NRG Esports’ pro players Dizzy and KingRichard, along with Overwatch pro Mendokusaii, have won the North American half of the $150,000 Twitch Rivals Apex Legends Rematch Challenge.
Played on April 2, the Twitch Rivals Apex Legends Rematch Challenge featured some of the biggest names in the European and North American battle royale communities battling it out for a share of the $150,000 prize pool, which was divided between the two regions.
The European half of the tournament was won by a team named Team Degliddei, comprised of popular streamers POW3RTV, stermy, and AvalloneHal.

Recap of NA half of Twitch Rivals Apex Legends Rematch Challenge
Widely considered to be one of the best squads in competitive Apex Legends, it came as no surprise when King’s Canyon, featuring Dizzy, Mendo, and KingRichard, made it all the way to the championship match of the tournament.
Because the competition was played using a swiss format, there could only be two undefeated teams after the first three rounds of play.
One of these teams was King’s Canyon, who beat Apex Legends of the Hidden Temple (HCJustin, Pause, UnrulyBabs), Vissrespect The Kraft (Dr Disrespect, TSM_Viss, RealKraftyy), and Full Trihard (OverpoweredOW, m0xyy, aimbotcalvin)

The other team that managed to go undefeated was Vince the Slap Chop, featuring Kephirr, Tennp0, and Lyric, as they managed to beat PepeHands (CrReam, Uleet, helllerr), The Broys (shroud, Skadoodle, just9n), and Reid’s Money Team (chocoTaco, Halifax, vsnz)
This meant that the two undefeated teams would play for first place in the fourth and final round of the tournament, which saw each team load into two separate public matches and try to score as many points possible.
The first map ended up being a very tight affair, as Vince the Slap Chop managed to eek out a one point lead going into the second map thanks to their match victory.
Despite not getting a match victory of their own, King’s Canyon was able to keep up thanks to KingRichard’s impressive 15 elimination match.
That set up an intense second map with all to play for, and it was King’s Canyon who asserted their dominance and ended up with a ton of eliminations and the match victory 65-61.
Despite their best efforts and getting a victory as well, Vince the Slap Chop just could not get enough eliminations to match their opponents.

Final standings of the Twitch Rivals Apex Legends Rematch Challenge
Since these tournaments are played using the swiss format, each team’s placement in the final standings was based on their overall record after the four rounds of matches.
If two teams ended up tied in their records, the tiebreaker was determined by the number of points they scored throughout all of the four rounds.
As for the prize money earned by each team, that was based on a breakdown that awarded $2,000 per win and $250 per loss. An additional $1,000 bonus was given to the teams that got the most wins, most kills, and most damage dealt.
