With the April 28th start date of APEX Season 3 drawing near, we’ve been able to enjoy a steady flow of information to hold us until the start of the season. Most recently, EnVyUs was announced to be the second international team traveling to Korea to compete in the tournament this season. Our latest break has been insight into the groups for the initial round of the competition.
The initial groups will be played in a round robin format with the top two teams from each group advancing to the second group stage of the tournament. The bottom two teams from each group will continue to compete in a separate promotion tournament. Initial group stage matches will be played in a best-of-five format with each team earning 3 points per victory and 0 for a loss. Map pool for the five round matches are as follows:
- 1st: Control Map
- 2nd: Assault/Escort Map
- 3rd: Assault Map
- 4th: EscortMap
- 5th: Assault/Escort Map
Teams denoted with * were reported here.
Update: Groups now fully confirmed by OGN (thanks xou!)
