[Apex Legends] Return player UID in events

Related Games: Apex Legends

  • Feature Description:
    For each event returning a player name, also include the player UID. Since the game released on Steam, player names are no longer unique. That makes it almost impossible to query a Steam player name through the game API which only allows either UIDs or Origin names. Being able to use the player UID would solve this problem, as any feature requiring external API calls for a player are not possible to implement at the moment.

  • impact for my app: [low, mid, high, show-stopper].
    High

  • What is your current pain point?
    There is currently no way of getting the player UID instead of his name.

  • What do you have in mind to solve it?
    Add the player UID when a player name is returned.

Hi, and thanks for the feedback.

We will discuss the matter internally, and we will update you here.
It might take up to a few days.

Thanks.

Hi @HugoApex,

We added this feature request to our backlog.
We don’t have an ETA, though, which can take some time to implement and release. Thank you for your patience.
We will update you here once it is ready.

Thanks.

Is there any ETA now ? it’s been 1 month

@flo025 Hey,

Usually, feature requests take some time to develop (not like bugs that are usually solved fast).
I will ask internally to re-estimate the priority of this request.

Thanks
