Apex Pros Call Out ALGS for Not Paying Prize Money

Estimated read time 2 min read

The professional Apex Legends scene is in an uproar as allegations of unpaid tournament winnings surface. Recently, Shooby, a pro player for Bleed Esports, took to Twitter to voice his frustration, revealing he had received only $512 of the $5600 he earned from the Split 1 Playoffs of the ALGS (Apex Legends Global Series). This alarming discrepancy has ignited a wave of similar complaints from other professional players.

In response to Shooby’s tweet, numerous pros chimed in with their own experiences of being shortchanged. Notable players such as TylerFPS, Kimchi, and Reedz reported that they too have not received their full payouts from the same event, which took place a couple of months ago. Whether this issue stems from mismanagement of funds or something more nefarious is yet to be determined, but the situation is undeniably unprofessional and unacceptable. This is also not the first time this has happened, as ALGS and other leagues have had a history of not paying competing players correctly or quickly.

This controversy over unpaid winnings emerges just as the Apex Legends community is reeling from another contentious decision by the game’s developers. Yesterday, the official Apex Legends account announced a significant change to the battle pass system, sparking outrage among fans and content creators. The new system has been widely criticized, leading to calls for a boycott.

The current turmoil adds to a growing list of grievances against EA and Respawn Entertainment, the publishers and developers of Apex Legends, respectively. From questionable monetization practices to failing to adequately support their pro players, these recent events highlight ongoing issues within the game’s ecosystem.

As the community awaits further clarification and resolution regarding both the unpaid tournament winnings and the unpopular battle pass changes, the reputation of Apex Legends and its management continues to be called into question. Stay tuned for more updates on these developing stories.
