How does the Apex Rising Charity Pro Am work?

Apex Rising sees 40 teams fight in ALGS tournament format, which means a double-elimination set-up spread over two days. The most unique aspect of Apex Rising is the team composition, which places one pro player, one influencer or content creator, and pro amateur player into a team. For a more in-depth look into how Apex Rising works, check out our guide here.

Jon “Falloutt” Kefaloukos specifically made this charity tournament to fill a gap in the esports ecosystem since there aren’t many mid to small-range tournaments in the Apex Legends scene. You can read more about why Falloutt created this tournament in our exclusive interview here!

Apex Rising allows smaller creators, including casters, to engage with a bigger audience and connect with other community members. Over time, this will help grow the Apex Legends community and help more players and creators find success. Hopefully, we'll see more mid-range tournaments like Apex Rising in the future.

Special shoutouts

Since I was selected to play in Apex Rising Charity Pro Am 2.0, I’d like to give a special shoutout to my teammates on Team Xeriffer! You and Franco Samuel “xeriffer” Korompai and Bryan “iShiny” McCarthy, both of whom stream regularly on Twitch should definitely check out. Both were (obviously) extremely cracked at Apex while simultaneously being the kindest teammates, guiding a Platinum (at best) player like myself through a lobby full of players like ImperialHal, Hakis, Apryze, and Voltic.

Additional shoutout to Tom Bull, who cast the event and also writes for esports.gg! Check out his articles here.
