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 NA region. TSM show once again why they are the team to look at when it comes to Apex Legends in NA. This marks the third major win for TSM winning X-Games, the Apex Legends Preseason Invitational and now the inaugural GLL Apex Legends Series.

The first day of the finals didn’t go too well for the champions other than a massive game 5 win the second day proved to be a much better showing for the team. Just when it seems like TSM may be out they always find their way back. Here’s a look at their game 5 win from day one.
