How to watch Apex Legends’ X Games tournament: streams and schedule

Octane celebrating in Apex Legends as explosions go off behind him

The X Games are normally the home of extreme sports like motocross and skateboarding, but this weekend Apex Legends is joining the competition. At X Games Minneapolis on Aug. 2-3, 20 teams of three will face off for the tournament’s prize pool of $150,000.

The teams competing in the tournament arrived through a combination of invitations, a system that it seems Respawn will continue to use for future tournaments, and an online qualifier. With the exception of a few of that made it through the online qualifier, most of the teams at the tournament are sponsored by professional esports organizations like Team Liquid, TSM, Cloud9, and Fnatic.

The competing teams will play 12 matches over the two-day tournament. Teams will earn points for how well they do in each match. Teams will be awarded points based on what place they finish each match in, as well as gaining one point for every elimination. Here’s a breakdown of the finishing points for the tournament:

  • 1st — 12 points
  • 2nd — 9 points
  • 3rd — 7 points
  • 4th — 5 points
  • 5th — 4 points
  • 6th – 10th — 2 points
  • 11th – 15th — 1 point
  • 16th – 20th — 0 points

Every match will be livestreamed. Viewers can watch on the ESPN app, as well as the ESPN Esports and EA Twitch channels. The games will also be live on ESPN Esports’ YouTube and Twitter, and on Caffeine, ESPN Play (Spanish-speaking Latin America and the Caribbean), ESPN Player (EMEA and select Asian territories), and WatchESPN (Pac Rim and Brazil).
