Since custom matchmaking is not yet publicly available in Apex Legends, teams matched up against each other in the bracket have to load into three separate public matches and try to score as many points possible, based on the following format:
- Wins = +8 points
- Kills = +1 point
If the points are tied after the three maps, the tiebreaker will go to the team with the more victories and then more total damage dealt throughout all three maps. If the points are still tied, the match will go to a fourth map, after which the same tiebreakers will apply.
