Apex Season 20 Shakeup: Power Rankings and Roster Changes for ALGS Year 4

Estimated read time 4 min read

As Apex Legends Season 20 unfolds, the landscape of the ALGS for all regions is experiencing a seismic shift. With substantial changes to the way armor functions, the gun meta, and the addition of legend perks, teams are compelled to adapt swiftly to stay at the top of their game. As we gear up for the second half of Split 1 in ALGS, let’s take a closer look at the teams that are poised to make a significant impact in North America this weekend and beyond.

Power Rankings

1. DarkZero: Unstoppable Dominance

Leading the pack is DarkZero, a team that has demonstrated unparalleled consistency in scrims over the past month. Since January 28, they have placed consistently in the top 3, a testament to the formidable trio of Zer0, Genburten, and Sikezz. Zer0’s confidence as an In-Game Leader (IGL) has been a cornerstone of their success, and with Genburten and Sikezz complementing as two of the best controller fraggers in the league DarkZero appears to be an unstoppable force in the North American ALGS scene.

2. Moist Esports: A Strong Transition

Moist Esports made waves with their move from APAC South to the highly competitive North American region. All eyes were on them, and they’ve met the challenge head-on. The addition of Gild to their roster adds another layer of strength, making them a team to watch closely as they aim for a robust finish to the season.

3. TSM: Consistency Amidst Change

TSM, led by the decorated ImperialHal, has long been considered one of the best teams globally. Season 20 brought about significant alterations, challenging every team to adapt swiftly. TSM, however, remains a constant threat in scrims continuing to win many games, showcasing their adaptability with Hal’s switch of legends from Horizon to Bloodhound. Watch out for TSM as they strive to maintain their dominance under pressure.

4. Luminosity Gaming: New & Old Blood

The decision for Ex-NRG Sweetdreams to change up his situation completely by playing alongside two young controller players in Fuhhnq and Slayr has worked out well so far. Sweet has a lot to prove and is motivated to get it done with this new roster. Currently, at 2nd in the overall standings, let’s see if they have the capability to adapt in Season 20 and stay on top.

5. Furia: “His” Return

Furia has had impressive showing consistently in scrims and prior match days this split with the return of HisWattson. This time around with his appearance in ALGS, Wattson has decided to take a more passive role in terms of being IGL. That role is filled by long-time player Madness backed by monster controller player Keon. This roster has all the right pieces to succeed, it’s just a matter of putting it all together and finishing strong. Keep an eye on Furia to make a run in the second half of the season.

Notable Roster Changes

The three-week break in ALGS allowed several teams to revamp their rosters in pursuit of an elevated standing late in the season. Notable changes include Native Gaming’s addition of Luxford, Sentinels’ swap of Orioles for Lewda, and SKRT’s shift from Awakening to the leader Hambino.

  • Native Gaming’s Luxford: A controller player with a point to prove, Luxford joins Native Gaming looking to make a statement.
  • Sentinels’ Lewda: The team looks to become more aggressive with Lewda’s assertive play style replacing Orioles.
  • SKRT’s Hambino and Albralelie: This roster change is among the most recent and still changing. Opting for a more vocal IGL experience, SKRT led by former 100T Scuwry parted ways with Awakening in favor of Hambino’s leadership and IGL experience. In more shocking news to the community Albralelie has announced that this will be his last weekend competing in Apex…

If Albralelie stays true to his word regardless of the outcome this weekend SKRT will need another roster change. Perhaps they fill the fragger role they have desperately needed.

These roster changes among many more add an extra layer of excitement to the second half of Split 1 in North America, with teams vying to climb the leaderboard and secure their spot among the elite in the ALGS.

As we approach the upcoming match days, the dynamic landscape of Apex Legends promises intense competition, showcasing the adaptability and skill of these top-tier teams. Keep a keen eye on DarkZero, Moist Esports, TSM, and the rest of the field as they navigate the challenges of Season 20 and as always strive to leave their mark on the ALGS in Year 4.
