Twitch streamer Apex Legends Twitch Prime Crown Cup on July 13, and decided to lean her head over and peek at her opponent’s screen during the closing minutes of a match in an effort to get an advantage.

Twitch hosted an Apex Legends tournament on July 13 in Las Vegas that featured Tim ‘TimTheTatman‘ Betar as the host with a variety of other streamers and celebrities, all focused on bringing home the victory.

Before the celebrity portion of the event started, streamers competed against each other to come home with the most kills. Alinity was in a huge hole so she decided to take a peek at another screen in an effort to make a comeback.

Alinity was part of an Apex Legends tournament in Las Vegas with other streamers.

However, instead of being placed next to their teammates each time the teams changed, the streamers remained in their normal spots which meant they could end up right next to their opponents.

Alinity took full advantage of this by leaning over and taking a look at her opponent’s screen and learning their location, relaying this to her teammate ANGRYPUG.

“I see them, they got rezzed,” she said after looking at both GoldGlove and Anthony Kongphan’s screens next to her. “They’re in the caves, Sequisha, Fem, and Anthony. Fem has a blue shield.”

It was played off as a gag with Tim jokingly suggested security should come in and get rid of her. This was all in good fun and it didn’t actually end up working out for her as she was quickly dispatched, despite the extra info. 

In a surprise to nobody at the event, King Richard was able to come home with the most kills before the tournament then moved on to the celebrity round.

In the end, it can be chalked up as a successful tournament as it brought in a consistent 100,000+ view count and gave Apex Legends a lot of publicity.

The tournament also highlighted the fact that exclusive loot is available. If you’re a Twitch Prime member, you can pick up Apex Legends loot from now until August 12.

Respawn and Twitch teamed up to offer several loot drops so be sure to grab those while they’re still available.

Respawn Entertainment have revealed their newest teaser ahead of Apex Legends Season 7, involving a black hole and a small spaceship.

With Apex Legends Season 7 dropping on November 4, fans of Respawn Entertainment’s battle royale have been eager for details about the new Legend, a potential new map, and everything else that a brand new season brings.

The devs have already dropped some hints about potentially adding ‘Olympus’ as a new map, used Horizon as a potential new Legend to give players challenges, and started talking about who will be receiving a buff with the big update.

They’ve also added a big teaser in the form of a familiar-looking ‘UFO’ floating off the coast of both World’s Edge and King’s Canyon. Now, they’ve moved on to a new teaser – a black hole.

Horzion was the latest Legend to be teased in-game.

The black hole doesn’t appear in Kings Canyon or World’s Edge, but instead, is the main image being used to hype up the new Stories from the Outlands video

The video, which is set to go live on Monday, October 26 at 3 pm GMT/11 am EDT/8 am PDT, is titled ‘Promise’ and in the image showing the black hole, a small spacecraft can also be seen in the bottom left-hand corner. 

Some players have quickly suggested that the video is all about Horizon’s official reveal as a new Legend, but it could be showing a flight to Olympus for the new map. We won’t know for sure until the video is premiered. 

Each Tales from the Outlands videos has given us more and more insight into the bigger story surrounding Apex Legends, including things like the backstory of Bloodhound and the death of Forge. 

What this one has in store still remains to be seen, but it’s sure to be packed with teasers for Season 7, and potentially even other future seasons.
