Apex Legends Season 7 UFO Teaser Arrives In-Game

The mysterious UFO in Apex Legends has finally arrived in-game, though many of the questions surrounding it have yet to be answered.

The UFO was seen in a dev stream, off the Broken Coast. It then appeared by the Skyhook in a game a few weeks later. Now, it’s made a full appearance, floating about King’s Canyon by the Airbase and in World’s Edge by Overlook. It’s even in the Firing Range.

Data miners have been trying to figure out what the UFO means, but have only found data for it and not what it does. Now that it’s in-game, there are still questions data miners haven’t found answers for. It’s just here, and the purpose or meaning of it isn’t clear yet.

The UFO may be in game, but it’s not interactable for players. It just floats mysteriously off the map.

We’ve seen the UFO before, actually. It appears briefly in the Season 4 launch trailer, on Olympus. Olympus has long been rumored to be a playable map in-game, and getting a new map in Season7 would be a treat.

Season 6 wraps up in early November, so we can expect more news about Season 7 and the UFO soon.

Apex Legends Dev Believes Wattson Isn’t ‘Useless’

On the Apex Legends Reddit, a post titled “Buff Wattson please,” has over 15,000 upvotes, but Apex Legends developer DanielZKlein was quick to rebuff. “I just finished watching the VODs from yesterday’s ALGS Grand Finals and… Wattson was all over the place? True, she was no longer on every single team, but still easily on 50-60% on teams. Just rewound the final game and counted; there was a Wattson on 4 of the 6 last squads?”

Klein goes on to explain that Wattson’s main problem isn’t her power level, but that her kit isn’t enticing to players. Battle royales have become fast-paced endeavors where players are flying around the map looking for a fight. Professional play is a bit different since players are a bit more cautious with money on the line.

That causes Wattson to be in a difficult place. She is rather powerful with a squad that values teamwork and holding locations. This is perfect for end-game scenarios, but not typical gamers.

Klein is in the same boat as everyone else, what to do? “Anyway, where does that leave us with Wattson? Ideally we find a rework that makes at least part of her kit exciting in the moment while not losing her identity as a structure giver; in the meantime, I could be convinced to buff her here and there just to throw Wattson mains like yourself a bone but with absolutely no hope that any such buff would change any of the underlying problems (low pick rate and lack of satisfaction).”

We could seem some type of buff eventually targeting Wattson, but Klein doesn’t think this will do much. Players will just need to adjust or not play Wattson because it doesn’t seem like she’s changing anytime soon.

Horizon Voice Actor Shows What it Was Like to Record During the Pandemic

Voice actor Elle Newlands shared a rather impressive and heart-warming moment on Twitter Tuesday evening. As the voice of Horizon, Newlands had a rather busy summer recording voice lines and even face capture for the character. But with the pandemic. it wasn’t in the studio.

As with most of the world, Newlands was working from home and when you see what she had to do, it’s pretty impressive.

For obvious reasons, she couldn’t share the magical moment when it happened originally. Since the character had yet to be revealed, she waited until now to show the hard work and amazing production that was done from her place in Los Angeles.

Even with what’s going around the world, Newlands and Respawn were able to work together to come up with the brilliant work for Horizon. The newest Legend was a massive hit due to her amazing kit and phenomenal voice acting. While Respawn usually hits the ground stumbling with their new Legends, Horizon was the opposite, seamlessly fitting into the meta while providing some much-needed nuance.

Liquid edge past MAD Lions in BLAST Premier Fall Showdown

Avatar

Published

Liquid won a contested affair against MAD Lions in their first match on European soil since March, when the North Americans last competed in the old continent at IEM Katowice. Jason “⁠moses⁠” O’Toole’s men took the series in three fought-out maps to go through to the next round of the BLAST Premier Fall Showdown, where they will face off against Vito “⁠kNgV-⁠” Giuseppe’s MIBR in the quarter-finals.

Liquid looked poised to take MAD Lions’ map pick, Overpass, winning convincingly on the CT side and hitting double digits before the half, but they were unable to find their pace on the attack, giving up 11 rounds in a row as the Danes took the series lead ahead of Mirage. Jake “⁠Stewie2K⁠” Yip and company then won in-extremis on their pick, 16-14, and came back from the brink of elimination on the decider map, Vertigo, to secure the series.

MAD Lions, now out of BLAST Showdown following their elimination at the hands of Liquid, will look towards the Flashpoint 2 playoffs, where they will play their next match on Monday against Virtus.pro in the opening round of the upper bracket.

Liquid survived MAD Lions thanks to a clinical defense on Vertigo

Michael “⁠Grim⁠” Wince downed four players with the USP in the opening round of Overpass as Liquid went on to take a 5-0 lead, not letting MAD Lions find a way into the map early on. Frederik “⁠acoR⁠” Gyldstrand with three AWP kills and Ismail “⁠refrezh⁠” Ali with a double secured their first round on a B site play, as both teams then started to go back and for nine rounds in a row, with Liquid finally hitting double digits in a 10-5 half. The North American squad were able to win against the forcebuy after securing the second pistol round, but lost to a second forcebuy as MAD Lions rallied, with acoR finding several opening kills and multi-kill rounds on the defense with the AWP in the Danish squad’s 16-12 comeback win.

Liquid started ahead on the attacking side of Mirage, but three Scout kills by acoR in the second round immediately tied things up, prompting MAD Lions to go up 3-1. A huge round from Grim with three kills to turn a 2vs4 around tied things up, 3-3, but the Danes went on to secure the half 9-6. Liquid won the second pistol round without losing a single player, but gave up a costly bomb plant, and a second round save by MAD Lions gave way to a third round full buy, although the Danes weren’t able to capitalize on it as the CTs made it 9-9. A tight half then ensued, going all the way to 30 rounds, but three critical kills by Keith “⁠NAF⁠” Markovic in the last round secured it for Liquid.

Three opening USP kills by Rasmus “⁠sjuush⁠” Beck put MAD Lions in the lead on Vertigo and once again the defending team set the pace, winning six rounds in a row before Liquid could retaliate. MAD Lions didn’t let up, however, winning nine of the first ten rounds prompting Liquid to call an overtime as they saw the series start to slip away. Stewie2K won two clutches in the last two rounds of the half to make it 3-12 before Liquid secured a 5vs5 retake in the second pistol round, getting comfortable on the defense and starting to mount a comeback as MAD Lions hit a wall over and over again. Not a single plant was afforded by Liquid as they took a 13-12 lead. MAD Lions won their first round on the attack to tie things back up, but it was just a one and done as Liquid went on to close the map out 16-13 to survive the first round of the BLAST Premier Fall Showdown bracket.

Endpoint managed to come out on top of the league after a great run in the second part of the regular season, during which they came back from a 0-6 start in the round robin, and the playoffs, where they remained undefeated as they beat Secret, Nexus, sAw, and Sprout.

In the grand final of the 35th season, Surreal‘s squad defeated Sprout, winning the best-of-five with a 3-2 map score (including a map advantage after the team came from the upper bracket) despite a landslide loss on the series opener, Train.

MiGHTYMAX and flameZ will play their first Pro League season next year

The victory sees the United Kingdom-based side reach an important milestone, as the organization is set to make its first appearance in ESL Pro League in the next season, which is currently slated to take place in March-April 2021 in a studio location in Malta.

Joey “⁠CRUC1AL⁠” Steusel and company will join the twelve teams partnered with ESL in the prestigious league’s 13th season as well as North American MDL winners TeamOne and ten other teams, mainly decided via ESL’s world ranking.

The updated team list of the $750,000 competition after Endpoint‘s qualification looks as follows:
