The fifth set of online tournaments in the Apex Legends Global Series North American and European regions has come to a close - and the final results put fresh faces atop the competition.
$23,000 was up for grabs over the weekend as European and North American Apex teams battled for the top spots in their respective regions.
With hundreds of teams competing throughout May 2 - May 3, there was plenty of action to keep on top of in the latest Global Series showdown.

While the top 10 teams throughout the event would land in the money, only the top five would automatically qualify for the following tournament. The names among the finalists might come as a surprise.
Complexity Gaming’s Ryan ‘Reptar’ Boyd, Bowen ‘Monsoon’ Fuller, and newfound third, Trenton ‘Lou’ Clements, fought their way to a fourth-place finish with 41 points.
Eeking out ahead of them and claiming the top spot, however, was Team Skrt. The trio managed to place inside the top 10 throughout every round of competition on the way to their dominant 70 point victory.
