Welcome to the most comprehensive guide about the competitive side of Apex Legends. Here you will learn about all major and minor tournaments for this game and how they work. On top of that, we’ll help you find the best tournament that you can join and possibly win!
Apex Legends has a very competitive nature, which is why its Esports scene is thriving today. However, for an untempted mind, it is very hard to make sense of countless competitions and organizations that sponsor them. So today is the day to delve deeper into this topic and see how these tournaments are structured. Not only that but also, you will learn how can you join a real professional Apex Legends tournament organized by Legionfarm yourself and compete for real money and other prizes!
First of all, it would be necessary to split all tournaments into two categories:
With this classification, it is way easier to tell which is which. And so, let us begin by introducing you to the largest esports event of this game - the Apex Legends Global Series championship, or ALGS for short.
ALGS is called an event because, in essence, it isn’t just one tournament but rather a series. These events are scheduled throughout the entire year, so fans will never be left without a spectacle. For pro players, it means more chances to make it to the top.ALGS is structured in a way that allows all players to try and make a name for themselves. It all starts with online matches, free for everyone who wishes to make a name for themselves.
Let’s wrap this bit up with some information regarding the Year 2 of ALGS. This time, the tournament will bring together console and PC players together, thanks to the cross-play compatibility. The overall prize pool for the entire thing will be 5,000,000$. There’s a Challenger Circuit Point System in place. Every competitor gets awarded with points based on their team’s performance, and placement during the qualifying rounds called the Preseason Qualifiers, also known as the Challenger Circuit. However, starting from the Pro League, the rewards are changed to something real - money. Thus, the team that gets 1st place in the Pro League will take away 30,000$. The Playoffs winners will get 250,000$. Finally, the ALGS Champions will bring 500,000$ with them.
Both EA and Respawn Entertainment being the official organizers for their tournament series known as ALGS, understand the need and passion for gamers and community members to join or organize their own tournaments. Therefore, EA fully supports the alternative Esports events for Apex Legends, as long as they follow the established Community Tournament Guidelines.
With that being said, there’re lots of Esports event organizers out there, and all of them see the potential profit of working with this game. So, how do you tell these numerous championships apart? It’s best to think of all of them in tiers.
Now that we have our tier list in place let’s put some names on it.
And now let’s talk about these events in more detail to see how they compare to the official one. We’ll be trying to follow these criteria, but keep in mind that based on the size of any given tournament and its budget, not everything will be mentioned.
Let us start with the first A-Tier tournament organized by Blast - the global esports media network. Their primary service is to deliver studio-grade broadcasts, shows, and events on various digital platforms.
