OpTic Gaming enters Apex Legends by signing top ALGS Pro League trio
OpTic Gaming are bringing the Greenwall to Apex Legends by signing one of the hottest teams in the ALGS ahead of the $1,000,000 Split 2 Playoffs.
Former Esports Arena representatives and ALGS Split 2 season leaders, William ‘SkittleCakes’ August, Logan ‘Knoqd’ Layou, and Ira ‘dooplex’ Shepherd will don the green-and-white for OpTic at the upcoming Stockholm LAN.
The trio have gelled together since the end of 2021 to become one of the most dangerous squads in the Outlands, topping the S2 standings with 121 points and solidifying its place in this weekend’s offline event.
As for the Greenwall, they were tempted to get into the busting Apex scene and the chance to sign an instant competitor was too good to pass up.
