@hayhor When cross-progression is announced(assumption), these same people will start whining about how their existing accounts weren't merged.

@DreamStare07 If I have an account on xbox and one on pc, why wouldn't I want them merged? They are genuine accounts!

@OldTreeCreeper Well for starters, you will have gained extra apex packs which you get by leveling up and not to mention the rewards that you get from those packs. The only solution is to keep the progress from one of the accounts with the highest levels. And you have double the chance of pulling a heirloom since they are two different accounts.

Will cross-play be opt-in, or mandatory? Asking for a friend.

Me. I'm the friend.

Hey I play Xbox and have been waiting for crossplay but it turns out there is no cross save for my pc so I was wondering if there will be keyboard and mouse support on console now because they can match make me against othe m+k players if I have that plugged in (like fortnite)

I'm fully okay with just picking one platform to save and completely rewrite the other

@DreamStare07 that is true, 

 

but if  I had 2 accounts I would have earned all those packs, I would have had to put the time in playing to get them. I would still have them as I would have the 2 accounts amyways  so I don't see it as a problem.

@OldTreeCreeper After reaching 500, you still put the time in but you don't earn any packs. Anything more than 199 packs is unfair. Having the same packs in two accounts vs having them together in one account is completely different.

@DreamStare07 the items in both accounts are already owned, either bought or earned, the only unfairness I can see is that if the combined accounts also combined pack totals towards a heirloom. So I would only allow a single account with the most pack total to go forward as the new combined account pack total, and not combine the 2 accounts pack totals.

 

Afaik there is no hard and fast rule from respawn to limit the number of accounts a person can have. So this process may involve more than 2 accounts.

@EA_David How is crossplay going to work for ranked? Is that still going to be segregated?
