Apex Legends has launched what it is calling the Stay & Play initiative. Basically what this means is that the Global Series tournaments are going to make a shift from physical to online. In addition, Online Tournaments are now going to have a $100,000 prize pool in addition to handing out ALGS points.

Before we dive a little deeper into the changes happening to the Online Tournament, it’s important to know what’s happening with the other events. The PGL Bucharest Premier Event #2, for example, was initially scheduled for May 30 to May 31, but has been postponed. No new date has been given.

Online Tournament #3

If you’ve been following the ALGS, the you probably know that two Online Tournaments have already been held and there are four remaining. Online Tournament #3 starts tomorrow, with the prize pool being divided into these different regions:

  • North America: $23,000
  • Europe: $23,000
  • South America: $9,000
  • South Korea: $9,000
  • Japan: $9,000
  • Greater Southeast Asia: $9,000
  • Australia & New Zealand: $9,000
  • Middle East & Africa: $9,000

The Finals for this tournament are set for April 6 with the North America finals scheduled to begin at 8:45 p.m. EDT. Matches for North America and Europe are going to be streamed live through the official Twitch and YouTube channels.

Other Online Tournaments

For Online Tournaments #4, #5, and #6, they’re also going to have a $100,000 prize pool with a breakdown similar to Online Tournament #3. Here are the schedules for these tournaments:

  • Online Tournament #4
