Apex Legends Global Series #6 has come to a close, with teams from across the globe doing battle in their own respective regions. Here, we take a look at the final placements for North America and Europe.

Even though Apex Legends has proven to be a hugely successful title in the battle royale market, it hasn’t quite taken over the esports landscape just yet.

Organizations have pretty stacked teams and there have been plenty of tournaments, both online and on LAN – with the Global Series events having been played with the most regularity. On May 31st, the sixth installment of the ALGS came to a close with some fan-favorite squads dominating their respective regions after 160 teams entered.

In North America, the glory and $7,200 top prize was claimed by NRG’s trio of Frexs, Nafen, and Rocker. The team scored 57 points to finish atop the North America standings as they won two games and picked up 25 kills across their five games.

Sola Fide finished in second place, missing out on the top prize by four points. Team SoloMid rounded out the top three with a final score of 51 points while notable names like Complexity, Rogue, Sentinels, and Team Liquid finished in fourth, sixth, ninth, and 13th respectively.

Apex Legends Global Series 6 Europe final standings

In Europe, there was a bit more breathing room for winners GSD, as they finished with 55 points – nine points above second-place Чмк. Compared to their North American counterparts, GSD only won one game but racked up 24 kills and consistent top placings – only finishing outside the top five once in their five matches.

Virtus Pro completed the top three by finishing with 44 points – a single point better than both Team Purge and Gambit. After struggling to get going, exClique made a late run on the top of the table by winning game five and tallying 10 kills.

Even though only the top ten teams from each region walked away with some cash to split between themselves, everyone who finished in their regional top 80 claimed some ALGS points.

These points will give teams a chance at qualifying for later Global Series events as the competitive Apex season builds up to its Majors.

Respawn Entertainment’s Apex Legends was an overnight sensation and it’s barely slowed down. In its two years of success, there’s been map changes galore, new legends joining the fight, and an ever-evolving meta – but we’re here to test your knowledge with a quiz.

Kings Canyon was the original map we all dropped into on that fine day of February 4, 2019. Fast forward 24 months, Apex Legends is still one of the most popular battle royale’s – but a lot has changed.

As we approach Season 8, there’s 15 characters to play with, two maps to drop into, and a weapons list containing 24 different guns. On top of that, each seasonal update has delivered different tweaks to gameplay and snippets of Legend lore for various fighters – which means the scope for our quiz questions is quite broad.

By now, you will have been named Champions of the Arena on numerous occasions. But, do you have what it takes to get a perfect score on our ultimate Apex Legends quiz?

Take our Apex Legends quiz!

Your test score will determine just how well you know the Outlands in the Apex world.

The world, of course, is connected to that of the Titanfall series, which was also developed by Respawn Entertainment. Many weapons and features have crossed over between planets, presumably with even more of that to come in the future.

Fuse can launch explosives from his mechanical arm. He’s coming in Season 8.

Fuse is the latest to join Apex Legends as a playable character, with a new 30-30 Repeater rifle being added too. For more details on that, check out some of the stories we’ve covered for the game’s next major update:

Don’t be too downhearted if you don’t receive a perfect score this time, but if you are named a Champion, be sure to tweet us @TitanfallBlog on Twitter.
