Chronology

Apex 2015 was the 6th installment in the Apex series and was originally scheduled to take place in Secaucus, New Jersey from January 30 to February 1, 2015. Due to venue issues, the event was moved to the Garden State Convention Center in Somerset, New Jersey in the morning of the first day. It was the largest Melee tournament ever by number of players, with 1037 registered entrants, as well as the first Melee tournament with over 1,000 entrants. Apex 2015 featured the largest prize pool recorded in Melee Singles, exceeding $18,000[1], surpassing the previous record holder, 2006 MLG Las Vegas.

PPMD, in his first tournament since EVO 2014, took first place, defeating Armada and his new main Fox 5-3. Other notable placings included the Japanese Yoshi main aMSa at 5th in his best-ever performance in the US, and Mew2King placing outside the top 8 at 9th after losing to Leffen and Shroomed. Leffen also became the first-ever player to defeat all of the Five Gods in tournament with his victory over Mew2King, proving that he could stand among the Gods as one of the best players in the world.
