In the early days of Apex Legends, Colby ‘dizzy’ Meadows was the man who sat head and shoulders above everyone else in the rankings, after an impressive start to his Apex career that saw him take home numerous wins. Now, in 2023, the top spot has been taken by TSM’s Philip ‘ImperialHal’ Dosen, with his teammate Jordan ‘Reps’ Wolfe right behind him.

That was thanks to TSM’s victory at the recent ALGS Split 1 Playoffs in London, which had a $1 million prize pool. The record for highest prize purse in Apex Legends history belongs to the 2022 ALGS Championship, which had $2 million up for grabs.
