Advantages and Controversies

By doing this, FACEIT is improving the competitive Apex Legends scene as they did with PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds. As the game is still in its infancy, time will tell as to whether this game can capture the wider audience, similar to rivals Fortnite.

However, this is a huge step in the right direction, and FACEIT and playing their part in helping Apex Legends as much as they can.

Controversially, some of the invited teams don’t include Sentinels, Rogue and, Team Liquid. Rogue is the standout name and was the winner of the TwitchCon Europe Showdown, which was the biggest event for Apex Legends so far, with Rogue winning a total of $74,000 USD.

How to watch

The events will be live from Twitch.tv/FACEITTV for every match, though it is yet unknown of the format in how these will be streamed. It’s likely that Apex will be no exception to the curse of Battle Royale esports with spectating being tricky, but we’re excited to see how it is undertaken. The matches will commence on May 31st.
