What Is Apex Legends?
Before thinking about playing it, you need to know what this game actually is about. Falling under the category of battle royale and shooter games is game is free to play and supports cross-platform performances. Developed and published by Respawn Entertainment and Electronic Arts respectively this game was initially made available for Xbox One, Microsoft Windows, PlayStation $ and later was made available to Nintendo Switch in 2021.
Its mobile phone version will be made available (scheduled release on 2022) soon titled Apex Legends Mobile for all android and IOS devices and will be designed for all touchscreens.
How To Play?
The game has two distinct gameplay modes. Before the match starts players have to form squads and they can either form 2-2 squads or 3-3 squads. After that, every player selects a ‘Legend’ or a character with specific skills and abilities as their skill sets.
In one of the modes known as ‘battle royale’, more than 20 to 30 squads two or three player squads try to defeat each other’s squads in combat after searching for and picking up weapons and first aid/ refill supplies, etc. the area available for gameplay on the map gradually keeps shrinking so that the players can be made to move around the map from time to time. If they move out of the marked play area the players will face death.
This can prove fatal for the entire team. Finally, the squad that remains alive till the very end wins the battle. In the other gameplay mode that is the ‘Arena’ players form 3 on 3 player squads and battle against their enemies in a deathmatch. The enemies also form three on three player squads. A definitive number of rounds when won by one of the two squads decides the winner of the match. Usually when the team is ahead of another team by a difference of two or three points, then the team with the most points wins.

Apex Legends tournaments are a mix of major and minor tournaments with different rules for participation and for qualifying. Previously in the EMEA championship and the North American championship, a total number of 40 teams had participated and in the APAC North and South and the South American Championship a total of 30 teams had participated.
The Championship commenced when teams were divided up to 10 teams in the Group Stage. Each group was then made to compete against each other in a Round Robin round and then the total points were made to make 20 teams to qualify overall into each of their region’s Championship Finals. A match point format in the finals was utilized and total prize money of USD $1,00,000 was awarded to the winning team.
The prize amount in the prize pool for the winning teams minus the awards for the winning teams of the Apex Predator Tournament as laid down in the ALGs Official Rules was $1,02,000 and for North America and EMEA, $68,100 for APAC North and South and $42,000 for South America and all the amounts were in USD format.
