Earlier this year all Apex Legends esports activities were moved online in light of the coronavirus pandemic, therefore, the Autumn Circuit will be divided into several regions. Despite the changes, organizers have pledged $3 million in prize money for 2020. ALGS has also created an entirely cloud-based production system that was implemented in March.
Crazy Raccoon, DeToNator, EXO Clan, Gambit Esports, Lava City Boys, Millions Gaming, MiTH Team 1, and Team SoloMid have stood out during the Summer Circuit so it remains to be seen if they can maintain the momentum during the Autumn Circuit.
Based on the feedback received during the Summer Circuit, organizers have made several changes. Going forward, all Regional and Super Regional Finals will have six games, with the exception of the Playoffs, which use the Match Point format.
The Super Regional Playoffs will be divided into the following regions: EMEA – Europe, Middle East & Africa, Americas – North America, South America, APAC South – Greater Southeast Asia, Australia & New Zealand, and APAC North – Japan, Korea.
The Autumn Circuit kicks off soon. To compete, Week 1’s Regional tournaments begin on October 3, with registration beginning on September 22. Registration is open to all eligible players who have achieved Gold IV Rank on PC, in Series 5 Split 1, by 12 PM PT on October 1. Register here.
