For the upcoming Twitch Rivals Apex Legends Challenge, Twitch announced its partnership with Respawn Entertainment. This exciting tournament will showcase 48 of the best and most popular game streamers to compete for $200,000 worth of prizes.
Twitch Rivals Apex Legends Challenge Won’t Follow E-Sports Structure
Twitch Rivals Apex Legends teams will be separated into two groups namely: Europe and North America. In addition, all the streamers in each region have the chance to win $100,000 prize money which makes the game more intense and highly anticipated.
The said event is expected to follow a different structure than the traditional e-sports. Apparently, the game will go like this:
Players from each region go solo which makes the concept of teams invalid. They will play and queue separately then battle against each player in a random way while earning kills and wins.
The Twitch Rivals Apex Legends tournament will finally commence tomorrow February 12, 2019, and it will last until February 19. In Europe, the first set of the challenge will start on February 12 9 AM PT/12 PM EST and later, it will be followed by the NA part at 1 PM PT/4 PM EST.
In each region, there will be eight teams composed of three players. So, each player in a team has to queue online separately in order to earn points as much as they can within a 4-hour time frame. One win is equivalent to five points while one kill will make a team earn 1 point. This point system will be the basis of how the teams will earn their points.
Notable Players to Attend the Twitch Rivals Apex Legends Challenge
While there is still no announcement about the official players who will be joining the tournament, here is a list of popular streamers said to be joining the competition:
To watch the event, you can either head directly to your favorite streamers channel who will be competing in the most awaited tournament or watch it on the website twitch.tv under twitchrivals.
Surprisingly, the battle royale game Apex Legends has been released for less than a month. However, it is now offering a massive tournament for streamers to join.
The tournament offers a very enticing prize which makes us expect an intense battle for two days. And since there will be four games all in all in the tournament, each player will have $50,000 prize money.
After the game, the final ranking of the teams will be displayed on a leaderboard which will be based accurately on the points each team earns. Each rank has an equivalent prize that will be awarded to all the players of the winning teams.
