NRG Esports’ pro players Dizzy and KingRichard, along with Overwatch pro Mendokusaii, have won the North American half of the $150,000 Twitch Rivals Apex Legends Rematch Challenge.

Played on April 2, the Twitch Rivals Apex Legends Rematch Challenge featured some of the biggest names in the European and North American battle royale communities battling it out for a share of the $150,000 prize pool, which was divided between the two regions.

The European half of the tournament was won by a team named Team Degliddei, comprised of popular streamers POW3RTV, stermy, and AvalloneHal.

Below you can find the recap of the NA tournament as well as the final placements for both competitions. If you are not familiar with the format used in these tournaments, make sure to check out our Twitch Rivals Apex Legends Rematch Challenge hub.

The NA half of the Twitch Rivals Apex Legends Rematch Challenge featured some very popular streamers, including both shroud and Dr Disrespect.

Recap of NA half of Twitch Rivals Apex Legends Rematch Challenge

Widely considered to be one of the best squads in competitive Apex Legends, it came as no surprise when King’s Canyon, featuring Dizzy, Mendo, and KingRichard, made it all the way to the championship match of the tournament.

Because the competition was played using a swiss format, there could only be two undefeated teams after the first three rounds of play. 

One of these teams was King’s Canyon, who beat Apex Legends of the Hidden Temple (HCJustin, Pause, UnrulyBabs), Vissrespect The Kraft (Dr Disrespect, TSM_Viss, RealKraftyy), and Full Trihard (OverpoweredOW, m0xyy, aimbotcalvin)

The other team that managed to go undefeated was Vince the Slap Chop, featuring Kephirr, Tennp0, and Lyric, as they managed to beat PepeHands (CrReam, Uleet, helllerr), The Broys (shroud, Skadoodle, just9n), and Reid’s Money Team (chocoTaco, Halifax, vsnz)

This meant that the two undefeated teams would play for first place in the fourth and final round of the tournament, which saw each team load into two separate public matches and try to score as many points possible.

The first map ended up being a very tight affair, as Vince the Slap Chop managed to eek out a one point lead going into the second map thanks to their match victory. 

Despite not getting a match victory of their own, King’s Canyon was able to keep up thanks to KingRichard’s impressive 15 elimination match.

That set up an intense second map with all to play for, and it was King’s Canyon who asserted their dominance and ended up with a ton of eliminations and the match victory 65-61.

Despite their best efforts and getting a victory as well, Vince the Slap Chop just could not get enough eliminations to match their opponents.

MVP of Twitch Rivals Apex Legends Rematch Challenge

The Most Valuable Player award for the NA half of the Twitch Rivals Apex Legends Rematch Challenge was awarded to Dizzy, who once again proved why many consider him to be the best Apex player in the world.

Below you can check out some of his best moments and highlights from the tournament.

Final standings of the Twitch Rivals Apex Legends Rematch Challenge

Since these tournaments are played using the swiss format, each team’s placement in the final standings was based on their overall record after the four rounds of matches. 

If two teams ended up tied in their records, the tiebreaker was determined by the number of points they scored throughout all of the four rounds.

As for the prize money earned by each team, that was based on a breakdown that awarded $2,000 per win and $250 per loss. An additional $1,000 bonus was given to the teams that got the most wins, most kills, and most damage dealt.

Respawn Senior Game Designer wants more “non-BR” modes in Apex Legends

Respawn Senior Game Designer Daniel Z. Klein is a big fan of Apex Legends’ non-BR modes, and would want the studio to experiment with a few more concepts after seeing how successful the Winter Express has been.

Admittedly, Klein isn’t a part of the game modes team at Respawn, but the senior developer gave his preference on which direction the battle royale could take from here. Previous modes like Hunt and the Winter Express tweaked Apex’s typical formula, giving players something different to get their hands on.

The team at Respawn has proven they can make modes that don’t feed into the normal BR format but still create products that resonate with their players. Klein would like to see more of this out of Apex in the following seasons, though has said there’s not much to reveal on that front as of yet.

“I really want us to try more non-BR things; I think Winter Express was a wonderful proof of concept that Apex can be super fun in non-BR modes,” he said on Reddit. “I think something Mario Party-like, like (League of Legends’) Nexus Blitz, would probably be a bit too much for a game like Apex, but there are LOTS of cool things we could do.”

He isn’t wrong on that final point. Aside from being a solid battle royale in the bustling genre, Apex Legends has something unique that not many games can boast about: it’s incredible characters.

Respawn have injected a vast amount of lore and personality into their cast of 15 Legends, meaning they can produce nearly any mode they want without struggling with how it logistically fits into the game.

We kind of got a taste of that type of ingenuity with the Fight or Fright Collection Event, that showed Pathfinder teleporting into a night version of Kings Canyon which introduced the Shadowfall mode.

Now that there’s vehicles and loads of new gameplay mechanics in Season 7, non-BR modes like races, new PvE concepts, and more can be a frontrunner for possibilities to explore.

Like Klein said, there isn’t anything Respawn are ready to announce for Apex Legends as of yet, but players have loads of content to hold them over until they do.
