As you can see, the Apex Legends Code Red tournament is surprisingly stacked for an event that isn’t an official one hosted by the game’s publisher EA. The final team of Dr Disrespect, Shroud, and Bnans is especially impressive and will be one of the main ones to watch.
With the advent of custom games over the last few months in Apex Legends, it will make it much easier for an event like this one to happen in the battle royale game. It won’t be just one match either that the 60 players divided into teams of three will be competing in.
Instead, it will be six matches in total that will determine the placements of the teams and the overall division of the prize money. The rules of the matches are simple, not allowing the players to farm the respawns in the game or place any points.
The six matches will feature teams competing not necessarily for wins in the matches but mainly eliminations. Each elimination that a team gets during the tournament will count for one point. Those points will tally up throughout the six matches to give each team a total point count.
The teams with the most points will get the highest placement in the leaderboard. The best team will be the one with the most points. If things don’t go to plan and there is a tie between the teams after the six rounds are over, there will be other stats involved for any tiebreakers.
It will first go to the number of rounds that each team won during the event. For instance, if two teams have the same number of points at the end of the event but one of them has three wins and the other only one, the former team will be the winner of the two.
If it doesn’t resolve the problem, it will go to the player from each team with the highest number of eliminations. If that still does not work, it will then go to the second-highest players and so on until a winner is decided.
Prize Money and Placements
The teams will receive prizes based on how good they did during the six rounds. The prize pool begins with the team that comes in 10th place out of the 20 teams competing. They will receive $1,200 for their participation in the event.
The ninth-place team receives $1,500, the eighth-place team getting $1,800, seventh place receiving $2,100, and sixth place getting $2,700. From there, it grows even more with fifth place getting $3,300, fourth receiving $4,400, and third place having $6,000 in prize money.
Second and first place get the most prize money out of all the other teams with a whopping $12,000 and $15,000, respectively, for a total of $50,000 in the prize pool.
