According to Jamie Skella, the Chief Strategy and Commercial officer of Mogul, they want to bring a fresh approach to Esports for the players based in Australia. He further revealed that instead of inviting several specific teams, they have decided to make the tournament free to enter for everyone. This means that unlike other major tournaments out there, any Apex Legends team can compete in the Apex Open.
Stages of Apex Open
The qualifiers round of the Apex Open have already begun and will last until May 12. Around 20 teams will be selected from the qualifiers round, who will then compete in the knockout round which will be held from May 14 to 17. The knockout round will be divided into four groups, and around 8 teams will be able to secure a spot in the finals after them. The finals, on the other hand, will take place on May 19 and they will decide which team will win the first ever Apex Legends tournament of Australia. For those wondering, the finals are going to follow the single elimination format.
On the other hand, Jamie Skella has also claimed that this is only the start for Apex Legends in Australia. According to him, Mogul is able to host a series of tournaments, meaning that players in Australia will soon get to see some more tournaments other than the Apex Open.
Apex Legends fans living in Australia are surely going to enjoy a lot in the Apex Open. Players always want a platform through which they can showcase their skills to the rest of the world. Mogul is also really committed to making eSports a big thing in Australia, so we will get to see some exciting new events soon.
