Apex Legends Preseason Invitational Tournament
Electronic Arts and Respawn Entertainment have announced the Apex Legends Preseason Invitational, which is going to be the first-ever official Apex Legends tournament. It will be an invite-only tournament and will feature a total of 80 teams from all over the world.
Dates and location of The Invitational
The Apex Legends Preseason Invitational is currently scheduled to be held in Krakow, Poland. It will be a three-day event and will be held from September 13th till the 15th. Teams that are interested in participating in this tournament can simply apply for it by sending an email to [email protected] with their Origin ID. Keep in mind that the spots are limited, so you will have to act quickly in order to secure a spot.
Confirmed prize pool
The organizers have also confirmed that the prize pool for this tournament is going to be $500,000. This means that the 80 selected teams are going to compete for half a million dollars. The winning team will receive $105,000, the second team will get $75,000, while the third, fourth and fifth team will get $60,000, $48,000, and $39,000 respectively. Although interested teams will have to pay a $150 registration fee, it will be worth it if they make it to the top 5.
Apex Legends competitive scene is surely rising. It is important to know that the invitational isn’t the only big tournament of Apex that is going to be held in the coming months. In August, we will get to see a major Apex Legends tournament at the 2019 X Games. However, unlike the Apex Legends Preseason Invitational, the X Games tournament is going to feature some invited teams as well as some local teams who earned a spot through the qualifiers. In any case, both tournaments are going to help give a boost to Apex’s competitive scene.
