FACEIT is hosting the first Apex Legends tournament officially licensed by Respawn Entertainment and EA Games over the next eight weeks, and fans won’t want to miss out on the action.
Boasting a $50,000 prize pool, the FACEIT Pro Series: Apex Legends tournament will feature 16 teams and some of the biggest names in esports.
The list of participating teams is as follows:
Counter Logic Gaming
The tournament will be played over eight weekly events and will take place in public matches, following a “pub stomp” format seen in previous Apex tournaments like Twitch Rivals and Code Red. In this format, teams will compete for points based on their placement and number of kills in each round.
FACEIT told Dot Esports earlier this week that it will use a “proprietary stat tracking system” that will be featured on the tournament’s official website and broadcasts to feature the tournament’s standings.
The tournament begins today at 4pm CT with its first event before going on a short break until June 14. From there, events will take place weekly and will last for four hours each as competitors battle it out to see who can get the most points.
Fans can catch the action live on www.twitch.tv/faceittv
but streams will also be available from the players’ perspectives on their own respective channels.
