This tournament was initially set to take place on September 23, 2021, but was postponed to October 7, 2021, due to the myriad of server issues that the players were facing at the time.

The tournament will also feature a change in the format owing to the rules allowing teams to have stacked professional players. This means amateur players getting killed easily by Apex Legends players who play the game for over eight hours every day.

The new format states that each team can have only one former or current professional player, one Apex Legends content creator, and one player that streams various games on their channel. This will balance out the teams breaking the previous competitive structure of the tournament.

The previous format featured a draft system which will also be removed. Captains of the team get to pick streamers and content creators of their choice to join their team. The event organizers highlighted that they want to maintain the competitive integrity and ensure a level playing field. Therefore the teams will be carefully inspected by the organizers.
