Apex Legends Pros Win ESPN Invitational

Updated Fri, Apr 24, 2020 in eSports Streaming 1 comment


Esports pros, former pros and streamers from nearly every FPS scene battled in the ESPN Esports VALORANT Invitational. 

CS:GO, Overwatch, Rainbow Six Siege, Fortnite, PUBG, Apex Legends and even League of Legends were represented, as well as a team of highly skilled VALORANT devs (some former CS:GO pros and map designers themselves).

Rosters included:

Group A

Team Mirage (CS:GO): Skadoodle, AZK, Brax, N0thing & Hiko

Team Heroes (Overwatch): Emongg, Boostio, Gale, Kephrii & Carter

Team Six (Rainbow Six Siege): rampy, Thinkingnade, Canadian, NVK, Necrox

Team Rift (League of Legends): DoubleLift, Xmithie, Shiphtur, Imaqtpie, Dyrus & Rivington (who subbed in for DoubleLift) 

Group B

Team Canyon (Apex Legends): Kellar, SYncDez, aceu, dizzy & Mendo

Team Llama (Fortnite): Joseph, Thwifo, Psalm, HighSky, XXIF

Team Battlegrounds (PUBG): Vegas, Venerated, Valliate, Yaboidre, Sharky & Coach: 7Teen

Team Dev (VALORANT Developers): Ntt, Penguin, Nick "Nickwu" Wu, Bobby "excal" Prochnow, Sal "Volcano" Garozzo

Going into the 3-day event, Team Mirage (made up of CS:GO pros) and Team Dev (VALORANT Developers) were heavy favorites two win it all. Team Mirage had won a few other Invitationals since the launch of the Closed Beta.

The entire tournament was a highlight reel of high tier gameplay. The most fascinating matches of the tournament were the Semifinal between Team Mirage and Team Dev and the Final between Team Mirage and Team Canyon.

Team Canyon pulled out the upset of the tournament taking out Team Mirage in the final. Keller, Mendo, and aceu soared in the 3 map final to secure the championship.
