Apex Legends is one of the biggest games to date, with the popularity of the game reaching some jaw dropping numbers in the first week, the player base is still really strong. There is no surprise that some of the biggest names in Esports wants to take centre stage when it comes to the Apex Legends Esports scene.
As soon as the game released, the developers new they wanted to join the rebellion and push Apex Legends to become a major competitor within the Esports world. Now it seems that large Esports organisations are finding their missing pieces when it comes to the Apex puzzle. Cloud9, one of the biggest Esports organisations, who have teams in all major Esports gaming, have finally announced their Apex Legends squad.
The battle royale game seems to take a lot of inspiration from the games Overwatch and Fortnite. Overwatch is a popular first-person shooter game which allows you to pick to play different heroes with different abilities, these are separated into; tank, support and damage classes. Apex has a similar style to this as it has different champions with different abilities, a Wraith and a Lifeline main have very different playstyles. It is all about the playstyle you have will lead you to main a character. Fortnite has been one of the most popular games since 2017, so there is no surprise when it comes to games like Apex Legends taking inspiration from that.
Cloud9 seems to have picked up a squad with experience in the field of competitive gaming. The roster listed as:
⦁ PVPX – Jamison Moore
⦁ Grego – Greg McAllen (former Overwatch player for Cloud9)
⦁ Chappie – Justing Andrew (former PUBG player for Cloud9)
⦁ Frexs – Joseph Sanchez (former PUBG player for Cloud9)
With major Esports organisations such as Cloud9 dipping its toes into the Waters of Apex, tournaments and events will start taking shape. It will be interesting to see how the Esports scene of Apex Legends fairs to one of its biggest competitors Fortnite.
