UPDATE – The Twitch Rivals Apex Legends Rematch Challenge has now been completed – full recap, final standings, video highlights, MVP announcement, and more!

The second set of qualifiers for the Twitch Rivals Apex Legends Challenge are less than a day away, and we’re here to make sure you don’t miss a second of the action.

Twitch and Respawn Entertainment have partnered up to host a massive Twitch Rivals Apex Legends Challenge tournament in the upcoming TwitchCon Europe event in Berlin, Germany.

The first of two qualifiers for this Challenge already took place on March 21, and here is everything you need to know about the second qualifier, called Apex Legends Rematch Challenge, which will be played on April 2.

Full schedule for Twitch Rivals Apex Legends Rematch Challenge 

The Twitch Rivals Apex Legends Rematch Challenge qualifier tournament will be split into two parts – the first half for the European region and the second for North America.

The first round of the EU tournament will officially start at 9:15 AM PT / 12:15 PM PT / 6:15 PM CET, while the NA tournament’s first round will kick off at 1:30 PM PT / 4:30 PM ET / 6:30 PM CET.

The full schedule breakdowns for both tournaments, including the start times for all three rounds and the finale, can be seen below:

Twitch Rivals will be providing a live leaderboard with scores and records for both the EU and NA halves of the Twitch Rivals Apex Legends Rematch Challenge, available via the links below:

Players and teams in Twitch Rivals Apex Legends Rematch Challenge 

This qualifier tournament will feature 96 streamers from Europe and North America who have been invited to compete by Twitch, and you can check out the ones that have been announced so far.

The names of all the participating players and teams will be added here as they get announced by Twitch Rivals leading up to the tournament. 

Official format used in Twitch Rivals Apex Legends Rematch Challenge 

While the official format for this qualifier tournament has not yet been announced, it’s probably safe to assume it will use the same format as the previous qualifier.

In the previous qualifier, each region’s tournament featured four rounds of swiss-style competition, with matched-up teams playing two games of Apex Legends against each other per round.

Since there are no custom servers yet, these games involved the teams separately loading into public matches and trying to score as many points as possible based on the following scoring system:

  • 1st place = 10 points
  • 2nd place = 5 points
  • 3rd place = 4 points
  • 4th place = 3 points
  • 5th place = 2 points
  • Kill = 1 point

In each match-up, the teams who managed to score more points than their opponents after the two maps got the match victory, and after four rounds, the team that finishes with four wins and zero losses will be crowned champions. 

Since there are no custom matches yet in Apex Legends, teams have to try and outdo each other in public matches.

Apex Legends Holo-Day Bash 2020: Start date, skins, Winter Express LTM

It’s almost that time of year again, and Apex Legends’ second holiday season is about to get into full swing. Holo-Day Bash is set to return for 2020, with all new skins, and a rerun of the Winter Express LTM.

To keep up with the yearly festivities, the first event of Apex Legends Season 7 will be holiday-themed – this we know thanks to some badges that have already confirmed the 2020 Holo-day bash ahead of an official announcement from Respawn.

The exact same thing happened with this year’s Fight or Fright event, for Halloween, which was also revealed early due to in-game badges that couldn’t be unlocked yet.

So, if you’re wondering when Holo-day Bash 2020 starts and ends, what kind of cosmetics will be available, and what mode to expect, here’s everything we know so far.

When is Holo-Day Bash 2020 in Apex Legends?

The Holo-Day bash will start on December 1, and run through until January 4.

Holo-Day Bash 2020 update time

The update is expected to go live at 10AM PT / 1PM ET / 6PM GMT. There’s no patch to come with it, so there won’t be any big downloads to worry about.

Badges for Holo-Day Bash 2020 are already visible in Apex Legends.

Unlike last year though, this is not a Collection event. Instead, like Fight or Fright, Holo-Day Bash 2020 is just a Themed event. That means there won’t be a new Heirloom to unlock, whereas last year,  Pathfinder’s boxing gloves could be unlocked by completing the collection.

Apex Legends Holo-Day Bash 2020 trailer

On November 24, Respawn Entertainment revealed a brand new trailer for the event.

Just because it’s not a collection event though, doesn’t mean there won’t be new skins and cosmetics to get your hands on. The trailer showed off nine in total, from what we could see.

These skins will be available in bundles in the Item Shop from December 1, seen below.

There’s also an event prize tracker, which you will be able to complete through challenges.

Winter Express LTM

Speaking of challenges, you’ll want to complete these in the “new-and-improved” Winter Express LTM.

For those who didn’t play last year, Winter Express takes place on World’s Edge, with Mirage as the game announcer. The objective is to win control of the train over three rounds. And there’s no loot – instead, Legends are given preset loadouts.

On the event, they said in a blog post: “This year, when your squad respawns after a round has finished, you will spawn on your own supply ship as it follows the train. From here, your squad will be able to survey the battlefield and skydive into combat as the train arrives at its next station and the objective unlocks. The squad that won the previous round will respawn directly on the train.

Respawn Hover Tanks

In the trailer, new Respawn Hover Tanks could also be seen, seen below.

These will follow along with the train, and your team will respawn and jump from these back down into the action at the start of each round – unless you won the previous round, in which case, you’ll start on the train.
