Apex Rising finals, with stats and highlight clips

Jon "Falloutt" Kefaloukos made this tournament to bring more opportunities and events to the Apex Legends community, especially for undiscovered talent. Falloutt has expressed multiple times his enthusiasm for creating more grassroots events. According to Falloutt, this tournament is just the first of the "Apex Rising initiative" which is a by-the-community, for-the-community program, as explained in the clip below. Could Falloutt be the Nick Fury of the Apex Legends community?

So far, it seems that he has been successful at creating an event that unites the entire community, but if you want more on this exciting idea, check out our exclusive interview with Falloutt.

The unique quirk of this specific tournament was in the team line up, which saw one pro and two amateur players competing together. This has created a fantastic chance for aspiring pro players to prove themselves alongside popular streamers and pro players. One upcoming talent to keep an eye on is Vodery, a fifteen year old player who hopes to play in ALGS once he's sixteen. More information on this interesting tournament composition can be found here.

Furthermore, the Apex Rising charity tournament highlighted new talent beyond players. Casters like Ashurvok, Miss_MDK1, YoBoyCue, CeeBeeChan, Tenrekyt, and TAG_tom_apex brought a fantastic energy to the charity event with their jokes and expert commentary. 

How much did Apex Rising raise for charity?

By the end of the event, Apex Rising raised over $168,000 for (RED). However, you can still contribute to a fantastic cause by donating to the fight against AIDS. Donate via Tiltify here.

On top of that amazing amount raised by the community, the Bill and Melinda Gates foundation has pledged to match the number one for one. Meaning that the Apex community has helped raise $337,568 for the fight against AIDS.
