The Biggest, The Coolest

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:

  1. Those tournaments are sponsored by Electronic Arts and Respawn Entertainment itself. Let’s call them the official ones.
  2. Those tournaments are sponsored by other Esports organizations, which are not related to EA in any capacity. Let’s call these - community tournaments.

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.

Introducing The One and Only Official Tournament in Apex Legends

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.

  • Challenger Circuit - gamers can create a team and sign up for one of these so-called “open competitions for future PROs.”
  • The Pro League series features 40 best ALGS from across the world that compete for a spot in the Playoffs live event.
  • The Playoff event will decide which teams will be able to compete for the champions title. But it also has a solid prize pool of 1,000,000$.
  • The Championship - is the biggest event of the year where the winners of the previous rounds compete for a whopping 2,000,000$ prize and a title of ALGS Champions.

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.


Community Tournaments

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.

  • S-tier - the tournaments from this tier has the largest prize pool, feature the best teams across the world. So, far ALGS is the only S-tier tournament.
  • A-tier - features a large prize pool and a good amount of top-tier teams.
  • B-tier - is regarded to smaller LAN events and large online tournaments with top teams.
  • C-tier - lowest-ranked events, which are always played online with almost no pro teams joining them.
  • Show matches - matches or tournaments that consist of mixed teams of pro players and influencers.
