Now, the tournament is coming back to TwitchCon and it's bigger than ever as over $1 million is up for grabs and for the first time, it's open to more than just Twitch Partners.
What games are involved?
Over the course of three days, each game will be represented with, beginning first with Fortnite, then day two bundles League of Legends and Teamfight Tactics together, and finally things conclude with Apex Legends on the final day.
How are the winnings split?
With four games and over $1 million of winners available, there's a lot of ways players can cash out.
Of that total, $500,000 is going to Apex Legends alone, but the rest of the splits have not yet been revealed by Twitch. No matter what way you slice it, over $500,000 being split between three games is going to be a good chunk of change.
