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.

Apex Legends ‘death spot’ on Olympus is getting players stuck & killed

A bugged ‘death spot’ in Apex Legends has been discovered on Season 7’s new map, Olympus, that’s getting players stuck in place before eventually eliminating them completely.

There’s a lot of room for error in the sky city of Olympus. The new Apex Arena has ample spots where players can simply fall off the map, tight corridors that are a death trap if not navigated correctly, and more pitfalls to watch out for at every corner.

Unfortunately, the same can be said about simple features on the map, like the rotating Grow Towers that have already been known to prematurely end players’ games if they stay on the spinning platforms for too long.

However, sometimes, even getting onto the Grow Towers’ platform in the first place can be a game-ender considering the curvature of the building’s base kept user ‘WOAHderWOAHder’ stuck until he died.

After pinging their team’s next move on the screen, the player went up the tower’s half-pipe entrance but couldn’t clear the landing. Instead of being denied entry, they were just locked in mid-air, unable to move.

They were spamming buttons to try and dislodge themselves from the death spot, even crouching to move the character’s model. But all that did was give them a look through the Apex map into the void down below.

Eventually, the map dealt a killing blow to the Lifeline without a chance to escape the situation, and other people might have gone through similar scenarios.

Though they look harmless, Apex’s Grow Towers have been known to be deadly.

“Swear to God, I fucking hate climbing up on the Grow Towers! That first curve that you have to deal with is sooo annoying,” one said in response.

Though the loot at the Grow Towers makes it a worthwhile detour in a match, there are some risks involved that players will want to think about before rotating over there.

It’s unclear how to replicate this bug in Apex to best know when it could strike, but it’s only a matter of time before Respawn catches wind of the death spot and do a quick job of patching it.
