The Apex Legends Preseason Invitational is now underway. Eighty top-tier teams will be competing in Kraków, Poland for a $500,000 prize pool. The three-day competition began Sept. 13 and the finals kick off tomorrow.
The Invitational is the battle royale’s most lucrative tournament to date, with the first-place team earning a whopping $105,000.
Some of the players and teams competing at this event include FlyQuest’s Bowen “Monsoon” Fuller, who made waves when Michael “shroud” Grzesiek called him the “best player in Apex Legends” after an insane Kraber headshot. TSM—Jordan “Reps” Wolfe, Mac “Albralelie” Kenzie Beckwith, and Phillip “ImperialHal” Dosen—will also make another professional appearance after winning the gold medal at the EXP Invitational last month.
The tournament uses a double-elimination format with a winners and losers bracket. All teams start off in the winners bracket for round one. The top 10 teams at the end of three matches move on to the next winners bracket round. The bottom 10 teams will fall to the losers bracket for another three matches.
Eliminations award teams with one point, while finishing first place in a round will grant a team 12 points. Second place gets nine points, third place gets seven, and the points continue to be doled out at smaller increments until 16th to 20th place, who get zero.
