Fnatic Apex Legends Team ALGS Bootcamp in London

Fnatic’s Apex Legends team has landed in London and will begin their Pre-Apex Legends Global Series (ALGS) Bootcamp at the Red Bull Gaming Sphere this week.

Despite being a London-headquartered organization, Fnatic’s Apex Legends team has made its home in Japan. However, it’s about time they headed to the UK ahead of the ALGS Split 1 Playoffs, which are being held at the Copperbox Arena in London.

Their roster for Japan’s Apex Legends Takamasa “Meltstera” Kawai, Juga “YukaF” Horie, Keita “MatsuTasu” Matsuura, and Trainer Hiroki “Kamaneko” Kimoto will compete in the APAC North region, which covers Northeast Asia, and will be held in Tokyo.

The team rejoined the Apex Legends scene effective immediately in 2022, with Fnatic finishing fourth at the July 2022 ALGS Championship in Raleigh.

They are currently in impressive form going into the ALGS London LAN which is due to start on February 2nd 2023. Fnatic finished Split 1 of the Pro League at the top of their region after a confident performance in the second half of 2022.

Located just around the corner from Fnatic’s London HQ, the Red Bull Gaming Sphere will host the roster leading up to LAN.

Several other teams from around the world are beginning to land in London for the Global Series, including TSM who are rumored to be joining them at the Red Bull Gaming Sphere this week.

Several venues will host Apex Legends pros ahead of February, including SideQuest’s stores, which will host both Allianz and Alliance, who have also shown impressive skills in their region.

ALGS controversy ahead of LAN – Some teams are struggling to secure visas ahead of the Global Series

ALGS Apex Legends LAN

While teams such as Fnatic and The Guard have already confirmed their arrival in London, others have had significant difficulties securing visas ahead of the start of the event in early February.

Ameer ‘VJEIX’ Hassan of EMEA team VZN was only able to confirm his visa on January 23, less than two weeks before the start of the event. They were still awaiting confirmation until Jan. 21, leading some professionals and fans to question EA’s decisions regarding location announcements.

Last month, EA officially announced that the ALGS Split 1 Playoffs would be held at Copperbox Arena in February, giving fans a few months to make arrangements. Ticket sales went on sale 24 hours after the announcement.

In particular, EMEA team Pioneers’ Maksym “Max-Strafe” Stadniuk has confirmed that he will not be taking his team to the LAN in February as he has not received permission to leave his native country of Ukraine due to the Russian military invasion. Despite questioning if more time could be agreed, Pioneers have confirmed that he will be replaced by Furia Esports’ Scott “Pandxrz” Maynard.
