ALGS Championship 2022 Format
The road to the Apex Legends Global Championship 2022 has been long this season. Teams competed in various playoffs, splits, and leagues to get here. While, they’ve qualified they still have quite a few stages to get through before they reach the finals.
Group and Bracket Stages
Things kick off with a group stage. This is going to be played in full on July 7th. The 40 teams at the tournament will be split up into groups. These will be four groups of ten teams. Each of these groups has six series to play. Following the group stage, the twenty highest teams will move to the winners bracket. However, the twenty lowest to the loser’s bracket.
The Bracket Stage takes place from July 8-9th. This sees two eight-game series being played in the winners bracket. While there are also two in the losers bracket. The top ten teams from the winners are going to move to the Final. Although, the others will move into the losers bracket. The first round of this sees the top ten teams move on and the others eliminated. In the second round, all the remaining teams play with ten more advancing to the finals.

ALGS Championship 2022 Finals
The finals are where we reach the climax. Here the best twenty teams in the world fight it out. This is going to use a match point formula for scoring. There’s no overall limit to matches in the finals. Once a team hits 50 points, they become ’match point eligible’. Once they have this status, they’ve got to win a game. If they manage this then they’ll be the overall winner of the event. The other places are going to be decided by final overall points.
This kind of a format could mean a team can win without having the highest point total. While placement and elims are important for getting match point, it’s just one factor that decides the winner. This is going to make every match count in the ALGS 2022 format.
