Apex Legends player creates incredible in-game tournament system

Apex Legends players have been sorely wanting some sort of ranked play introduced to the game for a while, but a more structured approach to competitive play could lie in a tournament mode.

Respawn Entertainment surprised battle royale and FPS fans when they launched their title on February 4. While the release window was nothing short of a tremendous success, players have been making clear what they game could use to keep matches interesting.

In that vein, the Apex fanbase have been making everything from unique Legends to useful concepts which would improve the quality of life for the battle royale from actual matches to how players interact.

Respawn EntertainmentApex tournaments could give squads a healthier environment of top level play.

In a Reddit post, user ‘HesSoPringles’ laid out an elaborate tournament ladder structure that would make games more rewarding to play while also finding a great way of spending all of the Legends Tokens people have racked up since launch.

While this wouldn’t necessarily be a replacement for a Ranked mode, the user’s concept would let anyone compete in Apex Games that could dish out worthwhile rewards.

There would be four tiered tournaments starting with the free “Outland” normal game in which the top 5 teams earn an “Apex Elite” ticket that gets them in the higher competition.

From the Elite tier, tournaments are bought into with Legends tokens, though HesSoPringles admits the amount of LT needed might need some tweaking since it would cost a whopping 1.2 million LT to enter.

Why would Tournaments be a good idea in Apex Legends?

Ideally, the higher tiered tournaments would have the better competition to play against. Also, a win or top five in those games would yield great rewards such as more LT to enter games and even exclusive skins.

Moreover, HesSoPringles thinks tournament modes like these would introduce a “natural progression that fits Apex’s theme.” Similarly, paying up the entry fees for the bigger tournaments would hopefully give players a more “personal investment” that would make games more challenging to play.

The Respawn devs have already announced that they’re going to introduce a more competitive system for players to dive into.

Even though the devs are working to implement better ways for players to compete, ideas like HesSoPringles could add a different dimension to Apex Legends.

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.
