Respawn recently announced their latest event called the “September Soiree” which is exactly the same as the original Grand Soirée arcade event that featured a lot of fan-favorite game modes.

Dummies Big Day was one of the most popular LTM in Apex Legends back in the original arcade event. As a result, Respawn announced Dummies Big Day to be the first LTM(limited-time mode) in the September Soiree event followed by different LTMs each Tuesday. However, after only a couple of hours of its official release, it was obvious that something was not right.

Basically, if a player stays AFK during the character selection menu, the game apparently crashes. As right now the devs are still not sure the exact reason behind this behavior, they decided to pause the party until further notice.

Respawn pauses the party:

Furthermore, Respawn just assured its player base that they are currently working on a fix and will follow through with a patch as soon as possible. Just like the previous Soirée arcade event, there will be new fan-favorite LTM game modes rotating every Tuesday.

With the current delay, it is still not clear whether or not Respawn will delay all the other future game modes that are supposed to take place during this month-long arcade event. Respawn should update players with a fix fairly soon.
