Less than a week ago, Apex Legends had its first competitive tournament and today it returns with another. Guy “DrDisrespect” Beahm is facilitating a Code Red tournament later today with a $20,000 prize pool. Here are the details on how to watch some of Twitch’s biggest celebrities compete for money.
The tournament takes place later today, officially getting underway at 3pm CT. There’s no official time for when the tournament will end, but it will conclude once a team has won.
Eight teams made up of three players are participating in the Code Red tournament. Each team is comprised of notable Twitch streamers, like DrDisrespect, Tyler “Ninja” Blevins, and Jaryd “Summit1G” Lazar. Ninja is playing on the same team that won the Twitch Rivals Apex Legends tournament earlier in the week.
Each team will compete in a double-elimination bracket for the most squad kills in a public match. Kills are recorded over a stretch of three games, and whoever has the most after the series will move on in the bracket. If a tiebreaker is necessary, a fourth map will be played. Teams gain one point for kills and eight points for winning maps.
In the grand finals of the tournament, the top team in the losers bracket will have to win two matches to be the champion. The team coming to the grand finals from the winners bracket will only need to win one match.
In total, there’s $20,000 up for grabs in this tournament. The team that finishes first will earn $12,000, with second place receiving $5,000 and third place getting $3,000.
Where to watch
You will be able to watch teams compete in the tournament from the players’ individual Twitch streams. Additionally, the Esports Arena will host the official livestream of the tournament.
