Apex Legends Global Series Is An International Tournament With A $3 Million Prize Pool
Which nation will rise to the apex?
Apex Legends is closing out a huge 2019 with the announcement of the Global Series, a new esports program where players from all over the world will compete against each other for a $3 million prize pool. Registration will open in January, and qualifiers will happen online. The Global Series will be played across the PC version of the game.
Players who qualify during the online rounds will move onto one of 12 live events, and eventually the top players from over 60 countries will compete in the Apex Legends Global Series Majors. The first three of these will see 100 three-person squads competing against each other, and the fourth will be the grand finale, where just 60 players will compete.
The winners of the Majors will be dictated by the Match Point system used in the Apex Legends Preseason Invitational earlier this year. This system has players scoring points for both kills and match placement, competing to hit a certain threshold to pass through to the next round.
The first online tournament will begin on January 25, 2020, and registration will open up earlier that month. The first Major will be held at the Esports Stadium in Arlington, Virginia, and will run from March 13 to 15, 2020.
