What is the ALGS?

The ALGS is the competitive esports tournament for Apex Legends where pros compete against each other in the battle royale for a huge prize pool.

The ALGS has had its playoffs and is now holding the Championship in May, where the players were originally playing for a huge $1 million prize pool.

You can get more information on the dates, teams, and standings for the ALGS on their website.

The bundle skins are in the store now, with every purchase contributing towards the Championship prize pool for the high-profile competition for the fan-favorite battle royale. The bundles include a Legendary skin, epic weapon charm, and epic banner frame.

The bundles are available for Octane, Fuse, Pathfinder, and Caustic. Each bundle costs 2,500 Apex Coins, but there is also an Animal Kingdom bundle for 9,000 Apex Coins, including all four of the bundles.

Respawn will add $5 to the ALGS Championship prize pool for every bundle purchased and a further $20 for every Animal Kingdom bundle sold. This could put the prize pool upwards to about $3, a great way to get players and the developers to support those who put so much time into the game and aid the community in coming together to help create a truly worthwhile event.

Apex Legends players call for major nerf to Valkyrie’s ultimate

Apex Legends players are calling for a major nerf to Valkyrie’s ultimate Skyward Dive ability, claiming its Scanning is too powerful..

Valkyrie in Apex Legends

Valkyrie’s ultimate ability Skydive lets her launch 180m into the air, allowing for easy rotations. Now, Apex Legends players are calling for this ability to be nerfed, claiming the scanning portion of this ability is too powerful.

Apex Legends features 19 different characters to choose from, all of whom come with their own unique set of skills. One popular Legend is Valkyrie, who is able to soar through the sky during battles.

She is one of the most-picked Legends in Season 11. Now, Season 12 is approaching fast and players are asking for Respawn Entertainment to nerf to her famous Skyward Dive ability.

Valkyrie's VTOL jets

Valkyrie’s Skyward Dive ability in Apex Legends lets the character and her teammates soar across the map while scanning for players on the ground. This informs them whether or not it’s safe to land in that area.

At the time of writing, this is one of the only scanning abilities in the game that doesn’t provide notifications to opponents who have been caught in it. This has caused many players to call for a change.

Reddit user ‘3KeyReasons’ brought up this issue in the Apex Legends subreddit. They suggested that Respawn add a “Skydive Detected” notification that will warn you about Valkyrie’s ultimate.

One user brought up that Valkyrie’s ultimate needs a line of sight to scan players, but they agreed with the Redditor’s suggestion: “This feature would be better. It would at least make us aware that a 3rd party is jumping on our heads.”

This change would certainly make it much easier to stay out of the way of Valkyrie’s Skyward Dive ability. Currently, it’s unknown whether or not Respawn will choose to implement this feature in the game.

Published

on

Season 11 of Apex Legends has tons of characters to choose from to enjoy its several maps. But who has the top Season 11 pick rates in Respawn Entertainment’s battle royale shooter?

Apex Legends hit the ground running when it launched with eight different characters to choose from in its battle royale offering. The game suffered a notable lull when Call of Duty: Warzone launched, but with many players jumping ship to Respawn’s game in Season 10, Apex Legends Season 11 has benefited from continued support from gamers and streamers alike.

There are now a whopping 19 different Legends to choose from, giving players a headache before each game. The newest one is Ash, she debuted alongside the new Storm Point map.

Between the Arenas mode and Ranked Leagues to compete in, thousands of matches have already been logged in Season 11, and we will break down and find the Legends with the highest pick rates in Season 11.

Apex Legends Season 11 pick rate ranked list

This is our complete list of every character pick in Apex Legends, and we’ve ranked them in order to let you know which are favored.

Here is every Apex Legends pick rate in Season 11 ranked, as of January 18, 2022, according to Apex Legends Status:

  1. Wraith – 12.9%
  2. Octane – 12.4%
  3. Bloodhound – 9.6%
  4. Pathfinder – 8.6%
  5. Valkyrie – 7.5%
  6. Lifeline – 5.5%
  7. Ash – 5.4%
  8. Bangalore – 5.1%
  9. Loba – 4.5%
  10. Horizon – 4.4%
  11. Fuse – 4.1%
  12. Caustic – 3.9%
  13. Gibraltar – 3.7%

Most picked Legends in Apex Legends Season 11

5. Valkyrie – 7.5%

With Ash being knocked out of the top 5 most picked Legends since her release at the start of Season 11, Valkyrie has officially taken her spot with a 7.5% pick rate.

Valkyrie is great in Season 11, with unbelievable mobility thanks to her passive Jet Pack. This allows her to reposition and get in and out of situations with ease, arguably having the best potential to survive out of all Legends due to great mobility.

Valkyrie’s Ultimate is great for maps like Storm Point, as there are no Jump Towers and so her Skyward Dive offers useful rotations. Her Ultimate is great for getting the team into a spot for final circles, as you’ll be able to fly above and past enemy teams rotating into the zone.

4. Pathfinder – 8.6%

Pathfinder has consistently been one of Apex Legends’ top five picks at 8.6%, and counting, for quite some time now.

As a Recon class, Pathfinder simply excels in movements and traversing the game’s various maps. His Grappling Hook and Zipline Gun are simply invaluable assets that will help any team in a pinch – either because of the circle or a third-party situation. He consistently manages to stay in the top 5 as a result.

3. Bloodhound – 9.6%

Again, with the influx of new Apex Legends players, Bloodhound is a great character to use for new players in Season 11.

Bloodhound nearly always stays in and around the 8-11% mark as a season goes on, and they currently stand at 9.6%. They are easily the top Recon class to use in Apex Legends, thanks to their tracking tools and incredible skills, plus, their Beast of the Hunt Ultimate is priceless.

2. Octane – 12.4%

With a 12.4% pick rate, the speed demon takes the number two spot, continuing his reign as one of the most popular Legends in Season 11, fluctuating between the top two places.

Aside from his amusing quips, he is the perfect balance of offense and defense. Despite being regarded as an offensive Legend, Octane can greatly increase his sprint speed which is useful for both attack and running away.

But most Octane users thrive on his Launch Pad Ultimate which can send him, and friendly players, high up into the air.

1. Wraith – 12.9% Most picked Legend in Apex Legends Season 11

apex legends wraith character

Another starting Legend, Wraith has been a consistent pick throughout Apex Legends’ lifetime, and she has taken the number one spot with a whopping 12.6% pick rate in Season 11.

Wraith’s stand-out features are her ability to get out of trouble very quickly – teammates included. Her abilities allow her to sense danger, become temporarily invulnerable, and create portals to escape predicaments. It’s easy to see why Wraith continues to be an absolute fan-favorite in Apex Legends Season 11.


That covers all the picks in Apex Legends Season 11. As always, buffs and nerfs will come and go throughout the season, altering the game’s meta, and subsequently, Legend pick rates.

We’ll be sure to keep this updated regularly so you can stay on top of the in picks and don’t forget to check out leaks for the Apex Legends Season 12 collection event.
