Posted : 18 March 2024

The 2024 Apex Legends Global Series (ALGS) Regional Finals for North America took a troubling turn when a significant hacking incident occurred during a live match, prompting Apex Legends publisher EA to postpone the remainder of the competition.


During the ALGS NA Pro League Split 1 finals, professional players Noyan ‘Genburten’ Ozkose from DarkZero and Phillip ‘ImperialHal’ Dosen from TSM were seemingly targeted by hackers who remotely enabled cheats on their game clients, leading to confusion among the players and ultimately the termination of the game by tournament administrators.


The incident, which occurred on March 18th, has raised concerns about the competitive integrity of the tournament, as the hacks compromised the fairness of the gameplay. The source and nature of the hack have yet to be fully determined, leaving organizers and participants alike grappling with uncertainty regarding the next steps for the ALGS North American Regional Finals.


This unprecedented event has broader implications for esports integrity, particularly in regard to betting markets and viewer trust. Given the live nature of the tournament, the hacking incident could have ramifications across various sectors, underscoring the importance of maintaining robust security measures in esports competitions.


As the esports landscape continues to expand, incidents like these underscore the need for enhanced security protocols to safeguard competitive integrity and ensure a fair and enjoyable experience for players and fans alike. The postponement of the NA finals underscores the seriousness of the situation and the commitment of organizers to address the issue before resuming the competition.
