Live bracket and scores
BoomTV is providing a live bracket for this tournament available via the link below. The bracket will be regularly updated each round and will include live scores.
Format and rules
The March 1 Code Red is a double-elimination tournament featuring eight teams of three players each.
Since custom matchmaking is not yet publicly available in Apex Legends, teams matched up against each other in the bracket have to load into separate public matches and try to score as many points possible, based on the following format:
- Wins = +8 points
- Kills = +1 point
Three maps will be played per match, and if there is a tie in points after the three maps, a fourth map will be played. In case of a tie after the fourth map, the last tiebreaker will be total damage dealt, and if that is also even, then the process will get repeated for a fifth map and so forth.
Teams and players
As mentioned above, there are a total of eight teams participating in this week’s Code Red Apex Legends tournament, with each team having three players.
