If you think you have the talent to play Apex Legends at the top level, then this Discord server geared toward the competitive community could be a good place to get started.

Even though Apex Legends is only a few weeks old at this point, members of the competitive community have gotten together to create a new Discord server that’s open to all aspiring players and teams.

Taking inspiration from the successful and highly popular Fortnite pro Discord, Wawa & CAlan created the Discord with the competitive community in mind.

They also brought Ghost Gaming Fortnite player Enzo ‘Enzo’ Simonette into the fold to assist in setting things up, with EA also keeping a close eye to obtain community feedback and communicate with members of the competitive scene. 

The Discord is currently getting full in hurry, too, having already attracted over 12,000 members, despite having only created the Discord on February 11.

Players from organizations like FaZe Clan, NRG Esports, Team Liquid and Cloud9 are already part of the server, and there are scouts from 100 Thieves and Team SoloMid on the lookout for players.

The day-to-day purpose of the Apex Pro Discord is to allow teams to setup ‘scrims’, or practice matches, and there are ‘Ranked gameplay leaderboards’ posted daily, giving an incentive for players to grind their way up the list.

If you are an aspiring pro player, or just want to play Apex Legends in a more competitive setting, then the Discord will certainly be a good place to start.

You can join the Discord server via direct invitation here, and more details can be found on the official website.

Apex Legends is still less than a month old, but the potential for a fully fledged professional and amateur scene is already being realized. With EA looking for feedback and communication, this could be the start of next big battle royale esport.

Kings Canyon and Mirage Voyage make surprise return to Apex Legends

In an impromptu update, Respawn Entertainment have delighted Apex Legends fans by bringing back both the Kings Canyon map and the Mirage Voyage point of interest for a limited time.

The Apex community lit up with a blend of surprise and joy when users logged onto the popular battle royale and found out that Kings Canyon was reintroduced to the game’s playlist options. As an added bonus, the game’s most infamous party boat, the Mirage Voyage, also spontaneously re-emerged as a landing spot.

A common emotional accompaniment to surprise is confusion and this geographical return was not lacking in either, according to Twitter reactions. The option to play on Kings Row was originally speculated to be a mistake because the playlist choice was only showing up for some players and mysteriously appearing then disappearing for others. 

But, following an official announcement from the Apex Legends Twitter account, it’s confirmed that the returns of Kings Canyon and Mirage Voyage are no mistake. In fact, they will be around for a full week.

Echoing the enthusiasm of their fans, Apex’s social media account delivered the news with a simple nod to jubilations: “It’s party time.”

And, as fans have been discovering in the brief time the map’s been made available, there are some tweaks to Kings Canyon and Mirage Voyage this time around — including some notable teasers and easter eggs. 

In one such piece of subtle content, there is a voicemail left to Mirage by his mother, Evelyn Witt, which can be found on a phone or tablet device that’s been left on one of the boat’s green couches. While it’s not a groundbreaking piece of lore, it does add to the game’s longrunning storylines.

This marks the first time since August 2020 that Mirage Voyage is available to contest in Apex Legends and the first time ever that it has sailed into Kings Canyon instead of World’s Edge. This blend of returns is both a chance for nostalgia and for content overlap.

Although the new playlist option will only be available until January 21, fans will be curious to know if this means Respawn intends on continuing to spontaneously bring back limited playlist offerings in the future.
