ALGS Championship 2021 Regions & Format
There were several ways to qualify for the Championship this season. All five regions (EMEA, NA, APAC South, APAC North and SA) had 10 teams qualifying via the Winter Circuit, while an additional 15 to 25 teams (varying per region) qualify entirely through ALGS points. Finally, a Last Chance Qualifier determined 4 or 5 additional competitor teams in each region.
By the end of it all, each region has either 20, 30 or 40 teams competing in a round-robin setup at the ALGS Championship. The points accumulated in this stage will send teams onward to the regional finals, which use the match point format. They prize money start getting handed out in the Regional Finals stage!

Additionally to the main prize money, the ‘Apex Predator’ will also get an additional bonus. In other words, the players with the most kills in the finals will get a few thousand extra. If multiple players are tied for the position, the money will be split between them equally.
