On this page you'll find the Twitch Rivals Apex Legends Challenge stream, start times, dates and confirmed participants.
Another Twitch Rivals event is coming up on the horizon, this time taking in the phenomenally successful new battle royale game Apex Legends.
Produced in collaboration between Twitch and the developers Respawn, the Apex Legends Challenge will see 48 well-known streamers knocking seven bells out of each other for their piece of a $200,000 prize pool.
As with similar Twitch Rivals events, the prize money will be split equally between both the European and North American regions.
There'll also be two separate competitions per region, and taking place on both days, so each of the four tournaments in total have a $50,000 prize pool.
The prize money will then be split between the best-performing teams within each tournament.
First up, here's an embed of the official stream so you can dive right in if you've just got here:
There are two stages to the competition. On each of these days there'll be a clash between the North American teams, and a separate battle for the European participants to tuck into.
Here are the dates:
- Tuesday 12th February 2019
- Tuesday 19th February 2019
The European matches will take place first, with the North American matches following immediately afterwards.
Here are the start times for all events on both the 12th and 19th February:
- Europe: 5:00pm GMT / 6:00pm CET / 9:00am PT / 12:00pm ET
- North America: 9:00pm GMT / 10:00pm CET / 1:00pm PT / 4:00pm ET
As there are two regions, there'll be 24 competitors taking part per region.
Those 24 will further be split down into groups of three, as per the game's standard play mode.
So, eight teams of three players on each of the competition's regions.
As for the scoring structure, it looks like this:
- Wins = 5 points
- Individual Kills = 1 point
Points will then be tallied up to determine the finishing position of each team.
