The Apex Legends Global Series Championship 2022 is the pinnacle of ALGS Year 2 for all professional Apex players. The tournament will take place in Raleigh, North Carolina from July 7 to 10. The ALGS Championship 2022 event boasts a $2 million prize pool for all 40 teams involved.
Format for ALGS Championship 2022
The ALGS Championship will kick off with a group stage on July 7 with the 40 teams divided into four groups of 10. All groups will take turns playing one another in a six-game series — at the end of the group stage, each team will have played 18 games in total. While there are no eliminations in the group stage, this stage will determine seeding going into the bracket stage.
The first ten teams with the highest score in the group stage will automatically be placed in round 2 of the winner’s bracket. The twenty teams after them will start in the winner’s bracket’s first round, while the ten teams in last begin in the losers bracket. The bracket stage will consist of two eight-game series in both the winners and losers brackets. The top ten teams from the winner’s bracket will advance to the finals, while the other 10 will fall to the losers bracket. From here, only the top 10 teams will advance to the next round of the losers bracket; the rest will be eliminated.
Round two of the losers bracket is the final portion of the bracket stage, and will determine the last ten teams that will qualify for the finals. The ALGS Championship 2022 finals will feature the top twenty teams with no match limits. Once a team attains 50 points in the finals, they become match point eligible. Whichever team wins a match after reaching match point eligibility wins the tournament. This format makes it possible for any team to take the victory, as it requires not only 50 points, but a match win afterwards.
