NRG’s Coby ‘Apex Legends Pro-Am event with two wins from three games.

On July 11, ESPN hosted their first EXP event, with Apex Legends being the game of choice. Some of the biggest names in the gaming and sporting worlds descended on Los Angeles in the hopes of becoming an Apex Champion. 

Bragging rights and charitable donations to the V Foundation – set up in the name of former basketball coach Jim Valvano to help Cancer Research – were the only prizes on offer, but that didn’t stop players like dizzy showing up in a big way. 

Respawn EntertainmentCelebrity and gaming trios jumped into Kings Canyon for a shot at Pro-Am glory.

Dizzy and his team, WWE star Jimmy Uso and IGN’s Sydnee Goodman, claimed victory in game three. It was the final, and ultimately biggest match of the night, as the NRG Esports star clutched up with seven kills. 

The win, which was the team’s second of the night, helped them claim the top prize of $20,000 in donations to the V Foundation, as well as a further $1,000 thanks to dizzy’s MVP performance. 

The trios first win of the night came as the event kicked off with game one. Dizzy’s partners may have fallen by the wayside, but the Apex star finally made it all the way to the final circle. 

While he was faced with the difficult prospect of taking down Lucas ‘Mendokusaii’ Håkansson, the pair agreed to a melee match-up to finish things off. In typical dizzy fashion, he got the better of his opponent and claimed the title of Apex Champion – as well as $2,000 in donations.

The team couldn’t complete the clean sweep, however, as they exited game two early and gave everyone else a chance at winning.

After a disappointing last-place finish in game one, Team Dr Disrespect responded in a big way by claiming victory. The hugely popular streamer and NBA superstar Devin Booker combined for seven kills on their way to earning the second round of $2,000 in donations.

With there not being any overall standings at the end of the night or point scoring system, there won’t be any concerns about finishing last. 

At the close of play, the event was all about securing charitable donations for the V Foundation, and it was clear that dizzy’s squad came out as the big winners. 

Final donations totals

Team Wins Donations
Team Jimmy Uso Two $23,000
Team DrDisrespect One $2,000

Apex Legends YouTuber leaks Season 7 lobby & Horizon skin on accident

An Italian Youtuber seems to have accidentally shared embargoed footage of the upcoming Apex Legends Season 7’s lobby, challenges, and even a brand new skin for the yet-to-be-released Horizon character.

Apex Legends Season 7 is set to kick off on November 4, and with everyone itching to get a look at all of the new content headed our way, some of it may have been unveiled a tad bit too early.

As is the case before pretty much every new season, some of the game’s more prominent content creators are given early access to try out and record the new content for their YouTube channels, which can’t be released before a specified date.

For S7, that date was Monday, November 2, but, on October 31, YouTuber Mox600 inadvertently uploaded a shot of Horizon with her new outfit skin standing in the revamped lobby, before he quickly made the video private.

In the leaked video, we see a mohawked, neon Horizon who’s also rocking some goggles and what seems to be body armor as well. Let’s just say it’s a good thing Olympus seems to have plenty of color going on because this one might stick out like a sore thumb on maps like Kings Canyon and World’s Edge.

Because Respawn won’t start selling new items for her until the season gets going, this cosmetic is most likely a Battle Pass skin, maybe even the one players unlock in the final Tier.

Apex’s pre-game lobby has a fresh new look as well, as it seems to actually be outside in the streets of Olympus, with the brand new Season 7 map serving as a backdrop for player banners.

Along with these we also got a look at the new STARS system. Combined with match XP, the STARS will contribute to a repeatable weekly challenge that grants a full Battle Pass level with each completion. This XP is specific to Battle Pass, meaning it won’t impact Account Level progression.

While this definitely appears to be a legit leak of upcoming Season 7 content, in the grand scheme of things there’s still a lot of actual gameplay to see as we get ready to head into Olympus, so we wouldn’t really consider this that massive of a spoiler.

Exactly what will be included in the upcoming Battle Pass should be soon revealed as well, but at least we got a look at one of the skins that’ll likely be featured, and if it’s anything to go by, Season 7 might be a doozy.
