A host of UK Apex Legends talent put in a dominant display at the Apex Legends Global Series (ALGS) EMEA Split 2 Regional Finals last weekend.
Alliance, featuring UK player Yuki, took first place and the $20,000 top prize, while UK-based esports organisation Vexed Gaming, with UK player Tyler, finished runners-up with $15,000.
Pioneers, with UK players SirDel and Zaine, finished third, taking home $12,000.
The top ten teams qualified for the Split 2 Playoffs, which are due to take place in London later this year, following 2023’s first ALGS LAN in London, won by TSM.
UK organisation Jlingz, who we wrote about ahead of the ALGS EMEA Regional Finals, put in a solid performance, finishing fifth, as did Vexed.
Vexed were down to a duo in the end stage. Despite this distinct disadvantage, they showed their resilience and resourcefulness with a Hail Mary play to the top of two silos, buying them crucial placement points.
But Alliance were the eventual winners, and celebrated with some tweets describing themselves as the kings of EMEA:
30 teams took part in the Split 2 Pro League EMEA tournament overall, competing in a double round robin format to start with, befor being ranked by points to list the top 20 teams playing in the regional final.

He also shared a clip of his winning moment:
