Apex Legends Leaver Penalty Removed, Will Return

Respawn has commented on the early leaver penalty implemented in the recent 1.1 patch saying it was unintentionally implemented and has been removed. Though you it will be introduced at a later time.

So internally, we have been working on and testing this feature but it wasn't our intention or plan to have it go live with the update that went out today. There was a piece of script that was missing and caused the leaving match early penalty to be turned on when it shouldn't be. That's why it wasn't in the patch notes. We updated the script, tested with QA and it's now disabled for all platforms. We don't have an ETA for if or when this would come out for real. Apologies for the confusion.
