about it. I have linked Nintendo, PSN, Xbox Live and Steam and have not made any changes for months to years. Yesterday the account was Reset. All Cosmetics was gone. I have my achievements still and badges and level, which should tell EA/Respawn that I have played the game through the years. Seems to be some algorithm that have been wacked of? My gaming for this is frozen since I dont know if it ever will come back or If all is lost?!

 

That this can happen at all and that customer support states, "Sorry I cant help you, please file a Bug report" Have at the least made me both anxious and angry. Does EA dont have any backups of the profiles at all? 

 

Still hoping to get this fixed ofc.

 

EDIT: To clarify, all cosmetics, Banners, Legends, Weapon skins, Heirlooms etc that you need to unlock with cash/grind/Battlepass are Locked as would be expected in a new account. But I have levels and achiements and Badges still there, which indicate my 700+ hours playtime in the game...

Thank you for the added details @m0xin.

That's definitely highly unusual to say the least and we're looking to have this checked into further, but I don't have any other info currently.

@EA_Mako I have not made any changes recently, only thing i can think of is installing the EA app and trying to play there. But it wouldn't connect so i played on steam instead.

It was fine all the way until I couldn't connect on steam anymore, so I tried playing on the EA app and thats when I lost everything =(

I still have apex coins and stats... but no more cosmetics of legends.

Has this happened before?
Is it a patch we should be looking out for?
Do we make a ticket?
Should I stop playing until this is resolved? (maybe its easier to fix?)

Thanks

@TTV_Daddysnipes have had the exact same problem occur on the PSN platform. This isnt an isolated case it seems.
