Check official channels -

Your first port of call should be to check the games official social media channels. These are normally kept up to date on any issues or outages. So before you give up on the game, check the Apex Legends Twitter account for any additional information. It could be that the devs or EA Help team have identified the issue and is about to roll out a fix.

Check DownDetector -

When the team at Respawn or EA Help haven't been quick enough to acknowledge any issues it's also worth checking in with DownDetector.

This independent website tracks outages for a whole heap of services, from games to banks and services like Netflix. If there's a huge swell of complaints about a service, DownDector will more than likely have updates on the situation. It also displays a whole bunch of fellow users complaining about the service on Twitter and Facebook. At least that way you know it's not just you and other players who are experiencing issues. It won't necessarily fix the issue, but at least you'll know the issues are widespread and not isolated to just your connection.

Enable Twitter Alerts -

It's also advisable to have alerts set up for the Twitter account Apex Legends Status. Generally speaking, this account will keep you briefed on any ongoing issues with the game as they develop. Not to mention updates on when the service has stabilised and is working once again.
