The first Apex Legends tournament, the Twitch Rivals: APEX Legends Challenge, was held in two regions: Europe and North America. The Kings Canyon team (Ninja, KingRichard and dizzy) won the NA side, Team MANE (Gotaga, Mickalow, Robi) took home the EU side. The next tournament was launched under the wings of DrDisrespect: Code Red Apex Legends.

The birth of a new competitive discipline has generated interest from the giants of cyber sports organizations. NRG, one of the first organizations to start searching for Apex talent. They made the first true Apex Legends pro signing by including one of the best players on the planet, Dizzy.

Fnatic

By February 14th, it became clear that because of Apex Legends popularity, most of the biggest eSport organizations would be on the lookout for new talent. Following the Apex Legends trend, Fnatic also joined in on the lookout to form a squad. Hoping they won’t suffer the fate as their CS: GO line-up.


Natus Vincere

The CIS has always sought to support fast-paced games and Apex Legends is no exception. Natus Vincere announced recruiting via twitter, looking to find the right talent. NaVi is an excellent organization to be part of.

Is a major Apex Legends Tournament even possible?

So far, Apex Legends is turning out to be the PUBG of 2019. An unexpected appearance with an immediate influx of players. That was the good side of PUBG. But bad optimization, server crashes and bugs, hurt its growth. Although Apex Legends is still fresh, there are already piles of critical bugs being found on a regular basis. Recently, Battle(non)sense channel conducted its study of the Apex Legends network code and concluded that the game’s ping is horrible. According to the test, Apex Legends ping between players can reach up to 250 ms, which is unacceptable for any type of serious gaming.

Network Lag Apex Legends

It will take work to fix the problem and the question comes down to how fast will these issues be assessed ? Why is Respawn Entertainment silent ? It comes down to an unfinished product they released. Maybe they did not expect such popularity right out the gate? Or did they consider releasing the game hoping nobody would notice its poor network performance?

Although its easy to keep fans happy with Battle Pass seasons and new Legends. The core and longevity of a title relies on its performance. It will be very interesting to see how Respawn and EA address the situation and how long it takes.
