The inaugural GLL Apex Legends Series for both EMEA and NA kicked off this December 7-8th. 10 teams were invited for both regions while 10 other teams qualified for the series. The finals which were hosted this past weekend on December 14-15th just wrapped up. It was a strong showing for both sides but let’s look at the EMEA region. Plenty of teams showed why they’re at the top when it comes to competitive Apex but Luminosity showed why they were better than everyone else. Over the two days of finals, Luminosity win the inaugural GLL Apex Legends Series for EMEA.
