BoomTV are set to host another of their Code Red tournaments for Apex Legends on March 9 as some of the best streamers and players will do battle for a slice of the $50,000 prize pool.

While there is a competitive scene for Apex Legends esports, many of the high profile tournaments have come through organizers like BoomTV and their Code Red events. 

These events pit content creators against others in a few matches of the battle royale, with a pretty nice prize pool usually on the line. Their March 9 event is set to be no different as 20 teams will hop into the World’s Edge map and look to claim the $15,000 first-place prize. So, here’s everything you need to know about the tournament.

Content creators will team up in Apex Legends trios for a shot at the top prize.

What are the teams for the March 9 Code Red Apex Legends tournament?

As already mentioned, 20 teams of three players will be contesting the March 9 Code Red event. These teams vary in strength and backgrounds – with streamers from both Twitch and Mixer partnering with YouTubers, though not all the streamers are full focused on shooter games.

The standout line-up comes in the form of Dr Disrespect, Shroud, and Bnans. The Doc and Shroud have always been a fierce duo when they’ve teamed up together, and that should be no different here. 

There are also notable trios like LuluLuvely’s team, as she partners with Snipedown and Crowder. There is also Skadoodle’s team – featuring himself, Seagull, and syncedez – and even Nicewigg’s line-up that will see him team up with Daltoosh and Jonny. 

When does the March 9 Code Red Apex Legends event start?

The event is set to kick off on March 9 at 1 pm PST/4 pm EST/8 pm GMT/9 pm CET. Though, with this being an online event, there could be a few technical delays so it is worth keeping that in mind. 

What is the format?

The teams will compete in six rounds of custom matches, with the objective being more about racking up kills than becoming Apex Champions.

Teams will score one point for each kill they pick up, with no placement points on offer. At the end of the six matches, scores will be tallied and the final standings will be set and revealed on the BoomTV event hub

Apex Legends Season 7 start date moved forward one week

After an initial leak and then a change with the Season 6 Battle Pass, it appears that the start date for Apex Legends’ Season 7 start date has been moved up by a week.

Although not officially announced yet by Respawn Entertainment, all indications seem to be pointing to Season 7 kicking off a week earlier than had been originally scheduled.

According to the in-game Battle Pass menu, S7 was initially set to start on November 10, which made sense given the length of a standard Apex Legends season. Now, prominent data-miner ‘Shrugtal’ leaked updated game code that showed the date being changed to November 4.

Following Shrugtal’s tweet, Apex’s Battle Pass menu was adjusted to show that, as of October 21, there were only 14 days left remaining in S6, rather than the 21 that had been displayed earlier the same day.

This all but confirms the date change, which Respawn have not yet explained, although it could be because S6 had been delayed by a week, so this could be the devs wanting to keep subsequent seasons right on schedule rather than all of them also starting a week later.

While this change fixes that issue and also means Apex fans will be able to access Season 7’s content a week earlier, at the same time, they’ll have a week less than originally anticipated to experience everything that Season 6 has to offer.

It makes more sense now that the annual Fight or Fright Halloween-themed event, which starts October 22, is wrapping up on November 3, just in time for the new season to launch.

This change also helps to explain why Respawn have been so teaser-happy recently, putting out voice recordings almost on a daily basis hinting at what’s coming to their prized battle royale in its seventh chapter.

While we don’t know what these recordings mean just yet, since they all seem to be pieces of a larger puzzle, there’s no doubt that the Apex community is getting excited again over that familiarly awesome feeling of new content on the way.

S7 is set to introduce a brand new legend named Horizon and is also expected to add a new machine gun called Predator, although the latter has yet to be confirmed. Of course, players will also have a new battle pass full of content to jump into.
