NiceWigg Apex Legends Trios Tourney format and prizing

The event will follow the standard Battle Royale trios format. All three of Worlds Edge, Storm Point and Olympus will be played. The scoring system will be familiar to those of you who are fans of the ALGS, with points for placement and kills.

However, like most Twitch Rivals Apex events there is a twist with the format. The event will see Legend restrictions.

Each map will have a set list of legends that must be used in the game. Players cannot choose any Legends other than the ones specified for that game. We don't have the legend lists as things stand, they will only be revealed 5 minutes before each match.

However, we do have the Legend class compositions for the lists:
