Players

This competition features 60 well-known Twitch streamers - 30 from North America and 30 from Europe. The full list of teams and players for each region can be seen in the graphics below.



Format

Since private and custom matchmaking is not yet available in Apex Legends, this tournament will be taking place in online public lobbies.

Each region's tournament will feature ten teams of three players separately loading into public matches over the course of two two-hour periods and trying to score as many points as they can.

Teams will have unlimited tries within the time periods, and the scoring system will be based on the following criteria:

  • Match Victory = 10 points
  • 2nd or 3rd place = 5 points
  • 4th or 5th place = 3 points
  • Kills = 1 points



Prize Breakdown

The Apex Legends Challenge features a $200,000 prize pool in total, $100,000 going to each of the two regions. Since there will be four competitions in total (two for NA, two for EU), each tournament will have $50,000 in prize money. 

Teams will be placed on a leaderboard based on the amount of points they manage to earn during the four-hour competition, and each position on the leaderboard has a designated amount of prize money that will be awarded to the players of that team. 

In addition to the leaderboard prize money, there will also be monetary bonuses awarded to teams who manage to meet certain objectives:

  • Highest overall Legend Kill Count (if players are tied, who achieved it first is declared the winner): $1000 per Legend
  • First team to summon Nessie and win the game (Easter Egg): $3000
  • First team to win matches using every legend: $3000
