Week two of the first ever large-scale tournament for Apex Legends is set to kick off on February 19, once again featuring some of the biggest names in the online gaming community.
Organized by Twitch Rivals and developers Respawn Entertainment, the Apex Legends Challenge, as it's called, features many of the world's most prominent streamers and a massive $200,000 prize pool.
The tournament is split between Europe and North America, with a $100,000 in total prize money made available in the tournaments of each region.
The Twitch Rivals Apex Legends Challenge features four tournaments in total - two for EU and two for NA, played on February 12 and 19 respectively.
The February 12 EU tournament was won by Team MANE, while the King's Canyon team of Ninja, KingRichard, and Dizzy won the NA event by the slimmest of margins.
The EU half of the second challenge will kick off at 9 AM PT / 12 PM ET / 5 PM GMT on February 19 and will be followed by the NA half at 1 PM PT / 4 PM ET / 9 PM GMT, also on the same day.
There will be a central broadcast for this competition on the official Twitch Rivals channel, which we will include below, along with the streams of many of the competitors who will be streaming on their own channels as well.
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.
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:
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:
