Apex Legends Global Series to Resume From 12th March
Apex Legends Global Series (ALGS) was put on hold due to the ongoing conflict between Russia and Ukraine. Respawn Entertainment announced earlier today that it will be resuming the competition in all regions except Europe, the Middle East, and Africa (EMEA). Matches will resume for North America, Asia Pacific (APAC) North, and APAC South starting 12th March.
Apex Legends Global Series Overview
Apex Legends Global Series is offering a prize pool of $5 million USD this year with a world championship event. This will be the first year that we see a world champion being crowned in Apex Legends. But with the ongoing conflict between Ukraine and Russia, and the EMEA circuit being put on hold indefinitely, we don’t know if the international LAN events will be held on their scheduled dates.
Once the ALGS event resumes, hundreds of teams across the world will compete in the Challenger Circuit. Teams that qualify via the regional Challenger Circuit events will compete in the Pro League Qualifiers in a bid to become a part of the top 40 Apex Legends teams for each region.
The top 40 regional teams in the Pro League will compete in a set of 12 matches in North America, South America, EMEA (Europe, Middle East, and Africa), APAC (Asia Pacific) North, APAC South qualifier events.
The top teams will advance to the world championships while other teams will get a second chance by competing in Split 2. After Split 2, the top 40 teams globally will be participating in the world championships next year.
