Apex Legends Global Series Online Tournaments to continue amid coronavirus outbreak 1

Respawn Entertainment has announced that the Apex Legends Global Series (ALGS) Online Tournaments will go ahead as planned.

Online Tournament #2 will take place this weekend from March 21 to March 23 featuring Diamond IV+ competitors who registered to compete in the tournament.

Players participating in Online Tournament #2 will now only be competing for ALGS points. The top 20 players will receive ALGS points that determine which players receive reserved spots in a Global Series Major and seeding in future tournaments.

Previously announced prizes of Live Event Travel and Qualification for the GLL Paris Premier Event #1 are no longer available considering the postponement of live events.

The first Major was scheduled to take place in Arlington, Texas, from March 13-15 but was postponed because of the widespread coronavirus pandemic and advice to ban mass gatherings.

On March 13, a tweet from Gabe “Gabeismon” Brunelle revealed that EA was offering up to $1,500 reimbursements for personal, non-refundable, travel-related costs for players who were impacted by the short-notice event cancellation.

Registration for the third Online Tournament opens on March 24 and the event is scheduled to take place on April 4 & 6.

EA and Respawn announced the Apex Legends Global Series in December 2019. The series features a prize pool of more than USD $3 million and allows players from around the world to compete against each other at the highest level of competitive Apex Legends esports.
