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.

Major and Premier Global Series events are still in the works for 2020 but there’s no telling when they might come to fruition.

Apex Legends hints at removing World’s Edge in Season 7

Apex Legends players are patiently waiting for Season 7 to begin and explore all the new content coming with it, but fans of World’s Edge will have to be patient to go back to Talos.

The map was added to Apex during Season 3 all the way back in October 2019 and was the second map in the game after King’s Canyon.

While it certainly mixed up the battle royale, it seems like World’s Edge will be on the way out when Season 7 gets going on November 4, 2020, based on what we’ve seen from Respawn.

In a tweet on Oct. 27, the official Apex Legends account hinted that “with World’s Edge on the verge of collapse, the Apex Games need to find a new home.”

It doesn’t take a genius to pick up on what Respawn is putting down here, as it seems the map will be removed from the game, at least for a while, with the start of Season 7.

This wouldn’t be without precedent either. Back in Season 3 when World’s Edge was first introduced King’s Canyon, the game’s original map from the release was removed until it returned in April of 2020.

With Ranked being broken into two splits for the new Season, Respawn plans to introduce players to Olympus, the new home of the Apex Games, before sending players back to WE later in the Ascension update.

In fact, Kings Canyon is already going to be completely nixed from Apex Legends’ ranked playlist in Season 7.

Apex legends will be moving to Olympus on Psamanthe for Season 7.

It seems likely that the Legends will board the giant rocket that appeared recently on World’s Edge and set off somewhere new to battle it out for the top spot.

As for what will happen to the train and everything else, there was a black hole showcased in Horizon’s Stories from the Outlands video, that certainly seems like it would be able to swallow the entire map, and even the planet it’s located on.
