How the Apex Legends Global Series Works
Online Tournaments: This is your entry point into the Apex Legends Global Series. By performing well in our official Online Tournaments on PC, you can earn Apex Legends Global Series Points and qualify for live events. These online tournaments will be powered by Battlefy.
Challenger Events: These live events give local talent an opportunity to shine. They will focus on regional competitions throughout the Apex Legends competitive gaming population and award the winners with a reserved spot in the upcoming Major.
Premier Events: These are global live events pitting the top online competitors from each global region against one another. Top Premier Event performers will earn increased Apex Legends Global Series Points and advanced placement invitations to Majors. These events will be sponsored and operated by PGL and GLL.
Majors: Our flagship EA live events. This is where the best teams around the world compete for the largest prize pools throughout the year. The winners of the Apex Legends Majors have the right to call themselves the best players in the world.
More About the Majors
There will be four Majors during the Apex Legends Global Series. The first three Majors will feature 300 players (100 three-player teams) competing for a $500k prize pool. The fourth Major is the Apex Legends Global Series Championship, where only the top 60 Global Series teams are invited to compete for a prize pool of $1 million.
Each Major will culminate with a Finals incorporating the innovative Apex Legends Match Point system, first revealed at the Apex Legends Preseason Invitational in Poland earlier this year. In the Match Point system, teams must reach a predetermined Points threshold to activate Match Point. The tournament ends when a team that has activated Match Point wins a match and becomes the Apex Legends Champions.
We have a passionate community all over the world, so we’re taking this show on the road. The first three events in the Apex Legends Global Series are:
- January 25 and 27, 2020: Online Tournament – Qualifying for Major #1
- February 29 and March 2, 2020: Online Tournament – Qualifying for Premier Event #1
