If you thought Day 1 of the Apex Legends: Preseason Invitational was filled with amazing gameplay then you must take a look into Day 2 of the Preseason Invitational. Today was filled with the Loser’s Brackets teams looking to secure themselves a spot in the finals. There were plenty of upsets, surprise turn arounds and breakout stars of today’s matches.  In the Loser’s Brackets teams played their hearts out to avoid being eliminated from the tournament to fight another day and hopefully play in the Loser’s Final to secure that Top 10 spot to advance to the Losers Finals on the last day of the tournament while we also witnessed the Winners Final to secure their Top 10 spot in the Grand Finals as well.

Winners Bracket Results

We saw a Best of 4 series to determine the Top 10 teams to advance to the Grand Finals on September 15.

Round 1

We saw 789 dominate this first game with Xaniya, from 789, take the win with a 1v3 to close out the first game. He was also the MVP getting an astonishing 8 kills this game while 789 ended the round with 13 kills.



Rankings for the top 4 in this game are as follows:

  1. 789
  2. k1ck
  3. PENTA
  4. Ringers

Round 2

Game 2 of the series saw another stellar performance from 789 with Xaniya being the MVP from his team again as the last player to survive from 789 to make it to the top 4. In what was a tight circle Sentinels had the high ground almost being taken out by 789 while both FlyQuest and GamersOrigin were fighting in a compound while the circle enclosed on them. Sentinels ended up being the surviving team this round.

Rankings for the top 4 in this game are as follows:

  1. Sentinels
  2. FlyQuest
  3. GamersOrigin
  4. 789

Round 3

Game 3 of the series ended up being a more alert and slower game than the previous two with teams marking their areas, preparing for rotations and exit strategies. While most action wasn’t seen until the last 2-3 circles we got to witness some stellar technical gameplay from NRG and SoaR. Action was intense as 789 also made their presence known again with a whopping 10 kills but it wasn’t enough as both Misfits and SoaR finished above 789 with SoaR taking the game with most kills at 13 and also setting the record for the night with most damage in the game at 2161 damage dealt.

Rankings for the top 4 in this game are as follows:

  1. SoaR
  2. Misfits
  3. 789
  4. Virtus.Pro

It is also worth noting that Misfits secured 2nd place without any kills going to show anything can happen in this tournament.

Round 4

Game 4 of the series ended up being the most cautious game of the night with almost all 20 teams still alive, minus a few players from a few teams that were downed early on, and most of the action taking place again in the last 2-3 circles. Misfits showed up in this game ending 2nd with 7 kills more than making up for their performance in Game 3 as well as TSM showing up in 3rd pace with 8 kills. Virtus.Pro ended up taking first in the last game of the series securing themselves a Top 10 spot in the Grand Finals.

Rankings for the top 4 in this game are as follows:

  1. Virtus.Pro
  2. Misfits
  3. Team SoloMid
  4. PENTA

This was the first game that 789 did not place top 4 but placed 10th however it is safe to say 789 will make their presence known in the Grand Finals tomorrow being one of the few teams no one had really heard of coming into the tournament but making a statement. They are currently unsigned and after their performance will most likely be picked up soon.

The standings for the Top 10 spots are as follows:

  1. 789
  2. FlyQuest
  3. k1ck eSports Club
  4. Misfits
  5. NRG
  6. PENTA
  7. Sentinels
  8. SoaR
  9. Team SoloMid
  10. Virtus.Pro

The Losers Bracket Finals and Grand Finals are set for September 15 with the Top 10 spots in the Losers Bracket Finals securing their spots in the 11th-20th spots in the Grand Finals. You can watch on Twitch, YouTube, Mixer starting at 1 pm CEST/7am PDT.
