Apex Legends is a free-to-play battle royale game developed by Respawn Entertainment and published by Electronic Arts. Released on February 4, 2019, it is currently one of the most popular games on Twitch. Eight hours after its launch, the game surpassed 1 million unique players, and by the end of its first month it reached 50 million players.
Team AMD (Apex Legends squad) consists of Anton “Coollerz” Singov, Eugene “iLame” Pechtelev, Alexander “KTVSKY” Leshkov. The squad participated in Twitch Rivals Europe qualifying stage (Road To TwitchCon), along with 16 teams, winning the slot in the finals. Coollerz was recognized as the most valuable player in that tournament.
Coollerz is heading the team as a professional Quake and Overwatch player with 20 years of experience. He began competing when he was 13 years old and won several world championships, such as the ESWC 2003 and ESWC 2005. When Quake 4 was released in November 2005, Coollerz was believed to be the undisputed number one worldwide for over half a year and remains one of the strongest players to date.
