During our last @playapex gathering event, there was a bug with Wattson’s Electric Blue skin that made the textures disappear.
We have since sent the repair and completely refunded everyone who bought the leather before the repair was put into use. Refunded players keep the skin firm. pic.twitter.com/erN18fN9Xn
