In an effort to credit a popular streamer and content creator for his work on apex legends weapon skin, developer Response Entertainment made a small, but meaningful, error. Respon added the name of former NRG content creator and apex streamer Lululuveli, who helped design the Aftershock Wave R-301 skin for the game’s third-birthday event last year. Unfortunately, the developer misspelled her name: the skin is described as “inspired by Luluvali” rather than “Luluveli”. If you need more information about Apex Legends’ Attempt to Credit Streamer on Skin Design Goes Very Poorly then read carefully and don’t forget to share with your friends.
No other manufacturer names were added to the details of the Aftershock Wave or the skin of any other weapon.After the mistake was noticed by Apex Data Minor and news source Kralrindo, Apex senior producer Josh Medina claimed ownership of the mistake in a tweet response. “I’m adding credits for all participants for the upcoming patch,” he shared. “Blurb, who credits the producers and [the cast], is coming soon. This likely means that other community-created skins will receive credit in the near future.
Luluveli, who left the role of Apex earlier this year, was originally involved in the creation of Aftershock Wave Skin with community artist Lilakey. In a clip explaining one of the reasons he left, he claimed that shortly before the skins went live, EA revealed that the creators and artists of community skins would not be credited in the game, nor would they receive any revenue from skin sales.Luluveli shared that he was promised the only recognition that was mentioned in a blog post.
According to Dexterto, Luluveli was paid directly to help with the skins, but because EA wasn’t using his name and likeness in the game, he didn’t receive any compensation after the skin went live. Now that Luluveli’s name is in the game, it is unclear whether he will receive any kind of royalties or whether the terms of his agreement with EA will change. Still, it’s a step in the right direction for artists and community members, who always deserve to get credit for their work. Lulu has not yet responded to adding his name to Apex or misspelling.
