Australian esports media and tournament platform, Mogul, has launched the very first local tournament for battle royale newcomer, Apex Legends, and it’s open to anyone in the country. If you reckon you’re a shit-hot player, you and your team could win a share of $35,000 in prize money.
The Australian Apex Open will be a PC-only event with qualifying rounds set to kick off on April 15. Hopefuls will need to compete in a minimum of four matches, with the top 20 teams to progress based on a points system.
There will be a total of four qualifiers, knockout rounds, and then the finals. The winning team will take home a total of $15,000, with the rest to be divided amongst the remaining top nine teams.
You can see how that all works out below.
Because the tournament is taking place on the Mogul platform, you and your mates don’t have to go anywhere to compete, it all happens online. Of course, that opens you up to things like internet dropouts and high pings, but because this is a local tournament, the risk should be fairly low, assuming your own connection is decent.
“Mogul brings a fresh approach to esports for Australian-based players,” Mogul chief strategy and commercial officer, Jamie Skella, said in a release. “Open to everyone, the Australian Apex Open is the first big money tournament for all Australians to compete in, not just a select group of invitees, and it’s free to enter.”
