Apex Legends Global Series

The Apex Legends Global Series eSports competition has been postponed by its organizers when it appeared that two players during the North American finals had been hacked while participating in different games. Respawn Entertainment and Electronic Arts, the publishers of the shooter game, revealed the game’s closure on social media on Sunday night after professional players received unwanted cheat codes while they were competing.

Due to the competitive integrity of this series being compromised, we have made the decision to postpone the NA (North American) finals at this time. We will share more information soon,” Apex Legends eSports wrote on X, formerly Twitter. Players ImperialHal and Genburten shared videos to social media that showed them being forced to utilise cheat tools and hacking tools that are banned from being used in eSports competition and could result in suspensions.

In a wallhack when rivals get highlighted on maps even when they should be hidden behind walls and other objects, one cheat program permits a player to observe opponents. The security program that some players believed had been compromised by hackers, Easy-Anti Cheat (EAC), revealed on X on Monday that they had investigated the issue.
