Greetings, Legends! G-Loot’s Apex Legends January Showdown just wrapped up, and what a show it was. Lots of great players fought through weekly brawls to win their tickets into the Showdown and finally clashed on this culmination of their efforts.

First-round standings

The first round was played in three groups—playing six matches each—all fighting for a place in the final round. No matter how well you think you know the game, it turned out that it was quite difficult to predict the winner of the tournament from the first-round standings. It was a tough fight for everyone and not without a few twists.

The standings in both first and final rounds are decided by the total score in that round, which is the total of points from total kills and placement in each match.

Here are the first-round standings of the teams who qualified for the final round:

Group 1

  • VCTRY Esports - 47 total kills with 95 total score

  • AND OUTPLAYED - 34 total kills with 77 total score

  • 789_ - 33 total kills with 66 total score

  • UpRising - 27 total kills with 64 total score

  • Xcentric - 27 total kills with 53 total score

  • SZISZ - 20 total kills with 50 total score

Group 2

  • Phoenix Legacy - 52 total kills with 101 total score

  • GMT - 45 total kills with 80 total score

  • Nemesis - 26 total kills with 61 total score

  • Fenerbahçe Espor - 22 total kills with 50 total score

  • ESKADA - 25 total kills with 47 total score 

  • GUILD Esports - 18 total kills with 45 total score

  • Game of Drones - 14 total kills with 43 total score

Group 3

  • SPIRAL Team - 28 total kills with 67 total score

  • Yung Money Guild - 36 total kills with 66 total score

  • NatusVincere - 32 total kills with 65 total score

  • ZETA DIVISION - 42 total kills with 64 total score

  • Alliance - 30 total kills with 52 total score

  • FiGVam - 23 total kills with 50 total score

  • MajorrPushers - 16 total kills with 46 total score

As the leaderboards show, Group 3 had the biggest and toughest clash between the top teams, with the top four teams having one total score difference each. Meanwhile, VCTRY Esports and Phoenix Legacy dominated their groups in terms of total kills and total score. All of these were about to change in the final round, though.

Final-round standings

The final round was played on Jan 30, and it was an adrenaline-inducing series of matches thanks to the great work of our guest commentators, Matrym and Porosaurus. The final round saw a domination by Alliance who—in a show of power—managed to win 3 of the 6 matches. ANC OUTPLAYED, GMT, and Yung Money Guild each won one match, gathering a substantial number of points.

In the thrilling final stretch, ANC OUTPLAYED managed to win the last game with Yung Money Guild in second place. However, the total kill count and placement points Alliance gathered through the six matches were more than enough for them to grab the overall victory in the January Showdown. With a staggering total of 44 kills and an insane total score of 97, Alliance won the first-place prize of $1785. Their closest competitor Yung Money Guild managed to win the second-place prize of $1110 with a total score of 66, and ZETA DIVISION came 3rd with a total score of 54 to win $690.

As all matches were played on World’s Edge, some teams were unlucky enough to face the lava pits in a lot of matches. Especially during the final round, almost every match ended around a big lava pit, forcing teams to fight each other while watching out to not cook themselves to death. World’s Edge is known to have some hot drop zones, which most of the teams smartly avoided to have some solid footing before engaging anyone. At the end of the day, though, aggressively pushing teams created the most engaging and exciting games to watch. 

Here are the final standings of the teams with their money prizes:

  • Alliance - 44 total kills with 97 total score, winnings of $1785

  • Yung Money Guild - 37 total kills with 66 total score, winnings of $1110

  • ZETA DIVISION - 42 total kills with 54 total score, winnings of $690

  • MajorrPushers - 31 total kills with 51 total score, winnings of $300

  • FiGVam - 24 total kills with 49 total score, winnings of $240

  • ANC OUTPLAYED - 20 total kills with 45 total score, winnings of $210

  • VCTRY Esports - 22 total kills with 45 total score, winnings of $180

  • GMT - 18 total kills with 41 total score, winnings of $150

  • Nemesis - 15 total kills with 31 total score, winnings of $120

  • GUILD Esports - 22 total kills with 31 total score, winnings of $90

  • ESKADA - 14 total kills with 24 total score, winnings of $75

  • SPIRAL Team - 8 total kills with 23 total score, winnings of $60
