Professional Apex Legends Team Claims Squads 'Cheated' In $460k ALGS Grand Finals

As Apex Legends' elite players drop into the arena to be crowned regional champions and get their hands on a slice of a whopping crowd-funded prize pool. 

Whether they're gassing out the opposition with a Caustic smoke screen or raining missiles from the heavens with Valkyrie, the best teams in the world are duking it out in an intense fashion, even if it's played in an online setting.

Amid the global pandemic, the ALGS Grand Finals have been forced to remain online, having usually been in a LAN setting where the advantages of better production quality, connectivity benefits, and an electric atmosphere add to the spectacle. 

However, online production opens up scope for a few issues, and one team has now opened up accusations of teams cheating in the APAC South region.

APAC South's Athaim Accuse opposition Of Using Aimbot In ALGS Grand Finals

According to reports from The Loadout, third-placed Athaim players believe that opposition players were using aimbot in the ALGS APAC South Grand Finals.

Athaim’s founder Oluwadamilola "Ritehero" Akinleye told the publication that they believe an unnamed team "were using aimbots to artificially boost their performance" within the event. Whilst the team avoided making any direct claims against a specific side, only two sides finished above the Thai side.

22-year-old "Oatto" added "We have won championships in other gaming titles, so we feel that our skills are just as good on LAN. We feel this online event has made some players look better than they really are, due to cheating or fast PCs.

"At LANs, [there is] an even playing field – no hiding cheats in your parent’s house, and seeing your competition face to face. We feel we will be the best on LAN, no problem.”

EA has yet to comment on the accusations, which will surely overshadow what was a thrilling final.

WOLFPACK ARTIC WIN ALGS APAC SOUTH

The ALGS APAC South Grand Finals came down to the wire, with a Round 7 game on Worlds Edge being the decisive moment.

With a list of teams surpassing the 50-point mark that made them eligible to win the event, one of many teams needed to secure a win.

Both Athaim and Tom Yum Kung could have closed out the finals in Game 6 but fell to Inside The Ring, meaning it was open to a final match. With ITR, Athaim and WOLFPACK ARCTIC all making it to the final three, a win was on the cards for one team. ARCTIC's Zirul "Zaratass" Iman used Wraith's Into The Void ability to survive in the final ring, becoming the last man standing and taking home the $177,319 prize.

Both EU and NA's Grand Finals kick off this weekend too, with drops enabled for viewers.
