The Twitch Rivals Apex Legends Tournament is going down this week, testing the mettle of some of the world's best streamers. Apex Legends has only been out in the wild for a week, but the top streamers on Twitch are already getting to work on who the best players in the world are. The participants range from well-known variety streamers to hardened esports ringers and all of them are vying for their share of $200,000.

I <3 Team Pepega
Can't believe they screwed up the team name on Reid's Money Crew.. amateur hour over at Rivals.
Dang, seems like wins should be worth more. I never watched ninja play, guess he has some skillz.
If you watched it then you would have seen it was Dizzy with the insane skills. Not to say Ninja isn’t good, but Dizzy was on a different level than the entire bracket of players.
Do they play against one another, or in random public games?
It was public games, because the game doesn’t support custom games yet. Honestly it wasn’t that fun to watch other than to highlight some insanely good players. I think Dizzy was the one who came out of nowhere for a lot of people.
But yeah I hope to see a proper tournament soon.
