Apex Legends Pro ImperialHal Refuses to Kill Disconnected Player During $2 Million ALGS Championship

As one of the best competitive battle royale games, Apex Legends has many talented professional players who compete and often stream their gameplay regularly. Recently, many of the top stars in the game have gathered to compete in the latest Apex Legends Global Series (ALGS) Championship, a LAN event. One of the most popular of the pro players in attendance is ImperialHal.

As part of the esports organization TSM, ImperialHal has made a name for itself playing Apex Legends since the Battle Royale was released in 2019. For the past few months, he has consistently streamed his gameplay to thousands of viewers on Twitch while working with Verhulst and Reps, fellow TSM members. While the pro is known for his competitive intensity, he was also recently praised for his athleticism.

While competing in the ALGS Championship event on Saturday, ImperialHal and his teammates encountered an unusual situation during one of their matches on the World’s Edge map. On his way to the train tracks just outside Fragment East, the pro player saw an opponent standing in the open, not moving. ImperialHal quickly realized that the enemy player had probably lost connection and yelled at his teammates not to fire. TSM then backed away from the player and left them alone instead of attacking them.

The unusual circumstance of this event is certainly remarkable. While it’s not known how other pros would have handled the situation, as there doesn’t seem to be a rule prohibiting players from killing unrelated opponents, it’s still refreshing to see a gamer displaying sportsmanship to his fellow competitors in the game. in the middle of a match. In addition, it is worth noting that the ALGS Championship includes a $2 million prize pool, making this decision to spare the AFK player even more striking as it could have affected TSM’s chances of winning the event.

Since ImperialHal made this decision not to kill the unrelated player, numerous fans have commented on the situation. Among the comments, most fans were impressed by the professional player’s sportsmanship during a high-stakes match, with many tweeting their support. In fact, ImperialHal has since commented on its own in-game decision. “It’s the least any player here can do with these issues,” the pro player noted, probably referring to the connectivity issues in Season 13 of Apex Legends.

Fortunately, ImperialHal’s show of sportsmanship did not compromise his team’s chances of winning the ALGS event. ImperialHal, along with fellow TSM squadmates Reps and Verhulst, still managed to advance to the championship round of ALGS taking place today. Time will tell if TSM or any of the other top competitive teams will take home the top prize. Regardless of which team wins, hopefully there will be no connectivity issues in Apex Legends during the grand finals for the sake of the contestants.

Apex Legends is now available for mobile, PC, PS4, PS5, Switch, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X/S.
