ATK Arena Apex Legends take third place in ALGS Online Tournament
Mar 24, 2020 10:25 am
In January, the ATK Apex Legends team qualified for the first Apex Legends Global Series (ALGS) Major to be held in Texas. However, things didn’t go as planned, and EA had to postpone the Major after the team travelled there to compete. This was, of course, due to the global COVID-19 pandemic. In response and while postponing ALGS live events, EA announced that the next online tournament for the ALGS would have prize money, with teams across regions competing for their share of $300,000 over the past weekend.

More ALGS action to come
While the future of live events is uncertain at this point, due to the COVID-19 pandemic, there’s some more Apex Legends esports action to look forward to. EA announced recently that they are working on plans to increase the number of online tournaments with prize money. Further, the ALGS Online Tournament 3 registrations open on 24 March.
This tournament is scheduled to run from 4 to 6 April 2020, with all the regions included as with previous online tournaments. We look forward to and hope to see the ATK Arena Apex Legends team compete in the third online tournament.
We wish these awesome local players all the best of luck in all future Apex Legends tournaments they enter.
