For the third time in a row, NRG Esports pro players Dizzy and KingRichard, along with Overwatch pro Mendokusaii, have won the March 29 running of the Code Red tournament for Apex Legends.

As usual, the March 29 Code Red Apex Legends tournament featured some of the biggest names of the battle royale community, and was hosted by none other than popular Twitch streamer Dr Disrespect, along with online gaming platform BoomTV.

If you are not familiar with how format used in this tournament, make sure to read up on it in our Code Red Apex Legends tournament hub before continuing with this recap.

Recap of March 29 Code Red Apex Legends Grand Final

Dizzy, KingRichard, and Mendokusaii, whose team name was Twitch Prime Time, beat out vsnz, chocoTaco, and HusKerrs (Reid’s Money Clan) in the Grand Final to secure the $13,000 first place prize.

Having already beaten Reid’s Money Clan to win the Winner’s Bracket final, Twitch Prime Time needed to only claim one match in the Grand Final to win the tournament, while their opponents needed to take two back-to-back.

Knowing this, Reid’s Money Clan surprised everyone as they took the first match 36-19, resetting the bracket and forcing a winners-take-all second match for the first time in tournament history.

Overwatch pro player Mendokusaii played a crucial role in securing a three-peat for Twitch Prime Time in the Code Red Apex Legends tournament.

With everything on the line, the second game started off well for Twitch Prime Time, as they put together 25 eliminations and a match victory to take a 33-18 lead after the first of three maps.

The second map turned out to be a very tight affair, as both teams put up nearly identical scores to go into the third and final map with Dizzy and co. leading 64-50.

Seemingly dead in the water, Reid’s Money Clan put up a tremendous effort to close the game in the final map, but Twitch Prime Time clutched up with a victory in their match to secure the championship Grand Final 95-86.

Apex Legends dev confirms highly-requested inventory feature coming soon

The era of ‘red dots’ littered across Apex Legends’ menu tabs will finally come to an end after Respawn confirmed they’re implementing a ‘mark all as seen’ button to the game.

Apex’s bustling community is rejoicing after the developers indicated the long-awaited quality of life update that is scheduled for the next patch, if everything goes to plan.

While fans of the game have known for a while that the feature was pending, there hasn’t been much news of it since seeing it on Respawn’s Trello board a while ago. Since the conversation’s gone dark, it’s been a waiting game to see if the developers would follow-up on the organizational feature.

Well, an inquiring fan created a mock-up of what the ‘mark all as seen’ button could look like within the character-select screen. But fiction turned into reality once Respawn Senior Game Designer, Daniel Z. Klein, chimed into the discussion.

The red dots on tabs have cursed the Apex Legends menu screen for a while.

“Could we get a ‘Mark all as seen’ button? Would be useful instead of going through all the menus to clear the icons,” user ‘TigerTankSniper’ suggested, before Klein was happy to oblige.

“Good news! That’s probably coming in the next patch! John Hodgson put that one in not too long ago,” Klein was happy to report. Hodgson is another Senior Game Designer at Respawn, who’s about to make a lot of the Apex fans really happy.

Since the launch of Apex Legends back in February 2019, there’s been a ton of content regularly injected into the battle royale. This stretches from Legends, weapon cosmetics, sky trails, holo sprays, voice lines, banners, and a lot more.

As much as the fans have loved adding troves of content to their personal libraries, every time something new gets added a small red dot appears to notify players of the change.

“I have an army of them because all the useless blue and white items I get, not really motivated enough to click on all them so now it just keeps growing bigger and bigger,” one person wrote.

The thing is, those little indicators can be persistent and a bit of a bother; hence, the quality of life update that’s coming into the game very soon.

But the community can let out a collective sigh of relief seeing as they shouldn’t be a problem in Apex Legends after the next update.
